This 3/2 cottage has recently been updated and will accommodate two families. The unique Crab Trap is a sleeping area for a young child. This is a great location with a stunning view of Gasparilla Sound and it's majestic sunrises. A private dock out the front door provides a perfect place to catch local fish and spy on the fascinating underwater life. Turning on the dock lights at night provides a glimpse into what could be called a snook aquarium. While being located on the bay, there is a leisure block and a half stroll to the beach. Swimming, strolling, collecting shells and sun bathing are a few of the relaxing activities available once you reach the white sandy beaches.
Upon returning to the cottage from your day at the beach, enjoy rinsing off in the refreshing outdoor shower. Then soak in the views of the dolphin jumping in the bay while relaxing on the screened in porch and realize just how blessed you are.
The full sized kitchen is ready for use with a refridgerator, oven/stove, dishwasher, coffee pot and microwave. It is also stocked with dishes and other necessary utensils.
Linens and towels are supplied for your convenience.
There is a quaint chapel located in the center part of the island, in a section called the Preserve, on the main road. Services are held every Sunday at 9:30 during the summer months and at 10:30 during the winter. These are non-denominational services offered for a time of worship and fellowship for all who visit Little Gasparilla Island.
My wife and I (both 5th generation Floridians) have been coming here since 1975. We just love the area and the unique nature of Little Gasparilla Island. Our daughter grew up here on family vacations and now our twin grandaughters are discovering all the wonders of LGI.
Paris Cousins purchased this cottage in 2012
If you love to fish or desire a great view of Gasparilla Sound, this is the place. The fishing is fantastic on the private dock. At night, you can turn on the light and see what looks like your own snook aquarium. The dock also makes it easy to unload you luggage and then kick back and relax.
The long private dock in front of this cottage has made the neighbors jealous for years.
Fantastic views of Gasparilla Sound and breathtaking sunrises each morning are seen from the screened-in front porch.
Miles of sandy beaches are a short walk away.
We absolutely had an amazing time @ Dock Envy......the location was perfect, the house was very comfortable & accomidating. Hands down was the best place we have stayed on this island & we have been visiting LGI since our children were young....and it was special to share this memory with our granddaughters that by the way did not want to leave Dock Envy because they loved it so much. The evening trips to the end of the dock every evening for night Snook party was so crazy to watch & we all loved it despite them apparently knowing "it was not snook season" so a lot of catch & release. I have never caught that many snook in my life as I did that week....they were everywhere. The girls loved the beach and the golf cart was a plus for that for sure. We also enjoyed our afternoon boat trips to the sandbar where we enjoyed cooling off as did our Golden Retriever Rascal...loved it!!!! The daily sightings of Dolphins, Manatee & Tarpon was so cool. Awesome sunsets too. Anyway, LOVED OUR STAY, and can't wait to go back. Thank you very much :)
We have vacationed on Little Gasparilla Island for over ten years but this was by far our best accommodations. The view is spectacular, private dock which accommodated our three boats. Fishing from the dock at night was incredible, catching snook, trout, flounder, grouper and snapper. The home was clean and well stocked with all the items you need. A magnificent beach is just a short walk from the home and golf carts are available for rent on the island but be sure to reserve in advance. Great time and looking forward to returning in the future.
Great views of the Boca Grande and the bay. Very convenient for fishing. Didn't want to leave.
House was better than expected. If your staying to fish great location easy in and out. Met homeowner who was eager to help out with anything. Porches were a big hit with our group. If anything good have been better it was docking was tight for two boats unless you uaed the front of dock(which is awesome for fishing at night) Homeowner did share he was making improvements.
Great view of the bay from the house and dock. Private dock for your boat is a plus and the walk is short to one of Florida's nicest beaches. House will easily accommodate a family or two couples. The owner is very helpful. We'll be back.
Our family spent a week at Dock Envy on LGI. We thoroughly enjoyed the views! We fished off the docks and were able to watch dolphins during our stay. A manatee ventured near the dock as well on one occasion. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We will be back!
Little Gasparilla Island (LGI) is a bridgeless & roadless barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, between Tampa and Naples. You leave your car at one of the marinas and take a 10-15 minute boat ride to the private dock and cottage. The island is approximately 7 miles long and approximately 1/4-1/2 mile wide. LGI is the perfect place to wind down and relax. You can take leisurely strolls on the beach, or explore the interior of the island along the many sandy paths. An option is to rent a golf cart, grab a cooler and just take your Sunday drive anytime you want. What about that book you have been wanting to read or going fishing either at the end of the dock or on a boat (either yours or a rental). Guides are also available in the area.
