Overview

Florida South Central Gulf Coast Cottage Rental Photos and Description

This 3 bedroom 2 bathroom gem has recently been remodeled with a fresh coat of paint and tile throughout. With 1520 living sq feet and a total of 3276 sq feet, this spacious vacation home offers enough space to relax indoors or lounge on the wrap around porch. Between the house and beach is a vacant lot for an unspoiled view of the Gulf of Mexico. A brief walk and you are sinking your toes in the white sand with just a few more steps to wading in the crystal clear water.

Little Gasparilla Island is a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico that is only accessible by boat or water taxi. This serene spot offers approximately 7 miles of pristine natural shoreline, the perfect spot for rest and relaxation. LGI is residential and does not have any commercial businesses (i.e. restaurants or grocery stores) with the exception of golf cart rental/repair.

About Paris Cousins

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

Why Paris Cousins chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This is a wonderful location for beachcombing and catching up on your vacation novel. A brief walk and you are on the pristine white sandy beaches of Little Gasparilla Island.

Spacious screened-in porch surrounding three sides of the home. Open floor plan allowing company to enjoy each other from most rooms and still having the privacy of bedrooms.

What makes this cottage unique

An ocean view while doing the mundane of washing dishes seems like much less of a chore. The openess of this home with natural lighting from two sky-lights is peaceful and relaxing the moment you step inside.

Very well kept

  • 5 of 5

My family and a family friends of ours stayed at the property and we had a great time. The house was well equipped and everyone was comfortable. The ocean is walking distance and when we were there, the beach was just fantastic! Our kids had lots of fun picking up shells and diving to find dollar shells!

The property of Sandy Toes

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Sandy Toes. The owner was extremely attentive to us and greeted us shortly after our arrival. When ever we had a problem he was right there to fix it. It was a very comfortable cottage. Vincent and Susan Kelley.

We loved staying at Sandy Toes.

  • 4 of 5

The living area was spacious and comfortable. House was clean and had plenty of towels and other linens.

Only one thing could make it perfect and that is a dishwasher. Otherwise it was great. We would definitely stay at Sandy Toes again.

My favorite vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed on the Island recently. We met the owner who was extremely helpful and friendly. He not only checked on us to make sure everything was okay but he gave us information that was helpful in navigating the island from the boat. He also bailed us out when we left property belonging to Sandy Toes on our rental boat. With his help we were able to get the property back to the house in time for the next guests! This spot is my all time favorite vacation place. The home is large with excellent accommodations and is just a short walk from the beach. We visited two state parks that were both absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend Sandy Toes and Ocean Views!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your recent stay! We strive to ensure our guests are comfortable and have all that they need while on the island. Thankfully the homeowner was on the island and able to assist with the transportation of the items belonging to Sandy Toes. We look forward to having you return next year!
