The 'La Te Da' house is a two story key west style home located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. The backyard is a private beach, you are simply foot steps away from beautiful turquoise water and sandy beach. We are next to Boca Grande, which is known for the world famous tarpon fishing tournaments. Also, a great beach for shell and shark tooth collectors!
Our home has 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and complete laundry room located inside the house. Accomodations for up to 6, (2 king size beds, with memory foam topper, 1 queen size bed and 1 bunk bed)
All bed linens and bath/beach towels are supplied for your convenience. There is a fully equipped kitchen with coffee maker, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, flat top stove, oven, reverse osmosis water purifier, cooking utensils, blender, toaster, etc..
This home has a lovely screened in porch with a big table that seats 6 outside with an incredible breeze and beautiful views of the gulf. There is a propane barbeque grill. Perfect for any and every meal!
The master bedroom upstairs has a glass sliding door that opens up to another balcony with more fabulous views of the private beach. Also great for looking at stars! All bedrooms have hd flat screen TV's. The living room has a DVR so you can record your favorite programs while at the beach.
The house is a non smoking environment and we ask that you please smoke outside. We do allow pets but they must be approved prior to rental. There is a dock to dock your boat or you can use the water taxi to have access to the island.
We are one of the only houses that take your trash for you! Just put your trash in the garbage bin and we will take it for you! We rented on the island before purchasing and didn't like lugging our trash off the island at the end of our vacation.
All you need is groceries, bathing suit, and you're ready to have a great vacation! Lateda is the Perfect place to make lasting memories! I know our family has!
We recently purchased this home so we are doing some updates (some fresh paint and fun stuff) Pictures of the home will be available as we finish rooms.. House will be available Nov 1, 2012. We are already taking bookings!
This is kind of a family adventure. My grandmother, mom, husband, me, and my two children are all involved with the beach house. We all live in Port Charlotte, Florida. My mom and Grammy just moved down from Sarasota, Fl to be closer to us. They are now 2 streets away! We decided to purchase this house so we can make great memories! We have already and hope you do to!
Kim purchased this house in 2012
Little Gasparilla Island is very unique. It is very private and very secluded! I love that you don't hear any car horns or traffic. You are completely surrounded by nature. I think that is what makes this island so special!
My husband and I, along with my daughter and her husband, spent a glorious week at La Te Da. Thank you Kim and family!! We rate it as one of the calmest, most enjoyable times we've spent together. From fishing on both beach and dock, to hours of beach walking and shelling we enjoyed every minute. The lanai was perfect for dining, reading, and sorting through shells (I read 3 books!). We rented a golf cart, though we could have lived without it. Midweek we took Emmett's water taxi back to the mainland and explored Boca Grande, bought a few more groceries, and restocked our libations.
The house was decorated in simple, beach cottage style--lovely. The beds were especially comfy. A special bonus was the variety of condiments and supplies stocked in the cupboards and refrigerator. We met neighbors on both sides and discovered island shop in a home on the north end of the residential area, as well as the island's lending library.
The outdoor shower was exquisite. Something about the sound of the surf. Let me sum it up our stay in a word: Perfect.
The freshly painted home with 3 decks overlooking the gulf was awesome! Sunsets of every color and super quiet to enjoy outside of the hustle and bustle of regular life. My dog could not get enough.
My wife and I had a FANTASTIC time at La Te Da! The home was exactly as shown....very comfortable, well equipped and right on the beach. Kim was extremely easy to work with and very accommodating. She went out of her way to ensure that every expectation was met. The island information that she provided to us in advance of the trip, made the trip a smooth transition from the mainland to the island. We enjoyed a very peaceful and memorable trip!
The home was truly beachfront and very comfortable. The kitchen appliances are actually stainless steel - nicer than shown in the existing images. The views from the master bedroom and the upstairs deck, are priceless. There is nothing better than sitting on the upper deck, having a drink and soaking in the sun and the extended beach views. I really appreciated the fact that the home was more than adequately supplied with linen, towels, dishes, kitchen cookware, beach chairs, etc.
We thoroughly enjoyed eating dinner on the screened in porch, grilling on the deck, reading in the lounge chairs and watching the sunset....very special! Personally, I enjoyed watching the dolphins, manatee, gopher turtles, numerous variety of birds and fish on a daily basis. The shelling on the beach has to be the best in Florida.
My husband and I wanted to do something memorable for both of our father's 80th birthdays which both happen to be in August. We rented La Te Da for the week with all of our parents and had an awesome time. We spent every morning out on the deck drinking our coffee and enjoying the beach view and every evening taking breathtaking photos of the sunsets. We went fishing, shelling, swimming (manatee swam right in front of us!) and just plain relaxing. We all really enjoyed the week spending time with each other and making memories at this beautiful place! We will definitely plan another trip there.
Had a great week of vacation with family of four (two young girls) and a dog. The house had everything we needed and then some. It felt like a home on the beach vs. a beach house. Great for fishing, kayaking, shelling, manatees, dolphins and exploring. The only challenge with this vacation was bringing a weeks worth of stuff (food etc). In the end It really wasn't that bad, and we brought just the right amount of stuff. It would have been easier had we rented a golf cart to get everything from the dock. We look forward to going back as soon as we can!
Great house! You will not be disappointed, great place to spend a week or more on Little Gasparilla Island. Such a peaceful and relaxing vacation. Kim was great to work with and she did everything to ensure or stay was enjoyable. The beach is beautiful!
