My husband and I took a last-minute trip as part of my hip replacement rehab. I had been to Little Gasparilla many times with my children when they were young, and thought this would be the perfect place to relax with no commerce, noise or distractions, and spend a lot of time walking the beach and swimming. The particular condo faces the bay, and we enjoyed several home-cooked meals, prepared in a nicely updated kitchen, on the lanai facing the bay. A short walk to the beach every morning after a restful night's sleep in a very comfortable bed followed breakfast every day. This condo is adorable, and the ladies who own it are very easy to work with. They were also quite accommodating to our last minute travel plans. I would highly recommend this unit, and always love going to Little Gasparilla. One word of caution -- as we had an early flight, we had to leave the island before the first ferry run. In order to reserve the ferry for a 5-minute trek across the bay, we would have had to pay $###! Instead, we left the island the night before and got a hotel close to the airport for that night. I can certainly understand there being a surcharge for using the ferry outside of the regular operating times, but this was absolutely excessive. We had expected maybe $##, and of course, we would have tipped our captain well for his trouble. Water taxis in the area are also available, but they were even more than the $### quoted by the Hideaway captains. So if you have to catch an early flight out, you might consider renting for one less day and getting a hotel room the night before.
We really enjoyed the two weeks we spent on the island. The condos were very comfortable and well appointed. The people staying at Hideaway Bay were extremely friendly and accommodating, as were the employees and owner. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were extremely comfortable. The area was very restful, the beaches great and were not crowded. A great place for older and younger couples. Would highly recommend.
This is the second condo I have stayed at in Hideaway Bay. The unit's decor is beautiful - updated - warm and cozy. The kitchen was well equipped, the furniture and beds were comfortable, and the view of the bay made for a relaxing breakfast on the porch. We rented a golf cart for the week and enjoyed "sunset cruises" of the island each evening. Everything was as promised and I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a relaxing and comfortable place to getaway from the hustle and bustle.
The condo was nice and the location was great, especially with 2 small children. The ferry ride was perfect for trips to get supplies or dinners out and it was always on time. It would have been nice to know exactly how the ferry worked though, we arrived in time to catch the 10pm Ferry ride and when the Captain arrived he said that he almost did not come as we were supposed to wait back by the phone for him to call (wish we would have known this!). I would recommend bringing a MiFi device if you have one, as it does not really have WiFi like it claims to have. You are pulling the signal from a nearby building and when sitting in the condo it was very weak. My husband had some work he needed to do while on vacation and it became difficult since the signal kept dropping. We also had to track down the caretaker to receive the passwords. It would have been nice to have an umbrella for the beach like the other condos provided, almost all beach supplies were locked up. Overall I would say our stay was good until we arrived home and found that we were going to be charged for damage to a screen door that we never caused. Pam the owner claimed that we bent the metal flashing on the screen door which I would understand if we were a bunch of twenty something’s staying up late but we had two small children and were in bed every night by 10pm. After first using the screen door we contacted Pam informing her that the door wasn’t working properly and would not close all of the way. At that time she claimed that they have been having issues with the door and not to worry about it. We felt if that the door was having issues why didn’t Pam note it somewhere not to use the door to get fresh air into the condo.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and felt the condo suited our needs but because of the post vacation issues with Pam we could not recommend this condo to our friends.
