About Terry M Portis

I have grown up fishing in this area, since the 1970s. Born and raised in Florida this was always my favorite location to vacation and fish. I have been bringing my wife and children here for the last 25 years.

Terry M Portis purchased this condo in 2013

Why Terry M Portis chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This property became available at the right time for us. We had been looking and hoping for the perfect place and this is it. It provides convenience for my family with the ferry and a great dock for me when I bring my boat.

What makes this condo unique

This island is the best of both worlds for us. Lovely, relaxing beach and great fishing.

The welcoming island.

  • 5 of 5

The weather was perfect, the island was perfect, the condo we stayed in was in great shape, comfortable and with no problems, and the golf cart was a wonderful way to explore the island. The ferry, and the ferry schedule was very convenient and took away some of the stresses we experienced in the past when staying in single houses.

I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a place to really get away.

We had a wonderful week, swimming, snorkeling and exploring. My 5 year old daughter learned to swim and snorkel.. We enjoyed walking the beach and finding shark teeth!!!! The golf cart and beach cart was a big plus!

Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

Very Beautiful Condo! Everything you need is here! We picked up some groceries at Publix in Cape Haze, unloaded our vehicle and parked in gated lot. Easy ten minute Ferry ride to Paradise!! Everyone is friendly and helpful. The Golf Cart, Ferry and Heated Pool are included and made our vacation perfect!

great condo

  • 5 of 5

We rented this year from Terry for the first time. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone. The owner was very helpful as we worried which way tropical storm Erica would turn. He was thoughtful and concerned for our family. It all worked out for the best. Our family had a fantastic vacation and Erica fizzled. The condo is nicely decorated and our family loved the collection of board games, We will be back!

Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time on Little Gasparilla Island.Terry and Trish's condo has all the amenities you need to have fun at the beach! We made use of the beach chairs and umbrella and the cart to carry things to the beach.

Full size washer and dryer- made keeping up with laundry easy-you pack light you do laundry and bring home CLEAN CLOTHES! Beds were comfy cozy as was the living area. Thank you ,Terry and Trish :)

Terry was easily contacted for assistance. It was our 2nd trip to the island and we'll be back! Pack light and enjoy a piece of paradise-a great break from the hustle and bustle of the city

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from it all, this place is it. A beautiful 7 mile beach and sometimes we practically had it to ourselves. The condo was great and the golf cart was fun. Terry was great to work with. Very helpful and quick to respond. We had everything we needed and only left the island when we absolutely had to. We would love to come back sometime.
