Awesome Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo provided our family with an awesome getaway and perfect opportunity to spend time together. It was our first visit to LGI, and we had beautiful weather (sunny and 80s) every day. We enjoyed jumping waves in the warm Gulf water, exploring the island on the golf cart (we rented from Julie), playing games, doing puzzles and enjoying family meals on the lanai with the sound of ocean waves in the background. It's difficult to see the ocean from the condo due to palm trees separating the complex from the beach, but the ocean is merely a short walk through the "backyard." I believe it's probably one of the closest units to the beach. The island is full of beauty, fun, relaxation and shells galore. The condo had enough space for our family of five and was well equipped with kitchen needs and beach toys. Julie even provided a crockpot upon my request. The ferry rides were a great free service, but you do have to be careful to plan the times correctly when leaving and returning to the island. Julie was very helpful in providing us directions on our way there and was available when we had questions. She promptly sent us back our deposit upon our return.

Great time on Little Gasparilla Island!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Very quiet, relaxing with beautiful beaches on Little Gasparilla Island! Being native Floridian's this was our first trip to the island and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The condo was very well stocked from the kitchen to all the "beach toys". You can come and make yourself right at home! The owner was also very helpful with any questions we had. It was nice having a ferry right at your finger tips so you could come and go pretty much as you please.

Great time on LGI

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful month on Little Gasperella Island in Julie's condo at the Hideaway Bay Resort. The unit is perfectly located, with views of a pond and the ocean. In addition the unit is meticulously maintained. All appliance and the flat screen televisions were new, or nearly new and in perfect working order, as was the Golf cart. The tile floors downstairs and carpeting upstairs also looked new. The beds linens and shower curtains looked fresh and it looked like the bathroom sinks were new. Finally, Julie was very quick to answer questions, responding to our emails within a few hours. LGI is a special place and Julie's condo made our stay especially enjoyable.

The island is a little bit of heaven. We stayed 5 weeks. Enjoyed lovely sunsets. Met many friendly people. The home was well equipped with everything we needed. Julie was always helpful and wanted us to call with any questions or concerns. There is a really nice pool also. If you are looking for a place to stay that is peaceful and quiet, this is the place to be.

Escape from NY

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had wonderfully relaxing holiday vacation here. We certainly would recommend it without hesitation. The Condo was one of the most well equipped that we have ever stayed in, and perfectly located across from the beach. It is a perfect mix of beach and home. The upstairs loft is perfect for teens and tweens to have their own space. Julie was extremely pleasant to work with. Love the ferry. We wish we were there now!
