Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (6 person max occupancy)

This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, island getaway is directly on the beach, and also includes your own private boat dock! This is one of the most unique properties on the island! This beach house was remodeled recently. Ocean views are abundant from every room and also from the large wrap around deck. You can relax and enjoy the view of the sunset while it sets over the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Little Gasparilla Island is completely separate from the mainland with no roads or cars. There are sandy trails to explore via golf cart and pristine beaches to soak in the sun. Golf cart rental and boat rental are readily available, and boating/fishing excursions can be arranged with advance notice and weather permitting. Getting to and from the island is a breeze. Just make a phone call to arrange for a boat taxi that runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; parking is available at the taxi pick-up location. The telephone number and directions to the water taxi will be included in your packet of information. The house is just a short, 5 minute boat ride from the mainland over to the island.

Don't miss out on this prime opportunity to relax and unwind on one of Florida's last, unspoiled island retreats; this is truly equal, if not better, than being in the heart of the Caribbean!

Loved this place

  • 5 of 5

We came down for a fishing trip and ended up mostly just hanging around the fantastic house and property. The beach is right out the back door and separate living space and bedrooms were ideal. The owner is also very responsive and quick to help out with anything you need. I definitely recommend this place.

Such an amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time! We definitely hope to return in the future! We kayaked up and down the beach, found so many sand dollars and amazing shells and we saw some of the best sunsets and starry nights we have ever experienced! I can't wait to go back! My wife wants to move to the island now (uh oh). The only thing i would change is renting a golf cart for the whole week. Kelly was great and very helpful! Couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this idyllic island. The cottage has a wonderful Caribbean feel, with separate sleeping and living quarters connected by a new, expansive, wrap around deck. Everything was well-maintained and clean, making this house on Little Gasparilla Island have the perfect balance of old and new. You are directly on the Gulf beach, and a short walk to the house's dock on the bay side. We found that renting a boat for 3 days was well worth it when you take in consideration the water taxi rates. All in all, this was a great vacation.

Ideal getaway

  • 5 of 5

Needed some time to relax "off the grid " and enjoy the beach. This turned out to be the perfect choice. Newly renovated with an expansive deck and great layout, it is smartly decorated with better quality furnishings. Completely separate "pods" for bedrooms and living areas allowed for late sleepers (my kids) and early risers(wife and I) to avoid cramping each others style. Spectacular beach views and private access.

Secluded anniversary

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I boated down to LGI for our anniversary weekend. We have rented there before, but this beach house far surpassed our previous experiences. The property is simple, in keeping with LGI beach style, but very clean. The master bedroom suite appeared freshly decorated and was very comfortable. It was so nice to step out on to the wrap around deck and enjoy the amazing beach views, which are also visible from throughout most of the inside of the property. While there is a neighbor close by, we neither saw or heard them during our stay. We kept our boat on the property's dock, a short walk behind the house. Everything was well kept and we had no issues throughout the stay. The owner was prompt and curtious in responding to our booking enquiries, and we very much hope to return to this beach rental again in the future.

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in April 2013 and it was absolute heaven! We live in south Florida so finding a special getaway that impresses us proves to be a challenge. Well, we found it! Nothing but homes on the island and a few golf carts (that we never saw or heard) so it is super peaceful. Although there are neighbors close by, we never saw them and it felt like we had the island to ourselves. The house boasts so many glass doors and windows that you can see the sunset from almost anywhere in the house.

Lisa is a pleasure to work with, she was quick to respond to all of my inquiries. Checking in and out was a breeze.

We have recommended this piece of heaven to many friends since last year. And we will stay here again this year for my husband's birthday!
