About the property

- Minimum Stay3 nights
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!

Perfect Place for Relaxation and Beautiful Beach, but having a boat is preferable
Myself and two other co-workers spent a 3-day weekend at this property. We were all in need of some R&R. This place was PERFECT for that. The beach and house was absolutely lovely! BUT, please know that there are absolutely no restaurants on the island and if you don't have a boat, you may not be happy. Reserving the water taxi was somewhat stressful as there is only one company that provides this service. I had a cousin who lives in the Tampa area that I only see once in every 3 years. He made the drive to Placida and was going to catch the water taxi to come for a short visit---the water taxi told him he would have to wait at least 3 hours since he did not reserve at least 7 days in advance! It was heart-breaking! (he could not wait that long). The water taxi was NOT busy, they simply refused to provide the service without advance reservations. The water taxi only takes 5 minutes and costs $20.00 one way, but if you have not reserved ahead of time, they are not very accommodating. We met locals that agreed with us---if you do not own your own boat and have it with you on the island, you may be stuck and be very unhappy---there is absolutely nothing that you can purchase on the island) We brought groceries with us and of course cooked our own meals. The house has PLENTY of cooking utensils. However, if you want to grill out, you have to bring your own charcoal (we felt this would get so heavy along with our clothes and food/beverages, so we chose not to). Also, plan on spending a little extra to rent a golf cart. I believe it was $50/day and well worth it! (however, when we first called to reserve the cart, they were out, so it was just lucky they had a cancellation and we were able to rent one! Again, reserve ahead of time!) It was great fun driving along the sand pathways thru the island---it is a tropical paradise and very quiet. The beach was lovely and we all came home with incredible sea shells. If you are looking for a very quiet vacation, this place is PERFECT!!!!
Great location. Away from the other beach homes and amazing shells out front. House is clean and well stocked in the kitchen. Love the two pods teens stayed up late in one while we slept then we got up early and they slept - perfect. Amazing views and just peaceful
The "red tide" was so bad we could not walk the beach or sit outside...we left early.
Ideal location! We felt like we had the island to ourselves. Beautiful house, we had everything we needed. We will definitely be coming back.
Wonderful- just a few steps from beach !
The house was very clean, building with bedrooms and 2 full baths was very comfortable and had everything we needed (lots of towels, extra sheets, pillows and all cushions for outdoor furniture) outdoor shower was a wonderful surprise! The main building (kitchen, dining and living area) has sliders to open and enjoy crashing waves sounds. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare all meals. Will definitely return!! Thanks again. The McKinnons
