Little Gasparilla Island cottage description

Take a water taxi or bring your boat to this excellent beachfront cottage on a private bridge-less island only accessible by boat.There are no roads -- only winding sand paths and lanes that you can explore by foot or cart. Only 25 steps out the front door you have 7 miles of secluded unspoiled beach.

Enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and incredible sunsets from the front and rear decks and the front rooms of this tastefully furnished home. Fall asleep each night to the sound of the surf. The best part about this home is that it's an incredibly romantic place or the perfect family getaway.

Bring all your goodies with you because there are no services on the island, but if you need some entertainment or food you are only a ten minute ride by water taxi back to the marina on the mainland.

Water taxis run from 9am-6pm. If you bring a boat, we have a very good deep water dock that is shared by our lane and is just a 3-4 minute walk to the cottage. We will have a complimentary concierge service so that you can be picked up at the dock and brought to the cottage and have help bringing your belongings inside. (Details available)

Get a world class tan, collect shells and sharks teeth on one of the best shelling beaches around (especially after a storm) help your kids make the best sand castle ever, sit on the porch swing and hold your lover's hand, explore, eat, drink, laugh, read, nap, swim, run, or have a treasure hunt! There is a lot to do on this island that has nothing to do!

Finally for the fishermen out there, we are the epicenter of the state's best inshore and offshore fishing, tarpon, snook, redfish, shark, grouper and snapper just to name a few. Bring your fishing poles!

                            My wife and I just returned from a week at this cottage and really had no idea what to expect. We just wanted to get away from the horrible Philadelphia winter. The entire experience was magical for us because it was so different and the weather was perfect for mid February. You take a water taxi (about 10 minutes) to the island from a marina that is out of Indiana Jones... the house is a 5 minute walk and a golf cart is made available for returning to the dock to pick up your luggage. Nicely decorated, three TVs, no internet and appointed with everything you need. There is actually a cottage between this cottage and the water (which is about 30 yards away). But this was good because it blocked the afternoon sun and we could sit on the front or backporch and feel the gentle gulf breezes without being blinded.We hated going off the island and quickly got in to a slowed down island rhythm. No cars or stores or noise - beautiful sunsets and night time skies and the house was in excellent condition. We're going back!

                            Owner response: Thank you Drew, an awsome island for wonderful guests!

                            Little Gasparilla Island ist einer der schönsten Plätze auf dieser Welt und das Haus der perfekte Ort zum Verweilen. Michael war stets sehr bemüht und zuvorkommend und zugleich nicht aufdringlich. Die Ausstattung des Hauses lässt keine Wünsche offen, das Haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und erinnert einen jeden Tag daran, das Leben zu genießen! Wir haben keinen Sonnenaufgang und keinen Sonnenuntergang verpasst! Auf der Insel haben wir nur freundliche Menschen getroffen, es ist als würde dieser Ort das Beste aus jedem herausholen. Michael, wir danken Dir für diese wunderschöne Woche und würden uns sehr freuen wiederkommen zu dürfen!

                            I am very late in reviewing this property but as we are looking into whether we will be able to rent again this year I decided I should after noticing there was only one other review. I have used other VRBOs and am grateful for reviews so I need to do my part. We stayed here in March of 11 and found the island to be absolutely enchanting, relaxing, and stress-free. The location of the house is amazing, with great porches and great views. Sunsets while grilling dinner on the back porch were not to be missed. The house had tons of towels, games, cleaning products, grocery items you don't think of bringing (like sugar for your coffee) so even if you do forget something on the mainland you should be ok. The house is older but very charming, warm and beachy. Having the golf cart is nice because it lets you explore more of the island. We went for a drive every morning and enjoyed running into the rare person in another golf cart and commenting on "traffic." What a change of pace. We probably only saw a dozen people on the island the whole week. We also brought our kayaks, which we put to much use, had a neighbor offer us fresh caught fish, shelled, played games, used the beach chairs, and made frozen drinks in the blender. We didn't wear shoes all week. I can't think of a more unique "old florida" experience. It was good to learn we didn't have to bring our own water or haul our trash out like some other renters had to in other homes. A king bed would be nice, only because I'm so used to mine. We used Captain Willy to bring us to the island and he even dropped off a grocery item at our request one afternoon when we couldn't bare to waste vacation time on the mainland. Only bad part was trying to clean up all the sand we had managed to track inside before we left, even though we always used the surprisingly (in a good way) warm outdoor shower and foot wash each time we came in.

                            By far the best vacations we have ever had. This year will be our 5th and hopefully we'll have many more. The house is wonderful as are the owners! Seeing the crawls in the morning and shelling are always incredible. It's a perfect getaway.
