Little Gasparilla Island house description

'Like New' beautifully decorated 'stilt' home on private, bridgeless island just steps from seven miles of secluded, unspoiled, white sand beaches. Enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf and sunsets from two lanais while dining or just relaxing.

Sounds of the surf are endless, yet serene, as you nap or are in for a good night's sleep. It is the paradise you have been looking for. The fun and sun - whether you are enjoying the beautiful beaches or some of the best snook and tarpon fishing in Florida. Great shelling - 'Sanibel' without the crowds.

Little Gasparilla has no roads, only winding sand paths to be explored by foot or golf cart. It is accessible only by boat and just five minutes from the mainland.

So, come enjoy this beautiful paradise getaway!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: I find nothing more relaxing than being near the water, and my home and vacation cottages are all just steps away. Just retired after 31 years in education, I am looking forward to more time in 'Paradise'!

                      Why the Owner Chose Little Gasparilla Island:
                      About ten years ago we heard of a 'Little Island' that was accessible only by boat. After a little research we found it, made a trip down from NJ and purchased our cottage the next day. We have loved every minute we spend on the Island and enjoy sharing our vacation paradise with others. Many repeat guests are creating family traditions at 'Miss Patti's' cottage.
