Little Gasparilla Island house description

Take the water taxi or bring your boat to this quiet retreat on a private island only accessible by boat. There are sandy paths and golf cart trails, but there are no cars, stores, or restaurants! Our home is located half way between the Gulf and the Bay on Seagrape Lane (Dock 51); you are only a short distance to the sunrise or sunset.

Enjoy 7 miles of beautiful, uncrowded white sandy beaches. Don Pedro State Park is located about 2 miles north of our beach access. There is a library on the island and a small selection of children and fiction/nonfiction books at the house. Board games and cards are supplied along with a DVD collection suitable for all ages. Or forget the electronics - relax, collect shells, build sandcastles, relax, hang out in the hammock, explore, eat, drink, laugh, read, relax, nap, swim, run, or just RELAX. It's the best place to do nothing!

Fish from the dock or the beach, and if you have a boat, you are surrounded by some of Florida's greatest fishing spots for tarpon, snook, redfish, shark, grouper and snapper just to name a few. If you fish from your boat, please purchase a Florida fishing license (good for 1 year). www.http://myfwc.com/license/

Our home has two bedrooms upstairs. One has a queen-sized bed and half bath; while the other contains two twin beds. The downstairs has a private entrance to a spacious bedroom with two twin beds. Enjoy dinner on the screened in porch or relax in the hammock.

                      Year Purchased: 1991

                      About the owner: Little Gasparilla Island has been part of our lives since we were kids. In 1990 during a vacation stay of beautiful days, wonderful fishing, quiet times with the kids (no TVs or electronic gadget demands!)we decided it was time to spend all our vacations here. We found the perfect lot on Seagrape Lane and built this retreat for our family. From the first time we stayed there in April 1991, it has been a respite from the craziness of our everyday lives. Laura's sister, Tish and her husband Phil, are now owners with Steve and Laura. We hope that sharing our little piece of paradise with you will bring a smile to your face as you remember your stay.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Osprey, cardinals, gopher turtles and the 'slow' pace of the island is all you need. As one friend says, 'The worst day on the Island is better than the best day on the Mainland!'
