                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: Glen (Minnesota) & Sari (Navy Brat, California & Key West. Sari's parents were good friends with Bob & Frankie Pelfrey (the original golf cart shop owners). The house on the beach was going up for auction, so we made the trip to look at it with my parents.They decided not to bid on it, so we did! Much to our surprise they accepted our offer and we had 60 days to sell our home in St.Pete, move Glen's business and give my job notice. All said and done we moved in on October 31,1996.We lived in the house for 12 years, until we built a home on the mainland and we now are at the island when it is not rented.Glen still works on the island as a contractor.

                  Why the Owner Chose Little Gasparilla Island:
                  We had never been to LGI prior to this trip. We had heard many stories from my parents and the Pelfrey's.Undeveloped, old florida,fishing,swimming, boating,shelling,food never tastes as good as it does on the island, and more. We met Alice Traverse on the golf cart, drove to the house,fell in love with the view and the beach & privacy. What a high!!! We could only be so LUCKY & BLESSED TO LIVE HERE. And Lucky & BLESSED we were and still are.WE LOVE SHARING OUR HOME WITH ALL OF YOU AND HOPE IT BRINGS YOU THE SAME PEACE AND SERENITY WE FIND THERE.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  THERE IS NO BETTER DAWN WHEN THE SUN COMES UP FROM OUR DECK. NO BETTER DUSK THEN WHEN THE SUN SETS INTO THE GULF. MAYBE EVEN A GREEN FLASH. ELECTRIFYING THUNDERSTORMS. BEING ONE WITH THE SEA AND SAND.THE KIDS ARE CLOSE WHILE YOUR PREPARING MEALS, JUST AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS OR LOOK OUT THE WINDOW.YOU MIGHT EVEN SEE A SEA TURTLE NESTING,MANATEES SWIMMING BY ,DOLPHINS PLAYING AND THE SNOOKS TEASING YOU RIGHT OFF THE BALCONY.AND MEMORIES, OH SO MANY MEMORIES. MAKE THEM YOUR OWN AND FALL IN LOVE WITH PARADISE.
