                            This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever been on. We were a little cautious because we have 3 small kids and we're not sure if they would get bored of the island 24/7 but they were far from bored. The house was the perfect location being right on the beach. The kids could go in if they got tired and everybody else could enjoy the sand. The views from the deck were awesome. The water was a little chilly but we had fun. Great stay. Great house. Thanks Glen and Siri

                            My best friends and I were lucky to spend a week at this wonderful house. Glen and Sari were very accommodating to our needs. The view is absolutely unbelievable. "Is this real?" was the start to many conversations. We saw manatee, lots of dolphins, snooks, and birds galore. Margaritas on the beach at sunset highly recommended. The ocean was amazing. I can not say enough about our experience. We are already planning a trip back.

                            Glen and Sari were kind enough to let us stay in their island home for two WONDERFUL days. Our friends flew in from Oklahoma and we wanted to show them the island. We have been coming to Little Gasparilla for over 30 years and wanted to let them see why we keep coming back. They were only here for very few days so we couldn't stay long. Maybe next time. It was a spectacular 2 days. The most BEAUTIFUL sunsets and especially the night skies. The weather was gorgeous. We had a blast!!! Thank you again Glen and Sari.

                            First i would like to thank Glen and Sari for letting us stay in there home. This is the best house i have stayed at on the island and we WILL be returning agian A.S.A.P!!! The decks are perfect for sunsets and unwinding listening to the shell music. The only issue I had on my stay was the finiky snook that teased me in front of the house every morning with my coffee!! LOL.

                            We can't say enough about this place so we just keep coming back. The very first day about 7 dolphin and a manatee went by as we sat on the deck. Glen added the outside shower which you'll you'll find to awesome after a day on the beach. A couple of nights storms rolled in at sunset and it created spectacular photos. This House is not beach front, it's BEACH! Any further in the water and this house would be a boat! By far this is the very best location on the island. The solitude, of this location is makes it almost unbelievable that you can be on a beach and some days only see 3 or 4 other people all day I think our dogs are actually remembering the place! Glen and Sari Thank You both once again for sharing the magic of La La Land. We'll be back real soon! Rich, Teri, "Scooch & Noodles" Columbus, Ohio Thanks Again

                            Our stay was pure bliss. We must say a part of our heart was left on LGI. We enjoyed fishing, reading, riding in the golf cart, and walks in Don Pedro Park. We met many nice people during our stay both residents and visitors. We cannot wait to return to the island and hopefully this home will be free as it is by far the best home on the island with the kindest owners.

The house was beautiful & clean and Sari even put up a little Christmas tree for us.. :) This is the best place I have ever been on vacation... We saw dolphins playing everyday. The sunsets are amazing and the moonsets are out of this world. I have never seen such beautiful moonsets before. The location of the beach house is perfect, it's like having your own beach.. Glen was so nice & kind to us which made our stay even better... If you're looking for a little piece of heaven on earth this is it.. Glen & Sari you guys are so sweet & amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us.. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.. Islandly yours

                            We went for a week our family of 5 and our dog. We had such a relaxing vacation. The house was is very clean and is amazing. We felt like we had a beach to ourselves most of the time. We saw dophins, stingrays, and tons of big and little fish right from the deck. The house had everything you need to enjoy your stay. The decking on the house is great upstairs and downstairs plenty of seating. My dog loved being able to come right out of the house and sit herself down on the beach, so did I. The house is wonderful and you will not be disappointed. The house is one of the best locations on the beach.

                          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.
