Embark on a unique holiday experience at Gasparilla Island Wake up to the sound of the waves and sip your morning coffee on the wooden verandah offering uninterrupted views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Come and discover one of Florida’s most unique holiday destinations.
That is a fantastic place! We stayd there with 8 people and 2 babies in 4 comfortable bed rooms with large beds and 2 well equipped bathrooms. The open kitchen has a lot of space and is well equipped. The living has a hughe front door to the terraces (2 - one has a roof, the other one is open) with a table were 20 people can be seated! you can see the sea from almost every room. The house is located as you can also see on the pictures - directly at the beach. during the time we have been there, the beach was almost all empty and we had the feeling to have a private beach for us. There is no neighbouring house in one side, so you get the feeling of being all alone on the island!
We had an electronic golf cart that we rented, but hardly used it as the island is small and we walked on the sandy 'streets'... Strong recommendation - we will return next year!

Que casa más hermosa! Para nuestro grupo de 6 personas fue un paraíso perfecto y privado. La casa tiene de todo, el aire funciona bien tambien el wifi. La playa parece privada (ni los vecinos molestan), el mar perfecto para nadar. No hay coches solo buggies - por eso vives en un silencio total. Es un ambiente sin estrés.Tienes que planificar tu compras un poco porque en la isla no se puede comprar nada. Tienes que regresar al otro lado en watertaxi. Lo único triste fue el día de regreso.
No importa, regresamos seguro! Matito & Olguita
