Little Gasparilla Island condo description
For most of us, the Ultimate Getaway conjures up dreams of sun drenched days on a BEAUTIFUL TROPICAL ISLAND, TURQUOISE WATER as far as the eye can see, waves gently washing ashore on miles of UNSPOILED, WHITE SANDY BEACH with palm trees swaying in the tropical breeze. Sounds WONDERFUL, now if only you could eliminate the CROWDS, CARS AND CHAOS that are part and parcel of most tropical destinations these days!!
Well, you can and you don't have to travel half way around the world to get there!
Paradise can be found on LITTLE GASPARILLA ISLAND, located just off the southwest coast of Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico between Sarasota and Ft. Myers, next door to the prestigious Boca Grande. My island offers residents and visitors alike, a way of life that is virtually unheard of in today's fast paced society.
Visualize swimming in the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico, with Dolphins and Manatees playing nearby. YES it is all here. These waters are also home to numerous species of game fish, in fact, the area has become world renowned for Tarpon Fishing, probably the most prized and challenging catch of all. The shelling here is unquestionably second to none and each day brings a new assortment of treasures from the sea. And when each day is done you will be able to witness the most spectacular sunsets anywhere, each with its own unique display, amidst the most serene setting imaginable.
Hideaway Bay Beach Club is a lovely, 18 acre complex with a large heated pool, sun decks, 2 fountain lakes, outdoor barbecue area and much, much more. My unit is a 2 story condominium, built in the 'Old Florida' style. On the first level, you will find a screened porch, living/dining room, kitchen and Master Bedroom with a Queen Bed and a full bath. A spiral staircase in the living room, takes you to a guest bedroom with two full size beds and full bath that span the entire second floor. My 'Island Getaway' was recently repainted and all new tile floors put in downstairs. Dining and Living room furniture upgraded.
The kitchen is FULLY EQUIPPED, including new glass top range, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, dishwasher and microwave. Two color TV's with DirecTV service, one in the living room, the other in the Master Bedroom. A full washer and dryer are also provided for your convenience, and a landline telephone in case of emergencies. WiFi service available at the clubhouse above the beautiful outdoor pool. All you need are your personal belongings, food and a desire to get away and live the non-stress life we islanders cherish.

This was our second year of enjoying this property & we returned because we enjoyed it so much in 2011.The condo was clean & well maintained and the owner available in case of concerns ( of which there were none ). Location is great for relaxation and also in good proximity to other areas of Florida which we enjoy visiting ( eg. Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Naples, Port Charlotte, Tampa ).Services such as heated pool, wi-fi, ferry transport to mainland are all included and of good quality & the beach scene is to die for.Both Cynthia & I have no hesitation in recommending this property to vacationers.

Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: I have owned my condo since December, 1992. I was teaching at the time in California and I spent every vacation on the island. Eventually I retired and in 2008 my home was built and I moved in as a full time 'Snowbird' Sure, there are other beautiful places in this wonderful world of ours but I love Little Gasparilla Island so much I hardly ever venture out to other places. I know what I have here and there are no surprises.
Why the Owner Chose Little Gasparilla Island:
It is the most awesome place to live besides my other home in Lake Tahoe, Calif. BUT you must love peace and quiet. If you are looking for night life and noise, do NOT book your reservation here.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Short walk to the beach or to the ferry landing. My unit is just about in the middle of the widest part of the island. Roads are shell and sand and the rest of the island is eclectic in every way. A walk north and south will give you a fell for the uniqueness of this island paradise and the diversity therein.
