Little Gasparilla Island cottage description

This 3 bedroom 2 bathroom gem has recently been remodeled with a fresh coat of paint and tile throughout. With 1520 living sq feet and a total of 3276 sq feet, this spacious vacation home offers enough space to relax indoors or lounge on the wrap around porch. Between the house and beach is a vacant lot for an unspoiled view of the Gulf of Mexico. A brief walk and you are sinking your toes in the white sand with just a few more steps to wading in the crystal clear water.
This serene spot offers approximately 7 miles of pristine natural shoreline, the perfect spot for rest and relaxation.

There is a quaint chapel located in the center part of the island, in a section called the Preserve, on the main road. Services are held every Sunday at 9:30 during the summer months and at 10:30 during the winter. These are non-denominational services offered for a time of worship and fellowship for all who visit Little Gasparilla Island.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: My wife and I (both 5th generation Floridians) have been coming here since 1975. We just love the area and the unique nature of Little Gasparilla Island. Our daughter grew up here on family vacations and now our twin grandaughters are discovering all the wonders of LGI.

              Why the Owner Chose Little Gasparilla Island:
              This is a wonderful location for beachcombing and catching up on your vacation novel. A brief walk and you are on the pristine white sandy beaches of Little Gasparilla Island. Spacious screened-in porch surrounding three sides of the home. Open floor plan allowing company to enjoy each other from most rooms and still having the privacy of bedrooms.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              An ocean view while doing the mundane of washing dishes seems like much less of a chore. The openess of this home with natural lighting from two sky-lights is peaceful and relaxing the moment you step inside.
