Little Gasparilla Island house description
Cracker Landing is aptly named for the Florida owner's affinity for the Florida Crackers who settled this land.The owner is descended from many early settlers to southwest Florida. The name reflects a respect for the beauty of the coastal island and for the lovely, interesting life the waters provide. The home is situated in the middle of the island, requiring about a two minute walk to the
beach....approximately 500 feet to the boardwalk. Gentle breezes blow most of the time. There are community boat ramps for those who wish to bring their own boat. There is also a water taxi available for hire at minimal rates. The price quoted will provide you with a trip to the island, a trip off the island when you leave and one during the week should you so choose to use it. If you do not need that service contact the owner for a price break. You will need to pay for parking on the mainland at Eldred's marina, which is currently $6.00 per day.The house is fully air conditioned, has two flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, and all linens, dishes, and appliances are furnished It is a two-story house with two open decks to sit on. You can relax with your
coffee on either deck as you enjoy the tropical flowers, coconut trees , and watch the ospreys and seagulls as they fly the azure skies.
The inside of the house is mostly paneled with cedar . The upstairs loft-room is also pecky cedar with numerous windows to provide an open feeling. The house has an outdoor shower for showering off the sand from the beach.

Cracker Landing offered my family and me a terrific chance to sit down and do things together that we forget to do in the hubbub and rush of our lives on the mainland. The beach is gorgeous, the bay lovely and the house provides a really comfortable setting with all the modern conveniences yet a sense of privacy and a time for reflection. Each day, my family and I had an opportunity to discover something new and exciting at the beach. My husband and son enjoyed fishing off the dock and attempting to catch shrimp when the current was flowing. My daughter and I spent most of the time looking for shells at the beach and building sandcastles near the water. The house is two story with two twin beds in the loft and a double bed. The main floor bedroom is spacious and has a king-sized bed. There are two bathrooms and a large tiled shower. The entire house is furnished nicely and is designed for leisurely activities. We loved staying there and hope to return again next year.

About the owner: I am a third generation Floridian who has a great respect for the 'Old Florida' style of living. That connotation implies a closeness with the land, with honor, and with a more simplistic approach to life. Little Gasparilla provides a peaceful sojourn for me as I watch the Ospreys fly about and as I often watch the incredibly lovely, yet changing colors of the daily sunsets.
Why the Owner Chose Little Gasparilla Island:
My husband and I loved the natural beauty Little Gasparilla Island provides. We built our house in 1984 . It has an abundance of natural cedar wood on the walls; has provided many happy, family times over the years. The appliances are modern, the house well-maintained and is designed with numerous windows for those who like the open feeling.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
All comforts of a home setting while being also close to the bay and 7 miles of gorgeous gulf beach. Extra lot next to the house provides for privacy and room for children to play. If you are looking for absolutely gorgeous beach and outstanding fishing...then welcome home, traveler. You have arrived at the right spot.
