Little Gasparilla Island house description

Little Gasparilla Island is a bridgeless barrier island with seven miles of secluded sandy beach, located off the coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. Park at Eldred's Marina and jump on the 'water taxi' for a 10 minute ride to our dock. Walk 3 minutes down the lane and you'll find 'Calypso', hidden amongst the Florida Palms. It is perfectly positioned on a private lot, a 2 minute walk from the white sandy beach of the Florida Gulf.
Enjoy the seclusion of our home and a stillness not found on the mainland. Spend hours of quiet with a good book on our large screened porch, overlooking the lush palm gardens. Fully equipped, modern, well-lit kitchen with every gadget you'll ever need to pull off a great meal.

Wi-fi, (2 GB maximum per weekly rental)

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About: In 1999, we migrated to Atlanta from upstate New York, seeking warm weather and sunshine. In February of 2013, we decided to begin looking at real estate in West Florida, and Voila! What can I say, miracles happen fast.

                      Why Little Gasparilla Island:
                      In search of yet a 'warmer climate', we stumbled upon a barrier island we now fondly refer to as 'Little G'. Back home in Atlanta, we were tirelessly searching for a studio to quench our creative thirst. One spin on a golf cart around this sandy island, we were convinced we had found the best of all creative spaces, with lush natural beauty and solace from which to draw inspiration.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      It's hip, immaculate and modern with a killer porch, only 175 steps to the beach. I've counted them myself. Take your paints to the beach, photograph the sunrise, pull out your yoga mat or journal the rhythms of the Island tortoise.
