Little Gasparilla Island house description

Little Gasparilla Island is a wonderful hidden paradise off the beaten path accessible only by private boat or water taxi. There are no bridges or formal paved roads on the island, just charming romantic sand paths where the local residents travel by foot or by golf cart. Little Gasparilla Island is one of the barrier islands along Florida's southeast coast located just north of Boca Grande and about 20 miles north of Sanibel Island off Ft. Myers. It is less than 40 miles south of Sarasota. There are over 7 miles of pristine beach accessible along the Gulf of Mexico available for your pleasure, starting just a few hundred feet from the house. This provides wonderful romantic getaway walks for many couples and endless shelling opportunities for others.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: I was born, raised and educated in Florida but I've traveled the world extensively. My dream home is on Little Gasparilla Island and I want to share this dream with others.

              Why the Owner Chose Little Gasparilla Island:
              It's easily one of the most charming places I've ever been and I want to share this with others by renting it to like minded people. I have traveled the world extensively but I find Little Gasparilla Island to be one of the best places I've ever been to. I continue to cherish it as I would an old friend. My renters thus far seem to agree.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The location is incredible and for real estate that is what it is usually all about. The property is on the Bay for safety but only a few yards from the beautiful Gulf. Fantastic fishing abounds here as does the beautiful white Gulf sands. Boca Grande, Sarasota, Ft. Myers
