Little Gasparilla Island house description
We are located in the center of Little Gasparilla Island approximately 100 yards from the bay and 300 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. (See location map) From our home you can fish, crab, or shrimp off one of two private docks, search the miles of white sand beach for exotic sea shells, surf fish the beautiful waters of the gulf, or just relax and enjoy the gorgeous beach that Little Gasparilla Island is famous for.
Access to the island is by your own boat or there is a private water taxi available at a reasonable rate. This lack of a bridge makes LGI unique and adds to it's relaxed atmosphere. There are no paved streets only sand roads with the main mode of transportation golf carts and foot power.
We built this home for our family to use and it has worked perfectly for us and will for you too. There are 4 bedrooms all with king size beds(several can be separated into 2 ex-long twins) with 2 full baths and 2 half baths. There are porches on front and back and 2 decks off the second floor bedrooms. The living area is very open so everyone can be together whether cooking dinner or watching TV.

The house has everything you need to have a great vacation. From a kitchen complete with all appliances, pots and pans, and a complete selection of spices to beach chairs for relaxing on the beautiful white sand beach. Our house has it all!!
Downstairs is another large deck for relaxing and a large outside shower with hot and cold water.
We have a golf cart that we rent separately for $50/day or $250/week. Just let us know if you want to rent the golf cart before you reserve the house and we will include it.

A Wonderful Vacation Home
A Wonderful Vacation Home
This house has everything you need for a great getaway if you want to lounge on the wrap around deck or hang out at the beach. The location situated nicely between the gulf and the bay. It is perfect for a family getaway. With the wonderful laundry facility, you can pack light. Highly recommend renting the golf cart to explore the island and carrying things to and from the house. The beach supplies--chairs, umbrellas, toys--were nice amenities to use on the awesome beach with tons of shells and shark teeth. It was a great vacation and making plans for our next visit.

I have been to LGI twice now and absolutely LOVE this house! The proximity of the house provides quick access to both the bay and the beach. The ammenities within the home give you the comfort of home. Then, you step out on one of the balconies and realize you are on an island paradise. And if you feel the need, and want to drift away in the quietness, use the hammock on the ground level outside while reading your favorite novel. There is nothing like getting wrapped up in a good book while not having a care in the "real world" to steal your thoughts away, and this is just the place to through your cares out the window and let nature take them where she wants. Also, while there isn't a necessity for the golf cart, I would recommend it because you will want to venture out and explore the island. You can also use it to get to the far end of the roadway to look for shark teeth and shells on a different part of the beach. Yes, I said shark teeth. It is a wonderful way to get your kids involved in nature and learn about the world under the ocean. All in all, it was an amazing trip and I cannot wait to go back!!!

We discovered Little Gasparilla Island 2 weeks ago, and had really a fantastic stay at this house, and highly recommend it! it's nested in the trees, large, very clean, clear, well decorated, really comfortable (perfect beds!). We went with our 5 kids and really the house was perfect for us, we felt very comfortable to live in! And we really appreciated that the owner brought very kindly before our arrival toys and books for our younger one (3 years old). We were able to enjoy both of the decks, as the weather was so nice... We fell in love with LGI, and we now want to go back for some days during spring break in 2 months, but unfortunately for us some other lucky people have already booked this house!... Thank you to the owners to share their house, and we hope to come again, as we really felt very well in this house!

Great relaxing family home!
Great relaxing family home!
Our second year for our family Thanksgiving tradition trip. Sea Shell Haven was the perfect place. The home is beautiful, roomy, clean and extremely well equipped inside and out. Location was amazing, old time Florida..... Relaxing, quiet, clean and the brightest stars you'll ever see at night. Dockage was amazing and easy. Walks to beach, great shelling, fishing, exploring, day trips to downtown Boca Grande and Cabbage Key by boat! Doesn't get much better than that. We'll be back for tarpon season! Thanks also to the owners who were always easy to contact.
