Little Gasparilla Island cottage description

This two-story bay front property offers a retreat from the daily grind.
Each of the two bedrooms upstairs has its own private balcony for moments of peaceful bliss with your morning coffee, tanning during the day or indulging in your evening cocktail.
Down the spiral staircase on the main floor the master bedroom boasts Asian themed decor and a private balcony as well.
The main living area is an open and inviting space including full size kitchen, dining room and sitting area. French doors open onto the spacious screened in front porch.
Walking out on the dock you can see the ocean floor come to life and glimpse into the wonders beneath the water. Grab your rod-and-reel and try your hand at catching dinner. Snook, Reds, Sheep Head and many other species of fish gather at the end of the dock.
Don't forget to enjoy the sunken Tiki Bar! Newly built and ready to enhance the memories of your vacation.

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.

              Car: Not Necessary

              Little Gasparilla Island (LGI) is a bridgeless & roadless barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, between Tampa and Naples. You leave your car at one of the marinas and take a 10-15 minute boat ride to the private dock and cottage. The island is approximately 7 miles long and approximately 1/4-1/2 mile wide. LGI is the perfect place to wind down and relax. You can take leisurely strolls on the beach, or explore the interior of the island along the many sandy paths. An option is to rent a golf cart, grab a cooler and just take your Sunday drive anytime you want. What about that book you have been wanting to read or going fishing either at the end of the dock or on a boat (either yours or a rental). Guides are also available in the area.

              About: 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.
