Recent Little Gasparilla Island reviews

  • Beautiful Setting - Friendly responsive owners!

    "We stayed at this beach house in early March and had a wonderful time. We loved the seclusion, the sunrises on the bay and the sunsets on the beach. We watched a man catch a 200 pound shark on the beach. We rented a boat and cruised the intercoastal waterway - saw so many beautiful birds and lots of dolphins! Beautiful place, the owners were amazing. We had an issue with the hot water and the problem was immediately attended to by their caretaker who lives on the island. We heartily recommend this place to anyone headed to Little Gasparilla. We'll be coming to LGI for years to come. Thanks for sharing your place with us!"

  • You'll Want to Stay Forever

    "Very clean! Well kept and maintained property. Secluded from other homes on the island - very private. Lower level has beach equipment storage, washer/dryer, outdoor shower (for removing beach sand), and a mother-in-law apartment with it's own air conditioner and restroom/shower (perfect for Grandma). Upstairs has wrap around balcony with gas grill, screened-in porch with wicker seating for four, large kitchen and living room with plenty of room for kids to sprawl and plenty of kitchen wares (yay blender) and reverse osmosis drinking system, two bedrooms with K / Q, full bath. Laundry basket and hamper provided. Lots of towels and even a beach bag were in the linen closet! We had an issue with the tub faucet (island water blocked it up) but the owner John replaced it ... it was very handy to have him just at the end of the road. We also rented his golf cart which was a must for getting items from the boat to the house - we arrived after a major storm and dragging luggage over the cart paths would have been a mess. Only suggestions: more hand towels, wash cloths, This rental has no dish washer, but we relied on paper plates and only had to wash cookware. Helpful info: We used Pirate water taxi to get to the island ($10/person/way) - which you want to be on time for (Capt Emmett will let you know that for sure!). We bought groceries and liquor at the Publix in Placida. Groceries were cheaper there than in our home state of Colorado... Liquor comparable. Capt Emmett dropped us off at dock 75 which is the shortest distance to the house, but if John leaves the cart at his dock for you, you'll want to get dropped off at 78/79. The beach is a short walk/golf cart ride away. The sand bard extends quite a ways off shore and I saw teenagers 100 ft out that were only waist deep. Beach had people on it but not overcrowded. Folks brought body boards, paddle boards and kayaks. We saw dolphins off the southern tip of the Island but took a boat ride to see them and manatees (John knows where to find them if you rent a boat). The water was not very clear due to the major storm (tornado and massive rain) prior to our arrival. The water is still pretty cool but the air temp was in the low 80s and perfect throughout our stay. We waded and our young kids played in the waves. To be honest, we didn't want to leave and could have stayed forever. We'd definitely come back and stay with John again. Thanks, John for treating us so well and for all your help!"

  • Lovely week at a lovely home

    "This was our 2nd time staying on LGI, but first time upgrading to a beachfront location. We were thrilled with the prospect of staying in such a quintessential beach home. We weren't disappointed. Buddy and Laurie's home is a treasure trove of art, antiques, and pure beach charm. I truly felt like I missed the house when I was at the beach- it was that comfortable and homey! But once you're at the beach, you do realize why you're there. It's just a slice of heaven- plain and simple. LGI is a hidden gem....private, clean and scenic. We're excited to get back at some point. Although you have to prepare for the hassle of the water taxi and the hauling of ALL your bags and groceries off the boat and down the dock where, hopefully, in 90 degree heat someone will be there waiting to help you. Thankfully-- It's not for everyone. We'll keep coming back bc the beach and island is just SO worth it. We'll put up with the hassles - if it gets us back to LGI."

  • quiet and relaxing

    "Just back from our 1st stay on LGI. The Veron's have a clean and inviting home with plenty of space for you and your family to spread out and kick back. Really loves the outdoor shower and the large screened porch . The beds are very firm and toppers would help for a more restful nights sleep. Alice and Rod, the property caretakers, went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Overall my family and I had a great vacation and really didn't want it to end. Thanks Bonnie and Edward for sharing your beautiful home."
