Recent Little Gasparilla Island reviews
Great time on LGI
"Spent a wonderful month on Little Gasperella Island in Julie's condo at the Hideaway Bay Resort. The unit is perfectly located, with views of a pond and the ocean. In addition the unit is meticulously maintained. All appliance and the flat screen televisions were new, or nearly new and in perfect working order, as was the Golf cart. The tile floors downstairs and carpeting upstairs also looked new. The beds linens and shower curtains looked fresh and it looked like the bathroom sinks were new. Finally, Julie was very quick to answer questions, responding to our emails within a few hours. LGI is a special place and Julie's condo made our stay especially enjoyable."

"Even though I had talked with former renters of this property and they had described it in glowing terms, I was beyond thrilled when we arrived at Coconut Hideaway! Our party consisted of my husband and myself, my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren aged eleven and eight. Each of us immediately loved the house and the location. The decor of the house was enchanting. Very "old Florida" with amazing furniture, lighting, decorative items galore. I never tired of looking at our surroundings. We were there for a week, preparing three meals a day, and there was not a kitchen gadget or tool that we lacked. In fact, several choices were offered as well as a great selection of dishware. It was the same for bedding, towels, games, beach chairs and toys. And the pantry! What a lifesaver! No matter how you plan there is always that forgotten item or two. We never missed a beat with our meal plans as the pantry was so well stocked.
The proximity to the beach was perfect without having to peek around other buildings. We could lounge on the spacious porch and watch dolphins swim by and many, many shore birds. The kids loved the water and collecting shells every day. In fact our grandson's birthday was during our stay and even though he was offered opportunities to go to the mainland to celebrate, he chose to stay on the island....."more fun." It goes without saying how gorgeous the sunsets were right there before our eyes.
I know how difficult it is to rent a beach house sight-unseen, but I sincerely feel no one would be disappointed in their choice of Coconut Hideaway. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Bud and Laurie, but everyone we spoke to, who knew them, had only the kindest of words.
My son-in-law is an avid fisherman and was able to supply us with several meals fresh from the ocean. What a treat that was. My husband and the kids all fished as well.
I was a bit anxious about the water taxi, but that proved to be unfounded. They were prompt and very helpful in transporting us back and forth. Actually quite a little adventure in itself.
One feature that was very important to us was the element of safety and comfort in our surroundings. We never locked the door. Every person we encountered was friendly and welcoming. Our week flew by and we all left hoping to one day return for another visit to an exceptional spot on an exceptional barrier island."

"My husband and I recently stayed at this unit which was neat, tidy and fully equipped with all the necessary kitchen supplies and linens. The view is lovely of the lake. It is conveniently located near the picnic area, community pool and ferry. The golf cart made it easy to get around the island. The beach is private and we enjoyed our long walks collecting shells. The owner's prompt response to our requests was greatly appreciated. This is a great getaway. Enjoy."
