  • Dream come true!

    "We can't say enough great things about our stay at LaLa Land. We were married on the beach near the house, and spent the following week fishing, floating, collecting shells, sand dollars and sharks teeth, and enjoying fabulous sunsets on the deck every night. The dolphins gave us a great show almost every day! Best vacation ever- and we will be back! We can't imagine a better place to unwind!"

  • Perfect for family!

    "We just arrived home from our first but not last trip to LGI. Hideaway Bay is a great location on the island. It is right in the middle of the gulf and bay. Orlando made everything so easy. He even happen to be at the house working when the first part of my family arrived and was nice enough to explain the water heater he just worked on. Then he called a few times after to make sure we were ok. I was very impressed with the amount of bath towels provided. But would suggest to get some new sheets for the queen bed upstairs. The set that was on them were a bit itchy so we changed them. But noticed the 2nd set had some holes in them. My parents slept in the King bed downstairs and loved the mattress so much that they took pictures of the tag to find one to buy at home. The queen bed upstairs was not as comfy but I can understand it would be hard to get a new mattress upstairs because of the spiral staircase. My aunt slept on the couch and she said she was very comfortable. We loved the lanai and the deck below the house. The place is so close to the beach even though it doesn't look like it in pictures. I was concerned about the ferry service but it turned out to be a very fun part of our vacation. We went across to mainland 3 out of the 6 days. We cooked in the kitchen each night and found it to be easy to use. I would suggest to sharpen the knives because they are rather dull and do not cut very well. This property is a great place to stay and Orlando is a very wonderful person to rent from. He is honest and trusting. We hope to return next year."

  • Our own piece of paradise!

    "Our family arrived after being in the keys for 5 days and it was so nice, and quite, and relaxing after all the touristy stuff! Theists had buckets full of shells within minutes of hitting the beach! First off, the house is everything the pictures show - the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra pillows and blankets. The bathrooms had plenty of fluffy towels. The laundry room was so convienent for running a couple of loads. The beach is gorgeous! We wrote down the tide schedule for the week so we knew when we would have the best shelling. There was also a storm that came though the night before we arrived and there were lots of big shells for the taking. During the week, my kids found over 100 sharks teeth, a mermaids purse, a horseshoe crab shell and lots and lots of shells! We also fished off the beach and caught a lemon shark and a devil ray. While swimming, sting rays would chase their dinner right between your legs! We also saw many dolphins right off the beach. Pirates water taxi was our way of getting back and forth to the island. Yes, it does get expensive, but they are running a business that is seasonal. I recommend making your reservations at least a week ahead of time if you go during the busy season. They are the only water taxi running out of Elreds Marina. Make sure you have everything you need so you don't have to go back and forth! We rented a golf cart for a couple of days from the guys on the island (I can't remember the name of their business) and it was a great way to see the island. I thought their rates were reasonable and we had some problems with one of the carts and they came and traded it with another one with no problem. This vacation was just what we needed for our family. Our kids are 11, 8 and 5 and they were never bored. One night we even took flashlights to the beach and searched for crabs! The stars - so many! We did do a day trip to a airboat Eco tour so we made it a day off the island and ate out, got ice cream and did some shopping. If you are looking to get away from the touristy crowds and just spend some time with your loved ones, Little Gasparilla Island is the place to go! The owners have equipped the home with everything you could need. Bring your clothes and lots of food and you will have a wonderful time!"

  • Little slice of paradise!

    "My one and only complaint will be addressed first, because it's not something I hold the home owners responsible for (their maintenance crew should have either fixed the problem or alerted the owners). The main bedroom ac was not working. That's it... my only complaint :-) Now for my raves! The house is beyond quaint. Think of it as roughing it... but not too rough. Coming from a Loew's snob... if I can fall head over heels in love with this sweet little slice of paradise, anyone can! The furniture is mismatched and rustic, the kitchen and it's utensils are too and the bathroom is small. And every single bit of it only adds to the simple, quiet charm that the house itself has to offer. No where will you find a better view, or be lulled to sleep by the waves rocking you at night. And NO WHERE will you be blessed enough to hear only the waves no matter where you are sitting inside the house. With all of the stress and rush that I deal with in my day-to-day life (and often times during my vacations as well), being able to sit on a deck that offers an unobstructed, panoramic view of nothing but shoreline, sipping red wine and having the shells play their music for me as the waves washed over them... it was just the therapy this girl needed. Julie, you are an A+ doll and I thank you so much for every email. Your little Beach Shack is simply perfect in my book and I can not wait to come back!"
