Recent Little Gasparilla Island reviews

  • 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."

  • Fantastic Week

    "We had a great time at this property. Secluded and beautiful and peaceful - who could ask for more? No roads or stores or distractions....just a beautiful stretch of beach that can't be beat. The water was great, the scenery gorgeous, the house was SO comfortable. I think we sat in every chair on that amazing screened in, wraparound deck. Every little nook was perfect at a different time of day - again, a very comfortable house. We had everything we needed and the hosts, Rebecca and Andrew, were terrific - Rebecca even picked up a few needed items for us when she went to the mainland. How great and thoughtful! Also loved being able to use their kayaks! We would totally consider coming here again - great, great, great!"

  • 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!"

  • A place to Escape to from an hectic world, Peacock Lane, Gasparilla Island

    "My friend and I decided to get away after a busy season at work. What would be better than a getaway on an island? We chose Little Gasparilla Island .Easy to get to by water taxi. Just make sure to bring provisions and plenty of sun screen lotion..The cottage is cute with plenty of outside space for dining and tanning , inside comfortable with plenty of space and also a place to watch a favorite show on tv. . The view of the long sandy beach is spectacular ! Sunning , swimming in beautiful turquoise water, long walks , shelling and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. The cottage is clean and cozy. Great place to relax and get away from it all. We would highly recommend it."
