Recent Little Gasparilla Island reviews

  • Coconut Hideaway, exceptional beach front home with more exceptional owners.

    "We spent two weeks at Coconut Hideaway. The first week it was just my husband and I. We walked on the beach, found hundreds of shark teeth, and just decompressed from our hectic work life. I must have read 5 or 6 books in the two weeks. We left the island only to pick our three kids up at the airport (and grocery shop on the way back) for the second week/Christmas week. We kayaked; fished from the kayaks, stand up paddle boarded on both the bay side and the gulf side. We explored around the small mangrove ‘islands’, found mangrove tunnels, and saw lots of ‘jumping fish’ (I think called ‘mullet’ fish. Everyone seems to comment that this house is ‘special’ and they are so right. It IS special in so many ways. Our jobs require many weeks of travel per year, and the impersonal nature of hotel rooms and rental condos gets very old, so no way did I want our vacation to feel like another work trip. It is so wonderful to walk into a home. A home that has been decorated with an eye for comfort and interesting places. A home stocked with all the little things you’d not think you’d miss over two weeks away from your own home. A home stocked with spices and herbs for cooking, and coffee filters, because it’s the little things that you forget about that add up fast, and I don’t mean just dollar-wise, but more convenience-wise. I forgot to buy coffee at the grocery store on our way, and I was so thankful that Laurie had plenty of extra there (which we replaced on our next grocery store visit, but just glad to have it!) Had I rented one of the other ‘empty’ houses or condos, which come with just standard cookware etc. I never would have remembered all the little things, and it would have taken away from the overall ease of the vacation. The weather varied over the two weeks from high 60’s to low 80’s. We had a couple of very windy days and huge waves, and we all had so much fun boogie boarding and building sand creatures. We had a little rain, for a couple of days, and having a fully stocked game cupboard was priceless. That started a gaming streak of Clue, Yahtzee, scrabble, trivial pursuit and Monopoly. It was so fun. We rented a stand up paddle board from Cape Haze Marina, which was so great we ended up purchasing it. What a great place to use it! Laurie is so helpful with making sure you know just what you need and how to get it organized as far as food/grocery store, the water taxi, etc. She's like a personal vacation assistant. We'll be back."

  • A little slice of paradise

    "We booked this place on a recommendation and boy were they right. The house was great. They had everything we could have needed. They even provided wine, cheese and chocolates with a nice note. We had two couples another adult and a baby. The only thing we had to bring was a pack n play for the baby. The decor was great. The screened in lanai was great especially early mornings and late night. The location is perfect for beach goers. I will definitely rent here again!!! And I would highly recommend it to anyone!"

  • Peaceful Paradise with gorgeous sunsets

    "LOVE this heavenly quiet condo, it is the perfect place to go and forgot the rest of the world. Arrive with swimsuits, a few necessities, food and drinks! And the fun starts. Gorgeous sunsets, an empty beach, you truly have your own island. Our latest stay for the Fishing Tournament did not disappoint with 2 days of fun with friends. The unit is wonderful and the owners a pleasure. We have been many times and will definitely be back very soon! Highly recommended to family and friends."

  • 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."
