"This was my 4th visit to Gasperilla Island. I always love coming to stay, it is so beautiful. I brought family along and they didn't want to leave. We love the miles of beaches, the marine life and different animals on the island. The house has everything we need. Always love our visit with Duffy and Mike. They make us feel at home away from home. I hope to bring my sister to enjoy the beauty."

"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."

"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!"
