About the property

Old Florida Cottage On Little Gasparilla Island. Just Steps To The Beach!

Leave your car and your cares at the marina because Little Gasparilla is accessible only by water taxi! That means our beaches are uncrowded and tourists and traffic are just a mainland memory. If you are looking for a quiet tropical island to relax and unplug, Little Gasparilla is your dream vacation spot. Our "nightlife" consists of giant sea turtles laying their eggs -- our only bar is the sand bar where you can find sand dollars and shells!

This cottage represents a bit of "Old Florida" on Little Gasparilla Island. It features warm pine paneling, original hardwood floors, a fireplace, two comfortable bedrooms downstairs and a spacious bedroom upstairs with Gulf views.

The sunny kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances you need for cooking your favorite beach meal: from a quick breakfast to a gourmet meal. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms downstairs and this home is not situated on pilings so it is one of the few homes on the island that might be suitable for the mobility impaired. For those who love island life but don't want to climb stairs, this home would be a perfect option!

Upstairs, another large bedroom with high ceilings and another bathroom offers privacy and quiet -- and this bedroom opens to a screened porch with Gulf views.

The beach is just a short one to two-minute walk from your front door. The home is located off the main road for additional privacy and peace and quiet. There is access to Dock 38 if you wish to rent or bring a boat. The home features a large, grassy yard that is perfect for yard games and relaxing outdoors. The home comes complete with yard games including horseshoes and badminton.

This home represents a great value for a family get-together or two couples who each want their own space. And you can't beat the Little Gasparilla sunsets you will enjoy from the upstairs porch, which also has a private entrance.

About Little Gasparilla Vacation Rentals

We have lived on the island for 30 years and we started renting our own home many years ago when we traveled. Then our neighbors asked us to handle rentals for them -- and now we offer several vacation rentals in a variety of price ranges and locations on the island...from dramatic beachfront homes to cozy interior homes with lots of privacy. Our homes are painstakingly cared for, and very comfortable. We want you to feel like you are vacationing in a friend's home rather than a sterile "rental unit". So relax, kick off your shoes, dig your toes in the sand and enjoy the island lifestyle! "Just bring your groceries, flip flops and a tropical attitude!"™

Perfect beach house for a family! Close to the beach and the dock!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the Beachview Bungalow! The home was as described, spacious, clean and in the perfect location!! We were close to the dock and only a few minutes walk to the beach.

This house was so cute and has a huge yard for kids or dogs to play in. Our teenage boys were reluctant to join us for a weekend on the beach but once they saw the yard and the house, a beach vacation suddenly didn’t sound so bad! This house had a large loft style bedroom and bathroom upstairs with a screened in balcony. The boys were delighted to have their own space and we were delighted to have some privacy in the downstairs room, which also had a connecting bathroom and bonus bedroom too!

We had meals on the deck and it was so nice to be surrounded by lush and green trees and plants, pink sunsets and the sound of the ocean!

We spent our days fishing, snorkeling, playing frisbee in the yard and simply enjoying some family time on the island.

This rental was perfect for us because of the great beach and dock access and the space and split floor plan of the home. Perfect home for families!

We also appreciated all the information about the island we received before and the info left at the house. We felt very welcomed and all our needs were anticipated!

Highly recommend!
