About the property

Great 2 Bd On Little Gasparilla Close To Bay And Beach; Excellent Value!

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! **Kayaks included for weekly rentals only.

The Seahorse Hideaway is a lovingly cared for home that has been in the same family since it was built in the 70s.

This home also provides a $100 golf cart voucher toward the rental of a golf cart from LGI Carts to explore the island during your stay. You use this certificate just like cash and the renter is still responsible for any additional rental fees, security deposit and any damage fees. The voucher cannot be redeemed for cash should the guest elect not to rent a golf cart or if LGI carts has no availability. Please make golf cart reservations early!

The home features 2 bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with two twins. One of the nicest features is a comfortable screened porch that extends the full width of the home, allowing you to dine on the porch, watch the neighbors go by on their golf carts and enjoy the nightly sunset procession to the beach!

The home is a one-minute walk from the dock (Dock 26) and about a two-minute walk from the beach, so you are close to your boat (if you choose to bring one) and the beautiful pristine beaches of Little Gasparilla.

The kitchen is well-stocked with all appliances and pots and pans and everything you need for your stay, be it a long weekend or a full month. The home also has a flatscreen TV, and is stocked with beach chairs, beach towels, an umbrella, a washer and dryer and a brand new charcoal grill.

Downstairs there is a convenient outdoor shower and a comfortable hammock for relaxing in the cooling beach breezes.

The master bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has twin beds.


• You cannot drive your car to the island and the only access is via water taxi; there is no vehicle ferry.

• You must park your car at the marina at the mainland but it will be perfectly safe there; parking is $6 a day.

• The water taxi is $10 per person each way and he will drop you right at our dock

• All homes come with a grill. This home has a charcoal grill so plan on bringing charcoal with you.

• All homes come with beach chairs and an umbrella.

• You must bring all groceries to the island with you.

• There are no stores of any kind on the island, not even a convenience store.

• There is no need to bring drinking water; the water from the tap is safe and drinkable.

• There are first responders on the island and we have 911 service in case of an emergency.

• You can fish off the dock or the beach but non-Florida residents will need to purchase a fishing license.

• The beach is dog-friendly but dogs must be under your control, non-aggressive and there is a $100 pet fee per pet.

• This home has no wi-fi. If you have requested use of a mobile hotspot, keep in mind this is NOT the internet you are used to on the mainland. There is no unlimited data and wi-fi is NOT for entertainment. No Netflix, no skyping, no streaming music, no downloading videos, etc. Many people find the mobile hotspots on their smartphones are better alternatives.

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 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!"™

Cute beach house minutes from private beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our time at this adorable home on Little Gasparilla Island! This home was loacated close to the dock, where we fished and only a minute or two walk from the beach, which we pretty much had to ourselves! The home was clean and comfortable and perfect had plenty of space for even more than 2 people. We enjoyed playing board games and having meals on the screened in porch in the evenings and spent our days walking the island and snorkeling and kayaking in the ocean. We were delighted to have the beach to ourselves and enjoyed how peaceful and relaxing this home was! Everything in the home was as shown and the staff couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. They took the time to welcome us and show us around the home and island. This cozy beach home was the perfect location and spot for our weekend away! It had a full kitchen, large rooms and a comfortable living space and all needed appliances! I would highly recommend this home for couples or a family who wants to enjoy a beautiful beach vacation! The pictures online didn’t even begin to show how beautiful this home and island were! It was completely charming and met all our needs! We will definitely be back!
