February 2018

The condo was very comfortable and provided really quick and easy access to the beach. The beach itself was incredible - delicious water for swimming, amazing and abundant shells and miles of open, unpopulated sand to walk and explore! The pictures and descriptions of the condo and beach are accurate. The sunsets are into the water and spectacular every single night! If you love the beach, the ocean and the quiet of living in it's rhythm, then you will love Lisa and Chris's place. Lisa and Chris were quick to answer questions and ready to be helpful in making our stay wonderful!

February 2018

Lisa and Chris's place was absolutely wonderful and comfortable. They were great communicators and very responsive. We loved staying at the private and exclusive Little Gasparilla Island. The 10 minute ferry ride was easy and once we got to the island it was easy to get our things to the condo. We got to enjoy a lot of long walks. I've never seen so many seashells on a beach. At dusk we got to see the dolphins and great sunsets. At night we walked the beach with headlamps. Sitting on the decks of the condo we could hear the ocean all day and night. Adventuring on the island, we found Hoots Library. The history of the island is really interesting too. Everyone we met on the island was very nice. This place is definitely paradise. Thanks Lisa and Chris!

• January 2018

• We had a wonderful time at Lisa and Chris’s place, the location was beautiful and they were very responsive. Loved hanging out on the screened in deck in the evening with the sun setting over the water. Check-in and check-out were very easy, we brought our 1-year old and it wasn’t stressful at all. To any others with children, we were able to rent baby items from a place in Englewood (pack-n-play) and have them delivered right to the mainland security gait prior to arrival which saved us any hassle. Beautiful desolate island, would definitely stay here again!

• November 2017

• Best value on the island!! Lisa & Chris’ communication was second to none. Central part of the island and the beach was incredible.

• August 2017

• Paradise! Lisa and Chris's apartment is exactly how they have it pictured. Beach is a 30 second walk down a boardwalk. Beach is gorgeous it is full of shells, sand dollars and even shark teeth on shore!! Sunsets are breathtaking. It was very easy to communicate with Lisa and Chris, they were always very helpful and informative with any questions we had. Little Gasparilla island is a hidden gem perfect for a quiet getaway, Lisa and Chris's place is the perfect home to enjoy the island! We will definitely be back!

A perfect place to almost unplug!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Chris were very responsive, and great to rent from! The place has Kayaks to explore the bay visiting the resident dolphins and Mantees(don't get too close), fishing rods/tackle to fish the beach/dock, beach chairs and toys for the kids. There is internet and dish TV if you chose to stay plugged in, the kitchen is well supplied with pots/pans/etc... for the budding chef. We had a wonderful time & will be coming back ASAP!

An excellent experience for us

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of March on Little Gasparilla Island in this great one bedroom condo. The views of the Gulf are spectacular. We liked that there were three sliding glass doorways in the condo. The unit was very comfortable and everything that we needed was there. Chris and Lisa were so nice and very accommodating and responsive to any needs that we had. The pool was close by and very enjoyable. Just a short walk on the boardwalk to the beach. We enjoyed the ferry - a chance to get to know neighbors and chat on the way in to the mainland. All in all, a great place.

Best beach vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location, right on the Gulf of Mexico. Condo was lovely with comfortable furnishings and bed. All the things you could want for a beach vacation were there. Kayaks, beach chairs and towels, beautiful beach covered with white sand and shells. Sunsets on the beach were incredible. The owner was always available and took care of all our requests immediately. Parking was secure in a gated community on the mainland and the ferry to the island was easy and convenient. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.
