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!

Great Location And Gulf View

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a recluse getaway with our 8 and 10 year old. This place was perfect. We loved the ferry rides to and from the island. The pool was right outside our door. The views from the lanai were beautiful. Furniture was very comfortable, we loved the decor. Unfortunately, we were only able to use the beach two of the days because of red tide. We found tons of shark teeth and enjoyed the beach entirely to ourselves for those two days though. We were very happy to find such a great condo with a great location at such a great price!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The time we spend on LGI was great. It was disappointing that we could not use the beach any of the days we were there because of the red tide, but that was Mother Nature's fault. It was nice to get away and enjoy some relaxing time in an area with few other people.

Little Gasperilla Island

  • 5 of 5

This was probably one of the best getaways my husband and I have had in years. Lisa and Chris answered any questions we had and were so sweet and welcoming. The condo is beautiful and so cozy with excellent views. We loved the boardwalk from the ferry and all the way to the beach. We walked the entire beach and toured the island. It's a must. It's just so unique! It's the perfect romantic getaway or for family. Thank you again to Lisa and Chris for making us feel so welcome.

We had an amazing stay! The condo was everything you see in the pics. Chris and Lisa were super helpful with the procedures, accessibility, preparation for staying on an island, etc. Check in was simple, guards were so pleasant, and of course Linda was great. Will absolutely stay again. Thank you!

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!
