About the property

2 Bedroom Close to Beach, Free Kayaks, Great Value on Little Gasparilla Island!

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 cute no-frills cottage is the perfect place for a small family or two couples who want an inexpensive base from which to enjoy Little Gasparilla Island. It is clean and comfortable and includes 3 free kayaks, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, outdoor shower, access to dock 36 and it is just a short one-minute walk to Little Gasparilla's beautiful beach.

The house is freshly painted in bright, cheery colors and is clean as a pin. An open front porch offers glimpses of the Gulf and has comfortable chairs and a table for outdoor dining. The living room is spacious and open with lots of built-in seating. The kitchen has a unique vintage table created with hundreds of shells collected from the beach by the previous owners.

The master bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has two twins. The bathroom has a tub/shower combination so bathing little ones is a breeze. The downstairs outdoor shower also makes it easy to rinse off after a trip to the beach. The home has a large pantry with lots of room for your groceries and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need for simple beach meals. You are welcome to use whatever you find in the pantry. Because the owners use the home themselves fairly often, the pantry is better stocked than most. There are puzzles and games for the occasional rainy day. The cottage is simple and unpretentious but perfect for a Little Gasparilla getaway!

LITTLE GASPARILLA FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...PLEASE READ!

• 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 cottage has a charcoal grill.

• 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.

• Golf carts are not necessary; the island is only 100-200 yards wide in most places and our concierge will meet you upon arrival to bring you to the house. But they are fun to go exploring.

• 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 most homes charge a pet fee.

• There is no wi-fi in this cottage. We can sometimes provide a mobile hotspot. If you have requested 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!"™
