Overview

About the property

Comfortable family home 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!

The May House is a perfect house for snowbirds looking for their winter getaway. It is perfect for a couple, with a comfortable king bedroom, en suite bathroom, large living area, kitchen/dining area and a second bedroom with four twins (bunk beds.) The house is situated within easy walking distance of the beach and the bay, on a large, beautifully landscaped lot. It has a large screened porch facing south for lots of sunshine. This home is perfect for 4 to 6 but can easily expand to suit as many as 10 should your family need that much room.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need, there is a washer-dryer upstairs in the hallway, the bathrooms have been updated and the home has every convenience you could need for a relaxing beach vacation!

The owners will include use of their golf cart free for stays of one month or more, and will allow you to rent their cart for stays of a week or more for a nominal rental amount.

LITTLE GASPARILLA FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...PLEASE READ!

• You cannot drive your car to the house or 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. Normal ferry hours are approximately 8-5 every day.

• All homes come with a grill. This home has a gas 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.

• This house does not have wi-fi but we may be able to provide a jetpack IF you request one in advance. BUT 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 also -- and now we offer 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 want you to feel like you are vacationing in a friend's home rather than a sterile "rental unit". So relax, kick off your flip flops, dig your toes in the sand and enjoy the island lifestyle!
