About Don Parker
After moving to Rotonda West, FL. 11 years ago from the Washington, D.C. area with my lovely Brazilian born wife Izabel to start our new life adventure, we discovered LGI 10 years ago and have been vacationing here ever since. We typically stayed in a beach front/view home and often changed properties on the island. After finding and then spending several vacations at the Hideaway and loving it so much, we decided after looking here for over 3 three years, to purchase this wonderful end unit condo. The free and convenient ferry service is huge. It is our future plans to retire here; and when our unit is not rented we only have a 10 minute car ride from our home and a 8 minute ferry ride to our " We can't believe a place like this still exists".

Great condo, great island!
We had tons of fun It was a quick little vacation. The condo is cute, clean and bright. The island was great and we had so much fun. Thanks for having us and we look forward to staying with you again in the future.
A vacation like no other!!
Looking to get away from all the hustle and bustle of every day life? Then this is the place to be. LGI is the perfect "Hideaway". I love the city life, but I did not realize how much I loved peace and tranquility until our vacation. I am at a loss for words, you have to experience it. As I am writing this, I am struggling because I am not a writer, especially descriptive writing. Having said that, try to imagine hearing nothing but the sounds of birds chirping, wind chimes in the breeze, the smell of salty air, and waves crashing on the shore. That is all you will hear, see, and smell on LGI. The sounds of peace! Paradise!
Don was fantastic! He helped make our vacation a success from the beginning to the day we left. The Condo was perfect for the five of us. My husband and I have two teenagers. Our daughter brought a friend and there was plenty of room for all of us. I thought the kids may get bored but they loved playing in the ocean with the tubes and boogie boards. Our son fished and hung out at the beach. Loved watching them put the screens down to enjoy nature. They all asked if we were going to come back. YES, is the only answer to give them.
The ferry service was a blessing. We jumped on board several times to run to the grocery store. There is one about 5-10 minutes from the ferry dock or there is a Wal-Mart about 15-20 away for bigger trips. We chose to stay on the island and cook all meals which the kids loved and we did not waste time with crowds and waits times (at restaurants) like we have in the past. It was truly quality time with the family.
This unit (F1) has a great view of the bay. You can sit and drink coffee and watch the sun come up from the screened in porch. The unit is close to the beach and having the golf cart to use makes transporting beach items a piece of cake. The unit was very clean when we arrived and has everything you need.
Thank you, Parkers! We will be back!

We visited the island in early January during an unusual cold spell. Having to spend more time indoors than we had planned made us really appreciate this great property: it was clean, cheery and very comfortable, with excellent beds and a well stocked kitchen. Everything worked well including the golf cart! Communication with the host was timely and prompt. The island and the beaches are beautiful and we would love to return for another visit when the weather is warmer.
If you enjoy crowded beaches, outlet shopping, tourist traps, nightlife, or the typical spring break crowd, this is NOT the place for you. However, if you are looking for miles of deserted beaches, shells everywhere, crystal clear water, great snorkeling, great fishing, getting away from it all, and unforgettable sunsets, Little Gasparilla Island is the place for you.
Don and Izabel's condo is exactly as pictured: recently renovated, well appointed, ultra-comfortable bedding, well stocked...the perfect home base for your island adventure. The free ferry service to and from the island does make it easy to get back to the mainland (if you want to). We thought we would make several day trips during our week-long stay but ended up only making two quick trips to the mainland and couldn't wait to get back to the island. You will not regret your choice to stay here!
Best for get-away-from-it-all travelers, families, beach and nature lovers.
