Great get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time! Nice to just kick back and not care about what time it is.

The house is easy to get to and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach. Saw Ospreys, tortoise, pelican, dolphins, crabs. Found the biggest sharks tooth yet!

Enjoyed fishing from the pier. No WiFi, so got a nice break from checking messages!

Our kind of place!!

We absolutely loved our stay at Little Gasparilla Island Getaway! Scott was very responsive to our inquiries while we were there. The home is very nicely decorated. If you are looking for a little time away from it all, you need to go to Gasparilla Island! We'll be back!

Beautiful home, awesome place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful! The house is just off the dock that your arrive at from the water taxi, makes it really easy for groceries and luggage.

Make sure when you come over the first time that you bring everything you will want for your trip. The Pirates water taxi was super easy to work with and they even waited up for us when our flight was delayed. The owners of the house were awesome as well! They checked up with us on the first day and made sure we were able to get into the house and everything was good.

If you are looking for a awesome place to get away from all the craziness this is the place to be! (Also, if you are in to shark toothing, this is the best place i have found for it!)

Beautiful, peaceful, tranquil getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 loved our stay. The dock was about 200 feet from the house, and the beach was a 2 minute walk down a sandy road. Everyone on the island was so friendly and welcoming. We loved having our dog with us!

Beach is beautiful, stunning sunsets and dolphin activity. Bay side is beautiful sunrises and good fishing with live bait ( get at Mario a before you come over).

House has beach chairs, floats, shelling nets, towels, kayaks, and wagon to get your stuff around. You may want to bring a beach umbrella/tent, fishing poles, net, bait bucket, sunblock, hats/long sleeve sun wear, and bug spray.

The house has everything you need - washer/dryer, cable tv, board games, gas grill, indoor shower and bathroom, and second outdoor enclosed shower. A/C worked great. Clothing storage space tight, so pack light. There is no WIFI at house, but our Verizon hotspot worked great, and our phones had good reception,

You can only get to the island by water taxi, you call Pirates Water taxi- call early Emmit books up. He picks you up at Eldred’s Marina in Placida, FL. Boat ride is about 5 minutes. You can also rent a golf cart - you need to call about a month in advance to secure a cart. We didn’t have a cart and it was just fine though!

Do not bring too much stuff, you have to take it over on taxi and back again. You also have to take your trash back with you to the marina. The marina will let you put in dumpster for $2.50/bag. No big deal, just good to know.

You will be taking all your stuff in carts from dock to your house, so pack light. You don’t need much anyway- you have washer/dryer and there are no restaurants or reason to dress up. We brought bottled water, paper plates, paper towels, plastic wear- dont need it. Water out of tap tastes great, dishwasher and plenty of regular plates/bowls, plenty dish towels. Less to bring in/out.les to bring in and pack out. The owner even has dog bowls for you:)

The owners are very helpful and nice. Would recommend this rental - great value! This is a laid back vacation, plenty to do if you can enjoy nature, fish, swim, read, relax. We loved it.
