Leave your car and your cares on the mainland 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 fabulous 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is beautifully situated to afford you not only spectacular gulf views but balmy breezes as well. The home is open and airy with soaring high ceilings and three screened porches overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The porches afford you views of our memorable Little Gasparilla sunsets and a cool and shady spot to relax, enjoy a glass of wine and savor the beach breezes.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal or a casual beach picnic. Bedrooms are well appointed with comfortable mattresses, upscale bed linens, and your rental includes all linens, including beach towels.
The community offers a private fresh-water pool for use of guests only, and there are also grills available in common areas for guests' use. The community is beautifully landscaped with shell walkways, shaded pathways and a dune walk that leads to your private beach. Strewn with shells, the beach is a everyone's favorite spot. Private and seldom crowded, Little Gasparilla offers a glimpse of Florida the way it used to be, before high rises dominated the beaches. You can relax in a comfortable beach chair beneath your umbrella, stroll the shore searching for shark's teeth and shells, float on a raft in the gentle waves or fish right off the beach or off the dock.
Whether your idea of relaxation is sipping wine while watching the sun set over the Gulf, or taking an early morning stroll while collecting shells, Placida Beach offers it all. There is great fishing in the bay, and there are docks available for your rental boat. (Size limitations and daily dock fee apply.). The free ferry offers you the ultimate in island convenience and can whisk you away to your mainland vehicle in a matter of moments.
This condo combines luxury living with the casual charm of our island getaway for a truly memorable beach vacation.
