About the Property

Beach Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

'Paradise Found'

'Like New' beautifully decorated STILT home on a private, bridgeless island just a few yards from 7 miles of secluded, unspoiled beaches. Enjoy beautiful views of the gulf and sunsets from two screened lanais .

Sounds of the surfs are endless, yet serene, as you nap or are in for a good nights sleep. It is the paradise you’ve been looking for. The fun and sun - whether you are enjoying the beautiful beaches or some of the best Snook and Tarpon fishing in Florida. Great shelling -Sanibel without the crowds!

Little Gasparilla Island has no roads, only winding sand paths to be explored by foot or golf cart. It is accessible only by boat and just a few minutes from the mainland.

So, come enjoy this beautiful paradise getaway.


Amenities: Accommodations for four adults or two adults and three small children. First bedroom has a queen size bed; the second bedroom has two twins. There are ceiling fans in all rooms and lanais. Open kitchen is well equipped with microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and dishes/utensils. Other features include gas BBQ grill, all linens, washer & dryer, TV with satellite, DVD, radio/CD player. Supplied by city water system with drinkable tap water.


No Pets Please and No Smoking Inside!

Golf cart rentals available on the Island.

Just bring your food and other personal needs. We have all the comforts of home to make your vacation wonderful.


Activities: Enjoy fishing and collecting shells and sharks teeth along the beach.

'Ghostcrabs' can be seen scurrying along the beaches and loggerhead turtles come up from the gulf during nesting season to lay their eggs. Pelicans and dolphins are abundant in the gulf and bay and you can frequently see manatees in the bay.
Shopping, golf and many fine restaurants are close by on the mainland.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I find nothing more relaxing than being near the water, and my home and vacation cottages are all just steps away. Just retired after 31 years in education, I am looking forward to more time in 'Paradise'!

Why the Owner Chose Placida, FL, USA:
About ten years ago we heard of a 'Little Island' that was accessible only by boat. After a little research we found it, made a trip down from NJ and purchased our cottage the next day. We have loved every minute we spend on the Island and enjoy sharing our vacation paradise with others. Many repeat guests are creating family traditions at 'Miss Patti's' cottage.
