Located on Little Gasparilla Island, this private beach house is the ultimate holiday destination for those seeking true relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Accessed in 10 minutes by water taxi or private boat, the house offers you a rare opportunity to discover a true sense of the original character of Florida. The beach house comes with a fully equipped kitchen, high-speed Wi-Fi Internet access, satellite TV, BBQ, private beach access and private mooring/pier. Almost every room boasts stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico – sights of passing dolphins are not unusual.

There are no cars or shops on this tiny barrier island, however restaurants and shopping opportunities can be accessed in a short 10-minute boat ride to the main island.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

That is a fantastic place! We stayd there with 8 people and 2 babies in 4 comfortable bed rooms with large beds and 2 well equipped bathrooms. The open kitchen has a lot of space and is well equipped. The living has a hughe front door to the terraces (2 - one has a roof, the other one is open) with a table were 20 people can be seated! you can see the sea from almost every room. The house is located as you can also see on the pictures - directly at the beach. during the time we have been there, the beach was almost all empty and we had the feeling to have a private beach for us. There is no neighbouring house in one side, so you get the feeling of being all alone on the island!

We had an electronic golf cart that we rented, but hardly used it as the island is small and we walked on the sandy 'streets'... Strong recommendation - we will return next year!

Casa hermosa en una isla chiquita

  • 5 of 5

Que casa más hermosa! Para nuestro grupo de 6 personas fue un paraíso perfecto y privado. La casa tiene de todo, el aire funciona bien tambien el wifi. La playa parece privada (ni los vecinos molestan), el mar perfecto para nadar. No hay coches solo buggies - por eso vives en un silencio total. Es un ambiente sin estrés.Tienes que planificar tu compras un poco porque en la isla no se puede comprar nada. Tienes que regresar al otro lado en watertaxi. Lo único triste fue el día de regreso.

No importa, regresamos seguro! Matito & Olguita

Car: not necessary

Discover vintage Florida on Little Gasparilla Island - leave noise and speed of the modern world behind you. There are no cars & shops on this tiny barrier Island; (access only via 10min taxi boat/private boat ride) - only basic sandy paths, lonesome beaches & rich wildlife and flora. Daily sights of dolphins from the wooden house porch are nothing unusual. The area around the Island is celebrated by sport fishers within the US. Located right at the beach together with a private beach access brings you as close at it gets to the ocean. Also you find your own private mooring/pier. The actual length of the Island is only 7 miles & a couple hundred meters wide. Close restaurants and shopping centers are only 10 min away as soon as you are back at the Marina on the main land. The exclusive neighbouring island, Boca Grande, offers also first class restaurants and shops. The closest airports are Fort Myers or Tampa. (60 -100 miles) - Florida like it was at the times of Flipper...
