Cottage, 2 Bedrooms 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Little Gasparilla Island is a bridgeless barrier island located between Naples and Sarasota, accessible only by boat or water taxi.

Try snook fishing on the beach or Tarpon fishing the Boca Grande pass. There are seven miles of white sand beaches that is great hunting for shells and sharks teeth. Or relax with a cold beverage and enjoy tanning and the peaceful island atomsphere where the island folks are friendly and enjoy the sunsets while looking for the green flash.

Boat Slip is included with rental.

Island is dog friendly.

Golf cart rentals are available on the island.

The island is where true friends gather to share a story or a cold drink and enjoy a little bit of the old Florida life style. We bought 'It's Always Five O'Clock' in 1997 and hope to retire here someday.

What a perfect little home on a perfect island with a perfect host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time on the island. We have been going to Little Gasparilla for over 10 years staying in a variety of different homes. Mary's little beach cottage was more than perfect for our fishing trip. The house was very clean, had everything you need, was in a great location and had a very nice welcoming basket waiting for us when we got there! The dock was perfect for our 22 foot bay boat and the dock was brand new so that made things nice. The neighbors are great people and great people to have conversations with (most live there full time or for 6 months out of the year). We had an all around tremendous experience with no problems what so ever. Mary is a great host and is very accommodating and will help you with any questions and concerns. We will definitely be staying there again!

This was our first time on LGI and is was beautiful. I found this place on VRBO and it was great. The house was fully stocked with everything you need. Mary was such a nice lady to deal with. They even had a nice little welcoming basket for us it was so nice and thoughtful. The screen porch is great for evenings of relaxing and enjoying the quiet. It was the ideal location right between the beach and the boat ramp. We will definitely be booking this place again and I have already referred it to a couple of our friends.

This is the best equipped rental unit we have ever stayed in. If you needed something, it was there. The home is comfortable and well furnished. The bathroom and kitchen are modern and functional. I would recommend this unit to anyone who is seeking quiet and comfort in LGI.

Very enjoyable!

  • 4 of 5

The owners, Greg and Mary, do a great job of making you feel welcome from the time you set foot in their home. A basket greets you with a few goodies. This was our 2nd stay at their home. First time was in March of 2014. The house is conveniently located to the bayside dock and a short walk to the beach. The kitchen is stocked with all the cooking utensils you need to cook up your fresh catch of the day. The neighbors, Alice and Rod, are delightful and helpful. We're sad to be home. Already missing the sand in our toes and the sounds of the surf in our ear.

A little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place on a recommendation and boy were they right. The house was great. They had everything we could have needed. They even provided wine, cheese and chocolates with a nice note. We had two couples another adult and a baby. The only thing we had to bring was a pack n play for the baby. The decor was great. The screened in lanai was great especially early mornings and late night. The location is perfect for beach goers. I will definitely rent here again!!! And I would highly recommend it to anyone!
