Looking for a uniquely wonderful vacation that offers miles of an almost deserted beach, the ultimate in fishing, and lots of privacy, quiet times, and a glimpse of yesterday's Florida? Gasparilla Villa offers this and more. You have found a true island paradise for beach goers and fisherman alike. Your family and friends will never forget this wonderful experience.

Gasparilla Villa is tucked into mangroves and palms on the bay side of a quiet bridgeless barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico next to Boca Grande.

The Boca Grande area is world famous for its quality fishing and hosts one of the finest backwater flats in Florida. With a choice of bay fishing, surf and deep sea fishing, almost anything goes. Try your fishing skills on tarpon, snook, redfish, mullet, mackerel, red snapper and grouper. Gasparilla Villa has its own private dock, a newly expanded deck and covered fish cleaning table and lots of freezer space. Leave your fishing gear on the boat.

For the beach comber, there are miles and miles of almost deserted pristine beach with no condos, stores or gift shops. Abundant shells await with swimming and shore birds only a three minute walk away. At sunset, it is an island tradition to always be on the beach with your favorite beverage to watch the dramatic show and try to spot the elusive green flash.

Snorkel, kayak, canoe or sail in the waters that surround the island. Rent a golf cart and explore the miles of nature trails and roads. There is even a local captain that will give you and your guests a scenic tour. There are several excellent restaurants available by water taxi or your own boat for some of the finest seafood on the Gulf Coast. Numerous golf courses surround the area on the mainland.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by your personal island mate who will acquaint you with the Villa and the Island. Your island mate will be available all week to meet your needs.

A water taxi is available for transportation is you do not own a boat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We hope to make your stay at our home as pleasant as can be. We live in Gainesville, Fl. We have been married since 1978 and our love in life is enjoying life. We are both graduates of the University of Florida with degrees in Forestry. We have two sons who we adore deeply and are so proud of. One is a graduate of the University of North Florida and one is a graduate of the University of Florida

Why the Owner Chose Placida, FL, USA:
Teresa has been coming to Little Gasparilla Island since she was 14 years old. Her parents bought their house, which is right next to Gasparilla Villa in 1968.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Little Gasparilla Island is a part of Florida most folks do not to experience. If you like shopping malls and restaurants and lots of tourist activities, this is not the place for you. If you like to fish, enjoy swimming, shelling and sun bathing with little to no folks on the beach, then this is the place for you. We look forward to hosting you and your family.
