About the Property

3 bed 2 bath 100 yards to dock and to beach---SLEEPS UP TO 6

The Captain's Bungalow is a single family home located on the secluded island of Little Gasparilla. The island is situated in southwest Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, just north of world famous Boca Grande. LGI (Little Gasparilla Island) is away from it all with access only by boat and no paved roads. Getting around the island is easy by walking on the sand paths or traveling through the Australian Pines on a golf cart. Wildlife is abundant on and around the island with Gopher tortoises, Bald Eagles, Osprey, Sea turtles, Dolphins, Manatees and numerous salt water fish including Redfish, Tarpon, Trout, Flounder and much more. Whether it's sitting on the dock soaking up the sunshine or fishing for your prize catch of the day, the list is endless with the possibilities. The white sandy beach with the azure blue Gulf of Mexico awaits your beach chair. Imaging the tranquility of the beach with very few visitors. Seven miles of beach access are at your disposal.

Our home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms with a large kitchen/ living great-room. The kitchen comes fully equipped for your culinary needs. The screen porch is an excellent place to read or just relax on the porch swing. If hammocks are more your style the covered area under the house is perfect for you. A gas grill is provided for you to prepare your catch of the day or a delicious steak.

Satellite TV is available as well as a PlayStation 3 gaming system. Plug your smart phone into our stereo and relax listening to your favorite music.

Two bedrooms upstairs feature queen beds with memory foam mattresses. Our downstairs bedroom has two single beds and another bathroom. If you must do laundry, we have our own washer and dryer downstairs and there is plenty of room to store your catch of the day or extra ice in our downstairs refrigerator/ freezer.

The large yard is quite unique for the island. There is plenty of space for relaxing on the lawn to play corn hole, croquet or boci ball. We even have a fire pit for evening bonfires and smores creations. Our home is rented on a one week minimum during season.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We purchased this dream property and took six months to bring it up to our standards. We decorated it with care and added many items from our personal home and travels. This is our second home that we are happy to share with you. We hope that the memories are long lasting like they are for us when we get the chance to stay at the Captatin's Bungalow. Relax and enjoy!

Why the Owner Chose Placida, FL, USA:
How often do you get the chance to get away from it all? This is it. When you are on Little Gasparilla Island, you may only be less than a mile from the mainland, but you feel free & far .

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Seclusion and peace and quiet! Quiet walks on the beach and you can even bring your dog. Access is by boat only. If you don't have your own boat, water taxi service may be arranged.
