About the Property

No cars, no stores, just absolute paradise!
Watch the sunset right from the screened in porch.
Little Gasparilla Island is a barrier island only accessible by boat. The island has 7 miles of 'Old Florida Beaches'. You truly feel like you are on a private island. The island offers some of the best fishing. You can fish from the dock or the beach. The shelling is incredible. You can find shark teeth and sand dollars. Wildlife is all around you. There are dolphins, manatee, gopher turtles, blue heron and pelicans.
Our home has a King bed downstairs in the master bedroom and 2 queens in the second bedroom upstairs. All of our beds have comfortable memory foam toppers.
A golf cart is included to explore the sandy paths on the island. There are beach chairs, beach toys, beach umbrella and a handy beach cart.
Down on the deck is a table with chairs and a charcoal grill. An outdoor shower is downstairs, which is so refreshing after a day at the beach.
WIFI is provided by Hideaway Bay Beach Club. There are 3 flat screen televisions with satellite TV/HD/ DVR. There is a 47 inch flat screen TV in the living room on a convenient telescoping swivel mount. The upstairs bedroom has X BOX 360 with an assortment of games.

The ferry is free for guests and runs every 2-3 hours depending on the day of the week. There is free gated parking on the mainland. Also included is the use of the heated community pool. You can even bring your own boat and dock it right at the community dock. There are 33 dock slips on a first come first serve basis. If you choose, you can use the community grill and smoker.

Why the Owner Chose Placida, FL, USA:
We have always wanted a vacation home. We stumbled upon Little Gasparilla Island on the internet and loved the concept of this barrier island with no cars. We fell in love the first time we visited the island. It truly is paradise. The sunsets are amazing. The beach is uncrowded and peaceful. It is the perfect place for us to gather as a family and decompress. Every time we leave the island our family bond is closer.
