We are located in the center of Little Gasparilla Island approximately 100 yards from the bay and 300 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. (See location map) From our home you can fish, crab, or shrimp off one of two private docks, search the miles of white sand beach for exotic sea shells, surf fish the beautiful waters of the gulf, or just relax and enjoy the gorgeous beach that Little Gasparilla Island is famous for.
PLEASE NOTE: Maximum length on a boat is 24 feet.
Access to the island is by your own boat or there is a private water taxi available at a reasonable rate. This lack of a bridge makes LGI unique and adds to it's relaxed atmosphere. There are no paved streets only sand roads with the main mode of transportation golf carts and foot power.
We built this home for our family to use and it has worked perfectly for us and will for you too. There are 4 bedrooms all with king size beds(several can be separated into 2 ex-long twins) with 2 full baths and 2 half baths. There are porches on front and back and 2 decks off the second floor bedrooms. The living area is very open so everyone can be together whether cooking dinner or watching TV.

Best Little Getaway Ever
Our family loved the island, the people on the island and everything about the house and the water on both sides! Great place to make family memories and the owners were so gracious and accommodating!
Don't miss an opportunity to have a relaxing but fun filled vacation at Sea Shell Haven!
Fun for families
Great house close to both docks and the beach. Everything was clean and as described in the listing, plenty of beach chairs, towels, etc. We stayed with 3 kids and the house was well equipped for us, the kids had a blast. We all had a great time!
Awesome house on a relaxing island!
Nice big rooms, clean house, close to the dock and beach.
Large, comfortable house
If you have a large group, this is the best value I've been able to find. The home is spacious and comfortable. We loved the many decks. The owner was great to work with.
Such a memorable, cherished time with myself, and 7 of my dearest lifelong friends!
I must admit that upon arrival I was quite shocked by the “out side” appearance of the property...it could use some TLC.
However, thankfully...I was very pleased with the inside of our rental home design/appearance.
Although, there were a few things that required immediate attention (thankfully two of my male friends are quite the handy men!)
Such as the dish washer didn’t work (even after cleaning the trap that was full of grease, etc.) it never worked during our stay.
One of the quest rooms upstairs bed platform was broken & missing a couple of screws that they fixed in order to keep the mattress in place....and from popping, cracking.
It took us forever to just be able to open the sliding door (which my friend also was able to offer maintenance...and suggested more needed.)until we were finally able to get it open, in order to enjoy the back deck.
The smoke detector in our bedroom (again, upstairs) was completely missing, with loose wires exposed.
And, last...but not least, the beach chairs & red wagon are in desperate need of replacement.
Some of the chairs were not even usable from rips & when there are 8 of you arriving the extra wagon is desperately in need in order to bring in luggage, food & supplies needed...even for days that follow.
Please don’t feel that I am out to pick things apart, because my friends and I literally had one of the best times of our lives and were very comfortable in the home.
Our dear friends that reside part-time in FL were able to dock and pick us up on their catamaran to go for daily sails, when we weren’t on the breath taking beautiful beach!
The location of the home was perfect for us...right in between the beach & the dock to meet our friends!
However, being a professional & business owner myself, I would certainly want these things brought to my attention, in order to succeed any expectation from guests.
We are definitely looking forward (already) to our next visit to Little Gasparilla Island!
Thank you a million times over!!!
What an Amazing Place! Had Everything We Needed. A Slice of Heaven!
What an great house! Very roomy. Great amenities. Right in the middle of the island, close to everything. We really enjoyed our time and are looking for a time when we can go back for a longer visit. Would definitely recommend this awesome home!
