Third Time Staying at the Blue Pearl
Third time staying at the Blue Pearl and it's still as beautiful and magical as the first. We have stayed at a few places on the island and in my experience I would say that Mary Lou has the cleanest and best managed unit on the island. The place is super clean and comfortable, the kitchen is fully stocked with the type of utensils and cooking ware that you use at your home and Mary Lou is super responsive. We stay at 3 or 4 VRBO's a year and this is by far my favorite because of the owner, the house and the location. If you are considering a stay on LGI you HAVE to try the Blue Pearl!
Love the Blue Pearl - Beautiful, impeccably maintained and decorated home!
Mary Lou and the Blue Pearl are true gems! Mary Lou is a wonderful hostess, who goes out of her way to ensure that your stay will be memorable. Our family had a wonderful stay this past week and certainly plan to stay again in the future. The home is beautifully furnished, offers wonderful views of the Bay...and some of the most incredible sunrises you will see anywhere! It has a well-equipped kitchen to facilitate meal prep., has all the amenities to make your stay comfortable (Smart TV, wi-fi, games, incredible upper and lower deck and patio areas with nice seating) as well as full size washer and dryer. In addition, the home and grounds are very well maintained.
We enjoyed the 3 kayaks that are provided, which allowed us to explore the Bay area. We also used the kayaks to fish from, which were more than adequate to do so comfortably. The home is also only a couple of hundred yards from the beach / Gulf of Mexico, where we enjoyed searching for sea shells and shark teeth. I should also mention that the Bay offered us an incredible setting to view Manatee, Dolphins and Osprey. Thanks again for a wonderful stay! Todd and Jennifer B.
House was beautiful and immaculate, the bay views are spectacular and Mary Lou was a pleasure to work with! I can’t imagine there could be many houses more beautiful or detailed to perfection the way Mary Lou’s home is. She provided everything we needed to make ourselves at home and have a much needed break from the Kansas cold weather. We look forward to returning!
Perfect island home
This home worked perfectly for my husband and I. It is exactly as the pictures represent and exceptionally clean. We enjoyed being close to Don Pedro State Park. We utilized the very nice kayaks to paddle over to the park mangroves every evening. We rented a boat and it was so convenient to have the dock out our front door. We would take the boat out early to fish the flats and spent the hot afternoons on the shaded deck under the fans. From the Kayaks we caught Snook and sea trout on fly rods all within sight of the dock. The owner is wonderful to work with. We often use VRBO and this is one of the best places we have rented. I highly recommend this rental.
Second Visit At The Blue Pearl Was Just As Wonderful As The First!
I can't say it enough, place is clean, well maintained and very comfortable! We spent the week of the Fourth and it was loads of fun for the family. All we needed was some mask and snorkels for the kids and they were entertained for hours finding sharks teeth and shells. Island itself is truly unique and the Blue Pearl is a wonderful place to stay. I think I said it before, we have stayed at a few places on the island and the Blue Pearl is by far the most well maintained and well managed place we have stayed to date. This is our second stay at the Blue Pearl and I definitely see a third in our near future. Mary Lou is easy to communicate with via email or phone and she is not one to forget a single detail in getting the place ready for your stay. Highly recommend the Blue Pearl for creating some wonderful memories!
This is an amazing property in an unbelievably beautiful location
It is a rare thing to find a great property in a great location but blue pearl on little gazparilla island achieves this. It is really well equipped as well as being very well looked after. The large bedroom balcony gives a great location for early morning coffee and to watch the sun rise. Where else can you see ospreys catching fish as dolphin swim up river? The large outside seating and dining area is a great asset. Eating lunch in the shade while northern cardinals sing from the trees is something we did not tire of.
Whether it's fishing from the private jetty, bird watching, kayaking through miles of lagoons (or in the gulf) or wild tortoise watching blue pearl delivers.
The property owner is also incredibly helpful. For example we were a family of 5 and although 3 kayaks were available to use Mary lou acquired another double so we could all go out together. Additionally she supplied fishing tackle for our use and would not accept payment for this.
In summary a wonderful place for naturalists who also like comfort with beach house chic
Bird watching, dolphin and manatee visits, great fishing off the dock, kayak and paddle board dream location. 3 minute stroll to the Gulf.
