About Maria de la Nuez

My husband and I have been married for over 22 years and we have three wonderful boys. We grew up in Dade County Florida and when we got married we moved to Broward County Florida.

Maria de la Nuez purchased this condo in 2014

Why Maria de la Nuez chose Florida South West

I heard about Little Gasparilla Island after watching an episode on HGTV in May 2014. We booked a vacation and stayed here for week in August 2014. This place is so relaxing and everyone is so friendlly. My boys loved fishing, going to the beach and exploring the island on golf carts. We loved it so much we started looking for a place for us. In November 2014 we purchased our property which we consider a slice of heaven.

What makes this condo unique

My family loves this condo for several reasons. My husband and the boys love to fish. There are so many places on the island to fish. You can fish from the docks, beach on take a boat out to the ocean. I love the tranquility and piece of mind I feel here at LGI(Little Gasparilla Island). When the boys are not fishing, they are swimming or riding around the island on our golf car. The people in this island are so friendly. I love sitting on the beach just listening to the ocean waves or looking at the birds. I find I can truly relax here and disconnect from the hussle and bussle of living in a large city. When I want to go shopping (my favorite sport), I simply ride the ferry to the mainland and off I go. Once you experience Little Gasparilla Island, you will fall in love with it just as my husband and I did.

Great trip!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks and enjoyed every day of it. The condo was very clean, the kitchen had everything you need, and beds are extremely comfortable. The golf cart made it easy to get your stuff to the boat, go to the beach which is only a couple hundred yards away, or explore the island. We fished almost every day and the ice machine at the club house always had ice in it even over the holiday weekend. The boat slips are very nice and also have water and electricity. A big plus for boaters! We plan on making it our annual summer trip!

Paradise on LGI!

  • 5 of 5

Maria and Jorge's condo is spectacular!! They provide all the amenities to make their guests feel at home.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need: a blender, slow cooker, hand mixer, coffee maker, well appointed pans, cookware, and even storage containers.

We used the charcoal grill every night.

We loved sitting on the lanai every morning for breakfast and sitting at the downstairs patio for dinner.

The outdoor shower was great after daily kayaking and beach time. Our daughter absolutely loved snorkeling and collected more sand dollars and seashells than we could take home.

We loved the beach/nautical decor in the condo, beautiful and welcoming.

The condo was clean and very well maintained.

Thank you for use of the golf cart! So fun to explore LGI via the golf cart.

Maria was prompt and helpful with all of our questions.

We loved LGI and are planning our return. Thank you so much Maria and Jorge for your hospitality!

We loved our experience on LGI and in this beautifully decorated and well kept condo.

  • 5 of 5

My family cannot stop talking about our time on Little Gasparilla Island. What a beautiful island, perfect for a family who is looking for quality time together. The opportunity for exploration on the beaches and golf cart trails kept my young boys and husband busy for hours. We will be back next year ready to make more wonderful memories. Our only regret is that it will not be in this beautifully decorated and clean condo. It has already been booked for next year. The condo had everything we needed for a stress free vacation and more. We appreciated the owners, who were so very helpful and answered every question we had. You can tell how much they love their place and want to make sure everyone shares that experience when they are on the island. My family would highly recommend this condo to anyone interested in a relaxing, stress free vacation!
