Property description

RoseMary's BeachHouse is truly a gem. This delightful beach cottage has been totally renovated and redecorated with an eye for detail. From the granite countertops to the elegant, upscale tropical furnishings, this home has been meticulously and lavishly appointed. The open plan living and dining area offers views of the Gulf from EVERY window and the kitchen is a dream! The home is fully equipped with everything you need for your beach vacation including wi-fi, a washer and dryer, dishwasher, trash compactor, brand new Weber electric grill (no lugging charcoal to the island!) and state-of-the art GE Advantium Microwave-Convection oven. (please note there is not a conventional oven.) You need only bring your bathing suit and groceries! The master bedroom offers views of the Gulf, and stained glass doors for added privacy. The second bedroom is tucked away in the back of the house for peace and serenity. This home has not been rented in the past....the owners designed it for their own personal taste and comfort. For that reason, it does not represent the typical beach rental property....it is truly an elegant beachfront home, not a 'rental unit'. it provides the perfect spot for a romantic getaway, for a small family or two couples. Maximum occupancy is 4 guests.

Downstairs, lush tropical foliage surrounds the house and a ground-level deck allows you to sit in the shade, watch your children on the beach and still be just steps from the house.

The beach, however, is everyone's main focus and it is superb...clean and pristine, rarely crowded, teeming with dolphins, shore birds, sea turtles and the occasional manatee. You can fish off the dock -- or off the beach right in front of the house. Beach chairs are provided for your comfort and your rental also includes use of a dock slip if you choose to rent a boat. Ask us about kayak rentals, golf cart rentals and stand up paddle boards...we can help you arrange the most active vacation -- or you can simply relax on the beach and do nothing. Your rental also includes the services of our island concierge who will meet you at the dock and help transport luggage and groceries to the house for you.

RoseMary's Beach House combines both elegance and luxury with the rustic charm of a tropical beach vacation...sure to be a spot you will want to return to again and again!

LITTLE GASPARILLA FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...PLEASE READ!
• You cannot drive your car to the island and the only access is via water taxi; there is no vehicle ferry.
• You must park your car at the marina at the mainland but it will be perfectly safe there; parking is $6 a day.
• The water taxi is $10 per person each way and he will drop you right at our dock
• All homes come with a grill. This home has an electric grill so no charcoal is needed.
• All homes come with beach chairs and an umbrella.
• You must bring all groceries to the island with you.
• There are no stores of any kind on the island, not even a convenience store.
• There is no need to bring drinking water; the water from the tap is safe and drinkable.
• There are first responders on the island and we have 911 service in case of an emergency.
• Golf carts are not necessary; the island is only 100-200 yards wide in most places and our concierge will meet you upon arrival to bring you to the house. But they are fun to go exploring.
• You can fish off the dock or the beach but non-Florida residents will need to purchase a fishing license.
• The beach is dog-friendly but dogs must be under your control, non-aggressive and most homes charge a pet fee
• This house has wi-fi but this is NOT the internet you are used to on the mainland. There is no unlimited data and wi-fi is NOT for entertainment. No Netflix, no skyping, no streaming music, no downloading videos, etc. Many people find the mobile hotspots on their smartphones are better alternatives.

Little Gasparilla.com LLC

About: We have lived on the island for 30 years and we started renting our own home many years ago when we traveled. Then our neighbors asked us to handle rentals for them also -- and now we offer vacation rentals through our small family business Little Gasparilla Vacation Rentals. We offer cottages in a variety of price ranges and locations on the island...from striking beachfront homes to cozy interior homes with lots of privacy. Our homes are painstakingly cared for, we try to keep them well-stocked, and we try to give each of our homes a very personal touch...we want you to feel like you are vacationing in a friend's home rather than a sterile "rental unit". We love the island and want you to have the best experience possible so you will love it as much as we do. So relax, kick off your flip flops, dig your toes in the sand and enjoy the island lifestyle!
