About the Property

4 Bedroom Direct Gulf-Front Home

Sunset Beach house is a spacious and sunny four-bedroom home located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. It is has one of the most spacious gulf-front porches on the island, with both a large outdoor sunning porch, a covered porch for dining and a private porch upstairs. This home is perfect for extended family or a group of friends, with plenty of space to dine indoors or out, lots of sunning space for everyone and a casual, elegant style that is comfortable and family friendly. Please note that the porch is covered for protection from rain and sun, but currently is not screened.

You must notify us if you wish to bring or rent a boat. New regulations enacted by the state of Florida limit boats to 21 ft. at our dock.

The home is spacious and modern inside with an open kitchen, living and dining area, comfortable furnishings and a modern, well-equipped kitchen.

There are two queen bedrooms and a king size bedroom (with en suite bath) downstairs and a third queen upstairs in the "observatory" with some of the most spectacular views you will find on the island. The upstairs room does not have blinds so can be quite bright for those who like to sleep late in the mornings.


The home is well equipped with a large flat screen TV, complimentary wi-fi, all kitchen utensils, beach towels and beach chairs. We also include the services of our island concierge who will meet you at the dock and help transport luggage and groceries to the house for you. The home also offers a downstairs outdoor shower for rinsing off after coming from the beach. You have your own private boardwalk to the beach.

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.
• 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 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 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!
