Simply Adrift is a darling 2 bed/1bath classic Florida bungalow that has been completely renovated and redecorated inside and out! It is a mere 450 foot walk to the beach and 450 foot walk to the bay. Great care has been used in selecting the furnishings and colors to give it the ultimate Beach Cottage feel. A 25x10 screened in porch has been added with a lounge area and outdoor dining, giving an oasis for relaxing and hanging out. The kitchen has new appliances and a stainless steel island, with one of the best equipped kitchens on the island. A bright, open living area with beamed ceilings and French doors leading to the screened porch make the property feel larger than it is. Both bedrooms have Queen sized memory foam mattresses, luxury sheets and bedding, plenty of closet space, and windows that floods in the natural light. The screened porch stairs are connected to the lower outside deck, shaded by a magnificent Strangler Fig tree. The back stairs off the porch lead to a new, discrete outdoor shower. Additional amenities include a charcoal grill, beach chairs and umbrella, washer/dryer and a shed with an extra refrigerator/freezer.
Little Gasparilla Island is one of the last "Old Florida" treasures left in all of Florida. It is a BRIDGELESS barrier island with just a few hundred homes, no commercial development, no paved roads or cars, and 7 miles of pristine beaches. It is the perfect location to escape the "rat race" of everyday life, whether you enjoy fishing, Eco-sight seeing, or just laying on the beach. Sand paths meander throughout the island and are great to explore on foot or via a golf cart which we will provide upon request. Boats can be rented at many of the local marina's. There is a community dock at the end of Bay Street where you can park your boat or go fishing. In order to get to the island, simply park at Eldred's Marina but call ahead to schedule the 8 minute boat ride across the bay in Pirate's Water Taxi. Whether you're a couple seeking a romantic getaway, fishermen, bird/wildlife watcher, boater, artist, or just a beach lover, this is the perfect spot for you!
