About the property

Island "Dream House"- Pet Friendly,Great Family Home, Golf Cart Voucher

Leave your car and your cares at the marina because Little Gasparilla is accessible only by water taxi! That means our beaches are uncrowded and tourists and traffic are just a mainland memory. If you are looking for a quiet tropical island to relax and unplug, Little Gasparilla is your dream vacation spot. Our "nightlife" consists of giant sea turtles laying their eggs -- our only bar is the sand bar where you can find sand dollars and shells!

This beautiful beach home is the perfect place to stay at this amazing island getaway! The open floor plan is filled with fun and cheerful decorations and comfortable furnishings. This 3 bedroom 2.5 bath, plus loft home can sleep 8-10 comfortably and has something fun for everyone. Features include Flat Screen Plasma TV with video game connection, Satellite TV with Movie Channels, DVD/VCR, Screened-in patio with Large Dining Table, Down Stairs Deck with Hammock, Porch Swing, Single Swing, Patio Furniture and Charcoal Grill, 2 Outside Showers with Hot and Cold Water, Horse Shoes and Surround Sound Speakers. All of this is surrounded by a beautiful white sand yard! The yard offers lots of privacy, yet the house is just a short walk to the beach.

The kitchen is spacious and modern with stainless appliances. This large, family-friendly home is perfect for an extended family vacation or holiday get-together! (Please note that the upstairs loft area is open to the downstairs so the twin beds do not offer a lot of privacy.)

Your rental also includes the services of our island concierge who can meet you at the dock and help transport luggage and groceries to the house for you.

Please note we have age restrictions for rental of this home and we do not rent to college students during Spring Break. Your pets are welcome with a $100 non-refundable pet fee as long as they are current on all vaccinations and house broken.

This home also provides a $100 golf cart voucher toward the rental of a golf cart from LGI Carts to explore the island during your stay. You use this certificate just like cash and the renter is still responsible for any additional rental fees, security deposit and any damage fees. The voucher cannot be redeemed for cash should the guest elect not to rent a golf cart or if LGI carts has no availability. Please make golf cart reservations early!

The house was very accommodating- - we had 6 adults & 4 kids & everyone had a bed!

  • 5 of 5

The house is located between the dock and the beach, sort of tucked away in its own little area! The golf cart was very helpful in getting us around the island.(we also rented a golf cart for the weekend , as well) The concierge met us and helped us take our stuff to the house! It was a wonderful weekend & we enjoyed every aspect the house had to offer! Highly recommend it!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on the island now about 8 times over the last 6 yrs and found this to be one of the nicest houses we have stayed in. We had 3 families and had plenty of room. The downstairs was a wonderful bonus area with the outdoor shower and outdoor seating. This was perfectly situated between beach and boat. The lot was spacious and very private. Great stay!

Spacious and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Dream House was a great location for a week long family beach vacation. The kitchen is well equipped, and there are lots of bathrooms and even 2 outdoor showers. we found tons of fossilized sharks teeth while walking the gulf shoreline. A nice and natural setting. Tons of dolphins and manatees in the area.

Great place to get away from your busy life.

  • 4 of 5

Was a great stay for 2 adult and 5 kids. The island doesnt have many people so you get to see great oceanlife. We saw dolphins everyday and had access tons and tons of shells.

Make sure you bring all the food and such you are going to need. Like everyone else said, only way to get there if by boat. There is a water taxi that is 10.00 a person each way to the mainland. But if you are looking to get away from everything, this is a great place to do it. There is tv but no internet. Maybe they could look into Hughes net (Satalite internet.) The golf cart worked. Walk to the beach takes just a minute. The family feels closer together since being there. It is a great place to get back to what matters in life.

Only complaint I have are the beds. Needs some new mattresses. I understand though it would be an ordeal to get them there. Other than that bring an umbrella for the beach. If there is one at the house, I couldn't find it. But again, great place to stay.

Perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of 6 adults. We even hosted a catered dinner for 16 at our house on the lower deck area. The house was close to the dock and the beach and was well-stocked for our stay. The property management group was very easy to work with, too. I highly recommend a lot of bug spray as the mosquitoes are terrible. We would definitely stay again.
