About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This quaint 3/2, 1100 sq ft island home has everything you need to disconnect from the craziness of the world and enjoy the island life! We've recently installed a metal roof, a/c unit, flooring, counters and furniture! You will have access to the golf cart and kayaks, for those that want to cruise the island or go float the water looking for snook or redfish. The Antigua Hut is located off dock 26, approximately 75 yds from the dock and 75 yds from the beach.

For those unfamiliar with Little Gasparilla Island, it is only accessible by boat. There is a water taxi that runs out of Eldred's Marina; Pirates Water Taxi. You will have to inform them you are going to dock #26. (941) 697-5777 If you have your own boat, you can dock up to #26 at no charge.

About Sam Marsonek

Hi, my name is Sam Marsonek. The Antigua Hut has been in my family for over 30 years. Many fond memories have been shared on LGI by all of our family. My wife and I just bought the house in July, 2015 to ensure our 3 daughters would be able to grow up down there as well. We currently reside in Tampa.

Sam Marsonek purchased this bungalow in 2015

Beautiful island

  • 3 of 5

The island was perfect for our family. A little more disclosure on the details of travel would have been helpful. We didn't know that the water taxi only runs during daylight hours (starts an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset). If you want taxi service other times, then you have to book a week or two ahead of time, and it will cost you double the price. Our flights did not fit into the water taxi's schedule. Also, you have to pay for parking and garbage disposal at the Marina where you can use the water taxi. The lock box code was emailed to us, but the e-mail information was incorrect and we had to call the management company.

Other than those logistical obstacles, we had a wonderful time! The cottage itself was exactly what you paid for.

This place needs serious work and updating. There is serious electrical problems. The wifi is almost non existant. Which was very unhandy for keeping up with work. The showers drain onto the ground and the whole place reeks of sewer gas. I gave it two stars just because the island itself was beautiful. The owner and property manager were contacted several times with no response. The golf cart does not function the kayaks are so nasty there is no one that would want to use them. Stay away.

We normally don't write bad reviews....

Little Gasparilla Island was great, the local residents and other tourists on the island were very friendly. However we cannot comment on our accommodations, per written request by the owner asked that nothing be posted on social media. I can just say we left a long note regarding our stay to the manager and she will hopefully forward that to the owner. We would love to come back, but stay else where.

Cute house close to gorgeous beaches

  • 5 of 5

I love this house and island. It’s so cute and clean, and the location is ideal. The AC works great, and the kayaks were fun! We had a blast and grilled out twice. My 8 year old loves the freedom of being able to walk to the little library alone, and being able to explore without the worry of cars on the island. The shells on the beach are also amazing! The owners are super nice, helpful, and responsive. I will definitely go back again soon!
