Sea, Sand & Sunshine!! Total Relaxation! 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath close to the Beach
If you are looking for the ideal Getaway on a Barrier Island look no further. There are no paved roads on the island only miles of sandy trails flanked by tropical foliage. Our condo is located at Hideaway Bay Beach Club on Little Gasparilla Island, a seven mile, white sand, bridge less barrier island. Guests will park their vehicle in a secured lot and board the FREE condo ferry for a five minute ride to our island retreat. This piece of paradise provides a time for families and friends to reconnect as they enjoy the seclusion of this island getaway. The bay side provides free boat slips and a dock for fishing. An in-ground pool and community barbecue grill and smoker are also located there. The screened lanai & upstairs loft provides a view of the gulf. And the ocean waves are just a quick walk away.
This furnished condo features 'beachy' decor, comfortable luxury bedding, 2 full baths, washer and dryer, and a well furnished, full-sized kitchen. The unit sleeps up to six: one king master and two queen beds in the loft. Both WIFI and satellite TV are provided. Various beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, umbrella and a grill are located in the storage garage below our unit. A golf cart is also available with the rental. Two kayaks are available with the condo. Because there are no stores on the island, guests need to bring in groceries with them- transported via carts provided. However, wonderful restaurants and activities are within a short driving distance with a quick ferry ride back across the bay on the mainland.
Enjoy time exploring the island by foot or by golf cart over the white sand paths. Various local landmarks include the island chapel, library, and Don Pedro Island State Park. With no roads or traffic, this very special island surrounds you with incredible nature, the way Florida used to be. Amazing shells, sand dollars, and shark teeth bring new surprises as you stroll on the beach. Enjoy morning coffee watching the huge variety of birds, dolphins and manatees swim by or relax with evening sunsets filled with glorious colors over the ocean waves.
The facilities offer a free private Ferry for transportation to and from the island, a free guest boat slip, a heated pool, children swings in the play area close to the large picnic area.

Why Craig Grant chose Placida
Why the Owners Chose Little Gasparilla Island: We have always wanted a vacation home. We stumbled upon Little Gasparilla Island while on vacation-looking for relaxation,and loved the concept of this barrier island with no cars. We fell in love the first time we visited the island. It truly is paradise. The sunsets are amazing. The beach is uncrowded and peaceful. It is the perfect place for us to gather as a family and decompress. Every time we leave the island our family bond is closer.

Beautiful location on LGI and comfortable for family!
Little Gasparilla Island has become our family’s tropical vacation paradise location, and Craig’s comfortable condo guaranteed a special Christmas week get away! The ferry schedule, free mainland parking, heated pool, and easy beach access made living on the island very convenient. The Hideaway Bay Beach Club community is very friendly and welcoming. The condo had a well equipped kitchen (including a crock pot!), plenty of towels, and comfortable beds and linen. Having paper goods and laundry supplies available is an asset. Craig is a superb communicator throughout the whole process. Can’t wait to get back to LGI!!!
Best Vacation EVER!!
My husband and I just left HBBC J-4 and are already planning our return. The island is true paradise! We met Craig at the ferry entrance, who happened to be on the way to an owner’s meeting. He helped us load our belongings onto the boat and took my husband to the condo to get the golf cart to retrieve our things. He also gave us a quick tour of the condo. Craig knew this trip was a 25th anniversary celebration. Upon arrival, we discovered Craig had left a bottle of wine in the fridge with a note wishing us a Happy Anniversary. It was such a sweet gesture! The Condo is beautifully decorated and is in close proximity to the beach! Everything we needed to relax and cook all our meals was in the condo. We enjoyed the outside space downstairs a great deal!! We absolutely loved the beach on LGI!! Everyone we met was super friendly. This place is a rare gem! Can’t wait to go back and will most definitely rent this unit again.
My family and I vacationed in mid August and could not be happier. The condo was very comfortable and well taken care of. It was well equipped with supplies for the beach, we swam in the gulf almost everyday. Big thanks to Craig and his family for renting to us and we would definitely do it again.
We loved it! The house had everything we needed plus more!
Little Gasparilla is true paradise. This condo makes it even easier to rest, travel back and forth to the mainland, and enjoy the landscape with the golf cart. The condo is updated with beautiful decor also! One of a kind!
This place was amazing. The owner, Craig, was helpful in every way. The condo is exactly what you see in the pictures. Beautifully decorated and very clean. We will be back again.
Vacation on Island Time
Our stay at this property was everything we had hoped for. The pictures depicting the condo and the island are very accurate. The condo has everything one needs to enjoy a week on the beach. We used the golf cart, kayaks, inflatable tubes, and beach chairs almost every day. We also loved that the view faces the water, and the walk to the beach is only two minutes long. Craig was very easy to work with and he provided all the information we needed to both plan and enjoy our week on the island. We had looked at houses on the island, but a big bonus for us with this condo was the free ferry and protected parking area for our vehicle. If you are looking to unplug, relax, and for a beach that feels like you have to yourself, you will love this place: our family of four certainly did. My kids are already asking if we can go back.
