About the property

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.

We enjoyed our stay at your condo. Very nice unit. Unfortunately there was a red tide happening during part of our stay so the beach was not as beautiful as I know it normally is (obviously there was nothing you could do about that). The unit was clean and we had everything we needed. We would absolutely rent this unit again.

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sea, Sand & Sunshine! This was the fourth time my family has been to LGI, but our first time staying at this location. We had everything we needed. The golf cart was a huge bonus for us as we were able to explore the island. We loved the outside living area below the house. We spent a lot of time relaxing in that area. The owner was great to work with. He was very helpful whenever we had questions. We look forward to returning!

Beautiful location on LGI and comfortable for family!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Awesome vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

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.
