  • Beach time sunrise to sunset!

    "What a wonderful vacation in such an amazing home. Beach time is great because you could always hang out in the shade of the house if it gets too hot. The Gulf is nice and calm most of the time, so you don't really need a pool to just chill out in the water. The house is stocked with all the kitchen necessities, plenty of towels, linens, pillows, games, crayons, binoculars, sand toys, floats, kiddie inflatable pool, bait net, etc. The house has cable TV with plenty of HD channels. Wifi and a golf cart was included which was nice for the times when we needed something to do. There is also the preserve close by. We went on a walk on the path through there a couple times which was nice. The only part of the vacation that was a bit stressful was the water taxi. The captains aren't very hospitable so just ignore their grouchiness when booking a pick up (make sure you schedule a week ahead of time). We had never had a vacation like this so packing was interesting, grocery shopping was tough and loading onto the water taxi could have been better coordinated. My advise to newbies... When the reviews say "pack light", that means don't pack anything you think the house won't have, because it will. We didn't need extra trash bags, towels or toys (for toddler) since there was plenty there. And we brought WAY too many clothes. There is a washer and dryer in the house so for the 8 days we literally did not wear anything more that 2 or 3 bathing suits, 1 pair of sandals, 2 sets of PJs, a couple of cover ups (or T's for the guys), a hat and that's it! Since we are now experienced with the water taxi, next time we will just do a better job of packing less and combining bags as much as possible for groceries. Overall, we had such a great time doing nothing all week. Thanks Sari and Glen!"

  • Wonderful!

    "Came here in March of 2016 with my two young children and husband. The condo was wonderful- it was super clean and had everything we needed- it was great that we did not need to bring towels, beach toys, etc... The location cannot be beat. The H building is close to the gulf so it was an easy walk down to the beach every morning. We loved looking for shells and playing in the sand and surf. My kids enjoyed the pool and swam there every day too. The beach was great- not crowded at all and we saw dolphins swimming off the shore almost everyday at sunrise or sunset. We also spotted a ton of lizards, birds (there was an osprey nest right near the condo building) and even a tortoise. So amazing! On the mainland there is a Publix nearby and a several restaurants within driving distance. We had a great dinner at the Stump Pass Grill which is a tiki bar at the Stump Pass Marina. It was wonderful to eat casual food outside and enjoy the weather. We would come here again in a heartbeat (and will definitely plan a return trip!). Orlando was great- he called to make sure we had everything and even helped us arrange for a ferry ride over to the mainland on the day we left when we needed to return before the condo ferry started running. Great place- we highly recommend it!!!!"

  • A Slice of Paradise

    "This is truly a hidden gem in a state full of beaches and summer fun. The cottage is situated in the perfect location, steps from the beach, about fifty steps to be exact... The dock is also a short walk which makes it convenient on check-in and check-out day. The amenities in the cottage are perfect for a family of four. Our kids quickly ranked the vacation top two of all time. We enjoyed the beach, water, sea life, wild life and the utter tranquility of the whole island experience. Laura is phenomenal and communication was flawless. Bret's services to and from the dock were timely and welcomed. Emmett's water taxi operates like clockwork and also appreciated. We made some great memories collecting shark's teeth, fishing and even boating!!! We look forward to making the visit an annual family tradition!!! Thanks you!!!"

  • Wish we could have stayed longer!!

    "This was our first time staying at LGI and our family of four (8yo & 4yo) loved every moment of it!! Tom was always very quick to respond when planning our visit and at one point during our stay when we needed to reach him. We chose the villa because it included the dock for our boat as well as a golf cart to explore the island. Even though the beach and the docks were within walking distance we all had so much fun on the golf cart. We went out on our boat fishing everyday and saw lots of dolphins, manatees, stingrays and even sharks. One afternoon while we were at the beach a manatee came right up to us and a group of people allowing us to pet it. It literally kept bumping into us and sticking its nose out to check us all out. Our kids will forever have this special memory! It was the coolest thing ever! The villa wasn't anything fancy but we weren't looking for fancy. It had everything we needed and there were even some spices and condiments left from previous guests which came in handy. We didn't really watch TV but there were several DVDs, there was also a nice selection of board games in the guest closet which we did use during the afternoon thunderstorms. If I had to think of anything negative I would say that the master bedroom mattress was too firm for me but that's just my personal preference. By the end of each day we were so worn out that it didn't really matter. We took this trip to get away from everyday stresses and just enjoy nature as a family and we did just that. We made so many family memories and already want to go back!!"
