Recent Little Gasparilla Island reviews

  • Great Start to 2017!!

    "Having always stayed at our family home on the LGI I was a little nervous to rent. Our family home was overbooked for the holiday weekend so we needed extra space. The Rutherford's condo was just as described and then some. Plenty of room with the comforts of home--clean, tastefully decorated, overall a great place to relax. I didn't realize how convenient the included secure parking (on the mainland), ferry ride to/from the island, golf cart, and heated pool would be --but they really did make the trip that much better! Kim was easy to work with, helpful and responsive. My favorite part was morning coffee on the screened in porch overlooking the "pond"; It was my private time before starting each day with family. Having the golf cart made traveling to our family home, the beach and around the island to explore-- lots of fun. Hoping to make this place part of our regular visits to LGI --our own private paradise. Thanks for everything :)"

  • Perfect Escape

    "The place is even better than the pictures! Rebecca met us when we got off the boat, led us along the amazing boardwalks, and even helped us unload our groceries before showing us around. The Beach Cottage is open and airy, light and beautiful. The sound of the surf lulls you to sleep. There is always a breeze, but if you get too hot, there are plenty of spots to escape to shade while still being in the open air. It's a perfect place to lie back and smile and realize what is truly important in life."

  • Relaxation at its best

    "Always a great time at dock envy! Prime location, big clean house stocked with everything you need for a beach location. The dock is great for night time fishing, and easy access to eldreds and other surrounding marinas/ locations. Very close to the pass, so getting out into the gulf is a piece of cake ! Paris makes the process stress free from start to finish! This was not our first time there and I hope it won't be our last ! There's nothing like a week on LGI!!!!"

  • Perfect Beach Cottage On Absolutely Beautiful LGI

    "This was my wife and I first vacation to Florida together,and boy did my wife do her research in picking out the absolute perfect paradise to stay in! Only being married for a couple years,Randy's "Long Haul" cottage was perfect as far as the financial aspect of it.From what I gather,the way he runs things at the cottage allows people like my wife and I to experience a vacation like no other that we wouldn't otherwise be able to afford.Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Randy,but from our email and phone conversations he seems like a great guy who wants everyone to be able to experience this gorgeous island. Sorry for rambling on....The cottage was perfect for all our needs,it is more than equipped with enough utensils ect to cook and get done with whatever you may need to..The great thing is,is that it is encouraged to leave behind things that obviously you not need to take back home with you ( a bottle of ketchup,mustard ect) so that the next visitors can possibly use these ( and other) items if they choose to. As far as room in the cottage,there is MORE than enough room for all your needs and the master bed,in our opinion was very comfortable.We didn't have visitors ( or kids,yet) to judge the other bed.The bathroom was just fine and had both a shower/tub combo.Also,even though the a/c were the type that fit in the windows,they were very cold which is a plus when you're down in South Fla.The screened in porch outside on the deck made for a nice place to eat at night and or just relax in the evening to feel the nice Gulf breezes... Speaking of the Gulf,I just wanted to point out that when the water taxi drops you off at your dock,its literally a 5 min or less walk to the cottage.You're gonna want someone to run up to the cottage to grab the big white barrel so they can wheel it back to the dock,load your grocery's, luggage ect and then use it to get everything to the cottage. This barrel ( or cart?) Has two wheels,so its very easy to roll it even with all your belongings ( you'll see what I mean) The Cottage is in such a great location,being only approx 5 mins to the docks ( water taxi) Tip: if you go down by the dock and hang out for a bit,you're literally guaranteed to see dolphins swimming in the harbor there! We waited 15 mins for the water taxi and saw about 4 or 5 dolphins! And just to end this- The Gulf Of Mexico! 5 min walk in the opposite direction. Just GO!EVERYDAY! The water is crystal clear,warm and so calm.Its Heaven. I💜LGI"
