We are close enough to walk to either the beach on the gulf (laden with shells) or the bay. You will delight in the nature of this island. This is what Florida used to look like in its natural habitat, and you will see osprey, turtles, dolphins, manatee, and maybe even an eagle! The levels may be rented individually for smaller parties. Long-term Winter rentals welcome! Inquire for special pricing!

Very good

  • 4 of 5

It was a good stay despite the bad weather on the first two days. The road to the house was flooded and it made it hard to have access to and from the house without golf carts. Other than that the only complaint I have towards the house itself is hat when the downstairs shower was being used, the upstairs one got very little to no water. Our experience overall was good.

Nice rental!

  • 4 of 5

Upper level rental was clean and nicely furnished with ample towels, kitchen supplies. A few suggestions to make it better would be:

Guest bedroom- needs to be emptied and provide hangers

Washing machine had an odor and gasket underneath had black mold

Beach chairs/umbrella rusty

Need welcome note, listing island activities, emergency numbers posted, posted rules of the rental,guest bathroom faucet loose, towels could be sorted for beach/ bathroom

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Twice as Nice on Little Gasparilla Island! We also appreciate your suggestions and will put efforts into correcting and providing the best for our guests. The Rental Package sent out prior to arrival lists all emergency numbers and check in/out information as well as specific rental rules for the property. The options for island activities is to rest, relax and enjoy the beach. As a private residential island there are rarely any activities planned with the exception of the 4th of July golf cart parade or island clean-up weekends. We hope that you will consider returning to Twice as Nice and LGI for your next island vacation.

For 3 couples & a single - SPACIOUS

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful living quarters but we had heavy rain and deep puddles right up to the front door. It was impossible to walk to the beach. We were saved because our daughter has a house on the island and has 3 golf carts, without them we would have been stuck in the house.

Owner's Response: We are happy that the home met your expectations and needs. Unfortunately, we can't control the weather and before and during your stay we did receive an exceptional amount of rain. It was recently decided to hire someone to bring in shell to help with the road conditions. After this, transversing the roads will be much easier and a lot less muddy. We hope that you choose to return to Twice as Nice for your next island vacation!

We are on a gorgeous island with no cars, stores or restaurants. Very quiet with lots of natural vegetation and a beach to die for. It is a short 5-10 minute water taxi ride from the mainland. Once on the mainland there are stores,restaurants, baseball stadium, golf courses, boat rentals all close by to choose from.
