'Paradise Found'

'Like New' beautifully decorated STILT home on a private, bridgeless island just a few yards from 7 miles of secluded, unspoiled beaches. Enjoy beautiful views of the gulf and sunsets from two screened lanais .

Sounds of the surfs are endless, yet serene, as you nap or are in for a good nights sleep. It is the paradise you’ve been looking for. The fun and sun - whether you are enjoying the beautiful beaches or some of the best Snook and Tarpon fishing in Florida. Great shelling -Sanibel without the crowds!

Little Gasparilla Island has no roads, only winding sand paths to be explored by foot or golf cart. It is accessible only by boat and just a few minutes from the mainland.

So, come enjoy this beautiful paradise getaway.

Amenities: Accommodations for four adults or two adults and three small children. First bedroom has a full size bed; the second bedroom has two twins. There are ceiling fans in all rooms and lanais.

'Ghostcrabs' can be seen scurrying along the beaches and loggerhead turtles come up from the gulf during nesting season to lay their eggs. Pelicans and dolphins are abundant in the gulf and bay and you can frequently see manatees in the bay.

Shopping, golf and many fine restaurants are close by on the mainland.

About Patti Workman

I find nothing more relaxing than being near the water, and my home and vacation cottages are all just steps away. Just retired after 31 years in education, I am looking forward to more time in 'Paradise'!

Patti Workman purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Patti Workman chose Placida

About ten years ago we heard of a 'Little Island' that was accessible only by boat. After a little research we found it, made a trip down from NJ and purchased our cottage the next day. We have loved every minute we spend on the Island and enjoy sharing our vacation paradise with others. Many repeat guests are creating family traditions at 'Miss Patti's' cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sitting down and trying to get back in touch with real life after a great week in your quiet corner o the world. Just what we had in mind and made great by your careful, clear instructions and your attention to providing for every day-to-day need at the house. The house was spotless when we got there and everything from the grill to a flashlight (which I forgot) worked, no small thing to produce from a distance.

Thank you. We loved it.

'Paradise Found' very appropriate name for the house and Island! We love it here!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Gasparilla Island.! We loved the quiet and peacefulness of the island. The people we met were friendly and informative. This is the perfect place to get away from the crowds and distractions. Excellent location, Just steps away from the beach. The house is well equipped, modern, clean and comfortable. We will definitely be staying here again on our next visit.

What an amazing adventure

  • 5 of 5

Little Gasparilla and Paradise Found is just that; Paradise Found. What a beautiful island with amazing scenery, friendly people and seclusion for anyone just wanting to get away, relax, fish, swim, just lounge on the beach or search the shoreline for tons of shells and sharks teeth. I’ve never experienced anything quite like this place. The beaches are prestigious and the island is lush with vegetation. Paradise Found is only steps from the beach and you can even hear the waves from the patios. It’s a very cozy cottage with the luxuries of home away from home.
