About the property

Beach Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

'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 queen size bed; the second bedroom has two twins. There are ceiling fans in all rooms and lanais. Open kitchen is well equipped with microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and dishes/utensils. Other features include gas BBQ grill, all linens, washer & dryer, TV with satellite, DVD, radio/CD player. Supplied by city water system with drinkable tap water.

No Pets Please and No Smoking Inside!

Golf cart rentals available on the Island.

Just bring your food and other personal needs. We have all the comforts of home to make your vacation wonderful.

Activities: Enjoy fishing and collecting shells and sharks teeth along the beach.

'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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

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.

Great Place to get unplugged

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great - house is well positioned and appointed. Everything u need for a relaxing beach vacation is available in this rental - minus the good food and good company. The beach is awesome and you can walk for miles. One things to consider please make sure whatever u bring is easily transported through sand. The distance from dock to house isn't far but can be quite a work out.

Owner's Response: Hopefully you were able to use the large pull cart we provide at the cottage to help with your luggage and groceries. I've done that walk many times and (although less than a block), I know it can be tiring when you are just getting in from a long travel day and excited about beginning your vacation! Your proximity to the gulf waters make it worth it. There are a couple of options for checking in assistance on the "Area Info and Important #'s page", that may be a help if you have a lot of gear.

Paradise on LG

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our visit to LG. Patti was wonderful to work with and to chat with as well. Had forgotten some toiletries to bring no problem she came and dropped them off. Home was perfect and so close the beautiful swimming beach. Sunsets were gorgeous, had fun renting a golf cart and talking to our neighbors. O and of coarse relaxing.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise found was an amazing beach house! It was very clean, the air conditioning was excellent specially on the hot Florida summer! The beds were very comfortable (I would have prefer a bigger bed in the main room) and clean. It was great having a washer and dryer to do a few loads during our stay ;) my kids loved playing with the beach toys and boogie boards. Thank you so much for sharing your beach cottage with our little family, paradise found was the perfect house for us and we hope we come back next year!

Overdue long weekend get away!

  • 5 of 5

We love Little Gasparilla Island, and Patti's Paradise Found was perfect for our getaway. The house was easy to find and get to from the dock especially with Patti's thorough directions. The gulf view from the balcony off both bedrooms was stunning and the grille on the front balcony was perfect for family dinners. The house provided everything we needed for a great trip and recommend it.
