Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Placida

This 3 bedroom 2 bathroom gem has recently been remodeled with a fresh coat of paint and tile throughout. With 1520 living sq feet and a total of 3276 sq feet, this spacious vacation home offers enough space to relax indoors or lounge on the wrap around porch. Between the house and beach is a vacant lot for an unspoiled view of the Gulf of Mexico. A brief walk and you are sinking your toes in the white sand with just a few more steps to wading in the crystal clear water.

Little Gasparilla Island is a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico that is only accessible by boat or water taxi. This serene spot offers approximately 7 miles of pristine natural shoreline, the perfect spot for rest and relaxation. LGI is residential and does not have any commercial businesses (i.e. restaurants or grocery stores) with the exception of golf cart rental/repair.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
  • smoking allowed

About Paris Cousins

My wife and I (both 5th generation Floridians) have been coming here since 1975. We just love the area and the unique nature of Little Gasparilla Island. Our daughter grew up here on family vacations and now our twin grandaughters are discovering all the wonders of LGI.

Paris Cousins purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Paris Cousins chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This is a wonderful location for beachcombing and catching up on your vacation novel. A brief walk and you are on the pristine white sandy beaches of Little Gasparilla Island.

Spacious screened-in porch surrounding three sides of the home. Open floor plan allowing company to enjoy each other from most rooms and still having the privacy of bedrooms.

What makes this cottage unique

An ocean view while doing the mundane of washing dishes seems like much less of a chore. The openess of this home with natural lighting from two sky-lights is peaceful and relaxing the moment you step inside.

One of the Best Houses on the Island!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six just got home from LGI yesterday and hated to leave Sandy Toes! It truly is one of the best houses to stay in on the island. We have stayed at many other places and it's location on the south end, with a lawn for the kids and dog to play on, so close to the beach access is ideal. The huge screened porch is a great place for family games and/or cocktail hour. The fact that inside the home there are many places to sit and eat is great for our large family...we are able to have a puzzle going at all times! The beds are comfortable, the rooms all offer lots of privacy and the outside shower is large and bright. John and Cindy are fantastic owners and take such great care of their home, as well as, the people who rent from them! They are very accommodating and are on island often in case you need anything. Thanks again, Tillis family! We had a great time!!

Very well kept

  • 5 of 5

My family and a family friends of ours stayed at the property and we had a great time. The house was well equipped and everyone was comfortable. The ocean is walking distance and when we were there, the beach was just fantastic! Our kids had lots of fun picking up shells and diving to find dollar shells!

The property of Sandy Toes

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Sandy Toes. The owner was extremely attentive to us and greeted us shortly after our arrival. When ever we had a problem he was right there to fix it. It was a very comfortable cottage. Vincent and Susan Kelley.

We loved staying at Sandy Toes.

  • 4 of 5

The living area was spacious and comfortable. House was clean and had plenty of towels and other linens.

Only one thing could make it perfect and that is a dishwasher. Otherwise it was great. We would definitely stay at Sandy Toes again.
