About the property

2 bed, 2 bath condo, walk to the beach

Escape from the ordinary and enjoy your vacation on island time. Little Gasparilla island is approximately seven miles long and about a quarter mile wide, with most of it being a state park. There are only two condos on the island and the rest of the island is private residences. From our unit you can see the ocean and is a very short walk to the beach down a boardwalk. The beach is absolutely amazing. Most of the time it is you and a couple of other families on the beach. The shell collecting is unparalleled. You can find sharks teeth, sand dollars, horseshoe crabs and even fossils. The ocean is clear with shades of blue that remind you of the Keys and the Bahamas. The surf is small and you can float for hours on rafts.

You arrive by boat. Gone is the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Your main mode of transportation is the provided golf cart or your two feet. Pull carts are available for your luggage and groceries. Our unit has been upgraded to provide many nice amenities to the discriminating traveler. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, crock pot, waffle maker, sandwich press, coffee pot and Corian countertops. Enjoy unwinding on the balcony overlooking the lake with views of the ocean. There are plenty of golf cart paths for exploring the island. There is a large community grill and smoker, two fully stocked fish ponds, heated pool, and swings. Boat dockage is included in the price. There are two snook lights on the dock for nighttime fishing.

Quiet island life on the beach, Gulf-view getaway!
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Magical place!!

  • 5 of 5

What a little hidden piece of paradise!! No cars! No commercialism! Just a quiet place to sit back and enjoy the beauty of a tropical world. (It is hard to believe that you are just a 10 minute ferry ride from civilization and a Publix!) The condo is extremely comfortable and well maintained. And while we had carefully planned our off island food shopping in an effort to avoid returning to the mainland during our week of relaxation, it was a great relief to find things like olive oil, spices, and a few condiments in the frig! Obviously, we quickly felt at home. Can't wait to go back!!!
