About the property

Island Paradise On Little Gasparilla Island

If you have been dreaming about some time away from the day-to-day stress of life, this is the place for you! Leave your car on the mainland, take our ferry over to this beautiful private island getaway, get your toes in the sand & be prepared to relax. Famous for its shelling, you'll love exploring the 7 mile long beach as well as the quaint island. You won't find any distractions like shopping, as there are no stores on the island. You won't find any traffic, as there are only golf carts on the island. Once you experience this paradise, you will certainly want to return!

Beautiful resort and terrific vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Susan's property is in the building closest to the beach, which was awesome! We could view the beautiful sunsets each night from the family room. Upstairs has an even more beautiful view of the ocean. My kids loved the cool staircase! We couldn't believe the amount of shells and sand dollars on the beach - amazing! It really is like being on your own private island. We had a manatee swim right by us in the ocean - so neat! Back to the unit - we had plenty of room and it was very clean. The kids enjoyed all of the games that are there. There are also some beach toys, chairs, beach umbrella, canopy, boogie boards, and Webber grill to use as well! The ferry leaves on time from the island and gets to the mainland about 10-15 mins later. It was such a great getaway, that no one wanted to leave and we are already planning to be back next year!! Thanks for renting out your beautiful condo to us! We had one issue with the golf cart, but Susan was very quick to resolve it - thank you!!

Awesome and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Last week my husband and I stayed at Little Gasparilla Island. We absolutely loved the condo, which I would say was the best one we have ever stayed. The Gulf was in view from the upstairs bedroom and the waves could be heard easily. The kitchen was very well stocked with leftover items from previous visitors and Susan. The weather may have been a little cool, but that did not stop us from walking the seven mile beach and searching for shells, of which there were many, many, many. My husband started a shark's tooth collection upwards of 150. One day a stunt pilot was practicing tricks over the water. Everyone was so friendly there asking if we needed anything or had any questions. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the place to be! The real world is only a ferry boat ride away. One more thing - the pool was bath water warm, very inviting.

Amazing Family Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time everything we could have asked for in a rental! Susan's condo was very comfortable and clean, kitchen utensils and condiments were fully stocked we really felt right at home!! This was our first trip to Little Gasparilla Island and we absolutely loved it!! We were able to catch a glimpse of some Dolphins, saw a tortoise walking along the trail many birds I have no idea the name of, an endless amount of sea shells, ocean breezes and beautiful sunsets!! Can't wait to go back!!
