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!

Wonderfully unique Florida vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had an absolutely wonderful vacation to LGI & Susan's beach condo. I highly recommend this vacation for those who would like a peaceful, beautiful setting with plenty to do in the untouched natural Florida setting. The accommodations were more than adequate for our family of four. We were very comfortable in the condo & had everything we could possibly need for our week on LGI. Bonus of the Hidaway Condos is the pool & use of golf carts - which were super fun for exploring the island. We walked the beach for hours hunting for sand dollars and sharks teeth. Reveled in the most gorgeous sunsets every night. Getting back over to the mainland was super easy with the boat shuttle that was included. Also a bonus was the secure parking for our rental car. We could easily explore the mainland when we felt like it but much preferred the tranquility of LGI. The Publix grocery store is close by and easy for groceries as well as many fun restaurants to try once back on the mainland. There was just something so magical about LGI and only using golf carts or our own 2 feet to get around!

Loved LGI...

  • 5 of 5

I loved it! If you want to get away from your busy life, this is the place for you. No cars, stores or restaurants but plenty of scenery and peacefulness and you're only a 5 minute ferry ride back to the mainland.

The Hideaway Bay cottage had almost everything you need. The only things you need to bring are shampoo, conditioner, soap and any food and drinks you may want. There is an ice machine by the pool. Just get the code from the manager. Your means of transportation to explore is your golf cart which is included in your stay. It was so much fun. Lots of laughs. Just to warn you, the second spacious bedroom and bath is upstairs with a spiral staircase for those of you how have problems with stairs. I believe all the units are the same.

The cottage was clean with plenty of beach, bath and hand towels for a family of 6. There's also salt, pepper, a few spices, sugar and dish soap. You should check the cupboards before you shop at the nearby Publix. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The beach is just across the road and full of sharks teeth and shells. Not as many different shells as Sanibel but the Sharks teeth made up for it. We found hundreds! If you feel like taking the ferry to the mainland to eat, a couple good places are the Lighthouse Grill at Stump Pass and the South Beach Bar and Grille on Boca Grande. Both are on the water and delicious.

We had a fabulous vacation with beautiful sunsets sitting on the beach or from the screened in porch. Thank you Susan!

I must first admit that when I booked the reservation, I didn't fully understand what I was getting in return. My first mistake was that I arrived at night in an unfamiliar area. But once I got my bearings and some instructions from my wife, everything went so smoothly!! The property is not fully described in the write-up. It's so much, much more. The house has two levels and everything that you could ever think you might want is already there. All you have to do is enjoy yourself. Susan has thought about everything and it's at your fingertips! As the days went by, I begin to think of Little Gasparilla as Gilligan's Island. The residents are super friendly and the area is a pristine beach covered with shells. I think the shelling here is better than Captiva or Sanibel. If you're planning on being in the area, this is the BESTEST PLACE!!!!

Our family of 5 loved our stay at LGI. The condo was clean and comfortable with an incredible sunset view. I was especially relieved how well they communicated with us prior to our stay with the uncertainty of our stay in relation to Hurricane Irma. Thank you for an incredible week at our favorite island! Can't wait to return!!
