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!

Fun on Little Gasparilla Island
Great time at Hideaway Bay Beach Club. Property was great, no problems and the owner was very responsive. We will be back. Love the island.
Looking forward to having you back! THanks for the kind review.
It was a lovely place,felt like heaven.Would love to come back again.
If you are looking for a peaceful time away from all the hustle bustle,this place is for you.
Our host was awesome,the entire checkin and checkout process was pretty smooth and we did not face any difficulties during our stay.
Thank you Susan.
Thank YOU! So happy you enjoyed your time there ringing in the new year! Thank you for taking the time to post a review.
A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE!!!
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!!!!
Thank you very much for your kind words, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Please come back again soon!
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!!
Can't wait for you to enjoy the island again, come back soon!
Thanks for the review,
Another successful Family Vacation!
We had a wonderful time at the rental. Our favorite thing was exploring the island on the golf cart. Each day we would look for a new spot on the beach. The rental was more than comfortable for a family of four. The own is readily available for any questions and was very nice when we lost the rental key. I would recommend a stay to anyone. FYI keeping a car rental is pointless, better off getting an uber or taxi for grocery trips, buy everything you may or may not need and stay on the island. Between shelling, shark teeth hunting, swimming, golf cart cruising and mid day naps you won't be bored.
Thanks, Helene for the review, we appreciate all the kind words. Come back soon!
