There are dolphins, manatee, gopher turtles, blue heron and pelicans.

Our home has a King bed downstairs in the master bedroom and 2 queens in the second bedroom upstairs. All of our beds have comfortable memory foam toppers.

A golf cart is included to explore the sandy paths on the island. There are beach chairs, 2 single sit on top kayaks,1 double sit on top kayak, beach toys, beach umbrella and a handy beach cart.

Why Christine chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We have always wanted a vacation home. We stumbled upon Little Gasparilla Island on the internet and loved the concept of this barrier island with no cars. We fell in love the first time we visited the island. It truly is paradise. The sunsets are amazing. The beach is uncrowded and peaceful. It is the perfect place for us to gather as a family and decompress. Every time we leave the island our family bond is closer.

What makes this townhome unique

Second great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Christina's condo for a week in April 2016. This was our second stay the first was for a month. It was so wonderful not a lot of people and weather was beautiful. The condo has everything you need and is so comfortable it is easy to relax and enjoy yourself. We used the kayaks several days and had memorable trips each time seeing dolphins each trip.

Clean, well stocked with all things to enjoy beach life

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely time we had at Christine's condo! Loved the ease of getting to and from the island (we have stayed on the island quite a few times at other rentals and it was never so easy) and we really enjoyed the set up of the condo. We were able to leave the windows open and had a fabulous breeze. The master bedroom has the feature of an additional door which closes it off from the kitchen which was also really nice for privacy. Used the kayaks and golf cart to explore as well. Just can't say enough about what a great stay it was! Thank you Christine!!

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

Unit H 5 is a wonderful unit at Hideaway Bay on LGI. It is well furnished , clean and well supplied with things people might want or need. We were able to prepare all of our meals easily, had plenty of towels, etc. The extras included the bikes, kayaks (which we were never brave enough to use) and plenty of outdoor seating downstairs. The downstairs area was really nice with chairs, tables, etc. Will definitely try to rent this unit next time we come.

Awesome Owner @ She Sells Seashells

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay on LGI, the last three in She Sells Seashells. Christine is an awsome owner to rent from who is very conscientious in keeping everything in her lovely condo up to date and worry free. As seniors, we can't thank her enough for always taking such good care of us during our winter getaways. We hope to continue to rent from someone we have come to think of as a friend who allows us stay in her relaxing, attractive, beach view condo with many extras!!!
