Just bring your swimsuit and flip flops and enjoy the oceanfront views from this beautiful 1 1/2 bath direct oceanfront beach cottage. Everything you need is already here! Cable TV in in each room, BBQ,(Propane) games, private dock, full kitchen with all cooking utensils, central air, trash compactor, microwave and water purification system . Stop and get your groceries and park your car at Eldridge Marina and take the water taxi to your semi private dock. From there just a few steps to Point Break Beach House. You will enjoy an almost private beach with all the shelling, snorkeling, nature walks, world class fishing and white sand beaches. 8 golf courses within 10 mins. Kayak rentals, canoe, and jet ski rentals near by. While Little Gasparilla Island is known for its seclusion, privacy, beautiful clean white sand beaches and fantastic shelling there are other activities. At the end of the day, kick back and relax, on the direct oceanview deck, enjoy a cold beverage and watch a one of a kind sunset
Perfect location on the gulf, we visited in late March 2017. The beach is sandy and perfect for swimming and snorkeling. We spent hours snorkeling for shells and sand dollars. This is a prime sunset location. The bedrooms, bathrooms and living area are beautiful. We ate all our meals on the covered patio table outside. The beach toys and boogie boards were used by the kids. I appreciated the umbrella and beach chair (could use one more). The grill was great for dinners and worked well. The cleaning lady stopped by once to check on our needs and bring some toilet paper, she was really nice.
Hauling luggage and our food in took two trips and was a little challenging after a long day. Next time I will use backpacks instead of our wheelie suits cases. We did not rent a golf cart, maybe next time. If you have a lot food and luggage a golf cart may be a good idea, or be prepared to make multiple trips. Pack lightly, you do not need much besides swimwear.
The house was clean and well provisioned. We had no bugs. I saw one mosquito the four days we were on the island. The weather was perfect, just bring a light sweatshirt for evenings. After dark, the kids watched movies on the provided DVDs. Thanks for having aloe gel on hand, my youngest removed her sun shirt one day and got pink before I realized it.
The water taxi was prompt and easy both directions. We bought groceries at the nearby Publix and asked for "boat bags" (they just put the paper bag inside of plastic to allow for easier carrying). You will be responsible for removing your trash (or pay a fee), but the trash compactor helps minimize volume and the marina accepts trash. We packed out with one trip. The walk to the dock takes less than 10 minutes.
We hope to be back soon.
Just as advertised. No cars, no restaurants, just a true getaway. The house is well appointed. Kitchen has all the pots, pans, silverware you need. TP and paper towels and linens are provided. All you need is clothes, and toiletries, and food. The beach is amazing! Fossilized shark teeth everywhere! Beautiful shells everywhere! Miles of soft sand to walk and you will rarely even cross paths with anyone. But, when you do meet people they are as friendly as can be.
I was nervous about parking at the marina, loading the water taxi with a week's worth of groceries for a family of five along with our luggage but it all worked perfectly. The captain helped us load/unload and picked us up a week later right on time. We rented a golf cart for the week. It was nice to explore the island but really came in handy hauling our belongings to/from the boat dock.
Overall, a great trip. Already planning our return!
Location of this house is perfection. Roll out of bed and onto the beach. It is a low key island, nothing to do but relax and enjoy the beauty of this island. The house is clean and comfortable, not fussy. Everything you need to cook a lovely week. We would love to come back again.
The only drawback to the vacation is that it ended too soon.
Danny and Liz stayed in contact with us to make sure everything was going well. And the caretaker, Janet, stopped by on the first night to make sure all was well.
Sunsets are to die for.
The community of LGI has so much to be proud of. We will gladly return!!
My wife and I had a great stay. We loved the house and had everything we needed. It was peaceful and we could hear the ocean from every room of the house. Found a ton of shells on the beach and saw amazing sunsets. We would love to stay again!
Overall we really enjoyed our stay. It is so quiet there and very little people on the beach which is just what we were looking for. Cute house right on the beach that met all of our needs. Did have a little issue with getting the door code on check-in day so had to stand outside waiting to hear back from property owners. Suggest pre-arranging that prior to check-in day. The owners were great with providing us information before our arrival that made getting supplies (groceries, etc.) and arranging transportation to/from the island. (They suggested a golf cart rental company- but we never heard back from that company. Other than the day of arrival when we were carrying all of our bags & groceries, we didn't feel like we needed a golf cart so it worked out okay.) There was one day with a water issue, but was able to get in touch with the owners quickly and they had had someone out in a very reasonable amount of time.
If you are looking for a place to get away, relax, and disconnect then this is a great place to do it. We enjoyed walking the beach and there are tons of sea shells. We could watch the wild life (pelicans, dolphins and occasional flying/jumping fish) from the patio with drink in hand. They accurately describe that there is nothing on island other than houses so be sure to bring everything (food, toiletries, etc.) you need when you come. Unless you have a boat or arrange/pay for multiple water taxi rides to leave island, there is nothing else to do other than enjoy the water and sandy beach. Which was just enough for us.
