About Maria de la Nuez

My husband and I have been married for over 22 years and we have three wonderful boys. We grew up in Dade County Florida and when we got married we moved to Broward County Florida.

Maria de la Nuez purchased this condo in 2014

Why Maria de la Nuez chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I heard about Little Gasparilla Island after watching an episode on HGTV in May 2014. We booked a vacation and stayed here for week in August 2014. This place is so relaxing and everyone is so friendlly. My boys loved fishing, going to the beach and exploring the island on golf carts. We loved it so much we started looking for a place for us. In November 2014 we purchased our property which we consider a slice of heaven.

What makes this condo unique

My family loves this condo for several reasons. My husband and the boys love to fish. There are so many places on the island to fish. You can fish from the docks, beach on take a boat out to the ocean. I love the tranquility and piece of mind I feel here at LGI(Little Gasparilla Island). When the boys are not fishing, they are swimming or riding around the island on our golf car. The people in this island are so friendly. I love sitting on the beach just listening to the ocean waves or looking at the birds. I find I can truly relax here and disconnect from the hussle and bussle of living in a large city. When I want to go shopping (my favorite sport), I simply ride the ferry to the mainland and off I go. Once you experience Little Gasparilla Island, you will fall in love with it just as my husband and I did.

This "Little Dream House" is a reality!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has spent several vacations on Little Gasparilla Island. We have stayed at the Hideaway Bay condos four

times and this unit is definitely our favorite. As you enter the downstairs area, it is like an outdoor sitting room complete

with comfortable seating, flowers and a table for eating or playing games. Inside the unit, the furnishings are current, clean and

welcoming. The kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of room to put your grocery items. I really liked the way you painted the

cabinets and added nice hardware - with the new appliances, it made the kitchen look completely done over. The bedrooms were

well decorated with comfortable bedding and plenty of drawers for clothing and such. Maria's taste in all selections for the condo

were made with care and she has created a happy, island home. We are very lucky that her and Jorge choose to share it with

other families. Should we rent again, we would absolutely stay in F2!! Communication was prompt and clear. The golf cart was

a luxury model which drove great and felt safe. Beach accessories and outdoor cooking grills were put to good use. We did forget

charcoal, but were very lucky with friendly and helpful neighbors. They saved us a trip off island.

LGI offers all that you could wish for in an island vacation - that is, if you wish for beautiful, peaceful, nature filled memories...

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We reviewed several rentals at the Hideaway before we settled in this condo. It was the cleanest, well stocked, and reasonably priced unit with all new appliances. The entire family had a wonderful vacation. The golf cart would take your family easily from the condo to the boat, and beach. If you wanted to walk, everything was in a short distance. The owners was just a text away, and answered all our questions quickly. Actually, we have never had more wonderful owners to work with. The stay was top notch, and i would recommend this place to anyone. We will be back.

The property was very clean and had great decor. The owners were awesome to work with.

  • 5 of 5

The property was outstanding based on our previous experiences. Access to a golf cart was provided which makes it possible to view all of the island and explore different parts of the beach. Perfect location to the beach and pool. The owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Maria made sure all was ready for our stay and checked on us to make sure all was going well. Her prompt responses to make everything easy for us was greatly appreciated!

Best in the complex

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week stay in this comfortable, homey condo. It is well stocked and relaxing, and includes 3 super comfortable beds.

We stayed in the complex with another family that stayed in building C. While all the condos are basically the same, there is a definite difference in care and pride of ownership. You can tell Maria and her family love this little place and want their renters to relax and love it, too. Thank you for sharing your wonderful place.

All I can say is WOW! We really had the best week ever. The condo was perfectly decorated. Everything we needed was readily available and in great shape. From the golf cart to chairs to beach toys to kitchen accessories.... Maria was great to work with! We will definitely book this one again:) Can't wait to return.

So Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time! :) The condo is everything you see on the website and Maria is wonderful! Beautiful sunsets and we so enjoyed exploring the island on the golf cart. It's so easy just take the ferry over to the mainland, you've got to try Farlows for dinner or lunch. The food is fantastic! Also shopping is very close by. Thank you so much Maria we will be back hopefully in the fall and we can't thank you enough.
