My wife and I (both 5th generation Floridians) have been coming here since 1975. We just love the area and the unique nature of Little Gasparilla Island. Our daughter grew up here on family vacations and now our twin grandaughters are discovering all the wonders of LGI.

The location of this property and close proximity to the shore. The beach view is amazing! There is a level of protection with being the second home off of the beach.
The modern feel and up-to-date amenities are just what we were looking for. The spaciousness of the home and jack-n-jill bedroom/bathroom upstairs is a great set-up for siblings or two couples.
We are hoping that our daughter and her family will soon be able to move in full-time.
'Almost Heaven' could not be a better beach vacation home. With the beach only steps away and the docks only a short walk across the island, there is not much more you could ask for. The home is extremely spacious, well kept, and clean. Whether you are just looking for a quiet week at the beach or you are a fisherman looking to fish the great waters of Placida Sound, this house will suit all of your needs.
This home is perfectly located to a spectacular 7 mile white sand beach. Awesome shells! The views are spectacular and the sunsets from the amazing upper and lower decks took our breath away. We had a few windy and chilly days while we were here for 3 weeks, but the house is so wonderfully furnished from the DVD movies, fully equipped kitchen waiting to enjoy preparing a meal together or sit in many comfortable rooms and read. Lighting is excellent. Great outdoor shower and beach chairs. Excellent grocery and wine store very close by with a call to the water taxi or spend a day at nearby Boca Grande shopping or Venus with fabulous restaurants. If you like you can rent a golf cart just a few steps from the house to explore the Island but wasn't necessary.
This is my 5th year staying on Little Gasparilla Island, 2nd in this house. It's everything as advertised! This new home is very well equipped, large and spacious, and has a beautiful view, even if off the beach by one house. Everyone has their private bath and comfortable beds. The owners dropped by to check on things, but we had nothing to report; we were quite pleased with everything. Weather was not accommodating the first three days, but made up for it the rest of the week, full of sunshine! The family took the boat to Cabbage Key and Pelican Bay one day; ran up to unspoiled Manasota Key the next; and late afternoon margaritas and pina coldas on the beach. Almost Heaven is aptly named!
Recently stayed at Almost Heaven and fell in love with it! Such a beautiful home! I could hear the waves on the shoreline while in my bed. The awesome beach is so close...what a view!! The home has everything you need but food. Attention for comfort by the owners for their guest was seen throughout the home. It was not far from the dock to get to Almost Heaven. I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to get away and relax!!! So named appropriately!!
My stay on Little Gasparilla Island could not have been any better! The views from every room are spectacular. Just steps to the beach. The beautiful, modern kitchen had everything needed to make every meal perfect. Loved the open floor plan and the master suite on the main floor. The guest rooms shared a bathtub /shower, but had their own sink and toilet. Great for families or multiple couples. The main floor powder room and laundry were very convenient. Loved the wrap around deck; both floors! I highly recommend getting a golf cart to tour this lovely island; as well as being a convenient way to carry your belongings to and from the boat (it is not far, but I was in lazy vacation mode). The island chapel is not to be missed on Sunday morning. It is very convenient to take the water taxi to access great food and shopping if you can tear yourself away from the beautiful pristine beaches! The owners are fabulous; extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Almost Heaven and will, definitely, be back!

Little Gasparilla Island is a barrier island that is only accessible by boat. It reminds you of old Florida. I doesn't have the hustle and bustle of today's chaotic lifestyle. Remember, when you get to the island, kick back. You are on island time.
