About Bill Prewitt

We are a family that has been coming to Little Gasparilla Island for 20 plus years. We fell in love upon the first visit. We always dreamed of owning a house here. That dream has now come true, and we would love to share our slice of heaven with you.

An amazing home for enjoying island life!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at "Surf's Up" Thanksgiving week of 2016. We have stayed on LGI for 3 Thanksgivings, but this was our first spent at this property. We loved this house and it's location. The view from the porch is amazing and the house's location made it so easy to get to the beach for sunset. Will stay beachfront from now on!

The home was very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the paddleboards and appreciated having them there for our use. We were looking forward to having 4 bikes to use, but found 2 adult bikes and one kids bike. They were not in working condition, but the owners said they would attend to the bikes for future renters.

The owners were always available by phone or text when we had any questions. They were easy to communicate with leading up to, during, and after the trip.

We hope to enjoy this property again.

An Amazing Home with a Breathtaking View

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Surfs Up with 7 friends from 8/12/2016-8/19/2016 and we could not be more pleased with our stay. The house was very well maintained and very clean. Even with 8 people in the home, there was plenty of room for everyone. The homeowners supply renters with a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of towels, and other appliances for renters to use. They even supply the renter with items like paddle boards and bikes to make a stay on the island even more enjoyable. The view from the screened-in porch is immaculate, as you are only footsteps away from the Gulf. I was very pleased with every aspect of my stay here, and can honestly say I have nothing negative to say about my stay or the home. I would absolutely recommend Surfs Up to anyone visiting the island.

Great Family Fun

  • 4 of 5

My family and friends really enjoyed our stay. The views of the sunsets were amazing. We love the fact they had 2 paddle boards, the kids couldn't get enough of it. We paddled out to the sandbar and the kids snorkeled.The kitchen was fully stocked with kitchen equipment, and the grill made cooking easy. All and all, a lovely vacation.

Love being right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We loved to be able to sit out on the screened porch. Also, the beach chairs were very nice to be able to take down to the beach. There could have been a few more beach toys for the kids. What was there was basically broken and worn out. But we went and bought a little pack at the store and a couple shovels that the kids played with and left for future guests. Our oldest thoroughly enjoyed the fishing poles! The grill was great! The dishwasher was not working properly when we were there, and this was disappointing. The bed was nice that it is a king, but a little hard. Nice to have the dvd player for the rainy days. Overall we would definitely return!

Adorable Beachfront Cottage with Incredible Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Surf's Up and found it to be a wonderful place. It is delightfully decorated and the owners obviously take great pride in their house. The kitchen, living and dining area is perfect for family gatherings and all look out through a screened lanai to a pristine beach and gorgeous ocean. The property is directly beachfront.The sleeping accommodations are very nice for a large group and the house is well-stocked with linens and kitchen equipment. In summary this is a lovely property and I would highly recommend it for a stay on Little Gasparilla Island.

Nothing like drinking that first cup of Coffee, with the feel of the ocean breeze on your face. Then take a few steps to the beach, in search of Millions of year old, Sharks Teeth.
