About the property

Two Bedroom. Two Bath. Gulfview.

Our SeaSalt condo is located at Hideaway Bay Beach Club on Little Gasparilla Island, a seven mile, white sand, bridgeless barrier island. Guests will park their vehicle in a secured lot and board the free condo ferry for a five minute ride to our island retreat. This piece of paradise provides a time for families and friends to reconnect as they enjoy the seclusion of this island getaway. The bayside provides boat slips and a dock for fishing. An inground pool and community barbeque grill and smoker are also located there. The screened lanai provides a view of the gulf over the boardwalk and sea oats. And the ocean waves are just a quick walk away.

This furnished condo features 'beachy' decor, comfortable luxury bedding, 2 full baths, washer and dryer, and a well furnished, full-sized kitchen. The unit sleeps six: one king master and two queen beds in the loft. Both WIFI and satellite tv are provided. Various beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, umbrella and a grill are located in the storage garage below our unit. You may use the golf cart for no extra charge. *Please note that we do not guarantee the working condition of the cart. Much depends on previous renters. Kayaks can be rented on the mainland. Because there are no stores on the island, guests will need to bring in groceries. However, wonderful restaurants and activities are within a short driving distance with a quick ferry ride back over the bay to the mainland.

Enjoy time exploring the island by foot or golf cart over the white sand paths. Various local landmarks include the island chapel, library, and Don Pedro Island State Park. With no roads or traffic, this very special island surrounds you with incredible nature, the way Florida used to be. Amazing shells, sand dollars, and shark teeth bring new surprises as you stroll on the beach. Enjoy morning coffee watching the huge variety of birds, dolphins and manatees swim by or relax with evening sunsets filled with glorious colors over the ocean waves.

About Marcia Bouchie

We had been searching for years for a beachfront home. We knew we wanted a place that our family could spend time getting away from all the activities of daily life. Little Gasparilla Island provided just that. Through beach time, fishing, kayaking, hiking, and board games, our family is able to reconnect. We want to share our piece of paradise with others. This beach home blessing is meant to be a retreat and a time of refreshment for all who stay at our SeaSalt condo. "How shall saltiness be restored?" (Matthew 5:13). May all of our guests find that same restoration for themselves!

Always Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Best place to stay on the island. Waking to watch the wildlife in the pond with coffee doesn't get any better. Very well equipped unit they have thought of everything that you would need. Brought half as much as last year. Golf cart in tip top shape. Great to see the same friendly people from last summer. Beach access so easy. Be sure to check out the shell book in the coffee table. Became a little game for us. So fun to try and find each one. You will not be disappointed with renting this unit. Our 2nd time back and plan on returning for the future

Our third trip..... love the island, the beach, the Hideaway, and our rental condo...

(Our second time there..) Great that there is no cars, restaurants, stores on the island, yet access to those is an easy trip across on the ferry... For a relaxing, lazy, fun, family vacation, it can't be beat!
