This 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom home with private outdoor shower offers just what you need for an escape to Little Gasparilla Island. Little Gasparilla Island is a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico that is only accessible by boat or water taxi. This island is residential and does not have any grocery stores or restaurants. The only commercial business is a golf cart rental/repair shop.
Swings on the upstairs wrap around porch provide an exceptional spot to watch the sunrise while enjoying your morning cup of Joe. Rocking chairs and another swing downstairs on the completed deck allow a peaceful setting to unwind at the end of the day.
The kitchen is stocked to allow for meal preparation and enjoyment, with the exception of groceries. Plenty of dishes and utensils, pots and pans for all of your cooking needs and a few spices in the spice rack are ready for you to enjoy a nice meal of freshly caught fish.
The comfortable living room offers plenty of seating for an evening of catching up with friends and family. TV with a DVD player and a collection of movies to choose from.
The upstairs bathroom with a combination bath/shower is conveniently located at the end of the hall.
The two kayaks included with the rental of this property allow the opportunity to get a closer look at the water life. Take a hat and a cool drink as you paddle down the canal and to the sand bar. Perhaps you will see a school of bait, a turbo conch or maybe even a sea urchin!
The utility room on the lower deck houses a washer and dryer. Also an additional refrigerator to keep your beverages cold and bags of ice for your fishing cooler.
Pirate's Water Taxi is the main mode of transportation to and from the island if you do not have a personal watercraft. Normal business hours are 8:30am - 5:00pm. There is a fee of $20 minimum one-way (this covers 2 people and luggage), with each additional person costing $10. The captain will run after hours if previously scheduled at an increased rate. This service runs out of Eldred's Marina where parking is available for $6/night.
