Antigua Hut On Little Gasparilla Island

Bedrooms 3
Space 980 sq ft
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This quaint 3/2, 1100 sq ft island home has everything you need to disconnect from the craziness of the world and enjoy the island life! We've recently installed a metal roof, a/c unit, flooring, counters and furniture! You will have access to the golf cart and kayaks, for those that want to cruise the island or go float the water looking for snook or redfish. The Antigua Hut is located off dock 26, approximately 75 yds from the dock and 75 yds from the beach.

For those unfamiliar with Little Gasparilla Island, it is only accessible by boat. There is a water taxi that runs out of Eldred's Marina, Pirates Water Taxi. You will have to inform them you are going to dock #26. If you have your own boat, you can dock up to #26 at no charge.

About Sam Marsonek

Hi, my name is Sam Marsonek. The Antigua Hut has been in my family for over 30 years. Many fond memories have been shared on LGI by all of our family. My wife and I just bought the house in July, 2015 to ensure our 3 daughters would be able to grow up down there as well. We currently reside in Tampa.

Sam Marsonek purchased this bungalow in 2015

LGI Trip to Antigua Hut.

  • 3 of 5

the house needs some updating. The master Bedroom needs a new matress. The bunk beds a child maybe able to sleep on it but, not an adult as there was no padding in the mattress. The golf cart worked 1 day and the remaining 3 days it didnt worked which was awful as we couldnt get around. The livingroom and kithchen were great. Had everything we needed. Overall it was a good trip but, next time we will stay on the south end of the Island as there is a beach where the north end there really isnt one.

Unpleasant stay

  • 2 of 5

The property needs some serious attention. The golf cart was unsafe to drive due to the smell of burning wires/cables. It also had a flat tire Was unable to view the island by golf cart. Owner was contacted but the issue was unresolved. The repairman never came and the owner never responded to anymore emails. There is a consistent smell of sewage in the master bedroom. Shower also drains straight to the ground. The second bath tub did not drain well. You stood in inches of water while showering. There were ants in the house. Hand rail on the porch needs to be extended especially if you have small kids. We left 2 days early. We were just over it!

I’m giving it two stars for the property location. Access to the beach and boat dock was perfect and the AC worked great.

Fantastic island getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fishing and boating paradise. Everything we needed was provided and then some. It was great having a golf cart to get around the island and 2 kayaks available. There are beautiful shells and sharks teeth on the beach. The inshore fishing doesn't get any better. Snook, trout, reds and tarpon are within 100 yards of the dock. If you're looking for a quiet getaway I highly recommend.

Beautiful island

  • 3 of 5

The island was perfect for our family. A little more disclosure on the details of travel would have been helpful. We didn't know that the water taxi only runs during daylight hours (starts an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset). If you want taxi service other times, then you have to book a week or two ahead of time, and it will cost you double the price. Our flights did not fit into the water taxi's schedule. Also, you have to pay for parking and garbage disposal at the Marina where you can use the water taxi. The lock box code was emailed to us, but the e-mail information was incorrect and we had to call the management company.

Other than those logistical obstacles, we had a wonderful time! The cottage itself was exactly what you paid for.

This place needs serious work and updating. There is serious electrical problems. The wifi is almost non existant. Which was very unhandy for keeping up with work. The showers drain onto the ground and the whole place reeks of sewer gas. I gave it two stars just because the island itself was beautiful. The owner and property manager were contacted several times with no response. The golf cart does not function the kayaks are so nasty there is no one that would want to use them. Stay away.
