About the property

Bartoe Beach House - Quaint Cottage For 4 On Little Gasparilla Island

Bartoe Beach House is located on Little Gasparilla Island; a bridge-less 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. Guests must bring all food, beverage, clothes and personal items at time of arrival. Or a return boat ride to the mainland will be in order.

Pirate's Water Taxi 941.697.5777 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.

This quaint cottage will comfortably accommodate 4 people in the two bedroom, 1 bathroom floor plan. The master bedroom offers a queen size bed and storage for your clothes while the second bedroom provides 2 twin beds. The full bathroom with a combination bath/shower. Additional enclosed shower downstairs is equipped with hot and cold water, to allow for removal of sand after your return from the beach.

The open kitchen is well appointed with all the cookware, dishes and utensils needed to whip up a home cooked meal or simply make a tasty snack. All minor appliances are available; drip coffee maker, blender, crock pot and toaster. Full sized fridge and stove top oven. This kitchen does not have a dishwasher, since you're on vacation consider bringing paper plates.

This property is conveniently located close to the bay side of the island and near the community dock (#65) where the water taxi will bring you to or where you will dock your personal watercraft. There is a luggage/garden cart under the house for assistance in transporting your luggage a short 200 feet from the dock to Bartoe Beach House.

Once you are settled in, put on your swimsuit and shorts for a day on the pristine white sandy shores of Little Gasparilla Island. 7+ miles of unspoiled shoreline provide seashells and sharks teeth galore for the beachcomber or the perfect location for the surf-fisherman in the group. If you're looking for more fishing action, there are many knowledgable and experienced fishing charters/guides in the area (ask for more information upon reservation).

If you're looking to explore the island and see the local wildlife, remember to pack some comfortable shoes for walking or contact LGIcarts to ensure a golf cart rental during your stay. There are no cars on the island! Unfinished paths wind their way through the interior of the island between fishing shacks and beautiful vacation homes. The native trees provide housing for many species of birds and look down to see a gopher tortoise meandering down the path.

Whether you're looking to catch up on reading that novel, experience water sports like kayaking, paddle boarding and fishing or simply working on your tan, LGI is the ideal vacation location to disconnect from the chaos and reconnect with family, friends and nature.

Truly enjoyed the island.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, friendly people, both owners and renters. Low key and slow paced...just what we were looking for.

Peaceful, Relaxing Month

  • 4 of 5

If you’re looking for a getaway from the hubbub, Little Gasparilla Island is a great place. Bartoe Beach House was clean with a well-equipped kitchen and cute beach decor. We enjoyed the sunny deck in the morning which became a cool, breezy retreat in the afternoon and evening. The convenient location close to the dock was ideal for us because we used the water taxi often. The beach was only about 2 blocks away and was never crowded. There were lots of shells and good fishing on the beach. Paris, the property manager replied promptly to our questions. We’ll be back!

Couldn't have asked for more. Was exactly what I was looking for. Secluded. Private. Just a lot of fun for me and my family. Especially, my 5 year old daughter. She loved the water and the fishing. Got her first fish, so PROUD. Would definitely recommend and come back again.

Awesome Time and Experience at the Bartoe House!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most incredible R/R trip to the Bartoe House. It had everything we needed. We wished we could have stayed longer! We left 80 degree sunshine to come back to -1 windchill! The Property Manager Paris was very helpful and most accommodating. She even helped us get a ride over for our elderly parents when the water taxi was unable to accommodate their original reservation. Being on retired Florida time, I should have told my parents 1/2 hour earlier, but fortunately the person who met and brought them over was most understanding and we were very grateful for their help trying to navigate getting my parents over to the island for the day safely. We have been bragging non-stop about this little slice of paradise. Even Native Floridians struggle to "know of this place". While on the smaller side, Bartoe House had the perfect amount of accommodations for myself and my fiance'. It would have slept 6 comfortably and island living is mostly about living outside most of the time, and we took full advantage of this. The owners have thought of everything and you are most comfortable even with bringing the barest of things over. Seriously- A bathing suit and sunscreen is all you need. Will definitely be back in the future.
