Leave your car and your cares at the marina because Little Gasparilla is accessible only by water taxi! That means our beaches are uncrowded and tourists and traffic are just a mainland memory. If you are looking for a quiet tropical island to relax and unplug, Little Gasparilla is your dream vacation spot. Our "nightlife" consists of giant sea turtles laying their eggs -- our only bar is the sand bar where you can find sand dollars and shells!
This beautiful beach home is the perfect place to stay at this amazing island getaway! The open floor plan is filled with fun and cheerful decorations and comfortable furnishings. This 3 bedroom 2.5 bath, plus loft home can sleep 8-10 comfortably and has something fun for everyone. Features include Flat Screen Plasma TV with video game connection, Satellite TV with Movie Channels, DVD/VCR, Screened-in patio with Large Dining Table, Down Stairs Deck with Hammock, Porch Swing, Single Swing, Patio Furniture and Charcoal Grill, 2 Outside Showers with Hot and Cold Water, Horse Shoes and Surround Sound Speakers. All of this is surrounded by a beautiful white sand yard! The yard offers lots of privacy, yet the house is just a short walk to the beach.
The kitchen is spacious and modern with stainless appliances. This large, family-friendly home is perfect for an extended family vacation or holiday get-together! (Please note that the upstairs loft area is open to the downstairs so the twin beds do not offer a lot of privacy.)
Your rental also includes the services of our island concierge who can meet you at the dock and help transport luggage and groceries to the house for you.
Please note we have age restrictions for rental of this home and we do not rent to college students during Spring Break. Your pets are welcome with a $100 non-refundable pet fee as long as they are current on all vaccinations and house broken.
This home also provides a $100 golf cart voucher toward the rental of a golf cart from LGI Carts to explore the island during your stay. You use this certificate just like cash and the renter is still responsible for any additional rental fees, security deposit and any damage fees. The voucher cannot be redeemed for cash should the guest elect not to rent a golf cart or if LGI carts has no availability. Please make golf cart reservations early!
INTERNET: There is no wired internet service on the island. There are a couple options for wifi. Most people just opt to use the mobile hotspots on their smartphones, especially if they have unlimited data or a large data plan. Cell service is excellent and that is the most convenient it seems to work a bit faster. We can provide instructions on hot spotting if you are not familiar. If you do not have a smartphone, we provide a free Verizon jetpack BUT you have to purchase data AND YOU MUST REQUEST IT IN ADVANCE. You can either bring a Verizon card with you OR we can sell you one when we bring over the jetpack. You can buy as much data as you need, but it IS we urge guests NOT to plan on using the jetpack for streaming music or videos, etc. It is more than adequate for checking emails, etc. and most people use about 2G of data per week which is $35. 5G is $60 and 10G is $100. (It is sort of like a cruise where you have to pay for the minutes you are on-line.) You just need to let us know in advance so we can make sure we have a fully charged jetpack available for you. If you bring a Verizon card with you, we can show you how to add the data. Or, we can pre-add data prior to your arrival but you have to let us know how much you think you will need. Just keep in mind that it is NOT the internet you are used to on the mainland, and anything that uses up a lot of data will increase your costs. (It is especially helpful to remind kids and teenagers who are used to unlimited data!) We usually suggest that people download books and movies to their tablets or e-readers BEFORE coming to the island.
