Island Get Away. Relax

Family-friendly vacation home in Placida
Little Gasparilla Island is a hidden paradise located between Ft. Myers and Sarasota. Our fully furnished, excellent located home is on an island that is only accessible by private boat or water taxi. There are no formal commercial establishments on the island such as restaurants or grocery stores. There are no paved roads on the lsland, only miles of sandy trails flanked by tropical foliage. Take long leisurely walks or travel by golf cart down these paths to explore the beauty of the island. The peaceful, uncrowded beach provides plenty of room for you to bathe in the sun all day, enjoy outstanding shelling, bird watching, swimming, snorkeling, playing with your children, and beautiful water views but the best of all, the brilliant sunsets that ends a perfect day. There is great fishing to be had by all that drop a line. Snook, Trout, Redfish, Snapper and more, in the world famous Boca Grande Pass you can try your hand at Tarpon fishing. GLI is the ideal place to get way from the mainland madness. and unwind in a secluded tropical paradise. If none of that can get you off the couch, there is always cable.....

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Experience!!!
The house is perfect. Very very clean. Tons of space. I loved the screened in porch and the top deck. Location is perfect - a quick stroll to the beach. Kayaks were amazing. Do yourself a favor and book this place ASAP.

5/5 Excellent

Great location for a relaxing island getaway!
Bonnie’s house was the perfect home base for our island getaway. It’s just a short walk from the bay where the ferry drops you off and kayak launch. Only a few steps in the other direction and you’ll find the most beautiful beach. The screened porch was perfect for playing cards and the hammocks under the house provided a nice spot for afternoon naps swinging in the breeze. Inside you’ll find everything you need for your stay. We brought a Brita water pitcher and used water from the tap. The golf carts and water taxis book up, so reserve early. If you are looking for a clean, low-frills, comfortable home in a perfect location for your island adventure, look no further than Bonnie’s!

Total Battery Recharge
Trips to this place are truly special. It is the perfect place to completely relax and spend quality time with your family. There are no distractions just nature and pristine beach. Bonnie was extremely helpful and responsive during prep for the trip. You will need to plan some due to the remote location but the truth is, you will need very little with you. Seriously! Don't over pack!The house has all that you need for the beach. Chairs, kayaks, some sand toys and a really nice umbrella. Just grab a towel and a swimsuit and go! Our young kids love it because they can run free with no worries of traffic. We will be back to this house and this island for family vacations as often as possible. Thank you, Bonnie for sharing this magical place 😊

What a wonderful place to stay!
A great place to spend a relaxing month in March. We really enjoyed our time on LGI !

5/5 Excellent

Excellent family getaway
LGI was a fantastic experience, especially for small children. Bonnie's home is in an excellent location, just a short walk to the beach (195 steps for me - from the front of the house to the end of the trail at the beach). The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, and sundry items. Beds were all comfortable and A/C worked great. We loved the outdoor shower for our return trips from the beach. I had to use my phone as a hotspot for the kids' tablets during their small amount of internet use, so keep that in mind if it's important to you. There's an occupied bald eagle nest in a tree across from the house, an occupied tortoise burrow on the property, from the beach we saw dolphins (or perhaps porpoises) swim by, and got to see a shark patrolling the water as well---which leads to the best part of the beach: There's a sandbar that runs parallel to the beach about 40 feet from the shore. This creates an area of water between the shore and sandbar that's excellent for children to play in because the water is calmer, warmer, and not too deep (maybe 3-3.5 feet at it's deepest), and the large sea creatures can't cross the sandbar because at its deepest the water was ankle deep when standing on the sandbar. The tide may affect this of course, but it held true for the entirety of our 5 days there. EVERYONE we met on the island was very friendly, but an extra special thanks to Alice and Rod for being such welcoming, helpful, and nice neighbors during our stay. We'll definitely miss them. In short, 10/10, will definitely repeat!
