Little Gasparilla Island - Ocean View, Golf Cart, Ferry, Pool, Boat Dock

Family fun at the shore
Two Bedroom. Two Bath. Ocean View. Under new ownership, completely remodeled in July 2018, with continued updates in 2019, 2020 (new appliances) and 2021 (new underneath decking)!!

Our condo is located at Hideaway Bay Beach Club on Little Gasparilla Island (Unit J-2 which overlooks the Gulf of Mexico), a seven mile, white sand, bridge-less barrier island. Guests will park their vehicle in a secured lot and board the free condo ferry for a five minute ride to our island retreat. This piece of paradise provides a time for families and friends to reconnect as they enjoy the seclusion of this island getaway.

The bay side provides boat slips and a dock for fishing. A heated in ground pool and community barbecue grill and smoker are also located there. The screened lanai provides a view of the gulf over the boardwalk and sea oats. And the ocean waves are just a quick walk away.

This furnished condo features 'beachy' decor, comfortable luxury bedding, 2 full baths, washer and dryer, and a well furnished, full-sized kitchen with new appliances in December 2019.

The unit sleeps six: one king master, one queen bed, with two twin beds in the loft. Both WIFI and satellite tv are provided. The condo is equipped with a kitchen table that will seat 6, 3 big screen TVs, one in the living room, master bedroom and 2nd bedroom. Various beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, umbrella and a grill are located in the storage garage below our unit. Golf cart, paddle board and kayak are included in your stay!!

Because there are no stores on the island, guests will need to bring in groceries. However, wonderful restaurants and activities are within a short driving distance with a quick ferry ride back over the bay to the mainland.

Enjoy time exploring the island by foot or golf cart over the white sand paths. Various local landmarks include the island chapel, library, and Don Pedro Island State Park. With no roads or traffic, this very special island surrounds you with incredible nature, the way Florida used to be. Amazing shells, sand dollars, and shark teeth bring new surprises as you stroll on the beach. Enjoy morning coffee watching the huge variety of birds, dolphins and manatees swim by or relax with evening sunsets filled with glorious colors over the ocean waves.

Live the island!
As always we love our time on the island! Thank you for sharing your home!

2/5 Poor

Red tide, got sick from it, couldn't enjoy the ocean.
With red tide there was so many dead fish on the beach you couldn't walk without stepping on one. Very large Sea turtle dead on the beach because of red tide. We all got sick from the smell and sore throats. Other families left the island to go to Boca Grande so they could go in the ocean.Very disappointed that we couldn't enjoy the Ocean thats the reason for renting on the island. When we went to go to bed the first night and pulled down the sheets there was sand in the bed.Sheets were gritty with sand. We couldn't dry our laundry because the dryer was broken. The stay was a big let down considering it was my Birthday and we couldn't enjoy the beach or ocean and ended up getting sick from the whole experience.

5/5 Excellent

Little Gasparilla
Our trip to the island was a very good experience. My Family (Wife, Myself, Two children, and our parents) all visited and had a wonderful time. The property was as listed, clean, and had all the necessities to make the stay very enjoyable. The schedule for the ferry is something to be managed, but is an experience on its own and the kids loved it. The property is very secluded and the beach access/environment was clean and felt very remote (what we were looking for). John hypercommunicated with us through the trip, as we did experience a slight issue with one of the carts, but was able to quickly and easily resolve. Overall 5/5 experience and would definitely recommend and return in the future. Recommendation; Don't forget bug spray :)
