“Amazing first holiday rental”
Reviewed 17 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This was our first holiday rental and it could not have been better.
The booking was straight forward and the communication with Pam was fantastic who provided all the information we needed to check in.
Upon arrival we were greeted by gate security who was expecting us as Pam had sent him our details, we unloaded our luggage into the carts that were provided and parked our car (many spaces available).
The ferry leaves the mainland on the hour and the captain could not have been more helpful, advising us to put our suitcase in the cart as the paths are sandy on the island.
The ferry ride was great, we saw manatees in the dock area and many birds and dolphins during the 10-12 minute ride.
It was a 4 minute walk to the apartment and we could not have been happier when we saw where we would be spending Christmas week, it is positioned in the best location of the blocks as none of the 3 balconies that look out over the ocean were overlooked by anyone else.
It was wonderful to stand on the balcony (and the beach) and watch the sun set every evening, there was no need to close the curtains at night as we were not overlooked and there was no light to keep us awake, in the morning we would listen to the waves and birds - heaven!
We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property, thank you Pam xx

This beach condo was beyond what we expected. It was extremely clean, close to the beach, and every convenience was provided to make our vacation as relaxed as possible. Thank you Pam for allowing us to experience a vacation that will be hard to beat.

Little Gasparilla Island is a wonderful place to escape the everyday noise and commotion. Beautiful waters and great shelling will greet you from sunup to sundown. The condo is very nice with three gulf facing balconies and all the rooms are nicely furnished. We will be back!

“Our most stress free vacation in years!”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

people found this review helpful

We were looking for a few days of peace and tranquility along the Gulf coast beaches. We weren't interested in the packed beaches with constant noise, crowds and motion, but something more like Florida before the crowds.
This placed was perfect! The island is only accessible by ferry, so......no traffic. The unit itself is elevated, so you have a perfect, unobstructed view of the beach from 3 private patios. Due to the elevation, there is a constant breeze with the 3 patio doors open. Do yourself a favor. Turn off the television and the music and any other noisemakers .....and just listen. No traffic, no human voices. All you hear are the waves, the birds and the wind in the trees.
The unit is a bit older, but very well maintained and equipped. Everything you will need is already here.....except food.
You can save about 3+ hours of your first vacation day. Make a list of all food and drink items you want, and buy them at the nearby Public's before you board the ferry for the first trip over. There are plenty of wheeled carts available to move all your food and luggage to the condo. Another tip is to rent a golf cart for at least a couple of days. The island is large, and there is much to explore, and plenty of time to do it.
We loved this trip, and very much intend to do it again.

We are so glad you had the opportunity to come and enjoy our unit and the island. Your review is much appreciated and valued. and yes, there is a little pre-planning. Sometimes guest do not realize how much they truly will enjoy peace and tranquility until they experience it first hand and can take note of the differences. We look forward to having you back! :)
