"The Boat House" is one of three houses on this secluded, 5-acre, bay-to-beach island "compound". It is bay front with dock immediately in front and the beach out back. (Boat access only, water taxi available.) Very comfortable and well-appointed. See the PICTURES!
2 Bedrooms (1K, 1Q) and 2 Baths for up to 4 persons.
Dock, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, beach gear (chairs, etc) and recreation gear (kayaks, SUPs)!
Boating, fishing, nature and water aficionados call this paradise!

The space
Our Boat House gives you the best of both worlds: Dock your boat right outside the front door and watch the wildlife from your porch overlooking the bay while listening to the waves crashing on the beach, which is just a short walk down private path. It is situated right on the Don Pedro Island Blueway Kayak Trail, and provide kayaks for you to use to go exploring!

Other things to note
Little Gasparilla Island is a bridge-less barrier island with no cars, stores or restaurants of any kind. It is only accessible by the local water taxi, or by personal or rented boat. It makes for a very private and quiet vacation, but it does require a little more planning.

We suggest making a detailed grocery list ahead of time and picking it up from the Publix that is just a 2 minute drive from the marina. There is plenty of room on the water taxi for all your belongings and groceries.

You can tie up (or be dropped off) at the dock, which is right outside the front door. Wheelbarrows will be waiting on the dock for you if you'd like to use them.

We live on this beautiful island but won’t stick around in the event of a hurricane or Red Tide--and we don’t expect you to either! So, if you cancel at anytime for hurricane or Red Tide, we will file an "extenuating circumstances" claim with AirBnB to help you get a full refund. And if either happens while you are staying with us, we will gladly refund rent and taxes for any unused nights. If for some reason AirBnB won't accept the claim, we'll personally refund your rent + tax by check.

Placida, Florida, United States

Little Gasparilla Island is not for the casual tourist. But if you're serious about vacation (if you're ready to unplug, have meaningful conversations, and explore what natural Florida has to offer), this is the spot for you. Whether you are honeymooning, reuniting with old friends, or taking a business retreat, we have the set up you need.

Our Beach Cottage, Boat House, and newly available Bay House are three distinct properties that can be rented individually or as a unit. They each maintain total privacy, but larger groups can enjoy their close proximity and shared amenities.

Shell collector, beach walker, marine-life lover, bird watcher and avid boater! But mostly a very busy handyman and groundskeeper. Although my wife and I travel extensively, this is our favorite place to be. We love its serenity, its natural setting, and its "OLD FLORIDA" look and feel. We also love sharing it and providing a great vacation experience for our guests.

During your stay
The Bay House, next door to the Boat House, is our full-time residence. If we are on the island when you arrive, we will greet you and help you with your bags. However, we are often traveling (and when we are, the Bay House is available for rent as well!) If that's the case, you can make yourselves at home and we'll be on call to send someone to help you should you need it.
