traveler reviews for this little gasparilla island house rental

Truly "Paradise Found"

Review submitted: January 24, 2014   Date of arrival: January 11, 2014

What a wonderful vacation! The house was everything we were expecting and more. As the previous review states, the shower had some issues which the owner notified us about the morning of our stay (as soon as she found out about the issue). The owner offered her other home on the island if the shower was not up to our standards. The water was fine for us, warm not hot with plenty of pressure considering it is an island. The professional and knowledgeable repairmen where there the following morning and within a couple of hours the issue was fixed. They even stopped to answer our questions about the island and gave a little background info on the island which was great! The house is very clean and very well stocked. We prepared for the stay by purchasing all the groceries and such we needed before getting on the water taxi. We did not have to leave the island the entire time and would recommend (if you don't have your own boat) to do the same. The water taxi will accommodate whatever you need to bring. While there were houses around us, no one was staying in them and it did give the feeling of being secluded. The description of the views were right on, with filtered but nice views of the Gulf from the huge front and rear decks. Another added but unexpected bonus was both decks were screened, eliminating the pests. The owner was very gracious and very easy to deal with. You will not regret staying at the "Paradise Found". We will absolutely be visiting again next year but probably sooner.

Owners response: We always strive to be responsible owners and keep our properties in excellent condition. Most of the time we are able to address any potential problems before they become an inconvenience for our guests. Just added a new refrigerator so our guests would not be stranded with a weeks worth of food if the old one decided to quit unexpectedly!
We've never had disappointed guests with the cottage or Island. Come enjoy Little Gasparilla!

Wonderful stay at 'Paradise Found' and thank you very much to the owner for being easy to be in touch with, informative and helpful, and a gracious hostess.
The best part:
- the island itself is nice, the beach is lovely, and Don Pedro State Park is a few steps away (that means no development on that area of the beach)
- the cottage is clean and well supplied and has a convenient set up
- we rented SUPs and toured around the area; the location is amazing! We had dolphins around us a lot of the time!
- new years was nice-- many people doing fireworks right on the beach!
The iffy:
- if you like neighors and don't mind not being directly on the beach (mind you, you can hear the ocean waves and see a bit of ocean from the porch)as there are homes in front and around the cottage, then this place is great. If you really want seclusion, then this is not it. Sure, it's better than being in a condo or hotel room, but it's not a private island getaway.
- Once you're on the island (if you don't have your own boat) it's expensive ($15 each eay during business hours and double after dark; SUPs cost $30 in addition to people) and somewhat annoying to have to book the water taxi to take you off and then back on
The problematic:
- the shower needs fixing; I notified the owner and she said it would be fixed (I'm certain, given her personality that she's on it already) -- the handle was loose and pressure was low and not enough hot water

Overall? Pretty awesome!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Little Gasparilla is a wonderful, relaxing Island! Over the holiday weeks you may see more people around as many owners take that time to relax and celebrate on the Island. Many other times I have been the only person in eyesight on the beach all day.
It is always best to arrange water taxi pick-up times in advance to assure they are not on another run and will be available when needed. The fact that you need to get to the Island by boat or water taxi is one of the reasons it remains an unspoiled "paradise".
I have wonderful guests, and depend on them to share any mechanical issues or problems during their stay so I can address them immediately and appreciate all feedback!
