Leave your car and your cares at the marina because Little Gasparilla is accessible only by water taxi! That means our beaches are uncrowded and tourists and traffic are just a mainland memory. If you are looking for a quiet tropical island to relax and unplug, Little Gasparilla is your dream vacation spot. Our "nightlife" consists of giant sea turtles laying their eggs -- our only bar is the sand bar where you can find sand dollars and shells!

The space

Sea Star Beach House is a 3-bedroom home located directly on the beach. Enjoy days on the beautiful beach, swimming in warm gulf waters and evenings watching the sunset across sweeping views of the horizon.

The ground floor of the house features a deck, with a storage room with beach toys, snorkeling gear, and a surf board. Take advantage of the charcoal grill and table for outdoor dining.

Upstairs is an open concept kitchen, with island seating, and living room looking out sliding glass doors to the 180 degree view of the Gulf of Mexico and 7 miles of white sand beaches. Also on the first floor is the master bedroom; with a half-bath and sliding door access to the front deck facing the beach and ocean. You can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. There is also a second bedroom on this floor with a full size bed as well as the main bathroom. The home features tropical, beachy decor, a warm and inviting color scheme and the Gulf views are among the best on the island!

On the second floor of the home, accessed by a spiral staircase, there are two twins with a trundle perfect for kids or teenagers who want their privacy!

Please note that while there are beds for 7, the upstairs room has virtually no floor space at all with the trundle pulled out, so it would be quite crowded if planning sleeping space upstairs for adults. (The upstairs is more suitable for 2 adults or children only.)

The kitchen features a stove, trash compactor, and full size refrigerator. (NOTE: there is no dishwasher.) The kitchen is fully stocked for any type of food preparation you want to make. The home also has a full size washer and dryer.

There is a small dining table in the living area (seats 4) and there is also a 6-person dining table on the screened-in porch. The deck also features a hammock and comfortable chaise lounge from which to view the beach. The living room has satellite TV and a dvd player. We have a small selection of dvds and games for your entertainment. Extras with this rental include free use of a dock slip, beach chairs, beach umbrella, wi-fi, boogie boards and beach toys...and the services of our island concierge who will meet you at the dock and help transport luggage and groceries to the house for you.

This home features a private boardwalk to the beach and an outdoor shower at the base of the stairs for rinsing off before coming indoors.

Guest access

You have access to the entire home, include a storage shed downstairs full of beach toys, boogie boards and noodles. There are beach chairs and an umbrella.

Interaction with guests

We have a home on the mainland and we try not to be intrusive but we are available if you have problems. We also have on-island handymen, a housekeeper who is on-island and we can get to the island fairly quickly during the day if you have issues.

My husband Buddy and I have lived on Little Gasparilla Island for over 30 years and we love to introduce guests to the joys of tropical island living. We love the pristine beauty of the beach, the friendly atmosphere of the island and the "old Florida" laid back ambiance. The …
