Bayfront, Private Boardwalk to Beach, Secluded

Located in: Placida
Our "Boat House" is located on Little Gasparilla Island, a remote and bridge-less barrier island with no cars, stores, or restaurants of any kind. It is only accessible by boat and that makes for a wonderfully quiet and private vacation! If this is going to be your first visit to Little Gasparilla Island, we expect you have many questions about it, so don't hesitate to ask!

'Wall-of-glass' sliding doors open up onto the screened porch that spans the width of the house and makes you feel as if you are sitting right on the bay. The open-plan interior living, kitchen, and dining spaces are roomy. Large screened porch is furnished with comfy couches, and leads to the outside deck and dock. The two bedroom, two bathroom configuration allows you to have either a 'his' and 'her' bath connected to the master bedroom, OR, provides a private bath for each bedroom. A well-designed, immaculate home, all on one level.

All-new, full-size granite and stainless steel kitchen; tile floors throughout with glass tile accents; custom decor. Leather couches, top-grade comfy beds, and much more. Quiet and private location. Use of fire pit, extra outdoor kitchen/gazebo, kayaks, and fishing gear.

Located at the north end of the island, our 'resort-style' location (of 3 very private rental homes) borders Don Pedro state wildlife preserve and stretches from bay to beach. The Boat House is situated right on Don Pedro Island Blueway Kayak Trail, and we provide kayaks for you to use to explore it! Enjoy the boardwalk that starts on the bay and winds through the mystical mangrove lagoons right to the Gulf of Mexico. This is a property like no other, designed with loving couples and small families in mind!

Espresso maker, wet bar area (with an extra full size refrigerator.) You will enjoy fabulous sunrises from your own private dock on the bay, and your strolls down the boardwalks to the very private beach to enjoy the surf and watch the fabulous sunsets.

NOTE: We also own the very private Couple's Beach Cottage, VRBO # 400780 that is part of our complex.

Neither home has a television connection - although we do provide a TV and DVD player and library of movies for your viewing pleasure. We are located on the narrow part of the bay where the wildlife abounds.

PARKING and ARRIVAL at Marina:
You will park your car and catch the water taxi from the following:
- Eldred's Marina (which is really more of a bait shop). They are located at 6301 Boca Grande Causeway, Placida, Florida 33946 (NOTE: The marina is right BEORE the toll booth!) You will enter the little bait shop to obtain a parking pass for approximately $6.00 per day to put on your dash. The water taxi picks you up out front.

The local water taxi service is provided by Pirate Water Taxi, with either Emmett or Bill as your captain. You'll want to call at least two weeks before you arrive to make pick-up arrangements. You can expect to pay about $ 35.00 from Eldred's during normal business hours. If the captain helps with your bags, you should tip him about $ 5.00. Please do discuss the pick-up rates as fees change seasonally and also increase EVERY half hour after 5:00 or 6:00 pm. Make sure you tell him that you are coming to Rebecca Hagelin's house! They know us well and will bring you directly to our dock #2 where wheelbarrows await you for use for carting your items to your doorstep. IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU SCHEDULE THE TAXI IN ADVANCE.

Some guests choose to rent a golf cart to explore the interior of the island during their stay. However, a golf cart is not at all necessary since there are no stores of any kind on the island. Please note that there is a limited supply available, and they are not in the best of condition. You can expect to pay about $ 50.00 per day or $ 225.00 or more per week.
