Property Type: House

Avg. Nightly Rate: $214

Newly renovated 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with private dock is located in a family-friendly neighborhood on Little Gasparilla Island. This home provides a lovely vacation spot for families with children or a getaway for friends looking to unwind, relax and escape from the crowded and chaotic. LGI is a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico that is only accessible by boat or water taxi. This island is residential and does not have any grocery stores or restaurants.

This home has received the TLC needed to make anyone feel at home. Comfortably furnished rooms, updated appliances and new laminate flooring in the common areas. Well appointed kitchen with all the utensils and cookware needed to create a delicious meal. Eat-in kitchen/dining room with seating for six, as well as out door dining on the screened-in lanai and downstairs on the deck with water views.

Master bedroom houses a king-size bed, two dressers, closet and on-suite. The room provides ample space for you to settle in. Private entrance to the screen-in back porch with swing.

The second bedroom features a queen-size bed, closet, dresser and also has a private entrance onto the screened back porch. The third bedroom has two twin-size beds, dresser and closet space.

Large windows in the living room allow you to enjoy views of Bird Key and boats scurrying across the water. The best views though are on the private dock!

The water is shallow enough at the seawall to explore and find sea urchins, star fish, fiddler crabs and other sea life. Walking out above the water is like being invited into your own aquarium. You can see snook skim the sandbar looking for a snack or bottle-nosed dolphin coming up for air at the end of the dock to say hello. Enjoy the shade of the covered bench or catch the rays on the end while humming a familiar tune about a "dock on the bay". The dock is a great spot to cast a line and catch one of those hungry snook or an assortment of other local fish including varieties of snapper and red fish.

The pristine white sandy beaches and Gulf waters are just a brief jaunt away. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the 7 miles of Gulf shore or simply spread out a blanket to work on your tan. The gulf waters are often crystal clear and a refreshing swimming spot. Before you return home, be sure to look for sand dollars, sharks teeth and shells to bring home as loot to remind you that sometimes you need a Pirate's Point of View.

Bartoe Beach House is located on Little Gasparilla Island; a bridge-less barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico that is only accessible by boat or water taxi. This island is residential and does not have any grocery stores or restaurants. Guests must bring all food, beverage, clothes and personal items at time of arrival. Or a return boat ride to the mainland will be in order.

This quaint cottage will comfortably accommodate 4 people in the two bedroom, 1 bathroom floor plan. The master bedroom offers a queen size bed and storage for your clothes while the second bedroom provides 2 twin beds. The full bathroom with a combination bath/shower. Additional enclosed shower downstairs is equipped with hot and cold water, to allow for removal of sand after your return from the beach.

The open kitchen is well appointed with all the cookware, dishes and utensils needed to whip up a home cooked meal or simply make a tasty snack. All minor appliances are available; drip coffee maker, blender, crock pot and toaster. Full sized fridge and stove top oven. This kitchen does not have a dishwasher, since you're on vacation consider bringing paper plates.


This property is conveniently located close to the bay side of the island and near the community dock (#65) where the water taxi will bring you to or where you will dock your personal watercraft. There is a luggage/garden cart under the house for assistance in transporting your luggage a short 200 feet from the dock to Bartoe Beach House.

Once you are settled in, put on your swimsuit and shorts for a day on the pristine white sandy shores of Little Gasparilla Island. 7+ miles of unspoiled shoreline provide seashells and sharks teeth galore for the beachcomber or the perfect location for the surf-fisherman in the group. If you're looking for more fishing action, there are many knowledgable and experienced fishing charters/guides in the area (ask for more information upon reservation). 

If you're looking to explore the island and see the local wildlife, remember to pack some comfortable shoes for walking or contact LGIcarts to ensure a golf cart rental during your stay. There are no cars on the island! Unfinished paths wind their way through the interior of the island between fishing shacks and beautiful vacation homes. The native trees provide housing for many species of birds and look down to see a gopher tortoise meandering down the path. 

Whether you're looking to catch up on reading that novel, experience water sports like kayaking, paddle boarding and fishing or simply working on your tan, LGI is the ideal vacation location to disconnect from the chaos and reconnect with family, friends and nature.
