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.
