Hibiscus House - Beachfront Bliss on the Gulf!

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5

This home is well appointed with everything we needed. You must buy your groceries on the mainland and take a water taxi over unless you have your own boat. Arriving, we were met by a young man who took our luggage to the house. He...More

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Pet Fee: $100 per pet. Your pets are welcome at Hibiscus House, but due to some damage from recent 'furry visitors' we now must charge a non-refundable pet fee of $100 per pet. We may elect to waive this depending on size and breed of pet.

We also assess a holiday surcharge for Christmas, New Years, Easter, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day and Thanksgiving.

Please note that wi-fi is provided via a mobile hot-spot, but data is very expensive and data is limited. If you need to work, and require lots of downloading or streaming videos, you will most likely exceed the data allotment of 2G per week and overages will be deducted from your security deposit.

About the neighbourhood
Little Gasparilla Island is a nearly-deserted tropical island with no bridge, no roads and no commercial establishments. If peace and privacy are the hallmarks of a special beach vacation, you have found the right spot! Warm, shallow waters and balmy tropical breezes caress the island....sand pathways meander up and down the island for exploring by golf cart. (Golf cart rentals are available on the island) You park your car at the mainland marina and take a delightful 15-minute water taxi ride right to our dock. It is best to do all your grocery shopping prior to catching the water taxi....then you don't have to leave the island at all! You can even bring your pets on the water taxi with you! While on the island, in addition to swimming you can snorkel, fish from the dock or the... more
