One of Florida's Last Bridgeless Barrier Islands on Florida's Gulf Coast
Looking for a uniquely wonderful vacation that offers miles of an almost deserted beach, the ultimate in fishing, lots of privacy, quiet times, and a glimpse of yesterday’s Florida? Gasparilla Villa offers this and more. You have found a true island paradise for beach goers and fisherman alike. Your family and friends will never forget this wonderful experience.
Gasparilla Villa is tucked into mangroves and palms on the bay side of a quiet bridgeless barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico just north of Boca Grande. It is on Little Gasparilla Island which lies between Englewood and Sanibel Island next to Boca Grande.
The Boca Grande area is world famous for it's quality fishing and hosts one of the finest backwater flats in Florida. With a choice of bay fishing, surf and deep sea fishing, almost anything goes. Test your skills fishing for tarpon, snook, redfish, mackerel, trout, permit, red snapper and grouper. Gasparilla Villa has its own private dock, a separate fish cleaning house and lots of freezer space. Leave your fishing gear on the boat.
For the beach comber, there are miles and miles of almost deserted pristine beach front with no condos, stores or gift shops. Abundant shells await with swimming and shore birds only a three minute walk away. At sunset, it is an island tradition to always be on the beach with your favorite beverage to watch the dramatic show and to try to spot the elusive green flash.
Snorkel, kayak, canoe or sail in the waters that surround the island. Rent a golf cart and explore the miles of nature trails and roads. There is even a local captain, Capt. Dick James, that will give you and your guests a scenic tour. There are several excellent restaurants available by water taxi or your own boat for some of the finest seafood on the Gulf Coast. Numerous golf courses are in the area on the mainland.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by your personal island mates who will acquaint you with the Villa and the Island. Your island mates will be available during your stay to meet your needs.

A water taxi is available if you do not own a boat.
