Orlando Santana

We discovered this island back in June 1997, when we received a phone call from a local Realtor we were working with, she explained the Ferry-boat and the surroundings, I felt as though we were looking into a "Gilligan's Island type" and that was not what we wanted, but curiosity got the best of me, so we drove from Miami to Placida (3-1/2 hours away) to find-out for ourselves, and when we arrived, we were hooked. We closed on the purchase in September 1997 and we have been there renting-out ever since. 

Why This Property?

There are few barrier island properties in Florida and even fewer that are away from it all, such as Little Gasparilla island. This is a 10 minute boat ride away from the 9 to 5 world we live to no traffic to consider, as the only means of transportation is by golf car. You have 7-1/2 miles of Cristine shell laden beach. You can only walk the entire island by the gulf side, there is a National State Park in the middle of the island which is the boundary as to how far the golf car can travel to.
