About Us


Little Gasparilla Vacation Rentals is the most trusted vacation rental resource on Little Gasparilla Island. 

We are the only vacation rental service that provides Little Gasparilla Island renters with guest services, housekeeping and trash removal services, and a maintenance crew, all on-site.  Our entire team works and lives on Little Gasparilla Island and can tend to your needs in a timely fashion.

We are a family owned and operated business and want to make sure your vacation home is perfect for your needs.  Owner Laurie Gaines has lived on the island for over 30 years, and her team will communicate with you throughout the decision-making process so you can feel confident in your choice to rent a home with Little Gasparilla Vacation Rentals. We work hard to build lasting relationships with each and every guest and we are proud to say that many of our guests have returned year after year! 

We are committed to protecting and preserving our beautiful island with a portion of each rental fee going to support MOTE MARINE, a local marine laboratory & aquarium.  Our donations help provide care for injured or orphaned sea turtles, manatees and marine mammals. 

Little Gasparilla Island is a mystical island, and we never tire of sharing it with friends and family, and hopefully soon with you.
