Overview

Little Gasparilla Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Key West style Bungalow - 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Take a water taxi or bring your own boat to heavenly 'Little Gasparilla Island'. (LGI)

'Peacock Lane Cottage' is a beachfront cottage on a private bridge-less island only accessible by boat. There are no roads, stores, cars -- only winding sand paths and lanes that you can explore by foot or cart. Take a few steps out the front door and you have 7 miles of secluded unspoiled beach to experience.

Enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and incredible sunsets from the front and rear decks of this tastefully furnished cottage. Fall asleep each night to the sound of the surf. The best part about this cottage is that it's an incredibly romantic place or the perfect family getaway.

Bring all your goodies with you because there are no services on the island, but if you need some entertainment or food you are only a ten minute ride by water taxi back to the marina on the mainland.

Water taxis run from 8am-5pm. (Later or earlier pickups with prior arrangement) If you bring a boat, we have a very good deep water dock that is shared by just our lane and just a quick walk to the cottage. We offer a 'complimentary' Golf Cart concierge service. If requested, you will be picked up at the dock and brought to the cottage and have help bringing your belongings inside. (Specific details available upon request)

Get a world class tan, collect shells and sharks teeth on one of the best shelling beaches around, (especially after a storm) help your kids make the best sand castle ever, sit on the porch swing and hold your lover's hand, explore, eat, drink, laugh, read, nap, swim, run, or have a treasure hunt! 'There is a lot to do on this island that has nothing to do!'

Finally for the fishermen out there, we are the epicenter of the state's best inshore and offshore fishing; tarpon, snook, redfish, shark, grouper and snapper just to name a few. Bring your fishing poles and fire up the BBQ grill!

A place to Escape to from an hectic world, Peacock Lane, Gasparilla Island

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I decided to get away after a busy season at work. What would be better than a getaway on an island? We chose Little Gasparilla Island .Easy to get to by water taxi. Just make sure to bring provisions and plenty of sun screen lotion..The cottage is cute with plenty of outside space for dining and tanning , inside comfortable with plenty of space and also a place to watch a favorite show on tv. . The view of the long sandy beach is spectacular ! Sunning , swimming in beautiful turquoise water, long walks , shelling and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. The cottage is clean and cozy. Great place to relax and get away from it all. We would highly recommend it.

The perfect chill....

  • 5 of 5
Where to begin? My husband and I were looking for a vacation that was different, quiet, beautiful, serene, peaceful, and relaxing - Peacock Lane cottage fit all those requirements! We stayed the first week of November and it was just perfect. An easy drive from Ft Myers Airport - with plenty of shops along the way to pick up all the provisions. We walked the beach daily, scoured the shores for that perfect shell, watched the dolphins playing, and simply vacationed. Laura and Laurie were just great to deal with - and Bret (the concierge) is just a great guy. We hope to return next year.....

Escape and unwind

  • 5 of 5
When you need to step off for a while, reduce stress and reconnect with friends and family Peacock Lane Cottage with ocean views is the place to do it. Fear not, we were able to watch Thanksgiving weekend football, they have cable, and check in on the world with wifi too. The cottage is comfortable and well laid out. We appreciated that the cottage was clean, organized and well stocked with essentials. If you plan to arrive on a holiday, making plans in advance for transportation and groceries is a must given businesses are closed or have shortened hours.

Pick Peacock Lane!

  • 5 of 5
We chose the Peacock Lane cottage for our honeymoon. It was the perfect location: not touristy but very tropical and fun! We loved that there wasn't much going on and tons of people around. The people we did run into were so friendly and helpful. Bret was such a HUGE help with our bags and he took us on a golf cart tour of the island, where we learned some history and neat stories too.
The cottage was perfect for the two of us, but would be plenty roomy for a family as well. The kitchen was stocked up with all the cooking utensils, plates, etc that you'd need and we even took advantage of the charcoal grill quite a few nights! We stocked up on groceries at Publix in Placida beforehand. Also, had cable and wifi for the times you'd rather relax inside.
Front door was just steps away from the water and the cottage had floats and beach chairs for us to use. Also, had plenty of beach towels stocked up too.
The sunsets from the back porch are breathtaking! Definitely must eat dinner out there while you're visiting.
Although we didn't bring our dog, I love that the cottage is pet friendly as well!
We will absolutely be back to visit, best vacation/ relaxation spot we've found yet!

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle
of everyday life, look no further. My family and I (spouse and 3 kids--8,6,4) just returned from what I would call the best beach vacation ever. This house is literally 15 steps from the water. It was like we had our own private beach for the week. The island is not crowded and the beaches aren't either. The house was the perfect size for the 5 of us. Everything you need is here for a week of pure relaxation. It is amazing how a 10 minute water taxi gets you away from the world. Truly a gem not to be over looked.

Perfectly Charming!

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed this charming beach cottage! Only steps away from the beautiful shoreline, gorgeous ocean view, gentle breezes, colorful palms, sea grapes, seashells, sunsets etc... We especially appreciated the native hospitality of dolphins, pelicans, turtles and even manatees! The cottage was perfectly decorated with a relaxing and welcoming feel. Kitchen even had beautiful views of the ocean...you don't mind doing the dishes when you can see and hear the ocean waves roll in. Kitchen pantry was well stocked with the little necessities that are easily forgotten about until you need them (like foil, food storage baggies, trash bags, paper towels, etc..thank you ). We're used to a king sized bed but again, with the sound of ocean waves as your lullaby, the queen bed was a wonderful boat drifting you away from it all. The owners and management were extremely thoughtful and kind...Loved, loved, loved Brett ...what a great asset to the LGI community...I'd vote for him to be the Mayor :) Thank you for a memorable and peaceful vacation...we will be back.
