TROPICAL BEACHFRONT COTTAGE WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS AND PRIVATE DOCK!

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!

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.

RELAXING AND ROMANTIC! DREAMY "OLD FLORIDA" BEACH COTTAGE!

Relaxing and Romantic! Dreamy "Old Florida" Beach Cottage!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent a thoroughly relaxing week at this charming cottage and we truly felt we had found a little piece of magic. The cottage really IS as close to the beach as the photos show! Peacock Cottage is even closer to the Gulf than the more expensive gulf-front cottages farther south! There were cooling breezes continually, and we could see the waves from almost every room in the house....even the bathroom! We also liked that there weren't so many stairs to climb....it was easier for us manage! We liked the casual "old florida" style and the charming seaside decor. We were also thrilled that we could bring our puppy with us....she LOVED having the beach nearby and friendly dogs to play with and it is wonderful to find such a perfect spot that is also pet-friendly! We really enjoyed sitting on the back porch late one evening watching the moonlight reflect on the waves and feeling like we had this deserted tropical island all to ourselves. Our second favorite spot was the front porch swing, overlooking the Gulf....I could sit there in the breezes for hours! We live in Florida and have been coming to Little Gasparilla for years, but this is the first time we have stayed in Peacock Lane Cottage. It did not disappoint! It was clean as a pin, we thought it was a great value, and we had everything we needed -- even beach chairs and an umbrella! We came on a busy holiday week, but I think we would it enjoy it even more in the Fall when there are fewer people on the island...then we will really be "all alone in paradise"! We will definitely be back!

THE MOST AMAZING BEACH VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful, secluded and quiet island helped us relax, meet great people, swim with dolphins and collect gorgeous shells.

House was perfect for our part of 4. Located seconds from the beach, but nicely shield by palm trees, bushes and neighborhood houses to provide privacy. It had all the equipment/accessories to enjoy our days on the beach: beach chairs and toys, towels, swimming goggles, ect. Golf cart took us around the island and helped to transport our belongings to and from the boat dock.

Kitchen had all the amenities (big fridge, microwave, oven, dish washer) and every day we enjoyed meals made from the scratch. Pantry had many staples, probably left by the previous visitors, which we were happy to use while making couple of dinners. Our neighbor was very kind to share with us his daily catch and we ate grilled fish every evening. There was also washer and dryer, so we never had problems with wet towels or swimming wear.

Living room had a big TV, lots of music, games and magazines. If you will ever get bored, what is hard to imagine, there is always something to do/play. Bedrooms and bathroom could use some updating and looks like new owners, that just bought the house, will work on this. Open space, bright colors, lots of windows and doors make this house very welcoming and soothing.

What we liked the most was wrap around deck and two seating areas on the opposite ends of the house. You can enjoy morning coffee on the swing while being fanned by tall palm trees or have a sunset dinner straight from the grill overlooking open water. Simply stunning!

TIP: Bring lots of fresh water. House has desalination system and you can use it for every day needs (showers, cooking, ect), but I would recommend to only use fresh water for cooking and drinking. Coffee definitely tasted strange and, when we used tap water for other cooking, taste of salt was always present.
But it’s a minor delta in the grand awesomeness of this place.

Amazing place!

IT'S LIKE ANOTHER WORLD!

My wife and I just returned from a week at this cottage and really had no idea what to expect. We just wanted to get away from the horrible Philadelphia winter. The entire experience was magical for us because it was so different and the weather was perfect for mid February. You take a water taxi (about 10 minutes) to the island from a marina that is out of Indiana Jones... the house is a 5 minute walk and a golf cart is made available for returning to the dock to pick up your luggage. Nicely decorated, three TVs,
no internet and appointed with everything you need. There is actually a cottage between this cottage and the water (which is about 30 yards away). But this was good because it blocked the afternoon sun and we could sit on the front or backporch and feel the gentle gulf breezes without being blinded.We hated going off the island and quickly got in to a slowed down island rhythm. No cars or stores or noise - beautiful sunsets and night time skies and the house was in excellent condition. We're going back!

MAGISCH! (MAGIC!)

  • 5 of 5
Little Gasparilla Island ist einer der schönsten Plätze auf dieser Welt und das Haus der perfekte Ort zum Verweilen. Michael war stets sehr bemüht und zuvorkommend und zugleich nicht aufdringlich. Die Ausstattung des Hauses lässt keine Wünsche offen, das Haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und erinnert einen jeden Tag daran, das Leben zu genießen! Wir haben keinen Sonnenaufgang und keinen Sonnenuntergang verpasst! Auf der Insel haben wir nur freundliche Menschen getroffen, es ist als würde dieser Ort das Beste aus jedem herausholen.

Michael, wir danken Dir für diese wunderschöne Woche und würden uns sehr freuen wiederkommen zu dürfen!
