Overview

Little Gasparilla Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

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 barrier island accessible only 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. (Sleeps 4 maximum)

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' Concierge/Greeter service with a young man named Bret. He will pick you, your luggage and groceries up at the dock and bring to the cottage and help bring your belongings inside. (Specific details available upon request) Bret will also pick you up on check out day and bring you back to the dock.

Get a world class tan, collect shells and sharks teeth on one of the best shelling beaches around, (especially after a storm). Make the best sand castles 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.

Great fishing right from the dock or right on the gulf!

Bring your fishing poles and fire up the BBQ grill!

Nancy and Bob great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and can't say enough about how lovely and enjoyable our time was at the cottage. Perfectly appointed and organized - had everything we needed, and some items we hadn't thought about! Very clean, convenient, and comfortable. The location is fabulous and we were fortunate to receive terrific weather during our stay. The newly improved back deck is wonderful. Wouldn't even consider another place on the island. As time goes on, we reflect this was one of the best, most relaxing vacations we've experienced. We'll be back!

Peacock Lane Cottage

I had the pleasure of staying for two whole weeks and loved my time. The house was very comfortable and clean and the view could not have been any better! Not hearing a car for my entire stay was certainly a bonus.

We have done shore vacations in many states but I have to say that the cottage on Peacock Lane on LGI provided the most relaxing and enjoyable beach vacation we have ever experienced. We arrived in late January and pretty much had the island to ourselves. During our long walks or sitting on the beach with a cocktail watching the magnificent sunsets, we did encounter a few folks who were all very affable. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable, and just abut 20 steps from the beach! The sunsets and panoramic views of the Gulf from the decks are themselves worth the trip. It's amazing how quickly you become accustomed to "Island Time" and where that time goes is really a mystery. We will go back.

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.
