Little Gasparilla Island, Florida-Beachfront-Spectacular Gulf Views-Dock & Pets!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

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

Take the Water Taxi or bring your own boat to magical 'Little Gasparilla Island'. (LGI)

'Peacock Lane Cottage' is a Gulf, 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. Collect shells, sharks teeth, fish or do nothing at all!

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)

Pack very light and bring all your food and goodies with you because there are no stores on the island. If you need some entertainment, food, or other off island activity, you are only a 15 minute ride by water taxi back to the marina on the mainland. (Water taxi runs 7 days per week)

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 a quick walk to the cottage.

We offer a 'complimentary' Concierge/Greeter upon your arrival with a young man named Bret who will meet you at Dock #21 and bring you and your luggage and groceries to the cottage and help bring your belongings inside. (More details when booking)

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 on the dock or on the Gulf!

Bring your fishing poles and fire up the BBQ grill!

*PLEASE NOTE: Our weeks run Saturday to Saturday. During the off season we have some flexibility on arrival and departure days.*

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon here and had the best time. The cottage was very well equipped with everything you need, very cozy and mere steps to the beach! The views from the decks were great, and it was very welcoming, especially for our pups! The walks on the beach were incredible, and we found so many beautiful sea shells! We fished for crab and conch shells. We will definitely be back! Thank you Peacock Lane Cottage.

Perfect vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Peacock Lane Cottage is absolutely perfect! You walk out the front door and you're on the beach. The back porch had the most perfect sunset view and the front porch was so comfy and had a perfect ocean view. The cottage had everything we needed and it felt like home. The beach had an abundance of beautiful shells and we had a blast searching for them. Little Gasparilla Isalnd is truly a place to relax and unwind! This was our 2nd time visiting and went will definitely be back. This cottage was exactly what we needed!

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this property and didn't know exactly what to expect, it turned out to be one of our favorite vacations, we will definitely be back!! No stores or restaurants on the island, we brought all our food/drinks with us on the water taxi (10 minute ride) from the mainland. Required clothing is minimal, bathing suits, shorts, perhaps one long sleeve and you're set! The house is very well stocked and comfortable. Good size kitchen, lovely deck and porch swing. There is great cell service, direct TV, but you won't need those much or at all. The beach is steps away, chairs, towels, umbrellas are provided. Washer and dryer further limit a need to pack much! The size of the island provided us with almost our own private beach each day, tons of wildlife, shelling, and the most incredible sunsets we had ever seen. Peacock Lane cottage is a winner on LGI, we are eagerly waiting to return!!

This home is absolutely perfect in EVERY way! The owners definitely thought in terms of comfort, clean, plenty, and high quality for their guests. These are the most thoughtful & generous towards their guests owners we have ever come across.

The home has two well thought out & comfortable porches (one covered/one open) by which to stay home, relax and be at the beach. The front porch is covered has a large swing which was the initial reason I chose to stay at the home. I sat there each morning while having my coffee, napping on the swing in the afternoon & sat with my grandson and talked about the day at night. In addition, the covered front porch has a four Adirondack chairs set in a conversational design and a large table by which all can eat under the shade. Again all of this while being able to look at the beach.

The back porch is open for those that want to lay, sit, or eat in the open. The lounge chairs are high quality& very comfortable. Again, the owners put in four lounge chairs so that everyone could have one. Most owners will do the typical 2 but these owners did 4. This porch was perfect for watching the sunset each night. While most people had to walk down to the beach we just enjoyed a meal, dessert, & drinks each evening on the new back porch table toasting the day as we watched the sun set from the deck. PERFECTION. In addition, the deck is built in a way that you can lay on the loungers & see through to the beach.

The living room has two sitting areas which we found to be ideal.

The beds were extremely comfortable with upscale linens and well thought out furniture for the needs of guests.

The bathroom had much room for storage and had everything one would need including ideal cleanliness.

The kitchen is perfectly appointed & has a LARGE walk in pantry for food & all the extra's one brings. In addition, it was stocked with much thought towards their guests~ extra cooking equipment including a large electric pancake griddle, paper goods, spices, oils, foil, plastic, many dish towels, etc..

The owners have it stocked so that no guest will ever run out of any of these extras including cleaning supplies & toilet paper.

The laundry room is downstairs & again had good not cheap laundry detergent there. We appreciated the full size quality washer/dryer so everything was always nicely cleaned & in a timely fashion.

The golf cart was a treat & thankful for thebeach chairs/umbrella.

Cheers & much gratitude to the these owners!!

A Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a hidden gem in a state full of beaches and summer fun. The cottage is situated in the perfect location, steps from the beach, about fifty steps to be exact... The dock is also a short walk which makes it convenient on check-in and check-out day. The amenities in the cottage are perfect for a family of four. Our kids quickly ranked the vacation top two of all time. We enjoyed the beach, water, sea life, wild life and the utter tranquility of the whole island experience. Laura is phenomenal and communication was flawless. Bret's services to and from the dock were timely and welcomed. Emmett's water taxi operates like clockwork and also appreciated. We made some great memories collecting shark's teeth, fishing and even boating!!! We look forward to making the visit an annual family tradition!!! Thanks you!!!
