Florida South Central Gulf Coast Villa Rental Photos and Description

Stilt House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come on down, grab a cool drink and nestle yourself into our hammock under the whispering Florida pines. Watch the sunrise from our secluded dock and the sunset from the pristine beach every day. Relax you’re in 'Old Florida' now.

This is a true island surrounded by the beautiful blue/green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Located in Colony Don Pedro, deserted, white sandy beaches on the west side and intercoastal, backwaters on the east side. Put your car on the private ferry over to the island and feel the stress leave your body.

No traffic here. The only sounds you will hear are the fish jumping in the lagoon or the waves crashing the beach. Most days, Stan, our resident turtle will wake you as he passes by for a few green beans or a few chomps on our hibiscus flowers.

Just 200 feet from your front door you can head south down the uninhabited beach, pass through the state park, about three miles and you are at the tip of Little Gasparilla Island. From that point south you are looking at Boca Grande. Head north up the beach about the same distance and visit the Palm Island Resort. Either direction you go the seashells and sharks teeth are under your feet. Watch for tarpon rolling, dolphins cruising, manatees, and loggerhead turtles bobbing their heads as you walk. Remember to take a dip in our gulf side private pool after your relaxing stroll.

Relax out back on the dock with your fishing pole. The snook, redfish, and trout are always there waiting to challenge you. Watch your bait, Jimmy the Egret will sneak up behind you and steal your fish food. Bring your boat and venture out into the fertile back country waters for giant snook, redfish, and tarpon. Or head down to Boca Grande or Stump Pass for world class Florida fishing.

So if you blew out your flip-flop, or stepped on a pop-top, relax you’re in paradise!

About Tracy December

We love the blue/green waters and the snow white uninhabited beach. It is a quiet and relaxing place with no traffic, cool breezes. Our family loves the water and the activities that accompany a place like this.

Tracy December purchased this villa in 2002

Why Tracy December chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We love the relaxed feeling you get when the ferry leaves the mainland and reaches the island. The tree shaded sandy roads, dogs riding on golf carts, the wildlife, and fishing.

What makes this villa unique

It is all unique. The hammock that hangs on our patio, the outdoor shower, the beach across the road, the cool breezes on our patio, the quiet setting while sitting out back on our dock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cozy and clean house, great surroundings and amenities. The beach, kayaks, sharks teeth, shelling, fishing from the dock. The Armadillo cruising through the yard many times. The pool was great, get a golf cart to cruise the island. Jim Hick's Golf Carts, great service.....

Try the Rum Bay Restaurant and Coconuts Ice Cream shop.

This was a perfect place to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday. Our two boys (10 and 15) loved every minute. The home is simply perfect. Tracy has thought of everything. We felt as though it was "our beach house" for a week. We say gopher turtles, manatee, dolphins and found over 600 shark teeth. We plan on returning every other year. It was a memory vacation - - one we will treasure forever. Thank you Tracy!

I absolutly love this property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been staying at this house for almost around 8 years straight for every spring break.The porch is great if you want to have dinner outside and if not too many mosquitos you can eat downstairs. I would definitely recommend a golf cart if you want to explore island. Fishing is amazing and the kayaks are very useful. The area since we have gone has been very safe, and no unusual activity. I recommend this rental property all the way!

"Loved our stay."

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is so welcoming. The owners are accommodating and conscientious. What a relaxing place to visit. We enjoyed walks at the beach, a nap in the hammock, shower in the outdoor shower (enjoyed the rain shower head) and dinner on the screened porch. What a perfect day. Then wake up and do it again. Can't wait to come back.

This is our third visit at Incommunicado. And each stay has been top notch. First you have the island - shelling, kayaking, beautiful beach, swimming, tennis, pool access, birds to watch, breezes - this is truly a place to go to and unwind. But the icing on the cake is Incommunicado. The owners have thought of everything - there are kayaks you can use, tennis rackets, beach towels, a wagon for taking your stuff to the beach, chairs for the beach, board games, plenty of movies to watch and books to read. If you are traveling from far away, it is really nice not to have to pack the extra items. The home is immaculate and each year, there has been something that has been upgraded. The landscaping around the home gives you a feeling of privacy. One of my favorite spots is the hammock - there is always a breeze and I spent hours there reading and napping. There is a grill, a picnic table, a laundry room, an enclosed outdoor shower, and a table/bench that you can sort your seashells out on after you bring them back from the beach. There is a screened in porch on the back of the house that you can enjoy mealtime, game time, or just quiet time with a cup of coffee as you listen to the sounds of nature around you. And if you don't want to be completely away from civilization, there is high speed internet and satellite tv. And the price for all of this is exceedingly reasonable! Tracy thinks of everything to make you stay pleasurable. We can't wait to go back again!

I enjoyed watching the na...

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed watching the native wildlife. The birds and gopher tortoises were entertaining. We took long walks and explored the island in golf carts. The unit was very comfortable and my family had an enjoyable vacation. Everyone on the island was very friendly and helpful. I look forward to return trips with my family.
