Property description

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!
