Property description

Take a water taxi or bring your own boat to magical '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. 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 maximum)

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 ten 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 3 minute walk to the cottage.

We offer a 'complimentary' Concierge/Greeter 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. (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 right from the dock or on the gulf!
Bring your fishing poles and fire up the BBQ grill!

Notes:

A 300.00 reservation deposit is required at the time of booking to guarantee your reservation. (500.00 is required for 2 or more weeks).

If you would like rent our golf cart, the fee is 150.00/week. (Added to rental fee or you can pay our property manager if you decide to rent it once you arrive)

We do our very best to keep it in good running condition but "do not guarantee" that it will be working. We do 'not' provide a replacement cart if ours is not working. If you rent the cart and it breaks down during your visit (Not due to negligence) we will pro-rate days used and issue a refund.

The cottage is to be occupied by no more than "4 overnight guests". Any party falsely representing the number of people will be subject to immediate eviction without refund. Please do not ask us to make an exception. We would love to say yes to you but ask that you respect our policy on this.
