Take the Water Taxi or bring your own boat to the magical 'Little Gasparilla Island'.
'Peacock Lane Cottage' is a Beachfront cottage on the Gulf. We are on a private bridge-less barrier island accessible only by boat. There are no roads, stores or cars, only sandy paths that you can explore by foot or golf 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! Leave all your cares behind!
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 not only a romantic place but the perfect family getaway too.
Pack very light and bring all your food and goodies with you as 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 good deep water dock that is shared by only the few cottages on our lane and is a quick walk to the cottage.
We offer a 'complimentary' Concierge/Greeter on arrival day with a young man named Bret who will meet you at Dock #21 and bring your luggage and groceries to the cottage.
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 from the dock or right on the Gulf!
Bring your fishing poles and fire up the BBQ grill!
*PLEASE NOTE: Our weeks run Saturday to Saturday however September - mid November we have lots of flexibility for arrival and departure days. (4 night minimum).
