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'.

'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, 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! Leave all your cares behind you!

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 and 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 good deep water dock that is shared by just our lane and 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 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 (September - early November) we have some flexibility on arrival and departure days.

Always peaceful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year on LGI at the Peacock Lane Cottage and it never disappoints! There are great amenities, and you can't beat the closeness of the beach, the shelling and collecting shark teeth! The house is great and comfortable. Our dogs enjoy lounging on the porch all day and taking in all the different views! We catch fresh speckled crabs and lightning whelks! We also love the fresh coconuts all over the property! We absolutely love coming here and plan to keep coming for many years! The owner is so nice and helpful and that also makes the trip easy and stress free!

Steps to the beach, amazing sunset views

  • 5 of 5

Well located cottage, large kitchen with pantry and clean updated appliances. Since you are cooking all your meals there is a large pantry with many small appliances and plenty of supplies , paper and condiments in case you forget anything. Large master bedroom with king bed, access to bathroom and sliding doors to back deck. Deck is great for early morning coffee and sunset watching , or meals as there is a large table with 6 chairs and small bistro set. The Second bedroom has 2 twin beds. Kitchen has large counter with stools and side buffet with emergency supplies, candles , batteries and dining supplies.Plenty of pots pans and utensils. Separate TV/ game/ reading room.

Open living room with lots of windows/ sliders. Few steps to the beach and short walk to bay/dock. Highlights were hearing the waves outside your window, porch swing, private outside shower, sunsets, all the amenities for beach fun, washer/dryer, lots of vegetation created privacy., pet friendly , a few steps to the beach.stars at night. Activities include shelling, beach, walking, swimming, reading, relaxing, fishing, a golf cart for exploring.The owner Laura was easy to communicate with and genuinely wants everyone to enjoy their stay. Easy to make water taxi ride with Evan and transfer from/to dock with concierge Brett. Be aware there are no restaurants, bars , stores, you must bring everything with you,if you need additional food and supplies you must take the water taxi back to the marina and drive to the stores. I would recommend this cottage.

Our Own Private Little Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived at Peacock Lane cottage after finding this adorable little spot the VRBO. I’ll admit, I was a bit concerned that we would be on an island with no stores, no car and no way off except by boat....let me tell you that once we arrived all of my worries were gone. We were met by a wonderful greeter at the dock that helped us load our things onto the golf cart and took us over the Peacock Lane Cottage (only about a 1 minute ride.) As you come into view of the cottage and the turquoise blue waters of the gulf, you know that you’re in paradise! I was so impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage and all of the was truly a “home away from home.” We spent the week relaxing on the beach (just steps from the cottage,) collecting seashells on miles of beautiful beach, taking walks, watching dolphins play and of course watching the most amazing sunset/ every evening. We absolutely loved the two decks that the cottage offered (one was covered and had a porch swing and the other was open with lounge chairs and an outside table that was perfect for family meals.) While there are homes on both sides of the cottage we had complete privacy which was much more appealing then some of the other places I’ve rented from before. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this spot, it really is something out of a dream and I cannot wait to return again next year. Working with the owner Laura was an excellent experience! She was very helpful to us during all communication (we spoke via email and by phone) and was always quick to return my questions. We explained our concerns about “island living” but Laura gave us all the information we needed to know about the water taxi, bringing groceries for the week, things available to do at the cottage as well as extra activities provided by other companies local to the island. If you’re looking for a getaway I would highly recommend Peacock Lane Cottage!

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to LGI in the past and could not wait to get back as we live in a big city and need to decompress and can't think of a better place to relax and unwind.

The minute we step off the water taxi, we are in heaven!

We loved Peacock Lane Cottage and the owners were gracious and easy to work with.

The cottage is beautifully decorated and has everything you would ever need for your beach vacation. (They have thought of everything)

The property is quite unique as it has a private front yard, surrounded by coconut palms and seagrapes. The Gulf is just a few steps from the cottage and the sound of the waves is so relaxing. We enjoyed the large rear deck as it is amazingly private and enjoyed dining and sunbathing there. The sunset views from both the front porch and rear deck are breathtaking!

The large outdoor shower with a stained glass window of a sailboat was extra special.

If you love collecting shells, sharks teeth, building a sandcastle and walking along a quiet, white sandy beach, you too will love the cottage and the Island.

We have never experienced anything quite like LGI and plan to return to Peacock Lane Cottage every year.

Be prepared to relax like you never have before!

Thank you Laura and Robert for sharing your little piece of heaven.

This cottage on the beach was the perfect family vacation spot! Quiet, private beaches, great shell and shark tooth hunting, gorgeous sunsets from the back balcony, and a cute little cottage to call home for the week! Our boys even said this was their favorite vacation spot so far! The owner was so great to work with and answered any questions we had very quickly! It will be hard to go anywhere else after our week here! Thanks for the perfect relaxing family vacation!
