Overview

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'. (LGI)

'Peacock Lane Cottage' is a Gulf, 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)

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 upon your arrival 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 we have some flexibility on arrival and departure days.*

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Relaxing place with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Peacock Cottage was a very relaxing place for a week. We brought our boat over from Eldridge's Marina which was a little hectic because we put in & took out on Saturdays, but that's to be expected. The cottage was the perfect size for our family of 4 & our pup. Many staples have been left behind by previous guests but I brought my own things anyway just in case. It wasn't necessary! We took our boat to Cabbage Key & other surrounding islands. We got supplies from 2 different marinas mid week. Great time!

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon here and had the best time. The cottage was very well equipped with everything you need, very cozy and mere steps to the beach! The views from the decks were great, and it was very welcoming, especially for our pups! The walks on the beach were incredible, and we found so many beautiful sea shells! We fished for crab and conch shells. We will definitely be back! Thank you Peacock Lane Cottage.

Perfect vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Peacock Lane Cottage is absolutely perfect! You walk out the front door and you're on the beach. The back porch had the most perfect sunset view and the front porch was so comfy and had a perfect ocean view. The cottage had everything we needed and it felt like home. The beach had an abundance of beautiful shells and we had a blast searching for them. Little Gasparilla Isalnd is truly a place to relax and unwind! This was our 2nd time visiting and went will definitely be back. This cottage was exactly what we needed!

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this property and didn't know exactly what to expect, it turned out to be one of our favorite vacations, we will definitely be back!! No stores or restaurants on the island, we brought all our food/drinks with us on the water taxi (10 minute ride) from the mainland. Required clothing is minimal, bathing suits, shorts, perhaps one long sleeve and you're set! The house is very well stocked and comfortable. Good size kitchen, lovely deck and porch swing. There is great cell service, direct TV, but you won't need those much or at all. The beach is steps away, chairs, towels, umbrellas are provided. Washer and dryer further limit a need to pack much! The size of the island provided us with almost our own private beach each day, tons of wildlife, shelling, and the most incredible sunsets we had ever seen. Peacock Lane cottage is a winner on LGI, we are eagerly waiting to return!!
