Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Placida - Coquina Cottage

2 Bedrooms - 2 Bathrooms - Sleeps 6

Coquina Cottage is a bright and sunny 2 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home on beautiful Little Gasparilla Island! It overlooks both the Gulf of Mexico and the community lake and is fully stocked with everything you need for a fabulous LGI vacation!

FREE GOLF CART! The owners will allow you to use their golf cart to explore the island. (No one under age 21 is allowed to drive the cart.)

FREE POOL! Most of the private rental homes on the island have no pool, so if your kids want the best of the beach AND a freshwater pool, this is the spot for you.

FREE FERRY SERVICE! No hassles with the water taxi or having to reserve a week in advance. Our FREE ferry service will pick you up on the mainland and drop you right at our dock.

FREE PARKING! Our mainland parking lot also offers free parking with your stay.

FREE WI-Fi! Your rental includes community wi-fi so you can stay connected with the office...(just don't tell them you are looking at the Gulf of Mexico while working!)

FREE DOCK SLIP. Our large community dock has over 20 spaces if you decide to bring your own boat, available first-come, first serve (max. length 21ft.)

FREE TRASH PICK-UP! Many private homes on the island require you to take your trash back to the marina with you...At Coquina Cottage you simply place it in the strategically placed receptacles and it is removed for you! What could be easier?

FREE CONCIERGE! Our island greeter will meet you at the ferry landing with his golf cart and help transport luggage and groceries to the house for you!

With all these extras comes a clean and comfortable "home away from home", stocked with pantry items, beach chairs/umbrella, beach towels, all linens, pots and pans, appliances and everything you need for a carefree and comfortable vacation. The screened front porch overlooks the lake and the Gulf of Mexico and has additional outdoor dining. There is an open kitchen/living area, tiled floors and a convenient downstairs guest room. Upstairs, the master has fabulous views of the turquoise Gulf waters and an en-suite bathroom. Fishing is great from the dock or the beach. (We will provide you with information on fishing licenses needed when you book.) We can help you arrange kayak or paddle board rentals, an island massage, charter or fishing tours and we also include the services of our island concierge who will meet you when the ferry docks and help transport your luggage and groceries to the cottage for you!

About Little Gasparilla Vacation Rentals

We have lived on the island for 30 years and we started renting our own home many years ago when we traveled. Then our neighbors asked us to handle rentals for them also -- and now we offer vacation rentals in a variety of price ranges and locations on the dramatic beachfront homes to cozy interior homes with lots of privacy. Our homes are painstakingly cared want you to feel like you are vacationing in a friend's home rather than a sterile "rental unit". So relax, kick off your flip flops, dig your toes in the sand and enjoy the island lifestyle!

Absolutely everything We thought it would be.. Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Coquina Cottage was beautifully decorated. It felt like I was on the beach just entering the condo. The location of the condo is perfect for beach goers or boaters. We brought a boat and my husband and son were fishing most of the time and I was on the beach. I loved being able to leave my chair and umbrella on the beach, walk back to the condo to make a sandwich, and return to the beach with everything the same as when I left. The golf cart was really fun to have. We explored the island in the evenings. I loved the mornings. While I was preparing breakfast I was looking out across the pond and watching the waves. It was beautiful and tranquil. We had such a great week. I've already asked Laurie to hold onto my deposit because we intend on returning in a month or so.

Romantic Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I are the kind of folks that like peace and quite, relaxing by a beautiful beach and reading a good book... This place met all those requirements. We had a fantastic stay and plan on returning soon. The people were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable....

Great Condo with Great Views

  • 4 of 5

This was a great condo to enjoy for vacation! We have been to the island many times renting houses and condo's at Hide-Away-Bay complex. Location of the condo is great to the beach and has a great views to the gulf! Light and airy colors and lots of light from the side windows since it's an end unit was fantastic! Agent was extremely helpful and very accommodating! Great stay here recommended by a sun-seeking family that enjoys the Gulf and Island.

Coquina Cottage is my new favorite place!!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t even begin to tell you what a peaceful experience it is staying on an island with a very limited population and no cars!! This was our second visit to Little Gasparilla Island, the first time staying at one of the cottages further up the beach. Even though our previous experience was fantastic, we preferred the easy schedule and cost (free) of taking the Ferry provided by Coquina Cottage, and also having access to a beautiful pool as another swimming option besides the Gulf. Another advantage is the garbage bins that are available so we didn't have to bag up our trash and take it back to the mainland with us like before.

The home was very clean and beautifully decorated with a great seaside feel to it. The furniture and beds were very comfortable and it has a unique, cozy loft. Overall, it has an open spacious feel to it with two eating areas, one off the kitchen, and the other in the screened in porch which has an incredibly soothing breeze, and a lovely view of the Gulf. The kitchen has everything you need to make delicious home cooked meals. However, make sure you pre-plan your meals accordingly, there are no stores or restaurants on the island and you will have to bring your groceries from the mainland. (There is a Publix supermarket nearby) The Ferry, that runs every couple of hours, has carts you can use to take your food as well as your belongings to and from Coquina Cottage. There is also a Grill if you prefer to BBQ. There is Internet access, good cell phone service, and TV. (We never got around to watching it; the beach was too much of a distraction!)

The island and beach were incredible, and we took some extraordinary walks, (you must take the short walk to the south end of the island) watched exceptionally beautiful sunsets and got some amazing shells and tan lines! There is also a quaint Chapel with Sunday morning services if you are interested.

Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us!

Coquina Cottage is located on scenic and pristine Little Gasparilla Island. Accessible only by private boat, ferry or water taxi, the island offers a glimpse into Florida the way it used to be, before high rises and seawalls.
