About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Coconut Palm Cottage is brand new to the rental market! This charming home has been lovingly maintained by one owner for years. The lovely tropical foliage and well maintained yard attests to the care and love lavished on this little cottage. Now it is available for YOUR family vacation.

Lush tropical foliage!

The home is surrounded by frangipani, bird of paradise, orchids, coconut palms, even avocado trees! You truly get a taste of the tropics in this cottage!

Lots of privacy!

Set back from the road, with a sunporch in front, the house insulates you from golf carts passing by. The house is surrounded by lush tropical foliage to offer even more privacy. The home is peaceful and quiet and surprisingly large.

Centrally located!

Halfway between the bay and the beach, the house is just a short walk to the bay for fishing or to the beach for swimming. The home is near the south end of the island, just north of Hideaway Bay Beach Club, on Coconut Palm Lane.

Outdoor living area! In addition to the glass-enclosed sun porch upstairs, there is also a large outdoor deck all the way around the house with seating -- and the entire downstairs is screened for additional entertainment area. Downstairs a hammock, porch swing, sofa and chairs offer a comfortable spot to relax in the shade. The full-size washer and dryer are also located downstairs.

The home has two bedrooms and one bath and sleeps four. There are four twins with the ability to convert the twins to a king. (One bedroom is made up as a king but can be converted back to twins if requested.)

Guests also have access to a dock slip if you wish to rent a boat or bring your own. Your rental also includes the services of our concierge who can meet you at the dock and help transport luggage and groceries to the house for you. Beach chairs and an umbrella are also provided for your convenience and the home has a charcoal grill downstairs.


• You cannot drive your car to the island and the only access is via water taxi; there is no vehicle ferry.

• You must park your car at the marina at the mainland but it will be perfectly safe there; parking is $6 a day.

• The water taxi is $10 per person each way and he will drop you right at our dock

• All homes come with a grill. This home has a charcoal grill; please bring charcoal and lighter fluid with you.

• All homes come with beach chairs and an umbrella.

• You must bring all groceries to the island with you.

• There are no stores of any kind on the island, not even a convenience store.

• There is no need to bring drinking water; the water from the tap is safe and drinkable.

• There are first responders on the island and we have 911 service in case of an emergency.

• Golf carts are not necessary; the island is only 100-200 yards wide in most places and our concierge will meet you upon arrival to bring you to the house. But they are fun to go exploring.

• You can fish off the dock or the beach but non-Florida residents will need to purchase a fishing license.

• The beach is dog-friendly but dogs must be under your control, non-aggressive and most homes charge a pet fee

• If you request use of a mobile hotspot, keep in mind that this is NOT the internet you are used to on the mainland. There is no unlimited data and wi-fi is NOT for entertainment. No Netflix, no skyping, no streaming music, no downloading videos, etc. Many people find the mobile hotspots on their smartphones are better alternatives.

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 island...from dramatic beachfront homes to cozy interior homes with lots of privacy. Our vacation rental homes are painstakingly cared for...we 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!

Why Little Gasparilla Vacation Rentals chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We love the lush tropical environment of this home...and there is so much outdoor living space including a large yard and a huge screened-in downstairs porch. The home is close to both the beach and the dock so it is easy to walk to the beach for a swim or to walk to the dock for some fishing. We love the sun porch and the privacy of the outdoor porches.

Peace, Quiet and Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Nice home that is setup perfectly for a family of 4. We had two beachcombers and two fisherman. The house sits pretty much in the center of the island so we had equally short walks to the gulf and the bay. The home was in very good order upon arrival. Well equipped and very comfortable. Laurie and Tracie did a superb job providing all necessary info and details prior to arrival. This was our first experience at LGI and it went off without a hitch. This will not be our last visit and we will certainly look to stay here again.

Island Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Coconut Palm Cottage. It was cozy, close to the beach, and comfortable. The enclosed porch would be lovely in the cooler weather, and loved the outdoor shower convenience. We really appreciated Laurie's quick response to questions and minor problems during our stay. This was everything a relaxing beach vacation should be.

Disconnect in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year in a row we have stayed in this amazing cottage. The home has everything you could need and is in a short walk to both the Gulf and the Intercoastal. We can't say enough about how much we love this home and LGI. From the delightful owners to the amenities in the house, we countdown to our arrival every year. Quiet, relaxing and private, we couldn't have asked for a better week to get away from it all. Laurie is great and makes the rental process easy. We love it!

Coconut Palm Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely incredible! We took our children and had a long weekend...and it was most refreshing and very comfortable! The house is in such close proximity of the beach and gives a family a lot of privacy. We also appreciated the owners very much! They worked with us at the last minute to rent us the house. I have rarely ever dealt with such fine people. They really are the most hospitable family, very patient and kind! If you are planning a trip to island I would highly recommend renting from them!
