About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Come on down, grab a cool drink and nestle yourself into our hammock under the whispering Florida pines. Watch the sunrise from our secluded dock and the sunset from the pristine beach every day. Relax...

This is a true island surrounded by the beautiful blue/green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Located in Colony Don Pedro, deserted, white sandy beaches on the west side and intercoastal, backwaters on the east side. Put your car on the private ferry over to the island and feel the stress leave your body.

No traffic here. The only sounds you will hear are the fish jumping in the lagoon or the waves crashing the beach. Most days, Stan, our resident turtle will wake you as he passes by for a few green beans or a few chomps on our hibiscus flowers.

Just 200 feet from your front door you can head south down the uninhabited beach, pass through the state park, about three miles and you are at the tip of Little Gasparilla Island. From that point south you are looking at Boca Grande. Head north up the beach about the same distance and visit the Palm Island Resort. Either direction you go the seashells and sharks teeth are under your feet. Watch for tarpon rolling, dolphins cruising, manatees, and loggerhead turtles bobbing their heads as you walk. Remember to take a dip in our gulf side private pool after your relaxing stroll.

Relax out back on the dock with your fishing pole. The snook, redfish, and trout are always there waiting to challenge you. Watch your bait, Jimmy the Egret will sneak up behind you and steal your fish food. Bring your boat and venture out into the fertile back country waters for giant snook, redfish, and tarpon. Or head down to Boca Grande or Stump Pass for world class Florida fishing.

So if you blew out your flip-flop, or stepped on a pop-top, relax you’re in paradise!

Cozy and clean house, great surroundings and amenities. The beach, kayaks, sharks teeth, shelling, fishing from the dock. The Armadillo cruising through the yard many times. The pool was great, get a golf cart to cruise the island. Jim Hick's Golf Carts, great service.....

Very relaxing and nicely setup

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a different Christmas this year and this was perfect for a relaxing few days at the cottage. Place is clean and stocked with essentials. We and our 2 dogs had a good time. Beach time was a little irritating because of a bloom of red tide which gave us and dogs some discomfort. Funny to watch dogs play in water and sneeze but back at cottage with a bath for the dogs and away from main gulf breeze cleared up any lingering problem. Golf cart riding was interesting to see the many homes decorated for the season. We will return. Thank you Tracy.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 1 week stay with another couple and could not have been happier with Incommunicado. The owners thought of everything, the house was so clean and outfitted with beach towels, umbrella, chairs, and kayaks, we really didn't need to bring anything. We had 5 other couples at two other locations and they all loved this little place when we hosted a dinner. We were able to kayak in the inlet and we also rented a pontoon to Boca Grande and Cabbage Key. The pool was very clean and refreshing, but most of our time was spent on the beach. A beach we basically had to ourselves! What a relaxing vacation! We are already planning our next trip and Incommunicado will be our home for that week...you can bet on it!

This was a perfect place to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday. Our two boys (10 and 15) loved every minute. The home is simply perfect. Tracy has thought of everything. We felt as though it was "our beach house" for a week. We say gopher turtles, manatee, dolphins and found over 600 shark teeth. We plan on returning every other year. It was a memory vacation - - one we will treasure forever. Thank you Tracy!

Relaxing, Peaceful, and Beautiful!

This is our third visit at Incommunicado. And each stay has been top notch. First you have the island - shelling, kayaking, beautiful beach, swimming, tennis, pool access, birds to watch, breezes - this is truly a place to go to and unwind. But the icing on the cake is Incommunicado. The owners have thought of everything - there are kayaks you can use, tennis rackets, beach towels, a wagon for taking your stuff to the beach, chairs for the beach, board games, plenty of movies to watch and books to read. If you are traveling from far away, it is really nice not to have to pack the extra items. The home is immaculate and each year, there has been something that has been upgraded. The landscaping around the home gives you a feeling of privacy. One of my favorite spots is the hammock - there is always a breeze and I spent hours there reading and napping. There is a grill, a picnic table, a laundry room, an enclosed outdoor shower, and a table/bench that you can sort your seashells out on after you bring them back from the beach. There is a screened in porch on the back of the house that you can enjoy mealtime, game time, or just quiet time with a cup of coffee as you listen to the sounds of nature around you. And if you don't want to be completely away from civilization, there is high speed internet and satellite tv. And the price for all of this is exceedingly reasonable! Tracy thinks of everything to make you stay pleasurable. We can't wait to go back again!
