Little Gasparilla Island Florida/Gulf-Front Cottage on Beach! Wi-Fi, Dock & Pets

Located in: Placida


As of May 16, 2020, the governor has lifted the rental ban however it is now up to the individual counties to determine the best date to re-open. Charlotte County plans were submitted May 19 and we hope to hear any day!

Peacock Lane Cottage is a Gulf-front cottage right on the beach!

Take the 10-15 minute Water Taxi or bring your own boat to the magical 'Little Gasparilla Island'.
Little Gasparilla Island is a private, bridge-less barrier island accessible "only" by boat.
Pirates Water Taxi runs 365 days a year or you can bring your own boat as we have deep water dockage.
Park at Eldred's Marina located on the Boca Grande Causeway. (6.00/day)

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!
There are no stores, cars on Little Gasparilla Island, only sandy paths that you can explore by foot or golf cart. (We have a cute gift shop called 'Gone Fishin' and is near the cottage. Open Tuesday - Sunday.

Enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and incredible sunsets from the front and rear decks of this tastefully furnished and charming Key West style cottage.
Enjoy the 'private' front yard surrounded with many coconut trees which offer a cool breeze and shade. Fall asleep each night to the sound of the surf. The best part about this cottage is that it's not only a romantic place but the perfect family getaway too.

Pack 'very' light as the cottage has a new extra large washer/dryer. Bring all your food and goodies with you as there are no stores on the island however in early 2020 there is a new grocery service being offered and is very reasonable so no need to leave if you run out of food! (More details upon booking)
If you need some entertainment, or other off-island activity, you are only a 10-15 minute ride by Water Taxi back to the marina on the mainland.
Please note: Our water is "excellent" and there is NO need to bring bottled water with you.

We offer 'FREE' Wi-Fi with a Verizon Jet Pack. (Details upon booking)

Water Taxi 'day rates' are 10.00 per person (each way) and runs 8:30am-5pm. (No fee for pups) Later or earlier pickups 'always' available for a small surcharge.
If you opt to rent or bring your own boat, we have a good deep water dock that is shared by only the few cottages on our lane. Just a quick 3-4 minute walk to the cottage and you have arrived! (Dock can accommodate up to about a 26' boat with no problem)

We offer a 'complimentary' Concierge/Greeter on your 'arrival day' with a young man who will meet you at the dock. He will bring you, your luggage and groceries to the cottage.

"New for 2020": Many cottage owners charge for trash pick up and since we want you to have the best experience possible, you do not have to worry about lugging trash back to the mainland any longer. We have lined up trash pick up late Friday mornings which will allow you to get rid of your week's worth of trash and 'only' have to take a small bag back to the mainland when you check out on Saturday morning.

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 from the dock or right on the Gulf!
Bring your fishing poles and fire up the BBQ grill!

We do allow a well behaved pup with a non-refundable fee. Will send you our simple pet etiquette guidelines upon booking.
Positively 'NO' aggressive breeds or extra large dogs permitted. Sorry, no cats.

***Should you like to reserve a week with us, (And we'd love to have you!) please be sure to put the exact dates you would like to visit on the inquiry otherwise VRBO will indicate that the week is unavailable. :o(
You can always change your dates at a later time but we do not want you to receive an email from them indicating a week is blocked when it is actually available.

**PLEASE NOTE: Our weeks run "SATURDAY - SATURDAY" however in September - early November we have flexibility for arrival and departure dates (4 night minimum) with a small up-charge.
Cottage sleeps a MAXIMUM OF 4. (Sorry no exceptions)
