Take the Water Taxi or bring your own boat to magical 'Little Gasparilla Island'.
'Peacock Lane Cottage' is a Beachfront cottage on the Gulf. Little Gasparilla Island is a private, bridge-less barrier island accessible only by boat. There is a Water Taxi that runs 365 days a year or you can bring your own boat.
There are no roads, stores or cars, only sandy paths that you can explore by foot or golf 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! Leave all your cares behind!
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 (The cottage has an extra large washer/dryer) and bring all your food and goodies with you as there are no stores on the island. If you need some entertainment, food, 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.
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 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 named Bret who will meet you at Dock 21. He will bring you, your luggage and groceries to the cottage.
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 100.00 fee.
