Welcome to Little Gasparilla Island (LGI). If you have never been here before, you are in for an amazing experience and a memory making vacation.

Peacock Lane Cottage is a Gulf-front cottage on the beach! The front yard is sand and shells and it only takes a few seconds to jump right in the beautiful Gulf water!

Take the 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. (8.00/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 or cars on Little Gasparilla Island, only sandy paths that you can explore by foot or golf cart. (Golf cart is not necessary)

We do have a small artist’s gift shop who is an Island resident, just a 5 minute walk from cottage. (By appointment)

Enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and incredible sunsets from the front and rear decks of this tastefully furnished charming Key West style cottage.

Enjoy the ‘private’ front yard and private back deck surrounded by many coconut palms 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.

2 Large Weber Charcoal grills. Bring your briquettes for a tasty dinner on the shore!

Pack ‘very’ light as the cottage has an extra large washer/dryer. Bring all your food and goodies with you or we now have an excellent grocery service so no need to leave if you run out of food ‘or’ want your groceries delivered upon your arrival!

If you need some entertainment, or other off-island activity, you are only a 15 minute ride by Water Taxi back to the marina on the mainland.

Please note: Our Island drinking water is “excellent” and there is NO need to bring bottled water with you. (We have no recycling on the island) It is tested daily and is delicious!

We offer Wi-Fi with a Verizon Jet Pack. This is not as reliable as your home internet but with no broadband or cable on LGI, it is perfect for checking emails, websites, etc.

Water Taxi ‘day rates’ are 15.00 per person (each way) and runs 8:30am-5pm. (No fee for pup) Later or earlier pickups always available with a surcharge.

If you opt to rent or bring your own boat, we have a good deep water dock that is shared by the few cottages on our lane. Just a 4 minute walk to the cottage from the dock.

Dock can accommodate up to a 26′ boat should you decide to rent one.

Please let us know if you will be bringing a boat so we can share the simple dock rules.

We offer a ‘complimentary’ Concierge/Greeter on your ‘arrival day’ with a young Island man who will meet you at the dock. Bret will bring you, your luggage and groceries to the cottage. (Additional details upon booking)

Many cottage owners charge for trash pick up but we don’t want you to worry about lugging a weeks worth of trash back to the mainland so have a scheduled Friday AM pick up which will allow you to get rid of your trash so you only have to take a small bag back to the mainland when you check-out Saturday morning by 10AM. (Small drop fee at Marina)

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 allow “1” well behaved pup (60Lb. or under) with a non-refundable $100.00 pet fee. We will send you our simple pet etiquette guidelines upon booking.

Positively NO aggressive breeds or extra-large dogs permitted. Sorry, no cats.

*We MUST know if you are bringing a pup*

Sadly, due to some past pup owners not respecting our pup policy, or the Island rules, we will ask you to sign an acknowledgment indicating you will follow our simple pup guidelines.

If you are a smoker this will ‘NOT’ be the cottage for you as this is a 100% NON-SMOKING property. You will be asked to leave immediately if you violate this rule and will be charged the 400.00 on file with VRBO.

You/we can always change your dates at a later time (if week is available) 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 and have a 7 night minimum.

We may have the ability to offer a 4-5 night minimum outside of Saturday to Saturday during the “off season”. (Late September – first week of November only)

Please send an ‘inquiry’ about desired dates and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Peacock Lane Cottage sleeps a “MAXIMUM OF 4 overnight guests” and ask that you respect our ‘limit of 4’ policy. (This includes a TOTAL of adults, children and toddlers).

Please note: We require a signed a lease agreement once you have made your booking. This will have all the particulars of the cottage: Cottage address, our names and address, what our responsibilities are as owners, payment due dates, etc.

It is a simple lease agreement which I will email to you shortly after you have reserved your week.

Please note, there is an up-charge over Memorial Day and July 4 weeks due to high demand.

We welcome everyone but our cottage is not handicap accessible as there are only deep, soft, sandy paths and motorized scooters or wheel chairs will not be able to move about. We apologize for any inconvenience, however, we can offer some great alternate suggestions for nearby beach locations which will be better suited for your personal needs.

We look forward to having you and will email our Welcome Letter to you several weeks prior to your visit.

Thank you and Welcome to the Magical Little Gasparilla Island.
