Holiday Rental House
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. Please note that this house is on LITTLE GASPARILLA which is not accessible by bridge...the only access is by private boat or water taxi. You leave your car at the marina on the mainland, and the water taxi drops you right at our dock where our concierge will meet you with his golf cart and transport your luggage and your groceries to the house. 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 ...Coconut Palm Cottage is brand new to the rental market! This charming home has been lovingly maintained by one owner for years.

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. This home offers guests a free kayak or paddle board rental AND a voucher for a golf cart rental with a stay of one week or more. Please note that the description misrepresents the number of bathrooms. There is one main bathroom in the house, with a tub/shower, sink and toilet. There is also a downstairs enclosed shower in the screened porch. There is also another toilet facility in the launder room. But there are technically NOT three bathrooms! GOLF CART VOUCHER: This home also provides a $100 golf cart voucher toward the rental of a golf cart from LGI Carts to explore the island during your stay (valid for stays of a week or more only). You use this certificate just like cash and the renter is still responsible for any additional rental fees, security deposit and any damage fees. The voucher cannot be redeemed for cash should the guest elect not to rent a golf cart or if LGI carts has no availability. Please make golf cart reservations early! INTERNET: There is no wired internet service on the island. There are a couple options for wifi. Most people just opt to use the mobile hotspots on their smartphones, especially if they have unlimited data or a large data plan. Cell service is excellent and that is the most convenient option...and it seems to work a bit faster. We can provide instructions on hot spotting if you are not familiar. If you do not have a smartphone, we can provide a Verizon jetpack for a fee, BUT YOU MUST REQUEST IT IN ADVANCE. We urge guests NOT to plan on using the jetpack for entertainment...no streaming music or videos, etc. It is more than adequate for checking emails, etc. You just need to let us know in advance so we can make sure we have a fully charged jetpack available for you. Just keep in mind that it is NOT the internet you are used to on the mainland. (It is especially helpful to remind kids and teenagers who are used to unlimited data!) We usually suggest that people download books and movies to their tablets or e-readers BEFORE coming to the island. HOLIDAY RATES: Please note that all there will be holiday rates applied to quotes for Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. More
