Coquina Cove


Property Details

Updated: Dec 19, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Beautiful Gulf views! 100% Natural Florida!

Coquina Cove is your very own private tropical oasis in the sun.

This wonderful, impeccably kept, 2 bedroom 2 bath lagoon-front single-family home

offers great Gulf and water views from every room, warm gulf

breezes and your own private dock. Decorated in a tropical

island style you'll enjoy quiet walks down the beach with hardly a

person in sight! No crowds here, just miles of unspoiled, 100%

natural Florida (the way it used to be!). World renowned shelling,

fantastic sunsets, bird watching galore, kayaking right out the

back door, dolphins, gopher tortoise, and a lively lagoon where

fish jump all day long. Don Pedro State park is a short walk

down the beach. You'll want to capture the Island's charm by

traveling via golf cart, we rarely use cars here.

Bring your boat or rent one for the ultimate in Florida lifestyle. The

private dock will accommodate a single boat up to 22 feet. Like

to fish? Fish right off the dock or try your luck surf fishing or book

a charter with one of the local guides for a thrilling day of

sportfishing or backwater challenges. Trout, Redfish, Snook,

Tarpon and Grouper are just a few of the many species that call

our waters home.

Don Pedro Island (aka Palm Island) is a barrier island and a stones

throw from the mainland. You'll arrive via a short car ferry ride

that takes about 3 minutes. Our island has a terrific resort that

offers a casual restaurant, pizza place, ice cream shoppe,

convenience store and a pirate show for the kids. The island is

almost all single family homes so you'll quickly find it has a

pristine non-commercial family feel. There are no large

high-rise resorts, beach bars or traffic and noise. If you're

looking for that place in the sun that you can actually hear the

wind whistle through the palms -- you've found your place.

Off island you'll be close to restaurants, shops, golf courses and

world famous Boca Grande as well as other attractions. As we

like to say ... civilization is close but not too close. Boca Grande

offers exclusive shopping, dining and sightseeing. By boat you

can reach Cayo Costa Island State Park and Cabbage Key

where Jimmy Buffet was inspired to write "Cheeseburger In

Paradise." Do it all, or do nothing at all, that's the island

lifestyle. It's laid back, always casual (leave your tie at home) and

Florida at its best.

Sleeps 4 comfortably, 5 with use of the pull out sofa. No

smoking. Pets allowed with owner's permission and additional

pet deposit. Fenced area for your convenience. Spacious, open

floorplan. Fully equipped kitchen. Nice screened patio that opens

into the living room. Master bedroom with private bath. Satellite

TV, hammock, hot tub and more!

Don Pedro is an island experience like no other. Truly Old Florida at it's best. Come and visit our island and see why so many have fallen in love with this little slice of paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a blast staying at Coquina Cove. It was super clean, well stocked and had a great location smack dab between the Gulf of Mexico and a wide peaceful lagoon. The beach was a short walk across a sand road and we could launch the provided kayaks right out the back door! The beach was never crowded which was hard to believe -- but true. Well decorated with nice furniture, not the rental furniture you normally see. Pet friendly and super clean which can be hard to come by. It was simply wonderful and we plan to come back soon! – G&H, Tampa

Wonderful "Quick" Beach Getaway

My husband and I truly enjoyed our 'quick' getaway to Coquina Cove. The property was charming, clean, well-maintained, and had all the extras anyone could want. AND, it is Pet Friendly!

The owner, Julie, was so very helpful in answering all our questions, and I feel like I have a new friend. She is a delight.

We had a wonderful time, and will definitely be back for another Old Florida beach getaway.

We really did not want to leave. The owner Julie was an absolute pleasure to deal with and so helpful with information. The house is so thoughtfully set up, we honestly felt like we were borrowing a house from a friend. We’ve never rented a vacation house so beautifully furnished, perfectly equipped, comfortable, and clean. I recommend renting the golf cart, it was treat to take a quiet ride to dinner with beautiful surroundings. The beach was so beautiful and peaceful, we saw 4 people on the beach in 5 days! Even the short path to the beach is beautiful. We saw a gopher turtle in the front yard and all kinds of birds and fish from the dock. Our little dogs were in heaven too. The small fenced yard area was perfect to have a small break from the leashes. We will be back again!! Unless we win the lotto soon, then we’ll be neighbors!

The house was impeccably kept and the extra amenities were very much appreciated! From the kayaks, beach toys/floats, beach towels, beach chairs, washer/dryer and so much more this was the perfect beach getaway for our family of 5 (2 adults/3 kids). Julie was a wonderful owner who quickly answered any questions that we had. I would highly recommend this property!!

Perfect Beach Location

The cottage is very accurately described and photographed. incredibly clean and well maintained too! The rental process is easy and lots of information provided in advance. I loved being so well informed. It was wonderful to relax in the hot tub while the dogs enjoyed the yard. The beach is beautiful and unspoiled. Golf cart is a must! We had one evening and whole day of rain, and were glad to discover the cottage was stocked with a good selection of movies. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful, peaceful setting to relax and unwind. We highly recommend!

I'm hesitant to review because I'd love to keep this as our own little secret getaway.... But that's not fair to the owners ;) This location is simply heaven! So quiet, so relaxing and so charming. And Julie the owner, is incredible. Very friendly and easy to work with. We've rented a lot of homes on different barrier islands around SWFL and Julie is by far my favorite to work with! Don Pedro Island is a peaceful and naturally beautiful barrier island, simply unspoiled! The home is very comfortable and stocked with everything one would need on vacation. The downstairs patio/bar/hot tub and fenced area is perfect for grilling, cocktails and playing with the dogs. Did I mention the fenced area? Yes! Nice touch. Done well and tastefully, the fenced area is ideal for the dogs... we are on vacation after all... Don Pedro Island may not be for those seeking nightlife or action, but for those of us that need to get away to unplug and relax, this is simply heaven on earth.

Truly Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a magical week at Coquina Cove on Don Pedro Island. The house was lovely and far exceeded our expectations. The property is so well maintained and all the extras--the tiki bar, the kayaks, the beach gear, the outdoor shower, the hot tub, the bikes, and the golf cart---kept all of us happily entertained. We loved the location and saw so much wildlife-- loggerhead turtles, ibis, dolphins, manatees, rays, gopher tortoise, lizards-- that it truly felt like paradise. We travelled with two teenage boys and two dogs and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our week of island life. No one wanted to leave when it was time to go. The owners are terrific and their love for the area is evident in the care they give to their home and to their guests.

Owner's Response: Allyson - Thanks for emailing the fantastic video of the sea turtle hatchlings making their way to the water. What an awesome thing to have witnessed. We're so glad you all enjoyed the island as much as we do. Thank You! Julie & Dale
