Boca Grande condo description
Newly updated Unit # 75 in the Boca Grande North complex is a special unit that invites you to ' COME & RELAX FOR A GREAT VACATION!!!'
This complex has a SPECTACULAR view of Little Gasparilla Pass and the Gulf of Mexico. You can enjoy the views from the west-facing lanai or exit the lanai with private connecting staircase to the seawall, and put your toes in the warm, clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If you are a little nimble, you can hop off 4 ft high seawall into about 18 inches of water at low tide and go wading. At high tide, its about 30 inches deep. From the seawall, we've seen bottle-nosed dolphins, snook, jacks, manatees and spotted leopard rays. It's AWESOME!
The unit is impeccably furnished & newly updated. The owners like to spend as much time as possible on Boca Grande so they've furnished the condo luxuriously and they take care of every little detail.
Whether you are a person who enjoys an active vacation or a very laid back experience, you will not be disappointed by a vacation to Boca Grande. Sunbathing beach, pool, hot tub, tennis court and fishing all on premises.
Some of the activities that you can enjoy on the island are:
BOATING - Owners enjoy boating with family and friends & bring their boat down from Sarasota via Intercoastal with private boat slips for rent across from unit. Fishing boats are available for rent from Boca Boats and other nearby marinas.
You can rent kayaks at Grande Tours, nearby. On the gulf side, you can paddle out to Little Gasparilla Island, to do beachcombing for shells and shark's teeth.
FISHING - GREAT fishing on the property at the various beaches,sea walls, & bridges. GREAT spot for tarpon season and 'Big game' fishing on Boca Grand which also include shark, grouper, snapper in Boca Grande Pass, along the Gulf beaches, and offshore in the Gulf. Backwater fishing for speckled seatrout, snook, and redfish is truly exceptional. Boat parking and boat ramp nearby & rental boats for fishing and pleasure cruising are available.
THE BIKE PATH - on Boca Grande, an old railroad grade was converted to a bike trail that runs practically the entire length of Gasparilla Island. The town center, Boca Grande, is about five miles down the bike trail. The trail goes past the town center, all the way to the old light house and museum at Boca Grande Pass, 7 miles from the Boca Grande North complex. So, it's great fun to bicycle, roller blade, or run around in golf carts on the island.
GOLF- readily accessible just off-island Rotunda, 10 minutes away
Boat slips, bikes, golf carts, kayaks, and other services can be rented or arranged throught the onsite Boca Grande North office.
So, you can enjoy fishing, boating, biking, shelling, kayaking, swimming, ... all the 'ing's' in the world, or you can just hang out on the porch with a good book under a ceiling fan ... 'veg-ing'. YOU JUST CAN'T BEAT IT!!!
Sarasota (SRQ) is closest at about 45-50 minutes, followed by Fort Myers (RSW), then Tampa (TPA).

This is the best home away from home ! Our stay was awsome. We enjoyed the back porch area with a beautiful sunset every evening. We went swimming, walking and even rented a golf cart and toured the island. Our son didn't want to leave ! We will definitely be coming back.

Beautiful Condo. Best view in Boca!

Took our two teenagers to this beautiful condo for the weekend. So clean and well kept. The view is amazing and we truly enjoyed the island and its adventures. My son caught so many fish and saw some of the largest tarpon ever! We rented a golf cart and drove to town for ice cream and a sunset dinner. The whole family enjoyed the BBQ located near the condo and breakfast on the lanai. We are planning to return soon! Thank you Keith & Francene for sharing a slice of heaven with us.

Our stay at Boca Grande North, from May 31st to June 8th was really a great experience. It was like being at a 5 star resort with a touch of home. The unit is clean, well furnished, spacious and so comfortable We spent a lot of time at the back porch especially at sunset time - incredibly beautiful- picture perfect. Swimming, fishing, walking, sleeping to our hearts content, playinf tennis, hanging out at the pool and enjoying the many views of the sea were only a few of the special things we enjoyed. Driving in a golf cart one can rent was a blast especially at night; we drove down to Gasparilla twice. This place is one of Florida's best kept secrets. Can't forget to mention we saw tarpons, snook, a manatee, dolphins, a turtle and many birds. We're seriously thinking of going back there very, very soon. All we have to take is our food and clothes. Definitely recommended to relatives and friends!

We just returned from staying at this condo and had the most wonderful time.The pictures don't really do justice to this place! It is so beautiful! Extremely clean, tastefully decorated and with everything you would need/ have in your own house. It is truly a home away from home. We will definitely come back and we are telling all our friends about the magic of this particular condo and of Boca Grande in general. There is plenty to do, from biking to canoing, boating, or simply relax in the warm waters, but above all, enjoy the amazing sunsets that this place offers. There is a pool across the street, and if you like fishing this is the place to be. We saw tarpons swimming right in front of us. We usually drove further south to go to the beach, and we liked that it wasn't crowded at all. The small little town has restaurants and small shops that will make your stay even more enjoyable. The owners of the condo were awesome as well, and we felt very welcomed. They were available for us with any questions we had. Thanks Keith and Francene!!!
