Boca Grande house description

Set yourself apart from other beach rentals in one of the only single-family rental homes, with pool, available on Boca Grande. Entirely renovated a few years ago with new appliances, flat-panel TVs, furniture, fixtures, baths, flooring, and in-ground heated pool, it sleeps 6 comfortably, and up to 8 including sofa bed. The property is adjacent to a tropical nature preserve, which offers privacy for your vacation, not found in condos, townhomes or even most other single-family house rentals (you’re on Boca Grande to escape everyday life – don’t stay in a place where you’ll be disturbed by others). Enjoy meals on the screened-in lanai overlooking the new secluded heated pool which starts at zero depth, ideal for small children, reaching 5 feet for adults. One minute walk to the best Gulf beaches, great for swimming or shelling. Walk, jog or bike on the nearby paved path to anywhere on the island, including the quaint town with great restaurants and shopping. See link to video of the home.


Unrestricted beach access: As our guest you have legal access to a private footpath leading to the beach

Guest Feedback: Here is feedback from actual guests who stayed at the house, in response to our post-visit survey asking 'what was your favorite aspect of 414 Kidd?': “Everything was well above our expectations and we can't wait to come back!”, “The home is in a great location...one of our favorite places to vacation.”, “The proximity to the beach and downtown Boca Grande. Also the pool and kitchen were exceptional.”, “The beauty of the landscaping and decor of the home seems luxurious. The proximity to the beach is perfect and the pool is fabulous!”, and “It's hard to pick one. We loved everything about the place!”

                          Car: Recommended

                          Located on south end of Gasparilla Island which is secluded and offers the best beaches on the island (as our guest you have legal access to a private footpath leading to the beach). Only 10-15 min walk to town or travel like the locals on golf carts which is only a 5 minute ride (carts and bikes can be rented in town). Gasparilla Island offers great restaurants for fine dining or a casual lunch. Visitors say the island has a charm of traditional Florida that can't be found anywhere else. Great place for snow birds to relax or for couples with young children who want to spend quality time at the beach, pool or riding bikes.

                          Other Activities: Miles of paved bike paths

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: Our family loves vacationing in Boca Grande. Here's a picture of us on the back balcony.

                          Why the Owner Chose Boca Grande:
                          We've stayed in places all over Florida and can safely say that Boca Grande is one of a kind. It's special place because it feels like you're in a small community of friends who appreciate the island lifestyle. We like to call it the 'land time time forgot' because people are friendly and everything is pristine, like when we were kids. There are no chain stores or chain fast-food restaurants and no amusement park rides. Fun is made by going to the beach, playing in the pool and exploring the island.
