Comfortable home, ideal for families with children.
Warm hardwood floors throughout, except for tiled kitchen and bathrooms.
The master bedroom has a king, guest room has a queen and there is a third bedroom (attached to Master, you have to walk through this room to get to the master) with a full bed. There is a pack n play and two twin air mattresses for your use. The house is very spacious, sunny and super comfortable.
Seven feet deep heated private pool right out the family room and master bedroom doors. Screened in area off Master Bedroom and dining room. Both over look pool and face Gulf of Mexico.
Lots of sun. Bright friendly home. Super comfortable beds, just purchased brand new living room and dining room furniture in June of 2012.

Everything has been thought of in this home. There is nothing you will need while vacationing in this quiet home.
Deeded beach access directly across the street. Home is located a half mile south of the historic downtown, 307 Gasparilla St.
You won't be disappointed with the location. Pool, deck and siding were all remodeled a few years ago. Everything is well maintained.

Great Vacation Home
Great Vacation Home
Great Girls Weekend Getaway or Family Vacation. This was a girls weekend getaway for us. Great house, really well maintained, the beds were so comfortable. The rooms are decorated with a lot of attention to detail. Very well maintained home.Great heated pool with an enclosed porch off the Master Bedroom. You are directly across the street from an incredible beach, the water temp was around 80 degrees. Leave your car in the driveway and do what everyone else does...rent a golf cart and you are off to see some beautiful homes, great restaurants and good shopping. There is no reason to leave the island everything is at your fingertips. Very relaxing trip I cannot wait to go back.

Our daughter was married at Boca Grande on the south beach, 11/09/2013. We have family in Florida and have always visited Boca since she was two. Finding the house was the perfect place for the celebration. It is a beautiful beach house. The living, kitchen, and dining areas were open and airy. The lanai’s and heated pool were the perfect addition for the destination wedding. Everything was exactly what we hoped for and allowed us to enjoy the preparation for the fond memories of that day. It was the perfect place for our daughter to get ready for her big day. This fabulous home is close to everything on and off the island. We recommend it to anyone for a family getaway or a quiet time alone. Thank you for making your home our home for a wonderful time and a milestone in our life.

The Perfect Relaxing Getaway
The Perfect Relaxing Getaway
This property had exactly what we were looking for! The home is spacious, and it has everything you need! We cooked dinner at home two nights, and the kitchen had plenty of dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc. The beach is a short walk and easily accessible, and we were so thankful to have the pool at the house when we wanted to cool down. There are plenty of pool chairs, floats, and beach towels. The home also has two large screened in porches, with a table and chairs for eating outside, or plenty of chairs for relaxing and watching the sunset. We walked in to town to eat at the Loose Caboose, and everything was very convenient. We were looking for a relaxing vacation to enjoy the slow pace of Boca Grande, and this home was just the ticket! I really can't say enough good things about it. I would highly recommend it to my friends and family.

My husband and I were in serious need of some R & R and this what just what the doctor ordered. We have rented other homes through VRBO in other places over the years but this was our favorite. The room sizes are great, you're close to the beach, close to town and have a pool for the windy days. We like to pack light so having laundry is a must. We spent the days either on the beach, poolside or exploring the island and having a cocktail on the screened in porch before we went out for dinner each night. It was really a comfortable home. And the owner was available to answer my questions.

We were lucky to find this lovely home for our getaway! The beach here is beautiful, we love the Gulf, and practically right outside the door. It made a wonderful way to start the day with a stroll along the surf carrying our mugs of coffee. Boca Grande is so easy to get around, walk or ride bikes into town for great restaurants, shops and delicious ice cream. We rode the bicycles or walked everywhere and didn't feel a need to rent a golf cart during our visit. The house itself is really a home away from home, with everything we needed to make our time there comfortable. Everything is well kept, clean and beautifully decorated. The screened in porch was a lovely place to sit after dinner and enjoy the fresh sea air. We enjoyed cooking our own breakfast and a few dinners, the kitchen was well appointed so we had all that we needed I would certainly recommend this house and Boca Grande to our friends - the only negative was that we had to leave too soon!

My husband and I were in Boca Grande from August 11 to 25th 2012 and we really enjoyed our holidays! At this time of the year, Boca Grande is very quiet, we had the beach almost to ourselves, the weather was fantastic and although we heard thunder almost every day and saw lightnings almost every night, we had only 1 evening of rain. I later found out that the locals call Boca Grande <The Dome>, now we know why! The house was very comfortable, the owner Steff was great to deal with. She answered my text within MINUTES! Always helpful and patient with all my questions. We were only steps away from the beach and the house had all the amenities you would require. If I could suggest something to add would be for more basic things such as toilet paper and garbage bags.... we had 1 roll in each bathroom and 2 garbage bags for the 2 weeks! No big deal, it was enough to keep us going until we got to the grocery store. The only other thing you should be aware is that every time you get off the island, it will cost you $5 toll to re-enter, therefore you simply have to plan and make a list when you go off to run errands. But I cannot emphasis enough how this island is worth it! I would recommend this home and this island to any of my friends and family!

This vacation home was exactly what you want for a family! The house was pristine and the renters made sure they offered everything that a family with young kids would need and enjoy! It was without a doubt one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we've had and look forward to returning next year!!!!

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with Boca Grande when we were dating. Nine years ago we were fortunate enough to be able to buy our 'little piece of paradise' on Gasparilla Island. We live in NJ and our kids count the days between school breaks so we can travel to our special home.
Why the Owner Chose Boca Grande:
We purchased a home on Boca Grande because the location is ideal. We don't have to leave the country to get that 'island' feel. Yet we feel miles away from reality when we are on 'the island'. Florida is nice year round and Boca Grande is even nicer. When we vacation we don't want a big city feel with lots of action and shopping. We want to relax and unwind and spend quality family time. Boca Grande was the perfect choice. Every time we are fortunate enough to visit our home (about seven times a year) we seem to fall in love with it even more, if that is possible?
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property is unique to other homes on the island because it's one of the only homes in our 'golden beach' neighborhood that has a screened in porch that faces the Gulf of Mexico, instead of other homes on the street. We are only one home back from Gulf Blvd/Gasparilla Road. Even though we are not beach front (a dream of ours) the home still has that beachy feeling. Please check out our pictures to get a visual view. You will not be distracted by other homes, the home really stands alone. There is an empty triple lot across the street and you can watch the Gopher tortoises enjoy the cactus right out the dining room windows. A favorite activity of ours. Just don't get your golf cart stuck in the sand on the lane if checking out the views (we did that once). We furnished our home to feel like a home away from home. All of our guests and friends have told us how comfortable their stays have been. We've decorated it with fun tropical colors and the warm wood floors give it that home away from home feel. We didn't buy the typical 'renter' furniture. Our couches, beds and tables are all user friendly and comfortable. We hope you feel the same way.
