Boca Grande condo description

Greet each morning by collecting shells on your own gorgeous island beach. In the evening, gaze over lush gardens to the Gulf of Mexico as you toast the sunset. Your condo is a corner unit on a raised first floor (above the garages), so you’ll have complete privacy with no foot traffic going past your door. This charming smoke-free condo has new appliances, big screen HD TV, DVD, stereo with an i-Pod port, Wi-Fi, washer/dryer and AC. The master bedroom features a king size bed, full bathroom, walk-in closet and a TV. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a private entrance to the condo bathroom.

The shelling is unparalleled on Gasparilla Island, and your beach is never crowded. You’ll be surrounded by bird life, sand dunes and sea oats as the sound of the surf recharges your batteries. Boca Grande is a laid back, old-Florida community in the Gulf of Mexico. There are no high-rise buildings, fast food restaurants, malls, or stoplights. But the island has all the amenities you’ll need; restaurants, grocery stores, art galleries, bike/golf-cart rentals, quaint shops, a hardware store and paved paths for your bike or golf cart. You’ll be enchanted driving through the tunnel of banyan trees as you explore the time capsule town of Boca Grande.

Your accommodations feature a screened-in porch with lovely, faux wicker table and chairs, where you'll overlook exotic, tropical foliage and enjoy the sound of the surf with your breakfast. Adjacent to this lanai is an open sun deck. Your kitchen and dining room contains everything you’ll need, whether your menu is wine and pizza or a five-course dinner.

Sea Oats Condos offer a lavish garden and courtyard with pool, hot tub, grills, chaise lounges, and two tennis courts right out your door. It is common to see anoles/chameleons, tortoises and exotic bird-life as you take your short stroll through the garden to the pool or beach.

Yes, you can leave your problems on shore when you cross over the bridge to your island paradise!

                  Year Purchased: 1984

                  About: I'm Jan Stroup and my parents and aunt and uncle originally purchased this condo in 1984. We've had many good times here over the years, and I'm so happy my wife and I were able to buy it in 2007. We have done several renovations, but have left a little of the vintage old Florida charm here too. My family loves the shelling and bird watching on Boca Grande. There are many reference books at the condo for identifying shells and birds, if you are interested. We are also avid readers and have a large, wonderful library there, so if you're a reader, you'll probably find something you're going to like on the shelf. I have an unusual combination of jobs; I am a community banker and a guitar player. These are two jobs that seldom share the same sentence, but I feel lucky to have two such interesting and challenging jobs, and I love 'em both. I live in Minneapolis with my wife who is a teacher, our teenage son and our dog,Ivy. Every time we come to our condo, we find new things to do. We always love kayaking with a little picnic lunch over to nearby Bird Island. We have seen a number of manatees and dolphins in the area. The Englewood, Sarasota, Port Charlotte area offers just about anything we would like to do. There are many wild-life sanctuaries in the area that we enjoy. We enjoy an occasional all-day trip to Orlando as well. We also enjoy spending much of our time on the beach and just hanging out. I hope you get the same relaxed feel from our condo that we do.

                  Why Boca Grande:
                  My parents and aunt and uncle owned it, so I knew it was a great place in a great location, with everything we wanted. I am happy that we can keep adding memories to this legacy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We particularly enjoy the break this island offers from a hectic pace; with fewer people and more privacy--even during spring break the beaches are not crowded. We love and appreciate the opportunities to enjoy the ocean and the island flora and wild-life.
