Burnt Store Marina condo description

THE GRANDE ISLE TOWERS are located on Prosperity Point, a separate gated island within Burnt Store Marina. Entering Grande Isle III, Unit 205, your first sight is the wide view facing west through the living room’s wall of floor to ceiling windows.

There you overlook the canal linking the marina’s north and south basins, a mangrove barrier island, and Charlotte Harbor.
THE SPACIOUS LIVING AREA features a large open-concept living room/dining area/kitchen.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We're New Yorkers, one of us a Canadian, and we discovered Burnt Store Marina in 2004. We bought our Grande Isle, Burnt Store Marina condo a year later and spent as much time as we could here before making it our permanent home in 2009.

                      Why the Owner Chose Burnt Store Marina:
                      Burnt Store Marina provides a total lifestyle for the golfer, tennis player, boater and fisherman located on protected Charlotte Harbor, a harbor second in size only to Tampa Bay along the west coast, with unparalleled ease of access to the Gulf of Mexico. Burnt Store Marina is close to two airports: SW Florida (Fort Myers) and Punta Gorda Airport. It is the midway point for sightseeing and touring between Sarasota to the north and Naples to south, each just over 60 miles away. The small, historic, Peace River town of Punta Gorda is 20 minutes north and provides dining, arts and main-street shopping. 20 minutes south is the Key West-style fishing village and arts community of Matlacha known for its art galleries, pastel-painted businesses, and 'the fishing-est bridge' where at any time in 24 hours some will be fishing. For malls and city entertainment Fort Myers is 35 minutes away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Burnt Store Marina provides boating and fishing at our doorstep, unparalleled water views, and easy boat access to the beautiful barrier islands and beaches of Cayo Costa, Captiva, Sanibel and Boca Grande. It provides a quiet, secure place to live and play and enjoy the unique natural setting that is SW Florida. Yet, a short drive away are the airports, highways, entertainment, and shopping of city and town life.
