Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

I rented this beautiful home to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family. We had a wonderful time enjoying our morning coffee in the screened in porch overlooking the private felt like we were in a luxurious tree house...just spectacular! My sister and I rented bikes and enjoyed a daily morning ride along the bike/cart path. Our days were spent at the beach enjoying the perfect weather and then back to the pool late afternoon for happy hour and dinner prep. We took the golf cart and some beach chairs to the beach every evening after dinner to catch the sunset. We had a wonderful time and i want to thank you Izzy for sharing your beautiful home with us!

A Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My grandsons and I always go to Boca Grande for a week during the summer. Stayed at a new place this year. Very nice and extremely well furnished. Plenty of towels, however, very few washclothes (you might want to take a couple). Very secluded and private, which we enjoyed. Tons of things to do in Boca Grande, but just be sure to rent a golf cart. It's the easiest way around the island and night rides are great. Plenty of good places to eat. We would definitely go back to this home.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for coming to my house and so glad you liked it. We love it too and I will definitely be sure to purchase more washclothes! And, I do agree that a golf cart is very fun on BG. Izzy Goff

A Private Oasis, Close to Town and Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a Christmas Week Rental at 212 Pilot Street - Wow, what a lovely home and what a perfect location! Pluses include a big spacious living room/dining room area, modern kitchen, a screened-in porch/lanai, comfortable beds, fans in all rooms, central A/C, a pool and a golf cart! The property is very private, surrounded by mango trees and privet. The artwork on the walls were particularly beautiful. We were just minutes from the town of Boca Grande and across the street from the public beach, making sunset watching a daily tradition. We were delighted to find lots of spices and condiments in the pantry, but Hudsons in town has everything you need. Stop at Publix in Cape Haze on your way to the rental for a bigger shop. Thank you, Izzy, for opening your home to our family. We look forward to returning soon!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into the door, we could tell this was a very special place! We have stayed in other beach rentals, on other beaches, but this is the one that we want to come back to! This home is well cared for and loved, and it is evident in all the decor. It is comfortably furnished, and has plenty of space for everyone. The artwork hung in every room makes it even more special and makes you feel right at home. And they allow pets!

In addition, the pool area is beautifully landscaped, with lounge chairs to enjoy while sipping on ice cold lemonade. And the golf cart made it so easy to zip around town, hitting the local shops for souvenirs, food and ice cream. It is a quaint little town and the shop owners are so friendly and treated us so special!

Lastly is the beach. Such an amazing white sand beach. And the water is really as good as it looks in the picture! Turquoise and crystal clear! We saw dolphins, stingrays, and lots of sand dollars. And hardly any other people!

We love this home, this island, and hope to be back very soon!

We found Paradise in Boca Grande

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our week in Boca Grande. The home is beautiful, and it was the

perfect spot for spending a week in paradise. The weather was spectacular,

the beaches beautiful and the golf cart was a blast. I've told everyone,

it's hard to not have fun when you are driving around in a golf cart both

day and night! The house is very well maintained, the lanai is lovely for morning coffee, meals and a nighttime glass of wine. The pool is perfect for relaxing either before or after some time on the beach. My husband, son

and friends chartered a delightful fishing trip with a local fisherman and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets on the beach almost every night. All in all it was one of

our most memorable vacations and we will definitely go back.
