About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
With beaches just 50' away the sights, sounds and smells of the ocean are right on the back doorstep. Facing west, the property gets all day sun and spectacular sunsets throughout the year.
The master bedroom has a high profile king bed, multiple sets of 100% cotton sheets and a connecting master bathroom. Glass sliding windows into a lanai provide wonderful outside views. The 2nd bedroom has twin beds, a wall mounted flatscreen TV and an adjacent bathroom. The kitchen has been recently updated and is fully equipped with all cooking and eating utensils. Just off the kitchen is a sitting area, with sliding glass doors facing the tennis courts, which provides a great place to enjoy a morning coffee. The living room is spacious with a wall mounted 42 inch Sony flatscreen TV, a DVD player and full HD programming. Secure, high speed Wireless Internet service is provided throughout the unit.
The screened-in, open-air lanai faces the Gulf and is a really nice place to relax and have drinks at the end of a day. A westerly exposure not only provides great sunsets but there is quite commonly a gentle on-shore breeze that is really refreshing. Vegetation and wildlife just outside the lanai are uniquely southern. Turtles can be frequently seen traipsing around the property, dolphin sightings are common and occasionally manatees can be seen in the ocean, which are incredibly large, but gentle, sea cows.
The unit comes with a washer/dryer, central AC with an accessible thermostat and humidity control, several variable speed ceiling fans for enhanced air circulation, a dining table for 6, a communal gas BBQ and an outside deck facing the ocean which is a really nice place for lunch when the weather is not too hot.
The property is part of the Boca Grande Club which is a gated, 62 acre private residential community on the Gulf side of Gasparilla island. Amenities offered include the casual 'Upper Deck' restaurant, a more formal 'Clubhouse' restaurant at beach level, 3 pools with complimentary towel service, a 'Tiki Bar', poolside lunch and drink service, beach chaises and umbrellas around the pools and along the beaches, an expanded and very popular fitness facility, 8 clay tennis courts with 2 tennis pros 'in-season' offering organized drills and matches, a small retail tennis shop and a spacious Library/Quiet Room that has books, a TV, comfortable couches and a piano for those times when guests prefer a little 'out of the way' quiet time.
Programs offered at the Club include Yoga, Aquatics, Zumba, Bridge and Circuit Training. Bicycles and golf carts can both be rented which are excellent ways to explore the island.
Boca Grande (formally known as Gasparilla Island) is located off the southwest coast of Florida, north of Naples and south of Sarasota. It is part of the 'barrier chain' of islands that includes Sanibel and Captiva. Connected to mainland by a short, tolled ($6) causeway, what makes Boca Grande unique are it's miles of beaches and it's tranquil, relaxed, Old Florida feel: no highrises, no malls, no traffic lights, and no neon signs. Despite it's small size, the town on the island is charming with excellent shopping and several very good restaurants.
This is a higher end island with property values ranging from $400,000 up to $15 Million. The unit, the Club, and the island offer privacy, relaxation and rejuvenation....a fantastic vacation get away.

Why the Owner Chose Boca Grande, FL, USA:
We live in a large North American city where dealing with traffic, stress and frustration is a part of daily life. Boca Grande is at the opposite end of the stress spectrum....the antidote to big city living. The ocean, the beaches, the people and even the vegetation promote relaxation and a refreshingly slow pace. Prior to buying on Boca we'd looked and stayed at a number of Florida locations. We concluded that the east coast of Florida was much busier than we wanted, that Naples and Sarasota, despite their beauty, were too much like the city, and that Longboat Key and Sanibel and Captiva islands, while closer to what we were looking for, just seemed that much bigger and busier than what Boca Grande had to offer. Boca is a very 'upscale' island, and though we really like it's 'Old Florida' feel (which we find very appealing) we really appreciate that the island has all of the conveniences of modern living including some great restaurants. We're pretty active people and while Boca gives us the opportunity to run, go to the gym, play tennis, golf, fish or go boating, it also gives us the opportunity to spend hours at the beach walking, reading or simply lying in the sun.....which are all pretty nice alternatives.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The first thing we do when we arrive in Boca and the last thing we do before we leave is to walk the beaches. Regarded as some the best beaches in America, they are truly spectacular. The walk to the beach from our place takes about a minute. If we turn right when we get there, we can walk for about an hour until the beach 'runs out' at a private residence's boat dock. And if we turn left, it takes a couple of hours to effectively walk all the way to town. We've only ever done that once and the bottoms of our feet hurt for days. Dolphins are a reasonably frequent occurrence on our beach walks and manatees, which are large, spectacular sea animals, can be seen just off the shoreline on very special occasions. Boca is also known as the 'tarpon capital of the world'. Tarpon are reputedly one of the best sporting fish there are. Weighing in at 100-200 lbs they put up 'fights' that when caught are pretty thrilling. We're not 'fisher people' but we've arranged to do this several times over the years with some of the island captains and the experience has always been pretty exciting. It's all 'catch and release' so these magnificent creatures are thrown back just after being caught.
