Updated condo with paint job, new mattresses, new MB carpeting, new linens, new couch, new DVDs and MB TV, and we are now a gated community. Please review my calendar and fee information before making an inquiry - I try to keep my calendar as up to date as possible for your convenience and I provide full disclosure on all fees so you know what your fully-loaded cost is before booking. I also have provided a detailed map so you know exactly where the condo is (don't worry, its in a great place - Boca Grande!) NO PETS and 3 night minimum due to Condo Association rules.

Great location on the most unspoiled island in Florida with a world-class view of the Gulf of Mexico overlooking Gasparilla Pass. 2 bed, 2 bath condo on the second floor with a full kitchen, full size washer-dryer, and large lanai with a table and 2 lounge chairs. Master has a king bed and a direct view of the Gulf, walk-in closet, powder room, and en-suite, 2-sink master bathroom. Guest bedroom has a queen and a twin for maximum couples/kids flexibility, with a living room pullout couch too.

Description Cont. : The unit has three TVs including a flat screen in the living room, VCR and DVD player, and full sound system with cd/tape player. The condo is also equipped with a wireless, password protected router for high speed, secure internet access. Wake up to the sounds of dolphins playing in the pass below your window. Sunsets on the lanai are the best on the island - it is like a view from a cruise ship. Great location during tarpon season. Boat parking and boat ramp nearby. Boat slips, bikes, golf carts, kayaks, and other services can be rented or arranged through the on-site Boca Grande North office next to the pool. Pool, hot tub, tennis court, and great fishing are all on-premises. Town, shopping, restaurants, and more beaches are nearby. See map below for more information on where things are located. Scroll down for more detail on my two favorites, golf and fishing.

Boca Grande Village

Named to the National Register of Historic places in 2009, take a walk back in time when you visit town with its unique Florida history and quaint restaurants and shops. Boca Grande is where everyone gets around on bikes or golf carts and waves 'hello!' to friends and strangers alike.

Personally, I haven't found another place in Florida with no traffic lights (none), no eight-lane roads (still none), and no high-rises (unless you count 3 stories). It is truly special and really makes you appreciate what Florida USED to be like! There are about 14 restaurants on the island ranging from casual/outdoors to fairly high-end. Ask me or the office for details/reservations.


When you go to the Gulf beach, park at one of the three state beach parking lots at the South end of the island by South Beach Bar and Grill (one parking lot is directly adjacent on the south side). They have a great lunch menu with outdoor seating right on the beach and access to a nice indoor bathroom for beach goers. Don't miss their burger and grouper sandwiches, and make sure to get a rum punch from Freddie at the bar, tell him Matt sent you!

FISHING: There is great fishing on the property at the various beaches, sea walls, and bridges. If your are a fly fisherman, I fish the seawall and there are walkable flats with plenty of casting room on both the gulf and bay sides with tremendous fish variety including snook, tarpon, redfish, ladyfish, grouper, snapper, sea trout, sheepshead, and more. Rental boats for fishing and pleasure cruising (going for lunch on Bokeelia or Cabbage Key is great and easy to do even for novice boaters) are available through Whiddens Marina. Inquire at the office about kayaks which is a great way to see the nooks and crannies by water as well as incredible wildlife. In town, Boca Grande Outfitters has clothing, equipment, advice, and can arrange local fishing guides for everything from ocean sport fishing to mangrove spin casting and flats fly fishing.

Why Matt Headington Owner chose Boca Grande

Great and unique location. Its one of the few places in Florida that are still unspoiled. Go into town and it feels like you went back in time. Great view, beautiful beaches, great fishing.

Lovely setting for an escape from reality!

  • 4 of 5

After much research, I was quite pleased with these accommodations for a recent destination wedding in Boca Grande. The condo was better than pictured with some updates and very comfortable for 5 people. Having the breathtaking view directly off the master bedroom and living room balconies was the best part. In addition, the well maintained pool seemed like a private pool just for us. Even though all our wedding festivities were at the southern part of Boca Grande, it was not too far and actually worked out better for us. We were one of the few who had a pool directly where we stayed. I appreciated that you accommodated us for three nights and not longer. When we needed something the property management team was helpful. Plenty of towels too! The only recommendations I have are for some further updates to the condo and to supply the kitchen with paper and plastic goods as well as the bathroom with more paper goods.

Owner's Response: Audrey, Thanks for your review! Since your stay, I have had the furniture updated and new flooring is going in in September. I will notify the office about the paper needs in the kitchen and bathrooms. Please come again! Matt

Car: necessary

Boca Grande North.

AIRPORTS: Sarasota (call-sign SRQ) is closest at about 45-50 minutes, followed by Fort Meyers (RSW), then Tampa (TPA). Coming from NYC I prefer RSW since they have better flight options than SRQ and is only 10 minutes farther away. TPA has great flight options and is still an easy drive. Rental cars are available at all airports and the BG North office can help arrange taxi/limo service for pick up/drop-off.

Other Activities: Parasailing, Health/Beauty Spa, Boating, Shopping, Kayaking, Shelling.

Golf: GOLF: Golf is readily accessible just off-island at Rotonda (10 minutes away, good value, 4 courses, I have played them all and like their Long Marsh course although all are fun. Their Links could be the best executive course I have ever played - fun and challenging for the whole family and all skill levels). Riverwood is 20 minutes away, more expensive and challenging, but worth it). Ask me or the office for help with reservations/advice.
