Location

Boca Grande - also 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. The island is connected to mainland by a short toll bridge. Once you cross the causeway you enter a unique stetch of land that is defined by miles of beaches and a tranquil, relaxed, Old Florida feel where streets are shared by both vehicles and golf carts. The island, which served as the backdrop for Denzel Washington's movie, Out of Time, as well as the 2006 film based on Carl Hiaasen's book Hoot, offers an unusual combination of nature, comfort, and quiet relaxation. Despite its small size, the town on the island is charming with excellent shopping and several very good restaurants. Mostly, though, the island is known for what it doesn’t have: there are no high-rises, no neon signs, no malls, and no traffic lights.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I began visiting Boca Grande almost 20 years ago. We stayed in almost every part of the island and found that we loved each and every spot. When a unit became available for sale in Marina Village of the Boca Grande Club, we decided to first rent a nearby unit. We soon thereafter bought as we found that we loved the views and the distant boat activity up and down the Intracoastal, and we also enjoyed the flexibility of using the club's Gulf side facilities while sometimes opting for the quiet of the small pool within steps of our unit. As work still keeps us up north for a good part of the year, we make our unit available for rental. With this in mind, we set up our unit with the plan of making a visitor's experience every bit as comfortable as our own time on this spectacular island. Something very special occurs when you cross the three bridges that lead from the mainland to Boca Grande, and we get great joy reading the guest book we leave in our unit, hearing of the stays of those who enjoyed their time at Marina Village 6.

Why the Owner Chose Boca Grande, FL, USA:
A quiet corner of paradise with captivating plus access to the amenities of the Boca Grande Club, the unspoiled nature of Gasparilla Island, and the quiet ambiance of the village of Boca Grande.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Beach access to the Gulf via the Boca Grande Club as well as boating access via the marina that abutts the Marina Village condo.
