Located in the exclusive, gated Sea Oats Community, our 2 bedroom/2 bath condo (unit 122) has a very spacious 1,333 sq. ft. of air-conditioned space with a 250 sq. ft. screened lanai accessible from the living room and dining room, with a beautiful view of the Gulf and the pool/courtyard and, most importantly, only steps to the private beach!!

There are 2 courtyards on either side of the pool area equipped with gas and charcoal grills; outdoor tables/chairs under an arbor, and lights for after-sundown grilling! We have 2 lighted, clay court tennis courts, heated pool and newly renovated spa area. Many folks return here year after year and it is common to see generations of the same family during the holiday times or school vacations! It is unsure how this area seems to remain 'secret', but once you find it, you will want to return to this exclusive paradise!

About Kathy Christman

My husband and I met in college and have been married for over 30 years. We have 3 daughters. We currently reside in the Atlanta area.

Kathy Christman purchased this condo in 2006

Why Kathy Christman chose Boca Grande

We decided to come to this area for childrens' spring break one year, having never visited this part of Fla before. Well, we fell in love with area! The beach, the quaint village, community feel, the beach!! We found ourselves visiting many properties with local real esate agent during much of the week. When we found the condo at Sea Oats, we knew this was right for us!

What makes this condo unique

Proximity to beach and pool, quality of the bldg. construction, mgmt. on site, etc. were all important to us in decision to purchase a vacation home. Sea Oats continues to upgrade property with plantings for beach regeneration, adding gates, now golf-cart friendly, etc....all around good management important for a property in rental program.

Heavenly retreat in a prime location

  • 5 of 5

The condo description was true to the listing. We had a wonderful vacation at the Sea Oats. The condo was beautifully appointed in a beach theme was spotless when we arrived. . All appliances and furniture were new and worked perfectly. The washer and dryer came in handy. Our adult children and their spouses joined us for a weekend and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us. They enjoyed the tennis courts.The pull out couch had a comfortable air mattress attached. We enjoyed cooking breakfast every morning and grilling several nights. The kitchenware was plentiful and of very high quality. We enjoyed long walks on the almost empty beach and swimming every day in the lap worthy pool. We will definitely rent here again. The sunsets were BREATHTAKING! The people at the condo were very friendly as well. Great Condo.

Amazing condo, terrible property manager

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved your condo! The updated kitchen, baths and decor and large screened porch were amazing. The fact that the entrance was one floor above the parking lot & street was also really nice with small children back and forth between ours and our friend's condo. Proximity to the beach was amazing. Our only complaint was the property manager Peggy. Her attitude, texts and emails boarded on harassment. She accused us of a myriad of infractions, which all turned out to be untrue, and we never received an apology for how we were treated. So unfortunately although your condo was wonderful, because of her we will not return.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you liked our condo, but unfortunate that you had this experience with our property manager. We have never had that concern expressed before and we have owned our property for 10 years. It must have been quite an experience since you posted your review nearly a year after your stay and our property manager never mentioned any problems to me. I do hope you will not let this experience keep you from experiencing the beauty of 'Old Florida' in the future!! Regards, Kathy

This was a wonderful place!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! We have been in these units several times before, but we really loved it here. We tend to stay in for most meals and found the kitchen fully stocked. Could use more serving bowls is the only thing I can criticize about the whole place! We will be back next year.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Wonderfully appointed condo! We took full use of the pool and hot tub. Fished from the beach and snorkeled. Very comfortable and totally relaxing! We hope to go back!

Famous for it's fishing, Boca Grande is known as the 'Tarpon Fishing Capital Of The World'. Local fishing guides, boat rentals, kayaking and golf course access are all near-by. Golf cart and bike rentals are available on the island, which are great ways to see Boca Grande, with it's paved bike/cart path running the entire 5-mile stretch of the island. Tennis, jogging, fine local dining and shopping are all right here. Visit some of our historical landmarks - the library, churches and lighthouse. The flowers are beautiful. Walking the beach with a cup of coffee as the sun rises is a great way to start the day. You will find it very difficult to avoid picking up the wide variety of beautiful shells that await on the beach early in the day.
