Unit # 141 is on the SUN side of the complex so you can enjoy sunning on our open air porch. Pls see the pictures that we've taken to provide a glimpse of the beauty outside your vacation condo.

The town is like Sanibel without all the people. There are no high rise buildings, and relatively few large condominiums. Our condo is on the best beach on the island.

The sunsets are spectacular, shelling is terrific, with sand dollars plentiful most of the year. The dolphins are regular visitors, the fishing in front of the condo is very good.

For bird watchers, the island is home to numerous osprey nests, and eagle nests are off island. Tarpon fishing at the end of the island in spring-summer is world famous. Several excellent golf courses nearby. The quaint shops carry beautiful merchandise.

Our smoke-free condo has newer appliances, new ceramic tile in most areas, wood floors in bedrooms, and a casual feeling to remind you that you're on vacation! It is a first floor, end unit so you have extra light , more relaxing breezes and easy entry with elevator or close to the stairs.

No walkway behind master bedroom guarantees privacy. Parking is under the building. Two porches, one open, one screened. Most meals are eaten outside on the lanai. Friends tell us a visit to the condo is like going to Hawaii, but for a lot less money.

Visitors regularly include celebrities. Katherine Hepburn came here for years. The Bush family has spent several Christmas holidays here, as have a number of movie stars. The island was used for the recent Denzel Washington movie 'Out of Time'.

If you'd like to enjoy dinner at the Gasparilla Inn, pls remember jacket is required for dinner, only. They will provide jackets upon request. Fabulous food and remember to take the Inn "kitchen tour" with Chef on Thursday or Sat.

About Joy Flaherty

Dennis and I are from MN and Mich (UP) and currently live in Davenport, Iowa. We always think of ourselves as Florida people with one foot on the beaches at Boca! We love to walk on the 7 mile beach and bike to the Inlet for breakfast by the water. We had a very SPECIAL guest who walked on the beach with us in Jan 2015! Feel free to ask about it!

Joy Flaherty purchased this condo in 2003

Why Joy Flaherty chose Boca Grande

We visited Florida many times to see my Mom, Eddy, who spent the winters in Pt Charlotte. One day, we visited the small island of Boca Grande and fell in love! We purchased our first Boca property in 1985.

We love the 'old Florida feel' with it's slower pace to enjoy all of nature's beauty. Rent bikes or a golf cart and not have to use your car for the whole vaca . . . truly relaxing!

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is a CORNER on the 'sun' side of the building so you will be able to enjoy the Florida sunshine all day and shade in late afternoon . . . just in time for dinner on the lanai! We have screens on all doors to provide fresh ocean breezes . . . we love to turn off the air conditioning and enjoy the fresh breezes.

Our condo is on the first floor and convenient to the steps to get to the beautiful water, beaches and even the golf cart charging area~ rent a cart for your vaca! The building also offers elevators for ease of moving in and out.

I love to cook you can be sure that we offer a well stocked kitchen with granite counters, a pantry for your storage and colorful Fiesta Ware dishes. Guests always comment on our well stocked kitchen with lots of flatware, dishes and glasses.

We try to offer all of the amenities for your home away from home vacation. Hair dryers, lots of beach towels, make up mirrors, cozy cover-ups and leather couches which help to cool you off after a day in the sun.

We 'fluff up' our unit on a regular basis to insure your every comfort. We added wood floors in bedrooms and updated our master bath w special walk in shower , raised commode and lots of natural stone. Our guest bath and bedroom has a queen bed and beach décor with horizontal striped walls, new bath fixtures , and a raised


We have a 50" smart TV which you can use with your Netflix account, DEDICATED internet for the best connection, leather sofas and a special feeling. . . "Welcome to our condo , a place to relax, enjoy the beach and the beauty of Boca."

Many thanks for sharing our special place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The renovations to the kitchen and master bath were fantastic and enjoyed by our family. The unit was very clean. I was relieved that there were sand chairs available for our use, since we forgot ours. We had everything we needed and even perfect weather.

Vacation time with the family

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Unit 141. It is freshly decorated and oh, so welcoming!

The views are terrific. You see the pool and just beyond is the Gulf. If you want to feel like you are far away from the hustle-bustle this is the place to be. Pool time. Beachtime. Shell hunting and of course, fishing. Lovely restaurants and shops in the downtown area. Sightseeing, also.

The condo had everything we needed. From the very well-equipped kitchen to the pretty linens and bath towels, as well as, the things you need for the beach- chairs, umbrellas, beach towels. Not your typical rental decor and accommodations. You can see the owners really love their place! We just needed a swimsuit and some flip flops! Highly recommend Condo 141 at Sea Oats in Boca Grande. Pretty. Spotless. Great location. Loved it!

Great Place

We loved everything about your condo. The complex is clean and well maintained. The unit is very well stocked with the things you need and want in a vacation rental. Very clean and well maintained. Short walk to the beach. Ten minute ride by golf cart to downtown. We have rented a lot of places over the years and this one is the best of the best.

Thank you Tom and Cindy

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My 6th year at BG. This by far was my favorite. The condo is clean and comfy. Great pool and beautiful beach. Walked the beaches and shelled every day. Went to Farmers Market and cooked at condo a few days, which had everything we needed. So sad to go home.

Our week in December discovering Boca Grande could not have been better! The moment we opened the door and stepped in, we were so pleased! The condo was spotless, the decor beautiful and I can’t imagine what anyone would need that wasn’t there.

The furniture was quite comfortable, especially the two large chairs and ottomans. Loved that there was a fan for me, a “fan sleeper” ! Having a washer and dryer in the unit was so helpful. And there were more than enough towels, kitchen items, etc.

What a beautiful beach with so many shells and sand dollars to bring home! Great souvenirs! Took many long walks and watched the sunsets. Just can’t say enough good things! Thank you Joy and Dennis!
