About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Silver King - the best kept secret in a perfect location. Enjoy a small gated community with the interesting Boca Grande Bayou as your back yard. View it over coffee from the screened lanai or meet the manatee gang and resident wildlife up close and personal from your patio.

Optional assigned boat slip, with quick access to the Intercoastal waterway, Gasparilla Sound, Charlotte Harbor, 'The Pass', and the Gulf of Mexico. Boating, kayaking, beaching, shelling and world class fishing await.

Our sandy Gulf beach is no more than a 5 minute peaceful walk from the front gate. (We timed it!) You will pass charming historical cottages on the way and Boca Grande's famous pink library! A day at the beach, excellent shelling, fishing and some of Florida's best sunsets all happen so close to your door.

Silver King is on 10th Street. The heart of the village of Boca grande begins at 7th. It's a short walk, bike, or golf cart ride on dedicated paths to fine restaurants, unique shops, live theater and support businesses. Once you are on the island, there is no need for a car. We all ride our bikes or golf carts, or walk. (There are shuttles from nearby airports, so you can save the rental car hassle and cost if you wish.)


We love staying often in our totally remodeled getaway. It is complete with a well-supplied new kitchen, all new appliances, totally remodeled bathrooms and two newly screened and re-tiled patios.

The small Silver King complex is two attractive Spanish style buildings, three stories high, 20 units total. The requirement for no less than 30 day rentals make it very quiet and friendly. Completely open on one side to the Bayou, tennis courts plus security gates toward an attractive quiet street on the front side, pool area on the north end and a spacious landscaped yard to the south, it is a very secluded and safe environment. This makes for a great getaway for any age family or couple. Whether you are a snowbird couple, a fisherman or an active family, our vacation retreat is for you. Come stay for one, two or three months - especially in the winter!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We live in Central Florida and purchased this condo with retirement in mind. The better part of our first year was spent in a complete remodel, from the wiring out. Then we enjoyed putting furniture and personal items in place and, 'moved in' in 2006. We love Boca G, but also enjoy our lakeside home in Windermere, near Orlando. But surprise, surprise! Four new grandchildren came along in three short years. Away from home we go! While living our busy life, we can share Silver King with others.

Why the Owner Chose Boca Grande, FL, USA:
Why Boca Grande? We spent half of our honeymoon here n the Gasparilla Inn, a few years back -- more than we care to mention! That 'half' was somewhat about fishing. We still laugh about nighttime snook fishing off the railroad trestle! (Some enjoyed it better than others!) Boca Grande became part of our lives. As we raised our children, we brought them here often on vacations. They and their young children now love it as well. We always feel a sense of well bring as we drive down the causeway and over the bridge -- amazed at the clear blue expanse of water left and right.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
In addition to all that this unique barrier island village has to offer, Silver King's superb location makes it hard to beat -- one minute to your dock, five minute walk to the beach and ten minutes walk to town - walk, bike or golf cart on dedicated paths. Silver King is unique for lots of other reasons as well: It's the only long term rental located directly on the Bayou with manatees, snook, and bird life right at your door. Boat, kayak, paddleboard right from your dock. Elevator enclosed and easy access if raining. Ice machine in garage - fill your coolers all day long! Large gas grill to use any time. Other amenities are listed below in amenities section.
