About Dawn Daugherty

I am a Florida native with a love for the beach and fishing. I have decorated this home with 'vacation' in mind and provided items for the beach/fishing/staying at home and enjoying the view/and nature. I hope you will enjoy this vacation home as much as I do!

Dawn Daugherty purchased this condo in 2014

Why Dawn Daugherty chose Gasparilla Island

Boca Grande is a little slice of heaven. I have dreamed of owning a home here for my entire adult life and the opportunity knocked so my husband and I grabbed it and have never looked back. Tranquil yet active, quiet yet refined, close to activities yet off the beaten path. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we love being here.

What makes this condo unique

This CORNER unit has upgraded bedding that will let you drift to sleep while the waves lap against the shoreline. Waking up to the Gulf waters with porpoise playing and sea life making their way through the pass out to bigger waters happens here! All rooms have fabulous ceiling fans, including the patio, for your pleasure in case the breeze is quiet while enjoying your morning coffee or having a carefree lunch. The bedrooms have one extra window since it is the corner location, making for double the water views! Everything you need is in this home, board games, flat screen tv's, wireless dvd's, washer/dryers, hair dryers, make up mirrors, full kitchen, you name it we have thought of it. There are also boat slips for rent just across the street on property. Wet & dry slips reasonably priced for daily rates. You can also store your boat/trailer onsite if you chose to launch it daily and not pay the slip fee.

Me and 3 other guys from Colorado, Michigan and Texas all meet up to do some

fly fishing for tarpon. We had a great time at the condo and it had perfect

views of the gulf that were great.The location could not be better, we just

walked across the street to the boat docs to met up with our fishing

guides every morning .The condo was clean and very comfortable and we enjoyed

having a cocktail after a great day of Tarpon fishing on the screened in

porch over looking the gulf, no better way to end a great day of fishing.

We are already talking about booking the condo for next May's tarpon trip.

Boca Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo, right on the water! The minute you walk in, the coastal décor welcomes you to your island vacation! The beds are comfortable & bedrooms bright. This is an end unit - so the extra windows make for a light & cheerful interior. The kitchen is well equipped for nights when you prefer to "dine in" while watching the boats, dolphins & sunset from your private balcony. The complex is very well maintained. The staff is friendly ... & the pool is beautiful! As we leave - we already look forward to a return visit next year! The owner of this condo is very friendly & accommodating. Thanks, Dawn, for sharing your beach house with us!!

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion of sorts with 8 of us staying in adjoining condo's.... I liked ours the best as it was on the top floor and an end unit.... so no noise from neighbors at all. And a beautiful view out the back as you look down into the crystal clear water and watch schools of fish swim by (and even dolphins and rays!). The grounds were clean, and wonderfully appointed as we cooked out two nights, one of them around the pool. We had bikes and rented a golf cart.... that's really the best way to get around this place. Finally, we chartered one of the local captains for a day of inshore fishing and had a fantastic time.... I'd definitely recommend this Condominium and in particular this Unit as you can see from the pictures.... these folks take care of their place and their Guests.... we WILL BE RETURNING !

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

Property was very nice and comfortable, the area is very beautiful. The only issue we had were small ants on the kitchen counters, we had to treat for that. We would definately like to return.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you had this problem. There is 24 hour maintenance on staff and the office or answering service could have helped you with that. I also have a pest control service monthly so this shouldn't have been an issue. Any problems are immediately taken care of by the office staff on site. Again I am sorry you had this occurance and was unaware until this review.

Beautiful condo that has all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, as soon as you walk in the front door you see the water on the screened in patio off of the living room. The area itself is so peaceful and relaxing and you can walk out your front door and fish on the seawall behind the condos. The condo was like a home away from home with all of the comfort you would need to enjoy your vacation. I highly recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a clean, classy and comfortable place to relax and enjoy the view. I can’t wait to book another vacation!!

Beautifully appointed, comfortable oasis where you feel like you are on top of the emerald blue/green water. Decorated in a beautiful beach motif, we never wanted to leave! It's a tropical paradise...amenities galore! We drank coffee on the screened in patio in the morning and cocktails in the evening to watch the sunset. We fished from the sea wall, sat at the beach and swam at the pool while we barbecued. It was a short golf cart ride into town to go to restaurants and gift shops. We also rode our bikes into town which was great exercise. We were a party of six... Two grandparents, two children and two grandchildren. The unit was perfect for our family. Can't wait to return....will definitely be booking again! Owner was a pleasure to work with!

Car: necessary

Boca Grande is a special place nestled on the Gulf Coast of Florida and is one of the best kept secrets! The unit is located directly on the Gulf and when sitting on the balcony you will see a panoramic view for miles. This is a corner unit so the views from the master and guest baths also continue the beauty. The master bdrm includes a balcony as well so enjoy your coffee and the paper in absolute beauty and tranquility. You will find that fishing in Boca Grande is unmatched and if fishing isn't for you there is always, golf, tennis, swimming, and some of the best shelling in the state.
