About the Property
Brand New Furniture And House Wares Throughout Home
Once you go over the toll bridge and quickly cross the next two bridges, you will be fully immersed in the beauty found surrounding all of Gasparilla Island and Boca Grande. The waters are so teal and turquoise that you won't soon forget the calm peace it brings to everyone as they encounter the island.
Update on home: in the past several months we have updated our kitchen with brand new layout and cabinets, quartz countertops, appliances, etc. We have also updated living areas with new hardwood floors and new carpeting in bedrooms.
The Boca Grande Club is about one mile from the toll bridge on the northern end of the island. You will be greeted at the club by the guard at the gated entrance. We have a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom village home in the beautiful resort of the Boca Grande Club. In each of two bedrooms is a new queen Natura mattress (organic and extremely comfortable!) while a third bedroom includes a full size bed with an additional bunk bed (the bunk has a twin on top and a futon on the bottom). All the mattresses and pillows have at least two covers protecting them. The beds all have new duvets and every cleaning will include duvets and mattress covers washed as well as the pillowcases and covers. Almost all of the furniture (90?%) in the house is brand new and clean including all of the beach towels, bath towels and other linens.
Each bedroom has a new Samsung 4K HD TV as well as one in the living room. We have on demand Comcast/Xfinity and high speed internet with a great connection. There is a new Mac computer and printer for your use in the living room. There is a desk in each of the three bedrooms as well as plenty of storage space available. There is a Frontgate blow up twin mattress with all of the necessary bedding in one of the closets.
In the kitchen you will find all of the utensils, dishes, pots and pans you would need. There is a percolator coffee maker as well as a Kitchenaid drip coffee maker that needs no paper filters (I have learned from staying at vacation rentals the importance of coffee and preparing for it!). Some of the new kitchen items include: Berghoff pots and pans (as well as some iron pots and pans), cookie sheets, serving dishes, and flatware, etc. You can enjoy making your own Belgium waffles at home or pretty much any other thing you want! You should also find some of the staples in the cabinets left for your use such as some oils and spices.
There is a stacked front loading washer and dryer in the closet and plenty of linens for everyone.
The layout of the house begins with the garage on street level. There is room for two cars to park on the driveway. (Additional parking is available near the house at the tennis courts). The first level of the house is one set of steps above the garage. On this first level of the house, you will find two bedrooms (one has a queen bed and private bath and the other has a queen bed with the bathroom right next to the door), the kitchen with seating for 6 at the large island which is open to the living room. There are two screened in porches on this first level as well (one has a table and seating for 6 and the other has four comfortable lounging chairs). The loft area on the second floor of the house is where you will find the third bedroom (a full size bed and a bunk bed with a twin on top and a full size futon below) and bathroom. There is an open air deck with two lounge chairs off of this bedroom.
There are plenty of newer blue ray dvds at the house as well as plenty of books for all age levels. There are board games as well for everyone.
There is a gas grill, a table and four chairs near the garage for your use as well as a four piece outdoor sectional behind the garage under the house which is pretty private and very comfortable.
Feel free to use the bikes and beach chairs, etc that are in the garage. Renting a golf cart is a popular recreation on the island! You can easily enjoy driving into town in your car or on the designated golf cart path or bike path. It's about 3-4 miles into town.
There is so much to do at the club, you may forget to check out the town! The club has 8 tennis courts, a pool and hot tub with a tiki bar overlooking the beach, a fabulous workout room, children's playground with a play ship and swings and a smaller basketball court. Early morning seems to be a better time for walking the beach and finding large shells. It is not uncommon to find sand dollars and maybe some sharks teeth. However, the sand is still very nice for sunbathing as well. The club provides beach chairs and umbrellas as well as towels just for the pool (not for the beach though). The beach is a highlight of the island with it's mostly calm and mesmerizing blue waters. It's easy to walk slowly into the water as the depth is gradual with several sand bars near the club.
Local residents have said that the food at the club restaurant is some of the best on the island. You can walk the grounds and find the herb gardens, the gazebo, the bench swing, the fish pond, the other pool near the village homes, and the shaded walking path. It's quite enjoyable just enjoy walking around the 65 acres of the Boca Grande Club to see the beautiful landscaping and enjoying the sunset on the beach! Here is the club website www.bocagrandeclub.com
Across the street from the club and just north of it is the public pier with parking and fishing.
In town you will find about ten restaurants including the Gasparilla Inn bakery and coffee shop as well as ice cream at the Pink Pony or the Loose Caboose; there is a smaller grocery store (Hudson's) that seems to always have everything one would need; and several clothing and housewares and gift stores. There are multiple public beach access points along the main road of the 7 mile island with a lighthouse and museum at the south end. There is a helicopter landing area, a beautiful fire station, a medical clinic, ATMS and banks and a great community center that offers a wonderful playground, basketball courts, free movies as well as many lectures, plays, and great festivals throughout the year. If you are looking for a great wedding location or photography spots this island has an abundance of perfect locations. There are four churches on the island (Baptist, Catholic, Episcopal and Methodist). Be sure to pick up a copy of the Boca Beacon which comes out every Friday for the latest news and a calendar of events.
If you are looking for any activities such as renting a boat, going on a sunset or dophin cruise, deep sea fishing, renting a ski jet or any other activity you can think of, the front desk can help you. The service at the Boca Grande Club is excellent and they strive to take care of all guests.
Boca Grande is a community of people who enjoy calmer vacations and are mainly looking for a place to relax. We think you will find our home and Boca Grande able to satisfy a stress-free vacation while providing a high quality environment for families to appreciate.

Year Purchased: 2015
About: We are a family of five from the Cincinnati, Ohio area. We have three children ages 9 to 13. I started coming to Boca Grande to visit my in-laws in 1998 and my husband's family have been part-time been residents since 1987. We love the simple life found in Boca as well as the safety we feel for our family. There doesn't seem to be any place like Boca Grande that we have found where it seems isolated yet has everything a community would desire.
Why Boca Grande, FL, USA:
We chose this property because it is in the Boca Grande Club. We love the club and all of the amenities as well as the professional staff available for just about any need that could arise. The club is mostly condos, but we chose a village house because we feel more comfortable with the kids there, and we love having a garage.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Some of the unique benefits of our rental is that is in the Boca Grande Club. And specifically in the club our rental offers new furnishings and linens, it has three bedrooms and three baths (can easily accommodate 8 people), has three outdoor sitting areas plus the ground floor area; and it is about a 30 second walk to the tennis courts and a one minute walk to the workout area. Staying in a village house can be a great alternative for families who may have concerns of hearing others (or others hearing you) if staying in a condo. It's also nice to have more areas to spread out. Another great benefit to staying at our place is the use of bikes as well as having the gas grill for outdoor cooking! We have considered the needs of visitors to our home to provide an extremely comfortable environment. We have stayed in several vacation rentals and know some of the more important delights in a great rental include cleanliness, upscale furnishings, excellent beds and linens in addition to smaller details like nice flatware and cookware. I think your stay in Boca Grande will be excellently balanced with your stay in our village house.
