When you cross over the swing bridge and enter into Boca Grande, it will feel as if you have entered an exclusive resort. Boca Grande has plenty to see and so while there. You can head into town for a pastry at The Gasparilla Inn Café before heading down to the old lighthouse on south beach. Enjoy a delicious seafood dinner at Miller’s Dockside as you watch the boats pass by the Marina. After a day at the beach you can even grab an ice cream at the Dolphin Cove Café and discover your new favorite flavor. One thing you will quickly discover in Boca Grande is that no matter where you go you will be greeted with smiling faces and pleasantries as if you were longtime friends. Boca Grande is truly a hidden gem that provides the perfect escape into old Florida.

The Gardner Beach House is located on the north side of Boca Grande Island just a short walk out your back door to the tranquil beach. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off when you come back from the sandy shoreline, and a patio area to sit and enjoy dinner while watching the sunset. The downstairs boasts an open floor plan connecting the living room, dining room and the kitchen. Cabinets are fully stocked with dishes, cookware and appliances that you will need. There is a single bedroom with a queen bed and neighboring bathroom. Upstairs you will find the spacious master suite with a king sized bed and views overlooking the gulf, as well as a second bedroom with twin beds and an en suite bathroom.

Perfect Beach Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Our family spent Christmas here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have stayed in several vacation rentals and this is one of our favorites (and I'll admit I have high expectations). Beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. Perfect location, amazing views, spectacular sunsets, private and peaceful. We had fun using the pool and tennis court right beside the villa. I would definitely recommend renting the golf carts. We went everywhere on the island in them and didn't even use our cars. It was easy and a lot of fun. Gasparilla Island is lovely. Boca Grande is a cute little town with nice shops and restaurants. We always appreciate finding a place this nice that is also dog friendly, so thank you. Bonus-bald eagles nest right outside the villa, which we enjoyed watching all week. A truly relaxing vacation for our family and we didn't want to leave. We would love to stay here again. Megan was very easy and pleasant to work with. Highly recommend this place.

Hard to leave when the week was over!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a delightful week! We have stayed in many lovely locations on Boca Grande but this was tops. Two families including four teens. House was spacious and comfortable --we could spend lots of time together or apart with ease. Beach was the best, even at peak times we walked alone on some days which is bliss. Seven of us slept like a dream in the three quiet and comfy rooms with super soft linens and nice en suite baths. Kitchen stocked with nearly everything we needed. Pool close but far enough away to rarely hear others use it. Golf cart access was a plus. The biggest hit? Porch bed swing. Many naps on a breezy afternoon were enjoyed, and perfect spot for a sunset cocktail. Sand dollars washed up at our feet, beach supplies (chairs, etc.) plentiful. The only downside was that we were so relaxed the week slipped by too quickly and we had to return to the cold up north. Highly recommend-- but please do not book during our one week of spring vacation. We are spoiled now and not sure anywhere else will do!

Beautiful beachfront townhouse in quiet section of Boca Grande

  • 5 of 5

Tastefully decorated townhouse with all amenities enjoyed by 3 generations - nearby community pool, tennis court and quiet beach. Situated in elegant north end of Island. Only recommendation would be some outdoor furniture for back patio

A beautiful beach home...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Gardner Beach House was a perfect vacation away from the New Jersey winter.

This beautifully appointed, recently renovated home is situated on the Gulf in a quiet gated community. We loved our days on the perfect beach and even managed to catch a few nice fish. The golf cart is a must to explore Boca Grande from end to end. The cart was also our wheels for our dinner.

The property manager, Megan, was very accommodating and answered the few questions we had. Bring the family and all will have a great experience!
