Myself and three friends traveled from the Miami/Ft Lauderdale area and the Midwest to share this lovely cottage for a girls getaway-50th birthday weekend in August. Each of us has traveled extensively, a couple have even seen the world over! We work in the hospitality industry and have extremely high standards - needless to say, we are picky when it comes to our lodging and amenities and we prefer to rent homes rather than stay in hotels. I can happily report that this charming cottage did not disappoint us, it exceeded our expectations in every way. The furnishings are comfortable, good quality and provide a great sense of place. The artwork is so unique, everywhere we turned there was a special piece that fit the house and the atmosphere of Boca Grande just right. The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed and more and the screened-in patio/pool was perfect for after-dinner lounging and star gazing. The location is just a few blocks from the beach and the village of Boca Grande, where you will find shops and dining, it is a stones throw from the front door - take off on foot or hop on the golf cart, it's easy and that's what vacation should be! The owner was helpful and accommodating - I would love to keep this gem to myself, because it's almost too good to be true but, I won't - stay here, you will have a wonderful vacation.
