PRIVATE, RECENTLY-FURNISHED HOUSE WITH HEATED POOL, NEAR BEACH

Boca Grande House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6 comfortably (8 including sofa bed)

Set yourself apart from other beach rentals in one of the only single-family rental homes, with pool, available on Boca Grande. Entirely renovated a few years ago with new appliances, flat-panel TVs, furniture, fixtures, baths, flooring, and in-ground heated pool, it sleeps 6 comfortably, and up to 8 including sofa bed. The property is adjacent to a tropical nature preserve, which offers privacy for your vacation, not found in condos, townhomes or even most other single-family house rentals (you’re on Boca Grande to escape everyday life – don’t stay in a place where you’ll be disturbed by others). Enjoy meals on the screened-in lanai overlooking the new secluded heated pool which starts at zero depth, ideal for small children, reaching 5 feet for adults. One minute walk to the best Gulf beaches, great for swimming or shelling. Walk, jog or bike on the nearby paved path to anywhere on the island, including the quaint town with great restaurants and shopping. See link to video of the home.

Unrestricted beach access: As our guest you have legal access to a private footpath leading to the beach

Guest Feedback: Here is feedback from actual guests who stayed at the house, in response to our post-visit survey asking 'what was your favorite aspect of 414 Kidd?': “Everything was well above our expectations and we can't wait to come back!”, “The home is in a great location...one of our favorite places to vacation.”, “The proximity to the beach and downtown Boca Grande. Also the pool and kitchen were exceptional.”, “The beauty of the landscaping and decor of the home seems luxurious. The proximity to the beach is perfect and the pool is fabulous!”, and “It's hard to pick one. We loved everything about the place!”

Our family loves vacationing in Boca Grande. Here's a picture of us on the back balcony.

Emma and Jim purchased this house in 2005

We've stayed in places all over Florida and can safely say that Boca Grande is one of a kind. It's special place because it feels like you're in a small community of friends who appreciate the island lifestyle. We like to call it the 'land time time forgot' because people are friendly and everything is pristine, like when we were kids. There are no chain stores or chain fast-food restaurants and no amusement park rides. Fun is made by going to the beach, playing in the pool and exploring the island.

Perfection All Around

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at this lovely home for the second summer! My grandchildren asked if we could all live here. The home is perfectly appointed for the beach! It is comfortable, yet is lovely in its own style. The owners take great pride in making sure your every need is attended to. The home is updated with incredible style, yet allows you to feel every comfort possible. All you need when you arrive is clothing and food. Everything else is provided. My family has been coming to Boca Grande for over 30 years and there is no other place we would choose to stay on the island now that we have found this home away from home. Do not hesitate when choosing this home. It will not disappoint! All your needs are met, far above any expectation! If you are a gourmet cook, you will love this home as well!

Beautiful home!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is our third time staying in this Boca Grande vacation home. It is absolutely perfect and we love staying here! The owners have gone above and beyond to make sure their guests have every comfort of home available. Top notch kitchen, bedding and furniture, plenty of beach and bath towels, beach chairs, beach toys, pool toys, wagon, pack n play, high chair. Loved eating dinner on the lanai every night and not worrying about any bugs. We felt comfortable having young children here, especially with the gate around the pool. Very short walk to the beach (which is not crowded at all). Can't beat this home!!!

Feels like your own island

  • 5 of 5
WOW, what a great location and a wonderful home. It feels like you're on your own island at the house with a secluded backyard and amazing pool with pool deck. The house is fully updated, is very well decorated and is extremely comfortable. Less than a 5 minute walk to a serene beach that never got over crowded.

The owners were very easy to deal with and we will be coming back.

Also - if you're looking to rent a boat, check out Gasparilla Marina which is just off the island - great service and the boats are clean and well maintained.

Beautiful property in Boca Grande

  • 5 of 5
This is a really nice house, beautifully decorated with a lovely warm pool in a very private and attractive back yard. The location is perfect - very short walk to a quiet beach and a nice golf cart ride into town. The owners are a delight to deal with and I really cannot fault anything. I have rented many properties in Florida and elsewhere and this is one of the very best. Highly recommended.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
It was our first time on Gasparilla and glad we chose this home. The owners were very easy to work with and provided everything you could possibly need in the house. We loved our stay on the island. August is a dead month and very few restaurants were open, but we had an idea that this was the case before we went. The island was practically deserted while we were there. The beaches were beautiful, very clean, and the water was crystal clear. Evening storms every day but the days were beautiful. I highly recommend this place if you want to be away from it all! Thanks!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation experience! The house was amazing and very well equipped for all our vacation and cooking needs. Every detail was perfect... from an amazing master shower to having plenty of beach and bath towels to having an ipod docking station. The pictures do not do this house justice. Having a screened in lanai was great... we ate dinner there every night and didn't have to worry about bugs. The pool area was very picturesque and kid friendly, it even had toys for the little ones. The beach is closer than it appears on the map and very convenient to get to, also not crowded at all. We even saw a Bobcat, an Armadillo and a Dolphin on the island.
We've used vrbo over a dozen times and this is one of our favorite vrbo experiences. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Car: recommended

Located on south end of Gasparilla Island which is secluded and offers the best beaches on the island (as our guest you have legal access to a private footpath leading to the beach). Only 10-15 min walk to town or travel like the locals on golf carts which is only a 5 minute ride (carts and bikes can be rented in town). Gasparilla Island offers great restaurants for fine dining or a casual lunch. Visitors say the island has a charm of traditional Florida that can't be found anywhere else. Great place for snow birds to relax or for couples with young children who want to spend quality time at the beach, pool or riding bikes.

Other Activities: Miles of paved bike paths
