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.

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.

Great place!

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!

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.

Amazing!!!!!

From reservation to arrival/stay-perfect! Information and communication from owners was wonderful and informative! I am always a little critical about what is in a rental for food prep, cleanliness, linens, etc. I was very happy (that says a lot) with how easily I prepared meals with the well furnished ktichen, how many towels were in the house, how nicely is was decorated and how clean it was! I am a difficult traveler yet was VERY pleased with the comfort of this home...didn't want to leave ;)

The beach is such a short walk and not crowded like "tourist beaches", they are clean of debris and just lovely!

As the owners have mentioned, there is a small store on the island which will be a great help for basic needs, but the Publix is close by.

No-see-um spray-it's worth the $13.99 which can be pruchased at Fugates, no matter where you stay in Florida, it's a must and well worth the money. You have the sun, sand, waves...a few bugs, seems fair to me ;)

I highly recommend a vacation to 414 Kidd Street, we had a wonderful time!

Best Vacation Ever!

This house is fantastic! Much better even than the pictures show. Perfectly clean. Well-maintained. Top notch appliances. Literally 2 minute walk to the beach. We could not have had a better time! Owners are wonderful and responded to any emails right away! One thing we didnt know at the time of booking is that there is a fee to enter the island of Boca Grande every single time you come in. This affected us because we took a lot of side trips, but it was well worth every penny!

Map

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
