Boca Grande Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
With beaches just 50' away this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom beachfront condo is pretty much as close to the ocean as you can get on the island of Boca Grande. Facing west, this property gets all day sun with spectacular unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico and stunning sunsets throughout the year.
This is a ground floor, corner unit that offers privacy and quick and easy access to the beaches. There are only 2 floors in this building and only 16 units in total so quiet is virtually guaranteed.
The 1400 sq ft unit has central AC, humidity control, an accessible thermostat, 4 variable speed ceiling fans, is carpeted in the living, dining and bedroom areas and tiled in the bathrooms, kitchen, entrance and lanai. The dining area seats 6, there is a 2 stool bar at the kitchen and there is a 4 seat table and chair set on an outside deck facing the ocean that is a lovely spot in the cooler months. There is also a communal gas BBQ available.
The master bedroom has a high profile king bed, multiple sets of 100% cotton sheets and a connecting master bathroom with a combined shower/tub, hair dryer and heat lamp. Bedroom windows and an adjoining screened-in lanai provide spectacular Gulf views.
The guest bedroom has twin beds, a wall mounted flatscreen TV and an adjacent bathroom.
The kitchen has all appliances and comes compete with eating and cooking utensils. There is a sitting room just off the kitchen, with sliding windows facing the tennis courts, which provides a great spot to enjoy a coffee in the mornings. There is a washer/dryer in the unit.
The living room is spacious with a wall mounted 42 inch Sony flatscreen TV with a DVD player and full HD programming. High speed Wireless Internet service is provided throughout the unit.
The lanai is a screened-in, open-air porch facing the Gulf. With a couch, 2 swivel chairs, a coffee table and a variable speed ceiling fan it's a really nice spot to relax and have drinks at the end of a day and take in the sounds, sights and smells of the ocean and surrounding dunes. Facing west not only guarantees a great sunset but there is quite commonly an on-shore westerly breeze throughout the day that is really refreshing. Vegetation and wildlife just outside the lanai are uniquely southern. Wildlife include turtles, which can almost be seen daily traipsing around the property, and in the ocean dolphins and perhaps less commonly, manatees, which are incredibly large, but gentle, sea cows.
The property is part of the Boca Grande Club. Amenities offered include the 'Upper Deck' casual restaurant, a more formal 'Clubhouse' restaurant at beach level, 3 pools with one offering complimentary towel service, a 'Tiki Bar', a hot tub and poolside lunch and drink service. There is a fitness facility offering private training, 8 clay tennis courts (3 can be lit for night play), 2 tennis pros from November to May, and a small retail tennis shop. Beach chaises and beach umbrellas are provided as part of the Club services. Programs offered by the Club include Circuit Training,Yoga, Aquatics, and Bridge.
Club staff are courteous and knowledgeable and are happy to provide advice on local restaurants, shopping, golf, fishing (Boca Grande is the tarpon capital of the world), and other activities in the Boca Grande area. The Club also rents bicycles and golf carts (4 and 6 seaters) which are both excellent ways to explore the island.
Boca Grande (more formally known as Gasparilla Island) is only 8 miles long and is located off the southwest coast of Florida, north of Naples and south of Sarasota. It is part of the 'barrier chain' of islands that includes Sanibel and Captiva. Connected to mainland by a short tolled ($6) causeway and a manned swing bridge, what makes Boca Grande unique are its miles of white sand beaches and its tranquil and relaxed Old Florida feel: no high-rises, no malls, no billboards, no traffic lights and no neon signs. Yet despite it's small size there is a great little town on island with excellent shopping, galleries and several very good restaurants.
This is a higher end island with property values ranging from $400,000 up to $15 Million. It is a spectacular getaway location.
