Overview

Boca Grande Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, Beachfront condo with a stunning, unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico. The property faces west giving it all day sun and spectacular year round sunsets. Located on the ground floor this unit provides quick and easy access to some of the best beaches in America stretching for miles in both directions offering great walking, shelling, swimming or simply relaxing and reading by the ocean.

The unit has been completely renovated including a total redesign of the kitchen and bathroom resulting in greater counter space and a more spacious feel and flow. The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances, cookware and eating utensils and has Silestone quartz countertops and a 3 stool eat-in bar. The bathroom, connected to both the bedroom and living area, has a large floor to ceiling walk-in glass shower, double sink stone vanity and comes with both bath and beach towels.

The unit has Comcast's Performance Internet service throughout, central AC, an accessible thermostat, fully tiled floors, a high profile king bed with multiple sets of high thread count 100% cotton sheets, a washer/dryer, ceiling fans in both the bedroom and lanai, light dimmers throughout, a wall mounted 40 inch Panasonic Plasma flatscreen TV w/DVD and full HD programming in the living area, a 26 inch Samsung flatscreen TV in the bedroom, and full curtains with blackout along all windows to provide total darkness in the early mornings if desired.

Inside or out this unit offers a spectacular way to relax on the edge of the ocean.

The property is part of the Boca Grande Club a gated, 62 acre private residential community. Amenities offered by the Club include the 'Upper Deck' casual restaurant, a more formal 'Clubhouse' restaurant at beach level, poolside lunch and drink service, 3 pools with complimentary towel service, a 'Tiki Bar', complimentary beach chaises and umbrellas and help with their setup if needed, complimentary use of sea kayaks, a newly expanded fitness facility offering private training and massage, 8 clay tennis courts (3 of which can be lit for night play), 2 tennis pros 'in-season' offering organized drills and matches throughout the week in addition to private lessons if desired, a small retail tennis shop, DVD rentals and a spacious Library/Quiet Room that has books, a TV, comfortable couches and a piano for those times when guests prefer a little 'out of the way' quiet time.

Programs offered include Circuit Training, Yoga, Aquatics, and Bridge. Club staff are courteous and knowledgeable and will happily provide recommendations on 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 which are both excellent ways to explore the island.

Boca Grande (formally known as Gasparilla Island) 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, what makes Boca Grande unique are it's miles of beaches and it's tranquil, relaxed, Old Florida feel: no highrises, no malls, no traffic lights, and no neon signs. Despite it's small size, the town on the island is charming with excellent shopping and several very good restaurants.

The unit, the Club, and the island offer privacy, relaxation and rejuvenation....a fantastic vacation get away.

Why The Owner chose Boca Grande

We live in a large North American city. Part of city living is dealing with traffic, stress and frustration. Boca Grande offers a phenomenal contrast. The ocean, the beaches, the people and even the vegetation promote relaxation and a refreshingly slow pace. We love it.

Prior to buying we'd looked and stayed at a number of Florida locations and concluded the east coast was too busy, that Naples and Sarasota were, despite their beauty, too much like the city and that Longboat Key, Sanibel and Captiva, while closer to what we were looking for just seemed that much bigger and busier. What we love about Boca is that it has a real Old Florida feel which we find very appealing. We enjoy activities and while Boca gives us the opportunity to be active it also gives us the opportunity to spend hours at the beach doing nothing if we want...which is a nice alternative to have.

What makes this condo unique

The 1st thing we do when we arrive and the last thing we do before we leave is walk the beaches. They are truly spectacular. If we turn right at the beach we can walk for an hour until we're stopped by the beach 'running out' at a private residence boat dock. And if we turn to the left at the beach it takes a couple hours to effectively walk all the way to town. We've only ever done that once and the bottoms of our feet hurt for days. We're also runners and the island has a trail from one end to the other that's great for running. It's also used for biking, for golf carts and we've seen people roller blading as well. The tennis program at the Club is fun and is really well run. And there are many really good golf courses in the area with various price points and levels of difficulty.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this condo for a delayed honeymoon. As a couple in our 40's, we were hoping for a calm and relaxing time without the "constantly on the go" life we lead at home with our three daughters. This was the perfect place for that. The condo had everything we needed. The distance to the beach was wonderful and the view can be described as nothing less then amazing. We loved the laid back life of this island and hated to leave. I can honestly say this has been our absolute rental experience on vrbo.com thus far. Mack, the owner, was beyond helpful with the recommendations and suggestions for the island. Other owners should strive to provide their renters with as much information that he does. We definitely hope to make it back sometime again.

Beautiful and Well-Located

  • 5 of 5
What can we say to add to the accolades? This is a lovely condo, well-decorated and appointed, with every amenity and stellar customer service. The location is perfect - the view and beach are spectacular. Love the little town of Boca Grande. The club pool, tiki bar and everything else is wonderful: sparkling clean and lovely. Good Pina Coladas ;-) One thing you should know: it is not necessary to rent a golf cart of bike. If you want to, fine, but you can drive pretty much anywhere.

Our First Trip to Gasparilla Island

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely fell in love with this condo, the complex, the location and most of all our stunning view! The condo had everything a cook would need to create a wonderful meal. We needed to bring work along with us and there was plenty of room for us to set up our laptops and printer and yet have living space. We could not have asked for a better get a way and we look forward to doing this again next year. Extremely clean - and I am extremely picky!!!

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5
This is a couple only condo, but for a couple it is the perfect place to stay. It is not far from main gate, office, pool, and library. Unhindered view of the Gulf and magnificent sunsets...and just a short (200 feet or so) walk to beach. The condo is extremely well equipped and very well taken care of. The owner is awesome to deal with....will make sure you are well prepared for your stay on Boca Grande Island and the condo. Would highly recommend this condo if you want a great place to stay.

October Getaway to Boca Grande

  • 5 of 5
We have had Gasparilla Island on our list of places to visit for a long spell and finally found time to do it last week. We chose this beautiful condo from its online description and we were not disappointed. It has been recently updated and is beautiful! The decor is charming and suitable for a beach condo. Everything looks new. It was in pristine condition.
The enclosed dining area overlooks the gulf and is a great spot to have morning coffee or to enjoy the sunset during an evening meal.
The kitchen was large and functional and had good appliances. One thing I cannot overemphasize is how well stocked this unit is. The owner obviously put a lot of thought into it and absolutely everything you might need during your stay is literally at your fingertips except for groceries. I have never stayed anywhere that was this well stocked. There were two nice stainless steel cups to take your morning coffee out to the beach and there was even a 12 oz.bag of coffee and a nice bottle of chardonnay awaiting us on our arrival.
The bed was very comfortable and there is ample closet space. The double-vanity bathroom had a very nice shower.
The unit is a mere 50 yards from the gulf and very close to the fitness room( good equipment) and the clubhouse which has a pool, dining facilities and a tiki bar on the pool deck.
The Boca Grande Club itself is an imposing complex which has beautiful landscaping and has been very well maintained and has many amenities.
Boca Grande village is a gem. We had a wonderful meal at the venerable Gasparilla Inn.
We had a great visit and will definitely stay in this unit when we return.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I just spent a long weekend celebrating my birthday on Boca Grande. We LOVED this clean and beautiful condo! Decorated so tastefully and stocked with absolutely everything we could want to make us feel comfortable and at home. The owner has paid attention to detail and it makes this the perfect spot to enjoy this perfect Florida island. The staff in the office were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed riding bikes into the town and the park. The beaches are gorgeous & the sunsets were glorious, whether we were on the beach or in the comfort of the condo, which has beautiful views from the kitchen, living room, lanai or bedroom. We would love to return to this place! Such a treasure.
