SPECTACULAR BEACHFRONT 1 BD/1BA ON THE GULF W/ALL CLUB AMENITIES

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.

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.

A Vacation Must!

  • 5 of 5
Looking for a great get away? Boca Grande is a cosmopolitan island with the distinctive atmosphere of a secluded Caribbean paradise. For families or couples, Boca Grande is packed with millions of opportunities for smiles. Though it’s a small island in size, Boca Grande has a million miles worth of things to do. Go shopping and boating, rent a golf cart and see the island up close, lounge by the pool, or enjoy a round of golf. The privacy of the island also makes it a destination for those seeking peace and rest from busy, stressful daily life. Walk the picture-perfect beaches and marvel at the spectacular sunsets. Read, have a massage, take a yoga class. This unit at the Boca Grande Club is a gem! Recently renovated and tastefully decorated, you'll walk out the door to the pool or beach. The owners have gone above and beyond to provide every convenience possible. The gym has modern equipment and dining at the BG Club provides a "never have to leave the property" luxury option (without being expensive). If you are considering other places, stop, pick up the phone and book this condo! You'll be delighted that you did!

Watching the sunset over the gulf from your dining room while you have dinner. That was just one of the many magic moments we enjoyed. Boca Grande was a quaint, laid back community. We got to know several residents in town. The librarian of the local library. The owner of the pet store. We shared interest in our pets. The hardware store also serves as a department store, offering more than just hardware. The Gasparilla state park and light house are a must see. My best magic moment is going down Banyan street which is lined with 100+year old banyan trees. It feels like you are in Oz.
How do I describe this totally remodeled condo. It was fully stocked. I mean they even had scissors, cheese grater and ice cream scoop. What else do you need? The club offers lounges and beach umbrellas to guests. The beach is as far as you can see in both directions making a relaxing walk almost an obsession. Having access to wi fi proved helpful at times.
With the condo on the first floor we did not have steps to worry about. My wife recently had a knee replacement and she was limited in going up and down steps.
What else can I say! We had a wonderful time, enjoying new found friends and watching sunsets and most of all walking down banyan street.

What an amazingly, wonderful condo and vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from Boca Grande, residing in this lovely gulf front condo to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary! First of all, this condo was impeccable! This condo included a very detailed booklet authored by the owner with condo and Club details, which was very helpful (ie. how to use/ find items in condo, how the Club operated, etc.). The info also included some personal recommendations on restaurants, where to purchase food , where to receive urgent medical care, suggested sight-seeing places, and more. Condo included beach towels down to a hair dryer! We went out to dinner only three times as we realized that we had the best views of the gorgeous sunsets from the condo, captured almost every evening! We ordered in, bought fresh fish at the local market, etc. FYI, some stores were closed as it was the low season. However, we were there to play in the beautiful clear Gulf waters and relax under a beach umbrella. We saw schools of tarpons, very close to shore. We witnessed a game fisherman struggle to pull a very resistant tarpon to the side of his boat (they don't bring them on board and it is catch and release). Don't worry-all of that activity and the tarpons being close are just within viewing from a great distance! What was very exciting were the manatees which would swim along the shore, just beyond our reach! It was cool! On two occasions, I tried to run in the water alongside a manatee (still 10-20' away)! It was always faster but didn't mind human presence!! It was awesome. We also found so many whole sand dollars, some washing up on shore along with an incredible number of beautiful shells (even found a small solid orange scallop shell!). We found numerous sand dollars in the water and we tried to bring them back in our luggage but obviously packed them wrong as they were all broken when we returned home. Next time, I will bring them onboard the plane where I can treat them delicately, and also beforehand, pack them in bubble wrap. I can't emphasize enough the beauty of the shells and sand dollars! The temperature of the water was perfectly warm! The week we chose was great as there were perhaps a handful of others on the beach! The condos filled more towards the end of our stay most likely a function of schools closing. BTW, The Gasparillo Inn fine dining room was definitely the highlight for dining, The Temp was very good and I have to add that "The Pink" pub restaurant (lower level) is also a must! We will return!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My heart smiled when I walked into this condo. Light, bright, airy. The decorating was inviting and made me feel like I was on vacation! Wall to wall Gulf view. Perfect size for a couple. The condo was in perfect condition when we entered, very clean, very well stocked. In fact, the condo has had a few updates since these photos AND looks better in person. The condo is a 1 min walk (if that) straight up to the beach and a 2 minute walk from the beach to the clubhouse/Tiki bar. Close to the workout room as well. The Boca Grande Club community was lovely as well. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back when we get the chance. It was a wonderful few days on the Island and the condo was the "perfect" place to relax.
