About Bart & Amy Blessing

Coming from a boating family and continuing that tradition with our 3 young children we have vacationed and boated on just about every waterway in Florida. We value Faith, Family and Friends; we work hard in our careers, school and sports and this is our little tropical paradise where we can relax and rejuvenate from our busy schedules.

Bart & Amy Blessing purchased this house in 2012

Why Bart & Amy Blessing chose Boca Grande

The Boca Grande area offers a vast number of unique activities that no other destination can match. There is world class inshore and offshore fishing, tiki bars and sand bars, fine dinning or a cheeseburger in paradise on Cabbage Key. Venture out on a kayak or paddle board, hunt for sharks teeth and shells along the beach or catch a wave on a surf board. Simply put you can spend a week here and do something completely different every day! We choose this home because of it's Key West style and island feel, we wanted water access that was less than 5 minutes to the pass. We like to spread out and have some privacy so a condo would not work and we wanted access by car to the grocery store or what every our needs may be. We were blessed to come across this property and we enjoy it immensely. When we can't be there we enjoy having our friends experience our tropical paradise.

What makes this house unique

Less than 1/2 mile to Publix!

Relaxing escape!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean home with everything you might need. A perfect place to get away from the daily routine of life. Quiet neighborhood, low traffic, close to a grocery and restaurants. Near beautiful Boca Grande with lovely beaches and beautiful blue water. Love using the kayaks! Great place to entertain friends or share with grandchildren. Bart is very accommodating and prompt with communications. Enjoyed our relaxing time away from home!

Fabulous vacation rental

  • 4 of 5

The listing description regarding the location, layout and amenities were as posted on the website. If you are looking for a beach house, this is your spot. The property was clean. The owner was available to answer any questions we had and when we had a problem with the pool heater he was quick to respond. While we did not bring a boat to this "boaters paradise" we did bike on some fabulous trails, played golf at great golf courses within a 10 minute drive and spend many hours walking the beach which is only 20 minutes away. The entire area is very welcoming, laid back and comfortable

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this location so much that we came back for a second year! Not only is Boca Grande a beautiful vacation spot, but this home makes our stays so relaxing and the open layout is just perfect for our family. We enjoyed spending most of the nights at the house grilling out by the heated pool and playing card games. The kitchen is nice and spacious and made it easier to just stay in and enjoy eachothers company there, rather than at a restaurant. We did however get to visit some of the local spots for lunch on the water that the owners suggested and we were very impressed. I have to say that if you're planning on boating or kayaking, the location is perfect! Everything is within a couple of miles whether you're fishing or just watching the gorgeous sunsets on the sandbars. We were excited to come back and look forward to future visits here!

Awesome Family Vacation in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 w/ kids ranging from 10 to 19 had a BLAST at your beautiful home! Having our own boat was awesome & we enjoyed daily outings to beaches, restaurants, fishing spots and islands...around the house, we really loved our nightly corn hole tournaments while grilling out & enjoying the pool! We'll be back!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited this area for the past 7 years and stayed in different homes through VRBO, but this is by far the best home we have stayed in. Bart was very nice to deal with and gave us tons of information from places to eat, fish and sandbars. Their house is beautiful and accommodated our family very well. The kids really enjoyed the pool when we were not at the nearby sandbars. We would definitely vacation here again and want to thank Bart and Amy for sharing their beautiful home with us.

Owner's Response: It's great to hear how much you enjoyed our home and pool and how well it fit your family's needs! With so many areas to beach and sandbar plus all the fun tiki bars it's hard to visit them all. We hope you can make it back soon...

Luxury Key West style vacation home located on the Inter coastal Waterway Marker 28 at Gasparilla Pass! Only 5 houses in on a canal with 60 feet of brand new dock age, loaded with amenities this vacation dream home has it all. Pristene beaches are just across the water on Boca Grande or Little Gasparilla island, with some of the best shelling in Florida. Enjoy the island feel but have the convenience of a Public less than a mile away. Travel by car or boat to numerous fine waterfront restaurants. Enjoy watching Ospreys and Manatees right from your dock. Relax with a good book while the kids build sand castles in the beach sand or fish for snook and reds from the dock! There are a number of golf courses to choose from or spend the day fishing on your boat or have a guide pick you up right from your dock. Keep cool in the oversized pool and grill burgers on the charcoal grill or perhaps take short cruise on your boat to Cabbage Key for a Cheeseburger in Paradise. Rent kayaks or paddle boards and explore the backwaters around the island of Don Pedro State Park which is just across the Inter coastal Waterway to the North. Deep sea fishing charters leave daily from the Placida Village and Boca Grande. Movie theaters, antique shops and cafes are all within a short drive. This home is sure to meet your needs weather your looking to relax in a tropical environment or keep your days full with boating activities.
