Banyan Bend beach house is owned by a family who enjoyed the island for 2 years and decided they loved it so much they wanted a house to be able to visit with their growing family to create lasting memories. Eventually they hope to retire to the island.
Sarah Rapp purchased this house in 2013
They enjoy the quaintness of downtown Boca Grande and wanted an island with beautiful beaches as well as one they could walk, bike, and jog around. An island in which they could vacation and just relax with sunrises and sunsets but also one that offered family members who preferred more than the beach -the ease of walking, biking, fishing, jogging, or playing tennis close to home.
With our family being in California, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Florida we really value creating family memories and having vacation time together. We bought this house because it offers lots of space for the whole family and we love the layout for vacation together. Vacationing with children can sometimes be a challenge and the house offers togetherness yet a way to have time to yourself or quiet time with your child. We truly hope you enjoy your stay on the island and in our home.
this 6 bedroom 6 bath house is perfect for a large group. we had two families with children plus grandparents. The lower level was perfect for the children who had their own living room and refrigerator. the main level is so extensive that it gives great privacy to members of a large group. Two huge screen porches complete the picture. the backyard is large enough for play and the beach is 4 minute walk. the house is well equipped, with a luxurious kitchen. all in all, a great spot
The Boca Grande Community Center is within walking distance to our home. They have a wonderful exercise facility, playground and many other amenities you can enjoy. The Johann Fust Community Library is an island jewel. Boca Grande offers world class fishing too!
