Overview

Boca Grande Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Boca Grande is a seven mile long island in the gulf of Mexico accessible by bridge. Our condominium is only 50 yards from the water, has a great view of the gulf of Mexico, and is fully furnished.

The town is like Sanibel without all the people. There are no high rise buildings, and relatively few condominiums. Our condo is on the best beach on the island.

The sunsets are spectacular, shelling is terrific, with sand dollars plentiful most of the year. The dolphins are regular visitors, the fishing in front of the condo is very good.

For bird watchers, the island is home to numerous osprey nests, and eagle nests are off island. Tarpon fishing at the end of the island in spring-summer is world famous. Several excellent golf courses nearby. The quaint shops carry beautiful merchandise.

Our smoke-free condo has all new appliances, leather couches, new ceramic tile in most areas, new dining room furniture, and is newly painted. It is a first floor end unit so you have extra light and relaxing breezes.

No walkway behind master bedroom guarantees privacy. Parking is under the building. Two porches, one open, one screened. Most meals are eaten outside on the porch. Friends tell us a visit to the condo is like going to Hawaii, but for a lot less money.

Visitors regularly include celebrities. Katherine Hepburn came here for years. The Bush family has spent several Christmas holidays here, as have a number of movie stars. The island was used for the recent Denzel Washington movie 'Out of Time'.

About Joy Flaherty

Dennis and I are from MN and Mich (UP) and currently live in Davenport, Iowa. We always think of ourselves as Florida people with one foot on the beaches at Boca! We love to walk the 7 mile beach and bike to the 'Inlet ' for breakfast by water every morning.

Joy Flaherty purchased this condo in 2003

Why Joy Flaherty chose Boca Grande

We visited Florida many times as my, Mom, Eddy, spent the winters in Pt Charlotte. One day, we visited the small island of Boca Grande and fell in love! We purchased our first Boca property in 1985.

We love the 'old Florida feel' with it's slower pace to enjoy all of nature's beauty. Rent bikes or a golf cart and do not use your car for the whole vaca and truely relax!

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is on the 'sun' side of the building so you will be able to enjoy the Fl sunshine all day. We also have an end unit with it's own special views.

Guests enjoy cooking in our well stocked kitchen and using our fun, colorful Fiesta ware.

We 'fluff up' our unit on a regualr basis to insure your every comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The renovations to the kitchen and master bath were fantastic and enjoyed by our family. The unit was very clean. I was relieved that there were sand chairs available for our use, since we forgot ours. We had everything we needed and even perfect weather.

Thanks.

Our week in PARADISE!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Joy/Dennis, thank you so very much for allowing us to share in your little island paradise last week. It was more than we could have hoped for. The condo was clean, spacious, colorful and the decor showed your love for sunny beaches and gentle breezes. We loved breakfast in the the morning in the screened-in lanai, listening to the birds and smelling the wonderful jasmine in full bloom in the courtyard. The pool and surrounding area was immaculate and visited frequently by us and several families enjoying some get-a-way time. Beach walks were amazing and shell collecting was abundant. Your pre-trip tips you gave us on things to do and places to eat was a blessing. Our dining experinces, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner were excellent. Despite what I'm sure was a long peak season the locals treated us like they were really glad to see us. A smile, a cheery hello how are you,or what can I do for you made it real easy for us to adjust to "Island Time". I may have gotten off the subject of reviewing your condo but we've always looked at our overall experience on vacation as the review. And I will say the focal point of our experience was your condo. Our days started and ended there with many relaxing moments in between. Those who have stayed at your condo feel the same way we do (I've read the reviews), and that's the reason so many book return visits. And that's why we'll be back. Thank-you again for opening up your home to us and making this one of the nicest vacations we've ever had. We'll be in touch. Jeff & Chantal

A wonderful place in the south Florida sun

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely condo for 2 weeks from Oct 29, 2011. The condo is spacious and comfortable and is even better then described. The kitchen is very well equiped with everything you could possibly need. It was wonderful to have breakfast on the balcony in the morning sun. The condo has a view of the courtyard, pool and beach. We spent most of our time on the beach or in the pool. We enjoyed the restaurants on Boca Grande too! This is a wondeful location in which you can rest and relax or actively swim, fish , play tennis or walk the beach,
We hope to return next year and would not hesitate to recommend this condo.

Sea Oats in September

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are here with our son, his wife and their almost three-year old daughter. We have enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful condo. Our granddaughter has made great strides in her swimming due to the pool on the property. Beach access is wonderful. The condo is as beautiful and comfortable as the photographs portray. And the grounds are immaculate. There is nothing we would change about the condo or Sea Oats. Joy was very easy and pleasant to work with. We highly recommend this condo!!!

Gasparilla in August

  • 5 of 5
We had another wonderful 2 weeks here at the condo. Our first time here in August and it was a pleasant time. Not as hot as we were expecting as this was the afternoon rainy season. It didn't keep us off the beach or out by the pool. We are always so comfortable here with everything we could want. It makes us feel like we are coming back home each year. Thanks again for opening your condo to us. We are looking forward to coming back next year and each one after that.

Wow! How Wonderful Was Our Stay! Thanks Joy!

  • 5 of 5
A week at Joy and Dennis' condo was much too short. Having been born and raised in Boca Grande (South end of the island) and wanting to see old friends, etc. I will need to go for about two weeks next time.The condo was so comfortable it was difficult to just leave and go visit and sightsee as much as we'd have liked.
My two friends who joined me had a great time, and I'm sure will be happy to share it with me next time.
You will find everything you need and then some in this lovely condo. Joy has thought of EVERYTHING.
I have several friends who want info on contacting Joy, and I recommend it highly to anyone wanting a wonderful home away from home.

Booked for 2012

  • 5 of 5
We love our 3 week April vacations spent in this unit (this is our 2nd year here), this is a beautifully furnished unit, very well equipped. We do hope to return for many more years.

As before, we rarely left the Island, no need to, just for groceries and visiting friends. There are lots of families with little ones here, lots of grandparents with family visiiting. Many people enjoy fishing on the private beach. We visited the village as in other years, lots of good restaurants if you wish to eat out.

Thanks Joy and Dennis, for renting your beautiful unit, we have met Joy in previous years, and this year we also met her husband Dennis, which was fun.
