About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6 comfortably

Set yourself apart from other beach rentals in one of the only single-family rental homes, with pool, available on Boca Grande. Entirely renovated a few years ago with new appliances, flat-panel TVs, furniture, fixtures, baths, flooring, and in-ground heated pool, it sleeps 6 comfortably, and up to 8 including sofa bed. The property is adjacent to a tropical nature preserve, which offers privacy for your vacation, not found in condos, townhomes or even most other single-family house rentals (you’re on Boca Grande to escape everyday life – don’t stay in a place where you’ll be disturbed by others). Enjoy meals on the screened-in lanai overlooking the new secluded heated pool which starts at zero depth, ideal for small children, reaching 5 feet for adults. One minute walk to the best Gulf beaches, great for swimming or shelling. Walk, jog or bike on the nearby paved path to anywhere on the island, including the quaint town with great restaurants and shopping. See link to video of the home.

Unrestricted beach access: As our guest you have legal access to a private footpath leading to the beach

About Emma and Jim

Our family loves vacationing in Boca Grande. Here's a picture of us on the back balcony.

Emma and Jim purchased this house in 2005

Why Emma and Jim chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We've stayed in places all over Florida and can safely say that Boca Grande is one of a kind. It's special place because it feels like you're in a small community of friends who appreciate the island lifestyle. We like to call it the 'land time time forgot' because people are friendly and everything is pristine, like when we were kids. There are no chain stores or chain fast-food restaurants and no amusement park rides. Fun is made by going to the beach, playing in the pool and exploring the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great pool for the kids, proximity to beach, and pots/pans/kitchen. Master suite is great - incl deck.

Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but good things to say about this property and its owners! The house is immaculate and the location is perfect. My family (4 of us, including a 4 year old and almost 2 year old) truly enjoyed everything--dinners on the screened porch, swimming in the pool (which was perfect for young kids with a shallow 'zero depth' entry), relaxing at the beach. This was our second trip to 414 Kidd St., and we will definitely be returning!! Jim addressed questions/concerns in a timely manner, and everything we needed for a relaxing vacation was provided. Boca Grande is a wonderful destination; make sure to rent a golf cart to explore the island!!

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and nicely appointed. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare family meals. The beach is just a short walk across the street...very convenient! We used the wagon (two onsite, but we only needed one) and the umbrella/chairs that were provided for our trips to the beach. The pool was nice and very private. For dining out and shopping, it's a short golf cart ride to town. Overall, great beach house and ideal location!

Great Property and owners!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very nicely decorated, has everything you may need to prepare meals, towels, beach items etc. They do have a pack n play and high chair, I should've have read that before buying them, now they have two high chairs LOL. We have stayed her twice and absolutely love it. Should you have any issues during your stay, the owners are very quick to respond and truly want your stay to be perfect! Very short walk to the beach and it is very private. The island itself is fabulous and not crazy busy like a lot of areas in Florida. I would highly recommend this property! Thanks again Jim and Emma!!!

We just returned from 414 Kidd ST. The rental is well appointed with everything you would need when you are home -away from home.

The great room was very comfortable for all to enjoy,/ the kitchen's open concept to dinning room & great room was just wonderful..The bedrooms all a nice size with TV'S in each room for one to enjoy if one wished, beds all comfortable for sleeping.

This home is immaculate and clean.

The outdoor areas had all the perks one would want big pool, large screened in porch for barbq.& dinning with table & chairs then another area by the pool was a 2nd set of table & chairs. to enjoy your cold beverages!!!!!This rental is assume.

There was ample room for all our autos & boat trailer in the yard, our 17ft.mako boat was great to discover the barrier island that were all close by.

We rented a golf cart for the week which proved again to be the best way to get around Boca Grande! We never move the auto's till we departed the island! I would encourage renters to rent a golf cart get around.

We have vacationed in Boca Grande for 10 yrs.and are already looking forward to our return ,we only live 130 miles north of this beautiful (old florida paradise.) We plan to return to this great home!

Correspondence with the owner's was spot on! Thank you Emma & Jim for your beautiful home. P&B / Tarpon Springs FL.

A beautiful house in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a wonderful family holiday in this house. The house is so well equipped and the pool with extended shallow area was absolutely perfect for my 1 and 2 year olds.

Owners put so much effort in to making sure you have a hassle free experience and are extremely responsive. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay :)

Car: recommended

Located on south end of Gasparilla Island which is secluded and offers the best beaches on the island (as our guest you have legal access to a private footpath leading to the beach). Only 10-15 min walk to town or travel like the locals on golf carts which is only a 5 minute ride (carts and bikes can be rented in town). Gasparilla Island offers great restaurants for fine dining or a casual lunch. Visitors say the island has a charm of traditional Florida that can't be found anywhere else. Great place for snow birds to relax or for couples with young children who want to spend quality time at the beach, pool or riding bikes.

Other Activities: Miles of paved bike paths
