About Joy and Dennis Flaherty

Picture is from our recent trip to Ireland to do research for our Irish Candy Co. - Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland.

We grew up in MN and MI and currently live in Iowa. We first visited Boca Grande when my Mom, Eddy, moved to Pt Charlotte in 1980 and purchased our first Boca property in 1985.

Please come and enjoy our little piece of 'Old Florida!'

Joy and Dennis Flaherty purchased this condo in 1985

Why Joy and Dennis Flaherty chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We fell in love with the pristine waters and the wonderful, slow pace the island has to offer. You can use a golf cart on the entire island!

We love to ride our bikes on the 7 mile bike path and walk the beaches, finding many unique shells.

What makes this condo unique

We love our very first unit at Boca Grande North with it's special views of BOTH the Gulf and Charlotte Harbor. Water views from every window plus the interior completes the 'feel' with it's nautical theme.

We added a new large screen tv, sound bar and our own dsl Internet. We also have a well stocked kitchen for those dinners on the lenai.

We feel very sentimental about this unit and we've named it after my parents in their honor!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the best family vacaton that we have every had! Walks on the beach, reading on the beach, the boys spending time at the pool, and time for us (parents) to enjoy our own time on the beach.

The condo has everything that you could want in the kitchen, very comfortable furniture that invites you to kick back and relax.

We want to come back to your special place on Boca!

Awesome trip

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very roomy and clean. I would definitely recommend someone going here and staying. The sunset from the front porch is breathtaking and the water view from back porch is wonderful. The fishing is awesome. I would recommend taking a boat if you have one. I drove 10 hours and pulled my boat and it was well worth the trip.

A "grand" location on Boca Grande!

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and convenient condo for the boat and beach-lover family. We had a great week in Joy's condo, with sunrises in our backyard and sunsets in the front. The condo is clean and provides all you need for a week's stay. Our 3 children had plenty of room with the 2 beds in the guest room and the pullout couch in the LR. The kitchen is well-stocked, but bring extra dish soap if you think you'll cook a lot. The boat slip was right our the back of the property, and was essential for a convenient day of boating for us. We rented a golf cart to make the trek into town more fun and "outdoorsy" for the kids, as we plugged in at night in front of the condo. The water views all around it make it for a perfect location, away from town, but not away from the beauty of Boca Grande.

Boca grade north experience

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful experience in such a beautiful place. Next time I would like to see the unit cleaning inspected a little more, but I was already informed by the owner she had addressed the issue and thanked me for my feed back. Favorite part of the unit was the screened in porch and dual views from the front and back of the condo! Would love to use VRBO again!

Tarpon Fishing Heaven

  • 5 of 5

A great condo located on Gasparilla Island at Boca Grande North that did not disappoint. We have been visiting the island for the past ten years for our annual weekly fishing trip and this year decided to try a condo at Boca Grande North and only wish we had found them years ago. The unit was fully furnished and had all the comforts of home and more. The luxury of having your boat directly out our back door in a wet slip was heaven. Without the daily chore of launching and trailering the boat, gave us more time to fish and enjoy time in the evening to visit with each other. We have already reserved the condo for our 2016 trip.
