Overview

Boca Grande House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Boca Grande Beach House is a one-story duplex. This house has four bedrooms, two kitchens, two bathrooms, and two combination living room/dining rooms. There is a large screened-in porch, a small front patio and a generous side yard with table, chairs and chaise lounge. You can choose to rent two bedrooms or four bedrooms, please call or email for clarification on pricing.

The house is located directly across the street from a 7 mile, white sand beach with an unobstructed view of the sunset. It is located just to the north of and across from the historic Boca Grande Lighthouse Beacon. It is a short walk to the charming village of Boca Grande and the Boca Grande Community Center with a workout room, play ground and library with internet access. Tennis courts are at the end of our street. The seven mile jog/bike path runs directly in front of the property.

Once you on the island, you do not need a car. Golf carts and bikes can be rented in town. I can recommend a reasonable van service to pick you up at the following airports: Sarasota Airport (SRQ) 1hr. 20min., Ft. Myers (RSW) 1hr. 30min., Tampa (TPA) 2 hrs, Miami (MIA) 3 hrs.

About Molly Thompson

This photo was taken in Dec.2011, when our family gathered at Boca Grande to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. We have all enjoyed our visits to the island over the years. Mike and I live in FL, about 11/2 hrs. away, and are very 'hands on' making sure that everything is clean and in good order for our guests.

Molly Thompson purchased this house in 1986

Why Molly Thompson chose Boca Grande

Our family is very fortunate that my parents, who have vacationed in Boca Grande since the 1970's, had the foresight to purchase this property. It has been a wonderful place for our family to gather and enjoy over the years. We all feel a special attachment to Boca Grande.

What makes this house unique

The house is casual and comfortable. It is in a terrific location on a large corner lot, directly across the road from the beach and an easy walk to town. Most of our guests choose to return year after year and consider it their 'home away from home'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a fabulous vacation location. The home was very nicely decorated, new kitchen appliance, freshly painted, and very clean. The large back porch allowed our family to spend great times together. Would highly recommend.

Our best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

My wife and shared the very best for eight days. The house was perfect, we didn't need anything but our food. We were able to do a bike ride every morning, enjoy a great breakfast and walk across the road and spend time on the beach. The center of town was a very short walk from the beach house. But we just enjoyed the house so much we spent most of our time there We live in a area that has beaches, oceans, casinos, all type of entertainment. Molly's beach house beats all of it. We plan to visit Boca Grande next May and of course we plan to stay at the perfect location "Molly's Beach House"

OLD FRIENDS REUNION

  • 5 of 5

There were 6 of us who have been friends for over 30 years and this was a perfect place for a beach reunion (as we all used to be sun goddesses in our youth). Luckily we learned over the years to wear sunscreen and no one was burned. Molly's Beach House was the most ideal place for us to have our reunion. The patio porch was a big hang out hit and we spent a lot of time on the porch for coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening before walking across the street to the beach for the fantastic sunset. Molly was easily accessible; and responsive with answers to any questions. Good restaurants within walking distance. Definitely will return to this beach house either with my OLD FRIENDS or any NEW FRIENDS.

Wonderful home to stay in!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Boca Grande for a wedding and loved the house the moment we walked into the porch. Everything about the house was wonderful. It is clean, comfortable, in a terrific location and well equipped with everything. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Molly was fantastic, and very easy to work with. This was our first time renting a VRBO and was an excellent experience all around.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location! Walking distance to downtown and a quick jaunt to the beach right across the street. It was so clean and very well equipped. Even had the perfect beach chairs with cup holders! The house made for a perfect vacation. We felt right at home.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We came down for our first expedition to tag a Greater Hammerhead shark for our non profit - Coastal Shark Tagging Initiative. Unlucky for us, we went the week without landing a shark, however the team next to us tagged and released a 12'2 hammer.

The area is beautiful and the house was very nice and everything we could have needed was thought of. We plan on coming again next year, I would highly recommend.
