Overview

Boca Grande House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We love our home, and the beautiful island. You will too!!!

Comfortable home, ideal for families with children.

Warm hardwood floors throughout, except for tiled kitchen and bathrooms.

The master bedroom has a king, guest room has a queen and there is a third bedroom (attached to Master, you have to walk through this room to get to the master) with a full bed. There is a pack n play and two twin air mattresses for your use. The house is very spacious, sunny and super comfortable.

We take pride in our home, we have furnished it as if it was not a rental. Look at the pictures and see for yourself. All of the outdoor furniture was replaced in 2015. Our kitchen pots and pans and utensils are nice quality. We like to cook, so we have tried to outfit the kitchen with anything you would need so you don't feel like you need to eat out while enjoying our home.

Seven foot deep heated private pool right out the family room and master bedroom doors. Screened in area off Master Bedroom and dining room. Both over look pool and face Gulf of Mexico. The pool is nice and private, it's a cement pool and was resurfaced a few years ago.

We added new, updated lighting in the house in 2015. Two new, bright chandeliers in the kitchen and dining area and high hats in the master bedroom.

Lots of sun. Bright friendly home. Comfortable beds.

Plenty of towels for showers and beach/pool use.

We replaced the washer and dryer in 2014.

Brand new ac units were installed in the fall of 2015.

We pride our selves on our maintenance of the home. We do not cut corners. We use the home several times a year and want it to be in tip top shape when we are there. So it is in tip top shape when you are there.

Everything has been thought of in this home. There is nothing you will need while vacationing in this quiet home.

Deeded beach access directly across the street. Home is located a half mile south of the historic downtown, 307 Gasparilla St. The beach is a two minute walk from the back steps.

You won't be disappointed with the location.

We have been renting the home for twelve years. We are always improving the home to make it a true home away from home.

Why Steffanie chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We purchased a home on Boca Grande because the location is ideal. We don't have to leave the country to get that 'island' feel. Yet we feel miles away from reality when we are on 'the island'. Florida is nice year round and Boca Grande is even nicer. When we vacation we don't want a big city feel with lots of action and shopping. We want to relax and unwind and spend quality family time. Boca Grande was the perfect choice. Every time we are fortunate enough to visit our home we seem to fall in love with it even more, if that is possible?

What makes this house unique

Our property is unique to other homes on the island because it's one of the only homes in our 'golden beach' neighborhood that has a screened in porch that faces the Gulf of Mexico, instead of other homes on the street. It's exactly a two minute walk to the beach from our back steps. Even though we are not beach front (a dream of ours) the home still has that beachy feeling. Please check out our pictures to get a visual view. You will not be distracted by other homes, the home really stands alone. There is an empty lot across the street and you can watch the Gopher tortoises enjoy the cactus right out the dining room windows. A favorite activity of ours. We furnished our home to feel like a home away from home. All of our guests and friends have told us how comfortable their stays have been. We've decorated it with fun tropical colors and the warm wood floors give it that home away from home feel. We didn't buy the typical 'renter' furniture. Our couches, beds and tables are all user friendly and comfortable. We hope you feel the same way.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank Stephanie for a great week at her property. The house was clean and spacious and a perfect location. My 2 granddaughters loved the warm pool. Everything we needed was there. The wrap around porch was ideal for sitting out especially in the evening.It was a short walk to the beach where we spent a lot of time and enjoyed the sunset. I would love to come back next year. Thank you for sharing your place with us. We felt quite at home and like I said it had everything we needed for a wonderful week. Make sure you rent a golf cart while you are there. It's the best way to get around and a short drive into town.

The home was perfect in many respects - location, amenities, pool. The location on the island was great - close to town, across the street from the beach, and a short golf cart ride anywhere! I'd definitely recommend renting a golf cart as it was a hit with the kids. The house itself had everything you'd need. Beach chairs, umbrella, games, pool toys, towels, paper towels, etc. And the pool was a refreshing treat each day. I'd definitely recommend a stay here.

As for the island, we were there in August. While I knew from prior research that some of the stores/restaurants would be closed, I was quite surprised at how many were closed.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Sunday & noticed the a/c not properly working in master bdrm. We emailed Steffanie & she had the repairman there that same evening. Minor repair & we were cool. Great location, across from beach, with a pool. We enjoyed our stay & would recommend it to others.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

Great location. Wonderful pool and wrap around porch perfect for the ocean weary family. Only a couple of housekeeping dispoinments. The inflatable beds mentioned in the air were punctured and only overhead lighting in the main family room. This is best for a family of 4-5. The master is wonderful. Bikes provided were used often. Owner kept in touch and when I mentioned poor lighting they said they would fix for next guest. Very clean and everything you needed for a home away from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We purchased two new lights for the family room, had no idea they were broken until renter told me. I ordered two new ones the day the renter brought it to my attention. We pride ourselves on taking care of our renters. We have a maintenance man that lives down the street and he is available 27/7. We have also added a beautiful, bright, chandelier over the dining room table. There's a picture of it on the web site. We are in the process of adding another bright light over the kitchen island and adding more lights to the master bedroom. The house was built in the 80's and has typical 80's can lights. We had no idea, until right now, that one of the air mattresses has a hole. I will order and replace the broken mattress. The house sleeps six people max, that is on the listing. The listing clearly states the bedroom with the full sized mattress is attached to the master bedroom. It's a perfect home for a family of four, I agree. That is why we on'y charge $250 a night. As for the bikes, They are not advertised. I do not advertise them on the web site because the salty air has ruined them, two of them were quite expensive. When renters ask me about bikes I tell them we have a few that are not in great condition and that you can rent bikes from the bike store on the island. The other bikes at the home were left by previous renters. Thank you, Steff and Rob

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at other homes on Boca Grande and this is by far the best. The home has everything you want. It is comfortable, relaxing, well decorated and extremely clean. The owner is great! I can't say enough good things about the home or the owner. Looking forward to my stay next year.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could possibly need to have the perfect vacation. The pool is a wonderful bonus with whimsical tile inlays. Just pop across the street to walk the mostly deserted section of the gorgeous gulf beach (deserted even during the high season of early March!). The kitchen is well equipped, the living areas are spacious and cozy. Bikes are available to head to town. There are plenty of games and puzzles for the kidlets if it ever rains---and it never did for our 3 weeks of sunshine! The owner is wonderful to work with and responsive...I felt like I wanted to go out to lunch with her after our interactions!
