About Marguerite Tremelin

We live in NE Ohio but have been visiting the beautiful island of Boca Grande since 1986. Many vacations with our two children, and a few parents-only trips, kept us coming back to the island again and again. Lighthouse is everything we dreamed about in a beach home: right on a gorgeous, quiet beach; walking distance to town; enough bedrooms for friends and family; cozy and comfortable. We love it and know you will, too.

Marguerite Tremelin purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Marguerite Tremelin chose Boca Grande

We always dreamed of having a home here on the island, so Lighthouse #15 is truly a dream come true for us. We live on the island from October to May and have our beach home decorated and outfitted for our own pleasure. Everything about it is much nicer than a typical rental property. Look at the pictures and notice the paneled ceilings, gourmet kitchen, beautiful decor, original art and high-end furniture. Our rates are right in line or lower than other rentals, some with just two bedrooms. Compare and see. I know you will love our home here.

What makes this townhome unique

Walk barefoot from front door to the beach, thanks to decking added on ground level.

Map

Our address is 29O Gulf Blvd., #15. The GPS locator seems to site our place too far north on a street map. Instead, look at a map and find the intersection of Pilot Street and Gulf Blvd. Our place is DIRECTLY across Gulf Blvd. from Pilot Street, right on the Gulf of Mexico.

Wonderful family vacation at lighthouse #15

  • 4 of 5

Lighthouse #15 was a perfect townhouse for our family vacation. Our 18 & 20 year old enjoyed a week with Mom and Dad when there was so much room to spread out. The rental had everything we needed. All the beds were very comfortable. Everyone enjoyed the outdoor shower and the nightly movies we watched together in the family room. We rented a golf cart for the week, went kayaking and walked the beach. Nothing beat starting and ending every day on the screened in porch looking out at the ocean.

Just OK

  • 3 of 5

Boca Grande is our favorite place in the world, but for the first time in more than 40 years, we were ready to leave early. The condo is a solid OK. It was clean, and the view if beautiful. The draw back for this unit is primarily the outdated A/C. The downstairs bedroom is next to the air handler, and every time it turns on it sounds like an airplane is taking off. It runs loud until it turns off again. Also, the vent in the downstairs bedroom and living room blow so hard there is a constant wind blowing on folks watching tv. In the bedroom, even closing some of the vent doesn't stop the wind. The downstairs bedroom freezes if the upstairs bedrooms are comfortable. If the downstairs isn't freezing, the upstairs is hot. No happy medium.

This is picky, but the place is quite crowded (downstairs living area and porch,and on the outside ground floor porch) with furniture. It is difficult to navigate the porch with so much furniture. Again, that's being picky.

Finally, the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, etc., but there is not a single shelf for food. Staying in a small place for a week with no place for groceries (other than loading the counter space) definitely wasn't ideal.

Having said all that. It is Boca Grande, which is always great. It is on the beach. It is clean.

Wonderful Place!!

We absolutely loved this beach house! It was wonderfully decorated all around! This was one of the most updated beach houses we have stayed in. It has everything you could ever need in a beach house. Well stocked kitchen for all of our cooking needs. Great location! Enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the porch every night! We would definitely stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the input but wish you would be more specific about your suggestion. Everything in our beach home has been replaced within the last five years, including new flooring and furniture on the main floor and a bathroom renovation upstairs in 2016.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, inside the Art work and décor, were amazing. We did not lack a thing. I brought things I did not use because they were already there. My family had the rest and relaxation we needed. Each day was beautiful and the water delightful, we recommend sisters and South beach when dinning out.

We are thinking about next year.

Thanks a bunch for a wonderful stay.
