We're New Yorkers, one of us a Canadian, and we discovered Burnt Store Marina in 2004. We bought our Grande Isle, Burnt Store Marina condo a year later and spent as much time as we could here before making it our permanent home in 2009.
Brian McGraw purchased this condo in 2005
Burnt Store Marina provides a total lifestyle for the golfer, tennis player, boater and fisherman located on protected Charlotte Harbor, a harbor second in size only to Tampa Bay along the west coast, with unparalleled ease of access to the Gulf of Mexico. Burnt Store Marina is close to two airports: SW Florida (Fort Myers) and Punta Gorda Airport. It is the midway point for sightseeing and touring between Sarasota to the north and Naples to south, each just over 60 miles away. The small, historic, Peace River town of Punta Gorda is 20 minutes north and provides dining, arts and main-street shopping. 20 minutes south is the Key West-style fishing village and arts community of Matlacha known for its art galleries, pastel-painted businesses, and 'the fishing-est bridge' where at any time in 24 hours some will be fishing. For malls and city entertainment Fort Myers is 35 minutes away.
Burnt Store Marina provides boating and fishing at our doorstep, unparalleled water views, and easy boat access to the beautiful barrier islands and beaches of Cayo Costa, Captiva, Sanibel and Boca Grande. It provides a quiet, secure place to live and play and enjoy the unique natural setting that is SW Florida. Yet, a short drive away are the airports, highways, entertainment, and shopping of city and town life.
Anyone staying in this condo will absolutely love it. Not only is the condo spacious and beautifully decorated but the view is like a beautiful painting and every day and every night it is different. The sunsets you will see from your balcony are superb and the stars at night will take your breath away.
You will see manatee and their young right outside your balcony heading up the river to the yacht area. You can see them up close and personal by the docks. From the time you pass through the gates you will notice the manicured grounds.
Joanne is a wealth of knowledge of many interesting venues that you can take advantage of while you are there if you so choose.
Just pack your toothbrush because Joanne and Brian have thought of everything you could need and everything is top of the line.
Enjoy – we certainly did.

Great condo, outstanding views and all the amenities.
In the month we spent at Burnt Store Marina we had delightful times visiting the quaint stores in Matlacha and found some very nice restaurants. We also visited Sarasota and visited the swamp in Everglades city. It is a bit of a drive there but well worth the time.
We had a wonderful relaxing time and we thank the owners for the use of their condo.
Not only is this is condo lovely – the amenities first rate, the views terrific and the owners very accommodating, the entire atmosphere of the building and the other residents made for a perfect holiday. There are lots of social events happening in the building to which short term renters are more than welcome to attend. In the four weeks we spent at Burnt Store Marina we attended a community Christmas dinner, went on an excursion to a German restaurant with several other couples, watched football on the big screen TV in the community room and were surprised and delighted when several residents organized a surprise birthday party for my husband’s 75th. We made several friends in the building and are looking forward to seeing them again.
We loved the quaint artistic stores in nearby Matlacha and found the many enjoyable restaurants and cultural events in Punta Gorda “right up our alley”. All in all, this was the prefect holiday for us and we want to thank the owners for the use of their lovely home and for helping us settle in.
Burnt Store Marina is a prime location for boating, sailing, and fishing. Located on Charlotte Harbor, it is a 10 mile boat run west to Boca Grande Pass leading into the Gulf of Mexico. This gated community includes a public golf course with dining, tennis and fitness center, two restaurants, a waterside bar and ships' store.
