Description

This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom beachfront condo is a ground floor, corner unit that offers quick and easy access to some of the most beautiful beaches in America. There are only 2 floors in this building and 16 units in total so the building and its location are ideal for a quiet and relaxing vacation.
 
With beaches just 50' away, the sights, sounds and smells of the ocean are right on the back doorstep. Facing west, the property gets all day sun and spectacular sunsets throughout the year.
 
The unit was completely renovated in the summer/fall of 2018 so everything is brand new.
   
The master bedroom has a king bed, multiple sets of 100% cotton sheets and a connecting master bathroom. Glass sliding doors into a lanai provide spectacular views of the ocean. The 2nd bedroom has twin XL beds, a wall mounted flatscreen TV and an adjacent bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped. The living room is spacious with a wall mounted 65 inch Samsung flatscreen TV and full HD programming. Secure, high-speed wireless Internet service is provided throughout the unit.
 
A screened-in, open-air lanai faces the Gulf and is a wonderful place to relax and have drinks at the end of a day. The westerly exposure provides for great sunsets. And there is quite commonly a gentle on-shore breeze that is very refreshing in the warm summer months.
 
Vegetation and wildlife just outside the lanai are uniquely southern. Giant turtles can be frequently seen around the property, dolphin sightings are common and occasionally manatees, which are incredibly large, but gentle, sea cows, can be seen along the shoreline.
 
The unit has a washer/dryer, central AC with an accessible thermostat, variable speed ceiling fans in the bedrooms, living room and lanai, a dining table for 6, a communal gas BBQ and an outside deck facing the ocean with 2 'steamer' chairs and a table in between.
 
Our unit is part of the Boca Grande Club which is a gated, 62-acre private residential community on the Gulf side of Gasparilla Island. Amenities offered include the casual 'Upper Deck' restaurant, a more formal 'Clubhouse' restaurant at beach level, 3 pools with complimentary towel service, a 'Tiki Bar', poolside lunch and drink service, beach chaises and umbrellas around the pools and along the beaches, an expanded and very popular fitness facility, 8 clay tennis courts with 3 tennis pros 'in-season' offering organized drills and matches, a small retail tennis shop and a spacious Library/Quiet Room that has books, a TV, comfortable couches and a piano for those times when guests prefer a little 'out of the way' quiet time.
 
Programs offered at the Club include Yoga, Water Aerobics, Bridge and Circuit Training.
 
Bicycles and golf carts can be rented at the Club both of which are excellent ways to explore the island.
 
Boca Grande (formally known as Gasparilla Island) is located off the southwest coast of Florida, north of Naples and south of Sarasota. It is part of the 'barrier chain' of islands that includes Sanibel and Captiva. Connected to the mainland by a short, tolled ($6) causeway, what makes Boca Grande unique are its miles of beaches and its tranquil, relaxed, Old Florida feel: no highrises, no malls, no traffic lights, and no neon signs. Despite its small size, the town on the island is charming with excellent shopping and several very good restaurants.
 
This is a higher end island with property values ranging from $400,000 up to $15 Million. The unit, the Club, and the island offer privacy, relaxation, and rejuvenation....a fantastic vacation getaway.
 

Please note:

- the Building Association, of which we are members, have a minimum 7 day stay between Nov 1 and April 30 which we are obliged to observe

- we ask that travellers please arive and depart on Saturdays or Sundays which we have found best fit most people's vacation schedules

-  and the unit has a lot of light colored fabrics, light colored walls and doors, glass table tops etc and so is not suitable for young kids. Nothing against kids (we have our own) but we just think putting them into this environment would be unfair to both them and their parents. 

 

And just a few things based on our own travel experiences:

- we provide a 'Welcome' package to all guests that includes a bottle of wine (typically a Kendall Jackson Chardonnay), a container of nuts (typically Emerald) and a bag of Starbucks French Roast coffee to get guests 'started' the day after arriving. Travel days are typically long and tiring and in those instances where we've received 'welcome packages' they've been really appreciated.

- well in advance of guest arrivals we provide a somewhat lengthy list of Recommendations to help familiarize guests with what's available at both the Club and on the island.

- we provide a 'How To Use The Condo' booklet that helps guests use, amongst other things, the TV, Alexa the voice activated assistant, connecting to WiFi, appliances etc

- and we have an upgraded Comcast package that gives guests access to a very broad list of entertainment options.

About the Owner

We live in a large North American city where dealing with traffic, stress and frustration is a part of daily life. Boca Grande is at the opposite end of the stress spectrum....the antidote to big city living. The ocean, the beaches, the people and even the vegetation promote relaxation and a refreshingly slow pace. Prior to buying on Boca we'd looked and stayed at a number of Florida locations. We concluded that the east coast of Florida was much busier than we wanted, that Naples and Sarasota, despite their beauty, were too much like the city, and that Longboat Key, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, while closer to what we were looking for, just seemed that much bigger and busier than what Boca Grande had to offer. Boca is a very 'upscale' island, and while we really like it's 'Old Florida' feel we really appreciate that the island has all of the conveniences of modern living including some great restaurants. We're pretty active people and while Boca and the Club give us the opportunity to run, go to the gym, play tennis, golf, fish or go boating, it also gives us the opportunity to spend hours on the beach walking, reading or simply lying in the sun.....all pretty nice alternatives.

Beautiful Boca Grande!
Nancy N.

My family and I just had a wonderful Christmas vacation at Boca Grande! It is a beautiful place. The condo is fabulous and is a perfect size for 3 -4 adults. It is extremely well equipped with everything you’d ever need. The condo was very clean, beds comfortable, and the kitchen was extremely well equipped. We only cooked a few times because there are so many fabulous restaurants around including the one on property at the Boca Grande Club. I highly recommend going there. Mack couldn't have been any nicer, the reservation and payment process went so smoothly. He also provided so much helpful information about the area prior to our trip so that we could plan out the days. I highly recommend visiting Boca Grande and staying in this beautiful condo. I can't wait to return!

exactly as advertised.
John H.

Excellent unit. Well equipped and tastefully decorated. Everything worked, no issues. On a personal note (cause I'm a pretty big guy (250# & 6'1"), the unit could really use a recliner or a chair with a higher back. Also, Mack was extremely responsive, has an excellent write-up to become familiar with the unit, complex and area (including restaurant recommendations). Would be glad to go back.

Excellent condo at Boca Grande Club
John A.

Excellent condo at Boca Grande Club. Beautifully appointed, perfectly maintained, and thoughtfully provisioned with necessities. Owner exceptionally responsive and helpful. On arrival, owner provided a welcoming bottle of wine and Starbucks coffee. Gorgeous, peaceful view of the Gulf from the lanai. Sleeps up to 4; master bedroom and guest bedroom both private. My wife and I took a deep, relaxing breath at this condo, and long to return. Strongest possible recommendation.
