Cottage in Boca Grande's Famous Historic District

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

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

Enjoy a bit of history in 'Old Florida.' Step back in time and rent a beautifully renovated 'railroad cottage' in Boca Grande's historic district. Tarpon fishing capital of the world.

Best location on the island. Less than two blocks from historic downtown with restaurants, shopping, and more. Five blocks to the Gulf of Mexico. One block to the world famous Gasparilla Inn whose guests have included some of America's most prominent families for over a century.

Open floor plan with three bedrooms, newly renovated kitchen, two renovated bathrooms, and lots of light. Beautiful sun porch with living and breakfast areas. All brand new appliances. Sleeps 6-8. Great for two to three couples, families, or a romantic getaway cottage for two.

Fish the famous Boca Grande Pass in tarpon season, back-country fishing for snook, redfish, and trout year-round. Go boating and visit the outer islands for dining and exploring including Cabbage Key. Walk some of America's most beautiful beaches with world class shelling. Bike, roller blade, and golf cart rentals nearby to enjoy the island's bike path that follows the old railroad tracks. Lovely historic churches on island within walking distance (Episcopalian, Methodist, Baptist, and Catholic).

Amenities include cable TV, broadband internet, and washer/dryer.

Relaxed and Casual

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in several locations in Boca Grande, and this was one of the best! It was an easy stroll to everything that the town has to offer. The home has three bedrooms and a pull out couch in the living room, which easily accommodated our sons in their early twenties. The house is staffed with the basics and the decorating is comfortable. There is space for everyone to spread out with several work spaces and sitting areas.

Lovely cottage exactly as pictured!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay on Boca Grande. The TV in the living room needs repair, but otherwise all was great.

Beautiful, Charming, Well Kept Home in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I recently spent four nights in this house and loved every minute of our stay. The house is situated right in town, just blocks from local attractions such as the Inn, golf, shopping, restaurants and the beach. You can walk everywhere you need to go. It is also beautifully appointed - the owners have thought of every possible amenity (beach chairs, towels, bikes, an iPod docking station are all included). The house has a lovely, charming Florida feel. It is clean and welcoming. We were incredibly pleased and will be staying here again.
