Boca Grande Beach House - Great Price! Great Location!

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Boca Grande Beach House is a one-story duplex. Our house has four bedrooms, two kitchens, two bathrooms, and two combination living room/dining rooms. The kitchens were completely remodeled in 2013 and the bathrooms were completely remodeled in 2016. There is a large screened-in porch, a small front patio and a generous side yard with table, chairs and chaise lounge. You can choose to rent two bedrooms or four bedrooms, please call or email for clarification on pricing.

The house is located directly across the street from a 7 mile, white sand beach with an unobstructed view of the sunset. It is located just to the north of and across from the historic Boca Grande Lighthouse Beacon. It is a short walk to the charming village of Boca Grande and the Boca Grande Community Center with a workout room, play ground and library with internet access. Tennis courts are at the end of our street. The seven mile jog/bike path runs directly in front of the property.

Once you on the island, you do not need a car. Golf carts and bikes can be rented in town. I can recommend a reasonable van service to pick you up at the following airports: Sarasota Airport (SRQ) 1hr. 20min., Ft. Myers (RSW) 1hr. 30min., Tampa (TPA) 2 hrs, Miami (MIA) 3 hrs.

About Molly Thompson

This photo was taken in Dec.2011, when our family gathered at Boca Grande to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. We have all enjoyed our visits to the island over the years. Mike and I live in FL, about 11/2 hrs. away, and are very 'hands on' making sure that everything is clean and in good order for our guests.

Molly Thompson purchased this house in 1986

Why Molly Thompson chose Boca Grande

Our family is very fortunate that my parents, who have vacationed in Boca Grande since the 1970's, had the foresight to purchase this property. It has been a wonderful place for our family to gather and enjoy over the years. We all feel a special attachment to Boca Grande.

What makes this house unique

The house is casual and comfortable. It is in a terrific location on a large corner lot, directly across the road from the beach and an easy walk to town. Most of our guests choose to return year after year and consider it their 'home away from home'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a fabulous vacation location. The home was very nicely decorated, new kitchen appliance, freshly painted, and very clean. The large back porch allowed our family to spend great times together. Would highly recommend.

Great Place To Stay While Visiting Boca Grande!

  • 5 of 5

Me, My best friend and his dad drove down from the Carolina's to find this awesome place waiting on us. Nice and clean and just one street from the beach. We fished with a local guide for 3 days catching tarpon, goliath grouper and permit. We ate each night at local restaurants and just found it to be an all around great place to visit. Everyone was super nice and helpful in the area. Molly checked in with us via text to confirm we found the house and that all was well... and that it was. The last day she was kind enough to extend out checkout so we would not be rushed after our fishing charter.

Highly recommended and will certainly come back to stay again in this house!

Thanks Molly!

Cute Island Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Boca Grande for a wedding and decided to stay at BGBH for the weekend due to it's location and price. We were pleasantly surprised by the house. It is a duplex and we had the south unit. There is a spacious screened in patio that is very cozy. They also provide an outdoor sitting area nestled under some beautiful trees. We sat out there and enjoyed the weather. The beach is RIGHT across the street and there is an awesome light house there too. We used the light house as a point of reference while navigating our way around the island. There are golf cart paths every where so you can rent one for the weekend and drive around in that. The a/c gets very cold and the beds are very comfortable. Molly made the payment and checking in so easy. I hope I get a chance to come back and visit again.

I'd give 6 stars if I could

  • 5 of 5

The BGBH is my annual destination for a reason. It starts with Molly making the rental process so easy, seamless! Not to mention the home is spotless upon arrival. BGBH is in a PRIME location on the island, I've stayed at 4 other spots over the years and this is hands-down the best. It's a short walk(5 min) or cart ride(1 min) to town. No matter your preferences, BGBH caters to all. If you like to lounge on the beach, it's across the street(awesome beach chairs provided). If you like to fish, it's world class fishing including tarpon (3min cart ride/10min walk to marina). If you want to ride a bike or go for a run, the path is right in front of the house. If a Farmer's market is your thing, it's on your street. We do some fishing while in BG and cook right there at the BGBH. All utensils/amenities provided including a grill.....too easy! If you want a clean place(newly updated bathrooms) with an awesome location, look no further. I just returned home from BG and have already requested to stay again in 2018. Enough said. Thanks again to Molly and Mike for everything, top notch!

Perfect Boca Grande Rental

  • 5 of 5

We discovered the Beach House 5 years ago and have never looked back. The location is perfect (across from beach, easy walk to town, tennis courts and farmer's market on OUR street), the size is perfect (2 bedrooms, a LARGE screened porch and a comfortably sized living room for a relaxing evening or a gathering), the cleanliness is notable (always spotless when we show up- very important to me), and the maintenance and upgrades are equally noteworthy (new kitchen and bathroom- well designed and well equipped). We couldn't be happier with the Beach House and we return every year for that reason.

Feels like home in Boca Grande

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd stay at the Beach House. I love spending a few days in Boca Grande and the Beach House is perfectly located across from the beach and within walking distance of both the village and the lighthouse. The owners are constantly updating the unit which now has a remodeled bathroom in addition to a very nice, very well equipped kitchen. Having the washer and dryer means I can pack less which I appreciate and having Wi-Fi is always helpful. I can't imagine staying any where else in Boca Grande.
