Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, beachfront condo right on the ocean. The property faces west giving it all day sun and spectacular year round sunsets. Located on the ground floor, this unit provides quick and easy access to some of the best beaches in America offering great walking, shelling, swimming or simply relaxing and reading by the ocean.

This unit has been completely renovated and redesigned.

The condo has high speed Wi-Fi throughout, a wall mounted 40 inch Panasonic Plasma flatscreen TV w/DVD with full HD programming in the living area, a 26 inch Samsung flatscreen TV in the bedroom, central AC with an accessible thermostat for individualized comfort, fully tiled floors, a high profile king bed with multiple sets of high thread count 100% cotton sheets, a washer/dryer, ceiling fans in both the bedroom and lanai, light dimmers on almost every switch, and full length curtains with blackout along all the windows to provide total darkness in the early mornings if desired.

Inside and out this unit offers a spectacular way to relax on the edge of the ocean.

The property 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 more casual 'Upper Deck' restaurant, a more formal 'Clubhouse' restaurant at beach level, 3 pools with complimentary towel service (1 with poolside lunch and drink service), a 'Tiki Bar', beach chaises and umbrellas around all of the pools and along the beaches, an expanded and very popular fitness facility, 8 clay tennis courts with 2 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 include Yoga, Aquatics, Zumba, Bridge and Circuit Training. Bicycles and golf carts can both be rented at the Club and both 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 mainland by a short, tolled ($6) causeway, what makes Boca Grande unique are it's miles of beaches and it's tranquil, relaxed, Old Florida feel: no highrises, no malls, no traffic lights, and no neon signs. Despite it's small size, the town on the island is charming with excellent shopping and several very good restaurants.

The unit, the Club, and the island offer privacy, relaxation and rejuvenation....a fantastic vacation get away.

Why The Owner chose Boca Grande

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 and 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 though we really like it's 'Old Florida' feel (which we find very appealing) 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 gives 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 at the beach walking, reading or simply lying in the sun.....which are all pretty nice alternatives.

What makes this condo unique

The first thing we do when we arrive in Boca and the last thing we do before we leave is to walk the beaches. Regarded as some the best beaches in America, they are truly spectacular.

The walk to the beach from our place takes about a minute. If we turn right when we get there, we can walk for about an hour until the beach 'runs out' at a private residence's boat dock. And if we turn left, it takes a couple of hours to effectively walk all the way to town. We've only ever done that once and the bottoms of our feet hurt for days.

Dolphins are a reasonably frequent occurrence on our beach walks and manatees, which are large, spectacular sea animals, can be seen just off the shoreline on very special occasions.

Boca is also known as the 'tarpon capital of the world'. Tarpon are reputedly one of the best sporting fish there are. Weighing in at 100-200 lbs they put up 'fights' that when caught are pretty thrilling. We're not 'fisher people' but we've arranged to do this several times over the years with some of the island captains and the experience has always been pretty exciting. It's all 'catch and release' so these magnificent creatures are thrown back just after being caught.

Sensational Sunset Condo in Bocha Grande

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Bocha Grande. Mack's condo was perfect for the two of us. The location was fabulous. It is just a short walk from the condo to the pool/clubhouse . We had a week of sunshine and sunsets. We enjoyed watching the sunset each night with a cocktail on the beach just steps away. We celebrated our anniversary at the Bocha Grande club. The food was fabulous. We enjoyed the casual dining in the upper floor and at the tiki bar by the pool as well. We rented a golf cart and road into town for some of our meals. Mack's recommendations were spot on! The condo itself is clean and beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to prepare our lunches and breakfasts. I recommend this condo for a nice and relaxing get away.

Five-Star Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This charming condo looks to be straight out of a "Coastal Living" magazine feature and not only that, it has all the amenities you need for a great vacation. The view is stellar and you can walk right out to the gorgeous beach. The HVAC works, the spacious bathroom has two sinks, the kitchen is well-equipped, the TV's are great and wi-fi reliable. The Boca Grande Club has a nice pool and thatched-roof pool bar as well as an excellent tennis facility and very good restaurant. The helpful owners leave you coffee, wine and snack nuts - perfect to get you started on a beach holiday. This was our third time there and as usual, we hated to leave. Love love love this place!
