About Bart & Amy Blessing

Coming from a boating family and continuing that tradition with our 3 young children we have vacationed and boated on just about every waterway in Florida. We value Faith, Family and Friends; we work hard in our careers, school and sports and this is our little tropical paradise where we can relax and rejuvenate from our busy schedules.

Bart & Amy Blessing purchased this house in 2012

Why Bart & Amy Blessing chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

The Boca Grande area offers a vast number of unique activities that no other destination can match. There is world class inshore and offshore fishing, tiki bars and sand bars, fine dinning or a cheeseburger in paradise on Cabbage Key. Venture out on a kayak or paddle board, hunt for sharks teeth and shells along the beach or catch a wave on a surf board. Simply put you can spend a week here and do something completely different every day! We choose this home because of it's Key West style and island feel, we wanted water access that was less than 5 minutes to the pass. We like to spread out and have some privacy so a condo would not work and we wanted access by car to the grocery store or what every our needs may be. We were blessed to come across this property and we enjoy it immensely. When we can't be there we enjoy having our friends experience our tropical paradise.

What makes this house unique

Less than 1/2 mile to Publix!

Cozy house with pool near beach

  • 4 of 5

My wife and kids had such a nice time at this house and location. Clean and neat, with a nice covered pool, the house had everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Owners could not have been nicer. About 15 min drive to Boca Grande beach; 2 minutes to grocery store; and several restaurants nearby. We rented a boat at Gasparilla Marina--3 mins from house---and saw dolphins, manatees, and all sorts of wildlife. Owners provided beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, two sea kayaks, and beach games. Kitchen is dated but has everything you need; washer and dryer was nice to have. Air conditioning worked well, and house is bright and cheery. If you want to unwind in a quiet place near beach with a pool, can't beat this place. Owners could not have been nicer.

The house, the location, and the pool were all great! My family and I had a great time, it's close to great restaurants, tackle shops/bait shops, and grocery stores. The area is super quiet day and night. Bart is very helpful and was available anytime we needed him. The pool is big, and kept up really nice. My family and I will definitely be back.

Return visit

  • 5 of 5

Returning for our third year, we continued to enjoy the peacefulness of the area but also were "tourists" this year. We toured Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte Harbor and The Gasparilla Inn, Boca Grande. Hit the Shell Factory and discovered a shopping mall in Port Charlotte. Experienced a few different restaurants and found the Cape Haze bike/walking trail. A very pleasant return visit!

Relaxing escape!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean home with everything you might need. A perfect place to get away from the daily routine of life. Quiet neighborhood, low traffic, close to a grocery and restaurants. Near beautiful Boca Grande with lovely beaches and beautiful blue water. Love using the kayaks! Great place to entertain friends or share with grandchildren. Bart is very accommodating and prompt with communications. Enjoyed our relaxing time away from home!

Luxury Key West style vacation home located on the Inter coastal Waterway Marker 28 at Gasparilla Pass! Only 5 houses in on a canal with 60 feet of brand new dock age, loaded with amenities this vacation dream home has it all. Pristene beaches are just across the water on Boca Grande or Little Gasparilla island, with some of the best shelling in Florida. Enjoy the island feel but have the convenience of a Public less than a mile away. Travel by car or boat to numerous fine waterfront restaurants. Enjoy watching Ospreys and Manatees right from your dock. Relax with a good book while the kids build sand castles in the beach sand or fish for snook and reds from the dock! There are a number of golf courses to choose from or spend the day fishing on your boat or have a guide pick you up right from your dock. Keep cool in the oversized pool and grill burgers on the charcoal grill or perhaps take short cruise on your boat to Cabbage Key for a Cheeseburger in Paradise. Rent kayaks or paddle boards and explore the backwaters around the island of Don Pedro State Park which is just across the Inter coastal Waterway to the North. Deep sea fishing charters leave daily from the Placida Village and Boca Grande. Movie theaters, antique shops and cafes are all within a short drive. This home is sure to meet your needs weather your looking to relax in a tropical environment or keep your days full with boating activities.
