About the property

Banyan Bend Beach House Has Plenty Of Space For Everyone.

Bring the whole family! This 6 BR/6 BA home has enough space for everyone to enjoy time together. Perfectly appointed to welcome people of any age, Banyan Bend beach house has everything you need for your crowd – a family with infants to grandparents. Utilize the front bedroom for those needing more quiet times for naps or privacy, positioned away from the central area. The lower level, complete with its own family room, consists of 2 bedrooms and bathrooms. This space is ideal for a family of 4 or the perfect getaway for all the kids in the group.

The main floor is the gathering space of this home. Our fully equipped kitchen, comfortable dining room and relaxing family room is the perfect hub of the house where great times together will be had by all. The kitchen is large and with a sub zero refrigerator, Viking stove, oven and warming area, microwave, and two sinks making this a breeze to entertain and cook for many.

If you must stay connected while on vacation the house is equipped with wireless internet and the home office has all you need. You are welcome to utilize the desktop computer, printer, and desk as your personal workspace.

At Banyan Bend beach house you can enjoy both the quiet seclusion of being at the end of the street bordered by a nature preserve and only a 3 block, 5 minute walk to the beach. The mornings are particularly beautiful having breakfast on the porch listening to the birds that visit the birdfeeder.

Dinner can go from a family gathering to a competitive card game and all the while you can have the family room TV keeping you up to date on your favorite football or sports game.

Ideal for a large crowd, Banyan Bend welcomes your entire family or several groups of friends and family to make our home yours during your vacation!

When you aren’t enjoying the amenities of the house or nearby beach, enjoy the relaxing backyard. Kick back and put your feet up on the patio or slip off to a peaceful nap in the hammock! The backyard is the perfect setting for a fun game of horse-shoes or tossing a football. Be sure to enjoy all the island has to offer. In addition to the beach, visitors enjoy walking and jogging while taking in the beautiful scenery or a fun game of tennis in town. Downtown Boca Grande has plenty to offer. Walk or bike downtown to enjoy the shops or a sweet treat of ice-cream. Be sure to catch BOTH the beautiful sunrise and sunset. Truly all you need can be found on this island.

Banyan Bend beach house is our family’s perfect retreat. Our large family of 2 teenagers and 2 adult children with families of their own (including 2 young grand children) all come together to enjoy a relaxing vacation at the beach.

About Sarah Rapp

Banyan Bend beach house is owned by a family who enjoyed the island for 2 years and decided they loved it so much they wanted a house to be able to visit with their growing family to create lasting memories. Eventually they hope to retire to the island.

Sarah Rapp purchased this house in 2013

Why Sarah Rapp chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

They enjoy the quaintness of downtown Boca Grande and wanted an island with beautiful beaches as well as one they could walk, bike, and jog around. An island in which they could vacation and just relax with sunrises and sunsets but also one that offered family members who preferred more than the beach -the ease of walking, biking, fishing, jogging, or playing tennis close to home.

What makes this house unique

With our family being in California, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Florida we really value creating family memories and having vacation time together. We bought this house because it offers lots of space for the whole family and we love the layout for vacation together. Vacationing with children can sometimes be a challenge and the house offers togetherness yet a way to have time to yourself or quiet time with your child. We truly hope you enjoy your stay on the island and in our home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

this 6 bedroom 6 bath house is perfect for a large group. we had two families with children plus grandparents. The lower level was perfect for the children who had their own living room and refrigerator. the main level is so extensive that it gives great privacy to members of a large group. Two huge screen porches complete the picture. the backyard is large enough for play and the beach is 4 minute walk. the house is well equipped, with a luxurious kitchen. all in all, a great spot

A Wonderful Family Home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my family and we enjoyed a peaceful, tranquil Thanksgiving at this large, well appointed home. With 6 bedrooms and 12 people, everyone had a bed, a bathroom and room to roam. The kitchen is fantastic, all commercial appliances and built with a cook in mind. I plan to rent again as this is the best value for a large family anywhere in Boca Grande. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!

Spacious house in paradise! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This home was so lovely. We could really sense that a lot of love went into planning it for a large family. The spacious gourmet kitchen was so great! I miss it! We had our kids with us, all in their twenties, one with his fiancee, and one with her husband, and there was SO much space that we all got along so well. And being able to get around the island in golf carts, on bikes, on foot, and in the car, made it so easy. What a great week!

Fabulous home and very spacious!! Well maintained

  • 5 of 5

This house was way beyond our expectations! Great for our 50th wedding anniversary and versatile for the whole family from the four year old on UP!!

We could not have asked for more and there are plenty of activities at house not advertised such as Ping-Pong and small billiard table the adults and kids enjoyed.

Am suggesting this to all our friends!!
