About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom

The Boca Grande Beach House, South is 1/2 of a one-story duplex. The South unit has two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom, and a combination living room/dining room. The kitchen was completely remodeled in 2013 and the bathroom was 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 Lighthouse. It is a short walk to the charming village of Boca Grande and the Boca Grande Community Center with a workout room and play ground. Tennis courts are at the end of our street. The seven mile jog/bike path runs directly in front of the property. In winter months, there is a farmer's market at the end of Wheeler Road.

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: Punta Gorda (PGD) 45 min., 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 Golden Beach

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.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem - perfect location with updated kitchen and bath! The beach access is steps away and it is an easy walk to town - renting a golf cart was also a fun way to see even more of the island. Beds were comfortable and the place was spotless! First time to Gasparilla Island and I hope to return!

We were looking for a place to rest our heads after a few long days of wedding planning! It was perfect for myself, my future daughter-in-law and her mom to stay! This home was very clean and well maintained and close to the beach! I am going to recommend it to our guest for the wedding weekend coming up in May! Thanks so much Molly!

Boca Grande Beach House was perfect for us. We loved being so close to the beach and just a short walk to fun shops and restaurants in town. Gasparilla island is a lovely, upscale place. The house is clean and comfortable with everything we needed provided. We plan to return and rent both units. It would be a great way to vacation with friends and be close but still have our own privacy.

Myself and a few friends stayed at Boca Grande Beach House for a wedding, and it was perfect for what we needed (4 twin beds as we all went stag). Location was excellent -- the beach was directly across the street, and the house was clean and full of everything we needed. We all agreed it would be a great spot to come back to.
