About the property

Set yourself apart from other beach rentals in one of the only single-family rental homes, with pool, available on Boca Grande. Entirely renovated a few years ago with new appliances, flat-panel TVs, furniture, fixtures, baths, flooring, and in-ground pool, it sleeps 6 comfortably, and up to 8 including sofa bed. The property is adjacent to a tropical nature preserve, which offers privacy for your vacation, not found in condos, townhomes or even most other single-family house rentals (you’re on Boca Grande to escape everyday life – don’t stay in a place where you’ll be disturbed by others). Enjoy meals on the screened-in lanai overlooking the new secluded in-ground pool which starts at zero depth, ideal for small children, reaching 5 feet for adults. One minute walk to the best Gulf beaches, great for swimming or shelling. Walk, jog or bike on the nearby paved path to anywhere on the island, including the quaint town with great restaurants and shopping. See link to video of the home.

Unrestricted beach access: As our guest you have legal access to a private footpath leading to the beach

About Bret and Lisa Cottick

We have enjoyed coming to Boca Grande for a long time and have never really found anywhere quite like it. Our family loves coming to enjoy the island pursuits that Boca Grande so graciously offers: swimming, walking the beach, shelling, fishing, boating, exploring the island and the amazing sunsets right outside the door.

Bret and Lisa Cottick purchased this house in 2017

Why Bret and Lisa Cottick chose Boca Grande

Boca Grande is a very special place. The stresses of the Mainland lift as soon as you drive over the bridge. The island welcomes you with simple fun and activities from days gone by. The home is uniquely located just steps from the beach but also near the quaint town of Boca Grande with its shopping and great restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Location, location,'s hard to be closer to the beach. A very private location that backs up to the Gasparilla Island State Park Nature Preserve makes your island stay secluded and quiet. The private in-ground pool is a big hit with the adults and kids alike. Don't forget to grab a beach chair and your favorite beverage.......cross the street and watch the show provided by Mother Nature every night when the sun plunges into the Gulf of Mexico. Amazing!

Even better this time

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay here, and it was even better than the first. There are new palm trees and other plantings that replace those lost with Hurricane Irma, and an attractive new fence around the property. The pool was even heated, allowing us to relax on the rafts when it was a little cool one afternoon. Next, we pulled the wagon with the beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler the block to the beach for some fun in the sun. The following day the Gulf was a little rough, but that was great as the waves brought up more large shells to collect. This is the best place I can imagine for keeping happily busy when trying to do nothing at all.

Clean, Private & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

There were little issue with Entry Door Locks, but owners were aware.

I have been visiting the island since the 70’s. I love this island & being able to stay at this property was all anyone could dream of. It is located half way between town & end of island. Short 2 minute walk across the street & your on the white sandy beaches.

The house is well maintained, clean & located at end of street. This makes for quiet & relaxing time in a gorgeous private pool. Once the shade of the trees cover the pool you can escape to the 2nd floor sun deck & take afternoon nap. I will definitely recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a non stress vacation.

Excellent Rental Property In Boca Grande

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. It exceeded our expectations. It had everything we needed for a wonderfully comfortable stay. We particularly appreciated the new fence around the property. However, because of trees and shrubbery being removed in the back, the pool and view from the patio was less private. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider renting again next year.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in this beautiful beach home. Everything you need to have an exceptional stay is here. The home is immaculate! The beds are extremely comfortable, there are plenty of new towels and the bathrooms and kitchen are stocked with everything you might need while you are away from home. The beautiful and mostly deserted beach is just a quick walk across the street. We enjoyed the pool most days and one of our favorite places was the upper level deck where we watched the stars (a couple of shooting) at night. I highly recommend this home if you ever find yourself in beautiful Boca Grande!

Serenity. That’s the key word here. From walking the empty beach for an hour early in the morning with only the blue herons in sight, to luxuriously floating in the pool beneath the shade of the palm trees, to lunching on oysters and ale at the dockside in town, our stay here was a study in peace, quiet, and finding the perfect sea shell. The home is immaculate, excessively outfitted, and a true joy to experience. We shall return!

Located on the south end of Gasparilla Island which is secluded and offers the best beaches on the island (as our guest you have legal access to a private footpath leading to the beach). Only 10-15 walk to town or travel like the locals on golf carts which is only a 5 minute ride (carts and bikes can be rented in town.). Gasparilla island offers great restaurants for fine dining or a casual lunch. Visitors say the island has a charm of traditional Florida that can't be found anywhere else. Great place for snow birds to relax or for couples with young children who want to spend quality time at the beach, pool or riding bikes.
