About the property

Beachfront, coastal elegance meets old Florida, southern charm at this beautifully restored town home in Boca Grande, Florida.The Gardner Beach House is a newly renovated three bedroom, three-bath condominium in a gated community, Dunes of Boca. The complex has private beach access, two pools, and a tennis court that will have you counting down the days until your vacation. The Gardner House can comfortably sleep up to 10 people, and reservations must be made for a minimum of seven days.

When you cross over the swing bridge and enter into Boca Grande, it will feel as if you have entered an exclusive resort. Boca Grande has plenty to see and so while there. You can head into town for a pastry at The Gasparilla Inn Café before heading down to the old lighthouse on south beach. Enjoy a delicious seafood dinner at Miller’s Dockside as you watch the boats pass by the Marina. After a day at the beach you can even grab an ice cream at the Dolphin Cove Café and discover your new favorite flavor. One thing you will quickly discover in Boca Grande is that no matter where you go you will be greeted with smiling faces and pleasantries as if you were longtime friends. Boca Grande is truly a hidden gem that provides the perfect escape into old Florida.

The Gardner Beach House is located on the north side of Boca Grande Island just a short walk out your back door to the tranquil beach. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off when you come back from the sandy shoreline, and a patio area to sit and enjoy dinner while watching the sunset. The downstairs boasts an open floor plan connecting the living room, dining room and the kitchen. Cabinets are fully stocked with dishes, cookware and appliances that you will need. There is a single bedroom with a queen bed and neighboring bathroom. Upstairs you will find the spacious master suite with a king sized bed and views overlooking the gulf, as well as a second bedroom with twin beds and an en suite bathroom. Additional amenities include a golf cart (available for rental), cable television, secure wireless internet, beach supplies and a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the everyday, and plan your next getaway to the Gardner Beach House.

Perfect girlfriends getsway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was not long enough but other than that, it was perfect! This property is wonderfully updated with an modern beach vibe. The beds are so comfortable that I’ve asked the owner for the mattress brand. Being steps from the beach made it so convenient and what a beach it is. The golf carts are a fun way to travel to the nearby shops and restaurants. We can’t wait to go back for a longer stay.

My family had a wonderful visit at the Gardner Beach House! It was, by far, the most beautiful, well-appointed home we have ever rented! Looking forward to next summer!

Words simply cannot do justice to the delightful experience we had at the Gardner Beach House. Before we even arrived, we were impressed by Megan's professionalism, accessibility, and helpfulness. The complex is well-maintained and peaceful, with very nice boardwalks leading through scenic, tree-lined dunes to the beautiful beach. The unit is smartly designed and decorated and feels like a home, rather than a rental. The owners have thought of every possible detail to make their guests feel welcomed and at home. The living area is spacious for cherished family times, and the screened porch swing and master-suite sun room are cozy nooks for quiet reading. When work calls, the view from the sun room desk inspires! We can't thank the Gardner family enough for sharing their little slice of heaven; it's a week our family will never forget!

Amazing home, beach and island!

  • 5 of 5

This home was one of the nicest places I have stayed on the beach. It is beautifully decorated, well equipped and the grounds and beach were beautiful. I loved the island and would definitely go back. My only request would be a few additional larger pots and pans but otherwise everything we needed plus some was there. Rent the golf carts as the island has a golf cart trail to everywhere. Megan was very helpful with all our needs.

Thanks for an amazing vacation and we look forward to returning!
