About Maria B.

I traveled for 12 years for work and have lived in several states. When I spent so much time away from home it was always frustrating to try to feel comfortable and have the amenities I enjoyed and missed at home. I worked to make this condo comfortable and inviting for a relaxing and peaceful getaway with family and friends. It was always important to me to have great service and amenities and as I continue to make updates to the property I always welcome your feedback and return visits.

Maria B. purchased this condo in 2016

Why Maria B. chose Boca Grande

I chose this location because it was such a beautiful and unknown island and was very much a gem of untouched gulf with quiet beautiful beaches and amazingly restaurants, history and the famous banyan street. I use to come here as a teenager and actually attended my high school prom on the island so it made sense to hold a piece of that history and have a place closer to my elderly parents.

What makes this condo unique

When I was working on this property I would awake in the morning to the most beautiful sunrises, dolphins and birds in the afternoon and even working on the patio watching the boats go by was the most calming feeling. I hope you enjoy the same experience during your stay, minus the work part:)! Sitting on the patio in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee or spending the evening with a glass of wine and great conversation watching the sunset after a day of exploring downtown shops and restaurants and calm beach waves makes for an extraordinary time.

Very Happy Boca New Year

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this north Boca properly for 6 days over the New Year's Holiday and had a wonderful time. Maria was awesome at ensuring all instructions were clear. The place is very well decorated and well appointed. we also rented a boat slip which was perfect for keeping a boat nearby. We used a golf cart most of the time while on island.

Perfect Beach Weekend Condo

We were in town for a wedding and the condo was perfect in every way. Great location, amazing view. Maria was a great host! She was reliable and easy to get in contact with. Definitely would want to stay here again for future visits.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to be sure to take the time to write a review of this beautiful property!! From beginning to end the whole experience was flawless. We were given great directions to the property, along with entry details. Upon entering the unit, we were pleased with the beautiful view! The condo was very nicely decorated and clean. There is plenty of room and lots of extras that make it really homey. The pool and tennis courts were great as well. Maria does an outstanding job of giving all sorts of helpful information for not only the condo but the whole island. She was extremely helpful as I had a couple questions before our stay. Unfortunately, my daughter forgot something in the condo and Maria offered to mail it to us. WE loved every minute of our stay. The condo quickly felt like a home away from home!!! Seriously consider this property! It's beautiful!

A true paradise

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? We loved everything! The view of the rising sun from the master bed, the beautiful view of the sea from the patio, the tasteful furnished condo equipped with everything you need like washer, dryer, a giant fridge, the relaxing lounge furniture on the patio, the quite and lux neighborhood, the little nearly private beach steps from the condo. A true paradise, we wish to come back to! Thank you very much for the the wonderful days we had!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property with lovely decor, high quality furnishings and linens, and magnificent water views. The kitchen has plenty of dishes and pots and pans for cooking and serving meals. The condo was spotless and the complex pool was sparkling clean. The owner was easy to work with.

The island itself is beautiful and was uncrowded especially for the time of year we were there. From the back deck of the condo, we enjoyed sunrises and the beautiful color of the sky at sunset. We also enjoyed taking walks in a very high-end residential neighborhood near the condo. There is a pier closeby, and we saw lots of people catching huge fish.

We only ate out once, and had a great meal, but I did not see inexpensive places for families. The bridge fee onto the island is $6 and is not part of the Florida pass system. There is a small market on the island, but it is limited and prices were higher than on the mainland, so it is worth a grocery stop before going to the condo.

One thing to note if you are going with young children is that the beach across from the condo is minimal. At high tide, there is nowhere to walk, and even at low tide, there is very little beach. The complex has a deck area, but there is a seawall, and I would worry about young children playing there. That said, the island has lots of free parking for easy access to beautiful beaches. The patio of the condo has beautiful water views (see the owner’s pictures) but it does not sit directly on the beach, and seeing the sun actually go down on the water requires a short drive to one of the beaches.

All in all, I highly recommend this property. It was a much quieter area of Florida than many we have visited and made a perfect get-away for us as walkers and readers.

Perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of four. All of the finishes are wonderful, the kitchen has everything you need, the linens were fantastic, as were the beds. The screened in porch was our favorite place to hang out in the condo, and laying in bed and being able to watch the sun come up was really nice. You can watch boats and dolphins go by in the waterway along with many native birds. Sadly, we were there during red tide, so going to the ocean wasn't possible. Fortunately, during a walk around the back of the building on the right there is a path to a small beach on the waterway. Since there are no crashing waves, we didn't feel the effects of the red tide there, AND we didn't have to worry about the kids in rough surf. The waterway that you can see from the one photo is amazing, we found conch shells with the aquatic life inside, many many starfish and crabs, and two different types of sea anemone. You can walk out in the water very, very far, the depth of the water ranges between ankle and hip depth. The comfortable chairs and towels provided made this a very easy excursion with the kids. Maria was a wonderful hoast, we enjoyed our stay very much!
