The pet friendly Boca Grande Beach House is perfect for couples, families or for a great group getaway. The house offers plenty of parking for your boat, multiple cars or RV. Boca Grande (the "e" is silent) is a small residential community on Gasparilla Island, in southwest Florida. Gasparilla Island and the actual village of Boca Grande is home to many seasonal and year-round residents. Boca Grande is known for its charming authentic downtown, sugar sand beaches, blue water and world class fishing. Its name - Spanish for "Big Mouth" - comes from the mouth of the waterway, called Boca Grande Pass, at the southern tip of the island. The pass was used as a busy shipping point for many years as the waters in the pass are naturally deep. There are no gas stations in the village of Boca Grande, so many local residents use a golf cart as their main mode of transportation. On any given day in Boca Grande, you will see golf carts, as well as some automobiles, making their way throughout downtown. Boca Grande provided the backdrop for Denzel Washington's movie, Out of Time, where the quiet village was renamed "Banyan Key" in reference to the banyan trees that populate the island. Scenes for the 2006 film based on Carl Hiaasen's book Hoot were also filmed on the island, which was again renamed for the filming. This time it became "Coconut Cove". Boca Grande is very popular with affluent seasonal residents, many of whom keep a second home on the island. Gasparilla Island's first known inhabitants were the Calusa Indians. They were living on nearby Useppa Island by 5,000 B.C. and on Gasparilla Island by 800 or 900 A.D. Charlotte Harbor was the center of the Calusa Empire, which numbered thousands of people and hundreds of fishing villages. The Calusa were a hunting and fishing people who perfected the art of maritime living in harmony with the environment. They were a politically powerful people, dominating Southwest Florida during their "golden age." Since the Calusa had no written language, the only record we have of their lifestyle and ceremonies comes from the oral history of the (much later) Seminoles, from written accounts of Spanish explorers, and from the archaeological record. The first contact the Calusa had with the white man came during Spanish explorations at the beginning of the 16th century. By the mid 18th century the Calusa had all but disappeared, the victims of European diseases, slavery and warfare. Just like the Indians, the earliest settlers came to Gasparilla Island to fish. By the late 1870s several fish ranches were operating in the Charlotte Harbor area. One of them would later be at the north end of Gasparilla Island in the small village called Gasparilla. The fishermen, many of them Spanish or Cuban, caught huge catches of mullet and other fish and salted them down for shipment to Havana and other markets. In the 1940s the Gasparilla Fishery was moved to Placida across the bay, where it still stands today, and the fishing village died out. Today, many of Boca Grande's early fishing families are still represented in third, fourth and even fifth generation descendants who pursue many different vocations, including fishing. In 1885, phosphate rock was discovered on the banks of the Peace River just above Punta Gorda, east of Gasparilla Island across Charlotte Harbor. It was this discovery that would turn the south end of Gasparilla Island into a major deep water port (Boca Grande Pass is one of the deepest natural inlets in Florida) and become responsible for the development of the town of Boca Grande. Wealthy American and British sportsmen began discovering the Charlotte Harbor area for its fantastic fishing (notably for the world class game fish tarpon) and hunting. It was these two discoveries - phosphate rock and fishing - that would put Boca Grande "on the map." The Charlotte Harbor and Northern Railway not only brought phosphate and supplies to Gasparilla Island; it also brought wealthy people from the north. By 1910 Boca Grande Pass was already famous for its unequaled tarpon fishing among fishermen, who stayed on nearby Useppa Island. The Agrico Company, having begun to see the potential of the idea of developing Gasparilla Island beyond the port, began to develop the village of Boca Grande. The railroad station in what would become downtown was built; roads, sidewalks, streetlights, shops, a post office, and water and telephone service were not far behind. The town was landscaped, including the now famous section of Second Street called Banyan Street. The railroad company built several cottages downtown and a few wealthy families from "up north" purchased land and built winter residences. The train stopped at Gasparilla, the fishing village at the north end of the island, at the railroad depot in downtown Boca Grande, and at the south end phosphate terminal. In 1911 the first hotel, the Gasparilla Inn, opened, and the island became a major vacation destination for the elite from Tampa, Fort Myers and New England. Though shipping has declined substantially since the last quarter of the 20th century, tourism remains important to the island's economy. The railroad continued to bring winter visitors from all along the eastern seaboard and upper midwest until the Boca Grande Causeway opened in 1958. The Swing Bridge spans two 80-foot wide channels on the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway at Placida Harbor. It was built from 1952-1958 to replace a ferry service. When the bridge became operational, it was faster to fly to Tampa and drive to Boca Grande than it was to take the train directly from the northeast and midwest. Rail passenger service to Boca Grande ended on April 12, 1959. A typical 80-day Florida season in Boca Grande Pass produces an average 5,000 tarpon landed. As a result, it is one of the world's best tarpon fishing holes and yields more tarpon than any other location in the world. Tarpon congregate and spawn out of passes along most of the entire rim of the Gulf of Mexico. The massive attraction to Boca Grande Pass is unknown and subject to many theories. In the spring, it appears that many of the fish's habits all along the coast are in orientation to Boca Grande Pass. With depths reaching near 80 feet, it is the deepest natural pass in Florida. It is the only major outlet of Charlotte Harbor that is fed by two major rivers, the Peace River and the Myakka River. As the bottleneck of the harbor, the currents are strong and serve as an underwater highway for many species of fish and bait. Boca Grande is known as the world famous "Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World". Gasparilla Island is one of the best places to shell in Florida. In the winter months storms wash up many treasures onto the beaches. Beach combers are likely to find many species including Sharks Eye Snails, Lightning Whelks, Florida Horse conchs, Fighting Conchs, Alphabet Cones, Florida Cones, Lettered Olives, True and Banded Tulips, various scallops and other bivalves, along with Sand Dollars, Star Fish and once on a while a Sea Horse. The lucky few will bring home the much prized Junonia, Scotch Bonnet or Lions Paw. After hurricanes many large (24") Horse Conchs and Lightning Whelks can be found washed up on beach or out on the sand bars. The best time to go out is during the low tides, when more of the beach is exposed. The bay offers a great chance to view live specimens. Take a walk on the sandbars or mudflats and you will find assorted sizes of Lightning Whelks and Horse Conches crawling around; but remember it is illegal to take live specimens.

As part of the barrier island chain that includes Sanibel and Captiva Island, Little Gasparilla Island offers privacy and tranquility and a rare sense of peace not found at many Florida vacation spots. Many days you can walk the beach for hours without seeing another soul. As a bridge-less barrier island, accessible only by water taxi, Little Gasparilla has fewer tourists, no high rises and no crowds on the beach. You vacation with dolphins and egrets, gopher tortoises and sea turtles. Island neighbors are friendly and always willing to offer a helping hand. The island offers 7 miles of beautiful pristine beach unspoiled by either seawalls or high-rises. During the summer, the beach is a nesting spot for endangered sea turtles which lay their eggs in the warm sand near the dunes. The shells on the island are among the most plentiful on the West Coast and the beaches are dotted with prehistoric shark's teeth free for the collecting. The best time to go shelling is just before and at low tide and after a storm. Be sure to check the high tide lines where the surf often tosses the largest shells. The sandbars are home to sand dollars, whelks, starfish and conchs. There is water taxi service that operates daily between 8:30 AM and 5 PM by appointment. You just phone them, tell them your dock number and they will pick you up at a local marina (where you also park) and drop you at your dock. There are several golf courses within 10 minutes of the marina, and an excellent fish market just across Lemon Bay. There are charming gift and souvenir shops in the villages of Placida and Boca Grande. Boat rentals are available in Englewood, Placida and Boca Grande and there are also many fishing charters in Placida and Boca Grande. You must bring all your groceries over with you on the water taxi. There is an excellent fish market in nearby Placida and several mainland restaurants are also reachable by boat. There are no hotels, motels or restaurants on Little Gasparilla Island. Bird watchers will spot egret and osprey, rare white pelicans, blue herons, and even the occasional bald eagle. The waters are rich with manatees and dolphins and the waves are gentle and calming and perfect for floating on a raft. The bottom is mostly white sand, so there is little to see while snorkeling...though you can often find sand dollars off the sand bar. Fishing from either the dock or the beach can provide daily entertainment -- and a hearty meal depending on your luck…and at the end of a long day, a breathtaking sunset over the Gulf of Mexico gently eases you into the evening. Please note that most all houses on Little Gasparilla island are on stilts. Unfortunately, we are not handicapped accessible. Small children will require supervision on the stairs. Please note there is no smoking in the island house. Come ready to relax and to enjoy gulf waters, warm breezes, sugar white sand paths. No cars, only golf carts, means a slow and quiet environment to de-stress and get away from it all. Ready. Set. Slow. Book today. Guest AccessGuests have access to full house Interaction with GuestsGuests have complete privacy, peace and quiet The NeighborhoodLittle Gasparilla Island is a tropical barrier island located just off the Southwest Coast of Florida. Situated halfway between Sarasota and Ft. Myers, it benefits from cool tropical breezes in the summer and warm sunshine in the winter. It is just north of Gasparilla Island, separated by Gasparilla Pass. It lies west of the town of Placida, separated by Placida Harbor. It is connected with Don Pedro Island to the north by a thin strip of beach. It borders the Gulf of Mexico to the west. The most unique attribute of Little Gasparilla is its lack of a bridge. All access is by private boat or water taxi. There are no roads and no cars, and traffic and tourists are just a mainland memory. The island offers 7 miles of beautiful pristine beach unspoiled by either seawalls or high-rises. During the summer, the beach is a nesting spot for endangered sea turtles which lay their eggs in the warm sand near the dunes.

                      COCONUT HIDEAWAY is one of the most charming and unique homes on the island. This is our private home -- not a 'rental unit' -- and we have decorated it with antiques, oriental carpets, original artwork and many collections from our travels abroad. Our Caribbean-inspired home is built in the 'Old Florida' style and boasts soaring high ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, warm cedar siding, Tiffany-style lamps, a dramatic open staircase and unobstructed views of the beach from every room. We offer two screened porches, front and back, and open decks surround the house for sunning. Comfortable hammocks offer the perfect spot for reading. Al fresco dining is available on the front porch for balmy tropical evenings, or our indoor dining table seats 7-8. We have a breezy outdoor seating area on the front porch overlooking the Gulf, and a cozy conversation area, decorated with antique wicker, on the back porch. Unlike many homes which are merely 'gulf view' or which require a long walk across the island on hot sand, our home is directly on the beach. We even have a tropical tiki hut nestled in the dunes, perfect for watching the sunset with a glass of wine...and a quiet tropical garden under the sea grapes, with orchids, frangipani, bamboo and ginger. We have spent over 25 years making Coconut Hideaway a very special and unique beach cottage to share with friends and family. Each of the two main bedrooms offers both a king-size bed and an additional small daybed perfect for small children. The cozy sleeping porch has a single daybed with an additional trundle and has its own private entrance. (This is quite a small bedroom, but teenagers love the privacy!) We feature 100% cotton linens which are included with your rental as are all kitchen utensils, beach towels, chairs, beach umbrella and a use of a free dock slip for your boat. The kitchen features granite counter tops, bread maker, blender, microwave, toaster oven, coffee grinder and and crock pot. Two refrigerators offer plenty of space for extra ice, sodas and snacks. We also offer access to our fully stocked pantry, so you don't have to bring as many groceries. From canned goods and spices to rice and drink mixes, we keep our pantry stocked with a variety of food items just in case you don't feel like heading to the mainland for a shopping trip. As part of the barrier island chain that includes Sanibel and Captiva Island, Little Gasparilla Island offers the peace and serenity that those overcrowded islands cannot. As a bridge-less barrier island, accessible only by water taxi, Little Gasparilla has fewer tourists, no high rises and no crowds on the beach. You vacation with dolphins and egrets, gopher tortoises and sea turtles. Unlike the congested 'condo/townhome' complexes to the south, the beach in front of Coconut Hideaway is rarely crowded. The fishing is superb from the beach or the dock, and children and adults alike will also enjoy shelling, snorkeling, riding skim boards or simply floating on a raft. Noisy nightlife is non-existent, though you may encounter ghost crabs or giant sea turtles on the beach. There is daily water taxi service to and from the island, so mainland visits are relatively convenient. There are several golf courses within 10 minutes of the marina, and an excellent fish market (Miss Cindy's) just across Placida Bay. There are charming gift and souvenir shops in the villages of Placida and Boca Grande. Please note that most all houses on Little Gasparilla island are on stilts. Unfortunately, we are not handicap-accessible. We provide baby gates for stairs inside the home but small children will require supervision on the stairs. Please note there is no smoking in the beach house. Our personal website has many additional photos and more information about the house and the island. Please note that for your protection and ours, we do not always update the availability calendar but you may e-mail us to double-check availability. Pet Fee: $100. A non-refundable pet fee will be charged to cover additional cleaning costs. We may elect to waive this depending on size and breed of dog. We also assess a flat $500 holiday surcharge for Christmas, New Years, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Please note that wi-fi is provided via a mobile hot-spot, but data is very expensive and data is limited. If you need to work, and require lots of downloading or streaming videos, you will most likely exceed the data allotment of 2G per week and overages will be deducted from your security deposit. Little Gasparilla Island is one of the undiscovered charms of SW Florida. Nestled just off the coast of Englewood, Little Gasparilla island is situated just north of Boca Grande and south of Manasota Key. Unlike those islands, however, it has no bridge. Access is only via private boat or the island water taxi. This inaccessability means that the island is seldom crowded, there is no traffic and there are few tourists. You can meander the sandy pathways up and down the island, fish off the dock or the beach, watch osprey soar over the beach or observe gopher tortoises as they wander the island eating cactus blooms and hibiscus flowers. It is a very laid-back and relaxing holiday away from the stresses of traffic, tourists and the theme-park mayhem you encounter elsewhere in Florida! Our beaches are pristine, with no seawalls. There are no riptides or drop-offs and our beach is safe for even tiny swimmers. There are no lifeguards, however, so your children will need supervision on the beach.

                      Hibiscus House is a sparkling clean cottage in one of the most superb locations in Florida. It features fresh, beachy decor, dramatic Gulf views, bright, sunshine-filled rooms, a nearly deserted beach and it includes everything to make your beach vacation memorable.... satellite TV, wi-fi access, use of a dock slip, beach chairs, comfortable beds, a relaxing hammock plus one of the best equipped kitchens on the beach. Please note that this house is on LITTLE GASPARILLA which is not accessible by bridge...the only access is by private boat or water taxi. You leave your car at the marina on the mainland, and the water taxi drops you right at our dock where our concierge will meet you with his golf cart and transport your luggage and your groceries to the house. While the island is relatively remote, access is easy via regular water taxi service and the beach is pristine and uncrowded. The home offers snorkeling gear, boogie boards, a beach umbrella, beach towels, toys and games. The master bedroom features a king size bed, the second bedroom offers a queen size bed and there is a sleeping loft with two twins and a double bed. There is also a downstairs outdoor shower and a spacious screened porch overlooking the Gulf. NOTE: We also offer concierge service to meet you at the dock and help transport your luggage and groceries to the house. Please note that FlipKey adds their own booking fee. Unlike other homes set back on the island, Hibiscus House is situated right on the beach, for the best views and no long walks to the beach across hot sand. No partial "peek-a-boo" view from this home....you can eat dinner overlooking the Gulf and the sound of the waves lulls you to sleep at night. Little Gasparilla Island is very pet friendly and your canine companion is welcome! Our minimum rental period is one week; sorry, but we do not rent for weekends. Information on boat rentals and water taxi service is provided with your rental package. Be sure to check out our YouTube video: Hibiscus House on LIttle Gasparilla Island! Pet Fee: $100 per pet. Your pets are welcome at Hibiscus House, but due to some damage from recent "furry visitors" we now must charge a non-refundable pet fee of $100 per pet. We may elect to waive this depending on size and breed of pet. We also assess a flat $500 holiday surcharge for Christmas, New Years, Easter, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Please note that wi-fi is provided via a mobile hot-spot, but data is very expensive and data is limited. If you need to work, and require lots of downloading or streaming videos, you will most likely exceed the data allotment of 2G per week and overages will be deducted from your security deposit. Little Gasparilla Island is a nearly-deserted tropical island with no bridge, no roads and no commercial establishments. If peace and privacy are the hallmarks of a special beach vacation, you have found the right spot! Warm, shallow waters and balmy tropical breezes caress the island....sand pathways meander up and down the island for exploring by golf cart. (Golf cart rentals are available on the island) You park your car at the mainland marina and take a delightful 15-minute water taxi ride right to our dock. It is best to do all your grocery shopping prior to catching the water taxi....then you don't have to leave the island at all! You can even bring your pets on the water taxi with you! While on the island, in addition to swimming you can snorkel, fish from the dock or the beach, bird watch, explore, collect shells, or simply read a good book in the hammock.

As part of the barrier island chain that includes Sanibel and Captiva Island, Little Gasparilla Island offers privacy and tranquility and a rare sense of peace not found at many Florida vacation spots. Many days you can walk the beach for hours without seeing another soul. As a bridge-less barrier island, accessible only by water taxi, Little Gasparilla has fewer tourists, no high rises and no crowds on the beach. During the summer, the beach is a nesting spot for endangered sea turtles which lay their eggs in the warm sand near the dunes. The shells on the island are among the most plentiful on the West Coast and the beaches are dotted with prehistoric shark's teeth free for the collecting. The sandbars are home to sand dollars, whelks, starfish and conchs. There is daily water taxi service to and from the island, so mainland visits are relatively convenient.You just phone them, tell them your dock number and they will pick you up at a local marina (where you also park) and drop you at your dock.You must bring all your groceries over with you on the water taxi. There are no stores or restaurants on the Island. There is an excellent fish market in nearby Placida and several mainland restaurants are also reachable by boat. There are several golf courses within 10 minutes of the marina. There are charming gift and souvenir shops in the villages of Placida and Boca Grande. Boat rentals are available in Englewood, Placida and Boca Grande and fishing charters in Placida and Boca Grande.Fishing from either the dock or the beach can provide daily entertainment -- and a hearty meal depending on your luck…and at the end of a long day, a breathtaking sunset over the Gulf of Mexico gently eases you into the evening. Please note that most all houses on Little Gasparilla island are on stilts. Unfortunately, we are not handicap-accessible. Small children will require supervision on the stairs. Please note there is no smoking in the island house. Come Ready to Relax. Book today.

One of our guest had this to say about their stay with us; "We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Hacienda Del Mar. We found the unit and area as advertised. The area was very quiet and peaceful which we really liked. The unit is very well appointed and a great place to vacation. One minor item we needed more face cloths so we purchased a few inexpensive ones that we will be leaving here. Overall you get an "A plus"! Sleeps 4 comfortably. Rental Rates do not include state or local taxes. The property is located on the beautiful west coast of Florida minutes away from the very special and historic town of Boca Grand on Gasparilla Island. Venice is about 40 minutes north, Sarasota about 60 minutes away. Airports include Sarasota, Ft Myers (1.1/2 hrs) or Tampa (1.3/4 hrs). If you like access to great white sand beaches, golf, tennis, boating and fishing this place is for you! The condo is located directly on the Inter-coastal Waterway and from the spacious lanai you can enjoy the summer kitchen and watch boats go by. The fishing here is world renowned and the many islands and isolated beaches are yours to explore. There is plenty of shopping and restaurants close by. In short, you'll be in a very private and exclusive enclave with access to all the area has to offer. Book it today and enjoy!
