The Historic Village of Boca Grande, on the island of Gasparilla, is located at the southern tip of the Cape Haze Peninsula on Florida’s Southwest Coast midway between Sarasota and Ft. Myers. Nature has blessed this lush barrier island with seven miles of powdery white beaches stretching the entire Gulf side and surrounded it with cerulean waters—the kind one usually finds only in the Caribbean. The adjacent estuaries fed by the Myakka and Peace Rivers converge to form one of the most pristine and productive coastal ecosystems in the world.
At the south end of the island lies Boca Grande (Big Mouth) Pass. With depths reaching near 80 feet, Boca Grande Pass is the deepest natural pass in Florida and where tarpon congregate. 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.
At the center of the island lies the nucleus of this little community, The Historic Village of Boca Grande. Here, “Main Street” still exists with no stop lights, no billboards, no high-rises and no fast-food chains. You will find, however, unique shops and art galleries, casual and fine dining establishments serving fresh seafood just caught by the local fishing captains and prepared by any of the island’s classically trained chefs.
Boca Grande has been the secret island that presidents, dignitaries and celebrities sneak away to, because the island denizens have a low-key attitude regarding celebrity and fame. Some of these celebrities are: President Bush, The Busch Family, The DuPont Family and The Rockefeller Family.
BCB Homes has been building and remodeling waterfront and estate homes for over three decades in Southwest Florida. Our experience managing the construction of these custom estate residences has made us one of the top builders in this neighborhood.
