this 6 bedroom 6 bath house is perfect for a large group. we had two families with children plus grandparents. The lower level was perfect for the children who had their own living room and refrigerator. the main level is so extensive that it gives great privacy to members of a large group. Two huge screen porches complete the picture. the backyard is large enough for play and the beach is 4 minute walk. the house is well equipped, with a luxurious kitchen. all in all, a great spot

Loved staying at Banyan Bend! Its big enough where you can have all of your family members/friends come and stay. Even though its a big house, its set up in a way that everyone still seems to congregate in the family areas. The open style kitchen/bar/living-room makes for great dinner preparation with enough room for everyone to help... and my favorite, the Viking stove!!! The porch is nice to sit and relax and downstairs is a great place for the young ones to hang out when everyone else has gone to bed. Lets not forget how close it is to the beach and the gorgeous sunsets! I will definitely be going back!!

The service was excellent, very swift and painfree check-in.We found the house very comfortable and beautifully furnished and really spacious - brilliant for families, we never felt on top of each other as there are living areas both upstairs and downstairs.Location excellent, a short hop into the center of the charming town and within a very short walking distance to the beach and if too tired to walk just take the 'golf-buggy'! Lovely little eating places in town and on the beach if not wanting to cook. We had a brilliant holiday, can't fault it really - we will be back!

One of the smartest laid out floor plans for a large vacationing family/families! Banyan Bend is a spacious, beautifully appointed home in which the owners have paid close attention to detail. Plenty of space to spread out and relax, a beautifully landscaped yard for the kids to play in or to sit in the shade and read a novel. Two seemingly unending screened in porches to dine at sunset or sip coffee before a trip to the beach. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom for extra privacy which lends itself nicely when traveling with more than 1 family. Kids/teens/in-laws can enjoy the downstairs bedrooms and mini kitchen and family room while the upstairs kitchen and dining area are large enough to host a crowd. The kitchen will thrill any chef!
The beach is just a short walk to the end of the block and the center of town is a short drive or bike ride. Boca Grande's laid back quiet style is sure to wash away any cares!
Fond memories were made at Banyan Bend and we can't wait to return!

This rental was fabulous ! So much room for a large family young and old. It has a large family room, open living and more comfortable space downstairs with plenty of amenities. Multiple bathrooms (6) six, wow! When we stayed there everyone had their own. Private yard, parking wasn't a problem because of it's location and close to the beach and everthing else.
