    Boca Grande, Florida

    Cayo Costa State Park protects the Charlotte Harbor Estuary and provides visitors with a majestic piece of untouched Florida.

    An unspoiled Gulf Coast island evokes images of wind-shaped trees, dunes, beaches and freedom to explore. This especially rings true for Cayo Costa Island.

    Accessible only by boat or kayak, this former fishing ground of the Calusa Indians features nine miles of undeveloped shoreline for swimming, snorkeling, shelling, fishing, birdwatching and exploration along with several walking and bicycling trails through the island’s interior. Shorebirds are numerous, and one might spot manatees, porpoises and sea turtles offshore.

    This is coastal Florida at its best! Campsites and cabins are available for overnight stays, and a ferry service runs to the island from several mainland locations. Visitors are reminded that camping is allowed only in designated sites in the campground on Cayo Costa.

We have chickens, ducks, two ponds, lots of open space, a small fruit tree nursery, and about a dozen or so fruit trees in the ground! We love having people over to visit and enjoy sharing our passion for growing fruit trees and raising chickens and ducks!

    Bring your tent and camp out back in an open grassy area near the back pond, or set up your RV near the front and enjoy a spacious getaway under the oaks and pines. Explore the farm, see the animals, go for a walk around the property, or just sit outside and relax.

    We are centrally located in the rural area of the Bayshore Community with only a 5-minute drive to I-75, a 20-minute drive to Downtown Fort Myers, and a 20-minute drive to Babcock Ranch.

    Being only 5 minutes away from I-75 makes it quick and easy to either drive down south to Bonita Springs to enjoy our local beaches or north to Punta Gorda to explore!

    Downtown Fort Myers has many local restaurants and shops if you want to go out and about. They typically have events on the weekends like Art Walk and Music Walk!

    We are a 20-minute drive from Babcock Ranch which is the first solar-powered town in America. It is a community open to the public that has several walking/biking trails, a beautiful lake for kayaking/fishing, and a small dog park. They also have a restaurant (Lakehouse Kitchen & Bar) that looks out over the water and live entertainment on certain days of the week!

    Our street is right across from a local farm-to-table restaurant called "Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm" where you can enjoy a farm-to-table meal on their 100-acre farm while enjoying live entertainment (reservations are required). We also have two parks, Nalle Grade Park and Pop Ash Creek Preserve, that are about a 1 to 2-minute drive for those who enjoy nature walks, fishing, or birding.

    There are many other parks, restaurants, and local businesses nearby for you to enjoy if you want to get out and explore the local area! We are always happy to make recommendations of places to visit, or happy to have you relax on our little slice of paradise and just hang out the entire time!

    My husband and I both work from home so one of us will always be on the property to help with anything you might need. We are so excited about your visit and can't wait to see ya out on NOFO GROVES for your Getaway
