Boca Ciega Resort

Our home away retreat! Vacation rentals in Florida from owners!

Get 15% discount on Tikanis restaurant across the bridge.


All owners and all renting guests now have 15% discount on Tikanis restaurant across the bridge.

I personally think we are very fortunate to have such a nice place with really tasty food and great reviews within walking distance. Renting guests have to show a rental contract or equivalent to get the deal.
Showing some kind of rental agreement on the phone also works.

The discount is only valid at the restaurant and not for online and home delivery orders.

(My personal favorites are garlic duds and bourbon wings :))

Check out their menu here!

Private key lock box over the mail boxes


The Board has decided to allow owners to put a single safe key lock over the mail boxes.
If you would like to have one, please purchase one at Home Depot for about $31.00 in the store or order online for $20.00.
Click this link to buy one online or just to check which lock to buy.
We would like to keep all locks uniformed, so no other design or version is allowed.

The key safe box is to be mounted over your mail box.
If your mail box is in the lower row, your key safe will end up in the lower row of key safes.
If your mail box is in the upper row, your key safe will end up in the upper row of key safes.
Put your key safe in line above your mail box.

This is something you do not have to do, but if you think it is a good idea, then feel free to do it and mount one!

Tom Gostick 111@bocaciegaresort.com or our maintenance person Willie Hunter will be pleased to mount them for you, if you decide to buy one. However, if you want one of them to mount it for you, you will have to provide them with following:
*Your condo key.
*A lock combination (4 digit code).
*4 Screws, 1 inch long.

Important info regarding taxes and HomeAway / VRBO


If you are renting your property through HomeAway, VRBO or any of their parenting companies, this might be good to know.
HomeAway, VRBO are from Dec 1st collecting and paying all taxes for you! (Totally 13%)

This may cause that you are low on your rates, if you haven’t touched them since they implemented the tax collecting process.

For more information, please contact HomeAway or VRBO or pinellas tax colloector or Florida department of revenue.

Important info regarding taxes and Homeaway / VRBO / AIRBNB


If you renting your property through AIRBNB, they are sending your Tourist Tax share, 7% to Florida Department of Revenue and 6% to Pinellas County Tax Collectors, so you are ok with AIRBNB and your tax liability is taking care of.

If you are renting your property through HomeAway, VRBO or any of their parent companies, you need to act.
They are collecting some taxes for you, but not all!
They dropped our extra 13% tax that we added to our rental on their listing page, and now they are collecting 6% Tourist Tax and sending it to Pinellas County Tax Collectors. They do not take care of the Florida Department of Revenue 7% share.
That will have to come out of your pocket, and you need to report it as well.
All this results in that you are probably 7% low on your rates, if you haven’t touched them since they implemented the tax collecting process.

For more information, please contact HomeAway or VRBO or pinellas tax colloector or Florida department of revenue.

We got the Certificate of excellence on Tripadvisor for the 5th year in a row!


Good news!!!

Each year, TripAdvisor (the biggest travel community in the world) gives Certificate of Excellence awards to hotels, B&Bs and Private holiday rentals that show continued excellence in hospitality! The award is given to rentals not only with the best reviews but with the best owners, too.

I’m happy to announce that we got the Certificate of excellence on TripAdvisor for the 5th year in a row!
This is something we wouldn't get unless we cared about the property, unit, service and happy guests, so congrats to all!

A good reputation is great!
Keep asking your guests to write reviews, it will give us more rentals and increase the value of our units.
If someone is to rent or buy a unit at BCR, they will for sure check out TripAdvisor first… 😉

Board meeting minutes

Redoing the board room into a multi-purpose and exercise room.


We are redoing the board room and trying to make better use of it.
The new design will accommodate a variety of uses.
The room would have a treadmill, training bike and possibly a cross trainer or a step-up machine for waterfront exercise.
It will host annual meetings for up to 36 people. It could be used for game nights and breakfast get-togethers that will seat 20 people.
There will also be an 8 foot table for serving.

Have a great Christmas!
