Your Location: You are actually located on an island - Little Hickory Island -usually called Bonita Beach. The beach is DIRECTLY across the street in front of you and the bay is directly across the street behind you. The easiest way to cross to the beach is the crosswalk 5 houses to the south. The Beach, Baby house is located in a neighborhood of single family homes, some of them quite spectacular, I must say. While residential, you are still just a short walk north to a deli, waterfront dining, and canoe, kayak and pontoon boat rentals. Walk the beach or sidewalk to the south and find 'Doc's' Restaurant for a sunset drink on the beach or rent jet skis, parasail,sail or paddle boat. Drive a mile south to county 'Barefoot Beach' nature preserve with boardwalk and education center.
Nearby: You are just minutes from many golf courses, mini-golf, Wonder Gardens Nature Zoo and Dog Track. A few minutes more and you're at dine in movie theatres, Fun and Sun Water Park (open on weekends in the winter)and Naples' 5th Ave for shopping and European style dining. And a little further is a must see - Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary- where walking the boardwalk gets you up close and personal with the Florida Everglades.
Transportation: You are located on a Trolley route so you can leave the car parked and take the trolley north to Ft. Myers Beach restaurants and activities or south to the local grocery store and K-Mart plaza. Or bike to the south end of Bonita Beach and visit Collier County's Barefoot Beach Park with concessions, boardwalk, and nature center. Too Fun!
My husband and I fell in love all over again in this adorable beach bungalow. The house is very clean, bright, and tropical. The beach access is directly across the street and there are great restaurants within a couple of miles. It's the perfect getaway for lovebirds. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy the beach lifestyle!
Amy and Dave were so nice and accommodating.
The apartment had all that you might need, was comfortable and clean.
The short walk to the beach was great! This made everything easy as there was no need for beach parking so we could go to the beach anytime we wanted. And the beach here was uncrowded and peaceful. i highly recommend this rental and hope to stay again.
Best vacation accommodations decision I've ever made! My boyfriend and I arrived late Monday night and were so pleasantly pleased! What a beautifully decorated quaint little beach house, and in a perfect spot. Just a 1 more min walk to beach, great walking/biking path either right along the road or on beach... Owners were so nice and welcoming... Thank you Amy,Dave and Ava (hope I spelled that right) was very hard to leave... We WILL be back!
Really enjoyed our stay with its proximity to the beach. It was easy to enjoy an early morning walk on the beach, return for breakfast, enjoy several hours on the beach, shower and enjoy the Flea Market, then return for sunset! The unit is well equipped, well decorated and the owners were very helpful.
We stayed at the beach house for 4 weeks in January and had a great time. The house is located in a quite neighbourhood away from any major resort. The beach is 5 min across the road, and no crowds any time. It is also close to Bonita Springs for grocery and supplies. The house is well equipped for our stay. Amy & Dave lives upstairs and are there for all our needs if necessary. We would recommend it to our friends if they go south to SW Florida.
What a wonderful vacation. The house was very comfortable, extremely clean and everything you needed for a perfect vacation was provided. The owner always checked on us to make sure our needs were meet. The beach was so nice, never crowded-you felt like it was all yours. We had several nice meals at local resturants but if you want to stay in and cook, the kitchen was fully stocked. Lots to do in the area-good shopping within a reasonable distance. My husband likes to fish and was pleasantly surprised with the array of fish you can catch from the surf. We are planning a return to this "perfect getaway" next year!
The unit was decorated VERY cute! Loved the bright and cheery colors. The owners have a gift for decorating. The location walking distance to beach was wonderful also.
Would recommend the owner provide an extra roll or 2 of tp (per bathroom) as do all other places we have stayed at, so there are no unwelcome surprises for renter regarding this issue. The roll in bathroom wasn't even a full one when we arrived. I think tp should be provided in the price of renting. That will help owner to ensure that no other alternative items would be flushed down the toilet in an emergency. Luckily, I called owner to inquire as to where the tp might be kept b4 we actually ran out, since I couldn't find any in normal areas of storage within the unit. When we were informed that none was provided, we had to make a special trip to the grocery store just for tp. Owner volunteered to get some for us in a day or two, but that wasn't helpful for the immediate need. Had I known there was no extra rolls provided I would have purchased during a previous run to the store.
I also noticed that there were a couple areas that had been missed by the cleaning lady hired by owner. When we moved the sofa to open the hide-a-bed, the floor under it needed a good sweeping, which I did with the provided broom and dust pan. Also I found that under the microwave was grungy which I also cleaned.
Over all, we had a very good experience and enjoyed being able to use the many extras provided. :) Hope these tips are accepted in the right spirit so that owner can make their property an even better experience for renters.
