About Doug Witsken

We are originally from Ohio, but have lived in Florida for the last 20 years because we love the warm Florida weather, the sunshine, the beautiful beaches, boating, and fantastic fishing. We have rented several privately owned vacation properties in various locations around Florida using online listings to find our vacation homes in years past. As a result of being a 'customer' of online vacation rentals on many occasions, we know that you want to stay at a nice place and rent from someone you can trust. We strive to keep our vacation home in top condition, and will do whatever we can to make your vacation very pleasurable and stress free!

Why Doug Witsken chose Florida South Gulf Coast

The location of our vacation home in beautiful Bonita Springs is perfectly situated for anyone that wants it all without being in the crowds of Naples or Fort Myers Beach. Both Naples & Fort Myers Beach are a very short drive in either direction, but Bonita Beach is situated directly between them both and just a short walk from our condo. For the beach lover, the boater, the kayaker, or the fisherman, our vacation home is your paradise!

What makes this condo unique

For those of you that like to bicycle, jog, or walk for exercise, our vacation home will give you plenty of options to help you maintain your fitness on the great beach front sidewalks that are directly west of our vacation home. You will also love the beautiful bike ride back to the Barefoot Beach State preserve - just a couple mile ride through a gorgeous neighborhood full of beautiful multi-million dollar waterfront homes to get to the untouched white sand beaches at the preserve. Barefoot Beach Preserve is our favorite beach to visit when we stay here and the bike ride to get there is beautiful. If you have a kayak or canoe, or wish to rent one just down the street (or by water via a short canal) from our condo, your on-water exploration options are limitless... The waters behind our condo are connected by inland water ways to anywhere you have the energy to get to in all of Southwest Florida.

Wonderful view of the inlet waterways. Lots of birds, boats and dolphins to watch. Two bedroom condo with all the necessary requirements to make your stay enjoyable. Pool heated and clean. Close to shopping, barefoot beach, restaurants. Any concerns were addressed quickly by the owner. If we go to Florida again, we would certainly look at staying here again.

Fantastic Views - Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the condo, you will see wonderful views from the many windows. The condo was impeccable with all high end appliances and furnishings. The condo is open and spacious with southwest Florida charm. The view of Little Hickory Bay from the 5th floor provides a panoramic picture of varieties of birds, dolphins, boats, mangroves and spectacular homes. We spent many hours on the lovely lanai watching boaters, fishermen, kayakers, and paddle boarders crossing the bay. The location provides easy access to multiple fabulous beaches on the Gulf, a variety of restaurants, and close shopping locations. The weather was a constant high 70's to low 80's while we were there and every day was sunny! Doug and Lisa should be complimented on their attention to detail and their welcoming nature during our stay. We are looking forward to returning for another relaxing time at this Bonita Springs treasure.

FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This being our first time renting a place for a month in Florida I contacted Doug and asked to see the apartment prior to committing to the rental. This place is top of the line and has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The people in the condo are extremely friendly they are very active and you will be invited to their gatherings. Every morning I would have breakfast on the Lanai as the sun was coming up and have a second cup of coffee watching the activity on the bay. I missed that part so much I bought my own condo on the water just a few miles south at Wiggins pass. This is truly Paradise and once you leave all you will think about how soon you can return and try to figure out how to stay longer next time.

Regards, Rick Blake

What a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a vacation home for a month and what a great surprise! The condo was immaculate, and equipped with everything we could possibly need which allowed us to spend time enjoying our vacation. The views of the harbor were spectacular, and the owner was always available to help.

Additionally, the convenience to amenities such as the beach, shopping and great restaurants was ideal. The sense of community was also comforting being that this was our first month long stay.

This was truly a "home away!"

HAD A WONDERFUL TIME AT THIS CONDO

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more. The condo was spacious and very clean. It was the right size for the 2 of us and had a second bedroom that was good for guests for the night. All the ameneties (dishwasher, washer/dryer, garbage disposal, internet access, bathrooms, TV's, etc were top notch. The view of Little Hickory Bay we had from the bedroom, living room and lanai was unbelievable. Pool was nice-- and heated. Friendly condo owners. Close to restaurants, nice beaches, happy hour bars, shopping. Didn't give 5 satrs for one reason only-- at times, the main road (Bonita Beach Rd) was noisey. Would definetely stay there again and would recommend it to our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Arne & Ann, Thank you for the positive review of our condo, we are glad that you found our condo as enjoyable as we do. We understand your comments about hearing a little bit of road noise from Bonita Beach Road during the busy daytime hours when everyone is headed to the beach. We have found that by leaving the front door and guest bedroom window closed, and only opening the waterfront windows in the master and on the lanai, we hear the birds chirping, the fish jumping in the bay, and the occasional boat going by and don't notice any road noise. Thank you again for your positive review, and we hope to have you and your friends and family back again to our little slice of waterfront paradise in Bonita Springs! Doug & Lisa Witsken

The Little Hickory Bay condominium is located 6 miles west of I-75 on Little Hickory Bay. Walking distance to the public beach is approximately 1/2 mile away. The complex has a large heated pool, tennis court, barbecue area, bike racks, and is close to fantastic shopping, churches, and several major banks. Many nice public golf courses are also in the area. The waterfront condo is fully furnished with top quality furniture and appliances. The unit sleeps 4 in regular beds with a king sized bed in the master bedroom and a queen sized murphy bed in the guest bedroom. There is also a queen sized normal height inflatable bed (made by Frontgate) available for sleeping room for 2 additional for short visits. The unit has 2 full baths, and reserved covered parking. If you would like to bring your boat, the condo has FREE BOAT SLIPS available on a first come first serve basis. On the short boat ride between the docks behind Little Hickory Bay and Wiggins Pass to the Gulf of Mexico, you will not encounter any bridges over the waterways so you don't have to worry about low clearances to go under with your boat. The Gulf of Mexico is a short boat ride via marked inland water channels to access through Wiggins Pass.
