Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 4-5)

Centrally located in the beautiful secluded gated community of Bonita Bay. The condo is equipped more like a daily live-in home, rather than a vacation rental. Both bedrooms and the living room have flatscreen TV/DVD players with streaming online media, as well as wireless (Wi-Fi) high speed internet access throughout the condo. A full size iPad for online web surfing is provided as well as 18/10 stainless cookware, beach towels, coolers, beach bags, tennis racquets, wine aerator, coffee grinder, and a DVD collection of 50 titles are some of the typical extras that we provide as normal condo contents. Credit cards can be used as a form of payment. The condo has never has been smoked in and is being listed as a Non-Smoking unit!!

Bonita Bay surpasses all others with regard to amenities and mass acreage. Among Bonita Bay's gated 2400 Acres:

- Twelve miles of walking and biking paths.

- Three parks that include basketball/tennis courts, exercise stations, picnic areas, and playgrounds.

- Boardwalks and fishing pier into Estero Bay and the Imperial River. On-site canoes can be utilized free of charge through Bonita Bay's main gate.

- Free boat docking space at guest marina that connects to the Gulf of Mexico.

- Fishing, sunset cruises, and wildlife viewing cruises can be arranged at the Bonita Bay Marina.

- Free shuttle service from Thanksgiving through April to Bonita Bay's owned property (Bonita Bay Beach - Little Hickory Island) on the Gulf of Mexico.

Guests can also drive their own vehicles off season to Bonita Bay's private beach property. Guests are provided with chaise lounge chairs as well as umbrellas (at no cost) year round. The private beach front property comes equipped with gas grills, covered eating areas, and private restrooms and showers solely for Bonita Bay guests and owners. Catered food service on-site is available seven days a week beginning in January and ending in April. Food prices are very reasonable.

Within the condominium complex of Wild Pines, there is a pool and spa with its own screened-in pool house. The pool house is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, and tables for eating and/or socializing. Restrooms are conveniently located within the pool house. Private tennis courts are just steps away from the pool and the adjacent gas grills for cooking. The Wild Pines pond is a stones throw away from the back door of the condo for fishing. A swinging bench rests on its bank for relaxation and wildlife viewing as well.

Located outside Bonita Bay's gates is an abundance of restaurants and shopping to the North and South of the community along the U.S. 41 highway corridor. Within walking distance is 'Promenade at Bonita Bay', which is a newly developed array of restaurants and retail shops that are located directly in front of Bonita Bay. The Promenade restaurants and retail shops were built for the residents of Bonita Bay as an additional convenience and amenity. Additionally, directly across the street from Bonita Bay is a Publix grocery store as well as a Fresh Market grocery store, Amoco gas station, Outback Steakhouse, Carrabbas, and Dairy Queen.

About Brett

My wife and I were both born and raised in Illinois and we currently live in the inner city of Chicago. She is a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Nurse and I manage golf courses for the Chicago Park District. We have a Vizsla dog that we adore like a child that I take to the golf courses with me everyday. We love our summers and fall here, but there is nothing like wearing flip flops in the middle of winter in Florida! We have furnished and equipped the condo like it's our second home, so the experience is like being in your own home for all the couples and families that have the ability to enjoy it!

Brett purchased this condo in 2003

Why Brett chose Bonita Springs

A gated community and close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico was a must. Bonita Bay is a master planned community that rivals or is equal to anything that Southwest Florida has to offer, including Naples! I bought the condo when I was in my 20's, because I was so impressed with all that the amenity driven community had to offer. As previously mentioned, I was looking for a gated community and a condo that was unique, so the Wild Pines complex was an easy sell. From the courtyard building to the beautiful landscaping, I was quite impressed. The all concrete building construction was a nice bonus too. Even the ceilings inside the condo are solid concrete. There is nothing worse than hearing your neighbor walk around their condo above you. Lastly, it was about the overall experience and way of life for me. Whether you live full time, part time, or simply just vacationing, Bonita Bay is truly an oasis and a different way of life. You feel like you're in your own little secluded village when you're behind the gates. The community provides a tropical getaway that is so hard to explain on a webpage. You truly have to experience it for yourself to appreciate the 2400 acres of private land, half of which is dedicated to native landscape and golf courses. From the twelve miles of walking/biking paths to the boardwalks to the private beach, it's something to create lasting memories for all that experience it :-)

Great week in Wild pines

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this condo - It had everything we needed, and just the right "homey" feel! The private beach was beautiful, and with both loungers and sun-umbrellas provided, we couldn't ask for a better beach day.

We definitely recommend Brett's condo, and hope to come back some day!

Great Location & Fantastic Host !!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all let me start this off by stating that the host "Brett" was extremely responsive and helpful. He actually made our first experience in the area quite enjoyable. His condo unit was mostly updated and had everything you can possibly think of, from laundry detergent pods to an inkjet printer that we used to print our boarding passes. My wife and I would have no issues staying here again. Thanks !!!

5 Star Updated Condo in Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the first week of April with 2 adults and 2 kids ages 6 and 3. We absolutely loved this condo! The condo was very comfortable and updated. It had everything you need and much more, beach towels, coolers for the beach, beach toys, DVDS, card games, Netflix, WiFi. We also enjoyed taking the shuttle bus to the private beach club that's only ten minutes away (free chases, chairs, restrooms, umbrellas and ice). The location is great in that you are in the middle between Ft Myers and Naples, so easy location to many area sites.There are lots of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The Owner (Brett) is very responsive and easy to work with. He provided us with lots of great information. We highly recommend this condo to family and friends and can't wait to come back!

Beautiful condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect and my family of 5 was very comfortable in the condo. We were so close to many great areas to visit.

The Bonita Bay complex had friendly staff, great amenities and was well maintained. The private beach was perfect for sunsets and the shells were better than the ones we saw on Sanibel Island. The condo owner, Brett, was incredibly responsive, helpful and friendly. We would absolutely recommend this property to our friends and we are already planning our return.

While we were down in the area we did the dolphin jetski tour (Sweetwater outfitters), visited Sanibel and Captiva Islands as well as Naples and Fort Myers Beach. We also went shopping at the many stores and malls.
