About Mitch

We have lived in Michigan for 57 years, and regularly travel to Florida. We make sure to visually inspect the home ourselves at least four times a year. We plan to stay there ourselves when we retire. This is OUR neighborhood!

Mitch purchased this house in 2008

Why Mitch chose Bonita Springs

We chose this property for many reasons. The homes and streets are safe and quiet. It's safe to walk, or ride bikes anywhere. It's closeness to the water lets you walk to the beaches or backwater. The home has plenty of privacy if you want it. We loved the openness of the kitchen/dining room/great room, and the way the master bedroom leads right out to the pool. There are tons of shopping and eating opportunities nearby, some within walking distance. With Naples to the south, and Lovers Key/Fort Myers Beach to the north, there's no lack of things to do. Lastly, we are far enough south that the chances of cold weather are almost nonexistent.

A Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Mitch couldn't have thought of anything more to make my stay relaxing and carefree. All other reviews I've read point to the proximity to everything, beaches, shopping and the privacy of the yard and pool area. Also how clean the house was. All are absolutely true! Can't wait to back again. Don't miss this Gem of a house....Roy

Awesome house, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home today after spending a week in Bonita at Mitch's house. We are all sad to be home. The house was absolutely perfect for our family with 2 kids, ages 7 and 10. The house was spotless and equipped with everything you could ever need on your Florida vacation. Beach chairs, toys, towels and coolers.

The pool was the bookend to our everyday schedule. Every morning and every evening we were in the pristine pool relaxing and swimming with the kids. My husband loved cooking on the outdoor barbecue too.

Our two favorite beaches Barefoot and Lovers Key were just minutes away.

We also loved the mini golf and Royal scoop shop within walking distance on the house. Quiet neighborhood, friendly neighbors and convenient to everything. Can't wait to go back!

Truly perfect... A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect. My wife and I have visited Naples many times and this was the first time renting a home. We will never consider any other option! We had our 10 month old daughter with us and this truly felt like a home away from home. The house is perfectly equipped for EVERYONE. The pool is heavenly and sitting on the back lanai felt like we were in paradise. It was a perfect spot for the entire family and I can't wait to make this an annual trip to Mitch's home. If you are looking to rent in the Naples / Bonita area, look no further and book this property. You won't be disappointed!!!

Very relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great vacation at Mitch and Kim's home. We went to the beach (Lover's Key or Bare Foot Beach) everyday and the kids swam in the pool while we fixed dinner every night. The home is ideally located (close to beaches, all the shopping you could want and scoops ice cream shop). I'm was very impressed with how clean the home was and that it was stocked with everything you would need. The rental process was easy and Mitch checked in once we were settled to make sure we were all set.

Ideally Located for Beach Lovers

  • 5 of 5

We just returned after a week’s stay at Mitch’s Residence. He is approximately 10 minutes from Barefoot Beach and a few minutes more to Lovers Key State park.(Both beautiful beaches). My sister in law enjoyed diving for the Conch shells that were in waist deep water at Lovers Key and during a half a day at the beach, we collected between 2- 3 dozen shells which we threw into deeper water as the animals were still in the shell. We then spoke to a Local Floridian, who then told us to try Barefoot Beach if we wanted to go shelling.

Just driving to this location is a visual treat as you have to drive through an area of very high end Homes to get to the Beach. (Should you win the Lottery, attempt to purchase one in this area).We parked at the furthest parking spot and for 3 days went shelling for an hour just walking to the extreme end of the Beach while speaking to other collectors during our walk. We returned home with a unique collection and also saw 2 male Gopher Tortoises in a pushing match (mating season) just off to the side of the parking area.

Mitch’s house and yard were very well maintained and he has thought of everything to make one’s stay an enjoyable one. Having beach umbrellas and towels available made so much sense to us. When not at the beach, we drove to Sawgrass Mall in Fort Lauderdale,(350 stores) and also to the Miromar Outlets.

Mitch’s home is located about 30 minutes south of Fort Myers and 30 minutes north of Naples and of course 10 minutes from some very beautiful beaches. He was a pleasure to deal with and we have discussed among ourselves that if Florida is on our Travel list again, we would definitely like to stay at his place.

Perfect Villa, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous holiday. The Villa is very well appointed with very comfortable beds. Kitchen has everything you need with the addition of a great gas barbeque. Well located being only one mile from the beach and plenty of restaurants, shops and supermarkets. Villa has first class wifi connection and cable TV. Would highly recommend this home and have already booked my return visit for 2014.
