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.

Perfect location and excellent provisions for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First, we have found that Bonita Springs is a much better location for Gulf Coast fun. It is less expensive and less touristy than Naples, and it has lovely beaches that are almost secluded (but with the amenities.)

But about the rental.... We have stayed at rental houses for over ten years and in many states and times of year and climates. This is by far the best rental ever! When we stay at rentals we think of what is missing, what would have made our stay more convenient, or what was wrong with the unit's amenities or layout. I believe the owners of this house have prepared it for themselves and their guests with the same thoughts down to every detail.

There are basic, non-perishable (and condiment) food supplies; every cooking and baking utensil imaginable; things like napkins and foil...; cleaning supplies so that we can clean our own messes when we want; lots of back stock on toilet paper, paper towels, and tissues; extra sheets, blankets, pillows, and towels; HOOKS in every closet and bathroom for quick hanging (something rentals have always lacked), and sweet children's books.

Add to that a nice supply of "borrowable" beach and pool supplies, including chairs, coolers, and a beach blanket. This is almost unheard of. Because of this generosity, we guests don't mind leaving behind things we've purchased and cannot take home, whether it is food or pool rafts. Generosity encourages generosity.

The house is decorated tastefully like one's main house would be, not like a second home using leftovers. It is lovely, and the layout is very practical. It has tile floors that are easy to clean and furniture that you want to treat well. The DETAILS--from little framed helpful signs everywhere, to suggested things to do and beaches to visit, to labels on the light switches--make this house easy to relax in without having to guess, and they are also excellent reminders that this is someone's personal haven that they have shared with us! We loved the pool and found the whole patio area very clean and relaxing, even forgoing two beach days to hang out under the lanai.

We would definitely return to this house and greatly appreciate all of the attention to details that Mitch and his wife have put into this house. It is a true vacation retreat at a very reasonable price.

Beautiful and clean home stocked with everything a family could need

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week so my husband could attend a work conference. Mitch was aways quick (and very kind) to respond any time I had a question. As soon as we pulled into the driveway, I could tell this was a house that was meticulously cared for! The lawn has beautiful landscaping, even though hurricane Irma had just made her way through! Upon entering the house, everything was absolutely spotless. A spacious living area with comfortable leather sofas, which opened up to the also large dining room and fully stocked kitchen. I cooked breakfast, lunch, dinner during our stay and always had the tools and utensils I needed. The pool was actually the highlight of our stay. The kids were in it every chance they had. The pool was of the same standard of the rest of the house. Extremely clean with an outdoor table with 6 chairs, and two additional lounges. Everything we needed was there! Each of the bedrooms were beautifully decorated and had television with cable and DVD players. The bathrooms were also spotless with plenty of thick soft towels. The only reason I am taking away one star is because my husband and I could not sleep well on the master bed. It was rather uncomfortable to both of us, but we are a little spoiled to our memory foam mattress. This may not be an issue for someone used to a spring mattress.

Overall, I do not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone considering a place to stay in Bonita Springs. Everything you could need or want is already there. All parts of the home are meticulously cared for and spotless clean. The pool is definitely an added bonus for some family fun!

Thank you so much Mitch for allowing my family to spend the week at your Bonita Springs home!!!

Owner's Response: We were very happy to have these guests stay at our home. They let us know what time they would arrive and depart the home. They even let our cleaning crew know so they could come in and make the home ready for our guests arriving later that day. So we were very surprised to read our first rating lower than 5 stars. When we saw it was because of a hard mattress, we were even more confused, as we use the same mattress when we are at the home, and obviously find it very comfortable. As luck would have it, we stayed at the home a couple weeks and guests later, and sure enough, the first night there, we were surprised to indeed find the mattress very hard. Upon inspection the next morning, we found that some guest, unknown to us, had turned the pillow top upside down! Well, we turned it back to the correct side and slept happily the rest of our stay. We think you will now too!

Paradise in Florida

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time in Del Boca Vista. The owners clearly take pride in making sure every detail of your stay is well organised. It's clear from everything that they maintain their property with care and this makes you feel right at home.

The pool obviously is a big bonus, the rooms are very spacious and the location is just right for visits to the beaches, Naples and the Everglades.

Shopping and restaurant are everywhere.

The house is fully equipped with everything you could long for and more: bikes, pool toys, books, dvd's, towels, beachchairs and parasols, all you need are some groceries and your clothes.

We would surely recommend this holidayhome to everyone visiting the Gulfcoast.

Just perfect for relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

great house with everything you need for holiday supplied. We used the Bikes in evenings for cycling to Barefoot Beach for spectacular sunsets and to see gopher tortoises .Several national parks nearby worth a visit to see Florida birds and or course, shopping is brilliant ! House is highly recommended.

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!
