About the property

Our Bonita Springs one bedroom vacation cottage welcomes you in a green and lush setting for a sunny vacation in South West Florida.

Located 20 minutes from downtown Naple and 6 minute drive from Bonita Beach and Barefoot beach reserve, our vacation home is set in a peaceful little private 1950's community within the heart of Old Bonita Springs on the grounds of a former citrus grove.

The holiday home benefits from a private boat dock on the canal (no direct view) which leads to the Imperial river- Estero Bay and the Gulf. There is also a basic boat launch on our community. Enjoy fishing or launching your canoe steps from our wonderful home!

A perfect retreat for 2/3 persons, it features 1 bedroom and 1 shower room, a large living/dining room, a separate kitchen and a front covered lanai.

The cottage comes with two sunny areas: a little lawn full of flowers where you can relax on a long chair and a decked terrace in full sun to the side of the house. A small, well behaved, clean and quiet dog can be considered with prior arrangements. Some conditions apply.

An additional guests can be accommodated on the sofa bed for an extra fee by the week. Available year round for weekly and monthly rentals.

The Perfect Place to spend Winter

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival Giles and Michelle were there for us. They met us upon arrival and gave us a complete walk-thru of the cottage and explained everything we needed to know. Besides being the perfect hosts, they were extremely kind and we both enjoyed having them close by. How many condo and home rentals can equal that service! The cottage was perfect for us, we have a very small dog and the proximity to everything from Naples to Ft Myers was excellent. I am very sure we will stay here again as the price was very reasonable for the Naples area given the high season. Bonita Springs is just about complete with a major village renovation which will make this location even more desirable. Thank you Giles and Michelle, your hospitality and service is second to none.

Comfortable and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

I've rented condos in southwest FL a couple times. This was so much nicer and for less money. Quiet and private. And right by the canal. I brought my kayak and the owner let me keep it on the dock. Great location, just minutes from the beach, grocery store, restaurants.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Property was very clean and we were able to check in quickly.

Owner was staying next door and was able to give us a tour of the property when we arrived.

I would recommend this property as a great getaway as it is right down the road from downtown Naples.

Comfortable, clean house, and a great value

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is located on a quiet side street, and had everything we needed. Gilles was very attentive and cooperative. It is just a short drive to a very nice beach, with shopping and other conveniences nearby.

Very good place, nice people

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in that nice and comfortable cottage that had been referred by a friend who stayed there before.

The place is particularly well maintained by nice people. All amenities are there. We liked the park nearby where we walked our dog Dixie.

I recommend it. We plan to pick this place again if we come back to Bonita.
