Overview

About the property

1 Bed, 1 Bath, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 5,sleeping pad availa for small child

We had a last minute cancellation for January through March! This private home was recently renovated with granite countertops, new wood kitchen cabinets, new bathroom vanities. This property is a duplex with an upstairs and downstairs unit. The unit pictured here is an upstairs unit, but please inquire about our other rentals.

Enjoy viewing the canal and tropical birds nesting in the mangrove trees. There is a dock if you have a boat. You can navigate up to a 25 foot boat in this canal. If you don't have a boat there is a canoe at the property for you to enjoy exploring the back water canals and viewing the snook and manatee.

There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and a queen size fold out couch. There is tile throughout except for the new carpet in the bedroom. You have several dining options - a breakfast bar for two, or enjoy eating at a larger table for 4 inside or the outdoor lanai seating for two. The kitchen has all of the appliances and dishes you will need to make your stay comfortable. There is cable TV with a DVD player for your enjoyment.

The yard is very large and next to a vacant lot so you will have lots of privacy if you like to spend time outside. There is a grill so you have plenty of room for a barbecue! The laundry room is very large with extra storage if you'd like to keep your luggage there. Everyone that walks in says ''Agh, we would like to stay here''. I hope you will enjoy it too.

The duplex home is located 1 mile from the beach. Enjoy walking to the beach for breakfast at Docs or sunset cocktails. There are wave runner rentals and parasailing rentals there. On your walk or drive to the beach there are many restaurants, shops and boat rentals for your enjoyment.

In addition you can walk to the Tuscan Bistro around the corner for some of the best Italian food you've ever tried. Also within minutes of the house is C Level Wine Bar, Gatsby's Pizza, the Fish House Restaurant, Master Bait and Tackle and Winds Beach Supply Store. There are so many things within walking distance I'm sure you'll enjoy going for many evening strolls. It is a great neighborhood and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Why Sue Gauta chose Bonita Springs

This property is in an excellent location. It is quiet and private on a large lot, yet close to everything. There are limited waterfront properties in Florida and many vacationers enjoy the privacy of being in a home rather than in a condo. If you are traveling and more space is needed please inquire about our other properties.

We pride ourselves on providing a clean and comfortable accommodations.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything one can need for a vacation. Just like being in a hotel.

I was just a little over a mile from the beach... and easy access.

The owner, Sue was just a 'text' away.....When we arrived, she was there to air out the property (exterminator had just been there) and make sure it was OK....Now, that's special in my book.

Definitely would recommend to my friends...and also stay there again....

Only con was that there was not a fenced yard and my dear puppies wanted to stray....!! No place for them to romp around....

Thank you Sue...

Owner's Response: Doris was a pleasure to have at the house and left it almost better than she had found it. She was wonderful at communicating. We had a big rain storm when she was visiting and our trash can blew away. She let me know so I could replace it. Doris, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back any time!

Great stay for a lower cost place

  • 4 of 5

For what we needed this place was great. The screened in lanai was really nice to have, especially with a toddler. The unit was very clean inside and having laundry onsite was a great feature. The beach is a nice mile walk down the road if you don't feel like driving and/or finding a place to park. We definitely took advantage of the beach chairs as they were perfect! My only cons would be the noise from the main road behind the house, and the unit could use a little updating. The vertical blinds didn't work very well, the sliding door handles were a bit rickety, and a few of the screens on the lanai were really loose and dirty if you (or your toddler) touched them. There is a coffee maker and toaster in the unit, which is nice, but no coffee filters so bring your own. Also there is not an ice maker so plan to bring a bag of ice, especially if you're planning to pack a cooler for the beach. Overall it worked for us for a couple days, but I think if I needed to stay longer I might look for a place with a few more household comforts and amenities.

Owner's Response: I truly thank you for your feedback. I am not able to get to the unit between every rental and I rely on my cleaning crew to inform me if anything needs attention. I will make sure those things are taken care of.

Relaxing Beach Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Location is great! Quiet, beautiful and relaxing place right on the canal. Loved the back porch! Home is very clean and updated! Everything that you need is there for you including beach chairs, umbrella and fishing equipment!! Owner is great to work with! Only possible improvements would be an updated mattress and wash cloths in the bathroom! Other than that, it's a GREAT place and we recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. I greatly appreciate it. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We just bought a new mattress for the upstairs unit last month, so you must have stayed in the downstairs unit. That is good to know and I will get a new one. I will also get washcloths.

Great Little Place in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as we expected based off the other reviews. It was very easy to find, right off the main boulevard, but very secluded at the same time. Just east of you are groceries, shops, etc., and just west of you is the beach. We love the canal. We took full advantage of the canoe. We intended to rent a boat but unfortunately due to the Hurricane Matthew scare, no one would risk it. Bonita Springs never was really affected by it though, and we had great beach days every day - Just a mile drive up the road, and you're at a public beach with ample parking (reasonably priced.) It is a very 'shelly' beach so bring some flip flops! It was a great beach, not overcrowded or as commercial as Ft Myers which is just a short drive north. We had hoped there were fishing poles at the house, but we were easily able to rent poles from a bait shop walking distance from the house. We caught some catfish, and accidentally lured a small, but harmless gator with my top water frog lure. It was very hot outside but the air conditioner worked VERY well in the house! All the amenities we needed were in the house. I would suggest replacing the batteries in the TV remotes, and maybe updating the TV in the bedroom, but other than that, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you to Sue for great communication anytime we had a question!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a good time. Wow, you had some excitement with that little gator! I've seen tons of manatee and dolphin but never a gator. I wonder if because of the hurricane he got mixed up because they aren't supposed to be in salt water. Anyway, it will be a great memory for you. Thanks for the feedback on the batteries. I'll make sure they are changed. There should be fishing poles in the laundry room. I'll double check to make sure. You were a pleasure to have as a guest and thank you for the great review.

This vacation rental is situated on a large private lot overlooking a canal. Enjoy coffee (or wine) on your lanai looking for manatees and viewing the birds in the mangrove trees. It is an easy 1 mile walk to the beach. Wake up and walk to Docs on the beach for breakfast, or walk to one of the several fantastic restaurants within minutes of the house. There's Tuscan Bistro, Gatsby's Pizza, C Level Wine Bar, The Fish House, Randy's Fish House and many more. There are beach chairs provided but if there is anything additional that you would like for the beach just walk across the street to Winds for all sorts of beach supplies. If you would like to try fishing, Master Bait and Tackle is across the street as well. There is a canoe provided for your use. Canoe to the end of the canal to view some of the largest snook you've ever seen.

Barefoot Beach is a gem within minutes of this rental. It is ranked #2 in the country.

You can drive through this community and view the multi-milliion dollar homes. At the end of this community is a public beach with a boardwalk where you will surely view tortoises and all sorts of wildlife. If you would like to rent a motor boat during your visit, there are also many boat rentals on Bonita Beach Road on your way to the beach.

This rental is perfectly situated in the center of Bonita Springs. Explore all that Bonita has to offer - great beaches, the greyhound race track, quaint shops on Old 41, free concerts at Riverside park, and the many great restaurants. The Coconut Point Mall is located 5 minutes north of your rental. This enormous outdoor mall will take you more than a day to see it all. There is also the outlets located one exit North on I75 along with the Germain Arena that offers performances as well as hockey games played by SW Florida's Everblades Hockey Team.

Naples is less than two miles south of where you will be staying. Enjoy the very upscale restaurants and shops at the Mercato and 5th Avenue. Go to Tin City in Naples and take a boat ride to view all of the multi-million dollar homes of Port Royal. During your stay make sure you check out what performances are being offered at the 'Artis' (formerly the Philharmonic). Many stars do performances here while visiting Naples. Also, make sure you don't miss high tea at the Ritz Carlton Beach Club. This is truly a memorable experience. If you are visiting during the Christmas Season with children make sure you don't miss the Willie Wonka event at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club. Mr and Mrs. Dahl (Son and daughter and law of Roald Dahl, author of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) host this fantastic event each year. Also in Naples is the Naples Zoo, Waterpark and Children's museum.
