About the property

1 Bedroom Condo, Steps to the Beach, Free Tennis, Free Internet Access

Enjoy the Florida sunshine when you vacation in our beautiful 6th floor, pristine, non-smoking, vacation rental on Bonita Beach in Southwest Florida between Naples and Fort Myers Beach. The beach is just 100 steps away and beautiful views of both the bay and beach are visible from the unit. Boating, kayaking, and canoeing are easily accessible. Many restaurants are close by and the shopping is great. Walking the beach at sunset is the most popular activity for our guests!!!

This is one of the most desirable vacation locations in Florida! Please contact us directly by calling our personal cell phone 239-287-2603 to plan your next Florida vacation.

Our unit in Bonita Beach is right across from the Gulf and offers many outstanding amenities including high speed internet access - no need to go to the lobby to obtain access. You will enjoy our freshly painted, bright and inviting studio unit. Since our full-time residence is only a half mile from this beach condo, we can easily maintain our unit to ensure that it has all the conveniences possible and stays in excellent condition. It has tile floors throughout, a full kitchen with Corian countertops, new microfiber sleeper sofa and loveseat, and a king sized bed with a Sealy Posturepedic mattress and box springs for your comfort. There is a porch where you can watch the sun setting over the Gulf to your right and see the mangroves and bay to the left.

Beach and Tennis Club, where our condo is located on the sixth floor of building five, provides two heated pools and free tennis on immaculately maintained clay courts. The condos are designed around a beautiful atrium and there are two elevators.

One of the best features is that you have full access to the beach at no cost to you. It is located in an area surrounded by private residences and protected preserves. The condo association also plans many activities for residents and guests and you are welcomed to participate. Notice of activities such as bocci ball and pot luck get-togethers are posted in the elevator.

Within 200 steps there is a restaurant within the complex where you can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner at reasonable prices: Coconut Jack's Waterfront Restaurant which overlooks the backwater bay and Doc's Restaurant which overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. Or you can enjoy a cookout with the multiple barbecue gas grills on site. Locally, there are many excellent restaurants that cater to your every taste and great shopping complexes within a short driving distance. The Naples/Ft. Myers area also has many entertainment venues from which to choose that cater to a variety of musical tastes and artistic interests. With Southwest Florida International Airport in Ft. Myers nearby, it makes it convenient to fly in and out of this beautiful part of Florida.

About William Zwicker

We have been Floridians for over thirty years, having been teachers in the local school system while raising our family in this sunny location. There is so much to do! The sunny days and warm evenings have allowed us to enjoy boating, kayaking, running and racquetball. We like to take advantage of the artistic offerings as well. During season there are a multitude of musical, theater, and gallery venues. Since we are midway between Naples and Ft. Myers, we have lots of choices from which to pick. Walking the beach in the early morning or as the sun sets is probably one of our most favorite activities to do. If you like a beautiful quiet area steps from the beach, this may also be the place for you! It is located only 30 minutes from the Ft. Myers International Airport (RSW). Watch the sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico from your porch or as you walk along the beach. The wildlife is incredible. In the early morning, dolphins feed close to the shore as many species of birds hop along the shoreline. You may spot a manatee or see an eagle soar overhead. Drop a fishing line in the Gulf and see what you get! In the late spring, sea turtle nests (protected) are marked and you can find out all about their gestation and migration at the Barefoot Beach Preserve located close by.

William Zwicker purchased this condo in 2001

Why William Zwicker chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We have found Barefoot Beach to be an unbelievably beautiful spot and kept pinching ourselves that we had found such an awesome location to live. Why not offer this ambience to others, we thought, and began to look for a place that others would find comfortable but really unique and special. We found it at the condos in The Beach and Tennis Club! The unit we purchased is a perfect spot for that long weekend getaway or to enjoy a month or more respite from the northern winters. We invite you to experience the beauty that lies outside your door as you look at the beautiful Gulf from your porch or take advantage of the many activities, restaurants, and theaters that are located in Bonita Springs, Naples, and Ft. Myers.

What makes this condo unique

The on-site clay tennis courts are in excellent shape and free to guests! Two onsite heated pools are at your disposal but you may prefer to take that cool dip in the Gulf. There are outdoor gas grills for you to enjoy at the end of a busy day. If you like boating, there are several boat rental places, too. Baywater Boat Rentals is within walking distance from the condo. The Beach and Tennis Club has activities provided by the condo association such as bocci ball and pot luck get-togethers, There is a restaurant on site where you can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner for reasonable prices. If you like to cycle, bring your own wheels and enjoy biking through the beautiful areas nearby.

Just booked our fourth stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our third stay at this condo and enjoyed it so much we’re returning for a one month stay later this year! This unit provides everything necessary (and more) to make your stay enjoyable. We feel pampered while we’re there. Everything is updated and clean. Part of that pampered feeling is the friendly ownership. They respond immediately to any request. And you can’t beat being within walking distance to Barefoot Beach. The sunsets are fantastic! Great restaurants within walking distance. We love it!

Owner's Response: We were very happy to find out from you during our emails that your mother and father stayed with us last year and highly recommended our unit to you. We just received an email from you since your response that your mother and father will be returning to stay with us again this September and are very pleased you plan to return again next year! I really enjoyed talking to you especially once I found out you are a commercial pilot. I have my private pilots' license so always love talking to a real expert aviator!

Perfect Vacation Once Again :)

  • 5 of 5

Once again we have just spent a wonderful 2 week vacation at Bill and Randy's perfectly appointed condo!

We have been renting their beautiful condo for 6 years, and we have been coming back because this unit is just spectacular.

Spotless cleanliness, comfortable bed and quality linens and towels; kitchen has been refurnished with wonderful new stainless steel appliances and the bathroom and walk in closet appointed with luxury cabinets; WIFI, cable and sound system; beach towels, chairs Bill and Randy have thought of everything to make a vacation stress free.

If you rent here, you will find yourself wanting for nothing !!!

This is truly our home away from home.

Thank you again Bill and Randy, you are wonderful and we are looking forward to next spring :) the countdown begins

Love it

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I have stayed in this unit for the past five years & we have throughly enjoyed every one of them. The property has always been very clean, the king size bed comfortable with good sheets, bathroom shower is wonderful as are the new fixtures and closet in bathroom . Plenty of quality good size towels are provided. New built-in drawers in closet with granite counter area give you plenty of room to store items that don't fit in drawers in bed room area. New kitchen appliances and my husband loves the key-less entry! High speed internet access in unit, not all units offer this. Lastly, Randy and Bill are great people and wonderful to deal with.

I have leased the condo for about six years. It has exceeded my expectations. Its close proximity to the beach makes it ideal for beachgoers. It is great for both short and long term renters. I am in total agreement with other reviews. I have decided against renting the condo again as I have need for a larger unit.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Frank for staying with us for the past six years. Now that your family is planning on visiting you in Florida, I certainly understand why you need a two bedroom unit. Best of luck in your new place.

The PERFECT place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this unit for a month but only stayed three weeks because I missed my dogs. This unit is perfect for anyone looking for a peaceful place to stay. From the lanai the views of the surrounding real estate and Gulf are perfect. The unit has unexpected amenities that make staying even more comfortable. The beach is literally across the street which makes it convenient for people who wish to eat breakfast and lunch in their unit instead of always dining out. Shells on the beach are amazing. I recommend walking south on the beach to the non public are for the best shells.

Owner's Response: Paul, Thank you for your comments! Access to the beach really is steps away and there is always interesting sea life to be seen as you take a morning stroll along the water. From pelicans to dolphins, shells to sea turtle nests, Barefoot Beach is a great place to explore. It sounds like you really enjoyed it! Bill and Randi
