Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

It was our second time at this house and continues to impress. It is spacious, spotless with a wonderful pool. We felt at home right away and enjoy the view of the golf course. Thanks so much for letting us stay at your great Florida home.

Lovely Villa - Great Time

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we noticed the care and attention to detail the owners took in renovating the house during the past summer. It was clean and definitely in the South Florida theme. The bedrooms were pleasant and comfortable and other ameneties generally state-of-the-art. The pool and lanai were wonderful and had plenty of sun for those who like sun. We have been in several homes in Southern Florida and think this is one of the best. The views of the golf course and wildlife were certainly enjoyable. Spanish Wells is located close to many activites (beaches, shopping, restaurants, Naples) and the golf course is more than adequate with its 27 holes. All in all, this is a truly wonderful home/vacation and we hope to come back in the years ahead.

Whispering Palms , what a great location

  • 5 of 5


Whispering Palms is really a stunning villa.

- It is part of Spanish Wells: an ideally located golf community , calm, very well maintained, very close to the Bonita beaches and with quick access to interstate 75 or #41 so you can easily go out and visit Florida from there.

- The villa is high quality equipped with 1st class furnitures (kitchen, TV, BBQ, Billiard table, bedrooms, bathrooms, armchairs...) and very nicely decorated (modern and carribbean style)

-The terrasse is very suitable as well with view on the golf course

-The swimming pool is long enough and kids can play in

-The Spanish Wells green fee in August is affordable : $35 including golf cart, ice and water dispensers along the course. Really appreciated the golf set that was left available by the owner.

I would heavily recommend this villa for both enjoying calm and relax time, going to the sandy beaches and visiting South Florida (Everglades, Naples, Marco Island...).

Definitely great holidays enjoyed here.

Tolles Feriendomizil

  • 5 of 5

S e h r E m p f e h l e n s w e r t ! ! !

Von uns gibt es 5 Sterne (wir würden auch 6 geben). Wir haben schon einige Ferien-Häuser / -Wohnung angemietet, diese Villa war mit Abstand das Beste ... in jeder Beziehung.

Schade dass 3 Wochen immer so schnell vorbei sind ...

Auch die Abwicklung der Anmietung mit dem Eigentümer lief reibungslos und vorbildlich.

Den anderen guten Bewertungen kann man schlicht und einfach nur zustimmen.

Restaurants (es gibt natürlich noch viele andere) :

wer gerne gute Steaks mag ... Longhorn Steakhouse

(8010 Trail Blvd, Naples, FL 34108) ...

Fisch (auch Steaks) gibt es sehr gut im

Coconut Jack's Waterfront Grille

(5370 Bonita Beach Rd SW, Bonita Springs, FL 34134)

TheCafe in Naples mit sehr guten Eggs Benedict.

(821 5th Avenue South Naples, FL 34102)

Wir (Familie mit 2 Teenagern) haben Ende August 2 Wochen in der Villa Whispering Palms verbracht und uns rund um wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist bereits etwas älter, dafür aber wunderbar eingewachsen und wurde erst vor 2 Jahren renoviert und äußerst liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet und dekoriert. Man merkt, dass die Besitzer dieses Haus auch gerne selber nutzen. Besonders erfreut hat uns die professionell ausgestattete Küche, in der man alles findet um sich auch einmal selbst zu versorgen. Eine richtige Wohlfühloase. So etwas findet man in Florida nur selten. Daher können wir dieses Ferienhaus nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen!

If you feel like scrolling down the beach “Bonita Beach” is just a few minutes from Spanish Wells away just 3 miles down Bonita Beach Road. Shopping is also nearby. If you want to dine out, we can recommend Coconut Point Mall in Estero, Promenade at Bonita Bay in Bonita Springs, Mercato in Naples, or Downtown Naples with it fine dining & shopping, beautiful galleries…. and much more.

Bonita Springs had its beginnings when, some time in the 1870's, government surveyors in a remote part of Southwest Florida pitched camp near a medicinal spring which the local Indians believed could heal the sick.

After the crew left, the site became know as Survey and the stream running from it, Surveyor's Creek. During the next decade only a few homesteaders moved in, but in the late 1880's the population of the area more than doubled when Braxton B. Comer bought 6000 acres of land around Survey and imported 50 negro families from Alabama with mules and equipment to work a large plantation growing pineapples, bananas, and coconuts. Within a few years, Survey developed from a scattering of homesteaders into a community; in 1887 a small, thatched-roof, log-walled public school was built, and by 1910 the two story, frame Eagle Hotel was in business catering to visitors attracted to the unspoiled area's bounty of hunting and fishing. In 1912, a Tennesseean named Ragsdale purchased 2400 acres around Survey.

He and his associate, Dan Farnsworth, surveyed the area and laid out a small town with streets and avenues named for potential buyers. There was no church, but, in 1915, a Naples minister held the community's first non-denominational service in the school house. The developers decided that the name, Survey, lacked sales appeal, so the town was renamed Bonita Springs; Indian Spring Branch became Oak River; and Surveyor's Creek was upgraded to Imperial River. By the early 1920's, Barron Collier, in his thrust to expand his empire, had extended his Fort Myers-Southern Railroad to include Bonita Springs which, with his new Tamiami Trail, brought another land boom to the area. And one more old place name disappeared when Fiddler-ville, so called for its millions of tiny fiddler crabs became Bonita Beach As the years passed the U.S.41 Bypass and I-75 corridors opened up more access that brought shopping malls, modern office facilities, and outstanding golf courses into the area.

Today, Bonita Springs is an attractive area with beautiful beaches, fine restaurants, and excellent recreational facilities and has become another flourishing Southwest Florida township. It is hard to realize that, a little more than three generations ago, the roots of this thriving community were a scattering of homesteaders' shacks by a creek in the back of nowhere - a place called Survey.
