Car: Not Necessary

Only minutes to Wiggins Pass State Park, Lovers Key State Park, Barefoot Beach, Bonita Beach, and Ft. Myers Beach. 5 miles to new huge Coconut Point Shopping Center full of fabulous eateries and stores, like Gulf Coast Center just a little further.

Located at the end of the street the property is on a point or peninsula. The building is surrounded by salt water. Little Hickory Bay is in front with expansive bay and mangrove views facing west for great sunsets from your decks and all rooms except for one quest bedroom. Wide canal is on side with the 90' dock for fishing. Approx.1 mile to beach.

Other Activities: Rent on beach- jet skis, paddle boats, sail boats, paddle boards..or parasail. Rent in the bay- pontoon boats. Close by dine-in movies,walk to miniture golf, or walk to yoga classes at 2 different locations! Walk to bait shop for your fishing license by the week and rent equipment there to catch your dinner. Walk to the 7-11 convenience store for morning newpaper or that last minute botlle of wine. Convenient YET quiet and away from it all!

I really enjoy driving north along the beach and inlets thru Lover's Key State Park, thru Ft Myers Beach onto the causeway taking you to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Then stopping for lunch at the famous 'Bubble Room' a step back into childhood.

Traveling south- I love to stroll 5th Avenue in Naples of late European style outdoor dining and visit the galleries and then Naples Pier.

Golf: These are just some of the Public Courses in the Area. South West Florida- Golf Capital of the World! Many of the courses below are within 3 miles of your vacation rental.

Golfing guests from the U.S. and Europe have great results from using the websites- for discounted tee times and coupons. is also helpful for the courses web sites and driving directions.And I can email you a long list upon request.

Guests can catch fish from the land and dock. Some types available are:Pampano,snappers, whiting, sheephead, snook, small grouper, ladyfish...

I can email you a list of boat, kayak and bike rentals in the area.

Twins and Red Socks spring training just a short half hour trip north!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Hello everyone! That's me several years ago in Hawaii. Born in CN, raised in N.E. Georgia, lived in England, high school in New Jersey, college years in MA. After college I lived in Europe, Key West and Naples FL. Then moved to Hawaii. Aging parents in Florida drew me back to this great state where I continued in the housing business. This is the only house I have left after having sold the rest recently. So StarBay gets my full attention and every decorating idea I come across! Please see my other Homeaway listings. In Bonita 211374. In Naples golf course condo by the month 3669521

Why the Owner Chose Other Bonita Springs Properties:
Who doesn't enjoy a home DIRECTLY on the water with fabulous views and located next to 6 miles of pristine white beach . This was a dream of mine. WATERFRONT, WATERFRONT, WATERFFRONT. 220 feet of bay, 110 feet of canal frontage. So when I found this gem it was a dream come true!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's very unusual to find a property with all these great benefits. Most water properties look across a canal into some's living room. You have to keep your curtains closed when you stay there! But off the deck and patio below are UNOBSTRUCTED views of water, mangrove,wildlife and sky! A world away- And yet walk to restaurants, cafes... Short drive to unlimited entertainment, shopping... The property itself has every amenity and a 'feel good' atmosphere.
