Private Homes house description
Our comfortable 3 bedroom, 3 bath, nicely decorated home is located directly on the beach! Enjoy 6 miles of pristine, soft, white sandy beach - nestled between Ft. Myers and Naples. Far enough away from public beach access to enjoy peace and quiet, yet close enough to walk to Doc's Beach House 'where the action' is - there you can enjoy a meal, have a drink - or you can rent a jet ski, sailboat, water trike, or go parasailing.
Stroll along one of the best shelling beaches in the country where each tide brings new 'treasures' to the beach. Swimmers will enjoy the warmth of the Gulf where you will find sand dollars in abundance along the shallow sandbar.
Upstairs you will find 2 bedrooms (1 king - 1 queen and queen sleeper sofa)- 2 baths with a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room, washer and dryer, 3 TV's and wireless high speed internet - there is a desktop computer available, or bring your own laptop. You will also find a large screened in balcony where you can enjoy gorgeous sunsets, and watch the dolphin and manatee at play.
Downstairs is a 1 bedroom (queen bed and full sofa bed) - 1 bath - with a fully equipped kitchen, dinette, sitting room with pullout sofa bed, washer & dryer, 2 TV's, and a large screened in patio.
Accommodations can be rented together or separately. Perfect for sharing with family or friends - each has it's own private entrance.
Located just 25 mins. SW of Ft. Myers Airport, and minutes from exceptional dining, shopping, golf, fishing, boat rentals, watersports, sightseeing, movie theaters, nature parks, mini golf, and much more.....you won't run out of things to see and do.
Everything is provided for your convenience and enjoyment: bedding, bath and beach towels, sand toys, floats, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, board games, video game player, playing cards, etc....just move in and enjoy!
Take a sunset walk....listen to the sounds of the gentle surf and sea birds overhead. Breathe deeply and let the sea air, sunshine, white sand, and warm waters soothe your soul. It is truly paradise found.

Having stayed at the Beach house before, the re-modeling was an unexpected surprise. I enjoyed my first stay, but was a bit disappointed by the lack of sea life. Saw a few sand dollars, but not much else. THIS time: 8 dolphin sightings, an octopus, a starfish, a horse shoe crab and pelicans diving for fish every fifteen minutes! We did use the kitchen for pastry baking (the granite counter top is great for rolling), and the house was a wonderful place for a 50th wedding anniversary. Thank you for allowing us to stay and get away.

Love this place!!!
This beach house is amazing. We have been traveling to the U.S. for the past 10 years, and this is the best we have ever seen. On arrival there was a generous welcome tray, and the house was sparkling clean. The owners have thought of everything to make this a home away from home. The location is stunning. The lanai runs the full length of the house, and looks directly over the gulf. Words can not describe how much we loved this home. It was perfect. Our memories will last a lifetime.

Great Beach House
Valerie, the beach house is terrific. The welcome goodies were a nice touch. A fully equipped kitchen 'almost' tempts you to cook. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms spacious. We enjoyed a walk on the beach every morning, and sunset from the balcony every evening. We plan to come back for our next vacation.

Fantastic!!!Guest comment entered by owner
Thank you Valerie and Jeff for having such a clean, neat, well kept, and nicely appointed beach house. We were delighted to find a pet friendly house here in Bonita Beach, and particularly pleased to see how nice it was in person. The wine, fresh fruit, cookies and other snacks were a very nice touch. We will be in touch very soon with a request for another week here next year!!!

Another great stay at the Crustacean...
Another great stay at the Crustacean...
This was our second stay at this great beach house and it was even better than the first. Val continues to add little extras that improve on the house and our stay. Still, the reason we go, and will go again, is that it is a great, clean, comfortable, spacious house in the perfect location with an awesome private "back yard" that will get almost as much use as the beach just beyond.

Great House!Guest comment entered by owner
We have stayed at several beach rentals over the years, and this is the FIRST one that we felt was a "home." We would be comfortable living here. Great house - great venue! Thank you for a memorable experience.

Enjoyed our stay so much!
Truly a home away from home - every detail was noticed. Loved being able to invite family over after all the wedding festivities for a day at the beach, with everything we could need or want already here for us to use. Thank you for thinking of everything. The welcome basket was a special treat. We will be back!!!

A Beautiful setting
A beautiful setting! This was an annual girls trip - 4 generations. The house is beautiful, well-stocked & lovely linens. We've seen some lovely beaches over the years - Hawaii, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and this is one of the best. Beautiful here!

About the owner: Originally from Chicago, Illinois Currently living in Coral Springs, FL - just outside of Ft Lauderdale Happily married to Jeff since 1981 2 children - ages 25 & 21 Self-manage the beach house rentals LIFE IS GOOD......
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We vacationed on Bonita Beach every summer for 12 years before purchasing this home. We had rented it several times, and knew that we loved the house, beach and location...the decision to purchase on Bonita was an easy one. The beach house is not just an investment property for us, it is our second home. It is well maintained, clean, and very comfortable. We take pride in self-managing, maintaining, and cleaning the house ourselves to ensure that it's up to our high standards. We have several wonderful guests that return year after year, and have 100% positive feedback from everyone who has stayed in our home.
