Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Amy and David Adams bought the beach house in August 2010. We named the home after our daughter Ava- The Beach Baby! We have lived in Bonita Springs for the past 6 years.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We decided to buy in Bonita Beach because who doesn't like to be close to the water! The house is really great because its a single family home, in a single family neighborhood, but divided into two apt.s A 2 bedr/2 bath upstairs and a one bedrm/one bath downstairs.And the entire front opens up facing sunsets over the Gulf. We also liked the convenience of the home. It's just minutes to great shopping, movies and nature activites but not congested like Ft. Myers Beach with hectic traffic.
The Unique Benefits at this House: When I have stayed there in the past, I created some of my best Florida memories. Even though I was painting during the day I started the morning by taking a beach chair and my coffee across street to sit on the beach. I watched the shore birds and a few early joggers as the gentle waves rolled in. After work I brought over my glass of wine to enjoy the sunset, breezes and see the stars as they popped out of the skies. That was my pay off for working hard!
