The Mago Bungalow is an inviting, safe, and clean home that exceeded our expectations. Restaurants and shopping are close. The yard is wonderful for your pet, and the pool and screened in area are perfect for relaxation after that exhausting time at the nearby beaches. Owners Bill and Amanda are caring and efficient and provide all you need to make your stay a memorable one. Jana and Jeff

This property is located in close proximity to shopping, beaches, restaurants and near by Naples and Fort Meyers. Bonita Beach Road is busy during the day but becomes quiet in the evening. There is lots of room in the house and in the lanai for resting, entertaining, enjoying the lovely surroundings and just relaxing. It is well equipped with kitchen needs and is comfortable throughout the house. There is plenty to do in the area and a beach pass is provided for Collier county beaches. The owners are readily available if you need anything. We had a lovely two weeks here. Thank you for your Mango Bungalow retreat!

Best place ever
Best place ever
The best vacation ever. So clean did not really need to bring anything other than clothes they have everything. Close to everything will come back every year. Felt like we were right at home and Amanda is the best so nice and kind. It is nice to know that there are such kind people still left in this crazy world. If you ever have the chance to visit do so. Ride bikes that they have there, go for walks, go to the beach or just hang out at the house it is that nice. I would also tell you to go to Futuros best food ever and within walking distance. Awesome Awesome place.

Owner response: It's a funny thing that I've realized; the nicer the guests are, the more they enjoy their vacation and Mango Bungalow. Nice guests always very welcome! Thank you Amanda
From the moment I first spoke to Amanda when we were looking for a rental property, I knew right away that this was going to be a good experience! Everything was exactly as promised. The Mango Bungalow is pristine, welcoming, tastefully decorated and met every expectation. Even our little dog's needs were anticipated (pet hair rollers, dog food bowls, etc.) The local amenities and beaches are super. Our Jack Russell Terrier, Nougat, had her first beach experience at the nearby off-leash Doggy Beach. We BBQ'd on the patio, dipped into the heated pool, enjoyed the WiFi to chat with our friends back home via Skype, shopped at nearby Malls, and watched TV when the weather wasn't so great. We drove to Bonita Springs, so were able to bring some stuff with us, but even if we'd flown, we could have stepped into the house and not needed anything except food. This home is the antithesis of the horror stories you read about vacation home rentals. An absolute gem.

Mango Bungalow was more than we expected and Amanda and Bill went out of their way to make our visit as comfortable as possible. Our dogs were welcomed as much as we were and all the little details that make for a home-away-from-home were part of the package. It was a real treat to be in that house.

We stayed at "The Mango" from 10/10- 10/24/10- and had a wonderful time. The house was very clean, everything you could possibly need is there, and in great condition. The area was so peaceful and quiet. I dealt with Amanda (owner) who was very nice, and concerned with our needs. The location is wonderful. Only a few minutes to the beach (people and doggy). It was great to be able to get in the car, and be able to get to the beach to see the beautiful sunsets, in just a few minutes. Our golden retriever absolutely loved the doggy beach. He was able to play and get exercise every day. We would highly recommend this lovely home, and will definetly be staying there again, next year. (hopefully for a longer amount of time)

Mango Bungalow is delightful set in its garden with lovely trees and shrubs - we actually had fresh lemons from the tree to put in our drinks. The property is spacious and very well maintained throughout and the carefully chosen furniture and fittings give it a special warmth and character. It is the best equipped villa we have ever stayed in. There really is everything you need from wi-fi to washing up gloves, BBQ to bikes. The owner Amanda has thought of everything to make a stay here relaxed and trouble free. Outside there is plenty of space and comfortable furniture in the lanai and by the heated pool for sitting relaxing and dining and the pool is in the sun for most of the day. The house book is a mine of information about places to visit, restaurants and shops and things to do and see in the area. We loved relaxing and walking on the nearby beaches and the beach parking permit provided was very usefull especially for the beautiful Barefoot beach only minutes away. Other favorites were Bonita Beach, Delnor-Wiggins and Lovers Key. As we are interested in nature and wildlife we enjoyed visits to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Ding Darling Wildlife reserve, 6 Mile Cypress Slough and Lakes Park. Amanda is a friendly and helpful owner and Mango Bungalow is a wonderful place to stay. It is in a quiet neighbourhood but within easy distance of the beaches and places of interest. We went home with many happy memories of our holiday and hope to return.

We were delighted to find such a great rental for the two of us plus our German Shorthair dog. All three of us loved our stay there! It is easy to recommend it! We found it well located for what we like about the area - between Fort Meyers Beach, the Bonita Springs Art League, Naples, and beautiful beaches! The huge lanai and pool were a treat as were the many local restaurants nearby. Amanda's "welcome booklet" was a great introduction to the area as well as the condo. It was nice to have an owner so available if we had any questions or concerns. And the lemon tree just kept on producing the juiciest lemons ever! We loved using them!

We enjoyed a really lovely relaxing week at Mango Bungalow. Amanda thinks of everything and we did not need to go out and buy 'extras' that we have had to do when staying in some rental properties. The bungalow is in a very quiet residential area, but close enough to stores and a pleasant stroll to the beach. Everything was clean and well maintained and the pool was very relaxing. We are already planning a return visit.

About the owner: We've always loved travel, in fact we met in JFK airport! Bill grew up in Naples, Amanda in England, we've also lived in NY, London and Hong Kong from where we've visited many exotic places. Having visited our family here for 20 years we decided to move here in 2003, because we love the climate, the beaches and the convenience of everything without the long commuting. We bought a couple of homes to run as vacation rentals, offering the type of experience we would hope to find if we were renting a home. We live in Bonita full time and we love it! Amanda works as a real estate agent and Bill is a design engineer.
Why the Owner Chose Hickory Shores:
We chose this home because of it's great location, it's close to the beach and because you can walk to several excellent restaurants, a coffee/wine bar and some convenience stores. It also has a fabulous mango tree that produces delicious fruit that we enjoy very much. The climate is great, you can enjoy warm weather 365 days a year. This part of Florida is very special, the Naples area has a lot to offer and experience and although small compared to the east coast of Florida, still has a very cosmoplotian appeal.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is situated on a large corner lot with lovely tropical landscaping, fruit and palm trees, a great outdoor area and we added a new swimming pool to enrich the experience. It's in a quiet neighborhood very close to our own home and guests enjoy walking and cycling in the morning. We provide most things a family needs including broadband internet and wi-fi, a Barefoot Beach parking pass and we welcome well behaved pets.
