About Barry and Gretchen Schmidt
Barry & Gretchen Schmidt and Steve & Stephanie Bloemer purchased this wonderful property in June of 2011. We had planned a family vacation in the summer of 2011 but we decided to buy this fantastic location so we can come back, often. In 2013, we completed a major renovation of the house by replacing the Roof, Windows/Doors, A/C Units, installed a Stucco finish and painted the exterior, replaced two bathrooms, painted the entire interior, updated all electrical outlets/switches, refinished the inside of the swimming pool, installed a new Panoramic Lanai, enlarged, refinished and painted the pool decking and replaced all Landscaping.

Why Barry and Gretchen Schmidt chose Bonita Springs
Our family has vacationed on Bonita Beach since 1974. There's not many secret places as beautiful as this area of Florida; you'll want to keep coming back to Bonita Beach! And, we hope you love our house to keep coming back to stay with us.
What makes this House unique
Our property offers seclusion and privacy from tourists as our house is located in a residential community. The privacy of your own large heated pool and sundeck are priceless, as well as, the opportunity to sit on the boat dock and fish or just watch mother nature in action. We have bicycles for the riding enthusiast and miles of beautiful riding area to enjoy.

Perfect in every way - location, features, comfort
From the moment we drove in the driveway we were happy. The house layout and the location are perfect! We had 8 adults and 2 young children (our family) spending the week together. The house was everything we could ask for with separate areas for each couple. The pool area was such a great spot to hang out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine if you didn't want to walk to the beach. Loved everything about the interaction with the owners as well as the overall vacation. Best vacation.
How wonderful the house was part of helping to make your vacation the best.
Thanks for staying at our place.
We loved our stay at this well kept home. There was many beds, large decks, an extra tank of propane, beautiful pool and area, well stocked kitchen and lots of linens. The location was great for the beach, entertainment and best of all shopping. We would definitely stay here again if we were back in this area.
Thanks so much. So glad it met your needs and expectations.
A perfect home for families
This was my family's first time renting a home in Bonita Springs, Florida. The home was perfect and had all of the amenities that we needed for us and our little ones to be safe and comfortable. The rooms were perfect and the pool too.
The location was ideal for beach access. We enjoyed the abundant sea life, warm still waters, and we eventually perfected paddle boarding!
We also enjoyed seeing the gators in the channel.
The owners of this property were a pleasure to plan with. I received a lovely thank you letter after our stay. I highly recommend this property for anyone wanting an exceptional vacation.
Spring Break 2017
I can not say enough GREAT things about this property! The house is beautiful, inside and out. Clean, spacious, fully equipped kitchen, room enough for the whole crowd! Three families shared this house (11 total) and we never felt crowded at all. The kids loved the pool in the afternoon and evenings. We loved being on the canal ~ and got to see several manatees and even a dolphin swam by to say hello. Short walk to the beach, short drive to the grocery, restaurants galore. We especially loved Docs, the great little bar/restaurant across the street! The owners were wonderful as was the property manager. Can't wait to go back!
This beautiful home allowed plenty of space for our group of seven adults. The five bedroom/four bath home is equipped with everything you could possibly need to feel 'at home' in a tropical setting. The main kitchen was well equipped, there were two laundry rooms, as well as two common areas for people to congregate. This location is a convenient drive to the airport, to Ft. Myers Beach, and to Naples. A short walk to the beach -- which offered beautiful winter sunset views (over the gulf) from the home's deck. Great restaurants within an easy walk. The home features a heated pool under a lanai - with a view to an inlet just behind the property (where one could fish, if they choose). The home is in a beautiful, quiet residential area. We spent a beautiful, fun and relaxing four days there ... making memories to last a lifetime.
Perfect snowbird hideaway
Our five couple group enjoyed a week together in this beautiful home. The location is a short drive from the Ft Myers airport and a minute walk to Bonita beach. There are plenty of great restaurants nearby and Naples is short drive to the south. Five bedrooms, four baths, two laundries, two family rooms and a fully equipped kitchen made us all very comfortable. We enjoyed ocean views from the deck, fishing from the dock and the large, lanai covered pool. We would love to return.
So glad it was an enjoyable experience. Hope others will want to visit the area and inquire about our accommodations.
