Great vaule!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as we were expecting...comfortable and located in a nice quiet neighborhood atmosphere. Great value, and being shuttled to the private beach was wonderful. Conveniently located to everything, and many great restaurants.

Bonita Bay Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our first vacation in this part of Florida and the time spent could not have been any better. We met so many people in the condo complex as well in the Bonita Bay Community. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Spent many hours playing tennis and pickleball. Having a shuttle to take us to the beach was convenient. Be advised the condo is not that large so I would not recommend more than two people. Just a note as well you are facing the first tee or fairway on the golf course and the mowers start at seven in the morning. For us this is not a deal breaker. Would we stay in Bonita Bay or deal with Dean in the future? Yes in a heartbeat. We only stayed two weeks, wish we could have stayed for much longer.

Very Peaceful & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Just as advertised, what a great place for a couple to unwind. The big comfy chairs on the lanai overlooking the pond and golf course were our go to spot. The condo is very clean, the furnishings including the bed were very comfortable. Love the area, it’s a short drive or shuttle to the beach and it’s also a short drive to Naples or Delnor Wiggins State Park.

Was fun to watch the alligator emerge from the pond and walk across the golf course to another pond. Also many birds (herons, egrets, eagles) and other wildlife were constantly available for watching at close range.

Absolutely no complaints whatsoever, it was a wonderful stay and we plan on returning. Thanks for having us Dean.

We enjoyed this rental very much it had a nice peaceful location and the views from the lanai were great. Unit was furnished well and kitchen was nicely stocked. I would definitely stay here again if unit was available. Our rag doll cat Chloe absolutely loved the screened lanai!

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Dean's unit in Bonita Springs! This one bedroom condo is perfect for a couple. We found the unit to be very clean and comfortable. It is located in an area that's not far from the beach, shopping and site seeing. Dean's unit is probably the best provisioned condo we have ever had. Looking forward to our next visit already.
