Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Save your vacation money just like these owners did by being across the street from the water rather than on the beach! Gorgeous 3/2 house with vaulted ceilings and Tommy Bahama decor! Everything you could possibly need has been provided, along with directions to get everywhere you want either On island, or OFF, and over into Bonita Springs or Naples! We have created this hospitality to have everything you could ever want to use on vacation, and have it there, waiting for your arrival! So just bring your swimsuit, toothbrush, and sweater for the dining air conditioning!

It is actually a 'stilt' home, but looks like a large 2 story house. There are stairs to the front and back, to easily access the beach, which is across the street, in back. Enjoy your meals on the 'lanai' (a screened porch down here) with the fans going overhead, and a laid back relaxing vacation!

This house is located at the south end of the island, away from the 'carnival' atmosphere of North Ft. Myers Beach, where all the motels & arcades are crowded together, and traffic on the only main street is slower then walking! The trolley is available for around 75 cents/person, and makes this area easier to get to. Instead, you can drive south along the 3 short islands, through Lovers Key State Park, past beach mansions in Bonita Beach, and on into Bonita Springs or Naples, playground of millionaires all year long!

From beaching, to boating, seeing the fabulous wildlife, gourmet dining, incredible shopping, (all outside-remember, it's 70+ degrees in January!) theater, dancing, and something to satisfy every style or appetite, you'll start to understand why people really do feel this is paradise, and you will want to stay or return as often as possible! Thirty minutes from the airport, door to door! Hurry down and be prepared to want to stay forever!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week we had staying in your lovely home! It was just perfect for us! The bikes worked out great! The island is so beautiful and we ate, drank and were merry! It is definitely a place we would like to visit again! All of the information in the house was so useful! Thanks again for all of your help and we look forward to visiting again!

February Escape

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as described by prior reviewers. Quiet neighborhood, close to the beach, very comfortable. Trolley is also close by, and very convenient for any trips up or down Estero Island. The overall location of the house makes it very easy to explore the rest of SW Florida - Everglades, Marco Island, Sanibel, Captiva. And the house has all of the basics for a good vacation stay. Kitchen is well equipped, washer/dryer, bikes, beach towels, etc. The owner is very pleasant to deal with, and she kindly allowed us to modify our departure date. Overall great house, great vacation.

A Beautiful Escape

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The BUCC House was perfect for our weekend getaway! We felt at home the moment we walked in the door. The house itself was spotless and cozy, equipped with everything needed for the stay, and so close to a beautiful, quiet beach full of amazing shells! Molly is the absolute BEST! She was super sweet and accommodating from the time we committed to rent to the time we left. Thank you again! Our group of 6 unanimously agreed if we get another weekend in Bonita Beach we will be back at the BUCC House!

Owner's Response: Congratulations again on your event in the Ft Myers area! I am always tickled when I can play host to families gathered together. Start planning that weekend in the Bonita-Ft Myers Beach area so you can have more time at the beaches or take a boat out to check the wildlife! I would love to have you return anytime!

House was great. Beach access was not convenient. Really enjoyed north end and restaurants.

Wonderful and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week with a three year old and a eleven month old. It was very convenient to Lover's Key State Park, which has a very family friendly beach. We spent a lot of time on that beach! The house is nice and quiet, and very comfortable. It's baby friendly as rentals go! Only had to move a few pieces of pottery.

Molly is wonderful and soooooo easy to work with. My family already wants to come back! (And let's face it, the three year old doesn't want to leave.)

Owner's Response: You were a well-prepared guest , making sure the necessary baby items were here before you arrived! Thank you for taking good care of the BUCC house, protecting the items the baby might grab so everyone was safe... We would LOVE to have you return, try us in summer too, when the lines are gone, the traffic calm, & the sports/entertaining options are priced for fun. It's a whole different world then also. As a founding father described our our area, in the 1880's, we are "summer-land in wintertime"!

Great Time at The Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for. Molly provides everything you need and lots of good intel about the area. It's like you live there. The location is great - you can ride the provided bikes to Lover's Key or points North and South. It was a bit cooler when we were there so we slept with the windows open. Great beach - lots of shells and creatures - not too many other tourists.

Owner's Response: Our 60-70sº "cooler" temps was really our "winter" down here. It was also the lack of humidity-brrr! I'm glad you found other things to do while the winds were blowing! Thank you for taking such good care of the BUCC house!

Nearest Airport
30 Miles
30-45 minutes
Car: necessary

You are 3 minutes from the most beautiful state park in all of Florida (Lover's Key), with nature at it's finest. The best beaches and activities. Another 5 minutes and you are in Barefoot Beach Park, with the tortiose' crossing the road and bald eagles overhead, speaking of which, a pair of eagles are starting a nest in a neighbor's pine tree. Also, you can be in a boat on the back bay in a half hour including the paperwork, with dolphins & manatees all around!
