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!

Perfect Vacation Home !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at BUCC House for 8 nights.

The house amenities, the proximity to what seemed like our private beach( just a short walk), the quiet peaceful neighborhood where we biked every morning and night, made our stay very relaxing and special.

We ate fresh grouper and shrimp almost every night on the cozy lanai. We recommend Doug’s Seafood in Bonita Springs about s 15- 20 minute ride but well worth it for fresh seafood. The owners were very responsive and helpful and the house was immaculate and well-equipped,

All of the equipment was in great shape including the bikes and beach buggy,

A real home away from home we highly recommend the BUCC House. A unusual bonus for my European wife was a bidet in the master bathroom !

House is in a perfect location for a relaxing stay away from the busy north side of the island.

  • 5 of 5

House has everything you need for a great beach vacation. House was clean, comfortable, and well stocked. A short walk to a large open beach and close to several other beaches. Molly was wonderful and provided great info to plan your visit.

Amazing time!

Molly did an amazing job keeping us in the loop and was always quick to respond. It was a nice area with a lot of fun beach toys at hand. The rental is spacious with plenty of towels and comfortable beds. We loved it and hope to be back soon!

Owner's Response: We've been in touch since Sept, when Hurricane Irma blew into our SW coastline! Bringing the kids down for spring break, for ALL of you, was exciting! Thank you for taking such good care of the BUCC house, I'm going to make sure you always have a super Ft Myers Beach vacation!!

Nice clean house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need to make your vacation the best ever. It is located 5 minutes from the white sand beach. There are beach towels, sand chairs, a beach umbrella, coolers, and even a kart to tote everything. If you would rather not walk, four bikes with locks are available to use. This house is impeccably clean with all the amenities you could possibly need. The beds are comfortable, the shower works great, and there is a nice screened in porch just off the kitchen. The location is perfect. It is close to Lover's Key State Park, and many other beaches. It is far enough away from the craziness and noise of Times Square, but just a short bike ride if that is where you would like to go. Sanibel Island is close by too! The Hostess, Molly, is a gem. She gave us a list of recommendations on things to do and places to eat even before we arrived so we could plan accordingly. She is very quick to respond to emails and lives just a short distance away if there would be a problem...of which we had none. She was a pleasure to work with. Thanks for everything Molly! We will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: I am so lucky and blessed to have wonderful guests like you! Thank you for your kind description of the BUCC house & it's location on Ft Myers Beach. I think the location is part of BUCC's relaxing ambiance, in that you can get anywhere, but also enjoy a laid back neighborhood without the hyper-frenzy on the north end of the island. You are always welcome at the BUCC house, Lois!

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The Bucc house provided us with a quiet place to stay while still being close to the attractions. The beach is a short walk from the house and they even provide a cart to carry all your items for you. The kitchen is well supplied with cooking items/utensils and a bbq grill outside as well. Beds were comfy. We spent most of our house time out on the lanai.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jean, for your comments! There's a NEW beach cart now, since I've discovered cart wheels are not sold separately! You had excellent warm weather, maybe you're our weather angel. Please come back next year! ;-)

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!
