Centrally located in the beautiful secluded gated community of Bonita Bay. The condo is equipped more like a daily live-in home, rather than a vacation rental.

Flatscreen TV/DVD players with streaming online media in both bedrooms and living room, as well as wireless (Wi-Fi) high speed internet access throughout the condo. 18/10 stainless cookware, beach towels, coolers, beach bags, tennis racquets, wine aerator, coffee grinder, and a DVD collection of 50 titles are some of the typical extras that we provide as normal condo contents. Credit cards can be used as a form of payment. The condo has never has been smoked in and is being listed as a Non-Smoking unit!!
Please also check out our other condo that we just purchased in 2018. It is on the second floor and is located directly above this condo (# 4839148):

The pool house is equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, and tables for eating and/or socializing. Restrooms are conveniently located within the pool house. Private tennis courts are just steps away from the pool and the adjacent gas grills for cooking. The Wild Pines pond is a stones throw away from the back door of the condo for fishing. A swinging bench rests on its bank for relaxation and wildlife viewing as well.
Located outside Bonita Bay's gates is an abundance of restaurants and shopping to the North and South of the community along the U.S. 41 highway corridor. Within walking distance is 'Promenade at Bonita Bay', which is a newly developed array of restaurants and retail shops that are located directly in front of Bonita Bay. The Promenade restaurants and retail shops were built for the residents of Bonita Bay as an additional convenience and amenity.

My wife and I were both born and raised in Illinois and we currently live in the inner city of Chicago. She is a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Nurse and I manage golf courses for the Chicago Park District. We have a toddler and a Vizsla dog that is more or less our second child. We love our summers and fall here, but there is nothing like wearing flip flops in the middle of winter in Florida! We have furnished and equipped the condo like it's our second home, so the experience is like being in your own home for all the couples and families that have the ability to enjoy it!
Brett purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Brett chose Bonita Bay
A gated community and close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico was a must. Bonita Bay is a master planned community that rivals or is equal to anything that Southwest Florida has to offer, including Naples! I bought the condo when I was in my 20's, because I was so impressed with all that the amenity driven community had to offer. As previously mentioned, I was looking for a gated community and a condo that was unique, so the Wild Pines complex was an easy sell. From the courtyard building to the beautiful landscaping, I was quite impressed. The all concrete building construction was a nice bonus too. Even the ceilings inside the condo are solid concrete. Lastly, it was about the overall experience and way of life for me. Whether you live full time, part time, or simply just vacationing, Bonita Bay is truly an oasis and a different way of life. You feel like you're in your own little secluded village when you're behind the gates. The community provides a tropical getaway that is so hard to explain on a webpage. You truly have to experience it for yourself to appreciate the 2400 acres of private land, half of which is dedicated to native landscape and golf courses. From the twelve miles of walking/biking paths to the boardwalks to the private beach, it's something to create lasting memories for all that experience it :-)

We had a wonderful week at this condo which is perfectly located in a park-like setting. Brett pays attention to all details and was extremely helpful in all communications. I highly recommend staying at this lovely condo!
Great week in Wild pines
We had a fantastic stay in this condo - It had everything we needed, and just the right "homey" feel! The private beach was beautiful, and with both loungers and sun-umbrellas provided, we couldn't ask for a better beach day.
We definitely recommend Brett's condo, and hope to come back some day!
Great stay! Very nice place. Brett was great about getting all of the information needed.
This property is very well maintained and clean. Had everything we needed for our stay.
The owners are awesome. I have done allot of vrbo rentals and Brett was by far the most informative. Great communication. The condo is extremely comfortable, clean, and updated. The community has allot to offer. Gated community with 3 private parks,bike and walking trails, butterfly garden, pool, we saw allot of rabbits, and birds, even a few turtles. It was awesome. We will be back, thank you
Great Location & Fantastic Host !!!
First of all let me start this off by stating that the host "Brett" was extremely responsive and helpful. He actually made our first experience in the area quite enjoyable. His condo unit was mostly updated and had everything you can possibly think of, from laundry detergent pods to an inkjet printer that we used to print our boarding passes. My wife and I would have no issues staying here again. Thanks !!!
Other Activities: Parasailing, Boating, Health/Beauty Spa, Miniature Golf, Kayaking, Basketball Court
