Recently extended and refurbished home close to beaches, shops and restaurants.
Our three bedroomed detached home is ideally situated in a quiet and secure Bonita Springs neighborhood close to everything the area has to offer. It benefits from a large corner plot and is surrounded by lots of mature palms that provide a relaxing environment in which to enjoy the large, south-facing and fully-screened pool area. Having recently been extended and renovated, our home provides a safe, quiet and luxurious place to unwind and spend time in the wonderful Florida sun.
The master bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms have queen-size beds with the other guest bedroom having twin beds. The master is en-suite and there is a second, guest, bathroom adjacent to the guest bedrooms. All bedroom and bathroom linens are of a high quality, which contributes to the overall feeling of luxury. The master bedroom benefits from a separate cable set-top box and flat screen TV.
The open-plan living space comprises a large galley style kitchen, which has been remodeled as part of the renovation to include contrasting quartz and butcher block counter tops, high-end appliances and all the equipment necessary to feel like a home away from home. There is a light and spacious family room, equipped with comfortable seating, lots of books and a large flat screen TV with sound bar. The dining area comfortably seats six and benefits from the views through the sliding patio doors to the Florida room. There is a separate, spacious laundry room with washer and dryer and plenty of room for doing the ironing!
There is a separate den with desk, 10Meg Ethernet broadband and a Wi-Fi printer, should you wish to catch up on work while staying in the sun! The den also has a home theater system with 60” Samsung smart LED TV, Blu-Ray player and 5.1 amp (all linked to the Internet via Ethernet cable for high-speed data transfer) and a 5.1 speaker system. The CenturyLink Prism cable system has 180 TV channels. The den is at the opposite end of the home from the bedrooms, so TV can be watched at decent volumes late into the night without disturbing other occupants! The home also benefits from 10 Meg Wi-Fi and free US long-distance calls. We have a few CDs and DVDs for those times you want to stay indoors but, given the property’s garden and pool area, we find those occasions to be few and far between!
The 30’ x 15’ heated pool is south-facing and is part of the fully enclosed, floodlit, 1700 square-foot lanai that is the jewel in the crown of our home and provides a safe area for dinning, entertaining or just chilling out. The 250 square-foot Florida room has an outdoor dining area that caters for six and Adirondack chairs so you can relax in the shade under the large, outdoor ceiling fans. There is an outdoor gas BBQ and enough loungers to ensure your every comfort is provided for. Outside the lanai, we have constrcuted a sunbathing deck to get your tan topped up, predominantly for use in the winter months when the sun is at its weakest.
Our house is strictly no smoking. We cannot accommodate pets or children under the age of ten.

About Eric Booker
We are UK nationals and had been renting properties in Florida for a quarter of a century before buying our own home in SW Florida. We know what is important to renters and have endeavoured to make sure our home has those welcomed comforts.
Why Eric Booker chose Bonita Springs
Ideally situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood and with easy access to all local amenities, including shops, restaurants and beaches. Close to both Naples and Fort Myers and all the added benefits those two areas bring. Good links to the road network being close to both US41 and I75. 30 minutes drive from Fort Myers International airport.
What makes this House unique
This house has an oversized lot, large south-facing lanai with 30' x 15' heated pool and is in a nice quiet community. The area is safe and secure to bike and walk around with sidewalks along all the roads.

Great March 2018 visit
Had a good time, back yard is reasonably private and spacious with heated pool. Very clean upon arrival with enough household items to keep you going example cleaning products, coat hangers, towels etc. Large new shower / bathroom made our stay comfortable as the older bathroom are small and dated. Overall nice quite rural location with good access to SW Florida.
Great Month in Florida!
We had such a lovely time in your comfortable home! Fully stocked kitchen, enormous library, central location, attractive interiors....these were a few of the amenities that made us sorry to have to leave. However, it was the pool and lanai, where we spent most of our time, since every day was sunny and near 90 degrees, that we loved the most! Best February ever!
We are so glad you enjoyed your time in Bonita and many thanks for your very kind words. We try to treat our Florida home the same way we treat our home here in the UK and are grateful when people recognise that.
Beautiful, comfortable, well equipped, spacious home
The home is spacious. We appreciated the modern cook-friendly kitchen, which we found to be well stocked with quality cookware and cutlery - not easy to find on VRBO! Comfortable beds. Plenty of closet space. Pantry well stocked with towels and linen. We also enjoyed the comfortable den with AWESOME surround-sound TV set up. Pool looks lovely, but December was just too cold in 2017 -- we admired, but did not partake. Three bathrooms - one with very nice walk-in shower. Two of the toilets didn't flush completely... one was quickly resolved, the other persisted. The site property manager was responsive to our calls, with great follow up. The location in Bonita Springs worked well for us. Easy driving to Naples, Sanibel, Captiva, and Marco Island. We were also within a couple of hours to Lake Ockeechobee, and Sarasota. This was a very nice VRBO rental - it worked great for us.
We are so happy you had a great time in Bonita. You were very unlucky with the weather, as our Floridian friends have told us. Indeed, on some days it was warmer here in the UK!
Apologies for the toilets. We've had a plumber out and he believes we are still recovering from problems caused by Irma.
We view our home in Florida as a second home and not just a place to stay when we are out there and it is great to know that helped you enjoy your stay.
We loved the area of Bonita Springs. The house is 10 minutes from Interstate 75 so it's easy to get to anywhere. There are three big shopping areas within a 10 minute drive.. The house was very clean and set up perfectly with the furniture. The Lanai area and heated pool are great. The kitchen was well stocked with spices so made cooking much easier. There are two TV viewing areas, one being a separate theater room, which was enjoyed by all. The only drawbacks to the home, are that the two main bathrooms and one bedroom are small. In addition, there are no king beds, which is something we are use to . All in all, because we spend most of our time outside or in the TV room, we definitely would recommend this house.
We will be sorry to leave the beautiful Florida weather and this spacious home. Who'd believe you can sun and swim every day in February?! The house and pool are wonderful. The owners have thought of almost everything to make one's stay truly relaxing.
We enjoyed the area as well, ideally situated between Naples and Fort Myers - lots of museums, nature parks, beaches, restaurants, state parks. There is so much to see and do that one could be busy all day.
The property manager, Eric, was very kind and responsive when we experienced an electrical issue that affected the TV set up in the family room.
We really enjoyed the month of February in beautiful Bonita Springs and hope to be back.
Perfect Holiday Destination
This is the perfect place to stay for either a long or short vacation. The house is lovely, well equipped with everything you need and the pool area is fantastic - who needs the beach!
The house is so well placed for all the areas attractions, close to the beach, shopping, restaurants, cinemas, zoos, parks, but it's also in a nice quiet neighborhood so perfect for walking or cycling.
We particularly enjoyed going to Coconut Point which is just a 5-10 mins drive away with all its different shops, restaurants and cinema. Something to do whatever the weather.
Eric, the property manager, is very helpful and friendly.
We would certainly recommend this place to all our family and friends who want to stay in a lovely house, with a gorgeous pool and with perfect weather. We'll certainly be back.
We always want our vacation rental clientele to walk away with happy faces !
Our home is well-served by the LeeTran public transit system with routes 150 and 600 providing access to the wider Lee County area.
You should explore the area as you will find many wonderful restaurants and a large variety of shopping. There are exquisite beaches close-by from which a number of Florida wildlife species, including bottlenose dolphin, can be seen.
