About Ed and Kate Coleman
This was our home for seven years before we moved to the mountains of North Carolina. We are professional ceramic artists and sell our work to galleries across the country. We have put many original touches to this home to make it a unique experience.
Ed and Kate Coleman purchased this Villa in 1999
Why Ed and Kate Coleman chose Bonita Springs
This property is in the heart of Bonita Springs. It's location provides quick access to all the town has to offer. It is on a quiet street that ends at the river. Bonita Springs is a great small town with beautiful gulf beaches. The Imperial River is an old growth Florida river that runs through the town. Bonita Springs is south of the Caloosahatchee River which makes it the warmest place to be in our country in the winter. It's location is fantastic, offering a short bike or kayak ride to charming historic Bonita, and a quick car ride to the beach to catch the sun setting into the warm Gulf water.
What makes this Villa unique
This home is in a fantastic spot for Florida living. It's located near the library, the pool, Riverside Park, and the newly remodeled historic downtown area. It's situated in a fast growing section of town. We love the Imperial River, and the access that this home has to it. The yard is full of mature landscaping, and we have planted and maintained it for almost two decades. It feels so tropical, and so private with privacy fencing in the back yard. It's a beautiful retreat.

Convenient, comfy and beautiful
We loved everything about this home. It was spotless and had all supplies that we needed to have a comfortable stay. It is very conveniently located to shopping, restaurants, outdoor parks and especially the dog beach.
Even though we did not use the canoe or bikes, they were there for us and in wonderful shape. Most of our time was spent on the road visiting family, but when at this home, I relaxed in the beautiful, quiet and private back yard. Perfect home!
Very Nice Half of a Duplex
This was a perfect house for us. 2 large bedrooms and a full bath with a nice kitchen and dining/living combination right on a canal which flowed into the Imperial river. We enjoyed the screened in patio and made use of the kayaks/canoe, bicycles, and artists Clay Studio where we each made a clay sculpture!! The half of the house we stayed in was very nice and private. Next time we may bring our dog to enjoy the screened in backyard!
Nicely furnished, comfy beds, fenced in back yard!
We loved this little place! Close to pool, nice neighborhood, road bicycles that were part of the house equipment! They had a grill we used to make several dinners! It was like being at our home minus the beach! We would diff go back !
A creative and relaxing retreat! Book now!!!
Incredible experience! Simple but well-appointed home with all the amenities you'd need for a comfortable stay. Kayaks, beach gear, bikes, everything! Close proximity to everything you need to make your vacation great -- community pool, park, great cafes are all in walking/biking distance; grocery stores and several beaches are only a short drive. The home is artfully decorated with Ed and Kate's creations.
And of course, there is pottery studio! Potters will love this space. You'll make some great art here!
Ed and Kate were so accommodating and helpful, letting me know about events happening in the neighborhood, providing access to their kiln, and even offering to glaze and ship my pieces back to me that I wasn't able to complete.
You won't regret booking this amazing space. Highly recommended!
Nice place, good location.
We liked our stay at Ed and Kate's place. The location was perfect for what we wanted to do. Easy to go North to Estero, Fort Meyrs. Easy to stay local in Bonita Springs and short drive the beaches and also not too far from Naples. The hosts have good recommendations and helpful tips on places to go for dining, entertainment, etc., Although, you can stay right there and enjoy the peaceful home and yard. We didn't get time to use the pottery/ceramics studio because the weather outside was just too beautiful, but I'm sure it would have been great as well. We used the kayaks and bikes (that was very nice and convenient. Size was perfect for our family of 4.
Only one possible 'negative' (and this depends on how you travel), we've used Airbnb and VRBO's for years. The Artists Retreat didn't have some of the basics we're accustomed to like spices, more complete kitchen set up, available beach towels/cooler, etc. Ed and Kate were responsive when we brought it up, however, and they are very nice and sincere. So really, my suggestion is to just let the host know in advance.
We came to Bonita Springs to look at real estate so our week didn't allow us to take advantage of all of the amenities offered, however, the location was perfect...close to the beautiful beaches, restaurants, shopping, and residential areas. The owners hints and suggestions were very helpful and accurate. All in all...a lovely spot!
It's a short walk to the recreation center with a community pool, tennis and basketball courts, and an 18 hole frisbee golf course. This Side Retreat has a great location. Very close to Riverside Park and the charming heart of Bonita Springs. Rental also includes two cruiser bicycles for getting around town.
