Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Beachwood on the Bay is a roomy two bedroom, two bathroom condo with all the amenities of home. The Master suite has

a king size bed, private bathroom, dressing area, shower and sitting area with television. It has a private sliding door that opens out to the screened lanai. From here you can watch the birds, dolphins and manitees in their natural habitat or lie leisurely in bed while enjoying the breathtaking view of the sunrise over the mangroves from your master bedroom window. The second bedroom offers two twin beds with a window facing Bonita Beach. From this room you can see sunsets in all their brilliance as they dance over the gulf of Mexico. Enjoy making a home cooked breakfast in your full kitchen and then grab your beach chair, towel, sunscreen and favorite novel for a leisurely day in crystal waters.

Beautiful Bonita beach is located a short walk across the street from the front door of the unit. Here you can walk the white sand

beaches for miles, find beautiful shells for souveniers, swim in the turquois waters, or take a nap in the warm sun.

On the bay side, we have dock access for fishing available, bring your tackle box, rod and reel and see what you might catch for dinner. If you prefer a pool to the gulf of Mexico, you'll find a very private pool area on the bay side with an outdoor shower. Dad can grill his catch on the barbe while mom tends the children in the pool.

Black topped bike paths are located directly in front of our building. Travel on them to the south and you will enjoy viewing the Florida foilage, and residential palm tree lined streets. Doc's Beach House is about a mile and a half down the road and boasts relaxed beach front dining. For the adventurer you can rent a jet ski or go parasailing from here. Lovers key is a short trip to the north of the condo and offers walks through a natural preserve.

Every evening you can enjoy spectacular sunsets over the gulf of Mexico. These can be viewed from the front door of your condo or directly from the beach. Raise your glass with a loved one and make a toast. It's a sunset tradition.

For a night on the town, take a 30 minute car ride south to Naples. Here you will find restaurants of every type of cuisine. Dress to impress and do some window shopping along streets lined with art gallerys, unique boutiques and rare jewelry stores. After hours on the weekends some of these eateries have been known to double as a dance club, so bring some dancing shoes or buy them there..

Naples Tin City is filled with unique shops for those looking for unusual souveniers. Back in Bonita you will find Fleebees Flea market on Bonita Beach Road, near 75. This Flea market is only open weekends and offers great deals on just about everything. Enjoy the treasure hunt.

For the gambler the dog track is located on Bonita Beach road, and you can find Indian run casinos throughout the everglades.

Take a ride 30 minutes north to Ft. Myers Beach and enjoy many options in waterfront dining, shopping and sight seeing. Ft. Myers peir is a lovely place to see the sunset or walk with that special someone. Don't forget to stop at Kilwin's and try their amazing Turtle apple. Buy one and slice it up to share.

From Ft. Myers you can take a 3 hour Cruise to Key West for the day. In Key West you can see the home of Earnest Hemingway, shop, eat and drink. Here you can find boats to offer you great snorkeling, or diving exhibitions. The night life in Key West bubbles over with excitement.

Bonita Beach is one of those rare and special places that offers the best of both worlds. While the condo is tranquil and relaxing, brimming with the natural beauty of southwest Florida, Those desiring more adventure and activity in their vacation will find it a short car trip or boat ride away.

Educational experiences are everywhere, Ft. Myers offers the historical summer homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, See one of the first in ground heated swimming pools, tour the summer homes of Edison and Ford and Thomas Edisons work shop. It's fascinating for the whole family.

The Florida Everglades are about 45 minutes south and offer many places to experience air boat rides through the everglades. Bring a camera, you're sure to see a few alligators up close and personal. While you're there stop for lunch and try eating gator for a meal. I've tried it, and I have to say, it tastes like chicken.

The Naples Zoo is one of the nicest zoos we've ever been to. Meander down tree lined paths and enjoy the many labeled varieties of flora and fauna. Much of it is shaded, so even on the warmest days, the zoo can be a very enjoyable place to visit. It's not as large as some zoos but what it doesn't ahve in size it makes up for in charm. My boys love the boat tour through the monkey islands. You will also see lions, tigers and panthers. They have various shows throughout the day as well. Fun for the whole family.

Life in Southwest Florida is what you make of it. Relax and enjoy the natural beauty all around, or explore the adventures that await. I hope you choose to experience our home away from home. You won't be disappointed.

About 401-402 Properties LLC

I'm inviting you and your family to come and enjoy our home away from home. For many years our family has traveled to Bonita Beach for vacation and for as long as my boys can remember Bonita Beach has been our second home. Our family has enjoyed all the beauty of southern Florida, we've made life long friendships here and now we look forward to sharing some of the sights and experiences we've enjoyed here with you.

In the past we've had long term renters who have recently been unable to return. I'm hopeful to fill the empty months with people who enjoy it as much as we do. Please let me know if you're interested in making some of our favorite places some of your own...

401-402 Properties LLC purchased this condo in 2006

Why 401-402 Properties LLC chose Bonita Springs

We originally purchased this condo because we are beach lovers who also enjoy living on the water. This condo offered the absolute best of both worlds. It has the beach within very close walking distance. The bay has direct access to the gulf of Mexico. Fish Tale Marina is located about 10 minutes north of our Condo, 20 minutes by boat. Fishtale Marina is a wonderful marina offering rack storage and dockage (depending on availability), a full service department, boat store and sales department.

The beach goes for miles and the sunsets over the gulf of Mexico are breathtaking.. We also enjoy Sunrises over the mangroves every morning from our master suite. It truly is the best of both worlds.

I'm always amazed at the amount of wildlife we get to enjoy right from our lanai. You are bound to witness dolphins at play and manatee gently cruising the bay from your comfortable seat on the lanai.

If you are church goers, we highly recommend that you visit Living Waters church in Estero. They are a Bible believing church who offer contemporary worship. We find it refreshing and now consider it our home church here in Florida.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo offers tranquility or adventure... it offers rest or exhilleration...

It offers a posh experience or a more humble one all depending on your tastes and energy level.

For those who love a variety of experiences in a tropical paradise, this is your place. It does it all while still offering you the comforts of home.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here in July 2016. Our girls loved looking at the different animals in the water from the balcony. It is an easy walk across the street to the beach. The condo is in a great location. It is very quiet in the complex. The pool was nice and warm. The condo came with beach chairs. The kitchen was very nicely equipped with appliances and utensils. The beds and furniture were very comfortable.

We hope to come back in the future. Highly recommend!

Location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I loved our two week stay in this condo. It was very spacious and never felt cramped. Loved having morning coffee on the lanai overlooking the canal. After coffee, we headed right across the street to the beach. Afternoons, pool. So for a lover of water, we were in heaven. Everything was provided, from towels, linens, beach chairs. Great kitchen facilities. We would love to return. Kristen was a dream to work with and prompt to answer all inquiries. I gave it 4 stars only because the furnishings were a bit dated, however the owner plans on updating.

Great Property

  • 4 of 5

This is the fourth year I've rented this property. Wonderful location - - - - channel on the lanai side and access to the ocean just across the street. The set up is good for 4 people with a private bath available with both bedrooms. The refrigerator had issues this year - - leaking, noisy and I am sure the owners will address it. The owners are great to work with!

We have stayed here for three years and enjoy the location and the property itself. The owner is great to work with and always makes sure that we are taken care of. The unit is comfortable and has all the necessary things to make for a great stay.

Excellent visit!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo February 2013. Lots of space and everything you need is there. Loved the access to the ocean (across the street) and the view of the leeway at the back. Building is quiet and safe. Many residents are owners and very friendly to visitors. I knew the Bonita Springs area from previous vacations, but there way still much to see and do.

A great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this beautiful condo for 2 weeks (early March 2010). Although there were 3 adults and 2 small children, the condo was spacious and most accommodating for a family. I had stayed in this same building in a unit on the second floor the year previous. But this 4rth floor unit has much better views of both the Gulf and the inland waterway...spectacular to be able to view both sides from one unit! The building is small, very quiet and houses mostly owners...so I considered myself very lucky to have found this one...especially for a 2 week rental.

The pool area is cosy and never busy so one can enjoy the water with one's family. The pool is suppose to be heated...when we arrived it wasn't...we asked and was told the heater was broken....however with its seclusion surrounded by hedges it gets very warm there even if the air temps are not cooperating.

Bonita Beach is an oasis of restfulness from the March madness of Fort Myers and Naples. It still maintains open areas of beautiful sand dunes along the beach front. The beach is just a convenient 3 minute walk across the street...but watch out for the traffic of Bonita Beach Rd!

The condo was newly painted and tiled when we arrived last year in appealing "Floridian" pastels...very soothing for the eyes and mind. As well the furniture has been carefully selected to blend in with the "coastal lifestyle". The beds were most comfortable. For good times at the beach, the owner has left a good selection of beach toys, towels, and chairs.

The location of the condo is central to outlet malls, the "nightlife" of Fort Myers/Naples, close to the airport. We discovered an amazing waterpark just a short drive away as well. Next door is a plontoon boat rental which I highly recommend to discover by water the inland waterways and observe dolphins and mantarays swimming beside you...as you enjoy the ecosystem of this area.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we are delighted to back again this year.
