About the Property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath Home close to the beach

My husband and I love the beach and mid century design and we have been renovating Mod Beach House for three years and invite you to enjoy our labor of love.
The house is located on Little Hickory Island or Bonita Beach, directly across the street from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The house is steps to the beach in front ( three houses away from Beach Access #7) and the bay is directly in the
back. There is a boat ramp less than a block away if you are bringing your own or at the end of the street there are boat and kayak rentals available.
The beach across the street is a pristine, uncrowded six mile beach, perfect for run/walks, shell hunting and spectacular sunsets.
A mile to the south you will find Doc's Beach House, perfect for sunset drinks and another mile beyond that you will find Barefoot Beach Nature Preserve, with a boardwalk and nature education center. A mile or two to the North you will find Lover's Key Nature Preserve and Lee County Dog Beach, where pups run free and owners soak in the glorious Florida sunshine.

The house is centrally located close to world class golf, restaurants and shops. Less than a half hour to the airport and an hour from Big Cypress National Park in the Everglades, airboat ride through the Everglades highly recommended!
Also close to Coconut Mall, Fun and Sun Water Park, movie theaters, Wonder Gardens Zoo, and Corkscrew Swamp.
For bargain hunters - thrift shops galore.

Mod Beach House is a design mix of mid century, pop and beach house fun.
It is an open, breezy living dining area with a fully equipped kitchen, down to the blender and spices, and well outfitted bedrooms and baths. We have beach chairs and toys too.
There are two bedrooms; one with a king size bed and the other with two twin beds that can be easily converted to a king size.
The bedrooms have ample closet space, dressers and a complete linen closet.
The first bathroom has a brand new double faucet sink and a wonderfully retro pink bath and toilet. The second bathroom is downstairs next to the laundry room and is perfect for washing the sand off before going into the house.
The lanai off the living area is a perfect spot for morning coffee, afternoon naps or evening cocktails, the second lanai off bedroom two is perfect meditation room.

Little Hickory Island is home to luxurious single family homes, it is the "Park Place" of Bonita Springs.
There is a free trolley that goes from Bonita Beach to Fort Myers Beach and we are within a half hour to the airport(RSW),very easy in and out.

Favorite eating spots; Fish House - good fish taco and delicious oysters, Survey Cafe in old Bonita for breakfast, Bay house - like to eat in the bar, great music and food, and. Doug's Sea Food for lobster rolls.

We welcome you to enjoy little piece of Florida.
