About Linda Talay

My husband and I grew up in New York, but we LOVE the beach. Unfortunately, 3 months of hot weather is just not enough for us. We've always wanted to own a vacation home close to the beach. As our family grew, we found Southwest Florida to be the perfect place to take our three kids. We have so many great family memories that will last a lifetime. We hope you'll enjoy all that Bonita Springs has to offer. We're sure you will visit with us more than once! Bob and Linda Talay, Nesconset, NY

Linda Talay purchased this house in 2004

Why Linda Talay chose Bonita Springs

Feel the warmth the moment you walk through the door! So much love and hard work has gone into this home to make it warm and inviting! Many family memories are waiting to be made here year after year! We have enjoyed this home immensely with our family over the past decade and it is by far the most enjoyable place to be with my entire family! Brother, sister, mother, father, children, and friends alike!! We have many "extended family members" who come to their "second home" year after year. We truly enjoy each and every one of our visitors!

What makes this house unique

Our home is so comfortable, once you arrive you won't want to leave! It's home away from home but without all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Beautiful Bonita Springs is centrally located between Naples and Fort Myers so you never run out of things to do. Breathtaking Barefoot Beach will definitely be on the top of your list of places to visit. Beautiful sunsets and much needed tranquility! Walking or riding bikes in our neighborhood in the early morning is so peaceful. Experience a private, romantic swim in our heated pool late at night with soft music playing in the background while your wine is slowly chilling. It will be an adventure you will never forget!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is truly a beautiful home! It is spacious, tastefully appointed, clean, newly remodeled, comfortable and in a great, safe gated community. A few special features are its own private pool; that it sits on the 15th hole of a gorgeous golf course; that it is a straight drive to a beautiful beach and the nearby, absolutely delicious restaurants. The large master bedroom suite also sits quite a distance from the other 2 bedrooms, providing privacy for parents or grandparents (as in our case). The owners are also very kind, responsive and honest. I recommend this house highly and without reservation. P.S. The pool is child-safe; all three doors that lead to it have tough-to-defeat double-locks, and there is a safety gate available in the garage to put up all around it if you wish.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here first 2 weeks of May 2017. We were 4 adults. Having stayed in different areas of Florida, in the past, Bonita Springs is our favourite. We've rented in Spanish Wells before and it doesn't disappoint. The community is beautiful. Linda and Bob have a lovely home. We felt very comfortable. Very clean and well kept. The garden and the grounds around the house are very well maintained. The pool was a huge plus. And is where we spent every afternoon and had every meal in the lanai. Beautiful Bonita Beach is only a car ride away. There's everything you need for the beach, chairs, umbrellas and cooler. Brand new bikes to ride around the community.

Great restaurants, grocery stores and great shopping are all close by. Coconut Point Mall, Miramar Outlet Mall are about 15 min drive. Not to mention Waterside Mall on your way down to Naples.

Bob and Linda were always available and quickly responded to any questions or concerns. Would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home! Being centrally located to many restaurants, malls and beaches is one of my favorite things about our home. We use the bikes at least twice a day. The area is so quiet and safe; it's the perfect place to take in the scenery! The lanai and pool are where we spend most of our time as well. The fans are blowing, the music is on in the background and your hear laughter coming from the pool. Does it get any better than that?! Priceless.... Have a great summer Luisa! Fondly, Bob and Linda

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the month of April 2016. The house has absolutely everything you need for a perfect holiday. All of the rooms are very nice and comfortable with every convenience. We rode the bikes provided several times. The pool is excellent with lots of play equipment. Plenty of beach equipment is also provided. We watched two large turtles laying eggs at the bottom of the "garden". During our stay we saw two bald eagles and many other birds, just perfect. Rob and Linda are excellent and immediately responded with any questions. Would highly recommend this property.

Our family has just completed our. 6th Bob & Linda's wonderful house. Needless to say this speaks volumes about how happy we have been.

The new bikes and even a new pool cover. A lot of time is spent in and around the heated pool.Shopping,beach and restaurants and Nature Reserves are easy drives.The neighbourhood is lovely and perfect for a stroll.

Owner's Response: Hi Joanne. We are so happy you and your family return year after year. We are always striving to make our guests feel more at home and provide as many amenities as possible. We love the bikes and use them a few times a day. It's a great neighborhood to explore. Of course the pool is also a favorite. We spend most of our time between there and the beach. We're glad you and your family enjoy our home as much as we do and we look forward to having you return again this year! Fondly, Bob and Linda

Great pool home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was lovely, very comfortable and we really enjoyed the lanai and pool. We spent most of our time on the lanai - it was very pleasant, shaded with cooling fans. We had a great time staying in this home. Loved the beautiful master bath!!

The home is convenient to many groceries and restaurants, as well as a couple of large shopping malls!

The owners were great to deal with and answered all my questions promptly and refunded our deposit very quickly. We would rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Hi Sara. We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our home! The lanai is definitely one of our favorite places to relax. The ceiling fans really keep it cool and enjoyable to sit out there, especially during the day! Close proximity to restaurants and shopping were so important to us when we decided to settle in southwest Florida. The close proximity to the beach was the icing on the cake! We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future! Fondly, Bob and Linda

Fantastic house with everything you need!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect with this house that had everything we needed to make the vacation easy such as sunbeds, coolers, umbrellas, bikes and pooltoys. The house was clean and had a very good standard and a very nice poolarea. The surrondings were quiet. We would love to return again.

Warning: staying at this house can be habit-forming! Just stayed for the 6th time. Quiet and well-furnished with beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc. Liked the newly remodeled bathrooms and as always enjoyed eating meals and having cocktails poolside under the lanai with soft music playing. Delnor Wiggins State Park a few minutes south in Vanderbilt is a beautiful beach with plenty of trees and cover to avoid the mid-day sun. Randy's Fish Market and the Fish House at Bonita Beach for great gulf seafood.
