The quiet lane has virtually no traffic. Out back is a beautiful private caged heated pool surrounded by a professionally landscaped lawn with lush tropical foliage, providing privacy from neighbors. You will even appreciate the view at night thanks to the landscape lighting.

About Jim or Lisa

We are Jim and Lisa in Indianapolis, Indiana. We both grew up in Indiana, with one of us attending Purdue University and the other attending Indiana University.

Jim or Lisa purchased this house in 2013

Why Jim or Lisa chose Bonita Shores

We have vacationed in the Bonita Springs area for several years, and decided that when it's time to retire we would move there. Well, we found the perfect house 10 years before retirement so we decided to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

We picked this home over many others for several reasons. It's on a quiet lane with no through traffic. It's not in a gated community, which means family and friends don't have to check in. It's very close to one of our favorite places...the beach! And it's a beautiful Florida style home with a great pool and wonderful landscaping.

Better than home!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a house, the site was referred to me by a fiend that has used it many times. The house was great vary large, comfortable, and spotless. The beds are big comfortable and a private bath for everyone. I never wanted to leave the pool and outdoor area. Jim and Lisa do a FANTASTIC job with the house from the pile of pool toys to the beach stuff and coolers, bikes and so much more. There kitchen is set up better than mine, more dishes and better pots and pans than I have! All the little things are just over the top, the friend that told me about homeaway said that I found a real jem other places are not nearly as well done. Hats off to the two of you! I will be coming back again.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time. The owners Jim and Lisa were very nice showed concern with our comfort. The house was clean and had all the amenities of home. We especially liked the lanai and pool. With all the foliage surrounding the backyard it was very private. Next time we vacation in Florida we'll see if this house is available.

Perfect vacation

Thank you for this wonderful residence! We, a family of four from Germany, spent unforgettable days in Bonita Springs. The property is very clean and well appointed. Our kids enjoyed the pool and their rooms very much. It is close to wonderful beaches and we were happy to take the beach equipment with us. We really hope to come back!

Wonderful Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Lisa,

Thanks for a wonderful Christmas spent at your property for 8 days during the past Holiday season. First of all, the property was immaculate and well appointed. Secondly, we are from Wisconsin and the weather in Bonita Springs was 80 degrees or greater during the whole visit. We brought our college age daughter with us and she really enjoyed the property with plenty of room to lay out at the pool and great internet service to keep up with her friends. We did not experience any difficulties at all and great instructions were included for just about any contingency.

Thanks Again,

The Knobels
