About Dawn

I'm just a country girl from New York growing some new roots in beautiful Bonita Springs. I moved here in September of 2012. Fell in love with Bonita Springs, then met a boy and fell in love again! Now, I'm stuck in, what Max and I like to call, the 'Bonita Bubble' The rest of my story? You'll have to wait for the book!! :)

Dawn purchased this condo in 2014

Why Dawn chose Florida South West

I was blessed to have an amazing aunt who loved me enough to leave her beloved condo to me. She absolutely loved Bonita Springs…I guess she knew I would too. I hope she's smiling down from heaven as I slowly renovate the place she called home for over a decade.

I've made some really great friends here, most of whom you'll undoubtedly meet during your stay. Someday, when we don't have dogs, we'll live in the condo. We still live in the area because we're, as I said, stuck in the 'Bonita Bubble'! So we're close by to take care of any issues or additional service :)

What makes this condo unique

You get to meet some amazing people (no…not just me! hehe :) Seriously though, it's a great place to stay, great beach, places to see, things to do and fun bars/restaurants (our favorites being Sneaky Pete's, where Max works, Coconut Jack, C-Level and many others…OH, and , of course, you get to meet Max and I!! :)!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a wonderful stay at your condo! Sunsets here are one of a kind and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! Thank you so much :)"

Effortless getaway

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for an easier and more effortless weekend getaway. Dawn had her condo set up with relaxation in mind. From the moment we walked in, we knew we were in good hands. The space was comfortable and had everything we needed. Whatever I wanted to bring to the beach she had ready: beach chairs, small or large umbrellas, beach mats, towels, a cooler and even a cart to transport it all. Access to the beach was a short walk across the street. The patio provided a nice unobstructed view of the gulf with plenty of seating to encourage us to sit and enjoy the view. There were plenty of personal touches throughout that showed us how much she loves this condo and how much her guest's comfort is important to her. It's a pretty area and we felt safe walking around at night. My husband and I have already talked about coming back for another stay. Thank you Dawn !

Perfect Relaxing Beach Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Dawn, Thank You so Much for a very much needed relaxing Beach vacation for Ted & I - Your place was Perfect!

We couldn't have asked for a better week weather wise, as when we left Chicago, it was 32 degrees. The mid 80's & full days of Sunshine were exactly what we needed. The condo has the perfect view overlooking the sparkling Gulf, Beautiful sunsets every evening! We especially loved that we could take a few short steps to the Beach & Doc's - Great food & awesome service! It's in a Great Location, not too far from the grocery store & restaurants. We frequently ate at Doc's, as it was nice & close. We did venture out for a nice dinner to Charlies Boat House, just a 10 minute drive North on Estero Blvd. Another day, we decided to take a drive to Lovers Key State Park, It was BEAUTIFUL, $4 entrance fee, tram to beach from parking lot, clean restroom facilities, concession for a quick bite & all day lounge chair rentals for $8/ea. We also went back there for a short hike on the nature trails. We also drove to Sanibel Island, rented bikes & then drove up to Captiva & had dinner at Mucky Ducks, would definitely recommend, food was wonderful there as well.

The condo itself was absolutely the perfect size for the two of us, Clean & Tidy, just the way we like it! Stocked with a couple of beach chairs, umbrellas, towels & beach mats, etc. I'd suggest that if it's only a couple, to bring along a small, collapsible lunchbox sized cooler, for packing beverages to bring to the beach. Dawn has a larger cooler, but it seemed too large for a few bottles of water. The shower is large & has great water pressure. The King size bed is extremely comfortable, If I had one complaint, it would be that I wish the pillows were as comfortable (but I've been called a "pillow-snob" & only tend to be able to sleep with down pillows). Although we didn't cook any meals, I certainly could have, the kitchen seemed to be completely stocked for what anyone who chooses to make a meal. I especially appreciated that Ted could go down every morning to the onsite cafe & grab his 1st meal of the day :) Everyone we came into contact in the building was extremely friendly ! - Although we didn't get the opportunity to meet Dawn personally, she was extremely accommodating throughout our entire rental process, responded quickly to emails & texts. We've already decided that we'd like to plan another stay this fall !! We're Already Looking forward to another Stay!!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo is nicely decorated. Appliances appear to be new. Furniture and bed are comfortable. Beach is across the street. Screened balcony with beach view. Bay is in back - a great place to go exploring with a kayak. There are beach towels and toys in the closet. There are books and board games if you need them. This place has it all. Dawn is marvelous and glad to answer questions to help you find the places, activities and restaurants you seek. Had a wonderful time, hope to be back soon! Thanks Dawn!

Two Weeks of a Lifetime of Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Our goal was to have a beautiful place to hang out between adventures. We wanted to have the sight and sounds of the ocean. We could walk the beach, see unbelievable sunsets and have a few very nice eating spots within walking distance. This unit is personally managed and decorated with a beach theme and for comfort. We couldn't have asked for more. Dawn does a great job of taking care of her tenants. We WILL be back!

Many thanks and a "Must Stay" unit!!

  • 5 of 5

1st – met owner (Dawn) on site at time of check in – that is cool!! 2nd – best beach view and sun set – absolutely prime location. The unit is nicely decorated and has extras items on site to make your day at the beach wonderful (chairs, umbrella, cooler and such). We had two units at locations, parents stayed at this unit – each night, we visited them for the sun set with a glass of wine. Gets no better than that.

You will enjoy this unit and the owner is more the helpful to make the vacation PERFECT.

Thanks Dawn!!!
