About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath; Sleeps 5 comfortably. Full size beds in guest suite, not twin

This is our second home and we treat it and maintain it as such. The swimming pool was recently fully-renovated. Our unit has an updated granite/stainless kitchen. High quality, comfortable mattresses. We replaced the twin beds in guest suite with full size beds. The Master bedroom has new carpeting. We also purchased a brand new sofa and new full sized sofa-bed with a brand new, top of the line, memory foam mattress. We recently purchased a new recliner also.Our unit is among the largest in Wild Pines and is a corner unit with a huge wrap around lanai. It is the closest unit to the pool, hot tub, grills and tennis courts. They are literally steps from our elevator. The free shuttle to the private beach (in season) is close by. The beach offers private parking out of season for guests. We provide everything you may need to enjoy your stay. High speed internet, flat screen TV's with HD programming and Netflix as well as a DVD player with a stock of popular movies. Bonita Bay is a premier property in SW Florida. It has beautiful walking and bike paths, parks, marinas and Backwater Jack's Restaurant. Our unit is a short walk from the newly expanded outdoor Promenade Mall with great shopping and dining. Our unit is very clean, quiet and comfortable. We have tried to provide you with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay as our special guests. Go to see what the Bonita Bay community offers. We use this as our vacation home and keep it up as we would our home up north. This is not like some units designed for 'renters' and furnished accordingly. We are much less expensive than a hotel. We allow rentals of as few as 4 days.

About Marilyn Perla and Mark Perla

We are from Western New York and we bought this nice, comfy unit to stay in when the weather gets cold up north, and to rent to others when we can't be down south.

Marilyn Perla and Mark Perla purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marilyn Perla and Mark Perla chose Bonita Bay

BONITA BAY is one of the prettiest locations down here. Miles of trails weave through incredible lush grounds. Parks, boardwalks and biking trails abound. Feel free to borrow the free kayaks and explore our waterways. Or, if you like, take the shuttle to our fabulous, fully stocked private beach club. There is always something to do. It is a perfect location near the Gulf of Mexico and the world class beaches of Ft. Myers and also close to the upscale dining and shopping experiences that Naples provides.

What makes this condo unique

We looked for quite some time to find a condo that was just the right size, clean, updated and nicely furnished. We have comfortable mattresses and as well as a full size sleeper sofa. Open up the sliding doors to the screened lanai, turn on the fans, pour a cocktail and its like being outside in a tropical paradise. Beautiful views of lush foliage and landscaping. Private and quiet, but minutes from theaters, grocery stores, fine dining and anything you wish to enjoy in the Florida sunshine. Unlike some, our condo is updated with new furniture and bedding. Also, ours is among the biggest in Wild Pines and has the best location with the shortest walk to the pool, spa, grills and tennis court. The open air Promenade Mall is within walking distance and features numerous shops, a gourmet market and several dining options. Fish from the Piers and take your catch to the Marina in Bonita Bay to be cleaned, or enjoy a meal at Backwater Jacks our restaurant at the marina. Enjoy the water view!

Great place to stay in Bonita Springs. The private beach was a wonderful amenity!

  • 5 of 5

We visit SW Florida a couple times a year . This is the first time we have stayed in a Bonita Bay property. We loved the condo and the setting. Condo was well equipped and very quiet. We went to the private beach everyday . So nice to have clean restrooms, chairs and umbrellas all set up. Hope to be able to come down again soon! Thank you.

Thank you again,

Bonita Bay Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great condo with comfortable furnishing. Very well supplied. Nicely decorated. Palms all around this second story condo wrap around lanai. Take the elevator or use the steps. The condo complex surrounds an interior landscaped courtyard. Easy to get to from the Bonita Bay entrance. Very convenient to the beaches, grocery store and shopping. Neighborhood swimming pool just steps from condo. Tennis courts nearby. It was nice to have access to the private Bonita Bay beach area near Barefoot Beach. Very quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this place.

A must rent!

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept, clean and fully equipped, with furniture, bare necessities, toiletries, kitchen/ dinner ware and more. Closets stacked with beach items, as in towels, coolers, totes and more. Pool very close to unit and usually empty, very private. Two BBQ grills next to pool and Jacuzzi. Private beach is a plus, umbrellas and chairs for use, picnic tables and very nice staff.

Property owner extremely nice and polite. Will return. Definitely.

Absolutely Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is wonderful, and it feels like home. All the extras details make it feel cozy and inviting. Marilyn was a pleasure to work with, provided detailed instructions, and answered all my questions quickly with patience and kindness. We really enjoyed everything about our stay. The wrap-around porch is awesome and so are the comfortable beds and cozy sheets!

The private beach is just down the street from Barefoot Beach, my intended destination to experience. I did make it to Barefoot Beach one evening (it is great); however, the private beach was more convenient, closer to the beach, well staffed and had chairs and umbrellas for us to use, etc. And it really seems to be the same beach, with shells and beautiful water! Off season is a great time to visit, even if it is a bit warmer. Plenty of parking at condo and private beach. Bonita Bay is such a nice community and convenient to many places. We will be back and hopefully for an entire week next time. I really appreciated the whole experience.

Thank you both for sharing your home with us!
