About Steve Baptiste

Hi everyone. I'm Steve. Welcome to Florida. I was born in Allentown, PA and grew up in South Carolina. After a prolonged enrollment at Clemson University I moved to the sunshine state. I've been down here for 8 years now and have loved every second of it. I put away the finance degree and went self employed and have never looked back.

Steve Baptiste purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Steve Baptiste chose Florida South West

I purchased my first house while a student at Clemson. I have always liked Real Estate. I bought this unit a few years back when it was still in need of much work. It had one thing that I will never forget...character. There are a ton of cookie cutter homes or dime a dozen condos scattering Southwest Florida. Mine is the only place like this!

What makes this cottage unique

Location location location. This place is right where you want to be. A mile to the beach and a block to the river the water is never far away. Be it the vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams that you never see anymore, or the close proximity to everything you need, you can't go wrong.

Just as shown in the pictures and described in the listing!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was absolutely perfect for my needs. It's only a few miles from the beach in one direction and the necessities in the other (grocery stores, etc.). I hope that I am fortunate enough to be able to return some day!

Had a blast

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented the cottage for the weekend. We are strangers to South Florida, but this place made us feel right at home. The house is close to the beach so we were able to spend most of our time in the sand. Owner was very accommodating and easy to deal with. Place was very clean, and everything was exactly as advertised. We had everything we needed and absolutely loved our time here. We will definitely be staying here for our next visit, we really didn't want to leave.

Perfect little beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cottage for 5 days. The location was close to the many beaches that are in the area. It was equipped with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable - beach chairs, cooler, towels and bikes that we rode all over the place to avoid having to park and pay. Very peaceful neighborhood and enjoyed sitting on the screened porch. It also has a washer & dryer which is a bonus when traveling! We would definitely stay here again.

Florida in March

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was very "Floridian" with old Florida charm. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It is located near restaurants and beaches. The owner was very accommodating and made sure we enjoyed our stay.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this charming cottage. Everything we needed to make our visit comfortable was included. We especially enjoyed the close proximity of all we wanted to do on this trip to the cottage as well as having bikes to explore the surrounding area. When looking for a place to stay in Bonita Springs this locale would be well worth your consideration.
