Guestbook comments from the owner

Left on 02/02/2015 for a stay in February 2015

My mother, my mother-in-law, myself, and my sons ages 3 & 8 stayed for 2 weeks in Febrary. Booking was a breeze, the owners are excellent to work with, the accommodations are exactly as pictured/described and the location is wonderful. It's a 5 minute drive to the beach, the neighborhood is great for walking, there are grocery stores and restaurants very nearby. The house was well equipped from everything you need in the kitchen to towels/linens to bikes and beach supplies.

Head to Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, just minutes away off Bonita Beach Road. This 342-acre county park is an undeveloped barrier island stretching out along Florida’s southwest coast. Stroll along and dig your tootsies into 8200’ of white-sand beach and sand dunes. Barefoot Beach is #2 on the list of The Top 10 Beaches in the USA for good reason! It offers exceptional shelling opportunities and the chance to get up close and personal with a wide variety of wildlife and sea life including dolphins, manatees, shore birds, gopher tortoises, and Loggerhead turtles! We love to watch the pelicans' sky-diving antics.

Most of the shells collected at our house come from Barefoot Beach and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, another dandy beach located about 10 minutes from us. Delnor-Wiggins slides in on The Top 10 Beaches in the USA too. They offer regular guided tours and interpretive programs conducted by their friendly and knowledgeable park-rangers.

Everglades Wonder Gardens on Old Highway 41 is a fun family place to visit. This 80-year old botanical jungle is home to rescued birds and reptiles – it’s about 10 minutes from us.

The location of our house is exceptional – you are within striking distance of boat rentals; jet ski and parasail rentals; fishing charters; dolphin-watching excursions; stand-up paddle boarding; miniature golf; golf; Bonita Springs Riverside Park (they have great events throughout the year – fabulous festivals and concerts); Naples Fort Myers Greyhound Track; Flamingo Island Flea Market; unique boutiques; outdoor farmers’ markets and U-Pick-It farms; upscale secondhand shops; beach bars; gourmet restaurants; live entertainment venues, and more!

Further afield, but still within easy driving distance, enjoy Naples Botanical Gardens (you have to see their gigantic Brazilian lily pads), the Naples Zoo, Freedom Park, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary (wander along the 2 ½ mile boardwalk deep in the heart of Florida’s Everglades – wild, magical, and mystical!) ; Clam Pass Park (ride the tides into their tidal bay area!); Naples Pier (glorious place to watch the sunset) and the swank shops, cafes, and restaurants along Naples famed 5th Avenue!

When you visit here and experience some of the awesome area attractions, you’ll think that you are in Paradise. And you’ll be right!

Amazing stay with my family!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two girls were very fortunate to find this beautiful home on VRBO and have the opportunity to rent it for 8 days. We had such a wonderful time and we're able to relax in the pool and hot tub almost each day and night. The home is amazing and has all you need to make your vacation perfect. There is a great lanai with a gas grill that is covered and makes for the perfect location to have a meal and enjoy yourself. They even have games and puzzles for you to enjoy! The owners are amazing and easy to communicate with and are quick to respond with any questions! Our stay was amazing and we hope to visit again soon. Thank you again to April and Looey for the opportunity to stay in your home. We loved every minute!!

Fun pool and garden!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and the area. We had a great time going to the beach and pool everyday. April was very responsive and provided all the information needed including recommendations on things to do. The home was very clean and spacious for our family. We enjoyed seeing the butterflies in their garden. The only recommendation we had for the owners were to reduce the amount of people coming to the house for maintanence during our stay (i.e. Gardeners, pool, etc). Other than that we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend!

Owner's Response: Carla: We loved having you and your family and we are happy that you enjoyed yourselves. Many thanks for being our wonderful guests and taking such good care of our home. Feel welcome to come again! As we made a special exception for you to rent Friday to Friday instead of our norm Saturday to Saturday, our pool cleaner overlapped your stay instead of the changeover day of Saturday which is normal. But we are glad you enjoyed our crystal clean pool. As we had just planted more Butterfly bushes for our Butterfly gardens we had delayed the upgrading of our sprinkler system until the day you left as they could not get it done before you came in. Hence the reason the gardener was hand watering those freshly planted bushes. Thanks for understanding and aiding in our Monarch butterfly project by releasing a newly emerged Monarch Butterfly. April

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed the days in Bonita Springs. Everything you need is available. Even bikes! It is almost over the top with a private jacuzzi. Biking to Barefoot Beach is easy. The house is in a quiet neighborhood. It was a paradise for us!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa for a week and enjoyed it so much!! It was perfect for our family of four. We used the pool and hot tub each day. The location is perfect...close to everything you need. Being so close to Barefoot Beach was awesome! The outdoor shower was awesome after coming back from the beach. You are just a short drive to so many other things. We did something fun each day and were never stressed about getting to different places. There is so much to do in this area! It was so nice having our own space to come home to each day. We have nothing but good things to say about our stay here. We enjoyed being outside on the covered patio area every evening. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. The whole stay was relaxing and exactly what we needed! Both Looey and April were amazing to work with and so helpful with any questions we had. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your Villa!!

Amazing home in Bonita Shores near Bonita Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this property. We have two boys 8 and 6 and live in California. We were visiting my parents in Bonita. We wanted a comfortable 3 bedroom home near the beach and close to my family. The home is fully equipped with everything you need. The kitchen is spacious, beds super comfortable and the pool, hot tub and patio were highlights for all of us. We spent the bulk of our time relaxing by the pool and BBQ'g. The property owners are extremely friendly, responsive and thorough in their description of the property and all the amenities. We will definitely be booking this again in the future if available! Thank you April and Looey!!
