About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom villa with heated pool,, only 3 minutes to the beac

This stylish, cozy villa is located in Bonita Springs, adjacent to Naples, which is in southwest Florida along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. It is about 140 miles south of Tampa, tucked between Fort Myers and Naples, Florida. This bungalow is a lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom vacation rental with a heated pool and high calibre hot tub.

We're located in a really great, safe, family friendly neighbourhood and we are only a 3 minute drive to Barefoot Beach and also close to all amenities.

If you're a beach lover or sunworshipper, Bonita Springs is a great place, with some of the best beaches in the USA mere minutes away! Our villa is a 3 minute drive to Barefoot Beach which is listed as one in ten of the top beaches in the USA. A network of rivers provide exceptional opportunities for kayaking, sea paddle boarding, birding and more! There is a wide array of wonderful restaurants (ranging from casual pizza joints to upscale gourmet restaurants), bars, stores, shopping malls and topnotch medical facilities all at your fingertips.

Experience the city of Naples, our neighbour to the south, where you can enjoy some of this city's treasures and pleasures such as fishing, golfing, boating, tennis, shell collecting, dolphin watching or exploring the beautiful white, natural, sandy beaches.

Our welcoming villa is nestled amongst exotic gardens. We've planted so many fruit trees we have lost track! Learn about Peanut Butter fruit, Passion fruit, Mango, Papaya, Lemon, Lime, Noni, Starfruit, Peach, Mulberry, Banana, Plantain, Edible Hibiscus, Cranberry Hibscus, Moringa, Lemon Grass (great for teas), coconuts, sugar cane and dragonfruit! Or snip some of the herbs from our new herb garden ranging from chives, thyme, sage, savoury, basil, parsley, mint for your favourite barbecuing - varies from season to season. We are carefully nurturing our Monarch butterfly population - and have planted a host of butterfly wbushes so that they can feed and complete their metamorphosis from egg to adult butterfly. We are known in our neighbourhood for our Monarchs - a treat for both children and adults to behold! Our covered lanai enables guests to dine on the terrace surrounded by lush greenery and flowers at any time of the day or evening, listening to and viewing the array of birdlife in the gardens.

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.

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!!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

This home we stayed in for our vacation is one of the best places we have ever experienced. Looey and April were there for any questions we had,very prompt and just made us feel right at home.The house is amazing, beautiful kitchen,beautiful bedrooms perfect amount of space,great pool,best jacuzzi,and as my son would say" The awesomest TV he has ever watched" An apple tv.,we also went to the beach which was only a few minutes away, stores right around the corner for shopping or dining out, very convenient as for Us adults the scenery when your sitting in the lanai is probably our favorite. Butterflies everywhere, fruit trees,very private so you can enjoy your family and just relax like you've never relaxed in your life. I will defiantly love to come back again. Thank you April and Looey

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!
