Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at CB Royale Dec. 2017 through Jan., 2018. The condo has a great view of the bay, and it’s just a short walk across the street to the gulf. The owner provided timely responses to our inquiries. Highly recommended!

Great relaxing condo.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Shae's condo. The beach is just across the road, a 2 minute walk and, the condo has beach chairs, umbrella and cooler for your use. The condo has everything you need for our 30 day stay. The condo is on a quiet road and is minutes away from shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay at the condo again if it fits in with our future plans. Thanks again Shae for the use of your comfortable condo.

Hickory condo Casa Bonita

  • 5 of 5

Great condo! Location was amazing with the beach just across a very quiet road and the waterway out the back. Spent many hours relaxing and watching the dolphins. The condo is equipped with everything you need and is in excellent condition. The month we spent there was not long enough. Would definitely like to return.

We enjoyed our second visit even more than last year and plan on returning next year.

We had a very relaxing vacation and enjoyed the beach and great weather every day.

All of our neighbors in the other condo units were extremely friendly. Cooking on the outside grille by the pool was a great way to socialize and meet new friends.

The location is perfect for nearby restaurants.

This very nice condo is in a great location. Just a short walk across the street for the beach and wonderful sunsets. Many restaurants and shopping are nearby. We especially enjoyed the activities on the bay which we could watch from the lanai.

Plan to return next year.

Lovely beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our six week stay! Love the keyless entry, master bath/bedroom was spacious, location across from beach was ideal. Screened in balcony was great to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. Very comfortable for two people and short term guests in second bedroom. The beach chairs and umbrella provided are very nice quality. Owner was very easy to work with. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your lovely condo, hope to return next year!

About Shae Rohling

Christmas Boat Parade! We love the Bonita Springs - FMB area. After traveling the caribbean and owning multiple vacation properties in Isla Mujeres Mexico we decided Bonita Springs Florida is perfect for our retirement. Until that day we are will to share. Be our guests!

Shae Rohling purchased this condo in 2015

Why Shae Rohling chose Bonita Springs

This small resort has only 40 units, leaving lots of space at the pool and marina. Fabulous seafood and restaurants close to shopping, nightlife and the airport. Private deeded beach access just steps away clinched the deal. We could not pass up this newly remodeled, luxury condo. The neighbors are midwestern friendly. Close to Estero Blvd. but off the beaten path. The best part of this location is location! You will save hours of your vacation time eluding the traffic jams north of us in Fort Myers Beach!

What makes this condo unique

The VIEWS!!! It is a special feeling to relax and enjoy our private lanai from the master bedroom or living areas. Comfortable luxury! Perfect combination of bay and gulf activities within steps! Nothing beats an afternoon boat ride on the Inland Waterway. Our favorite restaurant Big Hickory Seafood Grill is < 2 blocks walk. Mediterra private beach club if you want more exclusivity. The other big plus to LIttle Hickory is the location as regards traffic. High season can be slow during rush hour, but we always have it better than Fort Myers Beach because of our proximity to 41 and 75 highways.

+ covered parking Less traffic in Bonita than Naples or FMB!! location, location, location!
