About Patricia 'Pat' Scott

We endure the hustle and bustle of Boston on a daily basis, but found ourselves visiting SW Florida frequently in search of sun, fun and relaxation. Our Coastal Cottage was the perfect place to get away. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Patricia 'Pat' Scott purchased this house in 2015

Why Patricia 'Pat' Scott chose Bonita Springs

We met a local Realtor who could live anywhere and chose Little Hickory Island on Bonita Beach. Now we are neighbors and he was between the bay and the beach is never boring.

What makes this house unique

We can walk across the street to Bonita Beach and can keep our boat in the back yard. The canal is a great place to fish, paddle board or kayak. The jumping mullet, rolling Tarpon and and looking for Manatees is memorizing. We can walk a half block to Doc's Beach House and Coconut Jack's Waterfront Grill is just around the corner. Getting on and off the island to dozens of restaurants and plenty of shopping is very easy.

Perfect Gathering House

  • 5 of 5

Great house with most of the amenities. Beautiful location to all beaches and adjacent cities. Management company was very good in communicating before our arrival and seeing if everything was ok. Thanks for making our four days enjoyable!

Walk 5 minutes to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Dont worry about parking, you can roll out of a comfortable bed,make coffee, sip it on the patio overlooking the canal. Then, gather the beach towels and cross the road to the Gulf. Lots of room to family, but just as nice for two! We hope to be back next winter.

Beautiful, relaxing and clean

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a our get-away vacation to a wonderfully welcoming home. We felt immediately at home. The bayside view with morning a sunrise was a wonderful start to our day. The beach, a walk across the street to a Shelly sandy beach, the water was refreshing and the Long Beach was great for walking, running or just a casual stroll. Doc's across the street provided for breakfast one day and a late night snack, pizza, another!

We enjoyed the comfort of a clean home as we navigated chilly weather (40). Beach towels and chairs were available as was a gas grill. The owner was attentive to meet our needs throughout our stay. Wonderful experience would recommend this home to others 100%. We were traveling to find a restful place to relax together as a family, after a year of illness with my husband. And we found it! With a thankful heart for having your home ready for us to move right in!

Fantastic home in an incredible location

  • 5 of 5

This is such a special place. The house is very modern and comfortable, including a great screened-in patio in the back overlooking the river. The house is right across the street from the beach also, so it takes 5 mins from the moment you leave until you're settled on the beach. While you could just go to that beach every day, you can take a short drive to a couple other great beaches or a park for kayaking. There are two good restaurants that you can walk to as well - one that is really nice, and one that is casual with pizza where you can rent athletic and water equipment. All in all, we couldn't recommend this place more!
