Wonderful beach rental in perfect walkable location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at Bonita Sol and Bonita Agua. We rented both units and loved having the house, deck and pool to ourselves. The units are both nicely updated and clean, with everything we needed, plus little touches to make them feel like home. It was like staying at our own family beach house.

We’re SW FL locals and have been spending off-season weekends at FMB for years. We usually stay farther down the island at beach-front hotels; which are great for long days at the beach, but not as convenient for access to restaurants and entertainment. This trip we decided to stay closer to Times Square, so we could walk to restaurants and shops, and enjoy the nightlife without having to deal with driving and parking. And for that, this rental location was perfect!

The house is just a couple of blocks from the heart of Times Square and the main public beach, with great restaurants and shops between. With various ages/activity levels in my family (10 years old to retirement age), being so close to the attractions allowed us all to do our own thing and then meetup easily throughout the day/night.

And I can’t say enough about the pool and back patio. The owners have done a great job of making the back yard a little private oasis, with lovely plantings, colored pool light and a fun mural on the back wall. It was so nice back there, that we ended up spending more time hanging around the pool than at the actual beach. The comfortable tables and chairs, chaise lounges and awnings allowed us to really enjoy the pool area at all times of the day/night.

We will definitely be back to Bonita Sol and Bonita Agua, and highly recommend this rental to others looking for more than just the beach. With this rental you get all the options, with everything conveniently close, you can do as much, or as little, as desired.

Quaint, clean and comfortable in a perfect location! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, the pool was a little chilly- I don’t think it’s heated, but overall we loved the condo! It’s small, and cozy- well kept and clean! We were just steps from Times Square! We would definitely stay here again!

Great location and pet friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our month long stay at "Sol". The unit is clean and modern with almost everything you need for an extended stay. The owner is hands on and is readily accessible if needed. You are five minutes away from restaurants, beach and farmer's market. Of course the downside to being so close is that you are five minutes away from four different ice cream stores. You are in a very friendly neighborhood and it is easy to meet other visitors and residents in the residential setting. The best evaluation I can give is that on the last day of our stay we paid our deposit for next year.
