About Amy Galbraith
John and I have grown to love Bonita Bay Resort over the years when visiting family that lived in Lost Lake. We have been vacationing in Bonita Springs and Naples for years and know the area well. We have 3 children, twin girls ages 23, a son age 19 and a dog named Daisy. John owns an advertising agency called Twin Advertising, named after the girls. I am a former teacher keeping very busy selling Real Estate. We love to stay active, running, biking, swimming, skiing, and yoga. We are thrilled to share our special place with you and hope that you will enjoy it as much as us and choose to return again. We appreciate feedback of any kind on your stay.

Why Amy Galbraith chose Bonita Bay
We chose Bonita Bay after years of visiting family that also live in Bonita Bay. The property is so beautiful and and well maintained. The trails, marina and private beach were too wonderful to pass up. We are happy to share the experience with others and frequent it ourselves to visit family and get away from the snow in upstate New York.

The condo was well located and adequately furnished, and everything was in good repair. The kitchen was well-equipped compared to other rental condos I've seen, though we did have to buy a couple fry pans because the ones on site had round bottoms -- probably the result of renter abuse. The cooktop gets hot in a hurry. Really nice view, we enjoyed watching all the birds. The location is great -- close to the gate and right across from a couple markets - and the condo comes with a binder filled with menus, attractions, Bonita Bay info, and maps of the development.
This rental is fairly expensive. We met other people who were more experienced in renting in this development and area, and they were getting better places for noticeably less. They often rented year after year from the same owners and knew how to do it., having built a trusting and mutually agreeable arrangement. Through VRBO you don't get that. However, it's hard to look for a deal until you're down there.
Christmas Holiday at Wild Pines
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Wild Pines over the Christmas holiday. Here are our impressions:
Condo is in a great location with easy access to pool, tennis, shopping
Wild Dunes offers many amenities - great jogging trail with fitness stations, pickle ball, etc.
Condo is clean for the most part and well stocked for cooking (pans, dishes, etc.)
Master bedroom mattress very comfortable
Lovely view of the water
Cons: (Some of these are outside the homeowners control)
The railing on the lanai was dirty (outside the screens) so that disturbed the view of the water.
We were disappointed TV cable didn't work so couldn't watch ESPN
The second bedroom is small and rather dark, fan was a bit noisy.
We were disappointed the Hot Tub at the pool was not working while we were there
Great Location with Great Amenities
This is an ideal location in a beautiful, upscale neighbourhood. Beach is immaculate and perfect for shell seekers. The manicured grounds provide the perfect backdrop for walks and bike rides. The condo is very well equipped and has all the amenities you could ask for. The owner, Amy, was great at getting back to us when we had questions. Whether it was the Bonita Bay Club Christmas Party, the Fort Myers Sandcastle Competition, a Taste of Bonita Springs, to visiting historical Fort Myers downtown.....we did it all. Conveniently located to Interstate 75, we had a fabulous six weeks in paradise!!
Beautiful, Quiet and Relaxing
My husband and I came to Florida not on a vacation but to work. Hurricane Irma made a mess of things and my husband was there as an Insurance Adjuster to get homeowners money to repair their damages to their home. We were told about renting a condo by one of my husbands co-workers. Never knew they did such a thing and we're glad we did. Spite of all the mess Hurricane Irma did to the grounds of Bonita Bay, it is still a beautiful place to stay. I did a lot of walking which was just beautiful to explore. Its a gated community so you don't have to worry about trouble. This condo over looked a gorgeous pond. Its a very quiet area so a lot of R&R you could get. The one major complaint I have about this condo, the bed in the master bedroom was very uncomfortable...hard mattress. The Lanai was a mess from the Hurricane and I wished it would have been cleaned up before we got there but hey, it's better then a hotel and i dealt with it. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook with, didn't have much for spices which would have been nice. There is more then enough towels and beach towels provided. If we happen to come down here again, I would definitely come back to this condo. We loved it!
Don't forget about shopping...There is a lot of stores and restaurants around the area and you're so close to Fort Myers and Naples, which is an added bonus.
Wonderful Stay at Wild Pines
This was our first stay at Bonita Bay Resort and we fell in love with the area. The resort complex was beautiful, relaxing and well maintained. We enjoyed the nice warm pool and tennis courts daily and the beach shuttle was a real plus.
We loved the condo which was clean, spacious and well stocked with everything from beach towel, tennis rackets and more. Amy was wonderful to deal with always responded to my emails and questions.
We enjoyed all our evening meals on the large lani overlooking the lake and even got some alligator entertainment on a few days.
We certainly recommend this condo and hope to return ourselves.
My only complaint was having to drop off the keys at an other location. Maybe a lock box would help this situation.
