Why Amanda Carey chose Florida South West

We loved the quiet location and the fabulous views from this home. It's convenient to everything and has it all!

What makes this condo unique

When we bought it we knew that we would love to stay here. It's not our home, we run it as a business, but we feel it is very important to only buy a place you would be happy to live in and this place is a perfect get away.

A great Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented here for two months while we were looking for, choosing and closing on property in Naples. Everything about this apartment is superb. The living/dining room area is spacious, the kitchen is very well equipped and the bedrooms and baths are clean and comfortable. Its location is very close to Barefoot Beach and numerous restaurants are within easy reach. Right down the street is a Publix supermarket as well as a Pak n Ship mail drop store if you need one. Amanda is always in touch with you to make sure all is going well, and there is a downstairs storage room in which you can place bicycles instead of bringing them upstairs. There is also a well equipped fitness room on the same floor as the apartment. The sunset views are spectacular and it is a great neighborhood in which to walk for exercise. I recommend this apartment and the owner to anyone who is looking for a short or longer term rental. Enjoy.

We were looking for a vacation retreat with water view, within walking distance to restaurants and short drives to shops. We got what we looked for with a few extras. The property was clean and well maintained. We met friendly neighbours, attended several of their weekly parties by the pool, used the building's fitness center throughout our stay, and developed a great friendship with Amanda, the owner, who has been most helpful in providing us with local information on nearby activities and attractions. We would highly recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

Bayview Reyreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I stayed in Bayview Retreat for the month of march,2011. we were very pleased with the

condo.--- it was spacious,clean,comfortable,and very nicely equipped and furnished. The lanai overlooks

the pool & the harbor making a lovely & restful setting. we particularly enjoyed lounging by the pool amid

the beautiful landscaping. The location is quiet yet there are a number of good restarants nearby.

Amanda is a pleasure to work with. We had such a good time that we've already booked for March 2012!

My wife & I stayed at the Bayview Retreat in February, 2009. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Hickory Harbor is located in a quiet residential area

with easy access to grocery stores, restaurants and

other services. There are many and varied places to

walk and ride bikes. I brought my kayak and used it

almost every day to fish and look for dolphins and

other wildlife. The condo is very livable with an

adequate kitchen, nice living area and wonderful lanai that views the sunset each evening. Features

like covered parking, a large storage area, and wireless internet made this an ideal place for us to

stay. The people at Hickory Harbor are very friendly

and have a weekly gathering to meet and talk.

Overall, we were very satisfied and would not

hesitate to return.

My wife and I have just spent the whole month of November 2008 at Bayview Retreat. We have nothing but praise for this Condo and it's lacation. The sunsets from the lani is something to die for, no need to go to the beach to see them, just pour a glass of wine and watch the sun go down. Loads and loads of good resturants available very close to the Condo. The Gulf beaches are very close also I should point out that Amanda supplied a beach parking permit, which in it's self is worth having, one can go to any beach south, and including Bonita beach free of charge. Very nice and friendly residents. All in all a very nice place to spend a relaxing vacation.

My wife and I have stayed in all of Amanda's Bonita Springs properties including the Bayview Retreat during March of '07. We have always enjoyed our stays and we continue to return.

The description on the website is accurate and the condo is fully equiped with everything needed for a great relaxing vacation. The kitchen has new appliances and all furnishings are clean and modern. The pool area set up well with much space and many lounges private. The neighborhood is very convenient to shopping, beaches and entertainment; it is also well kept, quiet and safe.

Sun set viewing from the balcony is outstanding.

If you are considering a vacation at this property, you will not be disappointed.

We're in a great location, 1 mile to the best beach, 14 miles south to Olde Naples, 7 mile north to Coconut Point Mall, 6 miles south to Mercato. 15 miles north to Miromar Outlet Mall. 8 miles south to Waterside shops. We have great shopping and dining, but the nature is wonderful too.

Barefoot Beach is a state park and has a lot of activities and almost each time we go we see dolphins and occasionally manatees.

Koreshan State Park, a historical place very interesting to walk around. We like to walk our dogs here too.

Corkscrew Swamp, a lovely 2 mile board walk, one day we'll make it there once a month, its ever changing and a wonder ful place to see nature.

Babcock ranch is a guided tour around an old cattle ranch in a swamp buggy, we always take our guests there, a lovely insight to old Florida.

Ted Smallwoods store down in Chocaloscee near Everglades City.

Doggy Beach, a paradise for dogs and a great place to see birds like Roseate Spoonbills.
