About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bath, sleeps 8

This is a beautiful and very well appointed newer home that we love to visit as much as we can. It is decorated in a more contemporary style than what is typical in the area, yet it is very warm and comfortable. It is a great place for gatherings of family and friends, and has 4 very large and private bedrooms located in the four corners of the house. It is located in a beautifully landscaped newer gated development with other beautiful homes. It is very quiet, with very little traffic on the street.

We love the area and natural setting, which is very serene and beautiful. There is an amazing variety of tropical birds, plants, and aquatic life. and tropical plants. You can explore the river with our canoe or kayak, or just sit on the dock. You can also dock up to 20 ft power boat if you have one (or want to rent one)

There are a lot of great things to do that are close by, including the beaches and parks, kayaking or power boating, fishing, golfing, tennis, shopping, dining

We live in Chicago, but because our trips to Bonita are frequent but too short, we love the convenience of this location. It is 20 minutes from Southwest Florida Airport (RSW) and is less than two hours from Ft. Lauderdale airport (FLL) It is close to the Tamiami Trail (US-41) . Bonita is great too because it is convenient to Naples area as well as Ft Myers (20 min) , Sanibel & Captiva Island (45 min)

Conveniently located halfway between Mercato in North Naples and Coconut Point in Estero. You can walk to the Promenade at Bonita Bay Blvd and US-41. We are also close to Publix, Target, Office Depot, Miromar Outlet Mall, Trader Joes, Walmart, Costco, Sam's Club.

Also many great restaurants within a mile or so from house including Roys, Carabba's, Outback Steak House, IHOP, Silver Spoon Grill, Tequila's, Maria's Mexican, and many many more. You dont have to spend a lot of your valuable free time driving places if you don't want to!
