Hello everyone! That's me several years ago in Hawaii.

Born in CN, raised in N.E. Georgia, lived in England, high school in New Jersey, college years in MA. After college I lived in Europe, Key West and Naples FL. Then moved to Hawaii. Aging parents in Florida drew me back to this great state where I continued in the housing business. This is the only house I have left after having sold the rest recently. So StarBay gets my full attention and every decorating idea I come across! Please see my other Homeaway listings. In Bonita 211374. In Naples golf course condo by the month 3669521

Donna Andrews purchased this house in 2000

Who doesn't enjoy a home DIRECTLY on the water with fabulous views and located next to 6 miles of pristine white beach . This was a dream of mine. WATERFRONT, WATERFRONT, WATERFFRONT. 220 feet of bay, 110 feet of canal frontage. So when I found this gem it was a dream come true!

It's very unusual to find a property with all these great benefits. Most water properties look across a canal into some's living room. You have to keep your curtains closed when you stay there! But off the deck and patio below are UNOBSTRUCTED views of water, mangrove,wildlife and sky! A world away- And yet walk to restaurants, cafes... Short drive to unlimited entertainment, shopping... The property itself has every amenity and a 'feel good' atmosphere.

FANTASTIC LOCATION AND VIEWS OVER THE WATER

  • 5 out of 5
Renting this property was a delight. The owners were a pleasure to deal with from our initial enquiries right through to making sure our stay was perfect. They made the whole booking process easy for us. The property is in a quiet location but has all you need on your doorstep. The local Publix store is really close and has a great bakery. Each day we had breakfast out on the deck and couldn’t wait to get back ‘home’ to the deck to watch the sunset.
The apartment is cosy, clean and comfortable and has all the facilities you need. The bed was restful and the shower room is recently renovated so is really lovely and the view from the shower is a delight first thing in the morning.
All in all renting this property left us with many happy memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback! My 3 rentals are my ONLY BUSINESS. I am not a 'rental manager' where you are just a number- one of the hundreds. Or an owner who works a full time job and handles rentals after work or on weekends. I try to stay in the background during your stay- unless you need me. But I only live 20 minutes away- so if you do need me- no worries! When guests are happy- I AM HAPPY!!!

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful little place to stay! My husband and I were looking for a little relaxation for our long weekend and we found exactly what we needed in this very comfy & clean apartment. We felt so at home there, that we almost forgot we were on vacation. Everything looks exactly as it does in the photos on this website and we highly recommend this unit for anyone needing to get away and just relax. There are a few beaches nearby within walking or bicycle riding distance which were very nice and clean. The Fish House Restaurant and Doc's on the Beach both have a nice menu selection and great tasting food. Seven Eleven is a block away and you can catch the bus right on the corner of the intersection if you are wanting to go farther and do not have a car (which is what we did). On our last day we even rented a pontoon boat from Bonita Boat Rentals on Estero Bay for the day and cruised the bay to Lover's Key Beach, which is a very beautiful area where we even got to see dolphins playing in the water. Thank you so much Mo and Donna for making it a vacation to remember and we will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: And I love what her husband said to me when I asked him if he found everything ok. He said - beyond ok. It was not like renting an apartment- it was as if it was his "second home". That is a great way to express exactly the feeling I was hoping to create!

FICHU

  • 5 out of 5
I normally travel to Florida for a week each year around this time and stay in a standard hotel. This year, I refused to eat 9 consecutive days of restaurant food so rented this unit. It was immaculately clean everywhere you look. I took my shoes off the minute I came in. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable and I do not normally say that about any hotel or home. The bath and kitchen were small but perfectly acceptable with everything one could possibly need. Was it elegant? No. Was it wonderful? Yes. I even had a couple of bad health days and stayed home and I was so at ease and so enjoyed the deck and view I almost stayed sick. I began to think of the cormorant who came to sit on the stick in front of the deck as MY cormorant. It is very easy to find, convenient to good restaurants, groceries, and attractions. I will certainly look for this unit again when I come back. The owners, by the way, could not be more helpful. They were friendly and gave great advice. I would recommend it to anyone who can live without a concierge and fake silk drapes and who doesn't want to go there on my week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! I'm so glad you mentioned 'not elegant'. I,personally, feel a bit ill at ease in a pretentious and formal home. So my intention is to create an informal, casual, comfortable 'Florida Fun' type of environment. Looks like I succeeded by your adjective 'Wonderful'! And perfect timing on the 'small' bathroom comment. It's actually standard bathroom size. But when the former owners had it they put in an over sized linen cabinet which makes it feel a bit crowded. This fall the bathroom is scheduled to be completely remodeled. YOUR cormorant (it's a diving water bird- so fun to watch) is perched on the branch waiting for your return visit!

THE PERFECT PLACE!!

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful place!! My husband and I have always stayed in hotels for vacations, but we thought we would try a rental property this trip. We had never stayed at a rental property before, so I was apprehensive, but this apartment was wonderful! The photos and description posted for this rental are accurate. The apartment was clean, well maintained, and decorated nicely, in a quiet neighborhood, and much more room than a hotel room! The apartment is connected to another rental and I was worried about noise and sharing facilities. I had nothing to worry about. We met the other renters, but we never heard them during our stay. Privacy is maintained with separate parking spaces, entries and landscaping. The apartment provides for all your basic needs. We loved being able to cook our own meals, eat out on the deck and enjoy the water view. Having the beach so close by was a plus, and Mo and Donna provide everything you need to have fun in the sun: beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, bicycles, canoe and a paddle boat!! My husband enjoyed taking the canoe out on the water. There were plenty of restaurants and shopping near by. We stayed in the middle of April and the temperature was 85 degrees daily and low humidity. Mo and Donna responded promptly to our emails and phone calls. Definitely would recommend this rental and plan on returning in the future. I think our hotel days are over!! Thank you Mo and Donna for making our 25th wedding anniversary trip such a wonderful one!

Owner's Response: Once again I truly appreciate the time and effort it takes to post a review. The last couple that stayed said they felt "spoiled" staying there. That's exactly the environment I strive to create. When I travel and stay in a vacation rental that is the feeling I'd like to have so I put myself in the traveler's shoes.

STARBAY IS FABULOUS!

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is immaculate, well equipped and wonderfully decorated. The view from the deck or patio is super! The location is very convenient, only a couple minutes to the beach, groceries and retail shopping. Mo was so helpful with my last minute reservation. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer...MUCH longer!

WONDERFUL TIME!

  • 5 out of 5
Thanks so much Mo and Donna for sharing your treasure! All of the earlier reviews are spot on...it is a clean cozy place with a super bay view! I loved the deck for morning heron watching (one liked the tree 20 feet from the deck at the waters edge) & for a glass of wine watching the beautiful sunset.

The location was terrific...a 2 minute drive straight to the beach, 25 minutes to downtown Naples and the airport. Also a 3 minute walk to the Fish House restaurant which you can see from the home (daily 3-6pm happy hours w/ $5 half pound peel and eat shrimp & $6 dozen oysters....yum!).

Donna and Mo were so helpful with our changing dates and very quick to respond to every request.

We will be back soon...your place is a gem.

Owner's Response: This review pretty much has that casual Florida Keys feel I think we are going for in presenting this property as a cheerful and fun vacation spot. When traveling, I too want to soak up the atmosphere of the location by having spectacular scenery , privacy, and appropriate decor to the geography. Our place looks tropical and individualistic, it is not cookie-cutter quality. My sister and I spare no effort in attending to the details that hopefully create a unique and memorable vacation. If you want to research more reviews to have confidence in us before making your rental decision, please check out our other listing # 211374 on HomeAway or #828422 on HomeAwayUK. You will see that my sister and I put our hearts into our business here at StarBay. With deepest appreciation to our honored guests, MO Andrews, Andrews Sisters

Only minutes to Wiggins Pass State Park, Lovers Key State Park, Barefoot Beach, Bonita Beach, and Ft. Myers Beach. 5 miles to new huge Coconut Point Shopping Center full of fabulous eateries and stores, like Gulf Coast Center just a little further.

Located at the end of the street the property is on a point or peninsula. The building is surrounded by salt water. Little Hickory Bay is in front with expansive bay and mangrove views facing west for great sunsets from your decks and all rooms except for one quest bedroom. Wide canal is on side with the 90' dock for fishing. Approx.1 mile to beach.

Other Activities: Rent on beach- jet skis, paddle boats, sail boats, paddle boards..or parasail. Rent in the bay- pontoon boats. Close by dine-in movies,walk to miniture golf, or walk to yoga classes at 2 different locations! Walk to bait shop for your fishing license by the week and rent equipment there to catch your dinner. Walk to the 7-11 convenience store for morning newpaper or that last minute botlle of wine. Convenient YET quiet and away from it all!

I really enjoy driving north along the beach and inlets thru Lover's Key State Park, thru Ft Myers Beach onto the causeway taking you to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Then stopping for lunch at the famous 'Bubble Room' a step back into childhood.

Traveling south- I love to stroll 5th Avenue in Naples of late European style outdoor dining and visit the galleries and then Naples Pier.

Golf: These are just some of the Public Courses in the Area. South West Florida- Golf Capital of the World! Many of the courses below are within 3 miles of your vacation rental.

Golfing guests from the U.S. and Europe have great results from using the websites- for discounted tee times and coupons. is also helpful for the courses web sites and driving directions.And I can email you a long list upon request.

Guests can catch fish from the land and dock. Some types available are:Pampano,snappers, whiting, sheephead, snook, small grouper, ladyfish...

I can email you a list of boat, kayak and bike rentals in the area.

Twins and Red Socks spring training just a short half hour trip north!
