The large pool is 12 X 26 and the pool deck is 20 X 40! The pool is completely yours!!!! No one else uses it!

About Donna Andrews
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 173315. In Naples condo by the month 3669521. Thanks!
Donna Andrews purchased this house in 2000
Why Donna Andrews chose Bonita Springs
When the opportunity came up to purchase this property in 2000 I jumped on it! It's my dream to own waterfront and this property is waterfront, waterfront, waterfront. 120' of canal, and 220' of bayfront. Plus it had a huge pool. Really a no brainer and we haven't looked back since!
What makes this house unique
There's so many separate and unique living areas. Say you want to relax with your morning cup of coffee. Do you sit at the large kitchen table and take in the canal and bay views and watch the large flat screen TV? Or do you sit in the separate dining room with bay views and check your email? Or do you relax at the outside deck dining table overlooking the pool, bay and canal? Wait! There's one more. Maybe you take your coffee and enjoy watching the kids in the pool from the poolside dining table. Are you tired from relaxing yet?
