This private home was recently renovated with granite countertops, new wood kitchen cabinets, new bathroom vanities. This property is a duplex with an upstairs and downstairs unit. The unit pictured here is an upstairs unit, but please inquire about our other rentals.

Enjoy viewing the canal and tropical birds nesting in the mangrove trees. There is a dock if you have a boat. You can navigate up to a 25 foot boat in this canal. If you don't have a boat there is a canoe at the property for you to enjoy exploring the back water canals and viewing the snook and manatee.

There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and a queen size fold out couch. There is tile throughout except for the new carpet in the bedroom.

The yard is very large and next to a vacant lot so you will have lots of privacy if you like to spend time outside. There is a grill so you have plenty of room for a barbecue! The laundry room is very large with extra storage if you'd like to keep your luggage there. Everyone that walks in says ''Agh, we would like to stay here''. I hope you will enjoy it too.

The duplex home is located 1 mile from the beach. Enjoy walking to the beach for breakfast at Docs or sunset cocktails. There are wave runner rentals and parasailing rentals there. On your walk or drive to the beach there are many restaurants, shops and boat rentals for your enjoyment.

Why Sue Gauta chose Bonita Springs

This property is in an excellent location. It is quiet and private on a large lot, yet close to everything. There are limited waterfront properties in Florida and many vacationers enjoy the privacy of being in a home rather than in a condo. If you are traveling and more space is needed please inquire about our other properties.

We pride ourselves on providing a clean and comfortable accommodations.

We arrived early in the evening and found the rental prepared for our stay. The size of the unit was perfect for the two of us as well as for our dogs! The neighborhood is very quiet, and is convient to restaurants and shopping, as well as a jumping point to visiting Fort Myers and Naples FL. The amenities were swell. Having access to a washer and dryer was great. The bed was very comfortable! I especially enjoyed sitting on the screened lanai and watching the fish jump out of the water.

In regards to the interior/outdoor features of this rental, I feel that it is in need of an updating. Perhaps more comfortable seating in the living area and fresh paint colors on the walls! The exterior of the property could use some paint and landscaping as well. A potential GEM in the rough! It was a pleasure renting from Sue and visiting Bonita Springs Florida.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the recommendation on painting. I usually do upkeep on the rental unit during the summer as that is our slower season. I will check into the seating arrangement. I just put a new mattress in the sleeper in the couch so I'm not sure if that affected the comfort of the couch. Thanks again for taking the time for the review.

This was a great vacation place. It was very relaxing,picturesque,and walking distance to the beach. The canal was really a plus. Fishing for dinner with some success. A dolphin pod came to visit and were so close to the dock, I almost could touch them. Didn't use the canoe, but if time allowed it was have been great fun, too. The house itself was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was beautifully redone and perfect for breakfast watching the birds as the sun rose over the canal in the morning. Will go again. Thanks, Sue.

Everything we needed ...

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a comfortable place to stay while visiting for a family wedding. This rental was centrally located for all of our activities and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Sue graciously brought over a sleeping pad for a small child and fixed a lock problem quickly for us. I would recommend this rental - it was fun to watch the ibis parade around every morning!

This is by far exceeded my expectations. It was a little smaller than expected, but perfect for the two of us. It was very clean and convenient to everything we wanted to do. Sue Gauta was awesome and very friendly. We look forward to staying there again in the future! If anyone were to ask for a reference to this rental I would say hands down - STAY HERE!!!

Paradise Rental

  • 5 of 5

My coworkers and I stayed here last year before it was renovated and cannot wait to see it again this year after being refurbished. Another coworker and her kids following us down last year and will also return this year. We found the rental comfortable, clean and convenient. The neighborhood is beautiful and beaches, retail & food shopping, restaurants, churches and activities are within walking distance. However, we had a car and it opened a world of other activities like casinos in Immokalee and Ft. Myers, Everglade Gardens in Bonita Springs, The Naples Zoo and Nature Conservancy, Boat Tours, Mall & Outlet Shopping, and Dog Races in Bonita Springs. Visits to Sanibel, Captiva, Pine and Marco Islands as well as The Everglades, Flea Markets in Bonita, Naples and Ft. Myers, The Edison Museum and The Imaginarium in Ft. Myers were also on our agenda. We visited in the winter and wore shorts and beachwear which was a welcome change from the northern cold and snow. We started each day at the beach and then activities after with dinner & a movie or other entertainment in the evening followed by relaxing and chatting on the lanai overlooking the canal and the Gulf at the end of the block. We could see fish jumping and people fishing along the canal so bring along your pole or rent one at Master Bait Shop a short walk from the rental. The owner was super accommodating and left us brochures for activities in and around the area and even answered our questions about places over the phone a few times. I recommend this rental in a subtropical paradise very highly and cannot wait to return this coming winter.

Can't wait to come back!!!

We thought your place was perfect before!! I cannot believe how gorgeous the pictures look of the place remodeled and we are anxiously awaiting what will be our 4th time there this winter. Our kids constantly tell their friends about their 'winter getaway' and how we head to the beach each morning after breakfast. JD even did a report in his class about the different fish he caught last year right from the backyard!

On a side note, both families that we've suggested your place to were ecstatic. My husband's boss and his wife stayed there last spring and raved...he about the fishing and golf and she about the shopping at the Outlet mall nearby (definitely on my list of things to do this time around). And my in-laws loved how peaceful and relaxing your place is. They'll be back this winter too, but this time want to stay even longer. Agreed with us that it is worlds away from a hotel or even time-share. LOVE our 'home away from home'!!!

This vacation rental is situated on a large private lot overlooking a canal. Enjoy coffee (or wine) on your lanai looking for manatees and viewing the birds in the mangrove trees. It is an easy 1 mile walk to the beach. Wake up and walk to Docs on the beach for breakfast, or walk to one of the several fantastic restaurants within minutes of the house. There's Tuscan Bistro, Gatsby's Pizza, C Level Wine Bar, The Fish House, Randy's Fish House and many more. There are beach chairs provided but if there is anything additional that you would like for the beach just walk across the street to Winds for all sorts of beach supplies. If you would like to try fishing, Master Bait and Tackle is across the street as well. There is a canoe provided for your use. Canoe to the end of the canal to view some of the largest snook you've ever seen.

Barefoot Beach is a gem within minutes of this rental. It is ranked #2 in the country.

http://www.foxnews.com/travel/2014/05/22/top-10-us-beaches-according-to-dr-beach/ You can drive through this community and view the multi-milliion dollar homes. At the end of this community is a public beach with a boardwalk where you will surely view tortoises and all sorts of wildlife. If you would like to rent a motor boat during your visit, there are also many boat rentals on Bonita Beach Road on your way to the beach.

This rental is perfectly situated in the center of Bonita Springs. Explore all that Bonita has to offer - great beaches, the greyhound race track, quaint shops on Old 41, free concerts at Riverside park, and the many great restaurants. The Coconut Point Mall is located 5 minutes north of your rental. This enormous outdoor mall will take you more than a day to see it all. There is also the outlets located one exit North on I75 along with the Germain Arena that offers performances as well as hockey games played by SW Florida's Everblades Hockey Team.

Naples is less than two miles south of where you will be staying. Enjoy the very upscale restaurants and shops at the Mercato and 5th Avenue. Go to Tin City in Naples and take a boat ride to view all of the multi-million dollar homes of Port Royal. During your stay make sure you check out what performances are being offered at the 'Artis' (formerly the Philharmonic). Many stars do performances here while visiting Naples. Also, make sure you don't miss high tea at the Ritz Carlton Beach Club. This is truly a memorable experience. If you are visiting during the Christmas Season with children make sure you don't miss the Willie Wonka event at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club. Mr and Mrs. Dahl (Son and daughter and law of Roald Dahl, author of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) host this fantastic event each year. Also in Naples is the Naples Zoo, Waterpark and Children's museum.
