Guestbook comments from the manager
All too soon our holiday is coming to an end. We have had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We think Casa Bonita is such a lovely villa.You have given such thought to providing everything one might need for a great holiday. We particularly appreciated the large sun umbrella this year. It provided good shade cover on the beach. This is the third time we have stayed and have many happy memories to take home.

Thanks again for our stay. We hope to return to this delightful area.

Regards

PERFECT FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS

  • 5 out of 5
We (Family of five, 2 adults, three kids (8, 7 and 3 years) spend wonderful 12 days at Casa Bonita.

The house was perfect for us. It was all as described. The owners (Cate and Peter) contacted us before via e-Mail and made sure that - for example - the kid safety screen was built around the pool. This was very importnant for us as the youngest boy cannot swim.

The rooms were fitted out as you would like to have it, kitchen was not new, but all functioning and in good shape. The pool was the perfect "toy" for all of our boys and for us. Lots of fun and with the given pool toys a fantastic "exercise".

Internet, TV, phone, WLAN, all was there. In the garage there were bikes and all what is required for a day at the beach. Some of the things there were broken - therefore not usable -- but this was only a very minor thing and I believe these were left overs from former renters. Anyway, we had all what was needed.

The house was clean and very luxury with regard tp space. The kids space was on one side, the master bedroom on the other. This way we could have some time for us as well, while the kids were playing on their room(s).

We would and will recommend this house to our friends. It is not brand new, but we actually liked this as we were feeling home and not as we would have been in a space that "does not belong to us".

Shopping opportunities are within five minutes by car (Publix, K-Markt etc.).
Outlets for extensive shopping are within 15 minutes and the beaches are within five minutes as well. For dinner all needs (from cheap to expensive) are reachable within 5 to 20 minutes as well, like Outback, IHOP, MCDonalds (kids), Cheesecake Factory, Doc's Beach House etc.

Our next trip to Florida is scheduled for Oct. next year and this house will be on our list to ask, if there is some space available.

Kind regards,
The Hennes Family

SIMPLY THE BEST

  • 5 out of 5
I would recommend this beautiful, well-maintained and conveniently located house to anyone. It has a large southwest-facing lanai and pool, a spacious great room and all the kitchenware needed to cook your own meals. The landlords are delightful, very accommodating and friendly. (They live just a few miles away.) Access to the beach is close. The neighborhood is quiet, offering a pleasant area to walk through. Several good restaurants are within walking distance and spectacularly good ones just a short drive south off Tamiami Trail (US 41). Both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are just a few minutes away by car. We rented this house for two winters, and had such a pleasant experience that we decided we wanted to buy our own house, which we have. We will miss Casa Bonita and our regular contact with the wonderful, knowledgeable owners of this property. For those who like to visit thrift shops, this area is heaven. For those who are serious birders or just like to watch birds, several nature preserves are available; we especially like the Audubon Bird Sanctuary at Corkscrew Swamp, which is about 45 minutes from Casa Bonita. There are also two off-leash dog parks within easy driving distance. A short drive north takes you to Dog Beach, which, as the name implies, is a sheltered cove where dogs can swim and chase balls in shallow waters. Just a bit farther north is Lovers Key, with trails around lagoons and easy access to a gorgeous white-sand beach. You just can't beat this place. Oh, I almost forgot, visitors ought to stop at Royal Scoop for the best ice cream in Florida; you can walk to it too. How great is that?

OUR FAVORITE VACATION!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I hosted a reunion in this and one other house this year and had the time of our lives. Barefoot Beach was so cool with all the gopher tortoises, and we loved exploring southwest florida's wild places so close by. We had two small kids with us and the owners supplied us with every baby and childcare equipment piece imaginable; all immaculately clean and in good repair. The house and pool were absolutely perfect. We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway in sunny Florida.

HONEYMOON STAY

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Casa Bonita was wonderful. It had everything we needed and more for a beach stay..beach chairs, bikes, etc. The beach is close, good restaurants, stores and local attractions. Cate and Peter Goodin were so gracious and made sure we had all the necessities of home. The house was clean and spacious and the pool was awesome! We would recommend this vacation home to anyone wanting to spend their vacation in Florida. There are not enough words to express how great our stay was in Casa Bonita.

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I just vacation here at this home and it was absolutely amazing. There were 8 of us total who stayed and there was tons of room, plenty of sleeping space, and the everyone felt right at home. I highly recommend this home for anyone who is going to this area. We plan to stay again next time we are in the Naples area. All details listed on the site were accurate, property extremely clean, owners called to verify we made it safe, books about the area left in the home helped with extra things to do like our putt putt experience and parasailing was made easy due to the owners helpful books. Loved having the bikes at the house made it easy to run to Publix, grill on the lanai HUGE bonus we ate at home every night. Its a must experience home!

STRESS FREE WEDDING ACCOMODATIONS

  • 5 out of 5
There were six adults attending my son's wedding, and we enjoyed a wonderful week at Casa Bonita, Cate, the owner went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and welcome. The home reflects her perrsonality, warm, friendly,comfortable! Our business dealings were effortless, the directions to get there were flawless, and the home was more than we ever expected. Large rooms, well thought out, plenty of local information,great location,a land-line for emergencies and local calls, and instant wireless internet. There were plenty of towels, bedding, and a huge kitchen that we fully utilized, complete with all needed items you would generally find at home. The light switches were well labeled, the furniture so comfy! It was the best accomodations I have ever enjoyed. The six of us had nice areas to be together in, a large dining table, and plenty of space for the needed alone time. The younger ladies used the bikes often for a trip to the beach, and the whole group enjoyed the umbrellas and chairs many times! Then there was the beautiful pool. It was warm and luxurious and SO CLEAN!!! I think it was a salt-water filter because it did not have that nasty chlorine smell and our suits didn't get ruined. The light in it made it perfect for night swimming, and the temperature was bath-water warm as the evening air cooled. We enjoyed many hours out in the lanai! And I loved being able to go in one of three sliding doors to the right place in the house, especially my master suite which had the best planned bathroom. A huge shower, and double sinks made getting ready for the ceremony a breeze, and with three more women in the other part of the house, our son really appreciated our sharing it! Cate and Peter had everything so well laid out, organized, and in good repair that we experienced only one small glitch. The garbage disposal had a moment, but there was a plunger in the full size garage and the glitch was fixed by my hero, my husband in seconds. We didn't pop any lightbulbs, but there were extras available if needed, and also a supply of food storage containers and wraps in the kitchen drawer. Loved having a washer and dryer also! Casa Bonita was truly a stree-free place to stay and a completely enjoyable experience!

Bonita Shores is a neighborhood near the Gulf of Mexico (and its fabulous beaches) between Naples in the south and Bonita Springs to the east. Sunny and mild weather year-round makes Southwest Florida a holiday paradise. Our guests enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities, many of which are focused on the beach, but other opportunities for nature study are diverse and remarkable. Try birding at Sanibel Island or Corkscrew Audubon Sanctuary, spot alligators at the Big Cypress, or boat through the vast and mysterious Everglades. Peter is a guide/naturalist and if you like he can give you tips on where to go to see wildlife and nature at its best. Recent guests have enjoyed trips in our boat to remote and seldom seen beaches for shelling, walking, swimming and picnicking. Ask Cate or Peter for more information.

Other Activities: Boating, kayaking, birding, nature study

Golf: Naples has earned a reputation of having some of the most sought after golf courses in the World. Naples, Florida, presently boasts over 100 golf courses!
