Great place for family!

Very comfortable, clean and well maintained home. Kids stayed in pool and spa all day long. We had a little problem with spa but the owners took care of it. Hope to go back there next year!

Thank you

wonderful stay at a beautiful and clean home

  • 5 of 5

I have been meaning to write a review about this beautiful home in Bonita Spring for a while now. We stayed here for the month of April 2014 with our family. We spend at least one month every year in Bonita Springs and this was by far our best experience. The owners are kind, honest and extremely accommodating. The layout of this home works well for either a young family or an extended family traveling together. Three of the four bedrooms (including one of the master suites) are clustered together. If one adult couple is after some privacy the fourth bedroom (and second master suite) is across the home. The pool is larger in person that it appears in the pictures and the views are lovely. It is furnished nicely and we found the location extremely convenient. We spent most of our time enjoying the warm weather outdoors. We very much appreciated how clean and well taken care of this home was. We would have rented from this lovely couple again the following year but they were already booked for the month we were playing our trip. I would highly recommend booking this home if you are looking for a relaxed trip.

Perfectly Located, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first trip to SW Florida and we loved it! David and Christine's house was very clean. The four bedrooms accommodated my wife and I, our 3 kids, her parents and a close couple of ours. The layout of the house was awesome as you could see the kids swimming in the pool from most every room of the house. The lanai was our favorite spot to spend the evenings relaxing along with late evening swimming. Their home is located central to most all attractions SW Florida has to offer. During our stay, we visited Ft. Myers Beach, Barefoot Beach and Sanibel Island and they were all a very short distance from the home. I recommend parasailing and renting a wave runner while at Ft. Myers Beach. They were both a blast. Myself and the other 2 men chartered a fishing boat and enjoyed catching several species of fish including a 200+ lb. Goliath Grouper! We made the drive north to Clearwater and visited the Clearwater Marine Aquarium which houses the dolphin stars Winter and Hope from the movie Dolphin Tale. The canal behind the house is very neat. I enjoyed using their kayaks to view the homes lining the Imperial River. It was a very quiet neighborhood and all neighbors we met were very kind. It was convenient being able to call or text Christine with any questions we had with the house. I can't explain just how much this trip allowed my family to RELAX and spending our evenings at this home made that possible. We were extremely happy with our stay and have already started planning our trip next spring/summer. We plan on staying at this home again. Enjoy!

Great Locatoin -- Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

Christine and David have a beautiful home. We've been to Bonita Bay before, staying with my sister, but we were travelling with my in-laws this trip, so wanted to find a home where they could be comfortable. We all had a blast -- kayaking (rentals) in the canal, swimming, cycling, running, ballroom dancing, shopping, beach, etc. The house was fantastic. We often ate in, enjoying the pool, lanai, and hot tub. The main master was secluded so a nice way to escape for a bit. We'd stay her again in a second.

Great home in Bonita Spring

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely home in Bonita Springs. The property is located in a beautiful, quiet area. The home is beautifully decorated, with high-quality, comfortable furniture. We all enjoyed the layout of the house it gave a lot of privacy to everybody, but the pool area takes the prize. We enjoyed our days in the pool area. We were very impressed with the home, and will definitely recommend it to our family and friends when they visit the area.

During our vacation we took an Everglades airboat trip, which was great, and visited the Naples and

Ft. Meyers areas, which have a lot to offer.

We are thrilled to have found this beautiful home and hope to rent it again in the future. The owners Christine and Davis are easy to reach and deal with, and we want to thank them again for the wonderful vacation that we spent in their home.

This is the 2nd time we have rented a holiday vacation home from Christine and David. Once again we were not disappointed. The house is located on The Imperial River and has a private boat dock at the end of the garden. It is the perfect spot to sit with a G&T in the evenings watching the jumping fish! The house is beautiful and the furnishings of a high standard. The pool and spa are solar heated and a perfect temperature. This is where we spent the majority of our time when we weren't out an about. Location wise, this property was perfectly located for us in Bonita Springs. Our favourite restaurants: Roys, Bonefish and The Fish House are so close. For the shoppers, Coconut Point shopping mall is about 5 mins away and Miromar Outlet is only 10 minutes. The beaches are a very short drive, or there are bikes in the garage which I understand you can use to cycle there. (We were too lazy!). Overall we cannot fault the house. Perfect for us on all accounts. Thank you again Christine and David.
