Why Sue Gauta chose Bonita Shores
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 clean and comfortable accommodations.

Minimum age of primary renter:25
All other house info such as wifi and garbage is posted on the refrigerator.

February 15th through March 2 stay
Sue, we had a great time. The location of the property was great with just about everything one would need within walking distance. We enjoyed to use on the canoe .
Just a couple of small things we had already discussed.
1. Missing a room key on one of the key rings.
2. Cabinet doors need adjusting. I tried to adjust some but missing screws.
3.Sliding door handle loose.
None of these things were show stoppers and we enjoyed our stay.
P.S. The Legion makes great drinks!
P.P.S. We kept the unit clean and wondered about the pet deposit refund?
Arnie and Doris Mead
Hi Arnie and Doris, It was a pleasure to have you. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. When you left I went over to address those things immediately. There was another set of keys in the discussed location, just handing on another nail. Sorry, you missed them. I was trying to figure out what you meant regarding the cabinets needing adjustment. The handle on the sliding door moved a slight amount and I'll have the handyman look at that.
Per the instruction on the website your security deposit will automatically be refuned within 10 days of your departure if everything is left in normal condition - which it was.
We strive for 5 stars from every guest. Your oerfect vacation is our goal.
Cute place, clean, nicely decorated. Located between Ft Myers and Naples, lots of beaches and state parks to explore. Owner very responsive and helpful. We would rent from her again.
Thank you Sue! I'm glad you liked the place. You were a great guest and welcome back anytime.
Not as expected
OK BUT NOT AS NICE AS EXPECTED KITCHEN NOT WELL EQUIPED SLIDING DOOR NEED REPAIR AND BLINDS FOR SLIDING DOORS NEED TO BE REPLACED
Hi Dale, I am so sorry that you were not completely thrilled with your accommodations. Please let me know what you could have in the kitchen that would make it better equipped. I will be stopping over tomorrow and will take a look at the sliding glass doors and blinds. Because of the humidity sometimes the doors get a little sticky and need some silicone. Thank you so much for your feedback. Have a happy New Year!
Our 2nd home
We’ve stayed here several times. It’s actually become a 2nd home to us and our dog. Always clean, has most everything you need, and within striking distance of any activity you may want to do. Sue is awesome too.
Thanks Vicki and Jay, I love when you and your pup visit. You're like old friends.
Enjoy the holidays!
Great accomodations. Communication with homeowner was outstanding.! Recently renovated and very well done.
I'm so happy you were happy with the home. Please know we would love to have you back anytime.
Love this place!
We have stayed here a few times before. We love the location and the water access. Since our last stay in 2017, Sue has done some lovely updates to the downstairs unit. The bed is super comfy too. Sue is awesome as well. Always enjoy working with her. I’d highly recommend staying here, if you are considering it.
Vicki and Jay, Once again it was a pleasure to have you stay. I'm glad you liked the updates and I'm looking forward to hosting you again!
