The quintessential beach house

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure what better endorsement I can give than a repeat stay. For context, I have a family of 5 (+ 1 or 2 grandparents) and have been renting beach houses in the Ft. Myers/Bonita Beach area every summer since 2009. I have NEVER rented the same place twice until now. We stayed in the Coconut Cottage in August last year (see previous review submitted Sept 1, 2015) and returned again this year (July 16 - 23). And, if circumstances allow, we will return yearly from now on! When you find a place like this, you stick with it! It is literally the quintessential beach house. It's right on the Gulf and the views from the dining room and living room can't be beat! Also, the large dining room table (seats 6+) made for great family meals and games. And the partially covered deck off the dining room provides a great vantage point whether you are photographing passing dolphins, watching spectacular sunsets, stargazing, or enjoying the brief afternoon thunderstorms. The separate downstairs allowed us all to stay together but gave my teenage daughter and her grandmother their privacy and a place they could retreat to escape the younger kids and chat. Aside from the tasteful & comfortable furnishings inside, beach lounge chairs, Adirondacks, a hammock, and a great outdoor shower (made from a surfboard!) round out the package! One last thing I feel needs special mention because it is the one thing (imo) that can make or break a vacation: the property manager. Arlan is the best, hands down! Aside from SW Florida, I have rented extensively in Orlando, and Arlan is the best I have ever dealt with. Friendly, helpful, & accommodating, he is always available and never intrusive. Thanks for another great stay & see you next year!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house! Right on the beach, very close to the water, no need to walk far on sand. The house was perfect for my family as first and second floors are like separate units - we were together, yet had our privacy. House had everything you need. Nice upgraded bathrooms. A/C was sufficient for the house and was cooling well. Second floor had class wall overlooking the ocean and wide partially covered balcony - it served us perfect on a rainy day and allowed to watch beautiful sunsets every day. Nice open shady area on the first level - good to park your car and hang out. It had outside shower, which was convenient to keep house free of sand inside. All my family said that house was just perfect!

Lots of thought went into making the Coconut Cottage a special place! Unbelieveable sunsets! Location, location, location! We had perfect weather and felt like we were in a cottage in the Bahamas, definitely on "Island Time". We spent the majority of our time on the deck or with our feet in the sand, which was only steps away.

Comfortable beds were appreciated, since we have found from years of traveling, that is not always the case . We were cooking on the grill one evening and the propane gas tank ran out & what a nice surprise to find a 2nd tank in the laundry room! It is comforting to know the property manager Arlan is only a phone call away, that's why once we locked in our travel dates, I called him first to see what properties he had availasble. Although we didn't have any kids with us, we were in agreement that this would be a perfect rental for those with kids, young & old!

We'll be back!!!

A charming and comfortable beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Coconut cottage is a wonderful vacation home! It's charming, beachy, comfortable, colorful, clean, and has all the amenities you need in a home away from home. The beach and sunset views are literally in the back yard, and the house has a fantastic deck from which to view them. We had several family members and friends visit, and everyone enjoyed Coconut Cottage. Would highly recommend and will plan to return!

Wow, what a great PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

This "Coconut Cottage" Stole our hearts from the moment we walked in. Large family, 7 adults, 6 kids. The place was perfect! The view of the Gulf is breath taking, the sunsets perfect. We have stayed in Bonita many times. This is by far the BEST place ever. Arlan, the property manager is awesome, seeing to even the smallest of details. Met the owner, also a very nice man. The place is VERY well equipped, better than any we have stayed at. Clean, decorated perfect,,,,we could go on, but as you can read, we loved it! We are booking for next year today! The only bad part of the stay, is having to leave...But Lord willing, we will be back next year!

Our family reunion at the Coconut Cottage was spectacular

  • 5 of 5

The Coconut Cottage provided a beach side home for the enjoyment of each of family. It has living room/dining room/ kitchen that gave us a family of 8 room to gather to talk, to play, to eat , or to stretch out and nap. There were several bedrooms that my family with small children could comfortable share each night.

The deck and lower level porch became a gathering point for watching pelicans, dolphins , plus a conversational place as we watched the sunset!

We enjoyed the opportunity to

build sand castles, sun or walk on the beach right from our porches in the front of our house!

All we needed was provided that made my son the chef happy, , my daughter working online through wifi satisfied, , son in law who watched every bowl game satisfied, my play time with granddaughters the best time ever.

We were very happy with our time in the Coconut Cortage!
