Welcome to many Happy Ours! View from Hickory Blvd New vacation rental property, refurbished beach bungalow. Paradise!
Donna purchased this house in 2009
Awesome location and beautiful lot.
Private paradise, yet amongst it all.
This place really was awesome. (word overused but it fits here) Direct beachfront with a wonderful view and full beach back yard, yet still private. The cottage/house was everything you need. Clean and bright, well equiped with all the amenities. Donna was so friendly and easy to deal with. She replied to any requests and questions, almost immediately. We arrived to a lovely greeting basket. My husband never missed a pool, our weather was great and we were able to swim in the ocean. When we arrived, I wondered if the restaurant next door would be noisy or intrusive, it was not. We really heard no noise from it. Easy walk to a number of local restaurants. We had a wonderful time here and we hope to return with some of our family. :)
So many positives about this beach rental. To begin with, Donna is so good to book with. For many years, we have rented vacation properties and I have not worked with anyone easier to work with. Welcome treats, including for our little dog, were just so thoughtful!
Relative to the house: Appreciate the large screen television. Can never figure why some owners expect renters to watch small televisions. The house is small, but has a good amount of storage and we did not feel cramped. We didn't cook the week we were at the house, but the kitchen is well stocked if you prefer to eat in. The lanai is perfection - air-conditioned with a direct view of the ocean. We enjoyed the birds tremendously and a dolphin swam back and forth in front of the property one morning. The outdoor shower is nice and actually has warm water - many beach rentals only provide cold water for outdoor showers. The house is clean, which is very important to us.
Outdoor space: This has the best outdoor space of any beach rental we have stayed at. The back has large trees providing filtered sunlight. The hammock is perfect for napping, the chaise lounges perfect for reading, and the Adirondack chairs perfect for gazing at the ocean. This property has plenty of space to walk your dog. Private.
Our favorite restaurants in Bonita Springs: DeRomo's (Italian) and Smokin R's (barbeque food truck). Also, Doc's next door to Happy Ours does a decent burger. Although the restaurant Skillets has mostly good reviews, we thought our one breakfast there was very bad.
If you are not familiar with the grocery store, The Fresh Market, it has some nice options for breads, prepared foods, pastries, etc. All are prepared in-store. We pop in there at home often enough when we do not want to go to a restaurant and do not want to cook.
The only thing I'm not crazy about is the public beach next door that rents jet skis. When there are multiple rentals of these noisy, obnoxious things, we feel it detracts from enjoying the ocean. We swam in the ocean every day for long periods. The water is calm here and warm. The beach is covered with shells so some type of swim sock or sandal is recommended. I came prepared. My poor husband didn't and his feet paid the price for not listening to his spouse.
We had a GREAT time here. The big, shaded back yard was just perfect for a family get together and there were plenty of games available for the times when we were not at the beach. It was so peaceful to get up in the morning and look out back to the ocean. And we loved the hammock and the swing! When we didn't feel like cooking, we could just walk next door to Doc's for a meal. To top it off, Donna was great to work with. We would love to come back again.
We already loved the pictures which didn't promise too much. The house which makes you feel to be back in the 50's, already with some patina but still very nice, clean and comfortable . The garden - with beautiful big trees giving comfortable shade all day long - is right at the beach and offers a very exclusive position. Privacy but still close to beach activities and a funny restaurant. We would love to come back soon and stay much longer. Thank you Donna!
This vacation started out as just a getaway for my wife and I. I then shared the pictures with my daughter and son-in-law, as well as my son. Once they saw the place, we started talking about a family vacation and it all came together perfectly. The beach setting was perfect. We loved the close location to activities and great food. The sandy back yard that rolled into the ocean, separated by a row of Australian pine trees that provided just the right amount of filtered light to relax in the hammock or the Adirondack chairs....makes me want to go back already. Also, I cannot say enough about the excellent communication we received throughout our experience working with Donna. Thanks and we will be back.
This is a very comfortable two bedroom beach bungalow. They are getting harder to find as the trend is to knock them down and build huge houses. Beach walks are the best around. Right next door to docs beach house restaurant . We had a great stay and plan to return . Donna is very nice.
Downtown Naples 5th and 3rd streets are about 40 minutes away by car directly south down hwy41. Sanibel and Captiva to the north.
