About Steve Baptiste
Hi everyone. I'm Steve. Welcome to Florida. I was born in Allentown, PA and grew up in South Carolina. After a prolonged enrollment at Clemson University I moved to the sunshine state and have loved every second of it. I put away the finance degree and went self employed and have never looked back.
Steve Baptiste purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Steve Baptiste chose Bonita Shores
I purchased my first house while a student at Clemson. I have always liked Real Estate. I bought this unit a few years back when it was still in need of much work. It had one thing that I will never forget...character. There are a ton of cookie cutter homes or dime a dozen condos scattering Southwest Florida. Mine is the only place like this!
What makes this Cottage unique
Location location location. This place is right where you want to be. A mile to the beach and a block to the river the water is never far away. Be it the vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams that you never see anymore or the close proximity to everything you need you can't go wrong.

If anyone is looking for a clean florida style home or vacation rental, this is it. We stayed here for May and June and loved it. Close to the beach, local restaurants, entertainment, and in a calm neighborhood. The owner Steve is also very nice and accomodating.
I’m glad to hear you both had a pleasant stay. It was a pleasure for me too. Steve.
Cozy and quiet - perfect for 2
This cottage is the perfect vacation spot for a couple looking to avoid the high priced condos. The cottage is clean, located in a quiet residential neighborhood and close to everything. It has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Steve is a great host, very attentive and helpful with "local" recommendations - off the beaten track, away from the tourist crowd. Wonderful place at a reasonable price. We will definitely be staying here again.
Hey Jack. Great to hear you enjoyed yourself. It was a pleasure meeting you. Let me know when you are headed back down..>Steve
Upstairs rental, quiet and close to beach
This rental is an upstairs floor of a house on a quiet street. Has a great outside deck with barbecue, with plenty of privacy. The owner provides 2 bike for cruising around (avoids parking fees at the beach, about 1.5 miles away) The unit has all necessary kitchen and bath items. Our only issue was with the internet, which was not broadband and not useful for streaming. Overall we had a great 2 week stay and would stay there again.
Cozy, comfortable beach cottage and n a neighborhood near the beach.
We had a great 10 day stay in this comfortable home. It was very clean and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy Southwest Florida.
Enjoyed our stay
We enjoyed our stay at the Riverdale cottage. The house was clean and comfortable and as described in the listing. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly - a great place to walk and bike - and close to shopping and the beaches. Steve was readily accessible and helpful. Hope congrats are in order by now, Steve and Rachel!
Great location, quiet and clean unit!
Considering it was our first Rental, we were pleased with the accommodations. It had a "cottage feel", but the fact that it was a 2 story did not work well for my wife.
