About Bernd Bruckler

We are Bernd, Veera, Ella (6 years), Niklas (5 years) and Philip (3 years) and we are from Austria and Finland. Our work has taken us to places like Canada, the U.S., Russia and all over Europe. We currently live in Espoo, Finland where Veera runs her own company, an organic business ( www.twistbe.fi/en ).

Often we have found ourselves craving sunshine and warm weather. As a result, after having spent a couple of springs in SW Florida, we finally decided to buy our own home in the sun.

We are a young family of five and building this house was the perfect fit for us.

Bernd Bruckler purchased this house in 2013

Why Bernd Bruckler chose Florida South Gulf Coast

While searching for potential homes we wanted to be close to the airport, close to the beach, and close to Naples and also our friends who live in Estero and Fort Myers. This community fit our expectations perfectly.

What makes this house unique

Our home is beautiful with new furniture and Veera has designed the rooms together with the designers at Pottery Barn. It really feels like a home and our renters will be able to enjoy a new and clean villa.

The unique benefits of the gated community include the two club houses, two gyms, two community swimming pools, tennis courts and a manned security gate.

So quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed the whole month of January. Our stay was wonderful! The place looks very much like the virtual tour on VRBO--no surprises. Recently decorated by Pottery Barn and looks like new. Nothing boring about this place-rich colors, has everything you need and then some. The flow of the water into the pool from the hot tub was so relaxing I could barely stay awake to read. Working with Bernd was a joy. A few minor things needed to be attended to and he had a professional in there the next day and it was fixed immediately. I love the quiet location east of #41-- actually closer to #75. Much less congestion! The road that runs by the house is a dead end and has minimal traffic. Community pool and exercise room is a plus. Conveniently located to all of the main sites you want to see when you arrive--beaches, great restaurants and wonderful shopping areas. You can go to Naples on Imperial which parallels #41 and is much less congested. Hawthorne is a quiet gated community with friendly people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. John & Sheri

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

From the first step we entered the house, we loved it. The decoration is very tasteful and cozy. We felt so comfortable during our 3 week stay. Veera and Bernd spent lots of thought into making their villa at Hawthorne a special place!

My family had a great vacation, we went to the Barefoot Beach everyday and enjoyed the pool when coming home. Hawthorne is ideally located (close to beaches and all of our favorite shopping malls)

The home was very clean and it was stocked with everything you would need. Families with young children will find all that stuff they need for their little ones, like stroller, beach toys, small bikes..... so cute !

The rental process was easy and Bernd was very helpful.

We recommend this rental property to everyone.

Dankeschön to Veera and Bernd !!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful place !

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at this amazing house. This was the nicest house we've ever rented. When we first walked in, our jaws dropped. BEAUTIFUL decorating...an upscale yet beachy feel. The pool is great, we were in every day, multiple times. We really like the location. It's convenient to everything yet it feels very private. Quiet and gorgeous neighborhood, gated community. Everything you could possibly want or need is a this home. We loved our stay. Bonita Springs is a super destination. Can't wait to return.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time. The house and neighbourhood was amazing. Very clean home and beautifully furnished. It is close to the beach which is a plus. The house being so well equipped for children was amazing for us. The child gate around the pool was the best. We were able to enjoy the pool and be pool side without having to worry about our daughter who is 1.5 years old falling in. Recommend children's museum which is 15 mins away to those with children as well. Great local restaurants.

The owner Bernd was great and was always quick to respond.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Great Property and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for one week, and had a great experience! The home is very well appointed and in a quiet, gated community. It is very close to shopping and the beaches! We took a trip to Naples (best shopping!!!) and it is a quick 15-20 minute trip. We are planning on returning next year! I highly recommend this lovely home for any family. The pool was a true life saver for our 12 year old son! We used it a lot. Don't hesitate, rent this property! Also, the owner is very involved with anything you may need during your stay. We did not need anything, but the offer was clearly made.
