Alexander Mayr purchased this house in 2013
The stunning views and the short walk to Doc's Beach House make this the perfect beach vacation home for the whole family.
Amenities and beach toy rentals (Jet Ski, Paddle Boards, etc.) at Doc's Beach House.
There were many things to like about the house. Location was excellent. Even with 3 grandchildren ages 7 and under we could walk to the beach in 7-8 minutes. Many nice restaurants within short driving distance. The view from the back of the house was very nice. The kitchen was nice, with new pots and everything in relatively good shape. You could enjoy a nice view from the family room and two enclosed patio areas. The bedrooms were all comfortable and clean.
Some of the house was showing some age, but not totally unexpected for a beach rental. There were a couple of issues that need to be addressed. The screening around the pool is in need of repair. Several holes in the screen allowed the mosquitoes inside and it was impossible to sit outside in the evening hours without spraying repellent on. There are 2 garages attached. One of garages would fill with water after any rain (which occurred pretty much every afternoon the week we were there) and much of it would be left with standing water of 1/2 to an inch or so. You then had to walk thru it to get to the kayak and canoe stored there (which was another nice plus!) and which likely contributed to a little bit of a musty smell on the lower level. There were a few other things on the lower level needing attention such as the light and exhaust fan by the shower which did not work.
We, a group of 3 couples with 4 kids, stayed at Alex's place over a long weekend. The house was more than sufficiently spacious to accommodate us all, and it was stocked with all that we would need to make for a great time (pool and beach toys, fishing gear, canoe, bbq, big patio deck, etc).
On top of that Alex was prompt and helpful with all questions and enquiries, including tracking down some stuff we forgot in our last minute sweep prior to checking out.
Recommend highly and thanks once again very much!
This was our first visit to Bonita Springs and this house made our trip very enjoyable. My wife and I visited with our two children (ages 9 and 7) and had a wonderful time. The best part about the house was that, if you're looking for a relaxing vacation, you really don't have to leave the property to have a great experience. From fishing, kayaking, time in the pool or reading on the beautiful deck that overlooks the bay - it's all right there. The location was ideal as it's just a couple minutes to walk to Bonita Beach and to several area restaurants. If we visit this area again, we'll be sure to see if this house is available.
Nice roomy house on a quiet back water bay . Refreshing swimming pool and also very close to beach . Loved the location !
The location of this property is excellent. It is located right on a large bay. It is a short walk to the beach. House was very clean. Kitchen was updated. There were plenty of bath towels and linens were nice. There was a kayak and a canoe which we greatly appreciated. The waterway was a lot of fun to explore and we saw a lot of birds and dolphins while paddling. There were four bikes that we used and enjoyed. There was a nice screened in pool, but the water was too cool to use but I imagine on a warmer, sunnier day, it would be nice. There are two large bedrooms on the upper floor that are very nice. There are two bedrooms on the lower floor. One is nicely carpeted; the other could use a little updating. Overall, we had a great time. Nice restaurants within walking distance. Beautiful Barefoot Beach down the road. We dined at Coconut Jacks twice and walked further down the road to C Level which is a very nice restaurant with tremendous atmosphere. Love this area.
The location of this property could not be better. Quick walk to the beach and within walking or quick driving time to VERY good restaurants.
The kitchen is nicely updated but was missing some essential cooking items - like no oven mitts and no pans to bake anything in the oven. Also one dish cloth and 2 dish towels seemed a bit stingy - so if you are coming remember to bring those. If you are cooking also bring a sharp knife - not a complaint but a good reminder for those coming to the property.
The beds are comfortable in the 3 big bedrooms but as with the other review the 4th bedroom with a mini kitchen in the basement was a bit odd and we were glad we did not have to use it.
There are 4 bikes but they are small - if you are an adult and expect to bike bring your own. Biking is pretty safe as there are lots of bike lanes.
The back of the property faces north so there is not much sun on the back deck or at the pool - but that might be OK on really warm days - which I know is usually the norm in Bonita Springs - but we had a cool week so were not really able to use the pool much because of that. The second week warmed up and the pool heated up as well.
Restaurants we recommend - Coconut Jacks, A Table Apart, Enzo's. The Fish House. Docs was good for bar type food but their pizza is wonderful and a must have.
