All too soon our holiday is coming to an end. We have had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We think Casa Bonita is such a lovely villa.You have given such thought to providing everything one might need for a great holiday. We particularly appreciated the large sun umbrella this year. It provided good shade cover on the beach. This is the third time we have stayed and have many happy memories to take home.
Thanks again for our stay. We hope to return to this delightful area.
I can't praise this villa and it's owners enough.
This was the most comfortable and best stocked villa I have ever stayed in. The pool was fantastic and really private. It's within walking distance of an amazing ice cream shop as well as a few bars and restaurants. It's well located to travel down to Everglades City for airboats as well as up to Fort Myers for baseball, theme parks and water parks not to mention the jewel in the crown of Bonita beach which is a 5 min drive down the road and the most amazing beach and sunsets I've ever seen. We went to the beach 2 days and both times dolphins swam past us when we were in the sea.
The owners were great too - great communication and very helpful.
I can't wait to return.
The property is in a great location for exploring Naples and the surrounding area.
The villa was very clean and smart on arrival just as the pictures on the website. The pool was lovely, warm enough from the solar heating.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with and very helpful with information in the area, in particular where to find the free beach parking tips!
We would recommend Casa Bonita to anyone looking to stay in the area.
A lovely property in a good location, close to the beach, although with a great heated pool there is no need to go anywhere but by the pool.
Very well equipped house with everything you would need and more, from the cooking utensils, to bikes, BBQ, and beach gear.
Shops are nearby and a big outlet mall a few miles away if you want to shop and grab a bargain.
We really enjoyed our stay, very relaxing in and very comfortable, well maintained property with lovely owners.
Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone.
We have been renting vacation homes in Florida for over 20 years and Casa Bonita was, by far, the best equipped house we have every stayed in! The owners have thought of absolutely everything, the kitchen was particularly well equipped, including kitchen towels, cling film wrap and tin foil. The house description was very accurate and the booking process was very easy to complete; also our security deposit was returned extremely promptly. The house was very clean on arrival and is in a great location, very convenient for the beach and other attractions, also for shops and restaurants, many of which are within walking distance. The owners provide masses of information relating to the local area. A minor problem we had whilst there was very quickly dealt with. The pool and outside space were superb and the beds were very comfortable. We wouldn't hesitate to return to Casa Bonita and can highly recommend it.
My family stayed here to escape the cold winter in the north. We had a fantastic time! It is one of those houses that you are tempted to not review at all because you want to keep the secret to yourself! Peter and Cate (the owners) were very thoughtful and have everything that one would need when staying. The cupboards and light switches are labeled and it makes getting to know the house very easy. My 4 children loved the pool and if you are good with keeping the cover on it the temp was extremely pleasant...even in December! That was the highlight of our vacation for my kids, but my wife and I loved the surrounding area's nature hikes and beaches. The home is on a quiet street and we were more concerned about our happy, screaming children in the pool than anyone around disturbing us. It was such a beautiful getaway location for us. My kids actually thanked us more than once for setting this all up....which they haven't done on the many vacations we have taken them on.
Disfrutamos mucho la estadia en casa bonita. La casa es grande y muy cómoda. y estaba bien limpia. Disfrutamos de la piscina cuando no íbamos a la Playa. Las Playas quedan a corta distancia en carro. Los dueños estuvieron muy atentos durante nuestra estadia. Son muy amables. Recomiendo altamente esta propiedad. Muchas gracias Cate and Pete. Thank you very much Cate & Pete, we enjoyed our vacation in your house. You keep your property clean and well maintained. The beaches are really close and also restaurants and shopping stores. We recommend highly casa bonita for your next vacation.
Bonita Shores is a quiet residential neighborhood near the Gulf of Mexico (and its fabulous beaches) between Naples to the south and Lovers Key to the north. Sunny and mild weather year-round makes Southwest Florida a holiday paradise. Our guests enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities, many of which are focused on the beach, but other opportunities for nature study are diverse and remarkable. Try birding at Ding Darling Sanibel Island or Corkscrew Audubon Sanctuary, spot alligators at the Big Cypress, or boat through the vast and mysterious Everglades. Peter is a guide/naturalist and if you like he can give you tips on where to go to see wildlife and nature at its best. Recent guests have enjoyed trips in our boat to remote and seldom seen beaches for shelling, walking, swimming and picnicking. Ask Cate or Peter for more information.
