About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Here’s your chance to vacation less than 100 steps from a sugary white beach, in a beautiful Key West-style house loaded with amenities. Views of the Gulf of Mexico or the beautiful bay from every room, porches and private lanais, a backyard with a swing set, a ping-pong table, a marina with a public slip just a minute’s walk away… Yes, Bonita Beauty really does have it all!

With 2 master suites, 2 living rooms, 2 front decks, and 2 back porches, Bonita Beauty is ideal for 2 families vacationing together or for a reunion of friends or family.

The back porches have views of the bay to the east. Wake up early and settle in on the hammock seat to watch the sunrise, or enjoy breakfast out here at the bistro table.

Then, when the day is coming to a close, decamp to the front decks to watch the sunset over the gulf. Enjoy dinner with the show: The decks have a new propane grill so that you can cook your catch of the day (the fishing here is spectacular!), and tables and chairs for alfresco dining.

Should you prefer eating indoors, Bonita Beauty has a huge dining table that can easily seat 10 adults, as well as a breakfast bar in the adjacent kitchen with room for a half-dozen more. The kids will love to climb up on the stools and eat at the counter while the grown-ups linger over their meal in the dining room.

The kitchen will please even the most sophisticated cook. It includes not one but 2 full-size refrigerator/freezers--great if you plan on entertaining a crowd--appliances galore, cookware, utensils, and tableware.

Each floor has its own living room with French doors that open onto a front deck, as well as a flat-screen smart TV with Netflix and Pandora apps. And let’s not forget the free wifi, the chess and backgammon table, and the board games and puzzles for the occasional rainy day.

What’s more, the garage has been converted into a game room complete with a ping-pong table. And if you’re traveling with very little ones, you’ll be happy to know that Bonita Beauty is equipped with a pack-and-play, a high chair, beach toys, and even a jogging stroller. You can leave the beach chairs and towels at home too: Yup, Bonita Beauty has those as well. In addition, recent changes to the property include 2 new EV charger plugs in the garage - a Tesla 80 amp charger and a NEMA-14-50 charger (universal plug for all EV vehicles).

The bedrooms are as thoughtfully designed as the rest of the house. Each of the master suites is furnished with a lofty king-size bed and a flat-screen TV. Each also has an en-suite bath and, best of all, doors that open onto a private lanai overlooking the bay. Enjoy a romantic nightcap under the stars before turning in for the night--bliss!

The 3rd bedroom would be considered a master bedroom in many other rentals; it has a queen-size bed and its own flat-screen TV. With 2 bunk beds, the 4th bedroom is slumber-party central for the kids. These bedrooms share a full bath with a shower and tub; there’s a powder room as well for added convenience.

Speaking of convenience, Bonita Beauty has its own washer and dryer, and of course, fresh bath and bed linens are provided. You can rent everything from bikes and boats to paddleboards and fishing gear nearby, so pack light!

Perhaps Bonita Beauty’s greatest convenience is its prime location. You can escape to the beach in a snap, and a crosswalk provides easy access. Its velvety white sands are rich with seashells and just right for building sandcastles, while the gulf is ideal for jet skiing, parasailing, and surf fishing. You’re almost certain to see dolphins or manatees frolicking alongside the boats in the water.

The neighborhood itself is quiet and family-friendly, with sidewalks for running and biking. Just a few miles away is Lovers Key State Park, and a bit farther north the restaurants, bars, and live entertainment of Fort Myers Beach’s Times Square area.

There’s only one disadvantage to staying at Bonita Beauty: You’ll never want to head back home! See for yourself: Book your stay today.

My review of Bonita Beauty

  • 1 of 5

Mixed feelings. I was Leary about my stay, given all the bad reviews I found. On arrival, April 22, 2017, We were excited. Initially the house was big, organized, and a good location. Then we discovered the upstairs master closet was locked. No place to hang clothes. The first day, a man came to the door to replace 4 light bulbs in the master bath. 4 out of 6. How long does it take for 4 out of 6 bulbs take to burn out? I felt like it was a reason to walk through the entire home to inspect. Also, on arrival we discovered the living room couch was broken, and the coffee table had been damaged. I took pictures, and called Maintenance. They told me that they would document issue. I also talked to the neighbor, who informed me, a group of college kids had damaged the furniture. The rugs were filthy.The tile was so dirty, our socks were black. 1 of the garage doors, didn't close. I repaired the wiring that was loose. The second day, the Homeowner showed up with a contractor unannounced. My son came back to the house, unable to enter the garage. He asked the owner if he could move his car, so he could get in. He replied, " are you the renter?". He replied my dad is. He stated, he needed to enter the house. My son stated that he would look to see if everyone was dressed. With that, the owner pushed by, and entered the house. Also, there is a house behind the property, under construction. Noise morning to night. Throw carpets, filthy. We still had a good time. Monday, May 1st, I called the office to see if My check out was completed? They stated the homeowner claimed the couch and coffee table were broken. I asked why this happened, when I contacted them about this issue? They stated they had no record of my call. They would investigate. Either the cleaning crew didn't report damage, or the owner is trying to extort money out of me, for previous damage. I called VRBO, 3 times tonight, 05/02/17. Every time, the rep. couldn't find my reservation, even though i gave them my email, name, dates, address, and confirmation #. Then they said I rented Jan 01/2016 at another property not true. I was then disconnected. I called back, same person answered, claiming to be a different person. Hung up on again. Called back a third time, same person, different name. I was told to email my problems. How many people get this total run around, accusations, and lies, to extort money out of unsuspecting people. Review on VRBO stated couch broken 04/17. Complete scam.

Fabulous. So restful and close to the beach. Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and comfortable. We loved all the decks for spending time outside and watching the sunset. Great location excellent paths for running and biking. Boat slips close by we're lots of fun for fishing and boating. Walk across to the beach was very easy and the provided chairs and umbrellas were perfect. Perfect for 2 families with kids - ping pong table was a huge bonus. Kids loved the bunk bed room. Excellent kitchen for cooking in and well supplied. Also great with the open living room to always be a part of the action. We will be coming back!

Multiple families will enjoy the location to Beach!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the amenities in Bonita Beauty. The location is perfect! The living room couch is broken and needs to be replaced. The linens on the beds need to be replaced as well as the queen size bed downstairs.

We'd love to return when updated. Great place for multiply families.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house 7/2/16-7/9/16 with 6 adults and 3 little kids, ages 5 and 2 year old twins. The house is incredible - clean, superbly furnished, comfortable everything! Beds, sofas and recliner chairs were perfect after time in the sun! Cooked in and grilled and it was a joy to be in the kitchen. Tons of games, and stuff for the beach is great! Elevator was a good addition fir bringing groceries and baggage in. Walk to fabulous beach is super short. Fireworks show for July 4th was incredible!!

Thank you for a great week!

My family stayed here the 1st full week of April for Spring Break. The home is clean, comfortable beds, well stocked and simply a wonderful vacation home. We've rented MANY homes over the years and this by far was the cleanest we have stayed in. The staff did an excellent job. The location is perfect - only a few steps to the beach, short driving distance to Ft. Myers and/or Bonita Springs. There were 5 of us who stayed in the home, but it is large enough to have twice that many. I can't say enough about this beautiful home. We looked at renting it for Thanksgiving, but I see it's already booked :( We hope to return next year.

Great family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for Christmas week and enjoyed every minute of it. Our first impression was that the house is much bigger than it appears in the pictures. It accommodated two families (4 adults and 6 children) easily with plenty of room to spare. The top floor includes the kitchen, giant dining table, family room and a beautiful deck (one of 4) that has views of the Gulf and perfect sunsets. It really is just a quick walk across the street to the beach, where we spent our time all day everyday. The house is very well equipped for kids including a ping pong table, play set in the back yard, chess table (that was a big hit) and plenty of games to play. It also has plenty of beach toys, chairs and a nice cart to easily carry everything you need to the beach. The kitchen had every utensil we needed to make Christmas dinner, two full size refrigerators, plenty of glasses, plates, etc. The two master bedrooms allow plenty of space to unpack and have VERY comfortable beds (that is a big priority for us). The kids loved the "kids room" that sleeps 6 easily and the elevator was perfect for a visit from local grandparents who cannot use the stairs. We have already recommended Bonita Beauty to some friends and look forward to coming back. It's a great way to be close to our snow bird parents while having our own house on the beach!
