Charming Bay Side Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for my parents to stay in while other family members were staying on the beach side for our June vacation. This home has just been remodeled, adding a second bath, enlarging the kitchen and decorated so nicely. The dock is a perfect place to keep the boat for everyone to enjoy and do a little fishing from there too. This is the second year they have stayed here and have enjoyed it both times. Arlan (rental agent) is the BEST to work with.

Great location, great value

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is right on the canal/bay, and a 2-minute walk to the beautiful Gulf beaches. The property manager was very responsive. The house was comfortable, but could use some rental upgrades to furnishings, kitchen stuff, outdoor area, etc.

An absoutely perfect place.

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed on this same street twice before, and selected this home because of its location, pet-friendly terms, the bay out the back door, and the dock for fishing. After hauling our two big dogs 1,700 miles from Maine, it was a true haven! The famous dog beach is two miles up the road, and the Bonita Springs dog park is just ten minutes inland. How wonderful. The house was very well equipped with respect to the kitchen, linens, etc., and came with abundant media and Wi-Fi. It would have been helpful to have a written guide to the TV-internet setup, but we figured it out. Some needed minor repair work seems to have gone by the wayside, and the crawl-space underneath the back deck was full of what appeared to be decades of discarded and rusting yard equipment. But none of the minor negatives mattered when we were sitting out back enjoying the view and the quiet. Because of it's very shallow location, fishing off the dock was a bit disappointing; I caught two fish shortly after we arrived, but had not a single bite in the following ten days. And yes, dolphins, manatees and gorgeous angel sharks really did swim right in to visit us. The home is very conveniently located just 5 minutes from nice restaurants, with supermarkets and any other store or service one might need. The beautiful Gulf beach is right across the street, and it's a quick trip up to bustling Fort Meyers or down to tony Naples. All in all, this place is a really superb offering.
