Hickory House

  • 5 of 5

House is such a lovely retreat! We were five adults and four children and the house was very roomy and ideally set up. Kitchen had everything needed and then some! Only steps to the gorgeous Gulf. Before leaving, we booked for next year with everyone anxious to return.

Arlan was excellent and for the few questions we had, he immediately answered us.

Thank you so much!

Beautiful vacation home with all amenities and a second family room adjacent to the 2 downstairs bedrooms. Great pool and jacuzzi, and the beach is your backyard. The kitchen could use a pot with a fitting lid and the beach towels and chairs are not that great. Only 2 beach umbrellas.

Otherwise a truly wonderful place!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a family reunion at Hickory House that was perfect for our group. Tons of room for all of us, incredibly clean, plenty of towels and the pool was great after a day at the beach. Sunsets and the location were fantastic.

I can't say enough about Arlan. He is an extraordinary host and made sure we had absolutely NOTHING to worry about but enjoying ourselves.

Look no further if you are wanting a great place on Bonita Beach!

Heaven on Earth!

I am so very hesitant to leave this review, selfish as it is, I'd love to keep this little gem a secret! However, I know that in order for Hickory House to stay on the rental market, it will need bookings, so alas, I will share about this amazing property.

First, let me say that over the years we have stayed at dozens upon dozens of VRBO rentals and upscale hotels. I have never dealt with a kinder, more thorough and genuine caretaker than Arlan. From the moment we booked the house to every little question in between, Arlan tirelessly helped and answered questions. During our stay he made sure everything was in order and genuinely cared that we were happy. Arlan and his wife have fully stocked this house. From beach towels, to games to beach floats/toys to DVD'S to extra linens, to kitchen appliances and dishes...it's all there.

Hickory House itself was immaculate. Great attention to detail was continually noticed. Ample amounts of comfortable patio furniture on the balcony as well as on the pool deck. Actual, comfortable sofas upstairs, chairs that swivel to allow you to watch the beach and soft rugs were a pleasure.

This home is perfect if you are traveling with elderly family. I wish my own grandmother could have made it down. The elevator brings you with ease up to the main living area. From the upstairs balcony, a grandparent or great-grandparent could watch children play in the pool or on the beach.

I agree whole heartedly with the other glowing reviews of Hickory House.

Amazing....Memorable....Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family just got done staying for a week in the Hickory Home. We couldn't of been happier. We are a family of 6, the 4 kids range from 11-2. We also had the grandparents with us. This house accommodated us all very well, plenty of room. We were literally steps from the Gulf. Kids swam in the pool for hours everyday and then would run down to the ocean quick to take a dip. We could watch all this happen while sitting on the lanai taking in the amazing views, of course that is if we weren't in the pool ourselves! Which the sunsets you cant even describe.... majestic! You could see plenty of ocean life splashing around too. From the time we booked the home, during our stay and until we got home, the property manager, Arlan was so very helpful and accommodating! We did a few excursions but not too many, kids and adults included just enjoyed being at the home, taking it all in, and getting some sun and R and R! We did do parasailing, rented a private boat one day and had a private chef come into the home for dinner one night. Would do all that again. The few lunch/diners we had out were fun and very good too. Seasons52, Coconut Jacks, Flippers and BaleenNAPLES. We will be back for sure!! Thanks for such a fun and memorable week! Priceless!
