About Terry Conelias

My husband and I jumped at the chance to own a beach house directly across the street from the Gulf of Mexico beaches and on Bonita Bay. The beaches are quiet. Keep busy all day or come to do absolutely nothing.

Terry Conelias purchased this house in 2015

Why Terry Conelias chose Bonita Springs

Location! Location! Location! Easy to get to the beach, easy to get to the bars, easy to get to golf, shopping or dinner.

Easy to get to the house from FT Myers Airport.

Relaxing home, awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very enjoyable home. It has a great view of a larger part of a bay where we saw dolphins and a manatee! Every night we walked the short walk across the street to watch the sunset and sat in beach chairs they provided. The location is easy access to spring baseball venues, Lovers Key State Park - where we kayaked and saw many manatees etc, Ft. Myers area, Sanibel Island, Naples and more. The home was neat and tidy and comfortable with everything we needed. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had and responded quickly. Overall it was a great vacation! Thank you.

This home has a perfect location....just across from a beach access point and it backs up to the bay. The best of two worlds. The house was very clean and well equipped....very comfortable. We plan to return!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect location, very comfortable, very clean and is well equipped. The dock and patio are the perfect spots to watch the dolphins play in the bay. The beach is just across the street, a perfect beach for long walks and to watch beautiful sunsets.

Doc's Restaurant and Big Hickory Seafood Grill are walking distance from the house.

Owner's are quick to respond and very easy to work with.

We are already planning our next trip to Bonita Beach and will definitely book this house again.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and absolutely loved it. The location was great. We felt like we had the best of both worlds having the dock and bay view right from the back yard, but then the beach was literally a walk across the street. The sunset at dusk was breathtaking. We walked over with a glass a wine and two beach chairs, then came back 20 minutes later. Super convenient! The house also was wasn't far from some great bars and restaurants. We actually took an uber to Naples for some dinner and dancing at night. The ride cost only $12.00!! We were very happy with the ample parking for our rental car and loved having a grill right outside for making dinner and enjoying cocktails in the evening. The house had a nice "beachy" feel that made it feel like a vacation. Overall, we would definitely go back again and highly recommend it to others.

Perfect vacation spot steps away from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This home was in a fantastic location - steps from the beach (exactly as described in the ad) with the bay in the backyard! Terry was flexible, pleasant and easy to work with for the rental process. The house and surrounding area was quiet and relaxing. The beach was beautiful with warm calm waters where we saw dolphins swimming. We rented a boat from Bonita Boat Rentals (literally just down the street and within walking distance), which was really fun and also affordable. There were restaurants within walking distance, which was great! It was wonderful waking up and having coffee while waking sunrise over the bay. I would highly recommend this house for a quiet, relaxing vacation spot!

Location, location, location! This private home is located on Big Hickory Island, directly across the street from the beach. This bay front house offers a spectacular view from the patio, screened in porch and dock. Florida's natural beauty surrounds this beach house. The wildlife and birds are plentiful. Watch the manatee play and dolphins jump from all the comforts of home. The back yard will take your breath away. What a view! Very quiet and peaceful. Tranquility on the bay. In the evening, you can even watch the Snook fish swim about all from the lighted boat dock. A bike path and sidewalk are right outside the front door. Talk about a walker's paradise! Restaurants and beach bar are within a mile of the home. Ample parking.
