Lawrence Lilly purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Lawrence Lilly chose Bonita Shores
We purchased this property because of the Tranquility and logistics to Gulf Waters, International Airport, Ft. Myers, Naples, Estero,, bicycle to Beaches and Kayak the Back Bays. Great fishing, many golf courses nearby, available is high season. We are West of U.S. 41 and bike to Beaches and shopping. Tropical Vanderbilt Lakes is a well maintained development off Vanderbilt Dr. just East of Bonita Beach rd. Offering 2 Lakes, 3/4 of a mile from the Gulf of Mexico as the Crow flies. Gulf Breezes all day long. Our building is low density with lots of green space adding to the Sub-Tropical feel and plenty of Free Parking. A 20 acre Lake directly across from our front door to bike or jog around while looking at beautiful homes. The Lake is 1.2 miles elongated with finger courts. 2 Heated pools (temperature 86) with Hot/Spa, jetted Tubs(temperature 102-104), Refrigerated,filtered drinking fountains, 4 Gazebos, His and Her showers, professionally updated restrooms, and the Tennis court. All within walking distance. Exclusive Private Gas B.B.Q. off our whimsical private Lanai which is off both, the Master bedroom for morning coffee and off the Kitchen adds to the flow and convenience. Best of all; is being so close to the Gulf Beaches and Back Bays gives you Gulf breezes and many water experiences. We like the waterfront dining and many Public Golf courses being so close to Vanderbilt Lakes and available in high season.

Nancy and Stephane,
Thank you for your great care of our condominium. Good to hear that everything was perfect and thank you for the great review.
PARADISE FOUND AGAIN
I enjoyed my visit to this condo once again. The condo was everything the owner had described. The photos were current and reflected the improvements since my last stay. The interior was exceptionally clean and the king-size bed was very comfortable. It is so peaceful and quiet on the lanai. The owner was readily available and made some recommendations of places to go. I went exploring, took a pontoon ride on the back bay, and enjoyed the beaches. Naples Botanical Gardens and The Pier are a must. We also experienced several waterfront restaurants for the first time. I enjoyed my one-mile walk around Vanderbilt Lake, and the heated pools and hot tubs were rejuvenating. I may take up tennis on my next visit since there is a tennis court. I would highly recommend this unit whether you are a first-timer or a seasoned renter. Counting the days until I return.
Thank you Rose for such a great opine on your stay in November of 2016. Just the fact that you came back again is testimony to the many advantages of staying at our condominium. I am pleased to hear how you enjoyed our upgrades and the many attractions in the area. The fact that we are so close to the beaches and back bays is just one of the many reasons we purchased in this area. We look forward to your next stay and thank you for taking care of our belongings. Regards.
Spacious & Clean
We had the pleasure of staying in this condo in April. The weather and the accommodations were just perfect!!!!! I was pleasantly surprised with the layout and size of the condo. We really liked that there was a full size washer and dryer in the unit. The condo was impeccably clean and maintained. The king sized bed was one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept in and we liked that there was a private bathroom that was attached to the master bedroom. The owner, Larry made some wonderful suggestions for restaurants and public beach access in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Bonita Springs and will be returning in the near future. We would highly recommend securing a stay at this condo! Thanks again for making our vacation a great one!!!!!!
Tom and Lauren,
We are pleased to hear your experience was a good one. We look forward to your stay with us in the future and thank you for taking good care of our belongings. Regards Larry and Linda
We rented this condo for three months but stayed for only ten weeks. We left early. All of the appliances appear to be those that were in the condo when it was built about twenty years ago. The shower off the master bedroom is very small, perhaps half the size of a standard shower. There is far too much furniture for the interior space available. We had to walk sideways between the glass tables and the sofas because there is so little space in the living room and bonus room. Also the throw rugs that are throughout the living room and dining room are tripping hazards for anyone who walks with difficulty. There are three single beds in the small, guest bedroom that is extremely crowded. We were a bit embarrassed when we had guests that their room was so dark and cluttered and by all the signs inside the condo telling you what you should not be doing...like opening a bedroom window. Even the space under the beds, which normally would be good for storing a suitcase, was already taken up with the owners belonging. The small lanai, which could have been very pleasant was over crowded with the owner' belongings. Overall we felt as if we were using someone's home with all of their preferences. It seemed to us that there was very little accommodation for what a three month renter might want by way of space and flexibility. We have rented four previous winters in the Bonita Beach area and this was our least favorite choice. We have previously had excellent landlords.
On a more positive note, the community is wonderful. We met some very nice people, including several who live in Vanderbilt Lakes all year round. All of the homes that we visited were very nice had an open, airy feeling. We are coming back to the area next winter, to a more pleasant condo. Unfortunately, the owners withheld over $600 of our security deposit. For the last ten years that we have rented through VRBO, we have always gotten our full security deposit back immediately. We eventually got all of our $1000 back but it was the final bit of unpleasantness that we experienced. Too bad, it could have been so much better.
I am very sorry to read that you feel this way and that your stay wasn’t perfect. Reading this review about the dissatisfaction with our unit is the first that I’m hearing of your displeasure. In regards to you booking for 3 months and only staying 10 weeks and leaving early…you were scheduled to arrive on 1/1/2016 and didn’t arrive until 1/10/2016. I was then made aware by the maid service on 3/25/2016 that you had departed early on 3/23/2016 for a scheduled doctor’s appointment back home.
My wife and I pride ourselves on having a beautiful clean condo and it saddens me that you feel this way. In regards to the kitchen appliances, they have been replaced within the past 5 years and are warranted and all are in good working order.
The shower in the master bathroom is nearly 5 feet long with seating for two. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and we have included 24 pictures for renters to view prior to booking our condo. All of the pictures show how the rooms are arranged, including furniture, rugs, and appliances.
I am surprised that you felt that it was difficult for you to move around and that the rugs could cause “tripping hazards”…again, this is the first that I am hearing about this from you and have never had any prior complaints.
I want to also apologize that you felt embarrassed by the guest room…per the listing and our initial conversation, the listing states and we also discussed that there are 2 twin beds and a trundle bed to accommodate added guests (which initially you were pleased about considering you had guests coming to visit).
I will gladly admit that some friendly reminders are around the condo…including one that states to not open the guest bedroom window, because the sprinklers will spray inside the window. I have never had complaints about the reminders and all of our previous guests appreciated the notes.
The lanai is just as it appears in the pictures and is spacious and accommodates a table, 4 Queen Ann chairs, plus extra space to move around.
The end result is that we did refund your security deposit in full. We disagree with the condition in which the condo was left after your stay compared to your arrival.
We are disappointed that your stay wasn’t a perfect one and hope that your future stays in Florida are. Regards, Larry and Linda
PARADISE FOUND IN BEST-LOVED VACATION SPOT
We were very impressed when we first arrived at the well-maintained and beautifully landscaped Vanderbilt Lakes development. It is in an excellent location, close to Naples and other sightseeing areas. We loved our morning walks around the lake viewing all the beautiful homes. We also enjoyed the two outdoor pools and tennis courts. It was great being so close to beaches (five-minute drive or you could easily ride your bicycle).
The condo was very clean, well-appointed and spacious. We especially enjoyed the lanai and private gas barbecue. The owners were very easy to deal with, respecting our privacy but readily available to answer any questions we had.
This was my first time renting a condo in Florida and we will certainly be back. Our happiest time was arriving and the saddest time was leaving. The weather was absolutely gorgeous!
We enjoyed having you stay at our condominium. You were both gracious and took good care of our belongings. We look forward to having you back. Sincerely, Larry and Linda
Great Florida vacation spot
My wife and I stayed in this beautiful Vanderbilt Lakes condominium for the month of April, 2015. The owner met us on the first day and was very helpful providing information about the unit and the surrounding property. The master bedroom is very large and the second bedroom and the den provide ample space for a comfortable stay. The lanai is very comfortable, especially in the evening. The unit was very clean and very well maintained. Vanderbilt Lakes is perfectly located near the Gulf beaches, Route 41 and Interstate 75. Very easy access to restaurants and shopping without facing traffic congestion. The unit and its owner truly deserve a 5-Star rating and we highly recommend this condo unit for a stay in Bonita Springs.
Patrick and Amy,
It was a pleasure having you as our guest for the month of April. We look forward to you staying with us in the future. Thank you for the five star rating. Regards, Larry and Linda
