We loved our stay here. The home was bright, clean and had everything we needed.

We had a great experience at this home. It was lacking nothing. Our six year old daughter had a great time chasing the lizards outside and taking pics of the darling metal sculptures that are all over the paperwork. I would recommend this place for both couples and families.

We loved this cute little house. 4 adults sharing one bathroom was a bit of a challenge.

  • 4 of 5

The property was beautiful! We enjoyed walking around the yard and looking at the plants and the yard art. We wished we could buy it! We were there for our son's wedding so we didn't get to enjoy all of the amenities. We would love to go again sometime when we can spend more time and enjoy building a fire and riding bikes to the beach!

Perfect beach cottage, immaculate and beautifully decorated

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience we had in Bonita springs and especially at the hibiscus. Everything you could need is here, bring your groceries and bathing suit. You can ride bikes to the beach, we got a lot of great exercise. We rode them to Sharkey's for pizza that was delicious. Also Publix is within riding distance as well. I highly recommend this property and Bonita springs. This time of year it's quiet and we had the beach all to ourselves at one point.

A slice of Florida paradise, pretty gardens, peaceful, 5 minute drive to beach

  • 5 of 5

All the conveniences of home; so much better then staying in a hotel, fully equipped kitchen and big screened porch to sit in. Owners nice and helpful if you need something, but otherwise you don't see them except maybe working in the garden. I would stay again!
