About the property

Walk or bike to restaurants, shopping, the beach; 2 BR, 1 BA

The atmosphere is cozy, beach cottage chic, and tropical, set in a lovely garden; a perfect retreat. Sit on a garden bench or in your private screened patio / porch and enjoy the bougainvillea, hibiscus, jasmine, alamanda, roses and bird of paradise blooming on the premises. Free use of bicycles and kayaks. (For Kayak use you must be able to transport the kayaks yourself on your own vehicle to the bay waters.)

The quiet neighborhood is just one mile to beautiful Gulf of Mexico Bonita Springs beaches.

Bicycle and pedestrian friendly for beach, restaurants and

shopping. Just 2 blocks from busy Bonita Beach Road. Public trolley bus is also available 1/4 mile. We are West of 41, off Bonita Beach Road, a desirable area. Although the entire mailing area is known as Bonita Springs, this area West of 41 is also called Bonita Beach.

Fully furnished; living room has a sofa, fully equipped kitchen

and 2 B.R.'s, both with queen beds, plus a roll-away twin bed is available. Tile floors throughout. Lovely Cobblestone paths and courtyard

Park your flip flops here! Bring your luggage and move right in to start having a sunny, fun and relaxing time in Beautiful Bonita.

We have two more vacation rentals, on the same property, Tropical Breeze and Starfish Garden which may also be available; same amenities, same square footage, etc... So, if Hibiscus Cottage is taken, we may offer you Tropical Breeze or Starfish Garden and can email you photos if requested. Each vacation home is part of four 'attached villas'. on a quiet residential neighborhood street, (the old fashion name would have been duplexes'). The property is well cared for and each home is very private with separate entry areas, private porches, private laundry, etc...Free parking for two vehicles per home. Ground level property, with only the thresehold step up; no stairs.

Pristine, Cozy Cottage by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Hibiscus Cottage before, and have never been disappointed. Very clean, comfortable & peaceful for our family. Very close to the beach, shopping & any amenities that you could ask for. Some days we just like to stay around the house and relax ... now that's a vacation! Thanks to Dana for always being so gracious on our visits. We can't wait to return in December!

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at the Hibiscus Cottage in Bonita Springs, FL. It was very clean and well stocked. The owner has thought of everything! It is very homey & comfortable. There is even room to cook & entertain so you can save money on eating out. Very close to the beach, shopping areas and restaurants. We love this quiet little spot and can't wait to return!
