Really enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

This home had some private pool and hot tub. Right across the street had its own dock where you could park your boat or fish. The whole family had a great time and we would definitely recommend this place.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit during the month of March. Everything we needed was in the kitchen, and there were plenty of towels and linens for our visit. The lower level was a wonderful added area with the pool and hot tub, even though the pool was not heated. We enjoyed watching the osprey family across the street, and one of them even paid us a visit on the deck and allowed us to take a few photos.

Unique and beautiful setting with easy access to the water.

  • 5 of 5

For boaters and fisherman, you could not design a better setup. We rented a boat from Four Winds Marina (a 2 minute car ride from the property) and kept it at the property's dock for most of our visit. We had easy access to the amazing beaches of Cayo Costa and Boca Grande. The owner was very responsive to any and all questions we had.

Paradise Nest=Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed from 1/28/17 -2/25/17 at paradise nest and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. For the first two weeks it was just my wife and I. The 2nd two weeks we were joined by 2 other couples. If you enjoy fishing and boating there is no finer location. We loved being able to get in the kayaks and be catching fish within minutes. There are a number of really good places to eat nearby or you have the option to cook for yourself. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a charcoal grill which we used frequently. In terms of amenities there is a hot tub that will fit 2 comfortably 3 with a squeeze. A swimming pool that was a bit too cold to use during our stay, 2 ocean sit on top kayaks (seat backs needed some creative bolstering), and 4 bicycles which I'm afraid are in need of repair. My wife and I enjoyed the master bedroom, in particular waking up to beautiful sunrises each day and the calls from the nesting ospreys just across the street. The rooms are as described so I won't go into that. For us the location was everything. The owners were very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. Bokeelia is a great place to spend some time and this is a great place to stay in Bokeelia. One other thing. It doesn't hurt to have a few shrimp boats docked across the lagoon. We gorged on shrimp every time they came in. Would we stay here again? YES.

Perfect location, absolutely wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples and a single man and we were delighted with this house. After rinsing off the salt water, a dip in the pool was just the ticket to cool down for the evening. Ceiling fans in the enclosed pool space kept the area cool enough for social gathering even in July.

The kitchen is very well appointed, large enough for more than one chef, and open to the dining area. The house was very clean, with a design affording privacy when desired, while offering a center living area which is large, open and welcoming, Décor is very charming. The beds and linens are exceptionally high-quality and comfortable.

We brought our boat and the dock was handy with easy access to deep water. We also made use of the kayaks which came with the house; they were fun and just the ticket for private exploration.

The bottom line is that this place had everything we needed and even more than we hoped for. We wouldn't change a thing and this will always be our first choice of places to stay whenever we are in the area.

Thank you so much to Jeannie and Geoff.
