Come stay at our Old Florida cottage located just a short 1 1/2 miles from the Gulf and our local Bonita Beach. Our cottage has the hard to find charm of Old Florida with the modern conveniences of today. You're going to enjoy our gorgeous bathroom

The space

Let me start off by saying our guest cottage is amazing! We recently completed a total renovation...take a look at the new bathroom (it feels like a mini spa) and whitewashed wood plank tile flooring (URL HIDDEN) beautiful!

We're located just off of Bonita Beach Road, west of 41, WEST of Vanderbilt Road in Bonita Springs, FL...you can bike to the beach on our Jamis Taxi beach bikes. It only takes a few minutes to get there on a bike as the beach is about a mile away. Close to everything...food, shopping, art galleries!

Attached to our main house, our "Old Florida" gem is a separate 385 square foot (35 square meters) guest house with its own entrance, kitchen, bath, laundry and large screened lanai. It is located on the right side of the main house (see the picture). The screened lanai adds a ton of extra space giving you a total indoor/outdoor living space of 565 square feet (52 square meters). And when you count the yard, you have 4000 square feet (371 square meters) of space to relax on! It is perfect for 1 or 2 people.

The main house and guest cottage are separated by a breezeway and locked exterior doors which allows complete privacy. We live in the main house full time. We're in our early 40's and have no pets or children.

The cottage is furnished with two extremely comfortable twin XL electric adjustable beds which are pushed together, making a king sized bed. There is a beautiful cedar armoire that you can hang your clothes in.

You can park your car under the carport in the rear of the cottage.

Relax in the hammock under the oak trees in the back yard. The back yard overlooks a large green space which gopher tortoises inhabit. You'll probably get to see them in the yard munching on the plants!

Included: linens, towels, kitchen utensils, coffee maker, beach supplies, beach bikes, fast high speed internet (75+Mbps wi-fi), cable television, free Netflix access and all utilities. Full heating and cooling. There is a flat panel LCD/DVD television combo mounted on the wall in the living area. It's fully furnished and has everything you need...just bring your clothes!

We had a wonderful time in the at Libbys'. The cottage is amazing and we really loved it. It's equipped with everything you need for a lovely stay. The beaches a very close and we loved the barefoot beach in Bonita. We would come back anytime. It was so nice to need John and Libby.

We stayed at Libby and John's place for 9 nights and it was all around a great time. First of all Libby and John are very friendly hosts u will be happy to get in contact with. We had a great evening talking to them while eating traditional "Key Lime Pie" and they gave us so much support what to do in the area (we definetly recommend the segway tour in naples ;-) ). They have great knowledge of where u should go depending on what u wanna spend your vacation time on. Their little "Beach House" ist just a beautiful place to live in and it's truly like Libby says in her Exposé: everything u might possibly need for your vacation is there. We have had a well needed and good working air condition, a nice opportunity to cook, a private and mosquito free veranda, beach chairs, an umbrella, several cooling boxes and even 2 bikes to go take a ride if u want. What u cannot see on the pictures is all the effort they put in to make the guest house as friendly and charming as possible. Its very nicely arranged up to the Details to make yourself feel as comfortable as possible. Overall we enjoyed the time we could stay there and really recommend it. Thanks for everything.

Nous avons adoré notre séjour, nos hôtes étaient plus que disponible, tout était dans la condition qu'on nous avait décrit, plus que satisfaisant. On avait accès à tout le nécessaire: pour la plage , la cuisine , le lavage, la cuisson au BBQ et même de beaux vélos . Bref c'est un A++ sur toute la ligne
