I call Baltimore MD my spiritual home. I travel all over North America for work and spend my life exploring..........interested in nearly every thing.
The apartment was just as we expected. Very clean upon arrival and we enjoyed the historic area of Old Bonita Springs. We fell in love with the Survey Cafe, where we got to know the owners who treated us as family.
We were sorry to leave the hideaway, as the weather was perfect. Returning to Pennsylvania and all the cold weather and snow was such a shock!!
Thanks Bruce Paul for everything!!! Your sister and brother-in-law were a joy to talk to as well.
This was the perfect AirBnB experience. The apartment is totally charming, exactly as pictured and described, and immaculate. The full kitchen had everything we needed to eat in and save a little money. Unlike some other reviews, the lack of internet didn't bother us a bit.
We spent our days out - lots to do and see within an easy drive - and then we'd return "home" with movies from the local Redbox for evenings in. We loved the ease and privacy of coming and going as we pleased. A perfect home base for exploring the area. Highly recommend!
Escaped from wintery St. Louis for a long weekend in the sun and Bonita Springs did not disappoint! Bruce's hideaway is not far from the Ft. Meyers airport and more importantly it is not far from the beach and several lovely state parks. We did our long run through Lovers Key State Park - it was idyllic. We saw many shore birds off Sanibel Island. There are many restaurants in the area- we enjoyed Survey Key for breakfast and A Table Apart for dinner. The area is quiet and peaceful and we found some time to lounge on the patio. The apartment had what we needed - the washer/dryer was very much appreciated. Love the retro decor. Thanks Bruce!
This small home was a perfect escape while in Florida. It was clean and very comfortable for two people. I enjoyed the hi fi radio, and the outdoor patio in this quiet neighborhood. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking.
We did use the french cafe down the street for internet access, but wifi would be an excellent addition.
We were three German students traveling around Florida for a month. We loved staying in this beautiful place. It is big enough for three people and the apartment is well equipped, even has a washing machine and a dryer for use. We loved the fact that the apartment was in a safe and quiet and friendly neighborhood. We stayed in Bonita springs for a week, besides walking around Bonita Springs we also did day trips to Fort Myers and Naples and took our chance to spend a whole day in the Everglades, which we highly recommend doing while there.
Even though Bruce was out of town during our stay, it was easy to communicate with him - that was great!
Thank you for a great time in this nicely decorated apartment in which we felt at home straight away! :)
We spent 4 nights at Bruces place, and loved how spacious it was. The kitchen was big, provided everything we need, and it was great being able to use the washing machine and dryer! The bed is nice and comfy, and the living room was nice to relax after a day of exploring. I loved the decor! We also had a chat with the neighbours, they were very friendly. Bonita Springs Beach is a short ride by car away, and it is great to watch the sunsets there - watch out for the "Beach access" signs, we usually got lucky to find a parking spot there.
Only thing that was missing really was wifi, being from Europe it is always helpful to have access to information, and if it is only the weather forecast.
Communication with Bruce was ever so friendly, and he always answered very fast. Thank you Bruce!
Bruce Paul's house was a nice surprise to us. Off course we had seen on the internet how nicely it was decorated but we didn't realise how much space it had. After two airbnb's with really nice but quite small rooms this was a luxury!
We had a good time in Bonita Springs, there's lots to see and do. A few tips: Edison& Ford Winter Estate in Fort Myers, much worth while. The Koreshan state historic site (also Fort Myers), cheap entrance fee, interesting place and a good place to experience the tropics.
During our stay the air conditioning broke down. After a call to Bruce Paul he managed to get a repair man on our doorstep in less that 30 minutes. That's what we call care-for-your guests, thanks again Bruce Paul!
great central location with easy access to naples through ft meyers, lots of restaurants nearby, beach close, shopping everywhere. the place is beautiful, comfortable, peaceful and even has a nice canal behind the property to cool you along the bamboo privacy patch.
everything we needed was provided and the host was extremely helpful. a gem!
A wonderful place to stay. Very comfy and clean. We had had a great time in beautiful Bonita Springs. Highly recommended!!!
We enjoyed it very much to stay in this lovely appartment. The appartement is furnished and prepared with taste and love. We liked it. The neighbourhood was safe and quiet. A good location for trips to the beaches, Naples and so on. We realy recommend it.
