Our Bonita Beach home is located near the Collier County/Lee County border, in Caroland, a peninsula of Little Hickory Island on Estero Bay, comprised of exclusive million dollar private homes.
We are only 2/10 mile direct straight line distance from the Gulf of Mexico but are quietly nestled near end of the unique residential peninsula.
Our deep-water private boat dock provides access to the Gulf of Mexico through a choice of passes, the largest of which is New Pass at Lovers Key. The dock’s outer section is 24 ft. in length. Our tenants may motor or sail their boat from our dock to explore Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve and the Imperial River, or cruise via the Gulf of Mexico, past Fort Myers Beach to Sanibel and Captive Islands.
We provide a small boat for tenant's use. Oars for boat, life jackets, and fishing rods are provided. Boat, kayak, paddle board and bicycle rentals are available nearby.
Our tenants view Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve from each room of this unique home, quietly situated near the end of this peninsula, but only 6/10 mile (by road) to the Gulf of Mexico at Beach Access # 5 on Hickory Blvd (at the end of our street) and enjoy viewing sunrise and sunset over Estero Bay and wildlife including; bottlenose dolphin, manatee, egret, pelican, heron, osprey, bald eagle.
We believe the unique location of our Bonita Beach home directly on Estero Bay offers unique proximity to the estuary, aquatic preserve, beaches, and navigation to the Gulf of Mexico. While located in the quiet private residential neighborhood on a peninsula of Little Hickory Island, it is a short drive to services, restaurants, shops, attractions, etc. in Bonita Springs, Fort Meyers Beach, Estero, and Naples.
From our home, tenants may drive North on Hickory Blvd to Carl E. Johnson State Park at Lover's Key, and onto Fort Myers Beach or drive South to Barefoot Beach Preserve Park.
