Little Hickory Island a barrier island, essentially a small strip of land that runs south from the most western end of Bonita Beach Road to the north End of Hickory Boulevard before it curve right to Lover’s Key and Fort Myers Beach, Florida. The entire Bonita Beach area is Little Hickory Island. Where Bonita Beach begins at the turn from the point where Bonita Beach Road becomes Hickory Blvd is the public beach parking in Lee County, followed by Doc’s Beach House restaurant and another public parking lot. Headed North beyond the public access are Bonita Beach homes. Gulf front, residential homes, home sites and condominiums which stretch for approximately five miles.
Bonita Beach homes are coveted in this area due to the short supply of waterfront homes that are beachfront. Homes on Bonita Beach are considered gulf front, not ocean front.
The homes on Bonita Beach are considered luxury homes even though many of the “entry level” priced homes on Bonita Beach aren’t particularly large or of the reflective of the newest design or décor.
Bonita Beach real estate is about geography; location, location, location. The most modest of beachfront homes, even with a price over one million dollars, may be considered a tear down.
While single family homes on Bonita Beach run on the west side of Hickory Blvd. there are also homes for sale on the east side of Hickory Blvd. Homes may either be land-locked or they may back to a canal or the bay. Homes with bay views are preferred properties and often have access to deeper water for gulf access boating enthusiasts. The homes that are land locked still sell in high price points, per square foot, due to their proximity to the beach. There are 10 public beach accesses spanning the length of Bonita Beach so any home owner in the area may easily access Bonita Beach for sun and sand after a short walk.
Condominiums located in the Bonita Beach area located in two areas. Bonita Beach and Tennis Club is at the South End of the Island on the east side of Hickory.
Bonita Beach and Tennis are one bedroom efficiency units. At the north end of Hickory there are about a dozen gulf front condos plus several condo buildings that are waterfront facing the bay, Broadway Channel, mangrove estuaries and Battista Island.
There are only a select amount of communities in the Bonita Beach/Little Hickory Island area that are gated. Most of the homes and condos along Bonita Beach are in non-gated areas. Gated communities include Cape Hickory, Solenzara, Bonita Beach Club Condo, Dolphin Way Condo and Seascape Condo.
