This Side Retreat is an artist's retreat with ceramics studio and Gulf access. It is a place for ceramic artists and ceramic lovers to take a break and have a studio to create in. This potter's retreat in coastal, SW Florida is located in the historic town of Bonita Springs, which is situated between Ft. Myers and Naples. The Gulf access villa includes a ceramic studio and kayaks to use while your pots are drying. An amazing opportunity for artists to get away from it all and still be rooted in their creativity. We know that not everyone is into art and clay, and we welcome anyone to come and enjoy this space.

The home is modern and bright, decorated with art and craft that warms the space. It has two bedrooms and comfortably sleeps four. Enjoy relaxing on the lanai overlooking the private backyard. When the urge prompts you, head out to the studio to have some fun throwing pots on the wheel. The studio also has a great work table for slab and hand work. For those with some prior experience with clay, we even offer the use of our kiln. No matter what your level of experience, you will definitely have some fun getting your hands in clay. We encourage guests to try it out, but it's not a requirement! The main experience we would want for all guests is to have fun!

The backyard provides access to a canal that leads to the Imperial River of Bonita Springs. Take a paddle in one of the two sit on top kayaks or jump in the canoe and set off to explore the river. Heading up stream to the east on the river as it narrows you will discover cypress trees, lots of large Live Oaks, bamboo, and the darkening of the water under the canopy of trees. Heading west, the river widens and after passing some interesting residences along the river, you will find a beautiful system of bays and back waters. No matter which way you decide to explore, you should see some great wildlife. It's not unusual in the winter months to even see a manatee!

The home is a short drive to several great beaches. Barefoot beach is probably our favorite. It is a very natural beach that is lined with trees and brush. It is a rare thing to have such a natural beach so close to development and remain untouched. Walking down the beach you eventually run out of sand and are stopped by Wiggins Pass. Bonita Beach is also very nice, and Lover's Key State Park is amazing.

Bonita Springs offers a lot for the artist and art lover. The Bonita Springs Art League offers exhibitions and shows, as well as classes. The Promenade Shoppes provide a unique shopping experience. Riverside Park in Bonita also is a place to see artists working and showing their talents. The Imperial River runs through the park and is lined with refurbished old fishing cabins that have been turned into artist studios. The artists host special events throughout the year.

If you are into shopping, Coconut Point Mall is just to the north of Bonita in Estero. It has great shopping in addition to really nice dining options.

Outside of Bonita within an hour you can arrive at many great destinations that are well worth the drive. It's always fun to set out and find a new town, have a nice lunch, and then return home. We lay out some great examples of road trip options in the binder you will discover inside of our home.

This Side Retreat is a truly unique vacation rental. We absolutely love it there and are sure that you will too. Please let us know if you have any questions about it or the area.

Guests will have access to the home, studio, the Imperial River, and all the amenities that we offer including two bikes for cruising around.

We really want our guests to enjoy their stay in at This Side. In advance of their check-in we research to find out specifically events and happenings that our guests might enjoy. We make sure that guests get that insider info about the best restaurants, beaches, day trips, and specific events. We pull from many sources to find this info, and we are available for questions and input throughout our guest's stay.

The neighborhood that This Side is located in is really a perfect spot. It is located near a very popular park called Riverside Park. This park hosts numerous events throughout season for residents including art fairs and concert events. The park is full of mature old growth trees and is a nice short bike ride away. We supply bikes for your use during your stay. You can also kayak to this park. In addition, the recreation center is close by offering a pool, playground, tennis courts, basketball, and personalized physical training. The street is very quiet and ends at the river, so there isn't a lot of traffic noise. Everyone comments about how quiet it is. The beach is a short drive from it, and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby.

Wonderful, lovely experience. We stayed at This Side Retreat for a little over one week in December 2015. The hosts' description of their property is spot on. Their home is roomy and cozy and filled with whimsical art. We went kayaking almost every day (one day we spent at the Everglades, which is only 40 minutes away) and saw manatees, alligators, iguanas, and lovely vegetation. An added bonus was the use of the hosts' clay studio. We used the pottery wheel to make some creative pots -- not professional quality, but we had a lot of fun. The neighborhood is lovely -- a quiet residential street close to a downtown area. The hosts supplied bikes which we used to explore downtown and the surrounding area. The hosts provided useful information such as maps, restaurant recommendations (loved The Survey), and local activities. I really can't say enough good things about our experience. I would not hesitate to visit again and in fact I am hoping I get another opportunity to book this lovely property. And, the provided wifi is great as I spent the first few days finishing up a work project.

Ed and Kate treated us like family, only better! Many places are just rentals but this place was comfortable very clean and felt like home. It is located in a safe, quite area. The owners are artists and their excellent work is a delight to see. We cannot say enough positive things about This Side Retreat or its gracious hosts!

We are professional artists that sell our ceramic works across the country and internationally. Although we love living in the mountains of Swannanoa, NC near Asheville, we truly enjoy Florida and all that it offers. We have designed This Side Retreat to be the perfect getaway …
