Clean, comfortable, inviting and very relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on Sunday afternoon after a very long two day drive from NJ to a warm welcome note and bottle of wine from the owner!
The cottage is exactly as pictured, clean and maintained.

We enjoyed that we could come back after a day exploring to grill our dinner out on the deck, eat, relax with a glass of wine watching the sun go down. You also do not need to drag a boatload of clothes with you, if flying a carry on will be sufficient as there is a full size washer and dryer.

I would recommend this property to friends or family and if ever I vacation in Matlacha again I would see if this property was available before booking some where else.

After we left received a voicemail from the owner as my cell was off thanking us for leaving the place as we found it, our security deposit was refunded within days after leaving.

As far as attractions it is worth the drive up to Sarasota to the Ringling museum, also the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford museum, right next to each other, in Fort Myers was interesting. Matlacha has a nice little park with fishing pier you can walk to from the cottage.

We went to Berts but Micelli's became our Happy Hour place. Music every night, good food, great staff and reasonable pricing.

Wish I was still there.

clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
A welcomed and restful stay in a very peaceful, quite area with friendly neighbors. The back deck was a wonderful place to relax. Our grand kids had a fun time catching a few fish. It was clean and comfortable. Lots of places to eat and shop with in walking distance. The owner was very caring and went out of the way to make us comfortable. I will miss the back deck. Will recomend to frinds and family.

Darling cottage on cutest little island...

  • 5 of 5
This island cottage on a canal was perfect for a kayaking and canoeing nature adventure. The home is well furnished and complete even with a back deck BBQ. The owner is very sensitive to his guests having a good time and checked in to make sure all was going well. Neighbors and businesses were quite friendly and helpful and there was plenty of evening entertainment within walking distance of home. I had a great time there and have no hesitations in recommending this place to other travelers to this area.

Friendly Greeting and Welcome by Owner

  • 5 of 5
The owner met and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and provided us with lots of information about the area. He was readily available during our stay to help us and answer questions.

Ideal location short walk from many quaint shops and the Matlacha Inlet. The area is an ideal location because it is quiet yet close to lots of activities. Great seafood restaurants, several with live music provided by local bands and musicians. To take a stroll back in history walk along the main road and duck in and out of the brightly painted little shops that can provide you with every non-essential item. If you do not want to stroll the main street you can kick back and enjoy the peace and quiet sitting on the screened front porch or lounging on the back deck over-looking the canal.

Fresh fish and seafood readily available and can be grilled on the back porch and enjoyed at home, if you prefer to cook for yourself.

Wonderful Vacation which we will repeat next year, if possible.
