Fisherman's Paradise, Matlacha, Florida

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Grouper Room at Fisherman's Paradise, Matlacha, Florida. We enjoyed every minute of it. Even during Hurricane Matthew. The room was nice and clean and very cozy for the two of us. We sat out on the back deck in the mornings and evenings enjoying the peace and quiet around us. We walked through town one day and enjoyed all of the shops. We were close to our family, which was very important to us. It was quiet at night. Of course, we were the only ones in the place, but when we did have neighbors, we never heard them. We met the owner and we will very impressed by him. He was very welcoming to us and hoped we were enjoying our stay. We would diffidently stay there again and would recommend Fisherman's Paradise to any friends and family who were going to stay in Matlacha. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay during our vacation.

Quiet, clean

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit friends that lived on the same street. It was great to have a place to go to at the end of the day. Our room was quiet and clean. It was perfect for what we needed it for. We will stay there again in the future.

fishing village turned artist colony

  • 5 of 5

This property is small and cozy and it was just right for my wife and I. Good food and drink and art shops all within walking distance. Nice deck right on the river perfect for relaxing. Bicycles and kayaks provided for our use. We would return anytime that we're looking for a quiet and relaxing but centrally located place to stay.

A Real Charmer!

  • 5 of 5

Artsy, eclectic, clean, cute and charming! Wonderful location and within walking distance to "everything" - Matlacha is a "blast from the past" with awesome shops, bars and restaurants and way too cool artists in the area! The rental unit had everything and more peeps would need to enjoy a totally relaxing and chilling vacation. The outside deck with its bbq grill, loungers, table and chairs and the fishing pier were all extra added pluses! Of course, then you have a canoe and kayaks at your disposal too with immediate access to the water!! What more could one ask for? Judi and Phil were "on call" no matter what time of day/night and couldn't have been more pleasant, informative and helpful and answered any questions or took care of any concerns we had - which we didn't have any issues at all with the unit! Try it once and you will be a return guest, over and over I guarantee it! Thanks for making it available to me and my family - we will return many, many more times! Sandy

From the Owner

The time seems to stand still in Matlacha...often called "Small Key West", the cute fishing village is THE insider-tipp for Florida-vacationers. Away from any kind of trouble or hustle everybody appears to be serene and content - "island time" by silently agreement!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : RSW Fort Myers at 30 Miles Car: recommended

Matlacha ("MAT-la-shay") is located on a small island in the Gulf of Mexico between Pine Island and the mainland in the southwest of Florida, directly adjacent to Cape Coral. The small village with a population of almost 700, is connected by several bridges and situated in the area of the "National Wildlife Refuge" with its 23 small islands and a size of 2 square kilometres.

The time seems to stand still in Matlacha...often called "Small Key West", the cute fishing village is THE insider-tipp for Florida-vacationers. Away from any kind of trouble or hustle, everybody appears to be serene and content - "island time" by silent agreement!

Reaching the village entrance, the brightly colourful printed cottages catches someone's eyes. They are as individual as the inhabitants. A lot of art galleries and small boutiques line the main road of the historic part of Matlacha. Many bars, restaurants, and the most popular ice cream shop invite you to sample regional delicacies.

Matlacha is the best place to be if you are searching for a quiet little place where you can relax! Nearly each house is built on the waterfront. Matlacha is one of the best fishing grounds in the world. There are countless possibilities to discover the surrounding area: during a boat trip to the islands off the coast with deserted beaches or while paddling in your kayak exploring the amazing animals and plants. Fisherman gets their money´s worth and the local fisherman might even teach you some new tricks.

Enjoy your vacation in one of the most popular destinations in Florida...
