Why Martina Streng chose Matlacha

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were lucky to have found this gem ! Charity, the property manager was proficient and friendly - her number one priority was the comfort of all guests. Our accommodations in the Snook Suite were more than adequate and well stocked with plenty of pots, pans and dishes. As there was no cable, we were thrilled with the opportunity to enjoy some peace and quiet on the deck with the other guests. It was a great chance to meet and enjoy the company of some great people from Germany and Canada. The grill on the deck was perfect for some spring time grilling - I don't know what it was but the fresh Florida street corn we made was some of the best Our suite was clean, comfortable and well attended. It was clear that our hosts number one priority was our peace of mind. The small pontoon boat that was available for rent was reasonable and relaxing. It was an easy process that included instruction and review with an extremely pleasant and experienced local - Gene. He was patient and thorough and made sure we understood the waterways, local rules and was able to give us some great insight as to how to get the most out of our day. This will be a must return for another great escape!

  • 5 of 5

The place was great, the location made you think of the Florida Keys. The neighbors there were very friendly The staff was very accommodating. We have a wheelchair bound son with special needs and we were allowed late checkout which allowed us time to meet his needs. The fishing was great!!! We definitely will return.

Relaxing and quaint.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was so nice to come back at the end of a day and just relax on the dock. In the mornings we would sit on the dock for breakfast and watch Dolphins and the sea otter. Enjoyed walking up and doing some shopping. Couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable and relaxing week. The cottage was neat clean and very quaint.

Relaxing waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly paradise in one of the best towns in Florida. The huge patio and dock overlooking the water is incredible. We saw manatee and tons of birds from this little haven. The accommodations were simple and clean - everything our family of three needed. We will be coming back next year for sure!

A Fisherman’s Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The Snook Suite was exactly as described - very clean and colorful. The property manager, Charity is very friendly and extremely knowledge about the area. We went to Super Wal-Mart and bought a 7 day fishing license. Then, we went fishing at the Matlacha bridge for a few days. We went kayaking, visited the shops, took boat rides, and more. I recommend taking a day trip on Tropic Star in Bokeelia to visit Cabbage Key and Cayo Costa Island. Perfect location - close to everything we want to do and more. We will definitely stay at the Snook Suite and visit the area again. I hope Matlacha keep its Old Florida charm.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Every thing was handled on a very professional basis. The Manager, Charity, was excellent to deal with. Unlike other VRBO properties we experienced, instructions were outlined in a correct and informative manner. Probably will stay there again.

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...
