About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our rates and calendar are always current. Please take a look at both before sending your request. Thank you!!

The Tarpon at Yellowdog is a newly redecorated chic and colorful 2BR/1.5BA waterfront cottage. It is by far one of the most stylish waterfront cottages in town (tied with it's neighbor, our Redfish cottage).

The Tarpon has a queen bedroom with a half bath, and a large private room with a daybed that may be used as 1 or 2 twins, or combined to be a king sized bed. A large HDTV is in the living room, which is open with the kitchen. The cottage has a full kitchen with large refrigerator, JenAir gas stove, microwave, coffee maker and all kitchen utensils. A large full bathroom with a garden tub is in the cottage, plus there is an additional shower and half bath right around the corner outside.

Please note that since our rentals are pet friendly, we may not recommend staying with us if you have significant, uncontrolled allergies to pet dander. We make every effort to thoroughly clean between guests, but cannot guarantee the cottage will be 100% free of pet dander.

About Yellowdog: Yellowdog is a destination in itself. We have 3 cozy individual cottages intimately tucked away behind a gate off of Pine Island Road. Our tropical landscaping, docks for your boat, fishing, or kayak launch, and the wide open water as your back yard will make you feel like you are miles away from everything. We are right next to Bert's Bar and Grill and across the street from Island Seafood - two of the best places to eat in Matlacha and they are right at your doorstep. Well behaved dogs are welcome to stay with you for an additional cleaning fee.

From Yellowdog you can easily walk to most of Matlacha's art galleries and restaurants.

For larger parties you may want to also rent the Redfish Cottage at Yellowdog -HomeAway #932390. This is a 1 1/2BR/1BA cottage right next door to the Tarpon. We also have a studio cottage available.

About Linda Seibert

We actively manage this gorgeous property and do whatever it takes to make sure our guests have a fantastic vacation!

Linda Seibert purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Linda Seibert chose Pine Island

There are no other properties in the area like ours. We have 3 cottages confined in a gated area, with kayaks and paddle boards, plenty of outdoor seating, boat slips, and views that will take your breath away. We love our 4 legged guests, and with our gated confines, they are free to roam safely.

What makes this cottage unique

Matlacha has many waterfront rental properties, but we have yet to see one that is as clean and tastefully decorated as ours. If you care about that sort of thing, we're your best choice! We are constantly improving the property like it's our home, because it will be someday!

Exceptional, spacious, tastefully decorated cottage

  • 5 of 5

Two couples shared this cottage for two nights, and this is by far the best short-term Florida rental we've ever had. It must be seen to be believed!

Great Cottage to get away and relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time at Matlacha and staying at the Tarpon cottage. I can't say enough good things about the place. The cottage is roomy, clean, all the amenities and great view of the water. The deck is awesome for a nighttime beverage or listening to the mullet jumping endlessly out of the water. It is close walking to several places to eat and shop. You get the full Matlacha experience staying at the Tarpon. I highly recommend it...

Amazing Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing trip! The cottage was extremly clean and we really enjoyed the back patio that overlooked the water. The owners were extremly welcoming and Burts next door is a great place to grab a bite to eat, enjoyed listening to the live music at Burts from the patio! Our two labs were welcomed with open arms which was also wonderful! Had a great time boating during our trip, the fishing was great and there are lots of places to boat to for lunch/dinner. I would HIGHLY recommed and we plan on rebooking for another vacation. Thanks so much for making us feel so welcomed!

Most enjoyable and relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our week at the Tarpon - accommodations were wonderful. The cottage is well equipped with everything you could possibly need - except for beer! Oh wait a minute - Bert's is right next door. The people of Matlacha and Pine Island are very friendly and always willing to chat and answer any questions you have. We are ready to move to the Island! Very enjoyable vacation!

Loved, loved, loved the cottage!

So cute and very well decorated. Nice to get away from the cold and snow for a week. Wish we could have stayed longer. Favorite part was the back deck. Stayed out there a lot. Thanks so much for letting us stay.
