New Replica Circa 1940 Fishermans Bongalow On The Bay, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

Wind down to Island Time on beautiful Historic Matlacha Island.

The dock features fish cleaning table & world class fishing, many large fish are caught off our dock yearly, such as Snook, Red Fish, Trout, Black Drum, Snapper, etc. You can also be entertained while watching the Dolphins play. Birding is very popular on the island, as there are numerous sightings of Bald Eagles, Roseate Spoonbills, Ospreys, & countless variety of wading birds. You can relax & explore Matlacha Bay with kayaks available for rent, one door down. Just steps from your front door, you will find our whimsical, historic village with all of it's unique shops, art galleries & restaurants. This island is one of a kind, suspended back in time.

Fantastic Time, Lovely Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning home, we fell in love with it as soon as we drove in and walked through the garden and through the front door. The pictures and description of the home are accurate. The bathrooms are top notch with plenty of room for storage along with the kitchen.. I am very particular about my bed & bedding and loved the comfortable bed. Everything was so tidy and so clean. Great place to walk, very centrally located to all the shops and restaurants and the evenings are quite in that location. Communication with Nancy was professional, efficient, very friendly and prompt. This house is amazing and kept in perfect condition. Bravo and thank you to the owners for sharing this special place.

This house could not have been more perfect for us. Everything in the house was in excellent condition and YES the previous reviews are accurate, it's better than pictured. The owners take great pride in their home & garden; and the house is very clean and well kept. All the little details and touches did not go unnoticed and it felt like home away from home.

I must say, the location is unbeatable! We walked or used the guest bikes to all the island restaurants and shops, we also enjoyed kayaking and lots of fishing with our rental boat which we docked at the house. We found ourselves quite entertained with the variety of beautiful birds observed from the house's dock, it's a total 'Audubon Experience'.

Thank you again Nancy for making the process so easy, being so accommodating and welcoming us to your lovely house, a true representation of island life. We're already planning our next visit.

A Phenomenal Home in an Unbeatable Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this gorgeous home from the moment we arrived. First off, we were delighted to see the property not only matched the pictures on the website it was even better. The home was impeccably clean, right down to the large windows overlooking the waterfront. Absolutely stunning property. Our days were filled with sightseeing, boating, fishing. Everything was close and convenient. Some days we just relaxed and fished from the dock. Tropical birds of all kinds visit the properties waterfront, many roseate spoonbills and we were amazed when we saw eagles. The owners could not have been nicer! We had everything we needed! Just come and be ready to get relaxed and lose track of the days! .Without hesitation we can say this is a rental we absolutely loved.

A Heavenly Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My daughter & I thoroughly enjoyed our week at this island house. This home was so clean and comfortable, we loved the furnishings, decor and the beds were great, as well as in the perfect location for exploring the area. This private house is surrounded by a fence and topped off with beautiful trees, foliage, & a gorgeous display of orchids. Every morning we sat on the dock with a cup of coffee & watched the dolphins chasing after their meal, wow, we saw lot's of dolphins. We walked to all the restaurants and shops on the island and always ended our days at the ice cream shop. It's so nice to find a true home away from home. It was a wonderful getaway, for our mother-daughter time together. We have reserved next yrs. visit. Many thanks for your kindness & special place.

Everything We Wanted... & More!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to spend quality time with family! This adorable island home (situated in a very cool little island town) was perfect for our small group of four. My husband loves fishing and rarely has the chance to enjoy time away. We were thrilled to have a private dock right on the water with plenty of other waterways nearby for loads of fishing fun. As if that wasn't enough, we were so close to the Sanibel and Captiva beaches that it was like having two vacations in one! We fished a few days (and caught a huge Snook, Redfish, Trout, and even a Shark!) and enjoyed the beaches a couple of days. There was plenty of down time and excellent dining at near by Blue Dog and Sandy Hook Fish & Rib House (right across the street!)... And don't forget Great Licks Ice Cream shop for dessert! What made the trip so pleasant was the comfortable quarters that Nancy and Mike provided. The place has all of the amenities you need for a group of four -- including a double shower in the master bath, large walk-in master closet, beautiful decor, a kitchen with new appliances and a fabulous deck overlooking the water -- the photos don't quite do the place justice. Nancy is a kind, conscientious hostess who welcomed us with a tour of the house, explaining every detail. The shops in town are fun and the people are friendly. We had an amazing time out on a chartered fishing trip with Capt. Erik Flett of Native Attitude -- highly recommended for anyone who wants to experience fishing out on Pine Island Sound. Thanks Nancy & Mike for opening your doors to us in Matlacha! We'd love to return again some day!! (One small bit of advice... bring bug spray during rainy season :)

Spectacular Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I returned to this rental cottage for the second time, after our wonderful first visit last year, with our daughter & son in law.

The house is very comfortable, clean & strikingly beautiful, interior and exterior. As soon as the front door opens, you feel renewed. The ideal location is surrounded by restaurants, galleries & shops, not to mention the eagles, rosette spoonbills and sea life.

We ate out during our stay & visited the new restaurant on the island, Blue Dog. We had breakfast & dinner there and highly recommend it. Matlacha has wonderful selections of eateries.

We explored the neighboring islands on this trip and had a very nice day at the beach, upper North Captiva Beach. From Pineland Marina, we took a ferry ride 'Island Girl Charters' 20 min. trip to the beach. A family of dolphins followed our ferry the entire way, what a memorable moment for us. The beach is lovely and it is not crowded. There is also a nice restaurant on this island.

We also visited Ft. Myers and took the Edison Estate tour. Wonderful history, estate & grounds on the waterfront. This tour is highly recommended.

This second visit to the Matlacha house and visiting the surrounding areas, was a delightful trip. We are planning our third visit.
