Beautiful and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the property over the 4th of July and our family had a fantastic vacation. The home is well equipped for cooking and entertaining. I enjoyed the boat lift, under water light and watching the tarpon rolling in the canal as I drank my coffee. My kids loved the hammock and riding on the provided kayaks. My wife and I loved watching the sunsets sitting under the tiki hut. The owners of the property were great to deal with and I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to escape reality.

The perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this home! As soon as we arrived, we looked about the beautifully open, nicely decorated, and clean home then walked out to take in the relaxing feel from the Tiki overlooking the canal. My husband and kids enjoyed fishing from the seawall. They caught a wide variety of fish, one that was a mystery! The home was clean and well equipped, the beds were comfortable and it was well stocked with towels for our many trips to the surrounding beaches of Sanibel, Cayo Casta, and Fort Myers Beach. We also spent part of a day at the Pine Island Public Pool. The restaurants and galleries certainly added to the tropical feel of the area. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, comfortable and convenient home for the week we were there. We hope to come back again and will recommend it to anyone looking for a tropical get away!

Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful home this is. The place was bigger than expected. It is very well maintained and clean. The house was stocked with everyday needs that came in handy. The dock is amazing and the kids had a great time trying to catch fish. It is a nice quiet and friendly neighborhood. We drove to Bunche Beach and Sanibel Beach for a few days. The bikes are great and we used them to explore Matlacha. The kids loved the paddle board and the one sit on kayak. I would give this a 5 star if it wasn't for the bug bites we all got from sitting on the patio at night. The no see ums were terrible. It is nothing to do with the house, more the location.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Matlacha. House is very clean and well-equipped. Quiet neighborhood and funky little town pretty much sum it up. This truly is a boater's and fisherman's paradise. You will not be disappointed in this home - just relax and enjoy!

Fantastic Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described. Beautiful, comfortable, modern appliances and kitchen. Beautiful backyard, we spent a lot of time in the backyard. Took beautiful pictures of Ospreys that would land on the boat dock and eat their meals, along with many other birds. The owners, Paul & Lisa are wonderful, they will go out of their way to make sure you have a great vacation. We took day trips to Venice Beach & Sanibel they are very close. The town of Matlacha is so beautiful, we love all the different colors of the buildings. We found that the neighbors were so friendly and would stop by and visit if they saw us outside. Be sure to explore all of Pine Island, we found an awesome restaurant on the south end called, Woody's Island Rum & Grille-great food, great service. I would highly recommend this property and it is definitely on our do it again list. Wish I could post some pictures for you to see.

A Week in Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home allowed you to relax and enjoy life. From the minute we opened the front door and entered the open main room, we knew this was a place to kick off your shoes and be comfy. Everything was designed for comfort and ease. And the view of the patio and dock were breathtaking whether it was morning or night. We love escaping to Pine Island and your house gave us the true escape but with all the comforts of home.

The fishing in Matlacha is world renown. Right off the dock snook, tarpon, trout can be caught and out in the pass complete the slam with redfish. Osprey fly overhead and palm trees complete a restful environment. For some activity take your boat or the Pine Island Ferry to Caya Costa to walk the beach and shell and cool off with a swim. The ferry will also take you to Cabbage Key for lunch and hike around the island and up the water tower for unparalleled views. Locally, walking and biking to the local shops and restaurants is a great way to see the area.
