Sports & Adventure Activities
Terrific getaway cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at The Coqui Palace. It was very clean, beautifully decorated, and so conveniently located. Being right along the canal was perfect and we enjoyed taking the kayak out. Scott was very accommodating. We had a great stay and will definitely be back when next visiting.
Great stay in Matlacha
The property is lovely, just as shown in the pictures. Beds are comfortable, large flat screen TV in the living area, plenty of room. Setting area on the channel was nice. Caught catfish! Dining at the local restaurants in the area is good and reasonably priced. Suggestion: cable/dish television and sharp kitchen knives.
Adorable and comfortable!
Very nice place! Furniture and beds very comfy! The location was awesome. Walking distance to everything! Very relaxing week! Thanks!
Our pleasure to host such nice people.
I loved my stay in Matlacha!
The best place we ever stayed! So much character and color. comfortable furniture, great showers. The bedding and towels smelled wonderful. The location was perfect. Within walking distance to so much.
Wonderful experience at the Coqui Palace
We just spent three days at the Coqui Palace in Matlacha, FL. We could not have been happier with our accommodations. The cottage was extremely clean and obviously well taken care of. Scott and Iliana have decorated and cared for this cottage as if it were their own home. It had a great island vibe - complete with coquis as decorations, adding to the tropical feel. It was well-equipped with all the amenities...a fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, even a high chair and pack-n-play for families with small children. It was in easy walking distance to Matlacha - right across the street from the Blue Dog, one of our favorites. It had outdoor seating so we could enjoy the end of the day sitting on the canal. We would highly recommend this cottage for other travelers. The Menards were easy and professional to work with, and the cottage was awesome. Thanks to Scott and Iliana for a great weekend in Matlacha!

Thanks for your kind words. We hope we get the privilege of being your host again soon.
Amazing space within walking distance to everything.
The home was wonderful. Great space and energy. Loved watching the wildlife on the canal and kayaking in the area. We could walk to shops, food and sunset. Great experience and Scott was friendly and available to answer any questions. Can't wait to return!
While being a world renowned fishing village, the area is also known for excellent kayaking, emerging artists, and excellent eateries and entertainment. In less than an hour you can be scouring the beaches of Sanibel or Captiva searching for the latest shells the tide has left behind. Of course, Vida de le Isla, is all about the relaxed island life, so you'll probably like to do a lot of 'nothing'.
