The Crab Shack is a 3-bedroom waterfront vacation rental that will remind you of sleeping on ship. With a master bedroom and two additional berth-like bedrooms, “the Shack” is perfect for a getaway with the kids (or grandkids!) Newly renovated bathroom and pristine kitchen appliances making staying a pleasure. Water views from the master bedroom and spacious breakfast room make catching the sunrise (and sunset) easy! Fish from the dock, or use the jet ski & kayak lift for your watersport adventures! An outdoor covered patio has a new gas grill, perfect for grilling burgers - or today's catch! Enjoy the local art scene, eat at famous restaurants, and recharge on the water. Whether you're on Matlacha for the wildlife - or to get away from your wild life - the Crab Shack is the perfect place to hang your hat!
Vida de la Isla translates Island Life. We feature 3 unique island vacation rental properties located on the world renowned, historic Matlacha Island.
Scott Menard purchased this bungalow in 2014
Matlacha is island life personified! No need to travel outside the USA, we're right here in sunny Florida.
The Crab Shack was perfect, it was like a Hyatt on wheels. It was stocked with everything you could need and was very clean. The location of the Crab Shack was great and it was only a short walk to everything to do in Matlacha. Thanks for everything Scott!
The owners were great to deal with, and the process with VRBO was super easy. We booked last minute and were so glad we could find such a cute place to stay. The owners do a great job keeping it clean and updated. They have done a great job with the space. The kids loved sleeping in their own little cabins.
We would love to stay again.
Had a wonderful time, the rental was well stocked with everything you might need. Fishing was fantastic, just outside the canal. Caught at least a hundred trout. Will be back soon. Thanks Scott
For the most part, we enjoyed our week at the Crab Shack. The property is small, but has been nicely renovated, and was very clean when we arrived. It is within easy walking distance of good restaurants, and the local shops. There is also a park with a fishing pier across the highway. The neighborhood is quiet, the neighbors friendly, and we found it to be a good place to spend a quiet, relaxing week.
Property was EXACTLY as described. Had a GREAT time & hope to come back again. Thanks Scott!!! :):):)
A beautiful decorated place to stay. It was very clean and had everything you would need. We did buy food to do some meals and had most all the dishes we needed. We enjoyed sitting out the back on the canal. Our guys fished from there and caught some fish, which they didn't keep. The little shops were fun to browse in. We love that you could walk to many places for food, goodies, and more. We visited Pine Island and went to a couple of great restaurants and hit some thrift stores. There was no beach area close by, but we weren't there for that. Went to Cape Coral a couple of times too. Lots of friendly people everywhere. I highly recommend this place.
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'.
