This was our second time to stay at Paradise in Matlacha. Communication with the owner was the best experience we've had with property owners...kind, courteous, knowledgeable about the area. The pool was clean, having the tiki bar was great, and the accomodations were well stocked, clean, very comfortable, and WiFi connection was excellent. We are planning on visting again next year for a longer stay in Paradise. Jerry, Phyllis, and Gavin Jones
A few days in Paradise....
We've just arrived at RSW and awaiting a flight back to Cleveland. Although we love Cleveland and are happy to be heading home, I wanted to take a few moments to convey what a beautiful place this is. The weather didn't hurt (82 - 85 degrees and sunny for 5 days) though having this lovely home base made things perfect. The sunsets are amazing, we sat up on the deck and poolside and watched dolphins swim by, my husband caught about 25 decent fish off the dock, we walked to galleries, restaurants, the Perfect Cup for breakfast. We had no idea what to expect in Matlacha ~ and this fun and funky little island is laid back and friendly. The home is beautifully kept and perfect for a family of four - or a couple of couples looking to have a get away where we actually cancelled plans to be able to just stay there and relax by the pool, look out onto the bay, cookout and have some wine as the sun dropped quickly out of view. Will definitely look forward to being back.
Cute waterfront town
Great house, kids (teenagers) loved the pool, beautiful sunsets! The house is right in the heart of this cute, wonderful town! Many shops and restaurants! Melissa was very responsive, and easy to rent from and work with. Look forward to our next visit!
My husband summed it up best, "I liked everything about this place!"
This property is a gem! It is sparkling clean and comfortable. The view is so calming and the sunsets from the deck are spectacular!
Beautiful house, spectacular view!
Everything was perfect about this house. My daughter loved the pool, heated to the perfect temperature. The house is updated very nicely and Melissa provided all the amenities, coffee, beach chairs, fishing poles, beach towels, even big containers of shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the showers. Melissa accommodated our request for a late check out and was a fantastic host. You are located on the main road, so you hear a little bit of the traffic, but it is very muted thanks to the hurricane windows. I would definitely rent this house again! Loved it!
A perfect place to enjoy what's best about SW Florida.
A couple of years ago a dear friend of ours moved back to Cape Coral from LA to take care of his aging father. Shortly after returning, he himself received a cancer diagnosis. At the time he was given about 6 months. It was devastating. So my wife and I and another friend decided we would hurry out to spend some time with him. We didn't know a thing about the area. We were just looking for a rental that was near by his home and which could accommodate all of us. And, since he'd just completed surgery and was still recovering, it would also need to serve as our "main destination" and not just a place to sleep. This home on the little spit of land called Matlache was perfect.
It was just a short drive from our friends home, but a million miles away from his problems. Right on the water, with views of the bay/river in all directions, this immaculately maintained home instantly made us all feel like we were on vacation. And with tasteful decor, two beds and two baths, a full kitchen with everything you could need, we all felt instantly at home. The large flatscreen TV was perfect for us, because our friend is a movie buff and wanted to spend time watching his favorite films. There's cable and a DVD player, but we brought out own apple TV. The wifi is free, so we could set that up quickly.
But the best feature was the view from, not only the second story covered deck (where we took our meals and had some cocktails), but from inside the house. The large sliding door, which opens up the entire back wall of the living room, allows you to bring the outisde in. Between the wildlife (ospreys, dolphins, fish jumping) and sunsets, it's breathtaking.
There's also a heated pool and spa.. You won't be swimming laps, but it's a nice place to splash around. The lower deck includes several more sitting areas, as well as a dock and boat lift. We didn't come to fish, but if that's your thing, this would be a great place to drop a line.
Matlache itself is right outside your door. There are little shops and several restaurants within a short walk. Or, you can jump in the car and drive to the mainland or further west on to Pine Island if you like. Couldn't be easier.
Well I'm glad to say that two years on, our friend is still fighting. So we recently returned to this house for a second visit and it was even better! This place is perfect for us and we plan on returning again and again!
