About Anna or Michael

Micheal Gordon moved from Philidelphia to Matlacha to find some tranquility but instead found Anna DeMeo his partner in this property. Both Anna and Michael live in Matlacha, and are available to answer questions about the area and it's many activities.

Anna or Michael purchased this house in 2005

Why Anna or Michael chose Pine Island

The lovely waterfront location and the friendly small town community. Old Florida at it's best! Quaint, off the beaten path of tourist traps, but still only 10 minutes away from all the ammenities of the town of Cape Coral and Fort Myers.

What makes this house unique

Cool breezes, Abundant wildlife, beautiful sunsets.

It's like being on a houseboat without getting seasick!

You wake up in the morning to see the pretty bay right

from your bed. The birds fly overhead and the dolpins

come to greet you. A short walk to the coffe shop for

breakfast and conversation with the town folk makes it just perfect!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the kind words. We all loved hearing you sing, and playing the guitar and harmonica on the back deck at Fernando's and at Bert's.

Fabulous in every way!

  • 5 of 5
This place exceeded our expectations and so did Anna! What was so great? The view of the water and birds from the very comfortable bed, couch, dining table, and kitchen. The deck and dock were wonderful, fishing and kayaking were great (nice kayaks supplied), there is a well-equipped kitchen, beautiful decor outside and in, including the amazing lizard-design in the bedroom floor tile. Very clean (and I am very fussy about this)! Surprisingly quiet for such a convenient location - an easy walk to the wonderful coffee shop although Anna supplies their good coffee if you want to stay in - and it really is hard to pull yourself away from this spot - we wanted to move in permanently! Highly recommend!

Little paradise

  • 5 of 5
We traveled a lot all over the world but we never had such a superb place like Fernando's hideaway. As walk-in guests we found the place to stay and relax. We enjoyed the nice location and of course the excellent service of Anna and Mike.
We will come back soon...

Owner's Response: Werner and Esther traveled a long way (from Switzerland) to find their little island paradise.
We were enchanted to have such a lovely couple spend time at Fernando's and our friendship grew quickly. It was a pleasure to sit on the back porch and enjoy freshly made Mango smoothies with mangoes picked right in Matlacha! Looking forward to seeing them again

Fernandos Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
I love going to Matlacha each year and here are just a few of the reasons.
I can't wait to go down to the dock to see what's swimming around the underwater light...It's like having your own aquarium...In the morning, I can't wait to get up to see what's out in the bay...when the tides are low, the bay is filled with the most wonderful birds - vibrant pink spoonbills, fabulous storks, blue herons, etc.. Afternoons are perfect to watch for dolphins - All this brings so much peace & quiet to the soul...
Then there's the cottage itself...It is small - made for comfort--spotlessly clean & filled with all the "extras" one would never expect in a rental. Anna & Mike make you feel as though they prepared everything just for you...It's as if you are their family and they want only the best for you..
The friendliness of the island itself----The total package is certainly a perfect experience.

The only aspect of our experience that was not absolutely perfect is that we were bumped from returning next year. Everything after Coconut Moon is second rate. We only hope that we will be able to return to paradise in2014. We loved it and we love Anna!

I would rather not write this review. If you read this and most of the others you will want to come here too.
Why would that be bad? because you might be the person who fills the calender spot I want when I return.
{:-)!
What amazed me most was that I didn't want to leave the island at all. I usually can't sit stll-gotta go explore or I might miss something...but as soon as i got here, sat on the deck and watch a pleican nosedive in very shallow water for some Matlacha sushi this place took on a charm of it's own.

Other than hitting the publix for the nice selection of Belgion Ales I had no need or desire to leave this
oasis from cement high rises and chain restaurants. Besides-I had hooked up With Josh Harvel who is a kayak fishing guide-"Yaknitup" googled will get you to him. Armed with fishing knowledge and Annas kayaks My week was spent on the water -and not just fishing-the 'yakin is awesome! Other than that walked "downtown" once or twice a day! Perfect Cup ,Andys,Berts, The ice cream-the Pizza Bella all great!

I stayed in the waters edge efficiency. Comfortable bed, very clean and the water front deck the best place to relax. Had a great time with the neighbors-shared the fish I caught with them and got to enjoyed
later on prepared by them to perfection!

Anna-is the absolute best hostess-bar none! The entire compound(7 of us) ended up at Bert's thurs night and Anna got me a shot to jam with the band and had all of us up and boogien'.

I had a great time and would really give Fernandos. Anna. And Matlacha 6 stars. But you won't like it here-so look elsewhere my friend-maybe Hawaii?
