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!

Ultimate Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the La Casita unit at Fernando's Hideaway and really enjoyed the opportunity to really relax in a private and picturesque location of this property. Every detail from property layout to interior furnishings and decorating made you feel right at home in this beautiful part of Florida. We enjoyed the wonderful morning coffees on the pier while being entertained by the wonderful bird population of the mangrove canals. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks provided and really appreciated all the little things like grilling out and walking to local shopping and eating locations. The facilities were perfectly maintained, well equipped and very clean. The owners could not have been more helpful and made sure we were having a good time but without intruding on privacy...a really class operation.

Clean, bright and enchanting!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an unusually cooler month on Matlacha Island this year, but in spite of the weather we were very comfortable in our one bedroom cabin. One highlight of our stay at Fernandos Hideaway, was evening cocktails on the dock watching the sun set and good conversation with other wonderful guests. Our cabin was conveniently located on the island, walking or biking distance to restaurants and shops. Our accommodations were clean, bright and very comfortable for the two of us. Upon arrival everything was ready to go, just unpack and enjoy!!! Thank you Anna for sharing your little bit of paradise.

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.
