Cape Coral Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 1 full bath.
Your own dock on the bay. Walk to the Perfect Cup Cafe, restaurants, art galleries and shops. We completely renovated and re furnished this cottage in 2011 for our own use a few weeks a year, so we spared no expense to make it the way we wanted. The rest of the time we share it with others. For us, it is paradise. Matlacha [MAT' LA SHAY' ] is an old fishing village protected from high rises and modern desecration by historic district zoning.
A local Realtor couldn't have put it better - Her description is no exaggeration:
'Matlacha Florida is one of the few old Florida villages left. Located on Matlacha Pass which connects to the Gulf of Mexico the fishing and boating is fantastic. You find lots of local color and flare. Everything in Matlacha is located on the water. Fresh seafood served in all the restaurants. Art galleries and events. Live music every week end. Located on the Great Calusa Blueway, Matlacha offers some of the best Kayaking experiences you could want. Paddle through the mangroves. See manatees, dolphins, eagles, osprey. This is Paradise! '
As of 2012 We now have for our guests 2 kayaks, a single and a double, and we have 2 bicycles.
We have wifi. We do not do television, so there is not cable. There is a TV with DVD player and local library has many movies to choose from.

Why andrew peck chose Cape Coral
We never thought we'd want a place in Florida until serendipitously, on a visit to Cayo Costa Island nearby, we happened upon the magical village of Matlacha. For us, it is the 'Woodstock of Florida.' [Woodstock, New York is one of our other homes].
What makes this cottage unique
A unique little village. Our cottage is in a neighborhood historic district, protected forever for the blight of high rises, condos, shopping malls and superhighways that have destroyed much of Florida and the rest of the USA.
