COCO PLUM COTTAGE ON THE WATER. WALK TO TOWN. NEWLY RENOVATED.

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. Update for winter 2013: We are staying here for a couple of months and have had the cablevision disconnected to make sure we don't waste a precious minute here watching trash. (there remains a DVD/TV for watching movies) We found that many television programs can be watched on our laptop at Hulu.com without a cable hookup. If you wish to spend your time here televiewing, we can have it connected for you. We feel our quality of life here improved by it's absence.

New for 2013. We built single bunk beds in our spare room, so we could sleep more guests. It is the room we store the two bikes and the single person kayak, but they can be put outdoors if needed. There us a 2 inch thick foam 'camping' mattress fir ibe if the bunks. If you wish to use the bunks, bring sleeping bags to use. We only list this as a 2 bedroom, since this third one is not yet air conditioned, but this can provide an extra sleeping accommodation.

andrew peck purchased this cottage in 2010

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].

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.

HOMEAWAY TO MATLASHAY

  • 5 of 5
We first came across Matlacha (say Mat-lashay) a couple of years ago whilst staying at Cape Coral. We found it a cute quirky little place, brightly painted and home to artists and other free thinkers.
This year a last minute change of holiday plans found us with the chance of visiting again and maybe, this time, staying a little while. A brief search on the interweb, a couple of calls to Chloe and a few days later found us pulling off Pine Island road and down a little lane to " ... Dock of The Bay".
Oh heaven - a compact olde worlde shack right on the water. Simply but comfortably equipped & furnished. Two comfortable bedrooms and an open plan kitchen / living room.
Best of all though is to step out of the back door and down onto your own dock. And what a joy it is to sit out and enjoy the peace and quiet (no passing traffic) as you sip your morning coffee or a late night Bud & marguerita
The only sound is the lapping of the water, the calls of the resident Ospreys, Egrets and Ibis, the splashing of the fish and the grumbling of distant thunder.
A short walk takes you to the main road and a selection of bars and eateries including our favourites - Pizza Bella, where they make the pizza bases fresh while you wait and The Olde Fish House Marina where you mix with leather tanned fishermen as you eat fresh caught fish, drink beer kept in a huge ice bucket and listen to live music in a open sided bar right on the water.
Matlacha is a fisherman's paradise. Fish for catfish & bass from your own dock, from "The Fishingest Bridge in Florida" (soon to be The Fishingest Reef), fish for ladyfish and sharks!! from Bokleia pier or dig deep into the walet for a private hire boat and skipper to fish for Tarpon.
While you're there - try a tropical tipple at The Lowkey Tiki in St James city, a meal in luxurious surroundings at Tarpon Lodge or fresh, home made, value for money food at The Captain's Restaurant at Bokleia.
Best though, for me at least, would be a steak (from Publix - 5 minutes down the road), a cold Bud and to watch the Sun go down from "Sitting on The Dock of The Bay".
Mat-lashay - I want to go back there so much it hurts.
