Our rates and calendar are always current. Please take a look at both before sending your request. Thank you!!

The Redfish at Yellowdog is a newly redecorated beach chic key west style 1BR/1BA waterfront cottage. It is by far the most stylish waterfront cottage in town.

The Redfish has a queen bedroom, a half bedroom with a modular full size bed, and a pull out full size sleeper couch in the living room. A large HDTV in also in the living room. The cottage has a full kitchen with large refrigerator, gas stove, coffee maker, microwave, and all kitchen utensils. A full bathroom is in the cottage, plus there is an additional shower and half bath are right outside your door.

Please note that since our rentals are pet friendly, we may not recommend staying with us if you have significant, uncontrolled allergies to pet dander. We make every effort to thoroughly clean between guests, but cannot guarantee the cottage will be 100% free of pet dander.

About Yellowdog: Yellowdog is a destination in itself. We have a boutique with ladies upscale resale and consignment clothing, homegoods, and original art. Opening soon is a cafe serving breakfast and lunch. We have boat dockage available and kayaks and stand up paddleboards available for rent. We are right next to Bert's Bar and Grill and across the street from Andy's Seafood - two of the best places to eat in Matlacha and they are right at your doorstep. Well behaved dogs are welcome to stay with you for an additional cleaning fee.

From Yellowdog you can easily walk to most of Matlacha's art galleries and restaurants.

Licensed Captain onsite: We have a licensed Captain available on weekends for boat trips and fishing charters. Captain Chris can take you on a sunset wine cruise, to Cabbage Key for lunch or dinner, or to Cayo Costa for a day of leisure on a beautiful island beach. We'll even pack a picnic for you.

For larger parties: For larger parties you may want to also rent the Tarpon Cottage at Yellowdog -HomeAway #952204. This is a 2BR/1-1/2BA cottage right next door to the Redfish.

We actively manage this gorgeous property and do whatever it takes to make sure our guests have a fantastic vacation!

Linda Seibert purchased this cottage in 2011

There are no other properties in the area like ours. We have 3 cottages confined in a gated area, with kayaks and paddle boards, plenty of outdoor seating, boat slips, and views that will take your breath away. We love our 4 legged guests, and with our gated confines, they are free to roam safely.

Matlacha has many waterfront rental properties, but we have yet to see one that is as clean and tastefully decorated as ours. If you care about that sort of thing, we're your best choice! We are constantly improving the property like it's our home, because it will be someday!

Not great for dogs and not worth the price!

When I found this place online, I was SO excited. Unfortunately it did not live up to it's online appearance. I will start with the good things: the inside was decorated adorably, very clean, and I loved the setup. (All very important things!) The problem was that the one of the main reasons I chose this place was because they were dog friendly. I wish I had known that there would be virtually NO WHERE to walk them unless you crossed the very busy highway which the cottage is directly on. Even when you cross the street, it's less than ideal for anyone with dogs. We ended up actually putting the dogs in the car and driving them to a nearby neighborhood everytime they needed to be walked. We were also less than thrilled with the customer service. There was no one there to greet or help us upon our arrival and there was a lot of confusion about how to get in to the actual property. After about half an hour of phone calls and playing with locks, we got in. When we walked into our cottage (The Redfish) it was stifling hot. We were told that the a/c was supposed to be turned on the day, but the cleaning lady had forgotten. It took a little while to cool down, but once it did that aspect of the cottage was fine. They did end up getting the lock on the main gate working, but it was the most complicated lock I've ever used. (Not a standard padlock) And when you get back to your cottage and it's night time, there is not a single light to see your way. Without having someone shine my phone, it would have been impossible for me to get in, not to mention a little creepy because you can't see anything at all.

Main Points:
Good- very cute, clean, and has everything you need if you are staying out of town
Bad- Not great customer service, confusing entrance, no lights and a little creepy at night and MOST IMPORTANTLY: NOT GOOD FOR DOGS!

I only write this because I wish someone would have painted a true picture prior to me booking, especially since it was one of the most expensive places I found when looking. Hope this helps some other pet parents!
Owner's Response: This guest had some valid points and we were very apologetic for the issues she experienced. There was some miscommunication we had with getting our gate fixed; I didn't realize the lock itself was being changed until the guest had trouble. I felt very badly for that. It is fixed now and is a regular lock with a lock box. Regarding the dogs, we have our dogs there very frequently and never have any issues. We've had dozens of guests bring dogs and this is the first time we've gotten negative feedback. If you are unsure, just give us a call or email to ask questions before booking. Thanks!!

Thanks for sharing your little slice of paradise with us. The Redfish is so adorable, exactly what an island cottage should look like. It doesn’t get any better than this!

A local Realter couldn't have put it better - this 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 weekend. 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!'

Matlacha is the perfect spot for fishing, kayaking, and boating. Please note, if you are not familiar with the area, the closest beach by car will be about 45 minutes to either Ft. Myers Beach or Sanibel Island. If you have a boat, you can get to Cayo Costa or Sanibel in about that time or less, depending on your speed.
