Matlacha House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Welcome to our classic Matlacha style house! This uncluttered 2-BR home has a simple open plan, all tile floors and is clean and bright. Enjoy sun-washed mornings outside on the enclosed poolside patio, overlooking the canal. The house faces just the right direction to receive great natural light all day, without intense direct sun.

A complete kitchen makes for easy meal prep. Bedrooms 1 and 2 both have plush queen beds. There is a queen sleeper sofa. Bedding, towels and pool towels are provided. Enjoy WiFi and premium cable. All you need is food in the fridge. Sliding glass doors leading to a large poolside lanai that expands the living space of an otherwise small home, with another table that seats 6 for outdoor dining. A gas grill is available. The second tiled bath w-shower is accessed from the pool area.

Out all day fishing, shopping or sight-seeing? Take a refreshing dip in your own private swimming pool when you return home. It's heated, of course, for cooler months! Or let the kids splash all day while you hang out on a comfortable chaise lounge.

Did you know that every house in Matlacha is on the water? Our deep water canal is ready for your own boat or easily rent a boat from our local marina. Better still: hire fun & expert fishing guide Gregg McKee of Wild Fly Charters (see Link below) who might pick you up right on your dock! From our Matlacha Pass canal, it's just minutes to Charlotte Harbor and neighboring islands.

Matlacha is a colorful and quaint island community, in mesh with the nature around it. Strolling through town, you'll experience an historic old-style Florida island town. It is devoid of generic modern-day development. Its appeal lies in postcard scenery, an eclectic array of small, colorful shops, affordable art galleries, and good restaurants and bars. In season, live music is everywhere, every day.

Need a beach fix? Take a day trip to the gorgeous sands of Sanibel or Captiva's shell-strewn beaches, only 40 minutes away.

In town you can rent kayaks for a guided or self-guided tour of the shallow waters around Matlacha--which is a designated Aquatic Preserve--and home to manatees and countless species of birds and fish. Fly fish in the shallow waters. Or, fishing right off our seawall or dock is fun and always successful.

Wonderful stay!

My husband and I had a great time. We are locals that just like to get out of the city to fish and relax. We loved this home. My kids enjoyed the pool so much. We will be back next year.

Great Place. Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, 100%. Southeastern pool exposure, overlooking the canal was perfect. We look forward to staying here again next April.

Best of the 3 houses we stayed in during our April 2013 visit to SW Fla.

Thanks to Barb for everything.

wonderful way to start the winter

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a week to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and my husband's 70th birthday. The rental process was very easy and the directions to the house and information on the area were very helpful. Bill and Karen, the caretakers welcomed us and had the house opened up and the air conditioning on. I will always rent a house with a pool, swam at least twice a day. The bath/shower off the pool area was very nice as I could swim and then shower and change without dripping through the house. We drove to Sanibel island for a day and toured the Ding Darling nature reserve which was very nice. Took the afternoon boat tour and saw a large number/verity of birds coming to roost on the mangrove islands. Spent a day in Punta Gorda and Fisherman's Village. Looking forward to returning to the area. Wonderful house and excellent people to work with.
