Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this wonderful house. It's location is perfect as is the view from anywhere across the back of the house. Our favorite thing every day was to take our morning coffee and sit on the dock in the quiet of early morning, watching the birds and the jumping fish - so peaceful. The house is very roomy and well equipped. We enjoyed using the bicycles to go to the restaurants and shops. The managers are nearby neighbors and are very responsive. It is everything we wished for!

I agree with you that starting your day off with a cup of coffee and watching the birds and fish are so peaceful! The location is perfect and close to the shoppes and restaurants. I will let our managers know that you were very happy the way they responded to anything that you needed. We would like to invite you to come down next year and stay in our three bedroom home www.vrbo/333179. It is located a few houses down on the bay. This home is going to be listed for sale.. If you are interested in more information please give me a call. Wishing you a fantastic day, Judy

There is a part of me that doesn't want to rave about this place b/c it will attract too many renters, but the owners deserve the praise. The house has every thing. Judith has stocked every thing you could possibly imagine you would need. The view is breath-taking. We saw dolphins jumping up out of the water right off the dock. Every one caught fish. I loved watching all of the birds. The heated pool is great. There is a lot of living space - a living room, a room off the kitchen/dining area & a huge screened-in porch. The house was spotless with plenty of towels & linens. Can't say enough good things about it all.

Amazing and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at your lovely place. We had just gone through Hurricane Matthew and we desperately needed a break from all the clean-up at our home. Mac met us upon our arrival and was very helpful in suggesting places to go, things to do. He was so gracious, he even took my husband fishing!! What a treat!!

This vacation was just the thing we needed. We wouldn't go out to dinner until we had seen the beautiful sunsets from the backyard pool and dock. Each one was spectacular! We enjoyed fishing off the dock and even saw a few manatees, one had her baby by her side!!

Thank you again for opening up this fantastic piece of paradise to us. We would recommend it to anyone who needs the comforts of home and tranquility. We will definitely be returning next year!

Fantastic is all I can say!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a beautiful view and a comfortable place to stay this is it. We loved every minute we were there. The home is so well furnished you won't need a thing. The caretakers are close by for anything you need. We were even there through tropical storm Hermine so our weather wasn't great, but we still made the best of it. The little town of Matlacha is so cute with it's little shops and restaurants. We plan to go back again someday!

Our blended family of my fiancé and I, with our 4 kids (1 "adult" boy☺️, 2 teen boys, and a tween girl), stayed here for a week and we had a FANTASTIC time! We went to beaches, biked, walked, and enjoyed the pool ALOT!! We did a dolphin cruise to Cabbage Key AND a sunset cruise with Captain Jack and Kathy, shopped in the adorable, unique shops, ate ice cream, boys did a tour of the Everglades, and we had breakfast/coffee every morning at The Perfect Cup! It's an awesome home that is fully equipped with everything that you would need!!! We made some great memories and can't wait to go back! Thank you for everything!!!! ❤️

My wife and I were only able to stay here for a week in May...way too short of time. The house was perfect for the 2 of us...fully equipped, clean, cozy, very quiet, and right on the peaceful backwaters just a short distance away from the Gulf. Sitting on the dock in the morning, drinking coffee watching the dolphins swim by. Watching beautiful sunsets over the bay from the dock each evening. Cooling off in the pool. Eating fresh seafood in the local bars and restaurants or getting fresh seafood from the seafood market and cooking it "at home". Fishing from the dock at the house. Riding bikes to the shops and around the neighborhood. It's an easy drive to Sanibel Island and Captiva. Plenty of fishing guides in the area if you like to fish. Our guide (Erik from Native Attitude Charters at the Tarpon Lodge) put us on snook and sea trout and other fish and showed us the scenery and we saw dolphins, sharks, manatees , and other sights while out with him. We also hired a boat (Captain Jack's Tours) to take us on a 2 hour evening cruise around Matlacha and the Pine Island area. We took a tour of some of the islands (Cabbage Key, Useppa Island) with Captain Tom at Pine Island Charters Free Style Excursions. I lived in Fort Myers Beach in the 1960's before the age of condos and beachfront development. Matlacha reminded me of that Florida of my youth. Slow paced and scenic. We are already planning for next year.
