Even better the second time!

  • 5 of 5

As always, our time in Matlacha is special, our annual fishing trip and a few days with no kids.

The house is fantastic, and I found myself feeling "at home" within minutes.

Mac is a pleasure, and I always look forward to chatting with him.

Fishing in the mangroves was a little rough with the winds, but worth the effort and toned arm muscles.

Will be returning in 2018, that is if the home is available. I suggest you do not hesitate or look elsewhere for a better deal or location.

Owner's Response: Hello Al, We are so glad that you and your family had a great time. I was really happy to hear that my house manger helped you dock your boat and took you out in the waterways to show you where the different fish can be caught. Thanks for sending me the picture of your red fish!! We look forward to having your family come back next year and vacation with us. Judy

Wow what a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 1 week and were sad to leave. The pictures do not do the home justice. Very spacious, clean and very well equipped. Unfortunately it rained almost everyday but we still managed to catch fish.

This was our first vacation with our grown children and grandchildren and hope to make it an annual event.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this Island Avenue home to anyone looking for a comfortable stay. It was the perfect fit for our family to spend a week in Matlacha. The home is in a great location and is nice and roomy with an ideal layout. Having the lift was great as we brought our boat and fished daily. The privacy of the back yard was wonderful as well as being fenced for our dogs. The sunsets from the lanai were fabulous! We hope to return next year.

Well Equipped, Immaculately Clean, Fish for dinner from the dock

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks here, brought our flats boat, and had a great time fishing. The home is thoroughly equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, plenty of beach towels for the pool, lots of games for entertainment, and plenty of space for a big family dinner with an abundance of dishes, silverware, etc. Great new appliances too. The fenced yard is perfect for a pet friendly house (all tile inside), and we loved the heated outside shower (ideal for our teenage son). The sunny pool is wonderful for floating, relaxing and playing, and the poolside gas grill was put to good use too. There was even a small charcoal grill available for the grill master. Lots of parking available for the car and trailer (double garage was a luxury) and we loved having the bikes available. What a treasure to have such competent and friendly property managers living right across the street. Loved having the light switches labeled, the boat lift was perfect, the flounder caught from the dock was delicious, the master bath shower is beautifully remodeled, two water heaters was a luxury, and the extra half bath was ideal for the kids. You can tell the owners have put their heart into making this home comfortable and inviting for guests.

Perfect Location and Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week on Matlacha Island. The house was a wonderful surprise. It turns out to be fabulously laid out, comfortable seating and lots of it. The back yard was truly a treat. We spend lots of time on the dock, lots of dolphins, birds, and fish. Unfortunately, We only had 2 days that the pool was warm. The property manager and caretakers are great! The kitchen was well equipped and inviting. The Lanai was spectacular. Walking the neighbor was fun too with all the beautiful landscaping and birds and was very festive with Holiday lights and decorations. We had such great weather, no rain. It is a wonderful house and awesome location to celebrate a 60th birthday. We had family and friends dropping in throughout the week. The house was perfect for celebrating. We enjoyed Bert’s, The Ole Fish House, the Perfect Cup, Great Lick's, and Pizza Bella. We enjoyed cooking and grilling at the house in the evenings so as not to miss the breathtaking sunsets. We spent a day on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. We spent a day exploring around Pine Island. We saw white Pelicans there, amazing. Would love to come back again. We would definitely recommend this home? We left there with our hearts full! Gratefully

Owner's Response: Hello Wanda, I am so glad that you enjoyed your weeks stay at our beautiful three bedroom and that you are booking for a month next year. As you mentioned we are very happy that we have house managers Mac and Amy that live across the street. I really wished that you would of let us know that the pool was cool at the beginning of your stay. Unfortunately when you did ask Mac about the water he went and turned it up. Thank so much for letting us know I will make sure that on the welcome letter when other guests arrive that add to the list information about the pool tempertures. See ya next year! Judy
