Overview

Pine Island House Rental Photos and Description

Boat dock, seawall, fishing directly from the back door. Clean and fresh.

This historic, cottage style house had just been fully redecorated with new carpet and fresh paint in 11/15. It sits at he end of a no through street. This area is quiet and restful. There is a 20 foot seawall for your boat that had direct canal access to Pine Island Sound and then right out to the Gulf for a day of fishing and relaxing. The famous craft and art shops of Matlacha are just a 10 minute walk from the house. There are several restaurants and eateries also within a 10 minute walk. If your looking for the perfect vacation cottage this is the one.

Peaceful and Cozy at a Great Price!

  • 4 of 5

Betty Love was great with answering or questions about the Cozy Cottage in Matlacha. She was even able to let us arrive two days early and we ended up staying 9 nights. Betty and her Husband made sure that they arrived before we did and made sure the cottage was clean and ready for our stay. The cottage has been in Matlacha since the 50's. Nice view of Palm tress and foliage out back across the canal. The many Osprey where beautiful and you can watch them catch fish from the canal. White herons would stop by to hang out and the little lizards are so cute. We enjoyed walking the streets in the morning and evenings. We rented kayaks and kayaked the bay area. Great food and live music at the Blue Dog Bar and Grill, Bert's and the Fish House. At the Fish Market you can stop in and say hi to Andy and get fresh caught fish. We went during off season but many shops where open and we enjoyed looking around the galleries and getting ice cream at the ice cream Shoppe. The Publix is only 2 miles away and is new and very nice. Walk to the draw bridge and fish or watch the Pods of Dolphins that hang out at the bridge. The beaches are about 40 minutes away but you have a large choice of beaches to visit and the are all beautiful. The people and neighbors on Matlacha are very friendly. My husband and I are in our early 50's and enjoyed our stay very much! Highly recommend!

great location, great house

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean larger than I thought it would be. Back patio is right on the canal and we could see fish jumping in the water while we sat outside. Great location for being able to walk to almost all the restaurants and shops. Stackable washer and dryer was a huge bonus. I was able to wash all our clothes before we left making unpacking much easier. The house has all dishes, pots and pans, silverware, etc. Would stay again.

A Really Great Place To Stay; Amazing Price.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 11 days at the end of March and loved every minute of it. It's an exceptionally clean & neat cottage, all new carpeting and ceramic tile, and the Loves provided everything necessary for a great vacation. It's right on a canal and whether sitting, reading or cooking outside, we watched good-sized fish literally jumping out of the water all day.

It's an artistic, quiet island neighborhood at the end of the block and the neighbors were all very nice & friendly. All the small arty shops & galleries, fish markets and excellent restaurants were within about a 5 minute walk and we felt Matlacha was the most interesting place of the entire Ft. Myers/Cape Coral/Pine Island area.

Also, the big grocery stores (Publix and/or Winn Dixie) and open-air produce markets were only a 10-minute drive in either direction, very convenient.

We'll definitely be staying there again.

Loved our stay and hope to come again

  • 5 of 5

A+ !!! Our stay exceeded our expectations. We loved sitting outside by the canal in the mornings and evenings and relaxing and unwinding. The house had everything the 2 of us needed. It was furnished nicely and had adequate dishes and cookware. The cookware was in nearly new condition and much better than some other VRBO's I have stayed at. It was close enough to walk to the park or bridge for fishing and we also caught some right in the canal. There are restaurants within walking distance. We loved our stay and would love to come back again.

JUST DO IT!

  • 5 of 5

Don't look for fancy or touristy stuff here, just enjoy peace and quiet in this quaint place. The house is roomy, clean, comfortable, and has everything you need, for a price that can't be beat. The neighbors are friendly; the restaurants are good for breakfast, lunch and dinner; it's an all-around good place to be for a while.
