Classic Florida Fishing Getaway House

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as previously reviewed and described. Clean, neat, everything you need, nothing fancy, quiet neighborhood, easy to walk to everything, was perfect for the two of us. An earlier reviewer had used the words "unlimited television stations" I think, but just know that TV reception is quite limited. We were there to fish and have fun so TV didn't matter to us at all but if it's somehow critical to you, this might not be the place! You can fish right outside the door in the canal, but will want to fish elsewhere if you are hoping to catch dinner! Host was lovely to work with. Recommend this cottage!!

Great Matlacha location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and liked that we were within walking distance of shops and restaurants. I was able to walk to the bridge area each morning and watch the sunrises with a cup of coffee from The Perfect Cup.

Quaint,quiet, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Everything we could ask for. Great location walking distance to shops bars restaurants. Great neighbors. Betty is quick to respond if questions or concerns but we had none. Everything is clean and tidy. Home away from home. We had everything we needed. Wifi works great. For those who want all tv channels not the case but when in Matlacha you don’t need tv. A lovely place and thanks Betty will definitely stay here again

Great Location!

Great location to the local shops and restaurants. Really enjoyed watching the fish jump in the canal, right off the back porch! Betty was excellent to deal with.

Cute place in heart of a lot of action.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time in Matlacha. The house was neat and clean. The furnishings could have been better. Although the weather was less than pleasant we walked all over Matlacha and got involved in some of the art activities. Thanks for a nice place.
