Fun Florida Vibe
I loved this place. It had all the comforts of home and was decorated so cute. I didn't want to leave. The location was also perfect in a quiet low key neighborhood. I loved sipping my coffee in the morning and listening to all the birds and watching the mullet jump up and down the canal. I can't wait to come back!
So cute and clean!!
This cottage was exactly what I needed. It was clean and cute and had everything that I needed. You can't beat the location, a short walk to restaurants and shopping! I hope to return in the future!
The Good The Bad and The Ugly
The Good - the cottage was right on the canal and we enjoyed watching the osprey, jumping mullet fish, the dolphin appearing everyday, the friendly neighbors and the sunshine.
The Bad - when was the last time you saw a tv with rabbit ears? We got one channel, old cowboy movies 24 hours when it wasn't cutting in and out all the time. If they didn't want to provide satellite service they could have at least furnished a cheap DVD player and we would have rented movies from RedBox.
The Ugly - sofa so filthy we didn't want to sit on the couch or touch the dirty throw pillows. We took the throw off the day bed, turned it upside down so the Cleaner side was up, put it on the sofa before using it. The dishes were so dirty we bought paper plates, plastic silverware and used as little of the provided utensils as was possible. Thank goodness we had brought our own keurig coffee maker, and coffee mugs, bacon cooker and omelette maker. We paid the cleaning fee in advance but nothing was clean.
The description would indicate it was within walking distance from "town" but that certainly was not the case.
We plan to vacation in this general area again but will definitely not return to this rental. We use Home Away all the time and have never experienced this type of situation.
thank you very much for your review. I'm sorry that our cottage didn't meet your expectations. Matlacha is an older Village with it's own Charme. That's what people are looking for then they come to Matlacha. Boating, fishing and enjoying the nature. Not state of the art but with lovely decorated houses, shops and restaurants. Obviously you are not one of them. Sorry again and maybe more luck at another place in SW Florida.
very nice place unigue , very clean, nice people all around.
We really liked the place , it was unique and very clean. The whole island living idea was special, the people could not be any nicer. Wonderful experience.
A well-located clean cottage reflecting the artistic spirit of Matlacha.
We truly enjoyed our stay. Being able to eat most of our meals outside while watching fish jump in the canal and ospreys soar overhead was like a tonic for we northerners. Jens, our property manager, was very responsive and helpful. Nice older rental property. Good value.
Cottage was small but beautifully situated,
Equipped with everything you could need, bright and well decorated, Wi-Fi and outdoor table and chairs, even a grill
There are fishing and beach chairs available incl. Umbrella and a cooler. Kayaks can be the same book at the corner at Carmen.
