Matlacha house description

Here are 3 reasons this canal home is a great place to stay!

Reason #1. The house is in a fabulous Southwest Florida location for fishing, boating or exploring nature! Bring your own boat; we have true direct Gulf access and a deep water canal! No boat? No problem. Easily rent from one of the local marinas. Or hire fun & expert fishing guide Gregg McKee of Wild Fly Charters (see Link below) who will pick you up right on our dock! From our Matlacha Pass canal, it's just minutes to Charlotte Harbor, to legendary Boca Grande and the Gulf of Mexico. Or, head south under The World's Most Fished Bridge, where the Matlacha Pass leads to San Carlos Bay, Pine Island Sound, and neighboring islands Sanibel, Captiva and Cabbage Key. The Intracoastal Waterway is minutes away.

Reason #2. it's an easy-care house! This uncluttered 2-bedroom home has all tile floors and is clean and bright. Enjoy sun-washed mornings outside on the enclosed poolside patio, overlooking the canal. The house faces just the right direction to receive great natural light all day, without intense afternoon direct sun. The simple, open plan creates a no-stress vacation retreat.

The house has a complete kitchen for easy meal prep. Bedrooms 1 and 2 both have plush queen size beds. There is a queen sleeper-sofa. Bedding, towels and pool towels are provided. Enjoy WiFi Internet and expanded cable! Most other basic supplies are on hand. All you need is food in the fridge.

Sliding glass doors open to the lanai and another table that seats 6 for outdoor meals poolside. The enclosed patio area expands the living space of an otherwise small home. A Weber gas grill is available. The second tiled bath w-shower is accessed from the pool area. Take a refreshing dip in the pool, then hang out on a comfortable chaise lounge.

Reason #3. Nearby are great restaurants, shops and recreation. Matlacha is a colorful and quaint island community, in mesh with the nature around it. Strolling around Matlacha, you'll experience an historic old-style Florida island town that is hard to find. It is devoid of generic modern-day development. Its appeal lies in postcard scenery, an eclectic array of small, colorful shops, affordable art galleries, and places to eat and drink.

Need a beach fix? Cross the Midpoint Bridge into Fort Myers and head for the gorgeous white sand of Fort Myers Beach, or take the Causeway for a day trip to Sanibel's shell-strewn beaches, with each being only 45 minutes away.

A short walk away, you can rent kayaks; go out for a guided or self-guided tour of the shallow backwaters around Matlacha. This designated Aquatic Preserve is home to manatees and countless rare and not-so-rare species of birds and marine life. Fly fish in the shallow waters. Or, fishing right off our seawall or dock is fun and always successful.
