                  About the owner: Micheal Gordon moved from Philidelphia to Matlacha to find some tranquility but instead found Anna DeMeo his partner in this property. Both Anna and Michael live in Matlacha, and are available to answer questions about the area and it's many activities.

                  Why the Owner Chose Matlacha:
                  The lovely waterfront location and the friendly small town community. Old Florida at it's best! Quaint, off the beaten path of tourist traps, but still only 10 minutes away from all the ammenities of the town of Cape Coral and Fort Myers.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Cool breezes, Abundant wildlife, beautiful sunsets. It's like being on a houseboat without getting seasick! You wake up in the morning to see the pretty bay right from your bed. The birds fly overhead and the dolpins come to greet you. A short walk to the coffe shop for breakfast and conversation with the town folk makes it just perfect!
