Affectionately known as the 'Rhinestone Fisherman' this fantasy pirate/ocean themed waterfront vacation rental will make for a vacation you will cherish for a lifetme. Matlacha(MAT-la-shay) is just 30 minutes from Ft. Myers, but this secluded fishing village is a world apart! Fishermen, artists, bikers, vacationers all rub elbows and share the love of its unpretentious atmosphere. Unlike some topnotch fishing destinations, the intriguing thing about Matlacha is the plethora of attractions for non anglers: shops, restaurants, landmarks, and vusual curiosities. Golfers will appreciate golfing at the Royal Tee Golf championship golf club(less than 5 minutes away). Fishermen can relax on their excursions with the knowledge that family memberrs ashore will not be bored or grouchy because of nothing to do. The Rhinestone Fisherman is a fisherman's and an artist's dream.

The lighting and murals in this home are incredible. Bose surround sound system, two wide screen televisions, and WIFI will all add to your enjoyment. As you gaze over the bay, enjoy your time in the gourmet kitchen--exotic granite, stainless steel appliances, elegant cabinetry, all add to give you the feeling of a home away from home.

Why the Owner Chose Matlacha: Driving to Ft. Myers one day on business, I decided to take a trip through Matlacha. I was immediately struck by the old town atmosphere, the beauty, and overall feel of this village. If you close your eyes and open them you'd swear you were somewhere in Key West. The natural beauty of the areas only accessible by boat was another attraction for me.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This vacation rental practically built on top of your own dock. SITTING ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY song will readily come to mind each morning seeing the sunrise. WOW factor
