"My wife and I had a great time at Matlacha and staying at the Tarpon cottage. I can't say enough good things about the place. The cottage is roomy, clean, all the amenities and great view of the water. The deck is awesome for a nighttime beverage or listening to the mullet jumping endlessly out of the water. It is close walking to several places to eat and shop. You get the full Matlacha experience staying at the Tarpon. I highly recommend it..."

"Had our daughter’s family come down with two small grandbabies and stay with us. The 3 year old learned to swim while we were there. Very nice we had our boat at the dock all week, very easy to get around to all the fishing holes. The view from the back screened in porch was out of this world, you could not see the houses on either side all you say was the river and the mangroves. Very peaceful! Cooked a lot on the great BBQ grill out by the pool. The bikes were nice to take a ride. The kids enjoyed the park just down the street from the house. Oh yea Mac was the best, he takes care of the house and gives great tips on fishing. I have stayed in other houses in the area but this one is best. We will be back!!"

"The Yellow Dog cottages are absolutely perfect! My 2 brothers and I rented all three cottages for a family weekend getaway and had a awesome time. Once you walked through the gate, we were in your own slice of paradise. We used the common ground to sit out and listen to music from Bert's bar, fish and relax. We stayed in the Redfish cottage and it was decorated perfectly. Plenty of room for my wife and I and extremely clean. Would definitely stay here again and would consider bringing our golden retriever next time. All three cottages were clean and tastefully decorated. Restaurants were very close by and all were very good. Very neat place, must stay!"

"Wonderful location to be able to walk to all of the shops and restaurants in Matlacha, especially The Perfect Cup (best place for breakfast and lunch). Very clean and well maintained home. A great place to really relax. Owner very helpful when needed. I would recommend this property."
