About Ron & Tiffany Underwood....and Lisa Underwood when we are not in the area

The owner has lived in the Cape Coral area for several years and recently moved to their private residence on Matlacha Island as living the island life is peaceful, relaxing and it feels like you are on vacation everyday. Having traveled and visited the area many times while growing up, this was the area of choice to locate to after having lived in China the past 15 years.

Ron & Tiffany Underwood....and Lisa Underwood when we are not in the area purchased this House in 2017

Why Ron & Tiffany Underwood....and Lisa Underwood when we are not in the area chose Matlacha

As we love living on the island so much we wanted to be able to share the experience by having the a rental home for others to visit. My wife and I also like to make feel people feel at home. Having been in the restaurant business for 10 years in China, we know how to treat customers right and we may have some special things to offer now and then, like giving some Chinese cooking lessons and other things....so we can talk about this more when you rent with us.

What makes this House unique

The benefits of being on the island is the peaceful relaxing atmosphere and the fact that it is so easy to catch fish, from a boat, a kayak, off the fishingest bridge in the world just a short walk from our rental home.

                                                                  Highly recommend this rental home.

We sat by the water and watched many different birds frequent the area and , to our surprise, a family of manatees visited us two days in a row. Nicely furnished and decorated, it felt like home after only a few days. The owner Ron, whom we found very friendly and helpful, was there to greet us and see us off. The house was well-equipped and extremely clean , Ron even provided fishing equipment that we used and caught several different types of fish right from the canal that is in back of the house. I would highly recommend this rental , I've given it a 5 star rating.
