Wonderful and Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic house with every convenience you would want. It’s great in the photos but more impressive in person. Everything spotlessly clean and the outdoor areas are beautiful. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend

Great find !

  • 5 of 5

Jeff, Your house was perfect in every way, very well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The location was great, close to shopping centers and restaurants. The sun room and decks around the boat dock were a perfect way to start or end the day. Thanks for letting us stay in your awesome home! Laurie W.

Perfect in every way!!!

  • 5 of 5

The House was perfect, professionally decorated, brand new look, very comfortable, Serta Beds, fully furnished. We really enjoyed our 2 weeks here, 1 mile from a great walking park, and a fruit stand that had wonderful tamales and Cuban sandwiches. At the entrance to Matlacha where there are many great restaurants and small shops, 1 mile to Publix. Cape Coral is 5 minutes away, we visited the Everglades (one hour), Sanabel Island (30 minutes), Punta Gorda (20 minutes), Pine Island (10 minutes). The house was a relaxing place with a full screened back porch along the canal (wish I brought a boat!). We would definitely stay here upon returning to the area as it is so convenient to all of southern gulf coast.
