Why the Owner Chose Matlacha, FL, USA:
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 Cottage:
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!
