Why Andy Glosser 717- 471-4991 chose Matlacha

We really enjoy the private splendor of this home. Whether we choose to be active and hike, kayak,fish or ride bikes, Or whether we are just relaxing by the pool, we fine our home on Matlacha to be a special place to unwind. No wonder the sign on the bridge say' you are now on island time'. Please enjoy our paradise, come relax, reinvigorate, and return. We are sure you will be pleased with our home.

What makes this house unique

Kayaking from this home is spectacular. Kayaks are easy to launch from a floating dock in the back yard. My wife enjoys the bird, and wildlife watching in and around the mangroves. I really like to fish from the kayak. While we do not offer kayaks at the home for liability reasons, you may rent them from many dealers around Matlacha.

Even better the second time!

  • 5 of 5

As always, our time in Matlacha is special, our annual fishing trip and a few days with no kids.

The house is fantastic, and I found myself feeling "at home" within minutes.

Mac is a pleasure, and I always look forward to chatting with him.

Fishing in the mangroves was a little rough with the winds, but worth the effort and toned arm muscles.

Will be returning in 2018, that is if the home is available. I suggest you do not hesitate or look elsewhere for a better deal or location.

Owner's Response: Hello Al, We are so glad that you and your family had a great time. I was really happy to hear that my house manger helped you dock your boat and took you out in the waterways to show you where the different fish can be caught. Thanks for sending me the picture of your red fish!! We look forward to having your family come back next year and vacation with us. Judy

Wow what a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 1 week and were sad to leave. The pictures do not do the home justice. Very spacious, clean and very well equipped. Unfortunately it rained almost everyday but we still managed to catch fish.

This was our first vacation with our grown children and grandchildren and hope to make it an annual event.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this Island Avenue home to anyone looking for a comfortable stay. It was the perfect fit for our family to spend a week in Matlacha. The home is in a great location and is nice and roomy with an ideal layout. Having the lift was great as we brought our boat and fished daily. The privacy of the back yard was wonderful as well as being fenced for our dogs. The sunsets from the lanai were fabulous! We hope to return next year.
