It was perfect!!!
Loved the place!! Very cute and clean! Neighbors were terrific. Very close to everything. Most nights just walked to one of the many restaurants close by. Would definitely come again!!
My husband and I really enjoyed our weekend getaway at Betty’s home. We arrived by boat so we didn’t have a vehicle to get us around. Betty’s home is within walking distance to many restaurants, shops and even a ice cream place. The home itself is clean, and has everything you need for a stay. The master bathroom and bedroom has recently been renovated. The bonus was being able to do a load of laundry before leaving. I loved being able to sit on the back porch and see the fish jumping. We will defiantly be back to visit.
Thank you so much for your description of our little hide a way.
Small, quaint, fully supplied cabin home.
My 4th time at this cottage. Not my last. Everything you need if you like to prepare meals at home. However, several nice restaurants with-in walking distance.
Nice to relax on back screened in porch and watch fish jump in the canal. Master bathroom upgraded to a nice step in shower. Freshly redone bedrooms. No longer have cable tv but bring your Roku or Amazon Fire stick to get basic cable, I will next time.
Fishing the Matlacha bridge is a short walk. Short drive to Bokeelia pier and good fishing. Lots of kitschy art shops and restaurants to walk to. Nice to return to this comfortable cabin at the end of the day. Nice neighboors on a quiet dead end street. Peaceful!
You can see my previous reviews. Betty has put in those special touches and upgrades each time I've leased and this cozy little place keeps getting better. Laid back as Matlacha is. Relaxing vacation base.
Its always good to see return visitors. Thank you for the kind words. See you soon.
Classic Florida Fishing Getaway House
The house is exactly as previously reviewed and described. Clean, neat, everything you need, nothing fancy, quiet neighborhood, easy to walk to everything, was perfect for the two of us. An earlier reviewer had used the words "unlimited television stations" I think, but just know that TV reception is quite limited. We were there to fish and have fun so TV didn't matter to us at all but if it's somehow critical to you, this might not be the place! You can fish right outside the door in the canal, but will want to fish elsewhere if you are hoping to catch dinner! Host was lovely to work with. Recommend this cottage!!
Quaint,quiet, cozy cottage
Everything we could ask for. Great location walking distance to shops bars restaurants. Great neighbors. Betty is quick to respond if questions or concerns but we had none. Everything is clean and tidy. Home away from home. We had everything we needed. Wifi works great. For those who want all tv channels not the case but when in Matlacha you don’t need tv. A lovely place and thanks Betty will definitely stay here again
Great Matlacha location
We enjoyed our stay and liked that we were within walking distance of shops and restaurants. I was able to walk to the bridge area each morning and watch the sunrises with a cup of coffee from The Perfect Cup.
Five minute walk to the Matlacha art shops. Ten minutes to Pine Island. Short drive to Cape Coral. Thirty minute drive to Punta Gorda.
