About the Property

Fisherman's Paradise in Matlacha

Please come and enjoy our beautiful 3 BR/2BA 1865 Sq ft home located in the quaint fishing village of Matlacha. Matlacha is located in SW Florida, just east of Pine Island. The area affords the water enthusiast endless opportunities. The town has many art galleries and unique shops, many of which have the work of local artists. There are also restaurants and bars with daily live music. The home is located just 30 minutes from Fort Myers International Airport and only a few minutes from a modern grocery store, chain restaurants and shopping.

Whether fishing, boating or kayaking, Matlacha is a paradise. Either Fort Myers or Sanibel beach can be reached by car in about 40 minutes. If you have a boat, Cayo Costa and Sanibel are about 40 minutes away. Matlacha Pass has some of the best inshore fishing in SW Florida. The home has a boat lift which is available upon request. (We presently have our own boat on the lift)

We presently live in the North but have very helpful property managers only a few doors away. Check-in time is 3 PM on day of arrival and check-out time is 10 AM on day of departure. There may be some flexibility depending on the schedule.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I purchased the home after falling in love with the area some nine years ago. We loved the low-key nature of the town and the endless fishing and boating opportunities right from your very own home. Matlacha is a place where you feel like you went back in time yet all modern amenities are only a few minutes away.

Why the Owner Chose Matlacha Isles, Matlacha Isles-Matlacha Shores, FL, USA:
There is no need to deal with the hassles of the boat ramp. There are even multiple restaurants accessible by boat in only a few minutes. You pass by a bait shop on your way to the fishing grounds.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the outdoor living space after your time on the water. Sit in the large lanai or around the fire pit if you want to tell camp stories. You can cook your catch on the outdoor grill while someone else prepares the salad in the well-appointed kitchen.
