We just got home from the Fancy Fish and can’t say enough good things about this house! The house was decorated perfectly for Matlacha - fisherman with an artsy flair. You can catch most any kind of specie of fish right off the dock, as well as crab. We saw dolphin, manatee, stingray, redfish, snook, and large schools of mullet. We fished during the morning/afternoon then came back and enjoyed the pool during late afternoon, and fished off the dock during the evening. The house is conveniently located, close to restaurants, bait shops, and the county boat ramp. Parking is excellent, with a large enough lot for our truck and boat. Shelley was an absolute gem to deal with. We are already planning our trip back to Fancy Fish next year. Hopefully we can stay two weeks, instead of one. Reserve the Fancy Fish, you won’t be sorry!
Cool😄Thanks so much. We think you are the best and so did our cleaner. Hurry back
Best Vacation house ever!
This house was amazing! Set up very cute and worked perfect for our family! Our kids swam in the pool and My husband and i enjoyed fishing off the dock! We caught Jack fish, Catfish, pufferfish and a baby bull shark and lots and lots of blue crab! We seen so much from just sitting on our dock, we seen stingrays, tons of manatees and lots of dolphins and tarpon too. This was our best vacation ever and cant wait to book here again!!!
I liked y'all from the first vrbo request😄I am glad you caught so many fish. We look forward your next visit. Thanks for coming Shelley
A new family favorite vacation spot!
We absolutely loved this property! The location is spectacular...right in the heart of cute little shops, yummy restaurants, and fishing bait. We had the best time enjoying the paddle board and the kayaks! We loved seeing manatees and dolphins from the house dock! We were even able to see a baby manatee swimming alongside its mama right at the dock’s edge! We rented a boat for the week from the Monroe Canal Marina and would definitely recommend them, as well! We had a blast playing on the boat during the day and then enjoying a dip in the pool to end the day! Shelley and Mark made sure we had everything we needed and also gave us several dining recommendations that did not disappoint! Our only regret is that we didn’t book for two weeks! We travel fairly frequently and often do not repeat an experience because we like to explore new places...we are already making plans to return to the Fancy Fish next year!!! It was a family favorite! (We visited with our three teenage kids.)
Great Location & Property in Matlacha
This property has a great feature thats seldom missing in reviews. PARKING ! Since it’s a double lot size, with pool & home each sharing one, there’s ample room for a boat trailer up to 24’ & 2 - vehicle’s & room to spare. Secluded tropical setting with coconut trees, Inground pool & lots of dock space/boat lift & plenty of room to fish. Caught a snook & black drum off dock. House is listed @ 1,000 sq ft, but layout makes it feel bigger & is decorated very fancy in a fisherman’s theme, giving it the deserving name of “Fancy Fish”.
Shelly is the most easy going owner I ever dealt with, making this a very stress free Matlacha vacation.
Thanks!!! You know y'all are our special guests and we look forward to your coming each year. You know how to have good family fun.
Great location! Plenty of parking. We could walk to shops & restaurants. the dock & outdoor space is awesome! There was plenty of space inside.
The guys had a great time fishing & got picked up from the dock for their fishing Shelly is great to work with! We hope to return in the future
You better come back....we LOVED YAll . Nobody could be easier to work with. We were the lucky ones on this deal. Still want to treat you to blue dog😀� Hope hubbies make it down for fishing like we discussed. Thanks again for being so nice
This home is wonderful. There was a slight issue with the pool when we first arrived, contacted Shelley and she was right on it. The dockage is incredible for fishing or just hanging out listening to the music from Bert's bar. We saw so much wildlife - different kinds of birds, pelicans, rays, catfish, blue crabs, ladyfish, mullet etc. Dolphins every morning and some evenings, even a manatee and her calf were right in front of the dock one morning. The pool was perfect for cooling off after fishing in the sun (fish, take a dip, and fish some more). The kayaks were another bonus for a peaceful ride through the mangroves. The location is very convenient. Plenty of good restaurants very close by and the Publix grocery store is 5 minutes away. The house is well equipped for cooking and the blender especially got a lot of use for those frosty drinks. We look forward to another trip to Matlacha and definately hope this rental will be available. I would highly recommend to anyone coming to this area to take the Tropic Star ferry to Cayo Costa State Park for the day. It was beautiful. Don't forget the sunscreen. Thank you Shelley!
This was one of the NICEST groups we have ever had. From the first phone call, I knew this was going to be a good experience. Please come again!!!!!
Will do shorter term rentals if home available one week before arrival date. Easter 2016 (March 26-April 2) $1500
