About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom pool home on canal.

Please come and enjoy our 2BR / 2BA 1410 Sq ft. POOL 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 with 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.

Either Fort Myers Beach or Sanibel Island can be reached by car in about 40 minutes. If you have a boat, Sanibel or Cayo Costa are about 40 minutes. Matlacha Pass has some of the best inshore fishing in SW Fl.

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

About Paul and Petra Schultz

My wife and I purchased the home after falling in love with the area about 8 years ago. We loved the low-key nature of the town and the endless fishing and boating opportunities right from your very own house. Matlacha is a town where you feel like you went back in time yet all the modern amenities are only a few minutes away.

Paul and Petra Schultz purchased this house in 2012

Why Paul and Petra Schultz chose Burnt Store

Enjoy the outdoor living space after your time on the water. Cool off in the pool and filet your own catch on the fish-cleaning station.

Happiness is this Heated pool in Matlacha

  • 5 of 5

Matlacha is a wonderful, quirky little town that marries

flower-child vibe with a down-to-earth angler’s paradise.

This lovely home made exploring it a dream! Very comfortable beds and couches,

the most attentive hosts imaginable, and a yummy heated pool

for relaxing, all contribute. There’s no close beach without a drive, but a sunset cruise on the canals, a warm, mineral springs an hour away, and the freshest fish

you’ll ever grill, make it a very, special, one-of-a-kind vacation! Thank you,

Petra and Paul!

We loved our stay at the Blue Lagoon!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Blue Lagoon for the holidays. The house is warm and relaxing. We felt very comfortable and the house was extremely clean. The kitchen is well stocked with beautiful dishes, glasses, and cookware. By far the best rental we've ever rented with VRBO. Enjoyed sitting outside by the pool. The patio and dock area are well landscaped with great outdoor furniture and cushions. Great neighborhood with a grocery store about a mile down the road. We absolutely loved our stay and highly recommend this rental. Thank you!!!!

Matlacha Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this was a pleasant and comfortable stay. Fish were jumping and the temperatures in Matlacha were in the 70-80's all week. It was nice to have a place with a pool and a dock to increase our viewing of the tranquil neighborhood and canal life. Loved being close to the local restaurants and art galleries of Matlacha as well as local necessities like Publix and other stores. Loved the fun colors and decorations.
