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.

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.

Had a lovely relaxing vacation at The Blue Lagoon. The house is well equipped, everything you could possibly need and a great location. Restaurants, art galleries and stores all very close by. The house is very comfortable, would highly recommend this property.

This house is beautiful. The interior decoration is really fun and so so pretty. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you could want. Couches, chairs, beds, loungers, lanai seats are all incredibly comfortable. Paul and Petra are very responsive (even on Christmas day!) when we had questions. Then, on top of the beautiful house with the kitchen and the tv and the comfie couches and the decor and the screened in lanai with the ceiling the PRIVATE HEATED POOL. We swam in that every morning and every night. It was delightful, as was sitting on the chairs on the dock and watching the little fish in the canal. Matlacha is a cute town (and every server at every restaurant was GENUINELY NICE) and there are some fun walks with beautiful views to be had there and on Pine Island and Sannibel. (Although traffice is HORRENDOUS going to Sannibel, so factor that in if you drive). It was one of our best, most relaxing, vacations. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing, relaxed, homely stay at the Blue Lagoon. The description on the website is spot on, but the pictures do not do this place justice.

The bedrooms, bathrooms and sitting areas are clean, bright, airy and quirkly decorated (but tastefully).

The kitchen has everything you need so we enjoyed cooking there and eating in the dining room.

The lania overlooking the excellent swimming pool was wonderful, watching the sunset and the odd electrical storm was great.

Plenty of toys in the garage for the pool, along with sunloungers and table/chairs.

Down at the water side, more chairs to allow you to watch the birds at play, and we had the joy of seeing mother and calf manatees.

Fishing was good and it was a short walk back to the huge fridge for beers.

Laundry room was at the side of the kitchen, both items appeared brand new.

We had fun on the bikes supplied.

Eating locally in Matlacha is fun, Berts, Sandy Hook and the italian were used.

if you to travel further, we used Uber Taxis to RumRunners at Cape Coral Marina, excellent and the taxi was $28 return, very cheap.

Ensure you go to Sanibel Island, and visit the single shop at North Pine Island for quirky gifts. The fleamaster fleamarket at Fort Myers is different and worth a visit if the weather isnt sunny.

Paul and the property manager infrequently contacted us to ensure all was okay.

We felt at home within hours and this is one of the best houses we have ever rented, I know its the usual 'we will be back', but we will be in 2018. There was only two of us, but it would be great for kids or 4 adults.

Thanks Paul for allowing us to stay.
