Why the Owner Chose Matlacha Isles, Matlacha Isles-Matlacha Shores, FL, USA:
We fell in love with the laid back atmosphere and Old Key West lifestyle of Matlacha over 7 years ago. My friends and I began fishing in the north and slowly migrated to warmer waters to escape the bone chilling cold, especially in early spring. My good friends Capt. Terry "the Fish Whisperer" and Capt. Paul from "Team Tarpon" have been instrumental in our decision to chose Matlacha. Matlacha was that hidden gem which was recently featured on HGTV and other TV programs as a great place to own a beach house or second home. Not to mention some of the best fishing in Florida, from fishing the flats for reds, mangrove snapper, snook and trout to fishing the deeper waters for tarpon, grouper, shark and mackerel. Matlacha is close to everything from fast food, grocery stores, to the local bars and restaurants. This town really has it all. It's a great place to relax and enjoy the local artist with shops and displays throughout the town or to kick back at some of the local pubs. It truly is a whimsical historic fishing village and the last remaining "Old Florida".
