Why Scott Menard chose Matlacha
The pictures alone made us want to buy this unique cottage. We imagined ourselves there before we every saw it! That's what we wanted for our guests.

You will never want to leave. Great cottage, close to everything
We had a wonderful stay. The cottage has everything you need to make this a perfect home away from home. We walked to town every day. We kayaked into the bay. There is a wonderful park behind the Blue Dog - just a short walk. Pine Island center also has a great park and heated pool. The people in the neighborhood are so friendly and welcoming.
Scott and his wife were just a phone call or text away and responded immediately if we needed anything.
Matlacha is a charming village. You feel like you have stepped back in time. Everyone is friendly and everything is laid back. A truly great place to unwind and relax. There are 2 grocery stores only minutes away - one on Pine Island center and the other toward Cape Coral so not far if you need something. In addition there are many restaurants, several within walking distance.
There are so many things to see and do in this part of Florida. We will definitely return.
Better than we expected! Super clean, fresh and fully stocked with everything! Our only disappointment was we didn’t bring our own paddle boards. The kayak is in need of minor repair.
Walkable to everything. We also brought along our own fire TV device and worked great. Adorable fishing village.
A great cottage with a super layout
We enjoyed our stay on Matlacha so much we decided to buy a home. The friendly atmosphere walking in the neighborhood as well as the shops and bar/restaurants was refreshing.
Comfortable home, completely updated
The house in Matlacha was in an area convenient to restaurants, a boat ramp and shopping. It’s on a narrow canal that’s fine for a smaller boat, but was very tight for our 24’ bay boat. The parking is very limited as well, in fact had we not been able to park in the owners other property next door; we would not have had room for our boat trailer and truck. The house itself was nicely furnished with everything we needed and was very comfortable. It’s unfortunate the water in the area of Matlacha, Boca Grande, and surrounding areas have been affected by the flow of Lake Okeechobee, so that was a bit of a disappointment in the water’s appearance, but the area in general, really is beautiful. All and all, it was a relaxing get away and if a kayaking/boating/fishing trip is what you’re after; this is a great place, otherwise there’s not much more to do.
Terrific getaway cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at The Coqui Palace. It was very clean, beautifully decorated, and so conveniently located. Being right along the canal was perfect and we enjoyed taking the kayak out. Scott was very accommodating. We had a great stay and will definitely be back when next visiting.
Great stay in Matlacha
The property is lovely, just as shown in the pictures. Beds are comfortable, large flat screen TV in the living area, plenty of room. Setting area on the channel was nice. Caught catfish! Dining at the local restaurants in the area is good and reasonably priced. Suggestion: cable/dish television and sharp kitchen knives.
While being a world renowned fishing village, the area is also known for excellent kayaking, emerging artists, and excellent eateries and entertainment. In less than an hour you can be scouring the beaches of Sanibel or Captiva searching for the latest shells the tide has left behind. Of course, Vida de le Isla, is all about the relaxed island life, so you'll probably like to do a lot of 'nothing'.
