About Scott Menard
Vida de la Isla translates Island Life. We feature 3 unique island vacation rental properties located on the world renowned, historic Matlacha Island.
Scott Menard purchased this Villa in 2014
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.
What makes this Villa unique
Matlacha is island life personified! No need to travel outside the USA, we're right here in sunny Florida.
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.
Adorable and comfortable!
Very nice place! Furniture and beds very comfy! The location was awesome. Walking distance to everything! Very relaxing week! Thanks!
Our pleasure to host such nice people.
I loved my stay in Matlacha!
The best place we ever stayed! So much character and color. comfortable furniture, great showers. The bedding and towels smelled wonderful. The location was perfect. Within walking distance to so much.
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'.
