About the Property
Nature-lovers and artists alike love this fully equipped waterfront rental.
Get away to the Fishin’ Shanty, a waterfront hideaway on beautiful Matlacha Island. This versatile vacation rental has a master bedroom, an open single bed. (Low-key vacationers can even add a few more visitors using the two couches in the great room.) Whether you're escaping the busy world to do some fishing, want to connect to nature, or looking for an artist's retreat; the Fishing Shanty is a comfortable, relaxed place to do just that. Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, large patio with a gas grill, and a private dock! See the owner's art displayed on the walls, and explore the rising art community in Historic Matlacha a short walk from your doorstep.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

- This island is known for it's ability to take you away from the hustle and bustle of life, reconnect you with nature, and provide the kayaking, fishing, and weather you need to recharge your soul. A vibrant and growing art scene, as well as the Historic Matlacha Fishing Village (where this unit is located) make for a fun trip. Even though Matlacha doesn't have beaches the way Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach do, trips to visit nearby beaches make a perfect day trip (an average 45 minutes by car). We look forward to hosting you in our vacation home!...moreless
