What a beautiful and relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5

After a rocky start (another owner double-booked our intended house, and we were left with two nights of hotel rooms) this beautiful "Waterfront Paradise" saved our vacation. Clean, well-maintained, beautifully decorated, and superbly located. Our 9-year-old grandson loved the spa and pool, and the birds and dolphins were incredible. Thank you for rescuing us. We will stay again, starting next year!

A gem in a quaint little town!

  • 5 of 5

This Waterfront Paradise in Matlacha was wonderful! It is super clean, very comfortable, and well kept! The kitchen was nicely equipped for cooking, the beds and linens were nice, and of course there is the view! Almost every day we saw dolphins swimming by the docks - so awesome! Fishing from the dock was a hit - a variety of fish were caught and released pretty much every day! There are so many different types of birds - so always something to watch - especially love watching the Osprey nest! The outdoor patio area is set up so perfectly - we grilled dinner one night and ate outside and it was so nice! The pool and spa aren't large, but we still enjoyed it a lot! It is heated, which is nice. It would be nice to be able to keep the heater going until later in the evening - to be able to star gaze while in the pool would be wonderful! We tried it one night, but it was still a little cool at night when we were there in early March, so we didn't last long! Another thing we really enjoyed was being able to walk to everything in, dinner, drinks, ice cream, candy, etc! The house is located on the main road through Matlacha, so you do hear road noise when in the bedrooms. But with that said, it was not enough to keep us awake. The owner was very easy to deal with and was quick to respond to our questions before arrival. We would definitely recommend to others and if come back to the area we would book again.

Our first visit to Matlacha was a wonderful vacation. The House was beautifully equipped !

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this well equipped and spotless home. The views are amazing with an osprey nest right off the dock! I enjoyed the heated whirlpool while Bob fished off the dock. The beds were so comfortable . We walked to nearby restaurants and shops. It is a busy area but fun to be part of the artist community.Thanks for making this visit special!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights. Rental was well equipped and the property location was in a very convenient location to all the shops and restaurants. I fished from a kayak and this was a perfect location for fishing.

a relaxing, comfortable perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about Matlacha and this adorable house? It was perfect. The location is great and we never got in our car the entire time we were there. Surrounded by water, great seafood, and a fun and artsy atmosphere, I have never felt so relaxed in my life. The house has everything you could want and need for a relaxing holiday. I can't wait to go back and do it all over again !
