Your own dock on the bay. Walk to the Perfect Cup Cafe, restaurants, art galleries and shops. We completely renovated and re furnished this cottage in 2011 for our own use a few weeks a year. The rest of the time we share it with others. For us, it is paradise. Matlacha [MAT' LA SHAY' ] is an old fishing village protected from high rises and modern desecration by historic district zoning.
We are told that somewhere in this listing it says "no pets." That is not correct, your dog is allowed. We just can't find that statement to remove it!
This property is owned by Matlacha Properties LLC. Your hosts and Andrew Peck and Chloe Dresser.
A local Realtor couldn't have put it better - Her description is no exaggeration:
'Matlacha Florida is one of the few old Florida villages left. Located on Matlacha Pass which connects to the Gulf of Mexico the fishing and boating is fantastic. You find lots of local color and flare. Everything in Matlacha is located on the water. Fresh seafood served in all the restaurants. Art galleries and events. Live music every week end. Located on the Great Calusa Blueway, Matlacha offers some of the best Kayaking experiences you could want. Paddle through the mangroves. See manatees, dolphins, eagles, osprey. This is Paradise! '
As of 2012 We now have for our guests 2 kayaks, a single and a double, and we have 2 bicycles.
We have wifi. The password is written on the modem. We do not do television, so there is not cable. There is a TV with DVD player and local library has many movies to choose from.
