Home to several delicious waterfront restaurants and bars, Matlacha is a water lovers playground. There you will find multiple fishing opportunities, watersport rentals, art galleries, and unique shops. Cape Coral is an ideal location for Southwest Florida vacationers, and you'll be just a short drive from the stunning Gulf beaches of Sanibel, Captiva, or Fort Myers Beach. A slightly further drive south will have you in Bonita Springs or Naples, where world-class dining, shopping, and lifestyles await you. To the north you'll enjoy the beautiful towns of Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, nestled along the Charlotte Harbour. Seasonally you can enjoy the Spring Training facilities of the Red Sox or the Twins, and of course year round golf, nature, and cultural activities as well. The owner and property manager have provided an informative Guest Directory that you will find in the home as great resource for things to do and see during your stay.

The property is 22 miles from the Punta Gorda Airport, 29 miles from Southwest Florida International Airport, and 26 miles from Fort Myers Beach

No pets are permitted to stay on the property.

Please note: The tides change and neither the management company nor the owner of the home have any control over the water levels in the canals and are unable to guarantee specific water conditions and accessibility.

Since SW Florida is a sub-tropical climate, it almost never gets close to freezing, which leads it to being desirable for humans, geckos, and insects. Despite routine pest control, it is possible for an insect or gecko to get inside the property. Refunds for finding geckos or insects are not given.

The owners have a Ring doorbell video cameras mounted on the exterior of the home for insurance purposes.

The owner has installed a sofa cover over the white living room sofa pictured in the listing.

We really enjoyed are stay in Matlacha Isles. The home was beautiful. The accommodations were amazing. The beds were extremely comfortable. The home is on a canal with gorgeous views. We had a blast using the kayaks that were provided. There is a heated pool to take a dip and the outside lounge area is impeccable. There are many great restaurants, shops and activities nearby. We will definitely come back here again.

It was our first time in Matlacha and we loved it! From the moment we walked into the door the home was bright, stylish (cute island artwork and framed maps of Matlacha area) and clean and with absolutely everything we needed, or imagined we needed. This is not your normal rental. It is a very nice vacation home and very well appointed. There are three bedrooms, two with queen beds, and one with two twin beds. All the beds were super high end comfortable, which is something we look for in a rental, along with two full bathrooms that were also well equipped with fluffy towels and super clean. There are pretty ceramic hardwood designed floors throughout the home which feels airy and fresh, especially for island living. The house is located in Matlacha Isles, where the back yard faces west and the dock abuts to one of the many canals, which was a new experience for us and a fun one. The back patio area is where we spent most of our time (because we had beautiful weather) when we weren't cooking in the kitchen which is equipped with anything a cook could want, including all kinds of glassware for any type of drink. The outdoor seating area was luxurious with the most comfortable outdoor furniture we have ever experienced! We lounged, read books, listened to birds, and enjoyed our daily cocktails on the back patio. There is a small dipping pool which was perfect for cooling off or sitting by to soak up the sun. We watched many sunsets on the back patio which includes a very nice gourmet grill to cook on. There are two kayaks in the back patio area along with a fish cleaning area so you can fish then clean your own fish, which we hope to do next time. We took the kayaks out along the canal, through the mangroves, and open areas and enjoyed all kinds of bird sightings and a possible manatee sighting as well. You can also kayak to a few local restaurants. We kayaked to Miceli's Restaurant, which has an excellent variety of food (and fun bands), or you can kayak further toward the Gulf. It is close to so many conveniences, including a Publix and liquor store just down the street. Pine Island is an easy drive as is downtown Matlacha. We went to Pine Island and hiked around a natural preserve, Galt Preserve, which hosts a large bald eagle nest on the preserve. We also drove to Sanibel, an easy and pretty drive, and enjoyed a beautiful day on the island. There is so much to see or do in the area and everyone is super friendly. Neighbors waved to us when we were kayaking, and boaters were polite and friendly. The neighborhood is super safe and easy to access. We are already looking forward to and planning our next visit.
