Stayed 2 nights October 2015 in the small pink cottage, waterfront. It is a very tiny kitchen but all else is OK. We had the covered parking which is hard to back into with the busy road. The back yard is beautiful with some fun fishing. Will go back.

Matlacha cottages have a Key West vibe with their bright colors. My husband and I stayed in the waterfront efficiency. Tiny, tiny kitchenette...but I managed to cut up limes for my gin and tonics without much problem! The dock was a fantastic place to sit or fish. The mullet jumping out of the water is amusing to watch, but the... More

A friend and I were looking for a rental close to the Pine Island area to fish. We stumbled across the Matlacha Cottages. What a find!!! It was a small but friendly town with everything we could ask for. We kept the boat at the dock 75 feet away from the back door. WOW that was awesome. After a long... More

Hello Chad, Thank you for the wonderful write up. What I find odd is that you indicate you brought a boat but speak of the tarpon you hooked onto from our dock. Must have been a good fight. We'll see you the next time your in town. Michael G. Owner More

I try to really give details in my accomodation reviews, not just it was "great and relaxing", so get ready for details! I spent three nights in the Pink Water Cottage.

My husband and I spent 2 glorious weeks at Matlacha Cottages. Our stay was absolutely exceptional!

Step back in time and relax. The pace of life is much slower with nothing fancy, just a clean relaxing place to get away from it all. There are a number of local restaurant that serve great local fish and wonderful cold beverage. A must place to relax.

“The waterfront efficiency is probably the quietest in the bunch. Cottages sit right on the main road so lots of road noise.”
