Quaint and Cozy, Matlacha Cottages Boasts Colorful Waterfront Cottages and Beautiful Sunsets
Tucked between private homes, motels and seafood diners lining Pine Island Road, Matlacha's main road, Matlacha Cottages is a cozy resort with just three colorful cottages. No real estate is for sale. This is a vacation rental property and a perfect place to experience Matlacha.
All three of the cottages, the green cottage and the two pink cottages, back to the Matlacha Aquatic Preserve. One of the pink cottages and the green cottage have a private back deck that overlooks the water. Dolphins often come within a few feet to say hello. The second pink cottage has a water view but no deck. Each dwelling boasts a full kitchen or kitchette. Furnishings in all three are simple but comfortable. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed.
Prices start at $114 per night or $684 per week in the off season (May 1st to September 30th) and at $124 per night or $744 per week during peak season (October 1 to April 30th).
Matlacha Cottages does not have any amenities, but the sunsets over the water are worth the price of admission. Bait shops, fishing charters, markets, ice cream parlors, art galleries and more are within walking distance.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting snowbirds to the state in the late 19th century. Retirees continue to flock to the state. It's not hard to see why tourism has become the leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands spread across 10 acres.
The state has 1,250 more golf courses than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.
Florida, particularly the Keys and the Gulf Coast, were struck by Category 4 Hurricane Irma in early September, 2017. Towns will rebuild, perhaps this time with climate change in mind, making them safer and better equipped to handle major hurricanes going forward.
