We stayed here for 4 nights in March. We loved the location and watching the ospreys and dolphins from the balcony. The Sunsets were beautiful. Bill and Diane are really wonderful at helping their guests make the most of their holiday by making excellent suggestions for day trips and places to eat etc. They are very kind and down to...

We spent 4 nights in this b&b in February 2015. These were the 4 coldest days in Florida in 15 years. We were desperate because we had planned to kayak and snorkel and the air was terribly cold with a strong, icey wind. We had come for the dolphins and manatees and the crazy weather scared them away. Manatees DO... More

We stayed for 4 nights and let me just say that the owners, Bill and Diane are excellent hosts. The room was clean and spacious. Also, we felt very much at home. We enjoyed breakfast on our balcony and the sunsets...We had great conversation with Bill and Diane as well as other guests! We will definitely go back!!

My husband and I have been coming back to this adorable, relaxing, wonderful B & B for the past 3 1/2 years. Bill & Diane are such wonderful people / hosts! We can't get enough of this place! We go twice a year. With its adorable set-up, amazing views of the water & sunsets, great breakfast with that amazing view,... More

We stayed for two nights at the end of a month-long FL sojurn. This area of FL, the historic fishing village of Matlacha and rural Pine Island are a sportsman's and birder's paradise - a real antidote to the large resorts and strip malls of Fort Myers. This B&B was designed as such with a wonderful full porch which overlooks... More

This is the first time that we have been in this area and are so thankful that we found Bayview Bed & Breakfast. the owners Bill & Diane were an absolute delight to meet.

We stayed at this wonderful B&B for 8 nights and it still wasn't enough time! It was way more than just an escape from the snowiest winter on record in Massachusetts. It was like visiting family. Dianne and Bill are masters at making people feel at home. From watching manatees swim by while eating breakfast on the deck, to checking... More

In high season, finding a place in Matlacha is tricky. Think ahead. The A-Bayview B&B is a wonderful place to stay. The proprietors, Diane and Bill are terrific people, the rooms are spotless, and the view memorable. Look for the manatee off the dock or just gaze at the water. Only a mile from "downtown" Matlacha, the Bayview is perfectly... More

We stayed at this wonderful inn ran by Diane and Bill for 4 nights this past week. It was wonderful, it was magical, it was peaceful, it was perfect. From the nightly sunsets viewed from our balcony to the breakfast tray in the morning, we couldn't have asked for more. The inn was spotless and Diane and Bill were an... More

Bill and Dianne are exactly what we needed, the space easily become our home and the sounds and antics of the birds were all the entertainment we needed. (There is an osprey nest on site) We enjoyed exploring the surrounding aquatic preserves, the mangroves and the islands. Look no further if you want peace and quiet and beautiful sunset views...
