My husband and I have visited Matlacha and we have stayed at Bayview with Diane and Bill. It continues to be a wonderful respite, a time for reflection and the perfect opportunity to enjoy nature. Each room we have stayed in has afforded us a beautiful sunrise, manatee and dolphin sightings and nesting ospreys as we awaited a perfectly suited... More

We were really hoping for a fabulous stay based off of the reviews on TA, but all in all it came up short and here's why: The "free breakfast" is not worth your time unless you like generic stale cereal, generic tang, and reheated frozen pastries. Save your time and go to Sanibel and enjoy a real breakfast. This is... More

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

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
