I had a great experience staying at the Bayview Bed and Breakfast in Matlacha. This B&B is in a natural environment where you can watch the sea birds come and go. Quiet and peaceful. Near the fishing village of Matlacha but with plenty of convenience to shopping.The hosts are warm and friendly, the room spacious, clean and quiet, and the... More

Diane and Bill provide the ideal environment for rest and relaxation. Located on a quiet residential street, there are only 3 rooms available, all of which have a large patio facing the water and 2 long docks. The 2 top rooms on the third story provide the best views of the dolphin, manatee and many birds in the area. The... More

My wife and I recently spent three days at A-Bayview Bed and Breakfast while visiting relatives in the Cape Coral area. The B&B is located on a quiet street with bedrooms facing the water with a view of Pine Island in the distance. Our room on the top floor was large, very clean and afforded all the comforts of home... More

This small B & B is a totally unique place. The reason : the two fantastic people: the Owners. The warmest feeling I had ever experienced. My bedroom was extremely clean; the view from my terrace was just spectacular! Bill was very helpful with all the information around the area; whereas Diane provided maps and fresh fruits from the garden.... More

I planned a quick getaway for my daughter and I before school began, and chose the funky fishing town of Matlacha. This was hands down the best getaway for a mother daughter duo on a budget. We felt safe and incredibly welcomed by our hosts and the town's offering of fun, food and relaxation. The proprietors, Diane and Bill, are... More

While we travel to many areas, we appreciate the low key down to earth locations without fancy and frills. This is the place which is in a delightful location on the water where you can view manatees and dolphins as they pass by. The osprey has their nest just outside off the deck. Breakfast is charming, but in one review... More

We stayed at this wonderful location for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary. It felt as though we were staying with family. Bill and Diane were there for advise on the area and good conversation if we wanted it, but also gave us our privacy. Matlacha is centrally located, perfect for exploring this area of Florida. The Inn has beautiful... More

We visited Bayview in early April for a week. We loved the breakfasts with coffee, fresh fruit, orange juice, etc. In particular, we loved the waffles with fresh blueberries and the fresh baked muffins. Bill & Diane taught us about manatees, ospreys, and palmettos. We loved the breezes from the water and the water views in both directions. What a... More

Too much to see and do . . .not enough time! We stayed 4 nights & could only use canoes (free with room) two days, but while we were out we saw numerous dolphin, witnessed sting rays feeding, floated amongst the manatee, discovered Night Egrets nesting, and enjoyed innumerable osprey diving, nesting, mating, and feeding their young!
