“PERFECT GETAWAY!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is the PERFECT spot to get away from the world!! It it absolutely beautiful location and in a GREAT neighborhood and close to everything you may need (shops, beach, islands) The room was spacious and clean with a wonderful porch / balcony with an AMAZING view!!!! MAGNIFICENT sunsets AND from the small window on the other side of the room you can even see the sun rise in the morning too. The owners couldn't be nicer. They were always helpful, provided us with everything we requested and even gave us a ride when we had car trouble. We took a boat tour of the nearby islands and enjoyed dolphins, manatees, and all different birds. Waking up to a ready made breakfast on the upstairs porch overlooking the water, watching the osprey's fly by and the manatees surface to say hello - it was a delight!

Room Tip: I really liked the upstairs room because it gave you a higher view of the sunset and the osprey nest...

Bring a hair dryer - that's the only thing you'll need at this great Bed & Breakfast on Matlacha Sound, FL. Fridge and sink in room, binoculars and birding books provided. Room was spacious and even included a pullout couch. Upstairs porches join with view of ospreys nesting on a perch so close we could almost touch them! Beautiful view of the bay and Pine Island. Breakfast is served from 8-9 either on the porch downstairs or in your room. Nearby Matlacha Community Park has free parking, grills, restroom, boatramp, and kayak launch. Publix at the end of the road for incidentals.

Room Tip: Room 1 is next to a house being built but upstairs so has a great view. Perhaps ask for Room 2.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and miss a big Nor'easter snowstorm. The view from our room overlooking the bay was amazing; in the morning, at sunset, (especially), and in the evening. Breakfast on the lower deck with that view was equally spectacular. We saw an Osprey family with their babies, too cute, and Manatees surfacing in a bay we could swim in.
The rooms were comfortable and spacious, and decorated to give the guests a beach or
bay feel. It reminded me of Fire Island in NY during the summer. The hosts were gracious and knew so much about the area. We enjoyed talking with them. An excellent stay, and we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose any room that faces the bay.

I really couldn't say anything bad about this great little place on the west coast of Florida. The owners, Dianne & Bill, are super nice people. The rooms are bright, airy, and comfortable. It was nice to have a fridge and sink in the room. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Cereal, fresh fruit, coffee, juice, and a muffin or waffle. Not the biggest breakfast in the world, but we could all stand to eat a little less anyway. The views are amazing, the ospreys are neat, the manatees and dolfins are fun, and it was just an all around good experience.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this B&B in July of 2012 and loved it. We decided to return this winter, February 2013, and we are SO happy that we did! Bill and Diane are such great hosts! They are so nice and love to share their extensive knowledge of the area and the animal life at and around the inn. We stayed in the same great room. The view of the bay from our balcony was beautiful! Watching manatees pass by, fish jumping, boats passing, the osprey in their nest, and the sun setting from the balcony is such a relaxing, pretty scene! We really enjoyed taking the canoe out. We were surrounded by manatees in the canoe at one point which was an experience I can't even put in words. Dolphins also swam near the canoe! The osprey nest at the inn had three babies in the nest. It was beautiful watching them as the mom would feed them. We fished off one of the docks. My boyfriend caught three snooks in less than thirty minutes. The surrounding little historic Matlacha area is very cute. You can walk to this area from the inn. There are shops and restaurants to dine at, many with water views. The breakfast that Diane prepares in the morning is a great way to start the day. I very highly recommend this inn to anyone staying in the Naples/Ft. Myers area. This place is truly a gem! We look forward to returning again soon! Thank you Bill & Diane for another amazing experience!

I just spent a week over Christmas with my mother at this lovely location. Diane and Bill were not only provided a homey atmosphere to spend this special holiday, they provided lots of great info on the area and even had a card and a little gift for us Christmas morning. My mom is in a wheelchair and the bottom room had lots of room for us to move around in. We enjoyed our conversations with Diane and Bill as well as the great breakfasts every morning. If you want to get away from the hussle and bussle of Fort Myers, head to Matlacha and visit this fantastic B&B. The ospreys welcomed us and a trip out in the mangroves prooved to be an exciting time with the manatees. The location for sunsets is one of the best in the area. This place has it all. For birders, it's also located within a resonable distance to Ding Darling, Sanibel, Corkscrew Santuary & Venice Rookery.

Room Tip: I saw all the rooms and they were all clean and bright. We stayed in bottom room which could be acc...

We stayed only one night which was a pity. But we were a bit in a rush, with many stops before and after, as part of our world trip. Bill and Diane were very forthcoming, despite us leaving extremely early in the morning, even gave us some breakfast the night before so we could have a bit and a drink at 6am. Very hospitable, relaxing, nice, great views. Use the canoes for a ride.

Room Tip: We had a room with a balcony, but I think there are only rooms with balcony.
