    Affectionately known as the 'Rhinestone Fisherman' this fantasy Pirate/Ocean themed waterfront vacation rental will make for a vacation you will cherish for a lifetime. Matlacha (MAT-la-shay) is just 30 minutes from Ft. Myers, but this secluded fishing village is a world apart! Fishermen, artists, bikers, vacationers all rub elbows and share the love of its unpretentious atmosphere. Unlike some topnotch fishing destinations, the intriguing thing about Matlacha is its plethora of attractions for non anglers: galleries, shops, restaurants, landmarks, and visual curiosities. Golfers will appreciate golfing at the Royal Tee Golf championship Golf club located less than 5 minutes away. Fisherman can relax on their excursions in the knowledge that family members ashore will not be bored... more

    Additional Location Information
    Driving to Ft. Myers one day on business, I decided to take a trip through Matlacha. I was immediately struck by the old town atmosphere, the beauty, and overall feel of this village. If you close your eyes and open them you'd swear you were somewhere in Key West. The natural beauty of the areas only accessible by boat was another attraction for me.

Third year in a row 2 friends and I combined a stay at Rhinestone Fisherman with a 3-day fishing trip with Capt. Tim Sisemore. Everything was great. Guide picks you up at the dock, fish cleaning station is right there (you ALWAYS catch fish with Capt. Tim), and the gourmet kitchen is the perfect place to prepare the fresh catch... more

This is the second winter that my wife and I have stayed for a month or more at the Rhinestone Fisherman. We both love to fish and kayak and here we can combine both and think of the harsh cold winters back in Canada. The home/cottage is well furnished and comes with 2 kayaks and a couple of bicycles.

This place is amazing! My sister and I stayed here as half of our 8th Annual Sister's Adventure and wish it had been our entire trip. This place is so charming, so relaxing, so beautiful and did I mention huge! When we arrived we were greeted by Mark who helped us with our belongings and getting our kayak off the... more
