The cottages are small, rather quaint, but close to neighboring cottages. They are walking distance to the little town. The town is picturesque, with a fabulous chocolate shop right on the main road by the marina. The servers at the local restaurants were friendly and had lots

Lovely stay in the green cottage. The pink cottage is being redesigned/remodled and is not being rented. As usual , had a fantastic short stay and even caught an angry blue crab on a hook! It did not blow away in Hurricane Irma. !

We love our little cottage on Matlacha! The street out front, the Main Street through the island, is noisy and often packed...but step outside your door and around the back and visit another world. Right on the water of Matlacha Pass with palms and a great deck! Dolphins and

This is a great place to go it is near many places to shop and eat. The area is beautiful and unique, you can purchase many hand made gifts for everyone. I love to visit this place each and every time I am near by.

Dear Runabout, I believe the best way to answer that is through our guest comments. We are rated 4.8 out of a possible five rating on Trip Advisor. That said, we do not live where there are five acres between cottages, here you can reach out to your neighbor. We have a communal dock and barbeque area. We all agree that the natural beauty of our natural surroundings makes up for any minor inconvenience brought on by innovation of the twenty-first century. Lastly, we do offer a full house rental as well as having the duplex and at any one time our maximum capacity is only ten people. Please keep in mind we live on an island: one road in one road out. Thank you for inquiring about Matlacha-Cottage. Michael

"Some rooms face double sliding doors along water."
"The Pink Waterfront cottages sits behind another cottage so the road noise is reduced."
"The waterfront efficiency is probably the quietest in the bunch. Cottages sit right on the main road so lots of road noise."
"I didn't see the other cottages."
"The smaller bedroom is street side so has more road noise."
