Matlacha Real Estate
Step back in time as you enter the historic fishing village of Matlacha (pronounced “mat-la-shay”). Located in Matlacha Pass, this little gem is a bit of “Old Florida”. The postcard-pretty sunsets, fishing boats, charming cottages and tiny motels are delightful. Night or day, people fish from the bridge and wave as you pass.
You can search for unique gifts at the art boutiques on the main street and enjoy a meal while you watch the dolphins play offshore. Try Bert’s Bar and Grill for Friday fish frys and live Cajun/country music by “The Yard Dogs”. The Sandy Hook on the bay has great steak and seafood. The Perfect Cup is the place for breakfast.
Matlacha Homes and Condos MLS
There are no high rises here to spoil the view, but real estate is in high demand. Choose from original fishermens’ cottages with flat roofs and wood-beamed ceilings to 1930s short-stilt homes to older tiny waterfront mobile homes. (Most waterfront cottages here are occupied by loyal seasonal tenants).
Small commercial storefronts that sell fresh fish, art, and souvenirs are also intermixed with local homes. The charm of the village is allowed to flourish thanks to its low percentage of building and zoning codes.
