Get away to the Crab Shack, a waterfront hideaway on beautiful Matlacha Island. This versatile vacation rental has a master bedroom, and two "berth-like" bedrooms and a pull out sofa couch.

If you are bringing a boat, the old fish house marina (walking distance next door) rents boat slips !

The space
The Crab Shack is a 3-bedroom waterfront vacation rental that will remind you of sleeping on ship. With a master bedroom, two additional berth-like bedrooms, and a pull out sofa, “the Shack” is perfect for a getaway with the kids (or grandkids!) Newly renovated bathroom and pristine kitchen appliances making staying a pleasure. Water views from the master bedroom and spacious breakfast room make catching the sunrise (and sunset) easy! An outdoor screened in patio has a new gas grill, perfect for grilling burgers - or today's catch! Enjoy the local art scene, eat at famous restaurants, and recharge on the water. Whether you're on Matlacha for the wildlife - or to get away from your wild life - the Crab Shack is the perfect place to hang your hat!

Where you’ll be

Matlacha, Florida, United States

This island is known for it's ability to take you away from the hustle and bustle of life, reconnect you with nature, and provide the kayaking, fishing, and weather you need to recharge your soul. A vibrant and growing art scene, as well as the Historic Matlacha Fishing Village (where this unit is located) make for a fun trip. Even though Matlacha doesn't have beaches the way Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach do, trips to visit nearby beaches make a perfect day trip (an average 45 minutes by car). We look forward to hosting you in our vacation home!
