Carole and John would like to welcome you to their home in the beautiful Pelican neighborhood of Cape Coral. John has many fond memories of growing up by the ocean, and loves saltwater fishing. Now relocated to the upper Midwest, the winters can be long and hard. Living near the Great Lakes is just not the same as the sights, smells and sounds of the sea. We have vacationed throughout Florida with our family through the years, but Florida's west coast has a special attraction. We bought this home hoping to instill the same fond memories of life near the ocean in our children.

The west coast of Florida has lots to offer. Cape Coral has the perfect balance of a modern city with new housing, Gulf access, and affordable living. The SW Cape is known for its safe and peaceful neighborhoods, with easy Gulf access and many amenities nearby. Our particular location is the best. Tucked away, our 4 block neighborhood is surrounded on all sides by saltwater canals just like a moat. This adds to the feeling of safety and security as well as limited to local traffic only. Yet we are located less than 1 mile from downtown Cape Coral with all its shops and restaurants. It just couldn't be any more convenient!
You will enjoy picking fresh oranges and grapefruits for breakfast from the tree in our backyard. Or perhaps you will enjoy fishing or crabbing from the dock toward evening. Because the neighborhood is surrounded by canals on all sides with only one road in and out, there is a feeling of safety and security when the children go for a walk or ride their bikes in the neighborhood. Are you nature lovers like us? If so, look closely and you just might see a passing manatee, dolphin or turtle in the canal. There are also burrowing owls not far away and ibis, herons and egrets frequent the property. Enjoy the lush tropical foliage that thrives in this paradise oasis.
This had to be one of the nicest vacations we have ever taken. The house was absolutely gorgeous and very homey. It was much bigger than expected. There are sliding glass doors in several of the rooms, including the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a high bed, comfortable mattress, and huge bathroom with one of the biggest showers I have ever seen!. The home is situated on a canal and the kids had a blast catching jellyfish in the net. The pool was great to be able to cool off after a long day of tanning. It was just like it was described and more. My family loved it, and we would definitely recommend it to our friends!
The home was even better than we hoped. Very clean and well maintained. John was always quick to respond to any questions and provided very helpful information. I would definitely recommend this home to friends and family. I loved the fact that it was pet friendly. Our dogs had a great time too!
As advertised plus! John and Ingrid are laid back and easy to work with although there were no issues...beautiful home and can't wait to get back next year. Merrick's/Fishtales is a must for seafood...to purchase or to dine in....Paesano's for anything Italian or red meat to purchase.....neighbors Bob and Gretchen are friendly and helpful and their doggies Bean and Rocky are great...bring treats for them....Great location over all....
Had a wonderful time!! Accommodations were just as pictured. Layout of the house was fabulous. Spends many hours on the covered lanai eating meals, relaxing by the pool. We enjoyed our Christmas holiday with family from Canada and look forward to going back to spend more time. Beaches and shopping were close and the weather was beautiful!!!
I had such a wonderful time on my vacation! We stayed for one week, and one night. Why the extra night? Because the owner/property manager is amazing! They kept making the vacation even better, with extra nights, margarita machine, and a super amazing pool! He also provides lots of little things such as bikes, fishing poles, which you can use to go to the backyard and fish in the canal! I didn't catch anything, but if you stay, maybe you can give it a try!
Our month long stay was such a wonderful experience. From the beautiful landscaping to the overall amenities of this villa was more than we expected. All the rooms were furnished so well with updated furniture. The Master Bedroom and bath were very spacious and located on the opposite side of the other two bedrooms and bath. Ideal for our guests who visited us. The open kitchen located next to the large Family room was great for entertaining. Access to the patio and pool from either the dining room, kitchen or family room through sliding glass doors was so convenient. The solar heated pool was perfect for our grandchildren, and the fishing in the canal was so much fun. Just about everything we needed for our stay was provided, including the propane gas for the big, four burner grill, all the bedding, kitchen utensils, flat screen tvs, washer & dryer, weekly pool and lawn service, and on and on. My wife and I highly recommend this vacation villa.
We enjoyed our stay at this vacation villa. The owners were easy to reach and accommodating during the booking process and during our stay. We felt welcome the moment we unlocked the door to their home.
The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. It was a pleasure to take morning walks in the neighborhood or just sit outside and gaze at the canal. We even saw some manatees one evening.
The house was very clean, neat and decorated attractively. During the winter months it was a treat to see flowers and trees blooming in the yard and on the patio. We were able to eat lunch at the table on the lanai, swim in the solar heated pool and sit in the sun on the comfortable loungers. When the sun was too hot, there was a comfortable seating area where we could relax in the shade.
We appreciated that the villa was pet-friendly and our small dog settled in comfortably. She also appreciated taking a break from the winter weather up north!
It was nice to have a garage to park our car. The owner also provided some “extras”, including beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas to take along if you decide to visit one of the local beaches for a day of sun and sand.
The Cape Coral area is close to many wonderful attractions such as Sanibel and Captiva Islands. We also enjoyed day trips to Naples, Marco Island and Sarasota for sightseeing. There are great restaurants to try out and the shopping is fantastic at the Miramar Outlet Mall. There are also brochures in the home and the owners send emails to keep you informed about local attractions, restaurants and events.
We hope to return this lovely home in the future.
