About the property
- Villa2583 sq. ft.
- Half Baths1
- Minimum Stay6 - 14 nights
Pool, Jacuzzi, 3BR, office, free Wi-Fi, gulf access, SW Cape Coral
Our fully air-conditioned villa, approx 2600sqf large, was newly constructed in 2012 on a 10000sqf ground area according to our plan & furnished and decorated by us.
The well thought floor plan & the furnishing is specially designed by us for a sophisticated guest, we even want them to feel at home in the villa, as we spend few weeks here every year.
The villa lies directly at a salt water canal with access to the Gulf of Mexico & has the following features:
- 3 Bedrooms (of which 2 have king size beds)
- 3 Bathrooms & 1 outdoor shower at the pool
- Dining room
- Office with a desk & free Wi-Fi
- Breakfast room
- Large kitchen with bar
- Children's high chair and baby bed
- Living room with 65' TV
- Pool, spa & gas grill
- Boat dock at the canal, sea access
- and so much more...
Latest technology and design helps with saving energy - special insulation of walls & ceilings, heat pump as pool heater, latest air-conditioning & heating technology and much more. 'Go Green', we are for it!
The entire house is constructed, furnished and decorated in a very high quality design - with granite surfaces in the kitchen and bathrooms, wooden kitchen cabinets, pavements at the pool area in exclusive custom-made design, energy efficient heating pumps for the pool and Jacuzzi, extra insulation for roofs and walls as per the latest standard (so that the refreshing coolness of the air-conditioner remains inside the house and the heat remains outside), double insulated glass on all the windows and much more...
A large pool area with separately heated Jacuzzi was essential to us personally. This is designed facing south, so that you can enjoy the warmth of sun at the pool year-round - that is a perfect holiday in Florida.
At the private dock in the house, you can dock your boat and drive directly from here to the Gulf of Mexico or even to Cape Harbour just for a dinner.
In Florida you don't need a boat license and many boat rentals with German speaking staff offer you affordable options to spend a holiday with a boat.
We will be pleased to refer you to a reliable company upon your request.
The two-door garage is there at your disposal, so that your vehicle is left cool and secure.
You will usually enter the house through the garage which is provided with an electric door opener, inside which one or two vehicles can be parked.
There is also a storage room in the garage for pool toys and beach gear.
The modern Frontloader washer and dryer are placed in the passage to the house, you can wash and dry your clothes or towels here as and when desired, an ironing board and iron are also available.
Living room/dining room/kitchen:
From here you will then directly enter the large living, cooking and dining area– the central place of the house and the 'meeting point' for all the guests.
The large open kitchen is fitted with extra high cabinets, electric stove, oven, dishwasher and an oversized American refrigerator/freezer with ice machine and filtered ice water.
You will find all the accessories in the cabinets that you can imagine for every day living in the house:
- Pans and ladles
- Crockery and cutlery
- Glasses and cups
- Coffee machine, kettle, toaster
- and much more.
You can enjoy your meals directly 'at the source', take them at the bar or at the breakfast corner depending on the time of the day with view over the pool and canal or use the separate dining room for it, where the favourite roofed pool area is found (lanai design).
With a ceiling of almost 12ft high in the large living room there is a 65' LCD-TV available to you including numerous television channels, blue-ray/DVD player, surround systems and a radio with ipod/iphone – docking station.
The office is another getaway, you can read a book here on the sofa in peace and quiet, listen to music or simply dwell on your thoughts looking outside the window.
If you are like us and also have to work at times during the holiday or simply just want to browse the internet, there is a desk available here for you, which you can obviously make use of.
Similarly with the telephone, local calls within USA and Canada are available free of charge as a flat rate- you can also receive incoming calls, the number is there in the house directory.
There is a direct LAN connection available in the office, the rest of the house and pool area are covered by wireless network, so that you can check your emails conveniently even sitting at the pool or gather information for your trips.
Terrace, pool and spa:
The approximately 1700 sqf large pool area, which is provided with the customary Cape Coral screen (air-permeable mosquito nets over the entire area), is definitely the highlight and the common meeting point and residential place for a holiday in Florida.
The almost 30ftx15ft large pool has a flight of stairs and slopes gently to the back. It is illuminated at nights and thereby allows happy moments in the pool after sunset.
In case it gets too cold once in a while, the pool can be heated up quickly using a highly modern and very energy efficient air heat pump, without causing enormous electricity costs.
The pool water is filtered and disinfected with the latest skin-friendly technology, where using chlorine is almost completely avoided. Apart from being skin friendly and crystal clear water it also has the advantage of not causing you to get red and irritated eyes any more and also after the weekly cleaning and inspection by the pool man you can immediately use the pool again unlimitedly.
We are thrilled by this technological innovation and would not want to miss it.
You can use the Jacuzzi built-in near the pool anytime; it heats up within a few minutes and definitely brings you hours of relaxation and entertainment.
The entire pool area is operated by an external management outside the house.
After bathing you can rinse off in the outdoor shower or refresh your self in the pool bathroom/ toilet accessible directly from the terrace, without having to walk around the house with wet feet.
An oversized table with 8 chairs is there in the roofed area of the terrace and invites you for all activities, whether sharing mealtimes, playing cards or enjoying a nice glass of wine or a cold drink in a cosy atmosphere. You will find refuge here from the sun or in the rare case that it should rain.
For sunbathing there are 6 comfortable sun beds, 4 side tables and 2 large parasols available, so that you can fully enjoy the Florida sun.
A gas grill with 4 burners is there for you to use (must be cleaned upon departure), gas cylinder is not included in the price.
When the day comes to an end, there are 3 bedrooms available to you.
The master bedroom has an oversized king size bed, a walk-in closet with racks and direct access to pool, a large flat screen TV, a large bathroom with separate shower, a bathtub and 2 wash basins and a separate toilet.
The other two bedrooms are on the other side of the house:
The bedroom onto the pool (bedroom 3) also has a large king size bed, walk-in closet, flat screen TV and direct access to the pool and to the common bathroom, which is provided with a very large shower, 2 wash basins and separate toilet and also serves as a connection to the other bedroom (bedroom 2).
This one has 2 large single beds (twin size), walk-in closet and a large flat screen TV.
In case you don't want to share the bathroom, the pool bathroom directly adjoining bedroom 3 can be used from here.
The beds are all provided with an allergy-friendly coating on top of the mattresses, which is hygienically cleaned after every change of tenants.
All rooms have an electric radio alarm clock, if at any time you want to wake up early for your outings.
Of course there are also enough towels available for the bathroom and pool, which are cleaning or changed after every change of tenants.
A separate baby bed (travel bed) and a kid's-high chair are there for the little guests, the pool can be secured by a special 'baby fence' for small children.
Please inform us before arrival, if you are coming with a small child – so that everything can be left ready.
The beautiful garden is planted with tropical plants, flowers and tall palm trees, the Florida lawn is watered automatically by a sprinkler system. A gardener takes care of the plants and lawn weekly, and you should not be doing this job during a well-deserved holiday period :-)

About Ralf & Pamela Meisner
Living in a small town in Bavaria (part of Germany), we are visiting Cape Coral since 1996, mostly after a roundtrip through other US states for relaxing and having fun. Our son was born in the year 2000 and he has become a great fan of our US trips.
Ralf & Pamela Meisner purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Ralf & Pamela Meisner chose Pelican
We were always looking for a central location in Cape Coral and as a consequence, we built our own custom designed home on a central and quiet lot. It`s designed for a relaxing familiy vacation and you`ll enjoy it.
What makes this Villa unique
The quiet and central location, the view from the pooldeck or the breakfast nook over the canal - it`s a dream. The sound of the nature - and 5 minutes away you can enjoy restaurants and amusements - that`s a vacation at its best.

Great House With a Great Pool
House was as pictured and was very nice. Good location.
The deck/pool is incredibly nice. The Southern exposure provides great sun from morning until night.
Smooth check in/out. Everything as expected promised. Highly recommend this property.
We were disappointed with a couple of items. Not enough frustration to give less than five stars. Fixing these things would turn a GREAT rental into a PERFECT rental. Even with these MINOR frustrations we would still rent the property again.
1. The pool cover wasn't in place prior to check in and this resulted in a very cold pool and took a couple of days, and I'm sure a lot of electricity, to get it up to a usable temperature. We had to pull the cover from the garage and put on the pool. Every other home we've rented in Florida has had a "spool" for the cover poolside. Makes it easy to put the cover on/off and allowed for the cover being in place prior to our arrival.
2. Cable/Internet performance wasn't very good. Internet was limited to 3-5MB download speed per device. Upload speeds tested at 10MB. Very odd for "up" to be faster than "down". This made watching Netflix and rented streaming movies difficult. Watching cable itself wasn't very good either. The HD channels had constant pixilation so we had to watch the SD channels. Guide on cable box was useless. Everything listed as "Unknown" as program information.
Again, these were two minor frustrations and did not keep me from rating 5 stars nor would it keep me from renting the house again.
We only had 5 days but enjoyed every minute!
Very private and quiet yet only minutes from everything.
The home had everything for a perfect holiday
William & Mary
The property was amazing, the house was amazing 😀
We had a great time and loved the house. The owners were amazing and very responsive to any questions that arouse. The house had everything you would need, it was perfect. I was a little sad about the check out time as it was early 10 am, was used to hotel time of noon. I contacted the property manager and they were unable to do late check out, understanding as they had guests coming in. I was upset over property manages staff showing up at 9:35am wanting to know why we were not gone, and stating we needed to be gone by 10am. She was rude and sat outside waiting for us to leave. I was waiting for trash guys who were leaving so I could bring in barrels and waiting for wash to finish of towels we used to shower as requested. I was taken back by the rudeness and pressure. She also showed up first day we were there to see if all was ok while talking on her phone, I had a question about the hot tub and trash. and she seemed annoyed.
Loved the Villa and the Climate
After so much US travel this was our first visit to Florida. As always the US is so user friendly and standards are high. Additionally we found the climate very agreeable being around 80F in the day with soft sun and sea bathing was even possible. Coral View is a new villa with a big pool and cage. and private dock. It is very well decorated and furnished and the heated pool with jacuzzi means you can just stay at home if you want. Particular features are the large open plan living/dining /cooking area which opens to the pool and the large master ensuite . Entry via the garage using the remote was quite convenient after you get the hang of it and everything in the property was functional and maintained.
This part of South East Florida seems to have a very pleasant climate and is also convenient for the airport, Sanibel and the Everglades. We also took the 4 hour boat trip to Key West although it is a long day out. Cape Coral / Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach represents quite a large inhabited area so that when you go to the coast sometimes there is quite a lot of traffic. Sanibel is beautiful but very popular and getting to Lovers Key and Barefoot beaches takes about an hour. Of course you dont have to go out and everything you want is round the corner from this property. How many supermarkets and petrol stations do Americans need?
Cape Coral is very flat so biking or running is easy and there is always a safe place on every road. We used any of the numerous public tennis courts and rented bikes from Hollywood Bikes which seemed to go ok. It is noticeable how polite everyone you meet is but driving standards are not as high as Northern States.
There is an awful lot of property in Cape Coral and this style of 3 bed villa with pool is not uncommon. This one appears to be nicer and newer than most with a big pool and dock. The owners were easy to deal with and responsive. I may do this kind of trip again next year but I am aware I need to book early, the best villas are very popular.
Thank you for this review!
A wonderful home and a great place to stay.
The home was so nice. We relaxed by the pool and just enjoyed our stay. Everything is new and beautiful. It was a wonderful vacation!
Thanks a lot!
Very nice home in Cape Coral
We enjoyed staying in this home with our two children (ages 7 and 18) for a week. The home was exactly like the pictures online. The kitchen was well stocked and the house was very clean. We used the beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler located in the garage and traveled 30 to 40 minutes to several local beaches. The pool area is very comfortable and the pool water was very warm. We had a very nice relaxing vacation at this home and would highly recommend it.
Located in the famous and quiet Cape Coral South West (SW), oriented to the south, located by the waterside with access to the sea, quiet central location, 5 minutes away from Cape Harbour, 3 minutes to the nearest supermarket (Publix), restaurants, banks, shopping facilities, clinics and various other shops and establishments very nearby (in walking distance), in 1 minute you reach the Chiquita Blvd or Cape Coral parkway, Cape Coral is well divided and you can drive fast in all directions with the car, without having to drive on the side streets for a long time.
