My name is Philip, I am 42 years old and I work full-time as a project manager for a major Swiss bank in Zurich, Switzerland. I am an avid fisherman and diver and l love fishing, boating, diving and being on the water or in the water (sea, pool, hot tub). My local property managers Mary Jane and Kevin live 5min from the rental home and will take perfect care of you.
Philip purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Philip chose Pelican
When I bought the house in 2009, it was the middle of the housing-market-crisis and really a lot of houses were on the market. I looked at over 10 houses in the same category. I chose this one because it is very beautiful & spacious, with a big pool with lots of sun morning till evening and because its location is quite close to the exit of the canal system, which is important for me as an avid fisherman who is on the water every day. And I love the two coconut palms next to the entrance and the younger one (which I have planted some years ago) near the boat dock / canal - see how it grew on the photo. Also the neighborhood is beautiful, quiet, friendly, very safe and perfectly maintained. A word of advice for your safety as a renter: There have recently been some craigslist rental scams in Cape Coral/Fort Myers. For your safety you can: - rent via verified and safe portals like Homeaway or VRBO - focus on owners that are member longer than a year and have good ratings - verify ownership: check the lee county tax collector's page (property tax record) - pay only to accounts registered in the name of the verified owner - ask the owner for a proof of ID (e.g. passport, ID, etc.) - ask for a recent utility bill (water or electricity)
What makes this Villa unique
I love Cape Coral and this house because for me it is the perfect combination of sun, fun and adventure on the water (fishing, boating, beaches) and a luxurious home with all comfort (heated pool & jacuzzi, big LCD TVs, Internet, spacious rooms, 3 full bathrooms, comfortable beds, nice & big kitchen, central AC, BBQ, ping pong / pool billiard table, double garage, nearby shopping, outlets and restaurants, etc.). The optional fast and spacious 21' 150HP Hurricane Sundeck boat also adds a lot to a unique vacation experience. And for all fishermen: the boat is well equipped for fishing with fish-finder, all my spots marked in GPS unit, live-well, many rod-holders for safe storage and trolling, freshwater shower and a fish-cleaning table with running water right by the boat dock. And I cannot stress it enough: what matters a lot for boaters in Cape Coral is the distance of the house to the exit onto the bay - and my house is really located among the top 10% of houses, please check it on the map.

Exactly what we were looking for!
I spent over a week filtering through homes to rent during our January vacation to Florida, and picked Phillip's house ultimately. We were not disappointed! It accommodated our family of 5 with room to spare. The pool was perfect, and came in handy as our kids love to swim! There is a smaller beach only 10 or so minutes from the house that we would quick drive to catch the sunset, or you can go a bit further to some of the larger beaches. The house had everything that we needed to cook meals, wash clothes, and even take buckets/shovels to the beach. we were able to pack lighter which is so refreshing when traveling. I would not hesitate to rent this house again!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a detailed review, I really appreciate this. I am very happy that you and your family had a great time and I hope to welcome you again soon! Thanks.
Wonderful long winter weekend
The home was clean, the pool and spa were sparkling.
Thank you! I hope you visit us again soon.
Great location, nice and roomy house.
Thank you! I hope to welcome you again soon.
We stayed in the house for 2 weeks during Christmas, and rented the boat as well. Everything was perfect and Phillip, the owner of the house, is very helpfull and really want to do everything to make the stay as nice and comfortable for you as possible. I can really recommend renting the boat together with the house. Cape Coral is all about boating. Some really nice thing with the house is the covered pool and spa, that really keeps the temperature up, and also my kids loved the mini pool and ping pong table. Besides that, the house has everything you need, even a little closed office if you need to work during your stay.
Thanks for a great vacation Phillip, and your fishing tips was really good as well :o)
Thank you very much! I hope to welcome you again soon!
