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.

Spent a week here in Jan '19. House was spacious, boat was fun, and location was great. Thank you!
Belle maison, propre et en bonne état
Le cadre est idéal et le quartier très calme. Accueil très pro. et de qualité. Les espaces sont grands et il y a beaucoup de place pour le rangement. Piscine agréable et propre. Le bateau est très bien adapté pour le plan d’eau. Dauphins, tortues sont visibles à quelques minutes en mer depuis la maison. Vacances inoubliables. Merci.
had a wonderful time
Awesome house and location!!
My wife and I came here for our honeymoon to explore the waterways and beaches. We lucked out with beautiful weather, sunny and 85. The house was clean and pool and hot tub were great. We enjoyed local restaurants but our favorite two were Pinchers and Crave(in ft Myers). Had some issues with the washing machine but the property manager showed us how to use it. The boat was awesome, a little older than expected but ran beautifully, and really made the trip. Overall it was a great trip and we hope to be back soon!! Thanks Phillip!!
Had a wonderful time!
Despite Hurricane Irma's attempt to foil our vacation, we had a great time. Our thanks to Philip (owner), Mary Jane (house manager) and Kevin (boat manager) for their outstanding communication and assistance. The house is beautiful, the boat is fun, and we can't wait to go back and catch more fish! Special thanks to Philip for the fishing tips and information. It was a great help!
Wonderful house and great pool!
This was a wonderful house for our family. Not only was the house clean and comfortable it also had a nice layout. We stayed there for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Our kids spent lots of time in the pool swimming for hours. With the covered lanai, we were able to enjoy grilling and eating outside in the shade. The property manger was very accommodating as we were not able to get there until late the first night. She made the process very easy to get checked in and out of the house.
This house made for a wonderful stay!
Boating, fishing, visiting beaches & waterfront restaurants, outlet shopping, eating a good restaurants.
