About Catherine Dwyer
I am a retired Teacher married to a Graduate Civil Engineer. He was the Managing Director of an International Steel Company. We are recently retired, and spends two 6 week vacations a year in our house. We live in The North West of England.
Catherine Dwyer purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Catherine Dwyer chose Pelican
The property is a spacious detached house. It is well designed. Built by National Builder David Weekly. We bought this property as a retirement home and for our friends and family to vacation with us. We chose SW Cape Coral as it is a safe neighborhood. The house is only 5 minutes walk from Camelot Isles, and an early morning 20 minutes walk to Cape Harbour provides lots of opportunities to spot Burrowing Owls, and to admire the beautifully kept gardens of the SW Cape Residents. Cape Coral is a good location and offers easy access to a range of different experiences. A Half Day trip to The Everglades and Chokoloskee, provide a unique experience. During longer stays it is easy to take The Key West Express from Fort Myers and spend a weekend in Key West.
What makes this Villa unique
Quiet Select Residential Area, with easy access to all of life's essentials. South Facing Waterfront Plot. One can watch the sun rise in the morning and set in the evening. The house is in a slightly elevated position, which makes the best use of the daylight hours. This allows for the simple pleasure of sitting sipping sundowners in the spa, while the sun sets.The house offers a large Owners Retreat where you can wake up and watch the sun rise over the canal..

Spacious and enjoyable villa!
We have just returned home from a wonderful (ignoring the summer storms) summer holiday staying in this lovely villa.
We as a family agreed, it was one of the best villas we have stayed in Florida and this was our 12th visit to the state.
Positives: The owner is very helpful, efficient and informative, the villa was spotless and very well equipped. The space was incredible, especially outside with shaded spots, sunbathing areas, wonderful pool and excellent BBQ. The TV had a great choice of channels and the supermarket was very convenient. Plus, 30 min easy walk to the harbour for drinks and food.
Negatives: Cleaning fee (which we were aware of before hand) by management is very high - currently $195 and the electricity allowance is only enough for the house to tick over empty - this is according to the management company at check out, so you have to pay for every unit you use additional to the rental fee. Lastly, the management company were good at not intruding in your holiday but they made it very clear they just wanted payment during the two interactions we had with them.
Despite these negatives, it was outweighed by our wonderful holiday in a beautiful villa, so thank you Cathy for sharing it with us!
Wonderful vacation! Home was beautiful!
Loved our vacation!! Would recommend this home to anyone!!
Better than Home Away
We rented this property May 3rd through the 10th 2018. The property more than met our expectations. There was plenty of room for the family and than some. The location was excellent, close to shopping, restaurants, and beaches, I didn't get to see a manatees, however I did get to see a dolphin at Fort Myers Pier. That was cool, also fishing off the dock in the back of the property was a blast!! My husband caught a sting ray. Unheard of according to the locals. My granddaughter loved the swimming pool. Overall our experience was more than we could have hoped for, loved our stay and look forward to renting again. Thank you Catherine for sharing your home with us, and making my first visit to Florida a memorable experience.
This home is amazing!! The owner Catherine is extremely nice and helpful. This home has everything you need: huge lanai, beautiful pool and hot tub, huge master bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, PVR and on demand TV/movies. It was our paradise for 3 months! We would sit by the pool and watch the jumping fish in the canal. We felt so lucky to be there. Thank you Catherine for everything!
Truly a Tropical Haven
We stayed at Tropical Haven for 2 weeks at the beginning of November and were blessed with beautiful weather. What an amazing villa the photos don't do it justice thank you Catherine for sharing your home. There was just me and my husband so we only used the back of the house but we loved the openness of the kitchen (very well stocked for all your cooking needs)and living area. It is furnished to a high standard and felt very homely. We loved the bathroom and walk through shower and the closet wow it was massive. The oversized pool and spa deck was perfect for sitting out in the covered lanai or the extended deck in the sun all overlooking the canal and the jumping fish, we even saw some rays down by the boat dock along with spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The villa was just perfect for our needs and we ended up spending a lot more time than we intended just relaxing there. The neighbours we saw were very friendly and when the time came we were sad to leave it felt so much like home. There are lots of bars and restaurants locally we especially liked to walk to the Overtime sports bar and grill and drive to the Boathouse which kind of became our local lovely friendly staff,great food and awesome views. Sannibel and Captiva Island stole our hearts the beaches and shelling ,pods of dolphins,gopher tortoise such a special place. We have stayed in many villas over the years but this has to be our favourite.
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our house. We built it as our retirement home. We love the area and the easy access to a wide variety of Floridian experiences.
