Overview

Pelican House Rental Photos and Description

2000 sq ft Pool/Spa Home With 3 BR/2 BA - Sleeps 6

Why stay in a hotel when you can have all the comforts and amenities of a private home with a heated pool and spa in your backyard. And did we mention cable TV, WIFI, and the master bedroom has a Sleep Number bed!

This 2000 sq. ft. professionally landscaped home with its palm trees, curbed flower beds, and manicured lawn will provide you with the Florida lifestyle experience you desire and deserve!

Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood in the desirable southwest area of Cape Coral. Convenient to restaurants, shopping, and major roads and arteries, you are minutes away from the beautiful beaches of Sanibel and Captiva islands as well as Ft. Myers beach.

As you enter the home there is a formal living room complete with a 50 inch high def flat screen TV, a Blu Ray player, and a large, comfortable 9 foot sectional. The TV has cable access to over 100 stations.

Next, you'll discover a bright, sunny great room with a sitting area, kitchen, and breakfast nook. The sitting area is furnished with a comfortable wicker couch, large matching chair and ottoman. The breakfast nook has a contemporary glass top table and matching chairs.

Immediately adjacent is the kitchen, completing an engaging, open floor plan that makes conversation and relaxation easy, even while preparing a meal! The entire area opens up to the lanai and pool with two sliders and is further enhanced with a picture window, also overlooking the pool.

When you want to get outside to enjoy the wonderful Florida sunshine, the lanai and paver stone deck is ideal for kicking back and enjoying all the best that the Florida lifestyle has to offer.

You'll enjoy relaxing in the hot tub or taking a dip in the unique Pebble Tec finished swimming pool, which is electrically heated for year round comfort. And all of this is completely screen enclosed and equipped with plenty of padded lounge chairs.

You don't have to go in when it gets dark! The pool and deck area are transformed at night with pool lights and enhanced lighting features surrounding the entire area. The unique nighttime ambiance is something you're sure to enjoy and will add to your overall outdoor experience.

If dining poolside is something you enjoy, you can cook up a feast on the large barbeque grill and dine under the lanai on the comfortable outdoor patio dining set.

When cooking inside, a completely upgraded, fully stocked kitchen awaits you. You will be provided with all the necessary culinary tools and accessories required to make your meal preparation experience a pleasant one. The kitchen provides plenty of lighted counter space as well as a convenient breakfast bar for casual dining.

In addition to the breakfast bar, another casual dining option is the aforementioned breakfast nook, conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen in the great room area.

If a less casual dining ambiance is desired, you'll enjoy the formal dining room. Natural light enters the dining room via a large window that also offers views of the pool.

So, whether it's the dining room, the casual breakfast nook and breakfast bar, or al fresco by the pool, Cape Coral Palms has the right dining choice to fit any occasion.

Our house sleeps six and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The spacious master suite includes a flat screen TV and a comfortable queen size Sleep Number bed so you can adjust the firmness to your specific preference. In addition to a dresser and chest of drawers, there's a walk in closet with California style shelving to store and organize your clothing.

The master bath has an over sized dual Roman shower, a soaking tub, and vanity with dual sinks. Adjacent to the master bath, separated with a privacy door, is a pool bath with an additional sink and vanity. This has a convenient outside door so it's accessible from the pool area.

The second bedroom features a queen size bed as well as a dresser and large closet. The third bedroom has a day bed with a trundle that converts to a double twin and also has a large closet.

The third bedroom also serves as an office with a large desk, printer and bookshelf. And the house has WIFI to keep you connected for business or personal internet access.

The second bath is conveniently located between these bedrooms and features a large updated shower and vanity.

Everything about Cape Coral Palms evokes the Florida lifestyle! Book now and see for yourself why everyone is choosing the beaches, attractions, and climate of southwest Florida as their year round vacation get away destination!

About Tom Moran

My wife and I currently live in PA and always dreamed of retiring to Florida. We truly hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do and invite you to visit and let us know how we can help make your Florida lifestyle experience a great one!

Tom Moran purchased this house in 2012

Why Tom Moran chose Cape Coral

We have friends from the Cape and once we visited, we knew this was where we should be. We are a few years away from retirement, but in the meantime want to make our home available for others to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

We love the great room layout of the family room/breakfast nook/kitchen area and how it opens up to the pool and lanai.

We were also taken by the beautiful landscaping and secluded back yard. Lastly, the master en suite sealed the deal and we knew this was the house for us!

Excellent family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (hubby, 5 year old, & 2 year old) drove all the way from Chicago and had a wonderful stay at this house for 1 week in August. We loved the private pool, hot tub, and the location. Easy drive to Sanibel beaches, restaurants (Paradise deli & grill!!), and grocer. Loved that there are childproof locks on the sliding doors to the pool area; made me feel perfectly safe with our young children! Stay here! You wil love it!

Way better than staying at a hotel

  • 5 of 5

No complaints here. We will NEVER stay in a hotel again. This house was perfect for me and my husband and would be perfect for a big family, plenty of room. We spent most of our time out on the lanai and in the pool.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and for the special welcome treat :)

It was like staying in our own private resort

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice and well taken care of. It had all the comforts of home yet with the Island living feel to it. The swimming pool is beautiful and the spa heats up in a matter of minutes. The "pool cage" allows for outside living without the Florida bugs! The bathrooms are updated and very comfortable. It has a bathroom that can be accessed from outside in the lanai area without tracking through the house. It was only three of us that stayed but it could have been a great place for a bigger family. I wish I could put into words how nice it is. It was a delightful place and we would love staying there again. Thank you very much.

Cape Coral Palms has Cable and WIFI and is located in the desirable southwest section of the Cape, convenient to restaurants, shopping, marinas, and water parks.

Just minutes from Ft. Myers, Sanibel, and Captiva beaches, our house allows day trips to these and many other southwest Florida attractions.

If you enjoy adventure, there are Everglades airboat and alligator excursions and numerous nature and pleasure cruises. You may also enjoy the JN Ding Darling National Refuge on Sanibel Island.

If shopping is your thing, try the Tanger or Miromar outlets in Ft. Myers or one of the many malls in the Cape Coral and Ft. Myers areas.

For the sports minded, three major league baseball teams play spring baseball in the area. The Red Sox and Twins in Ft. Myers and the Tampa Bay Rays in Port Charlotte. If golf is your game, there are six courses to choose from in Cape Coral alone, with many more in Ft. Myers and the surrounding areas.
