About Michèle Van Elslander - Slunecko

We are a polyglott Belgian family with 4 children and love to travel with friends.

Michèle Van Elslander - Slunecko purchased this Villa in 2012

Why Michèle Van Elslander - Slunecko chose Pelican

We fell in love with Florida, the Sunshine State Florida and its tropical climate. This property allows to spend vacation time with 2 or 3 families. Cape Coral's many canals allow for easy gulf access and they are always fun to discover. Our children love to explore Sanibel, Captiva and Cayo Costa, find sea shells and ride the boat. A lot of fun for the whole family. This vacation home is ideally located on a salt water canal and gives us a relaxed tropical feeling every day.

What makes this Villa unique

The access to the Gulf of Mexico, unique Key West style and Gingerbread features, golf courses, all amenities close by and situated in a very quiet cul-de-sac.

                                                                      Joann B.

                                                                      Great spot for a family reunion. Although we were just 3 couples, the home can accommodate an additional 8 people since it had an additional 2 bedrooms up stairs each containing 4 twin beds. The house was great. Sitting on dockside was pleasant. I recommend this home.

                                                                      Great stay at beautiful property

                                                                      We had an awesome vacation at this beautiful home which ticked all the boxes. The home manager Dorit was very nice and communication with the owner was very easy. The pool was heated and the spa was so nice to enjoy. Definitely a house to recommend.

                                                                      The property was just as described! Everything was there and very well taken care of.

Everything was as described in the listing and the owners were wonderful to work with. The property management group was very responsive to any and all requests. We felt welcomed from the time we arrived till when we departed! The house and grounds were in fantastic condition. This property sits on a wider than normal canal so it really makes for a great setting. You won’t be disappointed with this rental. I know we enjoyed it!! Thank you so much for making our vacation a great one!
