Why donna mello chose Pelican

We chose Cape Coral because of the waterfront location and the close proximity to some of the most pristine, beautiful beaches in the United States! There is usually a beautiful breeze coming off the Gulf and we can enjoy the beautiful SW Florida sunsets right from our canal! There are an abundance of great restaurants nearby right in Cape Coral as well as Downtown Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach!

What makes this house unique

In town for business? Mello-Inn is located less then 2 miles from the brand new Westin Conference Center. Check out their site here:

This home is stunning. Bruce and Donna have though of everything right down to stuff for you to take to the beach. Beautiful quiet neighborhood close to everything. Small problem with the air that Donna took care of immediately. I would recommend this home to anyone. We didn't want to leave!

Very clean, homey and great decor.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at The Mello Inn. It was equipped with all we needed to feel at home. Donna was most gracious and took care of all our needs. Loved the views and all the nautical decor. The home was conveniently located in a friendly neighborhood. We took short day trips to Venice, Siesta Key, Sarasota and Naples. I would recommend this home to anyone seeking a lovely relaxing getaway.

A week filled with great activities

Family of five had a great time staying for a week. The owners responded our requests very promptly. The house is well equipped and provided us with opportunities to swim, kayak and bike. We also enjoyed Netflix and Amazon movies at night. Highly recommend this place.

Pleasant Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house because other houses in the area were requiring the funds to be wired in advance. We weren't comfortable doing that. The interior pictures looked small but when we got there, it wasn't small at all. The house is roomy, tastefully decorated, and has modern stainless appliances. Each kid had his own room with tv for his game system. That was a lifesaver when it rained. Pool was fantastic! Kayaks were great. It was fun paddling out in the channel. There were bikes available. We felt at home instantly. Owners were hospitable and responsive, answered phone instantly when we had questions. Shopping is minutes away and there are lots of fun excursions in the area. Everyone had a great time! We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: I am very happy you enjoyed your stay. Your review is wonderful (I especially like the "tastefully decorated" part :) I put lots of love into the house and it's nice to see others be able to enjoy it. Thank you for the nice review! Donna Mello

Awesome place to relax and soak up the sun

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Mello Inn and Bruce and Donna Mello were super to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. Their home was super clean and had every amenity we could ask for. The pool was beautiful and the view of the canal and surrounding area was incredible. The location of the house gave us easy access to all the activities in the area. We will definitely be renting from the Mello's when we come back to Cape Coral. Thank you Bruce and Donna for letting us rent such a wonderful place for our family vacation. The Mueller's

The Mello-Inn is in a wonderful SW Florida location. You have countless options of day trips, including the Florida Keys by car or by boat. There are dolphin excursions & charter fishing boats within 2 miles of the house. Be sure to go out to Sanibel & Captiva Islands, only 20 minutes by boat or 1/2 by car! Enjoy fine dining right in the neighborhood, or venture over to Downtown Fort Myers for many varieties and something sure to please everyone.
