About Cheryl (owner/manager)
As the owner I've spent the last 30 years visiting this area of Florida. There are so many things that are special to me, the shelling, the beaches, the sunsets, the restaurants, the weather, the people and most importantly the beauty of the nearby islands is what makes it all so special. During my many visits to Florida I knew someday I would make it my home, that dream came true for me in 2011 and my goal is to now share the beauty of this area with you and your family, my goal is to make your vacation time or holiday away as memorable as it can be and for you to enjoy your stay and share in the joy that I know Florida to be....!!!!!
Cheryl (owner/manager) purchased this House in 2013
Why Cheryl (owner/manager) chose Pelican
Why stay in a Hotel when you can stay in your home away from home. Since the first day I moved here to Cape Coral, I wanted to share this area with others so that they too can enjoy the beauty that Florida has to offer. My property is your home away from home with it's comfy cozy beach decor, the huge lanai boasts a large waterfall pool with plenty of room for the family to enjoy endless fun in the sun. The backyard's western exposure allows for great sunset views. I want you to feel at home and enjoy your holiday as though you were in your own home so I've included beach supplies to include lawn chairs, beach umbrella, beach table and a beach cooler so you can spend time on the many nearby beaches I love to visit. It's proximity to Sanibel and Captiva Island make this a great location to enjoy some of the best beaches and shelling locations in the world. There is so much to do and so much to share that you can spend a lifetime here...!!!!! Which is why I now live here and have this property to share with you...!!!!

Beautiful house, great location, friendly owner!!
This house is absolutely beautiful inside and out! The decor and furnishings are gorgeous, the beds are very comfortable, and the pool area is fantastic. The centralized location made it quick and easy to get around Cape Coral. Sanibel, Captiva, and Fort Myers Beaches are just a short drive away. The host was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be staying here again!!
Beyond our expectations
This retreat has everything you could possibly want, Cheryl stocked this rental better than our own home. The home was centrally located closed to most points of interest and it was located in a quiet neighborhood. We came to Cape Coral to purchase a home and Cheryl has been the perfect host. We loved this place so much that when we scheduled our closing and needed to stay a little longer we opted to stay in Cheryls' other rental, Summer Retreat two!
From the time we entered the house to the time we had to leave we felt welcome. Cheryl is wonderful to work with and after meeting her it felt like we had been friends for years. Everything in the house is exactly what you would hope for and more! The way the house is decorated is gorgeous. And, the pool is so wonderful. We were in there day and night.
Truly a Summertime Retreat
When you first enter this lovely home, you really feel like you are at the beach. The home is so lovely decorated with a shore theme that is so relaxing. My family of 4 had more than enough space. The pool area & lanai are so beautiful and we spent so much time out there, especially my 10 year old son who did not want to get out of the pool. The neighborhood is so quiet & my daughter & I would ride the bikes that Cheryl has provided even in the evening. Cheryl has thought about everything to make it so easy for the traveler. From getting into the home up until departure she was always there for us even meeting us on our first day as well. We highly recommend this lovely house for anyone that wants to get away to lovely Cape Coral.
Wonderful place! Everything you need is here!
We just spent a week here. It was a wonderful week, with everything you need to make your vacation memorable. Cheryl is outstanding to work with and see's that her guest are well taken care of! The house is beautiful in a nice neighborhood. Cape Coral and the Fort Myers area has about everything you could want. Shopping, putt putt, beaches, and just down the road, the Everglades. We had a wonderful vacation!
Thanks Cheryl for everything!
