About Tammy Chandler
We have lived in New York since being married 30 years ago and are inching our way to living in a MUCH warmer climate! We have used vrbo for family vacations for about 10 years and had wonderful experiences with them so we naturally wanted to list our home on vrbo for those times we can't be there. We both got certified to scuba dive in the last couple years, enjoy the outdoors and value our down time with family. Some of our most precious memories were those years we spent a week together at various homes throughout Florida with our four children. We hope that our home will also make some memories that you will cherish for a very long time!
Tammy Chandler purchased this House in 2013
Why Tammy Chandler chose Pelican
We looked at 20 houses in 2 days when we visited Cape Coral in July and this house was number 20 and when we walked in it was a big WOW for us and the realtor! We felt this was a home that others would find welcoming, comfortable, and fun! We wanted a home on a salt water canal, with a pool, within an hour of an international airport, within a couple hours of diving and within half an hour of the beach. So this house hit the mark! We have set it up with families in mind, to be nice but comfortable and inviting. We hope that you will find it to be a great place to rest, relax and reconnect with those most precious to you!

Nice house, centrally located
We have enjoyed this rental for two years and it is a very nice home, but like many areas in Cape Coral..there is alot of construction going on and it was a bit noisy this past visit. Many homes being built right by this house and the construction noise was very loud and started early in the morning and went thru out the day.
Other than that we enjoyed getting away from the snow from up North.
Perfect peaceful getaway!
This house is great! Minutes away from various beaches and restaurants. The salt water pool is fun and well maintained. The house is clean and Tammy and Jill are easy to work with. We had a blast and will be staying here again.
Thought the house was great and pool and kayaking we're fun. Seen an alligator on kayak adventure
Thought the house was great and pool and kayaking we're fun. Seen an alligator on kayak adventure. Would definitely rent this home again. House manager was very helpful when needed.
So glad you enjoyed your time at Journey's Rest and got to enjoy the pool and kayaks! Kayaking is one of my very favorite things to do when I am there. Glad you got to see the gators too.... although they make me nervous when I'm kayaking! Hope to see you again in the future.... until then, be blessed!

Spacious House and Great Location
Our vacation was all that we expected. This home is well equipped with so much room and the pool was excellent, along with the weather. The kitchen has every appliance you would need to get your day started and then the gas grill was there for any BBQ dinners.
We loved our stay so much, that we have booked again for next year!
Thank You Tammy for the Welcome basket, that was a nice surprise!
Janet & Norman
Thank you Janet and Norman for the great review. We were very happy to have you at Journey's Rest and so very glad you enjoyed your time there! We have tried to have all the accessories available so people can come and enjoy their stay.... plus I like to cook so having a well-stocked kitchen is important to me! We look forward to having you again next year! In the meantime..... enjoy your time back home through the summer knowing you have a winter retrieve!

Spacious House in Great Condition with lots of Perks
We stayed for about a week, loved the size of the house and layout with great separation between the master and other rooms. Used the kayaks and saw an alligator in the canal on our trip and tried to catch some fish off the dock with the provided fishing rods. Jumping fish everyday in the canal... wish they would have landed on my hook. Swam daily in the heated pool and cooked 2 dinners on the gas grill. Fourth stay at a VRBO property and this was by far the best experience.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Journey's Rest! We also love watching the fish jump and occasionally see a gator in the canal. In January we also had manatees at the end of the dock! You never know what you will see!! Please keep us in mind for future trips to Cape Coral!
This property was very well kept, clean, inviting, spacious, and comfortable. We really enjoyed the pool because it was maintained using salt water, and not chlorine. The pool was really clean and maintained well. The area around the home was quiet and peaceful. It was a really nice change of scenery from our busy lives. You could see the fish jumping in the canal fro m the pool and it was entertaining. We really liked the electronics, especially the kids using the Wii. There was a variety of movies available to watch using the 3-D technology, which was fun. The kitchen was fully equipped with utensils and very well stocked on items that you mean to live there for however long you are staying. The home manager, Jill was very helpful and nice. We are extremely satisfied that we chose this property because it was a great time!
