About The Owner

Welcome to our Vacation Rental. We love coming to Cape Coral. It is truly a relaxing, fun area. We love kicking back and enjoying the Lanai area. We take our grandkids up and down the canal in the paddleboat and hunt for Iquana's, otter,s and many different birds native to the area. When not cooking on the grill we enjoy many of the Great Restaurants in the area. Some of our favorites are Iquana Mia's on Cape Coral PKY and Marzetti's, Sandy Hook on Mattleche and Red's on Pine Island. We try to get to the area several times a year. We hope you will choose our house. We are very confident you will love our home and the area. Al & Pat

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Pelican

As I spoke of in our Profile. We love the area. The Beach and Yacht Club Beach and Cafe are less than 7 miles from our house. If you want a little more Beach and Shelling area Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel are about a 30 minute drive. Nice shopping, restaurants and attractions are close by. We have enjoyed the Live Theatre in Ft. Myers. The airport is conveniently located and within 25 minutes of Our Home.

What makes this house unique

Our Home is large enough to entertain or just find a spot to retreat by yourself. The Lanai becomes the main area to relax and enjoy. It is large and the pool is unique and inviting. Don,t forget the canal. We have a great Dock, paddleboat (which we love) you can feed the fish or take the Pole out of the garage and fish. The house is totally equipped with everything you need and I am sure there is nothing you will wish was there because it is there. We hope you would choose our home and see for yourself.

We, (52 & 64 yr olds), just spent 2 weeks in Al and Pats' home, and cannot say enough about the overall condition, presentation, amenities and extras that we encountered. Everything was superb! Not one thing to say anything negative about. From the beginning, the booking and contact, from mostly Pat, was seamless and straight forward....no surprises.

Having vacationed in the SW Florida area for 8 years, this was our first time NOT in Captiva.

Although we did have "a beach day" there, we couldn't wait to return to the privacy and peacefulness afforded with their home.

Took out the paddle boat a few times to survey the neighbourhood and discovered that we were almost alone. Anyone we encountered while on the canals were very friendly as they engaged us from their pools or docks. Be careful not to get caught out in the blazing mid-day sun though :)

Fed the turtles every morning, a couple of ducks one day, and the otter graced us w/ an appearance on occasion. We could hear the owl all the time, but it is well hidden.

Shopping, and all sorts of restaurants are all a short drive away. However, w/ the set up of the home we preferred to dine in or more aptly dine outside under the lanai....love the sliding service window from the kitchen.

Easily 50% of our time awake was spent floating and relaxing in the pool. When it rained, and it will this time of year, we sat outside playing dominoes, cribbage, reading, etc.

This was an amazing vacation, and we hope to return again next year.

Thanx to Al and Pat !

What a wonderful vacation we had because of your hospitality. The house was beautiful. Everything went absolutely smoothly from the time we sent the deposit until we received our deposit in the mail after our return. Don't be surprised if you hear from us again next year. Thanks so much --The Doland family

Excellent stay. Our Daughter plays collegiate softball and her team plays its spring games nearby. We hope to stay here again next year. Quiet and secluded yet close enough to shopping. We spent lots of time in the pool and at the canal dock feeding turtles, fish and birds. Well worth the money. Owners were great to work with.

Our Second Time Here!

  • 5 of 5

After a wonderful time at Pat and Al's last January, we returned again! The house is great--split floor plan is a plus....lots of room to spread out if you're looking for some quiet time. Plenty of room for company, too. The pool and lanai is a wonderful area to kick back and relax! The turtles and birds in the canal provide plenty of quiet distraction in an already peaceful neighborhood. Many restaurants in the Cape Coral and Ft. Myers area. Sanibel and Ft. Myers Beach are each only 1/2 hour away. Naples is about an hour, and the Everglades a little ways beyond that. Nice, helpful neighbors a plus! We've already made our reservations for next year!
