About Catherine Dwyer

I am a retired Teacher married to a Graduate Civil Engineer. He was the Managing Director of an International Steel Company. We are recently retired, and spends two 6 week vacations a year in our house. We live in The North West of England.

Catherine Dwyer purchased this villa in 2004

Why Catherine Dwyer chose Pelican

The property is a spacious detached house. It is well designed. Built by National Builder David Weekly. We bought this property as a retirement home and for our friends and family to vacation with us.

We chose SW Cape Coral as it is a safe neighborhood. The house is only 5 minutes walk from Camelot Isles, and an early morning 20 minutes walk to Cape Harbour provides lots of opportunities to spot Burrowing Owls, and to admire the beautifully kept gardens of the SW Cape Residents.

Cape Coral is a good location and offers easy access to a range of different experiences. A Half Day trip to The Everglades and Chokoloskee, provide a unique

experience. During longer stays it is easy to take The Key West Express from Fort Myers and spend a weekend in Key West.

What makes this villa unique

Quiet Select Residential Area, with easy access to all of life's essentials. South Facing Waterfront Plot. One can watch the sun rise in the morning and set in the evening. The house is in a slightly elevated position, which makes the best use of the daylight hours. This allows for the simple pleasure of sitting sipping sundowners in the spa, while the sun sets.The house offers a large Owners Retreat where you can wake up and watch the sun rise over the canal..

Truly a Tropical Haven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tropical Haven for 2 weeks at the beginning of November and were blessed with beautiful weather. What an amazing villa the photos don't do it justice thank you Catherine for sharing your home. There was just me and my husband so we only used the back of the house but we loved the openness of the kitchen (very well stocked for all your cooking needs)and living area. It is furnished to a high standard and felt very homely. We loved the bathroom and walk through shower and the closet wow it was massive. The oversized pool and spa deck was perfect for sitting out in the covered lanai or the extended deck in the sun all overlooking the canal and the jumping fish, we even saw some rays down by the boat dock along with spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The villa was just perfect for our needs and we ended up spending a lot more time than we intended just relaxing there. The neighbours we saw were very friendly and when the time came we were sad to leave it felt so much like home. There are lots of bars and restaurants locally we especially liked to walk to the Overtime sports bar and grill and drive to the Boathouse which kind of became our local lovely friendly staff,great food and awesome views. Sannibel and Captiva Island stole our hearts the beaches and shelling ,pods of dolphins,gopher tortoise such a special place. We have stayed in many villas over the years but this has to be our favourite.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our Spring Break vacation. Very comfortable bedding and furniture and a fully stocked kitchen. We enjoyed lazy days by the pool with a nice breeze off from the canal. Didn't have much luck catching fish off from the dock, but the jumping fish were really entertaining. Stores, restaurants, and beaches were not far away. Best of all, Catherine was wonderful to work with and her management group was super friendly. Thanks for a great vacation!!

Cape coral paradise

  • 5 of 5

Home is just as pictured. Had a wonderful vacation at this home. I could have spent entire vacation out by pool. This home is close to restaurants and beaches. I went on many walks in the mornings when I was their and all the neighbors were super friendly and would stop and say hello. This home is in a very nice neighborhood.

Great for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. The kids loved the pool and the house is large enough for everyone to not be on top of each other. We also had a great time relaxing and fishing at the dock out back. We found it to be conveniently located and close to most of the things we wanted to do. Very convenient access to grocery store and restaurants. We would consider this property again for sure. The owner is very nice and on top of things. Her management company not so much but everything worked out.
