Why Susan Burns chose Pelican

This property is close to everything in Southwest Florida. Just a short drive from the airport and your vacation has begun! Only 20-30 minutes to the beautiful beaches of Ft. Myers, Sanibel Island and Captiva, yet far enough away for privacy and relaxation. I love that the sliders all open up to the bug-free lanai for dining and hanging out with a cocktail after a long day.

A good family getaway spot

  • 4 of 5

This location was good for a comfortable, relaxing location that was conveniently located near some activities. The owner is very easy to work with and accommodating. The pool area is as lovely as it looks in pics on line but is a pain to manage water temperature. Owner did try to help us with this as well. Quiet neighborhood.

Best vacation ever!! The property was lovely and well kept. The house was well furnished, clean and cozy. We all enjoyed our stay. We spent most of our time outside in the Lanai, swimming pool and hot tub. The most relaxing and enjoyable vacation we have had in a long time and we were sad to leave.

All the comfort of home for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Susan's house. The house and location was ideal place for us. The pool, spa and lanai was the favorite place for our family everyday! Location was close to shopping, dining , sightseeing and the beaches. When a problem came up Susan took care of it right away. The house was well cared for and had all the conveniences of home. Can't wait for another summer vacation at the Escape to Cape Coral home !

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the house. It had everything we needed for our comfort and relaxation. We especially enjoyed our time in the pool and on the patio area. It was my first time to Florida and staying here and seeing all that is offered in the area, thanks to suggestions from the owner, we will be back. Thanks again for sharing your home.

Loved the pool and location.

  • 5 of 5

The home is on a very quiet street. Just a few minutes drive to everything. We spent most of our time in the pool and hot tub. Captain Jack Boat Tours are excellent. The house was the perfect size for our family of 5. My kids are 8-11 and lives the pool. It was only 5 feet or so at the deepest point which was great. You can see the pool and watch the kids from just about everywhere in the house. Had everything we needed for cooking dinners and lunches. I used some of our leftover shrimp from dinner to fish off the dock once. Susan the owner check in on us to make sure everything was going well. Great communication with her throughout the entire process. Our only complaint (yep, gotta have something to complain about right? Lol.) The mattress in the master bedroom was very firm. So if you like a firm mattress you will be set. If you like a little softer mattress you will have to get in the hot tub every morning like I did. Ha. Really is a great place to stay with great location and price. Thanks.
