About Cheryl (owner/manager)

It's a quiet, safe neighborhood with calming bike paths along the streets and it's so close to everything FUN in Southwest Florida, a PERFECT location...!!!

Why Cheryl (owner/manager) chose Pelican

Why stay in a Hotel when you can stay in your home away from home. This area has been my favorite for many many years and once I made it my home I wanted to share it 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 décor, the huge lanai boasts a large heated pool with plenty of room for the entire family to enjoy endless fun in the sun. 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 we love to visit. It's proximity to Sanibel Island 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 you can spend a lifetime here...!!!!! Which is why I now live here and have this property to share with you...!!!!

What makes this house unique

The Summertime Retreat is located in the desirable Southwest area of Cape Coral. The home is decorated in a cozy Florida style palm tree and beach décor to create a super relaxing feeling, it's location is close to a myriad of activities to include beaches, shopping, boating, fishing, history, art, theater, golf, great restaurants and most importantly the Best Shelling beaches and Best Sunsets in the World...!!!!!.

Beautiful home & pool; great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

The owner is wonderful! She caters to her guests needs from the moment you walk into the home. She greets her guest with a bottle of wine which I think is a great touch. The house is very nicely decorated, has all of the amenities one could ever want/need including an abundance of beach items. The pool and deck area are beautiful and well taken care of. The lawn and landscaping is also nicely done. This is the 2nd time my husband and I have stayed here and will definitely come back! We highly recommend this rental!!

Amazing property!!

  • 4 of 5

The place is really nice! Upgraded and clean. Cheryl is super nice, quick to respond and very friendly. It was a pleasure to meet her. There are a few basics in the kitchen such as salt/pepper, pots and pans. The bathrooms are well equipped with soap/shampoo. The highlight of the house is the back yard with an AMAZING pool, patio, and bbq area. Its completely private and there is plenty of sitting area. The pool is quite large and we spent every day lounging outside. There is a Walmart and Publix not too far away and Cape Coral has a decent amount of shopping. Its about 35-40 min from RSW airport which is not too bad. The beaches are a little far, Fort Myers beach is the closest public beach and is at least 40 min away not accounting for traffic. There are no beaches in Cape Coral (only a river beach). There is a $2 toll to enter Cape Coral although there is a free bridge also up north.

All in all we loved the property and dealing with Cheryl but found it long to get to the beach especially with the traffic (although we probably wouldn't have minded if we didn't have a toddler with us :))

Fantastic property and owner!

  • 5 of 5

To say that our stay at the Summertime Retreat Two was like home away from home would be grossly understated! We had the best time that I can recall on ANY previous vacations!

SIX out of five stars! We WILL be back!

Car: recommended

This property is located in the beautiful Southwest section of Cape Coral very close to Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Pine Island and Matlacha. These locations boast some of the best beaches, shelling and nightlife on the Gulf coast. Sanibel Island ranks #10 in the world for a top shelling destination and is a must see on your places to visit. Captiva Island Mucky Duck Restaurant is one of the best Sunset spots on the coast. Downtown Ft. Myers shops, Art Walk and Music Walk are among the fun things to do during your stay. The Edison and Ford winter Estates on the beautiful McGregor Blvd are nearby. The Broadway Palm premier dinner theatre in Ft. Myers is another great entertainment spot. The Naples Zoo is nearby. The Key West Express is also close by to hop on down to the keys for a weekend visit. This area is a Beach Lovers Delight, a Boaters Delight as well as a fisherman's delight....!!!! IT'S ALL HERE SO COME ENJOY YOUR STAY.
