Southern Hills condo description
Welcome to paradise at our Pelican Sound coach home. Of course, there are many choices in paradise. If you prefer to relax, lounging on the lanai will provide you with peace and serenity as you are surrounded by the natural environment. White egrets patiently wait as they carefully watch for their prey. A cormorant dives into the lake and successfully retrieves his mid-morning snack. After gobbling this delicious treat, he spreads his huge wings to dry in the sparkling sunshine before embarking on another fishing trip. You will revel in the lush expanses of greenery, wildlife preserves and freshwater lakes throughout the community.
Suddenly, you hear golfers directly across the lake on the sixth green hollering enthusiastically while sinking a putt. You decide that's enough relaxation for today. Maybe playing a challenging section of the 27-hole championship golf course could be an exciting adventure. The golf course is Audubon sanctioned for its excellence for reverence for the environment and encouraging abundance of wildlife into the surrounding habitat.
For now, you decide to explore your new community by jumping on your bike and pedaling around the perimeter of the golf course towards the 18,000 square foot clubhouse. Inside, there is an elegant formal dining room, friendly bar, and an outside dining area that overlooks that golf course. On the way out, you gather some information about various social events and activities.
As you pedal towards the River Club, you pass by the tennis courts. Then, you see the huge 2,400 square foot pool, which looks inviting on this warm, cloudless day. By the pool, is the fitness center. You notice that it appears to be better equipped than most private fitness centers. At the River Club restaurant, your new neighbors are enjoying their favorite sports program while having a refreshing drink and a delicious lunch. Outside of the River Club, you walk past some kayaks and canoes that are are perfect mode of transportation to casually enjoy the pristine waters of the Estero River and Estero Bay.
On the river, the boat shuttle is waiting for its passengers to take them to Lovers Key in forty-five minutes to fish, enjoy the beach, and swim. In the bay, the dolphins play alongside the bow of the boat, but they see a school of fish to feed upon.
Across the parking lot, there is a nature trail that winds lazily along the river. There are so many choices in this community and many more outside as well.
When you thought you had run out of activities, you look in your blue binder, which is full of wonderful ideas. Then, you discover that the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox are in spring training during the prime month of March. The days are filled endlessly with new and exciting activities.
Our home is 1551 square feet and detailed pictures of most of the areas are included. The main areas are open and overlook a large lake in addition to the sixth hole on the golf course.
The guestroom has its own wing and is separated by a pocket door. The guestroom and study overlook a private courtyard, that has lush vegetation. On the lanai, you will be able to watch breathtaking sunsets as the swaying palm trees meet the gentle ocean breeze. Access to the lanai can be reached through the master suite that has new Bamboo flooring, living room, and dining room. The master suite has plenty of closet space. In the bathroom, there is a large vanity with double sinks. The step-in shower is extremely large. The decor will remind you of a comfortable and casual beach house.
When you rent our home, our bicycles are at your disposal. The woman's bicycle is all-terrain with a gel seat and the man's bicycle is for road use only. We are more than willing to share our fishing equipment with you and there may even be some bait in the freezer. For the beach enthusiast, there are beach chairs, umbrellas, a fold-up cabana, and towels for your use.
Estero is a quiet community with access to the river, bay, and the gulf within our community. The golf course was featured in the 2006 issue 3 of Golfer's Guide magazine. According to this magazine, 'Pelican Sound Golf and River Club is Southwest Florida's Championship Secret.' Also, the magazine described the course as, 'First and foremost the golf course is spectacular.' The scenic Estero river borders the river course as well as the one of the many nature preserves.
Another great feature of Pelican Sound is the reciprocal list, which allows you to play other challenging, distinctive courses during May 1st to November 31st. These courses have designers such as Greg Norman, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer and Pete Dye to mention a few. One of the many offerings on this list is 'Wildcat Run', which was designed by Arnold Palmer. Typically, the courses on this list could run up to $250.00 to play, but during this season they run from $30.00 to $40.00.
Initially, we looked at Pelican Sound when it was in the midst of construction six years ago. At that time, we were just looking. Three years ago, we started looking for a vacation home in earnest. We looked at fifteen properties, yet we gravitated toward Pelican Sound and made the perfect choice.
Before purchasing our home, we talked to dozens of people and we have not been disappointed by our decision in the least. The community is very active and friendly. In the short amount of time that we have owned this beautiful piece of paradise, we have made long-lasting memories. Our sincere hope, is that you will make long-lasting memories of your own. If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us. I have more pictures of all rooms, the lanai and courtyard, which I can send to you. Also, you can get to see the neighborhood by going to the Pelican Sound web page.
