The perfect & hard to find combination of luxury and sun & fun for the entire family or a romantic get-away. Really the perfect house for the entire family! Large heated pool and Jacuzzi, Indoor Ping Pong / Pool Billiard Table, Boat (optional), Fishing at the Boat Dock, Beaches, Manatees & Dolphins for the Kids. Boating, Fishing, BBQ, Bars, Large TVs and Great Outdoor adventures for guys. And Most Important: Luxury, Pool & Spa, Restaurants, Beaches and Outlet Shopping for the Ladies. A perfect home for everybody! The pool is located on the South-East corner of the house, which means the pool has direct sunshine from sun-rise till early evening!
As you see on the photos, the entire outside pool area is covered / protected with mosquito net so that you can enjoy your dinner, BBQ, sunbathing, relaxing and pool fun free of insects or leaves in the pool, while still enjoying the fresh air and occasional breeze from the sea.
One of my favorites at the house: a relaxing hot bath in the outdoor Jacuzzi during a tropical thunderstorm or under the bright stars at night. The Jacuzzi's water temperature can be set exactly to the desired level, up to around 102F / 39C, which takes only around 10-12 minutes.
A spacious, comfortable & family friendly Godfrey Hurricane Sundeck 217 boat with bathroom, freshwater tank & GPS is available for only 599 USD per week or 1699 USD per month! The boat is on the electric boat-lift directly in front of the house, has a 150hp Yamaha outboard motor & is up to 42mph fast! Take your family for a boat ride & discover the sunny side of Florida: beaches, waterfront restaurants, wild dolphins, manatees, mangrove birds and outstanding trout, Spanish mackerel & tarpon fishing! The maximum capacity of the boat is 10 persons, but I would say with more than 7 persons it gets a bit crowded for longer rides.
Perfect pool location - Lots of sunshine: The pool with beautiful Pebble-Tec finish is located on the South-East corner of the house, which means the pool has direct sunshine from sun rise till early evening! The pool has been completely renovated in April 2016, including automated pool pump controls/valves to switch from pool mode to spa (jacuzzi) mode.
The house is really spacious and beautiful and great also for an extended stay with up to 6-8 people. Adults and kids will love the large house, pool, jacuzzi and the fast and spacious 150hp boat.
Some recent improvements include:
- 60' LCD TVs with digital Comcast cable in living room & master bedroom
- LCD TV with digital Comcast cable in queen bedroom (small DVD-only TV in twin bedroom)
- New brushed-aluminum-front dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave and fridge were installed in spring 2013.
- Pool and Jacuzzi completely renovated in April 2016
- Also in 2016: replaced 150hp Yamaha boat motor and poolside BBQ
- Done in 2017: brand new house roof and new Raymarine Dragonfly boat GPS unit installed.
As described above, the house has three bedrooms (1 king bed, 1 queen bed, 2 twin beds) . But we can additionally offer a queen sized, about 2.5ft high comfortable airbed in the office; it's almost as good as a real bed. I already slept 2 full weeks on this airbed and I had no problems - and I am 6' 3" and 195 lbs.

My name is Philip, I am 40 years old and I work full-time as a project manager for a major Swiss bank in Zurich, Switzerland. I am an avid fisherman and diver and l love fishing, boating, diving and being on the water or in the water (sea, pool, hot tub). My local property managers Mary Jane and Kevin live 5min from the rental home and will take perfect care of you.
Philip purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Philip chose Pelican
When I bought the house in 2009, it was the middle of the housing-market-crisis and really a lot of houses were on the market. I looked at over 10 houses in the same category. I chose this one because it is very beautiful & spacious, with a big pool with lots of sun morning till evening and because its location is quite close to the exit of the canal system, which is important for me as an avid fisherman who is on the water every day. And I love the two coconut palms next to the entrance and the younger one (which I have planted some years ago) near the boat dock / canal - see how it grew on the photo. Also the neighborhood is beautiful, quiet, friendly, very safe and perfectly maintained. A word of advice for your safety as a renter: There have recently been some craigslist rental scams in Cape Coral/Fort Myers. For your safety you can: - rent via verified and safe portals like Homeaway or VRBO - focus on owners that are member longer than a year and have good ratings - verify ownership: check the lee county tax collector's page (property tax record) - pay only to accounts registered in the name of the verified owner - ask the owner for a proof of ID (e.g. passport, ID, etc.) - ask for a recent utility bill (water or electricity)
What makes this Villa unique
I love Cape Coral and this house because for me it is the perfect combination of sun, fun and adventure on the water (fishing, boating, beaches) and a luxurious home with all comfort (heated pool & jacuzzi, big LCD TVs, Internet, spacious rooms, 3 full bathrooms, comfortable beds, nice & big kitchen, central AC, BBQ, ping pong / pool billiard table, double garage, nearby shopping, outlets and restaurants, etc.). The optional fast and spacious 21' 150HP Hurricane Sundeck boat also adds a lot to a unique vacation experience. And for all fishermen: the boat is well equipped for fishing with fish-finder, all my spots marked in GPS unit, live-well, many rod-holders for safe storage and trolling, freshwater shower and a fish-cleaning table with running water right by the boat dock. And I cannot stress it enough: what matters a lot for boaters in Cape Coral is the distance of the house to the exit onto the bay - and my house is really located among the top 10% of houses, please check it on the map.

Awesome house and location!!
My wife and I came here for our honeymoon to explore the waterways and beaches. We lucked out with beautiful weather, sunny and 85. The house was clean and pool and hot tub were great. We enjoyed local restaurants but our favorite two were Pinchers and Crave(in ft Myers). Had some issues with the washing machine but the property manager showed us how to use it. The boat was awesome, a little older than expected but ran beautifully, and really made the trip. Overall it was a great trip and we hope to be back soon!! Thanks Phillip!!
Had a wonderful time!
Despite Hurricane Irma's attempt to foil our vacation, we had a great time. Our thanks to Philip (owner), Mary Jane (house manager) and Kevin (boat manager) for their outstanding communication and assistance. The house is beautiful, the boat is fun, and we can't wait to go back and catch more fish! Special thanks to Philip for the fishing tips and information. It was a great help!
Wonderful house and great pool!
This was a wonderful house for our family. Not only was the house clean and comfortable it also had a nice layout. We stayed there for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Our kids spent lots of time in the pool swimming for hours. With the covered lanai, we were able to enjoy grilling and eating outside in the shade. The property manger was very accommodating as we were not able to get there until late the first night. She made the process very easy to get checked in and out of the house.
This house made for a wonderful stay!
A great place to spend vacation!
We had an amazing time! The location is incredible! We saw a lot of dolphins and manatees. We had a fabulous time on the boat! The house owner and managers were great to deal with! This is definitely a trip we will take every opportunity we have!
Thank you very much for your positive feedback, great communication and the awesome videos of the dolphins in the canal and the manatee at our house's boat dock! I have published the latter here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knEF8wf7quk

Amazing place! Incredible space!
Owner, property manager, boat manager were as friendly and accommodating as could be. Boat was a tremendous addition, and well worth the minimal additional cost. House and pool were perfect; comfortable, and easy going space. Never wanted for anything. Local restaurants were amazing! I would rent here again in a heartbeat!
