About The Owner

The owner is a busy professional living and working in Tampa FL.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Pelican

I spent a long time looking for this house. Cape Coral is a boater's and vacationer's paradise. It has easy access from Washington DC with direct flights to the nearby airport at RSW. The moment I opened the door to this home, the layout, the feel of it just hummed 'relaxation'. The beaches of Sanibel island and the excitement of the Gulf are at your door step. It even smells magnificent - a vanilla aroma permeates the house. Please take care of it, I will retire here one day.

What makes this house unique

RELAXATION. Pure and simple. As soon as I arrive I crack open a beer and sit and take in the sea breeze before jumping in the pool. It's blissful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect spot for our holiday in Florida. We had a really warm welcome from the property's manager, who showed us around and gave us the info we needed. The house has a lovely feel to it - v relaxed, which was just what we needed and loads of space. Slept better than I do at home! Everything went very smoothly and we had a truly carefree vacation. We can not recommend it too highly for people who have limited time and need to relax. Its the house you would build yourself if you could. Its right off a HGTV show.

Great Home for a Family Vacation

This property was an excellent choice for our family vacation. The three full baths were very convenient. House is nicely furnished and clean. We greatly enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic Southwest Florida Home

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic experience! We stayed the week at this well appointed and spacious home. It feels very cozy and welcoming and the pool and boat dock allow for recreation and fun for your entire party. Plenty of space for six adults. Very clean and wonderful location, located very close to good restaurants, shopping and the beach! We had a small issue which was immediately resolved beyond our expectations by the owner. Very impressed with the property, the owner customer server and the location. We are already planning on returning next December!

Great time in Cape Coral

  • 4 of 5

We were totally impressed with the interior of the home, very welcoming. While there we spent most of our time in the pool area which needs some TLC along with the landscaping. Enjoyed the area restaurants and close to Ft Myers, Captiva Island and others, great location. Appreciated the visit from the property manager, really showed he cared. We are definately talking about staying there again next year and renting a boat!! Thank you!!

Don't know how Lynda E. could have written a review for Feb. when My husband & I, plus another couple occupied the home for the month of Feb. 2015. We were very disappointed with the up keep of the home. The walkway to the home was covered in dirt, the lamp post was laying on the lawn. There was no upkeep on the lawn or landscaping, bushes were overgrown. Entering the house the dining room cushion chairs were so rip and stain that it would have been embarrassing to have anyone over for dinner. The bar stools were ripped and stained. Numerous light bulbs were burnt out, with out the right replacements. One of the bedspreads had a stain right in the middle of it. The living room furniture needed to be cleaned of stains and vacuumed to remove the stuff that covered it. One of the bathroom showers floor was covered in black mildew. One of the reasons for renting this home was for the electric pool. The pool was broken down till the last 3 days of our stay. The pool furniture was torn & covered in mildew stains. This property has not been well maintained. The location and the layout of the home was the only thing going for it. Sad to see a property like this be so poorly maintained

Owner's Response: Dear Potential Guests Its a sad reality of renting out a family home that some people use threats of bad reviews to try and get out of paying for their holidays. We think the hyperbole in this review speaks for itself. We compensated this party 10% of their booking fee because they had to wait 2 days for the pool heater repair man to return and troubleshoot the pool after the first repair did not fully fix the problem. Being reasonable and amenable towards them was taken by this party as an invitation to blackmail a bad review unless more money was returned to them. Some basic facts: -Linda E moved into our home the day after these tenants left and stayed for a week. Its next to impossible to write a fake review on VRBO as is implied in this review. You have to be a registered member and have paid to rent a property to review it. -When we discover an issue affecting someones stay we send a repairman immediately. -The house has been full since they left and no one else has had any issues. -The house is very well cleaned after every visit by Charlie and his wife - they are very well regarded by all other reviewers. We are very lucky that the vast majority of our guests are really lovely people - many of whom return year after year because they love everything about this lovely home. We look forward to welcoming you to our home and taking care of you like a visiting family member. The Owners and their family

fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation! House was beautiful! Furnishings showed some wear & tear but we were able to overlook that considering we enjoyed the pool and many attractions in the area! We were conveniently located near the very upscale Cape Harbour marina offering shops & dining. Highly recommend Fathoms restaurant & Rumrunners.

We rented a deck boat one day with some friends and enjoyed lunch at Barnacle Phil's on north Captiva island. Fun day!

Played golf twice...lots of courses in the area to choose from. Check out the sunset from the Boathouse restaurant at Cape Coral yacht club. And don't miss Fords Garage for a unique dining experience... Be sure to visit the rest've got to see it!

We would definitely go back! Time to start planning for next year!
