Property description

The Pelican Brief is located on a tropical barrier island bordered by Pine Island Sound and the Gulf of Mexico and is situated west of Ft Myers, Florida. Accessible by boat, the island is just minutes from the mainland. This beautifully decorated home boasts of brand new reconstruction following the aftermath of Hurricane Charley. The Pelican is LOCATED RIGHT ON THE WATER!!! Come watch the spectacular sunrises on the bay side or the ocean side atop a 50' widow's walk overlooking amazing Gulf of Mexico sunsets. On our secluded beaches, you can shell, fish, swim, watch the dolphins and manatees at play or the antics of the fabulous waterbirds. Imagine your own private swimming and fishing dock with abundant snook underneath! Whether you plan to spend a week, month or season we can accommodate your every need. Upper Captiva features three restaurants, golf cart rentals, boat rentals, bike rentals, deep sea fishing and much more. Non smoking but pets are permitted with additional deposit.
