About John Meyer

Carole and John would like to welcome you to their home in the beautiful Pelican neighborhood of Cape Coral. John has many fond memories of growing up by the ocean, and loves saltwater fishing. Now relocated to the upper Midwest, the winters can be long and hard. Living near the Great Lakes is just not the same as the sights, smells and sounds of the sea. We have vacationed throughout Florida with our family through the years, but Florida's west coast has a special attraction. We bought this home hoping to instill the same fond memories of life near the ocean in our children.

John Meyer purchased this villa in 2010

Why John Meyer chose Pelican

The west coast of Florida has lots to offer. Cape Coral has the perfect balance of a modern city with new housing, Gulf access, and affordable living. The SW Cape is known for its safe and peaceful neighborhoods, with easy Gulf access and many amenities nearby. Our particular location is the best. Tucked away, our 4 block neighborhood is surrounded on all sides by saltwater canals just like a moat. This adds to the feeling of safety and security as well as limited to local traffic only. Yet we are located less than 1 mile from downtown Cape Coral with all its shops and restaurants. It just couldn't be any more convenient!

What makes this villa unique

You will enjoy picking fresh oranges and grapefruits for breakfast from the tree in our backyard. Or perhaps you will enjoy fishing or crabbing from the dock toward evening. Because the neighborhood is surrounded by canals on all sides with only one road in and out, there is a feeling of safety and security when the children go for a walk or ride their bikes in the neighborhood. Are you nature lovers like us? If so, look closely and you just might see a passing manatee, dolphin or turtle in the canal. There are also burrowing owls not far away and ibis, herons and egrets frequent the property. Enjoy the lush tropical foliage that thrives in this paradise oasis.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This had to be one of the nicest vacations we have ever taken. The house was absolutely gorgeous and very homey. It was much bigger than expected. There are sliding glass doors in several of the rooms, including the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a high bed, comfortable mattress, and huge bathroom with one of the biggest showers I have ever seen!. The home is situated on a canal and the kids had a blast catching jellyfish in the net. The pool was great to be able to cool off after a long day of tanning. It was just like it was described and more. My family loved it, and we would definitely recommend it to our friends!

A great house to rent.

  • 4 of 5

We were there in early July. The house was everything that we expected and more. The furniture and decor were perfect, the kitchen well stocked and the location on the canal was great. John was very helpful with any questions that we had. The only thing to complain about was the very little kleenex and toilet paper remaining in the bathrooms. It would have been nice to have a few days supply. Overall, a great place to stay. We would definitely recommend it.

Pleasant Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Nice property, great location. The layout was a plus. The boat lift was a big plus. Solar heat for the pool worked well, once we figured out how to valve it in. The owner, John, was quick to respond, and friendly to deal with. We recommend this property, and would rent again.

Owner's Response: And we look forward to your future return. As I explained, the pool temperature is thermostatically controlled automatically so there is no need to turn any valves. Glad you had a wonderful time and look forward to returning some other time.
