About The Owner

We LOVE SW Florida so purchased a home to spend extensive time here. We chose a large home and furnished it with lots of bedding for friends & family to come and visit with us. Each bedroom is very large. Our Seashells bedroom with 1 queen + 1 Full beds will accommodate a family or several kids. Come and enjoy our home. Our local management company will assist you during your stay.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Pelican

A SHORT BOAT RIDE to local restaurants at Tarpon Point and Cape Harbour, Sanibel beaches, Ft. Myers beach and the gulf of Mexico. There's great fishing nearby. We also like boating in the Pine Island Sound or to Cayo Costa State Park where you can dock and take the free tram over to the beach. Or dock at Cabbage Key and dine at the famous Jimmy Buffet restaurant.

What makes this house unique

Close proximity to open water. Most homes in Cape Coral require long commutes at idle speed to get anywhere. We are boaters and wanted quick access to 'full throttle'. At only 10 houses from the river, you can be out in the Gulf of Mexico in minutes. If you are an avid fisherman, quick access allows for morning AND evening trips if you so desire. Sailboat access with no bridges.

Beautiful Cape Coral Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There was a family group of us of 10 people who stayed at this extra beautiful Cape Coral Home they call Boaters Dream. We stayed for the 2017 Thanksgiving weekend and this home was perfect in every way. The most important and most convenient aspect of this vacation was Janice's very prompt and clear communication both before and after the trip. She will ease your mind and make the plans you have very easy to achieve. The home itself was just amazing and everyone in our group was so pleased with the accommodations. It was very large and located so close to the open water and local beaches. For a boater it is truly a DREAM as we did opt for renting the available boat as well and we took it out daily. If you think the views from the shore is spectacular, wait until you see Cape Coral from the sea. Nobody felt cramped in this home. There is a screened in heated pool and boy did we take advantage of that. Janice thought of everything anyone would need to make their vacation comfortable and convenient. Maps of the area, brochures for excursion options, a restaurant guide, sea navigation maps, and so many extra things like pool toys, towels, all the appliances and tools you would ever need while you are there. So put Boaters Dream on your list as a fantastic option if you plan to rent a home in the Ft. Meyers/Cape Coral area we are glad we did and we wont hesitate to stay there again the next time we plan a trip in that area.

Perfect location close to beaches and boating!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We had 6 adults and 6 kids for the week. Janice was very easy to work with. The house had everything we needed; plenty of dishes and beach towels, toys and umbrellas. Close to a grocery store and beaches. The house has a boat dock and we rented a boat which we thoroughly. The kids loved the swimming pool, We would rent this again!

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

My family of three and our friends' family of four rented this home in March of 2017. It was absolutely perfect! It was a lot more room than we needed, but that is NOT a complaint! Janice answered all of our questions 6 months prior to our stay as well as any questions that we had that came up during our stay. She was always VERY easy to get a hold of. The pool was PERFECT for our three children, ages 8, 10 and 11. There were lots beach toys and towels in the house that we took to the beaches each well as chairs and umbrellas. That was SUCH a bonus! We rented the boat from Captain John and Captain Bob. They were VERY helpful and answered all of our questions. The boat was GREAT!!!! We loved our stay in Cape Coral in this home!!!!

Wonderful New Years Week

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable New Year day and week at Mariners Landing. The home is very spacious and well-appointed with most anything you would need. It has a beautiful pool and enclosed patio area to enjoy the outdoors. A brand new grill is waiting for some great outdoor cooking. The home is located at the end of a nice canal and provides some fishing opportunities without leaving the house. We also rented an available 23 foot Hurricane boat and went out on the river and ultimately the Gulf of Mexico. The house is very near the entrance of the river making it a few minute journey.

The owner thinks of everything, provided very helpful information about the home and nearby area. She is very proactive with communications and extremely responsive to any questions.

We only have five people in the home, but the home could easily accommodate 3 times as many and has bedding, linens and seating for all.

Wonderful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home!! My family enjoyed everything about this house. There were eight adults in our party and we never felt like we were on top of each other. Plenty of space to do things together or wander off on your own. Having the third bathroom off the pool area was a plus!!! The pool was amazing: nice and big. The view: sliders that open to the pool with an amazing view of the canal. I rented the boat for four of the days that we stayed here in December. Captain Bob, John and Mark were wonderful. The orientation with Captain Bob was excellent. He went over everything about the Cape Coral area, including the charts, controlling the boat ramp, and took us out on a little trip to show us around. The owner, Janice, was a pleasure to work with. Everything went so smoothly....I'm already looking to book this house again for the same time.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this home in Cape Coral and everyone enjoyed themselves. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable I slept wonderfully. The pool was great. Everyone had a ball in it. Being able to adjust the temp of the pool made it extra special. Some places won't let you do that. We also rented the boat to go out to some of the islands.

I don't think there is anything missing from the kitchen you could possibly want. So many tools and pots and pans. Even spices in the cabinet. Stores are nice and close if you need groceries. Restaurants close by also.

House is very spacious so everyone has plenty of room. Loved the master bath with a sink in the bathroom and one outside the bathroom so two people can get ready at one time. I would definitely rent this house again if I went back to Cape Coral.
