About The Owner

We have run an American/European import company for many years and have had the chance to travel a great deal.

Yet we love spending time right here with the sunny skies, beautiful pool and near the ocean and the world class beaches.

We are animal lovers and do what we can to make their lives better.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Pelican

Cape Coral is easy to reach by air or expressway - it has every outdoor activity we enjoy and we dont have to leave the USA to feel that we are in a tropical location

Key West and Orlando/Disney are actually available as day trips

Fish off the dock or bring your boat and cruise to the Gulf Islands from the back yard dock.

What makes this house unique

My favorite day is a round of golf on the championship layout nearby, a cool dip in the pool and a cold drink watching the sun go down over the pool and the canal. How can you beat that?

Yvonne loves sunning at the beach, picking up a few treasured shells on Sanibel and finding other treasures at the local outlet malls.

Who wouldn't love that?

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Jay and Yvonne!

Life here in Cape Coral is just one hardship after another...

The weather is only 83 degrees, the pool is only 85 degrees,

the beds are so comfortable, the kitchen too perfect...

Oh! The trials and tribulations we have to suffer. Simply -

we are in love with your beautiful home!

Ernie went out this morning to his favorite driving range to

try out his new golf clubs and to return the book on tape that we

borrowed for the trip down. We finished it last night while

watching the sun go down on the lanai over the pool and canal.

Just a few things I thought you might like to know:

1 - Your internet is very speedy. I dont know if this is normal

for you, but compared to ours at home it is lightning fast.

2 - Pool heater and solar working in concert are marvelous

and pool is wonderful.

3 - Yvonne...the pots and pans are amazing. They heat up very

fast and we really have to keep an eye on them because they are

so conductive. We are going to buy the same for our home as

soon as we get back.

4 - The baby palms are doing very well and we are watering every

day as promised - they are swaying in the breeze.

Well I've taken up so much of your time but we just wanted you to

know that we are so very happy to be here in your home. The two

of us slept late past 7 AM this morning. This is unheard of for us at home. It must be the fresh air and this incredibly comfortable bed!!!

We so hope to meet you some day when we return to "The Palace"

Everything you could ask for in a vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying at the Pink Palace during our April break. Other than a trip to the grocery store for food Jay and Yvonne’s home had everything we needed to make our stay complete! Easy access to beaches. Many points of interest nearby. But mostly my family preferred to stay at their home and enjoy the pool and beautiful sunsets. Thank you for the hospitality and we will definitely be back to visit soon!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for spring break in April 2018, not a day under 82 degrees. It was great - spacious, clean and fully furnished. Beautiful view of the canal and the kids loved the pool.

I worked directly with Jay and he was quick to respond to emails and phone calls. We did have an issue with the air conditioning and he had someone out within an hour. I would rent this house again and recommend it to others.

Very homey and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for all of Feb. 2018 and found the home to almost check all of our boxes. The home is beautifully decorated and fully equipped with pretty much everything you would want. It offers a beautiful layout both indoors and out. The location is great, almost everything is within walking distance or a short drive. Jay and Yvonne have been a pleasure to talk to and work with and have responded in a very timely manner. Our only drawback was the trek to Ft. Myers beach wasn't much fun, taking from 35 minutes at best to over an hour and a half. There are closer beaches though.

Owner's Response: David and his family and friends stayed at our Pink Palace in February of 2018 and a great time was had by all. They are returning for 2019 ! It is true that if you head to world famous Ft Myers Beach at the wrong time and on the wrong day you can encounter a traffic jam. When the snowbirds AND the locals all want to hit the beach on Saturday or Sunday morning at the same time the last mile is a trial! If you go on a weekday or off rush hour it is a pleasant cruise to the beach. One can also visit Cape Coral Beach which is five minutes from the house, quiet and nice, and features a huge fishing pier, benches, picnic tables and grills. Also there is a lively pub for snacks, drinks, meals and stunning sunsets. We go there often.

Spacious, well decorated and equipped house

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in this comfortable home that has been decorated in Florida style so you really feel like you are on holiday!

A lot of rental properties that we have stayed on (booked via this site) are pretty functional and bland, not the pink palace. We particularly liked the fact that you can take in the morning sunshine in the comfortable lounge looking out at the palm trees and then kick back when the sun is setting to have dinner round the pool.

This house is spacious and has everything you would need for a great stay. The kitchen is well equipped as is the pool area with comfortable seating, loungers and floats. We were also impressed by the well stocked beach cupboard with chairs, umbrellas and coolers to make a day at the beach a great experience. You literally do not have to bring anything but your clothes to this house!

Jay and Yvonne are lovely people and it is apparent by their care in furnishing their lovely home and the conversations we had with them whilst staying at their house that they are really committed to giving their guests the best.

Stay here, you will not regret it!!

Owner's Response: Clare and her family visited from London - and they are the most recent of our many European guests. We have hosted groups from Germany, England, Holland, France and Sweden as well as many wonderful friends from Canada and all over the USA. It is our goal to make The Pink Palace a lovely and well appointed home that provides the relaxing and fun filled getaway that people on holiday are looking for. all you need to do is to arrive - we supply everything else in grand Florida style.

"Absolutely Fabulous"

  • 5 of 5

This house is just like the photos, gorgeous! We stayed here just before Christmas for a week. There is everything you could possibly need and more available. We were up and out early each day and enjoyed returning in the afternoons to relax in the pool (which the sun is on in the afternoons/Evenings) Perfect!! We ate (some) breakfasts and dinners outside in the lovely lanai. There are shops close by, Publix etc which is handy. The Pink Palace is pretty central to lots of great places to visit, Sanibel Island, Fort Meyers beach, Bonita Springs, Naples, these are the places we visited. Some recommends ~ Doc's Beach House Restaurant in Bonita Springs, sit outside with a fabulous view of the gorgeous beach, we had breakfast here. Boathouse Tiki bar and grill in Cape Coral again breakfast with a view!! Take a day trip to Key West, get the Key West express from Fort Meyers, great fun!

Jay and Jvonne the owners are so lovely and helpful. You will absolutely love staying here, don't look anywhere else, you've found it!!!!
