About the property

Discover Cape Coral in a relaxing and spacious setting! This beautifully-manicured and well-equipped home is located on a saltwater canal with access to the gulf. Enjoy sitting on the U-shaped dock, watching the manatees and their babies play in the canal.

This peaceful and quiet location is perfect for couples who want to get away or families looking to experience the real Cape Coral. We even have a portable, fold-up crib, high chair, and stroller for families with young children.

Thinking of entertaining? The extra-large lanai has two sitting and dining areas to accommodate extra company. Whether you want to start the day with a swim or just sit back and relax, we’ve got you covered with our heated pool that has a depth of 8ft in the deep end and a luxurious, private hot tub.

During your stay, enjoy fishing off the dock. You can also bring your own boat or rent one locally: the boat lift handles up to 10,000lbs. This is a wonderful second family home for us, and we know you’ll enjoy staying here as much as we have!

Ft. Myers beach is less than a half hour away, and there are plenty of attractions within minutes of our location, including many great restaurants. Cape Coral offers something for everyone in your group, from beaches, biking, and kayaking to miniature golf, shopping, and a water park. You can also get in a round of golf or check out baseball spring training. There is a grocery store within a ½ mile, and churches are just a short distance away.

Don’t just take our word for how beautiful this home is: view more photos and start planning your stay!

About Charles McWethy

This is our second home. (vacation home) We live in Minnesota most of the time, but love to visit when we can. We have 4 children. Marty V. is our caretaker and will gladly meet you upon check in. He can attend to any needs you may have, and can offer directions to shopping and restaurants. My brother lives across the street and offers his home for seasonal rental too. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!

Why Charles McWethy chose Pelican

Quiet neighborhood along saltwater canal. Beautifully manicured lawn, great neighbors. Manatees and stingrays have been recently spotted in the canal in front of our dock! Shopping, boat rental, fishing, parks, water park, golfing, spring training for Minnesota Twins, and Red Sox close by.

If you have a larger family and want to stay close by (across street), my brother has his home for rent too.

What makes this house unique

Vaulted ceilings, extra large lanai for company, heated pool and hot tub! Just relaxing.

Perfect for Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home! Extremely private around the lovely lanai and pool area, which provides lots of space ,sun and shade. Very well equipped kitchen, linens, towels and larger towels for around the pool.

Excellent location to access restaurants, and a beach in Cape Coral.

Dealing with the owner, Chuck is easy and his property manager Marty is a pleasure and very reliable.

WE hope to return next year as it was perfect for our needs during the cold norther winter!

Fantastic Vacation House and location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything the photo's and comments said it was and more. We enjoyed our time spent here, the pool was kept warm and we enjoyed swimming and using the hot tub. Everything we needed was there. Chuck was great to rent from! It was nice to be welcomed by Marty who went over everything and answered any questions and was available if needed. We certainly would love to come back again!

A lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this home. It has a nice pool and hot tub and is well laid out with a nice backyard. It took us a while to get to know where everything is located in Cape Coral, as it is a large town and very spread out. This house is located more in the central part of Cape Coral, so it only takes 10-20 minutes to get most anywhere you need to go to within the town. The local property manager was very responsive to anything that we needed and ensure that the property was well maintained.

Just the Job!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice now - the first place that we've been back to, which says a lot and have spent the best part of six weeks here in total.

You really get a feel for the property and the people involved in it in that time. Everything in this property is as it should be.

Chuck is an honourable owner, Marty who looks after the property and is your point of contact in Cape Coral, is a great guy and the sort of person that we would want to have look after a property for us.

The location is quiet and safe and the adjacent saltwater canal adds a an extra dimension to your enjoyment - we've seen Manatees there during both our stays now. We don't fish, but it's fun to watch the fishes from the dock - catfish and various other types, including fish that leap out of the water from time to time.

The pool is lovely.

Cape Coral is a refreshing alternative to Orlando for those people who don't need theme parks and being the best part of 200 miles further south of Orlando, it's appreciably warmer during the winter season.

Having an integral garage with a power door is great for keeping the car safe and cool and makes transferring your luggage a breeze.

You can book this property with confidence - we do!

Arctic Vortex Escape

  • 4 of 5

Great lanai, heated pool and hot tub. Enclosed lanai is ideal for winter vacations.

Central location in quiet neighborhood, and access to north and south Cape's restaurants and deli's.

Escape from subzero snow and cold, for sun and warm temperatures was the high light of the visit.

Caretaker was a great help in checking in and out.

Owner's Response: Thank you. That is exactly how we feel too. We wish we could get away from this winter more often than we do. Hope you can stay again sometime. Chuck & Ellen
