About Patrick

We are from NY and enjoy the warmth of Cape Coral during the cold seasons. It's always sunny and the perfect weather is wonderful!

Patrick purchased this house in 2009

Why Patrick chose Pelican

We bought this property because we love the location close to the River and near the Gulf of Mexico. We fell in love with the weather, the canals unique to this area and the peacefulness of Cape Coral. We love that it is a short distance from the beaches but far enough from the noise that beach communities sometimes bring.

What makes this house unique

Around the pool, there are pocket sliding doors & windows which open up fully to bring the outside in.

Great location by car or boat

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed and the owners were very helpful and communicated very clearly. The pool was perfect temperature and it was very short distance to Sanibel by boat through the canal. Would recommend this place highly!

Quiet Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We found the house to be well stocked and clean. The neighborhood was quiet and pleasant. Although it is not on the beach it was easy to get to Sanibel and Fort Myers. The pool was great.

A beautiful place to be!

  • 5 of 5

The minute we pulled in the driveway, we were greeted by a friendly neighbor and thoroughly enjoy our stay to the minute we left! What a great area this is with stores nearby and friendly people. The home was very clean and the layout is perfect for a family. We rented a boat and were able to store the boat right at the home on the canal. Boating down the canals was magical. The pool was clean and the kids swam non stop. Thanks for a great stay!

Fantastic location near intercoastal waterways of the Gulf! Clean, quiet and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I took my family of four and we had a nice time staying and relaxing in this home which was located very close to the intercoastal waterways of the Gulf. It only took us about 20 minutes by boat to reach Sanibel island area which will make a big difference if you choose to rent a boat. Some rentals in the area are tucked so far in that it could take you 1-2 hrs to just get out of the no wake channel system. We rarely needed to drive our vehicle except to the bait store and the local grocer to get items which was only a five minute drive away. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation with boat access this is the place to be. The house was very clean and the beds were so comfortable that I am currently looking to purchase the exact mattress that we used. The pool and patio were was very clean and made our experience top notch. The owner was very accessible, easy to talk to and promptly returned our deposit. My only recommendation to the owner would be to invest in getting some wood pilons installed for mooring a boat. It is possible to moor a boat to the existing structure (cement wall with cleats) but the boat rental captain was opposed to this because of the high risk of fiberglass damage that might occur. I am not an experienced boater so perhaps someone who is would feel more comfortable with the existing structure. Two bumper guards are located in the garage and available for use as needed. The dock on the channel is cement and very easy to fish from comfortably. I would certainly recommend this rental if you are an experienced boater or if you choose not to rent a boat. I am not an experienced boater and I did not realize that having pilons were necessary for me. All fives for this vacation home for an overall great experience! Thanks Patrick.

We rented this property for 6 weeks and could not have asked for a better place to stay. From day one we hit the weather jackpot. It started in the 70's and ended in the upper 80's in mid-April. We also hit the property jackpot. After leaving 10ft of snow in my backyard in Atlantic Canada, this home was just what the advertisement gods gave us - sunshine, heat and a tan. The one next door neighbour was helpful whenever we asked for information. They even invited us to their Easter fun fest.

We were not kayakers, but if we wanted them they were available for a bit extra $$ - maybe I'll take up Kayaking, it certainly would have been interesting navigating the canals. This property is close to the Beach in Cape Coral. My grandchildren came for a visit and enjoyed the pool - this is where they finally let go of the pool edge and swam for the first time. Everything is close by: marvellous sunsets, Publix, Walgreen, CVS, excellent restaurants, Baseball, etc. etc.... We truly enjoyed ourselves and will certainly be back at some future time - need to complete two more bucket list items. I truly recommend this property for your vacation pleasures. One item I would add, especially for wine drinkers, wine glasses would certainly be wonderful to have, but that's us. Does not take anything away, everything is THERE!!! One last thing, to paraphrase one of Elvis's song - "There will be peace in the valley", I can truly say that, "There is Peace on the canals of Cape Coral". It's really quiet and restful. If you're from the BIG city and want to rest and relax, this would certainly be the place.
