Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have lived in New York since being married 30 years ago and are inching our way to living in a MUCH warmer climate! We have used vrbo for family vacations for about 10 years and had wonderful experiences with them so we naturally wanted to list our home on vrbo for those times we can't be there. We both got certified to scuba dive in the last couple years, enjoy the outdoors and value our down time with family. Some of our most precious memories were those years we spent a week together at various homes throughout Florida with our four children. We hope that our home will also make some memories that you will cherish for a very long time!

Why the Owner Chose Pelican, Cape Coral, FL, USA:
We looked at 20 houses in 2 days when we visited Cape Coral in July and this house was number 20 and when we walked in it was a big WOW for us and the realtor! We felt this was a home that others would find welcoming, comfortable, and fun! We wanted a home on a salt water canal, with a pool, within an hour of an international airport, within a couple hours of diving and within half an hour of the beach. So this house hit the mark! We have set it up with families in mind, to be nice but comfortable and inviting. We hope that you will find it to be a great place to rest, relax and reconnect with those most precious to you!
