About Luann Harden

Our Cape retreat is our home away from home. It is our third property owned in Florida. Our families grew up in southwest Michigan and we are 3rd generation immigrants. Our family includes a grown daughter and son. We have been blessed by both being successful business owners. Now, we both are in upper administration and love to spend long weekends to regenerate in our tropical home.

Luann Harden purchased this house in 2005

Why Luann Harden chose Pelican

You will love our home if you are water people like us. We love to sit on the deck listening to the water and watching the beautiful Florida sunsets. You will hear the fish jumping and the quiet serenity of our wonderful neighborhood. It makes you feel like you are in your own little paradise.

What makes this house unique

This quiet retreat gives you the private setting with all of the shopping and beaches just a short drive away. Ft. Myers Beach, Sannibel Island, Captiva are all just 30 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really liked your house and felt at home. This trip was a discovery one for us as we are looking for a permanent place to live when my husband retires in the very near future. Cape Coral is definitely on the list. Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful house. Your new pool heater is working great and we truly enjoyed it. We have rented frequently in numerous places not only in the US and i have to admit that you are the top of the list.

Beautiful home and Great location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a wonderful 6 night vacation and we could not have asked for a better home to stay at than Luann and Craig's home. This home is absolutely gorgeous, and felt very comfortable to us. Also the pool has sun almost the entire day. The deck and Tiki Bar was just an added bonus as we sat out there for our morning coffee and watched the flying fish and boats cruise the canal.

This was our first time renting a home, and cannot wait to plan our next vacation and rent this same home.

Thank you Luann and Craig for your hospitality

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Cape Coral for over 10 yrs trying to find the perfect place. This house fits our needs perfectly. 2017 will be our 3rd year here, and we're looking for more. Perfect hosts too.

A Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Luann & Craig's Cape Coral home. The house is so welcoming and comfortable - great open floor plan, well-stocked kitchen, fantastic lanai with pool and barbeque (and gorgeous views and wonderful sunsets). The layout is perfect for sharing and privacy with the master suite in one direction off the living room and two bedrooms + bath in the other. We loved the pool, the flying fish, meals on the lanai....the whole experience. The location is also great - right off the main road/bridge to Ft Myers (so not far from Sanibel Island), close to a good Publix market, and convenient for reaching the Edison-Ford Estates, good restaurants, and JetBlue Park if you're a Red Sox fan.

While we've stayed elsewhere in Cape Coral, we'll definitely plan to return to this house! It felt like being home away from home. Thank you for the wine and for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Honeymoon Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a wonderful week at this incredible home for our honeymoon. The location is perfect to venture out to Sanibel & Captiva islands, or Pine island with great little "Funky" shops and very good ice cream. The favorite of ours at the house was relaxing by the heated pool and watching the sun set while sipping a favorite wine. The canal provided us with much entertainment with a lot to see such as fish jumping,Boats, birds flying and one bird sitting on a branch that seemed to enjoy our company too. I would highly recommend this home to anyone. Should we go back that way we would love to stay there. Thank You to our wonderful hosts....
