About Rick Maere

Spending 50 years in IL winters made me appreciate FL and I visited often. I always thought that I would one day live in FL and in 2010 was the perfect time to find a home. Not much more than 1 year after moving to FL, I found and married the lady of my dreams and we now live in Fort Myers, FL. We've kept our Cape Coral house for family, friends and even guests to use to avoid harsh, cold winter climates.

Rick Maere purchased this house in 2010

Why Rick Maere chose Pelican

Why? Because it has everything that FL has to offer. Located on Killer Lake, which is an open area at the end of the canal, it offers fishing, boating, wildlife watching, kayaking and spectacular sunsets. Plenty of fish, some manatee and even an occasional alligator can be seen from the dock.

What makes this house unique

Although I don't offer a boat, I have rented a boat several times and toured the canals. Slowly passing some of the magnificent houses built on the canal can be inspiring. Not to mention the times that I've 'set sail' on the open waters within the gulf of mexico and pulling the boat up to secluded islands, reefs and many, many fine watering and dining holes.

Great Family Property!

  • 5 of 5

Great family house, it was just as described on the web site. The large living area worked perfect for us. The pool was heated and cleaned weekly. We even caught a few fish from the dock in the canal! This is a well appointed property.

Thanks Rick for everything!

The perfect house for a family gathering!

  • 4 of 5

The property is exactly as described and located in a lovely quiet neighborhood. The kitchen was well appointed and the layout of the house was just perfect. Loved having the large glass wall open up onto the lanai and the pool was a hit with the grand-kids.

Thank you Rick!
