Ingrid purchased this House in 2011
Why Ingrid chose Pelican
We were familiar with the area and always desired to be at the lake in a large home. It had all the features we were looking for: Great location, sunset view, secure and quiet area. It met all of the requirements and in addition was large, roomy and spacious, had great layout, high ceilings, view of the lake from all rooms, and a garage hidden from street. Much work would be required, but well worth the effort. The transformation was completed when we added the pool and deck area to make it our private resort, now available also as a vacation rental.
What makes this House unique
We have transformed the Blue Pelican into a One-of-a-Kind tropical resort like home with wide open spaces inside and out, selected beautiful decor, painted in soft island colors, added popular entertainment features, added an over-sized waterfront pool deck with huge picture window for unobstructed magnificent views of lake and sunsets. The Blue Pelican is now a Cape Coral vacation home like none-other. Come and see for yourself.

This house was perfect. Ingrid is a great, attentive host! We spent most of our time enjoying the pool and cooking at the house. Would 1000% stay here again. Thank you Ingrid!
We enjoyed every moment we were there. It was very quite and secluded but yet there were people around you. Close to everything you needed.
Best vacation rental ever
My husband and I stayed at this vacation rental for the very first time. We were very pleased with this vacation rental. Very clean the owner was very awesome at responding and anything needed. I cannot wait to come back. This will be my vacation home probably twice a year if not more. Thanks Ingrid for all you have done
Stunning views. The epitome of relaxation. Location, location, location! Pictures do not do justice!
We recently spent 6 days and 5 nights at Blue Pelican and are we so thankful and pleased with our selection of this home. The location was perfection. Private and tucked away it is perfectly situated right on a quiet lake. The sunrises with our morning coffee (made in either a coffee pot or Keurig, your choice!) were peaceful and calm. The sunsets were breathtaking. In between those there was no shortage of sunshine whatsoever!!! The sun hit the oversized patio and pool from approximately 10am until sunset. Bring a little Bluetooth speaker for music and you’re all set for a day of relaxing, swimming, book reading, grilling, drinks, and sunbathing.
A Publix and Walmart are conveniently located within 1-2 miles away. Also close by is the center of town and a wide variety of restaurants. This modern home has all appliances and utensils you could ever need or hope for to create any meal, snack, or drink. The master bedroom had a lovely oversized walk-closet, huge master bath, and amazingly comfortable king sized bed. We appreciated the Roku TV as well. There was a sliding door that led right out to the patio and pool. The guest bedroom had an equally comfortable queen sized bed, second oversized bathroom right next to it, large closet space, and also had a door that lead to the patio and pool. The washer and dryer were so convenient to have! All towels were provided as was a clothes rack to air dry things as needed. The living room was a great common space as well. There wasn’t a space in the whole house that was bad.
Ingrid was the most pleasant and responsive owner. It was obviously to us right away that she is deeply invested in this home and its maintenance and experience for guests. She replied to any of our questions promptly. She checked in with us upon check-in and check-out to make sure we had everything we needed. We appreciated that curtesy very much.
We are already looking forward to planning another stay at Blue Pelican; it’s an absolute gem! You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.
Almost a 5
The reason for our stay was for my husband and I to have a nice romantic vacation. Ambiance was going to be key. The House was beautiful but when it came to reading the book about the house instructions we found out there would be no light in the pool. This was critical in my feelings of creating ambiance. Had we known this we would not have picked this house. Everything else was good. Good fishing and beautiful sunsets but the evenings lacked that sparkle we were looking for. Oh, and Ingrid and Jerry are WONDERFUL!
The Blue Pelican is a meticulous, beautiful home we highly recommend. The patio/lanai is all my husband and I needed or wanted. Although, it is located in a neighborhood we felt completely alone. The pool is perfect, the hot tub welcoming and the weather was on our side the entire week. My husband enjoyed some fishing off the dock too. We cant wait to book another week.
When you are at the 'Blue Pelican', you have easy access to all of the surrounding Islands. There are many opportunities to rent a boat in Cape Coral or at any one of the islands to go boating for the day. With many golf courses in the area, a different course can be played every day of the week. If tennis is your game, playing at the Yacht Club or other area locations is always an option. No need to go anywhere for fishing as it can be done right in front of the house catching whatever Lake Mohave has to offer. If a change from sun bathing by the lake is desired, there are a number of beaches within easy access as well as FL State Parks with great beaches. Of course the sport of shopping is at its finest here in SW Florida, and combined with sightseeing either by car, boat, scooter, or bike it makes for a dream vacation. Gambling is available also on land or on board a ship with great dining opportunities. Dining out is a favorite as SW Florida specialties abound in many nearby restaurants. The arts are well represented locally with plays from broadway, concerts, and artist exhibits.
