About Ingrid

Ingrid grew up in Europe and worked in Germany, England, and France before coming to the USA where she was awarded the Doctor of Education degree. Jerry is a honored veteran of the Vietnam War, a sharp-shooter, and in later years investigated for the Inspector General’s office of the Army. He retired from now Alcatel-Lucent.

Ingrid purchased this house in 2011

Why Ingrid chose Cape Coral

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.

Absolutely perfect -

  • 5 of 5

Blue Pelican is absolutely stunning, the relaxing pool area and the fishing dock were just what we needed after a crazy week at Disney. This has to be the most well equipped house we've ever stayed in, more gadgets and equipment in the kitchen than I've ever seen. Beds were comfortable, we slept like logs while we were there. Brilliant communication from Ingrid, I would highly recommend staying at Blue Pelican, the pictures don't do it justice, if we're ever in the area again, we will definitely be contacting you. Thanks so much Ingrid!

Beautiful property but house needs work

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival we first noticed how overgrown the landscape was. (I'm not sure the landscaping has seen trimmers in years). Once we walked inside the house it was beautiful, it's been updated with modern touches, however it still has signs of the eighties. The bathroom lighting had a hood supported from the wall, the anchors are coming loose so of course it's got quite the angle, (just a way for a renter to be taken advantage of by an owner not repairing). The master shower, WOW, it's as small if not smaller than a cruise ship shower, this was surprising considering the bathroom itself is oversized. The master bedroom fan, although had been replaced, sounds like a blacksmith hammering metal on a forge. The master has sliding doors with vertical blinds, (yeah, the eighties). Wouldn't be so bad if they would close and keep light out, waking up at 7:00 on vacation because of light is something I can do at home. The living has triple sliders with again vertical blinds, however these slider don't unlock so going out to the pool patio has to be done through the kitchen sliders. So aside from the aesthetics of the eighties and a fan that will wake the dead the rest of the house has everything you need to relax. A view that's worth a million bucks, its peaceful, quiet, and just tranquil. The pool is definitely maintained and was wonderful along with the hot tub to relax in. The last complaint is, the owner does a hell of a job with the do's and dont's of the house and even says do not lock the screen door so the pool guy can enter, well how about going a bit further and listing the time frame as to when people will be showing up at the house so you're not surprised by someone in the back yard. For example, the pool guys shows up at 7:45am on Thursday (what if we were walking around the house naked, what if we had just gotten in the shower) a little notice of when to expect someone would be nice. Lastly, the driveway was covered with palm frans from all the rain, we were gone most of Thursday upon returning the driveway was clear of palm debris, which was pushed to one side of the driveway, (the grass had not been cut, so it was not a lawn service). It's a little creepy to know you leave the house and people are showing up. Are they entering the house? Are they spying on you? What's the purpose? Security and safety should be the number one concern to a renter. I would come back based on the tranquility outside. Small repairs would need to be made.

Owner's Response: We graciously welcomed Seth to our home and expected him to respect the terms of the Rental Agreement. We were greatly disappointed when he did not. The Review, therefore, is a striking out, e.g., lighting is precisely as it should be, security lock on living room sliders is fully operational, etc. Our home is a wonderful place, it is safe, secure, well maintained and exceptional in many ways.

Perfect place - only wish is that they would have sleep number beds as the master bedroom was a firm bed with no give.

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.
