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 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.

Excellent place for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Blue Pelican. All rooms looked just like the photos and it was sparkly clean. The house has everything you need for a short or extended stay, along with bikes, kayaks, and fishing equipment. Owner notified us when service personal would be there and was pleasant in all communications. We spent lots of time relaxing on the deck overlooking the water, using the hot tub, and swimming in the pool. The water turtles enjoyed coming in to the new boat dock to beg for treats. One of the screens on the lanai is missing due to hurricane damage, and although a repair was scheduled, it didn't get fixed yet. I'm sure it's quite low on the priority lists due to such extensive damage and repairs needed in many other places. Really the only concern I had was that I'd have liked a few more lights on the pool deck at night for safety. I would gladly return to this lovely home.

The Blue Pelican is a gorgeous home, the perfect romantic retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Pelican is perfect! Upon our arrival we noticed the lush, mature tropical foliage and quiet neighborhood. When we unlocked the front door and stepped inside, it took our breath away! Gorgeous decor, large living room with a sectional couch and blanket for getting cozy, and big bonus, a table tennis/pool table room! We only ate out twice, as the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals at home. The master bed was so comfortable, and the sliding door to the poolside lanai was wonderful for coffee and a swim in the mornings. The huge screened in back patio is perfect for privacy, loumging, sunning. There is a family of turtles who live by the dock...our neighbor was feeding them bread, and we discovered that the turtles are wild for banana! From a dip in the perfect-temperature pool, to watching the spectacular sunsets from the Jacuzzi, we cannot say enough about the Blue Pelican! It felt like home after the first day.

Ingrid is absolutely the best! She responds promptly, and fulfilled everything promised. She even includes her favorite biking route in the guest book! We can't leave this review without mentioning the housekeeper, Sue. The place was SPOTLESS. She even went out of her way to chat with us, and tried to find someone to take us out on their boat to catch Tarpon. Sue, you are incredible! We will definitely return, and recommend this home.

More than a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Blue Pelican home was wonderful. We wanted to explore Southwest Florida for our 25th anniversary and stay in a house instead of a hotel. This home had everything you could ask for. The sunset views, pool, and hydrotherapy jacuzzi were amazing. The king bed and new motorized reclining sectional sofa were very comfortable. The owners provided everything you could think of: beach chairs, bikes, scissors, sewing kit with a safety pin (which we needed), small coolers, ice packs, details about Cape Coral and restaurants. Everything was close by, uniques restaurants, shopping, parks, and beaches. We visited Pine Island, Sanibel Island, Captiva, Bonita Springs and Lovers Key State Park. We enjoyed the pool area, the panoramic view, and the tropical landscape.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two teenagers had a wonderful stay! As all the reviews stated, the property is well maintained. The kitchen is amazing and well stocked for cooking meals at home! We took the trolley to Fort Myers Beach which is easy to do! We also watched a couple movies at night on the large TV! The sunsets are beautiful and can watch from the lovely outdoor area! I highly recommended this house!

From the moment we walked in the front door we fell in love with this property. The immediate view of Lake Mohave out thru the glass wall across the pool is gorgeous. The back of the house and pool face due west, so you have an unobstructed view of the glorious Florida sunset every day. The split floor plan of the house is great for privacy with bedrooms on either end. Overall the privacy is unbelievable. Tropical foliage surrounds the property on three sides eliminating sounds from the street and neighboring houses on each side. The house was immaculate upon arrival. It is roomy with very comfortable furniture. The flatscreen wall mounted tv is state of the art and large. The only thing nicer than the house was the host. Ingrid was always available by email in a matter of minutes to address any questions we had. She is a super nice and friendly lady. Yard and pool service came weekly, early in the morning and were no bother at all. Overall, I highly recommend this property. Any time we are in Cape Coral, this will be the first place we check for availability. Thank you Ingrid for sharing your beautiful home with us.

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.
