Gorgeous, elegant and stunning sunset views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided on a last minute get away to FL. We usually stay at hotels but this time we opted for a rental since it was during Thanksgiving. We found the Blue Pelican and it was everything we expected and much more. Ingrid, the owner, was great to deal with from the beginning to end. The home is gorgeous! Amazing pool, Jacuzzi and pool deck overlooking the lake. The outside furniture was perfect; sunset views are spectacular. The home was immaculate in furnishings and cleanliness. The kitchen was equipped with everything and anything. We ventured out to Cape Harbour shops and restaurants which was very close by. Also did some great chartered fishing in Fort Myers which was very easily accessible from the home. We couldn't have asked for more and would def. recommend the Blue Pelican to anyone! Thank you Ingrid for sharing your home!

Paradise Found at the Blue Pelican!

  • 5 of 5

Kudos to Ingrid, the homeowner, and her wonderfully romantic-relaxing house at Blue Pelican in Cape Coral, Florida. The house was incredibly clean, comfortable, and welcoming. It offered so many amenities that made our November vacation memorable. From watching the "supermoon" from the hot tub and pool to relaxing with the living room doors hidden bringing the outside in!. The house was beautifully decorated, maintained, and spotless. We even drove to nearby Sanibel Island and took along the beach umbrella, chairs, and beach towels. Great items to have at hand since we flew down with limited personal belongings. Whether you want to relax "at home," explore the area and it's many islands and canals, or explore the nightlife and shopping; you won't be disappointed! Our only disappointment is that we couldn't stay longer!! Can't wait to go back to make more memories to last a lifetime!

What a beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

Well furnished , well equipped and clean! Beautiful water views from most rooms bring the outside in. Close to fun eateries and only about 30 min from the airport. What more could you want? Also owner and property custodian were nice to work with and accommodation for early check-in was quickly granted...

Owner's Response: You set a record by catching that very, very large fish right off the seawall by the Blue Pelican with no fishing license required. Future guests will have a lot of fun trying to push you out of first place.

Pleasant Stay at a Nice Home

  • 4 of 5

My wife, young daughter, and I stayed ten days at this home. The house was in good shape although furnishings were somewhat dated and bedding needed replaced.

The views were beautiful from the pool area and accurately depicted in the VRBO photos.

We had an electrical issue with the kitchen. The homeowner responded quickly and was willing to stay at the home with the electrician until the repairs were done. The clothes iron was also in disrepair and they replaced it for us on the same trip.

A few things that were annoying:

The thermostat is controlled remotely by the owner. This was very inconvenient as we weren't able to adjust the temperature up and down to suit our tastes without contacting them. We've rented a lot of vacation homes and this was the first time we've ran across this.

There was no pool light due to "excessive cost of replacing burned out bulbs." This made night time swimming less enjoyable.

We also weren't allowed to adjust the temperature in the jacuzzi. We would have liked it somewhat cooler during the day.

Overall a good vacation that we don't regret but we'll likely stay at a different home on our next vacation to the Cape Coral area.

Owner's Response: The Blue Pelican, a resort style villa, has new Tommy Bahama like furnishings and bedding with tropical designs emphasizing the subtropical atmosphere and climate of Cape Coral, FL. Committed to a higher standard, any mechanism on the property that caused to malfunction without prior notice immediately gets 100% of our attention and is fixed as quickly and expediently as possible. The remote thermostat control allows changing temperature setting to 78 degrees F, per LCEC (electric company), when home is not occupied. When occupied, temperature is set to guest’s comfort plus or minus four degrees per LCEC’s seasonal recommendation. Or, for a small upcharge guest gains unrestricted control. The pool light is replaced once a year and should last from year to year if guests only turned off the light upon leaving pool, but that not happening causes the light to burn out prematurely. We love getting reviews, but are repulsed by falsehoods and lies. Every guest has total control over all Jacuzzi settings at all times!!!! We look forward to welcoming you, our future guests, and promise to do everything possible to make your vacation experience enjoyable from start to finish.

lovely out look from pool

  • 4 of 5

The view from the pool is just beautiful and overall the house is in excellent condition and equipped to a very high standard....The only reason does not get 5 stars was the 2nd bedroom bed was smaller than expected. We have 2 teenage daughters that had to share the bed and found it a little on the small side. It was a shame the 3rd bedroom was equipped with pool table/table tennis as again a lovely idea but too small as a room to be used for this as we were worried about hitting the walls with the cues...... thought this might be better as a bedroom for families who do not wish to share a small double bed....... but over all a lovely house

Owner's Response: Guest obviously chose the wrong house for his family----it is clearly advertised: 2 bedrooms with 2nd bedroom having a Queen-size bed. Tip: Read carefully, choose wisely, DO NOT COMPLAIN WHEN OWN ACTIONS ARE AT ROOT OF PROBLEM.

From the Owner

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.

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.
