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.

Perfect Position

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Blue Pelican, It is in the perfect West facing position on the lake, so we could make the most of every sunset.

The house was very clean and is well equipped, especially the kitchen which had everything you could want.

The pool was delightful and makes the most of the views over the lake.

We didn't use the hot tub but it looked brand new and very inviting if thats your thing.

We really liked feeding the Terrapins off the dock and watching the occasional Osprey and Pelican on the lake.

Definitely this is somewhere you can fully relax and enjoy doing as much or as little as you like.

It would be hard to find a better position rental in Cape Coral, so we have already booked for next year.

Fantastic location and views but needing some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

Our stay in late October 2017 was very enjoyable. The pool and pool area, including the view are superb. The villa itself was a bit of a dissapointment and not really 5 star as advertised. The couch in the lounge has seen better days and the bathrooms are very dated. The metal frame of the hot tub cover was completely rusted through on one side and collapsing during use. The barbecue was chaired up inside the garage limiting it's use to the front yard, so not what I had in mind for my outdoor dining by the pool. The lanai had been damaged during a recent hurricane, so insects and birds inside, as well as debris from the trees going in the pool. Very well equipped kitchen but no welcome pack, and no cable TV either. Luckily our Netflix account came to the rescue. As I said, a very enjoyable break, but sadly not meeting all our expectations.

Owner's Response: The strongest hurricane ever to hit Florida, Irma, left 6.2 million without power, killed at least 6 people, shattered homes and caused billions of dollars of damage. Our British guests, to arrive about 30 days thereafter, were glad to hear that there was only minimal damage to the villa, a few ripped/torn screens on pool cage, a fallen palm tree, Comcast cable TV out, Jacuzzi cover damage, a chained grill and therefore not all perfect due to Irma, and thus chose to keep the reservation. We are glad they had a wonderful time, were happy with the extra cleanings of the pool and that Comcast restored service. The last screen is to be fixed in January. The Jacuzzi cover is brand new and has special lift mechanism for ease of use and enjoyment of spa while watching the sun set or with star filled night sky and moon above making the gentle ripples on Lake Mohavie glisten for enjoyment of evenings at the Blue Pelican.

Beautiful place. Upon some repairs, it would be a 5 star!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. There were a few things that needed attention, such as the sectional needed replaced, the hot tub needs a new cover and locks need replaced. Unfortunately the hurricane did some damages to the pool screen area as well, which debris settled into the pool. It was cleaned during our stay. House keeping told us these would promptly be taken care of by the owner, the screen repair was on a very long waiting list which was understandable. The home was clean and beautifully furnished. Great kitchen with everything we needed for our stay. We would definitely like to return in the future, so we can rate it a 5 star!

Owner's Response: We have a very sick son in London, UK, who had to undergo 3 operations this summer and was hospitalized for 3 months and just got released with months of recovery time ahead of him. Both, Ingrid and I, were there for him. and Ingrid is still with Duane through the beginning of 2018 to care for him as he is unable to care for himself. This family tragedy has prevented us from replacing the sectional seating area as was planned for this summer, but upon her return this item will be taken care of right away. I am just not the guy to make this purchase by myself without my wife's input. Please accept my apologies.

Beautiful, relaxing home, with stunning views.

The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need and more.

It is very spacious, including the exterior.

Great views across the water. Enjoyed feeding the terrapins from the dock.

Will be back!

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.
