Pelican Cove- Family Waterfront Home With Large Pool, Hot Tub & Dock, Sleeps 11

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Family, Waterfront Home With Large Pool Set In Quiet Private Community

Pelican Cove is a family waterfront home with a large heated pool offering accommodation for up to 11 persons between the four bedrooms. Set in the beautiful and quiet private community of Siesta Isles with no through traffic.

The house totals around 2,900 sq ft and has four bedrooms and three bathrooms- one large bedroom and bathroom being in a self-contained unit (Pelican Nest) at ground level. This makes the home ideal for a large or extended family or say for grandparents to be with the family but to also enjoy their own space.

The large heated pool (30 x 12 ft) enjoys sunshine throughout the whole day and is perfect for playing/ doing laps, or simply chilling on the sun loungers (6 provided). There is also a large table with chairs for outdoor dining. The private dock on the canal right behind the house is a perfect spot for fishing or for mooring a boat which can be hired from one of the many local marinas. A cabana houses a hot tub with stunning views over the water. Quality outdoor lighting allows the pool area to be used and enjoyed after dark.

In Pelican Cove (upstairs), the lounge area contains a large sectional sofa so that your family can cuddle up and watch their favourite TV show or movie (blu ray player). The open plan recently refurbished kitchen area has a large dining table and breakfast bar. A large utility/ laundry room is connected to the kitchen. Patio doors lead out to a screened lanai overlooking the pool and canal.

The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with double shower, walk-in closet and TV. It also has sliding doors to the lanai where you can take in the bay breeze and canal activity. There are two other bedrooms, one has a double bed with direct access to the family bathroom and a walk-in closet. The third bedroom contains two twin beds and walk-in closet.

The downstairs unit (Pelican Nest) is made up of a combined kitchen, dining and lounge. There is one large bedroom/ suite with two double beds, one single, sofa and walk-in closet. A full length drape/ curtain provides additional privy between beds if required. The entrance hall also has a sofa bed if required. There is one bathroom with a shower. The kitchen leads directly on to the pool and patio.

Our home is also equipped with high speed WiFi. We also provide bath and pool towels, hairdryer and full size washer and dryer.

There are numerous restaurants and supermarkets (Walmart and Publix 1.5 miles away) nearby as well as other attractions such as golf courses, crazy golf, designer shopping outlets and of course the beach!

There is plenty of parking for 4 cars or more.

You and your family will love this perfect setting- so relaxing and peaceful and yet so close to everything, with something for everyone of all ages.

About the Owner

We live in the UK, 35 miles west of London, and have been visiting Florida regularly over the last 30 years. We purchased our first home in Fort Myers in 2002, an executive villa on Beach walk Isles. Having successfully rented the property and enjoyed staying there ourselves we decided, in early 2015, to look for a second home there which is slightly larger and also a waterfront home. We closed on this home in July 2015. We look forward to one day spend a significant amount of time at the home and to become boat owners!

A beautiful holiday home, in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic holiday! We would recommend this place to everyone. The accommodation was beautiful, spacious and clean. We were a family of 5 adults and one child (2 yr old) the pool was plenty big enough for us all, with a good supply of inflatables - we didn't need heating at all for this time of year. We contacted the owner & manager, with a couple of questions we found them to be extremely prompt in their replies and actions - the owner in particular went over any beyond helping us with any queries both before and during our stay - thank you Jim! We saw dolphins swim past most days along with manatees basking in the canal system, the fishing was great too! During our stay our daughter got married, we would highly recommend any couples thinking of a beach wedding to contact Beach Promises LLC. (http://www.beachpromises.com/)

The accommodation is just a short walk from the Bayside Grille & Pinchers Crab Shack, which we enjoyed. Pastabilities & More just being a short drive. The nearest Walmart is just a short drive or cycle away too. Jungle golf was brilliant, as was Pelican Arcade Beach Bowl - who went that extra mile to keep our 2 year old entertained. For anyone looking for a round of golf we'd highly recommend Pelican Preserve Golf Club - an amazing course with refreshments brought out to you on the course! Sanibel and Miromar outlets are a must too!

An amazing time was had by all of us, and we can't wait to return.

Annual Girl's trip

  • 5 of 5

We take an annual girl's trip this was our 5th. By far this was the nicest house we have had. It was so clean, perfect layout, great beds and pillows, everything you need in the kitchen, for us as we spent all day at the pool and screened in area at night it was outstanding. Jim was so quick to respond, he made the reservation process so easy. We will definitely be back. Seriously considering this for our family trips as well. Thank you Jim!!!!

Large Poperty, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 7 (including the Grandparents). The house was spotlessly clean and just as the pictures show. The accommodation downstairs is a little more dated than upstairs but again very clean.

All towels are provided for the pool and the beach, the filter on the pool was not working too well but a phone call and the pool guy was there within an hour and all sorted.

It is a fantastic location a few minutes drive from Fort Myers Beach and restaurants such as Doc Fords and Pinchers.

It is worth a trip to the Beach Cinema on Fort Myers Beach - they serve food and drink as you watch the movie.

We drove to Sanibel/Captiva islands and enjoyed a drink in 'The Mucky Duck English Pub', you can park there for free and spend time on the beach.

The kids loved the pool and the WiFi of course - loads of floats etc for them to play with. If you go the beach there is beach chairs, umbrella etc.

I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and hope we can return in the future.

Thank you Jim and Louise

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Sorry to hear you had a small issue with the pool but glad that the management company sorted it out very promptly which is our experience and having them based a short distance away means they can respond very quickly. With regard to your comment about the accommodation in Pelican Cove in being a little dated we do have this in hand in that on our next visit in October we are planning to replace all the dark bedroom furniture with something more modern and lighter in colour. We certainly hope you can return in the not too distant future.

Just about perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect! Plenty of room and even nicer than the pictures online. All the items we needed for cooking, towels, and linens were already there. If you want a nice relaxing getaway, this is the place for you! This is the third time we have used HomeAway and by far the best experience so far. Owners were nice to work with and responded promptly. Really, really nice vacation!

Pelican Cove - Fort Myers

  • 4 of 5

Great relaxed location, and lovely home backing onto the water. Property was spacious (more than enough for 4 adults and 4 kids), homely and spotlessly clean. Pool area was great with plenty of loungers and space for kids to play. Loved the Fort Myers area and found a number of nice restaurants, including Doc Ford's and The Beached Whale. Enjoyed day trips out to Sanibel and Lovers Key. Well worth a stay!!

Fantastic property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Pelican Cove is an incredible house in a great location. The house offered everything we wanted and more in a really peaceful situation. It was easy to get to good local restaurants and the beach and was only a couple of minutes from local shops to get groceries. The dock setting enabled great fishing and the large pool was wonderful and very relaxing. There were plenty of sunbeds and chairs and the hot tub looked very inviting although we mainly used the pool.

The house was spotless, well maintained and very well equipped with lots of crockery, glasses etc and all the appliances you could need. The lounge was very comfortable and spacious and the kitchen was a great space for entertaining with a large dining table and seating if you chose to eat in. We often sat on the outside enclosed porch area which gave you great views of the dock and canal.

We had a couple of minor queries and these were responded to immediately by Jim who I felt was always available should I need to ask anything. Likewise, the management company was on hand if I had a more pressing concern but this was not necessary.

Our holiday surpassed our expectations and this was due in large to the accommodation which we felt gave us the peaceful break we were hoping for. I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to family or friends.

It was a real privilege to stay in the house and we hope to be back in the near future. Thank you Louise and Jim.

Location

From the Owner

The location is first class in terms of being so close to the beach but also in a quiet and attractive neighbourhood. Prior to purchasing the home we rented this property for a few days to ensure that it fulfilled our requirements in terms of a spacious home and being able to enjoy the outdoor life. We rented a boat which confirmed that we could be in the Gulf or backwaters behind Estero Island in 10 minutes. Whilst enjoying the pool area we saw both manatees and dolphins swimming up the canal. The additional accommodation downstairs will be ideal when either our adult children, other family members or friends come to stay with us.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : South West Florida International (RSW) at 15 Miles Nearest Barpub : Bayside Grille at 0.5 Miles Nearest Golf : Shell Point Golf Club at 5 Miles Nearest Motorway : Interstate 75 at 8 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Pinchers Crabshack at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Fort Myers beach at 1.5 Miles Car: recommended

The house is ideally situated for Fort Myers beach being just over a mile before the bridge over the Estero Island. Outside peak times and season the beach is either a 5 min drive, 30 min walk or alternatively the trolley bus stops at the entrance to Siesta Isle. The island resorts of Sanibel and Captiva are a 15 minute drive away. Miami, Tampa and Orlando are all within easy reach.
