About the property

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 Jim and Louise Allpass

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!

Jim and Louise Allpass purchased this house in 2015

Why Jim and Louise Allpass chose Fort Myers Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

Tranquility, easy access to the gulf by boat, all amenities close by.

Stunning waterfront property in the Florida sun

  • 5 of 5

We came to Pelican cove with our family for 2 weeks from England and had the most amazing time at the property. The house itself is set in a beautiful location surrounded by beautiful water inlets, boats and wildlife and is just a short walk away from bars and a short drive away from Fort Myers town. (about $6 in a taxi.)

We had seen photos of the property before our arrival but felt they did not do elican Cove justice when we actually saw it first hand. Stunning and well furnished rooms, stunning pool, deck and outside hot-tub with perfect, quet surroundings.

Inside the house was clean and had everything a family could want for a 2 week stay. Plenty of space in all the rooms, aircon throughout, great Wifi, huuuge TV for the rare times we were inside and extremely homely, clean and well kept.

Jim and Louise were available on email through out our stay should we have any queries about the area or the house and had clearly ensured everything was available for a large family.

I cannot rate this property highly enough and would love to think that we will return there in the future. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here.

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We are a Norwegian family consisting of 11 members, 6 grown ups and 5 children. We really had a great time at Pelican Cove and Pelican Nest. The pool was amazing and we spent a lot of time there. We loved this place and had the best holiday ever. Maybe we will come back one day.

The property was perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Having the 2 separate living spaces worked out great. The family with toddler and preschool age children were able to have their space to spread out while the rest of us had plenty of room upbstairs. The pool and pier were excellent. We saw manatees, dolphins and lots of jumping fish. We had an awesome time!
