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 Siesta Isle

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.

Love this house! Perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

Jim is absolutely fantastic. He was so great working with us as we were unsure what Irma was going to do to the house, the area or if power would be back up. He gave us some options and it all worked out. We were able to go back to Pelican Cove which we absolutely love. The new dock area is beautiful and as always we enjoy the sunset from the patio. Do not hesitate to rent this home as it is very clean, well cared for and absolutely the best pool. Jim thank you again so much for your patience working with my group. We will be booking next year very soon!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. Our management team excelled in terms of getting the house and pool straight after Irma. We were so grateful that there was just some very minor damage which has been put right. We would of course be delighted to welcome you back next year.

Great house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home. Used the dock to launch kayaks almost daily. A lower level was great when tides were low. Very nice pool and house is very nice on inside. Owner was very considerate and easy to deal with. We hope to return in the future. No complaints.

good value and nice neighborhood

I actually liked the property better than I thought I would, sometimes the pictures are a little misleading but not here. We met the property manager when we arrived and he was very accomadating and helpful. We had eight golfers in the house and had plenty of room , big screen TV's throughout and large pool and deck area's out back , plenty of parking, we will be staying again next year.

A pleasnt stay at Pelican Retreat

This was a pleasant break with ample facilities for a family of 7. Location was good for Beach Boating and shops when when needed. The letting Agent was friendly and helpful. The Villa facilities were excellent and met all of our needs.

Location, Location - Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family utilized both floors of the home for our stay. We had a crew of nine and found that the home had plenty of space, both inside and out. Jim and Louise have done a marvleous job of providing all the the creature comforts with decor and a well stocked kitchen, but also with the amenities outside to spoil you. We took advantage of the boat dock and went fishing out in the Gulf, the pool provided a great place to play and unwind. And each family member enjoyed the jacuzzi spa as an additional way to unwind.

Communication from Jim and Louise was prompt and thorough. We recieved advance notice of an appliance delivery/swap-out - this never interfered with our plans.

Location of Pelican Cove is perfect for any beach, swimming, fishing, shopping and eating activity you can think of. The home itself was very clean and there were plenty of towels and pillows.

Well done Jim and Louise - we highly recommend this lovely home! Thank you for sharing your slice of Florida paradise!!

Fantastic property, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with stunning views overlooking water. Very clean, pool lovely and even saw dolphin and manatee in the canal. Perfect location only a few mins from beach and restaurants, with trolley bus stop just a few mins walk. Would definitely stay there again.

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.
