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.

Fantastic Home and Setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week at Pelican Cove!! We found the home to be even better than expected - the description was very accurate and the house was even nicer than the pictures indicate. We had 9 people there and this vacation was one for us to remember for a long time. The home, the pool and the dock area are all excellent. We rented a boat for several days and just loved all the water that this home connects you to. From the dock we saw many dolphin and had a mom and baby manatee come by several times - the kids were so excited !! The property management company stopped by a couple of times early in our week to be sure we were happy - which we were. We would highly recommend this home and this was the best vacation - it will be tough to top!

What a lovely Home for our family to vacation in. The home was everything that was described and more. The house was Modern, Clean, with great amenities. The pool, decks, docks, and waterway behind the home provided great fun for everyone to enjoy. The quiet location was close to many fun places and restaurants. What a gem. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great rental on a canal and very close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay over Christmas and New Years. We had 4 couples staying over the 15 days and had a great time. The new dock and boat wells worked out perfect for 26' rental boat and gave great views of the canal. Dolphins, manatee, and even alligators passed by! The pool and hot tub were warm just as requested. We rented both the upper and lower units and used the lower unit primarily for the pool and entertaining. Would definitely book again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Delighted to hear that you had a good Christmas and New Year break. Whilst spotting dolphins and manatees off our dock is fairly common, seeing an alligator certainly is as usually the water is too salty for them. We would be delighted to welcome you back at some point in the future.

Wonderful House in Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the layout of Pelican Cove which had everything on hand for us to have a really relaxing stay. Jim and Louise have obviously put a lot of thought into the personal touches and we felt very much at home as soon as we stepped through the front door. There is plenty to do and lots to see in and around Fort Myers. We enjoyed exploring on foot and, for those interested in flying, we hired a plane from Paragon Flight School nearby and flew down the coast to the Keys. Thanks again Louise and Jim for a great holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Fascinating to hear how you got to the Keys. We have used the Key West Express ferry (departs 5 mins from our home) which is a great way to get there but flying yourself down sounds even better!

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property and what a great location! Clean, comfortable and spacious with all the facilities you need. We loved the canoes and saw dolphins on all 3 occasions we ventured down the canal into the open water of Pelican Bay. We even went for breakfast on San Carlos Island by canoe! The hot tub and pool were great after a day exploring Sanibel and Captiva. I'd thoroughly recommend this as a location for a family holiday!

Owner's Response: Delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay, especially the kayaking. It is an ideal spot to kayak from if guests are considering renting kayaks which are available nearby.

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.
