Description from owner

Please check our availability calendar for available dates.

Discount given for multiple months. Monthly rentals preferred, weekly rentals welcomed.

Welcome to the Lazy Pelican! This is a fabulous, tastefully decorated home locate on the Santa Fe Canal. You will love the views from the master bedroom suite, great room, kitchen and guest bedroom, all of which open onto the screened-in lanai area and south facing private pool.

The owner has thoughtfully accessorized the home to make your stay as convenient and luxurious as possible. Bring your own boat or rent one and dock it on the private dock. There is only one bridge (clearance of 9.25') to the Gulf of Mexico.

Cape Coral is all about waterfront living, with over 400 miles of canals. Take to the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico in a boat - bring your own or rent one. Many boat rental facilities offer to bring it right to your dock so no tow hitch is needed! This is an ideal location for your vacation stay.

Take in the sites all around you! Shopping, fine dining, cafes, spas, golf courses, beaches and more. Take in a show at the Broadway Palms Dinner Theatre, visit Edison and Ford's winter homes. How about the water slides at Sunsplash Water Park or enjoy the day at the Shell Factory that also offers an Animal Park.

The Lazy Pelican is located about 30 minutes from the Southwest Florida airport (RSW) and across the river from Fort Myers. This places you minutes away from magnificent Sanibel and Captiva Islands which are famous for shelling, the sugar white sands of Fort Myers Beach or Bonita Springs and the artist colony at Matlacha. Nearby tourist attractions include the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins Spring training facilities in Fort Myers and an abundance of golf courses.

“Lazy Pelican Rental”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2015

This home is nice! Well decorated and comfy. Good location and quiet neighborhood. I did have some issues though - I arrived on a Saturday evening, trying to get the key out of the lockbox in the dark was an issue and I didn't have a flashlight - my kids have now downloaded that app for me. Also the cable and internet service were out Sat night and all day on Sunday. In addition, two fire alarms chirped all night on Saturday. The agent came out Sunday morning and replaced batteries in them, but on Wednesday during the night another alarm began to chirp and chirped til around noon and then stopped. I thought the handyman had been by and replaced the battery but it began chirping in the middle of the night. The handyman came out the next morning and replaced that battery and the batteries of every other alarm in the house and the problem was clear. I did lose 3 nights of sleep with the chirping though. I hope all these issues are resolved and the next renter has a more relaxing stay.

“Lazy Pelocom”

This house was exactly what I was looking for. It was quite clean and the split bedroom was perfect for privacy. I would have liked a movable shower head in the 2 bedroom area bathroom but that was a small issue. I did not meet her but Debbie was very personable & eager to please. The canal was a beautiful view from the patio and the sunsets were outstanding. A great home for a family.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the review. We strive to make your stay a great experience.

“Awesome!”

Reviewed 5 May 2013

Had a wonderful and peaceful time at the Lazy Pelican - absolutely nothing to say negative about the house itself! We felt very much at home as the house was well equipped for our comfort.

“AWESOME!”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2013

Everything about our vacation experience was great! The property management - both remote and local - was very responsive, friendly and helpful. Everything in the contract, photos and home were exactly as pictured and promised. When booking sight unseen from the internet, it is quite a leap of faith that things will be as pictured. The photos actually don't do the house or canal views justice - both are far better than we expected! The location is convenient to everything we wanted to do and see. If I had to find one negative thing, it would be that the solar-heated pool never warmed up enough to get in - and we still enjoyed the lounge chairs and outdoor dining table pool-side. Wish I could live here year-round. I definitely plan to come back to this property!!
