We provide FOC a full range of Fishing Rods and equipment for all ages. You just need to buy bait!
Property very nice, clean , modern and well furnished, did not like the pool alarm, i think 7 seconds to get in or out of the door is to short if you have children or holding drinks it is a nightmare when the internal 110 decibel siren goes off when really you only need a buzzer to warn that the door has been opened.
I also think the price should include the use of the BBQ and if people dont clean it then charge them, how much is a bottle of gas ? and the jacuzzi air should be included in the hire charge, but overall it was very nice and would return,

Dear Villa renters.
Overall we were delighted with Barry Eastlake's pelican dock
The villa we felt to be good value for money but although it was geared very well to anyone interested in boating we were not interested in that aspect so we probably lost out on its potential
The bathrooms although well appointed, for our extended family were barely adequate in numbers.
The description of the premises was accurate
I would be happy to recommend it to a friend but would make them aware that it was very isolated being 5 miles to the neared supermarket. Also the nearest beaches we located were a long drive away and sadly lacking in adjoining amenities eg sun beds or shade.
We found the pool alarm system, although a must from the point of view of child safety totally impractical for sensible family life. The villa we rented in Orlando had a removable fence between the poolside and the sitting area which was much more practical. We would have preferred to be able to temporarily disable the alarm in the evening when the children were in bed.
Unfortnately we were not made aware of this pool alarm system before we arrived which meant we were extremely concerned that the emergency services would be on our doorstep since obviously the pool alarm went off immediately we opened the pool door. It would have been helpful to have been made aware of the working of the pool alarm before we arrived at the property.
It was very helpful to be left a phone card and a welcome pack and it was greatly appreciated.
Although the management agent left us the note we had a few queries most of which were dealt with. Regarding the pool alarm system she said she would contact the owner and get back to us but did not. Our other queries were adequately dealt with.
Overall we were deligheted with our holiday in Pelican Dock

I am just writing to tell you about our stay at your home. My family and I enjoyed the convenience and how we had everything we needed at the house and if we had to get stuff it was just up the road. The house was very nice and had plenty of room for the 8 of us. We would recommend the house to others.
Thanks Josh Hartman.

Hi Barry, It has been a pleasure working with you and as I have said on the phone the house was perfect. I had rented a 21ft center console and the “James Bond” type ride out and back at 35 miles per hour to the lock was a daily highlight! Great Fishing, We caught 50-60 fish every day, the best was a 5lb Gag Grouper and the rest were either Mangrove Snapper or Spotted Sea Trout, nearly landed a very large shark but it got away. More than happy to do what I can to promote your house and I thank you again for the use and for being a gentleman when dealing with me, I can be a pain in the ***. Somehow I don’t think you will be surprised when I say I can’t count the number of homes I have not rented because of a lack or slow replies and outright rudeness. Cheers again and all the best, Chris Newton

You have a beautiful home and we are very grateful to have had the opportunity to stay there.
Hi Barry, We got into the rental last evening and it is VERY nice (just as we expected from your web page). Today is due to be 82 degrees with a light breeze last night sitting on the dock was heavenly!! Its gonna be a great 4 weeks you have a great place here. Nov 2014
The Barnes and Christopher family had a fantastic week at Villa Pelican Dock South Gulf Cove Villa during July 2012. The villa location and excellent amenities made this week a relaxing break following a hectic week at the Orlando Theme Parks. The villa was clean, tidy and spacious and had bed rooms to cater for a large family group. Directions from the owner from Orlando Airport made it easy to locate the villa. The local gulf coast beaches were just a short car journey from the villa and easy to find. There were plenty of choices for eating out at good quality, friendly and good value restaurants in the local area. I would recommend this villa for a relaxing enjoyable holiday. Thanks Barry (email address withheld) 27/07/14.
We had another lovely stay, this time in your Villa Pelican Dock. It is so quiet and peaceful (so surprising for a March break in Florida!!) and we heard the birds waking us up every day. Your place is spacious and comfortable, and tastefully decorated and everyone loved it! We had some friends who were in the area over for dinner and they were amazed with your place. The pool area is so beautiful and the nearby palm trees framed in our evening sunsets perfectly. My brother was staying at your other place on Athel Drive and we all loved both places.
We visited nearby lighthouse beach regularly and went shelling and found so many shark teeth. We even had a visit from a manatee just off shore. All in all, an incredible holiday.
Thank you and hopefully well be back again sometime.
Cheers, Tara 01/04/14 (email address withheld)
Well, its time we dro pped you a note to THANK YOU for the opportunity of renting your lovely house Pelican Dock. It was amassing, everything we could have hoped for, and we had a really lovely week relaxing and enjoying some beautiful Florida sunshine in those wonderful surroundings.
Best Regards Ray Feb 12 (email address withheld)
Once again, my family was very impressed with your holiday home. We all had a lovely time, thank you.
We are not sure of the dates yet when we will be returning to Florida, but rest assured, when we do, it will be to one of your houses!!
Thanks again, Rhonda WV USA. 25/07/2013
Many thanks for a great holiday and agreeing to a late departure time from the villa on Sunday.
An enjoyable time was had by all, at your villa. Its location was perfect and for us, it was a "good" find on the owner’s direct web site. We did have a couple of small problems which were dealt with promptly by Brenda. These in no way lessened the good time we had. Again many thanks Garry & Jacqueline and family UK.
This was our second time renting Barry's home in Cape Haze and we had a wonderful time once again. The home is beautiful, the pool and hot tub are a nice size and the lanai area is huge. It is a great place for children because of the size of the house or two families. Also, the management company took care of a problem we encounter promptly which was appreciated. Thanks Barry for letting use your home once again. Ed" Date of Arrival: Mar 10, 2013
Just wanted to drop a note to say thank you and to let you know that we had an amazing week. Your villa was wonderful and just what we needed and more to boot. It has been a very trying year for us, and this was the first Christmas we had all spent together in ten years, it couldn't have been better! Thanks for everything. We created so many happy memories in a unique place, and it has to be said that your villa was central to it all.

Our garden has many differant tropical plants and palm trees to inspect, or just sit on our Dock and enjoy the peace and tranquillity, this beautiful area has to offer.

About the owner
Hello holiday seekers, thank you for viewing our villa. Linda and I are from Oxfordshire, England. We have been coming to Florida, with our children since the early 80's. It was then, when the kids were small, that we discovered and fell in love with Florida's Gulf Coast with it's beautifully clean 'sugar sand' beaches. The clear, clean, safe, warm gulf waters and all the wonderful wildlife that is all around you to marvel at and enjoy. All this and only a few hours from Disney of the Everglades.
When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this unspoilt part of the South West Gulf Coast, which, unlike most of the Florida coast line, it is not built up. It still retains that 'old world charm' that Florida had and is now mainly lost in places like Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples. Come and see for yourselves!
Being within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve, you are privileged to see Florida's wonderful wildlife all around you. I have sat on the lanai and seen a sea eagle fly down and pick a fish out of the water just 30 feet in front of me. We have a 5 foot 'gator, who regally visits our canal and will lay on the surface, he never comes close, just watching you fish from the dock. We have hired kayaks and spent hours sailing around the reserve, fishing, crabbing and bird spotting. This is the real Florida. There is not a lot left so we feel very lucky to own part of it!
We currently live in Umbria Italy, were we are renovating a 415 year old ‘Noble manor house’ into an 8 en-suite bedroom holiday villa complex with pool, great views and lots of land. This will be in 3 apartments that can be rented separately or all together. We will be ready to take paying guests by September 2013, so if you fancy a trip to Italy and like the way we do things, let us know!
