The house is fully air-conditioned and features large rooms, a large & well-equipped kitchen, and whole house sound and wireless internet access. Multiple "smart" HD TV’s, media players, and Internet-connected Blu-Ray / DVD player throughout the home means there is always entertainment available, if desired. You’ll find most of your time will be spent hanging around the comfortable newly expanded and resurfaced lanai and pool area that is directly accessible from the main house, the kitchen, the master bedroom, and the guest wing. There is plenty of seating for everyone to enjoy the pool/lanai area, a large 14’ x 28’ heated pool, and a top-rated Infra-red BBQ gas grill to cook up your favorite steak or fish. Later in the day, you’ll find yourself marveling at the evening sky, enjoying your favorite beverage, and wondering if you’ll really be able to leave this paradise once the vacation is over.

The dock has a 7000 lbs boat lift so you can have your (owned or rented) boat easily accessible. With direct gulf access in your backyard, you will be within easy reach of local beaches and watering holes on Sanibel Island, Ft. Myers Beach, Pine Island, Captiva, Cabbage Key, Cayo Costa, etc.

A multi-source, multi-zone music system allows you to listen to different music in different areas of the house – or sync them all together to pipe your favorite tunes everywhere you go. The family room will be a favorite gathering spot with nap-inducing, super comfortable sofa, love seat, and chair.

About Dan Peterson

Our family is a serial vacation rental family. We have rented homes all over the world and felt like it was time to be the host instead. We know what a great vacation rental should feel like and aim to try to have our guests feel right at home.

Dan Peterson purchased this villa in 2015

Why Dan Peterson chose Cape Coral

Cape Coral offers a unique combination of characteristics that was attractive to us. With convenient access to the gulf and beaches via boat or car, easy airport access, and lots of fun places to visit and things to do, we found Cape Coral to be a very friendly place making it an great choice for a vacation destination home! Villa Alegria (named after my wife - Joy) was a perfect combination of size, layout, location, and quality that really appealed to us as renters. We think you'll love it too.

This home is very near its sibling home as listed on VRBO 510795 Villa Leonardo.

What makes this villa unique

The awesome patio/pool/dock area is hard to beat. You'll love sitting by the pool late in the day admiring the beautiful evening sky and perfect little breeze, while sipping on your favorite beverage. The family room is so inviting and comfortable that you can't help but relax when you are there. Finally, the space afforded by the layout and the 4 bedrooms means larger families (like ours) or group of families can come together and have a fantastic vacation experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome rental property! I would recommend it to everyone! House is very nice & decorated so cute. The whole family enjoyed the pool & lanai. The owners supply everything you need - that is not the case in most rentals so that was very nice. The house was supper clean too. The location of home is great. We've rented homes in Cape Coral before & this is the one we would rent again next time we come to the area!

Very nice, clean, spacious house.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of seven enjoyed our stay during April, 2017. The house we clean and well kept. All the amenities (paper products, shampoo, laundry detergent, pool toys, bikes, fully stocked kitchen, etc) helped to make our stay comfortable. We were thankful for access to the Apple TV, computer and laptop and enjoyed playing music on the outdoor speakers when we swam. We grilled out every day and enjoyed our dinners poolside. The owners were quick to respond with a request we had. Thanks!

Amazing Place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3+ weeks at this great home. It didn't take long to feel comfortable and Dan (the owner) made sure of that. We have rented many homes in the past but this was the most clean, well stocked, easy to use house in a great location that we have ever experienced. Lots to do in Cape Coral / Fort Myers and a safe neighborhood. Beautiful pool / outside area to spend the "Florida Weather" days around. Easy to access open water and some great canals for our boat rides. Thank you Dan for everything you offered us to enjoy our awesome vacation.

Great Home - Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

This home was really great for our winter get-away. The home is clean and well stocked. The beds are comfortable. The pool area and lanai are really great - we spent a lot of time there. The location is very convenient - we got the the beaches of Sanibel and Fort Myers beach very easily. One of the best rental home we have stayed at !

Spectacular stay

  • 5 of 5

What a great place. My family and I spent a week at this lovely home. We were completely and overly satisfied with our stay. The house was more than we expected and was extremely clean. We enjoyed our time in the pool and cooking on the grill. The house is also conveniently located to many attractions and things to do. It was extremely nice that Dan had called to make sure we had found the place okay and everything was fine. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

Oct trip with family

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful, and very clean! It had everything you could possibly need. I even bought my grandson floaties for the pool thinking there is no way they have those at the house, and guess what, we wasted money on them because they had already thought of that too! There were little frogs in the back yard my grandson had a blast catching, jumping fish we watched in the morning. Bikes and fishing rods which we took full advantage of. We took a trip to the everglades one day and took an airboat trip, and a trip to sannibel captiva another day. It was a great house close enough to everything. The beds were so comfortable and the master bedroom was gorgeous. The price was very reasonable, and cheaper than a hotel for a week for 8 of us. Would highly recommend this house. The owner was in contact with me and let me know if I needed anything to call. If you spend a lot of time in the rental when your on vacation you won't be disappointed in this one, If you don't, you'll want to!
