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

Cape Coral Villa Alegria

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Beautiful home! Comfy beds and spacious floor plan! Great amenities for the rate but could have used an iron!

Tranquil mornings sitting out by the pool, lanai is a huge plus!

Home is convenient to shopping!

My family enjoyed our week in Cape Coral!

Fabulous holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Allegria is a gorgeous very well equipped vacation home. We truly appreciated all the amenities offered which went above and beyond. The home was spacious, spotless and really well laid out. The lovely salt water pool was a real hit with the whole family. Dan, the owner was extremely helpful and very quick to respond to any communications. He was very considerate even calling to check in and see if we had any questions or needed anything during our stay. We would definitely recommend this home and hope to return soon!

Great floor plan in a beautifully decorated home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four weeks at your lovely home in Cape Coral and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. The I-pad provided controlled the audio and sound system throughout the house and patio, as well as the pool functions, and lighting, and I'm not sure what else! The kitchen had everything you might need and it was such a pleasant surprise to find the paper products as well as shampoos and soaps provided. Our two boys and their families met us down there and the layout of the house - two bedrooms on each side - made for great accommodations. Having two seating areas in the living room, and TVs in the bedrooms, living room and on the patio made it nice for everyone to relax and enjoy their own space. We had many laughs playing the games that were in the home and spent lots of time walking and biking around the friendly neighbourhood with the bikes provided. The playpen and highchair were also an added benefit for us. The grandchildren "lived" in the pool and all our meals were enjoyed on the patio by the pool. Being able to lift the boat out of the water was appreciated. We hope to be back again and highly recommend this home to anyone who might be travelling to the Cape Coral area. It is close to lots of beaches, shopping, and other entertainment. Thanks, Dan, for making our holiday such a memorable vacation.
