Across the canal, your 'backyard' is the Matlacha Wildlife Preserve. You will not be looking across the canal at other homes, instead you'll be looking at Florida as it was decades ago; beautiful, natural and abundant in bird life. You will enjoy breathtaking sunsets every night from the privacy of your pool and outdoor living room. Enjoy an evening of total relaxation in front of the outdoor fireplace.

The living room offers a 45' LCD/HD flat-screen TV with home theater surround sound, a DVD player and stereo system with exterior speakers for outside music enjoyment. The cozy den is a perfect place to curl up with a book, or use the wireless high-speed internet service to surf the web on your laptop. You can even enjoy the piano for added entertainment. There is a separate formal dining room for those special evenings dinners. The fully equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar and dining area which also has a view of the pool area and beautiful nature preserves of Matlacha.

This is a 4 bedroom and 3 bath home that sleeps 8 people comfortably. Three bedrooms and two baths are located on the south side of the house, and the master bedroom is on the opposite side. Master bedroom provides views and access to the patio/pool area, and it's own private bathroom suite, and walk-in closet. All bedrooms are equipped with televisions.

It offers an outdoor kitchen with built-in grill, mini refrigerator, wet bar, and a beautiful heated pool to relax or swim laps in. The outdoor 'living room' area offers a gas-burning fireplace and is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine on those cooler Florida nights.

The private dock also provides for extra seating. It contains a patio table, chairs, umbrella. There's plenty of room to enjoy fishing right off the dock. There's also a convenient fish cleaning station provided to assist in preparing your fabulous catch of the day!

We also have a high chair and a pack-n-play (playpen/sleeper) for infants.

About Doug and Andrea Wegner

Doug and Andrea are the proud owners of this beautiful villa home which they recently purchased in February 2015. They both have been traveling to Florida for many years. They enjoy swimming, boating and most of all fishing! Currently, they reside in a suburb outside of Chicago, where they are raising their teen-aged son, who is also a fishing enthusiast, and would like to become a fishing guide one day (when he's not playing professional baseball ~ his dream)! They have lived in Illinois all of their lives. Their dream is to retire in the sunshine state some day in the near future.

Doug and Andrea Wegner purchased this house in 2015

Why Doug and Andrea Wegner chose Burnt Store

Our first time in Cape Coral was while vacationing over the holidays in 2014-2015. We fell in love with the area immediately. Not far from Sanibel Island, Ft. Meyers, Captiva and Pine Islands, Cape Coral and the Matlacha area provided us with the perfect location. The home is nestled in the privacy of the Matlacha Wildlife Preserve, yet close enough to all the amenities that a tropical paradise has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The home itself, location, the backyard views, the outdoor "living room" lanai/pool area ~ day or night, the amazing sunsets, the privacy, the nature preserve, and the hot fishing locations.

Beautiful home for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay. The neighborhood is quiet, very little traffic past the house. Only five minutes from gas station and less than ten minutes from Publix and several restaurants. Pool area is fantastic, very nice to have an actual deep end to the pool. Furniture outside is very comfortable, dock is great in the evenings as well. Fishing gear is in the garage, kids loved fishing off the dock. We saw manatee and dolphins off the dock. Owners were very helpful with recommendations for restaurants in Cape Coral, all were very good. Beds were comfortable, plenty of towels, kitchen well stocked with dishes and cutlery. BBQ on pool deck was great for grilling. There were several movies and board games/puzzles which helped passed the couple of rainy days we had. We will definitely be back next year!

It was nice, several maintenance issues.

  • 3 of 5

We found at night there was a palmetto bug issue. The bugs were inside the master bathroom and laundry room. The ice maker was a solid frozen mass, my husband was able to thaw and repair. The pool heater was off and to cold to swim was able to turn on circuit breaker. Blinds did not work in back bedroom, they would not close. TV on lani did not work. The place was clean, the fruit bowl, flowers, beer and wine was a wonderful touch. The property manager was informed of the above.

If the above issues are addressed, I would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the information. All of your issues have or had been addressed. Serveral problems were hurricane related (ice maker due to loss of electricity for quite some time). Ice maker should have been checked into by our property manager after power was restored. I suppose it wasn't top priority on his checklist. We've never experienced a "bug" issue before. I'm guessing due to all that water accompanied by that hurricane. Even though we had no water damage what-so-ever, thankfully, perhaps these palmetto bugs were stirred up a bit. I hear that they can come up through the pipes in the bathrooms. There was nothing wrong with the television on the lanai..that one television only gets local channels. Pool heater always remains off until a guest requests it to be turned on via our property manager prior to their arrival. The broken blinds have been replaced. I am not sure why the blinds were an issue in the back bedroom, seeing that only two people were staying at our villa under this reservation. (?). It is a four bedroom home. We do appreciate the feedback. Thank you.

All we were hoping for

  • 5 of 5

We were two families of four, looking for a comfortable villa to use as a base to explore a different part of Florida, and this was exactly what we got. In fact, the villa was so comfortable and well equipped, both indoors and out, that we actually spent most of our time there, although we did manage a boat trip from Cape Coral and some sunset kayaking. The villa felt like a home from home, and I can't think of anything we felt it was missing; we spent most of out time outdoors in the lanai either using the pool or fishing off the dock (with the equipiment left for guests in the garage), and we even saw a dolphin!

Booking through Home and Away was easy and straightforward and the communication from Doug and Andrea was excellent both before and after our stay - we really felt they wanted us to enjoy the villa and our trip. We would definately recommend a trip to this part of Florida and a stay in Villa Lagoon.

Perfect quiet family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. Perfectly appointed and exactly as shown in the photos. Had a great time fishing in the canal (caught a sting ray) and saw dophines in the canal and lots of wildlife across the canal. We spent the majority of our time in the lanai and pool. Ivo, the property manager, was super helpful with some house issues we had during our stay.

If you want pure relaxation, this is it.

A Little Piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely stunning palatial home! Our stay was so quiet and peaceful. Exactly what a holiday should be The villa was well appointed and wanting for nothing. The outdoor lanai is just beautiful and where we spent many hours. The canal did not disappoint with sightings of manatee, stingrays and a dolphin and even the preserve offered up a couple of wild pigs.

The true gem of this property tho is Ivo, the property manager! What a lovely gentleman He was friendly and accommodating and quick to fix a couple of minor problems we encountered. He truly made us feel that we were welcome company and not renters

We would recommend this property highly to anybody looking for a restful get away from the hurly burly of life!

Sunsets, Fireplace, Manatees!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this Villa. The house was very nice but the outdoor lanai was the best. The beautiful view and sunsets were amazing and just what we were looking for. We loved the outdoor kitchen with grill and sitting area with fireplace. The owner was great to work with and answered any question we had both before the trip and during in record time. We had a little issue with ants when we first arrived but the owner and property manager were quick to jump on it and take care of the problem. We enjoyed exploring Cape Coral and you can see from the construction that it is growing fast. Great area and close to Fort Meyer and Sanibel Island. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a quiet place to get away.

Property is located in NW region of Cape Coral.

Tiny Matlacha forms a bridge from the mainland to Pine Island, which, like Sanibel and Captiva Islands, has only stop signs and courtesy to organize the flow of traffic. Matlacha occupies it's own small island with a abundance of colorful shops and galleries, seafood markets, colorful waterside restaurants, and a community park that fronts Matlacha Pass, part of the Great Calusa Blueway paddling trail. In Cape Coral one can enjoy nature cruises, kayaking, boating, nearby beaches, dolphin and manatee encounters, not to mention the many fishing hot spots.
