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.

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!

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 villa in 2015

Why Doug and Andrea Wegner chose Cape Coral

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 villa 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.

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.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first blended family vacation. We were looking for someplace with lots of space with the ability to all be together while having room to spread around if needed. Villa Lagoon provided us with all that and more. Beautiful screened in lanai with peaceful fireplace and pool area was one of our favorite places to relax and unwind. Doug and Andrea have provided an incredible place to relax with lots of room to spread around. The kitchen was very well equipped with anything you could possibly need. We also rented the boat and thoroughly enjoyed cruising up and down the canals as well as in the manatee refuge area. The kids loved seeing the dolphins and manatees so close. Ivo, their property manager, was very gracious and knowledgeable. He was quick to respond with questions we had or suggestions for places to see while there. Thank you for such incredible memories! The kids can't wait for our next family trip. It will be difficult to match never mind top the Villa!! Highly recommended!!!!!

Simply Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent home renters, and we were drawn to this property for our family vacation. The pictures just don't do it justice- the pool area is amazing every time of the day, unbelievable with the torches lit. It felt very private and relaxing and yet was extremely fun for our little ones. Ivo, property manager, was the kindest person to meet and so helpful. He was genuinely interested in our comfort.

It was the best stocked kitchen I've experienced so far. We mainly used the plastic ware as we ate every meal outside. Every single meal! Probably best anyway with white chair coverings inside!! Because we had 4 year olds, we didn't use the dining room or piano area at all.

We really felt at home.We used the beach chairs and towels on every beach adventure. There were plenty of pool toys and chairs outside. Fishing poles were available for the peaceful canal out back. The washer and dryer were convenient so we packed lightly and did laundry. Kudos to the owners for such a beautiful home and for being so generous with the details for everyone to enjoy.

The only negative (not to anyone's fault) is that you are FAR from the beaches and activities. About an hour to Fort Myers Beach. That could be good and bad! We rented a pontoon boat in Fort Myers and one in Naples which was incredible. Just under 2 hours to the Everglades as well. In my opinion the peace is worth the drive.

The grocery store is less than 10 minutes away but there are really no restaurants or other signs of commercialism nearby. Floating in the pool at night allows you to see the sky full of stars. We would rent this home again in a heartbeat.

It's such a pleasure to have exceptional guests staying at our home.

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.
