4 bedroom, 3 bath, pool, boat (optional), boat lift, dock, pool bar, outdoor living room with fireplace, 6 flat-screen televisions, indoor/outdoor music system, and more. Villa Lagoon is Florida at its best! Sophisticated and stylish, this gorgeous home has it all. It's truly "home away from home." The kitchen has all the extras that you'll possibly need to make your stay most enjoyable and convenient. Newly decorated in a contemporary look with a tropical flair, the home is located on the 'Spreader' canal, which is the large canal that runs along the western perimeter of Cape Coral. 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. Prepare dinner in your outdoor kitchen complete with top of the line appliances and granite counter tops.

The large open floor plan with the vaulted ceilings and ceiling fans provide a open and airy feeling. 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.

The outside screened-in lanai area is a perfect place to entertain day or night. 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!

Please note: Boat is available for rent under separate rental agreement and price. Please "view all rental rates" under rate tab.

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 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.

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.

Beautiful, spacious villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from a wonderful week in this beautiful villa.

It really is situated in an amazing place of natural beauty and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck, morning and evening, nature watching. We were lucky enough to see manatees, dolphins, osprey, kingfishers, herons, warblers etc. plus we heard the pigs!

The villa itself is very spacious and extremely well and generously equipped with everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday.

The villa manager who lives locally was very courteous and helpful.

We highly recommend staying at Villa Lagoon.

Spectacular villa!!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I just spent a week at Villa Lagoon and I have to say, it was absolutely perfect!! The villa itself is gorgeous and pristine, with crispy sheets, fluffy towels and comfy furniture. There are TV's everywhere, which was great! We didn't even have to touch the AC controls even once because the temperature always seemed to be exactly what it was supposed to be. The kitchen has everything you need, including a blender (for pina coladas!) and I even found one of those mallets that you flatten chicken with! lol There are plastic cups (nice ones!) and plastic bowls and dishes which, by the pool, are a very smart idea!

And the pool, ohhh the pool! It's ice blue and sparkling, at just the right temperature. At night, it's like being in a giant, warm, bath tub--sooo relaxing. We could hear the fish jumping at night in the canal and we heard what must've been a couple of manatees exhaling as they surfaced. With Matlacha right across the canal, there was an endless chorus of toads and froggies singing their hearts out most of the time, which was wonderful! We saw a lot of huge sea birds flying by and sitting in the trees across the way. If you turn on the fish light attached to the dock, at night, you see all kinds of fish--those ones with the whiskers (catfish?) were so cute! It was very quiet and peaceful, both daytime and nighttime, so if you just want to chill-out and appreciate Mother Nature, this is the place. I have to also mention the sunsets. Ohmygosh. Except for one day when it rained, every evening there was a magnificent sunset--pink, yellow, orange, red, purple, blue--sometimes with lightning interspersed with the colors. We've all seen sunsets, of course, but there's something about Florida's sunsets that make them unique.

The property manager, Ivo, was friendly, charming and answered all of our questions with a smile. Finally, Andrea Wegner was an absolute delight! She's so warm and welcoming, you'll feel like a long-lost family member! She answered all of my questions via email prior to our arrival and would respond very quickly and with a lot of thoughtful information, which was extremely helpful. I cannot praise her enough--she's a doll!

If I could give Villa Lagoon 10 stars, I would! If you're looking for the perfect villa, in a perfect setting, where you can forget about the rest of the world and just relax in the lap of luxury, this is it!!
