About this rental
Villa Alegría has been carefully prepared to have your whole family relaxed and in vacation mode as soon as you walk in the door. Beautiful landscaping sets the stage for a perfectly laid out floor plan set up with everything you need for a great vacation for even the largest group. With plenty of space for everyone and a sunny pool & lanai & boat dock, you’re sure to quickly leave your regular worries in the past. Think of it as your own private tropical resort.
If your dates are not available or if have an extra large group, I have another 4 bedroom home Villa Leonardo
- /13300/. These sibling homes are near each other and have almost identical setups and amenities.
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.
The kitchen has provisions to make meal preparation a snap and your meals can be served in the kitchen dining area, the kitchen bar area, the pool area sitting table or all three. 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. A large UltraHD TV in the center of the entertainment center will provide great viewing of a rented movie, the big game, Airplay-sourced pictures of your vacation, or your favorite TV show. Or hang out in the separate sitting area to engage a quiet conversation or to read your favorite book.
When the day is done, you’ll find 4 very comfortable bedrooms that will allow you to rest and recharge, as needed. The master suite, separated on one side of the house for privacy, provides spacious living area, king-sized bed, HD TV, a personal music system, a walk-in closets, and step-in bathtub, and a large walk-in tiled shower stall, and direct access to the pool area. There are 2 other bedrooms are located on the other side of the house. The 1st bedroom has a full bed and a twin bed, an HD TV, and a walk-in closet. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and a twin bed, an HD TV, and a walk-in closet. These share a bathroom with shower and direct access to the pool. The 4th bedroom is a separate queen bedroom with large closet w/ built-ins and desk/computer area. Finally, we have a queen sleeper sofa is additional beds are needed.
Don’t miss out on this spectacular home and capture a little bit of paradise!

The home is set up with multiple exterior security cameras pointed at key entry points. There are motion detectors but no cameras in the home. The cameras are set up to minimize any intrusion on privacy of the guest staying at the house and are meant to deter any criminal entry into the house. Contact the owner if this is a concern.
The private setting on the 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.
Why Kids Love It
Pool is the highlight for families with kids. But there is a great mini-golf course nearby as well. Fishing off the dock and visiting the local beaches are also key highlights.
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! See the manatees and dolphins up close in your rented kayak at Lover's Key. Great fun at the beaches of Sanibel Island and Fort Myers Beach. Lots of great golf courses just minutes away. Villa Leonardo (named after my dad) was a perfect combination of size, layout, location, and quality that really appealed to us as renters. We think you'll love it too.
Favorite Places To Eat

- Lobster Lady
- 2 Meatballs
- Fresh Catch Bistro - at Fort Myers Beach but worth the drive
- Cork Soakers
- Mexico Lindo

Wonderful home in Cape Coral
This is an excellent rental home. Very clean and very well stocked kitchen with dishes, pots & pans, as well as products like storage bags, paper towels, etc. There was shampoo, body wash, and conditioner in both bathrooms. Lots of towels including beach towels. In fact, I've rented several vacation homes and this one had the most supplies of any. Pool was clean and warm. Excellent & comfortable bedrooms. Being able to use the boat lift was a real plus!! I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone.
