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 Pelican

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

Awesome rental property! I would recommend it to everyone! House is very nice & decorated so cute. The whole family enjoyed the pool & lanai. The owners supply everything you need - that is not the case in most rentals so that was very nice. The house was supper clean too. The location of home is great. We've rented homes in Cape Coral before & this is the one we would rent again next time we come to the area!

Great multiple family home, close to beaches.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Petersons for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. Cape Coral is a perfect location, easy to get to the beaches and close enough to local stores to get supplies and eat out. The house itself had everything we needed, I overpacked. Its the little things that makes this home above other homes we've rented. We were a group of two families, 4 adults and 6 kids, ages 9-6mo, and had plenty of room. The pool was used everyday, thank goodness it was heated since the weather was not as warm. Thanks for making our Florida vacation a wonderful stay!

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Your house was beautiful and exceeded way beyond our expectations. I love that you even included toiletries and paper plates etc. How great it felt to come into our “home” for the week and only have to buy groceries. I was happy to hear from Dan on day 2, just checking in on us and he was able to respond to all of our questions rather quickly. I would love to stay here again in the future!

We rent a different place every year. This is by far the best place we've ever stayed in. Literally bring your tooth brush and clothes and groceries. Great sound system and tvs. Beautiful pool. Awesome location and the best stocked home ever.

Everything you can ask for

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the use of your lovely home. It was everything we were hoping for and then some. There was 11 adults and everyone was very comfortable. We had planned this vacation/graduation (gift) for 3 2018 grads and we must say they had a blast spending long hours in the pool and fishing off the canal. I would recommend your home and give it a 5 star. It was like our home away from home. You literally just have to bring your clothes and food to eat.
