We enjoyed the quiet location, which had a very private backyard. The pool was in good condition. The house was in good condition and everything we needed for our stay was available in the house. The owners were very friendly and responded immediately to any questions. The house is a five-minute drive from Manasota Beach, and we found many fossilized shark teeth while on vacation, along with several shells. We also saw dolphins at the beach. We enjoyed an afternoon of shopping in downtown Venice for souvenirs and clothing. We saw manatees at the South Jetty. We would recommend this rental to anyone, and we would not hesitate to rent the same vacation property again.
