Our family spent 2 weeks enjoying this beautiful home. The layout was perfect for our visit and the owners had all the extras needed for our grandchild. The neighborhood is very peaceful yet close to everything. (Try Cassariano Italian Eatery in Venice for a delicious meal.) We loved having our coffee on the lanai each morning and watching the golf course activity. We look forward to coming back to stay in the future!
