I love the Venice / Sarasota area and all that it has to offer. We reside next door so you will always rest assured your vacation home will be in top notch condition. I take great pride in offering the finest vacation home in the area.

Location, amazing bayfront views, private pool and boat dock, privacy from neighbors, large house with fantastic floor plan.
Bayfront with private boat / fishing dock. Amazing waterfront views.
My family and I rented this home last June and it was PERFECT! Loved the location, clean, well kept, owner was available if we needed anything. Gorgeous property, Bay-Front and the pool was a hit with the kiddos! Plenty of room for hanging outside/poolside and a table for outside eatery. Great views. Large open floor plan. We will definitely go back again!
The owner for this property is extremely helpful and honest. I use a wheelchair and have a hard time finding vacation homes that work for me. I prefer homes to crowded condo complexes or hotels but most aren't accessible. When I book a vacation I am always sure to indicate that I am in a wheelchair and require doorways that have adequate room to maneuver my chair. I have had many negative vacation experiences because people think because a home is one level it is wheelchair accessible which is not the case. I have even arrived at homes where the doorways are too narrow for me to even get into the bathroom! This home is quite lovely and the view is gorgeous so I was hoping to rent this house. I contacted the owner and instead of saying that it would work (as so many others do) he went into the home and inspected it through the eyes of someone that uses a wheelchair and even took additional pictures of the bathroom for me. Unfortunately it will not work for me but if so I would be booking immediately. I have never experienced such timeliness of response or honesty from an owner, most are more concerned with lining their pocketbooks rather than seeing to the comfort of their guests. I truly appreciate the personal care and helpfulness that I received.
A friend and I spent Thanksgiving week in this fabulous property. Unlike a lot of rentals, it is well stocked with toilet paper, hangers, plastic containers for leftovers, pots, pans and dishes. We hosted Thanksgiving dinner for 12 in this lovely setting and did not need a thing. The owner is extremely helpful without being invasive. I highly recommend this property.
We had a great time enjoying the weather in your beautiful home. I wish we could have stayed longer because we spent so much time enjoying the house and pier I would have liked to spend some at the beach as well. Hopefully we will get to spend some more time here next year.
Lovely waterfront property! We stayed for a week. Kids enjoyed the pool, we all enjoyed Venice Beach and Sarasota. Highly recommend it for a family vacation. Thank you again for letting us enjoy your home!
We spent a month at this lovely home. The view of Dona Bay was great. If you are looking for a place close to everything in Sarasota or Venice this is the place. This home is very clean and very comfortable. The owner lives next door and is happy to be very helpful if you need anything. I would come back next year.
Located about 1.5 miles from both Venice Beach and Nokomis Beach. Only 10 miles to Sarasota and 60 miles to Tampa and 120 miles to Orlando. Make a side trip to Busch Gardens, Tampa and of course, Disney in Orlando. Or just relax at our fine beaches, play golf and tennis year round, many fine restaurants and local activities.
