6 Months at the BEST location in Venice!!!
My family and I (wife and 4 young kids) rented this Fantastic House on Pedro St. for 6 months because I had a work contract in Venice. This home was excellent and the Owner was by far the easiest person I have ever rented from -- Contract terms were very simple, he was quick to communicate, more than fair on the utilities, attentive to issues, generous, and trusting of us as renters. There was integrity throughout our dealings with the owner. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RENTAL.
The house has a unique floor plan, but was a total joy to live in. It is decorated in a very refreshing Ikea style. Hardwood floors and Tile, lots of windows -- Sunshine! We came to this house with duffle bags, and some essential kid stuff (bikes, etc.), and had everything we needed for a family of 6 for an extended period - including towels and the BBQ grille. The Pool was excellent - and worked out very well even with small kids, because it has a tall fence around it (of course we had strict rules about life-jackets and supervision).
We are a HomeSchool family, and everyone thought we were on vacation for 6 months!!! My wife used the Pool almost daily -- all our kids swim exceptional now. She walked or biked with the kids to the beach at least twice a week (1/2 a mile) -- they even got involved with the Sea Turtle Rescue Program. The public library is a few blocks away, which was really valuable to us. The downtown area is two blocks away and has a great choice of restaurants and shops -- my kids loved the fudge shop, toy stores, and the splash park. It was the perfect setting (inside or outside the house) for the kids to do schooling or for the adults to read a book and relax.
Downtown Venice often has activities going on (art shows, classic cars, Sun Fiesta, etc.). I personally went SCUBA diving off the beach 8 different times and found hundreds of Shark's teeth. We loved our location and the neighbors were Great!
I can't say enough about how perfectly ideal this rental was for us. The listing was accurate. The property was clean, fresh, and appealing. The owner was superb. WE LOVED IT!!! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY!!!
