From the pool in our big atrium-style lanai to the lake behind the backyard, Gulf Princess is the Venice beach rental house you’ve got to get for a perfect vacation. Just 2 miles from the beach in a gated community, it’s got all the luxuries you’ll love!<br/><br/>Before you explore the interior of the house, catch your breath out by the private pool. Sparkling and inviting, it’s great for everything from water aerobics to raucous battles of Sharks and Minnows. Surrounded on three sides as well as from above by screens, it’s the perfect blend of indoors and out. Float on your back, gazing at the clouds, and you will feel the tension draining from your body. Ahhh, now you’re officially On Vacation!<br/><br/>When you can bring yourself to leave the comfort of your lounge chair or the refreshment of the pool, step indoors. You have your choice of two living areas: the big living room with new HDTV and handsome leather furnishings, or the more intimate den, which can double as a 4th bedroom since it contains a queen-sized sofa sleeper. This is ideal when part of your group wants to watch a sentimental movie while the other is determined to play poker! <br/><br/>There is room to spare at Gulf Princess, which sleeps 8 in great comfort. For instance, not only do we have a formal dining room, but also a cozy breakfast nook, which is a great place for cards and board games. Bring your electronics, too – you have free WiFi here!<br/><br/>The kitchen is bright, airy, and beautifully decorated, from the granite countertops to the tiled floor and wooden cabinets. Here you’ll find cookware, dishes, utensils, glasses, and anything else you might need to cook up a homemade feast. Or, if you’ve decided to dine out during this vacation, just use the microwave to reheat the scrumptious leftovers, the coffeemaker to get the gang up and out in the morning, and the dishwasher to do all the ugly work! Oh – and don’t forget the blender for those frozen concoctions that taste so good when sipped poolside after a busy day at the beach!<br/><br/>But the best part of Gulf Princess may just be the bedrooms, where everyone is certain to get a great night’s sleep throughout the vacation. Nothing is more important, and you’ll find each of these rooms beautifully decorated and ultra-comfortable. We provide all linens (including those for the sofa sleeper in the den), as well as towel sets for each bathroom. Pack light and count on finding everything waiting for you here!<br/><br/>The master suite is the showplace of Gulf Princess, with its king-sized bed, warm lighting, and soft carpet. His-and-her lamps let one of you stay up late finishing that mystery novel while the other snoozes obliviously. And the en-suite bathroom is palatial, with dual vanities, a garden tub, and a walk-in shower. What bliss to begin each day here!<br/><br/>The second bedroom is spacious as well, with a comfy queen-sized bed. It shares the second full bathroom with the third bedroom, which contains 2 twins. Quiet and serene, these spaces are just what the gang needs after full, busy days of sightseeing!<br/><br/>Gulf Princess has a washer and dryer for your use, as well as extra supplies of so many things you may need. Our house is quite new, spotlessly maintained, and well equipped. You’ll feel right at home here, from the big grassy lawn to the lake right in our backyard!<br/><br/>And Gulf Princess is conveniently located for all the sights of Venice, from the Brohard Paw Park to the downtown, pier, and great restaurants. Our community has a clubhouse and big heated swimming pool just a block away, so if the kids want to make some new friends in Florida, stroll down and meet the friendly neighbors! There’s always something to do here.<br/><br/>You will love your time at Gulf Princess, and we think that once you spend some time in Venice, you’ll be back the first chance you get! Come explore our Gulf paradise!
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
We enjoyed the location, pool and ambiance of this house and in fact have booked there again for Nov. 2012.We felt very comfortable in the house. The furniture in the family room and lanai was a little tired. The bar-b-que ,while functional, had some heat distribution issues. The neighbourhood was very safe and the people were friendly.
Very clean and nice property, surely not the last time I rented it.
We really enjoyed our stay and loved the house. The property manager was extremely helpful. We have no complaints.
A few issues that need to be addressed.<br/>1. Gas grill was filthy & propane tank was empty.<br/>2. Portable ironing board was not attached to wall so it couldn't be used & the iron did not work at all.<br/>3. Never got in the pool because 64 degrees was too cold for December weather & we would be fined if we turned up heat.<br/>4. Badly stained carpets in br's need replaced.
We loved the Cambridge house! Roomy, bright, private, inviting and so convienent to everything Venice has to offer! Will we be back?? You bet!
We loved the home, the view and the cleanliness and amenities provided. However, I don't think we will be staying in Venice again. We are very sociable Midwesterners and the neighborhood with the exception of a few people did not mingle. The people always waved but were very closed as far as never coming out. The people in the community consumers in stores were rude at times and seemed unwilling to smile or show any courtesy on the roads or in the sotres. I can say the employees of establishments were very cordial and helpful. I think offers very little in terms of a variety of activities for visitors. For a lengthy stay, you can only do things so many times. We found ourselves heading north to Sarasota to find leisure activities. The stay in the home was wonderful but the surrounding community is not our cup of tea for the type of active people we are and our personalities. That is why we left earlier than our contract stated. we still love during business with Steve Milo and his crew.
