A big house for a big group, this gorgeous Venice island paradise beach retreat is an ideal base for your next family gathering or special celebration. Up to fourteen guests will sleep comfortably in 4 bedrooms and spend days in the private heated pool or at the nearby beach. Taste the Venice island life at 301 Harbor Drive South. <br/><br/>Located on the island of Venice and only 3 blocks to the town center, the home boasts many features that increase your sense of overall privacy and security. Lush landscaping makes a gorgeous backdrop and disguises the fenced backyard. Parents of small children can teach their kids to swim, yet relax knowing that the pool is properly fenced. Live life coastal-style outdoors, in the screened lanai under palm trees-a-plenty. An outside dining table and ample sun beds keep the party outside. <br/><br/>Indoors, a huge selection of new living room furniture suits a big group. Two large microsuede sofas and a further two over-sized arm chairs are comfy places to gather for a movie or ball game. An overhead ceiling fan keeps things cool. <br/><br/>Wrought iron tables and tiled floors underfoot leave things open and breezy, just as a vacation house should be. Control the sunlight from the large window with vertical blinds. <br/><br/>While your family or group entertains diverse interests, others can play or chat in the nearby family room. Styled in cafe chic, a small table and higher bar table sit atop a brick floor. Bring favorite board games or a pack of cards and play all night. <br/><br/>When bed time rolls around, the master bedroom accommodates a family in this separate suite. Much like a large hotel room, parents with young children can comfortably fit in the room’s two queen beds and queen-sized sofa bed. <br/><br/>The home’s second guest bedroom will keep the grandparents or another couple happy. Spoiled with massive king bed and TV, the room’s occupants will love its cheery ambiance - floral prints and palm tree motifs dot the comforter, accents and wicker furniture. A dresser is included for easy organization. <br/><br/>Bedrooms three and four boast bright accommodation with two twin beds and a queen, respectively. Both have new and ample storage furniture, large windows and ceiling fans. Your guests’ comfort is absolutely assured. <br/><br/>When searching for local entertainment, it’s only 3 blocks to both the beach and charming downtown Venice. Head to the beach each night for a stunning sunset, followed by a fresh seafood dinner at popular Sharkey’s restaurant, then ice cream downtown. <br/><br/>Wireless Internet makes this home as convenient as it is lovely. Two full bathrooms are clean and bright, with high-quality finishings. One bathroom is handicapped accessible while the other has a bathtub, an ideal option for parents with small children and a flotilla of rubber ducks.
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 stayed in this house in January with our two dogs and both sets of our parents (four senior citizens). The home was spacious, open, airy, bright, and very accessible for everyone - one of the bathrooms even had grab bars and a bench in the walkin shower, which was perfect for my mother who has problems with her legs and her balance. The furniture was very comfortable and perfect for relaxing after an afternoon at the beach or walking around the shopping district, just three blocks away (the beach was six blocks away, lots of places to drive and park for easy beach access). There were some maintenance / upkeep issues that keep me from scoring all five stars (ie torn screens, a stain on one rug, and broken blinds), but these weren't big deals so we didn't bother calling the propery manager to report them. For people traveling with dogs, this house has a fully fenced in back yard that is accessible through several doors, makes it very easy to let your dogs in and out, and there are so many large windows that you can essily keep an eye on your pets while they run around the yard. The house even provides a baby/security fence that can go around the pool if you want to keep the large glass lanai doors open and don't want to worry about your dogs potentially falling in thr pool. Overall, very nice home that met our vacation needs (if it were beach front, it would have been absolutely perfect, but we knew it wasn't located on the beach when we booked it). We would stay here again.
This was our third time renting from Vacation Rental Pros and the best yet. The fully fenced back yard was a safe place for our dogs to enjoy, the pool was clean and well maintained. A little attention to the gardens would help to make the property more enjoyable. The house itself was well stocked with linens, kitchen tools, TVs and board games. Overall very comfortable, except for the couch in the family room. We had one problem with a backed-up drain in the kitchen, but the property manager, Keven Connelly arranged for a plumber and the matter was resolved to our complete satisfaction. Highly recommend Vacation Rental Pros to all my friends and family. See you again next year.
Four Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Swimming Pool with screened area...can't get much better!
Based on the fact that a number of people obviously stay at this property, Extra cleaning of comforters and furniture would be advised. The pool was clean but a little cool to use. And on the positive side, we had problems with the shower drain in one of the bathrooms and they came to fix it immediately. That was a very nice suprise.
Wonderful Florida stay. Home and property were spotless. Management was polite and courteous. Would recommend vacationrentalpros to anyone planning a florida getaway
Everything was perfect. Just walk in the door and your home! Great location, walk to town, fenced yard for dogs, decorating very nice, and management team A+. Property manager (Kevin) extremely helpful and all people we talked to were great to work with.<br/> We had been to Venice many times but never stayed more than a couple days at a time. Would and have recommended VR pros! Oh!! Don't forget the caged heated pool! Home on Harbor Blvd is just a very short distance to Venice beaches and Sharky's pier and restaurant<br/> or the Jetty. Perfect location for many things to do. Wish we had known about VR Pros years ago. Wonderful value. Many good plaaces to eat close by. This was a wonderful home away from home. Don't miss Casperson beach (Shark tooth beach),hours of fun looking<br/> for shark teeth. There was one bedroom that did not cool well so we put our daughter who is always cold there and she was in hog heaven! You will not be disappointed!!!!! Steve, you have put together a wonderful team. Thanks, Stan swango
