Janet and Chris, with their three kids and Golden Doodle puppy, live in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. The picture above shows Janet and the kids on a dolphin cruise off Manasota Key this summer... lots of dolphins!!

With a relatively young family (kids are 13, 12 and 9), Janet and Chris are frequently found on any number of soccer, softball and/or football fields as well as drama and musical production venues, supporting their kids' passion for sports, teamwork, and the Arts.

While Janet and Chris both earned their undergraduate degrees in the Northeast, they didn't meet until their late 20s after career excursions to LA, NY and DC for Janet and global travels with the US Navy for Chris. Currently, Janet runs a family business and Chris works in the engineering field outside of Boston.

Janet Ceddia purchased this house in 2010

We found our 'Vienna' Paradise home in the search for a family vacation spot that could handle large and small gatherings of friends and family - and give us a retirement dream-home to enjoy long before we actually retired. The open feel of the villa-style home's floor plan, combined with its high-end amenities and quiet setting on Manasota Key, immediately gave them the feel of a beach home escape without any of the worries of being directly on the ocean. The 'Vienna' reference is to Janet's favorite Billy Joel song... check it out.... This place is ALL ABOUT SLOWING DOWN.

The 'old world' Florida ambiance of Manasota Key makes this a true oasis from the hustle and bustle of suburban life back home. We lose ourselves in days filled with going from the pool to the beach and back to the pool again. And, we love that water sports are five minutes away and day-trip options abound with outings to water parks, zoos, semi-pro ball parks, and museums - not to mention lots of cultural arts activities in Sarasota, Venice and Englewood.

HIDDEN GEM

  • 5 of 5
I have to start with how amazing Janet (owner) was in keeping contact with us, answering all our questions, she made the whole experience secure and pleasant! The house is just beautiful, lots of room, great amenities like a fully stocked kitchen, and the private beach is wonderful. Olde Englewood town is cute, we ate at Zeke's 2 evenings and enjoyed good food overlooking the bay with boats and dolphins! 1 night we ordered in pizza from Bobarinos and it was delicious! We also tried out a delicious ice cream place "A great scoop" i think it was called. The beach was so close and safe we let the older kids go bk and forth. They had all the pool toys and beach toys/gear you could possibly want! We loved every minute of coffee on the enclosed back porch while the kids swam, watching the waves and sunset on the beach, and the lush vegetation all over. Highly recommend after a disney crazy week to wind down and relax at the beach with a big group of kids/grandparents like we had!!

SIMPLY GORGEOUS

  • 5 of 5
Based on the pictures my family had high expectations for this home. We were not disappointed. The house is simply gorgeous. There were 6 adults and 3 children ( ages 1,6 & 8) and we had more than enough room. The layout is very open and family friendly. It's hard to identify our favorite part of the house, but if I had to pick, it would be the kitchen. We cooked most of our dinners and the kitchen was wonderful to work in. All necessary applicances were provided. We just had to hit the local Publix to supply the food. It's a very short walk to the beach which is beautiful. We had some minor issues with the house ( ceiling fan making noise, dishwasher not working) but they were handled quickly by the local property mgmt group. From start to finish this rental was smooth and professional. Without question my family would stay at this property again. Some additional positive feedback. The pool is wonderful and the screened in porch overlooking the pool is a nice touch. The owner supplies a good amount of pool toys and beach toys to help enjoy your stay. One of our favorite parts of the trip was taking the Lemon Bay Tours nature tour which is a short drive down Beach Rd. Too many dolphin sightings to count and a manatee sighting as well. Well worth the money if you're looking for a relaxing morning.

RELAXING, BEAUTIFUL, ELEGANT LARGE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this home for one week in May. The photos reflect the home perfectly. It was very clean and well maintained. Only a short path to the ocean, that was literally a private beach. We saw dolphins swimming. We saw little crabs on the sand. Lots of shells and sharks teeth. The pool was screened in. So clean, no bugs. The kitchen was fully equipped and we made most of our meals in, which saved lots of time and money. The back porch, also screened in faced a beautiful orange flowering bush. This was our favorite place to sit and read and relax. About 2 1/2 hours to Disney, if you go the Venice way. We ate dinner at Howards one night and the fresh seafood was excellent. The owner was so nice to work with and the local Realtor also very accommodating. The neighborhood felt very safe. It was quiet and just lovely. We will definitely stay again as soon as we are able.

SPECTACULAR HOUSE & POOL!

Spectacular House & Pool!
  • 5 of 5
I was lucky enough to stay at this beautiful home for a week in April 2013, along with 3 other women and kids ranging in ages from 3 to 13. There were a total of 12 of us and the house could easily accommodate a few more people. The house itself is beautiful, exactly like the photos. It is extremely clean and well-furnished. There are big sofas on each floor so people can gather in the common rooms, but the bedrooms are also very pleasant if you want to take some space. It's elegant [note the marble] but definitely comfortable for families with kids. The kitchen was great - we stayed in most nights and there was plenty of space for both cooking and dining. There is a screened-in pool and porch connected to the house [no bugs!], and when the kids wanted something different we would traipse down the road to the private beach. The beach was fabulous, with clear water, gentle waves and tons of shells. I walked it one morning and it was peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend this property - you'll truly appreciate it!

FRENCH CANADIAN

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at this property for a week in March /2013. Upon arrival, we were overwhelmed by the size of the property, how clean and well maintained it was kept, We had seen pictures of the house beforehand but it was much more than we had ever imagined. There was a big garage attached to the house which was very convenience at night when coming in late. The interior of the house was spacious and very well decorated and each bedroom had their own private bath which was another plus in my book. The kitchen was large and well equipped with the latest modern appliances, even a barbecue at our disposal. It also contained a heated pool which also included all the outside furniture needed. The property was within walking distance of a private beach. I would sincerely recommend this property rental to anyone. We hope one day to be able to return. Englewood is a very quiet and respected place. It has many restaurants, gift shops, stores and activities to keep any family interested. The owners are very easy to deal with and always willing to accomadate.

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our vacation because the house had everything we needed. It's a beautiful home that is clean, spacious, and inviting. The kitchen had everything we needed to make great meals for my family, the beds were very comfortable, and the it was so convenient to have access to a washer and dryer. We loved the pool, and the beach was absolutely beautiful. I would rent this house over and over again!

Any stay at our 'Vienna' Paradise home must include: hunting for shells and sharks teeth along the sandy beach; daily bike rides along the quaint Manasota Key Road's canopied roadway; beach yoga at Englewood Beach; jet skiing and sunset cruising with Beach Road Rentals; swimming with dolphins in the Gulf; and participating in any number of cultural and social events such as fishing tournaments, boat races and regattas. Other annual celebrations include an Art Guild Show, Seafood Festival, July Beach Bash with Fireworks, as well as the annual Turtle Watch when Sea Turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand.

Manasota Key is largely undiscovered and quite spectacular to explore. Stump Pass state park is just a five to ten minute bike ride away on the southern tip of Manasota Key. Secluded jungle trails and hidden coves will transport you back in time. Restaurants and shopping are located within a 15 minute drive where you will also find golf, tennis, cinemas, and even a small amusement park for the kids. Further to the north are the lovely cities of Venice and Sarasota with the Ringling Museum of Art, Mote Marine Aquarium, many fine restaurants, and live theater productions. Be as active or as relaxed as you like in this little bit of paradise on the Florida Gulf Coast! Only a two hour drive from Orlando and just over an hour from Tampa.
