Beautiful, stylish, spacious and extremely clean!

  • 5 of 5
This property was exceptional and as frequent renters in Florida, the best we have stayed in. The prettiest house on Flamingo, we had use of every amenity - every thought had gone into what holiday makers would need from new bikes, cool boxes/bags, linen, towels etc. The outside of the property was also exceptionally clean and well maintained and made our leisurely sunbathing sessions even more relaxing, especially the lovely pool. I cannot recommend highly enough this outstanding rental - if you don't take advantage of it on your next holiday - its your loss!!

PERFECT VACATION HOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed there with my handicapped mom, 16yr old son and our two little dogs. The property was immaculate, the pool was cleaned every week and the lawn was mowed frequently. The house was perfect for all of us! My son and I especially liked the private beach via the ferry. Glenn and Bonye were great and really helpful with all the arrangements.
I have no negatives to say at all - I would recommend this home to anyone without hesitation!

  • 5 of 5
The was a wonderful house. We enjoyed staying here. We would return in a heartbeat. The house was immaculate and very well decorated with a beach theme. Wonderful private pool that is maintained every week. Close to shopping and dining. Owners were very nice. I would recommend this property to anyone without reservation.

Everything we could hope for!

  • 5 of 5
The house was just as listed, but even better! What a great home... everything was impeccably clean, well maintained, and beautifully decorated. So many little extras that you don't typically find in rental homes... beach chairs, coolers and even kitchen and laundry soap. The pool and screened patio was most enjoyable, we wish we were back again! Our beagle had a wonderful time laying in the sun, and a blast at the dog beach! Venice is a delightful area... we especially loved the gorgeous beach and the ferry ride, downtown Venice and the Rookery. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, many restaurants have outside dining and some offer doggie dinners. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner and our refund was almost immediate. We look forward to visiting again some day! Thanks Glenn!

What a great stay. Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5
This place is even better in person than in pictures. Glenn and Bonnye have paid great attention to every detail, and everything is unbelievably well maintained. My one minor problem was resolved quickly and without effort and gladly by Glenn. Even though you are in a quiet area and just minutes to several beaches you are still close to all your shopping needs and restaurants. While you stay here, make sure to check out ABC liquor for great deals on wine and booze, Cedar Creek restaurant where you can eat fresh fish for 2 with wine for under $50 and for your Canine friends Brohard Paw Park beach and Woodmere Dog Park. At the Dome flea market get onto Capt Paul's email list for his fresh catch that arrives every Friday morning. I hope this doesn't sound like an ad, but I want the next visitors to enjoy their stay as much as we did!

Very, very well maintained home.

  • 5 of 5
This home was like staying at our home. The pool was wonderful. All the amenities and accessories were there right down to the bikes and beach chairs. There's a shopping plaza about 2 miles away with restaurants, banks and shops. There's also a Walmart and pharmacy across from the shopping plaza on US41and Jacaranda. If you like seafood try the Cedar Reef Fish Camp. The beaches are very close by and the quaint downtown of Venice is 5 miles away. I would definitely stay there again. The owners are great.

Crossing one of Venice's bridges to the historic downtown area, known as 'The Island of Venice', instantly transports you to a place of unparalleled charm where palm tree lined avenues host an endless choice of exciting things to do and see. You’re sure to find a shop or boutique to satisfy your style out of the 100+ unique shops, salons, and other businesses along the Island Avenues of Venice. If dining is your idea of excitement, your palate will be especially pleased. With many sidewalk cafes and several picturesque waterfront restaurants.

We are located 15 minutes from Venice Island. Just a short drive or Bike Ride to the best beaches on the Gulf Coast and just around the corner from grocery stores and other major shopping. Abundant public Golf Courses to choose from. Huge Dog park with Beach to enjoy leash free with your pet.
