About Mike Gervase

Here I am enjoying the afternoon with 4 of my beautiful grandchildren. They love visiting Grandpa and Grandma at the Plantation!

Mike Gervase purchased this condo in 2008

Why Mike Gervase chose Venice

My wife's parents purchased this condo brand new several years ago. During that time my wife, Nancy, and our three children enjoyed visiting Grandma and Papa during spring vacation. In 2008 we bought the condo from her mom and dad. Venice is a great city in which to vacation. We enjoy the area golf courses including the Plantation Golf and Country Club where we have a social membership. (Renters can use the social membership for a small fee paid to the country club.) We also enjoy going to area beaches and restaurants. You won't be disappointed should you decide to rent our home.

Our first time in Venice, we enjoyed the stay. The condo was very well equipped with everything you would need. Mike and Nancy was very helpful with our enquires, and told us where to go to enjoy, all that Venice had to offer. We hope to return this year.

Positive feedback

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this unit was all good --- clean, comfortable and secure. I'm relatively "picky" and this place was just fine. I would definitely recommend it to others interested in a quiet and relaxing break. The place is not large (esp the kitchen), but the layout is good, as the bedrooms are separated, allowing privacy notwithstanding the square footage.

Condo ovwelooking the 10th hole/green of Plantation Country Club

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mike and Nancy's condo in February 2015. Can't say enough about their condo. It is furnished extremely nice. It is so well equipped...3 flat screen TVs; kitchen was perfect. They even left a computer to use if needed. The pictures of this condo show exactly what is there. The grounds at Plantation are beautiful! Another plus was the use of the country club for dinner and golf. We have stayed in Plantation before and their condo is

the nicest of all the ones we stayed in. Looking forward to coming back.

Staying in Venice

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful condo looking out on the 10th green of Plantation Country Club. Everything was new and very well taken care of. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was fully furnished and the internet and big screen TV were a plus. It was easy to make it my home for 2 weeks. It was not far from the beach and shopping. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable place to stay.

Our condo experience here was much better than expected. Great location close to everything - shopping, restaurants & beaches. Our landlord was exceptional to deal with - every inquiry was promptly addressed. We plan on staying here again next year!!!

We stayed at Mike & Nancy...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mike & Nancy's condo in Nov 09. This was our first visit to Florida & we greatly enjoyed the experience. The condo was luxurious, had everything we needed and was very conveniently located. We swam in the adjacent pool, borrowed books from the clubhouse, watched world golf on Mike's TV, played bridge with other residents & joined in the Venice festival carnival. We had a great time. We temporarily joined the Plantation CC but found that we didn't use it. We played golf most days & there are so many interesting courses around that the manicured parklands of Plantation didn't excite us. Would highly recommend the area and the condo to everyone.
