Lovely Home in South Venice, Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing stay at Gerty's Contemporary Pool Villa II in South Venice, Florida! When we arrived to check in, Gerty was there to greet us in person, and we found the home to be very clean and beautifully maintained and decorated ---- just like in the pictures on the HomeAway site! Gerty was so sweet and beautiful (both inside and out), and we appreciated both the friendly welcome and the personal tour of the property! The location is great --- just a short drive to local beach access and great restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed utilizing the free ferry pass to access a more private area of the beach, and our kids especially enjoyed the pool. We were given the option of paying extra to have the pool heated, but we found it not to be necessary, as the pool temperature was comfortable enough for everyone to enjoy (we stayed in early June). We unfortunately timed our visit poorly from a weather perspective, however, as it was quite rainy and gloomy (very atypical for Florida) for most of our trip. The positive side was that the adverse weather allowed us to enjoy the inside of the home even more. The kitchen area is nice, and we were able to cook and dine-in quite a bit (we also utilized the outdoor grill). We appreciated the free wifi, large-screen televisions, and the huge beds, which were SUPER-soft! Our daughters are at ages where they love to play with Barbie dolls, and Gerty even had a supply of dolls there at the house for the girls to enjoy! Gerty's decorating style is amazing -- very contemporary---, and both the indoor and outdoor spaces look like they should be featured in a magazine! We also enjoyed getting to know Marty (who lives just across the street and was available to assist with any household/maintenance concerns) --- such a kind and generous man! I have been vacationing with my family in the Sarasota and Venice areas since I was a child, and we truly love the area. My husband especially loves finding shark's teeth at the local beaches near Venice, and our daughters love to help him hunt. This year, we came home with >3,400! Had the weather been better, I'm sure we would have found even more! :) This was the first time we have rented a home from Gerty. We had a wonderful stay, and we do hope to be able to come back again next year! Thank you, Gerty! XOXO

An Amazing retreat with my sisters!

  • 5 of 5

Gertie was incredible to work with. She was very quick to send all responses along with great detail for check-in and fun things to do around the area. Her home is absolutely gorgeous, with everything you need as if it was your own home! The pool was a delight just to sit back and enjoy with a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful sun! 🌞🍷Definitely a five-star Retreat!!!

I would highly recommend this to everyone! We will definitely be back to enjoy again. Thanks Gertie for everthing!!!!

We stayed in Vila II for the month of January 2017 and will definitely return next year. Over the years we've rented several other homes in Venice, but this house exceeded our expectations. Gerty keeps her home in immaculate condition and provides everything you would need for an enjoyable stay with family and friends. The furniture and décor are very chic and add to the charm of the house. The pool area is lovely and extremely private. There are comfortable lounge chairs, a large modern grill and table and chairs for dining or computer work. She has a manager close by who will help with any issues that may come up. We're hoping that one or two of her long-standing tenants will not be returning next year because we would like to rent the house for two or three months. You will not find a better value or more accommodating landlord than Gerty.

We loved everything about our stay in Gerty's house. It's a beautiful home (modern IKEA style), quiet neighborhood, very clean, everything was there and our 2 toddlers loved the pool, the ferry to the private beach and the toys. Thanks so much for everything!

According to U.S.News World Report 1997 Venice has been chosen as the only city in Florida to be in the top ten of the most beautiful and best places in the U.S.!

This gorgeous Venice is a wonderful blend of Mediterranean architecture, coupled with a unique tropical atmosphere. This beautiful, small and friendly city, the only town on the east coast, which lies directly on the Gulf of Mexico and disposes of miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches.

Venice is central to countless attractions.

-Visit the Venice festivals

-Have fun at Busch Gardens in Tampa or at Disney World in Orlando

-Take a trip to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota or the Salvador Dali Museum in St.Petersburg

-Explore the Everglades in the South

-Go shopping in the Designer Ellenton Premium Outlet

All of this and much more is in easy driving distance! Venice is the idea location for many excursions.

Our guests are provided with 5 brand bicycles (4 adults,1 child) with which to enjoy the parks' paved bicycle paths, stretching for miles alongside the inland waterway.

Venice is famous for the fossilized shark's teeth that can be found on the beaches.

We have 5 beaches near by - less than 10 car minutes away. One, the South Venice Beach is made up of a small stretch of seven miles of land, which can only be reached by ferry or boat-the family ferry pass is provided for our guest. As well there are three privately owned golf courses (Bird Bay, Capri Isles, and Waterford), and the Shamrock Park & Nature Center, which is free for visitors and houses basketball and tennis courts, a one mile hiking trail, and even a playground for the kids. More central to South Venice Beach is also a small strip of stores for a wonderful afternoon of shopping or a café lunch.

Golfers come from all around our award-winning golf courses to play. At best, however, that even in high season the beaches are still empty. In the vicinity of the Casperson Beach is also a golf course and a nature park with a fitness and fishing and a playground. Restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers, restaurants, cinemas, doctors and hospitals, banks, library and much more are also within a few minutes for you to reach. And beyond that, there is the beach also has a restaurant with a Tikki bar with music and dance that invites you to linger.
