About Birgit Laniewski - I am looking forward to your message!
Florida is faszinating me since many years. I love the tropical nature with the wonderful flora and fauna. The miles long beaches of the Southwestern Gulf Coast are unique. 2016 we made our dream come true and built this vacation home - that we love to share with our valued guests. I live in Frankfurt, Germany, together with my family.
Birgit Laniewski - I am looking forward to your message! purchased this House in 2016
Why Birgit Laniewski - I am looking forward to your message! chose South Venice
Alligator Drive – isn’t it a fantastic address? You know from the start you are in Florida! But no worry, you will not meet one of those primeval guys around our house. To match to the location we named our house "Villa Happy Gator" - and hope we and our guests will spend there many happy days.
What makes this House unique
We put a lot of passion in our Villa Happy Gator. This is noticed by our guests who reward us with 5-star reviews. The vaulted and bright rooms are modernly furnished and lovingly decorated. Everything is of high quality, clean and well cared for.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Happy Gator. From the moment we walked into the house we felt at home and comfortable. No detail has been overlooked in making the house welcoming for guests. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and eat at home and the bathrooms are modern and beautiful. The pool area is spectacular and feels very private even though there are other homes nearby. The home is well-designed to accommodate guests, who can stay in bedrooms and use a bathroom on the other side of the house from the master bedroom and bath. Everything is clean, well-designed and lovely. We highly recommend this home for anyone interested in staying in the Venice area!
Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay.
THIS PLACE IS A SLICE OF HEAVEN
We had the best of everything in the house on Alligator Dr. Villa Happy Gator was so well stocked, clean and inviting. Birgit was a pleasure to work with during our rental process. I would recommend this home and we will try to rebook if there is ever a vacancy during our vacation time.
Thank you so much for this great review. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. It was a joy to have you as our guests and communicating was always easy and a pleasure. Thank you for taking care of our house so wonderful. As you saw, my Hibiscus loved your care so much, it is starting to bloom!
Well kept property
The house is nice, well equipped and near to very nice beaches and golfcourses. The surroundings are less attractive.
Furniture, inside and outside, is good-looking and functional.
Thank you for letting others know that you loved our Villa Happy Gator. Indeed we put a lot of effort in keeping it in an excellent condition and creating a welcoming atmosphere. Our guests appreciate the fact that our vacation home is situated within a typical American residential neighborhood – far away from tourist centers, safe and with friendly people – a true “Home away from Home”.
Very nice cosy villa in quiet neighbourhood
My wife and Irene and I enjoyed a wonderfull stay in a new cosy comfortable villa in a quiet neighbourhood in South Venice. The house is 2 years old, nice modern interior, fully equipped kitchen. And if you like to visit the beach..... the full equipment for a succesfull day on the gulf is readily available in the garage. If you like to stay at home, a nice pool and a comfortable pooldeck with lounge chairs is awaiting you.
The landlady, sympathetic Birgit from Germany, responds very fast if you have questions on your booking and other uncertainties if you have some!
All in all a great experience, we gladly booked again in the fall 2019 and spring 2020.
Birgit, thanks a lot for renting your lovely home! Ron and Irene
Thank you so much for this great review. We appreciate the always pleasant communication and are so happy you had a wonderful time in Venice. We are looking forward to have you again!
Clean and welcoming home away from home
Our family spent three days here and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The home is tucked away in a residential area away from the noisy streets. You can tell the owner takes pride in this home as it was exceptionally clean and well maintained. She was also great at sharing information regarding the area, the home itself and even the weather! We were arriving at a time when the red tide had been affecting the beaches. We really lucked out in our timing and were able to spend some time on a private part of Caspersan beach. The kids are still talking about this place. Thank you for opening your home to us.
Very clean and complete amenities.
This property was spotless.
Thank you so much for your 5 stars! I am very happy to pass this compliment on to my cleaning team Doreen and René.
You have been great guests, thanks for your stay.

The Mediterranean architecture of the historic center around Venice Avenue, the old mansions and trees and the numerous bars, restaurants and shops give this special atmosphere.
