Perfect Florida Vacation Getaway
From the moment you walk in, you are delighted with the house. It is clean and annointed with every need down to the perfectly organized drawers in the kitchen. A hostess gift of wine and peanuts is left for you. The basics are provided such as paper towels and Toilet Paper so you don't have to run to store immediately. The pool and backyard are gorgeous. Best of all it is located to so many things including the adorable village of Venice which is blocks from beach. We went to Ringling museum, Spanish historic site and even saw a play at Venice Community theater. The neighborhood is quiet and there are many stores near by. The house is equipped to make anything you want for your meals if you choose to stay in. Overall, this is a keeper and would suggest in a heart beat. We had a great time.
Wow, what a fantastic review! Thank you so much for your kind words. You, too, have been great guests and it was a pleasure to communicate. Thanks also for leaving the house super clean.
Lovely clean and new!
The house is bright and clean and has everything you need. The pool is beautiful but unfortunately the weather was to cold to enjoy it. Would certainly come back!
Thank you for being our guests and thank you for leaving a 5 star review! We loved to have you with us.
A Perfect Getaway
This was an absolutely perfect getaway--in absolutely every respect. The home is completely accommodating; thoughtfully welcoming, and with such attentiveness to the countless nuances of the household which could so easily be overlooked when traveling--there was not a single comfort or necessity we were without during our stay. Birgit and Uwe have provided a foothold to another world. The location is ideal--off the thoroughfare and close to both the wild and the civilized; a bike ride and a private ferry across the bay to an unspoiled idyllic gulf beach, and a minute by car to every domestic item and service South Venice Beach has to offer--and convenient to so many options to explore: a multitude of parks and natural areas and open spaces within minutes, as well as dining, nightlife, and shopping experiences close by in every direction. And we were so fortunate to have truly marvelous Florida weather during the week: moderate temperatures, minimal humidity, a mild cool breeze and frequent modest clouds, and perfectly clear skies--the visibility was astounding. And the pool! Wunderbar! Our time at the Villa Happy Gator is an experience that will stay with us.
Thank you so much for your kind words. It makes us happy that you enjoyed your stay. You have been a great guest, it was a pleasure to communicate.
The property was awesome--brand new, tastefully furnished and very well equipped.
This property is convenient to everything Venice has to offer. We often spent early mornings walking nearby beaches or riding bikes along the beautiful trails in Shamrock Park.
Later we would return to relax around the lanai, swim in the pool, and grill dinner. We had a five star experience.
Thank you for the great review! I am so happy you liked your stay. You have been wonderful guests, so easy and friendly to communicate with. Was always a joy. And thank you for taking care so well for our Villa Happy Gator.
