Christmas on Cadiz

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this wonderful rental for the Christmas holiday from December 16 until December 31, 2016. The home is everything it appears to be and more! The home owner could not have been any more wonderful making sure that we had everything we needed and the location of the home is perfect! Our grandchildren could walk to the beach, the basketball courts, the park and would often ride the bikes provided by the home owner to the downtown Venice area. The house is located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood and was very clean and comfortable. This is one of the nicest rentals we have had, and the time we spent together both in the spacious home and playing in the pool will long be remembered

Perfect for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the house. As a family of 6 there was plenty of room to spread out and we didn't have to spend our whole vacation crammed in a small space! The house itself was comfortable and the pool was a great bonus for times the kids still wanted water but we needed time out of the sun! There are several different beaches close by (from a walk to a 20 min drive) so we were able to explore all of them and they each offered something fun! Grocery stores, restaurants, and the quaint little community of Venice all contributed to an overall great experience! We would definitely recommend this for anyone!

A Nice Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was nice, spacious, well maintained and fully equiped for a family of 4 children.

We were 10 min walk from a beautiful beach in a very quiet neighbourhood.

The property was better than the pictures.

The owner was nice, helpful and attentive.

Weather was beautiful, what else do you need !

A Terrific Place to stay on Venice Island

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need for a terrific time in Venice. We really enjoyed the morning beach yoga, the proximity to town and beach, and the two nearby bike trails. We walked or rode bikes to the weekly farmers market, free concerts in the park, and the numerous restaurants and bars in Venice. The house had everything we could have wanted and more, like baking spices and utensels, bikes, yoga mat, shark tooth scoop, wagon, sand bucket toys and bed guard for our two-year old grand-nephew that visited. The owners were very easy to work with and things couldn't have been nicer.

A wonderful place to entertain and enjoy our daughter's wedding

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this great home. We were traveling for our daughter's wedding and needed enough space to host other family and friends. This house was great and just what we needed. We loved the location, close to the beach, close to the shopping district, very convenient for getting groceries and everything else we needed to do. We enjoyed the multiple tables in the home, plenty of space for feeding guests. The pool was great, plenty of chairs around the pool, floats and toys. All in all this was a great place, and if we were to return to Venice we would certainly be interested in staying in this home again.
