Beautiful house in a beautiful town, STUNNING!
This home is beautiful and ideally situated within a short walk to Sharkys on the Pier (must visit) and a half hour walk to Venice Main Street. My wife and I turned up with our 9 month old and everything was catered for in the house. High chair seat, 2 cots and everything in the kitchen we have in our own. Beautiful neighbourhood, quiet but close to lots of fun and activity. We were lucky enough to be in town for the Venice Sun Fiesta which takes over Main Street and is full of locals which are all so friendly. The house is ideal, we were only 3 but could have had 2 additional couples with us and would all of had space. The pool is a tranquil setting to enjoy late afternoon sun after returning from the beach. Local beaches are stunning, but I have to recommend Siesta Key (25 mins drive North) and Boca Grande (35 mins drive south). Our favourites anyway. Grocery store on your doorstep and breakfast places a plenty nearby which is our favourite.
Amy is a Highly attentive contact, quick responses during he booking and would have been readily available whilst there if needed, although wasn't as all was perfect.
Can't recommend this place high enough not only for the house and it's pool and bbq area but the area as well. We are already planning our return in 2015 but if we can we will be back next year.
Enjoy! (Well worth visiting Daquiri Deck on Main Street for food and cocktails and a great ice cream shop opposite)
The House was in a great location, although needs some minor upgrades. Would have rated it a 5 but was not that clean when we arrived, could use more beach chairs (had several canvas Coleman chairs which are not so good for the beach), bed blankets, pillow cases for extra pillows. The pool was great. House set up was great for family with grandparents, children, grandchildren as it is a split floor plan which provides privacy. We would return again since we had such a great vacation.
Hi Helena - I'm happy to hear you had a great vacation and enjoyed our location! I think you somehow missed seeing the beach gear bin filled with folding beach chairs. It is large and on the back open air patio. We have plenty of beach chairs. Also there are lots of extra bed linens but if you need extras please call us & housekeepers will be by. Guests typically rave about our devoted housekeepers and their very thorough cleaning - if you ever notice a cleaning issue please report it right away so the team can come rectify the issue for the comfort of your vacation stay. Best regards, amy
Wonderful weekend getaway
The house was very clean, very well kept and we enjoyed our long weekend stay very much. The walk to the beach and Sharky's Beach Bar & Grill was short and very convenient. The pool cleaners came on Saturday afternoon which meant we had to get out of the pool and stay out for awhile - sort of ill-timed - but other than that everything was perfect!
Hi Jennifer - I'm thrilled to hear you had a wonderful weekend vacation and that you found Villa Sorrento to be very clean & convenient! The pool guys are typically fast and they come weekly - usually they don't take much time and keep the pool in great shape.
Best regards, amy
Everything expected and more!
Our stay in Venice at the villa sorento was everything we could have hoped for. A group of 9 people fit comfortably for a long weekend away. It was very clean and well maintained. The heated pool was perfect especially after spending the day at the beach. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms were nice. It’s a short drive and a nice walk to Venice beach where you can spend the entire day at the beach and sharky’s restaurant. We are at the crow’s nest marina restaraunt and it was outstanding. We will surely be back!
Hi Lisa So glad you found villa Sorrento to be more than you expected in a vacation home! Happy to hear you appreciated this vacation house as very clean, comfortable and well maintained. I love crow's nest too - that's one of my favorite places and Sharky's has fun beach atmosphere with an exceptional location. best, amy
Fun in the sun

Hi Jeff - Thanks for being fantastic guests! Glad you enjoyed Villa Sorrento!! Best, amy & team
Wonderful home for relaxing getaway
We stayed with our two girls- teen and tween- and it was just perfect. The pool was a great way to start and end each day- having it heated made it extra-enjoyable. Very clean throughout, beds were quite comfortable, and plenty of towels for bathing and pool. Quiet neighborhood and easy traveling to all Venice activities. Amy was very quick to respond to any questions we had. Thank you!
So happy you found villa Sorrento to be the perfect vacation house for your family! Thanks for your kind words - I will pass them along to our amazing housekeepers!
