About Lin Gruber

We live on the beach on Manasota Key. We are constantly updating our unit. We would love to be your host. We are from Cleveland and Iowa, but spent most of our married lives in Pittsburgh, PA. We absolutely LOVE it here and Plantation is our second home.

Lin Gruber purchased this villa in 2011

Why Lin Gruber chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We are members of Plantation Golf and Country Club. We love the two 18-hole golf courses, and the tennis facilities. The course is used every year by the LPGA qualifiying event in the fall.

What makes this villa unique

We are only a couple hours drive to Orlando, and about an hour and a half to Tampa. We are midway between Tampa and Ft. Meyers airports. Sarasota airport is half an hour's drive. The villa is on a quiet street with the pool directly across the street.

Great in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this villa for four months each year for the past three years. Have had a wonderful experience each time. So many great things about this rental. Lin & Gerry couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating, location directly across street from pool, friendly neighbors, quiet neighborhood, easy drive to grocery stores and other services, quick drive to downtown Venice and a great lanai to sip a toddy while watching golfers. One of the nicest spots that we've ever rented in Florida.

Had everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for several months while we searched for a new home and had our belongings in storage. The villa had everything that we needed, including Wi-Fi. And the owner was so flexible as we weren't certain when we would arrive or when we would depart since closing dates changed. She only asked that we keep her updated as to our plans. We really appreciated it and do not hesitate to recommend this villa. And since we were there during the summer, having a pool right across the street was a bonus.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and myself rented this villa for two months during the summer while we were puchasing a home in the Venice area. The villa had everything we required - clean, homely, private situation with the lanai backing on to the golf course. The owners live locally and are very accomodating Having internet access was a bonus as we have a small notebook to keep in touch while traveling. Plantation is a very nice location for walking and is within easy driving distance to Venice beaches, local amenities etc. Even though we occupied most of our time house hunting, we enjoyed our stay here and would definitely consider staying here again if it was available..

Snow Birds from Illinois

  • 5 of 5

This has been our best rental unit in Florida. The Lin and Gerry were wonderful owners to work with. Everything in their listing was as good or better than pictured. Being right across from the pool was great, whether to see aerobics or if the flamingo was out for socializing with our neighbors. We were able to check out the golfers and watch the sandhill cranes early in the morning from the lanai. It was a great experience. Thank you for a great month.

Indiana Couple

  • 5 of 5

This villa was wonderful! The location was great, right across from the heated pool in the front and we could watch the golfers tee off on the 7th hole on the screened back porch. Gerry and Lin, the owners, are in town and available to answer any questions you might have but allow you your privacy. The "gray" villas, as they are called, were like having a little neighborhood with Tuesday night pool party and water aerobics on Mon., Wed., and Fri. mornings. You can join-in as much you want or have your privacy or both. Venice is 5 miles away with resturants and shops and the Manasota Beach is only a 10 min. drive.

We have been coming to the Venice area for many years and this is the first time we've been in Plantation and we highly recomend the area and this villa.

Thanks Gerry and Lin

Car: necessary

The villa is located 20 mins from Sarasota Intl Airport and one hour from Tampa or Fort Myers' Intl Airports. You are also minutes from the most gorgeous beaches in the US. 10 mins from Manasota,Venice and Caspersen beaches and 20 minutes south of Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota which was voted the best beach in the country by the History Channel several years in a row. Surrounding you are 20-30 beautiful golf courses. All are well kept and affordable.

The Plantation is a protected bird sanctuary and is home to just about every exotic bird on the west coast of Florida. Ospreys and Sandhill Cranes are nesting in the course trees, also you will see bald eagles flying around the lakes looking for fish, Ibis, Egrets, and alligators too!

You are in very close to all the shopping and restaurants you could imagine.
