As you might expect, the private backyard at Flamingo House brims with color and life. Palms and tropical vegetation add lovely contrast against the bright turquoise blue of your private pool. Under a screened lanai, the pool and deck area is fantastic place to play together. Patio furniture includes sun beds for developing a great vacation tan.
Retreat to the living room solo or en masse, where a massive sectional sofa rewards tired feet after hours of shark-tooth-hunting. Newly updated with an LCD flat-screen TV, you might find you like this living room more than your own at home. Chair-rail finishing adds a touch of elegance, as do classic pieces of furniture and an inviting armchair.
An added spot for casual hanging out is the family room, where a comfy sofa doubles as a queen sleeper sofa for two. Tiled floors are clean and crisp, exactly what you want for a vacation spent in flip-flops and bare feet. A large white dining table and six chairs sit opposite, with a breakfast bar just beside. This clever open-plan means everyone can entertain diverse itineraries (napping, Facebook, cooking, reading, TV, etc.) while still enjoying shared company.
The modern kitchen gleams with white cabinetry and crisp countertops. Everything is provided in terms of cookware and nearby shops mean you’ll easily fill up the spacious cupboards. To beat the mid-day sun, look no further than your idyllic outdoor living room. Screened and fully shaded, this lanai has patio seating and an outside dining table. Seated under the ceiling fan you’ll love playing cards together here over a pitcher of iced tea. The grassed backyard just outside is fenced for pets to safely play.
Embrace your inner Parrot Head (everyone’s got one) in the indoor cocktail area. Bright tropical prints, plants and a bar table mean you only need put the lime in the coconut...or whatever your preferred recipe. A clock on the wall even marks 5 O’ clock.
Choose to accommodate a nuclear family in the master bedroom, or one couple with room to spare. A king bed and queen-sized sleeper sofa affords lots of flexibility. An overhead ceiling fan and LCD TV create your own hotel-quality space - but better (you don’t have to share the pool with anyone)! Two more guests will find beachy bliss in the second bedroom. A queen bed shows off ocean blues and greens, cleverly accented with seaside accents. The space is comfortable and polished, with a large dresser and brand new TV.
Bedroom three has two twin beds set far apart on handsome tiled floors. In neutrals with elegant furniture, the room will equally suit adults as it will children used to smaller beds. A master bath and full guest bath are kept shiny clean with high-end finishings to boot.
In total, ten guests will find vacation happiness under the roof of Flamingo House. Be sure to bring your pets, especially your water dogs.
A seven block walk to the humans’ beach, dogs will love their very own piece of the ocean - on offer at nearby Brohard Paw Park. They’ll think it’s heaven and will love you even more. Available parking at the house include a large 2 car garage and room for boat parking, with access to the boat ramp just seven blocks away. How many dolphins will you spot?

Our vacation at the Venice Flamingo house.<br/>It was very clean, water in the pool too cool<br/>for enjoyment, should of been up higher. Location was ok, just too much street traffic<br/>and noise. Close to beaches and shopping. All<br/>in all we had a very good time. Would do it again.
We stayed at the Flamingo House for the month of October.We had another couple along with our two dogs.The back yard was great, the dogs loved it ,especially when the squirrel came to visit. Too bad the orange tree was empty except for one orange. <br/> The inside of the house was very clean and we liked the lay out. We had a problem with the water softner.I called Kevin and the next morning the water company was there to fix it.We all enjoyed the pool especially my wife, she was in at least twice every day.<br/> The one area that could use a cleaning is the sides and the roof of the pool,otherwise every thing was very acceptable.<br/> We enjoyed our visit to Venice and would not hesitate to return.
We first had made a reservation for a house that was on venice island. But when we got there, the property was not as we had expected. Bad odors of humidity and one of the main bedroom was right by the furnace room. The pictures that we had seen prior<br/> to booking showed nothing that could have prepare us for the deception. There was even a cigarette flotting in the pool! But above all the air conditionner was not working properly. We had specific need in that sens so it was really important for us. M. Kevin<br/> was very helpfull and really tried to accomodate us. We felt that our concern were taking very seriously and that he had a real will to have us enjoy our vacation. He proposed us to move to another house that happened to be available. We were pleased with<br/> this new location. the property was above our expectations. with a large fenced yard for our dogs and a private pool surounded by vegetation that made it even more private. We loved it so much that we even extentended our stay for en extra week. We will definitely<br/> go back to venice and will use vacation rentalpro again. Thank you for such plesant stay. Just one litle thing. The net in the lanai was falling, the one in the door. that gave an easy access to bugs sometime in the evening. It would be nice to have that fix<br/> for the next guest.
The property at 540 Flamigo Rd. was nice.....We were disappointed when we first opened the door and saw the carpet being worn and dull.....but the other rooms made up for the carpet by being very nice ....the layout of rooms and pool with the enclosed laina was very nice ....the fenced in yard was very nice for our dog to run free....I would like to suggest better instructions or information being made available about the home...such as garbageday & information about the ferryboat to S.Venice Beach which we didn't know about for the first 2 weeks of our stay...The available Beach is very nice ....we enjoyed our stay and the area....
We were staying in 540 Flamingo house. It was fairly a decent place for a crew like ours. House is located in a very quiet area not far from shopping center. House is spacious and comfortable although it is not a very high standard, average, I would say. Pool was nice and warm besides the fact that it needed a few days and help of maintenance guys to get it work properly. Generally we had a very good time and I can honestly recommend VR Pros services for my friends. <br/>Best,<br/>Mario from Brooklyn
I'll start with the good. The house had a perfect layout for our needs. My parents stayed in the master while my husband, I and children stayed on the other side of the house. The kitchen was good. The pool was good, along with the streened porch and the best part was the fenced in backyard! It was great for our dog. It had nice working washer and dryer and an oversize garage. The driveway was huge as well. Once the traffic died down at night it was very quite
Now to the bad/ugly..
1. The decor needs to be updated and cleaned. Very outdated. Way too many pictures hanging and the carpet all needs to be ripped up and put matching tile down. A nice coat of paint would help
2. The big slidding blinds were broken and in the garage when we arrived. Many had been "fixed" with staples. I also "fixed" them with tape so people couldn't see in
3. The water tastes AWFUL! It was like I was drinking salt water. And no water pressure and it takes 3 min to get the water hot
4. Pay your freaking Internet/cable bill! I called and found out the owner hadent paid it and $600 was due. That was super annoying. No tv and Internet for days
5. It would be nice to know if there was a light in the pool? It needs a pool cleaner device that runs on the bottom
6. All bedding smiled like bo! None of us slept on the pillowes bc it smelled so bad. My advice, throw away all pillows and buy new ones along with protectors for them.
7. Bathrooms need updating.. Badly!
8. I'm pretty sure that the bath rugs weren't cleaned upon our arrival. The fibers were all smashed down. Which in turn makes you wonder if anything else was cleaned?!
9. The patio table was cleaned along with the tile outside bc it was super nasty
10. It would be nice to know when trash day is and what items need to go into what recycling bins. Also need to know when pool person and yard maintenance was coming. I wrote down and left on fridge for others.
11. The street this house is on is a race track! The cars are driving at least 50 mph or more. It's freaking crazy. Loud street traffic. Btw the speed limit is 30. We were the only ones that actually drove that speed
12. All glasses , sharp knifes and ect need to be replaced and or added too.
13. I pulled out a big soft blanket from the linen closet and a cup of sand fell all over the floor! Once again makes you wonder if anything was cleaned before we arrived.
