About Maria Cook
My husband and I are empty-nesters. We have lived with our family in Maryland for over 25 years. Our children live in different states but we all travel to see each other as much as possible. Although my husband and I do love the snow (which we don't get enough of) we always look forward to leaving the cold, leaving the hectic pace of city living, and spending time in beautiful Venice where both the people and the waters are warm and inviting.
Maria Cook purchased this House in 2017
Why Maria Cook chose South Venice
We purchased our home in Venice after several vacations to the area because we LOVE the gulf! We love it’s beauty, its warm swim-friendly waters, the quiet solitude of a walk along the soft, sandy beaches, the relaxed pace of Venice, and the very lovely people. We look forward to possibly moving to Venice when the time is right, but for now, Pearly's Place is a great vacation home for us, our family, our friends, and hopefully you.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this house at first sight. Our cozy beach rancher is small, but spacious. It is perfect for couples or families and easily accommodates guests. We personally look forward to many family get-togethers in our beautiful Venice home. With three bedrooms, two baths, a private yard, and bright, sunny rooms with lots of windows, Pearly's Place is the perfect home away from home. The house is low maintenance, clean, roomy, and fresh in decor. It is only a mile from the ferry and boat ramp and a quick drive to all that Venice offers. It boasts a large landscaped yard in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Adding to its appeal is its one car garage with an extra-wide driveway, spacious enough for an extra car, boat, or camper. The backyard is private... fenced and surrounded by palm trees. Easy walk or bike ride to ferry and private beach.

Beware! Things the owners won't tell you!
Although all the other reviews rave about how great this place is, and how responsive the owners are, there are a few things you should know. First, the dishwasher does not load the dishes itself...you have to put them in manually. Second, the water temperature in the showers does not automatically adjust to the perfect temperature, and you have to manually adjust both hot and cold to achieve the desired temperature. And third, you will not find chocolates on the bed pillows at night. Consider yourself warned...my conscience is now clear.
Our stay here was wonderful! Maria and Dave are terrific and easily accessible with any questions. The house was immaculate and decorated beautifully! Beds were comfortable and everything was in great working order. Enjoyed Maria's original artwork too. The house had everything you could possibly need with high-end, upgraded items. The location was good in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Thank you, Maria and Dave for the extra touches that made us feel so much at home! We had to extend our stay and you were very accommodating! Highly recommend this rental.
We thoroughly loved having Mary, Leon and mom as guests at Pearly's Place. Mary was especially warm and I enjoyed the text chats we shared during their stay. David and I are so glad mom is doing well! We hope to have Mary and her family visit us again!!

Lovely Home Away From Home!
This South Venice home was outstanding and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean and beautifully decorated home during their stay in the area. The house is nicely furnished and the bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable and the linens and towels are all top of the line. The kitchen is stocked with all the cookware and flatware you'll need to cook up a nice meal with lots of extra cabinet space in addition to the pantry. The house is located on a quiet street in a safe neighborhood and is convenient for access to beaches, restaurants and grocery. With easy and safe routes to the bike trail (Venetian Waterway, which links to the Legacy Trail), the location is also perfect for cyclists.
Although we had a couple of minor hiccups due to us being the very first guests to stay in this house, David and Maria were very quick to respond, and went well above and beyond to make sure we were completely satisfied during our three-week stay. We're already planning to return here in the future!
Thank you Kathy and Jeff! We couldn't have asked for a lovelier or more gracious couple as our first guests! We look forward to having you stay with us again!
