Location, location, location! This well-equipped neat and cozy beach house is close to everything you'd ever want to do in Florida. Whether it's shopping, biking, dining, beach going, sightseeing, having a picnic, tennis, etc., you are in close proximity to it! We stayed for two months (Jan. And Feb.) and enjoyed every minute!

She really cares about her renters and caters to all of your needs, assuring that your time spent in her rental is relaxing and wanting for nothing. (Thank you, Dee!)

Clean, Quiet house with nice lanai and fenced in back yard

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in South Venice. This house is 10 minutes from Manasota beach and about 16 minutes from Venice beach and Casperson. Please note that Dee has multiple rental properties in South Venice and the house we stayed in does not match the pictures in the listing. That being said the house we were in was perfect for us. Dee said that she put us in that house since we had 5 people in our party. Not a big deal but I had noticed another reviewer mention that the house they had wasn't the same as the picture, so wanted to comment. The house has 4 beach chairs, a sharks tooth sifter, an umbrella, 2 coolers and beach toys, basically everything you need for a fun day at the great local beaches. We loved our time in this house and would stay there again if we return to South Venice. Also, Dee was super helpful. We called her and asked where the high chair was that was mentioned it the original listing. She had it dropped by from a different property the next morning.

The house was perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. It was close to everything. It was so nice to come back to an actual house instead of a hotel room. Everything we needed was there. The bed was so comfortable. The kitchen was great as well as the living room area.We ate at Sharky's and we went shopping downtown. Siesta Key is only a 30 min. drive, loved it. We would stay here again. Dee was very easy to work with ! Thanks for sharing your home. Bengy and Kay

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jasmine cottage. Very nice little home. Well manicured. Any issues you may have are well taken care of by the owner in an awesome timely manner. If you are looking for a home away from home vacation spot in Venice, fl. Dee is the person you want to deal with. Thank you again. We will be back for sure. Also this home is pet friendly and my kids had a blast with the large enclosed backyard.
