About Dee Truluck-Williams

Jason and I are originally from Wales in the Great Britain. We love the US and spend half the year in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire at our lake cottage and half the year in Venice, Florida. We enjoy boating and meeting our guests! If we are in town, boating with our guests is always fun!

Dee Truluck-Williams purchased this house in 2012

Why Dee Truluck-Williams chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Love this house and love our pool! Lovely LED pool lighting for evening ambiance! Spacious, close to the most beautiful private beach we've ever seen! We always feel like we are on vacation here! With the pool, beach, bikes and kayaks, we never want to leave!

What makes this house unique

Very quiet, very private, yet close to store and dining just minutes away!

Guestbook comments from the manager

A really nice home that had everything we needed. Nicely furnished, very convenient location for beaches, stores, dining etc. Great fun finding sharks teeth om the beach with my children. The owner was easy to work with, the few questions we had upon arrival were answered immediately. The property was well maintained and very clean. One thing that we loved was that the house had tiled floors throughout, it was very nice. The swimming pool was great and the fenced garden made it very safe for our children and private for us. We will be back next year!

A lot of great and would recommend with one or two changes

  • 4 of 5

First, the pics don't do it justice so what seemed good online was great in person which is always a pleasant surprise. The greatest part of the house was the outdoor space. We loved it! I also appreciated unlike other rentals or hotels for that matter, we had plenty of both beach and bath towels. Thank you! The ac worked well which is very important to us. The pool was very clean (a bit chilly for a heated pool, but you get used to it) and minus not finding a colander to drain pasta, kitchen was clean and well equipped for most of our needs. Loved the private island--such pretty water and great for shark teeth finding. Other beaches were a bit of a distance though Venice and Caspersen around 20 minutes and Siesta 30-35.

Upon initial inspection, it looked in order and clean, but later the first day I started noticing white/blonde dog hair, with the majority being in the MBR on the futon. That night at bedtime, I saw it was in the bed which we found to be gross or feel dirty to us. It also was stuck all on my pants I had in the bathroom so it was there when we entered bed (hope not) or we carried it from being in the house. I realize it is pet friendly, but there could be extra care given to cleaning hair and definitely a double check on hair in the master bed. The bed comfort was very good though. My only other issue was although quick to respond while at the house there were two times in the booking process where I waited 2 days for a response and had to end up calling to follow up on day 3.

I loved all the toys they had there (though my avid readers would love if Dee could add children's chapter books to the collection) and it seemed like a quiet area. I really got a kick out of the private island and again jealous of the great outdoor space. We would highly recommend especially with the two fixes made. Stores nearby and prompt return of deposit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the detailed review and glad you really liked the space and found it better than the photos - I obviously need to get better ones! Great idea kids books - will add some! As for pet hairs, I prodded the cleaners on this issue! We do tell our guests to vacuum before final departure if they brought a pet, as it is a privilage to be able to bring pets along on vacation. Most guests are great, but some not so much! House keepers should have been more thorough! As for slow response, very unusual for me but was on vacation myself that week when you called enjoying some R&R! Hope I'm forgiven! See you next year!

Enjoyable visit

  • 5 of 5

Dee went out of her way to make sure all was ready with the house in Venice. The house worked out very well for us, as we took advantage of the pool, kayaks, etc. during our stay. The house was very clean and offered all the amenities we needed throughout our stay. The neighbors (one house was not the neatest) were all quiet during our stay.

The South Venice Ferry was close enough to walk to and was great for beach combing for shark teeth. All other area beaches (Manasota, Caspersen, Brohard and Venice) are very family friendly during spring break. Venice continues to add to its downtown and the local restaurants were all good.

Looking forward to another stay in the future and have recommended this house to others already.
