Wonderful October Vacation
Reviewed on Tuesday, November 3, 2015
This house was better than we expected. It had extra touches that made it seem like home. Any issues we had were promptly taken care of by your company. Great location, close to beaches and all shops, would go back tomorrow if I could!

We really enjoyed our stay. House is very nice, many improvements thanks to the new owners. The Pergola above the patio was a great addition. Our thanks to Nels for his assistance with 2 issues. Hope to return in 2016.
A LITTLE CORNER OF PARADISE
Reviewed on Tuesday, September 22, 2015
Having rented innumerable properties in Florida over the years, this rental was one of the most satisfying. It was perfect for my wife and I - secluded, peaceful and private. The view from the lanai was lovely - especially at sundown - and the internal accommodation well-appointed and well-equipped. The owners have done much to make guests feel welcome. There isn't a list of 'do's and dont's' (which can be condescending and obvious) but rather some practical and sensible advice. We appreciated that.
There were some minor issues with the standard of pre-rental cleaning (evidence of some careless cleaning practices) but easily sorted out. Certainly it didn't spoil our stay at all. And, I hasten to add, this was not the fault of the owners.
As regards the rental agency, while the local agent was a pleasant and helpful young man, the actual booking process was not as straightforward as it ought to have been. Prior to our original booking, there was some considerable confusion around the price quoted on the VRBO website and the price we were charged. This almost put us off renting the property as no one was able to explain satisfactorily the discrepancy between the prices quoted. Fortunately, we persisted and I'm very glad we did. Before we left, we had a telephone conversation with the local agent and asked that someone contact us to discuss our renting the property again next year. Disappointingly though, no one has been in touch with us.
Perhaps the only drawback for a family staying there is that the pool area is quite small and as there are only two sun-loungers, it may be tricky to accommodate everyone comfortably. Otherwise though, this property is worth serious consideration.

This was our second stay in this home. For us it is very comfortable house, the view of Claw lake from the Lanai and the pool area is lovely. Plus, we like the neighborhood, quiet, yet convenient to shopping,the Library, the parks & beaches. Hope to return in the Spring of 2014. Again, my compliments to Kevin, he is an excellent Property MGR., good man!

This is our 2nd time going to the Venice house. The scenery certainly helps destress. The neighbourhood is great-very safe and quite yet close to shopping, restuarants, beaches and golf courses. A very dog friendly home.

Wow! What a fantastic rental! Couldn't have been happier. The house was beautiful, very clean and was ready for me to immediately move in. I had a wonderful time in Venice. Loved the house's pool and nearby beaches. I did have one problem in the bedroom, but it was resolved extremely quick. The property manager, Kevin and all his staff were so nice, professional, and helpful that I can't say enough nice things about them and the entire experience. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend to anyone looking for a home away from home in sunny Florida!

We enjoyed our time in Venice very much ! We will return again for sure . The pool was very refreshing and the weather was grand. Having wifi was a huge added advantage. We had hoped to take the bikes on the nearby trail but the bike tires were flat and we couldnt find a bike pump. Property was clean,neighbors friendly and wildlife was fascinating. Enjoyed the quiet residential area as well. We are already planning another vacation in Venice.

We enjoyed the location, pool and ambiance of this house and in fact have booked there again for Nov. 2012.We felt very comfortable in the house. The furniture in the family room and lanai was a little tired. The bar-b-que ,while functional, had some heat distribution issues. The neighbourhood was very safe and the people were friendly.
Great holidays, I would recommand it anytime!

here now the assessment to our stay in September in the house Cambridge drive in Venice:
Venice Gardens is a very nice and sure area. We have liked the house very well, The neighborhood is very friendly. Particularly we have enjoyed the pool and the view of the canal. (dreamlike sundowns). Everything was very clean and furnished suitably. The care by Dennis very felt well and we have got some tips of him (many greetings to Him). We would book with pleasure also next year again a house with you. With the winding up by your company we were very contented. Over again many thanks for the good care

This property was very neat and clean. We appreciated having 3 t.v.s, beach equipment, bikes and the heated pool. A very nice, safe neighborhood to walk in plus very convenient for events/shopping in Venice. The only recommendation would be to have a clock or two in the bedrooms. Enjoyable 3 wks.
