With VRBO a problem is not a problem

There was a maintenance issue at the original house that we rented. We contacted VRBO and they gave us an option of a second location. Customer service was excellent! They did not hesitate to make our accommodations pleasant. We have used this company in the past and will continue to in the future.
you found the house, location and relaxation.

We stayed at Falcon House for a month and thoroughly enjoyed it! The house was very clean and had everything we needed to relax and unwind. The neighborhood was quiet and convenient to stores. We really enjoyed the private beach! It was Shark Tooth Heaven!! Kevin was more than helpful, even referring us to a good mechanic when we had trouble with our truck. Overall, we were very impressed and would certainly recommend Falcon House and Vacation Rental Pros. Thanks for your hospitality!

We are a military family that was in transition to Germany and we could not have been more pleased with our choice of places to stay. This house held all the household goods one would need (towels, beddding, and all kitchen supplies). Beaches are close by and Falcon Beach is a ferry ride is just at end of street. We are off to Germany now and loved our vacation.
Wonderful month at the beach!

My family and I spent 28 days at the Falcon Rd. house and really enjoyed our stay! It is a nice house, with a fully stocked kitchen and a great pool. The beach ferry is wonderful and the private beach is the best in the area. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day.
Spring Break at the Falcon House

We had a wonderful stay at the Falcon House. The house was exactly what we had my family and I had hoped for. The house was spotless and it had all of the necessities needed for our stay.The pool was wonderful and the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed using the ferry to get to the beach and the beach was absolutely breathtaking. We had a perfect stay and would highly recommend this house. Thank you for a wonderful week.
Few small fixes and it woulda been perfect

The house was perfect & great location. A block & !/2 away is a ferry that's included to a beach where if you enjoy the hunt you can find sharks teeth by the jars full. The house is 10min to everything you NEED but !/2hr from mall. 40 min to Siesta beach WORTH the trip. So very very beautiful. Our subdivision is super quiet & people to the right are sweet. Next door left, house for sale & next to them (downfall) the house is a complete junk yard & eye sore. Can't see from house. Almost everything at our place was very clean but for the one side of the house by the pool. Lots of debris & old fence & rubbish. A few things in the house were loose & crooked (kitch tile floor loose, 2nd bathroom shower tiles pushed in, handles on screen doors fall off, main bedroom toilet didn't work, outside sitting area off 2nd bedroom really not nice & was kind of a mini storage room for extra doors & BBQ. Washer and drier great, fridge is new, kitch has everything & pretty good quality for a rental. I cook a lot. Lots of plates & cutlery. Were there a month & saw the grounds keepers once for 10 min & they did mostly nothing. The owner is wasting his $ on these guys, Next time they can clean the side yard. To anyone with a long ish haired dog be wherry of yard sand spurs. We're unfamiliar with them. We saw they were in the yard & the same day of arrival we saw the pool guy who called the manager & he sent maintenance to help us remedy the situation. As this problem really is mother nature, we were so happy with our quick fix. Although a few things can be changed, we had a 10 outta 10 time & loved the quietness of the area, & ferry so close by. We felt very safe there. Which is key. I'm a mid aged lady & like to jog. I had no problem in day running by myself with headphones on. Cars are courteous. If you're looking for quiet & nobody looking over your shoulder this is the place. No one will ever bother you until you call if you need anything.
A Memorable Holiday!!!

December 2011 was one of the warmest on record, and we took full advantage of it! The heated pool beckoned on our arrival, and we used it every day! The ferry pass took us to an uncrowded private beach for sun, sharks' teeth, shells and fishing. Numerous bike paths in the area let us exercise while viewing alligators, eagles, and deer. Inshore charter fishing was great, and the manatee were a bonus.
We loved the quiet neighbourhood, the privacy of the back yard, taking walks with our dogs... two minor problems were taken care of by Kevin within 90 minutes of a phone call.
Sure, the Falcon house could use some upgrades and repairs....but we loved every minute of our stay and plan to return to Venice.
The Falcon is Fine Feathered

We really enjoyed this house. Very comfortable and livable. I especially liked the kitchen with its' windows overlooking the pool & patio. The pool is nice, enjoyed the sound of the waterfall. One small suggestion: the trees & bushes surrounding the pool cage need trimming as they are rubbing against the screening, also, the gutters are clogged and need cleaned due to all the leaf debris. Outdoor maintainance in Fla. is a constant challenge. Again, we really appreciated Kevin and his prompt attention to our questions and requests. He does a great job! It's always a pleasure to deal with him. Thanks! Looking forward to returning in Autumn 2012.
Neighborhood not great. Yard and exterior need work. Also has some minor maintainence issues inside

Met the property manager once when we had an issue w/ Internet. He was nice and helpful. However we were surprised there was no other interaction. No one asked us if we had any questions or if we needed anything. The only times we heard from property management were recorded messages over the phone. A more personal touch is needed. We didn't want to be pestered but if we hadn't had a problem with the Internet, we would have never talked to anyone from management. Also, the property needs some work. There was trash and brush piled beside the pool, virtually no grass in the yard, stained ceilings from old leaks, etc. These are minor issues, but when you're charging $5000 a month, these issues should be taken care of. We liked the layout of the house and the location was convenient. We also appreciated being able to have our dogs with us. Do you have other pet friendly properties in the Venice area?
Very Private--Ferry Experience Terrific

December 2010 ended up being one of the coldest months in Florida history, but in spite of that, we enjoyed our time in the Falcon Beach home--although we used the heat inside, more than the heated pool! When weather allowed, we greatly enjoyed the ferry ride (Thank you, Captain Ralph!) to the very pristine private beach where we found more shark's teeth in one day, than would be expected at another beach in a week or more.
Kevin, the property manager, was quickly responsive in helping with the minor issues that we encountered with the pool and dishwasher. None of these were big deals, but could have become so, without his fast action in taking care of things. Thank you Kevin!
It was overall a great rental experience, but I do want to add the comment that when you rent a home with a fully equipped kitchen I don't think that it is unreasonable to expect ice trays in the freezer. However, there were none in the Falcon house. We bought bagged iced for the time that we were there, but it would save not only money, but also resources, to be able to have a source of ice from the faucet. I would strongly recommend the purchase of cheap ice trays for the Falcon Beach home for the future.
In spite of this one minor caveat,our experience was very positive. Thank you so much.
Versatile home, with great lanai-pool area

Beautiful tile floors, a very well-equipped kitchen, and nicely separated sleeping areas are prominent features of this home. Access to a private, nearby beach is another plus. A variety of tropical plants adds floral beauty to the setting.

The home was close to Venice and Nakomis beaches. S. Venice beach had less people, but was more difficult to use due to the need for the ferry. Family chose other beaches, I went to S. Venice a few times.
A fantastic Venice property!

In addition to the house/location, we especially enjoyed the heated pool, the privacy and the general quietness of the neighborhood.
The owner and the property manager were helpful and did their best to ensure that everything on site was perfect.
We especially enjoyed utilizing the ferry pass and the closeness of the house to the ferry--walking distance.
They even provided excellent weather for our 7 weeks!
