Nantucket home needs a lot of work
Reviewed on Monday, March 7, 2016
This rental was very disappointing. House needs a lot of work. Even small things like the pillows and towels were old and in terrible shape. We actually went out and bought pillows because the pillows that were there were old and totally disgusting. When we arrived the carpets were filthy, but the owner did send in a carpet cleaner. For what we paid to rent this home, the owner could certainly spend a little money and bring this place up to speed. The bathrooms were old and disgusting, dishwasher didn't work and many of the kitchen utensils and equipment were broken. We have rented from this agency before and were always satisfied but this place is a dump. And most of the issues wouldn't be very expensive to remedy. Will think twice before renting from this agency again.
Nantucket House Review
Reviewed on Monday, August 4, 2014
We had a fantastic stay at the Nantucket House in South Venice. The house met our needs very well. This home is in a great location as it's close to numerous area beaches, and Shamrock Park is a great park within walking distance.
The house and pool were all very clean upon arrival, and we immediately felt at-home. This is somewhat of an older home and the kitchen and baths have not been updated, but they were all fully functional, so we had no complaints.
We ran into a few maintenance issues during our stay, but Kevin was very responsive each time we needed to reach out to him, and all of the issues were addressed very quickly. I cannot say enough about how good the maintenance service was.
The only cons about the property were: 1. the sofa bed - the sofa itself was fine and quite comfortable; but the bed part of the sofabed is worn out and would not be comfortable for a person to sleep on; 2. the yard could use some TLC as there were some overgrown plants on the walkway in the backyard; 3. the tv in the master bedroom was small and old, and the tv in the guest bedroom didn't have cable.
Otherwise, everything was great. The pool was maintained regularly; the lawncare guy was there regularly. Everything was just very, very nice. Our kids and ourselves were very happy with our stay here and we are definitely looking forward to staying here again.
Comfortable and Convenient

We had a wonderful time, just a short trip to our favorite beach. The house was comfortable and just the right size for us. Loved having the pool available for morning, afternoon and evening swims. Would definitely stay there again if it is available.
A Comfortable, Quiet & Clean Place To Stay

This house is in a nice neighborhood and it's a good location to all the things you would need. The AC kept the house comfortable and the pool was nice to have. There's some privacy in the fenced backyard and our 2 dogs had a little space to play around. There's a dog park & a dog beach just a few minutes away.
We wee able to cook and watch a little cable TV and a dear friend came to visit for 2 days and he was comfortable in his own bedroom w/ bathroom. We parked our car in the nice big garage and there's a sink and the washer/dryer in there too.
All in all we would recommend this house to rent for a week, month or longer.

Great location and the pool was one of the best features. House needs some updating with TVs and kitchen equipment but had no real problems. Would look forward to another month at the same location.
Well worth the money, just clean it up!

We were very happy with our stay, and the value was incomparable. BUT, if the owner spent a few hundred dollars with grounds cleanup we'd give it a near-perfect rating.
We don't want to be misunderstood- we were MORE then happy with the value, and for your sake, spend a couple bucks and clean up the yard.
PS- put some assists and rubber matts in the tubs. I still have bruises from my fall.

We had a wonderful time in Venice. The most important thing to me was how clean it was. That really meant alot to me. It could use some updating but it was very comfortable just the way it was. Kevin came over as soon as we arrived to make sure everything was ok. The beaches and dog parks are great. We had a wonderful stay and would do it again.

great pet friendly home

yes the place could use some updating(appliances,linens,cookware,carpet)and the ceiling fans could've used a good dusting, but it is a great pet friendly house that served our needs while looking for a home in Venice. It was spacious ,neat and as clean as a pet friendly house can be.Having previously stayed in Nokomis and on Venice Island it gave us the opportunity to consider South Venice in our search.We were very happy with the location...all amenities(beaches,shops,parks,restaurants) were within a short drive . Rental agency very helpful when we requested to
extend our stay for a few days due to Hurricane Irene disrupting our travel plans and Kevin was prompt in getting the wireless internet connection restored.
A place in the Sun

My husband & I rented the house for a month in July. We loved the pool and were able to visit several different beaches. Especially enjoyed having the tag that let us go to the private south venice beach. Kevin the property manager was were attentive &
stop by to make sure everything was ok. The pool guy and landscapers were very professional and did a great job. I would definitely do it again.

This house was comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for our month long stay. We enjoyed the screened-in pool almost daily and grilling outside. Garage and door opener remote was nice to have. Airplane noise close overhead, which was a bit much at times when out at the pool. New a/c worked great. House was convenient to beach ferry, but not very close to other beaches. House is in need of kitchen/bathroom and appliance updating, but everything seemed to work just fine. After driving all the way from Tucson with our cat for four days, it was a nice to arrive at a house with a garage, completely furnished and with cable, internet, pool, florida room, etc.
Great place for quiet and a dog

The house was great for us. We didn't find the beach that was 10 blocks but the ferry to the private beach have been nice if we didn't have a dog with us.

Our only problem was the pull out couch. The springs were not in place making the bed unusable. We didn't find out until it was too late but we made do and it all worked out.
We had a good overall stay. The pool was nice!

Being former residents of Venice we really liked the homes location. We enjoyed the free ferry boat!
The home itself was not as clean or as good of condition as the marketing photos show. A little outdated but overall okay.
The hot water heater did not work for the first two days and the a/c needed to be charged with freon. It was a little frustrating for the first few days but the property managers were responsive and nice.
Great rental house
