This was my husband and I's first time using a vacation rental rather than pay for a hotel. I must say we are absolutely thrilled that we took a chance and rented this house rather than going to a hotel. We travel quite often. We kept being drawn to Venice for some reason even though we really didn't know that much about it and we fell in LOVE with it immediately! So much so that we are actively planning to buy our second home somewhere in the area. I am sad that we only got to spend 6 days, 5 nights in this paradise! I did get sick during the stay unfortunately so we didn't get to see and do as much as we would have liked to but I can guarantee 100% that we WILL be back!! Not only do I want to come back and stay in Venice, I want to stay in that house again. It had a very comortable "Welcome Home" type of feel to it. Our favorite part was riding the ferry over to the private beach. We found lots of beautiful shells and about 100 shark teeth. The weather was great for the most part.
I loved that it is "ready to move into" you really don't need to bring anything except food and personal items. They have lots of stuff in the kitchen available to use and lots of pool toys and your very important shark tooth finder-also known as "Florida snow shovel" Despite getting sick, I felt more healthy and alive in that place than ever before.
If you are straight out of college and looking for a place to party-then go ahead and click the back button this one isn't for you. If you are a family/couple who are looking for a place for some true rest and relaxation with adventure thrown in, then you've found the right place.
I cannot say enough good things about the landlord. Mrs. Dee is very friendly and responds to all texts/emails/calls very quickly. I got a good sense of her being an honest trustworthy person just after talking to her for a few minutes.
The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We didn't hear any sirens or people fighting the whole time we were there! I slept better than I have in years.
We have many memories from this unit to treasure for a lifetime but most definitely are already in the works of making plans for our next trip! Thanks so much Mrs. Dee for sharing your beautiful home with us :-)

Thank you Dee for sharing your home with us !! My daughter and I stayed for a week and couldn't have dreamed of a better vacation !! The house included everything u could possibly need or want including kayaks ,bicycles, beach chairs ,umbrella ,and to top it off was the ferry pass with the private beach . we will definitely return as soon as possible !!!
We had a fabulous time in South Venice! The home was immaculate with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The neighborhood was quiet and the perfect setting for late night conversations on the screened- in porch. The private beach was simply spectacular. Dee was very communicative before and during our stay! We plan to return very soon because of our positive experience!
