Perfect Vacation Spot
Perfect Vacation Spot
I stayed at this property with 3 women friends. This home is exactly as shown in the accompanying photos and as described. It is comfortably furnished and immaculate. We had more than enough room for shared activities, extra guests, and also space for our individual privacy. The pool and lanai areas are perfect for entertaining and/or relaxing. The kitchen is fully equipped for any guests who want to prepare their own meals, which we did. We are a group of walkers, so it was great to walk to town, beach or wherever. For longer excursions, we of course could drive. The proximity to Sarasota meant an easy drive to enjoy the museums, dining, and cultural events taking place there. We could not have had a more delightful place to stay, with all the amenities one could wish for, and at a very reasonable price. We are looking forward to a repeat visit at some future time.

The lovely home was aptly described and pictured by the owner. The outside beautifully landscaped and the inside has a free flowing layout which is ideal for entertaining; the kitchen is ideally located for indoor or outdoor dining. All the rooms are supplied with all the comforts of home. The large pool was a big hit for our six grand children as was the beautiful canal behind the house. The fished off the dock every day. And when they weren't fishing they were enjoying the many close by beaches. The house is also located on a quiet street which is a 5 minute walk from the quaint Venice Island downtown shopping and restaurants. With a name like Venice the Italian restaurants are particularly good. We also took advantage of the local art scene, golf and bike trail. We'll be back
