"After searching the state of Florida in the years following our retirement, we finally found our ideal getaway at Riviera House. The home is comfortably and tastefully decorated, with everything we needed for an ideal vacation. The owners are prompt in responding to any needs their renters might have, though there were few. We thoroughly enjoyed the many shops and fine restaurants that Venice has to offer, as well as its proximity to Sarasota. However, our favorite thing of all was relaxing by our onsite pool. It is not easy to locate such an ideal property. We look forward to vacationing there again in the future."

"This was one of the most comfortable places I've stayed in Florida. A spacious and clean 3 bedroom home. The lanai and swimming pool were so refreshing to enjoy in the day time or of a warm evening. There was nothing about our stay here that we did not appreciate. Thanks to the owner who handled our reservation and made it so easy. Come one. Come all!"

"The location of the Sandpiper House is awesome! It is a very quiet neighborhood and one walking minute to the beach! Downtown is super charming and the people very friendly. Enjoyed eating at the Daiquiri Deck and Sharky's...all within walking distance. Had fun looking for shark teeth! Even though the home is older, it is well maintained. The only downfall would be pet stains on the carpeting from previous renters. Would recommend getting them professionally cleaned. However, we would stay here again in the future! :)"

"The owner for this property is extremely helpful and honest. I use a wheelchair and have a hard time finding vacation homes that work for me. I prefer homes to crowded condo complexes or hotels but most aren't accessible. When I book a vacation I am always sure to indicate that I am in a wheelchair and require doorways that have adequate room to maneuver my chair. I have had many negative vacation experiences because people think because a home is one level it is wheelchair accessible which is not the case. I have even arrived at homes where the doorways are too narrow for me to even get into the bathroom! This home is quite lovely and the view is gorgeous so I was hoping to rent this house. I contacted the owner and instead of saying that it would work (as so many others do) he went into the home and inspected it through the eyes of someone that uses a wheelchair and even took additional pictures of the bathroom for me. Unfortunately it will not work for me but if so I would be booking immediately. I have never experienced such timeliness of response or honesty from an owner, most are more concerned with lining their pocketbooks rather than seeing to the comfort of their guests. I truly appreciate the personal care and helpfulness that I received."
