About Georgiy

We visited Venice in 2014 and fell in love with this hidden jewel on the Gulf Coast. We purchased our Venice Retreat shortly after and enjoyed it for 2 years prior to relocating to Florida from New England. We are a very active family and have found many attractions in Venice all of which are available all year round. We love this beautiful laid back town which has beautiful beaches (great amenities and plenty of parking), easy acces to boat ramps, kayaking, biking, as well as all of the endless cultural events during the winter/spring season.

Georgiy purchased this house in 2014

Why Georgiy chose Venice

We fell in love with this house the moment we saw it. It is located on the corner of Valencia and Bradenton Rd surrounded by beautifull southern pines and mature native oak trees with hanging spanish moss. We enjoted this cozy cottage for over 2 years as our vacation home prior to relocating to Florida. The house was updated with many personal touches to have a pleasant and enjoyable time.

Loved the retreat in the bird sanctuary of Venice

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we stepped into the house, we were impressed with the furnishings and appointments. Since we were there for a "retreat" to read and relax, we were especially taken by all the spaces where we could do just that--grab a book and relax. Our favorite space, the one where we spent the most time, was the lanai. With the shade from the trees and the breeze from the fans, this was a perfect place for us. Since we like to cook, the kitchen was an added bonus, and though the tap water was not for us to drink, the large fridge kept all our beverages ice cold. (As a matter of fact, we left a bag of ice unopened in the freezer, having no need for it.) If I might add one personal item, because I love to rock, either a rocking chair or swing would be the one addition I would most appreciate.

One final note, whenever we had a question on where to find something or how to work something, George was quick to answer the phone and our questions.

All in all, it was just what we were looking for.

Great Location, Well Equipped House

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house, everything we needed was there. They allowed us use of their beach chairs and cooler, washer and dryer! Beds were made when we got there. Well maintained house, we loved the screened in patio on the back of the house. Without a doubt, would stay here again! Owner/Manager took great care in making sure our stay was great. Very responsive whenever we had questions prior to arriving and also while there.

nice house in pleasant tree lined neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house is nice, well appointed and very clean. We had all of the conveniences of home. The location is VERY convenient to everything we like to do. There are numerous golf courses that are open to the public within 15 minutes drive. The beach, that is fantastic is just 4 miles away. Numerous restaurants, shopping and entertainment venues are close by. The home has a gas grill that we regularly used for outdoor cooking. It was a good value. We plan to return next year.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

This is a spacious ranch in a quiet, friendly neighborhood. The lanai is large and comfortable. The backyard was quite small. It is close to several beaches, bike and walking trails, and about ten minutes to historic downtown Venice. It is near a great selection of restaurants. The owner was available at all times to meet our needs.
