About James and Laura Wilson
James and I believe in experiences and spend as much as time possible travelling to get out of the cold Michigan weather. After travelling to the island of Venice a decade ago to visit his parents we decided this was a special place and we wanted to spend more time here. Once a year turned to twice a year and after coming down 6 times in 12 months we realized it was time to establish a future. This is our retirement home, and we are both thrilled and honored to share it with you because we have a few years to contribute before we call it quits and move down for good! There are many, many amazing places to travel but we have never felt as much at home than Venice. We hope you love it as much as we do! Laura and James

Old time Venice at it's finest
Wonderful little house. Absolutely everything you could want or need right there. Fun interior. It was the perfect Venice location. After many years of coming to this area visiting my parents, it was nice to come back and see old friends and make some new ones. Hopefully, we'll be back.
Lovely Venice Island Home!
Laura and James were wonderful! Responsive to and caring towards our needs. Beautiful, newly renovated tastfully decorated cozy home, with split 2 bedroom and two full bathroom layout. A must for our needs. Great location with beautiful beaches within walking distance and plenty of restaurants and boutique shops. We highly recommend. We will be back!
Charlene, thank you so much for the great review...James and I are so glad that you guys enjoyed your stay, and had a great time in Venice. It was our pleasure having you stay in our home, and we can't wait to have you back again soon!
Delightful Home on Venice Island
This home on San Marco Drive in Venice (on the island) sits back off the road for added privacy and neighborhood perspective. It's a recently renovated two bedroom - two bath home with all the modern amenities. Furnishings and décor are eclectic and it's just a fun place to spend some vacation time. The location is great, especially if you like to walk the neighborhoods of the Island, walk to the beaches or to the center of town. All major services are within minutes and restaurants abound. We found the owners very responsive to several questions and one minor plumbing issue we had with a clogged disposal. We recommend this property without reservation!! It was a great place to escape our New England winter!
Thanks for the nice review Richard! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! Hopefully we'll host you again soon.
Clean and comfortable
Had a great time . Property well managed and comfortable. Close to everything we wanted to do. Beaches, tiki bars, shopping. It couldn’t have been better for us .
Thank you Richard...I know you didn't get to stay long, but we're so glad you had a great time in Venice, and that our home worked out well for you!!! Take care! James & Laura.
Wonderful cottage in great location
What a well-decorated cottage with every convenience of home! Very clean and stocked with more utensils, small appliances, pots & pans, and gadgets than any place we have rented before. There's a brand new BBQ grill. These owners thought of everything - there's even a first aid kit! Only a couple of blocks from downtown area shops & restaurants, short drive (or walk) to beach, convenient to grocery and other shopping, and it is situated in an area of Old Venice that's perfect for walking around the neighborhood on the sidewalks, biking in the reserved bicycle lanes, or just lounging in the fenced-in back yard. It was very comfy inside and outside. Husbands will especially appreciate the wide range of cable channels, including an array of sports stations, plus movie channels, too. The owners were great to work with and concerned that we had everything we needed. Can't say enough good things. We loved it!
Thank you so much for your kind words Marie & Bob. You guys were a pleasure to have as guests. Thank you for all your good tips, and Bob's help. We'd love to have you guys stay with us again. And, special thanks to Bob swapping out the grill tank so that the next guests would have a full tank to use...that was very kind of him! Take care, and all the best to you both! James & Laura.
Great Place to Stay!
We stayed here in early January 2018...love the Venice Island area and this house had a great location. James and Laura have decorated their home nicely which is very welcoming. We also liked the long driveway which gave a little more privacy when sitting outside. The fenced-in yard was great for our dogs. The house is a short bike ride to the beach, Sharkey's and shopping. James and Laura were always quick to respond and went above and beyond when I left a Christmas gift in the closet...they shipped it for me!! Highly recommend this great house!!
Thank you for your kind review Tracy! We're so glad you had a great time in Venice! You're welcome at San Marco any time!!! Cheers!
