About Mark Hetherington
We like to travel and owned long term rentals. We thought we should try short term rentals because we can relate with our own travel experiences. We prefer to stay in a house rental than in a hotel or motel, especially for a longer stay. We were tired of hotel experiences: maids carts going down hallways; being too close to an elevator; stairway or ice machine, people walking and talking just outside of your hotel door; waiting hours to get an extra towel; and standing in line to check in or check out.
Mark Hetherington purchased this House in 2017
Why Mark Hetherington chose Venice Gardens
The house is located on a more than 1/4 acre lot, in a neighborhood of homes on large lots, that gives space between neighboring houses. It is 3 minutes to the main thoroughfare of Venice, US Hwy 41, called Tamiami Trail where most all stores, restaurants and services are located. A wide selection of different beaches are within a 20 minute drive, with the closest beaches less than 10 minutes. Its almost like taking your home with you while on vacation.

Venice 3 bedroom house with pool - with some updates.
This house is a good size with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with adequate closets and pantry. It appeared to have some newer updates such as wooden and tile floors in several rooms, large fridge and built in microwave & small island in kitchen. It had an average style decor - which seemed a little barren inside and out. The beds were all comfortable, and the kitchen is spacious & open to the dining area and family room (with large cable TV). There is also a spacious laundry room off of the kitchen. We did not use the unheated pool since the weather turned cooler during March. There were several outdoor lounge chairs and a BBQ grill but all surfaces were concrete with no vegetation or colour so seemed very stark.
We were disappointed with a couple of things upon our arrival - we discovered that the well water has a yellow-colour with noticeable odor (in the tub, shower). Also, the house had a musty odour upon our arrival - which improved (after several days.... if we kept the windows open and also used a plug in air freshener. ) We also found that the bathroom tubs and vanities were not completely clean before we arrived. We notified the house owner of our observations but no solution was suggested, except to open the windows. The overall location of the house was great since it was close to 41 and Center Rd or Jacarandah.....close to many stores and other amenities. We have stayed in many other rental homes in the past .....this one was spacious but average in other comparisons (for the price we paid).
Great Home in a Great area
This home was perfect for my wife and I to visit with my daughter,son-in-law and 3 grandkids who live in Venice. The home had 3 large bedrooms, a nice open kitchen with living room. Everything worked fine, no issues. The pool and the backyard area is nice and enclosed with plenty of chairs and room to entertain my family. The home is close to everything. Rt 41 is just down the road on one side with more shopping and stores on the other side going down Valencia Dr. I am hoping to return again in May for 2 weeks for my grandsons High school graduation. Thanks for the perfect rental for us. Hope to return
Thanks for a great vacation!
