About Claude Gauthier

We are Karen and Claude Gauthier. We have 3 wonderful children. This is our vacation home which we love to share with you.

Claude Gauthier purchased this house in 2009

Why Claude Gauthier chose Florida South West

Venice is the undiscovered gem of Florida. The center of town has a few blocks of historic landscape and unique little shops. The amenities is what attracted us the most. Everything is new and state of the art and always available. It's a wonderful community with a wide range of age groups. We make new friends with every visit. It was love at first site!

What makes this house unique

We play tennis most mornings followed by a nice swim in the pool and breakfast on the lanai. Downtown Venice is quaint, still in it's original format, not over-commercialized. We love to go window shopping there, stop for ice cream and go to Venice beach.

Great Venice Location

Beautiful Stoneybrook location - perfect size for us, and convenient to beach, Venice; pool and clubhouse are the best! Owner is most accommodating and helpful. We'll be back, soon we hope!

A Nice vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for April. The house had everything you need and was well appointed. We found the Stoneybrook subdivision well cared for and quiet and all the neighbors very friendly. Venice is a perfect spot centrally located and easy access to other areas. Orlando, Sarasota, Ft Myers, Naples are all withing easy traveling distance. Venice has a real nice historic downtown. Any questions we had through our stay were promptly answered by Claude and he was very easy to deal with.

We plan on coming back.

Perfect location and a perfect home! Went to Venice for the first time and found the community to be centrally located with a gorgeous pool and beautiful beaches nearby. The house had everything we were promised and met all our needs. The beds were extremely comfortable and each room was fully equipped and everything was easily accessible. The owner was kind, courteous and helpful. This was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend renting this comfortable, clean, spacious home.

An accurate description of a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love the Venice area - many wonderful restaurants, beautiful beaches, fun shopping (and so many thrift/consignment shops to wile away your time when you want to avoid the sun!) - so when we encountered this property, we booked. What a beautiful home! It's very spacious, with a very large kitchen/dining/sitting area, and with all of the conveniences of home. The kitchen is well equipped, with microwave, dishwasher and all the other important appliances, as well as dinnerware for many, utensils, pots and pans - even a blender. The living room has a large flat screen TV with a dvd player and a library of dvds that the host family has generously left for our viewing pleasure. We enjoyed the spacious lanai for morning breakfast as well as cocktail hour.

The master bedroom has a very comfortable king-size bed with a spacious master bath en suite. There are two additional bedrooms, and another bathroom.

The home was immaculately clean, and cleaning articles are in the laundry room should they be required during your stay. Of course, the washer/dryer are a wonderful convenience when you have a lengthy stay (or children!).

The owners are helpful and quickly responsive should you have a question, and you may believe them when they say that your comfort is of importance to them.
