Flamingo Home, 3 Bedrooms, Pet Friendly, Sleeps 10, Private Heated Pool

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 - 28 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

As you might expect, the private backyard at Flamingo House brims with color and life. Palms and tropical vegetation add lovely contrast against the bright turquoise blue of your private pool. Under a screened lanai, the pool and deck area is a fantastic place to play together. Patio furniture includes sun beds for developing a great vacation tan.

Retreat to the living room solo or en masse, where a massive sectional sofa rewards tired feet after hours of shark-tooth-hunting. Newly updated with an LCD flat-screen TV, you might find you like this living room more than your own at home. Chair-rail finishing adds a touch of elegance, as do classic pieces of furniture and an inviting armchair.

An added spot for casual hanging out is the family room, where comfy sofa doubles as a queen sleeper sofa for two. Tiled floors are clean and crisp, exactly what you want for a vacation spent in flip-flops and bare feet. A large white dining table and six chairs sit opposite, with a breakfast bar just beside. This clever open-plan means everyone can entertain diverse itineraries (napping, Facebook, cooking, reading, TV, etc.) while still enjoying shared company.

The modern kitchen gleams with white cabinetry and crisp countertops. Everything is provided in terms of cookware and nearby shops mean you’ll easily fill up the spacious cupboards. To beat the mid-day sun, look no further than your idyllic outdoor living room. Screened and fully shaded, this lanai has patio seating and an outside dining table. Seated under the ceiling fan you’ll love playing cards together here over a pitcher of iced tea. The grassed backyard just outside is fenced for pets to safely play.

Embrace your inner Parrot Head (everyone’s got one) in the indoor cocktail area. Bright tropical prints, plants and a bar table mean you only need put the lime in the coconut...or whatever your preferred recipe. A clock on the wall even marks 5 O’ clock.

Choose to accommodate a nuclear family in the master bedroom or one couple with room to spare. A king bed and queen-sized sleeper sofa afford lots of flexibility. An overhead ceiling fan and LCD TV create your own hotel-quality space - but better (you don’t have to share the pool with anyone)! Two more guests will find beachy bliss in the second bedroom. A queen bed shows off ocean blues and greens, cleverly accented with seaside accents. Space is comfortable and polished, with a large dresser and brand new TV.

Bedroom three has two twin beds set far apart on handsome tiled floors. In neutrals with elegant furniture, the room will equally suit adults as it will children used to smaller beds. A master bath and full guest bath are kept shiny clean with high-end finishings to boot.

In total, ten guests will find vacation happiness under the roof of Flamingo House. Be sure to bring your pets, especially your water dogs.

A seven block walk to the humans’ beach, dogs will love their very own piece of the ocean - on offer at nearby Brohard Paw Park. They’ll think it’s heaven and will love you even more. Available parking at the house includes a large 2 car garage and room for boat parking, with access to the boat ramp just seven blocks away. How many dolphins will you spot?

Our month in venice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Flamingo House for the month of October.We had another couple along with our two dogs.The back yard was great, the dogs loved it ,especially when the squirrel came to visit. Too bad the orange tree was empty except for one orange. <br/> The inside of the house was very clean and we liked the lay out. We had a problem with the water softner.I called Kevin and the next morning the water company was there to fix it.We all enjoyed the pool especially my wife, she was in at least twice every day.<br/> The one area that could use a cleaning is the sides and the roof of the pool,otherwise every thing was very acceptable.<br/> We enjoyed our visit to Venice and would not hesitate to return.

Needs Repair and Cleaning!

  • 2 of 5

We rented the house during the month of December 2016.

There were a few glaring incidents of unbelievably poor cleaning by your housekeeping service. Here they are -

*Someone (renters? cleaning workers?) used the toilet brush in the master bathroom as a plunger (and there was a plunger in the other bathroom). It was coated with fecal matter. We purchased rubber gloves to clean the fecal matter off the floor toward the back of the toilet where the brush was stored. We discarded the brush.

*The kitchen sink was coated with something (coffee? rust?). We purchased cleanser to scrub the stain from the sink (almost the entire bottom of the sink!)

*The aluminum foil lining on the stove's drip pans had not been changed. We were welcomed by the cooked on sludge from the prior renters. We purchased aluminum foil and changed the linings.

Outside of the main home, there were several areas that should have been cleaned that weren't (and some really still aren't).

*There was a thick coat of mold on the HVAC in the garage. Fortunately, when the crew was here to fix the Internet/TV problem, they called in someone to scrub it off.

*The Florida Room tiles had not been cleaned for a long time. The Florida Room is supposed to be part of the living space. We had to hose it off and scrub it with a broom before we could "live" with it and not drag dirt into the house.

*The pool deck was and still is dirty. We purchased a pool brush and scrubbed it off early in the rental.

*The bottom of the pool screen is covered in mold.

You keep $150 per rental for "damage repair." We suggest that you use it to repair the screens in the queen bed room (holes covered with scotch tape) and screen on the door to the pool. We tried to tape it with duck tape, but it didn't hold. There's also carpet torn by the merge with the kitchen tile. It has carpet pins sticking up, which caught on bare feet.

Kudos to Steve and Jane Campo who worked persistently over the course of two days to get the TVs and Internet working....the initial problem apparently was the owner did not pay the bill.

The beds were comfortable. The fenced in yard was perfect for our dog.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to cook. However, the cutlery is dangerously dull and rusty.

We found it challenging to figure out the outlet GFI systems because many didn't work. However, there was an adequate number of outlets and good lighting.

Not worth the money we spent

  • 2 of 5

I'll start with the good. The house had a perfect layout for our needs. My parents stayed in the master while my husband, I and children stayed on the other side of the house. The kitchen was good. The pool was good, along with the streened porch and the best part was the fenced in backyard! It was great for our dog. It had nice working washer and dryer and an oversize garage. The driveway was huge as well. Once the traffic died down at night it was very quite

Now to the bad/ugly..

1. The decor needs to be updated and cleaned. Very outdated. Way too many pictures hanging and the carpet all needs to be ripped up and put matching tile down. A nice coat of paint would help

2. The big slidding blinds were broken and in the garage when we arrived. Many had been "fixed" with staples. I also "fixed" them with tape so people couldn't see in

3. The water tastes AWFUL! It was like I was drinking salt water. And no water pressure and it takes 3 min to get the water hot

4. Pay your freaking Internet/cable bill! I called and found out the owner hadent paid it and $600 was due. That was super annoying. No tv and Internet for days

5. It would be nice to know if there was a light in the pool? It needs a pool cleaner device that runs on the bottom

6. All bedding smiled like bo! None of us slept on the pillowes bc it smelled so bad. My advice, throw away all pillows and buy new ones along with protectors for them.

7. Bathrooms need updating.. Badly!

8. I'm pretty sure that the bath rugs weren't cleaned upon our arrival. The fibers were all smashed down. Which in turn makes you wonder if anything else was cleaned?!

9. The patio table was cleaned along with the tile outside bc it was super nasty

10. It would be nice to know when trash day is and what items need to go into what recycling bins. Also need to know when pool person and yard maintenance was coming. I wrote down and left on fridge for others.

11. The street this house is on is a race track! The cars are driving at least 50 mph or more. It's freaking crazy. Loud street traffic. Btw the speed limit is 30. We were the only ones that actually drove that speed

12. All glasses , sharp knifes and ect need to be replaced and or added too.

13. I pulled out a big soft blanket from the linen closet and a cup of sand fell all over the floor! Once again makes you wonder if anything was cleaned before we arrived.

Venice Flamingo House

  • 4 of 5

Great location in a community with a boat ride to the barrier island to collect sharks teeth.

Clean. Needs updated living room to a more Florida furnishings and flooring.

Pictures are deceiving with shots of the same room with furniture moved around!

8 lights bulbs burned out!

Pool area and walkways need to be pressure sprayed. Screen/cage needs to be fixed or replaced.

Pool heater thermostat needs to be replaced. We did not use the pool much-too cold.

Comcast was out one day. I called. The management company owed $512.51! I emailed/called. The bill was paid. Internet and TV were out for a few hours.

Despite these items, we had a pleasant stay.

our June vacation

  • 5 of 5

All and all, a super great stay. Although there happened to be lots of rain, but we probably needed the time to rest. Would we do it again? Absolutely! Great location, quiet and peaceful,everything within a five minute drive. Loved the ferry ride to the best beach around.
