Great, clean & homey
Very nice place with nice pool & view. Owner was very responsive to our every question. Very comfortable. My bed was nice & firm - just the way I like it! Would definitely come here again.
We enjoyed our stay! We needed a place to stay for our Daughters Graduation from Nursing School, and this was perfect. The House was clean and they responded quickly when we needed assistance. I've already recommended it to someone else. Thank you for a nice stay.

Excellent Family Vacation!
The Whispering Lake House was a great fit for our family of four. The home was well equipped with everything you should need to feel right at home, and the pool was a hit for our whole family. The home was also conveniently located for an easy drive to any of the local beaches. Greg was also very responsive to any questions we had during our stay.
We were here for Spring Break, and while there were plenty of tourists around, the Venice area was nowhere near as busy as some of the other cities on the Gulf coast. We had a great time, and I would highly recommend this home for other families looking for a relaxing Florida vacation.
Wonderful experience and location
Loved the location, especially if you are a golfer, like my wife and are. Everything is close by - beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, friends in the area, and the golf courses. Safe location if that is a concern of yours. Bed is comfortable if you are wondering. Air conditioning worked excellently, also if you are wondering. Heated pool and lanai were great, as was the bird watching. Better than we had anticipated. House was very comfortable. Greg is very organized and extremely responsive. I felt like I was dealing with a friend. We have renewed to come back next year. Need I say more.
Thank you for your nice words and we are very glad indeed that you and your wife loved the Venice Gardens with its natural beauty. It is truly wonderful to have an opportunity to enjoy watching birds and we love that too.
The Whispering Lake House is welcoming you!
All the best!
See you next year!
Just what we had hoped for!
Well kept home in a great location - close to beaches and grocery store. We loved the pool and covered porch with the option to close the porch in. Greg was super helpful and quick to respond. Very helpful! Highly recommend a holiday here!
Thank you very much for your kind words. It makes us happy that you enjoyed your stay. You have been a great guest, and thank you for taking care so well for our Whispering Lake House.
Great location! Clean home!
We enjoyed our stay here! The location is great! Close to the beach and shopping! We really enjoyed the pool and views of the lake behind the home. Lots of birds and little lizards to watch! The home was clean and well stocked with anything needed. Greg was quick to answer when we called with a question!
The only reason we are not giving it 5 stars: the front porch screen door was broken, as well as a pocket door in the master bath. Along with some of the lanai doors. I'm sure being a rental, things happen, just a little frustrating.
Overall, we had a great stay and would stay again if in the Venice or surrounding areas!!
Thank you for your review.
We were pleased to know that you liked your stay at our Whispering Lake House, and that you enjoyed the pool, the lake view and birdwatch from the lanai.
We openheartedly welcome your feedback because we put our efforts to make our guests feel like home away from home. If you had let us know about your concerns right away we would have addressed that immediately.
After we received your review, RIGHT AWAY we have repaired the front porch door. I am happy to tell you that the ensuite bathroom pocket door had been fixed. Lanai external doors vinyl had been replaced.
In addition pool cage had been rescreened entirely and this new screen even improved the lake view from the Lanai. We have also added a nice seating area to the lanai with a couch and chairs.
Lanai ceiling fans had been replaced with brand new outdoor fans and curb appearance was improved with new stone edging and nice tropical plants in turquoise pots.
Thank you for your honest feedback and we are welcoming your family to stay with us during your next trip to Venice.
