About the property

Large home with 3 BR/2BA and screened heated pool

Welcome to Paradise! Our home was completely remodeled in 2010 and features a huge covered pool area and lanai with heated pool. We have 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The kid's room features a full sized loft bed with twin sized bed underneath and a large closet. The queen bedroom has plenty of light and privacy and shares a full bath with the kid's room. The master suite has a king sized bed, open view of the pool and a huge walk in shower with waterfall shower head. There is also a separate 1/2 bath area and closet as well.

The kitchen features an oversized breakfast bar with 4 stools and brand new appliances including a dishwasher, stove, side by side fridge and microwave. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need for your vacation, minus the food.

There is a full sized eat-in area with dining room table, nicely tiled floors for easy clean up. Off of the kitchen is a slider door leading to the fully enclosed pool area. Recently screened and well appointed, relax in the pool area at either the outdoor dining area, the new recliners or the corner wicker 'conversation' area. The pool area is all brick pavers with custom potted plantings for your enjoyment.

Back inside the home, relax in the carpeted living room while you watch TV or simply read in the adjacent family room with matching french doors for privacy.

Our home also features a utility room with full sized front loading washer/dryer pair as well as all necessary beach equipment including chairs, toys, umbrella and a cooler.

About Deb Knowlton

We currently live in NH and found the Venice area in 2005 and immediately fell in love. It truly is Paradise! We love the variety of restaurants and the close proximity to Sarasota, the amazing Main Street/downtown area in Venice that is filled with boutiques, cafes and shops, and the array of perfect beaches, all within 10 minutes from our home.

Deb Knowlton purchased this house in 2009

Great rental property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental property - very clean and well-equipped, with a fantastic heated pool area. The location is excellent - not far from the beaches, bike trails and downtown Venice. The owners were very responsive and pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend this property!

Very nice and clean place . Good value and perfect if you like to bike . Easy access to the waterway bike trail which connects to the Legacy Trail and the Venice loop trail. Biked to town for lunch and even to attend church.

The house was well equipped and the owners were very nice as were the in- laws who live next door.

Heated Pool

  • 4 of 5

Great location south of Venice. Close to everything. Quiet neighborhood. Great place to stay. Very spacious and clean. Plenty of room with three bedrooms and two full baths. Love the private heated pool area. We have stayed at this property two times. Enjoyed both times. With the owners parents living next door everything is taken care of quickly.

  • 4 of 5

This is our third trip to Venice and our third rental. This home is older but is in the process of updating and was clean and well appointed. The in-laws of the owners live next door and were attentive to our needs. There is a nice barbecue grill. The home is conveniently located for driving to the town or beach or store and the movie theater is walking distance. The pool is quite lovely, heated and a real draw for people who love to swim. as we were told before we rented, internet on ipad is and out so if you need internet and are only briinging a mobile devce, be sure to have a mobile plan and update your data needs if necessary during your stay.

My Family and I stayed here for a week and everything was perfect. The house is in a very nice part of town, quite yet not far from everything you want on vacation. The pool was great for the kids and the house is large enough for privacy. The in-laws of the property owners live next door in case you have questions- Awesome people. I highly recommend and we would go back.
