Right Location

  • 4 of 5

Sharon's charming carriage house is in the perfect location. Close enough to walk to shopping, dining, Venice Ave and even the beach (if you don't mind a long walk). Good area for biking as well. The photos on the website give an accurate picture of the home. Enjoyed chatting with Sharon when we had the opportunity. We had great weather in March and look forward to returning to Venice next year.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Spent the month of April here, anything you could want has already been anticipated. Decorated so cozy and cheerful, just the right size for 2 people. Fully contained kitchen, easy to work in. Very private, loved the pool that we had all to ourselves. Nice extras, like washer, dryer, beach chairs, umbrella. We biked daily, close to restaurants and beaches. The biking paths and walking opportunities are wonderful. My husband and fell in love with Venice and this charming rental

Venice charm.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks at Sharon's rental, and were very pleased. The carriage rental is cozy and well equipped, you can see someone put a lot of thought into it. It is decorated charmingly. It was a close walk to downtown, and a short drive to the great beaches. We felt we had our privacy, yet enjoyed visiting too. It was great to have a washer and dryer available, and any problems that arose were dealt with promptly. Thank you Sharon for your hospitality !

Wonderful vintage Florida!

  • 5 of 5

It was very hard to leave this wonderful Venice apt after spending a most enjoyable month escaping our northern winter. Everything was more than we expected including the detail to decor and furnishings and absolutely spotless. The entire property was beautifully maintained and had that vintage Florida feel. Our kind owner was most attentive to any inquiry and also pointed us in the direction of many local events and activities. She was interesting and fun to chat with too. We loved being able to walk to shops and restaurants, and the beach for sunsets or relaxing was a three minute drive. The whole Venice area is quite lovely with so much to see and explore. We can not wait to return and would much rather stay here than any where else! Thank you Sharon for sharing your bit of paradise!
