A paradise for two

  • 5 of 5

This condominium complex has only 4 poolside units like this. The rest of the efficiency units is located in a two story building where we had stayed before and they don't have as nice countertop space in a kitchen area. A divider is a great feature in this unit; it makes us feel like there are two rooms - bedroom and living. All appliances are new. This is the closest unit to a picnic area which feels like a personal backyard. It is very safe and quiet - we love it! And it's only 5 minute drive to downtown Venice. We enjoyed bicycle trails that are all over this beautiful historic town. Although we spent most of our time at the beach, a huge pool next to our unit is a big plus. We'll definitely be back again.

Best described as a 50's motel room.

  • 1 of 5

Stayed in the good old USofA so many times over the past 40 years - have never experienced anything qiute like this place, it is quite the poorest accommodation I have come across in my travels to the USA. The living space is tiny with 2 office chairs and a wonky table that should have been confined to a landfill site years ago. The kitchen (kitchen??) is part of the tiny living space, to open the oven door fully you have to move the fridge freezer. Then there's the bathroom (bathroom??) so small you can't turn around in it. The towels provided were disgraceful - we went out and bought fresh, and no, we didn't leave them. To sum up we paid way over the odds and had to share the property with many coakroches (who didn't contribute to the rental). Never again, we left early in the rental period and put this one down to experience.

Owner's Response: After numerous attempts to communicate with guests, it's very disappointing to learn that they have not enjoyed their stay especially when it came as a surprise to me ten days after they left. I'd be thankful if the guests could reach out to me and let me know what I could do differently with my listing to better illustrate my place. I'd be grateful if they would reach out to me period. I tried to communicate with these guests so many times using text messaging and email in addition to VRBO site without any response whatsoever. The only communication we had was on the day of arrival when the guests were leaving one of the best hotels in town and complained about it. It was also very unusual to have guests arriving same day as soon as they booked my vacation rental. My best guess they did not take time to read a description of the property. However, the listing clearly states that the studio is 300 sq. ft. which a size of a 4 star hotel room. A fully equipped kitchen is exactly like on the listing's photo as well as the bathroom. This newly remodeled property is located on the private beach and considered as a bargain for $71 per night. I wish I knew about cockroaches when the guests saw them. It would have been dealt with immediately by pest control service managed by our condominium association. Thanks for letting me know; pest control frequency increase is already in place.

Wonderful experience, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Venice villas every year for several years and this was the first time we stayed in this condo and with this owner. The owner was very responsive and accommodating. The room was decorated beautifully and had everything you could possibly need for your stay. The location was great, end unit by pool and bbq area which allowed us to easily setup our grill each night plus the bonus of having the WiFi signal from the pool area. Many other units you do not have WiFi or can't pickup the office / pool WiFi signal. Even being in front of pool we found room to be quiet. Also the way the unit is situated, it doesn't get direct sun right in front of room which helps keep room cooler plus can actually sit out front of unit and not roast, another plus. We plan to make this unit our place we stay when we return each year.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

I am very happy I found this unit! Wonderful owner who answered every question I had immediately. He even called to check on my stay. Perfect location for pool and beach. Entire property kept very clean and tidy. I stayed alone while visiting a friend who lives in Venice and felt very comfortable and safe in the area. Would not say there is anything within walking distance as far as shopping or restaurants especially during the heat of the day although close by car. The unit is an end unit with no units above you. Very quiet and peaceful. Practically had the entire pool to myself at times. The owners had everything I could possibly need there including beach chairs beach towels and a fully stocked kitchen. Even watched a movie one evening that they supplied. The unit was the perfect size for two. Shower was great. The bed was comfortable for one, anyway. I certainly hope this unit is available next time I visit Venice. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to leave a review. Every feedback helps me gauge how my vacation rental caters to the needs of my guests. My goal is not just to rent my studio out, but also ensure that it meets guests' expectations.

What a pleasant surprise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this studio few years ago and it took us awhile to realize that this is the same one. New owners completely redecorated this place. Love hand crafted antique chest / coffee-table / ottaman. New bed and matresses are very comfortable. This sudio is still very small, but good enough for two of us. It is very clean. This place had everything we needed for our stay. Location is great; less than 5 minute walk to the beach. We are definately coming back again.

ACTUAL AMOUNT OF STARS TO REVIEW WOULD BE A (0) ZERO

  • 1 of 5

As a vacation rental this is a failure. Upon arrival to our 300 sq. foot unit we found that the owners had been living there and still had (stuff) in the unit. Stuff meaning 2 trunks (So heavy one could not be moved) and a small trunk and a personal cooler along with 8-10 baskets above cabinets loaded with personal belongings. Notice there are no pictures of bathroom or the large Refrigerator which had an open jar of pickles, honey and teriyaki sauce (which I think would be a health department issue) This takes up more space.Trust me if you need to go to bathroom you cant sit facing the wall, its to close when you sit like riding side saddle.Two extra chairs in room which is not necessary. We could not get to small armoire with chair in the way. As a vacation beach rental I am concerned with the ethics of this owner. Check with other units before spending time in this unit We lasted a day and a half and moved to a different unit. No refund either as this owner rented immediately to another couple on Dec. 29, 2014

Owner's Response: Our place is very small and affordable. It is cute and tastefully decorated. We have guests who stay in our studio for 3 - 4 months and they keep coming back. Unfortunately, we've got little time to enjoy our place since it is rented a lot. Decorative baskets do hold our belongings which are nicely stored on top of the upper kitchen cabinets, out of the way. The locked hand crafted chest is a piece of art; many people are impressed with it. This chest, referred to in the review as a trunk, serves as a coffee table and it is not intended to be moved around. Missing pictures of bathroom and refrigerator is constructive feedback and really appreciated; the next time we are able to enjoy our place, I will take the pictures and add them to the listing. We notified our cleaning staff to make sure that the refrigerator is completely empty, thank you for informing us of this oversight, please know that it has been addressed. As far as ethics concerned, when our guest informed us that his expectations were not met, we went out of our way to find a larger place for him, even though we could not rent our place to other guests at the last minute. And we DID NOT! We found one owner who had a larger place available, and gave the guest the contact information. Many statements made in the guest's review have no ground because they are based on assumptions and questioning my ethics is the biggest one. We always do our best to ensure our guests have a worry-free vacation and enjoy their stay to the fullest.
