Relaxing beach vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. Pool. Beach. Downtown. Even a laundry.

Pool was steps away. It was heated and pleasantly larger than I expected. Although it does "close" at night, I did enjoy getting in a couple dozen laps under the stars; that was really nice. The one gotcha is make sure you keep the pool key with you as the gate locks every time.

The beach was great. Shallow for a long time. It is a private beach. This means that only folks that were from the complex are able to use the beach are; always tons of room to pick a great spot. Get a shade umbrella or a beach tent thing as there is no shade. We were there during turtle season and saw a turtle laying eggs at Caspersen beach. There were two older beach chairs with the unit.

There are two great breakfast/lunch places walking distance away. I think they are called "Lucky Dog" and "Blue Island". We walked to them a couple times, but mostly drove :)

Laundry is very close. Bring some high efficiency soap tabs and dryer sheets. They are for sale there, but we like using our own stuff. Machines take quarters.

The unit was plenty big for two people. Nicely decorated. Nice queen bed. Mattress seems to be newer. Comfy. Dressers have room to properly unpack. We had luggage on the floor for a bit before we unpacked and although a bit tight, it worked fine. Kitchen stove is a small 4 burner, it worked great for two people. Fridge was clean, and cold. At the end of the day, it's exactly as described in the listing, don't expect an expansive bedroom suite from a 5 star hotel and you'll be very happy :)

We were very happy with our stay and would do it again!

Great home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this home! The space was super clean. It had all the supplies we needed to like a beach umbrella, cooler, pots and pans for cooking and more! Some days we would drive to Siesta Keys beach. It is about twenty minute drive and the sand there is the softest sand in the world. Other days we would relax in the pool. It is right outside of the home! Our kids loved playing with all the noodles and floating devices. We had to do some laundry on our trip and luckily there is a laundry service right in the building! This is a perfect place and we felt like the owners really took a lot of time to make this house perfect. All the tiny details like the baskets in the kitchen and the decor made this place stand out from many other homes in Florida. If you want to go look for some shark teeth, you can literally walk two minutes to the beach and find some really great ones along with lots of seashells. Make sure you talk to the neighbors and locals from this place because they are so welcoming and are always ready to help! We just love this place !

Outstanding condo with private beach access!!

  • 5 of 5

We were greatly surprised to see this condo we had rented sight unseen was in immaculate shape and looked just like the pictures online and it was a pleasure not to have to deal with any negative experiences or surprises. The pool is huge and we really did get a lot of enjoyment out of it. The private beach access is such a treat to have at this location also. The bed was comfortable and the overall ambiance was superb to say the least! Leon the owner was also very accommodating and very attentive to our needs and making our stay a very very positive experience. We will be back...guaranteed!!!

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.

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.
