About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Give yourself plenty of vacation choice. Book your vacation at 308 Circle Drive and you’re only a short 1 1/2 block walk from Venice’s private Gulf Shore Beach. Located on Venice Island and equally close and within walking distance is the Venice Pier and Sharkey's and the charming town center. It’s all within a quick walk or shorter drive. When not trotting here, there and everywhere filling your perfect vacation itinerary, this house is a comfortable retreat in a perfect location.

On slower days, your private heated pool and inviting interiors make a great excuse to stay in pajamas ‘til noon and relax to your heart’s content. Roomy accommodation sleeps up to eight guests. The high-quality furniture feels familiar and just like home. Added comforts are found throughout, like the corner entertainment unit ready for all the Jimmy Buffet you can throw at it.

Your long rectangular heated pool sits within a screened lanai area. Long enough for laps and a great size for pool games, this is where you could spend much of your vacation. Comfy furniture is provided on the handsome tiled deck and, in winter, a powerful pool heater kicks into action.

Indoors, find those little details and added extras that make you feel truly taken care of. Deep kitchen counters mean you’ll never struggle for space. Classic wooden ceiling beams lend a timeless feel and lend an air of importance to whatever you do - writing that novel or debating the morning news. An antique hutch desk wants you to set to with diary entries, postcards or checking email on the provided wireless Internet. With such gorgeous furniture pieces, even mundane tasks take on a vacation lightness.

New furniture in the bedrooms adds further decadence to three lovely spaces. The master suite boasts a massive king size bed and an LCD TV (for guilty pleasures - maybe endless Nick at Nite?). In the very private guest bedrooms, your friends and family will feel right at home. Both have comfortable queen beds and plenty of storage for their vacation best.

Throughout, buttery yellow walls are a perfect match for happy vacation moods. Large windows ensure the home is constantly filled with gorgeous Florida sunshine. The living room boasts two Papasan chairs to fight over - with high backs and deep seats they’re the perfect shape for curling into for a long nap or afternoon of reading. A comfy couch, flanked by two carved side tables creates a lovely entertaining space. Slanted ceilings add architectural interest, with long windows along the outside wall.

Pets are welcome at this Circle Drive property and Venice is a welcoming destination for dogs of all sizes. Stroll the historic streets of Old Venice together, stopping for coffee at any number of sidewalk cafes. Energetic dogs can get their fix at the enormously popular Brohard Paw Park. A ‘dog amusement park’ cum dog beach, it’s a great place to make local friends and get better acquainted with the area.

Locals and tourists alike can agree on a great sunset destination - Venice Pier and Sharky’s restaurant. At sun down the area comes into its own and is a superb gathering point for drinks and live music.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was a very pleasant stay in the house - clean with thoughtful details. The location is great. You will need to drive everywhere (or bike if it's not too hot) but it's a 7 minute drive South to Caspersen Beach and 2 minute drive to Sharky's. If you head north it's 5 minutes to the Venice main street, 7 minutes to Venice beach and not quite 10 to the pier to watch the sunset. You've also got a main commercial street with grocery stores, gas, etc within close proximity. Quiet, clean, convenient. Outdoor space - both the pool area and the backyard - were fantastic. Garage parking for one car was very helpful. I also appreciate that the air conditioning could be adjusted within a range. One suggested improvement: was told by the rental agency there was no recycling but appears that there was recycling pickup... would be good to advocate recycling and be clear on what can be recycled (keep our oceans clean!).

The feedback that I have with house has more to do with the rental agency managing the property. The fees were extremely high in comparison to other houses and the value of the service. I'm not sure what VRBO allows but I normally book through Airbnb and this is the first time I've seen the volume of fees, including a non-refundable security deposit (!). I booked this house only after the rate dropped and because I was in a pinch. I'm not sure if it was my calling and negotiating or if the VRBO algorithm kicked in but I'm sure the owners felt the hit on the lower rate, not the rental agency. While the agency was available for questions via email over a holiday weekend and responded quickly, I generally was emailed too often and with information on the area that wasn't that insightful. There was an archaic web portal and app with relatively useless information. I was also sent an intense rental agreement separately from VRBO which should have been handled within VRBO. The preferred/suggested insurance offering did not align with the one that VRBO suggested (and I purchased) earlier in the booking process. Either VRBO needs to enforce participating rental agencies to have a more integrated process with caps on fees or this rental agency just needs to start their own online booking website to justify the additional overhead.

I was VERY pleased to see a note on the fridge that the owners will be taking over from the rental agency this fall. Now I will definitely rent this property again and I recommend it to Venice visitors!

A great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 308 Circle drive and celebrated my Mother's 90th bday. I have two local siblings along with my mother in the Venice area. We surprised her with my family and my other two brother and sister for a party. My mom was totally surprised by us all be in together. The home had everything we needed and was very clean and inviting. We would recommend this home to anyone looking for a home away from home

We were very happy with the house the neatness and everything you needed for supplies for the weeks stay.acouple of things could have been a little nicer like the pool and the black dirt around the pool area,back bushes against the home could have been trimmed,screen door pump broken and screen out of the track,window tinting on the door wall was peeled mostly off.all of these did not affect our stay it I just thought you should know.You have a very beautiful home and if get the chance to come back we sure would.thanks,Mike Lutz

Venice - Circle Drive

  • 4 of 5

Over all the home was in great shape and the fact that we actually had access to the garage was nice too. The only problem for us was the taste of the water but that was easily solved with bottled water.Since it was a dog friendly property it would have been nice if the back fenced in area had a bit more grass as our dogs liked being back there while we were swimming but the paving stones would get way too hot for them (or us) to walk on in the afternoon.
