                                                                  The house was very clean, very well kept and we enjoyed our long weekend stay very much. The walk to the beach and Sharky's Beach Bar & Grill was short and very convenient. The pool cleaners came on Saturday afternoon which meant we had to get out of the pool and stay out for awhile - sort of ill-timed - but other than that everything was perfect!

                                                                  Everything expected and more!

                                                                  Lisa C.Bristol, CT

                                                                  Our stay in Venice at the villa sorento was everything we could have hoped for. A group of 9 people fit comfortably for a long weekend away. It was very clean and well maintained. The heated pool was perfect especially after spending the day at the beach. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms were nice. It’s a short drive and a nice walk to Venice beach where you can spend the entire day at the beach and sharky’s restaurant. We are at the crow’s nest marina restaraunt and it was outstanding. We will surely be back!

                                                                  Fun in the sun

                                                                  Wonderful home for relaxing getaway

The pool was a great way to start and end each day- having it heated made it extra-enjoyable. Very clean throughout, beds were quite comfortable, and plenty of towels for bathing and pool. Quiet neighborhood and easy traveling to all Venice activities. Amy was very quick to respond to any questions we had. Thank you!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Owner's Response:

Historic Venice Avenue is only 8/10 of a mile for those who like a nice walk or free, easy parking in town center if you prefer a car. best, amy

                                                                  Great vacation home

                                                                  Owner's Response:

Many of our repeat guests agree this spacious house works well for two couples sharing because on either end of the house we have a bedroom with a king-size bed. Please the third bedroom has twin & full is nice for families.
