About Angie Lambrecht of Florida Coastal Realty & Rentals
Owners We love our chateau Dolphin. WHY? We have lived in Venice for 10 years in a townhouse. When we saw this house we fell in love with it and knew it was a keeper. Although the home needed a total upgrade, It had a charm all of its own. You open the front door and the vista of the total lake greets you. All the main rooms can see the lake, it is peaceful and calming to be here. Every day there is something new to watch. A heron family building a nest, ducks playing in the water a turtle peeking its head out close by. Its such a delight to just sit and relax. You can take your coffee to the breakfast table have your morning TV show on and watch all the activity on the lake. Birds, ducks, turtles are busy around you. We are only ten minutes, 5 miles, from downtown Venice, for great shopping; fine restaurants, a Saturdays farmers market, Venice Art center, theater and public beach. We are 40 minutes from Sarasota for opera, symphony and museums. Our wonderful manager Angie takes care of our home and will make sure you have everything you need for a wonderful stay. We hope you will love our home as much as we do.

A wonderful surprise!
This property was more than we could have asked for. Cleanliness was 5 star plus! A well stocked kitchen was available to fix meals in. A binder was waiting with all kinds of useful tips about the home, along with suggestions for places that may be of interest to visit. The ferry to the private beach was a pleasant experience and the shelling at the beach was great! This is a well thought out and prepared vacation home. The pool was clean and inviting. We hope to come back and stay again at this home soon.
Thank you Patricia for sharing your experience with future guests! The homeowners have thought of everything. It is their goal as well as mine to provide 5-star accommodations. I look forward to your return!
The rental property was beautiful. We enjoyed our stay and would strongly recommend this property. The description provided on your site is very accurate!
We stayed for the month of February and could not have had a better stay. Everything was beautiful, from the lake view, the pool, layout of the home, furnishings, and amenities. Home was immaculate and had everything one could possibly need and even some unexpected things like a nice office area, books, maps, bird books, binoculars, bike, and items for the beach. Serene is a great description. We spent much of our time bird watching from the pool deck and the back yard. Beautiful garden as well. Birds galore as well as 2 alligators and many turtles. The area is close to so many parks, like Shamrock Park and Lemon Bay Park with many hiking and biking trails. You can bike to Sarasota if you are energetic! Great beaches including access to the ferry to the private beach just a mile away. We walked daily, went to Venice Audubon only a couple of miles away with a fabulous rookery, made trips to Venice shops & restaurants, Sarasota Botanical Gardens, Englewood restaurants and farmers market, Boca Grande, and beaches on Manasota key. There are so many options of things to do or you can just relax and view the birds all day! All was clean, bright, relaxing and Angie, the manager was so responsive to any concerns that we had. Will definitely be back.
Outstanding vacation home in South Venice
We had a wonderful 3-week stay at this Venice home. The house is beautiful. It has a perfect layout, new & attractive furnishings, and most importantly, it was impeccably maintained and immaculate throughout. All the amenities and items to accommodate every need were of high quality, and often, brand new. During our stay we enjoyed beach outings to private South Venice beach on Manasota Key (using the provided ferry pass), bicycling in the neighborhood & on nearby Legacy Trail, preparing food in the well-stocked kitchen, and simply relaxing and viewing wildlife from the lakeside room and lanai. Thank you for sharing your home. We would definitely rent it again next time we come to Venice. Also, special thanks to Angie, our rental agent, who was always immediately responsive to questions during the rental process.

At first viewing the property and surrounding neighborhood I did'nt know what to expect about the inside and our upcoming stay. After a good conversation with Angie, I was reassured it was a top notch home and a good area! My family and a found it to be one of the nicest and relaxing 2 weeks that we have had after renting in the Sarasota area for 20 years. The home was nicely decorated ,filled with all the amenities needed to live away from home, and above all else, extremely clean! I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely rent again! Hidden gems were all around us, and again , I just can't say enough about the overall rental experience!
Loved the place perfect! And our sales agent was fantastic!
