Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this well-laid out house. The pool was wonderful and the owner kept it warm and clean throughout our 2 month stay. Rick is always available for questions or problems (although we didn't have any) and friendly without being intrusive. The fenced in yard was great for our dog. This is a very comfortable house Thanks, Rick!

Perfect Place when Traveling with our Pet

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay at this "Venice Gardens Getaway". We had never traveled with our Bichon Shih Tzu dog and this place was perfect. It has a nice big, fenced in back yard where she could play and run around and she loved looking out the windows in front too. The pool was our get-away spot and it was great that it was heated which made it usable even during cooler days. We spent a lot of time floating. The kitchen appliances are very nice including the large washer/dryer and there was plenty of space. It was just the two of us with Lucy but we had relatives visit and the house holds 4 comfortably. The outside patio and grill are also nice additions and the carport is perfect when it rains. The place is located very close to beaches, stores, restaurants and Venice island so there are many things to do. Rick, the home owner, is very helpful and a great guy. You'll have fun staying here.

Neat and clean

  • 5 of 5

Well kept up nice two bedroom. Clean and neat. Laid out well with nice ‘reading’ room off the back. Close to everything in the Venice area which has a lot to offer.

Nice neighborhood.

Fenced yard for our small dog who had a nice time keeping the squirrels on their toes.

Nice screened pool with cleaner.

The owner, Rick, is only a few steps away and is very helpful, good guy. Can tell you where everything in Venice is and is the ‘pool and yard guy’. Keeps things going and usually works while you are away and respects your privacy.
