Lovely beach town rental.

  • 4 of 5

Walking distance to beautiful golden beach and short bike ride to downtown Venice perfect location. House is cozy and well maintained. Pool is a plus. Quiet neighborhood. We remained in Venice for a year and would loved to rented this place longer. Very popular however. Great stay.

A paradise home

  • 5 of 5

Decor and furnishings of this property were high standard. Its location to beach, downtown Venice, restaurants and shopping were perfect. We enjoyed relaxing round the pool after a morning on the beach, sometimes we did not venture out as the pool area was so tranquil . Quiet neighbourhood, safe for walking/cycling. The owner, Gabrielle, was excellent to work with making contact when we arrived to ensure everything to our satisfaction. We would definitely return to this property when we next visit Venice.

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this house. The first year was wonderful, but the second year was like being in heaven. The house was totally renovated in such beautiful soothing colors and very comfortable furnishings. This property is located within minutes to just about everything you could possibly need. The pool which is right outside the door was so refreshing when coming back from the beach, we just loved it. The neighborhood is very friendly and safe. We have a little dog and felt perfectly safe walking her anytime of the day or night. Gabriele, the owner, is so great to work with and responds to you immediately with any problem that arises. The property managers, Kathy and Justin are also so accommodating, while we were there a transformer blew and shutdown all the power in the house, we called Kathy and she alerted the Florida Power Company and followed up until the wee hours in the morning. Comforting to know someone has your back in any situation.

Just a wonderful experience, already booked for 2017! Thank you Gabriele :)!!!!!

Wonderful beachy retreat - Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

I highly HIGHLY recommend this home if you’re looking for a true Venice Island experience, surrounded by cool beachy colors, terrazzo flooring and a refreshing pool just outside your patio doors.

This home was just lovely giving my family a sense of a beach cottage retreat as soon as we walked in. Located just a few blocks from the private Golden Beach access and best of all minutes to everything be it on or off Venice Island. The neighborhood is so quiet allowing us to enjoyed our evening walks and diners out on the lanai. Mornings were spent pool side in a meditative state while surrounded by the sounds of nature. The pool was perfect for water aerobics or just drifting away listening to audio books.

Our accommodations were top notch with a well equipped kitchen, linens, beach towels, beach chairs and pool floats. The furnishings were very comfortable and tastefully decorated. This home has such a refreshing essence and has converted this boring ‘beige on beige’ Midwesterner to the cool beachy colors of mint, purple and aqua.

We were in Venice to view the area for relocation. While my husband looked at new construction for our future home, I kept looking at similar homes to this one since I felt like I was already home.

Gabriele (owner) was wonderful to work with and quickly responded to any questions we had as well as checking to see if we needed anything. There is a local maintenance team available for any other needs. Do check out her Guest Info binder and the restaurant menu samplings available within the unit.

I definitely will return and once I’m a full time resident to Venice will be ‘suggesting’ possible house guest to consider Gabriele’s home.

We truly enjoyed our stay and if you go, take that time to enjoy the sunsets either at the pier, at the Nokomis drum circle or alone on the beach holding your love ones hand…

Exceptional home

  • 5 of 5

Gabriele, I'm sorry this has taken so long to write. Jeff is back to good health finally. We just loved your home! The house is so roomy inside and decorated beautifully. I loved the pool area. I would sit outside every morning with my coffee and it was so peaceful and quite. Being so close to the private beach is wonderful and I wish we had more time to have explored it. The location of the house is so close to the grocery store, shopping and the downtown area and would be easy to explore by bikes. We will definitely stay at your home again!
