The Garden House: a Sweet Suite in South Venice, Fl. You're just plain welcome!

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Walk the boardwalk, come through the wavy blue wooden fence to your own private entrance into your Sweet Suite. Here's your gardeny bedroom. Shall I mention the Beatles themed (subtly collaged) dresser? There's a full bath and sitting room equipped with an old-timey farm table, mini-fridge, microwave, cooktop, coffee pot, TV, and wifi. You'll find beach stuff to take to the beaches (minutes away) - chairs, towels, coolers, sharks-tooth sifter...! There's a double sleeper sofa with a comfy Serta mattress for a kid or two, or some visiting friends. Sit out on your covered deck in the garden. Walk the paths through the gardens surrounding the house. If you're into plants, you'll find a collectors' (hoarders?) selection to check out - um, Everywhere! Return to those golden days of childhood and swing away on the wooden swing hanging from one of the old oaks. The screened-in heated salt water pool is a few steps away from your deck. You're welcome to use the pool and walk the paths through the garden. In fact, you're just plain welcome! Keep reading!

We try to keep as green as we can. There is no lawn. It's All Garden! We compost. We don't smoke cigarettes, we try to recycle.

We're just over the drawbridge, about 10 minutes away from downtown Venice with its adorable shops, great restaurants, history, theater, and the beautiful beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. Our house is centrally located on the western coast of Florida (Land of the Flowers.) Sarasota is our nearest "big" city - about 20 minutes' drive. Our visitors use The Garden House as a home base while they visit Venice, St. Pete, Fort Myers, Naples, and Orlando (2 1/2 hours to Disney, etc.)

So, the Garden House awaits! Come to here! We're looking forward to your visit!

Cute suite

  • 5 of 5

Great property and enjoyed our stay for a few days. The suite consists of a living room area, a kitchen area (minus a sink) with a full sized refrigerator, a bathroom, and another room with a comfortable queen sized sleeper sofa that was perfect for our two twelve year old girls. The queen size bed was also very comfy. The girls enjoyed using the pool. It was an easy drive to the beach and there were towels, chairs, a shark's tooth sifter, and a small cooler.

  • 5 of 5

We weren’t sure what to expect, but WOW this place is excellent! Bed is very comfortable. The gardens are wonderful to wander around in! Our private front porch was a great place for us and our friends to sit. The pool is big! The best part tho is Andey, who is a doll and made us cookies from her grandmas recipe! They were SO GOOD!
