About Cindy Lowes and Raymond Pace

Why Cindy Lowes and Raymond Pace chose Venice

Safe friendly gated community with a premium location close to everything you could ever need.

What makes this house unique

Extra large custom Lanai, for larger patio area and recently switched to a healthier Salt Water Pool. Extremely well equipped kitchen etc. as we use this as our personal 'vacation home' for our family and like to travel light.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, tastefully decorated home. The home is fully equipped and exceptionally clean upon our arrival.

The heated pool was especially nice to have on the sunny but cool days.

We enjoyed exploring the Venice area and having a Garmin for directions was a godsend. Great shopping, beaches, golf and history.

First cast into the large man-made pond on the poolside resulted in a catch and release of bass - bring your favourite bass lure!

All our communications were done by email and mail and the owner provided detailed but easy to follow instructions for arrival etc.

We enjoyed meeting Bob the seaford monger who has fresh seafood Fri to Sun on the side of River Road, east of the development. Left his business card on the bulletin board.

We would certainly love to return to this home in the future.

One of the best Homes we have rented

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many home in the Venice, Nokomis area, this property was by far the best. It had everything we needed for the beach, coolers, beach chairs, umbrella. The house is set up with two living areas one on main floor and the other upstairs so the younger kids had a place of their own. Pool area had plenty of seating. Great neighborhood as well. You cannot beat this home, I will surely be back. Everyone we dealt with was great.

Perfect home for the whole family...

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a whole family. We've been there with 7 people (5 adults/2 kids) for two weeks. We had enough space for everybody, with the two livingrooms and the poolarea... It's very good with the three bathrooms, so that there's no queue in front of the toilets or showers... ;-)

All the stuff in the garage that we could use, was just great (beach stuff - chairs, umbrellas, bodyboard, waterpistols; the bikes and the tennisequipement) there was nothing that wasn't there...

The house is as good or even better than in the pictures... (very clean, all is in good shape...)

The location of the house is great (2 min to the highway and just a few minutes to the closest beaches.)

All contacts (with Cindy and Marta, the property manager) were very friendly and always helpful and reachable by mail or phone.

We had a wonderful time in this lovely house. Looking forward to come back again and recommend this house to all our friends...

Superb home and done to the highest standard.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for 6 weeks just gone June and I have to say it is one of the most beautiful homes i have ever rented and I've rented quite a few. I also rent my own properties on the same websites so i know how important it is to provide 5 star accommodation if thats what you advertise. Cindys house is 10 star and it has the most welcoming atmosphere . We really felt at home there and we had every mod con , the most elegant comfy furniture and we were so relaxed the whole time we were there.The pool area is HUGE and its been extended so you get the sunshine all day long.The patio furniture is huge and comfy and theres enough for a large group and more. The house is well worth every cent and more . Cindy is one of the kindest most helpful host i have come across and i cant sing her praises enough. LOVE LOVE LOVE this home and thank you so much for having us.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 weeks at this house in December 2012, the owner responded to all our queries immediately when we were initially enquiring about the house, which made it really helpful and easy to choose this house. The photo's don't do this house justice, it's even bigger and more luxurious and really clean. Everything you can imagine is at the house and it's well stocked for all your needs. Various beaches are a mere 10 mins drive away, and we opted to go to Siesta Beach at least 6 times during our stay, which is only a 25 mins drive away. It truly is the no 1 beach in the USA. The added bonus of a gated community alongside clubhouse facilities was really great. We can definitely recommend this house and look forward in spending time there again in the future.

Great stay - friendly people, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We booked this Villa for a 20 night stay in January 2013. Having been to the Gulf Coast on a number of occasions we had never stopped in Venice. The villa is as nice as the pictures show, tastefully decorated and furnished. It was well equipped with everything that you would need and two lounges should you have a party that want to do different things/watch something else on TV. The 62” TV was great for catching up on the US shows we have come to enjoy when we are over from the UK.

The main bedroom had a huge bed, and the ensuite had separate shower and bath and double wash basins.

The pool area was very spacious and again well equipped with comfortable loungers and two dining areas. The pool was nice and the hot tub fantastic, the benefit of electric heating over solar was noticeable.

Two bikes, tennis racquets, beach equipment, coolbox, wireless printer etc were also provided if you needed them. The Wifi was also good.

There is a clubhouse with tennis courts and gym and pool available too although we did not make use of them.

The area was fairly quiet and although we have always stayed at villas with spare plots either side the closeness of the neighbours was not a problem. The lake at the rear attracted some birds and I think possibly some turtles.

As always a car is needed to get around Florida but everything was within a reasonable distance. There are some beautiful beaches nearby, plenty of shops (Northport, Port Charlotte, Sarasota & Venice). The I75 was only 5 minutes away so you can go north to Tampa, St Pete or south to Fort Myers, Naples etc.

A friend of the owners was on hand for any issues, meeting us on our first full day and when we checked out. She was also kind enough to take in some parcels for us. The owners were friendly and helpful as were the people we met in the community.

We had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend this property.
