This was my first VRBO home rental and we weren't sure what to expect. Our party included 4 adults and our small dog. We rented in Venice because we wanted to check out the local area real estate market. The home was very clean and in a very friendly and quiet neighborhood about a block and a half from a secluded beach. The owners had everything we needed for our 8 night stay. They decorated the home for the holidays and even had a pie waiting for us in the refrigerator! There was a full size washer & dryer to do laundry if needed. They had 5 bikes, beach chairs and shelling equipment if one is so inclined. We used the covered lanai extensively for breakfast, dinners and drinks when we didn't go out. The patio was ample for sunning and the pool was very clean and relaxing. The main strip on Venice Ave. is very close (short drive) and had a lot of great restaurants where you could eat outside. There is a dog friendly beach a 5 minute drive away (or a short bike ride) near the main pier which had a great restaurant (Sharky's) overlooking the Gulf. Everything is a very short car ride from the home: chain restaurants, grocery stores (Publix), Starbucks, Planet Fitness, Walmart, Target, Panera, and salons. This was a great home base to be able to check out the area and get a feel for the culture of the town. Many thanks to John & Chris for making their home available to us!
We had a great time staying at Ocala Street Property. It is a quiet street ...3 minutes to the beach. Could not ask for anything more. We found everything that we needed for a very restful vacation. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great beach house in a great setting. Convenient to everything.
