This property was great. We had 5 adults on a women only getaway. It was very clean and lots of seating. Absolutely loved the pool area, the screened in porch, and the new kitchen. We ate every dinner in the screened in porch with the accent lights on. Very peaceful to sit and drink a glass of wine. Mattress in the master bedroom was very soft and comfy. The mattresses in the other 2 rooms were quite a bit more firm, but not super uncomfortably so. We took advantage of the pool loungers, hammock, and the hot tub. There was even a small drink refrigerator in the living room so that our adult drinks didn't take up the kitchen refrigerator. The keyless lock was very appreciated. I had a problem with the hot tub not heating up and my email was returned very quickly.
I do think the property needs a little love, but it wouldn't stop us from returning. The sheds need some updated paint, unused flower pots should be stored away, and although I love a wild look, I would recommend the yard be more purposeful in the "wild" look. This property is in the middle of a suburban neighborhood, but with all of the trees and planting, it feels very private. You may hear some planes from the local airport, but it never disturbed our sleep and it wasn't consistent through out the day.
I recommend to anyone staying here to bring the following: wash cloths, a kitchen sponge, charcoal for the grill, and something to inflate floats if you are bringing any for the pool. I don't know if some of the items that were in the kitchen were just left behind, but make sure you also have coffee filters and ground coffee for that morning pick me up.
Overall, we had a fabulous time. I may seriously consider bringing my family back in the summer for pool time. We searched for shark teeth on Caspersen Beach, strolled around Historic Downtown Venice for some shopping and gelato, and returned to cook fresh fish from the Farmer's Market.
