  • Can't beat the location

    "March was a lovely time to be on the bay in Venice. The location is wonderful -- relaxing, filled with birds and an occasional dolphin siting, and plenty of outdoor space for our dog to run. The house itself, although older than other places we've stayed, is very clean and comfortable. The rooms are good-sized, closets are large, and the kitchen is well-stocked. With only two bedrooms we wondered how we would manage a 3 day stay with our son and his family, including two big teenage boys. We brought an air mattress from home that one slept on in the living room along with his younger brother who loved the fold out chair. Space was not a problem. They really enjoyed fishing from the dock. Since our return, Bryan has followed up with an email identifying minor fixes that will make future renters more comfortable. We enjoyed getting to know Bryan and his family and although he lives next door, we saw them only occasionally, providing a wonderful sense of privacy. I would heartily recommend the cottage and we are looking forward to returning next year."

  • Excellent Rental!

    "My family recently rented this house from Bryan for a week for our family reunion. The house is in a really lovely, safe location (on a street with many other fine homes) and is exceptionally maintained. There are instructions for renters posted throughout the house and it is very clear that the owner cares about the maintenance of his property and keeping it in great shape and well cared for. Bryan was very accommodating with our unique sleeping arrangements (7 adults, 3 singles...) We spent most of our time on the lanai, and much of it in the pool. The lanai area is very large and spacious, the pool is really clean. There were absolutely no issues whatosever with our stay but I'm confident if there were, Bryan would have taken care of them immediately. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again or to rent from Bryan."

  • Perfect!!!

    "If you are looking for a house that has all the comforts of home and one that is clean, spacious and relaxing then here it is! We throughly enjoyed our stay. I'd like to point out that the beach is a brief walk from the house and is not crowded. The pool was a huge hit for our family. The town of Venice is within walking distance from the house with a variety of wonderful restaurants and cute shops. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We hope to be back!"

  • Marvelous place!

    "My husband and I have rented this house for two years in a row now, and are very pleased. We generally have other family members, including our grandchildren, come for a week or two, and we love this house and Venice. The bike paths are extraordinary; the town is within walking distance and charming; we take advantage of activities in nearby Sarasota; and the house has all of the comforts of home. The swimming pool is great and private, although it’s always been too cold for us to use during the month of February. Tina and Bo are wonderful landlords and are so trusting and easy going. We feel lucky to have found this place when it’s so difficult to find good rental properties in Venice during the month of February."
