Reviews for this vacation home rental in Venice, Florida
breaking the rules
June 1, 2014
the rental at Island Walk could not be accomplished as the HOA has rules that only a 6 month rental is allowed, so if shorter than that, the renter would not have any access to the amenities unless you were willing to lie and say you were a family member of the owner who was renting which I was asked to do but after checking with the local HOA I found out the truth and looked elsewhere

Very nice and well equipped villa. The key handover was smooth, the pool was heated. Everything worked.

We rented this beautiful, spacious, well appointed home in order to celebrate Grandma's 90th birthday.The owner, Doreen, was very accommodating and an absolute pleasure to deal with ! The private swimming pool, community amenities, home furnishings, layout and location made this rental truly a cut above the rest. We highly recommend this home and owner. Doreen makes the rental process a smooth one and the home was ready and immaculate when we arrived. There is a local representative should a need arise which is a big plus (though we never had to call them ). We were provided with a comprehensive packet of information beforehand which was very helpful for our planning purposes. The local area has a lot to offer. The beach is nearby as are golf courses, restaurants, shopping centers and entertainment venues. If you are more the homebody type, you will easily find plenty to do without ever leaving the community itself. The clubhouse has a place to exercise and a heated pool and the grounds are very attractive for a morning stroll. If you don't want to leave the confines of this lovely home, no worries because you can laze by the private pool, BBQ in the enclosed lanai, or watch something on the big screen TV in air conditioned comfort. The kitchen is well equipped. There are both formal and casual dining options indoors as well as a large table outdoors for guests that like to live in their bathing suits (Oh yes, beach towels are provided). Doreen has thought of everything to make her guests stay a memorable one. Without question,we will rent her home again .
