Description of the Venice vacation condo rental
Great 2 suite unit with lake views to rear and 20 steps to pool. Fully refurbished and kitted out including comfy reclining sofa.

Unit address is ~193, 446 Cerromar Rd on the Farmington Vistas section of Plantation in Venice, Fl.

Unit is within Plantation Golf & Country Club - a well maintained community which is beautifully landscaped.

It has 2 suites ie private bathrooms for two couples sharing the condo.

The unit is fully furnished with all you need - queen bed in main suite and twins in other suite. Lounge is tastefully furnished - including reclining sofa and comfy armchairs, TVs/DVD/CD Player - and the kitchen has all you need. Newly capeted throughout with new 32" LCD tv, upgraded cable and even an Ipod docking station!

As one of our recent guests said "we felt right at home!".

Front door is only 20 steps to the heated pool and clubhouse! If you look at the pool photo, our unit is the beige one just to the left of the clubhouse - that's how close the pool is!

However, if you prefer, laze around in the large Florida room or separate patio at the rear and soak up the warmth and lake/golf course views!

Rental includes free local telephone calls and hi speed internet is available as an option at only $75 per month extra. This rate is for open access, not per device as you may see elsewhere.

Unit has washer and dryer in large storage cupboard in lanai (so you cant hear them whilst they're on!).

Long distance calls will require a calling card or you could use an internet based phone system over your laptop.

Great golf courses nearby! Close to shops (5 mins) and the beach (10 mins).

Close to medical facilities and easily accessible to the Interstate (although no noise intrusion)

The final pictures are of the local wildlife that might come calling and a typical sunset
Area Information
Just minutes from many great golf courses, tennis courts, dining, shopping and, of course, the famous Venice beach.

Or, if you prefer, the Sarasota Croquet club is a short drive away.

The condo was so convenient to anything we needed. The pool was vey nice and heated to a perfect temp continually. We are so thankful for the joy this added to our January get away.

November 23, 2014

Fantastic location in very nice community. Fantastic water view out the back of condo which was a bird magnet. Can not get any closer to the pool than this unit! Unit itself is somewhat dated, however well kept and clean. Very private, with all the amenities that are needed except hair dryer which we did bring. Nice furniture throughout , however mattress has paid for itself, and is due for a change, which I told the owner. Kitchen is well equipped. Owners are great to work with, and very reasonable in pricing. Would certainly recommend this suite to anyone interested in going to South Florida on the Gulf ....................................

Just what we needed to relaax after a busy year

September 7, 2014

Could not fault in any way. The owners communicated with us very well and kept us up to date at all time. The condo is in a great location with only couple of minutes drive to the nearest IHOP :) and just on the golf course. Condo is nicely furnished and very, very quiet at this time of the year. If going to Venice next year, that's where we will want to stay again.

Pav, thanks very much for those comments - we do try our hardest to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Ivan

comfortable digs!

Unit was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. Plenty of clean soft towels and beach towels for the massive sized pool. Being here in July, we had the pool all to ourselves. Neighborhood was very quiet. Screened in lanai was a nice place to enjoy breakfast. If I had to be nitpicky...the coffee pot could use a good cleaning.

Owner's reply:

William, glad you liked the place - I will get my cleaner to sort the coffee pot! Thanks, Ivan

Great place, quiet community!

August 21, 2013

We had a wonderful time at your condo. The furniture was so comfortable, and the kitchen had everything that we needed. The community was very quiet, and the pool was footsteps away! Most of the time we were the only ones in the pool. Also, the value for the condo was unbeatable! We thoroughly enjoyed the HUGE patio, and also liked the fact that each bedroom had it's own bathroom. The condo itself was tastefully decorated and cute. We would definitely love to stay again!

ivan gould

Owner's reply:

Laura, thanks for your kind words - we really do try to provide the best possible all round deal. Hope to see you again some time. Ivan

Extremely comfortable unit in a great location

June 4, 2013

The location of the entire community as well as,that of the unit is most desirable. The condo is on the second floor with elevator service and is wonderfully located so that it is not flooded with sun but is very bright and breezy. The outlook from the lanai across the golf course complete with trees and lake afford optimum privacy with no other structures closely. The pool area is a close walk and there is a clubhouse with wifi and library. The condo is well equipped with everything one could need in order to feel at home. I honestly was amazed that whenever I reached for something be it in the kitchen or one of the two baths, it was there where one would expect to find it. The furnishings are as advertised and very comfortable. The owners could not be more accommodating and helpful. My rating is based upon expectations in the location I chose for the price I paid. I am extremely familiar with the Venice area, and yes, a beachfront condo with luxurious furnishings would rate 5 stars, but it would cost you dearly. In my opinion, you would not be disappointed with this condo so close to shopping as well as the Island.

ivan gould

Owner's reply:

Thanks - but this is not our unit! Hopefully you will visit ours and give it 5 stars.....!!

Venice Beach Get-A-Way

What a relaxing vacation this was, we loved staying in this lovely decorated and well stocked condo that was just a few steps away from the pool that we enjoyed every day, it had everything we needed and was very centrally located. We would recommend anyone to rent this condo and would most definetely stay again if ever vacationing in Venice again.
