A+ for convenience and value!

The cottage is pleasant, convenient and comfortable. Everything was as advertised and communications were helpful. In addition to the ferry to the beach, we loved that we could drive to three other beaches within five to ten minutes without the hassle of traffic jams. The location is very convenient. We appreciated the willingness to consider pets as they are important to our vacation enjoyment.

A month in paradise

Our family loved our stay in Venice Fl. Great weather, great location, and a lovely home - we quickly felt at home there. Biking, Tennis, Shark tooth hunting, kayaking, and much more ... Thank you again Dee & Jason for a great vacation! Don, Cindi & Celeste

Owner's reply:

Venice is such a great spot and boating with our guests is always fun when we are in town too! It was great to be able to provide an extra kayak and bike for their guest so they could all have fun!

Wonderful, wonderful home to stay in!

We stayed here for 2 weeks and it was beyond expectations! To start off, the neighborhood is quaint, quiet, and friendly. If you're a bird watcher, it's a treat-ibis, egrets, cranes, herons. In fact, there was a trio of sandhill cranes that roamed the neighborhood daily. The house itself is meticulously maintained. Pleasing to look at, with the usual Venice decor of statuary, shells, etc. When you open the garage door (yes, and you can park your van in it) you have bikes and kayaks. When you enter the laundry, the open floor plan house, a beautiful and modern kitchen, living room, bed and bath rooms await you. And to top it off, a clean, maintained and screen enclosed pool with dining and sitting areas is there too! This was truly home away from home with all that you need to relax after a long day at the beach, amusement parks, museums, gardens, birding and/or shopping! Dee was great to work with, patient and thorough dealing with all my questions, tolerant with our pets, and going above making sure that we had enough bikes, etc. Though the house is not on the beach, the free ferry to a private beach makes up for it-over 250 shark teeth found in one trip! Venice is only 10 mins. away, and Manasota, Blind Pass and Stump Pass State Park 10 to 15 mins. away as well. Siesta key is worth the trip, only about 1/2 hr. and crowded, but the sand is incredible. We took many day trips, and all were worth it. Legoland is amusing and impressive with the models, but I hunted down coupons while in Fla. because it is expensive. Historic Spanish Point is beautiful and a hidden garden gem outside Venice. Ringing should not be missed, the miniature circus town is amazing. Big Cat Habitat leaves you breathless in that you can be as close as 2 yards away from lions, tigers, and a 1000 lb. liger. A visit to the south Fla. museum has you meeting Snooty, a 65 yr. old manatee. Dee and Jason's home was a great central station for doing and seeing so much in Florida's southern gulf, and we couldn't have asked for better caretakers.
