Excellent Home Away From Home

October 20, 2010

Recently we had the pleasure of staying at this property, for both business and pleasure. We had a conference to attend during the week and took some extra days to spend time in CA. My parents joined us during the week to babysit my little one, while I attended the conference - both grandparents and my daughter loved there stay. It was an excellent choice in accommodations and would recommend it highly. Jane is also awesome to deal with.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

I rented this house in May 08 for my family, who came over from Ireland for my wedding. They loved every single aspect - the house is beautiful, clean and comfortable, with a beautiful outdoor upstairs patio, plus a garden, and it is on a lovely quiet street, yet close enough to the beach. Most importantly, Jane, the owner, was a total doll who made everything easy for us. Thanks Jane, my family have beautiful memories of their time in Venice!

John and I are back at our home in NW Florida after a wonderful vacation in California. Thank you for the good feeling we had at your home. Your house worked well for us. We had a grand time with our children.


P.S. John wanted to add one more thing - he so enjoyed coming up each morning and walking into a room full of light with fine colors......nice!
