Description from owner

Our home is ideally located in the South Venice neighborhood within walking distance to Shamrock Park. It is a short drive to several beautiful beaches and a Ferry Pass is included with your rental for the South Venice Private Beach.

This home has one of the larger private pools in the neighborhood. The pool is heated by a hybrid heating system and it keeps the pool warm even on cooler winter days. There is NO extra charge for heating the pool! The lanai covering the pool is large and perfect for laying out in the sun on the lounge chairs or eating and relaxing in the outdoor dining area that has a large sun shade for the hot days.

The oversized back yard is completely fenced in for your own personal space and for those who are looking for a safe place for their pets. The fence is private on 3 sides.

The home has two renovated and updated bathrooms, kitchen with granite counter tops with breakfast bar, stainless steal appliances, and three bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom has a trundle bed and doubles as an office space or reading area for couples or small groups that do not need a 3rd bedroom.

The two main bedrooms have DISH TV with new flat screen TVs as well as another flat screen TV in the living room. Free Wifi in the home. You are also provided with a grill and propane in the backyard lanai.

Many people will find it hard to leave your personal private pool that faces perfectly south for the sun. But be sure to make it to the beaches and Shamrock Park which has walking trails, a nature center, tennis courts, a play ground, and basketball courts. There are also golf courses in town.

This home and location are perfect for both active vacationers, families, and those just looking to relax. We supply beach chairs, towels, toys, shark teeth strainers, tennis rackets, bicycles, and more!

We want everyone to enjoy their vacation. We want to make sure our house is what you are looking for. Please ask questions so we can make sure you are getting the vacation experience you want.

About the area

This home is located in South Venice Florida. The home itself is in walking distance to Sharmrock Park and the Inland Waterway Trail which is beautiful. Shamrock Park features tennis courts, a play ground, nature center, and walking/biking trails. It's also under 10 minutes to 4 different beaches. Location is the reason we chose to purchase, renovate, and rent this home. It's close to everything you need. There are also several golf courses to choose from in the area. The Town of Venice is beautiful. It's a taste of Old Florida, but with some updates. The beaches are amazing and the downtown is very nice. It makes you feel at home, not like some of the more condo built areas of Florida. Whether you want activities, relaxation, or both the Venice area has it all.

Getting around

Most people would need their own car. There is a bus system, but we have not used it.

Getting here

The closest Airport is Sarasota International, but most people who are flying here would come into Tampa or Fort Myers.

Interaction with guest

We run our home from New Hampshire where we live. We are available by chat message, email, text, or phone call during your stay. We prefer to be in touch with our renters so we know that their stay is going as they had expected, but at the same time we do not wish to intrude on your vacation. If there are any issues we take pride in responding quickly to your needs and we have several good caretakers down in Florida who can respond as needed.

“Extremely Comfortable Home”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2015

We stayed at this home for the month of March and were very happy with our stay. The home had everything we needed and the owner was very quick to respond to any of our questions both before and during our stay.The house is furnished in a bright welcoming style with all linens provided. The newly refurbished bathrooms are very nice indeed. The lanai is fabulous and gets the sunshine all day. The pool is not an 'ornament' like many home pools in the area but is large and great for swimming. The home is close to Shamrock Park and we loved cycling there most days to watch the world go by on the Inter Coastal Waterway. Even if you do not cycle, be sure not to miss the park as it is also easy to walk to. We have rented many vacation homes mainly in Europe and have never come across such a helpful owner. Thank you Ryan.

Owner's reply: Jean we are so glad you loved our home. We really hope to have you again sometime. You took good care of our home and we appreciate that. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Be in touch anytime! We will continue to add things and make improvements to the home for renters to enjoy something new or different every time they come. Sincerely, Ryan & Lee

“A perfect getaway!”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2015

We enjoyed our stay immensely at this adorable updated home with our 3 young children. Shamrock park and biking trail was a great way to start our day. Local beaches were breathtaking and we found lots of shark teeth and shells..Sharkeys pier will definitely be seeing us again! A screened in patio was perfect for our burgers on the grill picnic and the heated pool was the perfect ending for our busy day.. Mr Holder was very courteous and helpful with any questions we had. This is almost too good to be true!! We will be back!
