Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

The boundaries between indoor and outdoor are delightfully blurred in our spacious Venice Lakeside House. A sparkling swimming pool, large lanai, and 3 living spaces create enough room for a party. The perfect getaway for family and friends! Step outside as the sun is rising and enjoy the sight of exotic wildfowl fishing for an early breakfast on the lake, or float in the heated pool and gaze at through the floor-to-ceiling windows at the pure blue of another perfect day. If you are looking for relaxation, Venice Lakeside House offers it in every room. Just inside the lanai is a sunroom, flooded with light yet cooled to just the temperature you desire. With three ultra-comfortable couches, an HDTV, and a coffee table for drinks and snacks, this is the place for impromptu games of charades, long evenings reminiscing, or perhaps even an afternoon siesta. One corner of the room meets the kitchen, with convenient bar stools and a wide counter for pick-up meals and refills of frosty drinks. The kitchen is a busy mom's delight, with brand-new cabinetry, gleaming countertops, and enough refrigerator and freezer space to stock up on refreshments. Fully equipped with all the cookware, dishes, silverware, and gadgetry of a large family, it's got everything you need for concocting gourmet feasts . . . or for serving takeout! A breakfast nook adjacent to the kitchen doubles as a game room or workspace in this wireless Internet-equipped home. Whether your teenagers want to access their social media, your spouse review a project, or your little ones play a raucous online round of I Spy, this is the place to spread out and get down, either to business or the business of fun. Keeping up with the laundry is simple with the en-suite washer and dryer, accompanied by plenty of storage space. Fluff-dry those damp swimsuits so they'll be fresh and warm for a pre-bedtime dip in the pool or run a load of towels in preparation for another sun-soaked day at the beach; it's all easy and quick! And when it's time to get away from communal living, the exquisitely appointed living room is the place to unwind with a good book or watch the game on the large LCD TV. This house is so well designed that children can splash in the pool, teens conduct a lively game of Magic in the sunroom, adults enjoy a heartwarming classic film in the living room, and toddlers slumber in a bedroom -- all at once, without disturbance! Now that's the best of both worlds -- quality time with family and friends, all together yet not crowded or cramped! This house sleeps 8 very comfortably, and the layout of the beds is convenient both for families and friends. The master suite is luxury personified, with a firm yet comfy mattress that invites oversleeping, an LCD TV, and lamps on each end table so one of you can finish that thriller at 2 a.m. while the other sleeps. A private master bath offers twin mirrors, a walk-in closet, and an inset medicine chest that keeps prescriptions safely out of little ones' reach. The second bedroom is painted a cool blue that invites relaxation. It boasts a roomy queen bed and two windows with a view of morning sun and night sky. The third bedroom offers two twin beds in a setting both cheerful and pleasant, with plenty of windows. And the fourth bedroom contains a twin trundle bed that may just become an afternoon haven for sleepy parents as well as youngsters! The second bathroom is generously sized, with enough counter space to accommodate all manner of toiletries. Lakeside House is located on a sleepy residential street. The backyard is shaded by a natural barrier of trees, so you can enjoy the BBQ grill, sunbathe, or stargaze in privacy. Nearby, the Gulf Coast beckons you to splash in the surf and hunt for prehistoric shark's teeth in the soft sands. Come stay at Venice Lakeside House for the vacation of a lifetime with more than the comforts of home! If our Venice Beach location, private pool and views leave any gaps in your itinerary - Disney World makes a great day trip.

Few "small" fixes and it woulda been perfect

Few "small" fixes and it woulda been perfect

The house was perfect & great location. A block & !/2 away is a ferry that's included to a beach where if you enjoy the hunt you can find sharks teeth by the jars full. The house is 10min to everything you NEED but !/2hr from mall. 40 min to Siesta beach WORTH the trip. So very very beautiful. Our subdivision is super quiet & people to the right are sweet. Next door left, house for sale & next to them (downfall) the house is a complete junk yard & eye sore. Can't see from house. Almost everything at our place was very clean but for the one side of the house by the pool. Lots of debris & old fence & rubbish. A few things in the house were loose & crooked (kitch tile floor loose, 2nd bathroom shower tiles pushed in, handles on screen doors fall off, main bedroom toilet didn't work, outside sitting area off 2nd bedroom really not nice & was kind of a mini storage room for extra doors & BBQ. Washer and drier great, fridge is new, kitch has everything & pretty good quality for a rental. I cook a lot. Lots of plates & cutlery. Were there a month & saw the grounds keepers once for 10 min & they did mostly nothing. The owner is wasting his $ on these guys, Next time they can clean the side yard. To anyone with a long ish haired dog be wherry of yard sand spurs. We're unfamiliar with them. We saw they were in the yard & the same day of arrival we saw the pool guy who called the manager & he sent maintenance to help us remedy the situation. As this problem really is mother nature, we were so happy with our quick fix. Although a few things can be changed, we had a 10 outta 10 time & loved the quietness of the area, & ferry so close by. We felt very safe there. Which is key. I'm a mid aged lady & like to jog. I had no problem in day running by myself with headphones on. Cars are courteous. If you're looking for quiet & nobody looking over your shoulder this is the place. No one will ever bother you until you call if you need anything.

A Memorable Holiday!!!

  • 5 of 5
December 2011 was one of the warmest on record, and we took full advantage of it! The heated pool beckoned on our arrival, and we used it every day! The ferry pass took us to an uncrowded private beach for sun, sharks' teeth, shells and fishing. Numerous bike paths in the area let us exercise while viewing alligators, eagles, and deer. Inshore charter fishing was great, and the manatee were a bonus.<br/>We loved the quiet neighbourhood, the privacy of the back yard, taking walks with our dogs... two minor problems were taken care of by Kevin within 90 minutes of a phone call.<br/>Sure, the Falcon house could use some upgrades and repairs....but we loved every minute of our stay and plan to return to Venice.

The Falcon is Fine Feathered

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed this house. Very comfortable and livable. I especially liked the kitchen with its' windows overlooking the pool & patio. The pool is nice, enjoyed the sound of the waterfall. One small suggestion: the trees & bushes surrounding the pool cage need trimming as they are rubbing against the screening, also, the gutters are clogged and need cleaned due to all the leaf debris. Outdoor maintainance in Fla. is a constant challenge. Again, we really appreciated Kevin and his prompt attention to our questions and requests. He does a great job! It's always a pleasure to deal with him. Thanks! Looking forward to returning in Autumn 2012.

Okay Place in a Questionable Neighborhood

  • 3 of 5
Pictures of the house are not accurate. There were cobwebs everywhere. The yard was mainly dirt. The pool area was not clean and there was old dog feces by the pool. The pool turned our daughters hair green. The laundry room was not clean and we had to rewash most of the dishes and silverware. The main shower tiles are somewhat moldy. The TV was old and we had to replace batteried in two of the remotes. We were greatly disappointed. The only pros to <br/>the house were the cold A/C and the tile throughout the house. Not really worth the money. The neighborhood is questionable, although it was somewhat quiet. Never heard from property manager, just recorded messages, which the phone rang constantly. Very annoying.

Neighborhood not great. Yard and exterior need work. Also has some minor maintainence issues inside

  • 4 of 5
Met the property manager once when we had an issue w/ Internet. He was nice and helpful. However we were surprised there was no other interaction. No one asked us if we had any questions or if we needed anything. The only times we heard from property management were recorded messages over the phone. A more personal touch is needed. We didn't want to be pestered but if we hadn't had a problem with the Internet, we would have never talked to anyone from management. Also, the property needs some work. There was trash and brush piled beside the pool, virtually no grass in the yard, stained ceilings from old leaks, etc. These are minor issues, but when you're charging $5000 a month, these issues should be taken care of. We liked the layout of the house and the location was convenient. We also appreciated being able to have our dogs with us. Do you have other pet friendly properties in the Venice area?

Very Private--Ferry Experience Terrific

  • 4 of 5
December 2010 ended up being one of the coldest months in Florida history, but in spite of that, we enjoyed our time in the Falcon Beach home--although we used the heat inside, more than the heated pool! When weather allowed, we greatly enjoyed the ferry ride (Thank you, Captain Ralph!) to the very pristine private beach where we found more shark's teeth in one day, than would be expected at another beach in a week or more. <br/><br/>Kevin, the property manager, was quickly responsive in helping with the minor issues that we encountered with the pool and dishwasher. None of these were big deals, but could have become so, without his fast action in taking care of things. Thank you Kevin!<br/><br/>It was overall a great rental experience, but I do want to add the comment that when you rent a home with "a fully equipped kitchen" I don't think that it is unreasonable to expect ice trays in the freezer. However, there were none in the Falcon house. We bought bagged iced for the time that we were there, but it would save not only money, but also resources, to be able to have a source of ice from the faucet. I would strongly recommend the purchase of cheap ice trays for the Falcon Beach home for the future. <br/><br/>In spite of this one minor caveat,our experience was very positive. Thank you so much.
