About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Home With A Private Pool Only Minutes From 4 Beaches

This home has been renovated and updated for a truly wonderful vacation getaway. The most recent update is new 8ft privacy fencing that has been installed on 2 SIDES of the properties back yard (But entire yard is fenced in). Our home is located in the South Venice area in a suburban neighborhood. It 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. 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 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.

Most people will find it hard to leave your personal private pool but there are 4 different beaches close by. In addition, Shamrock Park and an Inland Waterway are a short walk or bicycle ride away. Shamrock park 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. It is not a home or town for "spring breakers". We ask that all renters be kind and considerate of our neighbors and take good care of the home for the next renters. We are sure you will love this home and the beautiful town of Venice. We supply beach chairs, towels, toys, shark teeth strainers, tennis rackets, and bicycles.

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 Ryan Holder

My wife Lee and I live in New Hampshire. We are both therapists. She works at a psychiatric hospital and I run a child and family practice with my father. We recently had our first child, Jon and he is amazing. We love to be active and go kayaking, canoeing, and biking, but we also love to kick back and relax.

Ryan Holder purchased this house in 2014

Why Ryan Holder chose Venice

My grandparents had a seasonal home in Venice so I have been visiting since I was a child. Now my parents own a home there that they use as a vacation home as well and have been very successfully renting for 6 years now. Lee and I chose this home because we love the area and we know what type of people will love it too. It's important to find the right vacation match for you and we feel comfortable recommending this home to almost any vacationer. Ask us questions!!! We want it to be an unforgettable vacation home experience for you! You'll never think of condos or hotels again!!

What makes this house unique

It has the things we love and more.... including being in walking distance to Shamrock Park and the Inland Waterway, which are two beautiful walking biking, playing areas that are right at your fingertips. That was a big sell for us. Also, we love that you can reach 4 different beaches in 10 minutes or less. We love to go to the Venice Pier and walk out over the ocean and then grab a drink at Sharky's before we jump in for a swim. This home also has the largest pool in the neighborhood and you can truly swim in it unlike some of the smaller 'dipper pools' in Florida. The biking is beautiful along the waterway. We have not yet done the Legacy trail, but I have heard it is nice as well. There are also golf courses in town. Lastly the town of's a true gem. There are not many classy small towns on the coast of Florida anymore. You'll love it if you ARE NOT looking to be smothered by 10 story condos while on your vacation. And lastly, the sunsets. Enjoy the sunsets. Our favorite routine is a walk or bike in the morning in the park, beach around noon, back to our personal private pool for the afternoon and early dinner cooking on the grill, and then back to the beach for sunset. You can kick back and relax or get out and have an adventure, whatever works for your vacation. Enjoy!

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had family flying in from Michigan, Alaska and Colorado so I was nervous about renting a place I hadn't been before but there was absolutely no reason to fear. This house and Ryan were absolutely amazing!

Ryan check in with us on our first day to make sure everything was as we needed it. Any question we had after that he was very quick to respond. They have a service for the pool and the yard so it was all very clean.

The house was exactly as described and they had it perfectly setup for us. When we arrived, everything was clean and ready for us. They had a binder with all the information we would need. The house was fully stocked with all the supplies we needed including a grill which was used a lot! All we had to do was unpack, get some groceries, and enjoy our Florida vacation. We spent a ton of time in and around the wonderful pool, which was perfect. The house was decorated so cute, it was bright and airy, just what we were looking for in our Florida vacation home.

The house is only a few blocks from a wonderful park and huge pathway. There were bikes at the house so we were able to ride over to the park and path and really enjoy our time there. And the house is very close to the beach and any shopping we wanted to do. Perfectly located for all we wanted to do in Venice.

Would rent this place anytime we are in Venice and would highly recommend it to anyone. Can't say enough good things about the house or Ryan.

The house was very well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

The home was very comfortable and well supplied with towels, kitchen items, etc. It was very clean. Much nicer than staying in hotels. The landscaping was very nice compared to the neighborhood.

My only complaint was that it smelled of pets when we walked in the door.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed staying in our home. Thank you for taking good care of it. I will speak with my cleaners about the pet smell. We do allow well behaved pets, but we are very sensitive to the fact that not everyone staying with us is a pet owner. And we do not want pet smells. Thank you, Ryan

Comfortable, great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week, wish it was longer. Home was clean and had everything we could have needed. Pool was really nice. Ryan was really responsive when we had questions. Location is great, easy access to beaches, restaurants, Shamrock Park is really nice. Allows for walking along the inter coastal waterway. The home is in a long established neighborhood with homes of various upkeep. The only knock we had was with a neighbor who left trash on the lawn. We picked it up and disposed of it properly. Ryan's home is well kept and very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our home. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. A apologize about the trash incident. I would hope it was an accident. I'm not sure if it was during your week, but I did hear from my cleaners that one week trash cans were getting blown over in the wind. Thanks again for choosing our home. We hope you consider us in the future. Ryan

A Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a very clean and nicely furnished house. We often vacation in the Venice area and usually stay on the beach but we were here for eight days and didn't miss the beach at all. In fact, this was one of our favorite stays in Florida. We would love to vacation here again in the future.

Fantastic Place & Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly why I use VRBO it was as advertised. It is a older home and been very nicely remodeled and decorated. We always take two totes of supplies just in case, but this home was well stocked by the owner and likely guests like us who leave remaining supplies. Place is very clean, A/C worked great, has plenty of towels/linens, large frig, and has absolutely everything you should need including a gas grill and pool supplies. Casey our dog loved roaming the nicely landscaped yard, and you can tell that the guest who stay here treat it as if it is their home too. The neighborhood was very quite and with the privacy fence you forget anyone lives nearby. It was hot and we spent a lot of time in the pool or sitting at the table under the sun shade. Location to beaches and the main road Tamiami was excellent. We used Shamrock Park which was only a few blocks away to hike and walk the dog. Also the Venice Ferry pass to South Venice Beach where we collected a lot of shark teeth. Unbelievable how many shark teeth wash ashore and once you know what to look for are easy to find. Also took a beautiful boat ride with Sail Venice. Thankfully we went to every beach in Sarasota county several times they may never be the same again. Biggest disappointment was we had to leave a day early because of Hurricane Irma. We loved everything about the home and area except the traffic which were not accustomed to seeing how were country dwellers.. Hopefully this home and Venice will be spared and we can return next year.
