Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath home, with heated pool.

Located a block from Shamrock Park and close to 4 different beaches, you'll enjoy this completely updated 2/2/1 heated pool home with large corner lot. For those of you that enjoy the beach, the ferry to the South Venice's private beach is a brisk bike ride away (pass included with rental). Easy access to shopping, eateries and hours of outdoor entertainment or you can sip on a cool one by your own private pool...need more pictures? Just let me know!

Between the beaches, pool, and park you might not find yourself inside very much, but the home does have three televisions with comcast cable and free wifi.

As for Venice, this charming beach town will become your home away from home. Known as the shark tooth capital of the world, enjoy strolls along the local beaches looking for these little souvenirs. Take a short drive down to Sharkey's at the Pier for a sunset-drenched drink or tasty meal. See the dolphins, bring a fishing pole, or just watch the sun set along the gulf waters. Venice beaches include conservation parks, bird sanctuaries, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and biking trails. Venice’s quaint, palm tree-lined downtown is famous for its art galleries, antique stores, restaurants, and clothing stores.

Nearby Sarasota is filled with activities including the renowned Mote Marine Aquarium, the Ringling Museum of Art, the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Jet ski and sailboat rentals, and St. Armand's Circle (great for dining, shopping, or strolling) to name a few. For the more adventure filled days, Busch Gardens, Disney's Magic Kingdom, MGM and SeaWorld are all only 2 hours away!

It is very important to us that all renters get the experience they are looking for. Please ask us any questions you may have before booking. We look for renters who will take good care of our home. We are dog lovers and do allow clean, well behaved dogs, but we ask that you pick up after them.

Very Nice Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

We were at Jason's home for a week, January 4 through 11, and enjoyed our stay. It was quite cool that week, we weren't able to use the pool. However, we really enjoyed sitting out on the patio/lanai area every day as much as possible. We absolutely loved the neighborhood the home is located in. We would really like to purchase a vacation home in this area, too. Shamrock Park, which is basically right down the street, is a very easy walk. One of the paved trails/walkways is right along the Intercoastal Waterway, which is absolutely beautiful! People ride bikes there, walk, etc. It's a great place.

We also took the ferry over to the private beach, which was like a five-minute ride, seeing pelicans all over. The weather was in the mid-70-'s that day, and it was great. Many people were sitting out at the beach, and we took a long walk along the beach. There were hundreds of seashells there to collect & people were looking for shark's teeth. There was plenty of shopping in this area, several beaches. Historic Venice was very nice with lot of cute shops to walk through.

We liked this home, but, unfortunately, the night we arrived there was no heat, and it was during Florida's cold spell. We phoned Jason that evening, and he told us to call a local plumber, but the plumber said he was required to speak to the owner, but it all got straightened out, and he came out the next morning and replaced the thermostat, cleaned the overhead vents, then the heat worked fine.

The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, but we are used to a king-sized bed at home, so we were a little crowded. The home was extremely well stocked, and we only had to purchase our actual meals. All of the staples were already there, including paper towels, toilet paper, washcloths, towels, salt & pepper, sugar, coffee, filters, etc., etc., just real nice. One of the things I would change about the home is to provide more lighting in the living room/dining room area. There is a ceiling fan above the dining room table, but no light in it. There was no overhead lighting in the living or dining room, only a couple of lamps with dark shades, which made it difficult to read at times in the evenings. We would definitely stay at Jason's home again. He was very nice to talk to and very helpful.

GREAT FAMILY PLACE, GREAT OWNER!

  • 5 of 5

The location is great! Right by Shamrock park. We walked our dogs around the waters edge just 2 blocks from the house! The pool was warm and the AC cool! The BEST Thing about this house is that it is WELL STOCKED!

Usually you end up having to buy stuff at walmart. Not Here! Everything we needed was here. Kitchen is well stocked with everything imaginable. AS for the beach, umbrellas, toys, ice chest, diggers to sift for shark teeth, everything. I would have spent quite a bit of money buying these things and then leaving them there! Very impressed. They even have extra sunglasses and reading glasses for us! WOW> THank you Jason for letting us bring our dogs and for everything! We WILL be back! Greg and Tracy

Good Location

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week in October. The location for us was great. There is a park and walking path two minutes down the street we enjoyed. The house was very clean and the pool was great. I would have no problem staying here again. Thanks Jason!

Nice Home for the money .

  • 3 of 5

Overall the home is nice , in a great location and and close to everything . There is a nice pool , located on a corner lot in a quiet neighborhood . The house is well equipped with pretty much most things one would need . It is clean , although it could use a "deep" cleaning , very dusty artificial plants , curtains and baseboards . With allergies it could be a problem . When we arrived there was a car on the property which caused us some concern thinking someone was there . A simple notification by the renter would have been nice . The furniture in the living and dinning room are good , the beds on the other hand are not very comfortable , small and in need of replacement . Rentals should have a least a queen not a full size mattress . Overall the rental is what you get for the money .
