About the Owner
We had this home booked for a whole year and were so looking forward to our vacation. We searched high and low for a home that provided the creature comforts we were looking for to be comfortable for our stay, and this home had it all. The kitchen was well equipped. The living room had a very comfortable leather pit group with recliners on each end. Big screen TV with sound bar. Wi-Fi with printer. All the bedrooms were extremely comfortable with towels galore. The spa and pool were such a treat for us - how fun it was to jump in whenever we wanted. We also enjoyed riding throughout the neighborhoods on the two bikes provided. Peter also had beach chairs, beach umbrellas, cart to carry all of your stuff to the beach, sharks tooth sieve, tennis rackets and balls, fishing rods. Peter was very helpful in answering our questions upon arrival which helped us get settled in. We had a wonderful time in visiting friends in the area, and the house proved to be perfect for entertaining friends and family that visited us. We loved Venice. The whole area from Sarasota to Naples has so much to offer. We visited the Mote Aquarium in Sarasota. Our favorite places to take visitors were Casey Key Fish House and Tiki Bar - killer Margs and Rum runners - the best grouper sandwiches. Snook Haven is so close - just down the road and was always laid back and relaxing - everything there is good to eat. If you go on Thursdays for Banjos, be sure to take a lawn chair as you will probably have to park in the lot at the end of the road and be shuttled down there. It is a fun experience, but also BUSY. So many Italian restaurants in the area, but our fav was Angelo's on Pinebrook and Venice. We love their deli, bakery but most of all they have frozen fresh pasta and also sell frozen homemade alfredo sauce and vodka sauce. A real treat. Check out the Shrimp Guy - Bob - who sells fresh shrimp in the "park-and-ride" lot on River Road going into Snook Haven. He is there on Saturday and Sunday with the most amazing fresh shrimp, grouper, etc. Tell him "Dr. Pat sent ya!" We just left and can't wait to be back!!!
Home away from home!!
Our stay here was amazing. The house is clean, comfortable furniture, and well equipped - from the kitchen down to the pool towels. Upon arriving, there were a few questions we had and Peter was very good to us in helping to get us settled in. We would highly recommend this property to friends or anyone else interested. The community amenities were also top notch. We love the Venice area and already miss it even though we have just left. Thank you, Peter and Sue, for making our stay so wonderful! Our favorite places to take friends and family that visited were Snook Haven and the ride south to north on Casey Key and ending up at Casey Key Fish House and Tiki Bar. The Rum Runners and Marg's are the best!!!
Great vacations home
We rented this house during the month of June 2014. When we arrived at the house, we were quite tired from the long road trip but we immediately felt at home, in a clean and inviting place. Comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. The house was well stocked with all that is required to enter your vacations. The pool was warm and clean, ready for us to jump in. The patio has a good BBQ grill and even had a replacement tank provided. The wifi and high speed internet worked very well and the FIOS + HDTVs provided nice supplement to other local activities. Everything worked according to the plan, no hassle. We registered with the gated community community centre and got our gym membership on day one. This is not a Gold Gym but it is very clean, good machines for a decent vacations maintenance work out. Both the staff and members are quite welcoming and friendly. Really good experience at the community centre. This gated community is extremely well maintained/manicured. Very quiet for those who need a relaxing/recharging vacation. Perfect for us. Yet, it is situated just minutes drive time in excellent road and traffic conditions for outstanding beaches and all the shopping that you may want or need. We have been renting vacation properties for years now and are highly satisfied with this experience, nothing negative comes to mind. The owner, Mr Peter is obviously a pro in customer relationship - he was prompt, courteous, helpful and welcoming. Highly recommended for family and friends.
Our Stay at Pete's place
We had the best time at Pete's rental,it was a lovely home that was well stocked with paper products,cleaning supplies, beach chairs,coolers, pool toys, bikes and yea a very nice gas grill. The pool and hot tub were also WONDERFUL and we enjoyed it so much both day and night.The home is located in a beautiful GATED community and was perfect for taking long walks around nicely landscaped areas and friendly people. The location of the home is very close to the beach (about 10-15 minutes) and to the shops and the restaurants on the island of Venice. Pete was always available when we had any questions about anything at all. After one night in this very nice rental it felt as if we were at our own home back in Maryland. We have used VRBO many times and this was by far was the best home that we stayed in and the bonus was that it was very fairly priced. We will be calling Pete in the future about coming back for a visit. Trust me;If you rent this home you will be glad you did just as we were.
Enjoy your stay in the lovely Southwest Florida area.

A Wonderful Vacation
We found this to be a lovely home just as described. The fully equipped kitchen was wonderful! Everything was neat and well maintained. Pete and Sue could not have been more helpful or responsive. We loved the Venice area and the community of Stoneybrook. The beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas; bikes; fishing gear, etc. all were enjoyed especially when family came to visit.
We would recommend this spot to our friends and in fact we have.
The spacious, lovely home is accurately described and tastefully decorated. The property was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. The modern and fully equipped kitchen had anything a cook would need. The BBQ grill and outdoor dining area allowed a more informal way to dine and enjoy the beautiful weather. The floor plan of the home would suit a wide range of vacationing family sizes.
The community provided a great place to walk and ride bikes. The location was great for beaches, shopping and golfing. Historical downtown Venice was full of quaint shops and numerous restaurants. Peter was very responsive to any needs or questions. I look forward to returning and would highly recommend to others.
