Nice property that needs some attention

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay at this house. It has much to offer, namely the size of the home, the close location to the beach and shopping, and the great pool. The back yard is quite tropical and adds to the pool experience.

I believe it is a bit oversold in the write up. It has the potential for being Luxury, but the needed repairs, deep cleaning, and outdated decor do not say luxury. We had a great time, but for the money would love to see the place refreshed and the Luxury restored.

Owner's Response: I see you stayed at the house three years ago and thank you for booking again. Since then the house has been repainted throughout and carpets replaced with the exception of the master bedroom. I will look closely at your suggestion of a deep clean and check again thoroughly for any repairs which are not apparent to me.

Christmas Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property, especially the pool and nearby beach. We were disappointed we had not been informed that the AC could not be adjusted below 74 degrees. The fans helped but it was warm for us the first several days. All the necessary household items were provided so we only had to provide food and drinks. Although generally OK, the house could use a more through "Spring Cleaning".

Garth was very accommodating.

Owner's Response: Glad to read that our guests enjoyed the beautiful property. 74 degrees is considered quite low but it could well be that after travelling all day from a cooler climate guests may feel the temperature difference initially. Our cleaners spend a minimum of 4 hours preparing the home for the next guests and over and above 'Spring Cleaning' are only possible a couple of times a year.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We arrived was Dark...but Gareth left welcoming lights on. We quickly unpacked, then spent a lovely few hours in the pool..unwinding after a long journey from England. The Villa is well equipped, spacious, with more hanging space for clothes than our own home...good job since my wife virtually bought everything bar the kitchen sink. The Villa is walking distance to the beach, and just a short drive into Venice itself. Gareth was more than helpful when we asked questions about the Villa and Area. I encourage anyone to stay will not be disappointed.

Lovely chilled stress free stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed, spacious and clean villa in a great location. We particularly enjoyed the view of the lake and the privacy that it brought to the pool area. You are not overlooked at all. The radio/intercom was very useful while in the lanai area whether using the BBQ for dinner or sunbathing. Everything was working but we knew that help was close by if we needed it. All interaction with Gareth was a pleasure and gave us confidence that everything would be OK on arrival and beyond. It's a short 2 minute drive to Manasota beach and about 15 minutes to englewood beach with some great bars and restaurants. Altogether a really great place to kick back and relax.

Pretty and Peaceful + Excellent Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Arizona to stay for a week at this house with 7 people. Other family live near the area and we were visiting them too. The house is large and accommodating, with plenty of room for everyone. It is clean and bright. The pool is nice and we got a lot of use out of it. This house sits back from the road and is very peaceful.

The house is a close drive to the beach and it was not at all a hassle to get there. If you are curious about finding prehistoric shark teeth on the beach, this is the place for it. If you concentrate and search for even just 2-3 minutes, you can find one. I had as much fun looking for them as my children did (maybe more fun). We probably found about 80-90 teeth after a couple days.

The owner provides excellent customer service and is very responsive. This is just as important as the house being nice. We did not experience an issue during our stay, but if we had, I am 100% confident he would have addressed it right away. He was very responsive to my e-mails and questions, and friendly over the phone. Good customer service is crucial with anything we deal with and I think it's important to stress for anyone reading these reviews that this rental house comes with good, competent, genuine customer service.
