Venice in march
Great place to spend a month
Perfect location for us
The south Venice location was perfect for connecting with family and friends in the Venice area. Enjoyed walking and riding bikes in the quiet neighborhood and at wonderful Shamrock Park. There is quick access to the intercoastal walk/bike way from Shamrock Park and Scenic Drive. House was clean and well stocked with kitchenware. Beds were comfortable but I preferred to add another mattress pad over the waterproof covering. The TV options were limited but it was nice to have a TV in the bedroom also. There was a black mold issue in the bathroom by the back door. Owners were going to check it out. Tiny bugs (maybe ants) kept coming back on the kitchen counters even though we were careful to keep them clean. Very convenient having the washer and dryer in the garage. Appreciated the beach chairs and bikes available in the garage too.
We wish the tenants would have told us about the bugs - we have a pest control company that would have come immediately and fixed the problem (we haven’t had that problem before, but this is Florida, and insects can be a problem, which is why we have a pest control company). Likewise, we weren’t aware of any other issues; we would have dealt with them immediately, as we always do. It is a pity that we weren’t made aware of these issues when they arose.
Good Location for Access to Beaches
We enjoyed our stay in the Venice area. The weather was great. The access to Shamrock Park nature trails and close proximity to beaches added to the fun.
The house met our needs. It was equipped with dishes, linens and basics. We liked having a two car garage and the two bedrooms on either side of the house.
Svetlana was quick to respond to our inquiries regarding check in and check out directions.
We had a great time 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
We had a really great time at Lana and max’s Home
There were a few kinks that needed worked out which did take away from some of our vacation time since we wanted to be there when repair teams had to come in
But once everything was fixed it was a wonderful vacation spot to spend the month
I only wish we could have spent longer
There home is Centrally located in Venice Florida withPlenty of things to do
And a lot of entertainment
It would have been a little better if the sports channels had been on the cable line up
As we are from Lafayette Indiana and
Purdue university was in the final ten conference so we had to search out sports bars to watch the games
But the whole crew at Bogies accommodated us and we had a great time there also
Thank you to Lana and Max once again
I would love be to make a return trip here
Relaxed Comfortable Rental House
We spent March 2017 in Max and Lana's house in South Venice. It has everything a renter might want: comfortable furniture, plenty of space, garage with bikes and beach gear, screened porch with hot tub, and an amazingly well-stocked kitchen. The bikes can be ridden to Shamrock Park where there are tennis courts, bike paths, and a nature center, or one can access the Venetian Waterway Park which is a bike/walk path along the intracoastal waterway that runs for many miles. The house also includes a pass on the South Venice Beach Ferry that takes passengers across the intracoastal to a section of semi-private beach. South Venice is a large residential neighborhood comprised of modest homes and not much else, so there really isn't anywhere one can bike or walk to aside from those already mentioned; shopping or beaching really involves a car trip.
Venice Island (just to the north) has a pleasant downtown with some good Italian restaurants, some interesting shops, and frequent activities like music, art shows, etc. in the main park. It has a reputation of “rolling up the sidewalk” at 8 pm, and we concur that there will not be much to interest singles or kid-free couples. If you go, you should visit Detwilers for fresh seafood, veggies, and deli, visit Captain Eddies for a great seafood lunch under the Tiki hut, and visit Nokomis Grove for citrus and ice cream.
Beyond the beach at the ferry, Venice City beach, Nokomis, Casey Key, Manasota Key, and Casperson beaches are easily available by car, and even in March (spring break high season) we had no parking problems at these locations.
We would highly recommend this rental home for those wanting a laid-back, stress-free, affordable home for a warm winter holiday.
Thank you, Steve and Sue! We loved having you as guests, and we would be very happy to welcome you back at some point in the future!!
This cottage turned out to be a great find and fit for our family. We stayed for over a month while in the process of moving to the area from Northern Virginia and used it as a jumping off point for visiting the many beaches along Sarasota's coastline and getting to know our new neighborhood. The children loved the free ferry rides to a private beach, right around the corner from this home as well as the nearby playground and tennis courts at Shamrock Park. My husband enjoyed the hot tub, and we all appreciated the thought that went into the amenities provided, including dishwasher and laundry detergent, spices and paper products. Although they weren't in town at the time, the owners, Max and Lana were very responsive via email to our needs throughout our stay: When a major appliance broke, it was replaced within a day. When it turned out we needed to stay an extra day, Max and Lana arranged for that as well, offering us a discount given the length of our stay. I'd definitely recommend the place to family and friends as a great find here in Venice.
