Well Maintained and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the house for the month of Aprill while looking for a retirement home. The rental is located in a quiet neighborhood and located near beaches, shopping and restaurants. The owner is very accommodating.

Our month stay was very enjoyable & we highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place, fully loaded with everything you might need (from towels, bedding, pots & pans, cleaning items, etc.). We wanted to take one of the king mattresses’ with us, a fantastic bed and a great night’s sleep! The neighbors are friendly and couldn’t be more helpful with our questions & recommendations. A cozy, comfortable place to call home for as long as you choose to stay, close to beaches (ferry ride to private beach was a fun perk), & downtown Venice. The owner was extremely accommodating & only a phone call away. Our month stay was very enjoyable & we highly recommend!

Lots of space!

  • 4 of 5

Great house with lots of space to live. We were there with 2 children and there was plenty of room to play when they got up early in the morning.

Great contact with owner and nice option of refunded cleaning fee if we cleaned ourselves. Definitely a plus for our budget!

Succeeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this cozy little house. The house was fully stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, trash bags, etc when we arrived which saved us on our already high grocery bill!! You won't be disappointed with your stay. Thanks Josephine!
