We had a great time 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Find!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderfully equipped with a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Hello and I hope this review is helpful. First off, Max and Lana were flexible and accommodating and their communication was amazing.

We stayed in their home for a little over a month while we searched for a long term rental. Since all of our belongings were in storage we especially appreciative that the home literally had everything we could ask for. The kitchen was equipped with everything my fiancee needed to produce fantastic meals. Plenty of towels and bedding. We also enjoyed the bikes and beach gear that was left for us in the garage. The "florida snow shovels" were especially fun to use while we hunted for shells and shark's teeth at the beach.

The home also has a great whole house filtration system that made showers a joy and the RO filter in the kitchen eliminated the need to buy bottled water.

If we were ever in need we would not hesitate to book again. This home is a tremendous value.

Perfect for me

  • 5 of 5

The home was well appointed, everything you need was there. Nice large master with its own bath, split bedroom so your guest has more privacy. Bicycles were provided, a pass for the south Venice beach which can only be accessed by ferry, screened lanai, internet, washer and dryer. Quiet residential neighborhood. The owners are conscientious, and very accessible by email. My month's stay was a delight.

More than advertised

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this home. The amenities that we enjoyed were more than advertised by the owner. During the month my wife and I stayed, we went to the beach nearly every morning. There are 3 beaches within 15 minutes of this home, Englewood, South Venice and Venice. Venice Avenue is only a short drive away and there you can find many restaurants, small shops, nightly entertainment and you are a half mile from Venice Beach which also has occasion musical evening entertainment. Plus it is located a half mile from Tamiami Trail which has many more restaurants and shops. The home itself is beautifully decorated, the furniture is very comfortable and has all the small conveniences of your own home! If you are planning a visit to the Venice area this is a must place to stay!
