About Patricia

Hello! We are Michael and Patricia and our family lives (for now) in Colorado. We have 3 fabulous children Sarah, Nolan and Spenser - and don't forget our dog, Jager! We enjoy the beach and all the wonderful activities on the Island every chance we get - but we'd like you to enjoy our second home as well.

Patricia purchased this house in 2013

Why Patricia chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We love the beach and the town of Venice is fantastic. We enjoy the food and the pubs of the night life, the ability to ride a bike or walk anywhere, and we chose this location because we love the beach side community.

What makes this house unique

A walker's paradise and everything within a few blocks of the Blue House.

Wonderful welcoming beach home

  • 5 of 5

We were three generations of guests, grand parents, daughters and grand daughter, and so much enjoyed our stay. Our puppy came with us as well. We road bikes to the beach, enjoyed cooking at the house, and found everything to be clean, quiet and welcoming. The play area at the park across the street was perfect, and we walked to town several times too for ice cream, fresh croissants and other delights. Just right for a beach holiday. There was a welcome basket when we got to the house, so thoughtful, and piles of clean towels. All sweet touches.

Wonderful location with quick access by foot or bike to beach and restaurants. Fabulous sunset at the jetty! We really enjoyed the walk down the tree lined parkway to the beach. House was inviting, clean, and well appointed kitchen with everything we needed. Also had, beach towels, chairs, umbrella, bikes, and laundry facilities. We enjoyed the weekend farmers market and listened to a free outdoor concert. The owners were very easy to work with. They provided information on Stand-Up Paddle Boarding and many good restaurants. Be sure to stop at The Upper Crust for a yummy scone and Devonshire cream. We will definitely be going back to Blue House!

Blue Island House!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such a great vacation house for a family! The house was just as pictured, clean and inviting. It was perfect for a family with small children. The rooms are very roomy and comfortable. We were able to enjoy the beach everyday! We also loved that the home is so close to the lovely Venice Ave.
