Best Vacation Home Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay in Joe and Carneys home. They are amazing to work with and they have gone above and beyond in decorating their home and making sure you have everything you need for a wonderful vacation. It isn't your typical vacation rental, it is home. From the soft towels and sheets to comfy mattresses and pillows, beach supplies, ferry pass and kitchen utensils, the pool and lime tree in the back yard. This home is by far our favorite rental in Venice and we have been coming down for 19 years.

If I could change anything, the ONLY thing I would change is the mattress size, at least a queen. Don't get me wrong, these are the MOST comfortable beds I've ever slept on, but when you are use to a king bed and step down to a double/full, you feel like you are gonna fall of the bed. Just an old womans personal preference. Like I said, the beds and whole house are amazing. Thanks again Joe and Carney for sharing your wonderful home with us.

The home was beyond my expectations for this area. You only need your suitcase, as everything has been provided. The decor is fabulous! I would buy this home if it were for sale! My only suggestion would be a ceiling fan above the outside dining table and a clothesline for wet towels and suits. We are hoping to rent again next Spring. Thank you for the PERFECT vacation, Joe & Carnie!

Nice Home - Clean and well maintained in quiet neighborhoood

  • 5 of 5

Hi Joe and Carnie:

Thanks for making your home available.

We really enjoyed our stay at Venice Retreat. It is a quiet area and we enjoyed staying in a clean well cared for home.

Sitting in the lanai for breakfast was a treat.

It was nice to have a pass to the Venice ferry which goes to a nice quiet beach that was great for beach combing.

We were also impressed with the well supplied home - Lots of towels, supplies and kitchenware

Also appreciated the good Internet service.

Good customer service, prompt replies to questions. Would recommend to friends.

We look forward to coming back again.

This home has everything you are looking for. Close to the beach ferry, ferry pass, cooler and towels,beach chairs, bikes are provided by the owners. Great dining out if this is what your looking for also. Very tastefully decorated, Carnie has done a great job, if I every purchase a home in Florida I would want to hire her to decorate it for us. Clean ----- I Would rate this home 10 out of 10.

They have all the gadgets a kitchen would need, dishes, pots and pans and the list goes on. We had the opportunity to stay an extra night and we did. I would give this residence 10 out of 10.

I have recommended this property to our friends.

Joe and Carnie are quick to respond to your emails and questions. Excellent to deal with also. I would also rate the owners 10 out of 10.

We are planning a return trip next year, hopeful longer!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time for two weeks. The house is very well appointed, has everything you need. Kitchens and baths are new. Pool is terrific, the weather was in the 60's the first few days and the heated pool was great!

Great location, we used the bikes starting at Shamrock Park to go to Venice. Used the ferry to Caspersen Beach and had fun looking for shark teeth.

Also, we would highly recommend SailVenice , we thoroughly enjoyed their sunset cruise.

Hope we can return next year!

A excellent rental property for your vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that the property is even nicer then it appears in there rental listing! The updates to the house were impressive and you just cant beat the enclosed pool and patio area. We arrived to a very clean home with plenty of creature comforts. The neighborhood was extremely quit and route 41 was just blocks away to take you anywhere. The owners are excellent care takers of there property and provided excellent communications through out our stay, both before and after. The beaches, bars and restaurants, and there are many, are mostly all very good. My wife and I would diffidently recommend this property to others.
