Wonderful vacation retreat: clean, full of extra amenities, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks at your South Venice Retreat! Your home was welcoming with its outside, updated curb appeal, then, throughout the home, including the trendy, appealing decor, to the charming outdoor side garden, barbecue area, enclosed lanai seating/dining area and awesome pool. Venice and the surrounding area is chock full of varied ways to spend your Florida time: beaches, bike paths, parks, water activities, great dining, arts/theater nearby and history sites of early Florida. Our only regret was that there are so many other people in "high season" on Tamiami Trail clogging up that main artery! It made your Venice Retreat a joy to return to at the end of each busy day. Thanks for a great get away!

Relaxing and homey

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent renters from VRBO and this house was great. The owners thought of everything. The home décor was colorful, fun and creative. Comfortable beds and the ceiling fan made for great sleeping. With the new grill, well equipped kitchen, plenty of glassware, dishes and even spices meal preparation was easy.The outdoor table in the lanai was great, the pool heated and relaxing. South Venice is quiet and easy to get around with many nearby beautiful beaches but we loved the free ferry pass to the private beach the most. Having bikes and the nearby bike trail was an added bonus. All around this was a great relaxing vacation home, truly a retreat.

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.

Beautiful home well kept, very clean.

  • 5 of 5

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!
