About Kathy Smith

Our family are long term Florida Residents and have enjoyed growing up and living in the Venice Area.

Kathy Smith purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Kathy Smith chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We chose to build this home here because of the unique area. It has the convenience of being near the amenities of a city yet has a rural feel as soon as you turn off the main road. It is a quaint area that is the last unspoiled beach in Sarasota County.

Great Guest House

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on VRBO are exactly as the house is. It is furnished with everything that you could possible need and decorated beautifully. Location is close to several beaches, close to downtown Venice, shopping center and many really good restaurants, a favorite Sharkey's. There are plenty of bike riding trails in the area as well as hiking trails. Kathy and Jerry were very friendly and easy to work with regarding rental. Would definitely rent here again.

Ideal Beach Location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this bungalow was close to a number of beaches. Restaurants and shops were only a short

drive away. The bungalow was clean, well equipped and comfortable.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we felt so lucky to have found this place. Everything

about the area added to our Florida experience. Thank you Jerry and Kathy.

A Great Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My few days at the Smith Family bed & breakfast were a complete joy. A wonderful play to stay and a wonderful family to stay with. I would recommend it a thousand times over to anyone considering a stay in the Venice area. The accommodations are beautiful and located in a very accessibile area. I would definitely recommend staying with the Smiths on your vacation. Thanks Kathy and Jerry!!

Great Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We're so glad we picked this vacation house! It is clean, recently renovated, nicely furnished two bedroom with a nice large kitchen. There is also a small outdoor porch area with BBQ grill as well as nice swing set and trampoline nearby. We spent most of our days at the beach, but also enjoyed relaxed evenings here and the beds are so comfortable!

The local owners responded quickly to questions and the rental process was quick & easy. We received detailed info about the property prior to arrival and the owners were very welcoming, responsive and helpful during our stay.

The house is on a quiet residential street, on a dead-end road, but also close to everything we needed. It's less than a mile away from our favorite Venice beach, Manasota Beach, which is our favorite for sharks teeth hunting!! There's also a good selection of amenities (restaurants, grocery stores, etc) nearby in Venice & Englewood.

We love the South Venice area and would definitely recommend this rental house to family and friends! Thank you Kathy and Jerry!
