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.

average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The house is on shared property with the owners house but its positioned in a way that you have privacy. The nearest beach is under 10 mins drive away and i walked there one day which took about 40 mins. Manasota beach gets a lot of people but much more quiet than the big beaches around Sarasota.

The hosts are exremely friendly and made our stay in Venice really special. The house itself had everything we needed and would definitely be a place we'd like to visit again.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

My dad and I stayed here for a week and it was great! The guest house has two good sized bedrooms and a spacious bathroom, stocked with plenty of towels. The owners were extremely accommodating and even left us some food for breakfast our first night, since we arrived at a very late hour. The guest house is situated in a nicely shaded area. We really enjoyed our stay and we hope to stay here again if we ever come back to Venice!!

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.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this quaint cozy cottage. Very clean, comfortable beds, large kitchen, garage for car, washer and dryer, very private and the owners, Kathy and Jerry were the best, so friendly and helpful, made us feel so welcome. So close to the beaches, all types of restaurants and shopping in Venice and surrounding towns. This is a perfect getaway. Thank You Kathy and Jerry.

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!!
