Location, location, location! Just a 3 block walk to a free boat ride to a private beach on Manasota Key. I provide 5 beach chairs, 5 beach towels and a cooler for your use. The beach ferry runs every day except Wednesday, from 9:30am to sunset. Up to 6 people can use the ferry pass I provide. I am pet friendly and have a fenced back yard. My home is a quaint, clean, older 2BR/1.5 bath with kitchen, washer/dryer, lanai, pool, WiFi and Comcast TV. 40 minutes to Sarasota and the #1 USA beach at Siesta Key! It is NOT a fancy, newer home but is very comfy and my guests love it. For privacy, my home is on a large wooded lot with no neighbors on either side. It has an outdoorsy feel to it with wood ceilings, wood floors and a fireplace. It's only about 2 blocks as the crow flies to the Gulf a...Location, location, location!

It has an outdoorsy feel to it with wood ceilings, wood floors and a fireplace. It's only about 2 blocks as the crow flies to the Gulf and you can sometimes hear the surf crashing when the wind is in the right direction! The master BR has a queen bed, the other BR has 2 singles. Both are upstairs. The master BR has 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets for a great nights sleep. I provide all soaps, detergents, shampoo, and paper products. Feel free to use any and all of my spices, olive oil, etc for cooking. I am a long time Venice resident and can give advice on great, unique places us locals love to go. Just 10 minutes to shopping center with Walmart, Publix, etc. This is my home, so no smoking please. Other than that, treat it like your own home. Special discount of $200 if you rent the whole month of September!More

What we noticed as we walked in was a broken kitchen window with duct tape so old it didn't stick any more. There was a hole in the ceiling above the stairs that had water dripping through. The yard was mostly weeds and sand. The...More

Bruce is very, very nice. Sadly, his house is not. The surface of the pool deck is mangled, so even with the strategically placed rugs, you need to wear shoes. The pool is small, about 6’ x 12’. That’s not too bad, but what the...More
