We had a fantastic stay at Joanne's home. The house is quiet and spacious. Comfy beds, a grill outside and other nice touches made this an ideal location for a relaxing family vacation. Joanne was responsive and friendly. The ferry to an essentiality private beach is a short walk away. Venice is a small town, but the downtown area is quaint and fun to stroll.
The house is everything the post says it is!y There were 7 in our group and everyone was very comfortable. It was great to have space for everyone to spread out or come together. The house felt welcoming and warm.
The ferry was so close that we literally walked around the corner to ride to the lovely private beach. When we wanted to go to Sarasota beaches, it was just a short drive. Grocery stores are very close for shopping. Everything was very convenient.
Joanne's place was even lovelier than the photos. My family of three was looking for a quiet, natural setting and the private beach and other local beaches were perfect for us. The local Audubon sanctuary (bird rookery) was amazing. The house had great amenities and spaces where we could be together and in our own space. It was very clean and nicely furnished. Beds were comfortable. Local area had great restaurants, a nice movie theater, walking/biking trails, places to rent kayaks, etc. Host was a text away and was available when needed.
Our stay was absolutely delightful. Joanne provided so many little amenities and the private beach is breathtaking. We enjoy privacy and so appreciated this wonderful community and its efforts to prevent the commercial real estate beach debauchery that is so pervasive in this country. We can offer nothing nothing but kudos for our host and her delightful house.
