Vacation Home Rental Description:



Venice Island Villas Mansion, 5+ BRs, Heated Pool, Wifi, Hdtv, Sleeps 16

Dial up the Beach Boys - this beach home?s got real surfer?s attitude. From outside, the banana yellow exterior and teal blue door reveal only that inside, someone?s having much more fun than you. Venice Island?s Villas Mansion would love to have you.

Your master suite will fit your whole family if traveling with kids or young teens - the space holds a king bed and a queen-sized futon. A large second bedroom has the same configuration - making this home a great choice for lots of families vacationing together. Two queen beds in the third bedroom comfortably fit four more guests and, yes, there?s new furniture, too.

Bedrooms four and five? Two twin beds in both - who will room together and enjoy secretive late-night chats? The large office doubles as a sixth bedroom with a queen sleeper bed. Three bathrooms allow even a large group of 16 to get out the door on schedule - when restaurant reservations or a day trip calls. Each bathroom has a standing shower and one has a bathtub - of great use to parents with younger children.

Get to know the outdoors from the sanctuary of your lanai - a screened, outdoors living room. Within? A large heated pool - big enough for every game you can think of and lots of seating for the party poopers who ?don?t want to get their hair wet? (throw them in anyway). Your gorgeous heated pool has brand new heating machinery - indicative of the owner?s care in their property.

An air-conditioned pool house doubles your entertainment space with a bar, table and chairs and sofa - kids will hide here as others seek - while adults will like the chance to read in certain peace and quiet. Fish netting above the bamboo bar makes it pretty clear: Its always 5 o?clock right here.

The living room?s high vaulted ceilings carry fantastic Florida breezes and the terrazzo tile floors - well, they feel pretty great, too. Dark blue micro fiber couches sit prettily next to white wicker rockers and side tables - while the large space means the ambiance stays bright, uncluttered and airy. Coming for the holidays? A large LCD TV and available central heating make this property fantastic all year round.

Wifi internet is ready and working from the minute you arrive - traveling without this life-line can be so frustrating.
The kitchen has everything you?ll need, including a garbage disposal (because kids used to one at home will never learn otherwise). Yellow walls suggest fresh lemonade and fresh muffins as vacation staples - and a breakfast nook with white wicker seating keeps your happy campers close. A brand new dining table in dark wood seats eight on modern chairs with white cushions.

From home, it?s just three blocks to the beach - grab your banana-seat bike or race there in flip-flops. How many shark?s teeth can you find in the sand? Downtown Venice is nearby, too. Pet owners will love the proximity to nearby Venice dog beach, Brohard Paw Park. Your backyard will never again compare.

Stroll 15 minutes from the house to sunny Venice Pier or - at night - try great live music at Sharky?s. Google map the property and its surroundings (405 Villas Drive, Venice, Florida 34285) - this location has it all.

Great Location Plenty of Room
A guest from Commerce Township, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
We had 8 adults and 4 17 year old girls in the house and had plenty of room for all. The pool was a great time for all. The house could have been cleaner. MOST DEFFENTELY needs new patio furniture. We had to buy bag chairs because the chairs that went with the table were so bad. Also said paper towel and tp are provided but we had to buy both. Only one roll of tp per bathroom and one roll of paper towel were provided. We stayed in the Realto 4 years ago and it was much cleaner and nicer.

villas mansion great location
George V. from Alma, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014
The house was great. Size and location were excellent. The furniture is a bit tired deck chairs need replacing. pool house smelled strongly of mold. I wouldn't suggest using it as a bedroom and the 6th bedroom is more of a walkthru to the pool. It was pricey for what it was but I guess you pay for location here. I would recommend it to rent again.

Great Location
Bob R. from Bel Air, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in February, 2014
The two best features of this home (not mansion) are the location and the pool. The furnishings are average and insufficient for 16 people. We contacted the maintenance people 2 times and they responded promptly. However, there are numerous small maintenance items that we ignored during our brief stay.

405 Villas
Terry E. from Virginia Beach, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013
Sleeping arrangements are marginal at best for 11 adults and a teenager. Pool is great; however,there are only 4 chairs in the pool area; should be more. Need to change the oil in the shower in the master bath. Also, the shower stream control handle needs to be replaced. Dining and lounging arrangements are good.

Friendly reunion
Robert W. from Ruskin, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013
We rented the property for a reunion/birthday celebration. We had about 14 people staying here and it was a great fit for us to hang out by the pool or even sit around a play a game. This home is also close to the beach and a Sharky which has great food. Checkout time was 10:00 but I called the morning of checkout and was allowed till12:00. I thought we would need the extra time just for us cleaning up behind ourselves but we actually left at 10:30. This is a great home and location and extremely peaceful

Kitchen utensils could do with updating/rethinking but no major problem. Garden furniture definitely needs replacing, mouldy sunshade and only enough seats for 6. Overall though a property that I would be very happy to return to.

Great family holiday in Venice beach
Brian K. from Donaghadee, ARDS recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
Our family of 11 ( three generations ) had a super time at Villas Mansion. The accommodation suited us very well and the deep pool which was covered in, was really grandsons loved diving into the really deep pool. My granddaughters loved walking into Venice Beach and my wife and I found the short walk to the beach most enjoyable. We would love to return again and would recommend the villa to others.

This house should not be rented again until it has maintenan done
Russell G. from Littleton, CO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 14 days in June, 2013
This house needs work done immediately. Sliding glass doors that do not work. The pool leaks a lot. They did not cut the grass in the back or side yard which led to the huge snake in the pool area. The bed and the linens were so old and uncomfortable. The pots and pans were old and cheap, could not cook with them. We have rented homes all over and this was by far the worst experience with a home we have ever had and I would not recommend anyone to stay in that home until they repair all the damages and invest some money in proper cookware and linens. This was a major disappointment!

Venice vacation June 2013
Greg S. from Sparta, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013
Overall we loved the location and the vacation. Nice old town area (but the shops close fairly early). Convenient to Sarasota and day trips to Tampa and Orlando. The property needs some TLC...old carpet, sluggish toilets (bring your own plunger...just sayin). The management delivered a new futon mattress while we were there so the place is definitely being maintained. Pool was great. The house appears to have had rooms added over the years so the central AC is supplemented by some room AC units...but they worked well. We used our own Crock Pot and electric skillet so I can't say how well the stove works. Overall Villas was what we expect to find in a rental property. No surprises. And that usually helps make the vacation!

disappointing ...
A guest from Allegan, MI does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013
We stayed a week last year so knew that VRPro's concept of "mansion" is far different than mine (or the dictionary's). But did not expect mildew towels and bedsheets (we bought bleach and rewashed all on our "mansion" vacation. Other irritations include slow draining sink in bathroom (unchanged from 2012), hole in silverware container in dishwasher, fridge that cycled from 58 degrees when we moved in to OK later on (used ice chest that was rapidly provided). We looked elsewhere for 2014.

405 Villas Drive
A guest from Lutz, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013
Loved the location, easy access to beach (seemed more than two blocks but was a pleasant and safe walk), close to the grocery store and shopping, the kitchen was very well stocked, the two twin rooms were disappointing (no privacy and dryer is in one of the rooms)-this would be a good set up for someone with kids/teens, All the rooms were large, plenty of linens, pool was great, warm and clean, don't count on using the cottage for anyone that has allergies, everyone enjoyed the open floor plan, it was great to have two dining room tables-everyone could eat together. Very clean. If you want a great dinner check out Pineapples early bird menu-it was a hit with everyone! Easy walk to Sharky's and the pier via the beach(1 mile)

This house is great for a large group! Great open living space, 3 bath, technically I would not consider this a 5 BR however. It is 4 with 2 beds in a laundry room and no windows. The rest is great, could use some TLC - but I do understand it is a rental.

NICE NEIGHBORHOOD AND WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO TOWN. THE YOUNG PEOPLE ENJOYED THE SHORT WALK TO THE BEACH AND MOST OF ALL THE GATHERING BY THE POOL. INCIDENTALLY, KEVIN BROUGHT OVER A POOL COVER TO HELP HEAT THE POOL. THANK YOU KEVIN FOR BEING SO PROMPT. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE WAS THERE WERE ONLY 4 WASHCLOTHS FOR 16 PEOPLE...I'M SURE IF I HAD ASKED, KEVIN WOULD'VE BROUGHT THEM RIGHT OVER.

my rental experience
A guest from Doylestown, PA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012
In general, the house was fine for our purpose. We had isssues with the airconditioning all week. The heat kept coming on for no reason. We later discovered the dryer vent wasn't attatched in the back and it was causing the air conditioning to freeze up. The decor could use some updating. It would have been nice to have basic staples like salt and pepper so we didn't have to purchase lg containers just for the week. Other than that, it was just ok.

Great Rental Home in a beautiful neighborhood
Nadine H. from Blainville, QB recommends this property.
Stayed for 21 days in July, 2012
I was not disappointed with this rental. It was extremely well equipped and in a beautiful Neighborhood. We were close to everything we needed (Publix, Walgreens, Dollar Store, etc). Everything was in working order. The only negative was the BBQ had a big gaping hole in the bottom so the ash tended to fall out. The access to the beach has been closed off so we would drive to the Public Venice Beach location which was really not far and free parking. I would definitely rent this property again.

Big enough for our large family reunion. The screened in pool was the biggest hit for everyone. The fishermen were satisfied with all the different locations nearby to cast their lines. Visiting downtown Venice was a breeze, too. Plenty of parking and a quiet neighborhood. Would recommend this home to anyone heading this way.

First time but not the last.
Wilma M. from Creston, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
My family and I enjoyed our stay in this home. The inside was everything we expected. We had more than enough room. The only complaint I have was that it would be nice if some instructions were given to beach access.

Great house for a large family in Venice
A guest from Morrow, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool was excellent, although a little rough on little ones feet. The house was well kept and fun. The tile throughout the house, although very pretty made for very slippery walks into the house from the pool. A great time was had and we plan on coming back to the area again next year.

Enjoyed our time at Villas Mansion
Barbara C. from Ottawa, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012
Our family of 10 (7 adults, 1 3-yr-old and two 1 yr-olds) thoroughly enjoyed our one week vacation at Villas Mansion. The pool offered us a wonderful way to relax together. The house was close enough to walk to Venice for ice creams/drinks as well as to make longer trips to Tampa and Sarasota for hockey and baseball events. The only thing we missed was a gas barbecue.

The beach, the sun and the company made it fun!
Wayne V. from Brampton, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 9 days in March, 2012
This is the second consecutive year we have stayed in this home and we had a great time again. The beach is nearby (less than a 5 minute walk) and the kids got tons of use out of the pool. We had 3 families totalling 16 people and were quite comfortable with the space and sleeping arrangements (although 1 pull-out couch needs to be replaced) The home is in desparate need of some maintenance however. The pool leaks and is missing tiles, a ceiling fan was about to fall apart (until I fixed it myself),window unit AC is loud and dated, the sliding door to the pool is old and in need of replacement, the dryer needs 3 60-minute cylcles to dry a load and the fridge doesn't keep food(beer)cold enough.Despite all these flaws, it is tough to have a poor time at the beach in Venice!

Clean Comfortable House
Hannah B. from Athens, Wisconsin recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012
This house may not be as "mansion-like" as it comes across advertised, but it is a wonderful, clean, spacious place to stay. We had eight people and it was perfect for us. The beds were comfortable and the tile/hard floors were perfect for coming in "wet" from the pool. The property manager was very helpful. We left some stuff at the house and he so kindly mailed it to us. Thanks!

One of our best family vacation's!
Bruce B. from Wilmington, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012
The house was very roomy for 14 people, and there was room for more. The kitchen was stocked better than any house we have rented before. Plenty of room for seating and relaxing together. The heated pool was wonderful! It was bigger than we expected.(a hot tub outside would have been nice) We had a great time in the town of Venice, great little shops and cafe's. We had to call the house manager to help us unlock the pool house door, and he came over right away, very quick! He was very pleasant and helpful. Great service!The only downside to our visit was that the discription of two of the rooms on the website was not clear, we had planned on putting two couples in the two rooms with the two twin beds, they were going to push the beds together to make a king. But there was a doorway between them with just a screen for privacy, and this was not shown on the site. The rooms were very nice, very cute, perfect for kids or singles sharing a room, but not good for privacy since there was not a real door between them. We had to make adjustments to the sleeping arangements after we arrived. It would have been nice to know about this before we got there. A door would be a good idea! Also, better instructions on how to access the beach is much needed, we were never told which entrance to use and most of the beach is private, as well as more like three blocks to the beach instead of two, but the beach is very nice, and quiet too!Overall the vacation was wonderful! We hope to come back next year!

Mostly pleased
A guest from Pagosa Springs, CO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011
Living area, dining area and kitchen lovely. The two front bedrooms are c onnected with some sort of closet that houses the washer-That is not too great; therefore, everything in both rooms can be heard by the other party. I used the bedroom with no windows and the hot water tank and washer took up most of what I uess is supposed to be a closet. The main bathroom is clean, but the shower looks to be not clean because of all the brown caulking aroung the floor-We did have a lovely week and thank you.

A guest from Charleston, SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in October, 2011
There was not a door to separate the rooms with twin beds., just a screen. This made it a little ackward for four adults to share that area. We ended up taking a lot of blankets and trying to rig a door to seperate the spaces. The dryer is also in one of the rooms which limited the time of day to do laundry. We loved the pool area!

Myra S. from St. Louis, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011
We loved how spacious our house was, beds for everyone. Property was clean and maintained. Replaced a broken microwave in one day after we reported it. It would be helpful to have a hose in front of the house to wash sand off your feet. Oven could be updated. Would be helpful to have a hand mixer. The walls of the pool made our skin itch if you rubbed against it. But overall, nice rental property within walking distance of the beach.

Wonderful Family Vacation
Dorothy F. from brockton, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in April, 2011
The house was spotless and had a very nice layout so don't let the outside fool you. The pool was big and had a railing to help you in and out which came in handy for some of our group who had knee surgery recently. We only had a problem with the pool being a little colder than we like it and I called Kevin on Sunday and he came down right away and turned up the heat for us so it was nice and warm by that everning for us older folks! The kitchen is fully stocked, plenty of towels and sheets etc. The only negative that I can think of was the washer and dryer being in one of the twin bedrooms. The guys that slept there went to bed early and we had to fit the washing in around their sleeping.....but we managed ok. This is the second time we rented from Vacation Rental Pros and were very happy both times. This house is close to everything and in a very good neighborhood. Go to Venice Ave. and have a Gelato instead of ice cream - best ever! Also, try Anita's Family Restaurant at 441 S. Tamiami Trail, Nokomis, Fl 34275 if you want home cooked meals. The grits are the best as were the mashed sweet potatoes. The Friday fish fry was just like back home in NY. The staff was wonderful...ask for Dana and tell her that the party of 11 sent you. We will be looking forward to more great times in Venice. Thanks for the use of your home, our vacation couldn't have been any better!

Great Place To Gather!
Erin D. from Allegan, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011
We spent most of our time in the pool - It was a great temperature, but sharp tiles cut us the first day. We were smarter there after. Nice space around pool deck to fit our group of 12 but the pool deck was very very dirty! Food, bandaids, and hair balls. The deck was probably hosed down, but where everything ended up happened to be where we sit around a table. The main living space was very clean. We cooked many meals and used almost all of the appliances - all work well. There is a faulty burner on the stove top. Actually, without the stove turned on, when we wiped down the stainless steel top near the back right corner, flames shot out!!! Not sure what is happening with the electical part of that stove but it needs to be checked! Fridge space was plenty for 5 families. Cupboards a plenty for all you supplies! One cupboard did have a safety issue - a screwdriver was used to hold up a shelf. Had the screwdriver fallen out, it was a cupboard above our heads and it may have caused some pretty bad bodily injury not to mention other items that would fall as well. On a side note - water quality in this area has a very bad odor! We purchased our own drinking water. Bedrooms were nice. Maybe need to install some doors between the two bedroom with single beds. Bathrooms were clean. However, I also read an evaluation of the property before we arrived and didn't understand why having bathrooms on either side of the home was a problem. Well, the problem comes from the fact that two families have their own private full baths to use. The only other full bath must be shared amongst three other families. (Hard on the old parents to get up multiple times in the middle of the night). One bed had pretzel or chip crumbs in it. That leads me to our biggest dilema with this property and how the cleaning arrangements take place. Evidently, we pay a cleaning fee but we are asked to strip the beds and start the laundry and vaccuum! So, if the beds are not stripped

We had an outstanding holiday at Villas Mansion. We had 3 families totalling 16 people and the house suited our needs perfectly. We loved the short walk to the beach and the kids got tons of use out of the pool. A few reccomendations for the homeowner: The pull-out couches need to be replaced badly, we were unable to use them because they were either broken or way to uncomfortable. The tiles above the skimmer basket needs to be repaired before someone hurts themselves. The in-pool light is not secured, we had to put it back in place several times. Thank-you for a great time and we hope to rent this home again in the future.

Dana P. from St Clair, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2011
This house was perfect for us. There were 3 adults and 7 kids ages 18-22. There was room for everyone. The house was beautiful! The kids LOVED the pool and the beach being so close. The boys had so much fun fishing at the pier and looking for shark teeth at Caspersen Beach. The private beach is a little more than 2 blocks, but within walking distance. There are several beautiful beaches short drive away. The only complaint I got was that there were no other young kids around. It is definately an older community. I was a little worried about the outdoor pool and the noise ordinance with 7 kids but there were no problems. We had so much fun and look forward to coming back.

A guest from Story City, Iowa recommends this property.

My husband and I drove to Florida and flew our daughters and families down for five days over Thanksgiving. We had a great time at the 405 Villas property. We were 15 people - 8 adults and 7 kids so we needed room for all. The common areas were spacious and allowed us to spread out as needed. We made good use of the pool and on Thanksgiving Day found it cloudy. We called Kevin, the property manager on a holiday. He answered and kindly offered to contact a pool man Friday at the latest. We spent Friday at Kennedy Space Center and returned to find the pool clearing and soon ready for the kids again. We were most pleased with the size of the property, the size of the pool and the space for bedrooms and laundry. A fabulous time was had by all. We hated to drive away.

May 2010 Stay
Shawna S. from Denham Spring, Louisiana recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2010
This house had a lot of space - there was plenty of room and the layout was very nice. The front bedroom with the twin beds stayed uncomfortably warm - we used a fan, but a window unit would have been great. Also the main A/C unit froze up midway through our stay - possibly just needed maintenance. The pool was nice - there was an issue with standing water puddling in front of the doorway into the house, but we just kept a towel on the floor inside the entryway. We really enjoyed having the private beach just a couple of blocks away - and Sharkey's was also very close (one of our favorite hangouts). We'll probably choose another rental next year (we really didn't need as much room as we had) but overall we enjoyed our stay here.

The pool was okay but very little room around it to just sit and watch the kids and talk. The walk to the beach was about 10 mins but no one told us where to get on the beach.

Our stay at The Villas location
A guest from Monroe, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2010
There were seven golfers who went to Venice Florida for a week of golf in the area. We needed a house with at least 4 bed rooms with at least seven beds and three bathrooms. The location in Venice was very nice. We were close to most everything we wanted to do. The house was clean and was in fairly good condition. There were some maintenance problems that should have been taken care of before we arrived. The light in the master bed room was burned out and the main light in the kitchen. The shower handle in the master bedrooms' bathroom did not work properly and we could not get any hot water. We called the property supervisor and he did respond quickly in replacing the lights and contacting a plumber. We cooked several meals while staying at the house and found all of the kitchen equipment and furnishings to be satisfactory.

The house size and layout was fine, but I was disappointed with the condition. Some examples are: verical blind slats missing, stripped window blinds, light bulbs out, windows which couldn't be opened because the mechanics were broken, no dishpan or dish drainer, one shower didn't always work properly, as well as other disappointments. Each on its own is no big thing, but when combined were very frustrating. I didn't feel much attention was paid to the house except to clean it for the next tenant.

We enjoyd our stay and found the house to be very well equipped. We did notice many minor maintenance items in need of repair if you are interested in our listing of them we would be happy to provide them. It would have been nce to have the pool warmer- as we had to go swimming elswhere for 3 days- Kevin did come to raise the heat ,but still not as warm as he raised it nor another we found- thank you

Stayed for 4 days in December, 2009
We were delighted with the property. We gathered for a family reunion, 90th B-day party, Chritmas celebration. The open floor plan permitted everyone to gather together or break into smaller groups. The kitchen was well equipped and designed so that we had no trouble preparing meals for our large family. The walk-ability of the island and the lovely neighborhood made us all want to return again soon. Thank you for helping us make this a holiday we will always remember! One small problem. The fold out sofa in the bedroom/TV room with the sliding door out to the pool is broken and should be replaced.

Awesome!
Trena J. from Whiteland, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2009
Would definitely recommend this house. Plenty of room for a couple of families and easy access to parks, beaches and shopping. Only minor issue was a leak under the sink the property manager was notified in the morning and leak was fixed by that afternoon. Couldn't ask for anything more. Otherwise from the time we made the reservation until we left the property everything went flawlessly. Thank you for a great experience!

Very positive experience
Patricia S. from Midland, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2009
We had a very nice stay at 405 Villas Drive. My brother described it as "Old Florida," and that is a good description. We had many relatives coming to Venice for a 90th birthday celebration. This house solved the dilemma of requiring multiple hotel rooms and gave us a large space for enjoying relatives we rarely see. The pool was lovely and all the bedrooms were comfortable. We were especially delighted to find the wireless internet access which had been installed just a few days prior to our arrival. We did have to contact the property manager, as there were no instructions posted; but he cheerfully helped us out. There were miscellaneous light bulbs that did not work, and the pot for the coffeemaker was missing. We found a second coffeemaker in the cupboard and used that, though the pot was cracked. We appreciated using a code for the front door rather than using a key. Thank you for an enjoyable stay. We wish we could have stayed longer and will consider again. Making all the arrangements and payments via internet worked great.

Great House, Unfriendly Neighborhood
A guest from Eldersburg, MD does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009
The house itself was very nice. There was plenty of room, the pool was great and it was a short walk to the beach. However, our only complaint was the neighborhood. Apparently the neighbors are not happy that this house is a rental property. The first 2 days we were there we received anonymous letters placed inside of our newspaper that outlined what the neighbors expected of us. My favorite was the request that the kids play in the pool no longer than 1/2 hour at a time during the day! We chose to ignore the unreasonable requests and go about our business of having a fun family vacation. Within a few days the police arrived at our doorstep one night at 7:00 pm because a neighbor complained that the kids were being too loud in the pool. Truly they were just playing and having fun. We rented this house knowing that there were quiet hours in the neighborhood which we were entirely prepared to abide by. But the police told us this meant after 10:00pm so why the police were called at 7:00 on a beautiful summer night when the kids were just enjoying the pool I have no idea. All in all we had a great time but being harassed by neighbors was not something we were counting on and we will not come back to this particular house for that reason.

The house was exactly what we expected. We were unclear about departure instructions because the email we received was a little different from instructions left at the house. The property manager, Dennis, was very helpful in answering our questions about the house. He also was available to give us local knowledge of things to do. We had a great vacation.

Our family was very happy with the Villas Island Mansion property. This was our 2nd year staying at one of the Vacation Rental Pros property and we will most likely rent again next year. Your homes are always clean and have everything that our family requires. We had a problem with one of the showers in the main bathroom and your contact person Dennis we quick to respond and had a Plumper there the next day to fix it. Dennis also recommended a couple of places to eat, Pops and Rib City. We tried both places, they were great.. Thanks for everything. See you next year.

A guest from Galloway, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2009
Departure time was 10 am which meant we would need to wake up very early in order to get the bed sheets washed. We didnt sleep at all the last night but were up washing the sheets. the dryer didnt want to dry the sheets (maybe the vent was clogged) and we could only put a little in at a time. I recommend that you guys bring in extra sheets each week so guests won't have to stress over washing them. Also, the dishwasher didnt work, the maintenance man came and said he would replace it, but he never showed up. Otherwise we enjoyed our vacation there. Thank you:)

Stayed for 7 days in February, 2009
My family really enjoyed our stay in Venice Beach, the heated outdoor pool was just great for the kids and the proximity to the beach super. Only issue is we received three seperate notices (same note each time from the neighbors)one who scotch taped the notice to our front door, informing us we were renters and the house had a poor reputation among certain residents for noise, the note was unnecessary and unkind, really think Steve needs to address with the neighbors.Other then that nice time had by all.

Great Family Vacation
A guest from Roeville, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008
From my parents to the youngest child, the house was great! The location was convenient and the neighborhood was quiet. Unfortunatley, Venice Beach was closed for swimming because of bacteria levels but Nokomas Beach, which was less than a 10 minute drive away, was beautiful and not crowded. Over all, everyone loved it.

405 Villas "Mansion"
A guest from Osterville, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 42 days in February, 2008
Stayed for 6 weeks at 405 Villas Drive. Dated but clean accommodations. great location for beach, kayaking & Venice center. Easy bike ride to restauants and shops. Beautiful beaches.Quiet neighborhood. Houses are close together but the fence provided privacy. Abundant birds. Loved the pool although it needed tile repairs. Pool was always heated to over 80 degrees. Not a mansion as advertised. Just a large house with four bedrooms plus two single beds in the laundry room. Need to watch out for the uneven flooring which is a bit hazardous as well as slippery tile floors inside house near pool. Dennis, the property manager, promptly repaired a two page list of things we found broken or missing on arrival. Overall we had a nice stay.
