Venice Island Harbor Paradise Home, Sleep 14, Private Heated Pool, Wifi, Hdtv

A big house for a big group, this gorgeous Venice island paradise beach retreat is an ideal base for your next family gathering or special celebration. Up to fourteen guests will sleep comfortably in 4 bedrooms and spend days in the private heated pool or at the nearby beach. Taste the Venice island life at 301 Harbor Drive South.

Located on the island of Venice and only 3 blocks to the town center, the home boasts many features that increase your sense of overall privacy and security. Lush landscaping makes a gorgeous backdrop and disguises the fenced backyard. Parents of small children can teach their kids to swim, yet relax knowing that the pool is properly fenced. Live life coastal-style outdoors, in the screened lanai under palm trees-a-plenty. An outside dining table and ample sun beds keep the party outside.

Indoors, a huge selection of new living room furniture suits a big group. Two large microsuede sofas and a further two over-sized arm chairs are comfy places to gather for a movie or ball game. An overhead ceiling fan keeps things cool.

Wrought iron tables and tiled floors underfoot leave things open and breezy, just as a vacation house should be. Control the sunlight from the large window with vertical blinds.

While your family or group entertains diverse interests, others can play or chat in the nearby family room. Styled in cafe chic, a small table and higher bar table sit atop a brick floor. Bring favorite board games or a pack of cards and play all night.

When bed time rolls around, the master bedroom accommodates a family in this separate suite. Much like a large hotel room, parents with young children can comfortably fit in the room?s two queen beds and queen-sized sofa bed.

The home?s second guest bedroom will keep the grandparents or another couple happy. Spoiled with massive king bed and TV, the room?s occupants will love its cheery ambiance - floral prints and palm tree motifs dot the comforter, accents and wicker furniture. A dresser is included for easy organization.

Bedrooms three and four boast bright accommodation with two twin beds and a queen, respectively. Both have new and ample storage furniture, large windows and ceiling fans. Your guests? comfort is absolutely assured.

When searching for local entertainment, it?s only 3 blocks to both the beach and charming downtown Venice. Head to the beach each night for a stunning sunset, followed by a fresh seafood dinner at popular Sharkey?s restaurant, then ice cream downtown.

Wireless Internet makes this home as convenient as it is lovely. Two full bathrooms are clean and bright, with high-quality finishings. One bathroom is handicapped accessible while the other has a bathtub, an ideal option for parents with small children and a flotilla of rubber ducks.

Location location location
Sally A. from Carmel, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014
Had a great time. The little ones enjoyed traveling to the beach and the splash park via a rented little red wagon. The location is ideal. The neighborhood is quiet. Kevin and VRP people are helpful. The largest bedroom doesn't stay as cool as the rest of the house. Nice pool area. Great house for partying or just relaxing.

The House was Fine but the Pool was Dissapointing
Elizabeth T. from Bloomingdale, IL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
There were 11 of us, 6 adults and 5 children ranging in age from 2 - 12 years of age. The house held all 11 of us comfortably but the house could use some updating. One of the bedrooms did not have a closet. The pool was so small that when the 5 kids were in it the adults would not fit comfortably. We ended up going to the Ramada Inn on Bypass 41 to use their pool so we all could get in the water at the same time and lay out on the deck. The pool deck at the house had only 2 plastic lounge chairs and a patio table that only sat 4. We found some folding chairs in one of the closets so it was difficult if not impossible to relax out on the deck. We called the property manager because the pool deck was constantly under water. He came promptly with a squeegee that he left for us to use daily. There wasn't one pool toy for the kids to play with so we had to buy some and leave them. Hope they are still there for the next people. We didn't realize until the last day that we could have adjusted the pool heat, there were no instructions so the water was a bit cool the whole week. We also had to buy the baskets so we could look for sharks teeth, also left behind. We have been going to Venice for over 30 years and love the town. The house was in a good location to the town and the beach. We have our favorite restaurants and found a few new ones. We had a great time at the house plenty of room for all of us but we were very disappointed with the pool. The pool and the deck could never hold 14 people comfortably.

Family Vacation Spot
A guest from Nicholasville, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
Had a wonderful week with our whole family - 8 adults and 5 children - under one roof! The layout allowed for everyone to sleep comfortably and have a get-away place, yet allowed for plenty of family time space! The grandkids loved the pool and the short trips to the beach! Beautiful beaches , neat shops , and good restaurants were within walking distance. A walk to the gelato shop became a daily routine! Other restaurants, shopping and parks were within an easy drive. All in all, a great experience!

Very Convenient
Frank B. from Stroudsburg, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 27 days in February, 2014
We stayed at 301Harbor Drive South for the month of February. It was very convenient to the beach and Venice Ave shopping. Thought there might be a problem with being on the main road, but there wasn't any noise from cars or neighbors.Kevin is the property manager. Whenever we had to contact him for ANYTHING he was always available and very helpful.The reason for the 4stars on the furniture is that two of the recliners don't recline? And the overall condition of the couches are fair. Otherwise, all is well.

Harbor Drive, Venice Florida
A guest from Kalamazoo, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013
We have enjoyed staying at this home once before and came back again. We enjoy the location and the size of this rental as we have 11 to 13 people on vacation. This time though the cleanliness of the carpets, the sheets on one bed were dirty and maintenance of the grounds seemed poor. Two of the TV's did not work well (one not at all). The heater for the pool ran very loudly (which we called and they said it was normal). The pool seemed cold. For the price of this rental we expected a little more.

Not very satisfied
Elisabeth D. from Cortlandt Manor, NY does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
The house should have more amenities for the amount of people using the property. It was not set up properly to house everyone comfortably. Outside shower would have been a great idea. A second fridge for drinks or a larger one in the kitchen. The main bathroom was not draining properly and had to use draino. This must have been a previous issue as it was under bathroom sink. Properties in the past had always had beach chairs and other conveniences. This house did not have any.

Thank you, Kevin. for checking the pool as it was cold when we arrived & needed filter maintenance. It was perfect after that & much enjoyed!! The previous renters had a dog & one chair & sofa in the sunroom were covered with dog hair. That sofa in the sunroom needs serious cleaning. All the area rugs need cleaning or replacement. We did have perfect weather for the month & really had a great time biking, swimming & beaching. We all valued Kevin's prompt attention & kindness!! The pool was the highlight of this vacation!

When you wanted to get away from the crowd,there was ample places to retreat. The pool was great! The kids loved searching for sharks teeth and came back with many! The beach was nice.

Enjoyed Venice
A guest from New Lebanon, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
The property could have definitely been a little cleaner. There were also a few broken items when we arrived, TV, mixer, deck chair. The TV was replaced on Monday when Mr. Connelly returned to work. I had called on Saturday regarding the TV and spoke with the weekend coverage person about the TV but he was no help. Mr Connelly also quickly got us a new mixer. The property overall was nice and met our expectations. However, I would suggest having more recycling bins, lids for all the pans and a few more storage bowls.

Not So Pleasant in Harbor Paradise! A/C issues and minor repairs
A guest from Tampa, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
Property was in great location and very spaceous, BUT the largest room which was described as seperate suite and slept 5 of our party, was a converted garage and had highly inadequite cooling. Temp was HOT, HOT, HOT and the fans just moved around warm stagnant air. The floors needed to be cleaned better as feet got dirty when barefoor inside-yuk! Pool was nice though many screens need to be replace as our pet could escape - luckily yard was fenced. Main llving room furniture was worn and stained. The door shelf in fridge was broken, so had to keep some things in a cooler with ice- for an added inconvience. Nice place but for July's high season price with all addtional taxes and fees should have been better!

Our family really enjoyed our visit. The location is great. Close to the beach, and you can walk to shops and restaurants. The property was clean and laid out well for a group or large family. The Venice area is beautiful! We will definitely be back. The drains around the pool were not working well when we were there. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Great time in Venice!
Kricket J. from Cocoa, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012
The location is great, the house is large enough for a big group and well - furnished... lots of towels (the only thing was there was only 1 roll of toilet paper and paper towels which left us running out the second day to restock those necessities - especially for a large group) but otherwise, we enjoyed the home, the location, and had a great time!

Spring Break Vacation in April, 2012
Rima R. from Painesville, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012
We were very happy with the size of the home and the amenities. There does need to be a spring cleaning of sorts - e.g. clean area rugs, scrub floors, scrub pool, etc. Also a couple of screens were ripped a bit. These were all minor things that weren't worth reporting but if they were thoroughly done I would have given five stars for everything. The beach is about 6 blocks away but a nice walk in the spring weather. Also, the town was just a few blocks away and we really enjoyed window shopping there. We would definitely go again. Thank you!

Great time in Venice!
A guest from Durham, New Hampshire recommends this property.
Stayed for 29 days in February, 2012
This location is wonderful for walking/biking to downtown Venice. the supermarket, library & Venice Beach. The pool was perfect. The pool furniture needs attention. I do feel that some of the furniture is uncomfortable (especially in the sunroom) & the dining table really only seats 6 people. What if you did have 14 people for dinner?? While we were there the AC stopped working, the bathtub drain was plugged & the dryer broke. All these problems were quickly addressed by Kevin!! He is the best!! A wonderful vacation!

Very comfortable Venice Home
Annette D. from Woodhaven, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012
We stayed in this house in January with our two dogs and both sets of our parents (four senior citizens). The home was spacious, open, airy, bright, and very accessible for everyone - one of the bathrooms even had grab bars and a bench in the walkin shower, which was perfect for my mother who has problems with her legs and her balance. The furniture was very comfortable and perfect for relaxing after an afternoon at the beach or walking around the shopping district, just three blocks away (the beach was six blocks away, lots of places to drive and park for easy beach access). There were some maintenance / upkeep issues that keep me from scoring all five stars (ie torn screens, a stain on one rug, and broken blinds), but these weren't big deals so we didn't bother calling the propery manager to report them. For people traveling with dogs, this house has a fully fenced in back yard that is accessible through several doors, makes it very easy to let your dogs in and out, and there are so many large windows that you can essily keep an eye on your pets while they run around the yard. The house even provides a baby/security fence that can go around the pool if you want to keep the large glass lanai doors open and don't want to worry about your dogs potentially falling in thr pool. Overall, very nice home that met our vacation needs (if it were beach front, it would have been absolutely perfect, but we knew it wasn't located on the beach when we booked it). We would stay here again.

Christmas Vacation 2011 - 301 Harbor, Venice
Terry S. from Grimsby, Ontario recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in December, 2011
This was our third time renting from Vacation Rental Pros and the best yet. The fully fenced back yard was a safe place for our dogs to enjoy, the pool was clean and well maintained. A little attention to the gardens would help to make the property more enjoyable. The house itself was well stocked with linens, kitchen tools, TVs and board games. Overall very comfortable, except for the couch in the family room. We had one problem with a backed-up drain in the kitchen, but the property manager, Keven Connelly arranged for a plumber and the matter was resolved to our complete satisfaction. Highly recommend Vacation Rental Pros to all my friends and family. See you again next year.

Everything was perfect. Just walk in the door and your home! Great location, walk to town, fenced yard for dogs, decorating very nice, and management team A+. Property manager (Kevin) extremely helpful and all people we talked to were great to work with. We had been to Venice many times but never stayed more than a couple days at a time. Would and have recommended VR pros! Oh!! Don't forget the caged heated pool! Home on Harbor Blvd is just a very short distance to Venice beaches and Sharky's pier and restaurant or the Jetty. Perfect location for many things to do. Wish we had known about VR Pros years ago. Wonderful value. Many good plaaces to eat close by. This was a wonderful home away from home. Don't miss Casperson beach (Shark tooth beach),hours of fun looking for shark teeth. There was one bedroom that did not cool well so we put our daughter who is always cold there and she was in hog heaven! You will not be disappointed!!!!!

Special shout out to the screened lanai that protected us from the swarming Love Bugs this weekend!Very impressed with follow up from VR Pro's as well ..... e-mails, calls, etc.Thanks - we had a lovely time and if we plan to come back to Venice, we would definitely check out 301 Harbor Dr S again as well as VR Pros!

If only pictures could tell the whole story. This place is not within walking distance from the beach. It was built in the 60's or 70's and still shows it. There is not a whole lot that has been remodeled and it is in desperate need of an upgrade. The lawn and grounds are not kept up at all and the shades in the bedrooms are terrible. The furniture looks like it came out of Goodwill. The fixtures in the bathrooms are pink , and original. The price tag is way to high for what you get here folks. Don't waste your time unless you are taking trying to find a cheap place that will sleep 12-14 and you split the cost. I invited my parents and in-laws to join us, Thank God they did not come. Wew! I got lucky there. If I hadn't prepaid I would have never stayed there and put my wife through it. Oh did I mention the spots all over the sheets. Ick! I could go on and on.

Stacey C. from Orangeville, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2010
The house was dirty - we left it cleaner then we found it. Pool cover was thrown outside lanai in a heap so the pool was too cold to swim in all week. Bed in single queen is extremely uncomfortable. No plastic glassware, broken glass in cupboard, toaster button broken and just placed on . Charcoal bbq takes forever when feeding a large crowd, there should be a gas bbq. The process of booking was well organized but the cleanliness of the house was a disappointment (including mold on the toilet paper holder and in toilet, all floors had to be swept, bathroom floors needed washing)- how do we know the bedding is clean if you have the previous people doing the laundry. The $150 cleaning charge should cover the cleaning and laundry. I am a hotel manager so I appreciate constructive criticism so I can better serve my guests, please accept this as such. Liked the location and would probably reccommend. We have paid less for a better, more upgraded home in the past in Golden Beach with beach access so this may have been part of our disappointment.

301 Harbor, Venice Island, for Jan. 2010 vacation
Janet M. from Crystal Beach, ON recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in January, 2010
We had a great month at the 301 Harbor property. The house was wonderful for the family & friends who stopped by or stayed with us. Lots of room and privacy as well as gathering places to be together. The location was central and easy to walk everywhere on the island. The property itself is dated and needs some TLC. It is clearly a rental and not someone's home. Basics are all there, but kitchen could use some upgraded appointments. Furniture was well worn from use but quite comfortable. We do want to compliment Kevin Connolly the Property Manager. Kevin was friendly,concerned and was very prompt to address our questions and needs for repairs. He made the inconveniences minor with his attention. For those of you with dogs, the yard is fenced on 2 sides, but not enclosed as we thought. Luckily Sofie learned her boundaries very quickly. We know that we left the home cleaner than we found it. Basic cleaning was done and bedding and linens were washed, but cleaning between customers was not extensive (although the cleaners were leaving as we arrived and she mentioned that she spent most of her time cleaning the fridge left in terrible condition), so I guess the priorities were correct, but other areas remained not freshly cleaned. Depending on your needs and/or wants,we would recommend this home for the purposes stated above; large and roomy, private yet conducive to gatherings, location. It does need a lot of upgrades in the windows, plumbing, electrical, furniture & kitchen amenities etc.

A guest from Chalfont, PA recommends this property.

For the most part, the house was clean and well equipped. All window coverings need cleaning and repair. Lanai screening needs repair. Most disappointing was that the pool heater did not work and therefore we could not use the pool, which was a main reason for renting this house. Also, there was no front porch light, which made punching in the code to unlock the door a challenge each night. I would recommend this property only if these issues were addressed.

The garage turned bedroom did not have sufficiant A/C. All exterior doors need replacing. Sliding glass door to the pool did not secure (anyone could open at any time) and was extremely difficult to close. I even went out and bought WD-40 to spray in the track and it did not help. The TV in the main room must have been top in it's class in 1985. I stayed in the "Rialto" two years ago and expected somewhat of close to the same quality. Was disappointed.

Family vacation
A guest from Leawood, KS recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2009
The home was an easy walk to Venice stores and restaurants and a five minute car ride to two beautiful beaches (with 3 children). Two added ramps made the home wheelchair accessible for great-grandmother. Lots of space for four adults and three young children. Inside pool provided a fun activity for everyone. Kitchen adequate for cooking lots of meals with small helpers. Property manager and staff very helpful and responsive - renting crib/highchair, building ramps, etc. Nice people to rent from....

Michael G. P. from Menomonee Falls, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2009
We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely come back. Only two small drawbacks - we could here rodents running up in the ceiling at night and a couple of the screen sections in the lanai were ripped out around the perimeter allowing leaves to blow into the pool. Other than that, the house was terrific, the pool was great and we had an excellent time.

A Great Short Stopover
Dave D. from Carlisle, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in November, 2008
We had a family reunion in Northport and this was a great place for all our children and their spouses to converge for almost a week. There was a continual problem w/ the WI-FI which was inconvenient. Also, it was distressing at the end of the week to find that the previous renters had an animal and the mat on the bed had not been changed. The contact person was very responsive and pleasant.

Overall, our vacation was good.
Sharon A. G. from Charleston, SC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2008
The house was nice but I wouldn't rent that particular house again. #1, the converted master bedroom (was a garage originally) was extremely hot. When the rest of the house remained cool. The door had to be left open at night to sleep and even then, no covers were used. Suggest additional air-conditioner until be installed. #2, the plumbing in the house backed up and made a mess on the floor in both the connecting bathrooms. The sink in the bathroom that guests use was extremely slow. I do not believe this problem was ever fixed. My husband had to stay at the house until a plumber came as we had personal items that we did not want to be left in the house unattended while the plumber was there. #3, as for cleanliness, it is apparent that the cleaners you hire are just providing a "quick" skimming. Also, the screened area has "green" fungus all around you and a little bit of pressure washing would go along way. #4, The blinds are a mess in both areas (window in living room missing some as well as at the back of the house.) #5, The back sliding glass door has a crack on the right hand side and will not shut - the locking mechanism is the pits and a proper lock should be installed for security. #6, never could find the switch that operated the lantern light that is in the screened in area. The Property Manager was very expedient whenever I contacted them with the issues (no remote for TV in master bedroom and the plumbing issue and the pool cleanliness). I would also recommend a TV be placed in the other two bedrooms. The one in the outer room could be moved into the master bedroom as it was really not needed as you can see the big screen TV from there.

From swimming in the pool to the kids and dogs chasing the anoles, we had a wonderful time. My father did come down with shingles, however even the medical facilities were only a couple blocks away. We took daily walks down to the shops and even listened to a weekend concert in the park. Thank you sooo much!!!

Loved the pool and location. Very comfortable property. Venice is a pleasant community. Steve and his associates are easy to work with. The property could had several minor maintenance issues. Such as a very hard to open sliding door to deck, light swithces that didn't seem to work, dining tables rocked, low water pressure at garden hose, etc.Pool and lawn maintenace contractors entered unannounced and at inconvenient times.

Home away from home.
A guest from Swartz Creek, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2008
My family and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Venice Harbor house. The house is quite spacious and the furniture was very comfortable. We thoughly enjoyed the pool and lanai area. The proximity to both the beach and old town shopping area was great. My only complaint would be that the home needs more attention paid to cleaning details i.e. (floors were dirty and tacky, vents for A.C. were heavy with dust build-up) but was otherwise acceptable. Thanks for a wonderful place to create a memorable vacation.

Venice Harbor Paradise Home
A guest from St. Louis, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 70 days in January, 2008
We Love Venice. Venise Harbor Paradise is in a great location. Propert Manager Dennis and his wife Judy are great. The hanging blinds need to be replaced. Dennis did have the refrigerator and BBQ replaced while we stayed at the house. It would be nice to have a TV in the bedroom with the single King-size bed, but not a major issue. We are renting the same home for a week longer during 2009.

A Relaxing Vacation
Debra C. from Highland Springs, Virginia recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this house. It was very comfortable and I especially loved the pool. We were close to several nice beaches, as well as stores for shopping. It was a quite and very picturesque area. The only real problem we encountered was the large amounts of seaweed that was washed up on the beaches because of the storms that rolled through just before we made our trip. We still managed to enjoy our time in the warm and calm Gulf waters. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the house to friends looking for a relaxing vacation in Florida.

The house was close to town which made it easy to walk to with our 4 children. Lots of space in the house. Large bedrooms. A bit dark and dated inside, but otherwise was just what we were looking for since we were trying to find a house close to my parents house in Venice. We would have enjoyed a house on the beach, but could not find anything in Venice. So this was the next best thing. The kids loved walking into town to play in the fountain and get ice cream. The beach was just a short drive away.
