“Old Florida charm and first class customer service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2008

We recently stayed one night at Venice Beach Villas on our way to a family vacation in South Florida. We chose them because of the reviews we'd read here, and we were not disappointed. The Villa was neat, clean and comfortable and the owners were friendly and helpful. Venice itself and the Beach Villas were full of charm and a slice of "old Florida".
Though we would have been happy with our experience anyway, it was the customer service we received later that evening that made the greatest impression.
Our parents' room wasn't cooling properly but we didn't notice until we'd returned after the office had closed. We called the after-hours number and the owners came quickly, upgrading them to a bigger villa, helping them move and apologizing for the inconvenience.
Our daughter was also having a problem accessing wireless internet for a program on her laptop. Her deadline for a college algebra test was approaching. Though the problem was with her computer, as the wireless connection was good, the owner came to our villa and stayed a couple of hours trying to fix it for her. When he realized it wouldn't work, he took us to the Menendez location where he was willing to download her program onto his computer so she wouldn't miss the test.
This kind of service, though seldom seen today, never goes out of style and made our quick visit to 'Old Florida' a memorable experience and a great beginning to a family vacation. We hope to return!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2008

The location of this property is wonderful. The town and beach are both within walking distance. We got a lot of use out of the bikes and beach equipment provided free of charge by the hotel. The grills were in good shape and very convenient. This was a great benefit. The greatest problem we encountered was the lack of hot water in the shower. The sinks had hot water but the shower was ice cold. Unfortunately, we weren't often at the hotel the same time as the management so we simply put up with the inconvenience. A late arriving group also chose to party on the patio outside our room until midnight the second night of our stay despite the "quiet hours" which were supposed to start at 9:00pm. Overall, a good convenient place to stay. For families, it's idea!

  • Liked — Location and availability of bikes, beach equipment & grills
  • Disliked — No hot water in the shower.
