Baycrest I Rental, private heated pool, lanai, Tile, HDTV, Wifi
Description from the manager
Ideal for a large family gathering or reunion, this charming beach house for ten can be easily rented in conjunction with its next-door-neighbor-but-one, Baycrest II, and/or the elegant Laguna Mansion one block away. Could these homes be your perfect beach wedding solution? <br/><br/>With a brand new heated pool and enviable location (1 block to Roberts Bay, 3 blocks to downtown Venice and only 5 blocks to Venice Beach), there's plenty to write home about - if you can be bothered. Quite likely, you'll be too busy hunting sharks' teeth, spotting dolphins and window shopping in Old Venice. The charms of this locale are many, and reward repeat visits. <br/><br/>Old Venice is a distinct town with real character and stands out from all others along the coast. Italian-style architecture dates to the early 1920s and street names pay homage to the town's influences: stroll down Via Venezia, San Marco and Firenze, for example.<br/><br/>Wander along Main Street and browse to your heart's content in shops, restaurants and little boutiques. Enjoy the best in al fresco dining at charming sidewalk cafes. Along the way, admire huge oaks are draped in Spanish moss. This town is absolutely charming. <br/><br/>As is this Baycrest home. A brand new heated pool and surrounding patio are enclosed in a gorgeous screened lanai. Treat yourself to Terrazzo tile floors and many further indulgences. Tropical accents dot the walls throughout the house. Wireless and cable high-speed Internet are added conveniences. <br/><br/>New furniture in the living room is of particularly high quality. Large coffee and side tables are great for holding snacks or cooling drinks, and everyone will fight over the leather recliner chairs and matching foot stools. They're sublime. <br/><br/>When you choose to dine at home, the dining room is a further option (in addition to outside patio table and barbecue). Opening directly to the kitchen, it's an ideal spot in which to plan your day together, catch up on email or enjoy a bite of toast. <br/><br/>The home's three bedrooms include a king bed in the master suite, with two twins and two queens in the guest rooms. Enjoy brand new furniture throughout. Two further guests will sleep comfortably in the sunroom on an oversized sleeper sofa. All of the bedrooms are spacious and have large closets. Of the two bathrooms, one has a bath/shower combo and the other a handsome tiled shower stall. <br/><br/>Look out for 'snow birds' as you walk to the beach. Parrots visit Venice and surrounds during the winter, and are often found nesting in palm trees along the shore. <br/><br/>Our Baycrest house is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Venice Island near Roberts Bay. Our house is on a small side street at 433 Baycrest Drive and is just 5 blocks to the Venice Beach and 3 blocks to downtown Venice. We just added a beautiful pool and enclosed patio and lanai.<br/><br/>Location, Location, Location! The Baycrest House is only a 5 block walk to the Venice Beach and a few minutes more to the Crow's Nest seafood restaurant where you can enjoy live music at night and watch the sunset. If you have a dog, it is a nice walk or short car ride to Venice's famous dog beach - Brohard Paw Park. Also, the beach home is about 3 blocks to Venice Avenue and downtown Venice Florida. Here you will find shops, boutiques, cafes and even tennis courts and recreation area.
Additional amenities include: biking, boating, beach, fishing, washer / dryer....Read more
"Another great stay in a Vacation Rental Pros property"

This home was perfect for our party of 4 adults and 2 small children aged 6 and 2. The home was large enough for all of us to not feel crowded, and our 2 grandaughters just loved the enclosed porch where they spent many happy hours playing while still very visible to us adults in the house. Although the home could use some updating it is more then adequate for a comfortable memory making vacation, and the pool is awesome! Thank you again for another great memory maker!

We had a great week at this property. Lots of room for family of 5 and a great location within walking distance of beach and Venice street shopping. This was our second visit to this home and we will likely be back again

We enjoyed our stay. It was nice being so close to town where we could ride bikes or walk if wanted to. The house had everything we needed and enjoyed the pool. It would be nice to have a flatscreen T.V. We like to watch the games while there. The manager and contacts were right there if needed. We will be back next year. Thanks

This house was perfect for our family. We have two boys, 5 and 6. They loved being in the pool. And I loved the fact that there was no carpet for them to soak. The location was ideal for us. We where able to walk or bike to the beach everyday. And the tennis courts where a short walk. We had a great time and we will return in the future.

We stayed at one of your other rentals in Venice a couple of years ago and I believe we liked that house a bit better. But, we had no problems with this one and we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. Thanks

We really enjoyed being so close to the beach and the kids loved the pool. I was just disappointed that there were some detail things that needed to be addressed. The paint in the main bathroom was peeling, and the faucet handles in the tub had quite a bit of corrosion on them. The two queen room needed bed slats put under one of the beds because it kept falling through the bedframe. Overall, we had a good time, but the details are what make a stay exceptional instead of just nice.

Thanks for everything.

The house is in a wonderful location. We took daily walks passed the bay to the beach and it was beautiful. We had five adults and one toddler and had ample of space. The bathrooms are small, but they work just fine. There wasn't a dishwasher which became tedious by the end of the week, but all in all it was a fabulous week! We are already planning our vacation for next year in Venice!

We enjoyed our stay alot. Kevin, the property manager was very helpful with any questions we had. The tile floor made it great for cleanups of any kind. Everything was in good working order and we can't wait to come stay again.

It was a wonderful summer and would go back in a heart beat. Everything was clean and ready to move in. The kitchen needs another medium frying pan and pot. It would have been great if the yard had been fenced for the dogs, and the walk to the beach is a good 10min walk. We made do and still had a great summer. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

It was wonderful hanging out at the pool everyday!! The kids had the best time ever. I would definatly do this again. I will be looking for a place a little closer to the beach next time. I could walk but it was a little far for children. The pool made up for that

We had a great visit and would love to visit again. September was a great time to visit, no one was there. The house could use some updating, dishwasher, central air to the 3rd bedroom and 2nd bath. Overall the property is great.

My family enjoyed our vacation at 833 Baycrest so much! The house was not only beautiful it was also stocked with everything you will need for a no worry vacation. The Venice beach area where the house is located has a relaxing old world charm with many restaurants, fun beaches, and shopping! I will recommend this company to everyone and my family will definitely be back again.

This home was clean, upgraded and perfect for our family. We have referred you to many others and we also have the Rialto Mansion booked for our family of 15 members this June '08. The homes are in perfect locations and are immaculate inside and out. We plan to always rent thru you!

My experience in renting from Steve Milo has been great. This will be my third time renting from him. My husband and I have fallen in love with Venice. The area is just beautiful. We like it so much, that we are renting a house again for our vacation. Steve has been very helpful in providing us with a home that suits our needs. I would highly recommend him to help you with your vacation. The property manager is wonderful person too!

Our family of five found this property to meet our needs very well. The furnishings were very nice, the pool was a big hit, and the rooms sunny and spacious. This was a quiet, enjoyable residential district, not far from downtown and all its attractions. Internet worked well; for the first time we had taken our laptop on vacation, and we used it a lot. There were some small negatives: some light bulbs were burned out (some in kitchen ceiling fixtures we couldn't reach), and the entertainment center is unnecessarily complicated to use. In fact, the DVD player just wouldn't work after a few days. The biggest disappointment was that being able to walk along Roberts Bay can't be done. Anywhere near this location, the bay is bordered by private homes (no access), and the road is beyond viewing distance to the bay. Oh, yes, for this money, I'd expect a place to have a dishwasher! We needed heat some nights, and there was a strong odor of fuel oil. Still, the positives far outweigh the negatives, and we'd like to go back.
