What a beautiful home! The wonderful pool and patio are just steps from the great room. It was so convenient having a fully equipped kitchen, which gave us choices of eating in or out. The quiet neighborhood added to our relaxing stay.
This was an absolutely perfect getaway--in absolutely every respect. The home is completely accommodating; thoughtfully welcoming, and with such attentiveness to the countless nuances of the household which could so easily be overlooked when traveling--there was not a single comfort or necessity we were without during our stay. Birgit and Uwe have provided a foothold to another world. The location is ideal--off the thoroughfare and close to both the wild and the civilized; a bike ride and a private ferry across the bay to an unspoiled idyllic gulf beach, and a minute by car to every domestic item and service South Venice Beach has to offer--and convenient to so many options to explore: a multitude of parks and natural areas and open spaces within minutes, as well as dining, nightlife, and shopping experiences close by in every direction. And we were so fortunate to have truly marvelous Florida weather during the week: moderate temperatures, minimal humidity, a mild cool breeze and frequent modest clouds, and perfectly clear skies--the visibility was astounding. And the pool! Wunderbar! Our time at the Villa Happy Gator is an experience that will stay with us.
Fantastic villa and location. Everything we expected and more. The villa is superb very new and lovely. Four huge smiles from us and our kids as we arrived!!! Says it all. Would love to go back.
This property is convenient to everything Venice has to offer. We often spent early mornings walking nearby beaches or riding bikes along the beautiful trails in Shamrock Park. Later we would return to relax around the lanai, swim in the pool, and grill dinner. We had a five star experience.
This house is a gem – from the outside and even more from the inside. We felt very comfortable in this vacation home. The house is tastefully furnished and decorated – light and welcoming – and the large pool area is fantastic. The contact with the owner and the house management was very positive. We will be back! Résumé: highly recommended
