Relax in our Pet Friendly, Lake Front home with Wonderful Water Views in South Venice, Florida! Take the Ferry to a Private Beach to look for sharks teeth!

Enjoy the experience of living on a Floridian lake on your tropical vacation. There is plenty of room to park your RV or boat on the driveway extending the full length beside the garage (garage parking is not available). Enjoy the benefits of use of the Community Ferry to the Private Beach where you can find lots of shark's teeth. There also is a fishing pier and area to launch a kayak.

A bight and open split floor plan with 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms sits right on Dolphin Lake. Enjoy water views from almost every room in the house. Bring fido as we allow dogs for a small fee.

The moment you enter this home your eyes will be drawn through the sliding glass doors to the peaceful tranquil view of the lake. Vaulted ceilings in the living and dining room makes this vacation home feel open and very spacious. There is a formal dining area for 6, a dinette off the kitchen overlooking the lake for 4, plus there is additional seating in the enclosed lanai. Relax in the lanai with a glass of wine and enjoy the lake views.....hear the birds! Just outside the enclosed lanai is an outdoor open patio with additional seating. The lanai has plenty of space for lounging and dining so you can enjoy the lake activity rain or shine.

There is an equipped kitchen with stove/oven combo, a microwave, dishwasher, tray ceilings and tile floors with lots of dining options right off the kitchen. Whip up a home-cooked meal anytime you please.

The master queen bedroom overlooks the lake and features a sizable walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with ceramic tile & walk-in shower. Wake up to the sounds of birds singing! The second queen bedroom is adjoined to a full bath as well with a walk-in tub. There is a bonus room with a sofa where you can relax and read your favorite magazine.

This property comes with a special feature --- a neighborhood private beach. Board a ferry (with a pass) which runs every 30 minutes until sunset. This is a lovely private place which is phenomenal for shelling since it is private. There are rules for the number of guests allowed, no alcohol is allowed, and it is a privilege not to be abused. Contact us for more info.

One small dog under 15 lbs allowed with pet fee. If you choose to stay with your pet, there is a carpet cleaning after pet stay of $230 plus taxes so we can keep the property in great shape.

This home is ideally located only 1.5 miles to the Venice Ferry (5 min drive, 7 min bike ride), less than 20 minute drive to Historic Downtown Venice and the Venetian Waterway Park, only 7 minute drive to Shamrock Park & Nature Center where Fido will have a wonderful experience. The Manasota Key Beach only 10 minutes away!!

My husband and I as well as our Golden Doodle rented the "Smiling Dolphin" to escape the cold of the Northeast this winter. As soon as we entered the house it was warm and welcoming. The place was immaculately clean and the furnishings are very nice. it really has all the amenities one needs. The highlight of the house is the lanai and the lake. We spent lots of time having our meals outside and watching all the different birds and wildlife. Very quiet neighborhood as well. Ann & Loretta were very nice to work with and easy to reach if we had a question. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

Lid to garbage can blew off on Friday and cracked the lid. Do not know if it happened before or from the storm. Went to make pull out bed/couch and there were mouse droppings. We vacuumed bed sheet and bottom area of bread One of beach chairs was broken. Went to use grill and propane tank was completely empty. Cost $23.00 to fill. Needed some help with some appliances but found no manuals on usage. As a suggestion owner needs to expand beach toys. A king bed in master would be nice too. However, not totally dissatisfied. Unit is small but does have some nice features. Lake view is nice too. When cable went out for 7 hours management was responsive.

As lifetime city dwellers, the peaceful, easy, restfulness (coupled with easy access to beaches, stores, etc), made our stay quite wonderful.

We are very pleased with the property we rented. The home has every thing we were looking for. We will definitely tell our friends about this place, if they are looking for property to stay at in the area. The view of the pond is very nice when we are sitting relaxing on the patio. Also the trip to the private beach on the ferry was very nice and enjoyable,

From the beginning Sarasota Vacation Rentals has been a pleasure. They have a phone number that can get you to someone who is professional and gets results. The property where we are staying is “clean as a whistle” and has a private setting on a residential pond in a neighborhood. Since we are staying for month we were trying to audit what we would need for an extended stay. A minor issue (broken nightlight in bathroom) along with a couple of small items were personally delivered within a few hours. Lots of birds to observe and close proximity to shopping restaurants and beaches make this house seem extremely tenant friendly.
