Enjoy a bit of old Florida. We live on an acre in a rural area that is close to I-75. Our neighborhood is surrounded by county owned preserves that lend to biking, hiking, and scenic walks. Ideal for nature lovers and those that enjoy a break from the city life.
We expect common courtesy and respect for both animals and property. If in doubt, feel free to ask. *We are following CDC guidelines for Covid-19.
Tow vehicle may be parked next to the rig or in a grassy area in the front or side of the house.
We are 20 minutes from Historic downtown Venice and three beaches, Casperson, Venice, and Nokomis. The Legacy bike trail is within driving distance. The are many restaurants to choose from and seasonal concerts at the Gazebo in Venice. We are 30 minutes from Sarasota and the famous Siesta Key Beach.
Great shady spot on rivers edge. Friendly (as covid will allow) host. Wish we had more time to explore the area.
The hosts are very friendly and generous, coupled with a beautiful spot. What a great combination, we loved our stay.
What a great place to rest for a few days! We loved our stay there. So beautiful and peaceful. The host went beyond hospitable. This was the perfect spot to get away from it all. Thank you so much for this experience.
Not only is this in a peaceful and beautiful location yet close to downtown and beaches, but the hosts are fantastic and so gracious. Hard to leave but there is more to see. We now feel fortunate to call them friends and hope to see them again.
DUKE and I had a great few days here. The home is beautiful , the city is beautiful, and the family is extra beautiful. Very welcoming... we even had a pot luck while enjoying the football game on my last night there. We will always remember our experience in Venice! You would be blessed to stay here. Talk soon on our FB page.
What a gorgeous location with the most wonderful hosts! We could not have imagined being welcomed with such love and hospitality. We only regret not having enough time to spend at this lovely retreat however, we will be back when our adventure brings us around again someday.
Absolutely beautiful location! It is like having your own little retreat! The hosts are awesome people. Very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. This was our first time using Boondockers Welcome and they made our experience absolutely perfect. Thank you so much!
Hosts were very friendly and have a beautiful location. I really liked the proximity to the beach, hiking and cycling trails and the City of Venice activities.
My stay at River's Edge Retreat was exceptional. From the location, which was very quiet and scenic, to the incredible hosts. Hosts were definitely the highlight of the stay. They were so kind and I felt very welcome in their company and on their property. They are great people, Hopefully Oliver and I can stay there again soon !!
Had a wonderful time staying at Rivers Edge Retreat. Wonderful hosts and beautiful spot on the river. Thank you
Very friendly, welcoming & informative of the area, beautiful spot, nice & quiet. They are top notch hosts & highly recommend them.
Wow! Our host couple and their groovy family were absolutely amazing! Words cannot properly convey our gratitude for their extreme kindness and generosity. We are SO grateful that we have made lifelong friends! We look forward to seeing them again. Beyond all that their property is magical. We found a little slice of heaven.
Was quick but sweet. Wonderful area and the host were welcoming and knew the area well.
Had the best time staying in the Beautiful shady yard of Terri and Steve. They were so kind and helpful and I count on us to be friends, real friends, from this point onwards. Loved staying here and feel very grateful!
