About Owner

Hi! My name is Ruth and my husband Dan and I live in Venice so we can take care of any issues with the house ourselves. We visited the area in December 2011 from Pennsylvania and during our stay we decided to move here and have never looked back.

We chose this property for a vacation rental business because of it's proximity to beaches and quiet residential neighborhoods.

We own and manage this property ourselves. You will never have to deal with a property manager.

"This property was absolutely perfect!! It was mostly just me and my three LARGE dogs, but my best friend flew in and love the property too. We want to make this our annual get together and absolutely hope to stay here again."

Very Nice Rental - Excellent Property Manager

"Very nice property with very nice amenities. Property Manager responds to all communication promptly and is very helpful with providing all sorts of information. Things to do, ferry pass to the beach, very clean property in a quiet neighborhood. Simply a very nice place to spend time in Venice. We are extremely happy with this rental and highly recommend this property and manager."

The best pup-friendly house in Venice!

"Ruth is amazing! The house was perfect for me and my family, including Max the beagle. The fenced backyard is a huge plus! The beach umbrellas and shark teeth finders were helpful too. There were plenty of towels and pillows. The ferry was close by and always on time. (The ferry operators are tough - we tried to make them smile, but to no avail!). Even so, the trip was delightful and we loved our time at the Sandcastle Cottage. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying with Ruth again."

Great getaway

"This was a wonderful find in Venice. Great accommodations and convenient location as well as pet friendly. We would definitely book again."


"We, my golden-doodle and I, stayed in the Sandcastle Cottage in South Venice for 3 wonderful months! It is very near the Manasota Beach Park, South Venice Beach, Venice Friendship Center, Venice Island and Englewood Farmer's Market and shopping ... and two dog parks with one at the beach in Venice! The house was immaculate and well equipped with a very nice screened in lanai for dining and relaxing ... at breakfast or cocktails in the evening. It appeared recently renovated with new appliances, etc. Any questions I had about the house or the surrounding area were IMMEDIATELY answered by a quick email to/from the owner. She could not have done more to make our stay better. We loved the ferry to the South Venice Beach and the opportunity to meet neighbors heading for the same private rustic beach area. The Senior Friendship Center has activities all day with live music and dancing most afternoons. AND YOGA ON MANASOTA BEACH (3 miles away) WAS THE BEST EVER for all levels, ages (many senior citizens participate as well as younger people), abilities ... everyday at 9 AM (except Sunday). A perfect place for young and old ... and their furry 'children'. I would highly recommend it. "
