Be clean, neat and mindful of the next quests. If apt is left with clutter and trash there will be a $100 surcharge attached to your credit card.

I am originally from Louisville,Ohio, transplanted in 1973 to beautiful Venice FL. I am married 40 years to Saint Phil, we have 3 children and 7 grandchildren all born and living in Sarasota County. My interests include golf, gardening boating grandchildren, reading traveling and I own a flower shop beneath the apt.
I love the outdoors, probably due to being raised in farm country in Ohio where my youth was spent on horseback running the fields and forests of Ohio.
I enjoy boating the fresh rivers in Florida where a great day is loading up a few grandchildren and hitting the river for some tubing real fast or loading up my girlfriends and floating real slow.
I play golf in a regular summer league when I am not so busy in the flower shop. I like to travel by car in any country, my next country is not determined yet. I have enjoyed Canada, Mexico, Norway and Ireland. i like to vacation in any mountain area a lot as I miss the the Ohio hills and it does me good to hike these types of area to recharge my soul.
I am an avid reader and if I want to know something I get a book or hit the internet to learn how to do it myself. I also like autobiographies and a good long novel with intrigue based in historical situations.
I listen to all kinds of music to suit my moods, if cleaning its rock and roll, if hiking its easy listening, if its boating its country, if driving it could be anything. i like a drum beat and a guitar for a backdrop to my life.
I love all foods but alas cannot eat them as much as I like because they make me grow! I eat healthy 5 to 6 days a week and eat with no worries that last 7th day because life is short and I like chocolate anything.
I DVR all sorts of movies with good plots and watch when I have the time, alas again I end up clearing them as I don't really have time to sit and watch, I am a mover. i tell myself when I retire I will watch tv series on the internet or netflix or whatever.. I do binge watch, lately House of Cards and Game of Thrones usually while touching base with friends and family on the internet.
When you are our guests we strive to give you privacy while you are in house, however we are very friendly and quite accessible any time you need anything or have just general questions. We want you to relax and enjoy yourself.
I listed the apartment on airbnb.com because I enjoy meeting people and it is available a lot during the off Season here in Florida. I traveled through Ireland via hostels and bed and breakfasts and completely enjoyed the ease traveling from place to place knowing my bed was waiting for me with a click of the mouse. I thought why is this not available in the USA? I recently read an article in our local paper about airbnb.com and SURPRISE there the solution was so I thought I would give this a try as i am already renting the apartment half of the year in Season. I hope I host some new tenants to let them enjoy Venice FL like we do.
