The space

A Sweet Suite! Come stay. You’ll have your own private room, and sitting room, all decorated with the garden, and You in mind. It’s arty rather than flowery. Restful but fun.

The sitting room holds your coffee and tea setup, fresh water, cooktop, microwave, fridge, storage cabinet and flat panel TV with cable and wifi. Get yourself set up at the old farm table. Just hang out in the sitting room or on your private deck and stare out at the garden. There's a double sleeper sofa with a comfy Serta mattress for a kid or two or a friends' getaway. Step out of your sitting room onto the covered deck. There’s a swing hanging from an old oak and the pool is steps away. It’s all surrounded by garden. It's how "we do!" (Come visit!)

You’re welcome to use the screened–in salt-water pool, and walk the boardwalk and paths through the garden. In fact: You’re just plain Welcome!

We try to keep as green as we can. There’s no lawn. It’s All Garden. We compost. We don’t smoke cigarettes. We try to recycle.

We’re about 15 minutes away from the Island of Venice with its adorable shops and the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. Our house is within minutes of restaurants, shopping, the movies and theater and we’re about 30 minutes from Sarasota.

The Garden House was the most charming and relaxing retreat I've ever treated myself to. My friend and I had such a relaxing weekend. Andye was a sweetheart from first contact to goodbye. The garden house is as also such a short drive to downtown Venice, restaurants, and beaches.

I can't say enough good things about Andye and her home. Andye is a fantastic host who makes herself available to you if you need anything and adds some very thoughtful touches to your stay (home made cookies and other snacks, a binder full of suggestions for things to do around town, beach towels and chairs, etc). The gardening and landscaping is really beautiful and eclectic and the patio felt very private. The space is cute and comfortable (I slept like a baby in that bed) and feels very separate from the main house. The saltwater pool is an added bonus to the stay. It's awesome! Staying here totally made our trip to Venice!

We loved this Airbnb! The host Andye is kind and thoughtful. The Sweet Garden suite is private and has all the amenities needed to make your stay everything you want it to be . The furnishings were super comfortable and clean. There is a small refrigerator, hot plates for light cooking and coffee pot. Andye left us delicious homemade cookies, coffee, breakfast bread, butter, cream , water , and OJ! The gardens and pool area are enchanting and peaceful. The location allows easy access to all Venice beaches, 12-15 minute drive, and 20 minutes to Siesta Key . Andye provides beach towels, beach chairs, cooler and extras. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this Airbnb! We will stay there again!

Convenient location: minutes from the beach and the charming downtown center. Andye's place is filled with homey touches, such as soft towels, travel-sized toiletries, crisp sheets, and welcoming snacks in the fridge. Beauty in the garden--butterflies!--and unique decor inside. A warm, peaceful atmosphere. Thank you!

The sweet suite is indeed that and more. Andye is a welcoming host - she provided delicious bread and butter, cookies, fruit and mint water upon my arrival. She is available when you need her and provides privacy the rest of the time. The suite is cozy and comfortable. The covered porch is the perfect place to hang out and admire the lovely plants. I used the swing she has hanging from a tree after a swim in her pool - perfect for drying off. Andye told me of a great bike place that delivered a rental bike. The bike trail is very close. The suite is located near several beaches and is in a great location. I will definitely return!!!
