This was an absolutely perfect getaway–in absolutely every respect. The home is completely accommodating; thoughtfully welcoming, and with such attentiveness to the countless nuances of the household which could so easily be overlooked when traveling–there was not a single comfort or necessity we were without during our stay. Birgit and Uwe have provided a foothold to another world. The location is ideal–off the thoroughfare and close to both the wild and the civilized; a bike ride and a private ferry across the bay to an unspoiled idyllic gulf beach, and a minute by car to every domestic item and service South Venice Beach has to offer–and convenient to so many options to explore: a multitude of parks and natural areas and open spaces within minutes, as well as dining, nightlife, and shopping experiences close by in every direction. And we were so fortunate to have truly marvelous Florida weather during the week: moderate temperatures, minimal humidity, a mild cool breeze and frequent modest clouds, and perfectly clear skies–the visibility was astounding. And the pool! Wunderbar! Our time at the Villa Happy Gator is an experience that will stay with us.
