We discovered Venice by chance - some friends from Italy brought us here and it was love-at-first-visit! I'm a writer and Martin is an entrepreneur. We live in New York and lead pretty hectic lives. When we take a break, we need to really relax. Here we bike, read, swim, eat and watch splendid sunsets. It's a perfect retreat.
Alexandra Marks purchased this condo in 2015
This was the first place we looked at in Venice and decided it was just right. It's on the beach, but set back. For a condominium it's also surprisingly private. The beach has just been rejuvenated and is wide and white and the water is emerald green and warm. It's perfect for swimming. Aldea Mar also has a pool, a putting green and shuffleboard. There is golf down the road and splendid beaches all around. Downtown Venice is a walk away and full of great local shops, restaurants and homemade ice cream parlors. There's also a Public supermarket just a mile away. You never need to leave the Island!
We've always wanted a little place on the water. At Aldea Mar, we can sit on our deck and watch the most splendid sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico, read while listening to the gentle waves and wind clacking through the palms, and watch pelicans feed and other birds soar just overhead. We hope you'll love it, too!
We really enjoyed our time at Aldea Mar and highly recommend the condo. Alex was very helpful and a great communicator when we were booking the condo.
The condo is in a perfect location, facing the ocean, right by the sand dunes and beach. Literally 2 minutes to the typical Venice wilderness beach, where 10 people is a crowd. Perfect for enjoying sunsets, fishing and wildlife spotting. The condo is very well furnished and just like the pictures on the web site. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and the local representative, Judy, made us welcome and showed us around.
The condo complex is very well maintained and the other residents were very friendly and welcoming, with lots of suggestions for interesting things to do, see and where to eat etc.
The pool is heated to a very comfortable temperature and a nice complement to the beach. The pool is also large, so never felt over loaded.
Venice, itself, retains its quaint charm, with loads to see and do, and with lots of parks and Sarasota so close by, a great vacation location.
We will be back soon, I hope.

We enjoyed our vacation at Aldea Mar. We loved the condominium, very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The beach was our front yard, what a great way to wake up each morning. The sunsets were beautiful each night totally different. The pool was perfect. Parks and trails easily accessible by bike or car. Venice is such a quaint town, a step back in time. Thank you for sharing with us.

Everything was great! Alex was amazing, house unbelievable, ocean and pool almost private, it was no people there, thanks a lot
This condo was just amazing! The high quality oozed from the high thread count linens to the Williams and Sonoma kitchen. Huge Tvs in the family and master were so nice. We loved the Murphy bed/office combo which allowed a perfect playroom by day and bed for the kids at night. The only drawback was the view was blocked by the dunes, which I expected as I have visited Venice many times and was aware of the dunes, but everything else was magical. We will be back!!
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at your condo!! The unit is fully equipped with anything we needed. It couldn't be a more perfect spot right on the beach. The pool and amenities were great and the sunsets incredible right from our family room!! Looking forward to returning next year.
Everything about this condo is a 5+! We absolutely loved our stay and can't wait until we can return again. The location could not be any more perfect. Only steps to the beach and to the gorgeous pool. And so convenient to the charming downtown shops area of Venice, to great restaurants, to great biking trails, etc. etc. The complex is off the busy streets and so charming and we felt so safe there the entire time. We met so many nice people who were also enjoying Alde Mar as either owners or renters. They all want us to return again - and we truly hope we can. This was the nicest place we have ever found in our years of going to Venice. It was recently updated and absolutely gorgeous. The bed was a dream, the kitchen beautiful and well stocked, both baths were wonderful, and all the extras that were provided for the guests, made it feel like home. I could write pages of how pleased we were with every little detail the owners went out of the way to do to make this so special. We only hope it doesn't become so popular that it is difficult to rent again :). But I still have to give the highest praise to this wonderful place. Thank you! Until next time - Marsha and Jim
Venice is one of Florida’s elegant older cities, rich in Mediterranean architecture with a palm tree-lined downtown full of locally owned ships. Small and friendly, the city also boasts miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches right Gulf of Mexico as well as direct access to the Legacy Trail on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Venice beaches are famous for their fossilized shark's teeth. In addition to Golden Beach, which is steps from our door, there are 4 others less than 10 car minutes away. They include Casperson Beach, Brohard Paw Park (where doggies are welcome!), Venice Beach, and South Venice Beach, a seven mile long gem which can only be reached by ferry. The best thing about our beaches, though, is that even during high season, they are never crowded!
Golfers come from around the world to our award-winning golf courses. Lake Venice Golf Course is just a mile from the house. Other courses include Bird Bay Executive Golf Club, Capri Isles Golf Club, and Waterford Golf Club.
The Shamrock Park & Nature Center is free and is located on the southernmost end of the Venetian Waterway Park Trail (aka Venice Bike Trail). It’s on the mainland side of Venice. The park includes a nature museum, picnic pavilions, playground area, tennis and basketball courts, restrooms, coldwater drinking fountains, and nature trails.
Downtown Venice is lined with wonderful small shops, very good restaurants and two home-made ice cream parlors.
Venice is central to countless other Florida attractions.
