Our Venice Island home is less than 2 blocks from the beach, has been an off-season short term rental for the past 10 years and was the only gold 5 star rated island home amongst approximately 20 others listed with the prior rental company. Unlike many other listings, we are a legally Licensed and Inspected Vacation Rental (A City of Venice requirement)
The TLC is evident from the moment you arrive. Lush landscaping greets you as you pull in the driveway and the warm feeling of home continues as you walk through the front door. The sunken living room is well furnished with that tropical feel of Tommy Bahama tables, comfy papasan chairs, couch and a large TV for those quiet evenings at home. The kitchen is equipped with virtually everything you'll need to whip up that gourmet dinner which you can enjoy in your dining room or poolside in your private lanai. Three bedrooms await in the split plan layout. Located on one side of the house is the master suite which is comprised of a private water closet/shower/bath, a walk-in closet and a large vanity/sink area to prep for those evenings out or to just retire to your king size bed. On the opposite side of the house are two large bright bedrooms with a shared full bath in between. Each bedroom has a queen size bed, ceiling fans overhead and plenty of storage.
Enjoy Swimming? Spend your days at your own private heated pool or stroll a block and a half away to your own private beach - the choice is yours! Enjoy biking? Venice is full of great trails and paths that can take you all the way to Sarasota or if you like an easier, shorter pace then just amble your way around the island. Enjoy walking? You can go south to Sharky's - one of the best Tiki Beach Bars in Florida - and enjoy that afternoon cocktail or walk north into town for lunch or that evening meal at one of the many restaurants. So many choices and so little time.
Caution: If you are not familiar with Venice, be sure you understand the difference between a Vacation Home on Venice Island and homes located off the Island of Venice that claim to be close to beaches and downtown Venice.
Enjoy your search and your vacation!
