Welcome to your beach cottage on Venice Island just 2 blocks to Venice Main St Downtown and 4 blocks to Venice beach.

Nestled on a beautiful lot with massive grandaddy pines and a few live oaks it is walking distance to everything the North end of the Island offers.

This gorgeous property was recently restored and updated including modern appliances and new furnishings (March 2013). There are 3 Bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The main bedroom features a king bed, the 2nd bedroom features 2 twin beds and the third smallest bedroom features a futon and a half bath and is adjacent to the largest bedroom. The yard and laundry room is shared with 3 small studio cottages located on the property (One Studio is available in a separate listing for a seasonal rental.

About Bryan Guentner

My wife and I have lived in the Sarasota-Venice area for over 25 years. I grew up in Wisconsin and Cheri here in Sarasota. We love walking on the beach and have two great children. We are also the broker/owners of RE/MAX Platinum Realty.

Bryan Guentner purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Bryan Guentner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We love the location and even stay here away from our 'normal' home for stay-cations once in a while. We ride our bikes around the island and walk to Main St, the beach, and the parks which are all just blocks away. This property is close to everything the north end of Venice Island offers... and it is our home away from home!

What makes this cottage unique

We love the grandaddy Pine trees in the front yard and enjoy just sitting on the covered porch area or the patio in the center of the yard. The Island breezes are great and this is a very relaxing property to hang around or come back to after a day at the beach or strolling along Venice Main Street. Relive a simpler time - all with modern appliances and entertainment options.

average rating of 3.5 based on 2 reviews

nice but the cleaners didn't do their job properly.

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here because the place we love to have that is a block to the beach was booked. We had a nice stay as always because we love Venice beach. As for the property, it's an older cottage which was not a problem and it was nice except that when we arrived, the place looked like it wasn't cleaned. It looked picked up but not clean. Some of the pans still have grease in them so I did wash all of them before using them. It looks cleaner when we left than when we arrived.
