About the property

So well located you don't even need a car to enjoy the best of Venice Island

We are right downtown on the Island in Venice. You can walk to anywhere or anything you need including our beautiful Beach in less than a mile. this is a very large one bedroom unit so spread out and relax. Quiet at night and weekends as we are in a business district. Pet friendly and owner downstairs on the premises most week days and only a few miles away if any problems should arise. The apartment is above a flower shop and really has no yard for children so they would need to be monitored very closely. Access to the apartment is by staircase only. The big balcony is ready for sun sitting however the smaller balcony is closed just now.

We liked the sunny, warmer climate. Besides walking to the downtown area, we walked to the library and church. The shopping area has a variety of restaurants. Also we enjoyed the ice cream stores. I enjoyed shopping in the shoe and clothing stores. There is an Art Center a block from the apartment for those who like to paint and etc. There are parks and trails for walking or biking. Venice is a lot busier than when we were there eight years ago.

Convenient location, very pet friendly, very quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the rental. We have two retrievers, around 40-45 lbs each, and the space worked very well for them. It was large enough for them to move around and not be cramped in a small hotel room. There was plenty of grassy space nearby and it was not on a busy street. There were also no immediate neighbors so it was very quiet and we didn't have to worry about the dogs barking and disturbing another guest. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, which was helpful because I had a last minute dish I had to prepare for our Thanksgiving family meal. Great location with an easy walk to Downtown Venice Island with all of the shops and restaurants. It was a very relaxing time. Debra was very accessible and answered all of my text messages with any of my questions. We will definitely stay there again.
