About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

8 minute walk to the beach, 15 minute walk to Sharky's restaurant/bar and fishing pier, 25 minute walk to tons

of shopping, restaurants, and bars in Downtown Venice, FL.

- The Space -

This 1BD unit includes a full kitchen, full bathroom with a shower and tub, a bedroom with a queen size bed, and a living room with a couch and large TV. There is also a large outdoor patio and a large covered patio with seating and a parking space next to the unit. The unit has been newly remodeled and is clean and comfortable.

There is also free WiFi in the unit as well as cable TV in the living room.

- The Neighborhood -

The neighborhood is quiet and relaxed. Walking anywhere on the island is a breeze. Downtown Venice (25 minute walk) is packed with shops, restaurants, and bars. You can usually find live music in town on Friday and Saturday nights. There are often festivals in town on the weekends as well as a farmers market every Sunday.

The beach is the big draw for me, and is only an 8 minute walk away. Further south along the beach you can find Caspersen Beach at the southern tip of the island which has a very natural feel and is a great spot to find prehistoric sharks’ teeth - after all, Venice is known worldwide as the Shark Tooth Capital. There are also nature trails traveling through freshwater and saltwater marshes and mangrove areas. It is quite normal to spot a dozen or so tortoises while walking along these trails. Walking or biking along the Intracoastal Waterway is also highly recommended since Venice has a great paved path all along the way.

Venice also has plenty of great fishing. The popular spots are at the huge fishing pier at Sharky's (there is a bate shop right on the pier), or at the jetty at the northern tip of the island. You can often see dolphins and sometimes manatees from the pier and jetty. You can also choose to fish right from the beach if you'd like.

- Getting around -

Venice does have a bus system, but most of what you'll need is in walking distance, biking distance, or short driving distance. Taxis are also available.

There is a Publix (supermarket) right on the island (15 minute walk, 3 minute drive) and a Walmart 4.5 miles away.

- Other Things to Note -

The kitchen is stocked with the essentials including a full oven and stove, large refrigerator and freezer, microwave, toaster, blender, Keurig coffee maker, dishes, pots and pans, glasses, cookware and silverware as well as paper towels and dish soap.

The shower has shampoo, conditioner, body soap, as well as fresh towels. The bathroom also has toilet paper and hand soap.

If you are bringing 3 guests - the couch in the living room is available for sleeping on.

- Free WiFi in the unit and the living room has a TV with cable -

A little gem in Venice

  • 5 of 5

My friend & I stayed at this adorable condo for the Venice Shark Tooth Festival weekend. We had a wonderful stay! The condo is updated and very clean. Justin, the owner, is very attentive and accommodating. The condo has almost everything you might need: coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, fully stocked kitchen with dishes & flatware. . Fresh towels in the bathroom, fresh sheets on the bed. beach towels are also supplied! Condo is in a residential neighborhood full of friendly people walking & biking in the mornings. My friend & I walked to Sharky's on the Pier, a local bar/restaurant. Venice Beach is beautiful with free parking & great shelling.The Shark Tooth Festival was also in walking distance from the condo and was a lot of fun! Lots of vendors and amazing shark teeth of every size! We also visited the town of Nokomis, slightly north of Venice. There, we ate at two delightful restaurants: Pop's Sunset Grill (great food & live music) and Nokomis Sunset Hut (perfect for a cocktail at sunset). But we definitely saved the best for last. Our last night, we had dinner at Casey Key Fish House in Osprey. Delicious fresh fish!

Overall, a fabulous stay in Venice and visiting the local area in southwest Florida. I highly recommend a stay at this lovely condo in your near future.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The walk to the beach was easy and pleasant. Since we enjoy biking it was wonderful to have the city bike trails so close.

Justin was quick to remedy any problems we had. A second towel bar in the bathroom and a full length mirror and darkening curtains in the bedroom would be a plus. However everything was clean and comfortable

Unsatisfactory stay

  • 1 of 5

When we drove up to this property, we knew we were going to be in trouble. The outside of the unit does not look good. In place of the comfy looking outdoor chairs pictured were 4 plastic chairs. We had bugs throughout our stay even after the exterminator came through. Only 2 of the 5 windows could be open as 2 of windows were missing screens and 1 window kept coming down when you opened it. The unit was very oddly configured. Clothes closet and tiny bathroom were in the TV/dining area instead of being off the bedroom. The only window air conditioner was in the back room and that kept the bedroom cool but not the other two rooms. The side yard was a mess since there are three parking places way back in the yard. Only 2 coffee mugs and only 2 cereal bowls. After you take a bath, it takes about 30 minutes for the water to drain out of the tub. Need more lights in the middle room and more electrical outlets in the middle room and kitchen. A hook in the bathroom would help in hanging up your clothes.

We will NOT be staying there again.

Owner's Response: We were very sorry to hear that Dave and Nancy did not enjoy their stay. However, most of the issues they had could have been remedied during their stay if they had notified us about it. We didn't hear any of their concerns until over a month after their long stay had already ended. We pride ourselves on remaining very attentive with our guests and if ever there is an issue, we want to know so that we can remedy it as quickly as possible. Although late, the feedback was very useful and we've made great improvements to the property since then. We had very recently acquired the property at the time of Dave and Nancy's stay. Since then, all of the items they've addressed here have been fixed. The situation with the bugs has been completely remedied, windows have been fixed, landscaping has been upgraded, additional dishes have been added, the drain in the bathroom has been fixed and additional lights have been added. The only complaint from Dave and Nancy that we were unable to change was the layout of the unit. However, we think that most guests will agree that a bathroom that is off of the living room rather than the bedroom can be a benefit and not a disadvantage.
