About the property

Home on Intracoastal Waterway and Venetian Waterway Biking Trail

NEW POOL AND NEW SCREENED LANAI ARE COMPLETE AND BEAUTIFUL! This three bedroom, two bathroom home has undergone renovation in 2015. The renovation includes a new kitchen with hardwood maple cabinets and granite countertops. The master bathroom remodel includes new cabinetry and all new fixtures, modern shower tile with "wood plank" floor tile . The laundry room was enlarged to allow for ease of use along with extra room for beach gear, etc. This amazing home is located on a dead-end street with a wooded area to the south and green space across the street to the north-east. The back of the home faces west with glass-sliders opening out onto over-sized new paver lanai with gorgeous pool from master bedroom and entire expansive length of living room giving the feel of endless room. Although this property is populated with several beautiful trees, there is no shortage of sun!

The backyard is a peaceful sanctuary for Florida birds and a pass-through for the small timid bobcat. Walk forty steps off the backyard and you will be on the Venetian Waterway Bike/Walking Trail with miles of paved path that follow the Intracoastal Waterway and connect to the Legacy Trail which continues toward Sarasota. You can also bike to several businesses, restaurants, beaches, and parks on the island of Venice from the Venetian Waterway Trail.

Hop on your bike, take a walk, or relax on the bench (as pictured) and be mesmerized by the view because you are also on the Intracoastal Waterway. This is home to dolphins, manatees, and endless marine life. The Intracoastal Waterway runs parallel to the Gulf of Mexico and accommodates everything from kayaks to large yachts traveling locally or those traveling from northern parts of Florida toward the Keys.

This home is in a neighborhood with it's own private beach. Beach access is a mile south of the home and is accessed by ferry via the intracoastal waterway. This area also accommodates boat launching. Another bonus for this homes location is Shamrock Park. Shamrock Park is within walking distance of this amazing home and offers nature trails, tennis courts, basketball courts, large children's playground, picnic areas, and restrooms. It is also home to the Florida Scrub Jay (a blue robin-sized social bird) and several tortoises, not to mention large Florida birds.

This home is managed by Angie Lambrecht of JL Cochran Property Management. Angie has a long and trusted reputation as a PM dating back to Januaty 2010 with listings on VRBO including listing numbers 284113, 356210, 706152, 689621, 784720, and 776624.

I have been vacationing in this area of Florida for 6 years. During that time, I have stayed in some very high end properties directly on the beach. This property is my favorite.

This property is located at the end of intersecting streets which is very private. The house itself is very nice. It’s well maintained and very comfortable. The pool and lanai are great. The yard contains numerous large palms which provide filtered sunlight during the day.

I am a biker and having direct access to the Venetian Waterway Bike Trail right out the back yard was a huge attraction. This trail also connects directly to the Legacy Trail in Venice. Whether walking or biking this trail is a real treasure. At the south end of the trail (1 mile) there are great tennis and basketball courts and a Nature Center. Fishing is also available off the bank of the intercoastal directly adjacent to the trail.

The City of Venice and its downtown are among my favorites with great shops and restaurants.

I had a couple of very minor questions during my stay and Angie, the property Manger, as well as the owner, were immediate in responding.

This is a great place and I highly recommend it.

Beautiful Hidden Resrt

  • 5 of 5

This propertyis a real hidden gem. Located right on the intercostal water way which is steps from your back yard. The house was super clean and well equipped. The pool area was so relaxing. And the landscaping is beautiful! We really enjoyed our stay here and we would definitely return!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet residential area, biking and hiking along the intercoastal waterway right at your back door and a lovely covered pool area all adding up to a most pleasant stay at this newly remodeled home. We were serenaded each evening by a Chuck-wills Widow and listened to an Eastern Screech owl in the distance. We were able to enjoy our meals under the covered pool area every day we were there in March. The pool was lovely to enjoy both during the day and early evening. Kitchen was well stocked with all utensils needed and washer, dryer convenient at back entrance. Be ready to relax and enjoy a stay at this clean, welcoming home.

Venice Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely please with this home and its warm and relaxed feel. Regardless if you are a biker, hiker or a pool person and just wanted to hang out in the spacious caged in pool area, or venture straight out your back door to explore the miles of paved bike and hiking paths along the inter-coastal waterway, it was at your desire. If you are a beach goer you are centrally located to numerous world famous Gulf beaches within a short travel distance. This was one of the most private secluded properties we have had the pleasure to stay in and would definitely recommend it to family and friends. Right from the beginning of our booking the property manager Angie was more than helpful, in fact when my wife discovered she had forgot her hair dryer, one call and Angie immediately came to the rescue. As if she was not enough of a delight herself, we were introduced to Angie's husband Gary whom handles all of the maintenance issues and was equally friendly and helpful when he responded to our request to have the pool heater turned on, for a small cost, which I recommend. The home and property where clean and neat, just as described, with everything we needed during our stay. We have been vacationing in the Venice Area for approximately 20 years and have truly found a Venice Gem.

If you ever dreamed of being on Gilligan's Island, without the expense of the boat trip, this is the spot for you. Three minutes from the main highway is an oasis of peace and serenity. We watched ospreys fishing for their meals and eagles grabbing if from the ospreys. Some birds hunted the geckos with deadeye precision while other ones seemed to just enjoy the beauty surrounding them. A mother and baby manatee were spotted ,as well as some dolphins, in the intracoastal waterway which is about 100 steps from the house. The house had all the conveniences and more than you would have at home. The lovely kitchen is very well stocked for any cooking you might want to do. A gas fired grill and crock pot added to the convenience. We used the new pool most days but took a few trips to the private beach which was fun. The only bad part of the whole experience was leaving. We are looking forward to a return trip in this great spot.
