Overview

About the property

There is no better place to spend your vacation then Venice Island, Florida.

At Alba House you will be close to everything fun the Island has to offer. This home has two bedrooms and two full baths. All linens, bedding, and towels are provided. The master bedroom has sliding glass doors to the screened in lanai. The master bath is newly renovated with shower and direct walkout to the pool. The second bathroom has a bathtub with shower. The den can be used as an office or as a guest room with a full size sofa bed and pocket doors for privacy. The main area is an open floor plan- with living room and dining room. There are sliding glass doors that open to the screened in lanai and pool from the dining room. There is a separate TV room with custom built in entertainment center with 48' HDTV. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer.

Wifi and internet is available throughout the house and in the pool area. Central air conditioning.

The eat-in kitchen has everything you need for cooking meals at home. There is even purified water tied directly into water tap and ice maker in the refrigerator.

The very large heated swimming pool is 8ft deep at one end with walk in steps with handrail to the shallow end. We provide a barbeque grill on the lanai for outdoor cooking. The yard outside the screened lanai is fenced all around for kids and dogs to play safely. It is beautifully shaded with old trees to keep the area cool on hot days.

The library, art center, and community center are only blocks away. The quaint downtown with many outdoor restaurants, shopping, concerts in the park, and festivals. Three beaches are very easy to get to - even by bicycle - Brohard dog beach, Caspersen (shark tooth beach) and Venice Beach (don't forget free morning yoga on the beach). Enjoy paddleboarding, snorkeling, kayaking, boating right here on the island. Alba house is also blocks from Lake Venice Golf Course.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Here for 2 beautiful months! The house was very clean, spacious, and the pool was fabulous (oversized). Very close to Venice and the beaches. Owners were very attentive the few times we had questions.

Had a Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, convenient, and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Loved the pool. Would stay there again. Despite the rainy weather we had a wonderful time. The only thing we missed was a hair dryer. Everything else was right there. The tile floors made it easy to clean up the sand. We loved the house setup: computer room, tv room, all the other rooms you would expect--and the rooms were spacious. An easy walk to a beach for sunset added to our enjoyment.

All around AMAZING Experience. 100+ Stars!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to say enough wonderful things about this lovely home and its caring owners. From the start of the reservation process, Jill was very friendly and helpful and made booking easy. Their home is definitely my favorite place I've stayed at in the Venice area. It is very clean and has all the amenities you could ever need or want! The lounge area by the pool is very nice to come back too after a day at the beach. Speaking of the beach, they even provide beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and a cart! The house stayed very cool even while it was so hot outside. I loved the TV room especially that was separated from the bedrooms. My dad could watch TV as loud as he wanted and it doesn't bother the people who are trying to sleep. Jill was an extremely kind and gracious host, who was there to help very quickly if I needed to ask her any questions. She was very helpful throughout the whole trip! She's one of those people you'll meet whose kindness will touch your heart. My dad LOVED cooking out on the grill every day which is out by the pool. The beach is a very very quick drive or bike ride away, its the perfect location. I hope to be able to return to this lovely house soon! Thanks so much, Jill!
