About Bill and Marie Deats

We love to visit Florida as often as possible, especially to get away from the cold weather and snow in the Northeast.

The average high temperature in November and December is 74F in Venice.

Bill and Marie Deats purchased this villa in 2015

Why Bill and Marie Deats chose Venice

I have been visiting the West Coast of Florida with my parents and grandparents since I was a child. We chose Venice as it is such a quaint area with everything you need in a vacation area without all of the traffic and congestion. It is convenient to the beach with fabulous resort like amenities for all. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this villa unique

Beautiful villa in Tuscan inspired Gran Paradiso, Venice Fl, in a gated community with 24 hour security.

Villa Aqua Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Just winding up a one-month stay at Villa Aqua-Outstanding!!! From the comfortable Villa equipped better than any rental I have ever been in, to the beautiful sunsets over the lake, and the resort style rec center and pool. Close to great beaches and dining from chain restraints to upper class 4-star presentations.... We highly recommend this Villa.

Fabulous Place to Winter!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot to spend the winter! Villa looked as if it was professionally decorated with all the comforts of home. Completely stocked kitchen with all you would need along with plenty of bedding; bath towels and even provided beach towels! Extra large lanais was perfect for hosting cocktail hour and to enjoy the Venice sunsets. No problems, everything went along smoothly. I would not hesitate to rent from Marie and Bill again!

We just completed a 3 month stay at this location. The Villa is brand new and tastefully furnished with nice furniture and all of the necessary equipment for a prolonged visit. The rooms are very comfortable and the extended lanai is a definite positive. The new clubhouse has a beautiful pool and a great recreational center. It is a pleasant street and our next door neighbors were very nice (something important in a Villa). We found the location to be just right for us with easy access to the beach and to various golf courses as well as to downtown Venice and Englewood. Most of our activities (and friends) were within a 15 minute drive with places like Sarasota or Gasparilla Island just a little further. We have been renting in this area for the last 10 years, and this was one of the nicer places that we have found. We highly recommend it for facilities, comfort and location..

We enjoyed our stay at this brand new (Oct 2015) villa in Gran Paradiso. The villa has a large screened lanai and overlooks a nature area, and to the side, a lake for privacy. The Master bedroom had a slider to the lanai and a master bath with tub and shower to complement the king bed. The kitchen was well appointed and allowed us to cook many of our meals. There was an office that could double as a 3rd bedroom with its own tv that could be closed for privacy. The garage with opener and key pad locks on the doors allowed us access without keys. The villa is in a quiet area of Gran Paradiso but we walked to the recreation area where we enjoyed a sun deck, warm clover leaf pool, hot tub, billiard table, card room, tennis courts and pickelball courts. We felt welcomed by the locals wherever we went including a shopping mall just a couple of miles to the west which had multiple places to eat and shop.

The owners were easy to work with by phone and email and we would recommend this villa for those wanting to be around Venice, Florida.

Beautiful Venice area offers a clean downtown area for great shopping and dining.

Enjoy collecting shark teeth and shells at the many local beaches.

Please note that Google Maps is not up to date at this time and does not show our villa or all of the villas on the block surrounding ours as the construction was recently completed in September. It also does not show the brand new resort pool, tennis or pickle ball courts at this time as Google Maps is out of date. They are gorgeous and ready to enjoy as you can see by the pictures included in the listing. The pool, spa, courts and clubhouse are within walking distance of the villa, or you can drive and park in the expansive parking lot.
