About the property

Villa in Venice, Florida Gulf Coast, USA - 5 Min Stroll To A Superb Beach

This deluxe home is only a short stroll along the beautiful quiet wooded lane to the sparkling Gulf waters that lap the never ending sandy beach of Manasota Key and is nestled in a area of outstanding natural beauty. The villa has the advantage of being on a larger than average plot, and is surrounded on all side by trees and shrubs, making the location extremely private. The villa is located a short drive from Venice town center, and downtown Englewood with a wealth of restaurants, shops, entertainment, cinema and restaurants close by. The villa is a large, spacious, air conditioned with high cathedral ceilings; 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, deluxe home with fast wireless internet access which has been decorated and furnished with great care, taste, and elegance. The high cathedral enhance the appearence of space. The villa also benefits from a number of special features that make it one of the most attractive in the area. The lounge with two large sofas and oversized armchair, is complete with 55 inch TV/DVD, up to 160 channels, Apple TV box including Netflix. This is adjacent to the beautifully appointed dining room. The kitchen is well equipped with all the modern appliances you could wish for, and also features a breakfast bar with 4 stools. Facing the Kitchen is the informal family room with three seater sofa, two chairs, and occasional table, plus sliding doors that also lead to directly on to the patio and pool.

SPACIOUS LUXURY. The bedroom accommodations are also very spacious. The master bedroom with its large bathroom en suite, is complete with his and hers basins, large walk-in shower plus an attractive bath tub. The bedroom is exceptionally "spacious" with the American king-size bed, beautifully appointed furniture, 42 inch TV/DVD/ Cable Tv, Roku including Netflix and at the far end a "retreat." Here you can relax on the two seater sofa, with your feet up on the foot stool, watching the sun shimmering on the sparkling pool through the patio doors.

The second master bedroom, although not as large as the first, is still beautifully appointed with a American King-size bed 32 inch TV/DVD/ Roku including Netflix. It has its own en suite bathroom with shower and sliding patio door that takes you directly out to the large "deck" and pool. The remaining two guest bedrooms are a good sized and are well appointed - one with Queen bed and one with twin beds both have TV's/DVDs and share the third bathroom (toilet, basin, bath, and shower).

The home's southwest-facing location has enabled us to situate a larger than average pool and patio so it faces towards the Gulf of Mexico. This provides you with the benefit of the maximum amount of sun (which is especially important in the winter months, when the north-facing homes lose the sun at around three in the afternoon).The deck area around the Pool has lots of space to relax, eat, barbecue, or sunbathe. We had a 30ft x 15ft sports pool built here so you can really swim (many rental villas have small pools that don’t afford much swimming space). Pool heating is also available for those cooler times of the year at an extra charge – in the summer; the water is more than warm enough though.

With a larger pool comes a much bigger deck area, which has two tables with 12 chairs in total and five sun loungers plus an outdoor sofa, chair and side tables. Two BBQ’s (one gas, the other charcoal) which are kept in the garage for protection from the elements, they can easily be wheeled out onto the deck area, so you can enjoy the pleasure of outdoor cooking in Florida.

A five minute stroll and you’re on the beach. And yes, at the weekends the locals come down, but even then it doesn’t get crowded. In the evenings people visit just to see the sun set – don’t be too surprised if you hear spontaneous applause as the sun disappears over the horizon. It’s puts life right into perspective.

Venice beaches are the world capital for pre-historic shark teeth (no live sharks to worry about these days by the way) – and you can spend hours in the warm surf searching for them. It’s almost addictive.

The fishing is amazing too and everybody is so friendly. The beach has it’s own life guard, changing facilities, showers, toilets and a range of outdoor BBQ’s you can use.

Our house is located in a very quiet area, which is a short drive from Venice town centre and downtown Englewood , it is a tree-lined road used only by local residents. Strange as it may seem the sight of a car on Lemon Avenue is very rare and you’re more likely to encounter a neighbour walking their dog or heading for the beach.

The beach itself is a mere five minute stroll from the house, 2 minutes by car if you’re feeling decadent.

For the golfing enthusiast, there are at least 10 courses within a 15 minute drive. A public driving range is just 5 minutes away. Tennis can be played at the public courts in Venice or just around the corner from Manasota Beach Road.

Boats can be hired from several marinas in the area, plus there are also two Scuba diving shops in Venice. You can also hire bikes on the main road to Venice (we have two bikes in our garage). Cycle tracks line a long stretch of the Intracoastal from Shamrock Park, whilst the old railway line to Sarasota is also now a cycle and walkway. In Venice & Englewood, you will also discover a wealth of parks and nature reserves.

Stables for riding and pony trekking are also nearby. For fishing you have Venice pier and of course our own beach, plus those at Blind Pass and Englewood, plus the Intracoastal – the coastline is superb for shelling too and our beach is famous for collecting fossilized sharks teeth!

A Frank’s multiplex cinema is just 5 minutes drive away and the Venice bowling alley is 10 minutes drive.

As for other places of interest: Sarasota offers great shopping, restaurants and Cinemas and beaches, whilst Boca Grande, Punta Gorda, Myakka State National Park, St Petersburg, Sanibel plus Captiva are all within easy reach. Orlando and Disney are just a two-hour drive away.

Also there is a sets of golf clubs for guests use, A great little golf course (par 3/4) with driving range nearby, it has great rates and is a less challenging course for those who are new to golf, if you've always fancied having a go, organize a couple of lessons.......

Finally It’s a very safe area– as is the whole area. For the very best price, contact us directly through our web site w w w

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived after the big storm, and spend the first night in a local hotel as the power was down. Lorraine was excellent in keeping us upto date and power was on in the next morning.

We have stayed many times in this area but this

Place is the best so-far!!

Beautiful relaxing Villa in secluded settings

  • 5 of 5

This was our first Villa rental holiday and the first impression from correspondence with the Owners was fantastic. Everything was made clear and any questions prior to arrival were responded to in a quick and polite manner. the Villa itself is very secluded but only minutes from the beach and local amenities, which is what we were looking forward to.

The Home itself was huge; so much space for more than the 2 of us with 4 Beds and 3 bathrooms. the interior was light and airy was very relaxing when we spent some of the rainy times indoors. the pool area was amazing and being surrounded by many shrubs and trees; we could relax in or out of the pool without any disturbance at all.

everything from the Kitchen appliances through to the washing facilities all worked well and were in excellent order.

The local contact (for any issues etc.) were lovely and very helpful, even though we only spoke once on the phone and sms'd the rest of the time, it was nice to know that we could ask anything and receive a prompt response.

The Villa was very clean and we tried to leave it that way on departure. the deposit was refunded in a matter of days and i can only say that when we return for a scouting trip next year we will be looking at re-booking this villa as our first choice.

For those who are looking for a quiet, relaxing base to venture out from, this is the place. Enjoy and Relax.

Beautiful, clean, well kept home!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Lemon avenue for a week and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves! This house was so clean and beautifully decorated. Even the landscaping around the house was beautiful, especially around the pool. You felt like you were in your own little private oasis. The house was well equipped with everything you could need for the beach (beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc.) and the kitchen and bedrooms were well equipped as well. The master bedroom was an absolute dream!! This vacation was the perfect getaway for rest and relaxation!! Manasota beach was awesome too. It wasn't crowded, had lots of shark teeth and was a 45 second drive from the house. Lorraine was so kind and very easy to work with! We would definitely come again!!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Lemon Ave and 2nd to Lorraine's wonderful villa. We had just spent the previous week in Vegas for our daughters wedding, it was so refreshing to return to this immaculate property. Everything absolutely spotless, the location and pool area are outstanding. We hope to return soon for a 3rd time.

superb villa and location

  • 5 of 5

Location - what a beautiful neighbourhood. It really is private and peaceful yet only 5 glorious minutes walk to a lovely beach and the gulf waters. Our 7 year old loved waiting for boats to watch the drawbridge operate. The villa is superb. After 10 consecutive years in Florida this place is the best yet - beautifully appointed. Lorraine and Andy clearly take great pride in it. The many small touches really make a difference. Thanks also for the phone call on day 1 to make sure we were settled. Otherwise we had blue skies, glorious sunshine, saw dolphins off Casey Key and even a raccoon tip toe past the lanai out back. An incredible and relaxing alternative to Orlando. Would recommend and will return. The Hamsters from Lincoln.

Excellent Property - Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

I have been travelling to Florida for about 20 years and have stayed all over the state and in many different properties. This one is the best I have found to date. It is modern, clean and well equipped. The location is close to the sea and in a quiet residential area. We both loved it. It is exactly as described. What is also worth noting is the ease I had when dealing with rental via the owners and the speed in which my security deposit was returned. Recommended.
