Property description

***Summer Beach Special 200.00 a night , 7 night minimum***
Riviera house is a delightfully updated 3 bedroom, 3 bath self catering beach house with lovely private swimming pool on the Island of Venice. This is our holiday home that has a wonderful unique "Old World" Florida feel with updated amenities. I personally manage my home right down the photos of my garden on the walls. My lush tropical garden has banana trees, coconut palms, naval orange, mandarin, mango and key lime trees,pomegranate and dragon fruit cactus and this is just it's edible landscape. The inside décor is described per one guests review as aesthetically pleasing with leather couches for cleanliness. Riviera house has Verizon Fios HD package with their the fastest 50G Wi-Fi Internet access which is throughout the house and pool area. Walk 2 blocks to beach, 5 blocks to Main Street.**Walk Everywhere or bike as there are 3 bicycles provided for your use. Our pet free (NO exceptions) & non smoking home has a NEW solar heated pool including a shallow 1st step sun shelf, sized at 4 feet x 4 feet (pictured) for children & adults which is set into a tropical lush and imaginative landscape design that over looks mature Bougainvilleas and flowering plants of all kinds plus my fruit trees. The kitchen's French doors and master bedroom open to the pool's courtyard with a beautiful Pergola, providing ample shade for your outdoor dining in the huge caged lanai. My pool lanai measures 33' x 37' to add an additional 1221 sq ft of living space. The very private pool and uniquely beautiful area is surrounded with old world courtyard pavers. Our privacy fence and mature plantings make this area concealed from view to enhance it's private solitude appeal for your intimate enjoyment. (see photos). Riviera House added a new family room addition to showcase it's 50" HD TV for family movie night after a long day at the beach! Our Blue Ray player can get you access to your Vudu or Netflix account if our vast DVD collection is missing your movie choice. Showtime consortium package of 60 movie channels are included free to you in the Fios package. Master bed is a new Euro king pillow top and the 2nd & 3rd bedrooms have new plush mattresses added March 2014. The Master has it's own bathroom "en suite" and a 32" HD TV . 2nd Queen bedroom also has a 32" HD TV. 3rd full size bedroom has the 4th TV in the home but plays DVD's only. Our quiet neighborhood provides the ambiance to appreciate island sounds and lifestyle. My dining room overlooks the front circular courtyard with pavers surrounded by a thick lush tropical berm with huge Birds of Paradise, Plumeria (Lei flower), Pony Tail Palms, Coconut palms , Honeysuckle and many more. Enjoy the undiscovered Florida as Venice Island beaches have no crowds. On Florida's west coast you will be able to enjoy the warmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Loacated close to Florida attractions without staying with the swarm of tourists. To partake in 'Spring Break' madness just drive 20 mins north to Siesta Key. Then return to Venice Island's beautiful beaches that are lined with sand dunes and the sounds of the Gulf. Come in October and watch Sea turtles nesting and babies running to the water. Venice is a wonderfully quiet small beach town with restaurants and theatre just waiting to be explored. Renovated with new tile floors throughout, new modern kitchen with filtered water , new windows , appliances. Tastefully furnished with modern Ikea furniture. Always CLEAN & freshly painted inside and out. We also have a work station desk if you must work or check your email poolside with wireless router! The house is complete with central heat in case you come across a chilly night. Riviera house has a quiet premium island location close to everything, especially the beach. Venice library & community center on same street just 3 blocks north. Publix, a full service grocery market (deli, liquor and sunscreen) is only 3 blocks and a full service Walgreens drugstore 1 block further. Downtown restaurants on/off main street only 5 blocks away. Riviera house has many little conveniences such as beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs, books, games, coolers, and pool toys. Don't spend your vacation driving around or taking ferries to the beach. When you stay at our home there is no need to leave the island ...it's all here. International web viewers please check out the great unsolicited reviews on my primary Web Site www.vrbo.com/110942. Please check calendar for openings. 28+ nightly rentals @250.00 a night during peak season. NO PETS, no exceptions, NO multiple families. No more than 4 adults with 2 children under 12 years of age or 5 adults maximum occupancy. I used Pay Pal so every financial transaction is definitely secure. ***Sub leasing not allowed and you will FORFEIT $1000.00 security/damage deposit upon violation. Outside perimeter cameras offer added security.

Car: Recommended

Hunting for fossilized shark teeth is a must!! We also like to get an ice cream cone and walk the North Jetty at sunset looking for Dolphin and Manatee as they are visible feeding that time of night. There is also a Flying Trapeze school if you like a challenge. Sight seeing rides at local airport are available and parasailing is offered . Jet ski and boat rentals are also a must. New zip line attraction is offered for a day trip. Busch Gardens is an hour away and Disney or Universal studios is 2 hours by car so these are great day trips too.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: The only place I know of to hunt for fossilized shark teeth! We have a family competition at the beach to find the biggest shark tooth...at the end of the day the person with the biggest tooth decides where we go for dinner. After dinner we love to have poker night with the whole family pool side. Since we use pretzel as chips we never really know who wins!

Why the Owner Chose Island of Venice:
All the conveniences AND a quaint beach town. Everything is so accessible you don't waste any time in the car driving around on a quest in search of necessities or on a ferry to the beach. I especially enjoy my lush tropical garden that I continues to improve with as many tropical plants as possible. There are 2 orange trees, multiple banana trees, mango tree, dragon fruit cactus, key lime tree, coconut and pomegranate trees. It's also nice to BBQ around the pool or we like to dine around the pool with take-away and my landscaping makes it all very private !! Dinner with all the ambiance and none of the work !!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
2 blocks to the beach ....never any crowds. Venice Island beaches are still undiscovered by the masses! I'm a gardener and what I love about my house is the awesome landscaping!! I walk the yard in the morning with my cup of coffee and absorb all the marvels of the my tropical plants.
