Private Homes house description

This is the most popular and rented home in the Venice area. Quality and value keep this home booked year round. Always spotless and first class in every way. Don't you and your family deserve the best for your vacation home? Please check availability calendar first.

This direct bay front estate home lies along the shores of Dona Bay. This 1994 home sits on a large private lot and has three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a formal and casual dining area, large family room (with a brand new hi def 52' flat panel LCD TV and DVD/DVR), living room, a large kitchen, laundry room and garage. All rooms are oversized, with the home boasting 2700 sf under air. The home is on a street of multi million dollar homes. Wi fi, too.

With the large private deck and pool as a centerpiece and the bay front providing big water views, the views are magnificent from every room in the home! The home has a private boat dock and boat lift for fishing and boating. The home is wonderfully decorated and is equipped with everything (even the hi def 52' LCD TV and DVD/DVR). It also has Verizon FIOS high speed wireless internet. The home has just been painted and all new flooring. Extra clean. With the split plan and two living areas, it has even accommodated two families in the past.
