Enjoy your morning tea or coffee around the casual dining area adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen or ease back outside in the crisp morning air.
A Bird Bay getaway, the Village borders Roberts Bay, framed by the allure of Spanish moss draped trees, gentle winds and the delight of mangroves teeming with chirping wildlife.

Take a swim or snooze by the pool – a Clubhouse Olympic size, heated pool and another just steps from your door.

- Out and About -
Venture out to explore the local beaches, all with free access and free parking. Take a late morning stroll near Venice Fishing Pier and comb the beach for its wealth of fossilized shark’s teeth. Then, around lunchtime you’re right by Sharky’s, a Venice landmark since 1987. Sit outside on the covered deck and savor the ambiance while enjoying the Gulf breeze, refreshments and a snappy Grouper sandwich. South of the Pier lays Casperson Beach with its lengthy expanse of rolling sand dunes. Another favorite and only a five minute drive is Nokomis Beach – noted for its quite, un-crowded environment. From there, take a short walk south to the North Venice Jetty - watch the many boats passing to-and-fro from the Gulf. It gets crowded close to sunset, as people delight in the frequent sightings of dolphin pods feeding or playing near the beaches.
Venice also offers an award winning theater company as well as the Venice Symphony. For nature enthusiasts, the Venice Audubon Rookery’s walking paths allow sightings of more than 50 different birds and waterfowl.
Just 20 minutes north, explore Sarasota and its more urban flair with an abundance of cultural activities, fine shopping, diverse dining - maybe an evening opera or concert in the park. Dine amongst the many fine restaurants in St. Armand’s Circle, known for the casual people-watching atmosphere. Don’t forget the outer bank beaches and the world famous Siesta Key beach. Up that way, Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium is worth a visit with many interactive exhibits showcasing their world-renown research.
Up for some great diner/dive food, check out the Alpine Steakhouse - noted for the TurDuckKen special and with rave reviews from Guy Fieri's Food Network show! They also offer a wealth of savory German specialties - schnitzel, sauerbraten & bratwurst... Watch your waistline.
Back home now and forget to stop for some eats, within walking distance or a very short drive, the Village area offers a wide variety of eateries. Thai, Chipotle Mex, Irish, barbeque and seafood fare plus the usual assortment of fast food – burgers, subs, pizza etc. Over in Nokomis, try the seafood at Captain Eddies or the nightly specials and music at the Saltwater Café. Feeling adventurous, drive down to Venice Island and enjoy a variety of quality restaurants along Venice Avenue then maybe some live theater.
Come, relax in the sun. We love this place and all that the Venice area offers and you will too.
Enjoy your stay! CHECKOUT OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR!

We love Venice, Florida
We love Venice, Florida
The condo is in beautiful Bird Bay Village - with birds and wonderful tropical plants. Excellant location, close to downtown Venice, beaches and restaurants. The condo is on 1st floor - close parking for easy acess. It was spacious, comfortable chairs in livingroom, wonderful bed in master bedroom, all the appliances worked well. We cooked several meals - kitchen well equiped. Great washer and dryer. It was freshly painted and new carpet. Enjoyed shopping at all the quaint shops in downtown Venice. We ate at Sharkey's and Robbi reef - great places! We loved the South Jetty for the beautiful sunsets. Sarasota just 30 minutes away - Ringling Brothers Museum. We enjoyed our stay tremoundously - and we are coming back for the winter.

This first floor condo was perfect for our stay. It was spacious, well appointed, very clean and all appliances were in perfect condition. The new bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable for sleeping. The formal dining room was unexpected and on occasion we had friends over for a nice dinner. I would certainly recommend it to anyone interested in staying in the Venice area.

Owner response: Thanks for your review John - We certainly try to keep our unit in perfect condition and always ask our guests to call if anything is amiss so that we can be very proactive. Certainly the first floor, end unit, entry makes it very easy for older folks and one primary reason this unit was purchased. As you mention, it is very spacious having been converted from a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit to 2BD/2BA with a formal dinning room. We hope to see you back next year. Best

About the owner: We live and work in North Port (just south of Venice). We keep busy at our business, North Port Dental. When we aren't busy working, we are spending time on the water... beaching, shelling, or (as you can see from the photo) fishing! We love the Florida lifestyle! We also love Scooter, our little rescue dog that loves to be on the go. Please contact Barbara (941-769-1421) with any questions! We know the area well!
