Property description

THE HOUSE IS FINISHED IN IT'S ORIGINAL MID-CENTURY-MODERN STYLE...WITH ALL OF TODAYS CONVEINCES...
Everything is like Brand New! Just added, new heat pump for low volume silent AC and Heat. Completely Hypo-Allergenic.

Our home has just been totally restored to its 1956 original Florida style home with all of today's modern features.

We are just four blocks to the Gulf Beaches (a 10 minute walk) and five blocks to Historic Downtown (an 8 minute walk). You will be one of the first to enjoy our fully remodeled 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, Venice Island home.

You will love the 9 foot sliding door that hides behind the wall opening, to the screened in Lanai. It’s like you are living out of doors.

The new kitchen is filled with all new appliances and everything you'll need for your cooking enjoyment. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee in the large 400 sq. foot screened in Lanai with an unobstructed 9 foot opening to the rest of the house.

Relax after a busy day of biking the island in our casual living room with the 60” LED Smart TV while enjoying the electric fireplace with the flame only feature or kick on the heat feature to take the chill out of the room.

Turn in for the night in a super comfy, Memory Foam King sized mattress and enjoy a 'free' streamed movie to your own 42” LED Smart TV.

This home will meet your every want and need for your dream vacation. From its restored, historic Terrazzo flooring, to all new Hurricane windows that offer unbelievable sound proofing from outside noise and traffic. We were told they would help block noise but it is way better than we could even imagine.

With all of our modern updates, comfy furnishings and features like our large, fully maintained yard, you will be glad you choose to call this your home, if only for a month.

Please read all of the features of this home…

THE CALENDAR & RATES ARE ALWAYS UP TO DATE.

Please Take Note:
Our Minimum Stay is by the entire month only.

Car: Recommended

You step back in time when you enter the Island. Things just go slower there and our home fits right in that state of mind. Yet when you want the shopping or dinning just buzz off the Island and it is all within minutes. All the while knowing you are a stone’s throw from the Gulf Life!

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We have been coming to Florida for a month each year and fell in love with the Venice area and decided to buy a place of our own. Our search was a yearlong journey to find just the right property, but it was totally worth it. We found the vacation home of our dreams... well envisioned it and after three months of painstaking work to make it just right. Along with our main 'Must Haves’ of being a 10 minute walk to the beach and less than 8 minutes to downtown with all of its shops and restaurants, it is truly our vacation 'Dream Home'. We also have a second home located on our main home site in Northern Michigan, on Burt Lake. (Burt Lake Guest House HomeAway.com listing 359846) Look at this link to if you have plans to visit Northern Michigan, 'God’s Country' plus note we have many happy people that enjoy our properties. We make things the way we would like them for our guest to enjoy as much as we do.
