Property description

Pulling into the neat driveway, you’ll arrive at your perfect Venice vacation home. A clean, tidy and inviting ranch-style property in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. This vacation home is a family owned and used getaway and the owners are looking only for caring tenants to share in the use of their retreat. Our Baycrest home is a wonderful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house located at 424 Baycrest Drive next to beautiful multi million dollar homes and is located in luxurious Venice Island. This home is very roomy and can comfortably accommodate eight guests.

This home has been refreshingly revitalized with new furnishings, new flooring, updated landscaping, new doors and hardware and has been freshly painted. The home continually grows in it’s appointments and is currently in design for updated landscape features over the entire property.

While at Baycrest you can relax in a large heated private saltwater pool that has a partial view of Roberts Bay. Surrounding the pool is a lanai that allows you to enjoy your evenings in a peaceful and insect free environment. Within the lanai you will find clean and comfortable living space with a dining table and chairs as well as a bistro table and four chairs. Adjacent to the pool is a covered porch for you to relax out of the sun or enjoy your meals outdoors in a very serene setting. The outdoor dining area is accessible from both the living and dining areas via sliding glass doors. Access from the living area is especially beautiful as the sliding doors pocket into the exterior wall wonderfully extending your living space.

The delightful bright kitchen is functional and has ample entertainment space. Modern appliances make for happy cooking, yet the quality is a cut above what you’d typically find in a vacation rental.

Vacationers will love the freedom of this home’s location. Just four blocks from charming and historic downtown Venice, you can safely walk along quiet roads to explore coffee shops, boutiques and treat yourselves to an ice cream. Just as close, five blocks away, is the gorgeous white sand of Venice Beach and lively Venice Pier. ??New bedroom furniture includes lovely storage options, as well as a massive king-sized bed and TV. Bedrooms one and two offer a queen bed and queen over queen bunk bed respectively.

While staying in Venice, days might include hunting for sharks’ teeth on breathtaking local beaches, watching dolphins play just offshore - and even spotting manatees and wild parrots. Water-sports are available nearby and rental outfitters are plentiful. Enjoy days or weeks of boating, sailing, snorkeling or just happy paddling by the shore. The balmy gulf waters leave you with no excuse but to hit the surf.

While we enjoy pets ourselves we have made a choice to exclude pets from our vacation home.
