Farmington Vistas condo description
Handsomely furnished 1st floor condominium overlooks the fifth green of one of two championship (an LPGA qualifier has been played here for the last 18 years) golf courses with a beautiful swimming pool solely for the condo residents.
Monthly rentals include social membership at the Plantation Golf and Country Club, which gains you access to the Club's outstanding dining room, lounge and terrace, special events, activities, junior Olympic pool, whirlpool, state-of-the-art fitness center and group classes. You may also play two 18-hole or four 9-hole rounds of golf per month and four rounds of tennis per month (fees additional).
The tranquility and natural beauty of the area makes for an ideal vacation or extended stay. Some of Florida’s best beaches are a mere 12 minute drive. There are more than 10 public or semi-private golf courses within 8 miles. Fishing, boating, biking and birding, there is plenty to offer the active outdoors enthusiast. Shopping and dining in Venice are also top-notch.
This ground floor unit allows easy access without any stairs or elevators. It is also an end unit with large Bahama shutters that allow more air and light into the master suite with views of lush tropical plants. Drapes can be drawn to provide night-time privacy. Parking is available for one vehicle under the detached carport with additional off-street parking for guests.
The convenient galley kitchen is fully equipped with electric ceramic cooktop and oven, refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and toaster as well as dishes, cutlery, glassware, table linens, pots, pans and utensils. A closet pantry provides ample storage for infrequently used appliances and your personal provisions.
The bright and airy master bedroom has a king size bed, walk-in wardrobe, cable television, en-suite bath with walk-in shower and two separate vanities. Sliding glass doors from the master bedroom enter onto the screened lanai. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and large wardrobe closet; the adjacent bath has a full tub.
The laundry room with stackable washer and dryer is off the master bedroom. Linens, bath and beach towels are supplied. The main living room has sliding glass doors which open onto a tiled and screened lanai overlooking the golf course.
The screened and tiled lanai is west-facing and has outdoor seating for dining al fresco and watching sunsets. This first floor condo also has a private patio and pergola with tropical plantings that invite you to walk outside.
The Farmington Vistas community heated pool and clubhouse are a mere 50 steps away and free for your use. Community barbecue grills and Wi-Fi are available at the clubhouse. A small library can extend your reading.

Place was perfect. We had everything we needed. Owners Jennifer and Scott answered all my questions. Place was fantastic. Covered parking, internet and free phone (everything worked). Clean and tastefully furnished. Was wonderful being on the ground floor. The lania was great for morning coffee and watching the golfers. An added bonus was outside the lania there is another area to sit, for people like me who love the sun! Great unit. Would recommend. We will come back again this summer. Thank you for a great stay.

Owner response: Linda, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and found everything to your satisfaction. We pride ourselves in making our condo as clean and comfortable as possible, so you spend time relaxing and enjoying your stay. We really hope you do return; you will find we have made more improvements including new flat screen tv's, new full-size washer and dryer and a renovated guest room. And you are so right -- having that little extra space to sit outside on our private patio is a real treat. I watched great horned owls and a pileated woodpecker at Christmas!
Everything you could need is in this condo. Great place to relax, very quiet area on golf course and convenient to Venice beaches, many sites and restaurants, especially Pop's Bar & Grill. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return again.

Comfortable home away from home

This was the perfect place for me to use as a base while I researched the area for permanent housing. The owners have taken extra care to make sure their renters lack for none of the smaller amenities........coffee filters, extra soaps, well-equipped kitchen, tissues; things one might not think about when provisioning. And having a land line was so helpful, since there is no Sprint reception. Very pleasant stay, and very pleasant owners.

Owner response: We are happy that you found your new home in Venice! We know you will love it as much as we do -- it's such an active and healthy lifestyle. I'm really glad the land line phone was helpful for you; initially we debated putting it in since everyone travels with cell phones these days. But people forget to charge batteries, misplace cell phones and some carriers may have spotty reception. When you're on vacation you don't need those bothers. We strive to make our condo as carefree and comfortable for travelers and vacationers as possible. I'm glad it worked out well for you.
Immaculately maintained condo, excellent location, and fantastic sunsets, made for a great vacation!

Owner response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We work hard to make our condo as comfortable and easy as possible. We welcome you back anytime!
The condo was comfortable, cooking utensils were adequate, pool area was clean and well attended. Many resturants available in Venice area, The condo had no internet or WI-FI which made it difficult to use laptop, unable to reach pool house site due to building blocking signal. Was able to connect to a local site for a while but made sure you have your equipment software well protected. Talked to owner and gave a couple of suggestion for the condo improvement. The telephone USA and Canada was good to keep in touch with family in both countries.

Beautifully decorated. Ideal location within the Plantation community - across the street from the pool and activity center. Property is approx. 20 - 25 minutes from beautiful Gulf beaches and quaint downtown Venice. You are also 5-10 minutes from large shopping center with grocery stores. This community is very friendly to newcomers.

About the owner: We are from the mountains of New Hampshire. We enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, boating and golf. We also love to travel and have found that Venice and the Gulf Coast of Florida are as nice as any place we have visited. When we're home, we love gardening and 'yardening.' We look forward to retiring one of these years at Plantation Golf & Country Club.
Why the Owner Chose Farmington Vistas:
The beautiful Gulf Coast sunsets, endless beaches, and friendly sunny people make you feel right at home. It is easy to lead a healthy and active lifestyle year round. We are also avid birders and have really enjoyed the incredible bird and wild life in the area. Getting to Venice is easy with access to either Sarasota (SRQ) or Fort Myers (RSW) airports.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love sitting on both the lanai and outdoor patio, sipping our morning coffee and tea, with gentle breezes in the palms and pines. Sandhill cranes occasionally stroll by as golfers work their way up the Bobcat course. We both love to walk over to the pool for an easy dip in the morning or after a day on the course. Sublime!
