Other Venice Properties house description
Prepare yourselves for an unforgettable romantic getaway or memorable family vacation in this Key West style Architecture stilt home. Home is backed by a creek and is situated amongst palm trees and tall mature oaks draped with Spanish moss giving you the illusion of being high up in a 'tree house.' This home has far more to offer though than any tree house. From the moment you enter the home you have a sense of tranquility and peace. Several rooftop windows fill the open and airy living/dining and kitchen area with natural bright light. The comfortable living room gives opportunity for a warm fire while French doors open to a sunken hot tub for an evening of well-deserved relaxation. The master bedroom features its own en-suite bathroom complete with walk-in shower. For your privacy and convenience the master bedroom opens onto the hot tub deck. The hot tub can be enjoyed in any type of weather as it is under roof and screened-in for comfort. The living room also opens to another covered and screened deck complete with comfortable furniture for total relaxation and a beautiful view of nature from high in trees. You may find yourself engaged in a good book here with the beautiful landscape view and soothing breeze. The guest bedroom with queen bed also has French doors that open out to this sitting area. The full size and fully-equipped kitchen is ready to meet any needs for those that want to enjoy a quiet meal at home after returning from the beach or a big breakfast before setting out for the day. The dining area comfortably seats four around a round table with ability to seat more. If you are traveling with the kids they will have a great time sleeping in the loft which overlooks the living/dining area. This type of home you would expect to find on the beach, but it is just minutes from several beaches with our neighborhood private beach being less than three miles away.
The location of this home also offers convenience to Historic Downtown Venice for shopping, unique dining, and entertainment as well as several more beaches. Groceries, daily shopping needs, and several chain restaurants are also within three miles. While vacationing in our gulf-front community you may also enjoy fishing, boating, canoeing/kayaking, and other water sports. Venice has several miles of paved biking and walking paths within three miles. The closest follows along Alligator Creek that runs along the backyard of the home. And let’s not forget several beautiful golf courses for those golfers! Bring the sunscreen! Venice and this tranquil home await you.

TRUE FLORIDA HOME
TRUE FLORIDA HOME
This house was beyond our expectations! Both sides are open to the outside (screened) with the palms, the birds, and ocean breezes right in your space. Oh, how we miss it! We spent our days shelling, fishing, and finding many shark's teeth. The natural private beach is so beautiful, and uncrowded. We also enjoyed lounging by the estuary behind the house. Interestingly, it told us when the tide was in or out. Everything there is so clean, comfortable, and peaceful. Supplies for a fun, carefree getaway are abundant. We have definitely found our special Florida place. ,

WOW!!! Great vacation home!!!
WOW!!! Great vacation home!!!
What a place to vacation!! Our only problem was trying to decide whether to lounge around this wonderfully unique home, or go to the wonderful secluded "ferry beach"!! We loved being at both!!! We brought our three children, ages 12, 14, & 16. There was ample space for us all!! They were truly in paradise!! This key west style home had great movies, games, boards and toys for the beach, not to mention the five bikes!! The beach decor made us feel we were right on the surf..We'll be back next year for sure!! We also really enjoyed the private back yard for our family dinners at night and the hot tub!!!

Why Other Venice Properties:
We are your average retired couple who ventured south from Colorado to discover what some were calling 'Paradise'. We were looking for a tropical 'hang-loose' relaxed kinda place with gorgeous beaches and lots of fishing holes. When we experienced Venice, we knew we were there! It had all the above and much, much more. Besides our private beach we have access (very short driving time) to many more. We have unreal shelling, fishing, boating, swimming, and just exploring all the places on and around these wonderful beaches. Yes, you can surf on the 'Sunshine Coast'. We discovered the 'in-spot' with nice waves. Then there is downtown Venice....Oh, what a beautiful shopping paradise! We are near unique 'old Florida' restaurants, small restaurants, chain, and sidewalk cafes - which we love. We are also near a movie theatre and a variety of churches. There is something fun and entertaining to do every night of the week - from music and dancing at the beach pavillion, to drumming down of the sunset. Something for every taste. The minute we walked into this house and heard the breeze blowing through all those tropical palms, and experienced the natural light filtering through the celestial windows high above, we knew this was the haven we wanted to spend our time away from home in. Yes, we found our almost paradise in Venice Florida....and we think you will too!
