Private Homes house description

Breezy Villa is a comfortable one story open floor plan 2 bedroom split single family home located only minutes away from popular Sharky`s restaurant (and the newly opened Fin's), the Venice Fishing Pier and four blocks from the beach. It features two bedrooms and two baths with a new porcelain tile floor.

Breezy Villa has a split floor plan with each bedroom separated by the living room with their own private baths. Provided are many amenities to make your vacation relaxing, including beach chairs, umbrella, shark's tooth strainer, beach toys and two beach cruiser bicycles.

We are the owners of this home and respond to *every* inquiry within hours. Why deal with 'managers' when you can deal with someone who takes pride in the home that they own?

Proximity to the Gulf of Mexico brings almost constant breezes to this adorable villa. Throw open all the windows and the double French doors and enjoy the fresh ocean air!

Visit beautiful Venice Island only 3 minutes north. Shop, eat and enjoy the many wonderful activities only minutes away, including the Venice Rookery where you can see Bald Eagles and other exotic large birds, the Dome Flea Market, the weekly Venice Farmer's Market, Warm Mineral Springs (just re-opened in March 2014) or travel 20 minutes north to Sarasota for the Mote Marine Aquarium or Myakka River Park where you can see alligators in their natural habitat from an air boat.

Venice,Florida is known as the 'Shark's Tooth Capital of the World' and your vacation paradise is only four blocks to a ferry which will take you on a four minute trip to Manasota Key (passes provided) or you are minutes from Caspersen Beach where you can scoop shark's teeth right out of the shallows. Don't worry, these teeth aren't new, they're prehistoric.

On one side of Breezy Villa is the master suite with double doors that close creating a three-room cozy and private retreat from the rest of the home. The master bedroom features a comfortable queen size bed and a walk-in closet with plenty of room for your clothes. The master bathroom has a bath tub and shower. Feel extra pampered after your shower with the plush spa towels and waffle cotton spa robe provided for you during your stay.

The third space is a separate office area with a full length desk. Close the master bedroom door, throw your laptop on the desk and surf with high speed wireless Internet with no worries about disturbing someone sleeping.

The second bedroom includes a queen sized bed and a roomy closet for all of those new “Shark's Tooth Capital” t-shirts. It also boasts its own bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Also offered are two Simmons DreamSleep folding twin beds with very comfy memory foam mattresses.

The living room lets you sit back and relax between all of that hard work of laying on the beach and features a 39” LED HD TV with loads of HD channels and a DVR for recording your favorite shows while you are out, wireless Internet access (WiFi). Also included is an Internet cordless telephone (Vonage) which features free unlimited local and national calling in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico as well as to 70 countries. No need to worry about cell phone charges or signal coverage with your cell phone!

In the dining room, throw open the French doors and let the breeze pour in as you enjoy a little coffee or tea at the shaded patio table. The back patio invites you to cook on the propane grill and dine outside while enjoying the Florida sunshine or comfortable nights under the palm trees while being serenaded by tree frogs and crickets. Relax there and watch your kids or pets play in the fenced yard, chasing the cute little geckos.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, gadgets and updated appliances – including dishwasher. Also included are basic spices, coffee and sugar to get you started.

Next to the kitchen is a full laundry room with washer and dryer for drying those wet bathing suits, washing those towels you were sitting on at the beach or getting your clothes cleaned of one adventure and ready for the next.

Breezy Villa has ceiling fans throughout as well as central air and heating. Also for your convenience is a roomy garage with inside entrance to the house and an automatic garage door opener is provided for your use.

The back yard is fully fenced so no need to have to walk the dog several times a day - although you probably won't mind strolling around the lovely quiet neighborhood.

One feature which we believe sets our property apart from many others is that we change the locks after every guest and the lock box code you are given to access the house is individualized and never the same. There are no cleaning people or contractors who will have a key to the house. As the property owners, we respect your privacy and value your security.

Venice is a very beautiful and laid back city and you're sure to meet other friendly people biking and walking as you take a stroll or walk your dog. The local area has several dog parks and dog beaches where your pooch can run free.

**** We can accommodate last minute reservations! ****

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My significant other Dan and I live in Venice so we can take care of any issues with the house ourselves. We visited the area in December 2011 from Pennsylvania and during our stay we decided to move here and have never looked back. For more information visit us at http://veniceflvacation.com

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We chose this property for a vacation rental business because of it's proximity to beaches and quiet residential neighborhoods.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You can ride bikes, drive or walk to the nearby South Venice Beach Ferry which takes you to a private beach for the South Venice Community. No need to park your car and carry your beach gear for several blocks. Beach ferry pass is provided with your stay. The area also enjoys a nearly constant breeze because of its proximity to the water, which keeps the bugs away.
