Property description

Our spacious Villa Grande home is located just minutes away from the popular Sharky's restaurant, downtown Venice and several fabulous *free* beaches.

A single story villa, it is fully updated with tile floors throughout and features a split design separating the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Many amenities are provided to make your vacation relaxing, including beach chairs, pool noodles, beach umbrella, beach towels, beach toys, shark's tooth strainer and two beach cruiser bicycles with front baskets.

Visit beautiful Venice Island. Shop, eat and enjoy the sunny Florida scenery. Venice, Florida is known as the 'Shark's Tooth Capital of the World' and your vacation paradise is only 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.

One side of Villa Grande features the master bedroom boasting a king size bed and a walk-in closet with plenty of room for your clothes. The master bathroom has a tub, shower, towel closet and plenty of counter space on the vanity. Feel extra pampered with the plush spa towels and spa robes provided for you during your stay.

On the other side of the home, a pocket door gives the second bedroom its own living area with access to a full second bathroom. The bedroom includes a queen size bed and a roomy closet for all of those new 'Shark's Tooth Capital' t-shirts. The second bathroom has a spacious vanity top, large mirror and a large walk-in shower.

Also offered is one fold-out Simmons DreamSleep twin bed with very comfy memory foam mattress and a roomy full mattress sized sofa bed in the Florida room.

The kitchen features a breakfast bar and is fully stocked with pots, pans, gadgets and updated appliances - including dishwasher. We also stock spices, coffee, salt, pepper, sugar and other basics that you don't have to buy at the store. We provide paper towels, toilet paper, laundry soap, dishwasher soap and some sample sizes of toothpaste, mouthwash etc so the only thing you need to shop for is perishable food that you'd like to cook at home.

Sit back and relax after a day on the beach in the Living Room, which features a 39 inch flat screen TV, Verizon FIOS HD TV and high speed wireless Internet access (WiFi). Telephones feature free unlimited local and national calling in the US.

Throw open the French door and let the breeze pour in as you enjoy a little coffee or tea. Dine outside while enjoying the Florida sunshine under the palm trees while your kids or pets play in the fenced yard.

The garage is attached and includes automatic door control and full size 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.

Villa Grande has ceiling fans throughout as well as central air and heating. Nearby is a heated outdoor Olympic pool at the Venice YMCA which has great daily, weekly or monthly rates to use the entire facility.

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 the Legacy Trail and walking as you take a stroll or walk your dog. The local area has several dog parks and Brohard Paw Park Dog Beach where your pooch can run free.

Included with your stay is a pass to the South Venice Beach Ferry. Experience nostalgic 'Old Florida' as you take a 4 minute ride on the ferry to the beach which is only accessible to people with ferry passes. The beach ferry has turned out to be a favorite with our guests!

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.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We chose this house to offer as a seasonal rental because it is conveniently located yet also in a quiet residential neighborhood. We added a privacy fence to the spacious back yard and changed the flooring to ceramic tile so that we can accommodate travelers with their pets.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
House is on a spacious corner lot with a tropical garden feel. Back yard is completely privacy fenced. Floor plan is open and spacious feeling.
