Aldea Mar condo description

Aldea Mar is located on approximately 11 acres of lush tropical vegetation directly on the Gulf of Mexico. The community of Aldea Mar (village by the sea) is ideally situated on Venice Island close to town yet far enough away for solitude and relaxation. The Aldea Mar property is unique in that the private beach is only a very short walk from the front door, the large heated swimming pool is even closer and the oversized putting green is just a block away. Shuffleboard is also available on site as well as a large clubhouse for scheduled activities and private parties. Our unit is in the perfect location situated just steps from the beach. Everything is close yet the location is very quiet. There is easy access from parking in the covered carport to the unit as well as to the many amenities that Aldea Mar offers. Our two bedroom unit will sleep 6 with plenty of room to entertain guests. Flat screen TVs are in the bedrooms and living room (basic cable included) and the tastefully decorated living room will give you a fresh feel for the Florida gulf coast. There is a full kitchen with upgraded appliances and granite countertops as well as a stackable washer and dryer for your use. High speed wireless internet is provided. We have fishing poles, beach chairs/towels and putters (for weekly putting events with your neighbors) for your use. Rentals are monthly but we can rent for a shorter period of time during the off season. Our home is renter ready with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Need a bike? We have those (4) too!

                      Crossing one of Venice's bridges to the historic downtown area, known as 'The Island of Venice', instantly transports you to a place of unparalleled charm

                      where palm tree lined avenues host an endless array of exciting things to do and see. You’re sure to find a shop or boutique to satisfy your style out of the 100+ unique shops, salons, and other businesses along the Island Avenues of Venice. If dining is your idea of excitement, your palate will be especially pleased. With many sidewalk cafes and several picturesque waterfront restaurants, Venice offers a total dining experience that is truly second to none.

                      The town of Venice is known as the Sharks Tooth Capital. Venice Beach is located about half way down the left side (Gulf side) of the state’s peninsula and it has a coral reef just offshore.

                      Finding pre-historic shark’s teeth seems to be easy to do along this beach! Divers, snorkelers and beachcombers are all able to find various types of teeth that have been washed up from an exposed offshore fossil layer from 2 to 25 million years ago (Miocene). And if you become a shark tooth enthusiast, you’ll be eager to learn what type of tooth you have and which shark it came from. Collecting prehistoric sharks teeth has been a favorite pastime of visitors and residents of the Venice area for decades. They may be black, brown, or gray, depending on the minerals in the soil in which they have been buried. They range in size from one eighth inch to three inches, and on rare occasions more than 6 inches. The Megalodon ('Big Tooth') was an enormous shark – up to 60 feet long – now extinct, but his large teeth can range from tens to hundreds to thousands of $$$!


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: Our condo is a focal point of our family get-togethers. While not native to the area, we have been Floridians for 20 years and we love the beach!

                      Why the Owner Chose Aldea Mar:
                      My wife and I fell in love with the quiet charm of Venice several years ago. We have been renters ourselves in the area and decided to take the plunge and fuel our passion for the beach, scuba, and shark tooth diving. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do. It's our favorite home away from home and we hope it will become yours.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Golden beach where Aldea Mar is located is the nicest private beach area on the island of Venice. The property gives you that secluded island/beach feel while being only minutes away to downtown and other amenities in the area.
