Property description

Our Venice Florida vacation rental has over 1,800 square feet on a 1/4-acre lot with a pool, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, privacy fencing, and is only 100 steps to the beach. Our beach access shown to the left says it all! It's the perfect choice for your Venice Florida holiday. Enjoy the charming small-town lifestyle of the Island of Venice FL in this beach cottage. Walk a few steps to the beautiful Venice beach and watch the waves roll in, the seabirds swoop and dive, and another beautiful sunset. Relax in the privacy of your own pool amidst a lush tropical garden of palm trees and flowering plants. Pick some fresh citrus or mangoes for your breakfast enjoyment.

While you'll probably be spending much of your time on the fantastic Venice beach on the Gulf of Mexico that's just steps away or in the private pool, we've outfitted our Venice Island rental home with a variety of entertainment options for our guests. The living room has a bookcase which we've filled with approximately 100 movies on DVD to suit all tastes and age ranges, from classics to newer releases. The second bedroom has a large bookcase which we've filled with a range of non-fiction and fiction books, from sci-fi to suspense to easy beach reads. And the game room offers a selection of board games, puzzles, and cards for that old-time play night or high-stakes poker.

Of course, cable TV is provided - dozens of channels and HBO. And there's high-speed cable and wireless internet access for checking emails, searching the internet, and staying in touch with the office. Most of the furniture in our Venice Florida vacation rental is newer and has a tropical flair. Living room/lounge seating is a large 3-seat couch and 2 leather chairs with an ottoman. The dining room has an oversized table with 6 chairs.

The combination game room and office has 3 walls of windows overlooking the tropical landscaped yard and a sliding door that can be used to close it off from the rest of the house for privacy. It has a table with 4 chairs ideal for playing cards or games. The office setup is an oversized wood table, leather executive chair, internet access, and an all-in-one printer/fax (available on request) so you can truly be productive. The kitchen is fully equipped and a joy to work in with its custom cabinets and granite countertops. And the gas stove/oven means meals or leftover pizza are heated up quickly. Linens, pillows and mattress pads are all new for 2014. Sheets are high-thread count with a silky feel. Choose from an assortment of feather/down, memory foam, and filled pillows for your night-time comfort. All the beds are newer and extremely comfortable and will give you a good night's rest. The master bedroom has a (brand new in 2014) king size bed with a 13' gel memory foam pressure-point-relieving mattress and a master/en-suite bath with shower. The second bedroom has a queen size memory foam bed. The third bedroom has a twin bed. The guest bath has a tub/shower combination.

Outdoors, our Venice beach rental house has a lot to offer. The huge 1500 sq ft screened-in lanai includes a beautiful 16x36 in-ground pool and a patio area that's made for enjoying the Venice Florida lifestyle. And your outdoor time is very private thanks to the surrounding privacy fence. There's a gas grill for barbecuing. There's a big outdoor dining table with oversized market umbrella and 6 swivel rocker chairs. Sunbathing, reading, and snoozing are all aided by 2 chaise lounges. Our outdoor furniture is unbelievably comfy. And the gorgeous yard is filled with palms and flowers and fruit trees that will probably be bearing fruit on your visit.

There are many fine restaurants in the area, but for those times when you want to dine in, we have an herb garden that you can draw on to flavor your culinary creations. Our Venice Florida rental beach house is a 1-minute walk to our beach access and a few minutes walk to downtown Venice. You'll enjoy walking the 6 miles of Venice beach looking for shells or shark's teeth, enjoying the sound of the waves lapping at the shore, or watching the seabirds as they soar in the air or scamper along the beach. For a different venue, you might enjoy walking or biking along the Intracoastal Waterway, with access about a mile away. Come enjoy the Venice Island Florida lifestyle!
