Shelling and finding Shark's teeth on the beach!!!!
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: June and I cannot spend as much time in our piece of paradise as we would like so it is available to rent. We are Scottish and speak English and German.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We are hobby pilots and have flown in many parts of the world including most of the USA. When we first visited Venice we fell in love with it and decided to buy a place there.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Venice offers the perfect compromise with fabulous beaches and the relaxed living style of the Gulf Coast while still being in easy reach of the entertainment in Orlando and Tampa and everything they have to offer. Unlike some areas on the Gulf Coast there is easy access to all of your shopping needs but the house is located in its own little piece of paradise as the pictures show!
