Property description

Beautiful 2Bed/2Bath South Venice home with gorgeous private saltwater heated pool and spa!

Bask in the sunshine on South Venice's private beach, (reachable only by a private 20 passenger ferry) or splash in the clear blue Gulf waters at one of the several nearby beaches. Venice, Florida is the shark-tooth capital of the world, and many beachcombers find these hidden gems while strolling along the water's edge. Chairs, towels, umbrella, cooler and sand toys are provided for you with this rental!

Our vacation home is close to shopping, dining, boating, fishing, hiking and golf. Downtown Venice, a palm tree lined village with quaint shops and many fine restaurants, is only a short 10 minute drive.

A beautiful screened lanai with heated pool/hot tub spa offers refreshing relaxation after a day of sightseeing or beach-bumming. An outdoor grill and dining table (seats 8) is perfect for those nights you'd prefer to stay at home.

The fully equipped kitchen has absolutely everything you'll need, and overlooks the pool from the double french doors.

Our comfortable open living room is equipped with 42'TV and sleeper sofa.
Free WiFi is provided for our guests.

Both the master bedroom and guestroom are furnished with comfortable queen sized beds. The living room sofa pulls out for additional guests. There are 2 full nicely decorated baths.

The 2 car garage is supplied with a washer/dryer, beach equipment, two bicycles and kayaks.

Property managers are a simple phone call away for anything additional you might need!!

What to do during your stay in Venice?

The shark tooth capital of the world, Venice, Florida, is known for its spectacular shoreline. Stroll down Venice Avenue with its pink, Italian Renaissance buildings, Mediterranean-style shops and 'umbrella-topped' Canary Island date palms.

1. THE VENETIAN WATERWAY TRAIL & THE LEGACY TRAIL: Venice is fortunate in that we have TWO incredible paved walkways for walkers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, and all other outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy! The Venetian Waterway Trail runs along both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway providing a calming view of boats and dolphins making their way through the channel. The Legacy Trail, recently opened, is a rails-to-trails project that links Venice directly to Sarasota via a paved lane through several different ecological habitats.

2. EXPLORE OUR BEACHES:

You've seen one beach, you've seen them all? Oh no, not here in Venice! Each of our public beaches features its own distinct personality! Check out Casperson Beach at the far end of Harbor Drive for excellent sharkstooth hunting and enjoy the pavilions and playground that are located on the edge of Red Lake. Brohard Beach is our local Paw Park where you can bring your four-legged friends for a romp in the surf! Venice Beach is located directly at the end of Venice Ave. W. Don't miss trying a locally famous 'Jetty Dog' at Venice's South Jetty while watching the surfers (if the waves are good). North Jetty Park also has a walkable jetty suitable for fishing or just watching a sunset. The newly renovated pavilion at Nokomis Beach, along with its access to the Intracoastal is also a favorite of locals!

3. FISHING:

The Venice Fishing Pier is located at Brohard Park on the south end of the island of Venice, and is owned by the City of Venice. The 700-foot Pier is a great location for fishing and to end the day watching a beautiful sunset. Connected to Sharky's on the Pier, the only beachfront restaurant in the Venice area, the Pier offers Papa's Bait Shop, with live & frozen bait, coffee, treats, jackets, shirts, and more. Nearby are six picnic shelters, two sand volleyball courts, and public restrooms with showers. Open at all times. There is no fee to access the Pier and avid and amateur fisherman of all ages can fish from the Pier without a fishing license.

4. SHOPPING & DINING

Crossing one of Venice's bridges to the historic downtown area, known as 'The Island of Venice', instantly transports you Downtown Veniceto 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.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Excellent location. Only a short distance to walking trails along the inter-coastal waterway, parks, beaches and boat launches. A 30 minute drive to beautiful Sarasota where you'll find parks, gardens, art, great restaurants and shopping galore. Tampa's Busch Gardens is a fantastic way to spend the day, and only an hour drive from this home. Planning on seeing one of the many theme parks while you're in Florida? Orlando is a 2 hour drive from this home - so, spend the day at Disney and then return to the calm and relaxation of your own private retreat in Venice!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The outdoor space (pool/spa area) is gorgeous! You feel like you're on vacation every day - even when you're just staying home!
