Island of Venice house description

On a sunny island with a nearby beach, you’ll sleep comfortably in the heart of Venice Island, FL. Just three blocks from the Gulf of Mexico, we offer guests exclusive, deeded access to a private beach.

Charming is the perfect word to describe this Ruth Richmond home nestled on a quiet street on the Island of Venice. Lovingly maintained with a passion about everything to do with landscaping and the property shows it. Guests with laptops will appreciate the convenience of high-speed Internet, and all will enjoy the flat screen TV with cable and HDTV and lots of DVD's.

Though perfectly placed between beach and town, you can sit in this vacation home’s private backyard and enjoy time utterly to yourself. Flowering trees and lush landscaping make it a welcoming haven, whether for reading a book or enjoying sea breezes on the covered patio.

The peaceful lanai with large sliding doors that slip out of sight will make that morning coffee or evening beverage that much more enjoyable as you embrace the peace and privacy of your back yard.

Enjoy both sides of Florida life in Venice - the picture-postcard beach vacation with gorgeous sunsets and a warm sense of genuine community in the nearby town. The charming town of Venice offers find coffee shops, seafood restaurants and great window shopping. Venice Beach and the famous Venice landmark Sharkey’s on the Pier are both within walking or biking distance of this home.

The Venice Theater sparkles with frequent plays, shows and musical reviews.

If exploring is your thing, you'll love Venice's beaches with miles of white sand offering plenty of opportunities to swim, fish, walk and search for shells and Venice's famous shark's teeth.

Nearby is the Legacy Trail, a 20 mile recreational trail for bikers, joggers and walkers.

Pets are welcome and for their pleasure there is a Pet Beach Park just down the street past the Sharky's. Enjoy ocean views while dining and take an after-dinner walk along the pier extending into the Gulf of Mexico.

Other close amenities are golfing at the 27 hole Lake Venice Golf Club. Return from an enjoyable golf game at one of Venice’s many courses and enjoy an evening cocktail with loved ones. Walk together just a few minutes to the beach for the spectacular Gulf sunsets.

For those hobbyist there is a cute 12X8 shed on the property with electricity to power those tools and lights.

To make sure your visit is as relaxing as possible the house is equipped with plenty of beach chairs, towels, a cooler, pails and shovels and umbrellas.

We live on the island just a few minute from this property. We have bicycles and helmets of various shapes and sizes for your convenience. Our goal is to make your vacation a happy one you will remember fondly and will come back to visit again!
