Year Purchased: 2012

About: David and Barley Van Clief have worked hard to make this home into a peaceful oasis, investing time, energy, money and creativity - not to mention an enormous amount of sweat equity. Having traveled the world, they are uniquely qualified to know what amenities people look for when they are away from home. You will feel welcome the instant you walk through the front door.

Why Venice Gardens:
If you are looking for convenience, this home is centrally located in a serene environment, and yet, just minutes from everything Venice has to offer. We take pride in making sure the home is spotlessly clean for your arrival, and there is a local property manager to tend to any issues that may arise during your stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Even the most highly rated hotel cannot provide you the space and comforts of home that this beautiful home has to offer. You may not be interested in spending time in the kitchen while on holiday or vacation, but should you wish to prepare that fresh seafood dinner, you'll find everything you need from appliances to utensils, as well as enough dinnerware and flatware to host a small dinner party. We also provide a gas grill for you to barbecue your favorite foods and you can enjoy them in our semi-open air dining area adjacent to the swimming pool. Yet, if you choose to dine out, you will find every style of eatery you could possibly be looking for, whether it's a quick bite at a fast food restaurant, a leisurely lunch at Sharkey's on the Pier, or a relaxed dinner at a nearby fine restaurant, you are only minutes away from your desires. Want to stay in? Relax by or in our inviting screened in pool and lanai, or spend some time with the game table in our Florida sitting room, catch your favorite TV shows in our warm living room or perhaps as you relax in the Master Suite. This house simply has it all.
