  • Falling Waters Condo

    "Enjoyed the condo very much....planning to go there again early '15. No highway noises, just some local slow-paced cars/delivery vans. Quiet neighbors. Close to pool so car or bikes not needed for that. Since it's an upstairs unit it has an unobstructed overlook both from the front as well as the back lanais. Easy access to downtown via the close-by Davis Blvd. Unit was clean and in good condition, towels/blankets/sheets/many household items were provided, including hookup for internet, along with flat screen TV, local phone. Beautiful pool for all ages."

  • Fantastic place-- close to the beach

    "House is very nice and has a nice updated kitchen. The house is very nicely decorated with Mary Ellen's artwork. On this trip, we only had two adults and one 11 year old. We had tons of space. This house can easily accommodate 6-8 (using the couches to sleep). Bedrooms were comfortable and there were plenty of hangers and dresser space for clothes. Kitchen is very well stocked. We cooked in the kitchen every day-- except our day of arrival. It's always harder to cook in someone else's kitchen-- when you are used to your own. My advice is to bring a few of your "must haves" if you are able to-- particularly when driving. When we drive, I usually bring a few things that I'll want to have in the kitchen. This time, I brought (1) Espresso Coffee Machine, (2) Foreman Grill, and (3) a pot for making popcorn on the stove (so I didn't risk burning one of the house pots). We found the house to be a great balance of budget and location. It is cheaper than some places you'll find that are right on the beach. For the better price, you get being close to the beach-- instead of on the beach. The beach is 3/4 miles to the actual water. It's about a 10 minute walk to the public beach entrance (right next to entrance to Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park). It is a 2 minute drive to the beach. I recommend driving if you have gear. There is really no free parking at the public beach entrance. There is plenty of parking at the Delnor-Wiggins park for $6/day). The beaches were very nice / convenient. On one day, we ventured to Vanderbilt beach-- which is about a 10 minute drive to parking garage ($8 / day) followed by a 5 minute walk. Vanderbilt has a wider beach than Delnor-Wiggins pass and is more crowded. Both beaches are clean, well-maintained, with good facilities. I recommend researching both parks on the internet for additional details. Mary Ellen is extremely accommodating and easy to work with. You can't rent from a better owner. She obviously cares that her renters have a great experience. There are some basic, common-sense house rules that are easy to follow. The main rules were to keep sand out of the house and be careful with oil on the granite countertops. (Both of these you would do at your own house). We found the rules easy to follow. For sand, we always entered through the garage to drop off gear Then, we showed in the outdoor shower at the side of the house to rinse off any remaining sand."

  • Providence Is Heaven!

    "We have visited the Sanibel/Captiva area at least 20 times and this home was our finest experience. There were 10 of us staying in the house but we each had our own space and plenty of room. It is ideal for large groups/families. This was our first experience staying on the bay/channel side and we loved it. It was just like having our own wildlife sanctuary in our back yard - eagles, osprey, hundreds of birds, flamingoes, dolphins. Access to kayaks and bicycles provided a wonderful outlet for athletic young adults and children. They spent hours kayaking up and down the channel and biked on Captiva and on Sanibel. Fishing was fun off the dock - we used frozen shrimp purchased at the little general store - and were able to catch a number of fish - including the fish out 10 yr old granddaughter caught 5 minutes after throwing in her line. The sunrises were exquisite - I cherished the quiet time with the orange sky over the east horizon. We marveled at the incredible sky - we even saw a shooting star from the "captain's loft" as we watched the full moon rise over the channel. It was an experience you can't duplicate anywhere. The beach was wide and beautiful with wonderful soft sand - and just down the beach at an inlet were piles and piles of shells. The house provided chairs, umbrellas and lots of pool and beach toys. Pool or beach?? Tough decisions we had to make every day. Everyone loved the whole week - "our best family vacation ever!" (A quote from our granddaughters.) We will most definitely be back. Thank you Michael for the wonderful "gift" when we arrived and for providing our family the opportunity to enjoy a week in such a beautiful home. Bob & Sheri Egge"

  • Very pleasant

    "The owners were excellent to deal with. The house was fairly well equipped. It had everything I needed except a full size iron or iron board. I realize most people wouldn't need one but I tend to want to iron everything. There was a travel iron. The pool area was nice and we were happy to have the bar-b-que. The house is very spacious and it is in a great location. Very close to Siesta Beach."

Venice Travel Tips

Venice Vacation Rentals for Beach Lovers

Southwest Florida has many vacation-worthy areas to offer beach lovers. Located in Sarasota County with a perfect year-round climate, Venice is one of the nicest spots in south Florida. And Venice vacation rentals, offering privacy, extra space and amenities, make a tropical getaway even nicer.

Venice Beaches

In addition to lovely beaches, Venice is known as the shark-tooth finding capital of Florida. More fossilized sharks teeth are found here than anywhere! The beaches in southwest Florida are numerous; if you are a beach-lover, make sure you allot plenty of time for exploring.

The longest and most secluded beach in Sarasota County is Casperson Beach, which has been left in its natural state rather than being commercialized. If you love to snorkel, the Venice Municipal Beach is the place to go, with a beautiful coral reef just one mile off shore. Just a short drive from the Municipal Beach, the Service Club Park offers a quiet beach with interesting boardwalks that span saw palmettos. For a great family beach, head over to Nokomis Beach, one of the quietest beaches in Venice, offering a boat launch and calm waters. The beach at South Jetty is a popular surf spot. Meanwhile, dog lovers will appreciate the friendliest dog park in the state: Brohard Paw Park on Harbor Drive South. Just up the coast are Tampa Bay's beaches.

Planning Your Venice Vacation—Southwest Florida Beach Rentals

When you start planning your vacation, look into Southwest Florida beach rentals, with extra amenities that make a vacation truly more enjoyable. Also look into Venice condos, another affordable option. Instead of renting a cramped hotel room, vacation in style! Venice vacation rentals provide features that hotels do not such as a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, or private pool, Jacuzzi, and personal chef service.
