About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
At this beautiful coastal community, you will find perhaps the most relaxing beach and well-equipped condominium in the area. We have taken great care to provide you with everything you will need during your stay. We are focused on providing you with a superior rental experience, beginning with a comfortable and clean property, premium furnishings and household items, and unique added features that you will not find with most other properties in this price range, including free use of bicycles and golf clubs, among other things.
In fact, if there is something that you think would make your stay more comfortable, please contact us with your suggestion. We will make every attempt to provide these for you (within reason).
We have been renting our condo for only a few years, but we are convinced that our philosophy works. We believe strongly that a highly satisfied rental client is very likely to be a repeat customer. In return, we expect that a customer intending to re-book is also very likely to take care of the property in the same manner that they would care for their own home. In this way, we both win.
Take a look at my website for more details. (See the link just above the photo section below.)

Putting Green on Premises
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We lived in Michigan for 25 years while working in the auto industry. A vacation condo in Florida had been a dream that we were finally able to achieve in 2005. We visited over Christmas, Spring Break and any other chances we could find, and we offered it for occasional rentals to help defray the expense. However, with the downturn in the auto industry, we moved to California and have few opportunities to travel to Florida to enjoy our condo. Not wanting to part with it for various reasons, we have decided to expand our rental window and keep it with the hopes of a not-too-distant retirement.
Why the Owner Chose Venice, FL, USA:
When we began looking for a place to buy, the primary goal was to find a quiet place where we could get a suntan on the beach at Christmas. We searched almost the entire Gulf Coast south of Tampa (south of the Frost Line) looking for the right community. Most of what we found were over-developed or high-rise properties in congested locations. The Island of Venice appealed to us because there are no busy roads to contend with, and it has a quaint, walkable, downtown area where you can browse the stores, see live entertainment, or grab an ice cream. It is a completely relaxed town, free of high-speed bustle and high-dollar pressure of many of the other South Gulf Coast communities. Once we settled on Venice, we searched the entire beachfront that we felt was within walking distance of downtown. With this criteria, the Aldea Mar condo community was easily the best fit for us. Although I am admittedly biased, I believe you will find Aldea Mar to be the nicest place anywhere in the area. The combination of open spaces, well-cared for land and property, accessible & swimmable beachfront, and overall peacefulness are what attracted us. The grounds are spacious, with meandering paths through the well-maintained property that even has a manicured putting green. No buildings are over two stories high, and there was an instant sense of belonging as neighbors were very friendly. It is an established community with mature trees and a charming village layout surrounding the community facilities which include a swimming pool, shuffleboard, activity center, putting green, and beach cabana. You will not feel the pressure of multi-lane traffic, high rise congestion, nor pretentious developments, and that escape was exactly what we were looking for. It was an easy choice.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The community organizes clubhouse mixers, putting tournaments, exercise classes, and gardening groups among other activities. There is even an informal nightly gathering to share a cocktail and a conversation in the cabana while watching the sun set over the gulf. There really are very few places like this.
