Bedrooms 1

Property type condo

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Our studio condo located on Golden Beach in Venice, FL has just finished a complete remodel. Everything has been updated floor to ceiling, including voice activation for many functions. The property is on the beach and has one of the largest and deepest pools in the area. The beach is private. No hotels exist on it as far as you can see in both direction. There is a fishing pier about a mile to the south and directly behind the pier are a public golf course and a private airport that provides plane and hanger rentals. About a mile to the north is the public beach. They offer free Yoga in the mornings and at sunset. There is also live music at the public beach's pavilion several nights each week. While the condo comes with a full kitchen, if dining out is more you passion there are over 100 restaurants within 7 miles of the condo. The pier offers two dining options on the beach; Sharky's and Fin's. Downtown Venice, again roughly a mile away, offers mom & pop style shopping with more than 50 stores. There's a professional playhouse/theater downtown and most Saturdays one of the streets is shut down and turned into a farmers market. If you enjoy diving, fishing and hunting for sharks teeth, this is the beach for you. It was the fossil diving and the people that initially drew me to the area. There is a large hospital on the island, again roughly a mile away and a Publix grocery store across the street from that. If you enjoy sea turtles. Just about any night June through August you can venture down to the primitive beach, a mile and half down the road and watch the sea turtles come in and lay their eggs. There are regulations to follow should you want to participate in that activity and the proper equipment and instructions can be found in the condo to allow you a successful night of sea turtle watching. If you're curious what our beaches looked like before all the homes were build, a mile and half down our sandy shores Caspersen beach begins. Here you'll find no homes for several miles. Untouched nature is all that lies behind the beach all the way to the intercoastal waterway. There are trails you can hike behind the beach as well as bathrooms showers and a boardwalk trail along a portion of the beach. This section is one of the better areas for shark tooth hunting, which Venice is famous for. If you enjoy diving, fishing and hunting for sharks teeth this is the beach for you. A tandem kayak in included with the rental.

Good stay in a "tiny place."

  • 5 of 5

You've heard of amazing "tiny homes?" It's amazing what has been done with this 240 sq. ft. room in what used to be a 2 story motel - now changed into small apartments for some and rentals for others. The owner, who is quite accessible via text or email, has made high quality selections to create a kitchenette with dishwasher, combination microwave/convection oven, and full sized refrigerator with ice-maker in the door. The bathroom has had a full modern tile makeover with a shower which has one fixed and one moveable shower head. Even the toilet is new with a reliable, quick flush. Queen-sized bed was comfortable, but took up most of the space. There are 6 roomy drawers next to the wall and a large wardrobe closet. There was only 1 folding chair and 2 stools under a folding-leaf small table....but there are chairs on the balcony to enjoy. And you can command the TV and light by talking to Alexa! The building is part of a larger complex of owned or rented villas, which means the property has private beach access if you walk a private block past the villas. A friend who flies a private airplane says that the swimming pool is the largest one in the whole area, as seen from the air! Good place for a short stay by one person or a couple if you get out by riding a bike, paddling a kayak, or hanging out at the beach or pool.

Small but filled with a mulitude of things to do...

  • 4 of 5

The renovation of this small studio was well thought out. The kitchen was quite complete with appliances and tools to work with. We ate in most of the time. The location was great! There were many things to do inside and out. This was our first experience with this type of accommodation, and we were pleasantly surprised. We loved the City of Venice. and its beaches. We will most likely return. We came for the closeness of the beach access and were very happy with the old Florida feel of the area.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jaime, I have just returned to the reality of a harsh winter in NYC after spending the month of January at Venice Villas, in Venice Florida. Your condo unit #72 was very clean, quiet, and comfortable, with friendly neighbors and returning guests on both sides.

The proximity to the beach (a few minutes walk), a beautiful pool just outside the door, the shopping and restaurants on Venice avenue all made for a very enjoyable stay.

I would highly recommend your place to others and hope to be returning in the future.

Thanks, Joe

Great location, wonderfully updated and charming suite!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 3 day stay and enjoyed the place very much! It is practically like new construction... the kitchen and bath are amazing and very efficient. Everything is neat, clean and very high-tech in a lot of ways, even has an Alexa! We walked to the beach when we had time which is only about 45 seconds away. The beach was practically empty and the sunsets were amazing. The pool is huge and laundry facilities neat and clean. This is a great spot for a single or couple. Owner is pleasant and very responsive with any requests. Had a great stay and will consider for future visits to the area!! Thanks!!

Very nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this newly redecorated condo. We ourselves are rental property owners and found this condo perfect for our stay in Venice.

The kitchen is well equipped with beautiful cabinets, new countertops, a large spotless refrigerator, dishwasher and all of the dishes, utensils and pots & pans we needed. The kuerig was a nice surprise! We arrived very late at night and were pleased to find some coffee for the morning as well as all the paper products we needed, linens and the bed already made. It was very clean. The bathroom is also newly renovated and quite nice. There is alot of attention to detail here. There were soap products available, extra sample size shampoos and even some laundry detergent. We tried to replace what we used for the next guest. There is an "alexa", a huge new flatscreen television, a recharging station for devices, a printer, board games and a record player. Also available is an olympic sized pool, a kayak and beach chairs.

The ocean is a short walk from the condo and is beautiful and quiet. We enjoyed walking the beach as well as fishing!

We also enjoyed the Venice pier, the Venice inlet and strolling down Venice Ave. with nice shops, restaurants and ice cream.

All in all, we had a wonderful stay in this very nice condo which is very reasonably priced.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $99
Cleaning fee $65 + Tax
Pet Fee $350 + Tax
Tax Rate 12.0%

The home and Property are smoke/Vape free. While I trust that you wouldn't smoke/vape in the home. Your hands and clothes will likely smell of smoke and those will cause the home to smell of smoke. That would effect your security deposit as the home will need a higher level of cleaning as will the AC. If you smoke/vape I suspect renting here would decrease the enjoyment of your vacation and would encourage you to consider other homes first.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
