About Kevin & Debbie

We chose Venice Island for our first condo purchased in 1999, for its beautiful beaches, quaint downtown, friendly people, and wonderful weather.

Kevin & Debbie purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kevin & Debbie chose Venice

Venice Island is well known for sandy beaches with abundant shark's teeth. Our end unit condo has views of the Gulf of Mexico. The beach and our pool are just outside our door, providing the relaxing sounds of water while enjoying the fresh Gulf air.

This particular unit has the benefit of covered parking for your car, and our spot is right by the building elevator.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo has breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico featuring amazing sunsets! Full unobstructed view of water from every window. The sandy white beach is right outside our door and perfect for lazy days in the sun or surfing the waves. The public boat launch is right around the corner. The South Jetty is a short walk up the beach. Dolphins are often seen there searching for a meal. There are many restaurants within walking distance or a short drive away. Just a few minutes away, cultural opportunities can be found in Venice, or in the city of Sarasota including museums, theatres and shopping. Many other attractions in Tampa, Fort Myers, and other locations within an hour or so.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo is beautifully decorated with views of water from every window. The covered parking keeps your car from over heating in the sun. The beach is right there!

Great Location for a Gulf Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this very pleasant, neat and clean condo from mid November through December and had a wonderful vacation. The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable and made for easy sleeping, while the small galley style kitchen was well equipped and added to a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The owners were most accommodating and motivated to ensure our satisfaction.

The San Marco building is perfectly located near the jetty on Venice Island with great views of the Gulf and Inland Waterway. All of the people at San Marco were very friendly and helpful with information about not only the premises but the surrounding area. We’re coming back to stay in this unit for 2014 and look forward to another wonderful vacation.

Thanks for a very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

Allow us please to convey our thanks for a very nice stay.

We really enjoyed staying here. The condo has just everything you need and want, and the location is simply perfect. The climate has been extremely friendly and we have had lots of exciting experiences, like excursions around, doing no less than five nearby golf courses and the good life of bathing in the open sea as well as the excellent pool.

Sunsets are really beautiful here.

Birds are really fantastic here, and we have been stunned with watching the pelicans and other sea birds in their spectacular fishing activities.

Thanks very much for quick assistance all through.
