Augusta Villa, Venice FL, 2+ Bedroom Condo

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 30 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 BR + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6: 2 adults and up to 4 children)

Fully furnished, single level condominium is located in the Augusta Villa neighborhood of the popular Plantation Golf and Country Club community in the charming city of Venice FL.(See walk thru video of Villa. It's at the end of the pictures but you have to go thru them to the end.) Other than the front porch and patio doors, there are no steps in this cdo, making it ideal if you have limited mobility or just don't like doing stairs. This ideal location is just a short car ride of 10 to 15 minutes from the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Venice is situated just south of Sarasota and north of Fort Myers. Nearby Venice Island boasts fabulous shopping, restaurants and art galleries and there are numerous public golf courses within a 5 to 15 minute drive. You'll never be at loss for things to do.

This beautifully furnished/updated villa features an open design with 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a walk in closet and an ensuite bathroom, beautifully newly remodeled with a walk in shower. There is a full eat in kitchen with updated appliances, living room and dining area with a formal dining table. The living room is tastefully decorated, Florida style, with rattan furniture, a comfy leather reclining chair and has a leather couch that unfolds into a queen bed. There is a large Flat Screen TV and Blu-ray player with HD Cable DVR and high speed internet service. The sanctuary of the lanai offers a great golf course view, the perfect place to enjoy breakfast, coffee or just relaxing with your favorite beverage.

The Villa includes a nice sized kitchen with all standard appliances and is fully equipped with all the necessities to make and enjoy your favorite meals right at home. There is a fully stocked linen closet with bath and beach towels, linens as well as a washer and dryer. Nearby heated pool overlooks the golf course and provides the perfect, secluded location to relax and enjoy the beautiful Venice sun (pool for Augusta Villa resident and guest use only).

Unlike many of the Florida Gulf Beach communities, Venice has several public beaches with concessions, changing and shower areas and free parking literally across the street from the beach. We love lodging at the beach, but don't like the high rent associated with it. In Venice, it's easy to drive, park and walk across the street with chairs, coolers and towels.

About Jim Larsen

Hi, we are Jim and Lori Larsen. We are midwesterners and have traveled to the Gulf Coast of Florida with our kids from the time they were born. We absolutly love Florida's beauty, the lifestyle, and the GOLF!!! We made our first trip to Venice in February 2010, and feel we discovered one of Florida's best kept secerets. Venice is unlike the typical 'beach towns' we've been to. We love the laid back freindly atmosphere, the 'old Florida' coastline. It's not built up with condo's, hotels, and convienience stores, and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico is only 10 minutes away. Did I mention anything about golf? The courses I've played in Venice, 3 of them within 15 minutes of our place are absolutly fabulous!

Anyway, we purhcased our Florida home with the idea of when we are able to retire making it our seasonal home. We worked really hard to furnish our place to make it feel like a home. We really hope that if you've never been to Venice, that you give it a try, and if you need a place to stay, I'm sure you'll like our Plantation Golf and Country Club, Augusta Villa home!

Jim Larsen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jim Larsen chose Venice

We chose to purchase our Augusta Villa home for a number of reasons. First and foremost was because of our neighbors. They welcomed us from the first time we walked the neigborhood trying to get a feel for Venice. Several welcomed us into their homes so we could get decorating ideas!

The other reasons were for the proximity to gulf beaches and golf courses, resturants and shopping areas.

What makes this condo unique

As the owner, I feel it's my responsibility to make sure that our guests have a relaxing, stress free experience while staying at our Venice FL home. This home is well built and well maintained, but with all the appliances and other infrastructure, things can and do go wrong. I have an excellent support group on the grounds to help out when issues happen. If you read some of the reviews, many of them mention the attention to I pay to make sure that you will enjoy your stay here.

Wonderful Month

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a lovely home-away-from-home for a fantastic vacation. Everything I could have wanted was provided. The location is near necessary stops such as a grocery store, and an easy drive to downtown Venice and beaches. Jim was very responsive to questions, and kept in touch to be sure that there were no issues with the condo. Renting this beautiful condo and spending a month in Venice was a great experience!

We spent the last two months, January & February 2016 at Jim & Lori's Augusta Villa condo. This was our first experience at the Plantation and at this condo; and our experience was a real joy. The condo is very well maintained, very clean, well equipped, and a wonderful location overlooking the golf course. The owners were very responsive to our questions and they made sure everything about the unit was satisfactory. We would highly recommend this

property and enjoy returning.

Absolutley Outdistanced Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a month respite at this fantastic vacation home. It was our first time in the Venice Florida area and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. This accommodation was everything the owners promised and then some, the villa was in pristine condition and provided everything possible to certainly enhance ones rest and relaxation and we had the feeling of home from the moment we opened the front door. The location is close to a number of fine food establishments, lots of shopping, golf courses and beautiful beaches.

We both want to thank Jim and Lori for the opportunity to experience their accommodation offered and certainly highly recommend this Villa.

Wonderful Villa and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Venice and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This Villa is spacious, clean, comfortable, well decorated, and the Plantation Golf Community is beautiful! We really enjoyed riding our bikes through the neighborhood or golfing at one of the many great courses nearby. The owners are easy to reach, very friendly and make sure your stay here is completely satisfactory. We truly felt at home in this beautiful Villa and hope to enjoy it for many more years. Thanks Jim and Lori for providing wonderful accommodations.

Extremely satisfied renters.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of this villa when we stay there during December 2014. Jim and Lori were nice and friendly, and made all effort to assure our comfort in their tastefully decorated Villa. We enjoyed being right next to the golf course, walking through the well manicured Augusta Plantation or at the beach; swimming in the assigned pools or dining and shopping in the Venice area. Anyone staying here will not be disappointed.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent October 2014 at Jim & Lori's villa. It exceeded our expectations. It felt new, was exceptionally clean, very well appointed and very comfortable.

The Augusta Villa grounds are beautiful and well manicured, the people were friendly, and the pool was great. The location is very convenient to shopping, restaurants and beaches.

If you want to stay at a wonderful villa, call Jim and Lori. We would definitely stay there again.
