Location, location, location!
Just a 3 block walk to a free boat ride to a private beach on Manasota Key and good shark's teeth hunting. I provide 5 beach chairs, 5 beach towels, beach toys, beach umbrella, and a cooler for your use. The beach ferry runs every day except Wednesday, from 9:30am to sunset. Up to 6 people can use the ferry pass I provide. I am pet friendly and have a fenced back yard.
I am only 10 minutes to public Manasota Beach, 15 to downtown Venice and 30 to Sarasota. I've lived in Venice for over 13 years and love to share my favorite spots and things to do with visitors. I love it here and know you will too!
My home is a quaint, modest, clean, older 2BR/1.5 bath with kitchen, washer/dryer, lanai, small unheated pool, BBQ, WiFi and Comcast TV. There is also a very comfy couch in the living room that you can use for a 5th person. I have a fully stocked kitchen and you are welcome to use any of my spices, oils, etc.
For privacy, my home is on a large wooded lot with no neighbors on either side and has a fenced back yard. It has an outdoorsy feel to it with wood ceilings, wood floors and a fireplace. It is not a fancy, newer home, but is very comfortable. It's only about 2 blocks as the crow flies to the Gulf and you can sometimes hear the surf crashing when the wind is in the right direction!
The master BR has a very comfortable premium memory foam queen bed, the other BR has 2 singles. Both are upstairs. The master BR has 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets for a great nights sleep. I provide all soaps, detergents, shampoo, and paper products.
I am a long time Venice resident and can give advice on great, unique places us locals love to go. Just 10 minutes to shopping center with Walmart, Publix, etc. This is my home, so no smoking please. Other than that, treat it like your own home.
My cleaning lady Kathy and her handyman husband Steve live just down the street and can be there in a few minutes if any issues arise. They can also answer questions about things to do in the area.
