About Karen and Ed Cornthwaite

We live in Florida on the east coast and have lived in Florida for over 30yrs. We are both originally from the Washington, DC area. We love the Venice area though and hope to travel when we are able to retire in a few years.

Place was clean beds comfortable owners were accessible for any needs. If you plan on doing much cooking you might want to bring your own favorite pans/tools. Venice is a great little town lots if good places to eat quiet setting and 5 beaches in easy driving distance. (All less than 10 miles from the house) convenient shopping nearby.

Nice Florida Home in quiet track

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy to find that this property was exactly as advertised. The 2 plus car garage was really nice for storing golf clubs, fishing gear and of course the car. The living room and den both have double wide sliding glass doors that open to the lanai making one continuous open living space. We found the location to be great for quick access to shopping and golf. Every kind of store you need is within 2 miles and far enough from the Gulf to keep the cold March breezes away. Walking around the neighborhood is great and very safe. We have signed up for next year too.
