Overview

About the property

2 bedroom 2 bathroom vacation rental home close to beach with many amenities

Breezy Villa is a cute and cozy 2 bedroom split single family home located only minutes away from popular Sharky`s restaurant (and the newly opened Fin's), the Venice Fishing Pier and four blocks from the beach. It features two bedrooms and two baths with a porcelain tile floor.

**** To see our walk through video - go to photo number 3 but not in expanded view and you will be able to view the video.****

Breezy Villa has a split floor plan with each bedroom separated by the living room with their own private baths. Provided are many amenities to make your vacation relaxing, including beach chairs, umbrella, shark's tooth strainer, beach toys and two beach cruiser bicycles.

Proximity to the Gulf of Mexico brings almost constant breezes to this adorable villa. Throw open all the windows and the double French doors and enjoy the fresh ocean air!

Visit beautiful Venice Island only 3 minutes north. Shop, eat and enjoy the many wonderful activities only minutes away, including the Venice Rookery where you can see Bald Eagles and other exotic large birds, the Dome Flea Market, the weekly Venice Farmer's Market, Warm Mineral Springs (just re-opened in March 2014) or travel 20 minutes north to Sarasota for the Mote Marine Aquarium or Myakka River Park where you can see alligators in their natural habitat from an air boat.

Venice, Florida is known as the 'Shark's Tooth Capital of the World' and your vacation paradise is only four blocks to a ferry which will take you on a four minute trip to Manasota Key (passes provided) or you are minutes from Caspersen Beach where you can scoop shark's teeth right out of the shallows. Don't worry, these teeth aren't new, they're prehistoric.

On one side of Breezy Villa is the master suite with double doors that close creating a three-room cozy and private retreat from the rest of the home. The master bedroom features a comfortable King size bed and a walk-in closet with plenty of room for your clothes. The master bathroom has a bath tub and shower. Feel extra pampered after your shower with the plush spa towels and waffle cotton spa robe provided for you during your stay.

The third space is a separate office area with a full length desk. Close the master bedroom door, throw your laptop on the desk and surf with high speed wireless Internet with no worries about disturbing someone sleeping.

The second bedroom includes a Queen sized bed and a roomy closet for all of those new “Shark's Tooth Capital” t-shirts. It also boasts its own bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Also offered are two Simmons DreamSleep folding twin beds with very comfy memory foam mattresses.

The living room lets you sit back and relax between all of that hard work of laying on the beach and features a large HD TV with loads of HD channels and a DVR for recording your favorite shows while you are out, wireless Internet access (Free WiFi). Also included is an Internet cordless telephone which features free unlimited local and national calling in the US. No need to worry about cell phone charges or signal coverage with your cell phone!

In the dining room, throw open the French doors and let the breeze pour in as you enjoy a little coffee or tea at the shaded patio table. The back patio invites you to cook on the propane grill and dine outside while enjoying the Florida sunshine or comfortable nights under the palm trees while being serenaded by tree frogs and crickets. Relax there and watch your kids or pets play in the fenced yard, chasing the cute little geckos.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, gadgets and updated appliances – including dishwasher. Also included are basic spices, coffee and sugar to get you started.

Next to the kitchen is a full laundry room with washer and dryer for drying those wet bathing suits, washing those towels you were sitting on at the beach or getting your clothes cleaned of one adventure and ready for the next.

Breezy Villa has ceiling fans throughout as well as brand new in 2015 central air and heating. Also for your convenience is a roomy garage with inside entrance to the house and an automatic garage door opener is provided for your use.

Nearby is a heated outdoor Olympic pool at the Venice YMCA which has great daily, weekly or monthly rates to use the entire facility.

The back yard is fully fenced so no need to have to walk the dog several times a day - although you probably won't mind strolling around the lovely quiet neighborhood.

One feature which we believe sets our property apart from many others is that we change the locks after every guest and the lock box code you are given to access the house is individualized and never the same. There are no cleaning people or contractors who will have a key to the house. As the property owners, we respect your privacy and value your security.

Venice is a very beautiful and laid back city and you're sure to meet other friendly people biking and walking as you take a stroll or walk your dog. The local area has several dog parks and dog beaches where your pooch can run free.

We can process your credit card payment or an electronic check payment.

About Ruth Miller

Hello! My name is Ruth and my husband Dan and I live in Venice so we can take care of any issues with the house ourselves. We visited the area in December 2011 from Pennsylvania and during our stay we decided to move here and have never looked back.

Ruth Miller purchased this house in 2012

Why Ruth Miller chose Venice

We chose this property for a vacation rental business because of it's proximity to beaches and quiet residential neighborhoods.

We own and manage this property ourselves. You will never have to deal with a property manager.

What makes this house unique

You can ride bikes, drive or walk to the nearby South Venice Beach Ferry which takes you to a private beach for the South Venice Community. No need to park your car and carry your beach gear for several blocks. Beach ferry pass is provided with your stay. The area also enjoys a nearly constant breeze because of its proximity to the water, which keeps the bugs away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This rental was spectacular . We absolutely loved the location. The house. Everything about it. We couldn't have asked for more . I would and have recommended this place to others and we will revisit and stay here. The owner Ruth Miller is awesome as well. She is very quick to respond to Any questions or concerns . Was very helpful with local information on what to do and what places to visit. The house had everything needed and then some. I could go on all day about how wonderful this place but I would like to say to just book with her and check it out for yourself and you will not be sorry. Wonderful person and wonderful place and wonderful and convenient location.

Clean and Comfortable in Venice

  • 5 of 5

You never know until you get there if the home you are renting measures up to the photos and description on the web site. Well, Breezy Villa was even better than we expected. Comfortable, roomy and exceptionally clean. The owner, Ruth, has thought of everything a renter could possibly want or need from bikes to snacks to sand toys for kids to spa robes and slippers. There is a backyard and patio that feel very private, even in the middle of South Venice. Ruth communicated really well and we felt she cared about her property and made sure we enjoyed it. She came over to attend to a minor problem with one of the bikes right away. Venice has so much to offer vacationers and Breezy Villa is the best place to rest and relax between adventures!

The house was great. Little drive to the beaches but that was ok. Only negative of the week was the Red Tide, but that is nature. Will definately want to stay here again if we come to this area.

Delightful "Home Away from Home"!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this home for one month. Feels like “home away from home” the minute you walk in! Light, bright and open! You cannot ask for a nicer place to spend your vacation. The house is extremely clean and well maintained. In addition there is a fenced yard, washer/ dryer, grill, bikes and helmets, beach equipment.

The location is fantastic; minutes away from everything; multiple beaches, eateries, the YMCA, Shamrock Park and the dog beach!

A pet friendly home that doesn’t seem “pet friendly” In other words it is sparkling clean and fresh and comfortable. Everything you need is there, including a nice welcome basket with dog and human treats!

We love traveling with our dog and riding our bikes! Venice is perfect for both activities. We really enjoyed the dog beach, all dogs and owners were friendly. Beach was super clean. Restaurants we enjoyed were Cedar Reef Fish Camp, Old Salty Dog, First Watch, all dog friendly. There is a farmers market in Venice on Saturdays and one in Englewood on Thursdays. The gelato at Ciao Gelato in downtown Venice is amazing and addictive!

Venice is a beautiful clean town with lots of recreation. No fee parking at the beach, Venetian Waterway Trail was great for walking dogs and riding bikes. Shamrock Park is a gem for walking, riding bikes, observing nature!

Ruth is awesome to work with. She is available and responsive, always pleasant with a good sense of humor. Extremely easy and efficient check in and out system.

We loved this vacation home and Venice so much, that we bought a home near here this year!

Paradise in Venice, Florida!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Breezy Villa. We've made so many memories here. Ruth is warm, friendly, caring, at the same time a true professional. There is always a welcome basket and water waiting for us, along with coffee to get us started. Our pups know the house and run out to the yard as soon as we open the French doors. The home is spacious and equipped with all of the comforts of home. The beds are comfy and the area is quiet. The palms in the back grew tall to allow privacy. I must stay longer next time. I miss it already.
