About the property

3BR, 1.5 Bath. Sleeps 5 Comfortably!

Welcome to your beach cottage on Venice Island just 2 blocks to Venice Main St Downtown and 4 blocks to Venice beach. This Old Florida Gem was built in the 50's and was one of the first properties in this area on the North end of Venice Island. Nestled on a beautiful lot with massive grandaddy pines and a few live oaks it is walking distance to everything the North end of the Island offers.

This gorgeous property was recently restored and updated including modern appliances and new furnishings (March 2013). There are 3 Bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The main bedroom features a king bed, the 2nd bedroom features 2 twin beds and the third smallest bedroom features a futon and a half bath and is adjacent to the largest bedroom. The yard and laundry room is shared with 3 small studio cottages located on the property (One Studio is available in a separate listing for a seasonal rental.

You will fall in love with this Venice Island Beach Cottage with the gulf breezes flowing through the pines and oaks while you are sitting on the porch or at the table on the patio in the yard. You will want to come back again and again!

About Bryan Guentner

My wife and I have lived in the Sarasota-Venice area for over 25 years. I grew up in Wisconsin and Cheri here in Sarasota. We love walking on the beach and have two great children. We are also the broker/owners of RE/MAX Platinum Realty.

Bryan Guentner purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Bryan Guentner chose Florida South West

We love the location and even stay here away from our 'normal' home for stay-cations once in a while. We ride our bikes around the island and walk to Main St, the beach, and the parks which are all just blocks away. This property is close to everything the north end of Venice Island offers... and it is our home away from home!

What makes this cottage unique

We love the grandaddy Pine trees in the front yard and enjoy just sitting on the covered porch area or the patio in the center of the yard. The Island breezes are great and this is a very relaxing property to hang around or come back to after a day at the beach or strolling along Venice Main Street. Relive a simpler time - all with modern appliances and entertainment options.

We occupied the wonderful cottage for a week. It was very clean and even nicer than we expected. Very close to EVERYTHING. We will stay there again!
