Visit beautiful Venice Island. Shop, eat and enjoy the sunny Florida scenery. Venice, Florida is known as the 'Shark's Tooth Capital of the World' and your vacation paradise is only 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.
One side of Villa Grande features the master bedroom boasting a King size bed and a walk-in closet with plenty of room for your clothes. The master bathroom has a tub, shower, towel closet and plenty of counter space on the vanity. Feel extra pampered with the plush spa towels and spa robes provided for you during your stay.
On the other side of the home, a pocket door gives the second bedroom its own living area with access to a full second bathroom. The bedroom includes a Queen size bed and a roomy closet for all of those new 'Shark's Tooth Capital' t-shirts. The second bathroom has a spacious vanity top, large mirror and a large walk-in shower.
Also offered is one fold-out Simmons DreamSleep twin bed with very comfy memory foam mattress and a roomy full mattress sized sofa bed in the Florida room.
The kitchen features a breakfast bar and is fully stocked with pots, pans, gadgets and updated appliances - including dishwasher. We also stock spices, coffee, salt, pepper, sugar and other basics that you don't have to buy at the store. We provide paper towels, toilet paper, laundry soap, dishwasher soap and some sample sizes of toothpaste, mouthwash etc so the only thing you need to shop for is perishable food that you'd like to cook at home.
The living room lets you sit back and relax between all of that hard work of laying on the beach and features a large LED HD TV with loads of middle tier HD cable channels and a DVR for recording your favorite shows while you are out. It also features super fast 50/50 Frontier FIOS wireless internet access (free WiFi) for seamless Internet content streaming. Also included is a 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!
Throw open the French door and let the breeze pour in as you enjoy a little coffee or tea. Dine outside while enjoying the Florida sunshine under the palm trees while your kids or pets play in the fenced yard.
The garage is attached and includes automatic door control and full size 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.
Villa Grande has ceiling fans throughout as well as central air and heating. Nearby is a heated outdoor Olympic pool at the Venice YMCA which has great daily, weekly or monthly rates to use the entire facility.
One feature which we believe sets our property apart from many others is that we now use a keyless entry system and you are given a code to access the house which 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 the Legacy Trail and walking as you take a stroll or walk your dog. The local area has several dog parks and Brohard Paw Park Dog Beach where your pooch can run free.
Included with your stay is a pass to the South Venice Beach Ferry. Experience nostalgic 'Old Florida' as you take a 4 minute ride on the ferry to the beach which is only accessible to people with ferry passes. The beach ferry has turned out to be a favorite with our guests!
We can process your credit card payment or an electronic check payment.

About Ruth Miller
Hi! 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 Gardens
We chose this house to offer as a seasonal rental because it is conveniently located yet also in a quiet residential neighborhood. We added a privacy fence to the spacious back yard and changed the flooring to ceramic tile so that we can accommodate travelers with their pets. We own and manage this property ourselves. You will never have to deal with a property manager.
What makes this House unique
House is on a spacious corner lot with a tropical garden feel. Back yard is completely privacy fenced. Floor plan is open and spacious feeling.

Beautiful house with lots of room and easy access to beaches and shopping.
Spacious rooms nicely furnished, big yard with lots of shade. Recommended for families looking to explore Venice and surrounding areas.
Good location, very nice host. We were very happy here.
Such a great house with amenities that really made our stay very comfortable! Our dogs loved the huge fenced yard. We will definitely be staying here again!
Traveling with two small dogs
The home was beautiful and very clean! There was a very warm welcoming basket and a notebook filled with very helpful information. We loved the fenced in back yard for our two small dogs. The ferry passes were great and all of the beach items were very useful. Also, they accommodated a very late request to book the home. Outstanding customer service! We plan to return as soon as possible.
We look forward to having you all back to Venice again soon! Thanks for taking such good care of the house during your stay too!
More than Expected
Great extra care was taken to anticipate everything. We were very impressed and wanted to stay longer.
Amazing Place To Stay!!
I stayed in Venice Fl for a week on vacation, and it was amazing. Ruth was so helpful with directions to places. She had a list of great places to eat around. The house was so nice, I'd recommend to anyone going on vacation to rent a house, so much more relaxing and homey than a hotel. The private beach was quiet and nice. For anyone who has a dog I'd definitely recommend the doggie parks so much fun. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation I'd say Venice is the place to be.
We're so happy to hear that you and your family and doggies enjoyed your stay in Venice and at Villa Grande. We look forward to having you visit again soon!
