About the property

End Unit With 2 Bedrooms And 2 Full Bathrooms & Sleeper Sofa (sleeps 6)

Come stay and relax in this spacious, two-bedroom, two-bath condominium situated on the Bobcat Course at Plantation Golf and Country Club. The unit is located on the ground floor and features a lanai and a spacious patio with a view of the golf course. Abundant sunlight bathes the interior of the home, creating an ideal atmosphere for relaxation. The grounds surrounding the home add to the natural beauty of the location.

The living area is spacious and flows easily into the outdoor living space. The master bedroom includes a king-size bed, walk-in closet, newly renovated master bath (including separate his and her vanities outside the main bath area), and access to the lanai. The second bedroom includes a king size bed, with the main bathroom just outside of the bedroom.

Venice, Florida is located on the Gulf of Mexico south of Sarasota. With its friendly, small town feel, Venice boasts miles of mostly undeveloped beaches, more than 30 parks, 18 public or semi-private golf courses, and various shopping and dining opportunities. If you are seeking a location to relax and treasure the quiet, you are looking in the right place. Fortunately, Sarasota is a quick 30 minute drive from Venice for those times when a bit more activity is desired.

The airports surrounding Venice include: Tampa International (TPA), Sarasota-Bradenton International (SRQ) and Southwest Florida International (RSW), all ranging from a 30 to 75 minute commute to the property.

About Bob MacKinnon

We recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary doing what we love to do, travel! This picture was taken at Arches National Park in Utah during our anniversary excursion. We live in Maryland near the Chesapeake Bay, not too far from Solomon's Island. Florida is one of our favorite travel destinations and we have always envisioned a vacation home in our adopted second state. We look forward to welcoming fellow travelers to our Westchester Gardens home in Venice and to the Gulf Coast of Florida. Enjoy your stay and please let us know if there is anything we can do to enhance the experience!

Why Bob MacKinnon chose Florida South West

Once we saw the view of the golf course and the lake we knew this was destined to be our vacation home.

What makes this condo unique

Venice by itself is well worth the trip, the bonus is how close you are to so many great Florida attractions!

A Lovely Condo with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with the condo we rented hurriedly, following an unexpected bike accident that extended our stay in Florida by another 5 weeks. The property manager was kind, helpful and available whenever we needed him. Comfortable beds and towels; nice furniture & a beautiful view of the golf course. We felt very lucky to find this unit.

Great Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was even lovelier than the pictures! The owners were great to work was easy and they arranged for things we wanted to be purchased (beach chairs and umbrella). The condo was very well equipped. The location is SUPER...paradise-like setting with Palm trees and wildlife, overlooking the 18th green...great spot for morning coffee! We spotted a pair of bald eagles, osprey, cranes, herons and egrets...and a quiet resident alligator. The condo grounds are beautifully maintained...pool was amazing! gas grills are on site. You are minutes from shopping, great restaurants and beaches. You will be more than pleased....only's already booked for next year by other tenants! The Venice Audubon rookery is VERY close...and be sure to check out Cedar Reef Fish Camp for great meals!
