About Gayle Callahan

Husband and I bought this place because we just love Venice Island. Beaches are more private than many other in Florida! Park in the dunes! Downtown Venice has real charm to it! Very hometown and friendly community with alot of free or inexpensive amenities which are open to the public (rare in FL). There are no condos or buildings on the closest beaches near us-pure nature, beautiful!!!

Gayle Callahan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Gayle Callahan chose Florida South West

This property is great because it is completely updated but has that 'Old Florida' feel. Renters come back year after year, mostly repeat business. We keep it super clean, comfortable beachy furnishing and well stocked for your vacation stay.

What makes this condo unique

The location is very central to many things, and super quiet, you can hear the church bells ring. This along with cleanliness, relaxing feel and furnishings this is why renters tell me they keep coming back.

I needed this trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are already talking about when we can come back to this area. The trip was exactly what we needed and the condo was clean, comfortable and convenient. The kids became obsessed with finding the biggest sharks tooth at several of the beaches. The dog beach was amazing! We found several great restaurants and a near-by coffee roaster. The only think I would change is the next time we come we will stay longer! Thank again!

Owner's Response: Hi Sally, Thank you for your review. I hope you enjoyed your stay. We keep salt, pepper, sugar packets etc. I am not sure which condiments were missing, and am sorry you did not have them. We do not keep open, refrigerated condiments between tenants for sanitary reasons. Sincerely Gayle Callahan

Second time to stay here, convenient location decorated with beach theme.

  • 5 of 5

Love Venice and this property is so convenient to everything. Farmers Market is great on Saturday mornings to purchase fresh veggies and fruit. Venice is always having some type of fun festival. Top restaurants enjoyed were Crows Nest, Sharkey's, Suncoast Cafe, Mi Pueblo. Beaches are fantastic, thanks to Kevin for providing beach chairs, etc.
