About Kevin 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!!!

Kevin Callahan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kevin 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.

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.

Super Stay in Venice, Fl (Review by obxkayaker)

  • 5 of 5

This centrally located duplex home in Venice is a wonderful choice for vacation travel. The house is very nicely furnished with plenty of seating in the living room and very comfy beds in the two bedrooms. It is also well equipped with a very functional kitchen and a very comfortable lanai out back. The carport parking is convenient for bringing groceries and other items into the house. Our two small dogs were completely at home in a matter of hours. The area is ideal for biking with three bikes available in the utility room. An easy bike ride down Airport Road will take you to the concrete bike path that parallels the scenic Venice waterway for a couple of miles and separates the "island" from the remainder of Venice. There are some excellent waterfront restaurants in the area - Sharky's and Pop's Sunset Grill (Nokomis) are first rate. If you want to see some authentic backwoods Florida wilderness, check out the Myakka River boat tour to see wildlife and the incredibly scenic river. Kevin, the owner, is completely responsive to any concerns you might have and very cordial to deal with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would most definitely consider a much longer stay at this same property at some future date. All in all - highly recommended !!
