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 Venice

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.

The beach is 4 blocks. Downtown 12 blocks. Shopping 6 blocks. Everything a pleasant walk away. Bicycle path just a short ride with 10’s of miles of trails. Gayle (owner) is pleasant and very responsive. We enjoyed our stay.

Delightful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, spacious accommodations in beautiful Venice. Loved reading on the sun porch, lunch at the backyard table and riding the bikes around the area. Both the beach and village are only minutes away. The town is such an enjoyable place to be with Friday night concerts, Saturday morning farmers' market, tennis courts and a variety of great restaurants, unique shops and friendly folk. Simply put, Venice is delightful! We are already planning to come back next year!

An ideal base for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Venice Beach and would love to visit again. The house had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing, being in a quiet neighbourhood. All of our needs were catered for in the varied kitchen equipment that was supplied. We were pleased too to have covered parking and we made good use of the beach chairs.

The local beaches were quiet and unspoiled and we really enjoyed watching the birds there, especially the pelicans, and hunting for sharks’ teeth. The sunsets were just something else!

We enjoyed our visits to Downtown Venice, which we found charming, and were lucky to be able to visit the annual Art Festival and then the Chalk Festival. We found several nice places to eat nearby and supermarket shopping was easy too. Ideal.

Lovely wee quiet house close to beaches.

  • 4 of 5

This was our third time in Venice and we continue to love it. Fantastic beaches with cooling breezes and none of the humidity of Orlando. Incredible wildlife. Super selection of shops and places to eat and visit.

This house was a block further back from the beach than we had previously but we still walked there most days and did a lot of walking in general into town and up to a favourite restaurant, Old Salty Dog.

The house met our needs size wise and had everything we needed. A DVD player would be good though and details on how the recycling works would save bothering the lovely neighbour. The garden could do with a little attention and feels a bit dark and overlooked so we didn’t make use of the bbq.

Excellent value for money and plenty space for the three of us.

Owner's Response: Catherine, Thanks for the review. My apologies for the yard as you arrived directly after hurricane Irma and due to the downed trees and landscaping we decided to start from scratch and will be redoing the yard over the next month. There was a DVD and second bedroom tv which I didn't realize need to be replaced. Thank you so much for letting me know so I can take care of things! Gayle
