About the Property

3BR 3BA Home in lovely neighborhood, with Tropical Views and great floor plan

Venice Balcony House is a fun house, with many unusual spaces to enjoy. You will truly enjoy your visit to our lovely Florida home located on a large creek leading out to the Canal of Venice, which is the intracoastal waterway. Beaches are very close-by, and the neighborhood has its own ferry boat that takes you across the Canal to the private South Venice Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. It leaves every half hour from 9:30am until sunset.

Our Key West inspired home with screen-enclosed heated pool, is set on a lush tropical 1/4 acre lot. The house is surrounded with tropical palms, a lemon tree and a large old live oak, and has a large yard enclosed by a privacy fence. The pool is surrounded by a two story screened enclosure. The pool and courtyard are very private, as we have a wooden fence that surrounds the side and back yards.

On the main level, our open living/dining room provides comfy sofas and chairs for family movie night after a long day at the beach! This beautiful home has a comfortable large kitchen and dining area with plenty of counter space, and a high breakfast bar. The front space has French doors leading out to a large sunny balcony. This semi-covered balcony has a table and chairs and a 2 lounge chairs which can be used to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the eastern sunrise among the tropical Palm trees. Just off the family room at the back, the spacious rear balcony is another relaxing space overlooking the pool and its screened in courtyard. This balcony has two ceiling fans to cool any warm tropical nights. Overhead fans provide cool breezes for every room in the home. The family room can be used as a game room, extra movie space to set up your computer at the desk, and also has a sleeper sofa/futon for an additional 1 person. There is a third bathroom adjacent, with shower. The 3 panel sliding glass door is fully retractable and opens up the space to the screened pool deck. The house is complete with central air/heat in two zones. Included is a full laundry room with washer and dryer. There is high speed wireless internet access throughout the house and pool area. Televisions are supplied with Cable TV Channel access, DVD player, and Roku Box.

The master suite has a lovely romantic feel with its canopy bed and flowing curtains, and its own private balcony with a 3rd floor view of the surrounding tropical landscape. Relax here with the doors wide open and enjoy the gulf ocean breezes while sipping a glass of fine wine. The master bathroom is complete with two sinks and newly tiled large shower. There are two additional bedrooms, also on this level, which can accommodate two each and have a bathroom with tub and shower.

Venice Balcony house has lots of other conveniences such as beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs, books, games, coolers, pool toys and more.If you are bringing your boat, the house does not have a boat dock; however, there is adequate parking for a boat trailer on the property and there are numerous public boat launch facilities available in the area.

...it's all here for your perfect vacation enjoyment.

The upstairs 3 bedrooms comfortably sleep 6 persons. An additional 1 person may sleep in the family room on the sleeper sofa/futon, on the main level.

Lots of fun on the Gulf of Mexico beaches from Casey Key south to Boca Grande. Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota to the north have many beaches, museums and Theme Parks, such as Busch Gardens, and various Water Parks. Ft. Myers and Naples to the south have great State Parks, airboat rides, museums, tours of the everglades as well as various fishing tours, river boat tours, and smaller reserves for wildlife viewings, such as the Venice Rookery.

Walk for miles along the beach or out on the jetty or pier to see the beautiful sunsets here in Venice. Right at our beach we dig for sharks teeth and shells. I have sometimes seen sharks teeth on top of the sand and surf while taking a long walk along the waters edge. Lots of fun.

Venice Balcony House is located at a premium location close to everything, Our quiet neighborhood provides such wonderful breezes and our balconies allow you to relax and appreciate the nearby beach lifestyle. Enjoy the undiscovered Florida in our own corner of Paradise!

Venice is a paradise awaiting you. We are a small beach town with fine restaurants, lovely shops and a small theater just waiting to be explored. Venice library, community center, and art center are fun to visit. There are parks all over Venice, even one with sidewalk fountains for children and adults to run through. Huge banyan trees cover walking trails which take you straight to the beach. Rental shops are available for boating, kayaking, wind surfing, para-sailing, water skiing, snorkeling, deep sea diving and fishing. There is a large pier is on the island that can be used for fishing with no license required. Other activities on the island are an 18 hole golf course , and a small airport where you can take sightseeing planes, helicopter rides or fly in with your own plane! Just down the road from the house are many food shops, department stores and restaurants with a wide variety to choose from.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Living in Venice is living a dream come true. We are so thankful to live in such a beautiful place in this world. We purchased this house last November, and are so enjoying the beach, the pool, the old historic town on Venice Ave and the tropical birds that live right by our creek. We have found our spot in paradise.

Why the Owner Chose South Venice, FL, USA:
We love our little downtown with boutiques, shell shops, clothing, shoes, and home design shops. The restaurants are excellent, and there are so many, you could try one every day you are on vacation!! The town was originally designed by urban designer John Nolan, whose grandson is a friend of our son!! There are many amazing parks like the palm park and the arboretum park with all the trees and plants labeled. There are so many beaches up and down the coastline, each with a different feel of the beach to explore. The best fun we have is collecting shells and sharks teeth, which we display in our home. This is one of only a few places you can find the fossilized sharks teeth on Florida beaches. The water here changes from day to day, but we love to explore the shallow water and sand bars near the beach with snorkeling. We see many dolphins swimming just yards from the edge of the waters. I have seen different kinds of fish, a small sting ray, jumping fish, schools of fish and hermit crabs on the ocean floor. We have many different types of birds, pelicans, blue herons, and egrets to mention a few. The best thing about our house is it is in a quiet neighborhood, and so close to the beach ferry, it only takes a minute or two to drive over there and hop on. It departs all day long every 30 minutes. Many other beaches are within a short drive from the house, as are hiking trails, and bike trails, too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Venice Balcony House has been designed and furnished as a Key West inspired Villa with 2200 square feet of living space to enjoy. Our pool is heated and very enjoyable and relaxing. It's really great to come back from the beach and head straight into the pool!! This is a lovely fun place, with so many interesting things to do. It is wonderful to sit on the front balcony in the morning and enjoy the sunshine as we look out over the tropical palm trees and plantings, and tropical birds. Just today I saw two beautiful bald eagles just across our creek! What a treat! The neighborhood is a bird sanctuary... You will enjoy the parks nearby, the beaches and lovely gulf waters, the wonderful restaurants, plenty of interesting shops, the wild birds and many other types of wildlife, the proximity to all the amusement parks and to the Everglades National Park. Your vacation will be all your dreams come true!
