Beach Bound Escapes
About the owner: My favorite childhood memories are visiting my cousins and grandparents with my family on Florida beach vacations. I met my future husband on a Florida vacation many years ago. For more than a decade, I have owned a vacation rental house business and absolutely love helping families plan their dream Florida beach vacations. We are proud to say we have many happy repeat guests who make our Venice vacation house their favorite annual beach escape!
Why the Owner Chose Venice, FL, USA:
We own the vacation house right next door. The sister of the lady we purchased the house next door for put this Venice Island house on the market about a decade ago and we jumped at the chance to have another dream vacation house in this great Venice Island location. Ironically we often have adult sisters renting both of the side-by-side vacation pool houses so they can be close but each family still has their own space with plenty of privacy. We absolutely love this vacation house's location! We can easily walk to our great beach, Sharky's ocean-front restaurant with live tropical music, the Venice Fishing Pier & the shops & restaurants of Historic Venice Avenue!!! There are just a handful of single family homes in this quaint beach community which can LEGALLY be rented on a weekly basis & we are proud to be one of them.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Four key things I often hear our guests rave about: our interior designer creates special interiors with casual 'island touches' so guests feel like they've escaped the real world and can fully relax. Second - we have a beautiful, newer private heated pool so we were able to put in many cool features like the multiple water fountains arching into the tropical blue pool waters to delight our guests. Third - we offer outstanding hospitality and have two very similar neighboring vacation houses in this desirable Island of Venice location near our great beach & also walkable to historic Venice Avenue shops & restaurants. Many of our guests want their friends or family to stay close but still have their own private pool house & their own yard - a very unique feature. & * Finally - Venice Island was just featured in "Coastal Living Magazine" as one of the Best Seaside Towns in the US! In a prime, quiet Venice Island setting, Villa Portofino is one of the very few legal weekly stay vacation houses in this highly desired beach town! Don't risk booking an "illegal weekly rental place" which can easily fall through. Be safe & choose a local leader in upscale vacation house accommodations with more than a decade experience in providing top hospitality service. We treat our guests like family! Each guest is invited to our free new online "Hospitality Suite App" - we spent a long time loading it up with our favorite local restaurants, fitness options, best shops, great local activities & very detailed vacation house & area information so our guests can really maximize their vacation experience. Cheers!
