About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Ideal for a large family gathering or reunion, this charming beach house for ten can be easily rented in conjunction with its next-door-neighbor-but-one, Baycrest II, and/or the elegant Laguna Mansion one block away. Could these homes be your perfect beach wedding solution?

With a brand new heated pool and enviable location (1 block to Roberts Bay, 3 blocks to downtown Venice and only 5 blocks to Venice Beach), there’s plenty to write home about - if you can be bothered. Quite likely, you’ll be too busy hunting sharks’ teeth, spotting dolphins and window shopping in Old Venice. The charms of this locale are many, and reward repeat visits.

Old Venice is a distinct town with real character and stands out from all others along the coast. Italian-style architecture dates to the early 1920s and street names pay homage to the town’s influences: stroll down Via Venezia, San Marco and Firenze, for example.

Wander along Main Street and browse to your heart’s content in shops, restaurants and little boutiques. Enjoy the best in al fresco dining at charming sidewalk cafes. Along the way, admire huge oaks are draped in Spanish moss. This town is absolutely charming.

As is this Baycrest home. A brand new heated pool and surrounding patio are enclosed in a gorgeous screened lanai. Treat yourself to Terrazzo tile floors and many further indulgences. Tropical accents dot the walls throughout the house. Wireless and cable high-speed Internet are added conveniences.

New furniture in the living room is of particularly high quality. Large coffee and side tables are great for holding snacks or cooling drinks, and everyone will fight over the leather recliner chairs and matching foot stools. They’re sublime.

When you choose to dine at home, the dining room is a further option (in addition to outside patio table and barbecue). Opening directly to the kitchen, it’s an ideal spot in which to plan your day together, catch up on email or enjoy a bite of toast.

The home’s three bedrooms include a king bed in the master suite, with two twins and two queens in the guest rooms. Enjoy brand new furniture throughout. Two further guests will sleep comfortably in the sunroom on an oversized sleeper sofa. All of the bedrooms are spacious and have large closets. Of the two bathrooms, one has a bath/shower combo and the other a handsome tiled shower stall.

Look out for ‘snow birds’ as you walk to the beach. Parrots visit Venice and surrounds during the winter, and are often found nesting in palm trees along the shore.

Our Baycrest house is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Venice Island near Roberts Bay. Our house is on a small side street at 433 Baycrest Drive and is just 5 blocks to the Venice Beach and 3 blocks to downtown Venice. We just added a beautiful pool and enclosed patio and lanai.

Location, Location, Location! The Baycrest House is only a 5 block walk to the Venice Beach and a few minutes more to the Crow's Nest seafood restaurant where you can enjoy live music at night and watch the sunset. If you have a dog, it is a nice walk or short car ride to Venice's famous dog beach - Brohard Paw Park. Also, the beach home is about 3 blocks to Venice Avenue and downtown Venice Florida. Here you will find shops, boutiques, cafes and even tennis courts and recreation area.

Venice wonderful!! Home clean but needs updated, served our purpose.

  • 3 of 5

Our Spring Break vacation was wonderful in Venice. This home held all 9 of us nicely. Location of home is great, close to all necessities and loved the close beach access. The home was clean but very, very dated. Kitchen is small space with small oven so we did not cook as much as we wanted too. Both bathrooms were very dated and small. Not enough towels for 9 people, so take extra. Due to this home rules could not set air below 72 degrees, ceiling fans and box fans ran all the time. Chairs in sun room were old and padding coming out around edges of several. Home had a small but useful charcoal grill. Pool was nice and water always at great temperature. Nice neighborhood to walk in as well. This home would be a gem if updated as well as needed landscaping!!

Nice home in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

The home is comfortable and located on a street that sees traffic about once an hour. The neighborhood is quiet and great for walking. The shopping area and recreation area are within walking distance. We had some problems in the house. The kitchen sink backed up, the pool would not heat because the water level was low due to a leak, and the phone didn't work. The rental agency took care of these problems promptly. In the two weeks we were there we saw the handyman, the plumber, and a supervisor so we were well attended. The house has comfortable seating and a good bed. We had a wait for hot water but there was enough of it. The floors are lovely terrazzo but the house had no real broom or vacuum to keep the floors in good order. The kitchen was fairly well stocked but there were very few usable glasses and no bottle opener. The HD TV was farily large for a rental home. Lots of towels and sheets available. We enjoyed are stay and don't really have any complaints about the property.

A Wonderful Fishing Trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a very restful and satisfying stay in Venice. We come here once a year to go fishing. We caught lots of fish and had lots of fun! The property was comfortable and the pool was great.

Fantastic Family Vacation July 2013

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Baycrest home in Venice Beach was very nice. The home was clean, furnishings comfortable, and had everything we needed during our stay. The bathrooms are dated and the fixtures need to be updated... but the water pressure and amount of hot water was more than adequate- even with 8 people taking showers. The ceiling fans were great and kept the house cool and comfortable even on the hottest days. The tile floors were very nice... cool & quiet, but they get a little sandy by the end of the week... a couple of rugs would help... or a broom. The house was a little farther from the beach than we would have liked. It was 0.6 of a mile to the beach... which is a nice stroll if you are just going for a walk on the beach, but a hike with chairs, cooler, beach toys, and 4 hot kids so we drove to the public beach area each day. The pool is fantastic and an awesome cool down after a day at the beach. We loved the Venice beach area... the shops were fun to browse, restaurants were fantastic (Pop's sunset grill was our favorite), and our kids fell in love with the staff at Ciao Gelato! Overall, we had a fantastic family vacation and a great experience with Vacation Rental Pros. We would rent this home again and would most certainly use Vacation Rental Pros.
