Sunset Villa is a single family home located only minutes away from popular Sharky`s restaurant (and the newly opened Fin's), Shamrock Park, Legacy Bike Trail, downtown shopping on Venice Island, the Venice Fishing Pier and several blocks from the beach. It features two bedrooms and two baths plus a bonus Florida room with a full sized comfy sofa bed as well as a Simmons Dream Sleep folding twin bed which can be put anywhere. The yard is fully fenced.
Sunset Villa has a split floor plan with each bedroom separated by the living room and kitchen. Provided are many amenities to make your vacation relaxing, including beach chairs, beach umbrella, shark's tooth strainer and even two beach cruiser bicycles.
On one side of Sunset Villa is the master suite with a pocket door that closes creating a cozy and private retreat from the rest of the home. The master bedroom features a comfortable King size bed and a walk-in closet with plenty of room for your clothes. The master bathroom has a bath tub and shower. Feel extra pampered after your shower with the plush spa towels and waffle cotton spa robe provided for you during your stay.
The second bedroom includes a Queen sized bed and a roomy closet for all of those new “Shark's Tooth Capital” t-shirts. It also boasts its own bathroom with a walk-in shower just outside the room.
The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, gadgets and updated appliances – including dishwasher. Also included are basic spices, coffee and sugar to get you started.
The living room lets you sit back and relax between all of that hard work of laying on the beach and features HDTV with loads of HD channels and a DVR for recording your favorite shows while you are out as well as wireless Internet access (Free WiFi). Also included is an Internet cordless telephone which features free unlimited local and national calling in the US. No need to worry about cell phone charges or signal coverage with your cell phone!
The back patio invites you to cook on the propane grill and dine outside while enjoying the Florida sunshine or comfortable nights under the palm trees while being serenaded by tree frogs and crickets. A huge Mango tree hangs over from the yard next door and drops ripened Mangoes into the yard. Relax there and watch your kids or pets play in the fenced yard, chasing the cute little geckos.
Also available for you are a full sized washer and dryer for drying those wet bathing suits, washing those towels you were sitting on at the beach or getting your clothes cleaned of one adventure and ready for the next.
Sunset Villa has ceiling fans in the living room, dining room and eat-in kitchen. Also for your convenience is a roomy garage with inside entrance to the house and an automatic garage door opener is provided for your use.
The back yard is fully fenced so no need to have to walk the dog several times a day - although you probably won't mind strolling around the lovely quiet neighborhood.
Proximity to the Gulf of Mexico brings almost constant breezes to this lovely home. Throw open all the windows and the sliding glass door and enjoy the fresh ocean air while you sip your coffee! Sunset Villa is bordered by a tropical lot on one side which provides lots of birds and wildlife to be observed and enjoyed.
Visit beautiful Venice Island only 3 minutes north. Shop, eat and enjoy the many wonderful activities only minutes away, including the Venice Rookery where you can see Bald Eagles and other exotic large birds, the Dome Flea Market, the weekly Venice Farmer's Market, Warm Mineral Springs (just re-opened in March 2014) or travel 20 minutes north to Sarasota for the Mote Marine Aquarium or Myakka River Park where you can see alligators in their natural habitat from an air boat.
Venice, Florida is known as the 'Shark's Tooth Capital of the World' and your vacation paradise is a short 4 minute ride to a ferry which will take you on a four minute boat trip to Manasota Key (passes provided) or you are minutes from Caspersen Beach where you can scoop shark's teeth right out of the shallows. Don't worry, these teeth aren't new, they're prehistoric.
We use a keyless entry for easy and secure access to the house. There are no cleaning people or contractors who will have a key to the house. As the property owners, we respect your privacy and value your security.
Venice is a very beautiful and laid back city and you're sure to meet other friendly people biking and walking as you take a stroll or walk your dog. The local area has several dog parks and dog beaches where your pooch can run free.
