Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

The newly constructed pool with in-pool sun deck is ready for your enjoyment. The construction of the pool, paver deck and screen enclosure is finished. Landscaping is next.

There is no shortage of “Beach House” feel in this charming Venice home. From the moment you step in the front door you will think you are at a beach house. The owners have taken great interest (and obvious enjoyment) in decorating this home with their creative talent. This is a newer home built with an open-concept approach and has vaulted ceilings for added brightness and spacious feel. The furnishings and every ounce of unique décor are perfectly coordinated against the backdrop of the soothing pastel wall colors. You will have no choice but to relax here.

I would wonder if the owners enthusiasm for decorating was inspired by the proximity of this home to the Private Beach just one-half of a mile down the road which is an easy 8-10 minute walk. Take all of your beach towels and toys in the supplied beach cart or ride the bicycles (available for your use) and get there quicker!! Upon you arrival to the waterway you will be greeted by the Captain who will take you across the Intracoastal Waterway by ferry to the secluded Private Beach. If you are looking for a peaceful beach, this is the one. Requiring an annual paid pass (furnished!), this beach is far less traveled. You can also use the kayaks located at this home to explore the mangroves and sea life. The kayaks are each equipped with a wheeled cart for easy transport by foot to the boat launch located as you enter the private beach property. Keep your eyes open for manatee and dolphins. It would not be rare to see them. In shallow water you may even find inhabited Conch shells.

Whether you spent a pleasant day at the beach lounging and shelling, or maybe you found adventure with the bicycles or kayaks, you will find peace and tranquility upon your arrival back home. The home has two inviting bedrooms with the master having its own en-suite bathroom featuring a soaking tub. There is plenty of room to spread out with your choice of family room (featuring queen-size sleeper sofa) or living room to relax and put your feet up. The kitchen overlooks the living room for continued interaction and conversation during meal preparation. Enjoy a peaceful dinner on the lanai overlooking the undeveloped green space behind the home; a residence for native birds and gopher tortoise.

This warm and inviting home welcomes you and your family. Bring Spot or Rover too. Yes, well behaved dogs are welcome! Although there is no indication that dogs are allowed as this home is meticulously maintained.

Why Angie Lambrecht of Florida Coastal Realty & Rentals chose Venice

We as homeowners, have vacationed annually on Florida's Gulf Coast for several years staying as far north as Tampa and south as far as Fort Myers. We found ourselves wanting to return to Venice time and time again. Venice has that "small town" feel yet with the conveniences of the grocery stores and department stores we have come to rely on. Historical downtown Venice offers quaint shops and restaurants and surrounds Centennial Park which hosts festivals, farmers markets, and "Music in the Park." Venice also has miles and miles of public beaches, beach-side parks with paved paths, and even a "dog beach."

The decision to purchase a home in Venice came easy. We knew this was our "forever" destination. Our search was short with discovery of this house. Upon entering we knew we were home. The home was bright and refreshing. And the short half-mile walk to the private beach to shell or kayak was unbeatable.

What makes this house unique

This home offers the benefit of walking to the Private Beach or walking with the provided kayaks to the private boat launch only 1/2 miles away; 8-10 minute walk.

This home is also pet friendly. Although meticulously maintained so it is not evident. We have always had difficulty finding accommodations that would enable our dogs to travel with us. We found it a relief to own a home in our favorite vacation destination. It is a pleasure make it available for others traveling with there own four legged family members.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed in this beautifully decorated home from Dec 23 to Jan 2. We had a welcomed feeling the minute we drove in the driveway and saw the nice wreath hanging on the door, then saw the small Christmas tree standing on the counter after walking into the house. We drove from Wisconsin and didn't have room for a tree in our van, so our kids were happy to see it. The house was equipped with everything we needed to go to beach from an umbrella, chairs, and mat to pails, shark tooth shovels, even large beach towels. The ferry was close and very nice. Unfortunately, the pool was not quite completed when we were there, but it will make it great addition for future guests. The house was stocked with everything we needed to cook, sleep, and play. Wonderfully decorated. You knew you were in Florida.

South Venice rental with ferry pass and kayaks

  • 4 of 5

Just leaving fort Myers now. We had a great stay. The house is a great little house. We stayed with our four youngest and had a great time. We used the kayaks almost everyday. They were a lot of fun. We did find that if you position the wheels more towards center they pull much easier.

The south Venice beach ferry was great. We went over several times. Do note however, the pass is good for 6 people only. That is what we had so all good. However, if you have anyone extra with you they are very strict on this. Also the beach cart, which is awesome( I think I'll get one when I get home to mn) is not allowed on the ferry. Also very strict on this. We used it when we went to north Venice beach. It was great.

The house was very clean and had pretty much everything we needed. The little back porch was very enjoyable and we had family game and movie night every night. Nice quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. We also enjoyed the bikes. They are very tall and our youngest couldn't ride. We thought about renting an extra but never got around to it. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this rental. Thanks for sharing!

Owner's Response: I contacted former guest Mary regarding her "less than 5 star review." I wanted to understand how I could improve her experience to earn a five star review in the future. Her reply to me was: "Everything was great. I am not sure why I only gave a 4 star rating and didn't intend to. The flexibility of your policy for the arrival day made our vacation possible where as other homes were not flexible. Very nice home with all needed amenities. Kayaks were wonderful. Vacation was great. I would return again." Guest satisfaction and enjoyment is always my top priority. If I could improve something based on this review I would! Angie Lambrecht, Property Manager

Very nice home and layout

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. The layout was perfect for two couples with the bedrooms on opposite sides of the house. It is nicely decorated and spacious. The only negative is we wished we had an enclosed shower in the master bathroom ensuite. Other then that it was perfect. It is close to the private South Venice beach, shops, malls, restaurants and downtown Venice.

Great Beach - Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This house is the best equipped ! Excellent kayaks, bicycles, games, fast internet, books, plenty of linens, kitchen equipment, small office supplies. Beautiful beach theme decor. A pontoon ferry boat takes you to the best private beach. Very convenient to shopping and services. Friendly neighbors and quiet streets for walking and bike riding. Near dog beach and dog park too. Exceptional service by managers. I love South Venice.

Charming and comfy

  • 5 of 5

Every detail gets attention in this lovely property. We enjoyed the ferry to the private beach and the close proximity to everything that mattered to us, restaurants, grocery stores, I-75, etc. The house was squeaky clean. The queen beds were soooo comfortable. The deep funky bath tub in the master bedroom was so interesting. Great to steep in after a long day at the beach. The beach decorating theme was clever and fun. I especially loved the largish wooden wall hangings, nautical theme, throughout the house. If the readers of this review haven't enjoyed the private ferry you are missing a unique experience. We didn't get to the bikes and kayaks because we were too busy though we did use the sand flea rake at the beach (for shark teeth). Everything advertised and described in the information offered is spot on. Thanks, Angie, for your efforts in delivering on what you advertise. Your house was everything we could have hoped for. We enjoyed every minute. We had an absolute blast. Thank You. Suzanne
