John Bolger purchased this House in 2016
Why John Bolger chose Venice
Renovated is 2016. Purchased to rent and use for our family as a vacation/summer home. We have been vacationing to Venice since our parents bought a condo on Venice Beach in 2006. Great place for families and pets. Safe environment and can get everywhere by foot or bike. Paved bike trails to Sarasota. We have lived previously in Ft. Lauderdale and have traveled all over the State of Florida. There is no place else in Florida that has the charm of Venice!
What makes this House unique
Great neighborhood on a quiet road. Close to great restaurants and live theatre. Take your dog to Brohard Paw Park Beach only 1.5 miles away. The legacy trail is an old railway that starts at the Old Venice Train Depot and has a paved walking/bike path for 11 miles to Sarasota. You can go hunting for shark tooth fossils on Caspersen Beach. Sarasota is 45 minutes away. Disney World is 2 hours.

Great location & privacy
This was our first visit as a family to Venice.. Johns home was the perfect place for us! Proximity to dining and beaches, and the privacy the backyard offered were second to none.
John was very responsive, and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed.
We look forward to visiting this property again in the near future!
Home away from home
This was one of the best homes we have rented. John was very quick to answer any questions and he also had suggestions for thing to do in the area. The bikes we an added bonus, as our son rode down to the pier every am to go fishing.
Wonderful week in Venice!
We head to Venice periodically to visit friends and enjoy the quiet, relaxing beach lifestyle. This is our first time renting at this location and it was ideal--only few blocks walking distance from our friends' home and easy beach access--a perfect location. In addition, the house is lovely, clean, and well-appointed. Everything we needed was available and in good operating order. Best of all, the owner is friendly, easy to communicate with, and gives detailed instructions and information about the house and town. Nothing is left to chance. We had a wonderful time and we will definitely be back in 2019!
We loved everything about this house and yard!
Our experience in Venice at this property was wonderful. We plan to return for the same amount of time next year. The house is beautifully updated. The furnishings met all of our needs. The lanai with pool is a perfect spot for morning coffee. The backyard is fenced in and suitable for our small dogs. We love the location. This home is a half mile walk to one beach and close to Caspersen, Venice and Sharky’s beaches and pier. It is a mile walk to downtown Venice. The owners are fabulous. They were quick to respond to our questions and met all of our needs. You will love staying in Venice at the Bolgers home.
Couldn’t have asked for a nicer home for our visit to Venice.
We are returning visitors to the Island, and found John’s place to be exactly what we wanted for our stay. Everything is updated and super clean, and it just felt like home our entire stay. Neighbors and area are very welcoming, and we will be back and hope to stay yet once again.
You will be happy staying at this Venice Island home 😊🌞🌞🌞
Very nice, contemporary house. Clean and well maintained. Lovely heated pool and spa, which we used everyday. Also, close to the beach. Owner was very helpful when needed. Replied quickly by text. I would highly recommend this property and Venice Island. Lots of nice restaurants, such as Croissants & Company, Blu Island Bistro, Abby's on Miami (excellent food and service), etc. And the downtown area has a lot of shops. Bealls, fast food and grocery stores are close. We had a very nice, relaxing time, and hated to go home.
Just south of Sarasota along Florida’s white-sanded Gulf Coast, Venice offers 14 miles of beaches from Casey Key to Manasota Key and plenty of recreational opportunities, including swimming, sunbathing, fishing and boating. Shelling is also a favorite pastime, and fossilized shark's teeth can be found in abundance by sifting through the sand. Golfers enjoy excellent courses in the greater Venice area. Bikers can access the legacy trail, a 10.8-mile paved trail in Sarasota County, Florida running between Sarasota near Palmer Ranch and Venice. It opened in 2008 along the area's historic rail corridor. Venice also is a Florida Main Street City – its downtown graced by northern Italian architecture and beautifully landscaped boulevards that date to the original city plans of 1925 and reminiscent of the Italian city whose name it borrowed.
