(note- we are close to the island's tiny airport - there is serious noise restrictions and the noise won't bother you at all - the opposite is true - this is an extremely quiet residential area and you will sleep well! - the island airport is restricted to small daytime medical/private flights & it has a great breakfast/lunch diner be sure to try the omelets!)
Venice is located in Southwest Florida, about ten miles south of Sarasota along the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico.

When the sea air has calmed your soul, further pamper yourself with a massage or two followed by
a gourmet dinner at one of the area's many reasonably priced restaurants. The Venice Little Theatre is a wonderful place to see some of the area's finest performances at affordable ticket prices of approximately $22 each.

Venice's historic district is filled with gorgeous Mediterranean Revival and Northern Italian architecture, charming gift shops, boutiques, antique stores, and many restaurants and coffee houses.
Shopping anyone' It's easy to shop til you drop anywhere in the greater Venice area, but your shopping days won't be complete until you've ventured through the many antique shops on Miami Avenue in Downtown Venice. Stop for a delicious lunch at an outdoor cafe, stop for an afternoon icecream cone or sweets at one of many inviting treat shops. When the shops have closed, head for an evening stroll,listening to the waves as you plan tomorrow's adventures...

Owner Supplied Testimonials
Dear Owners, Everything was just perfect. This was our first time here - you were highly recommended by my inlaws. The house is nicely decorated and very well stocked. I liked that you supplied beach towels, toys, beach chairs, beach umbrellas- even a rolling cart. It really seems like no one else supplies these big items so we really appreciated the convenience & thoughtfulness. We have 4 kids with a wide variety of ages plus grandparents along. It's hard to believe we were able to keep everyone happy with the variety of activities. Next year we'll use your place right next door for more relatives!!!
thanks so much for thinking of all of the details,
Meghan & Michael Dunne (April 2010)
The only thing I couldn't find was a salad spinner - but other than that you have a well-stocked, beautiful place! (and I'm very picky according to my better half:).) Loved the beach & the lovely downtown was a rare treat. Helen & Stan (July 5, 2010)
"We just got back from Venice and wanted to tell you the house looked beautiful! loved the renovations - the kitchen especially - and we really enjoyed being able to walk to everything."
- Molly and Tom O'Brien
"Had fantastic time - thank you! We walked to beach every morning, biked around the island, and hit Sharky's for sunsets almost every night. We'll be back." - Nancy and Jeff; Katie and Bryan; Nashville TN
- "The house worked out perfect for us! We had family in for part of it -- and the 3 bedrooms worked out well. Had plenty of space. Loved the granite in the kitchen and decor was really nice. See ya next Feb.:). Nan Johnson & Family, Atlanta
