(or can walk to library for computer use) Beach time is a breeze with rolling beach cart, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, and insulated beach bag/soft cooler.

Our Venice Island Home comfortably accommodates a family of up to 6-10, but it's also perfect for 2-3 couples traveling together, or as a romantic and extra spacious getaway for two. We are happy to say that most of our guests are "repeats." Unique feature - guests can also rent a very similar 3 bedroom, 2 full bathroom home right next door in case you want to stay close to friends or family but still have your "own space." (perfect for girls getaways, guys golf trips, reunions, corporate retreats, wedding groups, extended family/friends.)
This vacation house is for quiet, low-key vacationers as year-round neighbors & other vacationers like their peace & quiet so we seek like-minded guests. no smoking. no pets. must be 25 years or older or staying with parent. Best for kids who can swim well as pool is very close to house.
Location, location, location! For a little sunset watching and live music, the home is a short walk to the very popular Sharky's ocean-front bar & restaurant and Venice Pier for fantastic fishing. We have a responsible local babysitter with reasonable rates for kids/grandkids. We are close to the island's public golf course &
tennis courts and short drive to five challenging
public and semi-private golf courses. The home is a short 5 minute walk to the beach and longer walk (8/10 mile) to the historic town center filled with Northern Italian architecture, charming boutiques, antique stores and first-rate, reasonably-priced restaurants. (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!)

Area Information
The island of Venice was just named best seaside town in US by popular "coastal living" magazine!! Venice is located in Southwest Florida, about ten miles south of Sarasota along the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico. Downtown Venice is actually an island surrounded by the Intracoastal Waterway to the west and the Gulf of Mexico to the east. Surrounded by breathtaking snow-white beaches and a picturesque town center, Venice has been named one of the best cities to retire in the United States. Visitors from all over travel to Venice to explore the spectacular bays and beaches and charming, historic town center.

The Venice area can accommodate your deepest desires to get away from it all. Spend an evening enjoying a romantic sunset on Venice Beach, then wake up early to rent a boat and share a picnic lunch on one of the private islands in the area. 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. After the theatre, enjoy a delicious dessert at one of the many area restaurants, or visit one of many nightspots throughout the area that offers dancing or live entertainers.

There are many opportunities to relax with fourteen miles of Gulf of Mexico beachfront, five major public beaches, fine shelling, fossilized sharks' tooth hunting...besides sunning, swimming,boating, fishing, golf, tennis,kayaking, scuba diving, fantastic shopping along the historic Venice Avenue, first-rate restaurants,numerous outdoor festivals/special events; and more than a dozen public parks. Charter fishing tours are available in Venice and Scuba divers love the Reef!

New to the City of Venice, the Venetian Waterway Park offers walkers, joggers, and bike riders miles of paved and beautifully landscaped sidewalk trails along the Intracoastal Waterway. Nature lovers also can enjoy birdwatching at Oscar Scherer State Park or go
canoeing down the Myakka River.

Other recreational activities include more than a dozen golf courses and eight municiple tennis courts lighted for night play. Local arts include a community theatre, art center, opera and theatre guilds, symphony orchestra, and two outstanding libraries. 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...

CLOSE TO EVERYTHING! This perfect location is close to numerous Florida "hot spots." We are about 15-45 minutes to Sarasota attractions including: Mote Marine Aquarium, Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota Jungle Gardens, Selby Botanical Gardens and the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center. About an hour drive north, you can enjoy
popular Tampa favorites including The Florida Aquarium, Adventure Island, Busch Gardens, Museum of Science and Industry, and Salvador Dali Museum. We are about an hour and a half drive to Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios in Orlando.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

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)

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)

"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
