About the area

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. --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. Enjoy walking the neighborhood, or take the bicycles that we provide at the houses for you. Ride to the water or Shamrock Park for Tennis basketball or nature. See the Gopher turtles walk by, the fantastic birds, the great park for the children to play too. Bathrooms and access to the Legacy trail to the local beaches or all the way to Sarasota! Bring a hat, sunblock and plenty of water to stay hydrated! So many good ones... go to Yelp for Venice,but you must go to Sharkeys & Fins on the Pier! Beautiful location right on the gulf, fantastic sunsets on the roof!!!

“What a "fun" place!”

Reviewed 1 Mar 2016

Location, location, location! This well-equipped neat and cozy beach house is close to everything you'd ever want to do in Florida. Whether it's shopping, biking, dining, beach going, sightseeing, having a picnic, tennis, etc., you are in close proximity to it! We stayed for two months (Jan. And Feb.) and enjoyed every minute! Dee was so accommodating! If we needed anything or wanted anything at all, she was there with it faster than a speeding bullet! She really cares about her renters and caters to all of your needs, assuring that your time spent in her rental is relaxing and wanting for nothing. (Thank you, Dee!)

Owner's reply: Thank you Peg! I am so glad that you had a great stay and hope that you got to use the bikes and the kayaks too! Spring will be upon us soon with even better weather! Venice is such a great vacation spot all year round!

“Clean getaway”

Reviewed 20 Dec 2015

Very clean home that is appointed very nicely. Enjoyed the ferry and the shark teeth hunting. Large fenced in backyard was awesome for our dog.didn't have time to take advantage of kayaks or bikes,maybe next time.

Owner's reply: Thank you David and glad you had a great stay! Hope you found lots of sharks teeth and hope you'll stay again in the future! Regards Dee

“Fabulous Vacation”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2015

We had the most excellent time in South Venice! This has to be the Gulf Region's best kept secret. The accommodations were great! We thoroughly enjoyed the ferry and private beach access. On Wednesday we visited Siesta Key's public beach because the private beach was closed and we couldn't wait to return to Venice! The home has everything you need from kitchen ware to beach accessories. The area offers traditional commercial retailers but we love exploring the local shops in downtown Venice and catering the local establishments like Robbie's Reef and Scoops Ice Cream! Dee was especially communicative from the beginning to the end of our stay!!! We had new experiences, formed new friendships with area residents, and loved every minute of what has been, so far, the best family vacation ever!

Owner's reply: Sounds like you had a lot of fun! On Wednesdays during the summer the ferry to the private beach is closed, but obviously it gave you the change to explore Siesta Key beach, another great experience! We always like to support the small retailers too! There is a great selection in the historical down town Venice, I also have to mention the great farmer's market there on Saturdays! Hope to have you back next year! Regards Dee

“Great Rental with a Great Location”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2015

This was a great place to spend the week. The house was clean and spacious. They provided everything from linens and towels to kitchen supplies. The bikes and kayaks were a plus too! We brought our two dogs who had plenty of room to run in the large, fenced-in backyard. In addition, the Brohard paw park and beach were just up the street about a 5 min drive. The house is near many shopping plazas and restaurants. We also went to Siesta Key a few time during the week, which was a quick 20 min drive up the road. The location was perfect. The private island and ferry were very nice as well. It was nice to get away from the crowded beaches and relax at the private island, which was very clean and the water was crystal clear. This was a wonderful week all-in-all. Dee made the rental process very easy and provide thorough communication along the way, giving a trustworthy feeling. Great rental with great owners.

Owner's reply: Crystal clear water and uncrowded beach - our family loves it too! Fun times and so glad that you enjoyed our home! It's a wonderful spot with so much to do or nothing if you choose! Enjoy the rest of the summer and look forward to hearing from you for your next Venice vacation! Regards Dee

“Wonderul home, wonderful location!”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

Let me first start by saying I was impressed by the communication from Dee. It was always prompt and precise. The home was a good value, and provided all our needs. It was well maintained, well manicured, an asset in the neighborhood. The provision of beach chairs and umbrellas and bikes was an excellent addition to the home. We cannot say enough about the place, or its owners!

Owner's reply: Thank you Bruce! We try to provide everything that you need for complete enjoyment of the beach - bring your own drink of course!!! We hope you got to enjoy the bikes and kayaks too as there are some great places for both of those activities close to the house! We'd love to have you back for your next stay in Venice!

“Great home away from home!”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2015

This is my first time renting a vacation home. I was not disappointed. The house is in a good neighborhood close to a private beach that we had access to. That beach was the best we visited during the whole stay. The house was very clean and everything worked well. There is a good sized garage, a fenced in backyard, and a nice sun room where my sister had her morning coffee every day. The living room furniture was very comfortable. Dee was very easy to work with. I would recommend staying in her properties.

Owner's reply: Hope you got to use the bikes and kayaks too! There are some great kayaking spots locally and the biking trails go for miles. You can ride along side the inter-coastal and watch the boats go by! Of course there are plenty of places locally to rent boats and then you can be one of those boaters yourself! We'd love to host you again so you can enjoy more of what Venice has to offer!! regards Dee

This is simply a beautiful house.Everting new and up-to-date. Location,location, location. Right by the south venice beach ferry and close to several other beaches. Close to shopping, good food and within a few miles to downtown south Venice.

“A perfect experience”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2014

We spent just a few days in the house, but found it to be exactly as described: very clean and commodious. Furniture and beds are modern and comfortable, there are plenty of linens and the kitchen is reasonably well stocked. The lanai is great and the yard is huge. We didn't have a chance to take out the kayaks and bikes, but they appear to be in perfectly fine condition. We also didn't have time to take the ferry to the private beach, but we talked to the ferry 'captain' for a while who raved about the peace and tranquility to be found across the channel. Next time. In short, the house exceeded all our expectations. We hope to rent it again on our next trip to Venice.

Owner's reply: Sorry it was such a shirt visit and that you didn't have time for kayaking or bikes. The beach and bike paths are wonderful, as is the boat ride! We would love to have you back any time!
