Venice House Rental Photos and Description

Beach House w/private pool, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4 adults & 2 children)

Island of Venice house description

***Summer Beach Special 200.00 a night , 7 night minimum***

Riviera house is a delightfully updated 3 bedroom, 3 bath self catering beach house located on the Island of Venice. This is our holiday home that has a wonderful unique "Old World" Florida feel with updated amenities. I personally manage my home right down the photos of my garden on the walls. My lush tropical garden has banana trees, coconut palms, naval orange, mandarin, mango and key lime trees plus I just added a pomegranate and dragon fruit cactus and this is just the edible landscape. The inside décor is described per one guests review as aesthetically pleasing with leather couches for cleanliness. Riviera house has Verizon Fios HD package with their the fastest 50G Wi-Fi Internet access which is throughout the house and pool area. Walk 2 blocks to beach, 5 blocks to Main Street.**Walk Everywhere or bike as there are 3 bicycles provided for your use. Our pet free (NO exceptions) & non smoking home has a NEW solar heated pool including a shallow 1st step sun shelf, sized at 4 feet x 4 feet (pictured) for children & adults which is set into a tropical lush and imaginative landscape design that over looks mature Bougainvilleas and flowering plants of all kinds plus my fruit trees. The kitchen's French doors and master bedroom open to the pool's courtyard with a beautiful Pergola, providing ample shade for your outdoor dining in the huge caged lanai. My pool lanai measures 33' x 37' to add an additional 1221 sq ft of living space. The very private pool and uniquely beautiful area is surrounded with old world courtyard pavers. Our privacy fence and mature plantings make this area concealed from view to enhance it's private solitude appeal for your intimate enjoyment. (see photos). Riviera House added a new family room addition to showcase it's 50" HD TV for family movie night after a long day at the beach! Our Blue Ray player can get you access to your Vudu or Netflix account if our vast DVD collection is missing your movie choice. Showtime consortium package of 60 movie channels are included free to you in the Fios package. Master bed is a new Euro king pillow top and the 2nd & 3rd bedrooms have new plush mattresses added March 2014. The Master has it's own bathroom "en suite" and a 32" HD TV . 2nd Queen bedroom also has a 32" HD TV. 3rd full size bedroom has the 4th TV in the home but plays DVD's only. Our quiet neighborhood provides the ambiance to appreciate island sounds and lifestyle. My dining room overlooks the front circular courtyard with pavers surrounded by a thick lush tropical berm with huge Birds of Paradise, Plumeria (Lei flower), Pony Tail Palms, Coconut palms , Honeysuckle and many more. Enjoy the undiscovered Florida as Venice Island beaches have no crowds. On Florida's west coast you will be able to enjoy the warmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Loacated close to Florida attractions without staying with the swarm of tourists. To partake in 'Spring Break' madness just drive 20 mins north to Siesta Key. Then return to Venice Island's beautiful beaches that are lined with sand dunes and the sounds of the Gulf. Come in October and watch Sea turtles nesting and babies running to the water. Venice is a wonderfully quiet small beach town with restaurants and theatre just waiting to be explored. Renovated with new tile floors throughout, new modern kitchen with filtered water , new windows , appliances. Tastefully furnished with modern Ikea furniture.

About Joni Mitchell-Owner/Manager **please check calendar & provide YOUR phone #

The only place I know of to hunt for fossilized shark teeth!

We have a family competition at the beach to find the biggest shark the end of the day the person with the biggest tooth decides where we go for dinner. After dinner we love to have poker night with the whole family pool side. Since we use pretzel as chips we never really know who wins!

Joni Mitchell-Owner/Manager **please check calendar & provide YOUR phone # purchased this house in 2007

Why Joni Mitchell-Owner/Manager **please check calendar & provide YOUR phone # chose Venice

All the conveniences AND a quaint beach town. Everything is so accessible you don't waste any time in the car driving around on a quest in search of necessities or on a ferry to the beach. I especially enjoy my lush tropical garden that I continues to improve with as many tropical plants as possible. There are 2 orange trees, multiple banana trees, mango tree, dragon fruit cactus, key lime tree, coconut and pomegranate trees. It's also nice to BBQ around the pool or we like to dine around the pool with take-away and my landscaping makes it all very private !!

Dinner with all the ambiance and none of the work !!

What makes this house unique

2 blocks to the beach ....never any crowds. Venice Island beaches are still undiscovered by the masses! I'm a gardener and what I love about my house is the awesome landscaping!! I walk the yard in the morning with my cup of coffee and absorb all the marvels of the my tropical plants.

The Perfect Rental in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

After searching the state of Florida in the years following our retirement, we finally found our ideal getaway at Riviera House. The home is comfortably and tastefully decorated, with everything we needed for an ideal vacation. The owners are prompt in responding to any needs their renters might have, though there were few. We thoroughly enjoyed the many shops and fine restaurants that Venice has to offer, as well as its proximity to Sarasota. However, our favorite thing of all was relaxing by our onsite pool. It is not easy to locate such an ideal property. We look forward to vacationing there again in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Diane, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and found my home and lanai so perfect. I love my beach house and tropical gardens and enjoy sharing it with others. I try very hard to keep the unique "Old World Florida feel" at my beach house while enhancing the comfort and I am glad this agrees with you. I am so pleased to be welcoming you back next for the 2016 season. You were an absolute delight as a tenant. Warmest regards, Joni

Better than we'd imagined.

My wife and I spent the entire month of November at Riviera House and thoroughly enjoyed it. The home has been recently renovated and tastefully decorated by the owners who use it for their own vacations. The home is very comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for a nice long vacation; the heated pool and lanai were an added bonus. There is a large collection of DVDs and books, and there's nothing like relaxing by the pool reading a good book. We used the bicycles to visit all of the wonderful beaches and biked up the Legacy Trail almost to Sarasota, and also walked to the downtown area on many occasions. Most things are close by or only a very short drive away. We hardly used our vehicle while we were here.

We took in performances at the Venice Symphony, the Venice Theater, the Community Center and the local Blues Festival; all first class. There are lots of restaurants; try the Cafe Venice and Mi Pueblo. The home is well maintained and the owners are very responsive.

This is an excellent location on the Sun Coast and we can thoroughly recommend it.

We've stayed in many vacation rentals; this is one of the nicest and most comfortable.

Thank you.

Awesome Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting this beautiful home in July 2013. My family of four, two kids under 7, were looking for a summer beach vacation and this house proved to have everything we were looking for and more. This three bedroom home provided enough space for our family, with each child having their own bedroom complete with a television, which they thought was great since they do not have this at home. The house was clean, modern, and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. It is situated in a residential neighborhood so it was quiet and peaceful yet close to shops, restaurants, grocery, and of course, the beaches.

The beach is close enough to bike/walk to but we just drove, as most beaches had plenty of public parking. Caspersen and Venice beaches were the ones we hit most. Great beaches to chill and play at; we found our fair share of shark’s teeth at both beaches. Venice beach is in town and has good amenities, showers, bathrooms, snack shop, etc. Caspersen is a bit further away with less amenities but good shark tooth hunting. Riveria house has beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys which was a great convenience.

Definitely the best thing about the home was its pool. I could not get my kids out of it!! We swam in it every single day we were there. It is a good sized pool with a shallow “shelf” for those who don’t swim, to play in, or just lay in. The pool was enclosed in a lanai so we didn't worry about bugs. The patio surrounding the pool was also enclosed with patio furniture and a BBQ where we ate our lunch between swims. That pool was, without a doubt, the highlight of the vacation especially in the kids’ minds.

We definitely recommend this home for families with young children and/or if you are looking for a quiet beach town without a lot of the tourist traps associated with the larger beach towns. We hope to return in the near future to this great home.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed our beach house as I do my best to ensure an enjoyable stay. Just after your departure we added a new living room to showcase the 50' TV for family movie night. It is now finished and the additional space has greatly enhanced the already open floor plan. New photos will be posted soon. Please come back to check it out!! Thank you for taking time to review my home. Joni Owner/Manager

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful warm home. The owner has thought of everything for a relaxing stay; from the bikes we road on quiet streets to and from the beach and into town to the lounging chairs around the pool and the grill to cook outside, to a well equipped kitchen that lacked nothing. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and felt very comfortable. We would definitely rent this home again, thank you Garry and Doreen Beard.

We enjoyed our stay immensely at this property. The property was ideally located for us, you could walk, jog or bike ride around the island. We found that we only used our car when we went shopping or site seeing off the island. We spent a great deal of time relaxing in the lanai and the pool. We found the property to be well maintained and furniture comfortable. We would not hestiate to rent this property in the future. Our stay in the month of May 2012, was enjoyable and relaxing. Any questions we had were answered without hesitation and to our satisfaction. Great property. Would indeed recommend.

WONDERFUL LOCATION, November 2011 By John and Katherine, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Riviera House for the month of November, and quickly fell in love with Venice Island. We biked or walked everywhere from this house - to the theatre, the community centre, the beautiful beaches, and the shopping areas. We only used the car to go to a variety of golf courses, which were also very close. Riviera house is very nice with many upgrades. It has a beautiful, large back yard with many flowering plants, and we enjoyed relaxing in the lanai beside the pool. The open concept kitchen, dining room and living room makes for a spacious living area. The house was very clean, with ceramic tiles throughout. The kitchen was professionally redone, with lots of counter space and cupboards. The master bedroom is large, with its own on-suite and walk-in closet. The house was well furnished - we had everything we needed. It is on a quiet street. The owners are very well organized, and respond quickly to any questions. We enjoyed our month very much and hope to return in 2012!

Hunting for fossilized shark teeth is a must!! We also like to get an ice cream cone and walk the North Jetty at sunset looking for Dolphin and Manatee as they are visible feeding that time of night. There is also a Flying Trapeze school if you like a challenge. Sight seeing rides at local airport are available and parasailing is offered . Jet ski and boat rentals are also a must. New zip line attraction is offered for a day trip. Busch Gardens is an hour away and Disney or Universal studios is 2 hours by car so these are great day trips too.
