Overview

Venice Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful views from this recently remodeled bayfront cottage. New paint, furniture, and 47' LCD hi def tv are just a part of this remodel. This modest and clean cottage lies along the northern shore line of Dona Bay, enjoying the same views and setting as the neighborhood of multi million dollar homes. The views and atmosphere are spectacular.

The recently remodeled cottage has two bedrooms. One with a pillowtop queen bed and the other with two single beds that could be put together as one big bed. Each bedroom has cable tv. There is also a separate dining room, an eat in kitchen, living room, laundry, and two baths. It has Verizon FIOS 47' hi def tv and high speed wireless internet. The home sits about 50 feet off the shore line providing up close waterfront views from most rooms of the cottage. The home has it's own private boat dock with a boat lift. Rental boats nearby.

Enjoy boating, fishing or crabbing on your private dock with boat lift. Canoe or kayak from Oscar Scherer State Park. Boat rentals nearby. Beaches within 1.5 miles. Bicycle to the beach or public tennis courts, which are both about one and a half mile away.

Many fine restaurants in the area. Many beautiful golf courses to choose from. Rent a boat, windsurf, parasail or charter fishing nearby. Shell and shark's tooth hunt on the famous Casperson Beach. A ten minute drive to Sarasota and 50 minutes to Tampa (Busch Gardens and Adventure Island), and 1 hour 45 minutes to all of the Orlando attractions. Yes, I mean Disney and much more.

There is no smoking permitted on the property, inside or outside. Pets may be accepted with additional deposit OR credit card on file. Please inquire about options for parties of more than four.

The cottage is the downstairs unit of a duplex. The upstairs unit is rented from the first week of January through the end of March to a couple in their 70 s with a standard poodle. They have been renting the upstairs unit for fifteen consecutive years. I live next door and can assure you they are a quiet couple and the dog rarely barks. Otherwise, I would not have had them as my neighbor and tenant for the last fifteen years. The upstairs is not occupied during any of the remaining months. It is then like a single family house from April through early January.

About The Owner

We live next door and have since 1994. We bought the cottage as a rental and have enjoyed meeting different people over the years. You can rest assured that the cottage guests will be well taken care of without ever me being an intrusion. We take pride in the cottage being next to our family home and we go above and beyond to keep every guest happy. If there is a problem, let me know so we can do our best to remedy it.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1996

Why The Owner chose Venice

Did you see the views? It is an extension of our own home being right next door so we enjoy the increased frontage along Dona Bay, not to mention the investment aspect of it.

What makes this cottage unique

Loved our Stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Bayfront Cottage in November of 2014. For a “cottage”, it is quite spacious. We come often to the Venice area, and this may have been the cleanest house I have stayed in. The bath towels, sheets and all linens were new and of high quality. The kitchen appliances, bathrooms, etc. were all sparkling clean. The house smelled nice and fresh, unlike the musty smell you find in many Florida homes. Great large screen TV!! The owner lives next door, but he is so careful not to invade on your privacy at all. Yet if there is anything you need, he is quick to make sure you are happy. The location is great for fans of Nokomis Beach and Pop’s Sunset Grill; you don’t even need to go out onto 41. If you have kayaks or a boat, this would be an ideal place to stay.

Perfect Location, Unbelievable Views

  • 5 of 5
We spent time in December at this house. It is even better than the pictures can show. The views of the bay and wildlife were wonderful. The house is clean, bright and spacious with everything you would want. Close to downtown Venice and Venice Beach although we liked Nokomis Beach even more. The location and views made it the perfect choice for us. We spent so much of our time at the picnic table in the back yard along the waters edge eating, chatting and relaxing. The owner was super. Hope to come back again soon. We hope to make it back this summer for a week or two.

Bayfront Home

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in this delightful bayfront home. It's spacious, light and airy. We felt right at home as soon as we arrived. The view is delightful with many water birds and dolphin to enjoy. The owner was most accommodating answering our questions and telling about attractions in the area. It's a super location, close to shopping, restaurants, attractions and downtown Venice. We look forward to returning next year.

Bay Front Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here in April. The cottage was exactly as described and met all our expections.
The place was well kept and furnished. the photos in the add show exactly what to expect. We especially enjoyed the water views and the tranquility of the location. It is a short travel distance to beaches, restaurants, and shopping. Communication with the owner was very easy and comfortable. Our favorite restaurant in the area is the Crow's Nest in Venice. Great food either up or downstairs; nice water view upstairs. I would recommend this rental highly.
