This 2/2 updated 50's home retains its old time cottage charm with heart of pine floors and retro baths. The entry porch has double French doors into the living area. The kitchen is well equipped with a 9’bar with 4 stools opening to the dining area and living room with original fireplace. One bedroom has a king size bed, ensuite full bath, large closet and door to the back patio. The second bedroom is larger with a twin size beds situated across from the second bath with shower. A 32' flat screen LED TV in each bedroom with cable and wi-fi included. The convenient laundry is tucked between the two bedrooms. The back patio has an area set up for alfresco dining. The large fenced back yard is big enough to park a boat or a visitor’s RV.
There is so much to do in Venice. From free yoga on the beach to biking on trails all the way to Sarasota. You need never be bored and this island home is in the heart of it all – close to beach and downtown, parks and library. A perfect location!

we rented this house for the month of April. we loved the location, loved the fenced yard for our dog, loved the bikes and Venice Beach. loved walking to town for a meal or activities. loved the library, which has a whole room of books for sale, so there was no need for a library card.
Great little house in a superb location. Easy walk to downtown, the library, the beach and even Publix. The owners were very friendly and responsive when we asked about bicycles they went out and bought two brand new ones which we used every day during our 3 month stay. We had everything we needed and very friendly helpful owners.
I had the pleasure of renting this lovely home for 4 months. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It's open floor plan and great windows made for a light and airy living space. I really enjoyed its "old Florida" charm -- something that's harder and harder to find in Venice these days. The location is perfect! I was able to walk or ride my bike to anyplace on the Island! The neighborhood is beautiful -- the Venice Arboretum in one block away and a lovely place for an early morning or late afternoon stroll. The owners are very professional and helpful. I highly recommend this home if you are looking for a comfy, homey, light and airy home!
The house is a small 2 bedroom ranch with an attached small apartment occupied by a year round tenant. The tenant is a nice fellow whom we seldom saw and was never an issue. The kitchen was fully adequate with lots of counter space. That is something we haven't seen in many other rentals. The dinning area is great for 4 people. The living room is nice for viewing TV. There is a front porch that is perfect except for sunset when the sun is just too bright. The bedrooms are what one would expect. The backyard is huge in comparison to other houses in the neighborhood. There is a double gate allowing a vehicle/camper access to the back yard which is fully fenced in. Everything in the photos and descriptions is accurate. The location is great. It is 4 blocks to both the ocean and downtown. Publix is only 4 blocks away. There is a really nice park one block away. We had several interactions with the owners and they were very responsive to our needs. Overall this is a really great place in Venice.
We stayed in this house for 2.5 months and loved every minute. The rental is even better than shown in the pictures, has everything you need and a fabulous location. The owners are very responsive if you have any problems during your stay.
We had never been to Venice before and fell in love with it. We bought a house and will now be here year round. There is so much to do from bike trails to free concerts on the beach and in town, parades, fabulous farmers market and Saturdays to yoga on the beach.
This is truly paradise and the right house to be in to experience it.
The house was just as described.... very comfortable, clean land charming... just like the photos! We had a wonderful stay in Venice and loved this location - walking distance to town and also a beautiful walk to the beach. The Sweets were very helpful and easy to work with...we would highly recommend this house. Joan and Bob
