Plantation Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo-ground floor, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 4-6 w/lake, sun & golf course view

We've enjoyed visiting Venice for many years and recently decided to purchase a beautiful golf course condo. The area offers a great mix of city amenities, including the Venice Theater, a YMCA and access to excellent healthcare, while providing a relaxing feel of a small beach resort town. Venice has great shopping, excellent seafood restaurants and top notch recreation facilities. Our condo is located in the meticulously landscaped Plantation Golf & Country Club community. Many more high quality and affordable golf courses are nearby.

Our west facing lanai and patio provides a wide vista that overlooks a small lake on the Bobcat course. It's a fantastic place to watch a variety of tropical birds (and play 'find the alligator') over breakfast or anytime. The nature opportunities of the local State Parks and bird aviary are incredible and the beaches are World Class. One of our favorite activities is walking on the beaches, soaking up the sunshine as the gulf breeze and sea sounds sweep over us. Yes, we are a little shark's tooth crazy. We've even had some fantastic luck hunting for them at night by flashlight!

We live in Ohio and work full time hoping that some year in the future, we will be able to retire to our 'Ibis Paradise'. Because we expect to live there, we decided to incorporate high quality materials in the condo's renovation project. You'll find granite sink tops (dual sinks in the master), new raised vanities, all new faucets, new quiet and effective bathroom fans, increased lighting, new high quality shower doors and a beautiful new walk-in tiled shower in the master bathroom. We even purchased the taller, more comfortable, toilets for each bath. Other improvements include new high quality wall-to-wall carpeting in both bedrooms, new vertical blinds and new paint on the walls and ceilings. Even the air conditioning unit is new.

Some other activities we look forward to are going to Sharky's Pier for dinner, live music and a drink. Or a short drive to Nokomis Groves for a cone of their famous orange ice cream, yum yum! But the best part about our Venice home is that we don't have to go anywhere to experience the amazing sunsets that unravel each evening. At cocktail hour, we can lift our glasses to toast the setting, burnt orange, sun as we dine on our own lanai.

We invite you to come to Venice and experience our little piece of heaven.

About Mike

This year will be our 33th wedding anniversary. Hoping for another 30+. We enjoy family (including our new granddaughter), travel, golf and walking the gulf beaches. Ever heard of geocaching? As we search for our next cache, we are outdoors and seeing unique sites and terrain, discovering Venice's history and experiencing southwest Florida's flora and fauna.

Mike purchased this condo in 2011

Why Mike chose Plantation

We've had family members living in the Venice gulf coast area for 50+ years. Our Florida vacations with the children growing up were great, no matter the time of year. Each season has its treasures that make it unique. Warm Gulf waters for swimming, Manatee viewing, baby sea turtles hatching, river canoeing, orange harvest season and kite flying!! Very relaxing.... After viewing tons of locations in Venice, we were thrilled with this first floor condo because of its beautiful westward view and the spacious, uncrowded feeling we have away from our neighbors.

What makes this condo unique

The Plantation is a highly maintained golf resort community that is lush with tropical plants, flowers and mature trees. The environment attracts a wonderful variety of colorful birds for viewing. Many of our sidewalk and parking areas are shaded for comfortable walks or leisurely bike riding. No traffic issues here-even in high season. We selected our ground floor condo because of the wonderful lanai and patio view of the lake and golf course and its peaceful, quiet location. We welcome you to come and share our vacation home.

Such thoughtful owners

  • 5 of 5
My new husband and my two sons and I stayed at this property for our "family moon" and I can't say enough positive things! The property is beautiful, very clean, and well kept. The kitchen is well stocked and allowed me to cook many meals for our family to save our money for more adventurous outings. The owners have really been so thoughtful in stocking the property - plenty of towels, dish cloths, magazines, books, restaurant guide, blankets, coolers, I could go on and on. The property manager and owners are extremely helpful and kind, nearby beaches are beautiful, condo pool is relaxing, so glad we made this choice.

Perfect Vacation Spot for a family!

  • 5 of 5
Our family was overjoyed upon arrival to the condo as there was more room than we anticipated. The views of the pond were beautiful. The unit itself was very clean and stocked with all of the small appliances, bedding, towels and seating we needed to enjoy our annual family vacation. The pool was nice and warm; very quiet.

A Month in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful experience staying at this condo for the month of July while we hunted for our own condo. In fact, we were so happy staying in a condo within the Plantation Golf and Country Club that we purchased one of our own which we look forward to spending time at during the winter months. The Plantation is well maintained, very nicely landscaped and conveniently located. Farmington Vistas (condo community within the Plantation) has a good-sized heated pool and a well-stocked library which we used on a regular basis. Many of the roads have sidewalks or a designated lane for walking/biking. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful with suggestions if we asked for advice. We really like Venice and the area because there are many great beaches, golf courses, restaurants and shops to choose from.

The condo was exactly as it appeared in the pictures. It was very clean and nicely decorated; it also was well stocked with good quality linens, necessary beach gear, two TV's and related equipment and all the necessities you might need in the kitchen. In short, we were totally comfortable from the start and felt very much at home. For us, the best part of the condo was the fact that it is light and bright and the view is fantastic! We would sit on the patio at the end of each day taking in the view and watching a bird or two feed along the water's edge as we waited for the sun to set. Very relaxing...

From our first communication, the owner was very helpful and thorough. The process of renting the condo went along very smoothly. It was obvious that the owners want their guests to be completely satisfied because they paid attention to every detail that would ensure an enjoyable stay.

We would most definitely highly recommend a stay at Ibis Paradise!

Can't wait to return!

Can't wait to return!

This condo is even prettier than the pictures. We found the rooms clean and modern, and the extras such as beautiful beach towels, beach chairs and a nice tall umbrella were very appreciated. With the nice sliders, we did not have to use the air conditioning until the last day, and it worked perfectly. There was always enough hot water for showering and washing clothes! The king sized bed is another plus for this well-maintained home away from home. Another plus is the complex pool. In May, I had the pool almost to myself and was able to swim laps every morning.

The owner was very helpful and answered all questions via phone and/or e-mail. The restaurants are wonderful. For example, Robbi's Reef, The Fish House and my husband's favorite Mi Pueblo. Try Bud's in Venice for home made breakfasts and lunches and The Breakfast Place in Nokomis for a quaint breakfast before visiting the wonderful Tervice Tumbler location on the same side of 41. The shops in Venice (on the island) are wonderful. I suggest checking out Dick's Shoes; I bought most of my gifts for myself and friends from a broad selection of slip ons and cute flip flops.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Ibis Paradise! The pictures are exactly what you see and the view was spectacular! Even saw a small alligator in the lake. It was so quiet and relaxing. The condo was clean and immaculate, everything you need. Mike and Cindy were so helpful and answered any questions we had. We enjoyed Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish Grill on Wednesdays. Mi Pueblo restaurant had very good Mexican food! We would recommend this condo to our friends and we would definitely stay again.
