Overview

South Venice 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 34th 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 South Venice

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.

A place missed deeply

  • 5 of 5

We spent the first part of April in this well-equipped, beautiful and tastefully decorated condo with an unforgettable view. We made also sightseeing trips in Venice and surroundings and fell in love with the area. Everything was more than we expected. After terrible, long winter it was heavenly to experience the Florida weather f.ex just sitting with a book in the lanai.

The Nordmans

The owners were helpful in details and the house-watch-manager was nearby so everything was easy.Thank you Mike and Cindy for all help. Definitely would like to come again.

Florida Getaway!l

  • 5 of 5

Having to return to the frozen North after a little over eight weeks in this condo was a traumatic experience. The condo was spotless, very well appointed, beautifully situated overlooking a pond and golf course and conveniently located providing easy access to many terrific restaurants, beaches and shopping. We are returning next year!!

Excellent rental experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are recently back from a terrific month in Venice. I would highly recommend this condo due to the overall value (price/quality). The owners were extremely helpful in answering our questions and sharing details about the unit prior to our arrival. The condo was clean, well maintained, nicely/thoughtfully stocked, and is exactly as shown in the photographs. One nice benefit was the outdoor patio area that overlooks the pond and golf course. Perfect for afternoon sun and wildlife viewing. The unit is well located with numerous restaurants and shops nearby. We hope to rent this unit again in the future.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed here for the month of October. The condo is very clean and well supplied. It is in a perfect location--close to many restaurants and shopping. We loved eating at Crow's Nest, Markers 4, and Leone's for great Italian. Mike was very helpful and easy to work with. When we asked to stay until Nov. 2[when our reservations in Orlando started] he let us stay without charge for the 2 nights. I highly recommend this condo. We hope to return in 2015.

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.
