Whether your family wants a convenient launch pad to the many charms of Venice Island, or you just want to pull up the drawbridge and forget about the world outside, your needs are fully met at Harbor Drive South House #604.<br/><br/> <br/>Enjoy both sides of Florida life in Venice - the picture-postcard beach vacation with gorgeous sunsets and a warm sense of genuine community in the charming nearby town. Guests of this charming home will enjoy private deeded beach access to Golden Beach, on the Gulf of Mexico just four short blocks away. <br/><br/>Towards the charming town of Venice itself, walk just eight blocks to find coffee shops, seafood restaurants and great window shopping. Both Venice Beach and the famous Venice landmark Sharky’s on the Pier are also within walking or biking distance. Enjoy ocean views while dining and take an after-dinner walk along the pier extending into the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, the Harbor Drive house is just a five-minute drive to beautiful Casey Key and the white sands of Nokomis Beach.<br/><br/>The house recently changed ownership and many renovations and upgrades have been completed. Guests will enjoy new kitchen and bathroom renovations, fresh paint throughout, and gleaming, newly refinished terrazzo floors. The home has also been upgraded with new furnishings, linens, draperies, bed, kitchen items, and mattress. Guests with laptops will appreciate the convenience of high-speed Internet, and all will enjoy the new flat screen TV. The house has a bright, fresh, more modern feel and is now ready to be thoroughly enjoyed by our guests!<br/> <br/><br/>With one bedroom and a high-quality, comfortable living room sofa bed, it’s perfect for an individual, couple, or family of four. Big windows, high ceilings and a general feeling of roominess are just what you need in this climate. <br/><br/>The home has a beautiful, lush backyard which can be enjoyed from rocking chairs or a full patio dining area on the wonderful, screened lanai. This provides essentially an outdoor living room from which to enjoy cool ocean breezes and relaxation. A fully equipped kitchen helps you to economize while on vacation, and a laundry area with washer and dryer provides added convenience. <br/><br/>Being so close to so many beaches and also to downtown Venice, it’s easy to pack a lot into a day - totally ditching the car if you choose. Perhaps choose to rent bikes during your stay, safely stashing them in the home’s laundry area when not in use.<br/><br/>Past guests really love this house and its dream location. Imagine a vacation where you’ll never once have to worry about parking! At night enjoy absolute peace and quiet - a real feature of this serene neighborhood. Harbor Drive South is one of a very few available Venice Island homes that can be rented for shorter stays (as short as 1 week). We are also located a 15 minute walk or quick car ride to Browhard Paw Park (the famous Venice Dog Park).
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
overall, a very nice rental. The bed in the front bedroom was terrible. Either curtains or sun darkening blinds are also needed in that bedroom. We will not rent again unless that bed is upgraded.
The property was very well situated for the beach, Venice Avenue and our son's house on the Rialto. The pool area was great for family meals; the kitchen could do with more mugs, dishes and glasses.<br/>Response from the manager to a broken fan was instant and helpful.
This was the first time I have rented a home and it was a very pleasant experience for all of us.
We had a great time, house was very clean, confortable, and the location is great. We would defenitely rent it again.
Great Mango Tree in the back yard. Mattresses need to be replaced - very uncomfortable sleeping. Great pool and deck area.
Need firm beds
