We are recently retired from Ottawa, Canada. With four kids and thirteen grand-kids, family is a big focus in our life. Beaches are the perfect place for families to be together. That's what we love about Venice.
Some houses have a warm feeling about them right from the start. This is one of them. Lots of light, easy flow and enough space for our family to get together without falling over each other. When we're alone, the split design lets us forget about those extra bedrooms. We added travertine floors, a large brick patio and gazebo and comfortable, fun furniture to complete our little corner of paradise, which we're willing to share with you for a little while.
My husband and I have just returned from a 2 1/2 month stay in this charming South Venice bungalow. We wondered if it would be as nice as the photos, but it more than surpassed our expectations! Our first impressions were of light and space, cleanliness and tasteful decor. The "Florida split" plan was a new concept to us, but one that we loved when guests came, with two bedrooms and a bath on one side of the living quarters and a private master suite plus bath on the other. Comfortable beds and lovely linens added to our overall satisfaction, and a great supply of dishes and cutlery made it possible to entertain. The spacious, paved patio at the back was a great place to relax and read, BBQ or entertain. With both a covered and an open eating area it was a delightful place to listen to the chorus of birds in spring.
The owners were outstanding to work with, even changing their own travel plans to permit us to stay another two weeks into April. Any questions we had were promptly responded to by email or phone. Having high speed internet, cable TV, Videoflicks, and unlimited free calling in NA were great bonuses!
While this is our third stay in Venice, it was our first time to enjoy the private beach accessed by the South Venice Ferry. If you feel really energetic, you can work up an appetite by walking 2 miles along the beach for lunch at "Sharky's on the Pier", then walk it off on your return!
Groceries and general shopping is just 5 minutes away at Jacaranda Blvd, and downtown Venice is a short 10 minutes north with it's charming architecture, shops, cafes, restaurants, beaches, theatre and lectures. Some of our favourite eateries included the Bonefish Grill, [minutes north on 41], scones at the Upper Crust Bakery, unique pizzas, called "tomato pies" at Scammoz, and "The Crow's Nest" at the south jetty for a special meal. Another great find for me was the Goodwill Bookstore on 41 with great prices and wide selection.
We would definitely recommend this property to friends! It's a great place for a couple, for a family and for those who enjoy entertaining guests....a real home away from home!
What most impresses us about Venice is the quantity of beautiful, free beaches, each with their own character. Parking is ample and free too, with clean washrooms, change rooms and easy access boardwalks, picnic tables and BBQ. The 5 minute ferry to South Venice Community Beach is at the end of our street, leaving every half hour. Our membership gives you a free ride, but many other beaches are 10 minutes away, too.
