Venice House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom 2 bathroom updated private home close to beach with many amenities

Breezy Villa is a comfortable one story open floor plan 2 bedroom split single family home located only minutes away from popular Sharky`s restaurant (and the newly opened Fin's), the Venice Fishing Pier and four blocks from the beach. It features two bedrooms and two baths with a new porcelain tile floor.

Breezy Villa has a split floor plan with each bedroom separated by the living room with their own private baths. Provided are many amenities to make your vacation relaxing, including beach chairs, umbrella, shark's tooth strainer, beach toys and two beach cruiser bicycles.

We are the owners of this home and respond to *every* inquiry within hours. Why deal with 'managers' when you can deal with someone who takes pride in the home that they own? We have our own Book it Now feature and guarantee that you can be booked in this vacation rental just as easily if not more easily than with VRBO's Book it Now feature without the fees.

Proximity to the Gulf of Mexico brings almost constant breezes to this adorable villa. Throw open all the windows and the double French doors and enjoy the fresh ocean air!

Visit beautiful Venice Island only 3 minutes north. Shop, eat and enjoy the many wonderful activities only minutes away, including the Venice Rookery where you can see Bald Eagles and other exotic large birds, the Dome Flea Market, the weekly Venice Farmer's Market, Warm Mineral Springs (just re-opened in March 2014) or travel 20 minutes north to Sarasota for the Mote Marine Aquarium or Myakka River Park where you can see alligators in their natural habitat from an air boat.

Venice,Florida is known as the 'Shark's Tooth Capital of the World' and your vacation paradise is only four blocks to a ferry which will take you on a four minute trip to Manasota Key (passes provided) or you are minutes from Caspersen Beach where you can scoop shark's teeth right out of the shallows. Don't worry, these teeth aren't new, they're prehistoric.

On one side of Breezy Villa is the master suite with double doors that close creating a three-room cozy and private retreat from the rest of the home. The master bedroom features a comfortable queen size bed and a walk-in closet with plenty of room for your clothes. The master bathroom has a bath tub and shower. Feel extra pampered after your shower with the plush spa towels and waffle cotton spa robe provided for you during your stay.

The third space is a separate office area with a full length desk. Close the master bedroom door, throw your laptop on the desk and surf with high speed wireless Internet with no worries about disturbing someone sleeping.

The second bedroom includes a queen sized bed and a roomy closet for all of those new “Shark's Tooth Capital” t-shirts. It also boasts its own bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Also offered are two Simmons DreamSleep folding twin beds with very comfy memory foam mattresses.

The living room lets you sit back and relax between all of that hard work of laying on the beach and features a 39” LED HD TV with loads of HD channels and a DVR for recording your favorite shows while you are out, wireless Internet access (WiFi). Also included is an Internet cordless telephone (Vonage) which features free unlimited local and national calling in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico as well as to 70 countries. No need to worry about cell phone charges or signal coverage with your cell phone!

In the dining room, throw open the French doors and let the breeze pour in as you enjoy a little coffee or tea at the shaded patio table. The back patio invites you to cook on the propane grill and dine outside while enjoying the Florida sunshine or comfortable nights under the palm trees while being serenaded by tree frogs and crickets. Relax there and watch your kids or pets play in the fenced yard, chasing the cute little geckos.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, gadgets and updated appliances – including dishwasher. Also included are basic spices, coffee and sugar to get you started.

Next to the kitchen is a full laundry room with washer and dryer for drying those wet bathing suits, washing those towels you were sitting on at the beach or getting your clothes cleaned of one adventure and ready for the next.

Breezy Villa has ceiling fans throughout as well as central air and heating. Also for your convenience is a roomy garage with inside entrance to the house and an automatic garage door opener is provided for your use.

The back yard is fully fenced so no need to have to walk the dog several times a day - although you probably won't mind strolling around the lovely quiet neighborhood.

One feature which we believe sets our property apart from many others is that we change the locks after every guest and the lock box code you are given to access the house is individualized and never the same. There are no cleaning people or contractors who will have a key to the house. As the property owners, we respect your privacy and value your security.

Venice is a very beautiful and laid back city and you're sure to meet other friendly people biking and walking as you take a stroll or walk your dog. The local area has several dog parks and dog beaches where your pooch can run free.

**** We can accommodate last minute reservations! ****

About Ruth Miller

My significant other Dan and I live in Venice so we can take care of any issues with the house ourselves. We visited the area in December 2011 from Pennsylvania and during our stay we decided to move here and have never looked back.

For more information visit us at

Ruth Miller purchased this house in 2012

Why Ruth Miller chose Venice

We chose this property for a vacation rental business because of it's proximity to beaches and quiet residential neighborhoods.

What makes this house unique

You can ride bikes, drive or walk to the nearby South Venice Beach Ferry which takes you to a private beach for the South Venice Community. No need to park your car and carry your beach gear for several blocks. Beach ferry pass is provided with your stay. The area also enjoys a nearly constant breeze because of its proximity to the water, which keeps the bugs away.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

House is very well stocked. Lovely towels and beach towels as well as lots of extras

We did find the dishes and the cutlery to be not quite clean so we washed everything before using

Maybe the dishwasher?

The house is well stocked with cleaning supplies, lovely laundry area

We would have really like a screened in lanai but knew this house did not have one before arrival

Location is very close to wonderful beaches, shopping,etc

Would certainly recommend it to others

We have TV issues (our fault) and Ruth looked after this very promptly

We had beautiful weather in the time we were here and so enjoyed our visit

Our stay at Breezy Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time staying at Breezy Villa, but 2nd time staying in one of Ruth's homes. I must say that we would recommend either home. We loved this homes location to the Private Beach Access, we have been coming to Nokomis/Venice for years and this was the first we had heard of it. The home is perfect and conveniently located to all the local beaches and restaurants. Ruth goes above and beyond to provide the home with all the amenities, including extras that you might have forgotten during your packing. The fenced in back yard was perfect for our puppies. We visit once/twice a year and we will be staying at one of Ruth's homes when we return. Thank you Ruth!

Wonderful Villa located on South Venice

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I drove down to Florida. After a very long drive, we were greeted by a phone call from the owner of Breezy Villa just as we were driving into the area. Ruth had phoned to advise us that we could check in earlier than the regular check in time since the villa was vacant. What great service!

The villa is conveniently located to all Venice has to offer including restaurants, shopping and the oh so many area beaches. Though the house is on the smaller side, it is efficient in all it's amenities. It is a bright home with a wonderful backyard. I have to say, my husband and I have rented several times for vacation and this house was the best "stocked" home. It included everything from the basics to laundry detergent, to wonderful white robes for use during our stay.

My husband and I were in the area searching for a home to relocate to Venice. Ruth provides an exit email to her renters. She was aware of the reason for our visit and in our exit email provided dates that her home was available should we need to return. Low and behold we actually did return and was happy that we could rent Breezy Villa again. This took the pressure off to find a place we could rent and be satisfied with. One of the best perks in renting this villa is the access to the south Venice ferry. What a great way to unwind after a day of house hunting. This is truly a gem of a house.

Our stay at Breezy Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for about a week at Breezy Villa with my wife, niece and our small dog, and we all had a great time. We did not know Venice at all but discovered that you can easily both have as many interesting activities as you like or just have a quiet break if you prefer. The 'Tamiami' biking trail was particularly enjoyable for its scenery and proximity. We also enjoyed the local beaches and the dog beach is fantastic.

The house was very comfortable, spacious, with a good back yard for our small dog. It was clean, quiet, and very well maintained and located. Inside the house, everything was provided. Every effort was made to make guests comfortable and allow us to relax and enjoy ourselves. Also the beds were very comfortable.

The food (and non food) shopping, cafés and restaurants are minutes away.

We really would like to recommend Breezy Villa, and Ruth. We certainly would like to come back again next year and discover and enjoy some more of the area, fun and relaxation. Thanks Ruth, for such a great break it was really special and enjoyable.

Great Getaway!

Each year, a friend & I escape to FL for a week, This year we decided to try Venice in July. Our stay at Breezy Villa couldn't have been better! Breezy Villa was very clean & beautifully equipped - even fresh flowers on the dining table! Very good lay-out. We loved taking the ferry to the S. Venice private beach. We went early & left before it got really hot. The ferry ride takes about 5 min & it's a great way to meet locals & learn about the turtles. We enjoyed the Rookery & Sleeping Turtle, Clyde Butcher's showroom & studio. My dog loved the backyard & neighborhood for walks. And we really recommend The Upper Crust and, of course, Sharkey's! No - we did not want to leave!

It's nice that you got to visit the Rookery - it's so close and such a great place to see exotic Florida birds. We hope to see you for your next girl's getaway!
