Overview

Venice House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath House With Garage/Laundry/Fully Stocked

Our spacious Villa Grande home is located just minutes away from the popular Sharky's restaurant, downtown Venice and several fabulous *free* beaches.

A single story villa, it is fully updated with tile floors throughout and features a split design separating the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Many amenities are provided to make your vacation relaxing, including beach chairs, pool noodles, beach umbrella, beach towels, beach toys, shark's tooth strainer and two beach cruiser bicycles with front baskets.

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?

Visit beautiful Venice Island. Shop, eat and enjoy the sunny Florida scenery. Venice, Florida is known as the 'Shark's Tooth Capital of the World' and your vacation paradise is only 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.

One side of Villa Grande features the master bedroom boasting a king size bed and a walk-in closet with plenty of room for your clothes. The master bathroom has a tub, shower, towel closet and plenty of counter space on the vanity. Feel extra pampered with the plush spa towels and spa robes provided for you during your stay.

On the other side of the home, a pocket door gives the second bedroom its own living area with access to a full second bathroom. The bedroom includes a queen size bed and a roomy closet for all of those new 'Shark's Tooth Capital' t-shirts. The second bathroom has a spacious vanity top, large mirror and a large walk-in shower.

Also offered is one fold-out Simmons DreamSleep twin bed with very comfy memory foam mattress and a roomy full mattress sized sofa bed in the Florida room.

The kitchen features a breakfast bar and is fully stocked with pots, pans, gadgets and updated appliances - including dishwasher. We also stock spices, coffee, salt, pepper, sugar and other basics that you don't have to buy at the store. We provide paper towels, toilet paper, laundry soap, dishwasher soap and some sample sizes of toothpaste, mouthwash etc so the only thing you need to shop for is perishable food that you'd like to cook at home.

Sit back and relax after a day on the beach in the Living Room, which features a 39 inch flat screen TV, Verizon FIOS HD TV and high speed wireless Internet access (WiFi). Telephones feature free unlimited local and national calling in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico as well as to 70 countries.

Throw open the French door and let the breeze pour in as you enjoy a little coffee or tea. Dine outside while enjoying the Florida sunshine under the palm trees while your kids or pets play in the fenced yard.

The garage is attached and includes automatic door control and full size 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.

Villa Grande has ceiling fans throughout as well as central air and heating.

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 the Legacy Trail and walking as you take a stroll or walk your dog. The local area has several dog parks and Brohard Paw Park Dog Beach where your pooch can run free.

Included with your stay is a pass to the South Venice Beach Ferry. Experience nostalgic 'Old Florida' as you take a 4 minute ride on the ferry to the beach which is only accessible to people with ferry passes. The beach ferry has turned out to be a favorite with our guests!

*** 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.

Ruth Miller purchased this house in 2012

Why Ruth Miller chose Venice

We chose this house to offer as a seasonal rental because it is conveniently located yet also in a quiet residential neighborhood. We added a privacy fence to the spacious back yard and changed the flooring to ceramic tile so that we can accommodate travelers with their pets.

What makes this house unique

House is on a spacious corner lot with a tropical garden feel. Back yard is completely privacy fenced. Floor plan is open and spacious feeling.

Just Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5

I think the thing that impressed my wife and me the most was the obvious attention to detail in every aspect of the rental process and the accommodations once we arrived. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided at Villa Grande. This can only be accomplished by a business person who is completely committed to customer satisfaction. Ruth Miller is that business person. Thank you, Ruth.

What's not to like

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay while you visit and enjoy one of the hottest cities in Florida. Thank you Ruth for making us so comfortable in your home. Spacious and clean are two words that first come to mind. While there were only two of us, it's easy to see how perfect it is for families with children as well as pets. We really enjoyed our time in Venice. Look forward to next time

A Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Ruth, for a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Venice. It couldn't have suited us any better! From the moment we walked into your immaculate home, we knew we had chosen just the right spot to stay! From the basket of treats, including ones for our dog, to the well-appointed kitchen...we couldn't have asked for more. The location was convenient to everything! We hope to be able to stay again soon. We appreciate your courtesy and quick responses to our emails. Thanks for everything, Ruth!

One of the best rental experiences we have ever had...

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to start with so many positives, but Ruth was wonderful from my initial questions, booking, my many other questions about the area, and lightening fast responses. She did not miss a beat on everything someone would need or want in a rental. I have stayed in numerous vrbo rentals over the past 10 plus years and this is one of the best thanks to Ruth making the place immaculate and providing all the extras that you should never expect at a rental. From the excellent quality bedding, towels, cookware, furniture, washer and dryer, bikes, beach chairs to having robes and slippers, truly high speed reliable internet, a vizio flat screen tv (and the BBC series Life on disc- a must see- we watched in christmas, was spectacular), great air conditioning with a dehumidifier whole house unit, a huge secured fenced yard that is bigger than some dog parks, and one of the county sheriffs who lives across the street with his family- great security feature too:-) The ferry pass that comes with the rental is great, really enjoyed the quiet beach and looking for shark's teeth with the beach tools provided and so clise to the house. Other than the spacious yard that my 2 pugs sniffed every inch of with joy, they also love the dog park and dog beach which are very close to the house. We love the dog friendly restaurants, vrbo does not allow names, but I will give Ruth the names for future pet owners, she already has a list of a few of them in her comprehensive binder of local info. at the house. We hope to rent this house every year during the holidays! Thanks again Ruth!

local golf tournament

  • 5 of 5

The house worked out great for us. It's location provided us with a short trip to the golf course and other activities when we weren't golfing. Everything was as advertised. Ruth is a good communicator and a thoughtful landlord. A welcome basket of treats and notebook with pertinent information about the house, garbage schedule, local attractions, etc. were nice to have.
