SUNNY AND SPACIOUS 2 BEDROOM HOME - HUGE FENCED YARD - BEACH FERRY RIDES!

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 ***

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

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.

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.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to spend a family vacation! The house was bright and airy, and equipped with everything we needed for time at the beach. We loved that it was only minutes from the beach. It was also wonderful to have ideas about local restaurants and locally caught and grown good. If we ever make it to Florida again, I will definitely stay here again!

Quaint house near the beach

  • 5 of 5
The house is in a quiet little neighborhood that is ideal if your going to relax. Only minutes from the beach and we spent most our time at Manasota Beach where we found hundreds of sharks teeth. The house itself was very clean and minimal things needed to be done on our departure, which made it nice and easy for us. The free wifi and cable tv were a plus for days we just wanted to hang around the house as well as the grill outside for some burgers and hot dogs. The owners were pleasent and made sure if we had any questions they were answered in a timely manner. Overall a great experience and would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Great to know that Manasota Beach has so many shark's teeth in addition to Caspersen Beach! We're happy that you found the house to be a relaxing home base for your visit in Venice and we hope you come back again soon!

Perfect vacation home for our family and four legged friend!!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Grande is a beautiful, well appointed, spacious, and well stocked vacation home. There are two spacious living areas with kitchen and dining in between. The house was immaculately clean with a huge fenced back yard that our dog loved. The neighborhood is quiet and located 5-10 minutes from downtown Venice, beaches, and grocery stores. Ruth, with Sandpiper Properties, was extremely helpful and patiently answered all my questions with quick responses. We where welcomed with flowers on the table. We also liked the fact that we could park our car in the garage at night. We definitely recommend this property and look forward to staying here again!

Clean, Spacious, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
My family of 6 adults (plus a newborn) had a great time staying at this home when we visited Florida. It has two sitting areas and a master suite with its own bathroom that was perfect for me, my husband, and newborn to sleep in. The house is also just a short drive to beaches and downtown Venice. And the owners were helpful and considerate and easy to work with. I will definitely stay here again during future visits.

Happy Pennsylvanians

Villa Grande was clean, comfortable, and ideally located. Despite being close to the highway, it was quiet and peaceful. The owners went out of their way to make our rental experience convenient and pleasant. They went above and beyond what we expected. Best vacation ever!
