About Kevin Callahan

Husband and I bought this place because we just love Venice Island. Beaches are more private than many other in Florida! Park in the dunes! Downtown Venice has real charm to it! Very hometown and friendly community with alot of free or inexpensive amenities which are open to the public (rare in FL). There are no condos or buildings on the closest beaches near us-pure nature, beautiful!!!

Kevin Callahan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kevin Callahan chose Venice

This property is great because it is completely updated but has that 'Old Florida' feel. Renters come back year after year, mostly repeat business. We keep it super clean, comfortable beachy furnishing and well stocked for your vacation stay.

What makes this condo unique

The location is very central to many things, and super quiet, you can hear the church bells ring. This along with cleanliness, relaxing feel and furnishings this is why renters tell me they keep coming back.

Comfortable, very clean duplex within walking distance to beaches and a quick drive into downtown. Quiet neighborhood. The owner was very accommodating as we were here to close on our new home and had some last minute changes. The only thing that we missed was a dishwasher, but the washer and dryer were a great addition.

Cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Venice is a small but vibrant town with nice, friendly people and easy living. We found the home to be exactly as presented on the site and it provided us the perfect spot to do all the things we enjoy! It is in a quiet residential area close to Sharkey's Pier (fishing and dining), Caspersen's Beach (fossil-hunting and awesome bird-watching), Sarasota (lots to do there), and fabulous dining, just to name a few highlights. The house itself is very clean and well-maintained and even had fishing gear, snorkel gear, bikes and a gas grill. The appliances included a much-appreciated washer and dryer, and all were in tip-top condition. For the cook, there are plenty of dishes and cookware with pretty much anything you would need to create a fabulous meal. Beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of extra linens should you need them. In cooler weather the small lanai would be a perfect spot for morning coffee or to relax with a good book. The carport makes parking your car convenient and easy for loading and unloading. Kevin, the owner, was easily accessible, helpful and returned our security deposit quickly. We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks and would certainly recommend this home to anyone considering traveling to the Venice area.

Fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very pleasant week in Gayle and Kevin's property on Venice Island. It really is like a home away from home with tasteful decorations throughout and excellent quality linens in the rooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was well provided for both indoor cooking and outdoor BBQ's which we took advantage of. Evenings on the Lanai with a bottle of wine, family and friends made this a special place.
We found bikes and beach chairs in the store room and even a ice chest to keep drinks cold during days at the beach. Kevin even went out of his way to help us one evening when we really needed it!
Thanks for a great stay Gayle and Kevin, we will be back!

Golfer/Beach goer

  • 5 of 5
What you see in the pictures is what you get. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils you would need to cook with although there are too many good places to eat nearby that I didn't do much cooking. The unit was very conveniently located to the beach and golf course. The first beach area is in walking distance and Sharkey's Pier is just up the road. We all had fun hunting for sharks teeth there. There is a park just the other side of Sharkey's with a very nice walking trail around a lake. I enjoyed walking there on the mornings I didn't walk on the beach. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the golf course. It was very reasonable in price. The 2 weeks we stayed he only missed about 4 days of not playing. The neighborhood was very quiet which also made our stay very enjoyable. We will keep this on our list to return. Owner were very easy to work with and returned our deposit very promptly.

Month of bliss

  • 5 of 5
We came here for a month to decide if we wanted to move to this area. We are now moving! And our stay at this house was wonderful. The house was clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen was fully loaded, meaning we had all the equipment needed to prepare wonderful meals. It was really close to the beaches which were breathtakingly beautiful. Best of all there were two adult bikes and one childs bike. My mother loved the childs bike and we biked everywhere. The neighborhood was very quiet, and we loved exploring it on the bikes. Lots of vegetation and nature surrounding us. The house is also near a really good coffee roaster business, so we bought some of the best coffee in the area! Another great thing was the ringling arena was just down the road and i managed to use the trapeze facility! Great experience. It was also near a public golf course where you could play for a very low fee. We brought our dog and she experienced the local dog beach

Wonderful communication with the owner and the deposit was returned promptly. I would say you could enjoy this without a car, but you would have to be farely fit and prepared to use the bus service which is available, but we did not use.

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time and everything was clean and well maintained. The owners were terrific to work with. Could walk to beach and a short ride to Sharky's on the Pier and the dog beach which was fantastic. The golf course is right across the street from the dog beach. St. Armand's Circle is only 25 min. away and Boca Grande is 30 min. away and the light house is a must see. The YMCA in Venice has a beautiful outdoor pool and very reasonable daily rate. All the shops are only minutes away by car.
