See www.rodmct.gmxhome.de for more information about everything that Venice has to offer and lots more photos of our piece of paradise.

Fishing and Boating Paradise!

You can enjoy the luxury of fishing and boating from the private dock in your own back garden which gives you access to the deep sea fishing and all other boating pleasures of the Gulf within 15 minutes. The dock has a permit for motor boats with up to 10.8 inches of draft. The community boat ramp is 200 metres from the front door.

Thrill and Bargain Seekers!

For the thrill seeker Busch Gardens, Tampa is less than hour's drive away with the full selection of parks at Orlando (four Disney Parks, Sea World, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, four Water Parks, the opportunity to swim with dolphins, night clubs etc.) just one and a half hours away. The shop-aholics are also well catered for with Designer Outlet Malls less than an hour away and the designer shops at the St Armand's Circle just a 20 minutes drive.

Pilots:-

Venice Municipal Airport is less that 10 minutes away, offering rental and instruction possibilities for private pilots. The airport's central position on the Gulf Coast makes this a wonderful base to explore Florida and the Bahamas by small plane with countless airfields to visit, most of which will gladly provide a courtesy car for a couple of hours at no cost!

Biking Fans!

The Gulf Coast has a well developed network of bike paths for cycling enthusiasts. In particular you have direct access to the Legacy Trail (a converted railway line) just round the corner in Laurel Road which then takes you directly to the Oscar Scherer State Park in a few minutes by bicycle.

Golfer's Paradise!

Florida's Gulf Coast is a golfer's dream. Within the greater Sarasota area there are 44 golf courses all beautifully presented with stunning water and sand features. In the immediate Venice area there are six excellent golf courses. These can all be reached within a few minutes, with Calusa Lakes Golf Course only three minutes away.

Please note that that local deed restrictions forbid any recreational vehicles (RVs), boats, trailers, commercial vehicles and vehicles with any form of advertising to be parked outside overnight. If any such vehicle can fit into our standard size garage (which can take two medium sized cars at a squeeze) for overnight parking, then there is no problem.

Payment can be in $, EUR or UK Pounds Sterling.

Arrival after 16:00pm. Departure before 10:00am.

About Rod and June MCTAGGART

June and I cannot spend as much time in our piece of paradise as we would like so it is available to rent. We are Scottish and speak English and German.

Rod and June MCTAGGART purchased this villa in 2004

Why Rod and June MCTAGGART chose Venice

We are hobby pilots and have flown in many parts of the world including most of the USA. When we first visited Venice we fell in love with it and decided to buy a place there.

What makes this villa unique

Venice offers the perfect compromise with fabulous beaches and the relaxed living style of the Gulf Coast while still being in easy reach of the entertainment in Orlando and Tampa and everything they have to offer. Unlike some areas on the Gulf Coast there is easy access to all of your shopping needs but the house is located in its own little piece of paradise as the pictures show!

A Place to Return to Again and Again

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything! It is spacious, comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood, and very close to the beach. The back yard is beautiful, and leads down to a fishing dock where the men spent every waking minute when we weren't out sight-seeing or at the beach. Downtown Venice is a great place to stroll, shop, take it easy, and has a very popular bakery! St. Petersburg is not that far away, and if you think you don't like Salvador Dali's work, visit the Art museum. You will be amazed. Much to see and do, or just stay by the pool. We are returning again.

Fabulous holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much of letting us use your wonderful home - we had such a great holiday and the bikes, fishing rods and beach gear were all well used and were fab! We did a 1 day kayaking session down at Stump Pass which was beautiful, a day trip to Myaka, day trip to St Petersburg to see the new Dali museum on the waterfront (fab building and great art collection) and numerous jaunts in and around Venice to various beaches. Casey Key Fish House was a favourite restaurant and the margarita on the beach (with the drums) was memorable!

You are very lucky to have such a great holiday home in a very pretty setting. All in all we had a fantastic time - thank you once again.

A Tranquil Setting

  • 5 of 5

The description and photos of the property are only the beginning to a wonderful and peaceful vacation getaway. The home is very well maintained and everything from a fully stocked kitchen to accessories for the beach are at your fingertips. We love to spend some part of everyday sitting in the lania enjoying the beautiful setting of the creek, the abundance of wildlife and the beautiful pool. We will be returning next year for our third stay at this property. Rod and June have been very helpful and easy to work with when booking this vaction rental and we would highly recommend this property. Some of our favorite things to do are the drumming sunsets at Nokomis Beach, looking for shells and sharks teeth at Casperan Beach, the drive through Casey Key with a drink at the Tiki hut and dinner at Casey Key Fish House. We can hardly wait to return next year.

Fantastic Florida holiday

  • 5 of 5

Rod and June's gorgeous house is in a fantastic location. Very close to the classic floridian attractions - beaches and shopping malls - but also very tranquil with serene views over the creek. No need to go visit wildlife parks - you can watch the wildlife from pool-side. We found there was something in the area for everyone. We enjoyed the shopping and a visit to the Busch Gardens themepark but were also amazed by the beautiful historic John Ringling Mansion and art gallery in nearby Sarasota. Plan a long trip because there is a lot to see and do - although you may find it difficult to drag yourself away from your holiday home - it's so comfortable!

A piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The property was every bit as good as the description and photos on the web site and was very clean and comfortable.

Access to local area beaches was very good and there were several good restaurants not far away particularly the Crows Nest at Venice Jetty where we also saw dolphins and manatee most evenings. We even saw a manatee swimming down the creek at the bottom of the garden!

Boat hire was available from Nokomis at the boatyard on the Intra-coastal waterway.

We have been to Florida 11 times and this was easily the best house we have ever rented and we will be back one day.
