South Venice House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 2 Bed/2 Bath Home (Sleeps 6) near beaches, shopping, boating and golf.

Beautiful 2Bed/2Bath South Venice home with gorgeous private saltwater heated pool and spa!

Bask in the sunshine on South Venice's private beach, (reachable only by a private 20 passenger ferry) or splash in the clear blue Gulf waters at one of the several nearby beaches. Venice, Florida is the shark-tooth capital of the world, and many beachcombers find these hidden gems while strolling along the water's edge. Chairs, towels, umbrella, cooler and sand toys are provided for you with this rental!

Our vacation home is close to shopping, dining, boating, fishing, hiking and golf. Downtown Venice, a palm tree lined village with quaint shops and many fine restaurants, is only a short 10 minute drive.

A beautiful screened lanai with heated pool/hot tub spa offers refreshing relaxation after a day of sightseeing or beach-bumming. An outdoor grill and dining table (seats 8) is perfect for those nights you'd prefer to stay at home.

The fully equipped kitchen has absolutely everything you'll need, and overlooks the pool from the double french doors.

Our comfortable open living room is equipped with 42'TV and sleeper sofa.

Free WiFi is provided for our guests.

Both the master bedroom and guestroom are furnished with comfortable queen sized beds. The living room sofa pulls out for additional guests. There are 2 full nicely decorated baths.

The 2 car garage is supplied with a washer/dryer, beach equipment, two bicycles and kayaks.

Property managers are a simple phone call away for anything additional you might need!!

Susan & Ron Donovan (CT owners) Bud & Jill Johnson (co-owners/property mgr) purchased this house in 2011

Why Susan & Ron Donovan (CT owners) Bud & Jill Johnson (co-owners/property mgr) chose South Venice

Excellent location. Only a short distance to walking trails along the inter-coastal waterway, parks, beaches and boat launches. A 30 minute drive to beautiful Sarasota where you'll find parks, gardens, art, great restaurants and shopping galore. Tampa's Busch Gardens is a fantastic way to spend the day, and only an hour drive from this home. Planning on seeing one of the many theme parks while you're in Florida? Orlando is a 2 hour drive from this home - so, spend the day at Disney and then return to the calm and relaxation of your own private retreat in Venice!

What makes this house unique

The outdoor space (pool/spa area) is gorgeous! You feel like you're on vacation every day - even when you're just staying home!

Loved the Lanai and Hot Tub

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed the outdoor living space for relaxation and how the kitchen opened up to the lanai for an enjoyable feeling of being outdoors. The hot tub was our favorite and it was especially nice to have the patio heater to help take the chill out of the night air. The neighborhood was quiet and everything you need is close by. The house was exactly as the pictures show and Bud was very friendly and helpful.

We loved this house. It was impeccable and had everything that you needed for a nice vacation. It was close to many things and in a very quiet neighborhood. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. The owners were helpful and did everything as expected. We would definitely come back here again. It was a super great experience for us all!
Thank you for letting us stay here.

Venice house

  • 5 of 5
We had a marvelous time! We loved everything about the house. The kitchen was perfect, the pool was wonderful and so was the hot tub. We loved eating outside in the screened patio. That was very nice. The master bedroom and bathroom were beautiful. The garage was very convenient as was the washer/dryer. The kids enjoyed playing the board games. The house's location to the beach couldn't have been better. We just had a fantastic time. Told a lot of friends about the house and vrbo. We highly recommend, and can't wait to do it again! Bud was fantastic. Kind, friendly, and very helpful. We didn't meet his wife until the morning we left, but she was also so kind and friendly. Wonderful people. It was our first time doing something like this, and we were a little nervous, but that ended very quickly. We felt right at home!

Most relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
The house was absolutely perfect. The house was clean, roomy, relaxing, and was stocked with everything you could need. We spent most of our time on the lanai enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery. We took advantage of the pool and hot tub everyday. We only left the house to run to the grocery store for some snacks. We will definitely be recommending this property to friends !!

A Perfect Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This was indeed a very special place to spend one's vacation. We were welcomed by
Bud Johnson who shared all the information we might need about the accommodations
and the area. He and the other owners have directed their attention to the smallest of
details and this beautiful home leaves a vacationing family lacking absolutely nothing. In the unique and renewing setting of Venice, with the Gulf beaches and delightful sightseeing minutes away, and with the extraordinarily beautiful pool steps away, I can't think of a more perfect venue for a vacation. We had an absolutely wonderful time here!!!

What to do during your stay in Venice?

The shark tooth capital of the world, Venice, Florida, is known for its spectacular shoreline. Stroll down Venice Avenue with its pink, Italian Renaissance buildings, Mediterranean-style shops and 'umbrella-topped' Canary Island date palms.

1. THE VENETIAN WATERWAY TRAIL & THE LEGACY TRAIL: Venice is fortunate in that we have TWO incredible paved walkways for walkers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, and all other outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy! The Venetian Waterway Trail runs along both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway providing a calming view of boats and dolphins making their way through the channel. The Legacy Trail, recently opened, is a rails-to-trails project that links Venice directly to Sarasota via a paved lane through several different ecological habitats.

2. EXPLORE OUR BEACHES:

You've seen one beach, you've seen them all? Oh no, not here in Venice! Each of our public beaches features its own distinct personality! Check out Casperson Beach at the far end of Harbor Drive for excellent sharkstooth hunting and enjoy the pavilions and playground that are located on the edge of Red Lake. Brohard Beach is our local Paw Park where you can bring your four-legged friends for a romp in the surf! Venice Beach is located directly at the end of Venice Ave. W. Don't miss trying a locally famous 'Jetty Dog' at Venice's South Jetty while watching the surfers (if the waves are good). North Jetty Park also has a walkable jetty suitable for fishing or just watching a sunset. The newly renovated pavilion at Nokomis Beach, along with its access to the Intracoastal is also a favorite of locals!

3. FISHING:

The Venice Fishing Pier is located at Brohard Park on the south end of the island of Venice, and is owned by the City of Venice. The 700-foot Pier is a great location for fishing and to end the day watching a beautiful sunset. Connected to Sharky's on the Pier, the only beachfront restaurant in the Venice area, the Pier offers Papa's Bait Shop, with live & frozen bait, coffee, treats, jackets, shirts, and more. Nearby are six picnic shelters, two sand volleyball courts, and public restrooms with showers. Open at all times. There is no fee to access the Pier and avid and amateur fisherman of all ages can fish from the Pier without a fishing license.

4. SHOPPING & DINING

Crossing one of Venice's bridges to the historic downtown area, known as 'The Island of Venice', instantly transports you Downtown Veniceto a place of unparalleled charm where palm tree lined avenues host an endless array of exciting things to do and see. You’re sure to find a shop or boutique to satisfy your style out of the 100+ unique shops, salons, and other businesses along the Island Avenues of Venice. If dining is your idea of excitement, your palate will be especially pleased. With many sidewalk cafes and several picturesque waterfront restaurants, Venice offers a total dining experience that is truly second to none.
