About Kathleen and Gregg

Living in Venice is living a dream come true. We are so thankful to live in such a beautiful place in this world. We purchased this house in 2013, and are so enjoying the beach, the pool, the historic town, and the quaint small town feel of this perfect spot in paradise.

Kathleen and Gregg purchased this house in 2013

Why Kathleen and Gregg chose Venice

We love our little downtown with boutiques, shell shops, clothing, shoes, and designer home shops. The restaurants are excellent, and there are so many, you could try one every day you are on vacation!! The town was originally designed by urban designer John Nolan, whose grandson is a friend of our son!! There are many amazing parks like the palm park and the arboretum park with all the trees and plants labeled. There are many beaches on the island, with different feel of the beach to explore. The best fun we have is collecting shells and sharks teeth, which we display in our home. This is one of only a few places you can find the fossilized sharks teeth on Florida beaches. The water here changes from day to day, but we love to explore the shallow water and sand bars near the beach with snorkeling. We see many dolphins swimming just yards from the edge of the waters, many different fish and have even seen a small sting ray. We have many different types of birds, pelicans, blue herons, egrets to mention a few. The best thing about our house is it is in a quiet neighborhood, and so close to the beach, it only takes a minute or two to walk over there.

What makes this house unique

Venice House has been designed and furnished as a Mediterranean Villa with 2500 square feet of living space to enjoy. Our pool is heated and very enjoyable and relaxing. It's really great to come back from the beach and head straight into the pool!! The house has a beautiful new kitchen with high quality appliances and granite counters. Every bathroom is granite and tile, and the floors are marble tile inside, wood or wool carpeting. This is a designer quality home, with all the rooms furnished by a local interior designer. It is wonderful to sit on the front porch in the morning and enjoy the sunshine and the archways which look out on to our tropical palm trees and plantings.

Wonderful house to rent!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with the house, it has everything you need for your stay. Very comfortable, we felt right at home. We had five people staying in the house and had plenty of room. The house is located one short block from Venice Beach and an easy walk to town. We walked to the beach every night to watch the sunset - beautiful!! The pool was wonderful. On our last night while swimming in the pool, we had quite a star show - even saw a shooting star. We truly did not want to leave! We would love to come back, but it would be for a longer stay - two weeks was not enough!! Kathleen was very helpful and we definitely recommend this rental.

Beautiful House!!!

  • 5 of 5

I feel so lucky to have stayed in this beautiful house with all its beautiful furnishings. The location is convenient - a very short walk to the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. My husband and I especially liked being able to ride our bikes from the house to the beautiful Venetian Waterway Park trails. We tried several of the restaurants recommended by Kathleen and were very pleased with the food & service. I hope to be able to return to Venice and would definitely like to stay in this house.

Beautiful home close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home. It's furnished like i would like my house to be furnished, very comfortable, the pool is so nice that my kids didn't even want to go to the beach (unfortunately the week we were here, there was also a lot of seaweed at the beach) and it made our vacation so relaxing. Dealing with owners was a pleasure as well. I would love to come back some day.

1 Year Anniversary Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to tell you how depressed my husband and I were the day we checked out of this beautiful home. The interior was gorgeously decorated, with plenty of space to have friends and family over (Love the big kitchen and giant master bathroom!)I especially enjoyed cooking breakfast every morning in the very accommodating kitchen. There was way too much room for just the two of us (which is exactly what I loved :D). It would EASILY house six people.The pool area was a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast and provided a relaxing view. Venice was such a great city to stay in because it has EVERYTHING you need only a minute or two away, including: grocery stores, restaurants, beaches, and shops; so pretty and fun to walk down town (we enjoyed ice cream from one of the local shops)! I would absolutely recommend this vacation home. I greatly appreciated the little packet provided by Kathleen and Gregg, filled with easy to understand instructions on how to use things around the house, as well as suggestions of where to visit in Venice (like botanical gardens, which we did enjoy). There were also things around the house to use I was thankful to not have to go out and buy, like sugar, salt and pepper, etc. And of course, the house was squeaky clean, and all the little Florida bugs stayed outside and not in my bedroom (unlike some places I've stayed!!) This is definitely one of the best vacations of our entire life and we can't wait to come back someday. I hope we don't have to wait too long... :)

MY DREAM STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous home is every bit as wonderful as it looks in the pictures, and even more! Every detail is taken care of. The home and pool and supplies were so much more than we expected. The owners were extremely gracious and made everything just perfect for us. You are literally just a couple of blocks walk to the beach! So nice. This is an absolutely gorgeous home and such a great value. You are very lucky indeed if you get the chance to stay here!

Walk for miles along the beach or out on the jetty to see the beautiful sunsets here in Venice. Right at our beach we dig for fossilized sharks teeth. I have seen them sometimes on top of the sand and surf as you walk along the Main Venice Beach. Lots of fun.

Venice Island House is located a short walk to the main Venice public beach located at the end of Venice Avenue. This historic location was once a fine resort hotel. Over the years it has been transformed into a lovely pavilion beach cafe with outside showers and bathrooms. Only one block away from our house!

Venice Island House is also located just west of the Historic downtown shopping street with fine restaurants, and interesting shops. Venice library, community center, and art center are just blocks away. There is a lovely central park which has the sidewalk fountains for children and adults to run through. Huge banyan trees cover walking trails which take you straight to the beach. Rental shops are available for boating, kayaking, wind surfing, para-sailing, water skiing, snorkeling, deep sea diving and fishing. There is a large pier is on the island, and can be used for fishing with no license required.

Biking is a popular activity on the island, with many bike trails to choose from. We have three bikes available at the house, plus rentals nearby. There is an 18 hole golf course on the south part of the island, as well as a small airport where you can take sightseeing plane or helicopter rides. Just around the corner from the house is a small convenience food shop with many beach items such as sunscreen and hats. Come to our lovely house and have your vacation in Paradise!
