Overview

Venice House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

On a sunny island with a nearby beach, you’ll sleep comfortably in the heart of Venice Island, FL. Just three blocks from the Gulf of Mexico, we offer guests exclusive, deeded access to a private beach.

Charming is the perfect word to describe this Ruth Richmond home nestled on a quiet street on the Island of Venice. Lovingly maintained with a passion about everything to do with landscaping and the property shows it. Guests with laptops will appreciate the convenience of high-speed Internet, and all will enjoy the flat screen TV with cable and HDTV and lots of DVD's.

Though perfectly placed between beach and town, you can sit in this vacation home’s private backyard and enjoy time utterly to yourself. Flowering trees and lush landscaping make it a welcoming haven, whether for reading a book or enjoying sea breezes on the covered patio.

The peaceful lanai with large sliding doors that slip out of sight will make that morning coffee or evening beverage that much more enjoyable as you embrace the peace and privacy of your back yard.

Enjoy both sides of Florida life in Venice - the picture-postcard beach vacation with gorgeous sunsets and a warm sense of genuine community in the nearby town. The charming town of Venice offers find coffee shops, seafood restaurants and great window shopping. Venice Beach and the famous Venice landmark Sharkey’s on the Pier are both within walking or biking distance of this home.

The Venice Theater sparkles with frequent plays, shows and musical reviews.

If exploring is your thing, you'll love Venice's beaches with miles of white sand offering plenty of opportunities to swim, fish, walk and search for shells and Venice's famous shark's teeth.

Nearby is the Legacy Trail, a 20 mile recreational trail for bikers, joggers and walkers.

Pets are welcome and for their pleasure there is a Pet Beach Park just down the street past the Sharky's. Enjoy ocean views while dining and take an after-dinner walk along the pier extending into the Gulf of Mexico.

Other close amenities are golfing at the 27 hole Lake Venice Golf Club. Return from an enjoyable golf game at one of Venice’s many courses and enjoy an evening cocktail with loved ones. Walk together just a few minutes to the beach for the spectacular Gulf sunsets.

For those hobbyist there is a cute 12X8 shed on the property with electricity to power those tools and lights.

To make sure your visit is as relaxing as possible the house is equipped with plenty of beach chairs, towels, a cooler, pails and shovels and umbrellas.

We live on the island just a few minute from this property. We have bicycles and helmets of various shapes and sizes for your convenience. Our goal is to make your vacation a happy one you will remember fondly and will come back to visit again!

Wonderful rental home in Venice!

  • 5 of 5

We are spending the week in Venice, and are simply delighted with this cottage! We vacation close to a Florida beach every December with our Finnish friends, who are escaping the dreary cold, rain, and darkness, and this is by far the best condo or cottage we have found. The cottage is spacious, stocked full of amenities (even Godiva chocolates, bottled water for the beach, and milk in the refrigerator), is located in a quiet neighborhood, and is close to the historic district and the beaches. This place is simply perfect, and I would be very happy to live here all winter! There is no dishwasher, but that is not a problem for us, as we pick a seafood restaurant every day for dining out. The screened in lanai and backyard are lovely, too. Highly recommended! We are very pleased!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

4 adults stayed at the cottage for a week in great comfort. I really liked the well stocked kitchen, bath, linen closet and garage. We brought our own bikes because rental houses usually have bad ones, but these were very nice. At first, the 4 cup coffee pot was too small, but a simple phone call to the owners brought me to a 12 cup pot in the garage. I've been going to the Venice area for years. This house is in a really nice part of town on the island. Loved it, and will go again. Oh, no dishwasher but great excuse to eat out!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for 8 days and it was very nice. Close to the beach and down town Venice was a short bike ride. The owner ( Norman ) was very nice and helpful. There were bikes for our use, beach gear, and a basket for shark tooth hunting. We would highly recommend this cottage if you are planning to be in the Venice area.
