Overview

Venice House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our home is a beautifully updated 3 bedroom home located at 425 Gulf St. within walking distance of Venice Beach and downtown Venice. 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. Venice's quaint downtown has fine restaurants and lots of shopping.

Our home has new tile floors and a new kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances and updated bathrooms. There is a large heated pool, 18 * 36 feet, with lots of space for lounge chairs, a new white vinyl fence for privacy and a comfortable shaded pergola for outdoor dining and relaxation. There is a washer and dryer in the attached 2 car garage. 4 bikes are provided for your use on the many intercoastal bike trails in Venice. Each of the three bedrooms has a queen size bed. Two bedrooms share one full bath and the third has its own bathroom. There is a third full bathroom accessed from the outdoor pool area. The house has lots of room to spread out with over 2,000 square feet of living space.

About Kevin Murphy

Hanging Out at Beautiful Venice Beach

Kevin Murphy purchased this house in 2008

Why Kevin Murphy chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

After years of searching we were most fortunate to find our dream house on Venice Island. As one visitor said, 'It is a slice of paradise' Venice Island is our favorite place in the area because of its proximity to the ocean, downtown Venice and the intercoastal waterway. We wish we could spend more time at the house but we are still working our jobs running a restaurant in New Hampshire but we try to get away to Venice whenever we can. The open floor plan of our house, gulf breezes and quiet backyard make this a spectacular vacation spot.

What makes this house unique

We love riding our bikes along the intercoastal to Casperson's Beach and walking downtown for dinner..

Wonderful Vacation Home for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation at this home. We came in from all parts of the world for Christmas and found this home to be very comfortable. Wonderful beds, linen, plenty of towels and blankets. Big open floor plan with plenty of comfortable couches, big dinning room table for Christmas Dinner. Table for card games or jig saw puzzels that we were working on. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking needs as well as a large, working grill outside on the patio area for grilling steaks or fish. Nice library, reading room that looked out at the front gardens and gave some privacy from the rest of the house. I enjoyed some quiet time in there reading my book, drinking coffee in the morning and watching the squirrels jumping in the trees on the front lawn. We used the bikes everyday to go to the local beach which was about four blocks away. Great Sunsets at "Sharkys" just down on the beach. Easy access to the Venice Avenue where all the shops and great restaurants were. Coming home in the afternoon and showering in the outside shower before a dip in the pool. We attended Christmas services at the beautiful Epiphany Cathedral which was a block from Venice Avenue. We were there for two weeks and never had a need to leave the area. The grocery store was right near by also. Best of all the, owners were very responsive to any of my phone calls leading up to the rental and while I was there. I give this place a A+ rating. Everything was great and my family and I were very happy with the accommodations. Thank you Kevin for the wonderful memories I will take with me. You do a great job managing this property.

Relaxing...Good vibes ...great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kevin's house.....He did a great job renovating the house...the garden with it's sitting area is a great place to relax (only suggestion: maybe some celiling fans for the covered porch)...the pool great for a dip or even swimming laps...house has all amenties one could wish for and is very nicely decorated....the location great: shopping, dining, beach all a few minutes away by bike...loved having those and made ample use of them!!!....Kevin eas also great: we had a maintenance issue which was resolved promptly.... All in all we had a great, relaxing vacation in this wonderful home with good vibes....Our egotistical side hopes the place does not become too popular...WE WANT TO COME BACK!

Home for the Holiday...

  • 5 of 5

The home was so comfortable and very well equipped. The location on the island is great; you can walk or ride a bike to the beach, shops and restaurants on Venice Avenue or to the grocery store. The owners are very nice and want their guests to be happy. They are available for any needs, concerns or questions you may have.

My husband and I grew up in Venice and it was great to be here for Thanksgiving in a true home away from home. We would love to come back.

Lovely relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a true home from home with everything in the house one could ask for. We were there for our 25th wedding anniversry and liked the fact it was an 8 minute cycle ride to the beach at sharkys and 4 minutes to down town. Totally chilled out. Beautiful house, swimming pool was great and would definitely go back.

Would recommend this lovely home 100%. We loved the beautiful homey decor, the huge range of kitchen equipment and the oversize pool, not to mention the hammock, the bikes and even a fishing rod. Our 'grown up' kids enjoyed the range of dvd's and that they could even watch English premier league football on the multi channel tv. We were particularly impressed with the private location, surrounded by trees and flowers and in a quiet residential neighbourhood. Best bit was cycling to Sharkeys pier early in the morning to watch the dolphins.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! It had everything we needed.I would recommend it to anyone. It had games for the kids, pool, grill, outdoor shower, everything. The pool was very large! We really enjoyed going to the beach and shark tooth hunting. We found over 1200 teeth! The bikes were very helpful. We went out and rode them everyday to go to the downtown streets of Venice. We defianantly will be coming back soon. My dad bought a shark tooth skimmer and left it there for everyone else to use. So I hope you enjoy using it. It was very helpful. We happened to be at the home when tropical storm Andrea hit. We visited the ocean that night and the scenery was beautiful. Children and parents of all ages would find this home amazing. I was amazed by all the lizards and enjoyed attempting to catch them.
