About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Welcome to one of the finest Gulf Coast rental values in the area.

At this beautiful coastal community, you will find perhaps the most relaxing beach and well-equipped condominium in the area. We have taken great care to provide you with everything you will need during your stay. We are focused on providing you with a superior rental experience, beginning with a comfortable and clean property, premium furnishings and household items, and unique added features that you will not find with most other properties in this price range, including free use of bicycles and golf clubs, among other things.

In fact, if there is something that you think would make your stay more comfortable, please contact us with your suggestion. We will make every attempt to provide these for you (within reason).

We have been renting our condo for only a few years, but we are convinced that our philosophy works.

We believe strongly that a highly satisfied rental client is very likely to be a repeat customer. In return, we expect that a customer intending to re-book is also very likely to take care of the property in the same manner that they would care for their own home. In this way, we both win.

About Nick

We lived in Michigan for 25 years while working in the auto industry. A vacation condo in Florida had been a dream that we were finally able to achieve in 2005. We visited over Christmas, Spring Break and any other chances we could find, and we offered it for occasional rentals to help defray the expense. However, with the downturn in the auto industry, we have recently moved to California and have few opportunities to travel to Florida to enjoy our condo. Not wanting to part with it for various reasons, we have decided to expand our rental window and keep it with the hopes of a not-too-distant retirement.

Nick purchased this condo in 2005

Why Nick chose Venice

When we began looking for a place to buy, the primary goal was to find a quiet place where we could get a suntan on the beach at Christmas. We searched almost the entire Gulf Coast south of Tampa (south of the Frost Line) looking for the right community. Most of what we found were over-developed or high-rise properties in congested locations. The Island of Venice appealed to us because there are no busy roads to contend with, and it has a quaint, walkable, downtown area where you can browse the stores, see live entertainment, or grab an ice cream. It is a completely relaxed town, free of high-speed bustle and high-dollar pressure of many of the other South Gulf Coast communities.

What makes this condo unique

The community organizes clubhouse mixers, putting tournaments, exercise classes, and gardening groups among other activities. There is even an informal nightly gathering to share a cocktail and a conversation in the cabana while watching the sun set over the gulf. There really are very few places like this.

Attractive condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo in December, 2014. It's as nice as the photos show and had everything we needed. A coffee maker wasn't working right and within two days the owner had a new one delivered to the house. It was nice to be right on the quiet beach, watched sunsets most nights. Aldea Mar is a pretty setting and close to all the attractions on the beautiful island of Venice.

We keep coming back--since 2008!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this unit for many winters--always like to open the door to this comfortable condo! Like dealing with these owners--they really do try to keep their place "up to date" and comfortable for their tenants. We'll be back again in 2015!

Loving Venice

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay. The pool was great, WARM. The grounds and the buildings are very well maintained. You really do get a very tropical feel with all the palm trees and the banyan trees. We opened the door of the condo and we were like WOW, this is a really nice, spacious, well taken care of condo. Everything you needed was supplied and maintained. It was great having a washer and dryer in the unit. The owners thought of everything to make our stay great. The beach area was very nice, we spent alot of time on beach. Sharks teeth were plentiful, my husband collected about 500 to 600 and some of them were really good size. He was in his glory. We love Venice as we have visited the area for many years. We would recommend Aldea Mar and of course the condo we stayed in and will hopefully return.

Venice is a quiet place where you could get a suntan on the beach at Christmas. The Island of Venice offers the unique freedom from having to contend with busy roads. It has a quaint, walkable, downtown area where you can browse the stores, see live entertainment, or grab an ice cream. It is a completely relaxed town, free of high-speed bustle and high-dollar pressure of many of the other South Gulf Coast communities.

Aldea Mar offers the combination of open spaces, well-cared for land and property, excellent swimming at the beach or pool, and overall peacefulness. The grounds are spacious, with meandering paths through the well-maintained property that even has a manicured putting green. No buildings are over two stories high, and there is an instant sense of belonging. It is an established community with mature trees and a charming village layout surrounding the community facilities which include a swimming pool, shuffleboard, activity center, putting green and beach cabana.

Other Activities: shopping, boating, parasailing, wildlife viewing, basketball court, miniature golf
