About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Home With A Private Pool Only Minutes From 4 Beaches

This home has been renovated and updated for a truly wonderful vacation getaway. The most recent update is new 8ft privacy fencing that has been installed on 2 SIDES of the properties back yard (But entire yard is fenced in). Our home is located in the South Venice area in a suburban neighborhood. It has two renovated and updated bathrooms, kitchen with granite counter tops with breakfast bar, stainless steal appliances, and three bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom has a trundle bed and doubles as an office space or reading area for couples or small groups that do not need a 3rd bedroom. This home has one of the larger private pools in the neighborhood. The pool is heated by a hybrid heating system and it keeps the pool warm even on cooler winter days. There is NO extra charge for heating the pool! The two main bedrooms have DISH TV with new flat screen TVs as well as another flat screen TV in the living room. Free Wifi in the home. You are also provided with a grill and propane in the backyard lanai.

Most people will find it hard to leave your personal private pool but there are 4 different beaches close by. In addition, Shamrock Park and an Inland Waterway are a short walk or bicycle ride away. Shamrock park has walking trails, a nature center, tennis courts, a play ground, and basketball courts. There are also golf courses in town.

This home and location are perfect for both active vacationers, families, and those just looking to relax. It is not a home or town for "spring breakers". We ask that all renters be kind and considerate of our neighbors and take good care of the home for the next renters. We are sure you will love this home and the beautiful town of Venice. We supply beach chairs, towels, toys, shark teeth strainers, tennis rackets, and bicycles.

We want everyone to enjoy their vacation. We want to make sure our house is what you are looking for. Please ask questions so we can make sure you are getting the vacation experience you want.

About Ryan Holder

My wife Lee and I live in New Hampshire. We are both therapists. She works at a psychiatric hospital and I run a child and family practice with my father. We recently had our first child, Jon and he is amazing. We love to be active and go kayaking, canoeing, and biking, but we also love to kick back and relax.

Ryan Holder purchased this house in 2014

Why Ryan Holder chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

My grandparents had a seasonal home in Venice so I have been visiting since I was a child. Now my parents own a home there that they use as a vacation home as well and have been very successfully renting for 6 years now. Lee and I chose this home because we love the area and we know what type of people will love it too. It's important to find the right vacation match for you and we feel comfortable recommending this home to almost any vacationer. Ask us questions!!! We want it to be an unforgettable vacation home experience for you! You'll never think of condos or hotels again!!

What makes this house unique

It has the things we love and more.... including being in walking distance to Shamrock Park and the Inland Waterway, which are two beautiful walking biking, playing areas that are right at your fingertips. That was a big sell for us. Also, we love that you can reach 4 different beaches in 10 minutes or less. We love to go to the Venice Pier and walk out over the ocean and then grab a drink at Sharky's before we jump in for a swim. This home also has the largest pool in the neighborhood and you can truly swim in it unlike some of the smaller 'dipper pools' in Florida. The biking is beautiful along the waterway. We have not yet done the Legacy trail, but I have heard it is nice as well. There are also golf courses in town. Lastly the town of's a true gem. There are not many classy small towns on the coast of Florida anymore. You'll love it if you ARE NOT looking to be smothered by 10 story condos while on your vacation. And lastly, the sunsets. Enjoy the sunsets. Our favorite routine is a walk or bike in the morning in the park, beach around noon, back to our personal private pool for the afternoon and early dinner cooking on the grill, and then back to the beach for sunset. You can kick back and relax or get out and have an adventure, whatever works for your vacation. Enjoy!

Clean home with a fantastic pool area!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in Ryan and Lee's home for two weeks and we enjoyed every minute of it. The house is clean and comfortable, close to beaches, shopping and so much more. We spent many hours in the pool area, especially with a cup of coffee early mornings and a cold drink during evening. Of course we also loved having a dip in the fantastic pool any time of the day. The home is well equipped with toiletries and cleaning equipment and the kitchen has all the basics plus it was a great bonus having a full size laundry machine and dryer. We were also very pleased with all the beach equipment - umbrellas, lots of towels, beach chairs and beach toys. We drove around to different beaches in the area but found ourselves loving the Siesta keys beach and the private South Venice beach the most. The ferry to South Venice beach is really close to the house, only five minutes drive away. The beach is very calm and we found a lot of shark teeth's which the kids were really happy about! Ryan, the owner, is really friendly and prompt to reply. We would recommend this property and we might also consider going back!

Amazing Time/Wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Our experience in Venice was a great one! Ryan and his family sure know how to cater to travelers. You can find absolutely anything you'll ever need in this property and plenty of it. It was clean and comfortable. Our 4 year-old girl and my 9 month-old baby had a blast. There was beach equipment, toys and even floats for both of them. Not to mention, I didn't even have to pack a crib! The baby swing was my son's favorite pastime, and my daughter's was the pool. Conveniently, along with this property, you get a pass to go on the South Venice Beach Ferry. The beach is gorgeous, and the boat ride short but very pleasant. There are many business and options around, especially the very charming Venice Historic Downtown. Also, it is close to Siesta Key, the #1 beach in America, and Manasota Key!

We spent 4 weeks at this lovely property. The home was clean , nicely decorated and has an awesome heated pool. It's in a great location near Shamrock Park which was perfect for walking and biking . Shopping centers and beaches are close by. The home was well stocked with the cleaning supplies . The kitchen had all the utensils , pots and pans, dishes and small appliances one would use daily. There was even a crockpot which was greatly appreciated. The home owner, Ryan , was readily available to answer any questions or concerns we had. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again .

The Ultimate Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place!!! My husband and I rented the house for our families get together in mid June thru mid July 2016. The place was extremely clean and well taken care of both inside and out. Well stocked with toiletries to get you started, just need to fill the refrigerator. Stereo in Kitchen, bring your flash drive to play your favorite tunes. The kitchen was equipped everything you need to enjoy a home cooked meal. Complete with a BBQ grill in the pool area. The very large pool area was awesome with a pool cage / lanai that helps keep the bugs out and a sun shade for us older folks. Doggie and kid heaven for swimming and running around in the backyard with a 8 foot privacy fence. For the boat owner's there is plenty of room to park your boat in the driveway.

Enjoyed the bicycles that were provided to ride through Shamrock Park and then on Legacy Trail that leads from Venice all the way to Sarasota. It is a spectacular ride along the Intracoastal Waterway. We only got as far as the old train depot where there is the Venice Train Depot Public Boat Ramp.

We used the locate boat ramp and boated over to a place called Snake Island which is located between the North & South Jetties with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Snake Island is a local hangout where you can take the dogs and kids via boat and just relax with a cocktail in your hand while floating in the water. Lots of wonderful beaches to enjoy and Venice is the Shark's tooth Capital. What a wonderful place to live & Vacation!!!

Thanks so much,
