About Sheldon and Nadine Charles
We are Canadian residents who absolutely love visiting Florida! With Canada’s minus-20 degree weather in the winter months, we look for any opportunity to visit the Sunshine State to soak up the rays at the pool, visit the theme parks, or do some great shopping! While we have been to both the Orlando and Tampa areas frequently over the last 10 years, we decided to purchase a vacation/rental home in Kissimmee, because we get the best of everything in this area. My husband and I prefer to cook simple meals in our kitchen at Venetian Bay, while the kids go to the pool, bike or skateboard around the resort. We have two sons, ages 15 and 12, who are quite knowledgeable about the Kissimmee area for attractions, activities, shopping and restaurants. They enjoy our home at Venetian Bay because they are not in a cramped hotel room, and they have enough space to enjoy their vacation both inside the home and on the resort grounds. We love pets! However, please note that while the home and resort is pet-friendly, all pets must be 20lbs or less. We have a fur-baby but he has not been to this home as he is over the size limit.
Sheldon and Nadine Charles purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Sheldon and Nadine Charles chose Venetian Bay Villages
We looked at numerous properties in the Kissimmee area, before deciding to purchase this home in Venetian Bay. The resort is located off a quiet street next to a school and fire station. When driving up to the main gate, we felt a great sense of security because of the manned security booth. Driving through the resort, the multi-coloured homes on different streets and court-yards provided a 'vacation feel' which was very appealing. We easily imagined ourselves walking to the pool, or sitting under the gazebo. The friendliness and professionalism of the Reception, Club House and Business Centre made us feel like it was 'home away from home', which is what we want our renters to feel as well!
What makes this Townhome unique
Our home faces away from the parking lot and common guest areas. Because of this, it is very private and allows renters to enjoy the lovely grassy area right outside the front door. Because there is no building in front of us, you can open the curtains and windows to get a nice breeze through the home. Great for afternoon naps! When we thought of how to upgrade the unit, we decided to use colours, furniture and accessories that would appeal to a number of renters, but also to us. We wanted a no-fuss environment that instilled calm, and was easy to maintain – for both us and our renters. We have achieved this, and hope you like it too!

Love this place!
Had a great experience. For the price we paid we each had our own room and no waiting to use bathrooms. The owner, Nadine, was very informative and helpful from the time we booked until we left. Everything was as she said and more. I would definitely be booking here again. Loved it, don’t change a thing.
Property managers were amazing and communicated. Everything was as is in the photos.
Venetian Bay Village
Not too recent but in good shape.
Air Cond needs may be to be upgraded as it cannot go under 75Deg.
It would nice to indicate on the listing the main entrance location as the address brings us to the back entrance which is not accessible w/o clicker ! It was quite impossible to contact the management.
The owner was able to help us.
Quite decent place, good neighborhood and community
It was overall a good experience
Great location, beautiful place
Clean and Quiet. Charming Condo Community
Great location. Three pools to choose from along side a quiet blend of nature. Condo was very clean and modern. Would stay here again.
What is there to see and do around Venetian Bay? Everything! Take it from us - a Canadian family who visits Kissimmee at least twice a year. It is FABULOUS! We have two teenagers who just love to be at this resort in Kissimmee because of all the active and leisurely activities they can engage in. Golf, SeaWorld, Disney, Universal, Gatorland, shopping, eating, beaches and overall relaxation has made our family vacations easy and extremely affordable.
From family friendly activities to romantic spots, you can find it all in this area. Our townhouse is very central, just 2 block from the I-192, where you can get everything you want in a vacation, both relaxing and stimulating.

Our spacious townhome with full kitchen and laundry will ensure that you can enhance your family's time together, and make lasting memories in a beautiful and relaxing environment.
After a thrilling day in one of the parks, or a long day of shopping, you can relax in one of the resorts four pools/hot tub, take a leisurely walk by the lake, bike ride, or watch the sunset. Because Venetian Bay is very strict on security and maintenance, you will enjoy the freedom of knowing that the entire resort is focused on your comfort and safety.
Our townhouse is managed by our Property Manager who can be reached 24/7 for any emergencies. You are also free to contact us, the Owners, to discuss your needs.

For your shopping convenience for personal items, groceries, etc., Walmart, Target, Publix are a few minutes away and are directly off the I-192. Hospitals are also nearby, and the local Firestation is minutes away from this resort.
Our kids have loved the convenience of walking out the door of the townhouse and going to the lake to visit their 'lake friends' - the birds and fish. We have enjoyed walking to the Clubhouse patio and putting our feet up by the pool for the day, and also watching the lights on the lake in the evening. Even if we don't leave the resort for the day, we feel like we have accomplished the simple task of enjoying each others company. And isn't that what vacations are for?
This is also a great resort for Snowbirds who are looking to rent the home for a few months at a time. We have low monthly rates and are very accommodating to your needs.
