About Alexandra Marks

We discovered Venice by chance - some friends from Italy brought us here and it was love-at-first-visit! I'm a writer and Martin is an entrepreneur. We live in New York and lead pretty hectic lives. When we take a break, we need to really relax. Here we bike, read, swim, eat and watch splendid sunsets. It's a perfect retreat.

Alexandra Marks purchased this condo in 2015

Why Alexandra Marks chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This was the first place we looked at in Venice and decided it was just right. It's on the beach, but set back. For a condominium it's also surprisingly private. The beach has just been rejuvenated and is wide and white and the water is emerald green and warm. It's perfect for swimming. Aldea Mar also has a pool, a putting green and shuffleboard. There is golf down the road and splendid beaches all around. Downtown Venice is a walk away and full of great local shops, restaurants and homemade ice cream parlors. There's also a Public supermarket just a mile away. You never need to leave the Island!

What makes this condo unique

We've always wanted a little place on the water. At Aldea Mar, we can sit on our deck and watch the most splendid sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico, read while listening to the gentle waves and wind clacking through the palms, and watch pelicans feed and other birds soar just overhead. We hope you'll love it, too!

We enjoyed our vacation at Aldea Mar. We loved the condominium, very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The beach was our front yard, what a great way to wake up each morning. The sunsets were beautiful each night totally different. The pool was perfect. Parks and trails easily accessible by bike or car. Venice is such a quaint town, a step back in time. Thank you for sharing with us.

Amazing quality

  • 4 of 5

This condo was just amazing! The high quality oozed from the high thread count linens to the Williams and Sonoma kitchen. Huge Tvs in the family and master were so nice. We loved the Murphy bed/office combo which allowed a perfect playroom by day and bed for the kids at night. The only drawback was the view was blocked by the dunes, which I expected as I have visited Venice many times and was aware of the dunes, but everything else was magical. We will be back!!

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at your condo!! The unit is fully equipped with anything we needed. It couldn't be a more perfect spot right on the beach. The pool and amenities were great and the sunsets incredible right from our family room!! Looking forward to returning next year.

Best Place in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo is a 5+! We absolutely loved our stay and can't wait until we can return again. The location could not be any more perfect. Only steps to the beach and to the gorgeous pool. And so convenient to the charming downtown shops area of Venice, to great restaurants, to great biking trails, etc. etc. The complex is off the busy streets and so charming and we felt so safe there the entire time. We met so many nice people who were also enjoying Alde Mar as either owners or renters. They all want us to return again - and we truly hope we can. This was the nicest place we have ever found in our years of going to Venice. It was recently updated and absolutely gorgeous. The bed was a dream, the kitchen beautiful and well stocked, both baths were wonderful, and all the extras that were provided for the guests, made it feel like home. I could write pages of how pleased we were with every little detail the owners went out of the way to do to make this so special. We only hope it doesn't become so popular that it is difficult to rent again :). But I still have to give the highest praise to this wonderful place. Thank you! Until next time - Marsha and Jim

Home from home on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This very well equipped condo is to be highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a comfortable peaceful holiday . We had a great time exploring Venice and the surrounding area. The beaches are great for shark tooth hunting as well as strolling . Restaurants in Venice are many and lots of choice. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner to help make our stay relaxing. Thank you again for the use of this lovely and very well equipped condo.

Venice is one of Florida’s elegant older cities, rich in Mediterranean architecture with a palm tree-lined downtown full of locally owned ships. Small and friendly, the city also boasts miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches right Gulf of Mexico as well as direct access to the Legacy Trail on the Intracoastal Waterway.

Venice beaches are famous for their fossilized shark's teeth. In addition to Golden Beach, which is steps from our door, there are 4 others less than 10 car minutes away. They include Casperson Beach, Brohard Paw Park (where doggies are welcome!), Venice Beach, and South Venice Beach, a seven mile long gem which can only be reached by ferry. The best thing about our beaches, though, is that even during high season, they are never crowded!

Golfers come from around the world to our award-winning golf courses. Lake Venice Golf Course is just a mile from the house. Other courses include Bird Bay Executive Golf Club, Capri Isles Golf Club, and Waterford Golf Club.

The Shamrock Park & Nature Center is free and is located on the southernmost end of the Venetian Waterway Park Trail (aka Venice Bike Trail). It’s on the mainland side of Venice. The park includes a nature museum, picnic pavilions, playground area, tennis and basketball courts, restrooms, coldwater drinking fountains, and nature trails.

Downtown Venice is lined with wonderful small shops, very good restaurants and two home-made ice cream parlors.

Venice is central to countless other Florida attractions.

-Have fun at Busch Gardens in Tampa or at Disney World in Orlando

-Take a trip to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota or the Salvador Dali Museum in St.Petersburg

-Explore the Everglades in the South

-Go shopping in the Designer Ellenton Premium Outlet

All is within easy driving distance!
