On a sunny island with a nearby beach, you’ll sleep comfortably in the heart of Venice Island, FL. Just four blocks from the Gulf of Mexico, 606 Harbor Drive South House offers guests exclusive, deeded access to a private beach (rightly named ‘Golden Beach’).
Enjoy both sides of Florida life in Venice - the picture-postcard beach vacation with gorgeous sunsets and a warm sense of genuine community in the nearby town. Walk just eight blocks toward the charming town of Venice to find coffee shops, seafood restaurants, and great window shopping. Both Venice Beach and the famous Venice landmark Sharky’s on the Pier are both within walking or biking distance.
Enjoy ocean views while dining and take an after-dinner walk along the pier extending into the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, the house is just a five-minute drive to the white sands of beautiful Casey Key.
Though perfectly placed between beach and town, you can sit in this vacation home’s private backyard and enjoy time utterly to yourself. Flowering trees and lush landscaping make it a welcoming haven, whether for reading a book or enjoying sea breezes on the covered patio.
The home recently changed ownership and many upgrades and renovations have been completed. The interior has been freshly painted and the cool terrazzo floors have been beautifully refinished. There are new furnishings, including new beds, mattresses, linens, flat-screen TVs, and lighting, throughout. A new dryer was installed in the convenient laundry area. The house has a clean, fresh, more modern feel and is now ready to be thoroughly enjoyed by our guests!
With two beds, 1 full bathroom and 1 extra utility room with toilet and sink, and a sleeper sofa that increases the available accommodation to sleep six guests, this house offers fantastic value. Harbor Drive South is one of a very few available Venice Island homes that can be rented for shorter stays (as short as 1 week). You can also rent Harbor Drive South for a month or more at discounted rates. Why not make it your winter base and invite family and other couples to join you in the sun?
While in and around the house, everyone is assured of great comfort and privacy. All of the new mattresses including the queen sized mattress in the designer brand pull out couch, are extremely comfortable. A large living room feels all the more so thanks to high ceilings, with cooling Terrazzo tile underfoot.
Guests with laptops will appreciate the convenience of high-speed Internet, and all will enjoy flat screen TVs with cable and HDTV. The second bedroom has an additional flat screen TV which adds convenience for families with children or couples vacationing together.
Return from an enjoyable golf game at one of Venice’s many courses and enjoy an evening cocktail with loved ones. Walk together just a few minutes to the beach for the spectacular Gulf sunsets. From there - who knows? With such a fantastic location, you’ll be able to live your vacation moment by moment. We have also located a 15-minute walk or quick car ride to Browhard Paw Park (the famous Venice Dog Park).

Nice place, plenty of space for 4 with a pup!
We were impressed with the amount of living space and the layout was perfect. The screened in porch and laundry room were a huge bonus. We would definitely stay here again.
Cold January but a quaint condo!
We have stayed at this cozy property previously and like being just a ten minute walk from downtown. The property is not luxurious but all the basics are provided and the kitchen is well stocked (no dishwasher but we don't mind hand dishwashing!) The crumbling driveway has been replaced since last year. We love having our own washer and dryer. The main bedroom has one new window that cuts down on some of the busy road noise, but the south window is still a louvred window that allows in too much road noise due to the angle of the busy intersection, especially on the bi-weekly garbage pick up days. If you are a light sleeper this could be a problem for you, however there is another bedroom available to use. The front key code entry door can be tricky but it was replaced during our stay and then worked well for us. It would be helpful to have a key code for the back door also in case the front door lock malfunctions overnight. We are hoping for warmer weather next January!
Very nice house with all amenities within driving distance to the beach. Too far to walk. But the area is very nice.
Quaint, clean but decor is not high end for the price you pay after all of the add-on fees.
This condo is clean and comfortable but not updated like high end condo/motel rentals from major rental chains. Venice is a quiet town dedicated to the many senior citizens that live there. The streets and sidewalks are very well maintained so it is easy to walk everywhere on the island safely except for the semi-circular driveway of this condo unit where the asphalt is falling apart into large chunks that are easy to trip over. The interior of the condo is well maintained and clean. The street traffic is quite noisy during the day because it is on a major thoroughfare and another street dead ends in front of this condo. Traffic noise begins picking up right around 7:00am or at sun up with many large lawn care and city vehicles traveling on Harbor Drive. Convenient access to the beach except that you cannot park your car at the closest beach, Golden Beach, without a special pass, it is for members only. It is about a ten minute walk to Golden Beach. Many other beaches are available with adequate parking. It is very nice to have a washer and dryer available in the unit.
WE had a very good visit with family in Venice and appreciated the comfortable home base. The bed was a little hard for us. We like the pillow top beds we find at some facilities. Other than being on a busy street and hearing a few trucks in the morning, it was a very good stay for us.
While the accomodations were not luxurious, it was plenty for our group of 6. The beaches were what made the getaway. The location of the property was great -- close to a selection of beaches. The house was located in a nice quiet neighborhood, with our house probably one of the simplest ones -- but that was okay. Publix was very close by, as well as various shops of Venice. Nokomis Beach was the best beach, and the drive along Casey Key that was lined with multi million dollar homes was fun. The nearby beach with Sharkys was great for finding shark's teeth. Some may mind the noise in the second bedroom because it has an air conditioner unit that has to be run all day. It has an air vent, but it needs more. It's an addition. All other rooms did fine with central air. But really, when we consider what we paid, we cannot complain. We would stay there again.
