We provide a friendly old Florida atmosphere for our guests who tell us they come away refreshed and pleased. Watch the parade of boats on the waterway and the hikers and bikers from your porch. We provide beach equipment too. Rent a bike just around the corner on Tamiami Trail. Bike to Casperson Beach and find prehistoric shark teeth in the sand..
If sunrise is your favorite time, lay in the hammock in the back yard and watch the sun come up over Scenic Lake. View the spectacular sunsets from the front porch.
Take a walk in downtown Venice past boutique and antique shops run by their owners---no large franchises here. You'll also find excellent dining from breakfast through supper. Read our 'Venice Underground' book for recommendations. A favorite after dinner treat is an evening at The Venice Theatre, a consistent national award-winning theater.

Garage parking and laundry. Comforts include a bath with Roman shower and tub---wheelchair accessible. LCD TV with FIOS, DVD, and CD and stereo sound. WiFi available too.

We love the climate and friendly community. Our location is a country setting in town, easy access to sports, entertainment, shopping, and restaurants. Join Elin Larsen on the beach each morning for Yoga. We love our home and our guests do too.
The breezes, the sky---the massive cloud formations are Florida's mountains. We have cool air in the mornings---even in summer. Then in the afternoon we can get our sunny tans at the beach. There is always something to do, see, or someone to visit with. We love to share all this with our guests.
We have stayed in this lovely efficiency for the past two years and have enjoyed every minute! Rich and McClaren are wonderful hosts and have thought of everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The furnishings are comfortable and lovely with all that is needed for a short or long term stay. And the location is in a quiet part of Venice close to town with easy access to the bike trails for walking or biking. A great advantage. It is short drive to beaches, restaurants, shops, the two wonderful libraries and the many other advantages that this lovely town has to offer. We look forward to our next trip back!
Senior Friendship Center, one block away, provides physical activities such as dancing and yoga for ages 50 plus Monday through Friday in addition to Bridge and card games, lectures, memoir writing, lunch, and snacks.
