About the property

Comfortable, Easy Venice Condo on the Golfcourse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Handsomely furnished 1st floor condominium overlooks the fifth green of one of two Ron Garl designed 18-hole championship (an LPGA qualifier has been played here for the last 29 years) golf courses with a beautiful swimming pool solely for the residents at Farmington Vistas.

Monthly rentals can obtain assignment of our social membership at the private Plantation Golf and Country Club, which gains you access to the Club's outstanding dining room, lounge and terrace, special events, activities, junior Olympic pool, Jacuzzi, state-of-the-art fitness center and group classes. Golf privileges are no longer available through the social membership and golf membership must be purchased separately. Four rounds of tennis are available per month (fees additional).

The tranquility and natural beauty of the area makes for an ideal vacation or extended stay. Some of Florida’s best beaches are a mere 12 minute drive. There are more than 10 public or semi-private golf courses within 8 miles. Fishing, boating, biking and birding . . . there is plenty to offer the active outdoors enthusiast. Shopping and dining in Venice are also top-notch.

This ground floor unit allows easy access without any stairs or elevators. It is also an end unit with large Bahama shutters that allow more air and light into the master suite with views of lush tropical plants. Drapes can be drawn to provide night-time privacy. Parking is available for one vehicle under the detached carport with additional off-street parking for guests.

The convenient galley kitchen is fully equipped with electric ceramic cooktop and oven, refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and toaster as well as dishes, cutlery, glassware, table linens, pots, pans and utensils. A closet pantry provides ample storage for infrequently used appliances and your personal provisions.

The bright and airy master bedroom has a king size bed, walk-in wardrobe, cable television, en-suite bath with walk-in shower and two separate vanities. Sliding glass doors from the master bedroom enter onto the screened lanai. The guest bedroom has a queen bed and large wardrobe closet; the adjacent bath has a full tub.

Full-size front-loading high efficiency washer and dryer is off the master bedroom. Linens, bath and beach towels are supplied. The main living room has sliding glass doors which open onto a tiled and screened lanai overlooking the golf course.

The screened and tiled lanai is west-facing and has outdoor seating for dining al fresco and watching sunsets. This first floor condo also has a private patio and pergola with tropical plantings that invite you to walk outside.

The Farmington Vistas community heated pool and clubhouse are a mere 50 steps away and free for your use. Community barbecue grills and Wi-Fi are available at the clubhouse. A small library can extend your reading.

We realize most people carry cell phones these days, however we do provide a land-line phone for emergencies and your convenience. We also provide high speed wi-fi in the condo for easy internet access without relying on the community access at the pool. Additional reference information regarding local beaches, golfing, recreational activities, dining and the closest pharmacies and emergency medical access is provided for your convenience.

Smoking and pets are not allowed.

About Jennifer Perry

We are from the mountains of New Hampshire. We enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, boating and golf. We also love to travel and have found that Venice and the Gulf Coast of Florida are as nice as any place we have visited. When we're home, we love gardening and 'yardening.'

Jennifer Perry purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jennifer Perry chose Venice

The beautiful Gulf Coast sunsets, endless beaches, and friendly sunny people make you feel right at home. It is easy to lead a healthy and active lifestyle year round.

We are also avid birders and have really enjoyed the incredible bird and wild life in the area.

Getting to Venice is easy with access to either Sarasota (SRQ), Fort Myers (RSW) or Tampa (TPA) airports.

What makes this condo unique

We love sitting on both the lanai and outdoor patio, sipping our morning coffee and tea, with gentle breezes in the palms and pines. Sandhill cranes occasionally stroll by as golfers work their way up the Bobcat course. We love to walk over to the pool for an easy dip in the morning or after a day on the course. Sublime!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great vacation at the Plantation

  • 5 of 5


We stayed at the Southern Plantation in November and December. The unit was spotless, well equipped and comfortable. It was a short walk to the pool. Shopping, dining, and beaches were easy to get to. We loved sitting in the screened lanai watching the various birds,squirrels, and golfers and enjoyed the flat walking access throughout the plantation. A great place that’s friendly and comfortable. Scott and Jennifer were easy to work with.

Great location great owners

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for a week in this ultra clean and well equipped 2 bedroom condo. everything that we needed was there. The condo sits on the 6th green of course very nice patio on bottom floor easy in and easy out. The neighbors were great very helpful and friendly. The pool was nice place to hang out if you were not at any of the amazing gulf beaches all within 30 minutes easy drive. The

Plenty to do if your not a beach person, shopping is close great restaurants in the area. Jen and Scott are great to work with they make sure your stay is a good one. We would go back in a minute.

Wonderful Venice Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave! It was very clean and comfortable, with great views of the golf course. We loved sitting out on the lanai, there was always something to watch...golfers....birds....blossoms, and yet it was very peaceful and quiet. The kitchen was well equipped, and when we felt like grilling, we used the grills at the pool. The pool was particularly lovely, very well maintained and very pleasant with warm sunny spots or cooler shade under the palms.

We had several wonderful meals at the Club, the menu selections were perfect and the food was very good. The atmosphere was welcoming and staff very professional and friendly.

We really enjoyed exploring the Venice area with all the great beaches, trips up to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and the Ringling Museum and down to Boca Grande.

The owners were very easy to work with and made reserving very easy. We will be back!

Venice condo experience

  • 4 of 5

Great location with a fine view of the golf course. Very comfortable living accommodations.

Any issues we had were minor and quickly taken care of. The condo association takes good care of the grounds and the pool facilities. Very pleasant experience.

Great Condo and Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us - we had a wonderful time at the condo - it was clean, comfortable (felt like home) and had everything we could possibly need. Jennifer was a pleasure to work with and quick to answer all my questions prior to our visit. We had breakfast in the lania watching the golfers, birds and even spotted an alligator on the pond's edge. We went to a different beach everyday (all are beautiful and each a little different). Downtown Venice is adorable with tons of restaurant choices - they had the Sun Festival when we were there for the weekend which was lots of fun with bands, food and vendors. We also went to Sharkey's (awesome sunsets), Crow's Nest (little more upscale), Pops (very casual) and Luna (delicious Italian) - all were a little different. We loved having the pool just a few steps from the condo and met several people (everyone is very friendly). We would highly recommend staying here - we liked Farmington Vistas so much that we ended up buying a place of our own.

Owner's Response: It sounds like you really got out there and experienced what Venice is all about! Great beaches, great dining, plenty to do or simply kick back and relax. Congratulations on purchasing your own Farmington Vistas condo and welcome to the Club! We look forward to crossing paths.
