About Kevin Callahan

Husband and I bought this place because we just love Venice Island. Beaches are more private than many other in Florida! Park in the dunes! Downtown Venice has real charm to it! Very hometown and friendly community with alot of free or inexpensive amenities which are open to the public (rare in FL). There are no condos or buildings on the closest beaches near us-pure nature, beautiful!!!

Kevin Callahan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kevin Callahan chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This property is great because it is completely updated but has that 'Old Florida' feel. Renters come back year after year, mostly repeat business. We keep it super clean, comfortable beachy furnishing and well stocked for your vacation stay.

What makes this condo unique

The location is very central to many things, and super quiet, you can hear the church bells ring. This along with cleanliness, relaxing feel and furnishings this is why renters tell me they keep coming back.

Super Stay in Venice, Fl (Review by obxkayaker)

  • 5 of 5

This centrally located duplex home in Venice is a wonderful choice for vacation travel. The house is very nicely furnished with plenty of seating in the living room and very comfy beds in the two bedrooms. It is also well equipped with a very functional kitchen and a very comfortable lanai out back. The carport parking is convenient for bringing groceries and other items into the house. Our two small dogs were completely at home in a matter of hours. The area is ideal for biking with three bikes available in the utility room. An easy bike ride down Airport Road will take you to the concrete bike path that parallels the scenic Venice waterway for a couple of miles and separates the "island" from the remainder of Venice. There are some excellent waterfront restaurants in the area - Sharky's and Pop's Sunset Grill (Nokomis) are first rate. If you want to see some authentic backwoods Florida wilderness, check out the Myakka River boat tour to see wildlife and the incredibly scenic river. Kevin, the owner, is completely responsive to any concerns you might have and very cordial to deal with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would most definitely consider a much longer stay at this same property at some future date. All in all - highly recommended !!

Our Venice Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week. It's prettier than the pictures. Gorgeous vegetation around the grounds for an added tropical effect and privacy. Inside was immaculate with new Pergo floors and tiled kitchen and bathroom. Everything for the beach was there. Our location was great. 5 minute drive to Casperson Beach. Location in a wonderfully quiet, quaint neighborhood. The owner is a terrific guy. Very conscientious that everything is perfect. Would highly recommend this house. Love Venice and all the neighboring barrier islands. Want to come back next year.
