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.

Such a charming place to stay in a great location close to beaches, food and fun.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay on our recent trip. The house was very clean, inviting and comfortable after a long day of traveling. It was the perfect size for our family. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, we were never crowded or in each others way. The boys especially liked the color changing shower head in the master bathroom. We all enjoyed the cable, watching movies and great Wi-Fi and relaxing after many long days at the nearby beaches. Having a great little kitchen and grill at our disposal, we only went out to eat once the whole week. We made use of the bikes, fishing gear and beach toys and even left a few behind for the next guests to enjoy. Everyone felt so comfortable with the house, beds, and charming décor that we could have moved in immediately! This was our second trip to Venice (first with the kids, 11 & 13) and we love the area so much. Everyone, including Kevin, is so friendly and helpful. If we had any questions at all, he got right back to us with an answer or was willing to stop by and help us out. The location is within walking distance to the beach and fishing pier, and close distance to Caspersen Beach, downtown Venice, and the grocery stores. We also didn't have far to go to find a fresh seafood market, dive shop and surf shop. We enjoyed our stay so much that we wouldn't hesitate to book it again Thank you Kevin for making our vacation "One to Remember"!

Comfy, Clean, Homey, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfy, fully loaded home. We thoroughly enjoyed how conveniently located this duplex unit is to everything in Venice. The unit has everything and anything you could need or want for a vacation stay (we stayed two weeks). The house is meticulously clean and has a very homey feel about it.

We bicycled to and from the beaches and the Farmers Market, and enjoyed the fabulous Legacy Trail which took us from Venice into Sarasota. The Venetian Waterway Trail is also an absolute must-ride route. Snorkeling is right down the road at Caspersen Beach along with fantastic shelling and shark tooth hunting. Venice Beach (in town) has lifeguards on duty year round.

Kevin was wonderful to deal with from start to finish. We would not have asked for any more in a vacation rental. The price was right and the property suited our needs perfectly.

Great spot with all the amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing in Venice for decades and this place is perfectly located!! One block from the main drag "The Rialto", this house is 4 minutes from downtown, and less to Sharky's and the beach. The duplex has all the amenities (no dishwasher) plus plus! We didn't get to use the bikes because walking was just as easy but there are bikes and a full compliment of fishing gear. Spent time on the lanai and the back porch which were both well appointed. Awesome neighbors!! Absolutely recommend this property and would 100% rent this duplex again. Kevin was very good with communication and assured me over and over to contact 24/7. Never needed a thing as the place was great!!! Cheers!

Another Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th time staying in Venice, and probably our best. The location and decor of the duplex were as promised. Venice residents are very welcoming. Be prepared to be greeted by Hello's and waves as you travel about. Very biker and walker friendly. Also, a great list of dining to visit. You can drive anywhere on the Island of Venice in under ten minutes or leave the car at home and bike in under 15. Don't forget to bike the Venetian Waterway Park and pass the Intercoastal Waterway. We were fortunate to find this little gem due to an emergency cancellation. So search early!

We'll be back sooner this year. We're in the process of buying on the Island. Thank You for a great experience Kevin and Gayle....
