South Venice Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8.

This is the perfect location in which to relax and provides the ideal contrast to Orlando. The property was built in 2000 on a half acre plot in a quiet area less than a mile from the beach at Manasota Key. It is located on Lemon Avenue which is a gravel road with no through traffic and provides a safe walk to the beach. The landscaped garden and flowering shrubs give the villa privacy, not overlooked by neighbouring properties. The villa is furnished as a home, not as a typical rental property, with many pictures, ornaments & floral features. Although set in a quiet and relaxing area the amenities of shops and restaurants are only a 5 minute drive away. The nearby town of Venice has a range of upmarket shops, restaurants, a theatre and many leisure and sporting activities. There are also a number of excellent golf courses within a short drive. The nearby motorway gives easy access to Orlando, Tampa, Naples and other parts of Florida.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have rented several properties in Florida but yours is far and away the best we have ever stayed in. It was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated throughout. The house was very well equipped, everything worked (not always the case with other houses we have rented), and the information provided was up to date and very useful. The pool was wonderful and again, very clean and well kept. We especially liked how secluded and private the house felt even though we were only minutes from local shops and restaurants. All round a perfect combination for a fantastic holiday. We are looking forward to returning in November and hopefully again in future years.

Even better than it looks on web.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here after a very hectic week in Orlando with our son and his wife and their two energetic kids aged 8&6. From the moment we arrived at the door of this secluded and private home I felt relaxed and at home, a feeling shared by the rest of the party. Everything one could want for a great beach holiday was to hand and the whole villa was very clean and comfortable. Although the feeling is one of privacy and seclusion you are only a two minute drive from the beach and about ten minutes from all the shops etc. and about the same to Venice Island. Just a word about the pool area, beautiful, large enough for all of us to enjoy and just the right size for Freya(8) to do her 50 laps before breakfast. The whole set in what seems like a semi-tropical forest. The only downside was that after this there is no way we could possibly go back to renting in Rotonda, in fact we are already looking at availability for 2016. Easy now David and Boo we'll leave the others at home next time.

Wonderful home near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful 4 bedroom home in a great neighborhood. The beach is 3 minutes away via car or a 10-12 minute walk. The owner has the home stocked with everything needed for a great stay. We love the privacy afforded at this house. The pool area is surrounded by folliage & the landscaping is just as depicted in the photos. Grocery shopping & restaurants are very nearby in Venice & Englewood. We are a big fan of Englewood area. It is very casual & not as popular or crowded with tourists as Sarasota or Naples. We already have next year's trip booked at this home so we are obviously very satisfied customers.

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for a vacation! The month we spent at this home was so relaxing. It is in a perfect location - very close to the beach- and is very private, spotless and well maintained.

It had a very well equipped kitchen and contained everything you would need and more from grills, pool toys, beach toys for the kids, books, movies.

It is the perfect "home away from home" and we would recommend it to anyone.

Our idea of Heaven......

  • 5 of 5

This is the best villa for location, quality of furnishing, size and cleanliness we have ever stayed in whilst in Florida. The pictures on the internet site do not do justice to this property which is set amist lush vegetation with not another villa in direct proximity. It is private and peaceful yet just minutes from excellent shopping and dining on US41. On our return and almost before unpacking our cases we had re-booked for this year. We are just counting down the weeks until we return! In addition to the locality of the shops and dining you have the most wonderful beaches within walking distance at Manasota or a short drive away at Englewood. If you can tear yourself away from these wonderful spots and could imagine your most perfect beach try Gasparilla Island which is just a 20 minute drive south down highway 41. The beaches and fishing here are truly amazing - we saw dolphins and manatees drifting close to the beach here. Then if you travel 10-15 minutes north you hit Venice which is an upscale shopping and dining area which is renowned for it famous sunsets from the pier. We preferred watching the sunset in Venice from the rocks where every evening we watched dolphins play whilst we fished for ladyfish. We turn 40 in a year or so and already we are thinking of a "special" holiday but we can think for nothing more special than 2 weeks in David & Boo's wonderful homely villa. Try it, you will not be disappointed I can assure you its gets 100% from us both. Enjoy, Cath & Andy

Manasota Beach is located in Sarasota County which abounds with beautiful beaches, golf courses and many wilderness areas rich in wildlife. Our home is located on Lemon Avenue which is gravel road leading to the beach at Manasota Key just across the Intercoastal Waterway, which divides the mainland from a string of island keys. The nearest town is Venice five miles away. However only three miles from the villa all your daily needs can be met at Venice Shopping Plaza which has a wide range of shops including major supermarkets such as WalMart and Publix, Home Depot and Target as well as many specialised outlets and family restaurants. The Interstate 75 motorway linking Tampa to the north with Naples and Miami to the south is only eight miles away.
