About the property

Studio, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

***Please check calendar for available dates***

***Feel free to contact me for rates and specials****

Venice Villas is a two-story condo complex with several

efficiencies/studios. It consists of

studios either in the front or back side of the building. My unit

faces directly the beach and is on the ground floor. The units door opens

directly to the beach entrance with unblocked views and is just steps away from the beach/sea. I included a photo with the view from the unit. The Gazebo is where the beach starts. Approx. 1 min. walk to reach the sea.

I purchased this studio/efficiency for my own weekend enjoyment as I

live in Tampa. It is approx. 75 minutes from Tampa Int'l Aiport and accomodates ideally two people. The living and bedroom area

in the same room just like a comfortable and nicely decorated decent

size room.

I included a scan of the recommendation letter. It reads " Dear

Selcuk, I want to thank you again for the rent of unit #47 Venice Villa March to

March 2008. The unit was very clean and the neighbours were very friendly people. Location, ocation, location, the pool was 20' from my front door and was cleaned every day, and the ocean and beach at the end of the street was

also very relaxinb. I would definitely stay there again, we had a

wonderful time... Sincerely... R. G."

Another recommendation from an e-mail from renter in Feb. 2009 reads as follows:

"Dear Selcuk,

We had a great time in your little studio. We are very satisfied with everything and we appreciate that you have chosen furniture from the Swedish company IKEA ,that make us feel like home. We likeed Venice very mutch, a small town where we could find waht we needed especially the Carnies Pub where we was several times and enjojed the musik and the atmosfaire. Also the golf course Lake Venice was a good experience with frindly people and a nice course. Now we are back in Sweden where it is still cold and little sun but we hope that the spring will appear soon. Have a nice time" Bo D. (From Sweden).

The location of the studio is midway between the fishing pier and

downtown - both around 15 - 20 minute walks away.

For those who are familiar with Venice - my favorite is strolling in

downtown Venice or walking on the beach 20 minutes to Sharky's (A beach side restaurant), watch the sunset with a margarita and walk


What do other's do? They search for historic shark teeth, sun bathe,

swim or fish - right from the beach.

Venice is a short drive from Sarasota - another similarly affluent

city with well developed arts scene, the Ringling Museum, Jungle Gardens and a variety of fine dining options... A quick online search can provide more details.

For those travelling overseas - Orlando (2 hrs), Naples (1 hr), Miami

(3 hr) are all great day trip options... St. Petersburg and Tampa can be reached within less than 90 minutes.

For shoppers, in addition to local Venice boutiques, Ellenton Factory

Outlet is also a short drive away (approx. 20 min.)

This is ultimately a "beach" place for those seeking serenity and

enjoy Florida activities from fishing to fine dining...

And a letter from a renter reads: "I would like to say we had a wonderful time. The accomodation worked out great for two of us. The weather was perfect and the location was great for day trips. The residents at the villas were very friendly and helpful with all types of useful information (dining, shopping, places to visit etc.) The city of Venice is a lovely place. We were sad when it came time to leave. We will definitely return. Thanks again for being so accomodating." Tammy M.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to rent your condo last week ~ we had a wonderful vacation. What a cute and cozy place! Everything about your condo was so nice... very clean, so convenient to the beach and the town of Venice and the beachy decor is just so fun and inviting. We enjoyed time at the beach, at the pool and getting to know Venice. What a great week. Again...Thank You!

Review #11827158 "Deposit refunded promptly "

I was planning on renting the unit for the month of January, 2016. Unfortunately, for personal reasons, I had to cancel. I had already sent Selcuk my deposit to hold the unit for me. When I emailed and explained to him that I had to cancel my reservation, he was very understanding and promptly put a check in the mail to me for the full deposit I had sent him. I am planning on reserving his place for the following year and very much appreciated his understanding!!!

Very cute studio

  • 5 of 5

We did hit a rainy cloudy week while staying here but the colorful studio helped us feel brighter. I was really surprised by the amount of storage space. The armoir held all of our clothes for the week, and believe me I bring a lot. There was a cubby behind the bathroom door with 3 shelves for toiletries. We were very lucky because we got the internet connection in our room where other units had to go sit by the pool. We were by the pool which is right outside of this unit and the beach a short walk down the driveway, with two cute gazebos to sit and watch the sunset.

cute & clean

  • 5 of 5

Great little efficiency apartment for a lovely week near the beach. We loved the large pool that was right outside the door and the quiet neighborhood with little traffic. The colorful decor &'ikea' furnishings gave it a fresh look. We could have done without the hanging shells over the front door, but it did give a beach feel to the apt!

Owner is fair

  • 5 of 5

I can only speak to how I was treated by the owner.

Unfortunately I had an incident that caused me to cancel my reservation.

Seluck was both understanding and more than fair. My pre-paid rent fee was returned in full.

Because of this I think it's fair to assume the unit is exactly as advertised.
