Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Beautiful Venice Island, Heated 40’ Pool, Walk to Private beach.

Located in the prestigious and serene Golden Beach neighborhood, this

furnished 2-bedroom, 2-bath home offers the best of Venice in its own

secluded and beautifully landscaped setting. Furnished with touches of

classic Venice from the overstuffed living room furniture to the Tuscan stone

flooring. Sliding glass doors open the dining and living area and the master

suite to the enclosed pool deck. The plan of this home allows a nice flow

between the indoor and outdoor spaces. This home is the perfect retreat:

open, bright, airy, quiet and comfortable.

Enjoy the comforts of home with cable, DVD, flat screen T.V., stereo, central

air conditioning, and laundry facility. The pool, enclosed in a screened

Lanai, is 40 feet long (you can actually swim laps!) and is heated

electrically, the only way to ensure comfort during winter months. (Solar

heat simply doesn’t keep up.) Step outside the lanai and enjoy some of

Florida’s best grapefruit fresh off the tree. Pool and landscaping are

professionally maintained year round.

The Island of Venice is famous for being directly on the Gulf of Mexico and

not on an intercoastal waterway. This home is a 5 minute walk to its private

Gulf beach access complete with picnic tables, benches, beach chairs, outdoor

shower and grill. Step onto Golden Beach and experience the unobstructed

view to the horizon. The sunsets are spectacular. Stroll the wide sandy

beach as you walk to Sharky’s restaurant and the Venice Fishing Pier to

experience fine outdoor dining, live music, and to see what the local

fisherman are catching, or just sit and enjoy one of Florida’s nicest


Golden Beach is about one mile from Downtown Venice and its palm-tree lined

avenues. Stroll through antique shops and art galleries, bookstores and

seaside souvenir shops. Stop to dine at an outdoor café, or pick up a cup of

coffee or bottle of wine at one of the charming local shops. Just north of

Downtown Venice are the jetties where you can watch the pleasure boats come

and go or see the dolphins making their morning rounds.

Great home near the beach

  • 5 of 5
The spacious 2 bedroom and two bath home was what we were looking for in a vacation rental property. The House was immaculate with plush bathroom towels and a very comfortable king sized bed. The pool was crystal clear and large enough to swim laps. The screened-in pool and lanai area were perfect for mild, bug free summer evenings. In fact, we ate all of our meals out there. The quiet, peaceful beach is an easy three minute drive or ten minute walk (we stroll) from the house. The main business streets of Venice were a five minute drive from the house, featuring good restaurants and all your shopping needs. We especially enjoyed the following restaurants, providing excellent service and good meals: Cafe Venice, Made in Italy, The Crows Nest, and Cassariano. The owner's representative was only a few blocks away and was available should any need arise. We definitrely recommend this home. We enjoyed our two weeks there and will definitely return.

My wife and I stayed here for Xmas it was beautiful weather the house was very clean and is like home away from home.
The notes and info about the home functions were simple to follow and John was very helpful and accommodating on any questions we had.
The beach was a 5 minute walk and a 2 minute bike ride. The pool is big heated and relaxing and private we didn’t see a sole while we were there the property has lush tropical greenery that provide the ultimate privacy. From the home We could even hear the gulf of Mexico waves rolling onto the beach very pleasant surprise. This house was a great gem to find I hope others will enjoy staying there as well.
My parents live in Venice and it gets busy at their home when family is in so me and my wife will stay at flamingo and we will definitely be back again!!!!!!!

coming back to this home

  • 5 of 5
We've been to others but are coming back to this comfortable home again soon. Each bedrm has an adjacent bath, one with a lg tile shower & the other with a tub/shower combination. Closets & drawers are empty and available for our belongings. Both the dining area and the master have lg slide into the wall glass doors that open directly onto the screen enclosed patio & heated pool. This outdoor seating area is weather protected by the home. Much of our time with friends is spent here. We've rented homes without a washer/dryer and love that this time we could do our laundry at home. We enjoy varied cuisines at the many area restaurants, walk the beaches, take day trips and classes at the Venice Art Center. The quality of the beaches and parks from Sarasota through Siesta & Casey Keys, Venice, to Manesota Key are outstanding. It's really nice to walk rather than drive to the Venice Beach. We were amazed at how sparkling clean this home was for our arrival.

Activity and Interests

About Venice:

Downtown Venice and its environs are connected by a vast park system,

Venetian Waterway Park, which enables walkers to circle the entire island on

foot. Venice alone contains 27 parks. The most popular downtown park,

Centennial Park gazebo hosts free concerts weekly. Every Saturday Centennial

Park is the site of a farmers market selling local produce, flowers, along

with arts and crafts. On Venice Avenue is a free public recreation center

with basketball, tennis, shuffleboard courts, and children’s playground.

Historic downtown Venice is built entirely in the Renaissance-style of the

famous Italian city for which it was named. In 1920 city planner John Nolan

designed the downtown area to be walkable and accessible. It contains only

independently owned unique boutiques, restaurants and hotels. Live music

emanates from the gazebo and street performers entertain the strollers. Horse

and buggy tours of the city are available. The Venice Cultural Center offers

concerts, plays, and lectures at discount prices. The Venice Art Center,

recently restored and enlarged, displays rotating exhibits of local and out-

of-state artists as well as art classes for children and adults.

Venice has an assortment of unusual and charming restaurants and bars, as

well as a lively night life. Phat Cats jazz bar, Venice Avenue Wine and

Coffee Shop, old fashioned traditional Soda Fountain Shop, TJ Carney's, etc.

Originally a tiny fishing village, Venice has experienced immense growth in

the past 50 years. As more developers look to Venice, the Venice Area

Historical Society has become active in preserving the city’s unique look and

controlling growth. The society is integral in preventing overbuilding and

restricting condo construction. It’s most recent accomplishment is the

restoration of the old Venice train depot, the gateway to Venice through

which the Ringling Circus trains used to travel. Now the depot hosts tours

and contains small shops.

In a state of famous beaches, Venice Beach stands out for its vast white sand

beach, vibrant shells, and -- on account of the ancient shark ”burial ground”

off its shores -- shark tooth hunting. Venice Beach also has one of the last

full-length piers on Florida’s west coast, and adjacent Sharkey's Restaurant.

Water-sport abound - swimming, boogie-boarding, skim-boarding, surfing,

fishing... Jet skis, and all variety of boats are readily available for rent.

The Bay Lady is a local boat that offers guided tours of Venice’s waterways.

Excellent golf courses are everywhere.

Sarasota and its multiplicity of attractions and entertainment possibilities

is just a short ride away. In spring 2004 Sarasota was designated by Fortune

Magazine as one of five most appealing USA cities.

Some of the many cultural attractions in nearby Sarasota include The Ringling

Museum of Art, Ca d’Zan restored Venetian estate of John Ringling, Mote

Marine Laboratory Aquarium and Research Center, Selby Botanical Gardens with

its renown collection of orchids and epiphytes, Van Wezel Performing Arts

Center, Florida West Coast Symphony, Sarasota Opera, FSU Dance, Sarasota

Ballet, as well as multiple theaters and art galleries. Of special interest

for the kids in Sarasota are G Wiz Children’s Museum, Jungle Gardens, Spanish

Point Historical Site and Indian Burial Grounds, Pelican Man’s Bird

Sanctuary, Ringling Circus Museum, Planet Fun, Sarasota Car Museum, Pirate’s

Cove, Water Park, Mote Marine Wildlife and Nature boating expeditions, and

deep sea charter cruises.
