This 980 sq. ft. unit is a two bedroom, one bath with a den/office/fireplace with a spectacular view of Tampa Bay from your private balcony. Elegantly furnished with upscale "Tommy Bahama" style furniture, linens, and cooking utensils. Located in the beautiful, gated, waterfront complex of the Grand Venezia. The unit features granite countertops, tile flooring, inside laundry, crown molding, trey ceiling, and large walk-in closet.
The master bedroom is large with a king size bed as well as a large flat screen tv. The second bedroom has two twin beds. Both bedrooms have terrific views facing the water. My family and I also use this as our vacation/retirement home so we were very selective. The condos in the Grand Venezia are beautiful Mediterranean style villas, and only three stories high so it doesn't have that "highrise" look. It is peaceful, and relaxing just being there. Some of the wildlife that we have be seen on walks, or from the balcony are manatees, dolphins, and pink flamingos.
Only 10 miles from Tampa International airport makes this an easy drive. Close to many restaurants, small shops, large stores, malls, cinemas, and all the amenities of a big city while still secluded within the Mediterranean paradise of a gated community near the Gulf of Mexico.
We enjoyed our stay and found the condo very comfy. The views from the balcony were wonderful and the kids enjoyed watching the fish jump out of the water. We had a great time and hopefully we will return in the near future!
