About Craig McCullough


We ave owned and rented this property since 1992 and live in an adjacent historic home. We rent only during our "tourist season" because we like to travel off season and want to be available to our renters for help with any problems.

Craig McCullough purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Craig McCullough chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This property is small and charming. The setting is secluded, centrally located, and only a 5 minute walk from the beach.

Venice has something for everyone! Culturally, we have easy access to the Venice Art Center with shows and classes, along with the Venice Theater with 2 stages of local productions every week. Local live music is plentiful, with weekly bluegrass at the Beach Pavillion, great monthly shows at Myakka State Park, live music at Centennial Park, and nightly live performances at local restaurants.

Venice boasts a large variety of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. We are a city of parks, with pocket parks throughout town, as well as large expanses to roam free like the 24,000 acre Carlton Reserve or the smaller Deer Prarie Creek and Sleeping Turtle reserves. Fishing is good at the Venice Jetty, Venice Fishing Pier, or just surf casting at the beach. For the offshore fisherman, local charters are easy accessible. There is a community of surfers, kite surfers and road bikers waiting for the right conditions. Walk the beach from the Jetty to Manasota key…you can go all day.

In easy driving distance, Sarasota offers the Selby Gardens, Mote Marine Laboratory, Asolo Theater, and Van Wezel Theater.

Don’t miss this opportunity for a great rental in a great town!

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $500
Tax Rate 12.0%

This is a very energy efficient unit, but energy and water conservation are encouraged. There is a $100 allowance for each for each month. Use in excess of this allowance will be deducted from the security deposit. This policy is really designed to keep renters from running the heat or air conditioning with the windows open. Who would do that?

Washer and dryer are located in an adjacent garage. On the plus side, it doesn't take away from floor space in the cottage. On the minus side, it is a garage...

In our years of renting this unit, we have never had to withhold return of a security deposit.

February monthly rate prorated to 28 days...$3173.

This season, 2015-2016, the beds, refrigerator,stove, great room couch, and dining set are all new.
