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!

Just what we expected, no surprises. It was a perfect unit for the two of us.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was older, but updated and decorated nicely. Just steps from the pool & about a 100 yard walk down a sidewalk to a very beautiful beach. The beach area was not crowded at all, just a few other residents anytime we were there. A very quiet and easy going area made for one of the most relaxing vacations I’ve ever had. My gal & I were very pleased with the accommodations, location & ease in dealing with the owner. I would highly recommend this property for a couple looking for a week just enjoying the sun & beach.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our apt. was small(as expected) and nicely decorated. There was a comfortable chair next to the comfortable bed and good lighting for reading above both. The people living around us were very friendly. We used the pool often and did our laundry on site.

The only thing we had a hard time with was the smell of a closed up apt. each time we returned from a day out. Opening the window and door took care of it, but it would have been nice not to have to deal with it.

We loved walking to the beach and watching the clouds roll over the moon each evening. We visited other local public beaches and found plenty of good food every where we went. Historic Venice is a nice afternoon walk with plenty of ice cream options.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the overall nice review. Just adding a note for future guests. The unit is a kitchenette and having a kitchen, bath and bed in a hotel size room while optimal for vacations comes also at the cost of slightly less air circulation. I recommend running the fan and/or the A/C in its fan mode while away and I also do not encourage guests from frying etc. as well as keeping to many wet towels etc. inside. The drier the unit is kept the fresher the air will be. Especially in hot days humidity can easily build up in (any) Florida home.

Perfect for our stay in Venice.

  • 4 of 5

The room was small, but provided us just what we needed. We were spending our days with our daughter, son in law and grand children. We slept and had our breakfast in our room. We were very convenient to the beach and downtown Venice. It was very quiet, clean and had the kitchen amenities that we needed. Worked out perfectly for us!
