About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8.

This is the perfect location in which to relax and provides the ideal contrast to Orlando. The property was built in 2000 on a half acre plot in a quiet area less than a mile from the beach at Manasota Key. It is located on Lemon Avenue which is a gravel road with no through traffic and provides a safe walk to the beach. The landscaped garden and flowering shrubs give the villa privacy, not overlooked by neighbouring properties. The villa is furnished as a home, not as a typical rental property, with many pictures, ornaments & floral features. Although set in a quiet and relaxing area the amenities of shops and restaurants are only a 5 minute drive away. The nearby town of Venice has a range of upmarket shops, restaurants, a theatre and many leisure and sporting activities. There are also a number of excellent golf courses within a short drive. The nearby motorway gives easy access to Orlando, Tampa, Naples and other parts of Florida.

A beautiful home in an ideal location a short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well equipped and furnished home set in a quiet residential area but easily accessible from the Interstate motorway. It is less than a mile to a lovely beach but only a short drive to a wide range of shops and restaurants. An ideal property in which to enjoy a relaxing vacation.

Lovely Venice/Manasota Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were quite happy with the whole experience from beginning to end. The process was easy and the house was beautiful. It was a very private property. The Master En-suite was amazing! It was warm and inviting. We were able to ride bikes from the house to our parents house a mile away and to the Manasota Beach, also just 1 mile away. The description was right on target and clean. We love that area! I have been going to Venice for many years but never to this area, which is a shame because the surrounding area is quite beautiful. David was wonderful to work with through out the process, we would definately use Home-Away again and we're hoping to come back again very soon!

Newport Wales

Even better than it looks on web.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here after a very hectic week in Orlando with our son and his wife and their two energetic kids aged 8&6. From the moment we arrived at the door of this secluded and private home I felt relaxed and at home, a feeling shared by the rest of the party. Everything one could want for a great beach holiday was to hand and the whole villa was very clean and comfortable. Although the feeling is one of privacy and seclusion you are only a two minute drive from the beach and about ten minutes from all the shops etc. and about the same to Venice Island. Just a word about the pool area, beautiful, large enough for all of us to enjoy and just the right size for Freya(8) to do her 50 laps before breakfast. The whole set in what seems like a semi-tropical forest. The only downside was that after this there is no way we could possibly go back to renting in Rotonda, in fact we are already looking at availability for 2016. Easy now David and Boo we'll leave the others at home next time.

Wonderful home near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful 4 bedroom home in a great neighborhood. The beach is 3 minutes away via car or a 10-12 minute walk. The owner has the home stocked with everything needed for a great stay. We love the privacy afforded at this house. The pool area is surrounded by folliage & the landscaping is just as depicted in the photos. Grocery shopping & restaurants are very nearby in Venice & Englewood. We are a big fan of Englewood area. It is very casual & not as popular or crowded with tourists as Sarasota or Naples. We already have next year's trip booked at this home so we are obviously very satisfied customers.
