On a sunny island with a nearby beach, you'll sleep comfortably in the heart of Venice Island, FL. Just four blocks from the Gulf of Mexico, 606 Harbor Drive South House offers guests exclusive, deeded access to a private beach (rightly named 'Golden Beach').<br/><br/>Enjoy both sides of Florida life in Venice - the picture-postcard beach vacation with gorgeous sunsets and a warm sense of genuine community in the nearby town. Walk just eight blocks toward the charming town of Venice to find coffee shops, seafood restaurants and great window shopping. Both Venice Beach and the famous Venice landmark Sharky's on the Pier are both within walking or biking distance. <br/><br/>Enjoy ocean views while dining and take an after-dinner walk along the pier extending into the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, the house is just a five-minute drive to the white sands of beautiful Casey Key.<br/><br/>Though perfectly placed between beach and town, you can sit in this vacation home's private backyard and enjoy time utterly to yourself. Flowering trees and lush landscaping make it a welcoming haven, whether for reading a book or enjoying sea breezes on the covered patio. <br/> <br/><br/>The home recently changed ownership and many upgrades and renovations have been completed. The interior has been freshly painted and the cool terrazzo floors have been beautifully refinished. There are new furnishings, including new beds, mattresses, linens, flat-screen TVs, and lighting, throughout. A new dryer was installed in the convenient laundry area. The house has a clean, fresh, more modern feel and is now ready to be thoroughly enjoyed by our guests!<br/><br/>With two beds, 1 full bathroom and 1 extra utility room with toliet and sink, and a sleeper sofa that increases the available accommodation to sleep six guests, this house offers fantastic value. Harbor Drive South is one of a very few available Venice Island homes that can be rented for shorter stays (as short as 1 week). You can also rent Harbor Drive South for a month or more at discounted rates. Why not make it your winter base and invite family and other couples to join you in the sun?<br/><br/>While in and around the house, everyone is assured of great comfort and privacy. All of the new mattresses including the queen sized mattress in the designer brand pullout couch, are extremely comfortable. A large living room feels all the more so thanks to high ceilings, with cooling Terrazzo tile underfoot.<br/><br/>Guests with laptops will appreciate the convenience of high-speed Internet, and all will enjoy flat screen TVs with cable and HDTV. The second bedroom has an additional flat screen TV which adds convenience for families with children or couples vacationing together.<br/><br/>Return from an enjoyable golf game at one of Venice's many courses and enjoy an evening cocktail with loved ones. Walk together just a few minutes to the beach for the spectacular Gulf sunsets. From there - who knows? With such a fantastic location, you'll be able to live your vacation moment by moment. We are also located a 15 minute walk or quick car ride to Browhard Paw Park (the famous Venice Dog Park).
Additional amenities include: biking, boating, beach, fishing, washer / dryer.

What a great little home! My family and I enjoyed our stay at 606 Harbor Drive. A cozy, simple home that suited our needs and was perfectly located to the beach, grocery store, and restaurants. I would recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a little retreat in Venice, Florida.
A VERY PLEASURABLE & COMFORTABLE EXPERIENCE

Overall, it was great. The house had everything we needed, it was clean, the aC worked well, the kitchen allowed us to cook a few nights which we like to do and we were close to Venice aVE and to the beaches. Also, having the washer/dryer was so convenient. We only used it once but who wants to carry your stuff over to a Laundromat...

Excellent! The property is under new ownership, and in just a few months they have made great strides in renovating the property. Significant improvements have been made with renters in mind. The duplex has new floors, new furniture, newly painted walls, new doors, and is quite comfortable. The location is perfect. We met the owners, and they are great people... very eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They were landscaping, installing new appliances, and asking us for suggestions on improvemnts for next year during the week they were here. We stayed for a month, and it was the best vacation we've ever had. In addition, Kevin Connelly is the best property manager on the planet!

Had a wonderful experience! The online rental process was so easy and simple and really alleviated the anxiety of renting a property sight unseen. The staff was very professional and I received timely responses to all my inquiries regarding the process and the property. Also, the rental property was clean, well kept and perfect for our needs. Thank you!

Our stay in Venice
Left on 03/05/2012 for a stay in January 2012 | M Wesley S.
Venice is a lovely little town on the Gulf and our house was located near to the town center, the beach, and a lovely old park. Warm Mineral Springs, a spa with water at a year-round 87 degrees, is also about 9 miles away.
