“Almost excellent”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I would have rated it excellent except that it isn't particularly chic. It is just a great little apartment hotel in a fabulous location for a great price. Bed was comfortable, the bathroom a bit small, but the living room was nice and got a great cross breeze, so you didn't need to sleep with the air conditioning on. Nice porch area as well.

Room Tip: High room in the back.

Marvelous location. Very near beach & breathtaking sunsets! Well maintained & managed. Architecture of old Florida with modern updated units. Quiet and safe walk to downtown for fabulous dining at cafes and old fashioned gelato or kilwins fudge. Heated pool, beach bikes with trails close by, coolers, beach chairs, shark tooth strainers. All in one package. Booking more time this year.

We have stayed at Venice Beach Villas several times. The condo is clean and fully furnished. The pool is warm and the bikes are a favorite of ours. Its so close to downtown that while I swim, my kids can walk accross the street to play basketball or tennis. We walk to the beach and ride bikes to the Jetty for a hotdog from Anita's. At night we walk a block to get ice cream. This place feels like home and you barely need a car to get around due to its location.

Venice Beach Villas is what old Florida use to be like. This hotel is not the run of the mill, cookie cutter hotel of today. This hotel had the old KEY West Style. It was clean, cozy and the staff very friendly. Sue was especially helpful making sure we had everything we needed. The pool area was tropical and beautiful. The location was perfect also. Our trip to Venice was to find a home to buy and only one week to do it, so our free time was short lived. The location gave us the opportunity to walk to all the shops and restaurants with the little time that we had left. The location helped us to do that without spending time in the car driving to dinner and shops. Thank you Venice Villa's Staff for a wonderful, helpful, friendly and clean stay. We will recommend this hotel to our family and friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #3 but I am sure all the rooms are nice.

This year marked our 7th year return to Menendez. Quiet, clean, walkable, friendly, homey and we feel the unit is "ours". love this town, the restaurants, the theater, the owners of his establishment, the beautiful and free beach with nearby clean facilities and free ample parking. close to shopping, and best co all... This is old and special Florida. Only problem with this review is that more people to vie for our piece of heaven!!!

This was our first visit to Venice and the Venice Beach Villas and we were totally pleased with our stay. We chose the smallest, cheapest room since we were not sure what to expect. Our room was clean and inviting and was well worth the money. We took a look at the other room selections available for future visits and they are quite impressive and we will upgrade our next visit. The proprietor was friendly and helpful for our needs. It is a very quiet setting just a two block walk from the quaint downtown area and a half mile walk to the Gulf of Mexico. The heated pool was clean with a nice choice of lounging chairs. We took advantage of their library selections. They had free use of bikes that we could use to get around the area. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to this nice Florida town.

My husband and I stayed here for the third time and really like it. The location is terrific, walking distance to town and the beaches. It has a casual atmosphere and once you check in the owners let you be on your own. The one bedroom units have a nice kitchen/sitting area with a small bedroom with a queen size bed. The bathrooms are tiny, expected in an older type building. The heated pool is heavenly and the bikes, beach chairs and beach toys are appreciated. They provide a coin operated washer and dryer and having a box of laundry soap to help yourself to is a nice touch. Two grills and an eating area makes grilling outside an option. Fancy, no, casual, yes, fun and relaxing, definitely.
