“Hidden Gem for the Price of a Hotel Room”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Spacious 2 bed and 2 bath apartment on Venice Ave (facing hotel, first/front apartment on the left) for the price of a normal hotel room. Everything you could think of was readily available. Location was spot on near beach, restaurants, parks, and grocery store. Kids loved the pool with plenty of toys to play with. How many places offer all of this as free amenities: Bikes, sand sifters for the beach, beach chairs, umbrella, gas grills, beach towels, coolers, books, puzzles and board games, laundry detergent, informative books and guides of the local area that go above and beyond the norm, sunscreen and more. Owners were constantly cleaning, maintaining and upgrading the grounds which it showed. We will be back and recommend this hidden gem to all.

I stayed in the efficiency unit at the Menendez St. location. It was perfect for what I needed -- sort of a "home base" to come back to after visiting friends all day (I used to live in Venice). This unit would be a bit tight for two people, but it is perfect for one. There are only two reasons I didn't give it 5 stars: (1) the window AC unit was a little loud (didn't keep me up at night, but it wasn't conducive to quiet moments of "downtime" and I turned it off when watching TV or making a phone call) and (2) it was hard to regulate the temperature of the small fridge -- my frozen stuff was either melting or my refrigerated stuff was freezing. Overall, though, I really enjoyed my stay here. The room was clean, the AC cooled well, the bed was comfy, and the staff was helpful and friendly when I had questions. It was nice having laundry facilities right there, and I loved being able to just take a bike and ride around the island. The Florida foliage surrounding the units is beautiful, and it was very quiet and private there. They also had a nice binder full of info about Venice and its sights. I even found out about some sights I didn't know about when I lived there! If you plan to cook a lot on your trip, you might want a larger unit with more counter space, but if you just plan to have breakfasts and the occasional lunch or dinner in your room, this unit is fine.

We stayed at the West Venice Ave location in September and found that the apatements were clean, comfortable and well equiped. The location is excellent for walking into Venice to either shop,dine or just for a drink. Although the property is not a 5* hotel it is well maintained with a very nice pool and BBQ area. We made use of the beach chairs etc which were free to use. We will definately use the Beach Villas again when we return to Venice. The only thing I would like to see in the rooms would be a safe, it was the only downside to our stay.

Room Tip: rooms on first floor have private outside sitting areas

Venice Beach Villas is excellent for a get away weekend. The rooms are "Old Florida" and very comfortable. The location is excellent. You can walk to the restored merchant area with pubs, shots and restaurants. The Beach is less than 1 mile and there are grocery stores close. The pool is very well maintained. We will visit again. Some local shops were closed as this is a very (snow bird) seasonal area.

Room Tip: Room # 10 is just off the pool. Some noise during the day, but very nice to sit by

This makes our 3rd year in a row to stay at the Villas and it was as awesome as before. We rented the largest unit, about the size of a large condo and it was as roomy & comfortable as I remember. The grounds & pool are kept very clean. This year, we really used the ample goodies to take with us to the beach – an umbrella and sand toys for the kids. The owners/managers are great friendly people. Can’t wait to come back next year!

This was our second visit to Venice Beach Villas for a weekend getaway. The first time we stayed in a one bedroom, livingroom and kitchen apartment; this time in their smallest available. It was just as comfortable and clean as the larger. We were surprised to find a small kitchenett with everything you could possibly need, including a home sized soap (not the little tiny hotel ones!) in the bathroom. It is so relaxing and quiet. It's the perfect place for a family reunion as well with grills, pool and privacy. We will definitely be returning. I don't want to leave out the fact that they have bicycles, pool floats, beach umbrellas and chairs and more, all for free to use. It really feels like your own beach house! The owners are very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Second location off premises is just a couple of blocks away from the main hotel (where the office i...
