“excellent retreat in venice, fl”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We have already spent a few days in different years in this little comfy place, with its large heated swimming pool and nice and well furnished apartments , and we keep on coming back every time we can. Well worth the stay! Shops, restaurant, post office and beach are at walking distance and Venice is a relaxed place to stay, one of my favourite in the whole of florida

Clean, friendly ( offers bikes, beach chairs and other beach gear), efficient, reasonably priced, located close to the beach and downtown, nice pool with always fresh towels. The manager/host/maid Sue is a treasure at the Menendez Street location.
We will be ba-a-ack!

Just returned home after a week at the Venice Beach Villas. Home away from home! This was my third time staying here, each time in a different villa ranging from a Studio to a two bedroom. The units are consistently clean and well organized with all the basics needed in the kitchen, including a dishwasher! A two block walk to the fabulous Venice Beach and a one block walk from "downtown Venice". The street is lined with beautiful palms and was decorated for Christmas making our walks even more enchanting than usual. Our villa was adjacent to the pool yet was quiet and very private. Weber grills and bicycles were available for our use and all the beach items you could need. The owners of this establishment are often on site and tend to every detail. We look forward to returning again. Would definitely recommend this place. Very safe area of Florida for those who like evening walks. Close to shopping center and also miles of natural undeveloped Caspersen Beach. We spent many enjoyable hours at the nearby Jetty, watched sunsets at the Nokomis drum circle, and loved the evening bluegrass musicians at Venice Beach. (every night a different genre musicians under the shelter!)

Room Tip: I loved staying at the 2 bedroom at the Menendez location last year and Unit #10 Venice Ave this tim...

This accommodation pressed all the buttons for us. The best by far of the 8 hotels we stayed in in our Florida vacation.

Location - 5 mins walk to a good beach with plenty more good beaches easy to reach, all uncrowded with free parking, free seating, showers, clean bathrooms and a relaxed vibe. 5 minutes walk in the other direction takes you to quaint shops and eateries.

Accommodation - nice big bed, very well equipped kitchen, big fridge-freezer, two big TVs, shower/bath with hot water ad infinitum and our own table and chairs on the terrace outside. We slept soundly and sweetly.

Pool - a very clean pool heated to a wonderfully comfortable temperature - like velvet on the skin. Big enough for swimming some serious lengths.

Facilities - free use of bikes (in a town with cycle paths and a riverside trail), a laundry room, fresh pool towels, kids toys for beach and pool.

Service - warm, helpful service. Checking to see if we needed anything. Relaxed and friendly greetings.

Our 3 nights flew by and we were sad to move on - what a great place.

My fiancé and I stayed at the Menendez location on two separate occasions. The small business feel makes Venice Beach Villas stand out. I love the fact that the owners are readily available for question and local knowledge of Venice. Venice is our favorite place to visit in Florida, and the Villas captures that small town feel we love. From the time that you arrive at your room, you feel welcomed and comfortable. The rooms are nicely laid out and have all of the necessary amenities. We look forward to making Venice Beach Villas an annual stop for a relaxing vacation.

Last October until mid November this year, we went to the hotel "Venice Beach Villas" for the first time. From the beginning, we were very impressed because of the familiar aspect of its architecture and the charming reception of Ms. Lori (the owner). The first image of our studio that we booked from Germany was positive. It had everything you need to feel comfortable: it was clean and nicely furnished. However, the location was a little bit away from the main Venice Ave. Therefore, we asked for a change that Lori managed to our satisfaction. We got a similar comfortable bungalow at the main hotel complex, but with separated bedroom, bathroom and a living room with a kitchenette. Anything that you needed was there: a small TV in the bedroom with a fan, a big TV in the living room with a modern air conditioning unit (1-Fahr. step), Wi-Fi, a microwave with oven, electric cookers, a big refrigerator, a coffee maker and a dishwasher. Not forget to mention that there was a complete service of cutlery, dishes, cups, glasses and pots. The beach was about 0.375 miles west and the city of Venice only one block to the east. There were also chairs and towels for the beach and bikes without extra cost. Our original intention was to stay 8 days, but after two days of a beautiful weather (87 Fahr.), a nice beach with warm seawater (78 Fahr.), where we enjoyed swimming, we extended our stay for 10 days more. We will return to the Venice Beach Villas in the following years where we experienced the most relaxing and delightful holidays we never had in many years before. Now that we are familiar with this nice hotel, we will probably book a bungalow in the Menendez Street, since at our arrival we did not appreciate the quietness of this second hotel complex at first. We like to thank Sue and Kevin for their friendly help in many inquiries and their constant support.

Room Tip: It is a matter of choice because all bungalows are well furnished, well equipped and sunny. If someb...

We stayed in a 2BR on Venice Avenue. It's quite large and was very clean. It has a full sized kitchen and we used it!!! They have bikes available to tool around the City, but frankly, it's located just a couple blocks away from most of the restaurants and shopping - well within walking distance. There is a Publix roughly a mile away for groceries. The beach is just down the street.
