= marks the location of this home
We are located on Venice Island and steps to the beach and town. Venice Island is a beautifully planned community along the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway with Italianate architecture. Definitely outdoor living with miles of accessible uncrowded sandy beaches with plentiful shells and fossilized sharks teeth for gathering. There are many excellent outdoor cafes and restaurants, wonderful shopping, numerous parks and bike trails with one along the Intercoastal Waterway, and grand old Banyon trees lining the roadways. Every morning community yoga is offered on the beach. Sailing, charter fishing, paragliding, wind surfing, golfing, kayaking, and diving are all available. Watch fabulous sunsets while sipping your favorite wine.
Something about ourselves
We are a retired professional couple that enjoy traveling, especially in Europe. From May through October/November we live on the beautiful Oregon coast. Recently we have been enjoying winter months in Venice, Florida. We feel we have the best of both worlds. We still wish to travel to Europe in the Spring and/or Fall. We are very low key, and we will treat your home as our own.
