Located 2 miles from the beach, one bedroom master suite with private full bath and vanity. The master suite has an adjacent enclosed air conditioned lanai, which is ideal for a quiet breakfast or relaxation. My home is close to Historic Venice Island. It is within comfortable driving distance to Sarasota, Englewood and Fort Myers. The theme is ever changing in this artist owned home. Driveway parking is available.

The space

The space is simple colorful and unique. The art is from local estate cleanouts and changes regularly. **There is a queen bed in the bedroom space and a Trundle bed in the adjacent linea, opening to a double. Both rooms are for your use, even though it lists as a suite.

Guest access

Guests have access to kitchen, dining, and living room space. I will provide coffee, tea, and snacks, upon arrival. If you are a smoker, please use the outdoor sitting area that is adjacent the lanai. Do not smoke in the home.

Interaction with guests

I will be on site to greet you, and show you around. Please let me know if you have any food or detergent allergies prior to arrival. Thanks so much.

Wow, that was a pleasant surprise! Val takes hosting seriously and has everything you'll need just like a fine hotel. She's created a lovely, clean and well appointed lodging which is close to beaches, shops and restaurants. The bedroom suite is quite large with a gigantic walk-in closet to keep your stuff and an air conditioned private lanai. Relaxing, private, quiet, clean and quite comfortable. A wonderful place to stay. A wonderful hostess!

Valerie was very accommodating and helpful with restaurant suggestions, how to get everywhere and things to do. You do have to drive a little ways to the beach and downtown but it’s not too far. I would stay here again!

We had planned on staying with a Valerie the week before moving into our new home in Venice...right when hurricane Irma hit. She was completely prepared with water, candles, batteries, flashlights and was so helpful in the midst of a week without power! She was an awesome host and I highly recommend her & her lovely place to everyone visiting Venice!!

Had a great stay at Valeries' Artsy Abode and would book again if I'm in the area! She is an excellent host, so fun to talk with, and provides all the little extra amenities her guests could want. Loved the unique arsty house and the room is quite spacious too. Very easy and a great value!

Valerie was very communicative leading up to our stay, and she made sure that we had everything we needed, and more, during our time at her home. Her place was styled creatively and was very comfortable. We had privacy, yet our host was available if we needed. Val was thoughtful and generous and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was the very best. Thanks so much!!

WOW what a treat to stay with Valerie. Arrived later than planned, which was no problem at all, as my host welcomed me with open arms and heart = ) The home is eclectically decorated, is spacious and clean with everything you'd want or need. The private bed/bath room space is much bigger than snaps show, is extremely quiet and quite cozy. The home is centrally located in a nice working class neighborhood on the south side of Venice with off-street parking. Very easy access to nearly anything you'd possibly desire. Depending on where you trip off to, north or south, ALL beach communities are verrrrry easy to get to. If you are a beach/ocean lover, the beaches all over this area are super beautiful with free parking just about everywhere. Prior to coming here, had no idea that is area is well known as being one of THE hottest spots to find fossilized sharks teeth on earth ... talk about becoming obsessed with the hunt, my goodness ... add in the weekly drum circles on Nokomis Beach and Siesta Key and this was truly a lovely-sublime-paradisaical experience from A to Z and hope to return again soon. With nothing but love, thank YOU Valerie for offering your wonderful space to this blissed out solo adventurer.
