Relocate to South Venice

Situated adjacent to Venice Island, the town's primary hub and historic center, South Venice enjoys a unique geographical setting. Technically classified as an island due to the presence of the Intracoastal Waterway, which connects various bays and water passages, South Venice is found to the south of Venice Island, with Highway 41 (the Tamiami Trail) and the Gulf of Mexico to its east. It is separated from the Gulf of Mexico by the Intracoastal Waterway. This prime location is highly sought after, as it lies "west of the trail" and borders the Gulf's waterways. Being just south of Venice Island, South Venice provides an affordable residential option while remaining a mere stone's throw away from the bustling downtown Venice area.

About the South Venice Neighborhood

Discover the fantastic reasons that make South Venice, Florida, your next ideal destination for a lively and engaging lifestyle. Nestled along the stunning Gulf Coast, just a stone's throw away from the historic charm of Venice and the beautiful Venice Island, this neighborhood has so much to offer. Let's dive into the perks that make South Venice a perfect place to call home – it might not be Wellen Park, but it has its own unique charm!

South Venice Civic Association

Back in the swinging 1950s, South Venice residents came together to form the South Venice Civic Association. Their mission? To build a sense of community, host exciting events, and discuss important local issues. They even rolled up their sleeves to create a community hall, which still stands proudly on Alligator Drive, hosting various events and providing meeting spaces. Talk about a hub for neighborhood camaraderie!South Venice Homes for Sale

  • Community Boat Ramp & Kayak / Canoe Launch: For the water enthusiasts among us, South Venice is a waterway wonderland. Nestled alongside the Intracoastal Waterway, residents have exclusive access to a convenient boat ramp. Launch your vessel with ease and park your ride, all for a reasonable annual fee. Plus, there's a kayak and canoe launch just around the corner – perfect for those serene waterway adventures. So, if you're a boating aficionado, this is like hitting the jackpot!
  • Legacy Trail Access Via Walking & Biking Trails: South Venice has some epic walking and biking paths at Shamrock Park that hug the Intracoastal Waterway. These paths connect to the larger Venetian Waterway, which, in turn, links up to the famous Legacy Trail. With over 20 miles of paved trails that stretch from Venice north into Sarasota, it's a dream come true for walkers and bikers. No need to tackle those busy highways – just hop on your bike and enjoy the scenic route right from your doorstep.
  • Shamrock Park & Nature Center:  Shamrock Park, nestled alongside the Intracoastal Waterway, is the largest park in the area and offers endless outdoor adventures. It's also one of the best free attractions in Venice, Florida. This park is home to some of the last remaining "scrub" habitat in Sarasota County, making it a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Keep your eyes peeled for the Florida Scrub Jay, Gopher Tortoises, and an array of stunning wildlife. With over a mile of pristine paved trails for walking and biking, you can explore the beautiful scrubland or enjoy serene walks along the Intracoastal Waterway, perfect for fishing, boating and bird-watching. The park also boasts sports courts for tennis and basketball, a playground for the kids, and a delightful butterfly and nature garden, complete with nameplates to help you identify native plants. And don't forget to stop by the Shamrock Nature Center to learn more about the area's natural wonders and attend enlightening nature seminars.
  • The South Venice Beach Ferry: South Venice once enjoyed beach access through charming footbridges courtesy of the developers. However, when the Intracoastal Waterway was carved out by the US Army Corps of Engineers, those picturesque footbridges had to bid adieu, leaving residents high and dry, figuratively speaking, without their cherished beach access! Luckily, the indignant residents of yesteryears rallied together and compelled the Corps to set aside a whopping $150,000. This generous allocation paved the way for the creation of a sturdy dock and a trusty ferry system, ensuring that South Venice residents could once again savor the sun, surf, and sand with ease. Ahoy, beachgoers!
  • South Venice Beach:  One of the fantastic perks of having the South Venice Beach Ferry at your disposal is the effortless access it provides to a pristine and somewhat secluded beach. While it's not technically a private beach, it's nestled about 4 miles south of Caspersen Beach – and getting there involves a rather lengthy trek or a boat ride. The ferry itself is exclusive and only accessible to those who hold a pass, giving it a touch of that private beach vibe as access is restricted to the general public.

    This unique feature means that even during the bustling peak season when other nearby public beaches are bustling with activity and parking is at a premium, South Venice Beach remains a serene and hassle-free oasis. No need to worry about parking dilemmas or lugging your beach gear for miles here!

South Venice Homes for Sale

Development in South Venice started in the 1950s and continued into the 1970s and 1980s. As a result, the majority of homes here are traditional ranch-style houses with older floorplans. Nevertheless, ongoing construction means you can also find homes built as recently as the 2000s, although they are fewer in number. Additionally, there are empty lots available, providing opportunities for new construction homes or custom builds.

Home Styles: Updated vs. Original

Many South Venice homes have been updated, but some retain their original 1960s features. Updated homes save you from renovation work, though quality may vary. Original homes offer a canvas for personalization, letting you modernize and tailor to your preferences. Expect to find homes with converted garages, added rooms, and enclosed lanais.

The majority of South Venice homes are not connected to public water and sewer systems. Instead, they rely on well water and septic systems. This setup can reduce monthly bills but may require maintenance, such as well pump replacements and septic system care. Older homes often need septic systems or drain field replacements.

South Venice Rental Opportunities

South Venice is a popular area for rentals due to its affordability, location, and amenities. Long-term, seasonal, and short-term rentals are available, with well-maintained homes, especially those with pools or hot tubs, fetching attractive rental rates. Keep in mind that Sarasota County enforces a 30-day minimum rental requirement.

So, get ready to embark on your South Venice adventure, where the neighborhood is buzzing with activity, nature is your playground, and the community spirit is alive and thriving!
