Interaction with guests
My bride and I are both retired, I was an engineering teacher and my wife a software analyst. Until our recent marriage, the villa was my dream retirement home. We now live in what was my wife's home a little more than a mile from the villa and are available to assist our tenants virtually 24 hours a day. We will personally meet you when you arrive and will always be available to answer any questions or concerns.

About the neighbourhood
Bird Bay Village is a waterfront (located on Roberts Bay) golf resort community within the City of Venice. Venice is known as 'The City on the Gulf' because it's one of the few, if not only Florida city, directly on the ocean without a barrier island. Even though it's only 10 to 15 miles south of Sarasota, Venice has it's own professional symphony, live theater, weekly farmer's market, art galleries, periodic festivals and arts and crafts shows. That said, however, the primary attractions by far are Venice's quaint historic downtown area and fantastic sunny beaches.
Getting around
Venice has been nationally designated a 'Bicycle Friendly City'. Depending on your personal abilities, cycling and walking throughout Bird Bay and into Venice's downtown area are very doable. Two shopping centers, with supermarkets and restaurants, and all activity areas within Bird Bay Village as well as county bus stops are an easy walk from the villa. A car might be unnecessary but recommended to appreciate all the area attractions.
