Make no mistake, there are plenty of rental opportunities in the Venice area. Unless you are in Lake of the Woods or Lakes of Jacaranda it will be difficult to find your square footage with a pool.
For an annual rental, right now in Venice "East" proper you are looking at $800 to $1,400 per month...there are however, always exceptions. A seasonal rental for Dec. thru April will jump to $1,800 to $2,400 per month. A rental on the golf course would bring a little more.
Our recommendation is to consider expanding your location to include Chestnut Creek, Jacaranda West, Venice Gardens, Woodmere Lakes, etc. etc.
