Stoneybrook in Venice is a community with single family homes. Here is their web site: http://lennarstoneybrook.com/ This is a 900 home gated community with many amenities.
This area also has townhomes in the same neighborhood called Stoneywood Cove. Located on River Road with easy access to I-75. It is a Lennar townhomes community of 106 two and three story townhomes near the Myakka River, next to Stoneybrook. It features lush landscaping and is surrounded by thick preserves. There are sidewalks, a cabana, and a pool.
There may be rentals in both of these communities. I am not sure exactly what you are looking for based on your post.
