Venice Florida has miles of white sandy beaches, but not as many beachfront neighborhoods as you may expect; this has to do with careful planning that aims to maintain residential density as low as possible. Gulf Shores is one of those few Venice beachfront neighborhoods; this is a mid-rise condominium tower located on the west side of The Esplanade North, which means that it is right on the sand.
The 255 Esplanade address of Gulf Shores is one of the most coveted in Venice. Local residents know that residents of this 10-story condo tower enjoy two exclusive paths to access the beach. The building looks great because it has undergone remodeling in recent years. The carports have been revamped; the exterior has been repainted with a pastel colors similar to what you would see in Miami Beach; the clubhouse has been remodeled, and the windows have been upgraded to withstand gale-force winds.
A typical unit at Gulf Shores offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms, an additional dining spot that can be converted into a home office or den, and a balcony providing dramatic views of the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Living space ranges between 1,280 and 1,340 square feet. Ownership includes the right to rent units up to four times a year for a minimum of three months; these beachfront units are the kind of properties that wealthier vacationers tend to look for as vacation rentals.
Amenities in this condominium include a heated swimming pool, a clubhouse, and an outdoor garden lounge area. The main attraction are the two private beach access areas, which are just a few steps from the building and lead you right onto the white sands of Venice Beach. From here, you can walk a few minutes north to the legendary Sharky’s On the Pier restaurant, and you can also fish right from the pier without having to get a license.
Gulf Shores is located within walking distance of the main shopping, dining, and entertainment district of Venice. The closest grocery store is Papa’s Meat Market, which offers gourmet products, and the Publix supermarket at Venice Shopping Center, which is just a few blocks away.
