About GVE

About our Community Gulf View Estate

Gulf View Estates is a Deed Restricted community of 370 single family homes located in Sarasota County at the southern end of the City of Venice, Florida.

We have easy access to Sarasota County’s world famous beaches including Siesta Beach and Venice Beach as well as over a dozen city, county and state park beaches, each with a unique character and each fronting on the warm and typically calm Gulf of Mexico. From Manasota Beach which is a 3 minute drive from our entrance, you can walk 15 miles of beaches making the area a prime destination for retirees, vacationers, and beach loving year round residents.

30 minutes to our north is the city of Sarasota, often called the “Cultural Capital” of the State of Florida. Immediately to our south is the unincorporated area known as Englewood, a beach community that preserves the best of Old Florida. And for those looking for an occasional visit to the “big city”, Tampa is 80 miles to our North and Ft. Myers is 70 miles to our south.

About Venice

Venice is known for its friendly, small-town feel, its quaint shopping center of low-rise buildings that are primarily in a Mediterranean style, and its lovely boulevard shaded by giant live oaks that extends from downtown to the beckoning beach. The beach, starting at the northern edge of the city where the Venice jetties open a passage from the Intracoastal Waterway to the Gulf of Mexico, extends for 4 miles. Much of it is undeveloped and merges into Sarasota County’s Caspersen Beach Park.  Prehistoric sharks’ teeth (there is no problem with sharks) are found on the beaches at Venice and Caspersen. Venice has been called the “Shark’s Tooth Capital of the World.”
