About Doug Woodring
Our condo is a focal point of our family get-togethers. While not native to the area, we have been Floridians for 20 years and we love the beach!
Doug Woodring purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Doug Woodring chose Golden Beach
My wife and I fell in love with the quiet charm of Venice several years ago. We have been renters ourselves in the area and decided to take the plunge and fuel our passion for the beach, scuba, and shark tooth diving. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do. It's our favorite home away from home and we hope it will become yours.
What makes this Condo unique
Golden beach where Aldea Mar is located is the nicest private beach area on the island of Venice. The property gives you that secluded island/beach feel while being only minutes away to downtown and other amenities in the area.

Lovely condo in Great Venice, Florida location!
Although this was our first stay at Aldea Mar, we have been coming to Venice Island for many years!
We enjoyed quiet, friendly neighbors and a well maintained unit that was comfortable and fully equipped. A short walk to Golden Beach, pool and putting green. The owner was very friendly and attentive. We would recommend this beachfront community to friends and relatives.
Our guests are important to us and we strive to provide them with a worry-free stay. It was a pleasure to welcome new guests to our home!
ESCAPE TO VENICE
We rented this condo for the month of April..............WE LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT! We enjoyed it so much we will be back next year. After reading the other reviews there is not too much more to add. Venice is beautiful and our weather was great! The condo is in a perfect location as mentioned, close to anything you need or want. The fantastic beach is a short stroll from the door of the condo and the heated pool is great and soooo close as well. The condo is cute and comfy, everything you would need is there. We loved sitting on the lanai in the morning and the evening. The owners are very helpful, respond quickly to any questions and make you feel welcome. All we can say is we loved our getaway, could not have been better, a perfect 10!
It helps when you have wonderful guests like these folks!
An absolutely stunning property with caring owners and a fantastic oceanside location
We have stayed in this particular unit for three years in a row for a month each season and it suits our family needs perfectly. The 30 second stroll to the beach or the 5 minute bike ride downtown and the quick access to basically anywhere on the island of Venice make this location unbeatable. The bikes provided with the rental are a fantastic benefit along with the great fishing (equipment also provided) right off of the shore makes you never want to leave this wonderful setting.
The caring and thoughtful owners have provided absolutely everything you will require so that all you need to focus on bringing is your sunglasses, bathing suit, sunscreen and flip flops. The kitchen is very well equipped, the beds are clean and comfortable and the spotless meticulously kept unit is completely free of any noise other than perhaps the wonderful ocean breeze in the palms right outside. The Florida / Beach decor in the unit again reminds you continually that you are on vacation so that the hustle of the city, life pressures or work are not constantly on your mind. The provision of all of the detailed amenities makes a peaceful vacation very simple and extremely relaxing.
Throughout the years of vacationing here we have come to meet several other couples or families either renting or that own units and have really enjoyed the welcoming, pleasant and friendly atmosphere throughout all of Aldea Mar. The maintenance of the tropical grounds and beautifully heated pool is again only a 30 second walk from the door.
Through our many times coming to Venice and now our third year in this unit we have recommended and had friends stay here as well and we all share these similar positive views. We will continue to recommend this unit as each year the owners make small renovations / improvements that make a great vacation even better. Our family, for one, will continue to keep this unit on our number one priority list for all of our return visits to Venice, FLA in the future.
November at Aldea Mar
We rented this condo for the second time and had another excellent month. It is beautifully decorated and fully equipped/ Thanks to new blinds in the living/dining area it is full of light and is a pleasant space for relaxing both indoors and on the lanai. Many upgrades since last year have improved the feel of this spacious unit. Proximity to the beach is a real plus. The pool is excellent for swimming laps. The downtown area is a pleasant 20 minute walk. Aldea Mar is a friendly condo community and the owners of this unit are very accommodating, responsive and helpful. We will return next year.

Crossing one of Venice's bridges to the historic downtown area, known as 'The Island of Venice', instantly transports you to a place of unparalleled charm
where palm tree lined avenues host an endless array of exciting things to do and see. You’re sure to find a shop or boutique to satisfy your style out of the 100+ unique shops, salons, and other businesses along the Island Avenues of Venice. If dining is your idea of excitement, your palate will be especially pleased. With many sidewalk cafes and several picturesque waterfront restaurants, Venice offers a total dining experience that is truly second to none.
The town of Venice is known as the Sharks Tooth Capital. Venice Beach is located about half way down the left side (Gulf side) of the state’s peninsula and it has a coral reef just offshore.
Finding pre-historic shark’s teeth seems to be easy to do along this beach! Divers, snorkelers and beachcombers are all able to find various types of teeth that have been washed up from an exposed offshore fossil layer from 2 to 25 million years ago (Miocene). And if you become a shark tooth enthusiast, you’ll be eager to learn what type of tooth you have and which shark it came from. Collecting prehistoric sharks teeth has been a favorite pastime of visitors and residents of the Venice area for decades. They may be black, brown, or gray, depending on the minerals in the soil in which they have been buried. They range in size from one eighth inch to three inches, and on rare occasions more than 6 inches. The Megalodon ('Big Tooth') was an enormous shark – up to 60 feet long – now extinct, but his large teeth can range from tens to hundreds to thousands of $$$!
