East Venice is off the Island yet close to everything. A short drive will put you in downtown Venice. Close to I75 makes airport runs a breeze. You will find many single family communities along with villa and condo complexes.
The British Open Pub is located in Jacaranda Commons shopping center. There is a Publix, Dog Groomer, Hair Salon and Nail Salon. The British Open is my favorite restaurant in this area. People friendly and dog friendly on the patio, great food, great staff and great beer. Check out the link below.
