Venetian Isles is an upscale Deed Restricted waterfront community in St Petersburg, consisting of 533 home sites. With its deep water canals, the area is great for power or sail boats of almost any size. Venetian Isles is made up of man-made islands in Tampa Bay and reached by bridges, via Overlook Drive, Grand Canal Boulevard and Mermaid Point.
Because of its man-made, the elevation is 5-7 ft. above the natural shoreline. This has enabled the neighborhood to be less prone to flooding and help home-owners with insurance costs.
In 2013, Tampa Bay Rays star Evan Longoria purchased a home.
