  • LTB LMB Cincy, OH

    "When we started looking for a place on AMI, I went through the VRBO site numerous times. I just kept going back to Shady Palms and when I talked to Cindy, I definitely made my mind up. She said this house and an aura about it that draws you in. She was not kidding!! This place was perfect. It's very spacious and beautifully decorated. The shady backyard was the greatest with it's palm and pine trees. The beach is right there and you can watch the gorgeous sunsets every night from yard or beach. It's close walking distance to shops and restaurants. We loved this place so much, we are definitely coming back next October. Can't wait!!!"

  • Excellent vacation house!

    "Everything was as presented and we were quite happy with the house, the furnishings, the pool and jacuzzi. The house is large -- big rooms. Not a typical vacation rental, this is a house that was made for a big family to live in. House was very clean. Furnishings are excellent -- ok, a little heavy for my taste but in excellent condition. We enjoyed the jacuzzi. It was easily heated (unlike many vacation rentals). The pool was clean on arrival. The "man cave" gave us great fun on the foosball table. The beach is an easy walk less than a block. Beautiful beach. Sunset was spectacular. We would certainly recommend this property. It is worth the money. Quiet neighborhood close to a grocery store and a good liquor store. No good restaurants on the island but we recommend the Blue Marlin further down."

  • Like Uncle Eddie's Awesome Margarita Shack

    "You know how Uncle Eddie has that house at the water where they are always serving margaritas and going out on the boat and sitting in the hot tub drinking wine coolers? This is just that place! It's got a bedroom for everyone, a pontoon boat for rent, a screened sunset deck, a bunch of couches to watch the game on, and a washer-dryer to rinse the beer out of your sweat pants. With a touch as delicate as Uncle Eddie's last girlfriend, one of the bedrooms is decorated in purple with a floral wallpaper border; the flowery bed comforter was probably a later addition. Like Uncle Eddie's place, maintenance is not so great, so mind that the drawers don't fall out when you pull them open. You probably should wear shoes inside the house as there are a few flooring nails sticking up in the places where the laminate buckled, and there are splinters on the old back stairs. Give the dishwasher a good shove closed, but for good measure you'd better put a towel down in front of it before you turn it on. Be careful to inquire about extra charges not listed on the rental agreement--propane to heat the spa, gas for the boat. Uncle Eddie's place is awesome cool, and you will have a fun time when you go to this place too. Bring on the tequila!"

  • Outstanding!

    "We stayed for a week in November 2014 and couldn't be happier!! The house was quite large and nicely furnished. The views are spectacular, especially from the third floor master! We fishe off the deck every day and rented a boat to utilize the dock further. We saw dolphins and a manatee within 10 feet of the dock! Incredible! Everything is very close and the shops and restaurants we went to were all excellent! We caught some nice fish off city pier and had a fish fry. We will return for sure!"
