"The condo was as pictured, clean, and located in a quiet, peaceful community. Venetian Palms is close to shopping and restaurants and not far from the beaches and many tourist attractions. The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen functional. We often enjoyed having coffee or a glass of wine on the screened in lanai. Too bad for us that the condo is already rented for February and March of 2016! Thanks Jim for making our first snowbird rental experience so easy."

"It is as described, a very comfortable, clean, and ideally located beach house. The private beach access and pool were a bonus!! We were very happy with our accommodations and look forward to a return stay!! Our host, Brian has been responsive and great! He has gone out of his way to help us make our mini family reunion happen. Our only regret is that we did not have the opportunity to meet in person as intended. Thank you so so much, Brian, for everything!!!!! We shall be back!"

"We enjoyed unit 206 very much. The layout was spacious and very clean. Loved that we were just one building away from the beach. An easy walk to run back if you forgot something, etc. Another great thing is that it is just a short walk on the beach or two blocks to the Manatee Public Beach access. We went down there for volleyball, to get sno cones (3.20), listen to music in the evening and watch the sunset. We will miss those nights! Only a couple suggestions. The grill and set up outside looks like are supposed to sit out there with your family and eat but the sign at the pool says no food at the pool or pool deck. It would have been nice to sit outside and eat right there but we did not. We figured it meant it since there are only heavy glass plateware. If we are allowed to eat out there, then at least 6 plastic plates in the cabinet would be nice. The main bed was very very soft and sloped to middle. The twins were squeaking and hard. We were so tired though we slept well. There is only one beach umbrella and it does not work well. The latch is loose. We had to put something around it so it stayed up. The chairs around the pool and for the beach seemed to be made of steel since they were rusting. There were buckets and little shovels, a football, Frisbee, blow-up ring and plenty of chairs. The outside shower is nice. Not sure why the sidewalk blocks are different on this units side but they are very rough. One last thing would be nice, a map of the island. We struggled getting around and finding roads as our phone map service went in and out of service. The visitor info service at beach was empty 3 days in a row. We had a great time and enjoyed the hard waves one day and glass water another other. Loved seeing a manatee swim up to us too at the beach!"

"This house and the Englewood area made for a great vacation getaway. The house is incredibly well stocked and the cleanest place we have ever stayed. The decor is very well done and the master suite is really nice. We enjoyed watching the manatees in the canal and anyone could come by boat. Lots of cute restaurants and shops. Loved walking across the street to the beach. The owners could not have been easier to work with. We would definitely come back! We had ages 7 through 57 in our group and everyone loved it. Highly recommend!"
