About Jim Panzer

Elizabeth and James, live in Palm Beach county Fl. but love to go to our summer house in the Keys. We enjoy diving, fishing, traveling, exercising. Book directly with us so for that personal touch.

Jim Panzer purchased this house in 2005

Why Jim Panzer chose Lower Keys Area

My wife and I picked Venture Out because it is very secure and has all the amenities you could want. The people here are very friendly and the community has lots of activities. The diving and fishing are great and we love to go to Key West to enjoy the night life.

What makes this house unique

The best amenity has to be the dock at your door step. Just jump onto the boat and take off. You can be in the Gulf or the ocean in minutes. We love to go to Looe Key Marine park where you can snorkel with hundreds of tropical fish in five to fifteen feet of water. You can fish the flats or open water. I have caught many grouper, kingfish, wahoo, cobia, snapper and many other fish. I take my grandkids fishing at the dock and we catch plenty of snapper on frozen corn. There is so much to do you don't have to go out on a boat, there is a great gym up the road, lots of restaurants, a huge pool and plenty of activities within the community. My wife likes to walk in the morning with her friends, bike around the compound or just relax, read a book and look over the bay.

2nd Year we Returned for 2 Week Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best rentals we've ever stayed at. The owner has such a good response action and goes out of their way to make sure everything is OK. We had such a lovely time. My husband uses the kayak and we so enjoyed the porch again this year. We meant to use the bikes but we just couldn't budge ourselves off the porch with the beautiful view with a drink in our hand smile We would give this more than five stars if we could.

Perfect House in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house location is great if you are looking to be close to Key West but not in all the traffic and noise, it's about a half hour away. It's also about 20 minutes to Bahia Honda, probably one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen.

The house itself is clean and is well stocked with towels and sheets. Also the kitchen has everything you could possibly need if you wanted to cook. There are a few restaurants close by and a few take out delivery places.

The view of the canal and ocean from the deck is awesome and siting outside on it in the breeze is wonderful.

I had a great time and would stay there again.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the keys and this house was perfect for our stay! The house is very well equipped, very clean and in a great location. The beds were comfortable and had plenty of extra bedding, I tend to be on the chilly side. Our family used the bikes to cruise around the community. They also have pool noodles and a beach umbrella that we used at the beach. Cudjoe Key is situated in between Marathon and Key West which was great for us since we had activities planned on both keys. We can't wait to go back!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This property was just perfect. The accommodations were comfortable and the house has everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The porch is great for watching the sun come up in the morning and having a drink in the afternoon. The location is close enough to Key West for day trips, but not too close. Lots of great bars and restaurants within a few miles. Boating is convenient and the staff at Venture Out is friendly and helpful. The owners are top notch....friendly and available to answer any questions. We will definitely keep this property at the top of our list for our next trip.

Amazing location! Great for families with kids! Close to Key West & Marathon

  • 5 of 5

LOVED the property. This home is located on a canal with a view of the open water; the Venture Out location has a swimming pool, hot tub, tennis courts, shuffle board, basketball and a small store!!

The house itself was spotless, clean and well appointed. You will never run out of towels! Having the washer/dryer in the unit made for less packing of clothes which meant more room for souvenirs. The outside balcony was a beautiful location to have your morning coffee and the pool is open later in the evening to tire out any energetic kids.

The master bedroom had a nice sized en suite bathroom and we never ran out of hot water (with 3 of us taking showers each day). The décor is all "Keys" and you also have access to bikes and other outdoor fun toys.

The overall cost was close to what we were going to pay for a small hotel/motel nearby; having the resort amenities and the entire home to ourselves made the trip much more relaxing and stress free.

The best part is you are just about 30 minutes our of Key West and the views on the drive down make multiple trips easy on the eyes and your gas tank. We took advantage of the Dolphin Research Center (HIGHLY recommend), Bahia Honda Beach, having a bite to eat at the Galley Restaurant for breakfast (have the salmon and cream cheese bagel!) LOTS of things to do and find within an hour of your doorstep.

Thanks to Jim and his lovely wife for their hospitality. I hope to visit again soon! If you're on the fence click the BOOKING button; you won't be disappointed!
