PROS: This unit is a one-minute walk to the beach. Parking was by assigned space. Unit was bug free. Swimming pool was nice, with plenty of seating. Laundry facilities on site were sufficient. All appliances worked. CONS: I was surprised to discover that this rental was in a retirement community. This unit is a time capsule of the 1980’s and is in serious need of updating. The only updated items in the unit were the refrigerator and pedestal sink in the bathroom. The front door has serious wood rot throughout and would benefit greatly from a fresh coat of paint, if not a replacement. It was next to impossible to read while inside the unit, as the lighting throughout is extremely minimal (both lamps and windows combined). Whoever the cleaning service is, needs to do a much better job of cleaning. We arrived to burnt-on food on the foil lined burner pans and the floors were in serious need of a good vacuuming and mopping. The areas under the kitchen table as well as the coffee table have not been cleaned at all in quite some time. NEUTRAL: The queen sized bed was okay – on the border of being worn out, whereas the pull-out sofa was surprisingly comfortable. BEACH: The gulf waters are gorgeous, and this is a great place to find shark teeth. However, this is not a beach for younger children as it has a very sharp drop off on both the sand and in the water. The sand is also very coarse and grey.

Great quiet location and a clean as advertised place.

Dear Guest, Thank you for positing a review of your stay at our beachfront condo in Venice, Florida. We truly appreciate your feedback and opinion, as it helps us to know what you liked about the condo and where we may need to improve. We were excited to learn that you liked the condo unit being only a one-minute walk to the beach, that the condo was bug free, and that all of the appliances worked. We were also very happy that you were pleased with your FREE assigned parking space and that you liked our huge Olympic swimming pool, as well as the on-site coin operated laundry facilities. We would like to let you know, however, that the condo complex is NOT a retirement community. All of the condos within the complex are privately owned. Some owners reside there year round and other owners rent their condo units to guests, such as we do. We are sorry that you felt that condo unit #24 is a time capsule of the 1980’s and is in need of serious updating. Recently we have installed new ceramic floor tile, new vertical blinds, purchased a new refrigerator, purchased a new sleeper sofa-bed, and updated the bathroom. We are also sorry that you felt that it was almost impossible to read while inside the condo because the lighting was minimal, even though the condo has several lamps and lighted ceiling fans throughout. In addition, this condo is an end unit which has two windows in the living room and two windows in the bedroom, in addition to the sliding glass door that leads to the attached lanai (Florida room). We would like to thank you for notifying us that the wooden front door has serious wood rot and would benefit from a fresh coat of paint or be replaced. We will definitely look into this matter. We were very surprised to learn that you felt that our cleaning service needs to do a better job of cleaning. We have never received cleaning complaints in the past and we typically receive positive reviews about how clean the condo is. We were shocked to find out that there was burnt food left on the foil lined stove burner pans, that the floors were in serious need of a good vacuuming and mopping, and that the areas under the kitchen table, as well as the coffee table have not been cleaned in quite some time. We will definitely contact our cleaning service to make sure that this never occurs in the future. In regard to the beds in the condo unit, they were replaced just a little over one year ago, so we can't possibly believe that the Queen-Bed was on the boarder of being worn out. We were very happy that you liked the gorgeous waters of Gulf of Mexico and that we offer a great place to find shark teeth. Unfortunately, however, we cannot control Mother Nature who washes out the sand on the beach, creating a drop off in the sand and in the water. We also cannot control the coarseness and color of the sand. In summary, we would like to thank you for staying with us and we look forward to you staying with us again for your next tropical beachf
