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 Florida Keys

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.

We recently enjoyed a stay at this beautiful home on Cudjoe Key. Everything was provided to make our stay fun and relaxed. The kitchen is fully equipped and bikes, fishing poles and even a kayak was provided for the renter's use. The house is located on a canal that leads to the ocean. Relaxing on the back porch you have a constant breeze and beautiful water view. Within the complex, there is a heated pool and tennis courts and it's conveniently located to area restaurants. We had a great time and would return to this location again.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately there was a power outage just before you arrived and the refrigerator and internet were affected. They were both up and running the day after you informed us. So sorry about any inconvenience Liz and I strive to make sure everything in the home works perfectly but have no control over power outages. I am not sure what you expected but all information and pictures are on our web site,. Everyone else who have rented have given us five stars so we must be doing something right.

Perfect Unit!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jim and Liz for renting us your beautiful home at Venture Out. We had a wonderful week. The unit was perfect! Very well stocked and clean. This unit has just about everything you need. The dock was nice and convenient to load and to clean your boat after a day on the water catching lobster. Even the neighbors were really nice. It was also nice to have so much available on TV on those down times. We have stayed at Venture Out several times but this is by far one of the nicest units we have stayed in. We are hoping that renting this unit will be the beginning of a summer tradition for us.

Owner's Response: Thanks James for the terrific five star review. This is actually our fiftieth five star review which means a lot to us. Liz and I work very hard to exceed our guests expectations. Glad to hear you did so well with the lobsters and had time for some fishing also. We always look forward for our previous guest to return and hope you come back soon.

Great Lower Keys Rental

  • 5 of 5

Great rental home for a week in the lower keys. We brought down a 23' boat, the boat ramp and pressure washer on the venture out property made it a less stressful process on arrival/departure considering other places I've rented. Dock is in great shape and has its own fenders as well as 2 hoses near filet table. Unfortunately the week we stayed was too windy to fish most of the week so we took advantage of the pandora tv and excellent sound system and the lounge chairs on the dock. Great location and easy canals and channels to navigate to Atlantic side and Gulf. I'll definitely consider this home for a trip next year.

Excellent house to rent!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent vacation home/destination! The house and amenities are exactly as shown and talked about in the description. Jim and Liz have a very nice home away from home and that is how it feels when you get there, warm and inviting, you really feel welcome and the décor sets you in the keys! The house has everything you need for vacation, just bring food and drinks and everything else is there, towels/sheets/pillows/grill/fresh water/ice/freezer downstairs for storage/fishing gear/kayak/bikes and much more. The location is awesome, we rented a boat and snorkeled at Looe Key and explored beaches and sandbars in the "back country" (the gulf side), and had a blast. We had our own little oasis everyday. Restaurants/tiki bars/shopping are minuets away. We had 4 in our group, me, my wife, daughter and her friend and were completely comfortable. Many attraction around to do if you do not have or rent a boat like, snorkeling/scuba/fishing/site seeing/eco tours/kayaking and many more. A definite return to here and rent again!
