We own several units in Venetian Palms. Our first purchase was in Feb. 2012. We have stayed in each unit for a week. During our visits we notice that there is own going maintenance work like cleaning carpet in common areas,… Full Review ▶

Having lived here for over 5 years I have seen and lived both the negative and now positive points of this community. With a good HOA now in place many improvements have been done both structurally and tenant wise. The riff… Full Review ▶

I moved into Venetian Palms about 5 months ago. I moved there because the price was within my budget and they allowed larger pets. It's been a nice place so far. The landscaping is beautiful and the property is very pet… Full Review ▶

Venetian Palms is now a fabulous community to live in. Many positive changes have been made in the last couple years. It now has a HOA Board that is actively involved and has reinvented this complex. Yes, there are rules and… Full Review ▶

I've been living here for 5 months now and I can say full heartedly that this place is terrible. The BIGGEST problem that I've come up with is the management. For one, NO one is ever there. I've been by the… Full Review ▶

I must say we were a little hesitant about buying here after reading a few poor reviews from past residents, however, the positives out weighed the negatives so we moved here last year. Agreed... the management was touch and go at… Full Review ▶

My wife and I were lucky enough to be able to get a 2/2 here in 2009. As an investment, it was a smart buy but we really don't care about the investment aspect of it. It's our piece of paradise… Full Review ▶

If your looking at renting or buying here, DON'T. The landscaping is nice, but thats it. They claim to do background checks, but they don't. One of the neighbors was busted for child pornography and fraud. From what I have seen,… Full Review ▶

Most of the negative comments on here are true. I lived there during 2007 and management was no help in addressing the noise from my upstairs neighbor's kids. Who in the world would NOT put carpet in an upstairs unit. You… Full Review ▶

I urge you strongly to just let your place go. countrywide was their lender of choice, and they will NOT refinance or help modify your loans..... they don't care about you or your situations at all. People are foreclosing and not… Full Review ▶
