About Susan Phillips

We're an English couple who fell in love with Sarasota and the surrounding area and moved here permanently 12 years ago. This is the home we first bought in the community and when we moved to a larger home to accommodate all our visitors! we decided to keep this one for people to rent and to find out for themselves everything that we discovered. That is why we elect to deal directly with our guests .... not only for a more personal service which is beneficial to both parties but because it also saves fees imposed by Homeaway/VRBO/VacationRentals on the owner and the guests.

Susan Phillips purchased this house in 2004

Paradise Inn -A wonderful Place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have been annual visitors at this wonderful home for five years and we have only positive memories of your property and its location at Venetian Golf & River Club. This Paradise Inn always felt like home from the minute we first arrived 5 years ago. The house is wonderful, the location is fabulous, 10 minutes from the beach, close to I 75 and a beautiful pool that looks out over the lake. A fantastic sunset every night, along with the outdoor kitchen. What more could someone ask for? We were impressed from the beginning how prepared you were for visitors as everything is provided from wine stoppers to bicycles.

We loved every minute we spent there. Over the years we got to appreciate the adjacent communities and all of its the amenities that were located nearby.

We feel badly leaving but excited to becoming home owners at Venetian.

Thanks again for being the best owners a tenant could expect. I would recommend your wonderful house and Venetian Golf and River Club no question about it. I would give the house a 10 out of 10 if there was a rating system for it.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to lose such great guests but appreciate your comments about the house. We have always tried to ensure a 'home from home' and maintain the house as if we were living there. We have so many positive views and guests now return year after year. The problem is that they love it so much that they become home owners here! But who can blame them when it is such a beautiful community in a wonderful area.
