What Past Guests Are Saying
We found paradise in Florida
Paradise found was our family holiday at a Taste of Paradise (four adults and two teenage boys) October 29th to November 5th and we all voted it the best Florida holiday ever.
Sandy Storr the owner is very professional and her Villa is five star plus with everything you could possibly require and more to make a holiday so enjoyable.
It was so restful after the Parks and situated in a beautiful setting just minutes from Manasota Beach (with ample free parking).
The Villa is very large with a fantastic pool and there is so much to see and do at Manasota Florida we will be returning.
We found paradise in Florida - we found a Taste of Paradise in Manasota.
Response from Sandy - 11/13/2011
It is so rewarding to know that guests appreciate the effort we put into making our villa the best.
We are happy to share our Taste of Paradise with you, and look forward to your next visit.
This is probably the best villa we have ever stayed in. Clean, well equipped, nice location and all 5 children very happy. Nice and spacious as we were 2 families sharing and tere was plenty of room for everyone and 2 very nice main bedrooms for the parents

Heaven away from home.
From the time we booked with Sandy and finally returning home, the experience was superb. The photos don't really do the villa justice, it is really beautiful and the surrounding area truly wonderful. On arrival, the villa was well prepared and spotless. It is the most well equipped villa we have ever stayed in. The locality is ideal for visits to the beach (only a 15min walk) and shop and restaurants, just a short drive away. The local residents are very friendly and welcoming, and the wild life outstanding. The management company are very friendly and efficient. I would recommend this property to the most discerning person and hope one day to return.

What a wonderful experience renting this gorgeous Villa from Sandy. From the booking stages right through to the prompt return of our security deposit, Sandy has been more than helpful, well organized and very efficient with any and all inquiries!
We were taken back by the beauty of this Villa, it was so roomy, elegant & bright and quite honestly, the pictures don't do this home justice. The gorgeous kitchen is well appointed and Sandy has obviously taken much time in deciding what to equip the villa with so that the vacationer has only to worry about enjoying their time in paradise. The pool and Lanai are worth the visit alone. The layout is so roomy and comfortable along with wonderful outdoor furniture to relax on or enjoy a BBQ on the large gas grill.
We also appreciated the notes explaining the villa and surrounding location, everything is well organized and information is at your fingertips.
We walked (10 minute stroll) or drove (2 minutes) to Manasota Beach and were thrilled to see dolphins swimming around the bridge over the intercostal waterway. The beach is clean and accommodating and quite quickly we became seasoned "shark tooth" hunters. We appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella and coolers that Sandy supplies for the visits to the ocean.
Any of your shopping needs are a quick drive into South Venice (Walmart, Publix, Target etc). The choice of restaurants is numerous and you will find a nice mix between well known chains to unique one of a kinds.
We enjoyed Sharky's at the pier and although some may find it a bit expensive, it was an enjoyable atmosphere with delicious food.
This area of Florida is for those looking for beaches, fishing, gorgeous sunsets, golf and relaxation. Our entire family from toddler, teens to adults enjoyed everything about this Villa and this area of Florida!
Definitely a Taste of Paradise
Enjoyed a wonderful holiday. Everything perfect from the swimming pool to the luxurious house.This place simply ticks all the boxes.Very near a beautiful beach with glorious sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico almost every night.Cou;d not recommend highly enough!
We had high expectations of this villa as we had booked it for our wedding week. On entering the villa (10 of us ageing from 13-73) we felt welcomed and instantly at ease. It was more than we had hoped for. A real home from home with every need catered for. We were truly spoilt and all felt privileged to be staying in such a prestigious villa. The pool was fantastic (especially Moby Dick). The surrounding area was serene, and just a short drive from one of the many shopping malls. We cannot praise/recommend this villa highly enough. It will be in our memories for a very long time, or until the next time!!

Paradise this certainly is.
Having travelled the length and breadth of Florida for the last 16 years, our party of 4 adults thought we had experienced the best villas. It came as a surprise to find tucked away in the most private and quiet of places "Paradise" !!. It is difficult to to describe all of the outstanding features of the villa, 2 master suites, great kitchen, comfortable and well planned living and a private pool you can only share with the wildlife outside the cage. The location was for us ideal, with good restaurants and shopping on the doorstep and a beach which we visited nearly every day at sunset. Great value and an experience you will remember for a long time.Howard's on the waterfront is a great dinner venue along with the Lock & Key. Just enjoy it is difficult not to.
We enjoyed two fabulous weeks at this villa over the school Easter break. On arrival, the villa was spotlessly clean and very well equiped. It has every kitchen utensil that you may need including a blender for the pina coladas!! The furnishings are of a high quality and the beds were very comfortable.There are 2 good sized double bedrooms with ensuite at opposite ends of the villa as wel as 2 further twin rooms so good for 2 families if needed. We especially enjoyed the pool and deck which were very private and had sun all day having both a southerly and westerly aspect The lanai was large and had a fan for warm evenings. The beach is 2 minutes away by car or an easy 10 minute walk. Sandy has even supplied bikes as well as cooler boxes and beach toys. There are shops within easy reach by car including an enormous walmart as well as Publix. Please visit Yummies donut store on the way. Their donuts are so good. We enjoyed visiting Venice too...nice shops for an afternoon stroll, another great beach and of course Sharkys restaurant. Sandy was always quick to reply to emails and returned our damage deposit promptly. We would definitely return.
