|Minimum Stay||1 - 3 nights|
A lovely, private home set back on a quiet side road, our Sante Joseph Palm House is a real retreat. Half a dozen palm trees and other trees beside fully obscure the property from sight - once inside, it’s your own little world. It’s packed with Old Florida charm - truly delightful.
Just three blocks to the beach and very close as well to downtown Venice, staying here puts your vacation in pole position. After a day of pool games and beach reading, stroll lazily towards Venice Beach to enjoy the sunset. End up at Venice Pier for evening cocktails - the more grenadine, the better.
An electric heated pool means lots of reasons to stay at home with both family and your pets. It’s heated, for use year-round. Tropical gardens surround the pool and patio. Bright flowers buzz with butterflies as you look on in awe. Inside, keep cool with central air conditioning and ceiling fans while enjoying a DVD in the living room or whipping up a snack in the large kitchen. Past guests love the spotless condition in which the kitchen is kept.
Dine together at night in the formal living room - a change of pace from the many poolside barbecues you’re sure to enjoy. An outdoor lanai, a screened-in living room, is the very definition of comfort. Look out over the pool while enjoying some iced tea and a book in the shade. The house sleeps ten guests in four bedrooms.
Wireless Internet keeps laptop users constantly connected to the world outside - though you might soon decide to ignore it completely. Located on Venice Island, there’s plenty to do within walking distance that will entertain all ages and interests. In-suite laundry facilities keep the focus of your vacation on enjoyment and off chores, allowing you to return home without the stress of laundry before returning to school and work.
In the master bedroom enjoy a comfortable queen-sized bed and brand new furniture. Roomy storage and wall closets, found in every bedroom, are very convenient. No matter how long your stay it’s always nice to fully unpack. The bedrooms are all particularly large compared to other nearby homes - great if you prefer that extra bit of space.
Guests in bedroom two have a queen bed as well, and furniture of a similarly high quality. Twin beds add flexibility to bedroom three, while the fourth bedroom has a single bed with trundle underneath - great for children. To accommodate larger groups, there’s also a day bed in the family room and a sleeper sofa in the living room. These sleep two guests each.
Verizon Fiber Optics TV mean you’ll never miss a favorite show or sports game - and wireless Internet is an absolute must-have as well. A dishwasher and garbage disposal offer the necessary conveniences of home.
Rent bikes nearby and explore the area at a slower pace. Never again search for parking and get to the beach in minutes. Explore the home’s neighborhood and surrounding excitement on Google Maps: 507 Sante Joseph Street, Venice, Florida 34285.
Hi! My name is Steve Milo and I started Vacation Rental Pros in 2006. Our family stays in vacation rental homes whenever we travel, both domestically and abroad!

We now manage over 1,800 properties in Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina. We have homes in Ft. Myers Beach, Orlando, St. Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast, Ponte Vedra Beach, Hilton Head and Gatlinburg. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2016. Please call if you need help booking your dream vacation!
The house was wonderful and we highly recommend it. The lanai is so beautiful that we spent most of our time on it. The pool was losing water and we also had some electric go out and the management showed up quickly to take care of the problems. It would be helpful if there was a general instruction book in the house as to things such as garbage day pick up, circuit breaker location, etc.
We paid for 8 days, up front. When we arrived we discovered that the property was filthy, outdated, and not in a suitable condition for tenants. We vacated less than 24hrs after we arrived, and have heard nothing from the management company. We will never use this service again.
Here are a few of the discrepancies:
-Rodent droppings on kitchen counter
-Mildew smell throughout home.
-Tile floor was so dirty it turned out feet black.
-Mildew visible in bathrooms.
-Trash from previous tenants under beds.
-Towels and sheets left in washing machine wet (soured).
-Trash had not been taken out to the street by previous tenant. Animals had strewn trash around the cans, and the trash was rancid and smelled terrible.
-The pool was dirty and the concrete was cracked.
-A hose was placed in the pool and on a timer, I'm guessing because the pools condition caused it to leak which requires constant refilling.
-The wood fence in the back yard was broken and leaning. It was propped up with a metal bed frame. This was visible from the pool and patio.
We contacted customer service, and hoped for some kind of resolution. We have not been contacted by the management company.
This property is priced similarly to upscale hotels in Sarasota. For that price, we expected MUCH more quality and cleanliness. At the very least, we expected an apology from someone, it would be appropriate to refund the price of the rental. I will be contacting the Better Business Bureau, the Florida Real Estate Commission, and participating in as many online surveys as possible to share this experience.
I rented this house with seven of my friends and this house was exactly what we were looking for. It was clean, in a great location (so close to the beach) and comfortable. I would definitely rent it again!
We had a very pleasant stay. Had to wash the bath mats before our guests arrived, and bought a couple pillows.
Nice location,clean house . I woulde recomand changing the mattress,not good enough
The reservation specialists did a great job helping us. Location and size was great. Just a couple maintenance issues that should have been taken care of, but not enough to deter us from staying again. It was more of inconvenience.
