About Us

Welcome To Palmetto Cottage Rental

Come and enjoy Palmetto Cottage, a newly renovated family friendly retreat in the tranquil neighborhood of South Venice, Florida. Experience the laid back, easy culture of Venice in the privacy of a quaint home all to yourself.  The Cottage grants space to spread out in relaxing rooms that capture the essence of the Old Floridian style yet are carried into today with a Boho flair, while offering the convenience of a well-stocked kitchen and delivering all the comforts of home. The ease of two full bathrooms both equipped with showers that rain fresh clean filtered water and distance from your neighbors being divided by a lovely spacious yard interlaced with tropical landscaping and towering oak trees are other bonuses that will be appreciated. At the Cottage you have the freedom to experience your visit as a local. You might ride one of the 3 bikes 1.5 miles to Shamrock Park to explore the many trails and diverse wildlife or journey a bit farther to Historic Downtown Venice for shopping in boutiques or a bite to eat. 

Possibly, you’ll take a 30 minute drive to the country’s #1 rated beach, Siesta Key, to rub your feet in the pristine, white powder sand and take a dip in the calm, emerald waters. Maybe you’ll stay in and encounter the many species of birds that inhabit the neighborhood or take a dip in the spa while you enjoy a glass of wine or delve into a good book. On the other hand, you may stream a movie on one of the Cottage’s 3 – 4K SmartCast T.V.’s in conjunction with high speed internet. Whatever your vacation goals are, they are sure to be met at The Cottage here in the peaceful, relaxing neighborhood of quiet South Venice

South Venice is perfectly situated between the Tamiami and Lemon Bay inlet. There are 3 easily accessed beaches with in 5 miles of The Palmetto Cottage in South Venice. South Venice Beach is notable due to the private ferry that can only be accessed by the South Venice Beach Ferry located in our neighborhood. Be sure to head to Manasota Key Beach to find some sharks teeth or relax at Venice beach or wonder on the pier or in Venice’s charming downtown. There are numerous walking trails and things to discover in Shamrock Park. Biking is a favorite past time along these walking trails as well. Renting a kayak or jet ski is also an enjoyable activity in the Lemon Bay inlet. Sarasota is only 20 – 30 minutes away.

What People Are Saying

“What a gem! We travel a lot and were stopping in Venice for a short week, on our way elsewhere. After staying here, we wish we had more time! This is a newly flipped home and the owners have done a great job! Kristin and Lance, the hosts, should certainly go into coaching ALL rental home owners as to what to do and what not to do. Kristin’s customer service is outstanding, she is quick, helpful and one can tell, she’s just a nice person who truly wants you to enjoy your stay and be comfortable. Having new kitchenware (which means clean, not gross pots & pans) are a plus. Comfy beds/linens, bathroom linens, everything is top notch. They provide a beach wagon, chairs, toys, all the shark tooth hunting gear one would need. Kristin and Lance have truly thought of every convenience and put those things in their home. The home is as pictured, spacious enough rooms and thoughtfully decorated. They have not missed anything in stocking the home – even Android and iPhone chargers next to the bed! A printer is available if one needs to print something also. Kristin and Lance had a lovely, thoughtful welcome basket, which again, they didn’t miss a thing! The home sits in a quiet residential neighborhood that is right off Englewood Road, which gets you to everywhere easily. Convenient to 3-4 different beaches and we enjoyed all of them. Plenty of restaurants nearby and downtown Venice main street has many good restaurants, shopping and people watching. Bikes in the garage are actually WORKING bikes (which seems rare to find in rentals!). We used them daily and put on a lot of miles without incident. Didn’t think we’d use a hot tub, but did dip in and found it very relaxing and quiet to enjoy on the porch after a day of biking or golfing. I’d highly recommend, without any hesitation, to return to this rental. Absolutely refreshing in rental world to come across such thoughtful hosts who take pride in “doing it right!”  – Brian & Kris Minnesota

A Great Cottage

This cottage / backyard is so very comfortable. We loved the location, two minutes from Tamiami Trail that has absolutely everything, every restaurant you could every want. Kristin has provided so many amenities and extra supplies to ensure guests have a comfortable stay. The bathrooms and kitchen are so nice and updated with everything you need and the cottage is clean and well stocked with so many extras. we felt very safe in this quiet friendly neighborhood. – Sheila Sargent 02-03-2023

“Every little detail is accounted for and thought of in this airbnb. Very well equipped, perfect location to SO many things to do and beaches to explore. This host was incredibly knowledgable and quick to reply to any need or question I had… regardless of how tedious or insignificant my questions were. This beautiful home was extremely clean and the hot tub made for the icing on the cake. She even provided all of the beach necessities, such as the cart, chairs, umbrellas, shark tooth sifters, and SO much more. I travel very often and this by far, was one of the best places I have stayed. Five Stars! ***** I simply can not wait to return! Thank you Ms Kristen for such a delightful airnbn experience. Blessings to you and yours!”  – Tina R.

Very tastefully decorated, comfortable, well-equipped place!

This is THE most well-equipped rental home we’ve ever visited! The owner has thought of everything to have all the comforts of home. The neighborhood is quiet but close to beaches in Venice and Englewood. The bikes with locks and helmets were all very good condition. This home is exactly as advertised and more! – Mike Cancellieri, Apr 01, 2022

5 star Cottage in Venice,

My husband and I booked this adorable, recently remodeled, cottage in Venice for 6 weeks. We were greeted with a welcome basket and gift certificate. This cottage was the best equipped rental we have been in (and we’ve rented many properties in the past 20 years). From the crock pot to emery boards, sharp knives to food storage containers – these hosts have thought of everything. While this home is close to beaches, shopping, and restaurants; the neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. Kristin was very friendly and responsive to all our inquiries. We thoroughly enjoyed this gem and highly recommend it!! – Nancie Dempsey, Mar 08, 2022
