Nokomis house description

Casa Coquina is a 2/1 Nokomis historic district bungalow just 1.2 miles to pristine Nokomis Beach and steps from nature preserves and parks for kayaking, biking, picnicking and more. Fully updated and restored and decorated with vintage tropical touches, the house was featured on HGTV in 2005. One bedroom has a Queen bed, the other a Full sized bed, both equipped with comfy cotton quilts and linens. Enjoy breakfast on your balcony deck overlooking a beautiful fenced and walled yard with a custom-built Tiki Hut. Hardwood floors, cypress and knotty pine walls and ceiling fans make Casa Coquina feel like a hunting or fishing lodge from years gone by. The kitchen has modern appliances: a large side-by-side fridge w/icemaker and through the door water and ice, dishwasher, glass topped range and lots of storage. It's open to the living room, which has comfortable sofas and a fireplace, and a separate dining/sun room with banquettes for lounging and reading. The Flamingo Bathroom even features the original pink and maroon fixtures!


Amenities: Casa Coquina radiates character and whimsy and will definitely appeal to anyone who loves that great 1950s era of Trader Vic's and tropical Tiki Culture. Owned by a freelance writer, Casa Coquina's guests have included artists, writers and musicians who appreciate and seek out creative and interesting vacation destinations. Though this is a vintage home, it's been fully updated and restored with modern conveniences, including new wiring and plumbing, updated appliances, central heat/air and ceiling fans. There's plenty of water pressure and a large hot water heater, as well as a washer and dryer on the premises. Casa Coquina is on a quiet lane, and you have two off-street parking spaces. The fenced yard backs up to a 3 acre historic mansion with beautiful gardens and wall. The home is just two blocks from US 41 and only 3 miles from I-75, making it easy to get just about anywhere.
