You will find many comfortable seats poolside.

Golf, tennis, local restaurants, and shopping are only minutes away and just a short drive north is Sarasota, Florida where you can find music, theater, galleries, and more shopping.

The home includes an open layout with living room, newly renovated kitchen with quartz breakfast bar and countertops, a separate dining room, 2 large bedrooms with 5 beds and windows looking out to the covered pool and lanai. Outside you will find a net for a Pickleball or Badminton court as well as corn hole and a golf toss game. Many beach toys are available for your use along with a kayak, a paddleboard, many chairs, and kids’ toys (sand buckets, shovels, and life preservers).

Featuring a spacious floor plan, this beautiful coastal home near the Gulf of Mexico has been decorated to reflect the casual elegance of the area around the beach at Casey Key but without the high prices.

The Sea Turtle Beach Home has a mirror image duplex home that is called the Dolphin Pool & Beach Home (VRBO #1021349). You may be interested in this for multi-family gatherings. The Sea Turtle and Dolphin homes are both beautiful with similar functionality and layouts. Most of the beds, furniture, TVs, Internet and appliances and are exactly the same for both the Sea Turtle and Dolphin. The Sea Turtle Beach Home is on the north side of the property so in the winter it is a little more shaded while the Dolphin Beach Home is on the south side of the property that gets a little more sun and natural light coming in, especially during the fall and winter. However, the Sea Turtle contains a new LaZboy air mattress sleeper sofa that is easier to sleep on while the Dolphin sleeper sofa is an older coil-based mattress. Due to the position of the pool and lanai with the home and the driveway, the Sea Turtle has two bedrooms with direct views onto the lanai and pool while the Dolphin has one bedroom (master with king bed) with direct views onto the lanai and pool area while the other bedroom looks out to the driveway pickleball court and garden area. Otherwise, there are no substantial differences. The Pool, Pickleball Court / Badminton Court, and area to play Cornhole or Golf Ball Toss Game are the only shared areas. There are separate pool lanai seating areas and tables for each Beach Home, separate Grills, separate Fire pots, and everything else is separate.

If you want to have a family reunion vacation or have friends close by with more folks, both Beach Homes add up providing the many amenities listed below.

About Rex Geissler

Growing up in Florida, my wife enjoyed the best of the beaches. It was always a special time to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet with family and friends. Michele had heard about the beaches south of Tampa where she grew up but did not experience them until we went to Nokomis Beach and Casey Key. We fell in love with the area. And since my husband is from Colorado and we live on a mountain property named Quartz Mountain Ranch, the island beaches give us an incredible contrast to the mountains.

Rex Geissler purchased this house in 2017

Why Rex Geissler chose Nokomis

When we first saw this property, and the amazing pool and lanai we fell instantly in love with it. There is a warmth in this home and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

The couple blocks to Nokomis Beach and Casey Key, the unobstructed Gulf views from the Crows Nest deck, the large amazing swimming pool and lanai, the new Fire Pit with lighted palm trees, the paddle board, the kayak, and the closeness to the trolley stop made this the perfect property to enjoy all that the Gulf Coast has to offer!

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Has a great three week stay at this home with my family of five. The pictures are great at depicting the home and really give you a good picture of what you expect. The pool is great for the kids and the beach toys and wagon in the garage made it an easy walk to the beach each day to build sandcastles, play in the sand, and find sharks teeth.

When taking a break from the beach the home has a large newer television (65" I am guessing) to make relaxing and watching movies with the family enjoyable.

Location was also great as not only is the beach in close proximity but grocery and the like are only a short drive away in the other direction.

Another great thing was that friend of ours rented the adjacent home and we were able to vacation together and still have out own homes.

Rex is also great to deal with.

We plan to be here again in the near future.

Well equipped for fun at the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to enjoy my grandkids for thanksgiving week. The warm water pool was a hit with the kids. So well equipped with everything you can think of to have fun at the beach. I loved being able to walk out the front door and be at the beach in just a few minutes.I will be back.

It's a great place to stay and very well supplied!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, everything worked as it should. The owners had everything there you could possibly need, the location is excellent, 3 blocks away! The pool is great and they have bikes, beach chairs, and lots of other stuff there for you to use. Pelican Alley has awesome food and it's 2 minutes away. Look up Sal's Pizza in Sarasota if you want some excellent pizza and Italian food! We will definitely be back!! Thanks for the best vacation!!

Henderson, ky

Beautiful property and a nice short walk/drive to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This home was newly renovated and all of the updates were beautiful with a great "home" feeling. The owner, Rex, was great with communicating with us throughout our stay. The heated pool was a wonderful touch for our children when they needed a break from the sand and waves. The location was perfect and in a quite area!
