About donna nozicka

We decided to purchase this home because of the natural springs and the tranquility of the area. We enjoy the local shops and dining. There are plenty of activities for everyone's liking in the area. From kids to adults. You can plan your day as busy or as easy as you like.

donna nozicka purchased this house in 2005

Why donna nozicka chose North Port

We really enjoy the area, it is close to what we want to do, if you want to go farther, we are 1 hour from Tampa north or 1 hour south to fort Myers. There are ferry's that travel to key west from fort Myers. Deep sea fishing tours in englewood and port Charlotte. Clearwater and siesta key, top rated soft white sand beaches are all with in driving range and visiting various places is very easy.

What makes this house unique

Staying here in the home is a perfect place for us. It is a great combination of just enough quiet but enough city too.

Ideal for us while searching for a new home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, cat, and I loved so much about this home. All of the exotic birds including storks, cranes, egrets and other wildlife were so interesting. It was quiet and you were more likely to see people walking or riding bikes in the street than anyone in a car. The shower was not working when we moved in and it was quickly fixed. The price was very reasonable and the owners very accommodating.

The 1 bedroom worked reasonably well for 2 people.

  • 3 of 5

We rented this unit while we were waiting for the close date on a house we were purchasing. The 1 bedroom unit worked reasonably well for the 2 of us (and our cat). The area comprising the living/dining portion was a bit small and did not cool well with the A/C but was within tolerance. Everything else worked great for us and the owner(s) was very understanding with some special needs and requests we had right before Hurricane Irma hit. Owner was very responsive to any communication and always prompt with requests. Would recommend this unit to any one or two people that might be interested. Would be a little too small for more than 2 people.

Quiet & peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The smaller side of the duplex worked perfectly for me - clean and just right for 1 person. The TV wasn't working the first day & Donna immediately arranged to have the problem resolved within a few hours., The neighborhood is very quiet & I enjoyed my early morning & evening walks. The location is convenient to Manasota Key, Englewood and other beaches. I met someone who recommended K & K Bakery. Delicious pastries, deserts & coffee - located on Tamiami very close to the rental. One thing that would be helpful is a list of a few local restaurants (not the typical chain restaurants). I would stay here again & now that I know the layout, I wouldn't hesitate to take my dog (small to medium).

My Florida home

  • 4 of 5

The area was right where we wanted to be. Some neighbors seemed not to be very happy that the house was being used for short term rentals. Very clean and had everything we needed. The apt. was to small for what we needed. The house looked great and the couple that was renting it were very nice. We will probably have to try to find a house next year as this one is already rented for the month that we need. I would strongly recommend the apt for a single person with a small pet. The bedroom was very large and comfortable.

We had a great experience here. The place was neat, clean, and conveniently located. Equally important is that the owner was friendly and helpful.

Roaring Spring

North Port

  • 5 of 5

Donna was very helpful and easy to reach. Every picture and everything she told us was correct. We loved the very quiet area and it was very close to all the bike paths and walking distance to warm mineral springs. It's close to all the grocery stores, Walgreens and family restaurants. We loved Venice beach and always got a parking spot each time we went. We found a local seafood place that was excellent!!! It's a must to go if you like fresh seafood (Cedar Reef Fish Camp). If your looking for a small inexpensive place in Florida, this is the place. Thank you Donna and Marion for our wonderful stay
