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 Florida South West

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 country but enough city too.

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

Great stay

We stayed for 4 months and it is a very nice place. The area is very quiet and friendly. Close to the beach but not bumper to bumper traffic like a lot of places. Everything we wanted was close by and the owes are very helpful.
