About the Property

Includes Many Free Amenities and Equipment For a Perfect Vacation Getaway.

Lakefront home feels like a remote cottage but is actually located in a beautifully landscaped, secure, family-friendly, gated community within easy walk to the Gulf of Mexico adjoining Casey Key in Sarasota County. Our lake behind the house has great fishing for kids of all ages. There are 3 rods and reels in the garage so try your luck. The snook in the lake are suckers for lures, but the tilapia like dough balls (try a little peanut butter on them). The tilapia are like me...we like peanut butter on everything.

Kayak from our neighborhood launching point or pick your own favorite, there are several within 2 miles.

Walk to Nokomis Beach on Casey Key, 1 mile, and enjoy the surf, sunsets, and moonrise or catch some sun and read a good book.

Bicycle the Legacy Trail, 1 mile away. It wanders for 16 miles along scenic routes and waterways; and best of all, no cars.

Use our clubhouse...perhaps a swim in the heated, saltwater pool with outdoor heated shower; enjoy the relaxing hot-tub; play a round of tennis; work-up a sweat in the exercise room; horseshoes; shuffleboard.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Randy and Bev Harkness were college sweethearts, have been married over 45 years, and reside in Louisville KY where they have lived for over 35 years. Both graduated from the University of Louisville. Bev is retired as manager of the University of Louisville student credit union. Randy is a consultant and computer geek who keeps says he is retiring but never actually stops. They have 2 sons, 1 fantastic daughter-in-law, and 6 grandchildren. One of Randy's brothers and his wife also own a home in The Inlets. So does her sister and brother-in-law.

Why the Owner Chose Nokomis, FL, USA:
Bev and Randy purchased this property because we have always vacationed in this area of Florida even before we had children. We love the sights, sounds, smells, and activities it offers. Once you visit you can easily tell the activities we enjoy because the home is equipped with toys, sporting equipment, and gadgets for you to enjoy without spending extra money to rent them. We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay. If you think of anything we can do to make your stay better, please let us know, and we will do our very best to help.
