Nokonmis Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house for 10 days awaiting the closing on our new home in Venice. The location of the house was perfect, it was very easy to get everywhere. The furniture was comfortable and kitchen was adequately stocked. It was in the high 90s during our stay and we found the air conditioning to work well but the addition of some fans to help move the air would help.

loved it

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I came down in May for a vacation. I had waited until the last minute to find a place. Owners were great about letting us rent the place without much notice.

It was very well stocked with everything you might need. I would stay there again. My husband likes finding sharks teeth at Nokomis & Manasota.

Very quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

For the most part the manager/owner did not give us any bad information. He told us it was quiet and this pace is ideal for 55 and over. The property was clean, well maintained and exactly what the photos showed.

The manager/owner was very helpful whenever we call on him and his response was very quick.

The biggest problem we had was with the furniture and TV's. The furniture was wicker outdoor type that was very uncomfortable and the TV's were very old. we had to rent furniture and TV's. we were told that problem would be fixed soon. Also there were no cleaning supplies for the bathrooms nor a vacuum cleaner.

I would recommend this rental for people over 55 with pets.

Owner's Response: Hi Jack, Thanks you for your 4 star rating. We are happy you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful area. Unfortunately I think your review gives a little bit of a misleading impression to other prospective guests so I have to address some of the things you said. As far as the 3 recliners and 1 TV you rented, we did not know about this until I saw the truck taking them away 2 days before the end of your 60 day stay. If we had known, we would have obtained more comfortable chairs for you, just as we got a new gas grill for you on the 3rd day of your stay. You came to the premises months before your stay and saw the furniture and the TVs before you made the reservation. At that time, neither of us knew the wicker chairs would not be comfortable enough for a two month stay. You were only the fourth set of guests to ever rent this unit and the first three didn't say anything about the chairs not being comfortable enough. Once you told us, we replaced the wicker chairs with a love seat and a recliner the day you left. Because people were arriving that day, March 1, we have not yet had a chance to update the photos in the listing. The wicker furniture became extra lanai furniture, although I do not believe the wicker furniture was originally outdoor furniture. As far as the vacuum cleaner, we brought you a modern vacuum in good working condition the 2nd day of your stay. When you left, it was in a closet with a completely severed cord. By "very old" TVs, what you mean is that we do not supply flat screen HD TVs. This is true. We supply the TVs shown in the photos and that you saw before you rented. We supply large tube TVs that would formerly have been considered high end TVs. These are TVs from right before flat screens. They have DVD inputs, etc. They are not ancient or deficient. The reason for this is that we have to consider the summer guests with families, and large flat screens are more easily knocked over or damaged. All in all these are fairly minor matters, which I think accounts for the fact you gave us 4 stars.
