This quaint cottage home is the PERFECT place to relax, and to also enjoy the tropical landscaping while sitting on our private wood deck. It is located in a very quiet and safe neighborhood on a lot with numerous flowering plants and palms. We are less than a mile (and much closer 'as the crow flies') from one of the most BEAUTIFUL beaches in the world - Nokomis beach and Casey Key.
You can easily ride a bike or walk to the beach! The road leading to the beach was just repaved and now includes a bike path. On the way to the beach, stop in at Pelican Alley (for the BEST crabcakes), or Pop's (fish and chips anyone?) and have a bite to eat...they are great casual restaurants right on the intracoastal waterway. There is also a general store, homemade ice cream, a surf shop, and water sports rentals all within walking distance of our home.
Our home features a private screened in patio made of terracotta tile with a teak wooden table and chairs for outdoor dining. The screened lanai area opens up to an open-air, private wooden deck which is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. This area is perfect for star watching at night, tanning in private, or for letting your children go outside to play in an enclosed and safe place! There's even a hammock for that favorite book (or maybe a nap?). It is a very spacious deck. It's the most amazing open-air, peaceful feeling...
The inside of the home is like new... freshly painted and newly decorated. There is a beautiful small dining room area... perfect for a nice dinner. There are many comfortable places to sit and relax throughout the home, which is very comfortable and cheery. We offer big closets in the bedrooms and dressers for all of your storage needs. There is a breakfast nook and also a beautiful, small dining area.
The other feature about this house that we must mention is that no matter which window or door you are looking out of, the view is gorgeous. Our lot is a corner lot, so the views feel very open as is the 'tropical nature' around our home. Here, you will find locals walking, running, or biking in our pedestrian friendly neighborhood.
There are even 3 neighborhood parks - all within a few blocks of our home. 2 are directly on the waters of Lyons Bay for your fishing pleasure. THE CLOSEST BEING ONLY STEPS FROM OUR FRONT DOOR!
The historical downtown Venice is only two miles south and provides quaint antique shops. Siesta Key and the Village is only 25 minutes north, as is Sarasota's Main Street which features many restaurants and shops. Visit St Armands Circle, 35 minutes north for more great shopping and restaurants! Disney World and all of the other Orlando attractions are just 2 hours away!
One more reason why you will want to come to Nokomis is that every WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY night on the beach is 'drums by the sunset' which you have to experience in order to appreciate the beauty of it. Anyone who has a drum... any kind of drum... will bring it to the beach where a big group of local drummers drum their drums until the sun sets (starting an hour before sundown).
There you will find locals and tourists alike dining in the sand, playing in the sand and dancing in the sand. I'll never forget the first time we witnessed it. We were mesmerized! There were families with blankets all over the beach, kids playing, honeymooners enjoying the romantic mood, people with lightweight plastic tables and chairs made up to look ELEGANT with beautiful tablecloths and linen napkins, etc, champagne on ice, wine, fruit and cheese platters, and anything else you could IMAGINE to bring in a picnic basket or cooler.
All of that coupled with the great SUNSET and the beat of the drums is an amazing experience...
We look forward to serving you in any way we can and if you have ANY additional questions, just call Steve right now!

Why the Owner Chose Nokomis, FL, USA:
Nokomis/Casey Key - with its building height restrictions - is an 'old Florida' oasis in a state abounding with high rise beach-front condominiums. Here you will find miles long pristine white sandy beaches that suits both the family atmosphere, and also more secluded spots for those seeking out the private, romantic getaway.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk or ride bikes on a peninsula with an eclectic mix of multi-million dollar homes, the more modest single family homes, dotted with 1920's era Spanish style homes. Or launch kayaks at the neighborhood park only 2 homes away.
