  • 4 of 5

The rental was close to Nokomis beaches and grocery stores. We enjoyed being a guest in Tom's rental. Since we enjoy being on the outside late in the evenings, we wish the grass had been properly maintained and cut, due to mosquitos and bugs being more present without the grass being cut, but was informed the day of leaving Tom had scheduling issues. Some work on the facial boards needs to have some attention. Otherwise the place was very comfortable and relaxing. If available when we need, we would defineltly return.

We loved our stay! And what a great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We visit the Venice/Casey Key area at least once a year. The beaches there are hard to beat. Our stay at Tom's place did not disappoint. The home is situated in a perfect location within a few minutes drive of area beaches. Inside, there are two spacious bedrooms and an additional sun room with a daybed that can be used for additional sleeping. There are also two bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen and adjoining dining room and living room. The home was immaculately clean and extra comfortable and really was a great Home Away from Home! I would not hesitate recommending Tom's vacation home to friends and family! We will definitely stay there again when we visit!

True home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

This pristine house is the perfect base to explore the Nokomis area. Tom made it more comfortable with thoughtful touches like night lights and cuddle blankets. Great value for the money.

Beautiful and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The house was so clean. It was the perfect size for our stay. The pictures don't portray how nice and open the house really is. The neighborhood was calm and friendly also.

Owner's Response: Joy, I appreciate the favorable review! I'm glad my home proved comfortable and suitable for your family visit. You're not the first to be pleasantly surprised that the house is even nicer in person than the pictures reflect. VRBO recently increased the number of pictures that can be posted. I'll soon post more, better pictures. Thanks again and you are welcome back anytime! Thanks, Tom
