Recently updated vacation home in Nokomis, FL!

This home is in a desirable, quiet, and conveniently located neighborhood offering relaxing and affordable vacation accommodations. Gorgeous Nokomis Beach with free parking is only 4 miles. Venice is also just 4 miles down the road. Oscar Scherer State Park is "around the corner". You can ride your bike there via a quick route thru the neighborhood. Interstate-75 offers easy access to the north or south.

The home features: 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, kitchen, large living room, open dining room, bonus room with additional dining table plus couch and TV, screened lanai, carport, and utility shed.

The home has been recently painted, newly furnished, and decorated in a tasteful, casual, beach cottage style. The exterior has been freshly painted featuring Caribbean inspired aqua colored accents. The house is on a corner lot with well manicured landscaping. A screened lanai provides a bistro table and seating. There is a utility shed with provided beach chairs, umbrella, and Bocce balls. An inviting tree bench swing offers an ideal spot to read or enjoy morning cofee. There is a brick fire pit to relax by on cool evenings and a high quality Weber BBQ grill for cookouts, perhaps for your own catch-of-the-day! The home has two comfortably sized bedrooms, each with brand new queen beds and flat screen cable HDTVs with DVD players. There are two full bathrooms. One bathroom has a shower/tub, the other features a large, low-step walk-in shower. The living room is large with a microfiber sofa, loveseat, club chair and ottoman, and large, wall-mounted cable HDTV with DVD/BluRay and surround sound system. The dining area is conveniently located next to the kitchen and is open to the living room area. It's typically configured to seat four, but includes two additional table leaves to expand for entertaining up to 8.

The kitchen is well stocked with dinnerware, pots and pans, toaster, coffee maker.

There is a window-filled bonus room filled that features an additional dining/gathering table, leather couch, printer, and flat screen cable HDTV with DVD.

High speed WiFi internet and a color printer/copier/scanner are provided.

Visit nearby Venice, Spanish Point, Sarasota, or the repeat award-winning best beach in America, Siesta Key.

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

Florida in Nokomis

  • 4 of 5

This pleasant home is in a very nice neighborhood and is convenient to shopping, eating and the beach!

Tom was very helpful in providing us with a hair dryer and a great slow cooker! Thanks Tom.....

The beds were very comfy and there were plenty of linens. Also, there were more than four plates and that was nice to see. We were sorry to leave a couple of weeks early but we may be back!
