About the property

Waterfront home plus apartment - close to beach

Enjoy easy Florida living in this recently renovated 3 bedroom/2 bath private home that includes an additional separate studio apartment with bath, and solar heated pool on Lyons Bay in Nokomis, FL. This home is on a quiet cul de sac on a large private lot, less than 1 mile to Nokomis Beach and Casey Key, and close to Sarasota beaches, numerous golf courses, water sports and attractions. Bring your boat, kayaks or bikes to enjoy this beautiful scenic area by the Gulf of Mexico.

The home sleeps 6-8 in the main house plus 2 in the apartment and is all on one floor (no stairs). The location is ideal - away from the traffic congestion of Sarasota, with great access to I-75 via the Route 681 spur. It is an easy 20 minute drive to Benderson Park for rowing enthusiasts (and near both Sarasota Crew and Scullers training locations), and very close to quaint, downtown Venice, which was recently listed as one of the best seaside towns in the U.S. by Coastal Magazine. Siesta Key beach, which has been consistently rated as one of the top beaches in the world, is a 20 minute drive.

Guests can boat, kayak, paddleboard or fish from the private dock that has a boat lift. 3 kayaks are available for guest use with a signed liability waiver. The Gulf of Mexico and Intracoastal are both readily accessible by water with no bridges. Nearby golf courses include Calusa Lakes, Jacaranda West, Bobby Jones, Boca Royale, Capri Isles, Sarasota National, Heron Creek, Lakewood National, Village Green, and many others. The area has many nice biking routes and trails.

This home has just been totally redesigned and renovated by an internationally recognized architect. It features a large open space kitchen/family room with new granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, refrigerator, free standing ice-maker, and Keurig coffee maker. The floors are polished terrazzo marble throughout and there are options for both inside and outside dining. All finishes are high quality and the home is well equipped and spotless.

The spacious bedrooms include a master with king bed, en-suite bath with both shower and tub, and sliding doors to the lanai and water views. The second bedroom has a queen bed and sliding doors to the lanai with water views. A third bedroom has 2 twin beds and a sofa bed. The studio apartment has a separate entrance and private screened lanai with water views, a queen bed, en-suite bath, and kitchenette, and is ideal for in-laws, nannies, multi-family renters, or guests.

A full size washer/dryer and full size freezer are conveniently located in the attached 2-car garage and available to both the house and apartment. There is plenty of parking space in the garage and driveway.

The home is completely furnished with all new furniture, new mattresses, 60" high-definition smart TV, and many amenities, including WiFi. Guests can enjoy the solar-heated pool and dine on the screened lanai while watching the beautiful sunsets over the bay. A gas grill is also available. This home is well stocked and very comfortable for families, multi-families or as a corporate rental.

This location is easily accessible to Sarasota airport (35 min drive), Tampa (1 hr. 10 min), or Ft. Myers/Southwest Regional (1 hr. 10 min) airports. Orlando attractions are an easy 2 hour drive away.

Come enjoy this beautiful home for your next Florida experience.

Pets will be considered with a description and pet deposit. Smoking is allowed in outdoor areas only.

Why Lisa Matthews chose Nokomis

Mr. & Ms. Bob Brown were our friends and neighbors and owned this home since the 1970s. Bob passed away in 1996 and due to Ms. Brown's heath and age, she moved to NJ with her family. We purchased their home and lovingly renovated it. It means a lot of us to share this beautiful home on the water with families and those who love the sun and water and who want to spend quality time at this home, which we have named Brown's Landing.

What makes this house unique

Owners live next door and can answer questions and help with advice on local attractions, restaurants, etc.

Our multi-generation family loved our stay. It was very relaxing and fun. Everyone was happy, and we all thought that the oversized showers were terrific. Thanks, Lisa.

Perfect for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Every two years, we find a different Florida beach community to visit for spring break where we can take our three kids under 6 and meet up with members of our family who live along the east coast. This house was perfect for our family of 5, my sister and her son, and my parents. Having the separate apartment for my parents allowed them to spend time with their grandkids but also enjoy a little peace and quiet after a long day of playing in the pool or at the beach. The house was very well taken care of and had everything we needed. Being in a quiet neighborhood off the beaten path was also a plus. We visited several beaches in the Sarasota area while in town, and Nokomis beach was the closest and our favorite. Perfect for the kids to play in the water and on the sand, hunt for shark teeth, and wear themselves out. Grocery stores close by and exploring the channels by kayak was also a plus. We would definitely visit again and stay in the same house!
