What a wonderful location. Our two favorite place were Pops and the North Jetty Fish Camp. We had a great time - so close. Great. Clean. Convenient. We will be back.
This was our first visit to this area. The house was very clean, comfortable beds (very important). Great location.
Greg, the owner, greeted us and was very helpful. Unfortunately, the day we arrived, red tide had hit the beaches. Greg gave us information on other beaches we might try, which was very helpful. He also gave us suggestions for restaurants, which were all good. The book he has prepared is very helpful for first time visitors to the area. We would also highly recommend Anita's for breakfast. Clean, comfortable, good food.
We went to the Peace River Wildlife Center in Punta Gorda. It is a small rescue center. We were lucky to meet their star resident, Luna, the owl.
It was a great ride and enjoyed seeing the work they do at the center.
If we are lucky enough to go back to the Venice/Nokomis area, we will definitely stay here again.
Thank you, Greg.
The owner Greg was there to greet me and had the lawn freshly mowed. Everything I needed was there. Shopping, the beach, restaurants all close by. Stayed here many times...never disappointed. Nice area felt safe being a single lady staying alone. Thanks Greg
Very close to the beach, nice amount of room for 3 to 5 people, our dog was very happy & so were we!
The house was very cozy and clean! Its centrally located to so many wonderful beaches and attractions! It had everything we needed and we can't wait to return very soon! The area is absolutely beautiful! Thanks Greg and Deanne!
We stayed the last week of September and the weather was great. We would recommend Seahorse Shores to anyone. The location is perfect, only a short way to the beautiful Nokomis Beach. There were beach chairs, sand toys and bikes in the garage. This area is a great place to ride bikes. We took the bikes to Legacy Trail for a ride and it was really nice. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, all the comforts of home. The neighborhood is quiet, yet walking distance to a bait shop, ice cream shop and a convenience store. We rode bikes to the beach and around the neighborhood. We hope to come back next year for another wonderful vacation.
At Nokomis Beach, Drum Circle on Wednesday and Saturday Evening.
At Venice Beach, Swimming, shelling, Scuba Diving, Sharks Tooth collecting, In local area, Sarasota Jungle Gardens, Selby Gardens, Sarasota Bay Cruises, Greyhound Racing
