About John Ehlen

After a sailing vacation my wife and I took in the southwest Florida coastal area, my brother and I decided it was time to find a place in southwest Florida. We looked from Fort Myers to Sarasota and fell in love with the laid back feel of Nokomis/Venice area and all it has to offer.

John Ehlen purchased this villa in 2011

Why John Ehlen chose Nokomis

We settled on our property because of it proximity to the beach and the inter-coastal waterway. The white sand beach is a great place to spend time. There are many great eateries just a short walk or drive away.

What makes this villa unique

Less than a mile away is Nokomis beach. The great family friendly atmosphere and white sand beach has easy access and parking. Kayak rentals and fishing charter services are nearby and offer great opportunities to enjoy what the innercoastal and gulf waters have to offer. Pelican Alley and Pop's Sunset Grill are within walking distance and Nokomos Sunset Hut and Briandi's are short ride. Also visit Captain Eddie's for dining in or check out their fresh seafood market and bring something home to enjoy on the grill.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The property is not only as described, but better. Location is excellent--quite close to Nokomis beach along with Venice and the Laurel area, and South Sarasota can be reached in 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. Neighborhood is residential and nice. The property is a duplex with living room, two bedrooms, bath, kitchen, utility room (with washer/dryer) and garage, along with a small patio in back. The white picnic bench in the photos is in front and is located in nice shade in the afternoon/evening.

The two best features are all the extras found in the place and the owners. By extras, I mean plenty of towels, and a kitchen filled with everything from cooking gear to baggies and aluminium foil and spices. And the garage has a lot of sea toys too. Internet is cable and seemed stable--measured at about 22 Mbps down and 10 down via wireless.

The owners are very nice and communicative--emails and texting answered promptly. But more importantly, they are just nice people--awake and aware and a pleasure to meet. I hope to be back soon.

Owner's Response: Benoit is familar with the area, as he has close friends that live nearby. We know there are lots of choices on VRBO for our area, and were happy to have him choose our place for his stay. It was nice to see that he found our place comfortable and it was a pleasure to get to know him during his visit. Hosting on VRBO has become an enjoyable part of our lives and we look forward to hosting and meeting more great people along the way.

The perfect vacation at an amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 8 days and we really love it, the house have everything that you need, it was very clean, and was perfectly located. The beach is about 5 minutes away driving and the Neighbordhood is very quiet.

The owners were very friendly and helpful.

We will definitely rent it again

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Friendly, sweet people. Cannot go wrong booking this place. Off the main drag so no traffic noise. Right down the street from the beach...chairs, umbrella, board, and noodles included. Included grill, coffee, beach towels and so much more. Just like being at home. It was wonderful!!

Everything you need in modest size home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 loved this house. It had everything you could possibly need, even sesame Street Band-Aids in the closet! The beaches, just a couple minutes drive or bike ride away, were breath taking. We went closer to the jetty were it wasn't as crowded.

The beds were comfortable, very very clean place, plenty of towels, and a fully stocked kitchen including Ziploc bags. Wow. Even beach chairs, umbrella, and boogie boards in the garage.

Our stay was better than I could have hoped. The house was lovely! It was clean and stocked with everything we needed for a fun beach vacation. The owners were super friendly and welcoming. We were close to beaches and the beautiful intercoastal. We had an excellent time and will definitely be renting again next year.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place for 2 adults or small family (only 1.5 baths).....very comfy....extremely well stocked kitchen..great bbq gasgrill...good quality beach chairs, etc. for guest use. .great convenience in having a washer/dryer......very cooperative and friendly owners.....location also very good...we rented bikes at Venice bikes & trikes (they deliver)...and cruised up and down Casey Key or the nearby Legacy trail every day...beautiful Casey Key beach 3-5 min. away by car...downtown Venice max 10 minutes.....the only real room for improvement for us is to spruce up the outside sitting experience a little with some plants or fence toward the next door property (not ajacent unit)and street...a little more green would be nice

A short walk to the white sand beach or waterfront restaurants. A boat launch on the inter-coastal is less than a mile away. Only 4 miles to Venice Isle. Check out the farmers market in downtown Venice on Saturday. Siesta Key Beach and Sarasota are only 20 min. north.
