Great place close to the beach. We loved the outdoor porch with chairs to sit and relax. The beds were comfortable and great shower heads in the bathroom. The outdoor shower was nice to rinse all the sand off before walking into the house. I did notice behind the behind the nightstands was dirty but that's an easy fix. It needs to be sprayed for bugs as well. I would definitely come back with that being said.
Overall impression is that with some care this place could be very nice. It is spacious; bedrooms are large and very comfortable. Our main complaint is the entrance driveway. There are large roots that have raised the asphalt level so high that your car bottoms out. The porch area was very dirty. The inside just needs some caring touches to make it a more pleasant place to stay.
Stayed there for the month of February in 2015. Appreciated being allowed to bring dog and cat. Quiet neighborhood; house clean and spacious. Just a couple of spots from lovely Nokomis Beach, and near parks, nature preserve, and Venice, FL. Excellent golf in the area and nearby Sarasota. Grocery store and lots of restaurants nearby.
I stayed for two weeks with my wife and daughter. The house was very spacious, clean and well furnished. Location is excellent, just 2 minutes from the beach. Also very close to a nice restaurant, grocery store, pharmacy, etc.
Great place for a vacation for the family or a romantic getaway. Condo was very clean, well maintained, and the pictures and description were very accurate. Quiet and simple. Very close to the beautiful beach, although a bit too far to walk with small children. We really enjoyed eating all of our meals on the lanai & because the property is set so far back from the main road, our children could play outside without worry. Close to grocery store, pharmacy, etc.
We definitely recommend this property; we look forward to returning next year!
Things to do:
Nokomis Public Beach from 5pm to sundown: Wednesday and Saturday nights check out the energizing drumming circle/dancing…so much fun!
Bentley's Homemade Ice Cream is delicious and within walking distance.
Snook Haven Restaurant: about 20 min away, rustic but worth the trip!
Casperson Beach: great place to sift the sand and collect shark teeth
