About Thomas K

We live and work hard in Florida, but wanted to be closer to the beach to fully experience this sun and sand paradise.

Thomas K purchased this house in 2013

Why Thomas K chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

First, we fell in love with Nokomis Beach. Then, we realized a slice of ownership in this sunshine paradise was possible. Now, we want to share with all of our family, old and new friends alike!!!

What makes this house unique

Clean comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in January 2017. The house is as described. Beds were comfortable. Everything needed for meal preparation was provided. The property was within walking distance of Nokomis Beach and a number of restaurants. We enjoyed walking our dog around the quiet neighborhood. Tom was readily available for questions. We had a great stay.

Perfect get away cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We are from Texas and love to vacation in Florida. We have stayed in this cottage twice now and find it the perfect place. It's always extremely clean, reasonably priced, and has everything we need for a week or just a few days. Just a few miles from the historic district, great places to eat, and one mile to Nokomis Beach where you will see the most beautiful sunsets ever!

Perfect Nokomis Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The rental in Nokomis was perfect for us. We love walking and were just a 20 min. walk to beach. The house was clean and provided everything we needed. Our Black Lab was also welcome and enjoyed his stay. We would recommend this rental to our friends.

Nice Nokomis Home

  • 4 of 5

Home was clean with a fully equipped kitchen. Back yard provided a nice, private spot to relax in the evenings, complete with a firepit. Convenient to Spanish Point, where the wedding we were in town for was held.

Fantastic customer service!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many condos and houses over the years but never have we felt so taken care of as this time. Thomas was a wonderful host, checking in with us before we arrived and quick to respond to questions during our stay. His house was so clean and decorated perfectly. It's only a mile or so to the most beautiful beach sunset I've ever seen. Also, the beaches are world renown for shark teeth collecting. I highly recommend this house!

This is where you want to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My mom has always wanted to visit this part of Florida, so my husband, toddler, and I took her. With a toddler and my mom in tow, we wanted separate sleeping areas, but didn't want to pay for a hotel. Plus, anyone that has ever stayed in a hotel with a toddler knows you have 2 options: go to bed early when the toddler does, or else sit in the dark. We were able to get him down for the night and enjoy tv in the other rooms. This rental was perfect for us!

We appreciate being able to cook our own food on vacation due to food issues with the toddler. This kitchen was well appointed for all of our needs and my husband was happy to find propane in the grill and made our dinner most nights.

The linens in the bathrooms and bedrooms were fresh and fluffy. (Including towels for the beach!) The washer and dryer were both used and in great condition. The decorations were bright and cheery.

Our toddler enjoyed the native lizards everywhere, the sand toys, and the ability to play at the beach everyday. We also took easy day trips to see the Minnesota Twins' spring training facility, the Mote Marine Laboratory and aquarium, Sanibel Island, and to the outlet malls for shopping.

We prefer to be away from big cities on vacation and this location was perfect for our needs. Easy highway access, but not in a busy area. We found everything we needed nearby including pharmacy, grocery stores, etc.

The rental owner was quick to respond to all of our questions, and our damage deposit was refunded quickly.

Our favorite night was Saturday night at Nokomis Beach. Go watch a very fun group of people with drums "drum down the sun" at sunset on Saturday nights. Lots of dancing too!

We hope to visit again! If you are still wondering about this rental, I'm not sure why. Book it!
