Nokomis house description

Only a minute from beautiful Nokomis Beach and Casey Key, Cuz's Cottage is designed with absolute comfort and style in mind. The perfect winter or summer getaway location, within a mile of the beach, boat ramp and water activities at Casey Key. Nokomis Beach is untouched, with full public access and free parking. Three miles to Venice Island and five miles to the Brohard Paw Park/Beach ('Dog lovers have declared this park and beach to be the best dog friendly park in the state.')

The house has 3 double bedrooms (2 Queen + 1 King) completely furnished with cotton bed linens, comforter and storage for your belongings. Two full bathrooms come with cotton towels. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, gas range, dishwasher, pots & pans, crockery, glassware, coffee maker, and blender. The living room and master bedroom have HD televisions with cable and free WiFi internet access. The outdoor patio has a gas grill, outdoor table, umbrella and seating area. The surrounding gardens are landscaped and decorated for a serene outdoor experience.

The house is within easy access to 3 major airports (Sarasota, Tampa and Fort Myers). We are located 15 minutes south of the restaurants, bars and nightlife around Siesta Key and Sarasota. If your not in the mood to drive; bike down to the beach to watch the sunset, dance at the Drum Circle, and stop at "Pop's Sunset Grill" or "Pelican Alley" located on the intercoastal for dinner.

About Jane Folger/Tricia Folger Angelica

Yes, we are cousins! We grew up together and lived less than a mile from one another. After we bought our cottage, we joked 'Now that we co-own property, we are joined for life', which suits us just fine! Our dogs are very important to us, so we understand how special it is to include your fur babies on your vacation or winter get-a-way. Finding a clean, safe and comfortable place to vacation has always been important to us which is why we are thrilled to offer Cuz's Cottage to you!

Jane Folger/Tricia Folger Angelica purchased this house in 2015

Why Jane Folger/Tricia Folger Angelica chose Nokomis

We love all that Florida has to offer especially the spectacular sunsets only you can find on the Gulf Coast. The minute we stepped into this adorable and beautifully appointed house, we just knew this was the one we had been looking tirelessly for. This adorable house is located in a safe and monitored neighborhood within a boating/beach community. Nokomis Beach on Casey Key is less than a mile away ...the stress of life just rolls off your back and you are on vacation.

What makes this house unique

7 ft. high fully fenced private back yard that is brightly lit by a motion sensor light in the evening. One car garage and driveway large enough to accommodate a boat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was everything we had hoped for and then some. Beautifully decorated, immaculate both inside and out. The landscaping is so tasteful without being over the top. We enjoyed the walk to the great Nokomis Beach. If you have not been to the drum circle, put it on your list of things to do. I would recommend this house to all of our friends and family only if we were invited to stay. Thanks to the owners for the warm and inviting home. Hope to be back again in the spring.

Comforting and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting Cuz's Cottage. The owners are easy to contact and are dedicated to providing everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Nice neighborhood, biking distance to Casey Key beach and close to downtown Venice. Interior is well decorated in soothing blue/gray tones and nice linens on beds. It has a side outdoor patio area for grilling with large picnic table and ambiance lighting. We will stay again!

We would highly recommend "Cuz's Cottage". It is a very nice home, very comfortable, in a nice neighborhood, convenient to beaches, shopping, and restaurants. We enjoyed our month-long stay. We also had pleasant contact with the Cuz's themselves! We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: We so enjoyed meeting and having you and your "handy" husband! We strive to keep the property well maintained and that fence gate your husband worked on open/closes like butter now & really adds to it's functionality. We are so happy you enjoyed your Winter get-a-way with us and are welcome back ANYTIME! Wishing you a happy & healthy Spring Summer. Warmest Regards, Jane/Trish

Top notch winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is our winter home away from home. The neighborhood is quiet and walkable and Cuz's Cottage is as comfortable as can be. We've discovered a few more great spots to eat and walk and are looking forward to next year.

Wonderful vacation retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while attending a family reunion for Christmas. It was clean, great location, very comfortable and a nice walk to the beach! We didn't cook while there but the kitchen is well-equipped with coffee maker, tea kettle, plenty of dishes and cookware. The beds were comfortable. The neighborhood is a nice, quiet, residential area. We felt very safe there. Anita's is .3 mile away and was the best breakfast we had during our ten day stay. Wish we could go back! Would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your family reunion over the holiday and stay at the Cottage. We agree, safety first and being in a monitored neighborhood lends to that. Plus our neighbors are great! Thank you for breakfast referral "Anita's" we have not had the opportunity to try ourselves but have included in our "to do" list. I'm sure future visitors will find your recommendation helpful. Thank you for taking such good care of the cottage. We look forward to your next stay.
