True home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

This pristine house is the perfect base to explore the Nokomis area. Tom made it more comfortable with thoughtful touches like night lights and cuddle blankets. Great value for the money.

Beautiful and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The house was so clean. It was the perfect size for our stay. The pictures don't portray how nice and open the house really is. The neighborhood was calm and friendly also.

You're not the first to be pleasantly surprised that the house is even nicer in person than the pictures reflect. VRBO recently increased the number of pictures that can be posted. I'll soon post more, better pictures. Thanks again and you are welcome back anytime! Thanks, Tom

Florida in Nokomis

  • 4 of 5

This pleasant home is in a very nice neighborhood and is convenient to shopping, eating and the beach!

Tom was very helpful in providing us with a hair dryer and a great slow cooker! Thanks Tom.....

The beds were very comfy and there were plenty of linens. Also, there were more than four plates and that was nice to see. We were sorry to leave a couple of weeks early but we may be back!

Owner's Response: I'm very appreciative of the positive review! More importantly, I'm glad you found my vacation home met all your needs. It was a pleasure meeting you - you now have another friend in sunny FLA! I hope my home near the beach will be your first choice for future visits. You are always invited! Thank you!

Nice, clean, roomy house in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I was pleased that this house met and exceeded the photos posted online. The color choices in the rooms and tasteful decorations said "Florida Vacation" to me. The furniture was very comfortable. Being in a quiet neighborhood appealed to me, yet we were only a 4 mile drive to the Nokomis Beach and to I-75 in the opposite direction. The owner was attentive to any problems that arose, such as music channels on TV, WiFi and the washing machine. All these were new, as we were the first renters, and the owner came and took care of them.
