About N. L. Eaton

I am a freelance non-fiction writer, author, guitar and ukulele player, and a big fan of 'Old Florida' experiences and decor. My family and I have owned property in Sarasota County since 1950 and I have lived here in Nokomis year 'round for 15 years.

As an avid historic preservationist and lover of vintage style and culture, I enjoy sharing my experiences and love for 'Old Florida' ambience and local nature and history with my guests, and their enjoyment of my cottages and the area is so rewarding to me.

N. L. Eaton purchased this cottage in 1997

Why N. L. Eaton chose Nokomis

Casa Nokomis is in a charming historic district location with an atmosphere like none other in the area. Thoughtfully furnished and equipped to make your vacation comfortable and character-filled! It's in a fantastic location, within walking distance of antiques shops and restaurants and just a mile from beautiful Nokomis Beach and downtown Venice. You get 'Old Florida' ambience and a relaxing atmosphere.

Accommodations on the island of Venice can be costly and they sell out quickly. It's crowded in high season and Venice landlords can only rent by the month at a minimum. However here at Floridaloha, you can rent by the week or more and get to the island quickly and easily for shopping and dining, yet not have to drive through it to get to points north or south, or get to the Interstate to drive to other parts of the state. Nokomis is a gem, find out for yourself!

What makes this cottage unique

Authentic vintage Florida cottage style, but with modern conveniences and lovely parklike surroundings. A place that will make you smile and will leave you with wonderful memories.

Plus, a ukulele to play during your stay, and a free lesson if you would like one!

From the moment I entered the door I felt "at home". Loved the decor. Continued to find new art in home every time I looked around. Owner was very hospitable ... she gets a 10! Temperature was perfect. Just bring your suitcase and toothbrush as all is provided. Unbelievable! Highly recommend.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

sometimes no need for air-conditioning. Beaches only 2 miles away. Restaurant always have specials; golfing at Venice Lake near airport-$16.00 after noon for golf and cart. October and November are great months to vacation in Fl. The water is still warm and not usually crowded. January and February - no snow but the water is too cold. March is too crowded. Route 41 is a traffic nightmare; restaurants overcrowded, and the beach forget it. If you want a parking spot-get there before 9 am. I have been there in March-got a tan and a headache. Nancy has great properties and October-November are great times to relax. I will be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review, Jerry! You were a wonderful guest. You do describe so well the benefits of being here in October and November. The roads do get crowded now during season but it's a lot better than most other places in Florida, far better than in Sarasota! I look forward to seeing you again in the future as I know you've already booked a return visit!

Great lodging, location, host, Great time

  • 5 of 5

UNFORTUNATELY, I must agree with all of the reviews of this property. Why did I use the word UNFORTUNATELY? Because I don't want any of you snowbirds infringing on my vacation weeks. This in my utopia; my piece of Eden. But, seriously, all of the reviews could not be more accurate about the host, the accommodations, and the location.

I have been vacationing in Nokomis since 2009. I missed 2013 because of work and some minor health related issues. I have stayed with family and friends but like the saying goes: Friends and family sink after three days...throw them out!!!! So this year,in February and knowing that my employment allowed me to vacation in October of 2014, I went on line for studio apartments in Nokomis, Fl for October and lo and behold, the yellow Historic Cottage in Nokomis popped up. Over the years, I have passed this cottage 100 times; my brother lives 1/2 mile away. I contacted Nancy by e-mail and we spoke on the telephone. Subsequently, I e-mailed her by travel dates and I will able to reserve another piece of property listed under Floridaloha.com. The rented the Historic Casa Nokomis. The pictures are more than accurate but in person, the details of this property are astonishing. Several minutes prior to my arrival, I contacted Nancy. She greeted me in the driveway; we walked thru a patio area surrounded by flowers and plants; and I was at my front door in less than fifty feet. The patio was bricked and I saw a glass table with chairs, and an umbrella with LED lights. Nearby I saw a gas grill; Nancy told me that they were available anytime-day or night. I did make use of them. I entered my accommodations;I can not say anything more than what the other reviews have mentions. After settling in, I checked the kitchen- unbelievable- every drawer contained a treasure. Even extra paper towels. The bathroom was large and the closet in the bedroom had a stack of towels and wash clothes as high as a NY skyscraper. Enough about the lodging. Lets talk location and weather. I live in Rhode Island. I don't go to the beach during June, July, or August. Too crowded-traffic back-ups-paying for parking. I go in September. The weather is still in the upper 70's and sometimes into the 80's. No crowds, the boom boxes blaring, no fees for parking. Just warm water and quiet times for reading and tanning. And that's why I go to Nokomis in October and sometimes even into November. The weather is great-mid 80's, no humidity, to be continued

A Cottage Gem

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three weeks at Casa Nokomis. Until we actually saw the cottage, I was apprehensive. It was reasonably priced, we didn't need to rent for a full month, the description sounded wonderful, and the photos were enticing. It sounded like it might be too good to be true (like the apartment we rented a few years earlier in Longboat Key - that apartment sounded wonderful, but turned out to be, at best, tacky and a little short of comfortable).

The reality relieved my apprehensions - Casa Nokomis was cozy, charming, pretty, clean, well kept, very comfortable, and stocked with everything we could want. The garden was beautiful, with palm trees and a tree our host called an orchid tree, which was just what it looked like - a tree covered with beautiful orchid-like blooms. The location was great - quiet, with no traffic noise, and between two bays (you couldn't see them from the cottage, but they were within a ten minute walk). There is a great seafood restaurant, a natural foods restaurant, and an American-Indonesian-eclectic cafe within easy walking distance. There are many more good restaurants within a ten minute drive, and the City of Venice with its enjoyable business district is about a five minute drive. We never did find a good Chinese restaurant or Jewish Deli nearby, but both do exist in Sarasota, about 20 minutes away. Basic shops - pharmacies, Publix Supermarket, hardware store, post office, dry cleaners, etc. are within three miles.

My wife and I have vacationed in Florida, on both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, for about the last ten years. Casa Nokomis is the best place we've ever stayed in. We hope to come back in 2015.
