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.

Nancy Eaton purchased this cottage in 1997

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!

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!

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.

A TASTE OF OLD FLORIDA

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed 2 weeks in historic Casa Nokomis and could not have asked for better accomodations. The cottage extremely clean,and is beautifully decorated with antiques as well as modern furnishings including a very comfortable bed. The kitchen is a gourmet's delight, with every conceivable cooking gadget, high end pots and pans, beautiful dishes and glassware. We cooked most of our meals in the cottage and used the outdoor gas grill a lot. The only thing missing is a dishwasher, but if you have a partner, doing dishes together is part of the fun of getting away from home. Do not miss buying fresh seafood at Captain Eddy's around the corner. The yard is beautifully landscaped and relaxing. Nokomis is a great area with easy access to shopping and activities like the beach, fishing, and biking the Legacy Trail. Nancy is a wonderful manager and hostess; helpful, responsive, and kind. She even gave my husband ukelele lesson. I highly recommend Casa Nokomis and hope to return.

COTTAGE NEAR BEACH, LEGACY TRAIL, VENICE

  • 5 of 5
Accomodations at Vacation Rental 253504 were beyond anything we expected. From the Egret on the front door to the parrot tile in the bathroom, everything had an old Florida flavor extraordinaire.
We spent 4 weeks in "the cottage" and I don't think there was a day I didn't discover something new to amaze me. Everything you could possibly need was in the cupboards or drawers. It was as though the owner had gone through her home and duplicated everything. The dishes and silver ware continued with the Florida theme. Everything looked as though the owner spent a fortune on decorating the home.
There were 3 changes of sheets and plenty of towels and wash cloths, all high quality. The bed was comfortable and above all - the entire house was VERY, VERY clean.
Landscaping was beautiful, especially the 40' wall of Bougainvillea in full bloom. The patio was landscaped so everywhere you looked you saw more flowers and blooming trees. It was a perfect place to sit and enjoy the sun and read a book.
The owner is extremely friendly and a joy to visit with. She is truly talented and all her properties show pride of ownership. We spent several evenings visiting with her on the patio, but she is most respectful of your privacy and would not have stopped had we not invited her. She was very helpful when we asked about locations of golf courses, pet stores, etc.
Our dog was welcomed and spoiled. There is a great park half a block away to walk dogs.
I would give this property 6 out of 5 stars and the owner a 10. We have already reserved for next year. This is definitely a property you don't want to pass up.

VENICE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Nokomis. The cottage was very clean, well maintained and perfect for two people. We were greeted upon our arrival by Nancy, the owner of the cottage who helped orient us to the area and gave us some great suggestions for dinner. (Try the Curry Creek Cafe. Fantastic food!) The bottle of wine she gave us was wonderful and a very nice added touch, too! It was just a short drive to both the Venice and Nokomis beaches, as well as the shopping area of downtown Venice. Plus, Oscar Scherer State park was just a couple miles up the road for some interesting hiking. All in all, we were very happy with our accommodations and would definitely stay here again if vacationing in the area.

CASA NOKOMIS - LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a delightful little cottage - 5 stars!! We stayed here for two weeks and loved every minute of our stay. It is really quiet, clean, nicely decorated in old style Florida furnishings, nice quality bedding, sheets and towels (which I am very particular about!), Nice modern kitchen and beautifully tiled bath.

Location is ideal - close to Nokomis beach - great for picking up shells; check out downtown Venice - go to TJ Carneys on Thursday night for the live Dixieland music; visit Myakka State Park – beautiful, one of Florida's oldest and largest state parks. There are lots of restaurants in the area: love Pops Sunset Grill on Casey Key - excellent grouper ruben and the Casey Key Fish House- order the specials on the board are the best bet and nice tiki bar. Only restaurant I will never go to again was Nokomis Breakfast House- way, way over priced for just two eggs and potatoes - not good.

It was also an easy drive to Sarasota to check out all the second hand and antique shops. This was the first time I had rented a property and it was a great experience.

The owner was very gracious and responded quickly to email. You can tell she takes pride in maintaining a beautiful historic property and helping you have the best experience possible. I am looking forward to coming back again next Christmas.

THE LOVELY CASA NOKOMIS

  • 5 of 5
I spent two summer months in this charming, romantic cottage in the historic district of Nokomis. The decor is fabulous - hip old florida style. It was very clean and well maintained. The owner is so friendly and informative. She has a ukelele available for guests to play and will give a lesson as she plays very well herself. It was comfortable and had amenities such as wifi and apple tv. The yard is garden style and there are lovely details such as a pretty little fountain and a love seat swing. Also has a place to grill out - which is great with the fantastic weather. There are nice shops nearby and Captain Eddy's (walking distance) is a fun Florida restaurant with excellent food. Casa Nokomis is not far from the beaches with the warm Gulf water. Lots of shops and attractions nearby. An absolutely wonderful place to stay.
