Just ask life's bartender for the "Nokomis special"

Kick off your shoes, weary traveler, because you've reached the end of the road, and a Nokomis Beach vacation rental is what you've been thirsting for. Take a big measure of wide, sandy beach, shake it up with a dash of small-town charm, and add a little twist of Florida chic to serve up the dreamiest vacation cocktail imaginable. Set along Casey Key, Nokomis beach is never crowded, and the lack of development, coupled with the sheer length of the beach, means there's a sense of space that you just don't get that often in this part of Florida.

I hear the sound of drums beating

A Nokomis Beach vacation rental is about one thing. The beach life. Twice a week, round sunset, there's a drum circle on Nokomis Beach, where drummers turn up from far and wide and there's a cool, kind of carnival atmosphere. At the south end of Nokomis Beach you'll find North Jetty Park and Fish Camp, where the boaties and fishermen tend to congregate. Depending on your preferences, that might be you. There are a few drinking and eating options on Casey Key itself, but take a short trip into Nokomis proper for wider shopping and dining possibilities.

Venice Beach? What Venice Beach?

It might feel a world away from the big city, but your Nokomis Beach vacation rental is actually only a few miles north of Venice. While you're unlikely to want to leave your beach for theirs, Venice has plenty of other charms to tempt you down the road. It's got a wide array of historic districts and buildings, plus museums, a theater, and its own symphony orchestra to keep the culture vultures happy. And if that's not enough, head north to the cultural capital of Sarasota, with festivals galore, plus botanical gardens and an aquarium.

Bucking the trend at Nokomis Beach

The Florida stereotype is a wet, hot season from June to September, and a dry, warm season for the rest of the year. Actually in Nokomis there's a fairly consistent amount of precipitation year-round, but the main difference is that during the 'dry' season, the rain is light and occasional, while in the 'wet' season it likes to pack it into one massive deluge each day. The faucet is either on or off. The important thing is those lovely warm temperatures. It might freeze in the middle of the night literally once a year. Just imagine that.

Are you a pelican or a pelican't?

Your Nokomis Beach vacation rental is set on the barrier island of Casey Key on Florida's Gulf Coast, just north of Venice Beach and 20 miles south of Sarasota. Regular visitors are the pelicans, and of course, the dolphins. We've all seen Flipper. Sunsets on Nokomis Beach are pretty special, and you'll find plenty of locals rocking up with wine and beach chairs to take it in, particularly if it's a night when the drummers are playing. A curiosity of nearby Venice Beach is the large numbers of fossilized shark teeth that wash up on the beach.
