Located at 409 Shore Road, Nokomis, FL 34275, we have been proudly serving guests since 2003. Our guests return again and again to enjoy our clean, quiet, safe and comfortable accommodations in a great residential beach neighborhood. This charming villa is located in our Seahorse Shores duplex and is thoughtfully outfitted for your maximum vacation enjoyment. The unit is tastefully appointed, non-smoking, and has two bedrooms, one bath, living/dining area, kitchen and a spacious, sunny Florida room. Your villa is just a half mile walk by sidewalk from your front door to Nokomis Beach.

Enjoy one of the Best Beaches in Florida!: Nokomis Beach is thought by many to be the best beach in Florida. Nokomis Beach is located on the barrier island of Casey Key. Casey Key is 'old Florida' in all the best sense. There are no highrises or condos on Casey Key, and no large hotels. A few 1950's motels still remain on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico but the rest of Casey Key is home to beautiful beach front homes. The author Steven King has a home here. Casey Key has the highest concentration of nesting sea turtles anyplace on Gulf of Mexico in the U.S. From May to October the lights are kept from shining on the beach so the hatchlings can safely make their way to the water. The residents of Casey Key value their pristine paradise and it is only a 1/2 mile walk from your villa at Seahorse Shores. The local beaches thoughtfully provide outdoor showers to rinse the sand and salt off. For the more adventurous, Venice offers the best fossil shark tooth diving in the world. Some of our guests have become Scuba certified here.

Great things to do!: Nokomis Beach is 1/2 mile away! We provide a great guest binder in the villa with information about these activities and others and with menus

from the great

local restaurants. Unique and fun things to do in this tropical vacation paradise: Visit the world famous Venice Audubon Rookery where herons, egrets and other birds nest. 8 miles away,

free. Peak Season is Winter/Spring. Scuba Dive off of Venice Beach for fossil sharks' teeth including huge Megalodon teeth and other fossils. You

can go right in from the shore. 4 miles away. Or go out on a Florida West Scuba School charter boat that will

put you right on the best spots. You can also get quickly certified and do your training dives right from the

beach where the sharks' teeth are. Visibility is best in April, May & June but divers go year round. Great Fishing and Golfing is plentiful and well known to those who enjoy those sports. The Venice Jetty Fish Camp (1.5 miles away) sells live bait shrimp before dawn.

More Great things to do!: Enjoy the drum circles at Nokomis Beach every Wednesday and Saturday 1 hour before Sunset. Go Kayaking with any of several local outfitters. Take a tour, a class, rent a kayak or go to a free kayak demo to try paddling many models for free. You can also rent kayaks and canoes at Myakka River State Park and canoes at Oscar Scherer State Park. Visit Myakka River State Park and walk thru the tree tops on one of the world's few canopy walks. They also have tours on the world's largest airboat for up close views of alligators and other wildlife (airboat tour is $10) 20 miles away. Admission to the State Park is $5 per carload. Ride a bicycle or walk along our newly completed trails: the Venetian Waterway Park in Venice (10 miles of paved trail along both sides of the intercoastal waterway) and the 12 Mile Legacy Trail from Venice to Sarasota. A trailhead is less than 2 miles away. Take a unique 90 minute tour of Venice waterways and streets in 'Just Ducky', an amphibious vehicle.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came to Florida for a wedding, and staying at the Nelson's house was cheaper than staying in a hotel for a week. The house was clean, and perfect for what we needed for the week.

The house was within walking distance to the beach, which was great for our vacation.

We would gladly stay here again!

Very clean, and just big enough for our needs. We liked the location - near any grocery stores, but just a few short minutes to the beautiful Nokomis beach!

Clean and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

We found the house to be as advertised. It was very clean and well kept. The neighborhood was quiet and pleasant for taking walks. The owner Greg thought of everything including beach equipment and bicycles. We enjoyed daily trips to the beach and found many local restaurants for dinner. I would readily recommend this property to friends and family.

Was exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I stayed here in June of 2011. It was wonderful! Clean and well maintained. Very close to the beach, and having the bikes available for our use made it seem even closer. Once we arrived we never NEEDED to use our car, as we walked/biked everywhere. A grocery store is close enough to grab a few things and put them in the bike's basket. There is a lovely bike trail nearby that we used often. The owners provided everything we needed from beach towels, gas grill, corkscrews, laundry detergent... Before sending the rental agreement, Greg went out of his way to make sure we understood the property details, pointing out that the duplex wasn't ON the beach, etc. Thanks to his great descriptions there were NO surprises - the property was exactly as I expected, if not better. I'm definitely interested in staying there again and I will recommend this property to friends and family. Thank you very much.
