About John Ehlen

After a sailing vacation my wife and I took in the southwest Florida coastal area, my brother and I decided it was time to find a place in southwest Florida. We looked from Fort Myers to Sarasota and fell in love with the laid back feel of Nokomis/Venice area and all it has to offer.

John Ehlen purchased this villa in 2011

Why John Ehlen chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We settled on our property because of it proximity to the beach and the inter-coastal waterway. The white sand beach is a great place to spend time. There are many great eateries just a short walk or drive away.

What makes this villa unique

Less than a mile away is Nokomis beach. The great family friendly atmosphere and white sand beach has easy access and parking. Kayak rentals and fishing charter services are nearby and offer great opportunities to enjoy what the innercoastal and gulf waters have to offer. Pelican Alley and Pop's Sunset Grill are within walking distance and Nokomos Sunset Hut and Briandi's are short ride. Also visit Captain Eddie's for dining in or check out their fresh seafood market and bring something home to enjoy on the grill.

Off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Walk to beach and some great fun restaurants! Away from the tourists. Quiet clean accommodations. Close to some great side trips. Sanabel island. A manatee reserve. Siesta Key. It's perfect. Beach is beautiful. Close to canal. We rented a boat and had a fantastic time being in the water. It's all there. And the owners are charming and accommodating. I will definitely return!

Great Stay in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a surprisingly wonderful week in Nokomis! Not being familiar with this area before the trip, we were not sure what to expect. There were five of us who stayed in the unit and there was still plenty of room. Upon arrival, it was very clean and besides food, other essentials were provided, even laundry detergent! We used what was in the unit and left behind the few things that we bought as well throughout our stay. It was great!

The area was also fantastic! The beach is within walking distance and the Gulf is very clean and enjoyable for swimming. We also explored Venice, Sarasota (the Mote aquarium was a hit with my three daughters), Anna Maria Island and Sanibel Island (a little further drive) for day trips. While you would definitely not have to leave the area at all, we enjoyed exploring different places. We will definitely rent this unit again and return to the area as we did not get to do everything we wanted to in one week! One person on Sanibel also recommended Caspersen Beach (located nearby) as a great place to find prehistoric sharks' teeth!

It was a memorable stay and the owner was extremely helpful in communicating with us before we left, while we were there and after our return to make sure our trip went well. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend a stay here!

Delightful accomodation in a slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a very happy month in our unit, the other half of the duplex shown in the cover photo. Everything was As Promised. The 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths were extremely clean and modern. Kitchen and living room upheld the same standard of cleanliness and modernity. I particularly liked that there were plenty of linens, laundry detergent, even spices and sunscreen (which we replaced or added to). In the clean garage were 4 beach chairs two beach umbrellas, and beach bags, plus a fine new Weber gas grill. You could fly here (rather than drive) and be very well set-up.

The owner is wonderful to deal with and easy to reach by text, email, or phone. As he said in his remarks, we're less than a mile walk to the beautiful Casey Key beach, and going the other direction, within walking distance to a great ice cream stand, several restaurants, a Publix supermarket and CVS. Venice and Sarasota are easy drives. We enjoyed morning walks over the drawbridge to watch the fishermen and the twice weekly sundown drum circles on the beach. Life is easy here: not fancy, not fast-paced but home-y and refreshing (particularly during our hard winter up North).

We're very happy with our comfortable and affordable stay on Shore Drive!

A short walk to the white sand beach or waterfront restaurants. A boat launch on the inter-coastal is less than a mile away. Only 4 miles to Venice Isle. Check out the farmers market in downtown Venice on Saturday. Siesta Key Beach and Sarasota are only 20 min. north.
