When booking this home for our trip, I literally wanted to be ON the beach. This place was exactly what I was looking for. Not even a 1 minute walk to the beach. Lots of shells, warm clear water, and a secluded area. We were able to watch a rocket launch from the spiral stairs in the middle of the night, gaze at the stars on the beach at night, and watch the turtles nest. This BnB is a quick drive to Venice for shopping and Manisota beach for Shark teeth hunting. Will definitely be back to Nokomis for another trip.
