traveler reviews for this nokomis house rental

Comfortable and Close to Beach!

Review submitted: December 7, 2012   Date of arrival: June 2, 2012

We were very impressed with the vacation home. It is close to a Publix and many dining options. The beach literally is less than 5 minutes away with no traffic. We were able to see dolphins swimming in the ocean just by sitting on the beach. Close by in Venice is Brohard Park where your dog cn take a dip in the ocean. It was wonderful to head to the beach and return to such a calm and comfy home. It has everything that you could ever want and if you forget your beach chair there are several in the garage, the owners thought of everything. I had never been to Nokomis before but this was one of the best beach experiences ever and I must say where we stayed definitely contributed to it. Thanks for sharing your home with us and our sweet pup! We loved it!

Very comfortable, convenient, quiet, relaxing.

Review submitted: August 3, 2012   Date of arrival: July 22, 2012

We had a very nice stay at Seahorse Shore. We visited family in the area and enjoyed being close to Nokomis Beach. It was very hot so the location was great for jumping in the car for a quick dip in the surf. Greg had beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach toys for the grandkids. Everything was in working order especially the air conditioner. Bicycles in the garage, it was too hot so we didn't use them. George the big white heron came to visit us every day. I didn't have hot dogs but he liked ham if you break it into strips. We were within walking distance 1/2 mile to the beach. The neighborhood is very friendly. Greg provided toliet paper, dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, plenty of towels. some cleaning products. WiFi. Cable TV. We wanted to extend our stay for 2 days and Greg was very accommodating and helpful. I have recommended Seahorse Shore to other people and just hope they don't make a reservation when I want to go back.
