Location Description

Less than a mile to Nokomis beach, located on Casey Key, is a rare find; beautiful and quiet, yet has showers and bath house close to beach. This beach is great for walking, shelling on the 9 mile long white sand beach or enjoying the 'bongos every Wednesday and Saturday evening at sunset. There are 2 waterfront seafood dining and drinks near the quaint draw bridge that overlooks the Inter-coastal Waterway. Convenient to groceries, pharmacy, shops, and post office.

The quaint town of Venice on Venice Island is just 4 miles (5 minutes) south of us, with lots of restaurants and shopping. Siesta Key, in Sarasota, is a 15-20 minute drive and we are just a hour drive from Tampa airport. Want to take a day trip to Disney World in Orlando? It is just a 2 hour drive.

The clear aqua blue water of Nokomis Beach and Casey Key stretches out on a shelf into the Gulf of Mexico, inviting long, easy walks into the water before you stretch out for a swim. The extraordinary, bright white sand is almost completely quartz crystal. As such, it maintains a constant cool temperature and is the softest powder imaginable.There is public parking, picnic areas and restrooms. The gulf water is very clear and the sand is fine. If you look for sharks teeth on this beach, chances are that you will find some.

An Ecoturism Paradise
Just 1.25 miles to the clean white sands of Nokomis beach, so load the car up with our snorkels, beach chairs and cooler and make a day of it, walking the sands and sea oats of Casey Key, or stroll to the Venice Jetty to people-watch and check out the fishing. We have several other fabulous beaches nearby, as well.

Nokomis Beach and Park is comprised of 22 acres with 1,700 feet running alongside the Gulf of Mexico, and 3,200 feet along the Intra-coastal Waterway. This area is known for its stunning white sand beaches that are ideal for shelling and beach combing. All types of other beach activities are available such as swimming, diving, fishing and boating. Nokomis Beach has lifeguards, free parking, concessions, restrooms and picnic tables. It is Sarasota County’s oldest public beach and is located on Casey Key just west of the Albee Road Bridge.

Nokomis Beach is one of the most pristine and untouched beaches in the area, and fronts both the Gulf of Mexico and the Intra-coastal Waterway. Stroll the boardwalks for fabulous views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Gopher tortoises (a threatened species) live in the adjacent beach dunes and sea turtles nest on the beach every summer. An active community drum circle takes place on the beach on weekend evenings. There is a canoe/kayak launch and plenty of paddling trails in nearby Dona and Roberts Bays. Popular fishing areas are along the bulkhead on the bay side, and there is a convenient bait shop nearby.

Take a bike ride on the 15-mile long Legacy Bike Trail extending all the way to Venice Beach. Enjoy a picnic under the spreading oaks at Nokomis Community Center. Walk a block to Pocono Trail Preserve where you can bird watch and see Florida wildflowers, or take a guided nature tour. You're just four and half miles from Oscar Scherer State Park, great for bicycling, canoeing or kayaking, plus we're a short drive to the scenic Myakka River.

To the west of Nokomis is a unique barrier island - Casey Key. This is an area of residential estates, all priced over one million dollars with most of the properties being gulf front as well as bay front. There are famous people that have homes here and they enjoy the privacy that Casey Key offers.

There are two "Paw Parks" located just minutes from Casey's Fun 'n Sun Bungalow:

Our experience renting Casey's Fun in the Sun Bungalow was excellent. The thing that impressed us the most was the cleanliness - it was absolutely spotless! The bungalow was spacious and extremely well stocked with amenities from laundry detergent to sunscreen. Customer service was excellent - the owner was available to answer any questions and did so promptly the few times we contacted her. Nokomis is located between Venice and Sarasota with Venice being just a few minutes drive and Sarasota about a 15 minute drive. The closest beach is located just 1 1/2 miles away - we visited it every morning for our walk and several evenings also. The only negative for us was that the area is not really suitable for walking (we drove to the beach every morning for our walk) as you have to access the main route to get to anywhere which is a heavy traffic area. However, beaches and shopping are just a short drive away. If you choose to entertain the bungalow has a very nice yard equipped with lawn chairs and a gas grill. The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star rating is that all the windows need replacing and the location was a little too quiet for us. It was necessary to drive everywhere - dining, beaches, shopping, and attractions.

We had a great time at the sun n fun bungalow in Nokomis. The location was great. We enjoyed the Nokomis beach every day. The bungalow had everything we needed and was beautifully supplied. It is just right for a fun vacation. We hope to return as soon as possible.

Comfortable, clean Florida cottage centrally located for our busy weeks of visiting our friends south in Englewood and Port Charlotte and north in Sarasota, Bradenton and Tampa. The bathrobes left for our use were a very nice touch. Kitchen, while small, was very well stocked and workable. WiFi access easy. Found plenty of nice restaurants (Pop's) and ice cream (Nokomis Orange Grove) in area. Washer/Dryer on property a plus. We were not familiar with the set-up on the televisions and therefore had some difficulty turning them on and off. Small TV screen in bedroom took some getting used to. Great customer service.

I came down to Nokomis with my boyfriend for a relaxing vacation following my college graduation. I wanted a cosy home that was central to the beaches and restaurants. Safe to say, I was more than satisfied with bungalow. The location was a short drive down to the beach and only a short drive down to Seista Key. We spent most of our timeout an about, visiting the Mote Aquarium, snorkeling, and enjoying the sunshine. At night we enjoyed watching the sunset on the beach and even listening to the local Drum Circle. One aspect of the bungalow that we loved was the fire pit. We cooked up some bratwursts and sat around the fire for hours. I would definitely return to the bungalow on my next visit!

This little bungalow was perfect for a quiet getaway to the beach. Nokomis has a great small-town feel to it and the beach was only 5 minutes away. The bungalow had all the amenities we needed including beach towels and chairs, bicycles and a bbq grill.
