We had a great time
House was clean, had beautiful view.
Great location and really comfortable house
Just got back from a spending a week here with my wife, kids and parents.
The house was even better than pictured online. High ceilings and big bright rooms gave it such an open, airy feeling. There were 7 of us all together and there was more than enough space for everyone.
We spent lots of time in and around the pool. It was super clean and nice - probably the most clear pool water I've ever seen.
We also enjoyed the proximity to Nokomis beach. We stayed in Venice last year and never came to Nokomis beach. I'm glad we checked it out this year! It's really great. The water was nice and clear and the sand was smoother than the Venice beach sand (and the water didn't drop off as steep).
Finally, my sons and I enjoyed fishing from the dock. We only caught catfish using shrimp as bait. I think we'll try some different bait next time we're in FL fishing. But it was still fun!
We're already hopeful to come back next year - it's a great house in a great area for family vacations!
Love Dona Bay
Great views and loved the layout of the house. Enjoyed the pool, seeing dolphins and all the wonderful birds. Bryan was terrific and assisted us promptly when there were any issues. Looking forward to returning to the Nokomis area in 2020.
Best vacation ever!!
Just finished a wonderful month in one of the most comfortable homes in Nocomis. The weather was perfect and so was our perfect accommodations. The beds were the best we have ever had in a rental. Everything in the house was so clean and was well stocked with everything we needed. Bryan, the owner, lived next door and was so kind while working to keep the pool warm and cleanfor us. We cannot say enough good about this property, the area, and the owner. We hope to spend another January in this wonderful home by the Bay😊
Absolutely fabulous. Best vacation house we have stayed at.
Our vacation was our best ever. The home was extremely spacious and had absolutely everything we needed. I mean everything. There wasn’t anything I wished I had cause if I didn’t bring it, it was there.
Bryan said he would have the pool warm for us and it was. My family used it morning, day and night everyday even in the low 50 degree weather.
The dock was amazing for my family. They are all big on fishing and the dock was wonderful. They scheduled two fishing charter trips and while those were fun neither one of them compared to the dock fishing. They caught many fish and all different kinds.
The house is located very close to great restaurants, shopping, beaches and bait shop. Pretty much everything was a short distance away. And Siesta Key Beach (softest white beach ever) was just a short drive away.
There were labels on everything and explanations for everything.
The view is amazing at all times of the day and pretty much from anywhere you stand in the home.
I could really go on and on about how much we LOVED this home.
Thank you Bryan for sharing your amazing home and we can’t wait to come back!!
Wow, Best review ever! I am so glad you had a great time. I am very aware we offer something unique in a vacation experience. The views are amazing. The pool and privacy are fantastic. I take great pride in maintaining the home. I have had so many five star reviews over the years, I don't usually chime in. But kudos to such good writing on this well thought out review. This was a typical experience in our vacation house, but this was the best review ever!
Located about 1.5 miles from both Venice Beach and Nokomis Beach. Only 10 miles to Sarasota and 60 miles to Tampa and 120 miles to Orlando. Make a side trip to Busch Gardens, Tampa and of course, Disney in Orlando. Or just relax at our fine beaches, play golf and tennis year round, many fine restaurants and local activities.
