This is a wonderful home. It is amazingly comfortable, fully equipped with everything you would need for a stay in sunny Florida: beach chairs, beach blanket, and grill. The quiet patio is perfect for morning coffee under the palm tree. The bedrooms were comfy, for us and our sons, and my daughter said the couch was so comfortable, she didn't even bother to pull it out to make a bed - she just curled up in her blanket and pillow and zonked out.
The kitchen is fully appointed with everything you need, the home has cable and Wifi, and everything was spotless and clean.
Shore Road is perfectly situated in Nokomis. My wife and I grew up in Sarasota, and Shore Road is perfectly situated between all of our family and friends in Sarasota and Venice/Englewood. Grocery shopping, restaurants, the beach, and anything else you may need are literally minutes away, and the beach/North Jetty is an easy 10-15 minute walk through the quiet neighborhood.
Last, but certainly not least, are the hosts themselves. John and his wife are right next door, very welcoming and accommodating. Check-in/check-out was simple, and John was very accessible via email, text and phone leading up to our stay, which was great, seeing as how we were coming from Nashville, TN. They truly made all five of us (wife, myself and 3 children) fell completely welcome and "at home."
We cannot wait for our next trip to Nokomis to stay at the Ehlen's!!!
