Welcome to Nokomis
Bordered by the culturally rich cities of Sarasota and Venice, Nokomis is justifiably known for its beautiful seashore, shopping opportunities and cultivated residential areas. The unincorporated town includes Nokomis Beach, at the south end of exclusive Casey Key. Nokomis offers lovely Gulf beaches and fishing, as well as its boat launch ramp and beautiful shoreline. This area is laid back-even for the Fortune 500 executives and celebrities who choose the barrier island of Casey Key as a tropical escape. Here, everybody is just as captivated by the sunset as the stock market. They’re on Island time. Homes on Casey Key start in the millions and just go up. Some of the Gulf Coast’s most magnificent estates and family retreats are located on this non-commercial barrier island either facing the Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota Bay or both!
Active residents and visitors enjoy the Legacy Bike Trail, numerous golf courses, a gun club with trap, skeet and sporting clays, Oscar Scherer State Park and the Myakka River where you can kayak, photograph rare birds and see alligators up close. The beaches of Siesta Key, Nokomis, and Venice are minutes away. On the mainland home prices range from the $200’s to the millions, usually based on water views and access to the Gulf of Mexico for some of the best beaches and fishing anywhere.
