Nokomis is not a municipality or an unincorporated community. It can be more accurately described by lucky homeowners as one of the best-kept real estate secrets in Florida. With a population under 5,000 and a handful of outstanding neighborhoods, Nokomis is the best housing market that few people seem to know about in Sarasota County.
This section of Sunshine State enjoys historical status as the site of the first public beach of Sarasota County; to this effect, the Nokomis Beach Pavilion has been recognized as an Old Florida landmark and was restored a few years ago. Nokomis’s legacy as a fishing village lives on with a few seafood markets and restaurants. Bay Point is one of the most historical residential communities here, and this is where home shoppers will find Florida ranch-style homes for under $200K competing for curbside appeal against $4M Colonial Island mansions.
Casey Key is the premier waterfront housing market in Nokomis, and the beachfront homes here tend to be very stately. Home shoppers looking for a golf community will find Calusa Lakes irresistible; this is a neighborhood where reasonable estates are neatly arranged around the forests and ponds in one of Florida’s most scenic golf courses.
Other lifestyle options available in Nokomis include the boating and fishing community of Shakett Creek Pointe, where residents enjoy their own private docks and fishing piers. Many families are attracted to Nokomis by its wholesome Old Florida feel and the fine schools serving the community, which include the legendary Pine View academy.
Nokomis is located between the prosperous cities of Sarasota and Venice. All the comforts of suburban life can be found in the commercial districts near the Tamiami Trail. In the past, seasonal residents and retirees were particularly attracted to the condominiums and villas in the area, but the current trend of house hunters is mostly made up of families and young professionals looking for prosperity and quality of life.
