Our family of 4 booked directly with Chuck, who started us off right with a relaxed welcome to the “best place to stay in Venice Beach/Nokomis.” We had two changes to our lodging, because the first two weren’t up to his standards (one for needed AC repairs, and another for more cleaning). Chuck cheerfully upgraded us to a 2 bedroom/1 bath cottage. Folks, it was adorable, and immaculately maintained. Do stay in a cottage if you are able, especially with kids, it’s the bee’s knees! The place has an old Florida motel vibe but is upgraded and so tidy, it looks like your granny might have just left to get some ingredients to bake cookies. (Sorry, cookies not included). It was quiet and tucked away off the main road. Kids said they have had better WiFi, but we were glad to unplug them for a weekend.
Although we had the unfortunate experience of visiting the area when red tide had littered the beaches with fish and irritating fumes, the pool was a lovely escape. The kids were happy to splash around. When the beaches cleared enough on Sunday to seek out shark teeth, Chuck bookended our trip by letting us check out later. How gracious and kind! We will certainly return. It was just right for us!More
