We've spent a week at this cottage every year for the last 3 summers. The cottage is located within walking distance to a private ferry which brings you to a private beach - one of the nicest beaches for searching for shark's teeth and other cool shells. It's also a short drive to several other nearby beaches and parks. Shamrock Park is close by (about a mile away) with access to a bike path that you can take to Venice. It took my teenage son about 40 minutes to bike there in the summer heat! If you don't want to bike to Venice, it's about 15 minutes away by car and a really cute little town with lots of good restaurants and cute shops. Nokomos Beach is a short drive as well and we love going to the drum circle on Wednesday and Sunday nights to watch the sunset! It's a great base for exploring the area - Sarasota is just up the road and a fun day trip. We've rented paddle boards while we were there and recently discovered Snook Haven and rented canoes for a few hours. I've just returned and am already looking forward to my next stay!
